“Holy heartache! Regrets slayed my heart. Angst-lovers, this book is not to be missed. Brilliant writing from Nicole Dykes. I couldn’t ask more from a book!” -L.J. Shen, USA Today bestselling author
5 Redemption Crowns
Wow just wow, Nicole has taken us on an emotionally intense and healing journey of one family’s descent into grief and each individual’s path to acceptance. The Sterling’s have owned a piece of my heart and soul since the first book, each of these characters trials and tribulations to overcome their anguish and try and move on with their lives; not to forget those they’ve lost but to accept that they aren’t coming back and they deserve to be happy will touch your soul.
But no one’s journey was more powerful than Asher and Viv’s. Asher is the youngest and has been dealing with not only losing his brother but essentially losing his entire family in the process. Each one handled their grief in their own ways, but they left Asher to handle it alone. Asher has some deep rooted feelings of abandonment that he has to overcome in order to really accept the tragedy and move on from it. The growth that he has during his duet was gut wrenching, it was hard to sit back and watch as he self-destructed but then as the pages progress and the story moves on you see him slowly coming to terms with his loss. But the main reason he’s able to that is Viv. She helps him see that even though Colt is gone he still deserves to be happy.
There are some hard revelations that come out in this book, and it makes the characters really have to sit back and look at what was happening around them and Colt. They had to really look at what his life was like at the time, and really dissect why he had chosen to do what he did. Everyone always thought of him as perfect, but no one is and Colt had proven that fact.
This series is not an easy one, Nicole’s words are like a vice grip on your heart and as the story progress that vice gets tighter and tighter until it’s hard to breathe underneath the level of emotions that she elicits. Asher and Viv are absolute perfection together, their connection and love is so strong that you can feel it pour from the pages covering you in the visceral sensations of it. These characters are the kind that live with you long after you’ve finished, not really ever moving on from their stories. This is not just a series, its passion, its strength, it’s healing, it’s addictive, it’s a rebirth of souls and a must read of 2020!
