Asher (Ashes & Embers Book 6) Kindle Edition
I should have died.
I should have been forgotten.
But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.
Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass frontman. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.
Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.
Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.
Used to be.
And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.
I’m told that’s me.
But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place. A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit. I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?
* Asher can be read as a single book.

I have been intrigued by Ember's story throughout the A & E series, however this story was more than I could have ever expected.
I knew going in that this was going to be an emotional story, however I was not expecting the toll this was going to take on me. I wanted to turn each page, however I had to put it aside a time or two to give myself a breathe.
Asher was all killer, no filler. The reader does not get a break from what is happening, so make sure you are ready to be mentally exhausted as you keep reading.
This is a story that I feel that the reader needs to just dive in and ride the wave - and make sure they have a strong grip, as they are going to need it. IT is raw, gritty andd powerful.
Asher is everything any woman (or man) could ask for in a partner. I loved seeing more of the Valentine extended family as I was reading.
I will love this book twice - now and forever
During the 8 years of her absence, Asher concentrated on raising their daughter and caring for his wife while praying for a miracle. Fortunately, it did come but at what price?
Ember is awake but has no recollection of her past. A gut-wrenching reality for everyone involved. Asher wants his wife back at any cost, while Ember feels like an impostor. Can she put her faith in the one man who never wavered at her side while she finds herself?
This was hard to read in parts. Watching Asher bend over backwards to help his wife regain her memory. Trying everything to reconnect and getting Ember to fall back in love with him again. It was devastating. Meanwhile Ember's amnesia made her detached and inhospitable. It would take something extraordinary and questionable to lead them back to each other.
Bloody hell, I knew this book was going to ruin me. This was a slow journey for two people who once had achieved eternal love. A man who never lost faith and allowed his heart's song to keep him strong and resilient throughout. Asher was certainly the standout for me. At times I had to dig deep for sympathy towards Ember. Her actions were hard to swallow. If true love exists, it's this.

The depth of feelings and understanding of TBI was without doubt proves the level of research This author went to. She puts her heart and soul into the story of Asher and Ember. She takes us on a journey of recovery with the rollercoaster emotions of learning to love the new you when the trauma is so deep as TBI, like ripples on a pond affecting everyone, family friends and loved ones.
The beautiful story of Asher and Ember was worth every minute of the wait. Carian has done herself proud with this. One book I would recommend to anyone!
I loved every moment and felt the introduction of characters we know and love (or hate - Sydni!) from Carian's other books was a bonus.
I think I'll now re-read Torn so that I can remind myself of all the clues to Asher's and Ember's story, then I'll read Asher again.
Carian has held out a teaser telling us Jude's story will be next. Can't wait.😉
This author is wonderfully talented and never disappoints. I envy anyone who discovers Carian's writing for the first time.
