"She killed a part of me - the part that trusts when someone tells you they love you, and allows you to trust that person with your heart."
Ness and Evan return to Leeds from Europe, and begin their new life together. But the past Evan has buried for years resurfaces and threatens their future.
After fifteen years, Evan doesn't want any contact with the woman who abandoned him, but is unwillingly pulled into his mother's life.
Feeling pushed aside by Ness's focus on her studies and new friends, Evan can't confide in Ness about what's happening. This return to his old behaviour adds more distance to their relationship. When Ness's new friend Ollie picks up the pieces because Evan is away, Evan's insecurities threaten their relationship further.
Then the decision about the future of the relationship is taken out of their hands by something that could end things between Ness and Evan forever.
Praise for Because of Lucy: "Her uncanny ability to write a good heart grabbing story blows me away. This book was so sweet, but also had moments of pure heartbreak. ~ Bookalicious Babes Book Blog
