Product Description

Product Description

There are five stages of grief.


Losing the love of your life is one of the hardest things anyone would ever have to face.
Especially when your life with them was just beginning.
When tragedy strikes on what should be the happiest time of your life, how are you supposed to pick up the pieces of your life and move on without them?
Two strangers who happen to share a life changing event, come to find solace in each other to help deal with their pain.
One of them feels the guilt of being the reason that a life was lost.
The other guilty for making a last second choice.

Both of them, guilty that they survived.

But what happens when a bond that surfaces from tragedy brings these two strangers together?
Finding comfort in each other as they both deal with the same pain, was never the plan.
Can they look beyond the guilt of the past in order stop themselves dying along with their loved ones, but instead live and learn to love again?

What happens when losing your first love becomes the reason for meeting your one true love?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good concept 30 June 2015

I really liked the idea for this book, but I just wish it was executed better. The speed at which these characters fell for each other didn't seem believable or healthy for that matter. It seemed rushed and the end was pretty predictable. It could also use some more proofreading, because about halfway through the book the main characters swap last names. There's also a waitress that changes her name mid shift. Now I can usually overlook typos and most mistakes, but these are issues that could easily be caught by a good editor or proofreader.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Story With Potential Spoiled By Poor Editing 14 March 2016
By Mo Sytsma - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
**sigh** Here we go again. It seems that I am writing different variations of this same review a lot lately, and it pains me, people. I don’t wanna do it! But I feel that you, as readers, need to know. You look to book reviews to get the good, the bad, and sometimes, the ugly. I’ve got to call ’em like I see ’em.

This was my first book by Cassy Roop. I had heard of her books, but hadn’t picked one up before this. The errors in the blurb alone should have been enough to ward me off, but I held out hope and downloaded the book.

The premise of the story was solid, if not a little predictable, but the execution sadly fell way flat. I was initially drawn in because Cassy Roop employed an interesting tactic at the beginning of the story, a tactic that I thought was smart and original.

Unfortunately, it all kind of fell apart. I couldn’t remain immersed in the story, I kept getting pulled out of the narrative. The culprit? Our familiar old enemy, poor editing. I know that you all have heard me rant about the pervasiveness of bad editing lately, and the plague just keeps spreading. Survivor’s Guilt had the potential to be a perfectly nice heartfelt story, but instead, all of the author’s hard work was for naught.

The storyline took a back seat to the errors. Misspellings, incorrect phrasing, punctuation used incorrectly, and the list goes on. Hell, at one point, a character’s last name changes from one line of the story to the next! How do things like this make it to the final publishing stage? If I’m being perfectly honest, it comes across as sheer laziness on the part of an author. I see that an editor was credited in this work, and I’m not sure if Roop simply ignored her advice, or should be asking for a refund. Most of the mistakes in the copy are blatant, obvious errors that any decent editor and/or proofreader should have caught a mile away.

You have a line edit done on your book? Good. A proofreader checks it out post-edit? Great. Think you’re ready to publish now? NO. It’s not enough. You need more eyes, fresh eyes, eyes attached to people that are far removed from your project. You need to scour your book time and time and time again for any errors you can find. When an untrained reader is finding multiple mistakes PER PAGE, you’ve got a problem.

I’ve asked this before, and I’ll ask it again; WHY should I be expected to give an author MY hard-earned money when it seems painfully obvious that the author has no regard for the reader experience?

It really is a shame when it comes to this novel, because like I said, the bones of this story were good. It was an emotionally charged story with a unique element to it that could have been a standout if the author could have been bothered to put a little more time and attention into this book.

**As I always do when I write a critical review, I invite the author to get in touch with me about specific issues I had with the book, in case they were not already aware of these problems.**

5.0 out of 5 stars This book had all the feelings that you expect with a sweet love story and so many more 5 July 2015
This was a first read for my by Cassy Roop and I can promise you it won’t be my last. This book had all the feelings that you expect with a sweet love story and so many more. The roller coaster that Cassy takes you on in this book is unmatched by many.

When we first start out, this couple is just starting out on their married life together and are on their Honeymoon. Ellie and Jeremy are looking forward to just getting to know each other and enjoy being married to each other. Jeremy surprises Ellie with a boat dinner. They are excited to be able to spend some time on the ocean with other couples that are celebrating just as they are. Once couple had just gotten married 2 days prior and one couple was on there celebrating their Anniversary. While they are out on the trip, the unthinkable happens and there is a freak accident. No one was even prepared for what happened.

When Ellie and Evan wake up in the hospital, their lives are changed once again in a matter of a few days. They have had to go through the happiest times of their lives and now the most upsetting times of their lives in a matter of days from each other. Ellie and Evan knew of each other on the dinner cruise but they had not talked much on the dinner cruise. The ladies had talked and the men had talked but that was about it. The grief process starts for both Ellie and Evan as soon as they realize what has happened to their spouses.

Ellie goes home and finds herself longing to be closer to what she considers where Jeremy is since his body was never found. Soon after returning home, Ellie feels the strong pull back to where they were on their Honeymoon so she can feel closer to Jeremy. Ellie pulls a pretty bold stunt and it just so happens that Evan is on the beach that same day and sees what happens with Ellie and takes off after her in fear that she is going to hurt herself. They have so much bitterness towards each other that they never thought they could help each other work through their problems.

Once Ellie and Evan get past their walls of blaming each other, the connection they feel for each other is one that they can not ignore. I love how these two fell right into each other and are able to help each other get past their struggles they are dealing with. The way that Evan takes care of Ellie is so sweet to see. I am so glad that this book had a HEA for these two since it started out so sad for them. I love the way that Cassy made you feel so close to the characters and made it to where you could relate to the characters so easily. Such a great read. Just have your tissues read!!
5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful story of hope 12 July 2015

This book came along at just the right moment for me. In a reading funk, I opened my Kindle and started reading....and didn't stop until I was finished.

The story is told in a dual pov and I love that. You really got to know what each character was going through. Each faced a terrible loss and each grieved in their own way. While some may say they fell a little fast, I digress. I think they were meant to fall. Some things were a bit unconventional, but you know the saying, everyone grieves differently.

The whole tone of the book flip flopped between hopeful and sadness. It really encapsulated what the characters were going through. If ever two characters deserved to be happy, it is Evan and Ellie. The absolute heartbreak came across the pages so clearly. You will cry with these characters, laugh with these characters and fall in love with these characters. Be sure to have tissues handy as well, you are going to need them.

On a bit of a personal note, I read this story on the upcoming anniversary of a very close friend's death. And while Ellie and Evan's story deals with the loss of a romantic love, the story still struck a chord with me and reminded me that my friend wouldn't want me to be sad. She would want me to live and be happy. Survivor's guilt is something that can devastate a person, I think more than the actual death itself. Having a wonderful support system is key. So not only did the book pull me out of a funk, it did so much more than that. It made me see things a little brighter, a tad more clear and made me realize, it's ok to grieve.

I've had this book for awhile now through the KU program. I knew it was going to be emotional just by the title and was it ever. The first few chapters completely sucked me in, then there was a little twist. From there on the story was a bit predictable but I was okay with that. I liked reading about how they felt and the emotions they were experiencing, the questions they continuously asked themselves. I wanted these characters to have their happy ending. I wanted it to end just the way it did. There were several grammar mistakes and that did throw me off a bit. I had to reread parts several times...but I still enjoyed the book.
My favorite part of the book --- Miss wouldn't be the right word. It is such a small word in the English language, yet is probably one of the most emotional words that there is. Sure, it has a definition, but you never truly understand it's meaning until you have lost someone you loved very deeply. So I can't tell you how much I miss you because there is no word nor definition that could even begin to explain that to you... WOW! This was a good, emotional KU find.
