Title: Shouldn’t Have You

Series: Fractured Connections #2

Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 21, 2019
I’ve been many things in my life: daughter,
friend, student, lover, wife…and now, widow. Getting past those labels and
finding who I could be without them was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Then I became friends with Brendon Connolly.
Every time I look at him, I see a past, I see
a present, and I’m afraid if I look too hard, I’ll see a future.
I’ve known Harmony Wynham since before she got
married. Before she lost everything. I didn’t know that one day she wouldn’t be
just my friend but the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
Only I don’t think that can happen.
Not when every time she looks at me, she sees
what she lost, and I can only see what I can’t overcome.
I love her, even though I shouldn’t. Somehow,
we need to find a balance.
Because if we don’t, walking away will be the
hardest thing I’ve ever done—even if it’s the only thing I should do.

My Review
I have come to love this series so much. This band of women and band of brothers are just heart breaking and so damn admirable at the same time. Each of them is going through their own struggle and I love seeing each of them get put back together. This book was definitely different than the last, which I loved. I think each of their stories is going to be so unique.

I loved Harmony and Brendon in the first book, so I was really curious about how Carrie Ann was going to go about their match up. Friendship is so important, and I loved how they started as such good friends. Being able to have that person to call at the end of a bad day is so amazing. Some of my favorite romances start as friendships, and I think this one was so special in so many ways. These two had a lot to overcome because of Moyer. They both wanted to make sure that their feelings were pure and that Moyer still mattered. That was soooo special!

Watching Harmony date was soooo hysterical! As someone entering the dating scene, I almost hope I have some of those bad dates just for a laugh! The best part though was how her friends and Brendon reacted. I loved how Sienna and Violet come to her rescue more than once. I also loved how Cameron, Aiden and Dillon did the same thing for Brendon. These bands of men and women are so strong!

I really can’t say too much without giving anything away (as if I haven’t already babbled), but this book was truly amazing. It was so well written and it is perfectly emotional. I always love Carrie Ann’s writing, but this series is very different and I love everything about that.
