Words Left Unsaid by Missy Johnson

At 8:28 I was the girl who had everything.
At 8:29 my whole world fell apart.
A split second can change your life. I learned this the hard way. I wasn't ready to let him go. Even when the terms "vegetative state" and "will never recover" were thrown around I held onto hope. I mean, miracles happen, right?
We deserved our happy ending.
Three years later and I'm still hoping. In my heart I know I have to let him go but how can I? He's the only man I've ever loved. He's my soul mate. My life.
Then I meet Max. He's everything Aiden isn't and as much as I'm trying to fight my feelings, I'm losing. I don't want to fight anymore.
I need to live my life.
I need to move on.

But in order to move forward I need to let go of the past.
4 star read.
ARC received with thanks from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was a complete emotional heart wrenching rollercoaster of a read and my most recent ugly cry book. It makes you take a step back and look at your life and all credit to this goes to the author. The book was heartbreaking throughout but so well wrote that she made the characters so real it made you feel every emotion along with them. I've never read anything from this author before and I cant wait to read more after this. 
Kiara had everything she could want in life, a loving fiancé, and a beautiful daughter, she was young and happy. One night her happiness was taken away from her with tragedy befallen Aiden her fiancé. Three years later she's still not been able to move on. Her fiancés still in a coma with no chance at getting better, in a unresponsive state but his parents aren't willing to let him go. She visits him every week and even though she knows he wont get better she feels guilty for even thinking let alone trying to move on. Things might change though when her sister Ellie decides to take matters into her own hands and sets her up on a blind date with Max. 

Max is Ellie's partners Grants friend. He's just accepted a principals position at the local school and has been on a lot of disastrous dates set up by Grant so he's surprised when he sees Kiara. There's a lot of ups and downs throughout and without giving to much away I loved how Max and Kiara wasn't just a jump in bed thing, you could feel the internal battle she had and the guilt she felt for even been around Max. Question is will Kiara be able to ever move on and will Max still be there when she is ready?

It will be 99c until June 16 and then back to the regular price of $3.99
