The Absence of Olivia by Anie Michaels

Title: The Absence of Olivia
Author: Anie Michaels
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Women's Lit
 Release Date: October 20, 2015


My name is Evelyn.

I met Devon and instantly fell for him.

Weeks later he fell for my best friend.

Never one to make waves, I watched as they started a life together. I stood by as their family grew, was the maid of honor at their wedding and the godmother to their children. All the while, I was longing for him, watching as he became the perfect husband and father. I was never jealous. I wasn’t even angry that my best friend had the only person I wanted. I had simply resigned myself to living without his love, but still being a part of his life.

Then, one terrible day, my best friend died.

She died and we all struggled to live life without her. Slowly, as the pain eased, our eyes opened and Devon finally saw me.

This is a story about second chances and second choices.

This is the story of how my life changed in the absence of Olivia.

I received a ARC in exchange for a honest review.
4* read.
This was a complete emotional rollercoaster of a read for me my heart felt like it was ripped out in places. I loved the story but my emotions after were completely ruined and it takes a lot to affect me in that way. I never expected this book to affect me the way it did which was why I was pleasantly surprised.
I'm keeping this short and sweet as I don't want to give any of the plot away as I feel it'll spoil it for the reader if they know before hand what happens.

Evie has been friends with Olivia for years and been in love with Olivia's husband Devon forever. When Olivia is no longer around Evie has to pick up the pieces and support Olivia's husband and two kids. What happens when Evie and Devon get closer? You'll need to read it to find out but trust me this book will rip your emotions apart but its worth it to read this gripping and moving story.
