I loved the dual POV. The past was told by Cole, the present by Evie. This book had a lot of funny surprises, including how much we were in Cole's 16 year old sexed up head. It was REALLY funny. Cole as an adult, not funny, but smoking hot and such a filthy mouth! Evie fought her attraction to him and she was an angry bitch. I wanted to judge Evie - ok I judged Evie - for not forgiving him sooner but her secret changed how I viewed her and helped me understand why she was so mad.
This was a twisty book. It was two different love stories in one, young Cole and Evie and adult Cole and Evie. This book had everything. Love, laughter, death, friendship, lies, misunderstandings, angst, first-times, heartache, romance, sex. It was sometimes too much and became a little too fantastical even for fiction. I also felt there were some items that wrapped up quickly and left me wondering. NO spoilers, but the phone call to her brother that changed everything WAS gut-wrenching.
Overall, I read this book in one day. If you love angsty, soul destroying books, with a redeeming HEA, this is definitely a story you want to read.
"What I see is a girl who is so broken she's shattering into a thousand pieces right in front of me. She's so fragile that I daren't even touch her, but I have to. Because this is my last chance, isn't it, Evie?"
There is too much going on in this book to give anything away....we learn early on that a lie that Cole admits to changes everything. He does it for what he thinks are the right reasons, and I truly felt bad for him. That undermines and changes everything. And while I was frustrated with Evie and her punishment of Cole, part of me understood. I was also very frustrated with Nico during this whole story!!
This story is a whirlwind of ups and downs and Holy Cow, I didn't see that coming's (plural, meaning more than one of those)!! It was a great read and I couldn't put it down when I hit the 50% mark. Excellent read!! I love second chance love stories!!
Our ending broke me. Shattered me. Destroyed me.
I received this copy in exchange for my honest review.

If Only by Beckie Stevenson
When I read the blurb for If Only I immediately was intrigued and signed up to review it. I was really excited to start this book as the storyline is right up my alley! Diving into the book I was immediately drawn in. The story is told through the POV of the two main characters. I, personally, love reading stories like this as I feel you are able to get the complete story and are never left wondering well how did so and so feel about this situation. If Only is the story of Evie and Cole and they have loved each other since their childhood. Unfortunately, all it took was one simple lie to destroy the trust and these two characters had for one another. When life throws them a curve ball and has them working next to one another it is undeniable that the chemistry between Evie and Cole is still there -even after all the years they have been apart. Working together forces these two to not only talk to another one but acknowledge that perhaps things between the them aren’t as over as they once believed. Will they be able to finally bury the hatchet and learn the reason for the single lie that destroyed both of their lives OR will working together finally give them both the closure they desperately need to move on once and for all??
Love, lust, drama, angst, regret, and more drama fill the pages of this novel. As I stated before I was drawn to the storyline of the book and it did not disappointment however for me I found the drama to be a bit over the top and at times I just wanted to shake the two main characters and tell them to get their acts together. However isn’t that what all authors want? They want us to get so into the story that we want to reach into the story and be part of it. So I guess you can say mission accomplished. Besides the drama that I felt was just to much it is an overall good book. I crushed hardcore on Cole as he is a true gentleman with a bad boy streak in him- what lady doesn't love that!! There are some pretty heavy things discussed within the book and the author did a great job at tying up all the loose ends by the end of the story. If you are looking for read that will give you love, lust, drama and angst this story is for you!
