He has been best friends with Emersyn since they were ten years old. And now that Emersyn is dealing with the loss of her husband who was also her musical partner, Eli is there as her friend, confidante, and protector. She is lonely, sad, lost, and fading away. And in an attempt to help pull her out of her funk, he invites her to join Jacob's Ladder and tour with them.
They had always just thought of each other as friends. But close quarters on the bus, some friend dates , and newfound jealousy start to make them see each other in a different light. Suddenly there is some tension and some unresolved, hidden feelings brewing. As they are thrust into situations that test their resolve, it just gets more magnified. Temptation, changing feelings, and attraction are overshadowed by fear and guilt.
Eli knows she is vulnerable and not ready. She doesn't think Eli wants a relationship or thinks about her in that way. They're stuck in friend-zone limbo and afraid to push at the boundaries and afraid to risk losing each other. But the sexual tension, emotional turmoil, and feelings cast them into a situation neither is really prepared to deal with and ends up causing even more issues. And soon they are facing the one thing that they did not want to happen...their close bond turning awkward and the possible risk of losing a lifelong friend. Emersyn has already known terrible loss that nearly destroyed her, and she still has serious fears, confusion, and a tendency to try to avoid difficult situations. And Eli is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and is afraid he will never live up to a ghost. My heart seriously hurt for him as he struggled with his feelings and pain.
This will come down to fighting themselves, their fears, and even each other...but will they be able to win the fight for each other's heart and a future together?
I loved Eli and Emersyn! It was important to get both of their points of view since they were in their heads a lot. Their history and closeness made them so strong in some ways, but also made changing their dynamic challenging. They had so much to lose, but the potential to gain much more...but it was a big risk due to how tied up their lives were.
I enjoyed getting more with Gabe and Rae, and Abby and Jake. I like their close bonds, interpersonal dynamics, and humor. This story seemed more emotional than Gabe's and really tugged at my heartstrings as they struggled with their changing emotions. But it was also funny, sweet, romantic, and sexy. I love these characters and have thoroughly enjoyed revisiting these siblings in this Jacob's Ladder series.
Emersyn (Sonny) Wallace and Eli Renard have been best friends for over 20 years, since they were 10 years old. They love each other like brother and sister and know about what is going on with each other's lives. When tragedy struck Emersyn, Eli was there to help his friend get through the hardest time of her life. He and his siblings even offered her a job playing with their band, Jacob's Ladder.
As they tour together, Eli is always making sure that Sonny is ok with everything that is happening around her. He always knows what she needs before she even realizes what she needs. He is always there to cheer her up and they do fun and crazy things together. Once each of them start to realize that they have romantic feelings toward each other, they both fight their feelings because they are afraid to lose their friendship. Sonny and Eli each struggle on their own with their growing feelings for each other and it just breaks your heart to watch these 2 soulmates afraid to confess their true feelings. Eli has the added issues of thinking that he will always come in second best with Sonny's past. When they both finally confess their feelings to each other, it is great to see how perfect they are for each other. They just have a few obstacles to overcome with their pasts.
Eli is the perfect friend and partner. He knows how to enjoy life but also knows how to care for the people that he loves. And the things that he comes up with to show Sonny how to have fun is creative and funny! I really love this couple!
“I’m seriously surprised the mirror didn’t shatter.” “Whatever,” she replied. When my gaze zeroed in on the area directly above her cleavage, Emersyn shoved me. “Jeez, didn’t you get a good enough look a few minutes ago?” “What are you talking about?” “You’re staring at my boobs.” I laughed. “Trust me, I’m not staring at your tits.” “You could have fooled me,” she huffed, pulling the towel tighter against her. “You still have the scar.” “Excuse me?” With my index finger, I motioned to the slightly discolored area below her collarbone. “The scar you got that time we were climbing trees.” Emersyn’s eyes widened. “You remember that?” “You scared the hell out of me. No lie. I can still hear the thump sound when you fell to the ground.” Pinching her eyes shut, Emersyn began reliving the memory. “You were reaching your hand out to me when my foot slipped on the limb. A branch jabbed me in the chest as I fell. When I landed, it knocked the breath out of me.” Her eyes popped open as a small smile curved on her lips. “I’ll never forget the look on your face—you were pale as a sheet. The worst part was I couldn’t tell you I was all right.” I grinned. “I’m not going to lie I probably pissed my pants a little that day.”
I love Eli’s caring, loving, protectiveness when it comes to Emersyn and how he does and will do anything to make her, feel happy and better again when she’s so depressed.
Again I feel really sorry for what Emersyn had to go through, but come on, lol did her and Eli bump their heads at some point? How did they not see their connect a lot sooner, haha.
“Words can lie, but the heart never will. With every beat, it brings in love and gives it out. That’s why it’s the strongest muscle in the body.”
The whole time you just can’t help but fall more and more in love with the way Eli truly cares for Emersyn. You also can’t help rooting for the both of them, even when they both secretly are afraid to take that step and are also, afraid that they could lose their friendship.
Emersyn can’t help but feel guilty one minute then scared of not having Eli there for her the next. She knows she can’t keep feeling depressed the way she does and has to let her self be happy and to live. Sometimes it’s not always that easy and you just have to learn to take each day one at a time.
“Sometimes you had to go through the darkest times to appreciate the blessing of light in your life. Sometimes you found that the other half you had been desperately searching for all your life had been standing next to you all along.”
Eli and Emersyn are really special and I just love how they’re
story ends. It breaks your heart at times, but truly is the best.
