"It was like he saw love as this consistent thing that never wavered or weakened, but then again, I'd never hurt him the way he'd hurt me."
"He had trouble and seduction in his eyes, and when they were aimed at you, it was hard not to fall victim to both"
" I'd married Derek, hoping his love would make me worthy but never once asking myself if he was worthy of mine"
"All my dreams, my life, my love, had been reduced to liquid and ash"
Penelope didn’t have the easiest life growing up, but she decided early on to learn from her mother’s mistakes. She decided she wasn’t going to rely on a man or look for love, her greatest purpose was to accomplish her goals first. She wanted the security she never had before, but she wanted that security to come from herself.
The story is told in present tense but there are moments of reflection where we get to see her past. The first is seeing Penelope meet Derek. Derek is a sexy Marine who pursues Penelope with everything he has until she gives in. You see these swoon-worthy moments, but know things didn’t work out as planned. It’s ten years later and Penelope discovers Derek has been cheating on her.
First, there is nothing in the world like cheating. It affects people on so many levels and makes them doubt everything they knew. It affects their self-esteem, self-worth and question the trust they thought they had. Penelope’s failing marriage also reminds her of how she gave up her whole life for Derek. Her whole adult life was dedicated to being what he wanted and in the end, it wasn’t enough.
Seeing Penelope struggle and hurt broke my heart. I completely felt for this woman and as the story progressed grew to love her. As I was reading I was her biggest fan. I loved her perseverance, determination, and fire. I love how she had her moments of sadness and pity, how she mourned the loss of the life she thought she would have, but I really loved seeing her move on. Penelope is one of my favorite characters because it would be easier to give up, but she refused. She is a fighter and I admire that so much in characters and people in general.
Liquid & Ash is so much more than a love story to me. It’s more of a story of loving yourself and being the person you are supposed to be. Love shouldn’t make you give up who you are, true love supports your dreams. I love that Penelope was true to herself and I love that she found what she was looking for, peace.
I cannot recommend this story enough because I think this story is just more. It’s more than a sad story, it’s more than a love story, it’s more than a story about loss. It’s a story that reminds you to be true to yourself, to love without condition and love people where they are. This story is an emotional, gut-wrenching read, but the part that truly blows my mind is how absolutely beautifully it is written. Liquid & Ash is one of my all-time favorite reads!

I would of given more stars but I found the ending to hurried and I mean the last two pages.
The book was too good too profound to end like that.Read more
