Our Review

‘Love is tragic. Love is painful and brutal, but above all, within true love, there is a beauty matched by nothing else. ‘

Well, what a different side to Stevie J Cole we witnessed in A Love So Tragic. This lady is proving to be such a creatively versatile author and an automatic 1click for us! We’ve tasted the gritty, we’ve winced at the ugly and now we’ve fallen in love with the romantic, if not extremely angsty, side of this incredibly talented author.

“I want her. I want the life we should’ve had. I want everything that was taken from me, and that’s a bad thing.’

Heartbreaking, beautiful, tragic, frustrating, painful….LOVE Stevie J Cole….you made us crazy with this book, you made us fall in love with a romantic, beautiful and sensitive man, you brought an honesty to this story and you made us cry!

“Love is an unusual creature. It’s painfully beautiful but brings out some of the darkest, ugliest parts of your heart.”

When love hits you so deeply, when every breath you take is a reminder of a love who shouldn’t have got away, it’s hard to forget them when they’re etched deep into your soul. How do you deal when you’ve married the man who wasn’t your soulmate? It’s very easy to say ‘listen to your heart’ but with that comes the pain of betraying those in your life.

‘Letting go of your past is hard, and sometimes you just have to accept you’ll never be able to completely let some things go.’

The story had such an enormous effect on us both because it felt real, personal and from the heart. It was as though the emotions were seeping directly from the soul of this author onto the pages, aiming directly to our hearts. This is a potent, passionate, conflicting and consuming love story.

‘We will never be anything more than strangers who used to be in love with each other, and as tragic as that fuck was, it’s life.’

In the middle of this tragedy is Peyton and boy did we want to shake some sense into this young lady. The decisions she made and the justifications for her actions were immature and though she acknowledged to her faults and did regret them, she never really did redeem herself completely in our eyes.  Peyton was the instigator and the cause and the word ‘frustrating’ doesn’t even cover her actions!

Nic was the glue that held A Love So Tragic together. His all-encompassing love for Peyton made him the hero in this story and we fell in love with this man heart and soul. Oh, what a romantic. His letters…his poems….swooooon!  We felt everything Nic experienced. When he hurt, we hurt. When he was angry, so were we. This guy loved with all his heart and he held ours in the palm of his very capable hands.

“You were always mine, Peyton, and then one day you weren’t. You have no idea how hard that was for me.”

Well played Stevie J Cole! You manipulated our feelings with your vague descriptiveness about one particular character. Had we been given more than what you provided, our dislike for Peyton would have risen to stratospheric proportions! Very clever writing indeed!

This is a story of deep, soul reaching love that painfully yet beautifully communicated the inner turmoil experienced by these characters. Stevie J Cole you moved us implicitly! And that ending….tissues required!

“You broke my heart…..”

Synopsis

Promises. 
We all make them. Sometimes we break them. But what happens when the promise you break haunts your dreams, when that moment of betrayal echoes within every last beat of your heart? 

Love. 
Love is passionate, painful, and all consuming in the most brutal yet beautiful way. How many people have you said ‘I love you’ to? Five, ten, maybe no one? I’ve said that word to two men, but only one where I felt it. 

Tragic. 
This word sums up my relationship with Nicolas: devastating, painful, depressing. 
A first love that should have lasted a lifetime, but I ruined with a stupid decision. Nicolas is my star crossed lover, and even though Shakespeare has taught me that stories such as ours always end in tragedy, I can’t not love him, even if I’m married to someone else.
