Standalone soulmate second chance angsty romance

SYNOPSIS
Ben Brahms shed his glasses, gangly body, and a life long pact to attend an Ivy League college with his best friend the day the world took on a sinister hue. With his outward appearance matching his new career as a Navy SEAL, Ben is saving the world…literally, at the expense of everything he gave up. A whole life.

Her.

Harper Rosehall honors the pact. She takes on, and then dominates college on the opposite coast. Always the geek, and always behind socially—especially with men, she blossoms. With her moral compass guiding her, she finds herself drawn back to San Diego and all she left behind.

Him.

With memories from their pasts haunting every interaction and decision in their present—and future, their timing never seems to be quite right.

A marriage.
A baby.
Nothing.

Some friendships last the test of time, can Ben and Harper’s stand the tests of life?
Life doesn’t care what you love, it takes it away anyways. 

LIFE PLUS ONE is available to purchase below

 ‘Standing on the edge of forever, I can only save one person from spiralling into the abyss. It will be him. Always him.’

This story is a story of childhood and friendship. Of love and life all wrapped up in a vivid bow of angst and missed opportunities. We never rested once, reading Life Plus One, there simply wasn’t a chance of catching one’s breath.

Best friends since the early years of innocence, Ben and Harper have never left each other’s side and every first in life they’ve discovered together, thick as thieves. When life alters their paths a physical tie is cut, but can two hearts ever be separated no matter what obstacle is placed in their way?

“You’re my blind spot, Harper. I can’t see around you.”

Awareness and understanding is a wonderful thing but many times we are blind to what’s right in front of our face. Sometimes we don’t realise the truth until the time has passed or life has made it too late. What can you do other than lament over what could have been or the heaviness or loss suffered as a consequence? Love is never easy nor is it black or white. It is multi-coloured, can shine so bright, be a comforting blanket yet at the same time love can be dulled, lose its spark or be halted in its tracks. How we define it, react to it or the actions we take in its name can change our lives.

‘Love sews souls together. Life picks at the stitches.’

We loved Ben and Harper’s story, granted it wasn’t an easy read for its heartbreak and angst nor the decisions taken, yet it was a story of a love of grand proportions that weathered many storms. Be prepared to want to throw your kindle out of frustration, this is definitely one for readers who relish when true love is tested.
