Absolute Love by Erin Everleigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My mind has become consumed with anger, bitterness and resentment. With my mother gone, pieces of my past have been lost forever. I had desperately tried to respect my mother’s wishes and not ask about my father. But deep inside, not knowing the truth left me feeling empty and incomplete – as if a part of me were locked away, just beyond my grasp. I'd always assumed that my mother would eventually tell me the truth – when she was ready. But now that she is gone, I don’t know how to cope with the fact that I will never truly understand who I am.
Justin doesn’t understand. I don’t think he ever really understood why it was so important for me to get answers. I should have known better than to try to talk to him about what I was feeling. I wish I could rid myself of these terrible thoughts and haunting dreams. But I can’t and I'm spiraling out of control. I feel myself slipping away from reality and from those around me. I'm keeping everyone at a distance. I'm terrified to let anyone see the person I’ve become. But in doing so, I'm alienating every person who was ever close to me and feel more alone than ever.

This is book one in the Absolute Series.
This is Phoebe's story.
I gave this book 5 stars.
What happens when you lose one of the most important people in your life. A parent. Well Phoebe finds out, she is never the same and pushes her perfect life that she thought she had away. Her husband Justin does whatever he can to hang on to the love of his life. When secrets come out will they help her or will they push her further into the hole that she has created for herself?
This was a touching, loving story. It pulled at my heart because i have lost my mother also. Phoebe is a very strong character that just had her life turned upside down by life, and that would change anyone. I loved Justin and how loving and understanding he was. This is a story that will stay with you long after you have read it. It will grab a hold and not let you go. It is a page turner. Thank you Erin for your wonderful story. I look forward to reading more from you in the future.
