When Adam proposes to Sarah, the last thing he expects is to be single and heartbroken less than forty-eight hours later. But Sarah has a secret, and she's willing to sacrifice everything to keep it.
Going through a break-up is hard enough but having to live together afterwards is even worse, especially when it's a break-up neither person wants. For Adam, only ways to deal with it are drinking and partying. For Sarah, it's keeping her distance and her secrets.
Against a backdrop of lies, betrayals and passion, the delicate threads holding Sarah's secret begin to unravel when her past and present collide.
Romantic, intense and heartbreaking, Together Apart explores what it really means to love and be loved.
Adam and Sarah are perfect for each other, everyone says so and Adam knows so. When he proposes he pictures a life together not Sarah saying no and them breaking up. Sarah knows that she isn’t worthy of Adam’s love and that he will be better without her. When Adam finds her childhood diaries he begins to start piecing Sarah’s past together. The closer he gets to the truth the further away Sarah seems.
I generally try not to read blog or GoodReads reviews before I read a book as I want to go into it a blank slate. I saw some less than stellar reviews of Together Apart and was hesitant to read it. I wish I had read it sooner. It looks like there was a previous version published as an e-book last year and that was the one with the reviews, so I’m guessing this version has been polished as it was very emotional and well written. The book I read was polished and had a great storyline. It is rare in a “love story gone wrong” book to be from the male perspective where the female is the bad guy character. Adam was much more nuanced than Sarah and I really felt his pain and loss. The secret aspect added a nice twist that I honestly did not figure out until it unfolded. I enjoyed Together Apart and it was nice to read a typically female story from the male perspective.
