THE STORY OF US by Tara Sivec Review!!! @TaraSivec


THE STORY OF US by Tara Sivec (June 11, 2017; Forever Yours eBook; $3.99)

How much can a man take before he breaks?

1,843 days. That’s how long I survived in that hellhole. They tried to break me, but I resisted. And I owe it all to the memory of warm summer nights, the scent of peaches, and the one woman who loved me more than I ever deserved to be loved. Now, I’ll do anything to get back to her.

Only Shelby Eubanks isn’t the girl I left behind all those years ago. She’s someone else, a stranger. My Shelby-my little green-eyed firecracker-would never give up her dreams, would never disappear into her mother’s ambitions. But I won’t give up on her. On us. I may be broken, and scarred, and not the man I used to be, but I will do whatever it takes to remind her of the story of us.

Barnes & Noble:






The Story of Us was an incredibly gut wrenching story. I actually cried while reading it and I VERY RARELY cry while reading. Shelby and Eli’s story has a current storyline that could be ripped right out of the headlines and will break even the coldest of hearts.

I can’t even imagine believing that the love of your life is dead for 5 years and then having him reappear after you have moved on. I admire the fact that even though Shelby was confused about her feelings toward Eli she handled seeing him again gracefully. I also understand why she acted the way she did but I was more then happy when she finally found her backbone and stood up to everyone in her life.

Eli’s character was amazing. He was honestly my favorite character in the whole book. What he went through was horrifying. He clung to his live for Shelby to get him through the brutal days and lonely nights that he lived through. I rooted for him the whole book.

The Story of Us had many twists and turns, most that I didn’t even see coming. I tend to prefer Tara’s funny books but I have to say, this is up in the top three of my favorites of her’s now. It is absolutely worth a read!
