A Life Less Beautiful by Elle Brooks
Ellis Hughes has loved the girl next door since he was ten-years-old. She was his sun, moon, and every visible star in a clear night sky. She was also his biggest regret.
When a terrible accident rips Ellis and Harlow apart, it shatters both their hearts beyond repair. More than a decade later, Ellis has paid his penance, but his regret still lingers, and the love he once harbored for his childhood sweetheart has never faded.
What Ellis believes has been destroyed forever, slowly comes back to life, only for a cruel twist of fate to intervene. Knowing he cannot live his life without Harlow in it, he faces the ultimate test of selflessness.
He must sacrifice his own heart to mend hers.
GAH!!! Elle… you own my heart and soul… this book… is just… GAH!!! wow!
Elle has woven a tale so intricate, so beautiful, so raw… it couldn’t be less beautiful if she tried!
You meet Harlow and Ellis at the tender age of 11. Their meeting is pretty intense! especially for Ellis. :). This encounter brings them into a tried and true friendship that spans decades…. they experience soooo much together.. the happy and sad.. the pain and love. Most of those emotions seem to go hand in hand.. and it is so true for them.
Ellis and Harlow suffer through their love… Epic and beautiful.. and so very tragic. There is sooooo much I want to say about this amazing story.. but you just have to dive in… guard your heart, and bring the tissues!
Another amazing and beautifully written story by Elle… can’t wait for where she takes us next….
