The Life You Stole is a great conclusion to Evelyn and Ronin’s story. A page turner that provided all the answers I was looking for. With over 40 highlights and notes, my aim in this review is to avoid talking about what happened and focus on the feels! Wish me luck…

This is a book you’ll either love or hate. It’s a suspenseful page-turner that kept me guessing. My warning for readers is to note that the first book was sweet, this book however, will take you on a dark and twisted journey.  

Evelyn is worried about Ronin and tries her best to encourage him to slow down. At the same time, their friends are going through troubled times and they slowly start to drift apart. As with the previous book, family, work and friendships are at the essence of this story. 

I would fight for him. And he would fight for me. There would be truths. There would be lies. Never perfect—always forever.

Ronin is juggling the unimaginable. He is following his heart at the same time he knows it comes with a heavy price. It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. I couldn’t turn away, desperately hoping that a solution could be found. Ronin was just one of the threads within the plot but he was the one I became fixated on.

As the broader story unfolded my mind exploded with rage, fueled on by the transgressions and manipulation at play. I was torn while simultaneously compelled to keep reading. The adrenaline surge I experienced as the story built was my reason for giving this book 5 Stars.

It’s important that you read The Life that Mattered first. For some unknown reason (OK, probably just say it was read in 2020 and that will cover it) I didn’t post a full review after I had finished reading it. My guess is that there may have been a bigger reason and that was to talk about it would mean I needed to dodge a minefield of spoilers. What blew me away was that I didn’t need to think too hard and long before I could recall this book in detail. An unforgettable twisted tale, JEA. Well done!
