Imagine being in love with the same girl since you were ten years old, only to have her fall for your twin instead. This story is rocky.
It will rip you apart and possibly put you back together again.
I know this because it’s my story.
The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we’d find each other again.  I won’t sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into her life.
Sometimes love isn’t enough.
Sometimes it takes a little fate.

I can’t help but wonder about my own broken heart. Why am I holding onto some hope that I’ll have her in my arms again? It makes no sense, and that’s the reason I won’t share my feelings about it with anyone. They’ll just laugh at me for loving her so much. When I close my eyes we’re together. She’s running through a field of tall grasses, while beams of sun are shining down, highlighting her brown wavy hair. The smile on her face makes me beam, and I stand there, arms open, waiting to catch her when she comes into my reach. I want to lay there in that field with her until the sun sets, and even after. It’s no longer about making love. In that moment I know she’s mine, and nothing can tear us apart again. 
I just wish I could talk to her. I want to tell her that I miss her. I need to know she’s okay.
I need to know she’s still alive.

~ 5 “I LOVE Brooks” Stars ~

I have to say I was lucky enough to be able to Beta read Love Survives for Jennifer Foor. To this day Love’s Suicide is my All Time Favorite books of Jenn Foor’s, so when I heard she was writing another version (Brooks’s POV) I was stoked. Love Survives was just as fabulous as Love’s Suicide. This book just reiterated why I LOVE Brooks Valentine so much. This was not an easy book to read for your emotions. There were some really hard spots to read, that really broke my heart, but I think it is a side of the story we needed to have.

While reading the first book I always wanted to know how Brooks was feeling and thinking and now we have those answers. Love Survives isn’t a complete retelling of the first book, because it is from Brooks’s POV so there is a time when we don’t see anything about Katy. If you have read the first book you will understand what I am saying. I would recommend that you read Love’s Suicide first because you need to know Katy’s side of the story first before you dive into Brooks’s. Things will just make more sense to you if you read book 1 first.

This book is just as long as the first one, but just like in Love’s Suicide, Jenn is able to suck you in and hold onto your attention throughout the whole book. You will want to keep turning the pages until you get to the end. AS usual this is another book I didn’t want to see come to an end. Even though I knew what happens, this book still felt fresh and new to me. I am not going to rehash all the details of the storyline, because if you are aware of what happens in the first book, then you know what this story is about.

What I did really enjoy was seeing what Brooks went through while he was a ranger in the Army. Jenn put such detail into that part of the story, that she made me feel like I was there with him. What he experienced in the Army was horrific, and I couldn’t imagine having to see everything he did. It truly made me appreciate the sacrifice that the men and women of the armed forces take on to protect our country. During this time of the story we were introduced to some new characters, who were friends of Brooks in the Army. These friends and love he had for Katy is truly what helps him keep going on.

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone, but especially if you are a fan of Jenn Foor’s. You truly don’t want to miss these two fabulous work of literary art!!!




Get the beginning of the story with Love Survives
My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too naïve to know what that even meant. We didn’t understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I’d made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.
Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I’d ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I’d ever known.
That’s where my story should have ended.
Two years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.
The only question was…
Would I give it to him
I’m Katy Michaels and this is my story.
