Do you want to hear a story?
It’s about a girl who had everything. She was so happy and loved her life. She had an amazing family and a boy who loved her with his whole heart. Then, one day, the girl became lost and wasn’t sure what to do. She was scared to leave the one place that held her heart. She asked herself how she could move on and be okay. She looked for signs, but nothing came to her.
Were the signs coming?
Would she know what direction to take?
These were the questions she asked herself. Then, one night, she found herself in her bathroom, staring at a pill bottle. She stared for so long, wondering what would happen if she took the pills.
* * * * *
Putting the bottle to my face, I wonder how fast it would be. My grip around the pill bottle gets stronger. Sobs escape my lungs and slip through my lips. The shattering pain that blisters through pushes me forward. I look at the reflection in the mirror and anger spews from me. Lifting my right arm, I punch the mirror several times, feeling the shards of glass slicing my hand. The pain sears through, but I don’t feel it. The pain of my broken heart is stronger.
I grab a piece of the shattered glass and hold it tightly in my hand. I want the pain to go away. I want to feel alive again. I want to breathe, and I want to let go. Since losing him, I’ve been hiding. No one can pull me out of this. I don’t want anyone to. Honestly, I like being alone to think about how I feel without him. When I’m alone, I don’t have to pretend to smile to please whoever is around me. Believe me, no one likes to be around suicidal and depressed people. We’re the downers, and there’s only so much someone can take before they disregard the person.
I’m being disregarded.
Pushing down the top of the bottle, I toss the cap aside and look at the white pills. This is the only way I can be with Brody again.
He’s my rock.

~ 5 Emotional Stars ~
So one thing I have come to expect with an S. Moose book, is the emotional roller coaster she takes her readers on. Every book I have read by her has put me through the wringer….she doesn’t take it easy on my heart, that’s for sure. She also doesn’t make it easy for the characters in her stories. To me she takes her characters and readers on a journey to finding their HEA. And with every journey there are ups and downs!!!!
Vision of Hope is book 3 in her Infinity Series. This book can be read as a standalone, being that it is about a new couple and has a separate storyline than the first two books. S. also does a fantastic job filling in any missing holes for the reader if they choose not to read the first two books. My personal recommendation would be to read this series in order, it will help you know all the characters and how they are all linked together. This book is about Jensen and his journey to finding his forever love. I don’t want to give to much away, because the best part of S. Moose’s books is experiencing everything for yourself.
Now I was a little nervous going into this book, because after reading the blurb, I knew there was going to be some kind of love triangle and some amount of cheating. I will tell you that both of these things do occur, so if they are hard limits for you, you probably don’t want to pick this one up. Now normally cheating is a hard limit for me, but being that I LOVE all of S. Moose’s books, I knew I had to read this one too. I am glad that I did because the cheating wasn’t that bad. What I find I don’t like about a book when cheating occurs, is that the author tends to dwell on it and spreads it throughout the whole book, well this one is different….the cheating only occurs once for a short period of time. I can’t say who does the cheating because that would give too much away. Just know it is tolerable. As for the love triangle…..I can’t explain my thoughts on this because it would spoil the ending of the book, but just know it’s not what or who you would think it’s between.
I have to say I love watching S.’s writing improve with each book she writes. This book to me is the best of the series and that’s saying something because I LOVED book 2 (Vision of Destiny) This books’ flow and pace was spot on. I thought she captured the feeling and emotions of the characters really well.
I know I left this review fairly vague and open ended, but I truly believe this is a book you should go into blind and with an open mind. Just know that I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will continue to read anything S. Moose writes. If you are a fan of S.’s then I will say this book is a MUST READ….but I guess I would tell everyone that 🙂
