{Review} You Loved Me At My Weakest (You Love Me #2)

Cover

You loved me at my weakest (You loved me 2) by Evie Harper

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This was an intense and gripping novel. You loved me at my weakest pulled some really powerful emotions from me and it really makes you think about things that you wouldn’t normally think about. Every day people survive the bad that happens, but no body really stops to think just how they got their. You loved me at my weakest shows that struggle and how it effects not just the people but everyone around with as well.

We actually get to meet Emily is the first book in the series, You Loved Me At My Darkest. Here she comes across as a bit cold and settled that this is it for her. That’s also the mood for the start of this book. However she slowly starts to break out of her shell with the help of family, friends and the love of her life, Kanye; who can all see straight through her lies and fake persona.

I am a rose. I have scars from my life, but I am strong. I stand tall and I grasp life every day and live. I survived. I’m a survivor and I’m proud of myself

Now Kanye, man he is a how different ball game. He never believed that he wouldn’t see his ‘Emmy’ again. What she puts him through to try to ‘save’ him from herself is just heartbreaking. He is trying to be strong for both of them. yet his heart keeps breaking. I loved Kanye, he really was such a strong man and wouldn’t take no for as answer. He went after everything that he wanted.

“Emmy, I fell in love with you before I even knew what love was. And I will continue to love you until I’m old and senile and I forget what love is”

This story has so much depth to it. I really couldn’t put it down towards the end.

It was good to see Lily and Jake again and now that they are still struggling to overcome what has happened to them. Yet are making happy memories too.

Can’t wait for the next book in the series now.

Synopsis

Emily

Broken, used and worthless.
They are the words that have been branded into my mind for the past five years.
Now freed, but they stole my smile and left me with only tears.
My dreams of the future died right before my eyes.
I’m fighting to find my way back, but I’m too weak.

Kanye

I won’t let her walk this road alone.
I’ll hold on for her. The dark can’t last forever.
Her heart beat keeps time for the rest of my life.
Our fate will not be denied or erased.
It will be beautiful.
“How great your love is for me.” I whisper.
“Forever Emmy”

Excerpt

Found, saved, released… freed.

Should I have a smile on my face? I should be happy, right? I’m going home. I’m going to see my family and I’m going to be safe from now on. No more hands touching me. No more bruises to watch fade away from my skin.

But I’m broken, ruined, and worthless. What can I offer them? I’m tainted. Darkness has touched me more times than I can wrap my mind around.

This suburban family doesn’t know what true evil is. I’ve laid beside the devil countless times and he’s turned me black. Inside and out.

The world around me grows louder and I come out of my thoughts, staring at the ground. I turn my head to look for Kanye, who is standing behind me. We just stepped off the plane that brought me home. He’s watching me, again. Each time I glimpse a look at him, my breath catches. He hasn’t changed at all in the last five years. Still the most handsome man I’ve ever laid eyes on. His wild, short blond hair and deep blue eyes that tell me he’s so much more than just a pretty face; his thoughts are always deep and meaningful. His body is still fit and muscular. My head still only comes up to his eye level.

Shouts distract me from my examination. I look around and find my parents sprinting toward me. Across the airstrip not listening to any of the men screaming behind them to stop. My mother drops her handbag, items spilling from it; however, she doesn’t stop to pick it up.

Time slows for just a moment as I watch my parents. My mother’s short brown hair whips in the air. Her eyes wide with tears falling. I can see one of the teardrops hit her red shirt, and there it sits, a lone wet tear, a teardrop for me.

My father’s cheeks are puffing in and out heavily. His arms pumping hard, I watch as each vein pops up as he pulls and pushes his arms backwards and forwards.

I tilt my head to the side. They’re running toward me, to embrace me. To comfort me? How long will it take them to realize their Emily is gone. How long until they realize I’m repulsive. And I will lose them, all over again.

I’m scared of their touch. Light, loving, forgiving.

Oomph! They’ve crashed into me and time sets back to present and harsh reality.

My dad picks me up, circles his arms around my body, and cries into my neck. My mother hugs me from behind. I feel her tears soaking through my shirt.

I’m scared. My chest feels heavy. My heart begins to swell. It expands and the ice around my heart starts cracking, breaking off in tiny pieces.

My mother’s sobs turn into screams at my back and larger pieces of ice break off. I’m left with just a swollen heart, who just let everything in. Pain, suffering, torment, relief, love. I can feel it all and it’s too much. But I can’t turn it off.

My chest starts heaving, but my mouth refuses to open and let out the cries that are now clawing at my lips to let them have a voice. A voice… they’ve never had a voice. Someone who cared what they cried, someone who would fix the hurt they were feeling.

It’s happening. My body melts into my father’s. My eyes sting and blur. Slowly, I open my mouth and there they are. The cries. They’ve gone ignored and unwanted for so long. They are mine. My cries of pain, torment and my relief.

My father jolts at the agonizing sound that’s ripped from my throat. My mother stands back and repeats my name on a whisper.

Hands wrap around me from behind and I know whose they are. The one person who at this moment is going to send me over the edge. Kanye.

I fall into him, his warmth, and strong arms. We collapse to the ground and he holds me to him. My head to his neck and his hand under my knees.

Kanye repeats on a whisper while rocking us on the ground, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.”

I continue to let my precious cries go, while the man I love and the man I cried out for so often apologizes for the pain he didn’t inflict. Pain I can see he has inflicted on himself.

I’m letting my pain go and sharing it with the world. Now everyone around me knows just how much agony I’m in. And they’re listening; they will try to help. They can’t. But at least someone cares. That’s all I ever wanted.
