A definite page turner. A captivating story about sad mistakes and the undeniable urge for a second chance!

Lately, I’ve been picky about the books I read. Time is a constraint right now, so if I sit down and read, it has to be something gripping, interesting and engaging, otherwise, I drop the hat. This book, definitely surprised me.

I would ruin the story completely if I gave a brief summary. There is no way to avoid spoiling the story, even if I talk about the characters in general,

***FOUR STARS***

I'm just writing one review for both stories, From This Day Forward (Part 1) and Forsaking All Others (Part 2), mostly because I'm too lazy to write proper reviews for both stories.

I actually enjoyed both stories quite a bit.
The rest of this review has spoilers so don't read on unless you are okay with that......

Do you ever read a book where there isn't a single redeemable character in the entire freaking thing? Yes? No? I've read a couple, but they always seem to get exactly what they deserve in the end.

This book? I hope you aren't looking for an HEA because this isn't it. This is one of those books where I'm pretty sure everyone gets what they deserve. You can even be satisfied with this ending if you like that kind of ending. However, if you want to see this all wrapped up, you're gonna have to grab

From This Day Forward by Shannon Myers a five-star read that you will want to be taken forward with. I thought I had already read everything by this author so really don’t know how I missed this one, what I will say is buy both this book and the next one Forsaking all others together as you will not want to risk not being able to read the second book or have any delay to reading it. Together they are the From this day forward duet and together they make the best read I’ve read in a long while. ...more
Jazmyne- Ramblings of a Bookworm
Elizabeth is faced with a huge life challenge right at the beginning of the book – her marriage is over. With the help of her best friend Jess, her therapist, and some well portioned champagne, she begins to put the pieces of her life back together. That is, until … she doesn’t.
There’s so much about this story I cannot say without taking away some of the surprise of the plot. But let’s just say that once it seems that Elizabeth’s life is turning toward the better it all changes.

This book was exceptional! There was romance, friendship, betrayal, sexy and passionate love scenes, and it all left you on the edge of your seat till the end of the book! I hated characters with a passion, then I grew to love them over the course of the story. At times I wished I could be transplanted into the story!
This is an exceptional story and I can't wait to read more from Shannon Myers!

The description of this book leaves a lot to be imagined when starting this book, but what the author does is throw you for a huge loop when it comes to different twists that were added. I can’t even real review it with out saying what is what because it’s got a heck of a twist. I really enjoyed the twists that the author added because the main one was unique and added a layer to the story. I look forward to reading the second book I.

Donna ~ The Romance Cover
I saw this duet recommended in a group I am saying it was heartbreaking, a real tear-jerker and that was just what I was in the mood for. Well, no tears were shed from me. The story was all over the place, there were a lot of errors, the world and his wife were cheating (which is not a hard limit for me) but it all just got a bit ridiculous. There was no redemption for any of the characters and while the initial twist was really good, that was the highlight of the duet for me. It was a shame ...more

Holy Shit!

Damn Shannon, you blew this out of the park! I have no words! AMAZING! I'm following you girl! On to the next and I'm f****** excited! ok, so I read your "deleted scenes" after complaints on Beth, call me stupid, but it confused me, ugh!

Twists and turns

I am still a little discombobulated by this story. Ms Myers wove a tail that leaves you second guessing what you read and what has happened. I found myself sneaking off to read just on more page. What you think is real might not be. I can't wait to start book two.
Tonya (Rustic Book Reviews)
I want to make this as spoiler free as possible but with this story it is hard to keep to yourself. So, lets see what I can do.

In the first of the book we meet Elizabeth and she is talking about her current marriage to Landon. She is happy and life is going great. She has the best friend in the world, Jess, but somewhere something changes.

She goes out to a club, meets this one of a kind man, David. She is enjoying her self and drinking the night away. She is caught up with her attraction for

I really liked the way the author wove through the parts of the stories and connected the dots between the twists. You probably won't understand what I mean unless you read the book. David's character seemed a bit stiff for my liking. I actually preferred the way the story was right before the first twist - can someone write a book like this for me, please? On to the second part I go...

Shelves: cheating
Everyone cheated in this book. Everyone. I kind of hated this book but at the same time I was dying to find out what happens next, but what sucks is that this book was on KU, but the second is not. I am crossing my fingers that someday book 2 will be on KU, because otherwise I'm done here.
Jennifer
This book was confusing! The first section of the book outlines Elizabeth's failed marriage with Landon, who has recently left her to be with his best friend's wife. Yeah, he's a scumbag. Elizabeth finally gets out of her depressive funk to go out on a night on the town with her friend, Jess, and meets a nice guy named David. Before she can even give him her number, she falls and hits her head. When she wakes up in the hospital, her version of reality is much different than everyone else's. ...more

I was engrossed in this story. Confusing beginnings but the surprises and reveals slowly unfolded. I was routing for Landon, then David, then Landon. Good storyline. Looking forward to the conclusion in book 2.
Never read books from this author before, will definitely be on my go to list for future reading.

Gripping

Could not put it down and it ends in a cliff hanger. This is a grippingly powerful book that shows the real depths of marriage in many ways. Holy smokes David and Beth's story is amazing.

I’m giving this 4 stars because it was trippy and pretty riveting, like watching a train wreck. I had to keep turning pages to see how it was going to turn out. First of 2 books. I’m going to have to read the second to see how it all ends.

Whoa hang on tight y’all!

READ THE BOOK!!!! Hold onto your britches y’all because this book is going to take you on one heck of a ride. Oh you think you have it figured out? Wrong. Oh you think your heart is safe? Wrong. But it’s worth the ride. Just hang on tight because it’s gonna be a bumpy one! The only reason this one got 4 stars is because there was a little repetition and some parts were hard to follow but trust me, slow down, maybe reread a little and it’ll be worth it.

Twists and turns galore

It's been a while since I've found a book I could really get my teeth into and this was just what I was looking for.

Lots of twists and turns, highly recommended.
Marie  Brown (Marie's Tempting Reads)
Where do I begin...this book tore out my heart but at the same time blew me away with our Alpha male, David! OMG! Half the things that went down in this book I did NOT see coming but it sure as hell was AMAZING! I fell HARD for David and Beth! The book left me a complete mess, yet there were moments that had me absolutely panting and melting and there was even a touch of humor here and there.

Shannon Myers found herself a stalker (I mean fan!) for life now! I am absolutely, truly, sincerely

Wow, I was not expecting this book to turn out how it did. I must say after reading the first part and then going into the second part, I was confused. I will say this book has cheating in it. While I'm not a fan of cheating in real life, I don't mind it in books. But it also depends on the characters. Ok, this book had left me emotionally drained. I must say right now, I don't like Beth's so called best friend Jess. Bitch is all I'm gonna say. Not liking David either. Not sure how I feel about ...more

Apparently this is a series...

Yep... totally not impressed. Why can't authors warn you about this shit...

Short review. The book is broken into three parts, I didn't like part one and found it boring until David showed up. I enjoyed part 2 much more and felt the love and passion that David and Beth have for each other part 3 tainted what I liked about part 2. Despite not enjoying all of the book but parts of it I am interesting to see if any of the characters will be redeemed in the next book.




*Spoilers* I felt like making David a cheater too was an after thought to put both him and Beth on even

In junior high, she began writing fractured fairy tales from the villain's point of view and that was the moment she knew that she was going to use her powers for evil instead of good.
