BLURB OR NOTANYHOO HERO WAS Aor notAnyhoo Hero was a in Chicago and married to a woman that he had been in love with Even though she was high maintenance and had depression issues throughout their marriage he was still widely in love with her ntil he came home one day and found her having sex with his partner friend Hurt he asked her for a divorce and she ended p committing suicideTwo years later Hero feeling guilty haunted by his wife who talks to him in his sleep every night leaves Chicago to start fresh in a new town where he meets a red headed bartender Jenny who he is immediately smitten with but all he wants is to have some fun while he is in town Jenny made a promise to her dead twin sister to travel all over the world She befriends Dylan tries her hardest to not fall for him because she knows he is still grieving for his wife because she will be leaving soonWhile the MC s were likable the fact that Hero constantly talked to his dead wife we were given a window into their "Marriage Of How Much He "of how much he worshiped her body was a big turn off for me because I felt that heroine settled for second best This is the theme for these type of reads where Hero was in love with his dead wife and still grieving It makes this reader at least feel that the main story is between the ex Hero with heroine always being the one he settles for because he is lonely vs in loveI will say that in this story the Hero states It wasn t that I was
