Love You Through It by Fabiola Francisco





My fingers weave in my hair and tug hard. A loud yell escapes my lips, and my eyes land on the reason for the ruckus. An excruciating cry bubbles in my chest, slowly building as if adding to my pain. With another scream, the tornado within me explodes. It escapes angrily, as my body swooshes around my house, knocking things down as I come in contact with them. Glass shatters. Metal clacks against the tile. Cushions swoosh as they’re thrown through the air.

Uncontrollable and destructible fury burns within me until I melt into a pile of ashes on the cool tile. The water from my eyes extinguishes the burning heat as I sink further onto the floor. I curl into myself, fists hitting the hard surface.

I don’t know how long I stay like this for, but eventually I start to drift away, my mind numb and my heart slowing down. Before I completely fall asleep, I sit up. My head is pounding and my body is stiff from tension. I close my eyes for a few beats, and reassess the destruction around me when I reopen them.

I was okay a few days ago when Olivia came by. As okay as I could be in my situation. Today, I lost it. Something inside me triggered and I lost control. I tiptoe around the broken glass with my bare feet and grab the broken frame I launched across the living room.

I hug it to me, careless of shards of glass that could cut me. “I’m so sorry,” I whisper into the frame. “I’m such an asshole. Sorry.” I fight the urge to cry again. I pull the frame from my chest and stare at the picture of Josh and I. The glass scratched a bit of the gloss, but it’s still a beautiful picture of us. I shake off the excess glass, not even wincing when I get a small cut on my finger. The pain is welcomed.

After cleaning the mess, I sit cross-legged on the couch with a fresh glass of wine. Nothing will get rid of this headache, so I might as well fuel it with alcohol. Besides, I could use the disconnection alcohol offers. Another night of forgetting for a little while about the loss I’m grieving. Another night I sleep through most of it.

Wow! Fabiola Francisco blew me away with this beautiful, emotional book! Bri has just experienced a loss that just may destroy her. The love of her life is gone, and she is wondering how she will ever come out of this pain. Cole has been in love with Bri for a long time now. He always respected her love and marriage to her husband. Now, he just wants to help her learn how to live again. His feelings for her are a slippery slope. He wants to be there for her as a friend, but he is also battling his feelings for her. Can he help her feel whole again, and if so, where does that leave him in his relationship with her?

I didn’t read the first book in the series, and I didn’t have a hard time getting to know the characters, so this can be read as a standalone. It is an amazing and heartbreaking book, both filled with sadness and joy. My heart broke so much for Bri. I cannot imagine her pain, but I did want her to see that life had not left her behind. Josh would have wanted her to learn to be happy again. Francisco did such a phenomenal job of illustrating her complicated feelings for Cole.

Cole was a knight in shining armor. He never let her descend all the way down her well of grief. He was so unselfish. He put aside his own deep feelings for her to be her friend and support first. He never pushed her too far. I couldn’t help but fall for him.

I loved the pacing of this romance. It wasn’t rushed, and it shouldn’t have been. Bri and Josh’s romance should never have been downplayed or pushed aside. It was part of who Bri was. I did absolutely love watching her slowly fall in love with Cole.

I also loved that this wasn’t a book just about a new romance. It was a book about grief and how complicated it is. Francisco never spared her readers any of emotions Bri experienced, and it drew me to Bri and her story. I felt everything she did. I am so happy I discovered Fabiola Francisco and this series! I can’t wait to read more!!!!
