Letting Go by Molly McAdams
The New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author returns with a sizzling novel of love, loss, guilt, and forgiveness.
Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen and believed they’d be together forever. But three days before their wedding, the twenty-year-old groom-to-be suddenly died from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride’s world. If it hadn’t been for their best friend, Jagger, Grey never would have made it through those last two years to graduation. He’s the only one who understands her pain, the only one who knows what it’s like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered. Jagger swears he’ll always be there for her, but no one has ever been able to hold on to him. He’s not the kind of guy to settle down.
It’s true that no one has ever been able to keep Jagger—because he’s only ever belonged to Grey. While everyone else worries over Grey’s fragility, he’s the only one who sees her strength. Yet as much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. Still they can’t deny the heat that is growing between them—a passion that soon becomes too hot to handle. But admitting their feelings for each other means they’ve got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?

Letting Go was another tear jerker from Molly McAdams!! From chapter one she had me sobbing and my heart was torn into pieces! I didn’t know if I could recover and continue on..but I did and boy did this book astound me!
Grey wanted to marry the love of her life and was so excited to be doing that exact thing in three days. Then disaster strikes and Grey feels like she will never be the same. Jagger is the only one that understands and doesn’t try to baby her. Jagger and Ben have been best friends since grade school, so when Ben suddenly dies he is just as devastated as Grey is but he has also been harboring feelings that he has never told anyone. When Grey learns about those feelings, she is confused and runs away, not sure how she can move on without Ben, even if she does “maybe” have the same feelings. When she decides to make a go of the relationship, someone else things its a bad idea and dredges up old hurtful memories for both of them. Can they break through their haunting past or is there more to it then even they know?
MOLLY!!!! AHHH!! This woman knows how to make you sob uncontrollably and feel every emotion that the character in the book are feeling. Grey and Jagger are sooo made for each other but life has just never been fair. This is a MUST MUST READ!!! Such a great story!! Another win for Molly!!
About the Author:
Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she’s not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm…or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.
