Ghost in his Eyes by Carrie Aarons

Title: Ghost in His Eyes
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 23, 2017

He was as magnetic as a deadly hurricane to the shore.
Carson Cole was my first love. The boy I'd shared my whole self with.
He was the man who'd taken the other part of my soul and drowned it in the sea we'd grown up in.
And now he's back. Ten years later, and the demons of our past are still haunting every breath trapped between us.
She was as wild as the horses who owned the beach highways we drove down.
Blake Sayer was the beautiful daredevil who had me wrapped around her finger from the time we were seven.
Until a horrible accident stole every piece of joy from her life.
Ten years later, she's a shell of the girl she once was, and it's all my fault. The whispers of our history shackle her to the island I left behind.
Just like lost years and unspoken words, love had slipped from our fingers like grains of sand. We’d barely made it out alive last time, was it even possible to reconstruct the shattered pieces of us?
Author of romance novels such as Red Card and On Thin Ice, Carrie Aarons writes sexy, swoony and sarcastic characters who won't get out of her head until she puts them down on a page.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book, and can’t imagine a better or more maddening profession.
When she isn't in a writing coma, Carrie is chasing her Great Dane/Lab puppy through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch the latest Netflix craze.
A truly amazing whirlwind contemporary romance! There were several points in this book where I needed a few tissues-this is an extremely raw and emotional book-with out of this world writing.

Blake and Carson are soulmates. They grew up together, and at fifteen their romance began. Never mind the fact that they were young-they were in love. Their love was a beautiful high school romance-until tradegy struck. After driving drunk, Blake and Carson lose the third member of their tripod; Blakes twin brother. Blake is overwrought with depression and banishes Carson away from his hometown. After ten years and more heartbreaking losses from Blake-the two are reunited. After taking through their problems getting to know each other and finding new ways to love each other-the two are stronger than ever. They help each other work through the loss of Joel-while their steamy romance takes them on completely new adventures.

Although I loved this book and applaud the very talented writing by Ms. Aaron's, I believe there could have been a little more push and pull between the two characters. It seems like after they get together-things are completely fine-I was waiting, and wishing for the other shoe to drop so we could have an even bigger reunion with more tears and more happiness. It seems that after they get together and go through normal life there is a bit of a plateau of the story. All in all however, it was amazingly done and very deserving of 4 stars. -Victoria
