Book Summary -
It wasn’t his fault she lay broken and battered. He wasn’t responsible for the injuries covering her bruised body.
Her heart, however, told a different story. She endured the pain of its jagged edges as it shattered against her chest, ripping through the hope she once held. Her spirit was broken, and only one man was to blame for that.
Cassandra Clarke had known better than to trust her all to a man like Logan West. She’d thought he was different—a better man than he’d portrayed to others. A man worth risking it all for.
But she was wrong, and would never make that mistake again.
What happens when you question everything you longed to believe—deny all emotions you still hold for a man unworthy of them?
Faced with Logan’s persistence, Cassandra must find the strength to keep her guard up or risk falling again for the one man her body feels…is irreplaceable.
This book is intended for mature audiences.
Review—Irreplaceable by Angela Graham
“As hard as I tried to give you space and keep myself from stepping foot in this damn hospital, I can’t do it any longer. I’m going mad not being near you, not knowing that you’re really okay. That you’re safe.”…”Get the hell out, Logan! You’ve won, all right!?” He stood there, staring at me. “You proved I was just like every other girl you meet, ready to hand herself over for you to devour. Now LEAVE. ME. ALONE!”
After the accident, Cassie is laid up in the hospital, more than just her body broken. Logan West has broken a part of her that no doctor can fix…her heart. Determined to make it up to her and earn her forgiveness, Logan uses his money, his power, his straight-up stubbornness to stay in Cassie’s life and mind. What he doesn’t realize is that he is continuing to shatter what is left of her fragile heart.
“Look, I’m not saying give him a chance romantically, Cassandra. Just maybe…I don’t know, try being nice, or at least civil. What happened to my sweet best friend who never had a mean bone in her body?” With my eyes trained on the television, I answered, “He broke her.”
Struggling with the war between her mind and her heart, Cassie has no choice but to let him back in…her words cut, trying to push him away; her body and soul yearn for his closeness. Logan wants all of her though, he can’t be with her if she isn’t willing to be his completely. Trouble with that is, all Cassie is offering to the man who has stolen and stomped on her heart is friendship, and even that is a struggle. Luckily, Cassie has some pretty amazing friends and talking it out with an objective third party seems great…except, they all see what she refuses to: Logan West in love with her, and she him.
“Don’t keep pushing me away. You’re not like her; you’re not like any of them. I feel this. I do. You’re a part of me that I can’t escape. I don’t ever want to. I’ll tell you whatever you need to hear, do whatever I have to. But you have to stop pushing me away”…With a scrunched face, I grimaced at the throb in my chest as I threw my legs off the side of the bed; it wasn’t from my bruised ribs, but my angry heart. I didn’t want to miss him. I didn’t want to feel any of these complex and infuriating emotions tormenting me.”
Whew! What a ride; the emotions evoked in this book had me reeling. Cassie carries a huge, bitter chip on her shoulder towards Logan and even though she truly loves him, she fights it and him every.step.of.the.way. I am exhausted! Logan is one persistent man, he is very determined and clever enough to read between the lines. I love that despite the very nice cliffhanger at the end of this book, there were plenty of questions answered. Now, what to do about Natasha…
