ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Jeremy Bradford woke up from a four years coma with a harsh realization that the woman he loved now belong to someone else. No one knew what happened when he went missing. Even his family’s wealth and resources couldn’t help him then. Now he was determined to find out what happened and get back his old life.

Sylvie Solum never wavered in her dedication to find Jeremy. But after such heartbreak, she needed emotional and physical support especially that she was carrying his child. Silas Chambers was there to be her rock. But with Jeremy back in her life, it threatened to mar the once picture perfect family.

The mystery element in the blurb definitely caught my attention. Then I started seeing people saying it bring out all kinds of emotion, I just couldn’t resist it.

I don’t know how to wash away the smell of her, the feel of her in my hands. I don’t know that I would even if I could. Those memories are all I have left.

Considering Jeremy’s situation, it was very easy to feel sorry and fall for him. And despite losing four years of his life, he was rational, patient and understanding.

Sylvie was warring with her heart. She had to choose between her past and her present and what’s best for her future. I wish I know more about her though because she seemed a little one dimensional.

“Part of me knew that you’d destroy me one day. But I couldn’t stop it. I couldn’t fight it. And now I almost wish you’d put me out of my misery.”

Out of all the characters, I think Silas was the one with the most difficult position. Therefore I have a soft spot for him. I also believe his character had the most balance and well developed. I feel like I know everything there is about him.

“Having you like this is torture,” he rasps. “But losing you would be utter obliteration.”

I really like the mystery/suspense elements even though I did find it too easy to figure it out. Some of the characters were hard to love. However I do understand their motivations no matter how despicable their actions might be.

Everything Stolen is a story of people whose life thrown into disarray when the past came back to haunt. It’s a sexy, suspenseful and engaging read.
