First comes love.

Then comes marriage.

Then comes the… really nasty divorce.

Kate Carter thought she married her soul mate. She thought she had her happily ever after. But seven years into Kate’s marriage, she realizes that her husband Nick is not what she wanted. He’s selfish, he’s oblivious and he doesn’t love her anymore.

Maybe she doesn’t love him anymore either.

Divorce is the only option if either of them wants to find happiness.

Kate and Nick thought they knew what they wanted, but neither is prepared for the heartache that separating will bring them. The journey they embark on is not the freedom they wished for, but a painful look at the people they’ve become.

At the end of it, Kate has to decide if this is really the life she wants or if maybe there’s a way to salvage her broken heart.

Every Wrong Reason is a very hard book for me to review; it took me a number of days to read it. I often struggled with it but NOT because of the writing, this book was well written, and layered with so many deep emotions.

Why you ask, did this book take me so long to get through? Well because it was so powerful.

Someone once said to me “do you want to be right or do you want to be happy”, and that line often played in my head as I read Kate and Nick’s story. You see when the reader meets these two, they are separating and filing for divorce. I know it doesn’t sound like a love story but it is on so many levels. Nick and Kate were so real to me. The author did a fabulous job crafting truly flawed characters.

Falling in love is the easy part, staying in love is the hard part. It takes work and compromise and the desire to see the other person and their perspective. Kate and Nick lost that… and they almost lost each other in the process.

It is also often said you don’t know what you have until its gone. In Every Wrong Reason, this theme also resonates and I will say I adored Nick for trying so hard to get back what he almost losses, the love of his life, his soulmate.

I really don’t want to tell the reader how this works out but I will say this one will make anyone in a relationship truly think.

The end of the book did have me with a smile from ear to ear and I was so glad I stuck with it and completed this powerful story.


About Rachel Higginson

I was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.
