Shouldn't Have You by Carrie Ann Ryan

Title: Shouldn't Have You
Series: Fractured Connections #2
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 21, 2019


I've been many things in my life: daughter, friend, student, lover, wife…and now, widow. Getting past those labels and finding who I could be without them was the hardest thing I've ever done.
Then I became friends with Brendon Connolly.
Every time I look at him, I see a past, I see a present, and I’m afraid if I look too hard, I’ll see a future.


I've known Harmony Wynham since before she got married. Before she lost everything. I didn’t know that one day she wouldn’t be just my friend but the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
Only I don't think that can happen.
Not when every time she looks at me, she sees what she lost, and I can only see what I can't overcome.
I love her, even though I shouldn't. Somehow, we need to find a balance.
Because if we don't, walking away will be the hardest thing I've ever done—even if it's the only thing I should do.

My Review
5 Stars
Shouldn't Have You by Carrie Ann Ryan is book Two in the Fractured Connections Series.  This is the story of Harmony Wynham and Brendon Connolly.  I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book.
Harmony and Brendon were friends before Harmony married Moyer.  Three actually become very close and Brendon considered Moyer a great friend also.  But then Moyer was killed in a tragic accident that Brendon feels some guilt over.  Harmony has been trying to deal with her husband's death and having to start a new life without him.  Brendon and Harmony somewhat feel away from their close friendship but have started to get back what they had and more.  Now that Harmony is trying to move on into the dating world as Moyer would have wanted she is finding it a disaster.  Brendon was close to Harmony but after their short time apart starts to feel a stronger love for her then every before.
This was a really good friends to lovers romance both dealing with some drama from their past and how the death of Moyer affected them.
