From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, continues a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

Harmony Wynham has been many things in her life: daughter, friend, student, lover, wife…and now, widow. Getting past those labels and finding who she could be without them was the hardest thing she’s ever done.
Then she became friends with Brendon. 
Every time she looks at him, she sees a past, she sees a present, and she’s afraid if she looks too hard, she’ll see a future.

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

    Oh my goodness I absolutely loved this book. This is the 2nd one in the series. I can not wait for more. Definitely read the first you will not be disappointed.
  • Wonderful Book!

    By mrsliedy
    Shouldn’t Have You is the second installment of the Fractured Connections series. It is an unbelievable addition to the series. I found myself being able to relate to both characters. Ryan does an excellent job giving insight into the characters’ feelings. I have loved every book that CAR has written but this one is my favorite by far. If this is just the second installment, I cannot wait for the other additions.
  • Another one outta the park

    By Cyanpooh
    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book Hope you have your tissues handy for this one folks because you will need them! Next up in our Fractured Connections group is Harmony and Brendon. Harmony, at such a young age, has now dealt with two huge losses; the sudden death of her husband and now the death of one of her best friends. Brendon and Harmony were friends in school, her husband was his business partner, and they are learning to be friends again. Brendon is someone who did not have a great home life until Jack and Rose and even though he had a better life after those early years did a number on him. Harmony has started dating again, much to her dismay, and is only happy with her dates when she talks to Brendon afterwards. Brendon has secret feelings for Harmony but feels that he is not good enough for her for several reasons of which I will not go into because you gotta read the book!!! LOL!!! Both characters are very well written and makes you have tons of feelings for them. I love the way they develop from friends to more than friends, its something for her that is just like “there you are, where have you been”. For him it was like “ I love her but she can do so much better,” yes he had feeling for her but they didn’t come about until after the death of her husband There is sooooo much to say about this book but I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Ryan has once again wrote a beautiful story grounded in real life. If you know anything about Carrie Ann Ryan you know this one hit close to home, but as she says in the Author’s note this is not her story this is Harmony’s and I think Harmony, Brendon and Moyer justice.

  • 10 Amazing Stars!!!

    By Crystal's Book World
    Shouldn't Have You broke me and had me crying tears that seemed endless. The words Carrie gives us melts into our soul and you will literally feel the pain and heartache the characters endure. So when I met Harmony and Brendon, I truly thought they were only meant to stay as friends. As the story progressed, I saw more and a friendship that took on more. Brendon was a protector first, but demons from his past will be his uphill battle. Harmony was my hero. I loved her endurance for life and kicking it back in the when she needed to. This story hits close to home and for some, it a story they have lived before. Shouldn't Have You is waking up from mourning. It is not forgetting the past and pain, its the acceptance and the will to live on. Carrie has brought so much emotion and life to the story, you will be transported into their world. A world that you want to persevere with the rest of the characters. If you have experience loss, whether in death or life in general, you have to have this book om your shelf! MUST READ!!!

  • A Beautiful Story

    By arhodes202
    This is book #2 in the "Fractured Connections" series. It's a friends-to-lovers book with such a beautiful story. It touched my heart in the best ways, with all the feels. Grief, Love, acceptance, healing, hope, friendship. You can feel the relationship building between Harmony and Brendon. Harmony is struggling with moving on after the death of her husband Moyer, who also happened to be Brendon's best friend. Brendon is struggling with not being able to save Moyer as well as his traumatic childhood that still gives him nightmares. Brendon and Harmony have been friends far longer then either have know Moyer, yet they never had feeling other then friendship before. They are enjoying the friendship they share now and are afraid of the feelings that they are having for each other. Your heart will hurt for these two as they struggle to move past their losses and past horrors. Carrie Ann kept me riveted from sentence one. You will laugh. You will definitely cry, so keep a box of tissues handy. It was such an amazing emotional read. I loved watching these two get their HEA. I also enjoyed that we get to see characters from the previous book as well as the ones for future books. The bond between the Connolly brother's and Harmony's "sisters" is such a strong one that you feel can feel the bond between them all. This is for sure a must read.
  • So Good!

    This story was emotional and healing at the same time. Brendon and Harmony had been through so much together and even more individually. Watching them figure it out and also getting pushed by the people who love them. The Connolly brothers are fun to watch interact and then with the addition of Dillon, he at times is full of gems that the guys are in awe of. This story was well put together and thoughtful. Loved it!!!
