Review: A Beautiful Catastrophe by Katheryn Kiden

For two years Shay Daniels has been stuck in the past—stuck in a pain so deeply overwhelming that she constantly feels as if she's drowning. A chance meeting gives her her first breath of fresh air, but it could be her final downfall.

He's stuck wondering what could have been—letting the pain of everything he's lost simmer within his broken heart. She's the first thing that has made him feel like himself again in years. He might be able to love her—he wants to—if he could only manage to live in the present.

Devastating pasts.

Uncertain futures.

Life is supposed to move forward, but what if all it does is revolve in a heartbreaking circle?

What if every step you take toward making yourself whole again only leads you closer to another beautiful catastrophe?

Where the heck do I begin?  I heard this book was emotional.  I heard this book was going to rip my heart out & I heard that this book will stay with me for a really long time.  I then read this book and OMG they weren't kidding!  It hurt my heart so bad but it also made me smile and laugh too.

Shay was broken.  She's been broken for a while and it made my heart ache for her.  I wanted to give her a hug and tell her it's ok to keep going.  I wanted her to be happy.  Then in comes Deacon, who has his own pain and secrets, but chooses to hide them.  He feels this pull towards Shay, but doesn't want to feel it.  Doesn't think he should be feeling it.  However, Shay doesn't let him off easy.  There's laughter and fun times that neither would let themselves have before they met each other.  There's tears and sadness.  There's arguments and stubbornness.

A Beautiful Catastrophe brought me to tears.  It's only the 2nd book that has ever made me cry to the point I couldn't stop them from falling.  It was a beautiful, but heart breaking story and so very well written.  The details were pictured and the emotions were felt.  The feels!  Oh my, did I have all the feels and I loved every single one.  This book had many parts from the author's past and if you continue to read the note at the end of the story, you will understand everything.  This novel definitely lives up to it's name.  "A Beautiful Catastrophe" explains it to a T.

To Author Katheryn Kiden...Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read this beautiful novel.  You are amazing and wonderful and talented and I just want to give you a big hug for taking a risk and putting yourself out there.  <3 p="">
