I was provided an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have been looking for the type of read that is engaging, well-written, steamy, and emotional. I found all of this in The Darkest Part.
Where to begin with this heart-wrenching read? I loved every minute I spent reading it. It reminded me of why I spend so much of my time reading. What I love most about reading is the journey. I love to get absorbed into the stories and lives of these characters. To get wrapped up in the story so much that you forget time. Not many authors achieve this, but Trisha Wolfe did. I am forever a reader of hers.
This beautiful, gut-wrenching story of second chance love, loss, and forgiveness will stay with me for a very long time.  Sam has an almost perfect life. She is engaged to her best friend and high school sweetheart, Tyler. One night, everything is ripped from her. Tyler dies which makes her world come crashing down.  Soon after, Sam believes she can see Tyler. She believes he won’t be free until she scatters his ashes on a road trip that they planned for their honeymoon. Tyler’s older brother steals the ashes and they both embark on a road trip that will change everything they know and believe in.
Although the synopsis explains that Tyler’s death will happen, it didn’t prepare me any less. Tyler and Sam were a very loving couple. Not many have that deep connection they did. While Tyler lived for a small amount of time, I still connected to his character and was devastated when the death happens.
Enter Holden, and you feel a change in the book.  He’s like this incoming storm that Sam never expected, but needed more now than ever.  Little does he know how much the road trip will change him as it will Sam. Any story about loss is heartbreaking, but this was beyond that. All the characters were hurt. Every single one was suffering in silence. It’s later when we find out their secrets. Love heals. This book attests to that.
I am adding this to one of my favorite books ever shelf. I laughed, I cried, I swooned. I haven’t read such a touching book in a very long time. Every and any NA fan needs to read this book. Not many NA books will be able to top this one.
