Down We’ll Come Baby by Carrie Aarons
Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU
There is no way we can still love and cherish one and other.
When I married Theo Walsh, the rough, bearded townie who worked construction on my family’s summer house, I’d found my happily ever after.
That was before the fighting.
Before the jealousy.
Before the infertility.
We’ll be divorced long before death does us part.
But to secure my place in the family dynasty, there is just one more hoop I have to jump through. And I need him to do it.
Faking the marriage we once thrived in will gut me.
Especially with the secret I’m carrying.
I would have sacrificed for her until the end of time.
I’d given it all up to marry her. That’s how much I loved Imogen Weston, the daughter to one of the world’s richest families.
From the day we met, I’d done nothing but try to live up to the man she expected to be with. And now, I was done.
Sure, I’d complete this one final ask of hers, even if it destroyed me.
But I’ve made her promise the one thing that might save me. She swore that after she got everything she ever wanted, she wouldn’t look back.
I made my wife vow to leave me forever.
Down We’ll Come, Baby is Carrie Aaron’s next emotional, sexy, and fun standalone. I actually didn’t even read the synopsis so I went in totally blind. I did however know there was a ruggedly handsome man involved. I mean, damn. This cover is delicious and so is Theo Walsh.
After four years of marriage, Imogen walks out the door while her husband, Theo was still asleep in their bed. She still loved him and always would but she couldn’t do it anymore. The money. The job issues. The infertility. It was all too much over the last two years. It wasn’t that they didn’t have money. It was that they had too much. Her trust fund was not without expectations. Ones she was used to, growing up wealthy she knew the game. As for Theo, he grew up on the other side of it. All he cared about was her. And if that meant he had to work at a job he hated, he would. If it meant going to ridiculous parties, he would put on his tux. But, what he never expected was to give up on them and for him to make her promise to never look back. That is exactly what he had to do when she asked him for one last favor.
The favor was to pretend to still be in love. The still being in love was easy. Love was still there. It was the rest of it. The reasoning behind it. Her family’s reputation. Her rightful place in the family dynasty. He felt second best when it came to them. He would do anything for her except give up. It wasn’t over yet. Four months. That’s it then it would be final. They would be done. He could go back to his home on Nantucket and be the man she fell in love with. Without her.
It was love at first sight for Theo and Imogen. It was a whirlwind of love, lust, and marriage. Her family was against them from the very beginning. Theo didn’t have the money, power, and family name. He had a cottage, a construction job, and was an orphan. Imogen didn’t care about why he didn’t have, she only cared about what he did have. Her heart. Her body. And her soul. She thought what they had was enough. But the last two years were full of heartache, loss, and the same fights over and over again. She hated seeing him unhappy. She felt she had to walk away. And so she did. But now, she had to live with him after she left him. It was going to be torture but will it be worth it?
These two have some obstacles to jump. Big ones. I felt their love throughout the book. I also felt their pain. Like I said, I didn’t read the synopsis so it was a shock to me. A divorce? In the beginning of a romance book? I have to see how this plays out and Carrie did a fabulous job. I will tell you not to give up. The beginning is rough. I wanted to smack Imogen more than once. I had some words for her. I was not a fan. Don’t give up!! I didn’t and I loved it. I swooned hard for Theo. He is so in love with his wife.
Overall…it’s a journey full of loss, love, family, and forgiveness. It’s a story I was not expecting. I should have known it was going to have a twist since Carrie’s books are always unique. It’s one of the reasons why I love them.
P.S. and what they say is true. Money does not buy happiness.
I’ll grin and bear it, just like I always have, but don’t start lying to me. Don’t start being a Weston until you completely walk away from being a Walsh.
I’m so emotionally pained that I can feel the sorrow slosh through my veins as if it’s replacing my blood. I feel like if she touches me, I’ll shatter into a thousand pieces, I’m so fragile.
“Oh, fuck all of that. I hate when you go all Weston on me.”
“Language!” I scold her.
“And fuck your language rules, too.
