Illusion by Ashley Beale

What if everything you thought you knew was just an illusion?

Everything in Zoey's life was destroyed the day her fiance never made it home from the war. Now being a year later, and still dealing with the horrible tragedy, she makes a move to New York City for her job, hoping to finally start healing.

The last thing Zoey ever expects to find is someone she can feel so comfortable and happy with. Everything about Harvey draws her attention, and she can finally feel herself heal. There are times things seem too perfect, but she tries not to question it much as she holds onto the passion she has for him.

When everything unravels and Zoey is forced to face a truth she can't seem to grasp, she has to make a choice to finally move on, or stay lost in a world of illusion.

Sometimes life is simple, sometimes love is unexpected. Sometimes we're exactly where we need to be, when we need to be there.
Then sometimes everything we thought we knew is just an illusion.

This [New Adult] Contemporary Romance novel contains mature themes, graphic sex and language, and is recommended for readers 18+ in age. Please be advised, this story also deals with PTSD, depression, infertility, attempted suicide, and other very mature situations, and is not recommended for all readers.
Heart-wrenching from the very beginning.  There were moments of joy, moments of madness, and moments of tragedy.  The emotional roller coaster ride I went on while reading Illusion was incredible.  I laughed, I cried, I was incredibly sad, and fearful for this poor woman who was made a victim of her own mind.  As the story took her on a dark and dangerous path, I was taken along with her.  Even when Zoey starts to embrace life again and learns to be happy, I was still choked up.  An emotional read, for sure!
