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.


  • A renewed chance at love

    Very moving story that helps us realize that although tragic things might happen in our lives we need to have the courage to move forward so as not to miss out on experiencing a new sense of happiness and love in our life that could be there right before our eyes.

    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.
