Dirt (Evergreen #1) by Cassia Leo

Dirt (Evergreen Series Book 1) by [Leo, Cassia]

Jack and I had everything. Then, in one brutal instant, the universe tilted on its side, discarding us into black nothingness.

Now, I have a cocky jerk for a husband.

The only way we communicate anymore is in the bedroom.

With nothing left to lose, I write Jack a goodbye letter and head for Portland, where I quickly meet a neighbor who helps me find a job.

My new neighbor — hot, tattooed ex-soldier Isaac Evans — is complicated. Nevertheless, we form a fast friendship, bonding over our mutual desire to create something beautiful from the wreckage of our lives.

But despite the distance between us, Jack and I are still trying to make things work. And he doesn’t appreciate my new friendship with Isaac. Not one damn bit.

A hard-hitting, emotional new series from New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo.

4.5 out of 5 stars

After a tragic event, Laurel and Jack's marriage suffered the aftereffects. Jack wanted revenge and justice. Laurel wanted to let it go and move on.

The two couldn't find the balance they previously had, so Laurel moved to her mother's house in Portland during the separation.

As she started to fix up her mother's home and garden, she developed a relationship with her sexy neighbor. A relationship that didn't involve sex or money.

Isaac is patient, attentive, and kind. Although at times I was hoping for the marriage to work, I also really enjoyed the relationship between Laurel and Isaac. If you asked me which man is better, I wouldn't be able to answer you because I liked them both. I loved Jack's dominating personality and desire to protect, and I loved Isaac's patience and kindness.

If you're not into books about cheating (even emotionally), then this one is probably not going to be enjoyable for you. But if you like steamy romances with crossroads, pick this up. Cassia Leo's writing is absolutely addicting.
