Unspeakable Truths by Alice Tribue ~ Review

By Alice Tribue
Released on September 16th
Approx 247 pages


Everything I ever learned about fairy-tales was a fucking lie…

Four years ago, my life was everything I wanted it to be: I had everything I wanted, everything I needed, in my best friend and newly wedded husband—Tyler.

Yet, hours after we said "I do," I lost him.


The dreams we'd shared, the future we'd planned—all of our hopes and desires, were ripped away in mere seconds.

And now, four years later, my life still feels like a hopeless eternity.

So, I guess it's quite fitting that the last person I want to hear from is currently standing at my front door.

He wants to tell me the truth about that night, he wants to be my new knight in shining armor, but the thing is…

He was the best man...




**NOTE I typically avoid any and all spoilers however you will find a few in this review. Unspeakable Truths is a multi faceted story that is nearly impossible to fully review without giving away some spoilers. SO if you want to read the book blindly I suggest stopping now.**

Unspeakable Truths is one of those books that you will find yourself wondering “did I just read that right” over and over again. So lets just dig right in to the nitty gritty. The Prologue… is amazing and at first I felt like “am I reading a Prologue or an Epilogue?” THEN you get to Chapter 1 and you find out that the fairytale has been ripped right out of their hands.

Every Phillips appeared to have the world at her fingertips. She recently finished college, just completed construction on her custom built home and married the man of her dreams. Only thing left was to live out her happy ever after…
In everyone’s life there are moments in time, events that define you, instances that affect you in such a way that they alter the way that you think, the way that you choose to live your life. For me losing Tyler is the thing that defines me because when he died he left a gaping hole in my heart so large that nothing could ever fill it.
Luca Jensen was Tyler’s best friend. He was the best man in Tyler and Everly’s wedding and with Tyler the night of the accident. 
“I don’t need you to hate me Embry, I already hate myself. Don’t think for one minute, for one fucking minute that I don’t blame myself, that I don’t live with that every single day of my life. You think I don’t know that I pulled him away from life? You think I don’t know that he’s dead because of me? I fucking know!”
Their worlds were ripped apart. Luca relocated and Everly nearly became a recluse. This lasted for nearly four years.
Perhaps the misery and loneliness I feel here is my way of punishing myself for living.
In a chance meeting Luca and Everly reunited. Although this meeting was anything but happy. Not only did Everly believe Luca was responsible for Tyler’s death BUT she also believed Luca had always hated her. She was wrong… really really wrong, on so many levels!!!
“I think we both need the closure, I know I do and there are things that you just don’t understand.”
My voice drips with disdain. “You’re not looking for closure, you’re looking for forgiveness.” “Fuck forgiveness! I don’t need your forgiveness or anyone else’s for that matter. What I need is for you to understand, for you to see that I would never do anything to hurt Tyler.”
And so it begins. The fireworks, the thrill of the ride and the oh so sweet build!!!  Walls crumble, secrets are unveiled.  Two people struggle with attraction and with what some may consider a forbidden romance.

Unspeakable Truths is an amazing story filled with heartache, sarcasm and really really hot sex. In some ways it is a second chance at live for this couple. Don’t we all want to believe that when life has dealt us a shitty hand, maybe just maybe there can be light at the end of the tunnel. I highly recommend you grab this book TODAY!!!
