SarahBeth Pearson has made mistakes, and I might just be the biggest one of them all. After spending months keeping secrets and lying to everyone close to us, its all fallen apart and we are each left alone to pick up the pieces.
Ive loved SarahBeth in one form or another her entire life. The steps that brought us closer together werent easy for me to take. After letting her dictate our relationship, Ive found myself practically homeless and estranged from my closest friends.
Now Im left trying to move on, finding a new place to live and getting everything I need in order, while shes trying to mend her broken heart. Theres just one problem…SarahBeths still keeping secrets - and her secret just might change everything.




"Isn't that SarahBeth?" Melanie asks, looking over to where a small 

blonde and a brunette are running towards a hallway between stores that 

leads to restrooms. I jerk around in my seat, trying to look closer and when 

I see Tyler watching after them, holding a purse and a few shopping bags, I 

know for sure it's them. At my nod, Mel touches my hand, bringing my gaze 

back to her earnest one. "Don't you want to go check on her? Make sure 

she's alright?"

Do I want to? Yes, absolutely. Should I? Well, that's another matter 

entirely. I look back to the corridor they disappeared through, but don’t see 

them any longer. Just when I'm about to tell her no, I don't want to check on 

her, Tyler's eyes meet mine and the blatant worry in them has me nodding 

and heading in his direction. I don't look back to see if Melanie followed me 

because honestly, all I can think about is what could possibly put that look 

in Tyler's eyes.

"Is she okay?" It's all I can do to keep my voice level when I reach him 

and ask the question I need the answer to the most. 

Tyler's looking everywhere but at me when he replies, "Yeah mate, she's 

fine. You can go back to whatever you were doing now." His voice is hard, 

it's easy to tell he's not happy at finding me with Mel, but his feelings aren't 

what worry me now.

Before I can ask any more questions, Olivia and Sarah are walking back 

in our direction. They both stop in their tracks when they see me standing 

with Tyler. The moment she notices Melanie standing next to me her 

already pale skin loses all color and she begins backing up, away from our 

little group. The hurt in her eyes has me moving towards her before I can 

even process it. I want to explain myself. When what I'm doing registers, 

I stop, trying to keep myself in place, but when her eyes fill with tears and 

they overflow, rolling soundlessly down her cheeks, I melt.

Reaching her, I cup her face in my hands, brushing away the tears as 

she trembles beneath me. It's the first time I've really touched her since 

everything went to shit and having my hands on her, having her this close 

to me, I feel like I've come home. Unable to hide the emotions racing 

across my face, I let her see just how much I've missed her as her breath 

catches in her throat. Her eyes are bouncing back and forth between mine 

in disbelief while the look on her face has me aching to touch my mouth to 

hers, to pull her into me so I can hold her.

I don't get the chance to do any of that because at the same time a hand 

touches my back, SarahBeth sucks in a breath and steps back, her eyes 

brimming with tears even while she glares up at me, betrayal all over her 

face. I want to explain, to tell her what I'm doing here with Mel, to reassure 

her that it's not what it seems, but in the back of my head I think this is a 

good thing. I want her to let go of me, to begin to move on, to find someone 

that deserves her. Letting her think I've replaced her, no matter how much 

it hurts us both, is probably for the best.

"Wait SarahBeth," Melanie begins as I step away from her touch. 

Instead, I grab the hand that was on my back and link our fingers together, 

this draws both her eyes and SarahBeth's. Mel's looks confused, but 

SarahBeth's guts me. She stares at our linked hands with an expression 

that's a cross between fury and despair before swiping her hands across 

her cheeks to brush away the few falling tears, and meeting my gaze head 

on. 

Her eyes are sparking with a fire I haven't seen in so long that I'm almost 

relieved. As she straightens her spine and holds her head high. she turns 

to Mel and smiles. Just barely tipping the corners of her lips up her smile 

is clearly fake but there nonetheless, she says, "It's fine really. I'm glad 

he has someone." Mel starts to speak up, but SarahBeth keeps her eyes 

on me as Olivia walks up beside her, puts an arm around her shoulder 

and glares at me. If looks could kill...that girl hates me. She starts to say 

something in her ear, but Sarah shakes her head. "There's nothing to say. 

I'm done with this," with that said she scoots out from under Olivia's arm 

and turns her back on me, this time I'm sure for good, and leaves me to 

watch her walk away from me this time.

Tyler hurries to walk after them, muttering, "You're a bloody idiot mate," 

as he passes me. He doesn't get far before he stops, turns around and 

glares at me, much like Olivia did. "If you only knew..." he shakes his 

head, "Well, that would have gone a lot differently." I don't get the chance 

to ask him what he means before he heads after them, dropping an arm 

across each of their shoulders and handing the bags he was holding to 

Olivia.



This was a great conclusion to SarahBeth and Jeremy’s story and it seamlessly picks up where Everything I Shouldn’t ends off.  Jer and SB each collectively have a secrets that they are keeping from each other while Jeremy thinks keeping his is the only way to keep her safe, SB is keeping her pregnancy from Jeremy because she is under the assumption that he no longer wants to be with her and wants to be sure that isn’t the case before telling him. 

Stacey takes you on a rollercoaster ride full of emotions… I was sucked in as soon as I started the book and never looked up until I was finished. I did honestly want to smack both SB & Jer in the back of their heads at certain points and yell just tell each other what the hell is going on already since they are both just as stubborn as they were in the previous book. I was happy to see that SB and Lyric were mending their relationship and seemed to be growing closer to each other while David (oh my hotness) had to step up and not only have his brotherly role but also had to take on a fatherly role for SB’s sake. 

Secrets are shared and thankfully SB and Jeremy work through their problems and end up being the amazing couple that we all knew could be, David and Lyric’s relationship keeps getting stronger (now I’d like to see Lyric make an honest man out of David *wiggles eyebrows*) and there is a brand spanking new Meloni!!!

 I truly love this series and can’t wait to read SB’s best friend Livvie’s story which is next up in the grand scheme of things… boy does her situation seem to be crazy yet smoking hot!! I highly recommend this series to everyone and am giving Everything I Need 5 sparkling stars!!
