I should have died.
I should have been forgotten.
But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.
Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.
Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.
Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.
Used to be.
And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.
I’m told that’s me.
But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place.
A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.
I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?

Lita T’s Review: 5 Stars
Asher (Ashes & Embers #6) by Carian Cole is the much anticipated story of Asher the lead singer and brooding brother of the infamous band. This book was well worth the wait. We final learned Asher’s story. 8 years ago while at his special place with his wife a tragedy takes place that leaves Ember in a coma. Now 8 years later his wife Ember has come out of her coma. Asher is elated to have his wife back. There is just one problem. Ember doesn’t remember who she is or her life. This is a story of a man deeply in love with a wife who doesn’t know who he is but is determined to win her over and/or at least hope she gets her memory back. This was a story of struggle, love,determination and persistence. Asher is the ultimate faithful husband who has been true all this time but now that she is awake he is struggling with the loss of her memory. Their struggle to get back what they once had was one that wasn’t easy and definitely not either one expected. I loved Asher to pieces and his struggle was extremely emotional to read. Ember struggled as well with not even recognizing the person in the mirror and the people who loved her most. Given journals Ember had written along with past stories, caused Ember to have conflicting feelings with who she is now with the person she use to be. I love a story that leaves a profound affect on me when I finish it and this story definitely did that for me. Of course seeing that old gang is always a treat since I loved all the previous books. Two new characters were introduced in this story and I am looking forward to their books and what their story is. The ending of this book was fabulous. I could have read more about Asher and Ember. Their story was a real treat. 5 stars for me. Hopefully we will not have to wait as long for the next book. I love this author’s way of telling a story. Kudos. 5 stars for me
