The Life in Her Eyes by Deborah Barry

Rae Crenshaw is a love ‘em and leave ‘em player. She can virtually have any woman she wants. Once badly hurt in love, Rae has no intentions of it ever happening again. But deep down, Rae is still hoping that she may find love again. Hoping that she will have a second chance. The problem is, she will have to let her guard down for that to happen. Will she be able to?

Evon Lagace’s life is in a complete mess. She failed as a dancer and now she is suffering an unbearable loss. Life for her is all but over, she can’t go much further down. Her once full and loving life is now full of pain, anguish and loneliness. Will Evon ever be able to let go of her past to have a second chance at love? Does she even want to? Or will the guilt eat her alive?

When Rae and Evon meet, Rae is immediately taken with Evon. But will she allow herself to love again? Evon can’t allow herself to love. She’s already had her one shot at true love. You do only get one chance, right? Wrong, but someone needs to tell Evon that. Will these two women ever sort out their pasts to allow them both a future together?

This is a well written, poignant story of love, survival and the possibility of second chances. The story is both tragic and exhilarating. The lives of these two extremely vulnerable women are connected in a way that will come as a surprise.

This book had me hooked into the story from the beginning. It created a mixture of emotions. It’s sad and tragic in parts. In other parts it is exciting and is hot and unpredictable. The stories of both Rae and Evon will stay with me for a very long time. In fact, I finished this book a few days ago and I’m still reeling from the story. Once I started this book, I was unable to put it down, so allow plenty of time to read it. This book is a definite re-read. It was published quite sometime ago and unfortunately I can’t find anything else written by Deborah Barry, which is a crying shame.
