Choices in life are hard.

College student Emily Reynolds has been in a three year relationship with Cooper Thomason but one awful night has left their relationship shaken. She soon finds out she is pregnant and Cooper can’t give up his partying ways. Emily leaves Cooper and tries to find a life without him. She finds out a life without Cooper is harder than she thinks. Will Emily be able to move on from Cooper and find a relationship with another man or run back to him?

My Review

5 of 5 Emily And Cooper

Trying To Get Over You is an incredible and emotional read all wrapped up into one. I could not put this book down because I had to see what was going to happen to this couple. I mean college is hard enough as it is but add to the mix a relationship and then a pregnancy that is enough to stress anyone out. 

Emily and Cooper have been together for three years. They have been going strong and Cooper loves Emily like no one's business. As they are together at school Emily starts to worry about Cooper's drug use and hanging out all the time. But Cooper tells her has it under control when he does not. Soon one mistake between Cooper and Emily brings the house of cards tumbling down. Emily finds out she is pregnant and she is scared to death because Cooper's drug use has gotten worse. What is Emily to do? Should she tell Cooper she is pregnant or not and when she does what will happen? How will Cooper respond?

Emily is also worried about Cooper's drug use getting worse and after talking to Cooper Emily knows what she must do. She leaves Cooper and he is devastated but he has decided that it is time to get his stuff together. As Emily tries to move on she realizes that she can't. She loves Cooper to much and Cooper loves her and he is determined to right the wrong he has done. But will Cooper be able to stop the drugs and get Emily back?

This is such an emotional read that will leave you breathless and full of tears! Get the box of tissues out because you are going to need them!
