Author: Cassia Leo
Series: Evergreen Series
Release: January 12, 2018
A hard-hitting, emotional new series from New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo.
Jack and I had everything. Then, in one brutal instant, the universe tilted on its side, discarding us into black nothingness.
Now, I have a cocky a**hole for a husband.
The only way we communicate anymore is when we’re fighting or f**king.
With nothing left to lose, I write Jack a goodbye letter and head for Portland, where I quickly meet a neighbor who helps me find a job.
My new neighbor—broody, tattooed ex-soldier Isaac Evans—is complicated. Nevertheless, we form a fast friendship, bonding over our mutual desire to create something beautiful from the wreckage of our lives.
But despite the distance between us, Jack and I are still trying to make things work—fighting and f**king dirtier than ever. And he doesn’t appreciate my new friendship with Isaac. Not one f**king bit.

“Every flower must grow through dirt”
Dirt is book one in the Evergreen series. I was blown away! The blurb tells a little about the story but it is so much deeper. Love & loss are hand in hand. Chapter one was so moving. I was emotionally drained! The story took me in and would not let go!
Jack and Laurel are fighting to survive a life altering event. They are both coping in different ways. Theirs is a journey of survival. Emotional connections, loss, revenge are all sowed throughout the story.
“We weren’t just lovers. We weren’t husband and wife. We weren’t just best friends. We weren’t just occasional enemies. We were survivors, bound to each other by the kind of excruciating torture no human should ever have to endure.”
Jack is such a strong character and very well written. His strength, tenacity, boldness are combined with absolute loyalty and alpha hotness! However, Jack cannot let go of the past. This is what needs to be done in order to heal and be present.
Jack and Laurel have a strong marriage, but even the strongest marriages can only take so much. Laurel in many ways was Jack’s equal, fierce and intelligent. Laurel is drowning. She has transitioned from an easy going, loving wife to a grief ridden shell of herself. She is a work in progress. Although she was absolutely shattered she is slowly healing and finding her way.
The story has other layers and characters as well, people associated with Jack and Laurel. It was not made clear what their connection really is. There are things going on in the background that are left unanswered.
I wondered about the title “Dirt” and then realized that as every flower must grow through dirt, Jack and Laurel’s story too is growing and blooming. But will the flowers blossom or wilt away?
I was surprised when the story ended on a cliff. All I have to say is I.Need.More.
