Their marriage was a fairy tale.

Now they’re fighting to hold on.
But their attractive new neighbor is going to complicate things.
Jack and Laurel had everything. Then, in one brutal instant, the universe tilted on its side, discarding them into black nothingness.
Now, Jack is obsessed with revenge and Laurel is desperate to leave the past behind her. The only way they communicate anymore is in the bedroom. With nothing left to lose, she pens a goodbye letter and heads for Portland, where she quickly meets a neighbor who helps her find a job.
Her new neighbor—handsome ex-soldier Isaac Evans—is complicated. Nevertheless, they form a fast friendship, bonding over their mutual desire to create something beautiful from the wreckage of their lives.
But despite the distance between them, Jack and Laurel are still trying to make things work—fighting and playing dirtier than ever. And he doesn’t appreciate Laurel's new friendship with Isaac. Not one damn bit.

Amazingly Good! Must Read!
Holy S***!!! Dirt was SO good! The author grabbed my attention on page one and held it fiercely until the very end! Dirt is a story of a married couple, Jack and Laurel who are deeply in love and are living a wonderful life together. Until tragedy strikes and they are left not knowing how to go on with their lives. Jack is obsessed with trying to find out who caused the tragedy and Laurel is just depressed and feels so alone. They are no longer that happy couple. The book is told in both of their POV’s (and a few chapters in Issac’s, the neighbor) I totally understood why Jack was behaving the way he was and why Laurel behaved the way she did. Issac is Laurels new neighbor and they have become friends. He is former military and estranged from his family. He and Laurel had a lot in common and I understood why they bonded the way the did. However, I’m not really sure what role he will play in the future. The book ended in an unforeseen cliffhanger. I was dumbfounded! But I’m not upset, I think it was brilliant on the authors part. I spent a few days thinking about this series. I thought back about the things I had read and I was trying to figure out where I thought the story was gonna go in the next two books. I absolutely loved this book and I’ll be anxiously awaiting book two the series. Good Job Ms. Leo!
This book was brilliant, intense, beautifully broken, smoldering hot, painful and heart shattering. I have read it several times and my heart is still processing. This is a story you will never forget. You are going to be torn wide open. You are going to feel and you may not always like how you’re feeling, but I wouldn’t change a thing. Prepare yourself for one shocking cliffhanger that makes me want Seed in a desperate way!
Great start to a series
4 stars for - Dirt - book one in the Evergreen series by Cassia Leo. This being only the first of three planned books we end up with too many questions with not enough answers and don’t even get me started on that cliffhanger ending!
Laurel and Jack are forced to suffer through the worst possible loss imaginable. They have barely managed to maintain their lives together and now two year later Laurel decides a separation is needed to fix their marriage.
Laurel moves back to her childhood home in Portland while leaving Jack behind in Hood River. While she fully intends this to be a temporary move she needs to find the person she once was before tragedy and loss took so much from them.
Laurel - while extremely fragile - is still very much in love with her husband. Therefore she finds it quite difficult to stay away from him and rather enjoys when he comes to visit, but sex was never their problem. Now all that emotional stuff is what he can’t really deal with too well.
To make things even more interesting - there just so happens to be a insanely handsome ex-soldier with tattoos and a freaking man-bun living right next door that is there for anything Laurel “needs help with”.
Jack is broken, Laurel is broken and together they are a hot mess. I’m not sure what is gonna happen next but I can’t freaking wait to read it!!!
