The Darkest Part by Trisha Wolfe
Pressing the boundaries of both the psyche and the heart, Sam and Holden embark on a dangerous journey that will test the limits of love.
Sam Wintry’s life used to be almost perfect. She was engaged to her childhood best friend and high school sweetheart, Tyler Marks, planning an amazing cross-country honeymoon during her college break. But after a hit-and-run leaves her in ruin, she begins seeing Tyler’s fractured, ghostly presence, and her family believes she’s losing her mind. Not until she completes their journey, stopping along the way to scatter Tyler's remains, will Tyler be able cross over. Only...is Sam ready for him to leave her?
When the black sheep of the Marks' family, Holden Marks, returns to check on Tyler's case, Sam convinces him to give her his brother's ashes. Despite their shaky history, she needs him...plus, he owes it to Sam and his brother. What she doesn’t count on is Holden’s relentlessness to go on the trip.
On the road, Holden realizes just how unhinged Sam has become. Dealing with her psychosis forces him to confront his dark past, making it harder to keep secrets hidden that should remain buried. Especially from Sam, the only woman he’s ever loved. And as Sam starts to unravel the truth, she begins to question if the brother she's unwillingly falling for again is in an even darker place than her.

This book was an emotional rollacoaster and I loved every second of it. At times I believed that Tyler was really there with Sam and the other times it was obvious it was all in her head. I liked Sam. She tries to live even though her delusions follow her everywhere and I loved how she went on the road trip just so she can put her dead boyfriend and her best friend to rest and so he can be in peace. Her delusion of Tyler make her believe he is going into the darkness so she must save him. Enter Holden, Tylers brother and the moody, artistic type *swoon* who has a past with Sam which he never forgot. Along their road trip secrets come out, old hurt feelings resurface and the love they thought they buried deep down comes alive again. I love this story and how it was written. Trisha Wolfe did a masterful job bringing all those emotions to life and I couldnt be happier with the outcome.
