New Release Book Review: Envy by Dylan Allen



an all-new emotional and romantic standalone from Dylan Allen is available NOW!


If envy is a sin, then let me be damned.

Graham was born to be a star.

Once upon a time, that star shone only for me.

Now, I have to share him with the rest of the world.

For a while, I thought I could do it. Because, beneath the hypnotic smile, gorgeous body and God-given charm that made him famous, I still caught glimpses of my best friend.

Of the boy who called me sunshine and loved me.

I wore that love like a crown . . . until he placed it on another’s head.

Losing him was agony, distance felt like the only cure.

When tragedy reunites us after years apart, it only takes one touch to erase the past. Just like that, I'm back in his arms.

He promises this time will be different. But I’m afraid to believe him.

Because behind his star’s blinding brilliance is a darkness that doesn’t want to let him go.

I know a star that bright can’t belong to just one person, but my jealous heart doesn’t want to share him.

I want all of him . . . even if wanting what doesn't belong to me leads me to ruin.


My Thoughts

“It’s just us ... the sun and her star.”

Dylan Allen has such a way with words that I find myself just getting immersed in the story and in the lives of her characters. Envy is a beautiful story.

We first meet Apollo and Graham during their childhood. Not only did they meet in the most unique way, but we get to see the blossoming of a most beautiful friendship among the desolation of a lonely and harsh life. As the years go by we see Apollo and Graham grow, learn, suffer losses, and have successes. And as strong as their friendship is, forces are in play that create cracks in what was once an unbreakable friendship.

There are so many highs and lows in their lives that my emotions were seesawing along with those of the characters. These characters are authentic. They’re genuine, flawed, serious, fun. I laughed with them. I cried with them. I supported them when they were lost. I cheered for them when they finally found not only friendship but the deepest love with each other.
