REVIEW – A CRACK IN EVERYTHING (Cracks Duet #1) by L.H. Cosway


Life used to be simple.

I was a city girl with humble dreams. Then Dylan O’Dea broke into my flat, held me against the wall and told me to stay quiet.
It was like in the movies, where the universe zeros in on a single scene. I looked into his eyes and knew he was going to change me.

For Dylan, the sky was always falling. He showed me how our world is a contradiction of beauty and ugliness. How we choose to ignore the awful and gloss over it with the palatable. How you need just a tiny drop of something unsavoury to create every great scent.

Pretty deep for a pair of teenagers living in a block of council flats in inner city Dublin, right? Probably. But we weren’t typical. We both had our obsessions. Mine was growing things, Dylan’s was scent. He taught me how to use my nose, and I introduced him to the magic of flowers.

I had no idea that one day he’d build an empire from what we started together. But before that, there was love and happiness, tragedy and epic heartbreak…

My name is Evelyn Flynn and I’m going to tell you about the crack in everything.

A Crack in Everything is Book #1 in L.H. Cosway’s Cracks duet.


*****Dee’s Review*****


Another beautiful masterpiece by L.H Cosway. Like every other story that I’ve ever read by this author, A Crack In Everything took hold of my heart from the very beginning. The beautiful characters, especially Sam, made an everlasting impression on me. Outstanding read!!!




A beautiful friendship that ends in tragedy, another friendship that turns into love. Pain and heartache can change your future in only one minute. And the only memory of that love can be the beautiful smell of a flower.

The way he spoke made me feel a sense of urgency, like I was watching a person race somewhere far beyond the horizon. I could try to follow, but I’d never be fast enough. Maybe that was the allure of Dylan O’Dea. He wasn’t meant for a place like this, and he wouldn’t be here long. I could feel it in my bones.



The ”Cracks Duet” is a tale of first loves, loss, and second chances. As always L.H. Cosway has created a story that reeled me in and held me captive. There are some amazing characters, but my heart completely melted for Dylan O’Dea. He’s a book boyfriend who will undoubtedly sweep many readers off their feet!

Dylan and Evelyn are two high school students who live in a low-income housing development in a town whose inhabitants are working class citizens who are barely making ends meet. There’s very little hope for a promising future for kids born into these circumstances, but Evelyn is filled with light and optimism. She looks for the good in everything. Evelyn makes a beautiful oasis by cultivating a rooftop garden where she plants her favorite flowers. At seventeen years old, she’s never had a serious boyfriend and when the mysterious and beautiful boy who lives in her building starts to show interest in Ev, it’s unfathomable to her.

Ev had only three people whom she held dear to her heart, her Gran, her Aunt, and her best-friend Sam. Dylan starts to become an integral part of her life and while it excites Ev, it also terrifies her because she knows that there is no way their love can last. Dylan is a brilliant student with a superhuman sense of smell. On the weekends, he works at a department store, selling high-end perfume. His dream is to someday create his own fragrance line. Dylan wants to leave Ireland and move to the U.S. so badly, there’s no question that he’s going to make his dreams come true. But there’s one thing he wants even more, and that’s for Ev to come with him. Ev is stubborn and adamant about staying where she is so that she can care for her Gran. She’s hiding behind that excuse because deep down she’s afraid to take a chance and a personal tragedy has burned out the light that used to radiate from within her.

Here are my overall ratings on the book:

Heroes: 5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4.5

The first installment ends in massive heartbreak. You will need a box of tissues and be prepared for the ugly cry.

Will Dylan and Ev find their way back to each other? One can only hope. 😊

A CRACK IN EVERYTHING is currently available! A definite one-click worthy book!
