When Blake Connor returns from Afghanistan, he wants nothing more than to hide from the world. He’s plagued by the memory of his best friend’s death and the pain of his own injuries. That same friend’s dying wish is just one more burden he must carry.

Jennifer Owens had expected to get married the moment her fiancĂ© returned from the war, but the news of his death changed everything. When an unexpected letter arrives a year later, it raises new questions and opens old wounds. Her search for answers leads her to Blake’s doorstep.

Although Blake seems determined to keep her at arms’ length, Jennifer recognizes the beauty that lies beneath his scars and confronts him with the truth. Nothing will ever be the same for this broken ex-Army Ranger, but he must overcome his warped self-image and emotional scars if he’s going to be the man Jennifer deserves.


    “I know you think I pity you, but I don’t. You have enough for all of us. Sure, half of your face is burned and you lost an eye, but life doesn’t stop there. You still have a lot to offer. You turn your mother away because she loves you and she wants to care for you. It is obvious that a woman hurt you in the process, and you think the rest of us are out to get you. Wake up and smell the coffee, Blake. Life continued whether you like it or not, and you have to catch up.” Jennifer pried his fingers off her wrist and hurried out of the room.

His Reverie by Monica Murphy

I knew from the moment I first saw her she was the one. The only girl I could ever want.

The only girl I could ever love.

She is light.

I am darkness.

She is innocent.

I’ve done too much.

She is good.

I am bad.

She is my every dream.

I should be her every nightmare.

We come from different worlds. She’s…perfect. And I’m…


Somehow she wants me anyway. So we’ll grasp at what we can. We’re going to make this summer count. She’s my secret. And I’m hers.

The problem with secrets is they never last for long. And when others discover we’re together, they’ll do whatever it takes to keep us apart. All I know is: I won’t let them.

Because Reverie Hale? She’s mine.

Nick gets out of jail after being unjustly convicted. He has lost any and everyone close to him and is trying to start a new life. Guy meets girl who happens to be his boss' daughter. Sounds like the mixture of a great story. I wasn't the most impressed. I think, partially, because of the character of Reverie--she's REALLY young and naive whereas Nick is very...well, not. It makes for an awkward relationship between the two and, thus, a bit of an awkward read. The story is told in both Nick and Reverie's POVs--Reverie's in the form of diary entries--which is different and pretty neat BUT I felt like I was reading a twelve-year-old's diary...There isn't much development of other characters, either. There's Michael, Nick's colleague--he doesn't serve much purpose in the story and then there's Nick's ex-girlfriend plays a very specific role but it seems like the second she did what she needed to do for the story, she gets dropped. 

Though I didn't fall in love with Nick and Reverie (the chemistry just isn't there for me), I am still interested in finding out what's going on at the Hales' home and whether or not Nick gets pinned again. If you're not one for cliffhanger endings, this one's not for you (well, not until the next installment comes out)!

Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine

Pixie and Levi haven't spoken in nearly a year when they find themselves working―and living―at the same inn in the middle of nowhere. Once upon a time, they were childhood friends. But that was before everything went to hell. And now things are... awkward.

All they want to do is avoid each other, and their past, for as long as possible. But now that they're forced to share a bathroom, and therefore a shower, keeping their distance from one another becomes less difficult than keeping their hands off each other. Welcome to the hallway of awkward tension and sexual frustration, folks. Get comfy. It’s going to be a long summer.

"Because I'm yours. Even when you don't want me, I'm yours."

It actually took me awhile to get into Best Kind of Broken. It took awhile to get into exactly what happened to cause the crazy tension between Pixie and Levi and then to get into the nature of their relationship. I think by the time the "action" really started, we were about halfway into the book. That being said, I was not at all disappointed with where the story went! I loved the development of the characters. The focus of the book is mostly on Pixie and Levi and how they were each coping with the tragic events that tie them together. Even moreso, how they realize that to truly move on, they needed each other. It's interesting to see how one event could effect two different lives in very different ways. I could really feel how strong a bond Pixie and Levi have to each other. The sexual frustration, tension and chemistry between the two of them jump right off the pages! Slow to start but ended up being a great read about finding love in the difficult healing process from having lost loved ones.

Blog Tour: 8 Weeks by Bethany Lopez

Is eight weeks enough time to earn back the love of someone you've betrayed...the only one you've ever loved? 

Shelly has been in love with Cal since they started dating in eleventh grade. Despite everyone saying that the odds were against them, they got married after graduation and built a life together. Now, six years later, she is faced with the ultimate betrayal. Devastated, her first instinct is to call it quits…

After a drunken binge at his best friends’ bachelor party, Cal betrays the one person who has always been there for him, his wife, Shelly. Terrified and realizing she might divorce him, Cal must come up with a way to prove to her that his love is true… 

Cal asks Shelly for eight weeks. Eight weeks to convince her that their marriage is worth the fight. Will Shelly be able to trust him again, or will their marriage end the way many others do when faced with opposition… In divorce?

The thing that first drew me to this book was the premise--8 weeks for Cal to convince Shelly that their marriage is worth saving. Everything is exciting when you're put up against time but I'm a strong believer that trust will never be fully regained once broken so I was very interested in seeing how this story worked out.

Right off the bat, I must say that it is the friends that surround Cal and Shelly that give this story a good feeling. I wasn't overly pulled into Cal and Shelly's relationship/story alone. I felt that it was a bit bland but that was fixed with the colours of the supportive cast that surrounded them. I didn't like that we know nothing about what happened to Cal in Vegas and I disliked, even more, that we really learn nothing else about it. If I were Shelly, I wouldn't be able to even think about moving on and forgiving Cal unless I KNEW the details of what went on. Is there a chance of STIs or a bastard child? ...questions, questions, questions! I'm totally in Shelly's court with the hard-ass-give-me-a-divorce outlook. It's definitely a stance I'd take. I will give it to Cal, though, he genuinely seems to want to rectify everything that happened (what, oh what, happened?!) in Vegas. 

The writing was great which is another reason why I enjoyed the book despite not totally being in love with the couple at the center of all things. Bethany spins a good story and really works in the supporting cast in a very encompassing way. They're there to literally support and be a part of the novel vs just being a name in the background. I know I'm not being very eloquent but I hope I'm getting that point across. Looking forward to more of this series--hope that there's a couple I can fall in love with :)
