I was warned about Tristan Cole.
“Stay away from him,” people said.
It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster.
But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.
We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else. Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.
Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review and I have to say I was more than a little excited, I mean check out that cover for starters!
I admit Brittainy C Cherry is a new author to me and I wasn’t sure what to expect but from the very beginning I was captivated by her writing. Brittainy has a natural flair with words creating beautiful sentences that read like poetry. This is a refreshing find in contemporary romance.
“We shared the same kind of laugh that was quiet, yet grew loud in the company of those we loved”
“I whispered his name, as if he could hear me, and I hugged the thought of him kissing me and holding me in his arms” but traditional lovers of new adult romance needn’t worry there is plenty of smouldering moments to satisfy your fantasies and have you thinking of Tristan long after you close the book “I can be rough. I can be gentle. I can make you scream. I can make you cry. I can fuck you so hard that you won’t be able to move. I can fuck you so slow that you’ll think I’m in love with you”
Tristan and Elizabeth have both suffered at the hands of heartbreak and your own heart will bleed right along with them as they struggle to overcome their demons, but their chemistry is evident. Elizabeth’s daughter Emma is heart warmingly adorable. Her best friend Faye is hilariously loveable (so much so I’m praying she gets her own book!) and there is enough twists and turns along way to keep you on your toes and stop the story becoming stagnant.
The only reason I have not awarded five stars is due to one element of the story that I just couldn’t relate to and wish it had been handled differently but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have already downloaded another of her offerings.
All in all, this is a no brainer one click piece of lit which will take you through every emotion possible and leave you thoroughly drained but satisfied.
