YaYa's Review

***New Author Review***

(Doesn’t mean they are freshly new, just new to me.)

What did I enjoy about this story?

I’d like to call this book the perfect example of opposites attract. Two people from two completely different worlds. The tattoo artists meets the wine maker, business man. So was it Insta-Love? Maybe for the hero because this heroine was not thinking of love at all. Her walls are bigger than the Great Wall of China. You know how that goes in these types of stories. You let life handle it. But it also came down to a very resilient man willing to take a risk at life and pursue this woman who has put some color into his life. It all comes with a price. Break down her walls, make her see she is worth it. With a name like Lawson Coal, he came in like a wrecking ball.

“We all have a darkness I just wear mine.”

So Lily is our heroine. She made me see red a bit. But like I mentioned she has these big walls put up and she’s sort of like an Alpha herself. Runs her own business, makes her own money, doesn’t need anyone. Her way of coping with life may not be right in the eyes of others. What you need to understand is she was hurting, maybe too much, but if men can do it, why not women? See that’s probably why I also liked the story. A lot of the things Lily does I expect from the men in the stories. Her characteristics are more of a rock star type character we are used to reading about. Although I wanted to kill her at times it wasn’t enough to for me to give up on the story.

Lawson is indescribable to me. I don’t know what I can say but that he cared too much. No rightful man would put up with that. He never gives up on Lily and even after finding out some of her past, it’s still not enough to cause him to run away. Not being biased here but it’s really hard to not like him. Yes I yelled a couple of times “Lawson leave it alone. Give up already.” Way to cheer him up. I know. You’ll get me once you read it. Their banter is quite funny. Lily assumes she’s going to handle this like she handles everything else. That’s where I was all like “Sit your ass down Lily. The LAW is here.” I loved it when he would tell her to “Watch that mouth”. Made me giggle and all.

One more thing, the use of her art work. Loved it. Lily is very talented. Just needed the right person to point it out unlike the usual scumbags.

What I didn’t like?

First was Lily. Not the character but her actions were too much. She really pushed it overboard with how many times one can mess up and be forgiven. Lily knew where she messed up and half the time on purpose. Maybe more than half. I knew it’d be part of the whole angst, new man was going to win her over, but it didn’t make it easier. Always running to the wrong person but that little twist sort of needed to be there. It shows it’s not always safe to think you have it all handled and things always work your way. No they don’t.

The use of “I”. I’m no editor but I thought one of their many jobs is to help with grammar. The paragraphs almost had so many I’s it was giving me whiplash. Yes I understand it’s told in first person. I’ve read many. At times I felt I was reading a diary or some kind of journal where you pour your feelings out. It annoyed me and yet I continued to read it because the story really was worth finishing.

If you’re looking for new authors and new stories like I constantly am, give it a try. I already gave you all the necessary warnings. It does have an HEA and even that was different. Not your usual boy meets girl, rocks her world, they get married and have kids. Nope. I’m very pleased with the ending. You can make up your future or what’s to come if you like doing that. I wonder what they’re doing now? How colorful is their life now?

PS: Very hot Sexy Times and some kick ass music.

Happy Readings

*An ARC was received from the author for an honest review.

Hi! I am Danielle live in Western New York with my husband and two sons. I never knew I had a dream to become a writer until I started becoming obsessed with reading in the last two years. The obsession began with Twilight and then matured to Fifty Shades. While used to reading mainstream best sellers, found a new love for indie authors. I love to do paintings related to the books I read and eventually turning into Pushy Girl Paintings and now do work for other indie writers and readers. My first book idea started from a dream I had one night and became obsessed with the story and started writing. Now having arguments with the people in my head and loving every moment of it, even when they take control of the story.
