Review + Giveaway: ABRUPTION by Riley Mackenzie


Riley Mackenzie contacted our blog back in February about reviewing a copy of their new book ABRUPTION. After reading the Synopsis (see below) I knew I had to read it. Little did I know what this book would really mean to me. I’m going to do my best to keep this review as vague as possible on some points because I feel going into it blind enhances the story line.

Rating: 5/5 stars
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: ABRUPTION is a stand-alone novel
Everyone has a plan.

Dr. Guy Hunter secures his dream fellowship with a beautiful free spirit at his side. Two unexpected blue lines don’t even shake his resolve – he is on his way to having it all. Until he isn’t.
Abruption: a sudden breaking off
Jules Chaippetti loves her boisterous over-involved Italian family but is determined to pave her own way. An MBA and boardroom job is her ticket out. Until it isn’t.
Abruption: an unexpected event
Four years later, Guy is consumed by the challenges of being a single father, still struggling with the aftermath that derailed his life and left his son with special needs. He doesn’t realize his world went dark the same day his wife did, until Jules, his son’s new nurse, shows him the light.

I want to start off by saying that this book had such a profound impact on me that I’ve been struggling with getting all of my thoughts and feelings from inside my head to paper. ABRUPTION is a New Adult Contemporary Romance told through a dual point of view; Alternating between the male and female protagonists. From the synopsis we learn that the book follows a doctor and who is left to pick up the pieces and adjust to single parenthood after losing his wife. I had a strong connection to so many of the characters in this book. Many of my family members work in the medical field or have some of the same medical conditions discussed in this book. So while I read about nurses, doctors and kids with chronic illnesses it felt like these characters WERE my family. I laughed. I cried. I ached. Just as the characters of ABRUPTION did. One of my favorite quotes from the book gave me hope. Made me realize that every struggle we go through is worth it and only makes us stronger for "weathering the storm."



“Your life is like this tree, deeply rooted, with a solid foundation and countless branches linking your past throes with future dreams. Every tree faces inevitable storms and strong winds testing the strength of its roots. Branches break; new ones grow. It will flower and leaves will fall. And from your tree new life will emerge. In the end, though, with purpose and perseverance your tree will prevail, and each will be beautifully individual and uniquely different. A full circle of such.”



I read ABRUPTION pretty slowly compared to how long it usually takes me to read a book. I think this made it more meaningful to me. I was able to savor the characters and storyline. This story was rich and always kept me wanting more. There were so many different twists and turns that literally hit me out of nowhere. I highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys contemporary romance books that stand out from so many. I think anyone who is a fan of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy will LOVE this book.  ABRUPTION has romance, drama, heartache and healing.

I even loved this book so much that I am giving away 3 kindle copies on my Instagram page. Head on over if you want a chance to read this amazing book!

 FIRE by Kathy Coopmans & Hilary Storm. #MilitaryRomance


Pick up your copy for an April 26th release here:


Love, a word never on my radar, has now taken over my existence.  My world revolves around this man. 
I’m in love with him because of the deep connection I felt the second I saw him and dealing with the torture of this week has only intensified my feelings.  My mind went crazy, thinking of everything he went through, as I examined all of the marks on his body.  I can tell he was whipped many times.  The wounds are starting to heal, but I’m afraid the surface scars will always be there.  And I don’t even want to think about the internal scars something like this would bring.
I don’t care what he looks like or how much this will torment him.  He takes me and I take him just the way he is.  He’s been point blank about wanting me from the first day we met, and now it’s time I match his determination.  His blastoff introduction to have me on my knees that first day could’ve so easily gone a different way.  I’m just glad I felt the connection the second I laid my eyes on him.
 
The moment you think you have it all is when it vanishes right before your eyes.

He had one final mission, but who knew it would go wrong? Kaleb Maverick is now fighting for his life. The life he wants to share with the woman he loves. The Fire inside him not only burns for her, it sizzles.

Jade Elliott has lost one man in her life. She's determined not to lose another. The coldness in her heart can't handle another loss like that. She refuses to let Kaleb go.

He's the Fire to her Ice. She's the Ice to his Fire. Together they cause an explosion so hot that someone is bound to get torched.

Nate: 
It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her. 

Emberlyn: 
The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.   

He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

Book Tour: BETWEEN US by Ella Fox

His lifestyle.  His rules.
Is she willing to risk her heart to play his game?

Guitarist Cole Hayes learned early that falling in love is the easiest way to lose.  Determined never to go down that road, he sealed his heart off, numbing himself with erotic and sensual pleasures--with men and women alike. The rules were simple:  group sex only and never one-on-one.

It’s all so simple until he meets Devon Bannister, the beautiful director shooting the documentary on his band.  Suddenly, she's all he can think about. Neither can deny the attraction and desire between them.
Although Devon is open to exploring Cole's lifestyle, for the first time in his life, he finds himself reluctant to share.

How can he own all of her, if he's only willing to give half of himself?

 He’s dead still for a second, but then he wraps his arms around me and pulls me in close.  He’s right between my legs, and I shiver when I feel the cotton of his T-shirt against my inner thighs.  I gasp as the implication of why I can feel him hits me.

                 “Oh my God,” I sputter as I pull back.  “Holy shit!”

                 Cole quickly pulls back and looks up at me with concern.

                 “What’s wrong?”

                 When I went to dry the monitor, the thing I grabbed to do it was the hem of my white cotton dress—the hem of which had rested about an inch above my knee.  I’m now sitting here with it bunched up around my thighs.  I try not to look down, but can’t help it.  As quick as I bring my eyes back to his, it’s too late.  His gaze follows the path mine just did, and he lets out a choked noise when he realizes the state I’m in.

                 “Jesus, Devon,” he growls.  “Fuck.”

                 Lifting his head, he meets my eyes.  My breath stops, lodging somewhere in my chest when I see the look of hunger in his eyes.  The breath rushes out of me in a whoosh when he leans back and runs his hands up the inside of my thighs.

                 “You’re so soft,” he murmurs. “So beautiful.”

                 I expel the breath I’ve been holding in a rush. Seemingly of their own volition, my legs spread wider, allowing him to come in closer.
