We made it through our first week of traveling. I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to post a blog this week or not but of course… I couldn’t contain myself.
I managed to get through 2.5 books. I read on the way down there, on the beach, and on the way back. And I know what some of you are thinking… you are in the Bahamas and you are reading!? In all seriousness, nothing relaxes me more than reading on the beach. Eric understands that but I promise I didn’t read the whole time.
I still have 2.5 books left to read in this two week vacation trip. However, I wanted to post the two books that I did finish.
Can You Hear It by Casey Diam
I love being able to stumble upon a new author and immediately fall in love with her writing.
Can You Hear It tells a story about the difficulties of high school, the obstacles you face, and finding yourself. The story of Ashton and Averie was just that. This beautiful sports romance is filled with secrets and sad tragedies that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
If you enjoy holding a book for a few hours then read Can You Hear It by Casey Diam because I promise you, you won’t be able to put it down.
Those were the root of all evil. One of those became the root of mine the day I lost the love of my life. My best friend. My lover.
Everyone disregarded it, saying, “Let’s face it, Averie, you have the rest of your life ahead of you.” They were wrong. James Lawrence was my ever after . . . until Ashton.
If only he didn’t come bearing his own brand of evil.
The reason he wanted me to stay away.
I should have listened, and he should have tried harder, but both of us failed. And if we hadn’t, if he had told me when we first met, would it have altered the moment I realized that I was falling for him?
The slight variation in the air. The hitch in my breath. The lightness in my chest.
Impossible to know; I’d already fallen.
I was already ruined.
Ache by S.M. Soto
I received this book in my BookWorm Box and for some reason I put it aside. However, nothing like starting a book and finishing it in one day while in the Bahamas… on your honeymoon. It was that good!
This book was a very hard read. And by hard reading, I mean very emotional, very angst, and very bitter. But don’t let that scare you away. It wasn’t all flowers and butterflies. It was just… rough! There is a happy ending in the end.. I promise!
What Bea had to endure was troublesome and heavy. Even though the pain she had to experience was very tough. Bea had to find her one true love in this beautiful, heartbreaking, second chance love story.
**THIS BOOK CONTAINS ABUSE**
What happens when you fall for the boy next door?
Bea Norwood had the market on normal.
Drama free life? Check.
A single-mother who doubled as her confidant and partner in crime? Check.
A neighbor and best friend she trusted more than anyone? Check.
But that was until the day her mother remarried. The day that changed everything.
When her best friend’s cousin, Liam Falcon, is sent to live with his aunt and uncle to clean up his act, Bea finds herself falling for the boy next door. With their hearts so infinitely entwined, Bea turns to Liam as her only escape from her new step-brother’s daily torment at home. Bea thought their love could conquer anything. But she was wrong. Love was for fools, and she was the biggest fool of them all. When Liam left Lakeport, he took her heart with him, shattering the organ to pieces.
Six years later, Liam takes a trip back to Lakeport to visit his family, and to see HER.
His first love.
The girl who holds his heart.
The same girl who shattered it six years ago without looking back.
Liam is hell-bent on seeing Bea again after six years, but what he finds tears his heart in half. Bea Norwood is a shell of the girl he fell in love with. Underneath the baggy clothes, and pale skin, he knows she’s still in there somewhere, he just needs to find her.
Liam will stop at nothing to win his girl back, but sometimes, ignorance is bliss, and Liam isn’t prepared for Bea’s truth.
Well friends, it is time for the second part of our trip. I will put together another two or more reviews next week with pictures of our trips.
Have a good week and keep on reading!
