I’ve got a book here that is emotionally driven in a way a book hasn’t done for me since… I’m not even sure. Let me preface though that this is not a book for everyone. CL Matthews has a book here that is tragically and beautifully painful in all the ways I absolutely love.
It will make you face fears about love that you may not be ready to face and will have your emotions in a tangled mess. But it’s raw and it’s moving – it’s a book that is going to forever have a piece of my heart and my soul for as long as I know.
Jason and Loren met in high school. Loren always kept boys out of her life because she wanted to focus on school and graduating. But first she met Toby, Jason’s brother, and her forever best friend. Jason took her heart by storm and between the two of these boys she found protection and love that she never expected. That is until a marriage, two kids later and a whole lot of loss. Jason and Loren have been through hell and back and life isn’t done throwing curve balls at them.
You will find depths of heartache and pain like you’ll never imagine in this story, but it’s not meant to be frilly or sweet, it’s the haunting truths about loving deeply and losing everything that seemed to matter. How do you find yourself again and how do you love after the biggest betrayals in your life come true?
If this sounds like something you would like, then I HIGHLY recommend reading it – but like I said, this is not for just anyone. I’m a lifer for C.L. Matthews at this point and nothing will change my mind.
About C.L. Matthews
C.L. Matthews lives in lala-landia with her husband and invisible friends. She wants to riot the lack thereof authentic Mexican food in her state, but she’s an introvert at heart. She enjoys tacos, Red Bull, and warm water because she’s crazy. She’s an oddball, and realizes it’s been mentioned before, just go with it. Her joys in life consist of writing unconventional romances, making book covers, causing havoc to her reader’s hearts, and genre-hopping when she needs a change of scenery. She’s a special kind of weird and enjoys every moment of it.
