Love Interrupted Cover Reveal


Logan Brookes loved Andrew Eastin for as long as she could remember, and he had always loved her. After losing her parents, and avoiding obstacles, there was no way she could face losing him too. She loved him enough to walk away for both of their sakes. She left him before he could leave her.

When tragedy strikes again, Logan is on a downward spiral. Andrew knows she needs protection from herself, and he needs to love her through it, even if only from a distance.

Life has different plans, and brings more emotions and feelings than imaginable. You can't have a love like theirs and love from a distance.

When you find love and seem to have it all, what happens when once again it's all interrupted?

When all is lost, and nothing seems to go according to plan, all you can do is move forward...without a plan.

A book of tragedy, loss, self denial.

A book of redemption, self preservation and love.

My Review

*I received a copy of this book for an honest review*

Hot Mess is an emotional roller coaster for sure! Along with being an emotional romance, it was very REAL. No fluff here. The story deals with a serious subject matter of a certain medical condition. Sorry, you will have to read the book to find out what kind of condition.

It was very interesting with how the author wrote the story with two points of view. It was able to show both sides: living with the medical condition along with how it affects the people in the patient’s life. It was amazing how much research the author did for this story. She was able to make it very informational without making the reader form a certain opinion. It left it to where the reader could form their own opinion.

I found it very refreshing that the story wasn’t filled with a lot of sex. Of course, it was filled with sexual tension, but I liked it. That was one of the reasons why the story felt so real.

At 46% in the book, I was on the edge of my seat with the heart pounding suspense. Rachel’s secret is finally out, but certainly not the way Rachel would have liked it to come out. You could definitely say that the secret came out in less than favorable circumstances.
Just when I thought that the roller coaster ride was going to level out to allow my heart to heal, I was plunged down the track again. The story is completely unpredictable, and I loved that. I always enjoy not being able to predict what will happen next.

My favorite quote from the story was, “I’m a firefighter. I live for danger.” That one simple quote held so much promise and hope for the story! I don’t want to put any spoilers in this review so you will just have to read the story to know just how sweet that quote is.

The only thing that I didn’t enjoy about the story was the ending. Yes, the story wraps up in the end, but just not as completely as I would have liked. It felt like a small part was missing. Maybe the author left it that way for the reader to use their imagination and fill in the blanks. The story doesn’t have a cliff hanger, which is a huge plus for me.

Take Me Out Blog Stop


Charlotte Windsor is moody, stubborn, and most of all maddening. The single college junior vows to take a summer off from dating; that is until she meets Bentley Young.
Bentley is the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Growing up with an absent mother, he learns early on in life to never depend on a woman-- that is until he lays eyes on Charlotte.
One chance meeting changes their future forever. But, can this unconventional couple survive the never ending trials their relationship will endure?

My Review

Right off the bat (he he he), I was sucked in. Absolutely fell in love with Bentley. He is so sweet! This book already had my interest when I seen it had a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Who can resist a damaged and tattooed bad boy? I know I can’t. Bentley is so sexy and majorly sweet.
I liked Charlie most of the time. Sometimes I really wanted to reach through the book and slap some sense into her. She eventually saw things my way. LOL! I couldn’t really blame her since I was getting her side and Bentley’s side of the story back to back. Having both points of views was one of my favorite things about this book. I was able to connect with the characters.
Take Me Out is definitely an intense and emotional story. I couldn’t put it down. This book had me huffing and puffing with some yelling and screaming at the characters. I was also spotted giving my Kindle some weird looks from time to time. What can I say? The twists and turns were good and completely a shock.
Amazing debut story! I can’t wait for more.
