Pre-Order / Release Blitz – Love, Me : A Pleasant Valley Novel By Anna Brooks

Title: Love Me
Series: A Pleasant Valley Novel
Author: Anna Brooks
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2017


Vaughn Morris survives on denial and hope. He spends his days permanently marking other’s skin and his nights trying to forget the scars embedded in his soul. No longer the defenseless teenager he used to be, he returns to his home town, never expecting to fall for a woman who is just as complicated as he is.
Rayne Garner hasn’t truly lived in years. When she was too young to know better, she made a promise to a man who didn’t deserve her loyalty. Nobody has made her question that decision, until Vaughn—a man whose pain is well hidden beneath his cocky exterior and dark, mysterious eyes. But in order to heal him, Rayne must face the brutal reality she’s been trying to deny.
A friendship they didn’t need turns into a love neither thought they wanted. Rayne and Vaughn not only have to fight for each other, they must survive threats from a past they’re both trying to overcome.





My Review –

4.5 Bird of Paradise Stars!! 

 

 

 

 

*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions*

 

 

Thank you so very much Enticing Journey Book Promotions!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂

 

Having read Ms.Brooks’ work before I was so excited to jump into this novel!! I really enjoyed this emotional tale!! Oh how this story touched my heart. I couldn’t help but cry during certain parts. Everything became so realistic for me from the pain to the love. I felt like my emotions were all over the place like a rollercoaster ride. I loved the fact that it was told in Dual POVs because I believe I connected with both of the main characters on a deeper level that way. At one point while reading it hurt to breathe, it just hit me that hard but in a great way.

 

Ms.Brooks truly took my breath away with this novel. She showed that even though you can have the darkest of times in your life you should never ever give up hope. Ms.Brooks showed what it means to love, to lose, and to learn what it means to live again. Vaughn Morris and Rayne Garner’s story is one I’ll never forget. In some ways it’s lifted things off of my very own shoulders I didn’t know I was carrying. Thank you Ms.Brooks for showing me it’s okay to hurt but it’s even more okay to find the peace of mind to live. I absolutely hated what the separate hells that the hero and heroine went through. It tore me apart. I’m so looking forward to reading what she comes up with next!! 🙂

 

If you haven’t already One-Clicked, What are you waiting for?!?! Buy It Today!! Be prepared to shed some tears so have tissue’s near and get a better appreciation for all the things no matter how big or small they may be. Trust me it’s worth every tear. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did my fellow book lovers!! Remember, Let Love in. 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂





“Vaughn, look . . .” I whisper.


“I am. And I really like what I see.”

 


I knew earlier that he was trouble, but now, with his hands on me and the thoughts I’m having that I know I shouldn’t be . . . I’ve gotta squash this before anything starts. “Listen, I—”

 


His hair moves freely as he shakes his head. “Don’t blow me off. I know that’s what you’re about to do. Don’t do it.”

 


“I’m a lesbian,” I blurt out. “I’m flattered, but sorry.” I’ve rehearsed the line so many times I almost believe it myself. Wish I believed it sometimes.


He laughs. It catches me so off guard that I find my jaw open, and I’m staring at the way laughter changes the hard angles of his face to soft ones that make him less intimidating and more beautiful.

 


“Why are you laughing? You’re the one in a gay bar.”


“I’m here for Kenny and Brad. I’m not gay, darlin’, and if you think that, then I gotta step up my game.”

 


“I’m not interested in playing games.” I cross my arms defensively. “Besides, I didn’t say that you were gay. I said I was a lesbian.”


He laughs again. Once he catches his breath, he takes another shot. “The way you were moving your hips. Grindin’ on my cock . . . Damn, baby. Got me hard as a fuckin’ rock. You’re not a lesbian.”

 


“Yes. I am.” This is what I tell people when I get hit on, because the truth is too hard to bear. Sometimes, I just don’t want the reminder that I won’t have anything else.

 


“You’re not a lesbian.”

 


“Fine.” I sigh. “Caught me. I’m asexual.”

 


He huffs. “No, you’re not.”

 


“Am too.”

 


“Are not.”


“Am too!” I screech.


He extends his arm and runs a finger around my knee and up to the hem of my very short dress. I try to pretend he doesn’t affect me, but my breath hitches in my throat, and my cheeks heat up. When he traces just beneath the hemline, I shiver. Dammit. Asshole.


“No. You’re not.” He smirks and squeezes my thigh before letting go.

 








Anna began writing when she thought the world would want to hear her sick lyrics through song. Since then, she’s realized her childhood dream wasn’t so far-fetched, just misguided. Now she writes romance with real emotions and happy endings. If Anna isn’t writing or reading, she can be found by a space heater painting her nails and drinking a ridiculous amount of Diet Dr Pepper. She also likes to hang out with her husband and two boys. If it wasn’t for them, she wouldn’t ever leave the house. Anna was born in Wisconsin but now lives in the Evergreen State.
