Or will she lose herself in a man whose only promise is that a lady always comes first?

 

Review
 Oh my goodness! What a book! River James has stolen my heart. I didn’t expect to feel that way about him because of his extremely cocky attitude. Boy did my opinion change! River is a very troubled young man who has endured some horrific and traumatic events in his past. He is a very much “live in the moment” kind of guy, until he meets Keanna. Keanna is very independent and strong. She has some things from her past that push her to be this way. When these two meet, it is explosive.

This is one very emotional and troubling ride from the first page to the last. River has a lot of things to get over from his past, a lot of acceptance to achieve and a lot of forgiveness to give. His growth throughout the story is amazing. This is a book of hope for anyone what has faced horrific events and turned to drugs or anything else to numb the pain. Keanna becomes a beacon of hope for River in the face of a life he has created in order to survive. Can these two survive the rocky road River faces? To find out, grab this one now!

This series is great and I love all of the STD guys but River has become my favorite. The author does an excellent job of telling a difficult story. Be prepared to feel a full array of emotions in this book. You will laugh but you will also need the tissue box to be close by! Oh, and I don’t think I have mentioned that River is super hot! Five huge stars for this one.

(This is a book for the over 18 group due to sensitive subjects, sexual situations and language.)

Genre: New Adult Romance
Synopsis


Seven breaths left in her chest, yet I looked back at him. He wasn’t meant to be there on the darkest night of my life, but the mysterious Alex Law continued to make a habit of showing up when I least expected him. With one look in his eyes, everything I’d ever been before him drifted away, and everything I was about to become revolved around him.

Grief threatened to ruin me no matter how hard I fought, and Alex had demons of his own to deal with, yet we found a comfort in each other’s pain. We found ourselves alone, two people becoming one. Just us. Natalie and Alex. Natexus. As long as we had each other, we thought we could make it through anything.

We didn’t know there were things out there waiting to destroy us: people we couldn’t escape, fates we couldn’t outrun and regrets we couldn’t avoid. Not all love stories go the same way, and ours was about to take a turn neither one of us could have foreseen. All I could do was stand by and watch as my world fell apart for a second time.

I knew there had been life before Alex Law.

I just had to figure out if there was life after him…

That beautiful, tragic first love of mine.

~~ Natalie Vincent.           


                                                                               

Author Bio

Victoria L James is a teenage girl stuck in a thirty-something year-olds body. Living somewhere ‘oop north’ in England, she has had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, which she credits to her grandmother and her love of reading anything that was on sale and cheap from the local market stall. Never once did she think she would release a novel, though. At best, she thought her love of language and her ability to create stories in her mind would provide her with a ‘get out of jail free’ card whenever she messed up and her parents were mad at her during her teenage years… and when even that didn’t work out, she thought she was pretty much done for.

When an opportunity presented itself for her to take a back seat from paid working life for a few years, she knew straight away that she had to try and write about a few of these worlds she’d come up with along the way, and quieten all the voices in her head without racking up a heavy psychiatry bill for the pleasure.

Wearing her heart on her sleeve and trying to lighten her friends’ and family’s lives with naff, and more often than not, badly timed, nineties jokes, she has yet to learn the art of knowing when to shut up. Which is another reason writing became a passion of hers. With pen and paper, there are no limits.

A firm believer in never quitting, with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky, she hopes that one day she writes a story that will inspire at least one person out there to keep on going if they’re struggling. Other than that, she’s just a regular old converse wearing, corona sipping, English version of Chandler Bing, who loves and adores her family more than life itself. Oh, and she also has two cats. Every writer has to mention their cats, right?
