Love Unspoken 
 
by Lisa De Jong
 
 (A Flawed Love Series, Book 2)
 
 
 Designer: Mae I Design (Regina Wamba)
 
Blurb
 
I lent my heart to the bad boy, and he did exactly what I expected he would. He broke it.

And the guy I should have been with—he’s still here.
 He tries to take my mind off everything I’ve lost while showing me what I could have.
 I’m ready for a new start, to fall in love again … to do what I should have done in the first place.

Everything seems perfect.

Then the past comes walking back in. 
I thought I was over him, but one look and I know that’s not true. 
We went through too much together for those feelings to completely fade away.

When my past and present collide, how am I supposed to choose?
 They both love me, and I love them.

A heart will be broken … and it could be mine.

Release Blitz; The Air He Breathes


 RELEASE BLITZ
 
Title: The Air He Breathes 

Series: Romance Elements #1 

Author: Brittainy C. Cherry 

Genre: Romance 

Release Date: September 25, 2015


I was warned about Tristan Cole.

“Stay away from him,” people said.
“He’s cruel.”
“He’s cold.”
“He’s damaged.”

It’s easy to judge a man because of his past.

To look at Tristan and see a monster.

But I couldn’t do that.

I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.

We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else.

Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.

Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.



  Review
Oh. My. God. 
This book is so full of emotion, this book is so full of healing, this book is so full of love. 

I have read two previous Brittainy C. Cherry books, I loved them both, but I think that this one might take the top spot as my favorite one. 

Elizabeth and Tristan are two broken people. They are two loving people. They are two people who need healing. They are two people who come together when they need it the most. 
I'm not going to go into detail with this book. I just can't there is so much that needs to be experienced. 
I cried while reading this book, this book starts off emotional and stays that way. I figured I was going to cry, but this was way more emotions than I expected. 
I haven't had a good ugly cry in a while and I figured it was time when I read this book. I was right, as much as this book made my heart race and my eyes leak it felt good to have that deep connection with a book. 
And did my heart race. This is not a YA novel. This is pure NA and this book is full of fun sexy times. 
If you're looking for a book full of emotion both good and sometimes bad, then I recommend this book. Brittainy has a way with words, she knows how to make your heart race, with anxiousness, with excitement, with emotion. 

*Quote- "No soulmate leaves the world alone; they always take a piece of their other half along with them." 
"The hardest part about losing someone you love is the fact that you also lose yourself." -Elizabeth
"We were living in our own worlds of little memories, and even though we were both separate, somehow we managed to feel for one another. Lonely often recognized lonely. And today, for the first time, I began to see the man behind the beard." -Elizabeth

"How did two people so broken find each other's shattered pieces?" -Tristan

~ Irrevocable (Skye Callahan):

I remembered!

Descending into their darkness and making it my own became my only escape.

Book Talk Review; Outlander

 One of the best books I have read in a long time. My newest obsession



 The year is 1945. 

 Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. 
 Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

 Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. 

 For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives. 

This book is very different from an others I have read. It spans across lifetimes. Through love and time Diana Gabaldon weaves a story that is unforgettable. 

 Claire Randall and her husband were both dispatched to the war. Both of them forced to serve their country in the only way they can. Claire as a combat nurse and Frank as an Intelligence officer. 

 After a long separation the two meet again, hoping to find each other again. In the Scottish Highlands they find themselves reconnecting as they explore the countryside. 

 Frank, ever the scholar is researching the movements of one of his ancestors. Admit the documents there is superstition, the Highlands being a place of great mystery and magic. 

 It is here that Claire finds herself thrust into a dangerous world. Suddenly finding herself in the year of Our Lord 1743, she must survive the best she can. 

 Her own time is two hundred years in the future, how will she manage? 

 She meets a band of cattle raiders, part of Clan Mackenzie, they manage to rescue her from dishonorable English hands.  

 It is here that she meets James Fraser. 

 Claire and Jamie, two different people, barely even friends, suddenly thrust together in adventure, danger, and passion. 

 I have read a few historical romances before this book. And I really enjoyed them. 

 This is not just a historical romance, this has superstition, a bit of magic, it is sci-fi, drama, these books have so much in them that it might seem overwhelming, but not really. 

 Yes, this book is long and has a lot of information, but it needs to be long, you need all of the detail in this book. This book has a lot of history in it, it is a fictional story mixed with history and so I can forgive the page numbers. 

 This has become my obsession. It is amazing. The story is engaging, the characters are so well done. Diana has an amazing writing style. 

 There is so much I want to say about this book but I can't. It is so hard to explain this book in a few simple sentences. 

 There is so much that goes on in this book, there are multiple story-lines that revolve around the main one. 

 It is hard for a book this complex to have enough in it for the reader to stay engaged. Even when the book gets slow I felt that this book wasn't dull. 

 Everything had a place and a reason. Don't let the number of pages or the word count discourage you. Take a chance on this series. 

 There is a T.V. Series on this series. The first season is based on the first book. I highly suggest reading the book before watching the show. 

 I am aching for the second season of the show, and cannot wait for it to come on. I read about 75% of the book before I started watching the show. When I came to the point in the show that I did not read yet I stopped watching. So that I was watching and reading simotaniously.   

 *Quote- "Ye are Blood of my Blood, and Bone of my Bone. I give ye my Body, that we Two might be One. I give ye my Spirit, 'til our Life shall be Done" -Jamie (Translating Gaelic *Swoon*)

            "Don't be afraid, there's two of us now." -Jamie 

            "Then let amorous kisses dwell On our lips, begin and tell A thousand and a Hundred score A Hundred, and a Thousand more."  -Quoted from "Out of Catullus" by Richard Crashaw

            "You're tearin' my guts out, Claire." -Jamie

            "There comes a turning pint in intense physical struggle where one abandons oneself to a profligate usage of strength and bodily resource, ignoring the costs until the struggle is over. Women find this point in childbirth; men in battle. 
             Past that certain point, you lose all fear of pain or injury. Life becomes very simple at that point; you will do what you are trying to do, or die in the attempt, and it does not really matter much which." -Claire

But that’s all about to change, thanks to two entirely different women who awaken my deepest desires.

Who will I choose?

I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. 
And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?

My tale isn’t for the fainthearted. 
If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected.
 But don’t say I didn’t warn you…

She loves writing about hot alphas and doesn’t shy away from turning up the heat with scorching hot sex scenes.
