town behind with no intentions of ever returning My dreams were within my grasp Or so I thought Luck That s what was on his side Brayden Stephens was on top of the world and the biggest prick of all At least that s how I remember him Then he lost it all His vices took over and now he s a washed up has been with a cocky smirk and arrogant attitudeValued That was how he made me feel One night changed everything for us In an instant I was lost to his touch, his voice Everything about him captivated meAgainst my better judgment, I let him in I let him see the real me Since he d walked into

don t know how to write this review to make sure it does this fabulous book justice I was absolutely blown away from this book The storyline was filled with heart and emotion and I honestly thought it gave an accurate portrayal of what a person struggles with in life when it comes to abuse, bullying and alcoholism.This is the first book I have read by Tiffany Aleman, and I will say it won t be my last The amount of emotions that Tiffany makes a reader feel while reading this story was fantastic My heart broke for these characters, but it also smiled and laughed with them It also learned to love these characters as their flaws were revealed I know that this is only the beginning of Brayden and Karmen s journey and I am truly hoping that they do get their HEA I feel it is going to be a tough and long road for them to get there.Now I do feel it is necessary to warn readers that this book does end on a cliffhanger and touches on some subjects that could be triggers for some people As for the cliffhanger, it isn t a nail biter or a pull your hair out, it is the perfect ending to the start of Brayden and Karmen s journey As a couple they aren t in a great place at the end of the story, but they are in a healing place I feel that this book ended right where it should have As for the tough subject she covers, it is the topic of Bullying, abuse and alcoholism I want to say the Bullying is the prime focus of the story, because it was the focus of Brayden and Karmen s past history, but the abuse and alcoholism do play a big part in Brayden s backstory and why he is the way he is I thought Tiffany did a wonderful job in showing the daily struggles both Karmen and Brayden had to go through.I thought Karmen and Brayden were both great characters Full of emotion and heart I truly just wanted to jump into the book and give both of them hugs I do hope that in the second book we get to see Brayden open upto Karmen It will be nice to see him let her in I am interested to see how Karmen weathers in the next book To see how she overcomes this set back from book 1.As for the secondary characters, I thought they were all wonderful and just as important to this story as the main characters Drew, Chelsea and Tammy were all amazing supports for both Karmen and Brayden I was extremely happy to see Drew transform into a better person compared to his High School days and to ask for forgiveness from Karmen for all the wrong he did back then It made itbelievable that him and Karmen could end up being friends now later in life.I would 100% recommend the heartfelt and emotional journey to everyone If you aren t a fan of cliffhangers I don t think this is one you have to wait for book two before starting this one, just be aware that at the end there isto come Follow

want to play and corrupt and worship you in the most sinful of waysThis is the first book of a duet by Tiffany Aleman and all I can say is what a start To say that I loved this book would be an understatement, I loved it hard This book was real, it wasn t always pretty but it had so many messages littered throughout This book was full of hope and forgiveness and even if you are in the direst of circumstances you always have friends to help you, pick you up and be that rock that you desperately need.This book touches on some tough subjects mainly bullying and alcoholism Having been bullied for most of my school life and having an alcoholic parent for quite a while I could relate to so much in this book, maybe that is why it really pulled at my heart strings, but for me personally this hit home and I found myself in tears so many timesYou were like a cancer that wouldn t go awayBullying is a term often bandied about at the drop of at hat, but once you have been a victim of bullying you really understand its true meaning and Karmen s life really mirrored my own in some respects While I was bullied by all girls, Karmen had boys and girls against her and they truly made her life hell, to the point that she had on several occasions thought of ending her life They were mean and cruel and totally humiliated her on so many occasions, but Karmen was strong, she battled through and made it out relatively unscathed Karmen was an easy target, she was poor, her clothes didn t fit, she wore flip flops in winter and all because her parents were addicts in one form or another Underneath those ill fitting clothes and ill fitting shoes was a beautiful girl on the inside and out, her resilience was astounding She walked with her eyes to the ground and tried to keep out of their way but these kids were relentless If only they took their time to see the person underneathIt s nothing personal It s simple really You exist That s enough of a reason for usBrayden was one of the said bullies, but in his defence he was a little different from the others He watched rather than participated to save face, to stay in with his friends Brayden was Mr Popular, he was destined for the NHL, was born into wealth and privilege but his home life was far from perfect He had a Dad that belittled him at every turn and who was quite fond of using his fists too His mother was always at the end of a bottle of wine and did very little parenting He was alone too, inways than oneI m a man tainted by my own vices Vices that run so deep, I m not sure I ll ever be freeThis happened years ago, now, Karmen runs a radio station, imagine her surprise when Brayden comes in looking for a job A serious injury has finished his NHL career and after a year destroying his life, he now has his tail between his legs He is just as surprised as she is, but can these two really put the past behind them Old feelings come to a head and out into the open, but the past can never be forgotten, but is forgiveness a possibility This book was extremely emotional in places Something as innocuous as alcohol can have such devastating repercussions if it is abused and being on the wrong end of that is not pretty Tiffany Aleman captured this perfectly and it did bring back some awful memories but this also meant that I could empathise and sympathise with these characters so much It always went a long ways to show how parenting can really affect a child forward Whether it be their self worth or emotional hang ups, both can be devastating in their own right, forever impacting their children s relationships going forwardDreams don t come true if you don t chase after themThese two have a lot to work through, forgiveness may be given but the person receiving needs to accept it and sometimes the damage is irrevocable I can t wait for the next instalment I love these two with a passion and even though their beginning was so awful, I can seriously see them being so right for each other Maybe destiny had a sick way of bringing them together but what doesn t kill you makes you stronger and these two were emotionally and physically perfect for each otherYou are a survivor of your past and a fighter for your futureFor an emotional read, this is perfect It has everything, friendship, love, angst, hate and a great dose of wit You will be laughing one minute and crying the next but at the end you know that you have read an amazing book This is by far Tiffany Aleman s best book to date and as I said, I cannot wait for the finale.www.theromanceocver.com As an avid seeker of happily
