Self Destruct – KD Carrillo

Self Destruct Book Cover Self Destruct
Destroy #1
KD Carrillo
New Adult | Romantic Suspense

Becca Scott spent years burying her traumatic past under alcohol and boys.  With the help of her best friend she struggles to accept herself and let go of the pain.  She thought she had figured out how to stop the cycle of self-destruction she was on, until she met Aiden.

Aiden Ryan lives with constant self-hatred.  He allows those close to him to manipulate his life for their own gain, because he feels he deserves it.  He was resigned to marry a woman he doesn't love, until he met Becca.

Becca and Aiden try and let go of their painful pasts to be together, but can their pasts let go of them?

What a fast read this was not because it was short but because the story moved at such a brisk pace, no dawdling here. Right from the first chapter we know Becca is damaged she is on a path of self destruction as the title suggests. A chance encounter with Aidan makes Becca see how things can be different as he is willing to be there for her while others i feel though had concerns let Becca coast through life the way she was. Aidan is your book hero, but that is really good and sweet i felt he does not run as hot and cold as other book boyfriends do with the central female character. That is not to say Becca and Aidan do not have their struggles not only does Becca have to deal with her self destructive tendencies and what causes her to be that way but they have to deal with horrible supporting characters who aim to get in the way of their relationship at every turn. This book was enjoyable to read and the time flew by. I loved reading a romance story that felt like i knew the characters from the start as they just seemed to feel like i already had met them somewhere else before or had a passing acquaintance with them from times long ago. As this book is part of the Destroy #1 series i am interested to see where the series will go next.

By Way Of Accident – Laura Miller

By Way of Accident Book Cover By Way of Accident
Laura Miller
21st October 2014

They say in every guy’s life there’s a girl he’ll never forget and a summer where it all began. Well, for me, 1999 is that summer, and Brooke Sommerfield is that girl. But that was nearly nine years ago. And what they don’t tell ya is that you’ll blink, and both the summer and the girl will be gone.
I have no idea where Brooke ended up. She disappeared that same summer I met her. And kind of like when you move something on a wall after it’s been there for a long time and everything around it is faded, that’s how I feel about Brooke. She wasn’t there very long, but when she left, everything around her memory sort of dimmed. That is until a letter postmarked the year she left mysteriously resurfaces. And call me crazy—everyone else has—but I have to find her. I have to know what became of the green-and-gray-eyed girl who stole my last perfect summer. I have to know if she believes in second chances—because I do—even if they do come with good-byes.

This book was refreshingly different for one it is told from the central male characters POV, which for one is quite different to the other books i have read. It is a story of second chances and going after what you know in your heart you want even when you first experienced it from a young age. Though time passes River and hi feelings fail to falter for Brooke. The story is so sweet but not in a sickly way it is heart warming and makes you remeber that moment when you where younger and you met that person one summer and connected with them so much, that the experience that summer stays with you forever. This book was a nice comparison to others i have read recently due to the way it made me smile and the romantic nature of it,that is not to say the other books where not as good, it is just the feel of it was of a long lost summer of love and freedom you felt as a teenager of 13. I will be looking into more of Laura Millers work after reading this story. 🙂

blurb

RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 7, 2014

I let every wall I had built around my heart crumble to the ground for him. He told me to trust him, and I did. I never thought that trusting someone would be my biggest downfall.

I listened to his promises and thought I could believe him. I actually thought I could be the reason he would stay…

I can’t trust him.

She can’t trust me.

I hate him.

She hates me….

… I’m sure of it. Why shouldn’t she? I knocked her up and then walked out on her. It’s better this way. I’m fucked up, lost, and no good for her or our baby. The pain is unbearable without her, but she deserves better… At least that’s what I keep telling myself.

I still love her.

I loved him.

She loves me, and she knows it…

… But this time she doesn’t want me anymore, doesn’t need me anymore. Suddenly, it occurs to me that I may have actually lost her for the rest of my life.

I need her to love me.

I still love him…

With the broken promises of the past threatening to destroy us, I don’t think we can give in and move forward. Everything has changed between us; I have changed. There are risks I’m not willing to take anymore…

If anything, I’ve learned love is nothing without trust.

review

 

I am so in love with this novella series, I have read it from the beginning and at first i truly despised Corey, and you will all know why of you have read from the beginning. But i grew to love him in novella #3, but by the end of it i cannot believe the way he treated Mimi. I have to say Corey has redeemed himself to me as a reader now by how he was in this book. You can understand his nervousness and sort of see – notice i said sort of- why he did what he did. Mimi though grows stronger through this book, yes she is broken and fractured due to the actions of Corey, but come on she is Mimi F!£$%?g Jones so she will survive even if at times she cannot see how. The ending of this novella was so sweet and had a serious heart in the mouth moment where i was praying for the correct ending i felt it needed and J.L. Beck did me proud and i was very happy. This novella like all the other stories incorporates the other Bittersweet novella characters in it, in a way that does not overshadow the central characters story, but enhances it. And we see some progression in the story of Rex and Jenna, but also the introduction of Declan 🙂 i will not say anymore as i do not want to ruin it for you. But trust me when i say this is a novella series where you grow up with the characters and travel through their journey not as a bystander but as a part of the story like you are a part of their group. Another excellent read 🙂

 

 

excerpts

Inside and out. She is mine. Mine. I keep telling myself this over and over again.

I nip and suck at her earlobe until she comes back down to earth. Her head leans against mine as we stare into one another’s eyes.

“I want you. All of you. The fucked up, the good, the bad, the ugly. I’m far from perfect, Mimi. I’ve fucked up so much. I’ve made mistakes, but nothing was as big as walking away from you. So please… Just…” My fingers dig into her hips as if to hold her into place so she can never run away.

“Just forgive me. Please. Be mine. Let me love you. Let me be everything you need.” My voice is pleading. I don’t even care that I sound like a pussy whipped guy, just as long as I get her back.

She pushes me back, softly slipping off the counter and to her feet. “Once upon a time, you gave me this shit line of a story about how much you loved me, that if I gave myself to you, you would be there for me. Well, guess what? You weren’t there when I needed you the most. You walked away from me, so now this is me walking away from you.” A determination shows deep in her eyes, and I can’t help but feel my mouth open in awe at what she just said.

“Did you…?” I’m flabbergasted. I cannot even talk right now.

“Did I just what? Feed you a dose of your own medicine? Pretend to care? Let you get me off and walk away from you? Hmm… I think so.”

My head is spinning, and my heart is breaking. Rage and anger consume my thoughts. I really want to lash out at her, to hurt her the way she’s hurting me right now. Instead, I’m standing here with my pants around my ankles being thrown out like yesterday’s garbage.

“How could you? I fucking told you I love you!” I roar, pulling my pants up and buttoning them. My fists find the marble island as I pound the rage out into it.

“Welcome to my world, Corey. I told you I loved you. I told you we could do this, but you all but accused me of sleeping with someone else. For all you know, I am now,” she sneers. I lose it the second she says she could be sleeping with someone else. My anger is through the roof when I grab her by the arm. My hold is gentle, but there is a look of fear and shock in her eyes.

“Who is it then? Because I swear to God that if you’re lying to me, I will beat your ass until it’s as red as a cherry. Don’t fuck with me, Mimi!” My voice is sinister and oddly quiet which scares me more. There’s someone else; that explains it. I release her arm, my fingers going into my hair as I pace the room. I can’t… I can’t do this. I can’t picture life without her. I always thought she would be here. I thought that she was the one for me and I the one for her.

“Hurts to be on the receiving end of the pain, huh? Hurts to have your heart broken, to have your hopes and wishes ripped from you?” She’s trying her hardest to sound mean and hateful, but I know her better than that.

“I know you love me…” I say, shaking my head as if this is all a bad dream. “I know you want me, and I know that we can work this out. I see the way you look at me, the way you acted at the doctor’s office… I know the love you have for me is in you somewhere.”

“Used… to have for you,” she states as if she’s correcting me. My mind is spinning thoughts, assaulting me. Was that the last time I will ever have her, hold her against me, or hear her heart beat against my own?

“I can’t…” I plead on the verge of tears. I can’t lose her! Can’t.

“Lose me? You already have. Leave, get out, and go home! Sleep like you have been for the past couple weeks, and think about what it was that you could have had. This is the end, Corey.” I think I see the tears falling from her eyes, but I’m not sure because I feel the wetness on my own face.

Now I get it; I do. I know what it feels like to have been her, to have loved and lost. I slip my shoes on, grab my wallet and keys, and head out the front door.

Anger and hurt consume me. I stumble down the stairs, not even caring that I’m hitting the wall with my fists.

How could I be so dumb to think she would just take me back without a backward glance?

How could I so stupidly assume she would let me into her heart again after I broke it into a million and one pieces?

You’re just like your father….

The words linger in my mind even when I know they shouldn’t.

::::MEET KIRSTY MOSELEY::::
Kirsty Moseley has always been a passionate reader since she was a little girl, devouring books overnight, barely sleeping and paying for it at school the next day. Writing has come similarly to her and once she discovered Wattpad, she finally plucked up the courage to post one of her stories. Seven million reads later, she self-published her debut novel THE BOY WHO SNEAKS IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW, which later became one of 10 Finalists for the 2012 Goodreads’ Choice Awards, Best YA Fiction. Shocked and overwhelmed by the response, she published her second novel ALWAYS YOU a few months later.
If she had to sum herself up in one word, it would probably be ‘daydreamer’ – but unlike most of her school teachers, she doesn’t necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, she read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….
She lives in Norfolk, England with her husband and son.

Review
Before i even started the book i was close to tears, the words Kasey Millstead wrote before you read the book are so powerful and emotional you know beautiful. The beginning of the book takes you to a dark place no-one wants to experience but for some people life is not that kind and they have to weather the storm that some parents have to experience. Previously i have read Vengeance is Mine by Kasey Millstead and these two books could not be more different. Which shows me what a talented writer Kasey is.
My heart broke for Laura and her husband. But i could really see her need to escape the whispers and stares. The town she settles in sounds so lovely, not my usual cup of tea as i prefer hustle and bustle but you know it is going to be good for Laura. Saying that though anyone who gets to deal with Luke gets a good deal, he is caring, full of patience and stamina (lol) to give Laura what she needs at this point in her life. When things get tough for Laura and Luke yeah it gets dicey but i loved the ending and could feel myself getting all emotional again with the concluding chapters. I will most certainly be reading the other books in the Cowboy Down Under series and it was great that this book can be read as a standalone story, as that is how i read it having never read the other books in the series.Kasey Millstead you wrote another book i loved and my heart is so full of love for the way you told a very difficult story in a way that though sad at ties was also full of promise about what can happen.
Excerpt
With pain, comes blame. We blame the ones we love, we blame the one we lost, but most of all, we blame ourselves. It buries itself deep. So deep that on some days it feels like it’s in the marrow of your bones.

It destroys everything. The love you thought you had? Blame will chew it up and spit it out faster than you can blink.

Blame is like cancer; it eats away at all the good. It consumes you and if you are not careful, it will kill you.
