***Release Day Blitz & Review***
Lovestrong by Nikki Groom
The Kingdom #3
Lovestrong is book #3 in the Kingdom series and the first book I have read by this author. I was lucky enough to be gifted a copy of this book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I let this book psych me out!!
Both myself and several other blogger friends all received ARCS of Lovestrong to read and review. I stick to a pretty tight schedule with my ARCS so I was one of the last to start this book.
My friends were pretty vocal about the book and how emotional it had made them and how much they had cried.
I avoid books that I know will make me cry like the plague.
That’s not to say that I don’t like books that make me feel so strongly that I cry! I just prefer not to read books that I know will upset me.
So yeah this book psyched me out lol!!
To the point that I didn’t pick up my kindle for TWO days!!!! This may not seem like a big deal to you but to me it’s akin to chocolate being banned or hot guy photos becoming illegal!!
Well I grew a pair of bollocks and read Lovestrong.
Did I cry???
No I didn’t, I teared up ALOT buy overall I just thought the book was lovely.
I haven’t read the previous 2 books in the series but I still got completely dragged into Spike and Lottie’s story.
This love story is sweet and heart-breaking yet I felt the love and the hope. This book is defiantly sad at times but I never doubted for a second that they wouldn’t end up living happily ever after!!
This couple were adorable and I couldn’t help but totally fall for them.
Lovestrong gets 4 stars from me.
They say that time heals all wounds.
But mine are set in so deeply, they’ve taken on a life of their own, lurking in the shadows at every turn and haunting my thoughts.
The girl I once was has been replaced by a stranger.
I don’t even know who I am anymore.
And I hide.
Pretending to be someone I’m not…
Until I meet Denham King.
My burst of color in an otherwise grey world.
And for the first time in my life, I find myself running towards someone instead of running away.
But fate can be cruel,
and I can’t escape my past.
“Stupid. Beautiful. Girl. How did you ever think you could be free?”
The last words I heard before the darkness took me and my dreams were shattered
I was on my way to having it all.
Friends, family and a future.
Everything I had wished for but never thought possible.
Denham King showed me just how good life could be. A life where love and happiness were within reach.
I should have known it would never last.
My past is a dark, damp cloud, that has seeped into my skin and left a cold promise.
A promise of hurt and pain.
A promise of a long, hard fight, where the stakes are high and the risks threaten lives.
When your world gets thrown in all directions, and your dreams for the future are torn from your grasp; how do you go on?
Can I fight the demons that haunt me?
Can love save me from fate’s cruel path?
