“fall into me, Carly Jo, I'll catch you, and hold onto you forever.”
Where the hell did this woman come from and how is this her debut novel !!
That was friggin amazing, I'm floored, this is me damn near speechless and that never happens but, Damn!! This is going to be a pretty short review because this book was one giant ass bundle of secrets, there really isn't much I can say about anything without giving something away and well, you are just gonna have to suffer through the same relentless barrage of shocks I did-it's only fair ;)
I catch a glimpse of a picture frame. The photo is of my daddy, me and Colton at my graduation taken just a few weeks ago. My two favorite guys, the loves of my life. How did I lose both of them in just a matter of hours?
Carly Jo's life took an unexpected turn when the love of her life shattered her heart to a million pieces. Scared, broken and in a situation she doesn't know how to handle, she goes to the only other man in her life who has always been there for her-her Daddy, only he turns his back on her leaving her truly alone. With no where to turn and devastated beyond repair she takes off into the night and never looks back.
Seven years later, she may have never gotten over Colton, but she's made a pretty good life for herself. She has never set foot back home and never wants to lay eyes on the man who destroyed her ever again, but when she gets word that her daddy has fallen ill, she heads back to the place she swore she would never return.
Seeing Colton again is like a kick to the gut and she knows she will never love another, but she will never get over his betrayal. As long as she can avoid him, she should be just fine....she wasn't planning on Colton deciding that plan didn't work for him. He wants Carly back and will stop at nothing to get her.
Carly Jo is so damn cute, thinkin' I will give up my pursuit of her heart, so easily. I laugh at the fact. She obviously don't remember I'm Colton frickin' Weston I get what I want when I want it and how I want it. I don't take no for an answer. But the little show she put on, rejectin' me, was real cute.
And that's all I can really get into. From this point on, secrets are revealed left and right, hearts will break over and over again, tears will be shed, lives will be lost, it was non-stop. My head was spinning, fingers clenched, scarred excited nervous turned on, seriously- Silla Webb had me fit to be tied, I was a hott mess and I loved every damn minute of it. So many characters to love, so many questions, and I still need more- especially after that friggin ending! Epic debut, cannot wait for more and I see some serious facebook stalking in my near future.
“I've waited too damn long to have you back in my arms again, baby. No matter what the hell we have been through, we can only go on, together. I'd give my last breath, just to hold you in my arms.”
Silla Webb is a Kentucky native, raised in the heart of the coal fields. A coal truck driver's daughter, and a railroader's wife, the coal fields own a special place in her heart.
She is a work at home, Super Momma to three rowdy boys, who keep her on her feet from daylight to sunset. As a pass time from her everyday life, Silla started a blog-Momma's Secret Book Obsession, for reviewing romance novels. From there, she realized that not only did she have a natural love for reading and reviewing, but she found that lost love of writing that she once had as a young girl.
When she isn't conquering the world as a wife, momma and Super Woman, Silla loves to lay on the front porch swing and read while sipping sweet tea, just passin' the day away.
