Be my December, by Rachel Brookes

I was given this Arc in exchange for my honest opinion...

That moment in life when you read a book and never expect it to be half the book it actually was, this book grabs hold of you heart and begs you to hold on for dear life, a book about not just one person's life being changed but the lives of the ones that love the person that was hurt.

This book delves into raw emotions Eden had something happen to her that no one should have to go through in life and it has left her emotionally crippled not being able to have a normal life ...over the years she has built up walls and lets very few people know the real her, she hides behind a fake persona. She promises herself that she will never step foot into the place where her nightmares came from until by pure chance she had the opportunity to go back and do her dream job for 5 weeks is she prepared to enter the minefield that is her past or will everything come flooding back and totally destroy what’s left of her fragile self?

Along comes Ky Crawford , he’s not looking for love until the girl in the red jacket comes barreling into his life, his whole world shifts suddenly he wants to be anything she needs him to be a protector, a friend, a lover .... You can tell he really cares for her, you can also tell he is a tortured soul and something is weighing heavy on him. There are secrets that need to come out in order for people to move on with their lives and learn to live again.

My Review : 
This book totally took my breath away, it was so well written and taken from someone that has had this type of hurt in their life, it’s portrayed perfectly. I understand some people might find this book a taboo subject, but it was written tastefully and I would totally recommend reading it.
I love meeting all the characters in this book some old and quite a few new, prepare yourself for having a lot more book boyfriends. 

 I'm totally hooked on all of them.... and although I can't pick sides team Tate & Sav or Team Ky & Eden, I have decided that there is plenty of my heart to go around

If I could give this book more than 5★★★★★ I totally would, I believe it deserves every star it gets from me. Rachel created a masterpiece, a book I could totally read then re-read.
I will tell you though, prepare to have plenty of tissues used and stock up on wine and chocolate. ~ Vicci

About Rachel Brookes : 

Rachel Brookes is from a coastal town on the east coast of Australia where beaches, kangaroos and surfers roam free. She writes angst ridden love stories with a pinch of craziness, a dash of drama, a cup of romance, a spoonful of sexiness and the main ingredient hot guys. Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can't remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that's because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop and they are constantly writing together. When she does step away from her laptop she can be found taking too many photos, making scrumptious cocktails, laughing at Adam Sandler movies and spending her time with her amazing family and friends.
