Title: Be My December
Author: Rachel Brookes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 27, 2014
I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl. December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago. The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again. The dream of a ‘happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him. The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming. I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life. I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no. The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers. A girl who can’t say no. A guy who craves redemption. A chance encounter? It all comes down to this. One question. One month. Be My December?
★ ★ ★MY REVIEW ★ ★ ★
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 whats left of her fragile self?
Along comes Ky Crawford , hes not looking for love until the girl in the red jacket comes bounding 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 torchered 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. This book totally took my breath away, it was so well written and take it from someone that has had this type of hurt in their life its 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 alot 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 #OrgyTime #ImHookedOnBrookes #AintNoGoingBack #StalkerForLife #ImGreedyIWantThemAll #5StarRating 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 stick up on wine and chocolate ;)
