Four years later, Guy is consumed by the challenges of being a single father, still struggling with the aftermath that derailed his life and left his son with special needs. He doesn't realize his world went dark the same day his wife's did, until Jules, his son's new nurse, shows him the light.
**I received an ARC for an honest review.**
This book was so amazing!!!
I loved every second of this book even the parts that gutted me. Talk about to very broken people who needed each other in order to live again. Guy and Jules stole my heart and so did Max and Finn...especially Max and Finn.
There were so many parts in this book where I would hold my breath waiting for what would come next and hoping that I wouldn't be totally ripped to shreds. So many times I thought I knew what would come next, but was always shocked on how things would play out and I loved it every word of it. Nothing about this story is predictable and every part of it kept me sucked in waiting to see what would come next for Guy and Jules.
I loved that the beginning of this book shows the past for both Guy and Jules. It helps to see how each of their character grew and became the people that they are when they both meet. I hated that Guy was such a dick, but I also loved that no matter how hard he tried ignore Jules he couldn't. I also loved Jules loving nature and natural ability that she had when she was with Finn. I also liked that she didn't let Guy's crappy treatment towards her dictate how she would be with Finn.
I don't want to give a bunch away because that is not my style, but I really really loved all of these characters. Talk about a book you fall in love with, Abruption is definitely a book to read and fall in love with. The characters and the story line are well written and easy to connect with throughout the entire book. There are also some really shocking moments that will make you want to rip someones heart out and I love Jules and how she reacts to it. I love her protective side over her cubs and I loved that Guy supported her through it and didn't once turn on her.
This is a MUST, but be warned you will UGLY CRY you tail off!
About the Authors
Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us!
We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.
It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.
So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).
When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school.
Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?
Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.
So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
