Seared on My Soulby Cole Gibsen
Publication Date: June 27, 2016
Genres: New Adult, Entangled Embrace, Contemporary Romance
Synopsis: She’s so young, so full of life…I couldn’t let her die…
Even if she made the world’s worst coffee.
Emily Garret never asked to be rescued, let alone by a walking JCrew ad whose idea of fun is probably managing his stock portfolio and watching the nightly news. Then again, she never thought she would wind upside-down in a ditch after a night having a little too much fun.
Reece Montgomery never planned on being anyone’s hero, especially the foul-mouthed, bleach-blonde barista from the local coffee shop. He thinks there’s more to Emily than her tattoos, and lip ring, but getting close means letting her into his past and meeting his ghosts.
And he’s not sure she’s ready for that battlefield.
ABOUT COLE GIBSEN
At seventeen Cole found herself homeless with only a beat-up Volkswagen Jetta and a bag of Goodwill clothing to her name. The only things that got her through the nights she spent parked in truck stops and cornfields were the stacks of books she checked out from the library along with her trusty flashlight. Because of the reprieve these books gave her from her troubles, Cole vowed to become a writer so she could provide the same escape to readers who needed a break the reality of their own lives.
|There is nothing I love more than a good story about broken people who somehow seem to put themselves back together again when they meet the other half who completes them.|
Emily Garret is a feisty chick who is broken and not looking to be fixed. She knows she has issues, she sleeps with strange men for comfort. She drinks.... a lot and has little regard for what she is doing. After a bad car accident leaves her an inch away from death, this could be the wake up call she needs to get her life together.
Reece Montgomery saved Emily's life. He just happened to be at the right place at the right time. After serving his county, he is now left with a permanent reminder of war, both mentally and physically. He is not looking to be a hero, he just wants to get through the day.
Another chance encounter put Emily and Reece on a date with faith, that leads them to a relationship neither one knew they needed. Both are broken and bruised and seem to need each other more than they could have ever realized.
I thought this was a beautiful story about healing and love. Neither Emily and Reece knew that the other person could be the one for them. They are complete opposites on the outside, but on the inside they are a perfect fit.
I loved this story. Didn't want to put it down from the second I picked it up! I can't wait to read more from Cole Gibsen !!
