Release Day, Review & Giveaway ~~ Sacrifice by Adriana Locke
But when tragedy strikes a second time, Crew just might be my only hope.
My life changed forever the night my brother died.
I was left with a guilty conscience, a pile of mistakes, and little else. I take care of JULIA GENTRY, my brother’s widow and the love of my life, and their daughter. I know she doesn’t want my help, but she gets it anyway. I owe her that. When another disaster hits, I’m given the opportunity to make things right. I’m taking it. I’m willing to sacrifice it all.
5 stars doesn’t even cover it……
Sacrifice by Adriana Locke is one of the best books of 2015!! It deserves infinite stars. It is brilliant! Flawless! Compelling! I was a blubbering mess throughout, but I loved every minute of it. It grabbed me from page one and never let go. I was hanging on every word. I am beyond impressed and proud of Adriana. I was a huge fan of hers before. I loved her alpha male and southern gentleman… but Crew and Sacrifice propel her into a whole new stratosphere. Girlfriend is on a whole new level. She poured her heart and soul into this book and it paid off. If you are looking for something that is REAL, gritty, honest and raw, read it! If you are looking for fluff move on….
This story touched me on so many levels. I was devastated, consumed and overwhelmed. I felt every emotion humanly possible and it left me speechless. This isn’t just a book you simply read. You live it, breathe it and it becomes a part of you. If you think this is just a love story about a fighter, think again…….
Definition of Hero: 1. a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
A hero is someone who provides, protects and cherishes the people he loves. He will do whatever it takes to keep them safe. Some people are born heros, others are made…. Crew Gentry started off as a selfish boy and ended up a selfless man. He comes from nothing. He has a past filled with mistakes, regret and heartache. He has been fighting most of his life, but now he’s fighting for something REAL. He had to learn the hard way, some things are worth sacrificing for. He became the definition of a HERO. I FLOVE HIM!!! His name will forever be tattooed on my heart. You can not help but fall madly and deeply!
“She’s a fighter. Take fucking notes.” – Crew
Julia Gentry has never had it easy and life just keeps dumping on her. Not many people could endure what she has gone through, but she just keeps going. She is a survivor. Strong and proud. She will do whatever it takes to care for her daughter, Everleigh. She is also a hero in my eyes! I adored her just as much as Crew. Every character in this book brought something authentic to it… I loved Everleigh. She is such a beautiful and uplifting presence. Crew’s cousin Will was the comic relief. He had me laughing in between the tears. I would love to hear more about him. Hint hint 😉
The last 20 minutes of this book were my undoing. I could not breathe nor blink… I was on the verge of a breakdown with the tears flowing. Good thing I wasn’t home, I would have been sobbing reaching for the bottle!! All the tears I cried were sooooo worth it. Thank you Adriana for giving us Crew & Julia’s story. Please, please give us more!! Enjoy getting sCREWed…..
I received an arc of Sacrifice by Adriana Locke for Blushing babes are Up All Night Book Blog.
Her smile disappears and she tugs her sweatshirt nervously. “I didn’t know it was.”
“How can you possibly not know?” I start to the thermostat across the room when she clears her throat.
“The heater isn’t working right. I asked Lane to come by and look at it earlier this week.”
“And he hasn’t been here yet?” I shoot her a look and she shakes her head. “He’ll be here tonight.” I dig my cell outta my pocket.
“Crew, don’t. Please. The last time you called my landlord he was a complete jerk to me for a couple of months. I just got on good terms with him again.”
I scroll through my contacts list, looking for his name.
“Crew …” I know her doe-eyes are pleading with me. I also know if I look up at her, I’ll be somewhat inclined to give in. So I don’t.
Sacrifice, a novel unrelated to the others, will go live on July 13, 2015.
