Love doesn’t have to be perfect to be true…
Years ago, Tanner Green loved Sunny Letman. She was meant to be his first kiss, first love, first everything. Then their world spun upside-down and out of control.
Free-spirited Sunny doesn’t do commitment. Sure, guys are great for a night or a week, but she always leaves first. That is, until professional skateboarder and town golden boy, Tanner Green, unexpectedly walks back into her life.
Despite their broken history, a fragile and undeniably electric connection still holds them together. Now Tanner has to convince Sunny that even though love isn’t always perfect, it’s worth sticking around for.
All my Christmases came at once when I got this ARC for Carry Me Home – no pressure there Lia or for any future works of yours – but you can write no wrong in my eyes. My one negative about this story – why is it not novel length?
Right from the first line, I was laughing. I love the frankness of Sunny and have always been a fan. She’s crass, she’s very upfront and she’s trying so hard to keep her broken spirit covered. From her dealings with Tahlia in Upside Down, I am excited to see a bit more of her and this story gave me great insight. She’s a tough cookie and when you read this book, you will know why.
I love her dialogue – I was laughing so hard at so many sections that I was reading stuff out to my hubster who countered with ‘sounds like something you would say!’ (And I do, I’m often heard at work saying ‘today’s word is brought to you by the letters S … H … I … and T’.)
As always, the writing is smooth, fast paced and intriguing. I say intriguing because I had no idea where these two were going to take me. There are several trigger subjects within this novella but Lia is not one to shy away from the harshness these topics bring and writing them in a beautiful way. The way the story clears up a lot of questions I had for these characters shows Lia is a master at writing. What starts off as a tale of giggles quickly turns to heartache and uncertainty. I truly didn’t know if these two would get their happy ever after.
I’ll be honest, I never really paid much attention to Tanner – other than her broke Tahlia’s heart. Little did I know that he had broken Sunny’s heart long before Tahlia’s. Tanner’s actually a good guy. He thinks he’s done something he owes an amends for. When he gets his answer, he can move forward and use his talents for a greater good.
Lordy, Lia sure knows how to write a sex scene that I defy anyone to say ‘doesn’t do it for me’. It’s sensual, it’s hot and it’s a little bit confronting. They both want the here and the now, but they are stuck with thoughts of the past and a possible future.
I will use up all my Christmas wishes right now to ask that this is not the end of this series.
