Blurb:
When it rains it pours….
Hard-nosed and self-reliant Dallis O'Brien has had her fair share of devastation. Her father's tragic accident sparked what seemed like a domino effect of heartbreak and loss. Unable to shake the fear of enduring any more pain, she builds walls around her heart, hoping to heal on her own.
Dallis' road to recovery is disrupted when she meets Grayson Rivera, a tattooed, coffee shop owner who, by appearances alone, isn't her typical match. Stubborn and hesitant to let him in, Dallis finally succumbs to Grayson's persistence, where he challenges her to face her loss while also having the walls of her heart broken down.
With Grayson's assistance, Dallis must decide if she is willing to learn how to be weak in order to be strong

About the Author:
Just a book reading, writing loving, mommy and USMC wife! :)

I love to write, even if it isn't what is conventional and makes everyone feel giddy inside. I usually pull from dreams, or ideas that just thrust themselves into my head. I have what some would describe as a dry sense of humor, and I think its conveyed in my writing. I like to think I am a kick ass chick, but I can also be sensitive. I'm learning to grow thick skin, and in this field, it is definitely needed!
I won't put anything out that I am not absolutely proud of, but like E.L. James said, "I can't own people's reactions to it." Thanks for reading my work... I do appreciate it!

My Review...

Finding out this had a tattooed hero was enough for me to want to read this story.  When I first started to read it I was waiting forever for this mysterious tattooed hottie to make an appearance and was so glad when it finally happened.

The lead in felt a bit long but I know it was to build up Dallis's despair and hollowness from all her loss and heartship as well as her staying in a relationship because she feels it helps her when she is needy and not seeing what it truly was but a relationship of comfort, compliancy and need but not out of love.

Now finally enter...Grayson the light at the end of her dark tunnel.  He was lean, smart, tattooed and with gorgeous capturing eyes that made it hard for Dallis to turn away.

I liked the two of them and I loved the concept of this book at times I didn't quite feel how dark Dallis was portrayed to be, but I did feel the connection and love of Dallis and Grayson.

This book was about fate, second chances, friendship, being true to yourself, love and happiness.
