Review by M. Leigh
I should have known by the tattoos that Sawyer was trouble. My mother always said to stay away from boys with ink, but she ignored her own advice. She also abandoned me and my little sister.
Life’s been hard for the two of us, on the run and on our own, but I just turned twenty-one and started working at a bar in a new city. I wear a fake wedding band and a veil of lies.
My gold ring didn’t stop Sawyer. He looked into me with his heavenly green eyes, and I nearly forgot my pretty lies. Now he wants to help me get my life together.
I should stay away, because he could blow my cover. When we get found—and I know one day we will—I want my sister to be old enough to handle the truth about our past.
I may be hanging out with Sawyer, but we’re definitely not dating. I swear, he’s not setting me on fire with every glance or casual touch. We’re just friends. I’m not thinking about him wrapping those tattooed arms around me, every second of every day.
THIS NEW ADULT ROMANCE contains mature content, including erotic sex scenes, drug use, and criminal activity. Contains graphic material some readers may find offensive (or very fun). Ages 17+
FOR YOU is a stand-alone novel with a HEA (Happily Ever After) ending and absolutely no cliffhanger.
For You is a story full of hurt, anger, sadness, angst, and heartache….but at the same time it’s full of love, inspiration, and hope.
Aubrey had a rough childhood and ended up having to deal with a multiple situations as a child, that most adults would never even consider having to deal with. But she takes it in stride and does what she believes to be right deep down in her heart. She makes the best of the crappy cards life has dealt her and her baby sister. She strives to give her sister everything she deserves and wishes that she could’ve had herself as a child. In order to do this, she has to keep her eyes, heart, and mind clear and focused. She could not afford any distractions or interruptions. One small mistake and everything she’s fought and worked so hard for could slip away in the blink of an eye……
Enter Sawyer…… typical, beautiful bad boy covered in tattoos and driving a motorcycle, that you know you’d better steer clear of but just can’t seem to. The moment Sawyer and Audrey met they both knew something was “different.” No matter how much she tried to deny it and push it aside, she could not deny the stir of emotions and feelings that Sawyer could draw out of her.
Once Audrey gives Sawyer the chance to be her friend she can no longer deny the true feelings he elicits from her, but she is still scared and un-trusting, and still has a few “lies” that she hasn’t came clean about with him that she is 100% sure will send him running for the hills to never look back again. As time goes on and she develops deeper feelings for Sawyer and a trust she didn’t anticipate, she finally comes clean with him about everything she’s been hiding that she is afraid could ruin her and her sisters lives. Sawyer, being the man he is, took it all in stride and was determined to make Audrey believe that he was the man she needed him to be for her and for her little sister and that he would love her like no other ever has, nor ever would. Audrey, her little sister, Bell, and Sawyer all grab a hold of your heart and make you want to wrap your arms around them, but the loyal, loving, devoted man that Sawyer proves to be for the girls makes you want a Sawyer all of your own.
Thank you to Mimi Strong for a beautiful, emotion-provoking book that was easy to read, and hard to put down .
