Title: Be My December
Author: Rachel Brookes
Release Date: August 28th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl.
, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.
The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.
The dream of a ‘happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.
The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.
I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.
I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.
I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.
The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.
A girl who can’t say no.
A guy who craves redemption.
A chance encounter?
It all comes down to this.
Be My December?
This book is so different from Ms. Brookes' other books. But I loved it!
Eden had her life and choice ripped away from her. And like some victims it took over her life. Four years gone. Of pretending everything is okay. To agreeing to anything that comes her way. Saying yes is easy. Saying no has consequences. Eden was such an easy character to feel for. All her fears made sense and her actions were odd but also fitting. And once she broke out of her shell she was amazing and full of life.
Ky was also a pretty easy guy to connect with. He really is a knight in shining armor but he is also real. You can feel all of his emotions come through the pages as you read. His regret, his guilt, and how much he cares for Eden.
I really loved how easily they connected. And how easily Eden was able to become friends with Ashlyn and Josh. Ky was a sweetheart, too. And what he does for Eden is beautiful. I try not to have spoilers so I will leave it here. Be My December is not one to be missed.
**Please keep in mind this book deals with issues that some may be uncomfortable with. But Rachel handles it very well.*
