#AD - THIS BOOK WAS GIFTED TO ME

Brief Synopsis: He’s the hot-as-sin rocker hiding a secret that would devastate his fans. She’s the only girl he’s ever loved, but keeping her safe means he had to walk away… 


Review: Siobhan’s books always break my heart, so I was scared and excited to pick this one up. “Only Ever You” blew my mind! Siobhan really focused on mental health, mostly towards the male lead character. I feel that having books about mental health in the community is great. Especially one that focuses on the male suffering with mental illness. So many men are brought up to be tough, keep their feelings hidden and not to speak about their feelings and that is ridiculous! We are all people who feel the same emotions and go through so many things, it is unfair to require one sex to close off their emotions. This book brought out so many emotions in me and I hope that it effects you in the same way. Thank you Siobhan and Social Butterfly for letting me read this book.

Thanks for checking out my post! xx

#AD - THIS BOOK WAS GIFTED TO ME

Synopsis: Emotional, angsty, new adult romance. Standalone title.
Gabby
Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them. From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover. He was my soul mate. We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever. Until he changed. And I believed I was no longer good enough. 
Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist. And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.
But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.
I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us? Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?


Review: Crying on my couch, surrounded by Kleenex and a concerned boyfriend asking if I’m okay. That is how When Forever Changes left me. Broken-hearted puffy faced but weirdly happy.

Gabby doesn’t realize how amazing she is so of course she doesn’t realize that two man are in love with her. She only has eyes for Dylan, her high school sweetheart and her soulmate. Until Dylan starts acting different and she doesn’t recognize the man in front of her. She looks around and realizes her life was only Dylan and now she must rebuild. But why did Dylan change and who will be her forever now?

If you are in need a of a good cry and a book that has so many twists, I highly recommend this book! Comment below if you have read it and if you cried as much as I did!

#AD - THIS BOOK WAS GIFTED TO ME

Synopsis: She’s the one who got away. He’s the boy she can’t forget… 

Cheryl
They say you never forget your first love, but I’m determined to prove Keven Kennedy is just a random boy from my past. It’s not like I still think about him after all this time. Or daydream about how hot his kisses were and what it felt like to have his hands on my skin. Nope, that’s not me. I’m in a happy place in my life. Engaged to a great man and finishing the last year of my photography degree. But since I returned to Massachusetts, everything reminds me of the boy who ripped my heart to shreds. Especially when my fiancé’s constant business trips, and dwindling attention, raises old fears to the surface. And then the unthinkable happens—Keven saunters back into my life, turning it upside down once more. It’s ironic he thinks he’s protecting me when the only one I need protecting from is him.

Keven
They say you never forget your first love. In my case, it’s true. Most everyone in high school thought Cheryl and I were a match made in heaven and that nothing could tear us apart. Until I messed up spectacularly and lost the best thing to ever happen to me. Years have passed, girls have come and gone, but no one has laid claim to my heart in the way Cheryl did. I thought she was lost to me forever when an unexpected encounter with an uptight FBI agent, and an intriguing proposition, brings the beautiful blonde back into my life. I didn’t hesitate to sign on the dotted line. I let Cheryl down once before. I’m not going to fail her this time.


Review: This book was WAY move intense than I thought it would be. DAMN Siobhan, you are really killing it! Keven is a quiet, intense computer hacker who does everything to keep his family safe. When he sees that the love of his life is in trouble, he knows he will risk it all for her. Cheryl has a love of life, school and photography. She tries every day to forget about her first love and move on with her life. She has a fiancé and her life is moving along as it should. But not everything is as it seems and soon Cheryl will be in danger from the people she holds close. Cheryl will have to turn to the person that hurt her the most. Keven.

This story was a romantic novel that had my stomach in knots and had me rage flipping through the pages. My heart went out to Keven for his childhood and his misguided missteps. I was just straight up worried about Cheryl. She is in serious trouble and has no idea! This book had me on the edge of my futon the entire time! I highly recommend you check out this story. You can read it without reading the rest of The Kennedy Boys series but I recommend you read those as well!


Note: Forgiving Keven is a STANDALONE title in the Kennedy Boys world. No cliff hanger and a guaranteed HEA. Due to sensitive content, sexual situations, and possible triggers, this book is recommended to readers aged 18+.
