A Bookworm Review by Ana
I give this book 5 stars!
We can’t forget true love, we can try but we will not be able to do it. No matter what people do or say we simply can’t forget. The biggest person can forgive, it’s hard but we need to try.
Have a look at the blurb:
I know what it’s like to have your heart split down the middle.
One-half chases her. The other half chases after the lies, deceit, and betrayal.
It’s a burning ball of hell.
Seconds, minutes, hours, and years all spent endured the depth of my own burning inferno.
All of it runs together while life passes me by.
Thirteen years ago, the woman I was in love with left me standing at the altar.
Some say thirteen is a lucky number.
Me? I curse the number.
Now she’s back.
She says things are not what they seem.
That they weren’t then either.
Do I believe her?
Do I forgive?
Time and truth will tell.
How can I describe my state of mind when I got a glimpse of this book?? Anxious? Yeah! Excited? For sure? Nervous? Hell no! I was all at the same time.
As everyone knows I love Kathy Coopmans. I love her as an amazing and kind woman that always has an answer to all my texts and as a freaking awesome author…
Have you read any of her books? Please girls grab all of them to see why I love her so much.
Tyson is her latest release and jeez Louise… What a book this is. I just need to tell you something first, despite this book is a standalone I totally advise you to read the other two books Riddick and Jude in order to know all the characters, their journey, their feelings and their friendship.
This book tells the stories of Tyson and Lynne and all book is switched between their points of view.
Lynne is a sweet girl that was betrayed by the ones who were supposed to protect her, to catch her if she falls but instead of doing that they lied. She may have money, a big house, but she feels all alone and sad. She was supposed to get married to the love of her life but she didn’t. Why?
Tyson is a strong man, very loyal to the friends that he consider family. He’s a police officer and very prod of it. He’s grumpy, stubborn and sometimes we can catch a glimpse of a smile. Behind that facade of a bad guy hides a man with a broken heart, a man that feels betrayed, forgotten…
The last time they saw each other was 13 years ago and now what? Can life make sense again? Can the lies be discovered? Can love return or it was never gone to begin with?
I’m still shaking, I’m overwhelmed, happy, sad. Dayum I’m a mess.
This book is way more intense then the others, don’t get me wrong because I love the other two but this one felt special, I can’t explain.
The story behind each character, the love that makes your heart tick is so high and so strong that it could have lift a truck.
This book is the total package because you will find love, trust, friendship, loyalty but also hate, betrayal, crime. So my only advice is to get ready to enter on a rollercoaster of emotions.
And girls… We have some pretty hot stuff into the mix but hey have a good look at the cover and you’ll drool over it. Ah ah ah.
Kathy you my dear are a goddess, a genius with words. I’m beyond happy to had the chance to meet you and your work.
Can’t wait for Dane’s story to arrive.
A Few Teasers:
My insides shake as she walks out with a warm breeze only to be replaced by the freezing chills and the ice cold stare of Jude. He shuts the door behind him, stands firmly in place and stares me down.
“That intimidating look may work well on the criminals you pick up; I assure you, Jude, it will not work on me. Now, what can I help you with?” Yes, I know that Tyson and his friends are cops. I know everything there is to know about him. He left as planned for the Army shortly after I left him. He’s a womanizer. Sleeps around, drinks and gets into fights. He’s angry, bitter and out of control and it all reflects back on me. I’ve studied the symptoms of a broken person. I’m one myself.
I know very little about his time at war. I’m sure some of his anger stems from there. I feared for his life every day. Kept up with the news and terror weighed on my shoulders every second he was deployed. I’m so proud of him for what he’s done with his life. Coming from a young kid with the odds of turning into a criminal stacked against him to a man of honor. A soldier turned cop. I couldn’t ask for a better man than him.
I still haven’t been able to let him go. The man I left lives in the tattered mess of my heart, and I never stopped praying our lives would have been different, that fate wouldn’t have snuck up on me and kicked my feet right out from under me. Stole our chance at happiness. I’ve loved Tyson since the first day I laid my eyes on him. Through time and therapy, I thought I would be able to stop loving him. That there was no way, love could be this strong that months, years and a decade later it would still linger. The precious memories I kept locked away swarmed to the forefront of my mind the minute I saw him again. Stolen kisses, bodies tangled together. Our hearts so full of promises to one another. I broke them all. Broke him. Broke me. I’m here to fix it. Somehow.
I remain calm matching Jude’s gaze while every cell in my body is a quivering mess. My stomach shifts uneasily and sweat breaks out at the nape of my neck. But, I will not falter or allow him to see that his presence is terrifying me.
“When Tyson first told me it was you I didn’t want to believe it. I prayed for you to disappear, to crawl back under your rock and stay the hell away from him. Now after seeing what this is doing to him. I’ve changed my mind. Before I get into why I think you owe me an explanation as to what your plans are, I want you to know I’m standing here not trying to intimidate you. I’m here to tell you if your reasons are not legit. I will fucking destroy you.” Good luck. You can’t destroy something that’s already broken.
