Divine's Blurb:

Matt Carson and Trina Lovett befriend each other during turbulent times at a young age. Over the years, their friendship strengthens building a strong, unbreakable bond. At least that is what they believe. Life choices put an ocean between them, and the depth of their bond is tested.
Under the stress of being apart, heart-wrenching events leave them plagued with doubt. Danger forces them to make irrefutable decisions about what they want from life.


My Thoughts:

Matthew “Matt” Carson has a painful childhood.  And it’s at this sad point that he meets Katrina “Trina” Lovett.  Our author does a great job in creating her characters.  And you will understand this when you begin to feel sorry for Trina because she has parents that have no clue in how to nurture their children.

The is a story that reminds us to embrace life because we just don’t know how long we will be on this plane.  We have to fight against those that try to influence us in order to do what they want.  We also have to embrace our siblings.  Yes we may hate them but they can be our best advocates when we cannot speak for ourselves.

It also shows that you can’t discount having a male for a friend.  It’s this friendship that sometimes can turn into more and develop into an everlasting love.  And if you go through some heartache along the way, don’t give up if this is something you want.  My disappointment came when I realized how short this story was.  The only hint on the ending – you’ll have on a nice smile. 

I look forward to when the other books come out and then I can go back and read all three books one right after the other.  With how busy our lives get at this time of year, a book that can be read in a matter of a couple of hours is a good thing.  And this is one book that inspires me to want to take a road trip to find where these two characters decide to settle down. 

Divine’s Book Trailer:

Divine Excerpt:

Matt’s throat clogged, and tears burned his eyes. He waited so long, wanted her so much, he couldn’t move, couldn’t process what he saw. Didn’t know what he felt. He’d longed to pull her into his arms, hold, and kiss her until they both melted into a pile. Now that she was here, he couldn’t. Too many unanswered questions.

Moisture covered her cheeks and chin. A god-awful sound escaped her. “Matt,” she said through her hands and sobbing. “Oh, God, Matt!” But she didn’t move.

Jeez, he wanted her. “Trina,” he said again, too shocked to think of anything else. He dreamed, hoped she’d come to him, and still, in his wildest imagination, he didn’t believe the day would ever arrive. Bradley told him she was doing better. He thanked the stars every night, but he didn’t go to her. Couldn’t, not with how callously the Lovetts treated him. She had to decide what she wanted. He wouldn’t push it. No matter how much he wanted her, he wouldn’t impede on her relationship with her parents. By no means were they nice, and he questioned their motives more than once, but they were her parents. At least she had them.

“I have so much to explain, so much to tell you.”

His body zinged from the desperation in her voice and came to life. “I want to hear every word.” He couldn’t resist touching her and moved forward. His desire to reach her crashed into him with such force, any minute he’d leap and land on top of her. “But first—”
