Giano gave me life.
I gave him death.
The path to peace inside of me was covered in his blood.
Could I ever believe in love again?
Instead of going right, though, I veered left into the depths of a world unknown.
*This is a romantic thriller and is best read after Stay (Love in the Dark 1). Due to triggers and graphic violence, it is not recommended for readers under the age of 18.*
Reclaiming Me – coming soon
The ending will gut you so be ready!!
I am pretty sure I shouty caps emailed Chelsea about this book!!! ANNND more then once!!!
I received this book from the author for an honest opinion.
*wipes the tears* WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY!! I mean WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY did you do this to me Chelsea Babe!!! OMG This is a whole new level of writing for Chelsea. I love her Hellions, Smoker Jumpers and bar guys but Giano is a whole lotta perfect wrong????
This book jumps right outta the gate into wrong wrong wrong territory!!
Fallyn is enduring what she does nightly when all of a sudden a man appears and saves her. The why of it doesn’t become clear until much much much later.
Fallyn is so confused. Why is she here and who this man who is caring for her. When she starts a conversation with the stranger, she is soon told what she is expected to do. She is expected to live. She is expected to thrive and she is expected to not take life for granted. We learn that she can’t be Fallyn but will now be Angelina AKA Angel to our stranger AKA Giano. The two form a strange bond. He is wanting to help her and she is wanting to have a real life. They begin to navigate life when she finds out who Angelina really is. The bond that they share is unique. They become a strange “family” unit. Dad and child but always knowing that is far from the truth.
Fallyn has to learn to navigate life as Angel. She begins to have a life but in high school Giano’s “work” catches up to him and causes some trouble for Angel. This then makes Angel wonder about her REAL family. Where are they? Are the dead? Are they alive?
As time goes on we see some sparks between Giano and Angel. She is growing more and more attached to this savior and he is more and more attached to his Angel…..the then girl now woman who saved him. The two have a very twisted and gritty life but after 8 years together something happen and the relationship is now shifted and forever changed…….
For me BOTH Epilogues helped my heart. I love the need Fallyn has but I understand the emotion that Angel expresses…….I Kinda liked Fallyn a little it more buuut that was my black heart at work there!!
Seeking Solace Review –
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I was a HUGE fan of Stay. If you haven’t read it, you need to stop and read that story first. You have to read it in order to understand what is going on in the series.
This book takes placed right after *sniff* Giano’s death. I am still so sad about that yet Chelsea still says it had to happen….sigh…anyway, Angelina is a mess. She is guilt and hurt and sad and lonely and just A MESS!! She misses Giano with everything she is. She has Uncle ZoZo there to help her pick up the pieces but its just not enough.
After his death, she packs up and goes to college to try and move on with her life. She meets and falls in love with Shawn who also has ties to “The Families.” No matter, we see her thriving and mostly learning to love and trust……However, Angelina soon learns that the “PAST” Giano tried to shelter her from is not gone. Her past is going to come back to haunt her and her new love.
I am so excited to see the final installment. Fallyn returns to kick some ass. Angelina is the sweet face to our girl but when Fallyn comes out to play, ya’ll better be ready. She is not happy and she is going to be leaving a trail of blood in her wake!!!
