Verity RB Banner.jpg

Verity_Amazon_iBooks.jpg

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity likely didn’t intend for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of the night their family was forever altered.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

REVIEW – ALL YOUR PERFECTS by Colleen Hoover

SYNOPSIS

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us—whose writing is “emotionally wrenching and utterly original” (Sarah Shepard, New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars series)—delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FIVE STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

”If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.” 

 

 

 

ALL YOUR PERFECTS is COHO’s latest and I found this one to be captivating. It is one unbearably angsty read but I loved every minute of it. This is why I’ve always considered Colleen Hoover to be one of the most truly gifted authors out there today. It’s been a while since I read a story about a married couple’s struggle to keep their love alive and this one was unbelievably gripping!! Even when things seemed completely hopeless for Graham and Quinn, I kept on praying that somehow they’d find their way back to the couple they once were.

Graham and Quinn Wells started off their romance in the most unconventional way but when their story unfolds you realize they were always meant to be. These two epitomize the definition of true soul mates. The story goes back and forth between past and present. We get to witness their love blossom and grow through the alternating chapters that take us to their past and then we feel the utter despair that consumes them both in the present due to their struggles with infertility. The couple who once couldn’t go a day without making love have now gone without intimacy for months. Quinn is just a shell of the woman she used to be because she feels broken for being unable to conceive children. She slowly starts to withdraw from Graham.

She thinks her subtle ways of avoidance are not noticeable to Graham but he knows his wife better than anyone. She’s the other half of his soul and he dies a little inside every day knowing he can’t ease her pain. While I understood Quinn’s devastation, I found her to be the most frustrating character. Graham was incredible! I loved him to the moon and back. He is definitely going on my list of top favorite characters created by Colleen Hoover. This man was beautiful inside and out. His love for his wife was unparalleled. I felt the couple’s heartache so deeply. I have to warn those of you who are afraid of angst that you might need a bottle of wine to get through this one but to avoid reading this book would be a travesty! This is COHO at her best!

Here are my overall ratings

Hero: 5++++++
Heroine: 4
Plot: 5++++
Angst: 5+++++
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

ABOUT WITHOUT MERIT:

The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.

Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.

Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

Poignant and powerful, WITHOUT MERIT explores the layers of lies that tie a family together and the power of love.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by ATRIA Books}

No one would be able to determine from the outside of our house that our family of seven includes an atheist, a home wrecker, an ex-wife suffering from a severe case of agoraphobia, and a teenage girl whose weird obsession borders on necrophilia.

 

 

Merit Voss is a seventeen-year-old girl who not only has to deal with the normal teenage angst most kids go through, but add on her strained relationships with her very eccentric family. She seems to think that everyone else in her family has major issues but doesn’t necessarily notice that she too has some odd eccentricities. Merit collects trophies from garage sales and thrift shops. Whenever she is in need of a “pick me up”, she goes in search of a new trophy to add to her collection. Her family’s home used to be the town’s church. Her father hated the Pastor’s barking dog so much that he found a way to buy the church when the Pastor was not able to keep up with the mortgage payments. Now the entire Voss family lives in the semi-renovated church which still has the huge statue of Jesus on the cross in what they have turned into the family room. Merit’s dad ended up having an affair years ago when her mother was sick which later resulted in her parent’s divorce and her dad’s remarriage to the woman he ended knocking up. What’s bizarre is that her mother lives in the basement apartment of the church since she became severely agoraphobic.

Merit has decided to stop going to school and it seems as though the whole family is so wrapped up in their own lives that no one really notices what Merit has done. During one outing to a thrift shop she notices a cute guy checking her out and then somehow while she is leaving the store, the guy ends up kissing her. This is a monumental kiss that she feels zinging through her from her head to her toes, but then as if fate is messing with her, he ends up being her twin sister’s boyfriend. Merit is completely distraught over the fact that there is something her twin sister, Honor, has that she is finally envious of. The twins are nothing alike. While Honor is carefree and popular at school, Merit is more of a loner, quiet, and barely has any friends.

When Sagan, Honor’s boyfriend, starts showing up for dinner every night at the Voss’s, Merit is beside herself. She does everything in her power to keep her distance and to have as little interaction with Sagan as possible. Merit later meets a very odd man, named Luck, while shopping at the local supermarket and decides to give him a lift to his sister’s home. Turns out Luck’s sister is Merit’s step-mom, Victoria. It takes no time for Luck to fit right in since he’s as peculiar as the rest of the family members.

When Merit stumbles across some pretty huge and disturbing family secrets and then is forced by Sagan to see some of her own transgressions, she goes down a path of destruction and decides to call her entire family out on all of their secrets. Will uncovering all of the Voss family secrets tear them apart or heal all the wounds from the past?

Will a romance between Merit and Sagan be able to thrive or will Merit’s inability to acknowledge that she is drowning emotionally keep these two from finding happiness together. Merit will learn that things are not always what it seems on the surface and that she may have been too quick to cast judgment.

*****Mel’s Review*****

4 “You Bury Me” Stars!

-“Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing a mistake deserves is forgiveness.”

 

 

Merit Voss is a 17 yr. old senior in high school. She lives in a small town in Texas, in the middle of nowhere. She lives with her large unconventional, dysfunctional, unusual family, & often feels insignificant in her household, and almost invisible. She’s grown apart from her siblings, & lives in a home of secrets & lies. With so many strained relationships, she doesn’t feel like she belongs, or fits in anywhere. She thinks everyone hates her, & constantly feels like her family is falling apart. They’re screwed up & all have issues.

Merit’s family has a bad reputation in town, but she prides herself on being spontaneous, & doesn’t often think of consequences. She has a strange habit of collecting random trophies, & while out one day locks eyes with a random guy. Something about the way he looks at her makes her feel things she’s never felt before. There’s this electric connection between them, & she’s intrigued by him. His intensity catches her off guard & excites her. They share a kiss that completely rocks her world, & she can’t stop thinking about him, & wondering if he’s meant for her. When he unexpectedly pops back up in her life things get complicated as her two worlds collide.

 

-I can’t think of a single instance where I’ve ever been looked at like he’s looking at me right now. Like I fascinate him.

-The second he kissed me I was a goner.

-I wanted it all. I wanted to feel everything. That unexpected kiss made me feel alive.

-I feel the weight of my attraction to him. It’s so heavy, it feels like an anchor wanting to pull me under the water.

 

This was a thought-provoking book that has romance but is mainly about the life & family dynamic of Merit. It deals with love, forgiveness & some serious subject matter. It is a reminder that we live in a society where our peers put pressure on us, but often nobody judges us as harshly as we do ourselves. Nobody is perfect, & everyone has their own problems. This book really makes you think about what’s right & wrong, and not judging others since you haven’t walked in their shoes. It also reminds us how important communication is with the ones we love.

 

*****Dee’s Review*****

4 POWERFUL STARS****

Without Merit is a compelling story about love, family and the hardships of being a teenager. A book I think would be great to read and discuss with family or in a book club.

 

 

Merit Voss is seventeen and her life has never been easy. Her family situation is very unconventional and sometimes hard to be part of. Merit is angry and her heart feels heavy because if full of heavy secrets. But one day in the middle of the town’s square the eyes and the presence of a boy will make her feel light and happy for the first time in a long time.

Merit will learn a lot about herself through the life experiences of her parents, siblings and even strangers. Through pain and also laughter she will begin to recognize all the problems that surround her and also that there are also solutions.

In the end, one thing will be certain, and that is that family is forever and you can lose just about everything in life but one thing, hope.

Coming from a large and very dysfunctional family I was able to relate and even find comfort in this story. Colleen Hoover has the beautiful ability to create stories that reach deep inside your heart, stories that truly matter. Just like Merit, my heart felt lighter after I was done reading. Beautiful story!
