Book Description

A SUSPENSEFUL SECOND-CHANCE ROMANCE!
RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 18 AND UP DUE TO SEXUAL SITUATIONS, STRONG LANGUAGE, AND GRAPHIC VIOLENCE.

Camryn Hamilton is a fighter.

A thirty-something mother of two, Camryn appears to have it all: a husband, plenty of money, and children she adores. When she returns home to spend Christmas with her family, her perfect world she has created begins to crumble, thrusting her face to face with the only man who truly knows her.

Holden Patrick will fight harder.

A powerful, handsome attorney, Holden left town after his adoptive parents’ death. In his time away he almost managed to forget the girl who ran away with his heart. At least until a turn of fate brought him back to Mantoloking, and back to Camryn.

But are they willing to fight for each other?

Faced with a tragic past that they both wanted to forget, they struggle to protect their hearts from being broken again. Will their love be enough to get them through another tragedy, or will they close themselves off and run away again?

2.0 out of 5 stars not what I was expecting May 3, 2014
By grace
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok I bought this book based off of reviews. I was so disappointed with it. She was so extremely down all the time, blamed everyone else for her sorrows, complained about being broken all the time, wouldn't let anyone in...I could go on and on. The whole book was like this, and the guy was way too understanding...never got annoyed with her, and it was just unrealistic. I stopped ready finally in the middle of book. Couldn't finish it, couldn't take ANY more taking it slow, feeling sorry for herself crap.
P.S. Don't waste your time.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but some questions left unanswered May 27, 2014
Format:Paperback
Camryn has been happily married for several years when her husband, Marcus, asks for a divorce out of the blue. The same night, her high school sweetheart, Holden, is back in town after being away for the last 8 years, and he is determined to win her back. But Camryn has first to come to terms with her husband’s decision while at the same time taking care of their two young girls, Ellie and Sophie. On top of all this, a dark secret from her past threatens to break her all over again when the man responsible reappears, and Camryn receives a threatening letter. Will Camryn be able to trust Holden again, and keep the darkness at bay?

Dust to Dust by S.P. Cervantes is a contemporary romance, and the first installment in the Broken Fairy Tale series. There will be 4 books in the series, each one a spin-off with a different main character. In Dust to Dust, the descriptions of the feelings between Camryn and Holden are well written if a bit repetitious. In addition, the author knows how to keep the sex scenes tasteful without giving too much details. I particularly liked the omnipresence of music in the book. In fact, the title Dust to Dust comes from a song by the Civil Wars, a song about loneliness and letting a lover in. Other artists mentioned are Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons and Bruno Mars. If you wanted to, you could set up a playlist to go with this book! There are also references to “Seinfeld” and “Reservoir Dogs”, a TV show and a movie I love. The ending is satisfying even though I would have liked a little bit more background information into the perpetrators of the crimes.

In conclusion, I enjoyed reading Dust to Dust by S.P. Cervantes, but I thought the author left some questions unanswered.

5.0 out of 5 stars I did not want to put this book down! April 7, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely LOVED this book! I wasn't sure what to expect as I have never read an S.P. Cervantes book before, but I was very pleasantly surprised and can't wait to read more from S.P. Dust to Dust was the perfect mix of romance and suspense, and absolutely leaves you wanting more. If you are looking for a book that will allow you to escape the stress and obligations of your daily life, and allow you to simply enjoy some 'me time', this is the perfect book. You will love every single character and especially fall in love with Holden and Cam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! This is a MUST read. March 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow I literally couldn't put this book down. Dust to Dust has everything you could possibly want all wrapped up in one book. You will fall in love with the characters S.P. Cervantes has created for us to enjoy.

This story revolves around two characters Holden and Cam and their own inner struggles. This book has it all tragedy, murder, mystery, death and much more but at the heart of this book is a incredible love story. I became heavily invested in these characters and didn't want the book to end. I really hope this isn't the end of Holden and Cam's story, give us one more S.P. I loved every page of this dark, heart-wrenching, but also soft and gentle beautifully written fairy tale.

When it comes to romances, you'll find me asking "And your point is what?" Romance books bring to my mind those things which seem to unrealistic and wishful/hopeful (but of course, we all are in some vein). Saying this, I loved the writing of Cervantes in D2D. She takes adult situations filled with the mistakes the characters have made and brings two people together who should have been there if certain horrendous events hadn't reared their ugly heads in the romance line. The centerpiece for D2D is the deep friendship with possibilities of more between Camryn and early love of her life Holden. Since you can't turn back time and erase your mistakes, they've followed their own life paths and come back together again. Cementing that relationship once more will not be easy for there's a matter of a secret and a shame that must be overcome to find that true sense of happiness.
As a reader I stand in awe of Cervante's skill in telling a story with Camryn and Holden as the centerpiece, bringing in the element of a mystery and its deadly ramifications and keeping the actions on par with what it means to be an adult and still hanging out for the dreams of their younger lives. It's a push to make things happen for their own future despite the hurdles with courage, strength, and love, filled with the tensions of will they/won't they. Put this on your reading and you'll be pleasantly surprised..
