Review

I was completely blown away - Carrie

I utterly in love with this novel - ConfessionsFR

Be My December had me utterly spellbound from the first page, the prologue left me in tears, my heart hurt, my soul was crushed and I knew from then that Rachel was creating something special. Rachel Brookes made me believe in happily ever afters. - Glass Paper Ink Bookblog

Rachel had created perfect imagery in this book. Rachel tapped into my emotions and blew me away.......completely. Not many authors can write those raw themes so well. Overall Be My December is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - Book Addict Mumma

No words can do justice to just how much I fell in love with this book
. - Amanda from Reel Ladys Love Smut

About the Author

Rachel Brookes is from a coastal town on the east coast of Australia where beaches, kangaroos and surfers roam free. She writes angst ridden love stories with a pinch of craziness, a dash of drama, a cup of romance, a spoonful of sexiness and the main ingredient hot guys. Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can't remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that's because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop and they are constantly writing together. When she does step away from her laptop she can be found taking too many photos, making scrumptious cocktails, laughing at Adam Sandler movies and spending her time with her amazing family and friends. Current releases: Just Breathe (Book #1 Breathe Series) Breathless (Book #2 Breathe Series) Breathe Again (Book #3 Breathe Series) Be My December (standalone)

"...As the perfect world I knew was destroyed, I ceased to exist as Eden Rivers...From that moment on, I would become a yes girl-as saying no seemed to be the worst decision I ever made."

December 16th is just a regular day for most people, but for Eden Rivers, it's the day her world stopped and she would no longer be the same. Her choices were taken from her that day, and she lived the next four years of her life hidden behind a facade that had yet to be torn down...Until now.

The day that Ky Crawford watched Eden Rivers walk into his life, he knew he was a goner. He saw past all the walls she had built up and he was determined to knock them down. He would do anything to protect her. He never considered himself a hero, if anything, he felt like he had something to prove. He needed to show this beautifully, broken girl that she needed to live again. The only problem was, he himself, was a beautiful disaster.

They had a month together. A lot can happen in a month.

You pull for these characters. You see them each struggle with their own battles. You want them to win; to come out on top. Ky's trying his best to show Eden that she is always in control of her life. She doesn't have to do what everyone wants to just because she's afraid of the outcome.

"I had no choice."
"You always have a choice."

Ky Crawford. Can I just say that he epitomizes protector? He's amazing!! He is everything Eden didn't know that she needed.
Ky pushed his own struggles aside to make sure she had everything and anything she needed. But how much can one person handle? Emotions are tough especially when you're not paying attention.

"I'm completely lost in you Eden, and I don't think I ever want to be found.

I'm not a writer, I'm a reader and that's why it makes life difficult to write reviews for books like Be My December because nothing I write can ever put across how good a book this was.

Rachel has such a way with words that she grabs hold of you on page one and doesn't let go until the end. Her writing skills are second to none and makes reading her work such a pleasure as you are just transported into the story.

This is Ky Crawford and Eden Rivers story. When we meet Eden we discover that she's been living in a bubble for the last four years following her rape at College and has just about been getting by in life by painting on her emotions every day. When she meets Ky, he vows to break through her walls and help her start really living again. Of course, Ky has his own secrets bottled up and demons to face.

I was touched by both Ky and Eden in this story which is rarity as I often find myself drawn to one character more so than the other. It was so not the case in Be My December and I found myself really routing for both characters from start to finish. There were times I could have just jumped into the pages and wrapped them both up. The development of their story together is just perfect. It's paced perfectly and their build from fiends to something more just helps with sucking you into everything that is Ky and Eden.

I also enjoyed the secondary characters in this book and they were just that, secondary characters that helped develop Ky and Eden's story as opposed to taking over. Sometimes I enjoy books that centre around multiple characters but I felt it just wasn't needed here. In saying that though Rachel certainly gave us enough of a taste that I can't wait for Josh and Ashlyn's story. Ooh and not forgetting Blake or Colby for that matter.

Eden’s life changed forever 4 years ago on December 16th.

You could say that mine changed too when I met Rachel online in July last year she had just released her debut novel Just Breathe, which had one of the best Prologues I had ever read, and it was in honour of that prologue that Just Breathe was the first review I ever posted on Bare Naked Words blog, July 9th. Rachel and I have been friends ever since, and I was honoured when she asked me to Beta read Be My December for her.

The Prologue for Be My December is very different to Just Breathe, in fact it is so heartbreakingly realistic, that I still dub Ms Brookes the prologue queen, but this time it wasn’t the beauty of the prologue that impressed me it was the utter despair and bone chilling fear it evoked in me.

We meet Eden, broken beyond repair on the inside, but surviving of sorts on the outside. She is hiding behind a façade of quiet yet fragile confidence, hoping to remain invisible to all, especially to the opposite sex.

Enter Ky Crawford, successful, confident, honey eyed, and dripping in deliciousness, he is practically beating the ladies off, actually he’s not beating them off he’s “getting his dick wet” regularly as his brother Josh so eloquently puts it. But he’s clearly also working all the hours god sends him to bury the memories from his past, but when he sees the beauty in the red jacket across a crowded room, those memories resurface. But so do feelings that he isn’t ready to deal with.

Be My December? One simple question, one not so simple story.

Ky is delicious (I think I may have mentioned that), a little intense and very protective of Eden.

Eden is vulnerable and yet strong, and together there is dynamite waiting to happen.
