I'm not going to rehash the blurb of this book but I will say that it's just so refreshing whenever I get to read a book where the h isn't either a weak doormat or absolute selfish b!*#h. Here we have a h who's finally comfortable in her own skin, has enough love and self confidence in herself to think and make reasonable decisions but is also vulnerable and human. I also loved how the author didn't overload the angst or make the H too alpha/in-your-face (although at times I do love me some dominant alpha). Instead she painted a realistic picture of a real H struggling emotionally, financially, socially and mentally with being out on parole, wearing the weight of his brothers death, dealing with 8 years in prison and being trapped in a small town that despise him, yet Jordan Kane is still so damn Hawt and super sweet and swoon worthy!
The romance takes its time as the characters are developing but doesn't wait too long and the steam is pretty damn hot too.
I took away 0.5 of a star as I woulda liked a more spanned out epilogue - but that's just my personal preference. H/h got their HEA and no cliffhanger.
Anyway, I highly recommend this book if your looking for less angst and a sweet but emotional read.
Lifers has left a long lasting impression on me. A story with meanings. Messages. Even through its beautiful cover that conveys so much story to it.
Jordan Kane was a broken man. One rash decision leads to a change of his life and took his youth away. He made a mistake and it cost him everything. The person he loved, those who loved him and most Importantly, he lost himself. Its also reminded us how easily for us to believe the worst about ourself when people around us do so. however, nothing is worst than to suffer from our very own prison of mind and didn't even realise it.
Torrey see more in Jordan beyond his history and what the town people said about him. She gets him. I instantly love Torrey and her personality. As a heroine she's badass and tell it like it is. I just love her! And beneath all that she's the most open person who doesn't preach but do. The kind of person I would love to be if I could.
Together as blessing in disguise they met and saved each other.
To me, this story is not just about the journey to forgiveness but also a story of redemption, second chances, and choices.
I love the witty humour. Just love the way its all very real and not over the top. Its one of those story that by a quarter of the book you knew its 5 stars reading material and the one that make you want to gush and scream all over fb to make them read it. Yes.. I think lifers is one of them.
Best of 2014 so far!
A well-written book, the story explores Torrey's outgoing personality and Jordan's withdrawn personality in a town filled with in-your-face attitude and accusations, families that both love and hate, friendships that go through much, and the influence that one death can have on an entire community. It is a love story between two opposite types of people, it is a story of justice and a story of faith. It provides great fodder for book groups, using school pride, cliques, rites of passage, religion, law, rules, parties, drugs, alcohol, parties, cars, fights, friends and family to launch possible topics for thoughts and discussion.
There are issues in the realism surrounding Torrey's father and, not wanting to give away the ending, the concluding pages' activities. With the thoroughness given to the larger part of the story, the concluding pages' actions have much less detail or sense of reality than the entire rest of the book. While the actions described are consistent with the story's development, it feels as if the author gave less attention to the concluding pages than the larger story indicates these pages deserved. Still, this is a book that deserves every reader's attention, and once the first page is turned, the rest will soon follow.
