When I requested this book for review I thought it was going to be about a woman recovering from a devastating loss. I never anticipated the wild ride it took me on, and the feeling and emotions that it would bring out in me.
She Cries is an accurate portrayal of how the general public tolerates and somehow rationalizes the actions of people with a celebrity status. It's a multi-layered story that peels back page by page. At the beginning of some of the chapters you are never quite sure whose thoughts you're reading. You hold your breath, wonder what this scene has to do with the story, and then it becomes clear whose head you are in at that particular moment. It's a bit of a unique way for the story to unfold, and pretty clever of the author, not to mention it added to the overall intensity of the read. It's also very deep, and at times, a dark story, with some brutal and violent sexual scenes that some readers might find disturbing. However, it's an essential part of the story that's being told.
On a lighter note, I enjoyed the family-owned ranch setting and horse training aspect of the story. For a horse lover like myself, it added another interesting element to the read and was very authentic.
I wouldn’t say this is a romance in the traditional sense. However, you can see the writing on the wall very early on for two of the characters, Sam and Kali. Admiration and mutual respect forms between the two of them, which then leads them to contemplate about their lives and the direction they want to take and the choices they need to make. My heart went out to Kali and all that she was dealing with. I honestly didn't think a man like Sam would bring anything good into her life. I wasn't a fan of his at first, but he grew on me, and won me over with the way he treated Kali's girls and how he went soft for her. I found myself rooting for him...for them!
It was a heart pounding race to the finish and the ending…pure bliss, because She Cries made me cry in a very good way! Definitely recommend this book to readers who like a gripping, edge of your seat read with some sweet mixed in that comes to a very satisfying ending.
I still have chills from reading this book. *insert nervous chuckle here* I mean, the hairs on the back of my neck rose and my body stiffened every time the antagonist, Jeremy Connors, came into the picture. From the very beginning I just wanted to go through the book and punch him in the face, that is how bad my feelings toward him are. So I definitely commend the author on that.
And Kali...whew...she is definitely a firecracker. I mean, who blasts Michael Jackson at 5 in the morning? She does! She probably was one of my favourite characters in this book, mainly because she is so tough. This woman lost her husband and is still going strong...or at least that is what she portrays to the rest of the world. Behind all her toughness, though, occasionally you see this vulnerability that she saves for when she is alone. That makes her so amazingly likeable to me, because she doesn't play the victim. She just takes things day by day. And even though she does not know it, she truly just wants to be loved again. You see a loneliness about her. So I was glad to see her on the receiving end of the romance aspect of this story.
I really do love that this story hosts the topics that it does. Rape, misconduct, abusive actions...It also touches the topic of how someone's status in life can allow them to get away with things like this. And the people who defend them even when they know there is a semblance of truth to the charges against their clients. There is a morality to this story. You see it in the lead attorney of the Jeremy Connors case. He begins to question why he is even involved, and he also begins to question his morals. He truly is sickened by his client, but the promise of a promotion is kind of hard to turn down. However, he will find that there is a line he will not cross regarding how far he will go to keep his client out of trouble.
There is humor, there is pain, there is romance and horses, what more could a girl ask for?
I loved this story. It was a great read and definitely showed that not everyone should be afraid to tell the truth. It also showed that even after tragedy, things can turn out okay. Life can change at a dime, and love can come when you least expect it.
Definitely an author to read in future.
