strange dream one night; she decided to just go for it and publish her first
usually find her listening to music, hanging out with her readers online, and
pondering the meaning of life.
Shew! What a ride we go on with this second book in a three-book series! Make sure you’ve read book 1 before diving into this one.
As we open this book, we are starting off right where we were left hanging in book 1. How in the world will these two who have done nothing but hurt each other, go forward in this book? OMG you won’t believe what these two do!
Preston is addicted to gambling. Nothing in life gives him the high like sitting in a casino. It’s caused many problems in his life with his family and friends. Bailed out numerous times, but until he gets the help he needs, he will continue to reach for that ultimate high.
Kit is living in her rundown apartment, working for the company that just merged with another. What she truly wants is what was left for her when her parents died. But Nonna is making it pretty darned impossible for her to get what is rightfully hers.
Can Kit and Preston make amends long enough to benefit each other and start the life they both truly deserve?
These two absolutely love each other. Will do anything for each other.
But with that love, the type of love that any good friendship needs to survive, is bound to backfire. It’s just finding the right time for one of them to self-destruct.
OMG, I need book 3 STAT!!!!
The story should come with it’s own hashtag – #Illusions.
“Illusions aren’t always a bad thing. Sometimes it’s your mind’s way of saving you when reality keeps trying to break you. A way of giving you something to believe in when you don’t have anything left.”
Things are never what they appear to be. The senses sometimes misjudge.One can see Mirages in the Day and contrary to the belief, the power rests with the deluded, Cause they’re pure of heart and selfless in their vision. They believe what the illusionist wants them to believe, sometimes knowingly, because they’ve fallen in love with the Illusion itself.
It’s easy to judge others from the outside looking in while we sit perched on our own throne of hypocrisy.
Glass houses and all that.
Book 2 starts where book 1 ended and Kit and Preston are in a locked horns position, each snapping, dodging, parrying, trying to cut each other with sharp horns, but when he bleeds, she bleeds.
Preston is at a dead end alley and Kit steps in to help him. The MoFo carries a chip as big as Grand Canyon on his shoulders and keeps fighting her off. He’s stuck very firmly between a rock and a hard place and his only salvation seems to be to accept Kits offer, but his pride, his secrets, his anger dn’t let him say yes.
The scene at Drive-thru had me laughing so hard and cabbie Kevin was effing hilarious.
“Beautiful pink-haired goddess, nothing in the world would make me happier than to be your husband.” OMG Kevin🤣😂
And their trade off is a Baaaaaaaaad idea right from the get go.
“I’ve destroyed everything that’s ever been mine—do you really want to roll the dice and take that risk?”
“Broken things never work as good as they used to.”
Maybe two sharp edges of broken heart might fit together….
The feels are in plural and in CAPS ! You will cry and holler and howl and ball up on the floor. But the ending will kill ya, it’s kindle hurtling. WTH Ashley!!😳
And I’ve destroyed everything that’s ever been mine.
Pick up the book and cry your heart out and then open a bottle of wine and keep drinking till the next book.
