AGAINST THE WALL
Releasing on February 2, 2016
Fans of Katie McGarry, Simone Elkeles, and Tammara Webber will love Against the Wall! As teenagers, they fell for each other despite the odds. But now that Eric and Meghan are all grown up, they’re reunited by fierce passion and dangerous secrets.
Eric Hernandez is the bad boy of every schoolgirl’s fantasies—and every mother’s nightmares. But after serving time for manslaughter, he’s ready to turn his life around. He just needs a chance to prove himself as a professional tattoo artist. The one thing that keeps him going is the memory of the innocent beauty he loved and left behind.
Meghan Young’s world isn’t as perfect as it looks. The preacher’s daughter is living a lie, especially now that Eric is back. Tougher, harder, and sexier than ever, he might be the only person she can trust. But there’s no telling what he’ll do to protect her if he learns the truth, and that’s a risk Meghan won’t let him take. And yet, back in the arms of the troubled boy with the artist’s soul, Meghan can’t help surrendering to the man he’s become.
It has been a while since a book reached in and touched me deep within my soul, and this one did just that. A precious read that you just want to cuddle up with every night, so that the story invades your dreams and you wake up feeling loved and hopeful.
Eric, sigh, Eric...Eric, Eric, Eric!! This man! He was just WOW! I loved everything about him. He may have been a thug at one point in his life, and he may have just been released from prison, but I fell head over heels for him. His passion, his charm, his beautiful soul, there was just so much depth to this man, and I wanted to know everything about him. He wasn't perfect, and some of his actions, although kinda understandable, were questionable, but that did not deter me.
Obviously, it didn't deter Meghan, either. I enjoyed getting to know Meghan and I really felt bad for how Chip treated her, and for a while I just wanted to reach in and give her a good shake, because she seemed to just accept it, but I was overjoyed when she finally took a stand. Bravo! It had me cheering, not only because she made the right decision, but because her choice opened her up to the love that was so obvious between her and Eric.
I want to describe their relationship as passionate and fiery, and at times it was - it ignited to the point where I feared they'd get burned - but, at the same time I found their love to be pure and sweet and just everything anyone could ever ask for. They had their obstacles and life challenged them in many ways, but they were meant to be, and nothing could stand in their way.
This book was perfection and it left me needing more, because I never wanted it to end.
