Release Blitz: Sacrifice By Adriana Locke

My life changed forever the night my husband died.

I was left with a shattered heart, a heap of bills, and our daughter, EVERLEIGH. I don’t want to rely on anyone, least of all CREW GENTRY. He’s my first love and the man who almost destroyed me, the man who has let me down every time I’ve needed him.

But when tragedy strikes a second time, Crew just might be my only hope.

My life changed forever the night my brother died.

I was left with a guilty conscience, a pile of mistakes, and little else. I take care of JULIA GENTRY, my brother’s widow and the love of my life, and their daughter. I know she doesn’t want my help, but she gets it anyway. I owe her that. When another disaster hits, I’m given the opportunity to make things right. I’m taking it. I'm willing to sacrifice it all.

There aren’t too many books that I have read that actually leave me truly struggling for words, in a good way of course, when typing up a review.  There are sometimes that this does happen, more often than not if it was a book that I didn’t like or one that disappointed, but when it is one that I truly enjoyed then that is something special in my eyes.  I could do my standard I loved this book you must drop everything else and read it right away review because when I say that I really do mean those words but for Sacrifice I wanted to try to do something more.  The problem is that I am having trouble finding out what words to express that “more” that would go beyond I loved it, read it, amazing and so forth. I also don’t want to give any spoilers away and I would be so tempted to just to help explain why it was so amazing.

Sacrifice is a book about emotional pain, struggling to survive, loss, forgiveness, second chances and love.  Be prepared to sacrifice any commitments you have while you are reading this book because you will be pulled in, enthralled, become an emotional mess, and basically live, breathe and sacrifice for Sacrifice.  I had to keep the tissues close by because I needed them and so will you.  If you are looking for a book that will do all the things I am still struggling to put into the perfect words then make sure you do get Sacrifice and start reading it right away because it is worth sacrificing any plans you may have to read it.

“She’s been missing him a lot lately.”

Julia’s voice is barely a whisper and my chest constricts. Our conversations don’t normally make it to discussing Gage unless we’re already arguing. The fact that she just brought it up shocks me and I’m not comfortable with it. I don’t know how to take it. I feel my jaw pulse with frustration and scramble to change the subject again. “Why is it so chilly in here?”

Her smile disappears and she tugs her sweatshirt nervously. “I didn’t know it was.”

“How can you possibly not know?” I start to the thermostat across the room when she clears her throat.

“The heater isn’t working right. I asked Lane to come by and look at it earlier this week.”

“And he hasn’t been here yet?” I shoot her a look and she shakes her head. “He’ll be here tonight.” I dig my cell outta my pocket.

“Crew, don’t. Please. The last time you called my landlord he was a complete jerk to me for a couple of months. I just got on good terms with him again.”

I scroll through my contacts list, looking for his name.

“Crew ...” I know her doe-eyes are pleading with me. I also know if I look up at her, I’ll be somewhat inclined to give in. So I don’t.
