Review Submitted By: Korena for Alpha Book Review
I wasn’t given a choice. Not when I did my first line of cocaine. Not when I became a single mother. But I changed, and every decision I’ve made was to protect myself and my son from my weaknesses—and my past.
Until Jude came along and made me question everything, even my own secrets.
The sins I carry with me can never be discovered. Life handed me broken bits of people and left me to construct my own world, and it’s too fragile to take a chance on Jude Mercer.
We write our own stories.
We build our own prisons.
We weave our own lies.
We commit the sins that bind us.
(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
It is a story on addiction. Addiction to drugs and addiction to making somebody better. Grace and Faith were identical twins. Grace introduced Faith to partying and how to sneak out of grandma’s house. Grace lived with the guilt of Faith’s spiraling life.
Years down the line, here walks Jude Mercer walks into the sister’s life. Jude makes her want to better herself and believe in herself.
You can feel the chemistry between the couple. Jude never gave up on them. Loved the best friend Amie and her ability to keep Jude in the mix.
Geneva Lee had a writing style all her own. You can see the story come to life. Well written. Made a difficult message come with a happy ending.
