Blurb : In a matter of seconds my entire world changed, and it was in that moment that I stopped living and simply began to exist.
In my grief, I sent a letter to the first boy I ever loved. I hoped in writing it I’d find some peace from the nightmare I was living, some solace in my anger.
I didn’t expect him to write back. I wasn’t prepared for his words, and I certainly wasn’t ready for the impact this soldier would have on my life. A deep-rooted hate transformed into friendship, and then molded into a love like I’d never known before.
Sergeant Devin Ulysses Clay did what I couldn’t: he put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, restoring my faith in humanity and teaching me how to live again. But now that I’m whole, I have a decision to make.
Do I return to my life as I knew it and the fiancé I left behind, or do I walk away from it all for the only man to ever break my heart?
*** I’ve been living in hell, but you won’t hear me complain. These men depend on me, as I do them, and this brotherhood is the only family I’ve ever known.
The Army saved me from a callous mother and a life on the wrong side of the tracks that was quickly spiraling out of control. So unlike most of the men in my platoon, going home wasn’t something I longed for.
I was content overseas, spending my days defending this country that gave me my life back. Fighting became my new normal … until her.
A letter from Katie Devora—a letter that I almost didn’t open. Her words put a fire back inside of me that I didn’t know I’d lost.
She gave me hope during a time when I was fighting every day just to stay alive, and now it’s time I fight for her.
Review : WOW … I think 3 letters are almost enough to describe my thoughts about “A Lover’s Lament” by K.L. Grayson and B.T. Urruela
I was halfway through the novel when I told a friend about it and while praising it I mentioned how real “Devlin” felt to me while reading the book. This made me check up on the authors and now I am actually kind of … speechless? (Doesn’t happen to often to me and would be bad for my reviewing)
But yeah … please authors admit … K.L. Grayson YOU were definitely staring at a picture of B.T. Urruela while writing this novel. (And I kind of think it went the same for him) …
But the way Devlin is described really seriously meets the pictures on B.T. Urruela ’s Facebook page. Yeah (blushing) I admit – after I found out why this author has his knowledge I was intrigued and checked up on his own debut novel which sounds pretty interesting as well, and in that process I also liked his FB page and stuff – because THAT is what you do…
So I think this is a first for me to admit that a book character has actually received the face of its author in my mind…
Coming back to the book. I really loved that you could feel that both points of view were beautiful honest. Bordering brutal at times….
I do not want to go into the details of the plotline….
But truth be told not only the characters were having tears in their eyes at times.
The plot feels just so real that you really can confirm that karma is a bitch as well as a savior.
And you should never try to figure out the odds for certain things to happen.
I could say so much about the plot but I will not. Just that this rare occasion of a great plot – meeting some very special authors left the readers with one hell of a story.
And I hope I will get more books like this from those authors.
