Title: Always You
Author: Belle Brooks
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 2, 2017
“I will breathe for you.” Some people’s bodies are built to run marathons. Others to lift and labour. And some are made so graceful their footsteps are barely heard.
My body was built to be a vessel. It was Always You.
Maybelline Connors knows stars are not always as faultless as they appear. She knows life is not permanently concreted into its foundations and love can last a lifetime…even when a lifetime is shorter than one hoped.
Willard Connors knows that life will rob you. That dreams are just that—dreams. And no matter how hard one prays, a star riddled with faults will always be riddled with faults.
What Will is yet to learn, is that he is stronger and braver than he ever imagined he could be. And that gifts from the heart leave a lasting imprint—an imprint unable to be erased.
With life there is love… with love there will always life.
ARC received for an honest review
Always You is my first Belle Brookes read and what little surprise packet this book was for me.
Will and May's story is emotionally exhausting one - not in a bad way, just that it will really take it out of you.
it is powerful. It is moving. It is one of those books that grips like a vice around your heart and doesn't let go.
For me, the start of the book felt a little clunky (this may just be me!!) , but as the story progressed I was swept away with Will and May's life and love. It is not always an easy story to read (again, not the writing but the story) but it is worth every tear that I shed.
Always You deals with a tough subject matter, and May and Will are both such strong characters who are surrounded by more strong people. I loved the support they gave each other, that they garnered from those around them.
This story is raw, it is gritty, it is real. It is hard to say what I feel without giving too much away, so all I will say is be ready for tears if you do pick it up to read.
