Title: Sacrifice
Author: Adriana Locke
 Release Date: July 13, 2015


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.

“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.

My rating: <a href="">5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
If I could actually give this book a million stars I would!!!!!!! <br>I have been touched by alot of books but not alot make me cry. I can probably count on both my hands how many times this has happened but never have I cried in a book this much. And not all are sad tears. The emotional journey that this book gives you is a cleansing feeling in it self. To know the struggles and strength these characters have pulls at your heart. Anytime a child is involved of course you will feel more. But you just don't understand what I'm saying until you read this book. At first glance I was confused at the events that took place because I had to read to understand it all. I know I'm talking in code but honestly if I say anymore it will give it away. Crew is a man I mean a real man somebody who excepts what is on the table and takes care of the ones he loves. And trust me when I say that man loves fiercely. Julia is a woman who loves just as hard but has been dealt with alot to handle so the most important thing in her life is Everleigh. Julia is Ever's mom she is a widow she doesn't have anyone who cares about her. The closest thing to family she has is her brother in law. Her mom and dad are around but not really anything you would want your daughter to be attached to. She works two jobs to pay the bills trying to take care of her little family. This story sends a message that you should enjoy everyday you have because life's to short to not live for tomorrow. I know we question God about why but sometimes its just supposed to be the way it is. I loved this book for multiple reasons. <br>1) it has depth <br>2) it's emotional <br>3) it feels real <br>4) these things happen <br>5) Sacrifice <br>6) Simple Man<br>Honestly I could go on forever about the multiple things in this story because they are so touching. I love books that have the capacity to open your eyes to things that are real. And sometimes in life you have more than one love maybe an in between. Every ones life is different but in the end its what your willing to sacrifice for the ones you love. The willingness to make sure that no matter what you've made a path that everyone will be OK. I have followed this author since the beginning and the growth of her writing is astonishing I'm beyond blown away by this book. I want to thank the author for allowing me to read for an honest review. Reviewing for Night and Day book blog <a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"></a> Stephanie Powell
