Release Day Blast: Path Of Destruction (Broken Heartland #2) by Elizabeth Lee & Caisey Quinn~ Includes Excerpt, Teasers & Giveaway
“Love was love. And she loved…”
Do not read this book unless you’ve read Storm Warning (Broken Heartland #1) this is fair warning. This series will seriously screw with your soul and mind and HEART. Not only will it bring you back to your high school days, it will also bring you back to the most heart wrenching pain that you felt as a result of those days. Do you remember when you were 17 and free? Do you remember that guy or girl that will never leave your brain? Have you ever thought---- Geez, What could have been? Could you imagine going back in time? This book and series brought me back in time. But, on a whole different level.
“With everything going on, the memories we made this summer are all that’s getting me through.”
For some young people, you might be there right now in the midst of this wonderful supernova of feelings that you can’t escape. And this book should shout at you!! I wish books like this were around when I was younger. I WISH. Every single character in this series makes sense to me. And yes I’m talking about the characters, because I can’t possibly talk about the actual book due to spoiler issues. And there are aplenty.
“You of all people know I’m not interested in being your dirty little secret.”
The only thing I can say that would make any sense is that I gave book #1 (Storm Warning) 5+++++ Stars. And I do not hand those out freely. I gave three books 5+ stars in two years, and SW was one of them. So to say waiting on Path of Destruction was torture is putting it mildly. And these two amazing Authors did a great job of giving “just enough” away.
“Are we adding that to our little arrangement? We’re allowed to be curious about each other now?”
Book two starts in the horrific aftermath of book one. And once again, I can’t say why! But I can say this… hearts are broken and alliances are tested. Friendships are burdened, and love is so uncertain where it lies. These kids are desperate. Some for love, some in denial of love, and some wondering what the hell love means. But one thing is for sure, they all have to see each other and deal with it. And the ending of book two is just as cliff-hangery as book one! E. Lee & C. Quinn might be out to hurt us people!!!
BUT…it’s sooooo worth it.
Great writing, wonderful angst, ugly-crying goodness.
“Whoever you are and whoever you decide to be, I will always care about you. I’m pretty sure I love you.”
Prologue – Cameron
I’d always heard that your entire life flashes before your eyes right before you die. Now, I can honestly say that it’s true. Well, almost true. It’s more like your mind flips through a mental photo album of all the things you’d done and the people you’d met—a birthday party, the first time you drove, someone’s face when you told them they’d never be as pretty as you, your mother’s reprimanding glare when you didn’t win the pageant title you were supposed to, you as a little girl waiting on the front steps for your father to come home—it’s all there. The good, the bad, the ugly. All of it.
You can try to focus on the good—like the face of the person you loved—but it’s no use. Whether you want to or not, you see it all. It must be God’s way of letting you see what he saw so you aren’t surprised when you end up on the other side in Hell. Which is exactly where I’d assumed I’d just booked a first class ticket too.
I was too weak to fight it—to argue that I was in fact a good person—once the storm decided that I was going to be one of its victims, there was nothing I could do but try to hold on to the face of the one person I was sure I’d never see again.
Served me right. I shouldn’t have waited to tell him how I felt. I should have told him the moment I felt it. The moment I realized that despite what I’d done in my past, I was a better person just for loving him.
As the darkness and quiet started to surround me, I knew that it was too late to beg for forgiveness now. Instead, I just closed my eyes and prayed for mercy.
