Guest Review: "Sacrifice" by Adriana Locke

Readers: I've started taking on some work which is reducing my leisure reading time. In the interest of keeping book reviews flowing, I've asked a fellow book reviewer to share a review on my blog today.

You will find Nikki's review of Sacrifice by Adriana Locke below.


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.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Nikki's Review:

This. Book. OMG! This book is adrenaline racing, pulse Thumping, Heart Shattering, can't sleep until its done Good. No, make that great. Fan-freakin-tastic. I've never read a book that's gotten my heart, body, and soul working like this one did. Adriana Locke is a freaking rock star at putting words on a page. A genious! An amazing author. She KNOWS how to tell a story. A story that'll blow you out of the water. It just doesn't stop getting good. Every. Single. Word. Has you glued. It just keeps getting better and better!! It's gut wrenching, but honestly that's what makes this book what it is. The reality brought into this book, the fact that it's not all laffy taffy and rainbows, it makes you feel. And it was totally needed. A retired fighter and his first love. A little girl you will fall in love with. And a woman with a change to life as she knows it. Her husband's dead, her brother in law is to blame, her heart is broken, and her life will never be what it was. Julia is a very strong woman who has to survive a rocky life, and we get to join her on that rocky journey. I can't find a way to rehash on this story without giving anything away, so I wont. But just know that This book was perfectly written. The characters are amazing. And the author is a genious! ♡
