Review: Sacrifice

Title: Sacrifice
Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: NA, Sports


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. 


       5 Hearts

I picked this one based on the recommendation of some reader friends.  I have not read this author before and I hadn’t read other reviews on this book before starting.  I am afraid a bunch of words that I write will not do this book the justice it deserves. 

It isn’t fair to give a synopsis more than what the author has already given.  This is a book you need to experience without any pre-conceived notions about what it contains.  It is a story of un-ending love.  First love.  Love of a husband and wife.  Love of a child.  Brotherly love.  Second chance love.  Pure, unadulterated, from the heart….love.  It’s about love that burns and consumes the lives of Crew and Julia.  Sometimes, in order to best prove the rightness of our love, we must sacrifice that which we hold most dear. 

This book will make you cry in sorrow and in joy.  It will make you want to hug those you hold most dear.  I guarantee you will feel the love contained in the words of this story.  It is well written and I thoroughly recommend reading additional titles by this author.
