My Rating: 4 Stars

Genre: Suspense/Thriller/Mystery

Publication Date: 8-8-2015

Length: 286 pages


Synopsis:

I hear screams in my head. I see blood on my hands.When I look in the mirror I see a stranger.

How is it that I can remember bits and pieces of my life, but nothing of any importance and nothing that makes any sense? Everything is twisted and nothing is right. I’m choking with every breath I take, suffocating on the unknown. Two days ago, everything changed. Two days ago, the people I should trust the most became strangers in my convoluted head. The dreams I have can’t be real. The fleeting memories that whisper through my mind are scary and wrong…they have to be. If they aren’t, I have something much worse to fear than my fractured mind. I need to find out the truth, even if it destroys me. I’ve been told my name is Ravenna Duskin. I’m eighteen years old and I live in a prison…


My Review:

My favorite thrillers are ones that keep me guessing & on edge until the end. That is exactly what Tara Sivec does in Bury Me! I would think I was finally starting to figure it out & then she would surprise me! The ending of Bury Me was literally jaw-dropping. I was like “what?!?!” I wasn’t expecting that ending at all!

I would recommend Bury Me to anyone who enjoys a dark, suspenseful thriller that just blows your mind! I will definitely purchase another thriller by Tara if she releases one in the future.

REVIEW: Wish You Were Mine by Tara Sivec.

 

51Lm-8wA9WL

My Rating: 4 Stars

Genre: Romance

Publication Date: 11/14/2017

Length: 369 Pages


Synopsis:
From the USA Today bestselling author of The Story of Us and Fisher’s Light comes a new, stand-alone novel—a heartwrenching story about first loves and second chances that will make you fall in love all over again….
 
Five years. I would’ve stayed away longer if I hadn’t received the letter. Not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought about her, haven’t missed her smile, haven’t wished that things were different.
 
The last time I saw my two best friends, I vowed to not stand in the way of their happiness, even if that meant I couldn’t be a part of their lives. Cameron James and her emerald-green eyes were too much of a temptation and I couldn’t stay and watch them together. Cameron deserved better than me. She deserved him.
 
But now that I am back, things are different. I’m not going to stand by and watch the woman I’ve always loved slip away again. I’m done living my life with regrets and I’m ready to tell her the truth. And I’ll do whatever it takes to show her that I always wished she was mine.

My Review:
This is the 3rd book in a row that I’ve read by Tara Sivec. Tara is such a talented author! Most authors tend to stay with one genre, but Tara can write multiple genres & she does it flawlessly. In my opinion, they are all amazing!
 
The cover of the book is beautiful.😍 The cover alone makes me want to read it. You can tell it’s going to be a good tear jerker & sometimes a woman just needs a love story & a good cry! 😉
Wish You Were Mine can be read as a stand-alone, but I highly recommend you read The Story of Us first if you want to get the full experience.
 

You will say wtf throughout the book…just giving you a warning. I wanted to reach into the book & smack Everett so many times. He’s definitely a clueless man lol! He drove me crazy, but he broke my heart at the same time.

PTSD is a big part of The Story of Us & Wish You Were Mine. I never thought about doctors getting PTSD until I read Wish You Were Mine. Everett had to make decisions that no human should ever have to make. His struggle will break you!

As much as I loved Everett’s character, I think I loved Shelby’s a little more. I admire Shelby’s strength & her attitude. She will let you know if you have done something wrong. She has so much strength & spirit. She is fierce!

I can’t even talk about Aiden. If I do, I’ll be sad all night. Tara makes you feel so connected to her characters that you feel like you are right there with them. Your heart breaks right along with theirs.

The only reason I took off points off the rating is that there are some noticeable misspellings in the book. Other than that, it was amazing! I hate putting anything negative, but if I were an author, I would probably want to know there’s mistakes so it can possibly be fixed.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the mood for a sappy love story!

REVIEW: The Story of Us by Tara Sivec.

519EdDycPBL.jpg

My Rating: 4 Stars!

Genre: Romance

Publication Date: 6/11/2017

Print Length338 pages


Synopsis: 

How much can a man take before he breaks?

1,843 days. That’s how long I survived in that hellhole. They tried to break me, but I resisted. And I owe it all to the memory of warm summer nights, the scent of peaches, and the one woman who loved me more than I ever deserved to be loved. Now, I’ll do anything to get back to her. Only Shelby Eubanks isn’t the girl I left behind all those years ago. She’s someone else, a stranger. My Shelby-my little green-eyed firecracker-would never give up her dreams, would never disappear into her mother’s ambitions. But I won’t give up on her. On us. I may be broken, and scarred, and not the man I used to be, but I will do whatever it takes to remind her of the story of us.


My Review:

I’ll just jump right in and say that The Story of Us stole my heart. I can honestly say I’ve never felt as connected to the characters of a book as I have with this one.

Tara has an amazing way of making you feel like you know the characters personally, which made me feel every emotion Shelby & Eli felt. Happiness, sadness, anger, and frustration.

Tara really opened up my eyes to PTSD. I haven’t read much about PTSD and I’ve especially not read a book that describes how bad it truly is.  Tara did an excellent job of getting me into the mindset of someone with PTSD. I was devastated & I just wanted to wrap Eli up in a big hug & protect him!

Shelby is a strong, selfless woman. I love her fiery attitude and how she fought to get back her life. Shelby is such a loveable character and my heart broke for her so many times. I wanted to reach in and give Shelby a big hug too!

I can only hope to have a love as strong as Eli & Shelby someday!

I would definitely recommend The Story of Us to anyone that loves a tearjerker romance. Just remember to keep some tissue nearby!
