When you lose the one person who grounds your existence, your whole world changes. In life, it is said that everything happens for a reason. If that’s true, how can you explain death? Especially when it happens to someone so young, so beautiful, and so innocent? My name is Bain Adams, and I struggle with these thoughts every day. I’ve been through hell and back, somehow surviving the unimaginable. My sister took her life six months ago, and now, what’s left is a shell of the man I once was, a shadow of the person I used to be. Do I miss that life? Absolutely. But I miss her more, every day. I pray time will ease the pain and help my suffering while I search for the answers…but so far, nothing. Happiness is something I knew so long ago, and now it’s nothing but a faint, distant recollection of the life I once had. My name is Arion LaSalle, and seven months ago my life was shredded to pieces when my fiancee disappeared while deployed. He never came home, burning a hindrance of pain and agony within my soul. For so long, I lived my life believing everything happens for a reason, until now.
*This book is an Erotic Romance novel. It is not intended for those under 18 years of age.*
First and foremost I will say that this book cover had me at HELLLOOO!!! Holy muscles cake! It's so hot it deserves all 5+ steaming koffees.
Every Soul is about the loss of a loved one and how they cope with that loss in different ways.
Bain pops pills and loss his ambition to play for the NBA due to the loss of his sister. Arion uses no strings attached sex as a way to keep her heart protected from losing everyone close to her including the loss of her fiance. I did enjoy the different POV's including Bain's sister Kinsey and the days leading up to her death. Moreover, I felt that the sex scenes overshadowed the story whenever Bain's or Arion's pov's was getting more interesting. I know the author adds a lot of erotic scenes to her books which is great, I guess I just wanted more out of the characters other than the hot stuff. The book does end with an unbelievable WTF CLIFFHANGER. When I finished the book I was stunned into silence then felt like throwing my kindle across my bedroom. REALLY?!? I despise cliffhangers! With many books you can tell when a sequel is inevitable but with this book it completely got me. The last page of the epilogue, really? Ah!!
Ignoring the fact that is book left me hanging I did enjoy the story and it's characters and rate this book 3.5 stars. I'm desperately waiting until 2015 for Every Soul's sequel EVERY HEART.
