RELEASE DAY BLITZ, 5 STAR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Intertwined (Redemption #2) by Sasha Brummer


Cover Design: Sommer Stein/Perfect Pear Creative
Release Date: January 30th, 2017
Amplified emotional highs have been my downfall. I’ve lost parts of myself to the dark corners of my heart because of the damage others have inflicted. 

Whiskey might be able to ease the burn of one’s soul, but this time it might not be enough to survive. Instead of letting me wither in the cracks of my desiccated soul, he pushes me to appreciate the scars, instead of avoiding the bruises. 

I’ve had more than my share of sanctioned hell, and I am through living in a limbo between who I should be and who I am. I won’t allow myself to become a casualty of my own mind again. 

I am no longer carrying the obscurities of my life around with me when he chooses to stand and fight beside me. 

With him, I finally see what it means to be living.  


My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Gah! I don't even know how to start this review. This book ripped my heart out and then slowly put it back together. I'm not sure that I can express how much I loved this book, but I will do my best. 

While reading Intertwined you will find the following things: 

✔ Great characters

✔ A fantastic story
✔ A plot twist or two that made me be like "Say whaaaaaaaaat?"
✔ Hot sex
✔ Happy moments
✔ Sad moments
✔ Some very scary moments
✔ Moments that made me ugly cry and curse the author 
✔ The desire to start drinking whiskey (if you don't already)

Sounds good, right?  

Isla and Liam have known each other for years. They both have suffered tragedies that altered the course of their lives. Tragic, soul destroying things that have made them the people they are today. Up until now, they have been friends who sleep together and nothing else. Until one day, they're not just friends who sleep together. Here's the thing...neither of them really do relationships. They don't want the attachment, but when Liam decides to make a serious change in his life, he marches straight into Isla's and turns it upside down. 

I loved Isla and I want to be best friends with her, but it took me a while to warm up to Liam. It's not that he is unlikable, he's just hard to read. When I started the book I was on the fence, but he truly cares for Isla and she trusts him. And the list of people she trusts is very tiny, so I gave the guy a chance. And I'm so glad I did.

I won't go into detail because you really should read this book knowing as little as possible, but I will say that all of the things I listed above, among others, make this an exceptional book. The author has poured so much heart and emotion into this story and it shows. Intertwined is an angsty, but gorgeous masterpiece that will give you a massive book hangover.
