Hell Without You by Ranae Rose ~ Giveaway and Review

Time changes everything, except what’s meant to be.

Seven years is a long time – long enough to transform Clementine from a small-town teenager with a broken heart into a woman ready to take on the world, but not long enough to make her forget about the man she was never supposed to see again. A temporary return to tiny Willow Heights thrusts her back into Donovan’s life and home, unearthing heartbreak and obsession that have stood the test of time.

He left seven years ago too, for war and other things Clementine can only imagine. Coming back to the town where he grew up in the shadow of poverty and drug addiction makes no sense, and neither do Clementine’s feelings for him. He could never forgive her for leaving, could he? Even if she had no choice.

Now, she has the freedom to choose … and so does he. Every day in Willow Heights makes it clearer: all he ever really wanted was her, and nothing will change that. Not even a taste of the hell that drove them apart in the first place.

My Thoughts:

Hmmm where to start? I liked it but I didn't LOVE it. It could have been a little better. In some of the parts I felt like the characters were rambling on and not really getting anywhere. A few parts felt rushed (like the conclusion to the murder). Overall though, I did like it. :-)

I thought Donovan was soooo sweet. Perfect book boyfriend material for sure!

Hell Without You had two long lost loves, romance, plenty of steamy scenes (Adults Only!) ;-), some mystery and a splash of action.

If you like second chance romances, you should try this one. :-)

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. ^^ this one could perhaps drive me away from paranormal for a moment or at least since the author is kind enough to include international in her giveaway i would be more tempted to give it at try^^

    sometimes second chance are goos, really depends why it didn't work the first time and you have kept the mystery so far^^


    1. There was a reason they were separated.. Lets just say that both of them regretted not being together and never stopped loving each other. :-).

  2. It sounds sweet. Did you review something from her before? The names really familiar. I know I've seen her stuff around but I cant remember if I've read her or not? Its been a really long day!
