Cry For You

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, New Adult, Romance



You know how the story goes. Don’t you?

Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.

Not this story.

Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.

I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us, ripping us apart, and forever turned in to never.

He was gone. I was left to pick up the shredded pieces. Punished for the life inside me I couldn’t give up. The very thing I didn’t know would bring me out of darkness years later, could be the very thing that brings us together again for a second chance.

If we can only survive the ripple effects of the pain of the past and what lies ahead…

My Review:

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Shaniel Watson’s latest, Cry For You! Oh my gosh, this one was an emotional rollercoaster, but so worth the ups and downs! Landon and Lacey met in high school and thought it would be a forever, happily-ever-after love story. But after a tragedy tore them apart, they went their separate ways. Years later, however, fate intervenes and they find themselves intertwined in each others’ lives once again. 

First of all, let me say that Lacey was an amazing character. This girl had been put through the ringer since one horrible not in college, continuing to be judged by her choices many years later. Although she endured a terrible experience, she stood her ground and made the best of her life. Landon also moved on after tragedy struck Lacey, but his life was more going through the motions rather than true happiness. I must admit that there were several times throughout this novel that I wanted to choke and/or smack Landon, but I hung in there with him, as did Lacey.  

Author Shaniel Watson packed this novel full of every emotion imaginable and kept me on my toes the entire read with conflict and indecision. There were so many sad moments that broke my heart, but also plenty of happy, sexy, feel-good moments that balanced out the story. Being the first novel I have read by Watson, I was unsure of what to expect. After reading, I can certainly say that this talented author is one I will read again. Cry For You is an emotional, romantic story that addresses very sensitive topics in a respectful way. I highly recommend this one!
