Waiting On Wednesday: Always Remember (#2) – Emma Hart

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a weekly event that allows all us book bloggers and lovers to talk about what upcoming book we’re most looking forward to reading.

I LOVE ALEC and I definitely had a soft spot for Bing but after reading Holding On, that soft spot turned into love as well. Emma is awesome and I cannot wait to read Always Remember. So for this week, it is my WOW 🙂

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Synopsis

How long does it take for a long-distance relationship to break down? Sixteen months.
When Jen and Carl put their relationship to rest after Christmas, Jen’s biggest problem is going back to London ten days earlier than planned – and her ever-present attraction to Samuel ‘Bing’ Edwards.
Bing has no idea why Jen left Devon so fast. All he knows is that he wants her as much as he did the first day he laid eyes on her – so spending time with her while Lexy is still in Devon isn’t exactly a hardship for him. When he finds out she’s single, the only thing on his mind is finishing what they started at his dad’s fiftieth birthday party.
Feelings that have been a long time building between the two explode, and they both find themselves sucked into an easy yet passionate relationship, with Bing determined to prove to Jen that she’s it for him. That she is The One.
But in a city like London, the odds are stacked against them, and there’s always that one person ready to stir things up… And Jen doesn’t know how much of that she can take – even for the guy she loves more deeply than she ever imagined, and eventually she breaks.
Bing isn’t down with that. He wants Jen, and he wants her by his side for good.

Jennifer Mason must learn that Samuel Edwards doesn’t do giving up. Especially not when his forever girl is involved.

Release date: May 13th 2013

Holding on Synopsis

Living in London after spending almost twenty years in a town with a population of three hundred would be hard on anyone – and Alec Johnson is no exception to the rule.

When Alec followed Lexy to London, he knew his life would change drastically. He just didn’t know how much. With Lexy’s friends and admirer to contend with, he has to show there’s more to the country surfer boy than is ability to ride the waves. With his own shameless admirers, he has to keep Lexy’s trust – and despite her love for him, that’s no easy task.

Beneath her tough girl exterior, all Jennifer Mason has ever wanted to do is paint. London’s School of Art can give her that, and she couldn’t be happier she’s finally breaking free from Lilac Bay. What she’s not happy about is having to leave Carl behind – or his reluctance to visit her while she’s studying.

Their relationship is put to the test as living on her own for the first time and university take their toll on Jen. After all, three hundred miles is a long way to be away from your boyfriend when you’re eighteen years old.

And it’s even harder when you can’t keep your eyes off your best friend’s older brother.

Excerpt

JEN

I stand, walking towards Bing. “Tell me this is some kind of ass wiping joke?”

“I wish,” he replies, looking down at me. “Believe me, spending my evening with you wasn’t in my plan.”

“So change it,” I hiss. “There is no way I’m spending all of Saturday night smiling and hanging onto your arrogant arm, Samuel!” Although, it is a very pretty arm.

He sighs. “Look, Jennifer, I don’t exactly want you on my arm, but it’s too late to change it. Mum has already ordered matching outfits.”

“Are you fucking kidding?” I deadpan. “Not only do I have to go with you, everyone will know I’m with you because, what? Your tie will match my dress?”

“Oh, and there’s the brains she used to get into university,” he responds snarkily. “Yes, Jen. My tie is the same material and colour as your dress. Believe me, I’m not damn happy.”

I heave in a breath. “This is gonna be as about as successful as Hades in the North Pole.” I throw my arms up, and turn back to Lexy’s bed. I throw myself face down on it.

“I wouldn’t lie like that,” Bing says. “You have no idea what’s happened on that bed.”

I get back up and growl. I push past him, moving to stomp down the stairs.

“Hey, I was just saying!” he calls, following me.

“Go away, Samuel. I want to see you as much as I want a shard of glass in my ass.”

Sarcastic, witty characters are a must. As are hot guys. She’s working on the companion novel to her latest release and NA debut, Never Forget (Memories #1), and The Love Game (The Game, #1) will release on March 29th. She likes to be busy – unless busy involves doing the dishes. Ironically, that’s where most of her ideas come from. Her debut YA series, The Mauve Legacy, is an Apple iBooks Bestseller – and this makes Emma excited.

My review

I have to say, at first the book cover didn’t entice me into reading it, but because it was free and the synopsis intrigued me, I downloaded it. it had taken me a while to get round to reading this book as I thought it might be all about sex but I have to say I was drawn into it within the first few pages and it’s taken me a few hours to read as I couldn’t put it down. It deals with abuse, dominating power and control and love – not my usual reading material. I hated Alex (the father) from the start- how can a man even think about doing something so horrid to his family and have the nerve to do everything he does in the book! I was so glad of the ending, but I did wish it happened so much earlier on so he could piss off and let Kara (the mother) and Lauren live their life. I loved Lauren and how she would stand up to her dad and try to protect her mum and brother. Her relationship with Jesse was adorable, considering everything that was going on in both their life’s and the way Jesse was going out of his way to protect Lauren and try to end her father’s rein.

I don’t think I could ever forgive a friend that deceived me like Gina did to Lauren and I really wanted Lauren to stand her ground and be like ‘no way in hell am I forgiving you’ but then I suppose Gina was a victim of Alex’s and was lured into becoming his plaything when she was only 16 (shes now 22) but still you would never think to do what she did to a best friend! This book had me conveying all sorts of emotions throughout it and I just needed to finish it to know who would survive and I’m so glad that it ended how it did. Not sure how I’d feel if it didn’t end that way but i was in so much suspense over what would happen. But men like Alex do not deserve to be alive- to hire people to kill people, especially your family makes me so disgusted at certain members of the human race and I know it’s just a book but who’s to say this doesn’t happen in real life?! Other than my little rant, I shall definitely be recommending this book.
