Seared on My Soul
by Cole Gibsen
Publication Date: June 27, 2016
Genres: New Adult, Entangled Embrace, Contemporary Romance
Synopsis: She’s so young, so full of life…
I couldn’t let her die…
Even if she made the world’s worst coffee.
Emily Garret never asked to be rescued, let alone by a walking JCrew ad whose idea of fun is probably managing his stock portfolio and watching the nightly news. Then again, she never thought she would wind upside-down in a ditch after a night having a little too much fun.
Reece Montgomery never planned on being anyone’s hero, especially the foul-mouthed, bleach-blonde barista from the local coffee shop. He thinks there’s more to Emily than her tattoos, and lip ring, but getting close means letting her into his past and meeting his ghosts.
And he’s not sure she’s ready for that battlefield.
This was my first Cole Gibsen book and wow what a book!
Emily is an immature woman who is basically spiraling out of control, flitting from one thing to another to just enjoy life. Or so she says. Reece ends up saving Emma (you have to read it to find out from what).
Reece and Em’s story is powerful. Reece helps Em find herself and what she wants to do and Em helps Reece with his PTSD. She is the first person who doesn’t look at him like a freak when he has an episode and just tries to take care of him.
This was an HEA BUT it took Reece and Em some time to get there. And that just made the story that much more effective. I will definitely be reading more of Cole Gibsen’s books in the future, that’s for sure!
ABOUT COLE GIBSEN
At seventeen Cole found herself homeless with only a beat-up Volkswagen Jetta and a bag of Goodwill clothing to her name. The only things that got her through the nights she spent parked in truck stops and cornfields were the stacks of books she checked out from the library along with her trusty flashlight. Because of the reprieve these books gave her from her troubles, Cole vowed to become a writer so she could provide the same escape to readers who needed a break the reality of their own lives.
