leave her family and friends behind. She had the perfect life; she had two best
friends whom meant the world to her. She had a great boyfriend, she cared a lot
for him and was worried about what would happen once she left for NYC and left
before dating, she suspected he was unfaithful. It hurt her more than she
thought it would when she catches him in the act and found out it had been
going on for months. The one person she thought, would never be there for her
was now her rock. This man she never thought she would feel anything for was
now whom she admired, and wanted in her life. What was going to happen once she
she seen a familiar face in NYC and had met new ones. It couldn’t get any
better, she had met great friends and stayed in contact with the man she had
fallen for. Things change when tragedy leaves Lila feeling broken and not
knowing where to turn, when she has lost two of the most important people in
her life. What is she to do now that all her dreams where fading. Could she
move on and be happy, or should she just give up hope.
these songs in Embracing Love. I have listened to all of
them while writing, some of them over and over. I would open the playlist and
get lost in the music while writing. Each song has lyrics that fit with the
characters, and their story. There are a couple songs that mean more than
others. When I say I had them on repeat, they were on repeat for hours! My
husband is thankful for my ear buds.

My review –
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I need a Liam. Or an Evan! Both amazing book boyfriends and, for once, I’m not on a “team”!
My overall feelings towards this book were that it has an amazing and touching storyline but the writing could have been better.
I got confused in parts where time had lapsed suddenly and at times I wasn’t sure which dialogue was whose but I grasped the storyline quite quickly.
I feel for the characters in the book. They found themselves in all sorts of life changing situations and they weren’t all good ones. My emotions were all over the place!
I got so damn angry I wanted to throw my Kindle!!
Twists and turns at every corner and a blooming stunning cliffhanger leave me needing more but some changes to the style of writing need to be made! I managed to look past it to the nitty gritty of where Delisa Lynn wanted to take us and have awarded 3.5 stars!
