*Release Day Blitz and Review* Be My December by Rachel Brookes

Title: Be My December
Author: Rachel Brookes
Release Date: August 28th
 Genre: Contemporary Romance

I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl.
December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.
The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.
The dream of a ‘happily ever after’ was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.
The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.

I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.
I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.
I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.
The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.

A girl who can’t say no.
A guy who craves redemption.
A chance encounter?

It all comes down to this.
One question.
One month.

Be My December?


ReviewReviewed by Nancy ☆☆☆☆ 4 Stars!

Eden Rivers is a young college girl with her whole life ahead of her having all the typical hopes and dreams that most girls her age have.  Then one horrible night it is all taken away from her in such a vile way.

“In the minutes that followed, as the perfect world I knew was destroyed, I ceased to exist as Eden Rivers….. From that moment, I would become a yes girl- as saying no seemed to be the worse decision I ever made.”

Ky Crawford is a young successful man who has everything he could possibly want and yet he can’t get rid of his demons, he lives his life filled with guilt and remorse.  Guilt because he couldn’t save the one girl he always knew was his.

Ky makes it his sole mission to help Eden find herself again and you will find yourself routing for him the whole time.

“My urge to kiss you, to touch you, to fuck you overwhelms me.  I crave being near you; I need to be near you.  You are completely and utterly destroying me Miss Rivers, and I couldn’t be happier about that.”

Their relationship will make you feel so many different emotions at some points you won’t know whether you are coming or going and the whole time you will just be wishing you could reach in and tell them both everything is going to be okay.

“I will make you realize that saying no is your given right and that saying yes can still be a beautiful thing”

I really enjoyed meeting the characters in this book.  While there was much sadness in the story, there were also great friendships present and formed that allowed for just enough happy moments as well.  This was my first book by Rachel Brookes, but I can honestly say it won’t be my last.

Rachel Brookes lives on the east coast of Australia where beaches, kangaroos and surfers roam free. Writing angst ridden love stories with a pinch of craziness, a dash of drama, a cup of romance, a spoonful of sexiness and delicious men to season is what she loves to do. Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can’t remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that’s because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop.  When she does step away from her laptop, she spends her time with her amazing family or attached to her kindle catching up with all of her favorite book boyfriends.  Books currently available include The Breathe Series – Just Breathe, Breathless and Breathe Again. The standalone, Be My December, will be released August 2014.
