Roxy (Pandemic Sorrow) by Stevie J Cole Blog Tour with 4 star #Review

Title: Roxy (Pandemic Sorrow Book 3) 
Author: Stevie J Cole 
Book Tour: May 11 – May15 
Hosted by: SBB Promotions

My life had been no fairy tale. Actually, growing up, it had been something more like a nightmare, which is why I ended up so hard. When you don't want to hurt having the ability to be numb is your best defense mechanism. And for a long time all I was doing was existing.

Jag Steele, the lead singer of the international rock band Pandemic Sorrow, was the epitome of everything I despised: arrogant, entitled, but the thing I hated most about him was that he was an addict. Drugs had been the demon that had ruined everything in my life, and anyone who had a love affair with them pretty much made my stomach turn. It brought up memories I wanted to stay buried. Needless to say, I wasn't exactly a fan of Jag.

Funny thing is, people aren't always who you expect them to be. Never in a million years would I have thought the night I meet Jag would have any significance on the rest of my life, but it did.

I found out that sometimes something that screams utter destruction might actually be your saving grace.

Some people may say our story is too screwed up to be a romance, but for two broken people, we made the pieces fit together perfectly. 

This book was much more intense than I expected it to be. Once I started reading, I found it difficult to put down. 

The second chapter was the most difficult to read. It covered an emotional day for Roxy and included some flashbacks to more abusive times in her past. It gives the reader just how hard of an upbringing she has had and why being with an addict is so difficult for her. However, I also feel that it helped her be more understanding with Jag. She knows how difficult it is to resist temptation all the time and she was there to support him, most of the time. It can be too much for anyone. Jag was lucky he found Roxy, any other woman might not have been as supportive. There were so many times my heart just broke for Roxy. You could feel her turmoil. Her head was telling her to run, as fast as she could. But her heart, well, it was drawn to Jag. There were so many ups and downs in their relationship that would drive most people apart. But when the love it true....

My heart broke for Jag. He's worked so hard to become who he is but sometimes it's just too much. He just wants someone to like him for him. The effort he puts into gaining Roxy's trust shows just how important she is to him. 

I enjoyed this roller coaster of a book. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Rush (Book 2)

I grew up in the southern United States, and am still stuck here. The basics: I'm eccentric, I'm slightly obsessive, and I've been called a pervert. I love writing because it is nothing short of a magic trick. It pulls someone else into your mind and holds them there. Fair warning: my mind is pretty twisted, so watch out.
