A love story born out of chaos.
Where light and dark both meet.
Every story demands to be told.
This is mine.
I crave normal with a fierce passion that makes absolutely no sense.
The sheltered life I've lived doesn't even begin to cover it.
Fear was taught.
Fear was learned.
But I want to be brave, fearless even.
I want to live.
And life doesn't wait for me to be ready, it just provides.
A guy so gorgeous he steals my breath away.
He jeopardizes all the tiny little barriers built around me.
He wants me.
He's determined to have me.
But he's not safe.
Not the guy I should give my heart to.
But he's good at ripping down walls.
This is my story.
The truly transcending.
And it's all because...

Because of Him is a gritty, yet thoughtful story. It isn't just one thing. It is a melding of so many different emotions and topics. It was spun perfectly. You will enjoy reading about real life topics, being on the edge of your seat from the suspense and the love. It all mixes perfectly between dark topics and lighter ones. It does cover tough topics so heed the warning if you aren't comfortable reading about them. This New Adult genre book is told in a dual POV and is a complete standalone. I look forward to reading more of the author's books since this my first experience reading one of her books.
I’m a new reader of Terri E. Laine, but the blurb and the cover especially drew me in to the book. Once I’d opened it, there was no going back from this thrilling romantic story. It’s a mix of dark and light, from both characters and I was hooked from the first word. There’s a world of mystery in here, you’re not sure who is who for a while, as the story has some flashbacks to the past. Reagan and Tade are quite a pair, both hiding their true selves and their murky past from everyone. There’s layers upon layers to them that get revealed the longer you read.But deep down it’s a gritty heartfelt tale filled with a lot of twists and turns so expertly penned you just have to keep flipping a page. One more page, one more chapter and then I’ll go to bed. I told myself that over and over until there was no more to read. The secondary cast of characters supported the story equally as well as Tade and Reagan did and made you want to know more about them too. I’m sure you’ll agree with me once you have your own copy.
Holy cow, this book was completely unexpected! It was a little darker than I thought it would be but completely sucked me in from the beginning. I read it all in a day because I couldn't put it down. The story had a lot of twists and turns and at the end I thought to myself, "What a ride!" The writing is beautiful and the story is different than others I've read. I was completely lost in Tade and Reagan's story. Well done, well done!
