Easy Sacrifice was a nice quick read. It wasn't one of my favorites but I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to others. Ty was the type of Hero that one minute you love the guy and the next you want to strangle him for being so damn stubborn. Jessa was the type of heroine I love to read about. She was strong willed and independent but wasn't afraid to show her vulnerable side. All in all it was a good book, check it out if you haven't read Anna Brooks yet. You for sure have to check out her It's Not Personal series if you're new to Anna.
“I’d give you the world if I could. I’d kill for you; I’d die for you. But the one thing I won’t do for you is stay.” Anna Brooks dazzles once again with an enthralling romantic suspense tale about two worlds colliding and the noble sacrifices one man makes in the name of love! From the moment 16-year-old Jessa locked eyes with enigmatic loner Ty in history class, she was instantly smitten. There was just something about him, a powerfully magnetic lure that could not be denied. "He has to feel that. The connection. The spark. It’s undeniable, and it’s something that I don’t think will ever be comparable with anyone else.” Over the next decade he would mysteriously pop in and out of her life, swooping to the rescue when she needed him the most, but never stick around for long. But even in the fleeting stolen moments they shared, their attraction was all-consuming and EXPLOSIVE! Although Ty knew he'd never be good enough for the pure-hearted beauty, he vowed to protect her to his last breath. And that vow came to a shattering fruition one fateful night when a precarious situation turned deadly and he took the fall for Jessa. He tragically spent six long, torturous years locked up in jail for a crime he did not commit, but never regretted it for a single moment. Ahh...the angst! The passion and peril! The torturous, star-crossed love! Anna Brooks has an innate gift for hooking the reader into the hearts and psyches of her characters from page one, and I was captivated by this story throughout. This book was chock full of ELECTIFYING sparks, intense feels, drama, treachery, numerous twist and turns, and edge your seat excitement. The overarching plot was seamless and reached a shattering climax that left me breathless!! There is nothing more intoxicating for me than a brooding Alpha protector who sacrifices everything for the woman he loves, and Ty fit the bill perfectly. Holy moly did I ADORE this hero!! He was such a delicious “manly man”…strong, macho, ruggedly sexy, fiercely possessive, noble to the core, and so sweet and doting with Jessa he melted my heart. There was absolutely nothing he wouldn’t do for the woman he loved!! In an ironic twist, as much as she thought he saved her, in reality she saved him too, over and over again. Sighhhh! How utterly romantic is THAT?!! Yet life was far from a bed of roses for Jess and Ty and I was constantly gripped with fear of what horrible thing would befall them next, courtesy of baddie gangster Marco who had Ty in his pocket. All in all, I truly relished this suspenseful, emotion-packed romance!! However, it took me a little while to connect with this couple because of all the stops and starts along the way. I just didn’t quite feel the whole instant “two souls coming together” love from the onset. It seemed a bit forced in the beginning and I did not feel it on a visceral level until a third of the way in. But as the romance progressed, and I realized where the gifted Ms. Brooks was headed with this innovative story, I did eventually fall under the irresistible spell of this star-crossed duo and was on pins and needles hoping they'd get their hard earned HEA. So if you are looking for a hyper-sexy, gritty romantic suspense tale with a to-die-for Alpha hero, sassy heroine, heartachy feels, and drama galore then I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
This author knows how to write and she knows how to write well. The love, the loss, angst, the drama... she does it all so well!! You can feel it all and this book had so many feelings throughout it. Jessa and Ty have one crazy crazy love story. Can a bad boy from the wrong side of time really be this good, pure girl next door knight to come save the day? Can he do it more than once? He is there when she really needs him the most, but can they make it work? Last?
What can I say about Anna Brooks and her ability to tell a story that I haven't already said? She writes the most incredible, drama filled, intense, love filled books! Easy Sacrifice is her newest stand alone and while it's different from her previous books, this is probably my favorite to date. It's suspenseful, hot, swoony and just overall extremely well written. Ty is a serious alpha male who did it for me in a big big way. The love he had for Jessa, even though he knew he couldn't have her, was real, deep and dominate. He felt drawn to her from the moment he saw her. And no amount of time away from her changed that. He would do anything for her. And that means anything. Jessa was in love with a man she barely knew and couldn't have. But that didn't stop her from wanting him. She needed him like she needed the air to breathe, but he was continuously just out of her reach. When she finds out why he's been avoiding her for so long, she finds out just how deep his feelings for her run. If you love an intense, suspenseful, heart fluttering romance, I promise you, this one is for you! Happy reading!
