Book Review: Lifers

Lifers by Jane Harvey-Berrick: After eight years in prison, twenty-four year old Jordan Kane is the man everyone loves to hate.

Forced to return to his hometown while on parole, Jordan soon learns that this small town hasn't changed since he was carted off to juvie all those years ago. He is the local pariah, shunned by everyone, including his own parents. But their hatred of him doesn't even come close to the loathing he feels every time he looks in the mirror.

Working odd jobs for the preacher lady, Jordan bides his time before he can leave this backwards town. But can distance erase the memories that haunt him? Trapped in the prison of his own mind Jordan wonders if the pain of living will ever subside?

Torrey Delaney is new in town and certainly doesn't behave in a way the locals believe a preacher’s daughter should. Her reputation for casual hook-ups and meaningless sex is the talk of the town. Add that to her budding friendship with the hardened ex-con handyman, and the good Reverend is less than thrilled with her estranged daughter’s path.

As friendship forms, is it possible for two damaged people who are afraid to love take their relationship to the next level? Can Torrey live with Jordan’s demons, and can Jordan break through Torrey's walls? With the disapproval of a small town weighing heavily on them, will they find their place in the world? Can they struggle against the odds, or will their world be viciously shattered?

Is love a life sentence?

Due to scenes of a sexual nature, not recommended for under 18.

Emma's thoughts: 5 Bright Shining Stars!

I was given an ARC of Lifers in return for an honest review and boy I did I love it, amazeballs!

Ok, so I'm gonna keep this review as spoiler free as possible, don't want to be spoiling it for anyone.

This book is about the very hot, brooding, sexy Jordan Kane who has been in prison for 8 years and is forced back to his hometown on parole and trust me when I say small towns don't change, people treat him like something you would scrape of your shoe but that's nothing compared to how Jordan feels about himself - I seriously wanted to hug and comfort him (amongst other things) lol.

Then we meet the sassy Torey Delaney, she's new to town and the Preacher's daughter, she is definitely not your typical idea of what a Preacher's daughter should be like but she has issues and insecurities of her own.

So Jordan becomes the Preacher's handyman, friendship forms between him and Torrey as does their feelings and some major sexual tension..... so I'm gonna leave it there and not tell u anymore, what I will say is READ IT!!

I so loved this book, I was completely hooked, I couldn't put it down but when I had to I was still thinking about it and was trying to work out what was gonna happen next. LIFERS pulled at my heartstrings in a major way and I am so glad Jane let me read it.

So to Jane Harvey-Berrick....... congratulations on another fantastic book, you truly are an amazing author and I can't wait to get my hands on your next book, don't keep us waiting too long!
