Review Tour + #Giveaway: Willow's Ridge by Gisèle L Grieves @GoddessFish


Willow's Ridge

by Gisèle L Grieves

GENRE: Romance


BLURB:


Life as a young adult can be exciting. We seem braver and are willing to explore life, love, friendship and our sexuality. Ally is no exception.


Journey through Ally's life as she goes through trials and tribulations, love and happiness, fear and devastation. Just when life for Ally seems to be nearly perfect, one phone call changes everything.


Excerpt:

It is the perfect place—just a little pub off the beaten path. But they have beer and whisky, and they have amazing burgers. Something that needs to be known about me is my love of food. I love to cook, and I love to eat. Thank God for my ADD, which makes me go nonstop and melts the pounds away as I enjoy my food.

We talk and laugh for a few more hours, enjoying each other’s company at the pub. It feels so easy, which is a little scary. I’m waiting for the weirdo to come out; no one can be this perfect.

After dinner, he drives me back to the park to get my car. I left it there when we decided to drive together to the pub. He is such a gentleman; he runs around the car insisting on opening my door. He takes my hand to help me out and walks me to my SUV.

I stand there, palms starting to sweat, unsure how this date will end. The silence is killing me. I want to know what he is thinking. Finally, he turns to me and reaches for my hand. He looks into my eyes, reaches behind me and pulls me into a passionate kiss. I am not expecting it, but oh, when those lips make contact with mine, my body catches fire. His kiss is passionate but so gentle. When he finally loosens his hold, I wrap my arms around his neck, stand on my tippy toes and pull him in for a more urgent kiss. I gently thrust my tongue into his mouth, tasting the ice cream he had for dessert. My body is aching for more. I want to see and feel more of him. His body tells me he also wants more. Even through his jean shorts, I can feel his hardness pulsing against my stomach.

He finally breaks away, almost gasping for air. He looks a little frazzled but is grinning from ear to ear.

Ally, I want to see you again. I had an amazing time and would love the opportunity to wine and dine you properly.”

I am out of breath. Of course I want to see him again.

I would love that,” I respond a little breathlessly.


My Review:

When I picked up Willow’s Ridge and started reading it I didn’t know what to expect. I kept trying to put my own twist on it but what kept going through my mind was not what happened at all. I will have to admit Willow’s Ridge really surprised me. There were really so many twists that kept taking my ideas of what it was about and throwing them out the window.

Surprises that kept me hooked and flipping the pages as fast as I could to see how it was all going to turn out. And believe me, it definitely did not turn out the way I expected. Willow’s Ridge has romance and love on more than one level so to speak.

There were a couple of big twists that had me squalling like a baby. So, so sad! Now don’t get me wrong there were a lot of happy times as well. A lot of happy times for Ally and James. Ally and James are both such amazing people with lots of feelings, good feelings. I wanted to just wrap Ally and James up in a great big ole hug.

I really enjoyed Willow’s Ridge even with it being so sad. Gisèle L Grieves’ writing has touched my heart and I can’t wait to read more of her work. Willow’s Ridge was written so well and such a great story I can’t wait to read Country Hearts.

I highly recommend Willow’s Ridge to everyone. But I would like to give a little warning concerning Willow’s Ridge it is a little disturbing and tragic at the end that could be very upsetting for some.
