EVERYTHING CHANGED IN AN INSTANT.
I thought I knew what was important, but one phone call sent my life into a tailspin. Alone and afraid, I clung to the one man I shouldn’t. I was warned about him and told to stay away. “He’s dangerous,” they said. But the man who could hurt me the most, gave me the greatest comfort. “He’s not who they think,” I told myself. But just like an illusion, things are never what they seem.
What Worked For Me:
Let me just say, I’m a fan of Chelle’s books. However, while excited to read this book I wasn’t jumping on pins and needles because the blurb just didn’t tell me enough to get me excited in a huge way. A BIG MISTAKE I shall never make again! Because this book was raw and very, very real. Callie, our heroine, is facing a very real battle in her life (since I do not want to give anything away, I will not reveal what it is). Her struggle is heartbreaking and gut-wrenching and emotional and I can honestly say it has been years since I have been moved in such a profound and thought provoking way. She was charming, bitchy, and loving and I have never cheered so hard or been so moved by a heroine in all my years of reading. Her hero, Bruno, is her perfect counterpart for her fight. He is amazing and generous and written so beautifully that I think every woman deserves a man like this, most especially when the stakes in life are as high as they are for Callie. Together, this couple is masterful in Callie’s battle and the emotional mind field written in this book is unlike anything I have ever read and they are sure to stay with me no matter what books I read in the future. I must add as a side note….Bruno’s family. I love his family. His sister especially but even more so, his parents. With such strong emotions being evoked in this book, the Bruno parents provide a breathtaking amount of laughter and warmth that make me even happier for Callie and her happy ending. I have no doubt that Enshrine, with its smoking hot cover and heart-stopping yet awe-inspiring love story, will be one of my top 5 reads not only of the entire year, but most definitely my entire life. Kudos, Chelle, for telling us a story showing love can endure all things and reminding us it’s the little things that make up an amazing life!
