Let it be me - Tour

Let It Be Me
By: Toni Aleo


Do you see that woman there?
The one with long, wavy blond hair and blue eyes that used to sparkle?
That’s me, Violet Moore.
Do you see those men over there?
One is my husband, Rob.
A man who claimed he loved me, but proved his fist loved me more.
The other is Tucker McCloud, my savior and confidant.
I'm torn between what's right and my own fear.
But not anymore.
I’m taking my life back now.
I will fight back.
I will be happy.

Review - 
I have been reading Toni Aleo since her very first book came out, Her hockey boys drew me in and I was left with a new author crush who new exactly how I liked my books, she is also an excellent writer and I have been DYING to read something more from her and she gave it and more in this book.

This is a highly emotional book that will literally take you on the ride of your life - You will cry, feel like the world is ending then leaving you swooning and full of hope.

"Get a blanket and maybe a glass of wine, you’re going to need it, because my story isn’t a happy one, well no, I take that back. It can be happy, I can be happy; I just have to get there. I have to fight for it. So sit back and let me explain how the fight was woken inside me. "

It starts and ends with Tucker McCloud. 

Oh My Tucker. Can we just take a moment to appreciate him for a moment? . . . There I feel better already. He is the only guy capable of saving the Violet and the hell that has become her life. 

Rob, I cannot express with you how much I hated him - I literally wanted to smack him in the face or cower in fear - The way he treated Violet left me feeling sick and uneasy, he was a bully. 

See that woman there?

The one with beautiful long wavy blonde hair that is cascading down her shoulders with her arms up protecting her eyes and face? 
That’s me. Violet Moore. 

You will learn so much from this book - why situations such as Violets can be so hard and why walking out the door isn't always the easiest option and that was a tough thing for me to grasp in fact there where moments where I felt down right livid but in the end I understood why.

Tucker was literally a saving grace, without him I think my heart might have been torn out and shredded as I read the book - he was literally the light in the worlds darkest situation. I have literally fallen in love with him just from the beautiful way he was written. 

He’s beautiful. Light brown hair that looks like he spent most of the day running his fingers through it, whiskey colored brown eyes that really I am getting lost in right now. He has dark brown scruff on his chin and a little along his upper lip and oh Lord, his lips. They are full, a light peach color that are currently curved in a way that makes my unused girlie parts scream.

This is a book you need to read when there is nothing else to distract you - I was not able to put it down (well maybe to find a box of tissues and chocolate) and I don't think you will be able to either. 

I really did feel for Violet, I wanted to take away her pain and let her hide out from the world from the comfort of my living room. You will feel what she is feeling and that is all thanks to the amazing writing style that is Toni - I feel a sense of pride with this book I always knew she could write anything she set her mind to and this just proves it. 

6/5 stars, this is going to be on my books of the year list for sure.
