My life changed forever the night my husband died.
I was left with a shattered heart, a heap of bills, and our daughter, EVERLEIGH. I don’t want to rely on anyone, least of all CREW GENTRY. He’s my first love and the man who almost destroyed me, the man who has let me down every time I’ve needed him.
But when tragedy strikes a second time, Crew just might be my only hope.

My life changed forever the night my brother died.
I was left with a guilty conscience, a pile of mistakes, and little else. I take care of JULIA GENTRY, my brother’s widow and the love of my life, and their daughter. I know she doesn’t want my help, but she gets it anyway. I owe her that.

When another disaster hits, I’m given the opportunity to make things right. I’m taking it. I'm willing to sacrifice it all

Shay’s Review

I just finished Sacrifice and I just loved it. Julia’s husband Gage has died and 2 years later she is still heartbroken. She has to deal with barely being able to pay bills and take care of her daughter, Everleigh. What makes matters worse is Crew, Gage’s brother and her one time ex is always trying to help. She doesn’t want his help. It’s bad enough he is responsible for Gage’s death even though it was unintentional. You can understand the bitterness and guilt that’s involved with them two. Something happens that will appear out of nowhere where both Julia and Crew will have to settle their differences to be able to get through this next obstacle. Just read this story. This will make your heart break while hoping and praying for a happily ever after.

I loved this story. The plot has been done before buts it’s done with originality that had me from the get go and leaving me dragging ass the next day because I couldn’t put this down. The characters were likable and had that vulnerability that make them real to me. I loved the secondary characters, they had a lot of depth and brought a lot to their story. This really is a gem and I am so lucky to have been able to read it.

Trust me, you must read this!


“She’s been missing him a lot lately.”

Julia’s voice is barely a whisper and my chest constricts. Our conversations don’t normally make it to discussing Gage unless we’re already arguing. The fact that she just brought it up shocks me and I’m not comfortable with it. I don’t know how to take it. I feel my jaw pulse with frustration and scramble to change the subject again.  “Why is it so chilly in here?”

Her smile disappears and she tugs her sweatshirt nervously. “I didn’t know it was.”

“How can you possibly not know?” I start to the thermostat across the room when she clears her throat.

“The heater isn’t working right. I asked Lane to come by and look at it earlier this week.”

“And he hasn’t been here yet?” I shoot her a look and she shakes her head. “He’ll be here tonight.” I dig my cell outta my pocket.

“Crew, don’t. Please. The last time you called my landlord he was a complete jerk to me for a couple of months. I just got on good terms with him again.”

I scroll through my contacts list, looking for his name.

“Crew …” I know her doe-eyes are pleading with me. I also know if I look up at her, I’ll be somewhat inclined to give in.

So I don’t.
