TBR Thursday [31]

Posted September 15, 2016 by Kim in TBR Thursday / 4 Comments

Happy Thursday! You know what that means… time for a new TBR Thursday!

My feature was totally influenced by Teresa @ Readers Live a Thousand Lives and her On My Shelf posts. I love love love the idea of spotlighting a title from my shelf (or, you know, my eReader) and seeing what you think about it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? Sometimes it seems like everyone is reading the same books at the same time and older titles have a way of just fading from the radar. I love this way of featuring an older title and, of course, getting a chance to talk about it with other bloggers and readers. And I want to force myself to do it regularly, hence the TBR Thursday title.

If you’d like to join in on the fun, I’ve created a banner you can use – or you can always make your own! (Right click and save as to grab the image for yourself.) Share your links in the comments and I’ll swing by and visit!

Now, let’s talk about this week’s pick, shall we?

TBR Thursday [31]If You Leave by Courtney Cole
Series: Beautifully Broken #2
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: August 6, 2013
Publisher: Forever
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

26-year old Gabriel Vincent is a badass hero. Or he used to be, anyway. As an ex-Army Ranger, Gabe never thought he needed anyone. But after one horrible night in Afghanistan scars him in a way that he can't get past, he needs someone who can help him heal...even if he doesn't realize it.

25-year old Madison Hill doesn't need anybody...or so she thinks. She grew up watching her parents' messed-up abusive relationship and she knows there's no way in hell that she's ever letting that happen to her.

They don't know it in the beginning, but Gabriel and Madison will soon develop a weakness: Each other.

But Gabriel's got a secret, a hidden monster that he's afraid Maddy could never overcome... And Maddy's got issues that she's afraid Gabe will never understand. They quickly realize that they need each other to be whole, but at the same time they know that they've got demons to fight.

And the problem with demons is that they never die quietly.

I bought this one FOREVER ago, after reading and really enjoying the first book in the series, If You Stay. But, you know how it goes… other things come up and suddenly it’s just left sitting on your shelf or ereader. Have I mentioned I suck at series? Since this is a standalone series, I think I’d be ok to jump back in without reading the first book again. I’m just wondering if I should. I mean, it still sounds good…
