*Review* Heart of Marley by T.K. Leigh

Heart of Marley

Reviewer: Angie
Rating: 5 Stars

Heart-wrenching, but worth every tear or sob! T.K. has, once again, written about a topic that needs attention. She does it in a way that informs, entertains, AND makes you care! I lost sleep over this book, even waking in the middle of the night (once I finally found sleep). Marley's story stays with you, haunting your dreams. Marley's torment and the abuse she went through as a child will break your heart over and over again. Her story will, hopefully, make you less judgmental of others, realizing we all have struggles and come with baggage that comes in different forms. This book is not for the faint of heart, but the abuse scenes are written with as much dignity as one could write about such horror. Nothing is too graphic, but you still feel the trauma and terror.

Cam is the hero we all need in our life. The guy that stands up for those without voice. If possible, after A Beautiful Mess series and Heart of Light, I love Cam even more. That being said, this can be a stand alone book. After reading it, though, you'll want more of Cam. 

I can recommend this book highly enough!!!

I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this book in return for an honest review. I, honestly, loved every emotional minute of it!


To the moon and back...

From the stars to the ocean...

That was Marley and Cameron Bowen's secret code. 

Twins born just five minutes apart, they have the perfect life...Until tragedy strikes just weeks after their eighth birthday and their father is killed by a drunk driver. Having trouble coping with the loss of her soul mate, their mother tries to find comfort in drugs and alcohol...And an abusive man with a penchant for underage girls.

No longer able to stand listening to his sister's screams and cries every night for nearly three years, Cam takes matters into his own hands and they're finally able to escape the nightmare. 

They're finally able to start over...

But the nightmare still haunts Marley. The years go on and she is forced to put on a smile, making everyone think that she is the perfect, well-adjusted teenager that she is supposed to be...Until she is faced with a painful reminder of her past during her senior year of high school and she's no longer able to keep on the mask that she has been compelled to wear. 

Heart of Marley is a prequel to T.K. Leigh's Heart of Light
