Entwine - Rebecca Berto - eBook

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00028]

Cover by: Berto Designs

Releasing in late November 2013

Sarah Langham’s life was the epitome of normal until her dad slept with another woman when she was sixteen. It ripped her family apart.

Twenty-two-year-old Sarah has it together, though.

Waiting at the train station to go home from her first day of her first proper job out of university, she spots a man.

He is an enigma to her. She’s drawn to him, with his square jaw; buzz of hair; and his tall, solid frame, seen under the contours of his business suit. And he’s been looking at her, too. Fate pulls them together that night on a whirlwind date, exceeding anything Sarah’s experienced before. He’s even more into her than she’s into him. Finally, she wants to trust a guy for the first time since she was sixteen.

But then they discover something.

Something that meant they were never two strangers at a train station.

And it threatens to tear their future apart before it, really, ever begins.

Paul was Katie’s rock for thirteen years, but then she watched him die.

By day, she is left with her daughter Ella’s questions about where Daddy went, and at night she’s consumed with nightmares of the moment he died. It isn’t long before Katie’s mother hints that her volatile lifestyle and developing drinking habits are no way to raise a little girl.

Through it all, her and Paul’s best friend, Liam is there. Grieving the death of both husband and friend, the time they spend together seems more intimate these days, and Katie soon stumbles into taboo territory: Liam might be in love with her.

Torn between Liam’s feelings and losing Ella, one night Katie runs.

Air. Space. Thinking time. That’s what she thinks she’s getting when she stumbles upon that party. In the morning, in a strange bed, she can’t remember the night before.

Pulling Me Under is raw in its brutality of love and pain, with slow-building suspense to a heart-stopping conclusion.

Being Kalli.v2.2.1Being Kalli by Rebecca Berto
Publication date: TBA
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Synopsis:

There are two things you should know about Kalli Perkins.

1. She’d rather do it in public than be alone with a guy.

2. She loves her little brothers more than her mom does.

Kalli doesn’t pretend to be a good girl. At nineteen, she’s never been in love and doesn’t ever intend to be. She has her issues handled. She’s managed to keep the secret of what happened to her nine years ago from her mother, although her mother’s usually high anyway and barely notices Kalli or her little brothers.

One night at a party, Kalli makes a bet with her friend, Nate, that could change everything. Their friend, Scout, tells them there’s no uncrossing the friendship line once it’s crossed—even though they were both drunk. But Kalli can’t imagine how anyone could want her damaged self for anything more.

She didn’t count on Nate. Nate’s very capable of satisfying her not only under her clothes, but in her heart, too.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

5 out of 5 Stars for Rebecca Berto’s Drowning in You (Finding Forever in Us #1)!!!

Oh, and in case you’re curious, love is nose to nose, cheek to cheek, two fingers to two fingers. And love is now the one thing I can’ step away from.

DrowningInYou AMAZON

Now, I know most of you checked out the “Drowning in You” cover reveal back in February, but for those of you who haven’t, here is a breif book description for you!

Secretly crushing

Crushed by a tragedy

Charlee May’s been crushing on Dexter Hollingworth since she was fifteen. Five years later, a horrific skiing disaster at Mason’s Ski Lift Resort leaves her millionaire dad critically injured and her mom dead at the hands of Dexter operating the lifts. Charlee is suddenly the sole caretaker for her little brother while their world falls apart.

Dexter couldn’t be more different from Charlee. He’s tattooed, avoids exclusive relationships and his Dad has a fair share of illegal dealings. With Dexter’s reputation, almost everyone believes he planned the Mason’s skiing disaster.

And after all these years he’s still crushing on Charlee May, the girl who’s too good for him.

When this cruel twist of fate ties Charlee’s family and Dexter’s reputation together, Charlee and Dexter wonder if their feelings are reciprocated, while Dexter discovers his dad is trying to steal the May’s millionaire fortune.

But like an addiction, one look, one touch, one taste—they’re hooked no matter the consequences.

Now that everyone has a little background, let me just say this…. OH MY GOD! I had some expectations with this book considering Rebecca’s last novel, while I enjoyed it, still had room for improvement. With “Drowning in You,” Rebecca absolutely blew me out of the water! I’m talking mind blown and left wanting more! Yes, there are a few places I could see a change or two, or maybe a different road that should have been taken, but you know what, the overall story and the characters just make it all worth while.

I just – I just want to be ten again rather then twenty and not haing to act like I’m in control and – oh, how I hate the “R” word – responsible.

Rebecca, once again, was able to make a heart wrenching story into one that leaves readers wanting more. Charlee May and Dexter Hollingworth both have to struggle through different, and yet very similar life changing situations (considering the two events are intertwined with each other), and at such young ages (20 & 21) I couldn’t even imagine what they had to go through, and yet, I felt like I was in their shoes as I was reading. Yes, I know that last sentence contradicts itself, and I don’t care, because its true. Rebecca was, once again, able to put her readers into the shoes of her characters, and that right there is a sign of a true writer in my opinion.

I only regret not being able to read it when I first purchased it! Once I had the time to sit and read, it took me a total of 2 days to finish, it was that good, I just couldn’t put it down! Rebecca, this is a shout out to you, never doubt your abilities as a writer! Just from the time between “Precise” and “Drowning in You,” your writing and story telling abilities have grown so much! Keep up the good work, and I can’t wait to dive right into your next piece of work!

“Precise” by Rebecca Berto

Precise (Photo credit: http://rebeccaberto.com/)

Precise (Photo credit: http://rebeccaberto.com/)

Well hello my dear readers! I have a new adventure for you all! So after posting my first blog on January 20th, 2013; one of my first followers was a young lady by the name of Rebecca Berto, aka: Novel Girl. Little did I know, she was a published author! That was quite exciting to find out! What I loved even more was the fact that she was a young author, one that I’ve never heard of! I have to say, I love finding new authors! (*hint hint*)

Well, enough of that, time to get to the book itself!

Precise was published in November 2012 and  takes readers on journey with a young newlywed girl by the name of Katie Anselin and her ‘Mommy’ issues. Now I know that most people would see that term as a negative one when it comes to reviews, but I find it very intriguing! The main character Katie knows her mother hates her and blames her for the lose of so many potential children (mother Rochelle has had many rough pregnancies that end in either miscarriages or stillborn). She has lived her life trying to appeal to her mother, and show her that she is worth loving.

Truth is, she fears her mother because she never knows when she will unleash her anger. It takes an unexpected pregnancy at the age of 22 for Katie to come to some form of realization as to why it is her mother hates her so much.

“In Rochelle’s quest for power, Katie and Paul’s baby is the pawn.” ~From Rebecca Berto’s Site: Novel Girl

To take this journey with Katie, well, you will just have to get the book and read it for yourself!

Now, what would I rank this book? After mulling it over for a while, I have to give the book a 4 out of 5 stars. This book ‘goes there’ and discusses a topic that I haven’t seen approached in a rather long time. Yes, we have a young love story, a young pregnancy story, but we don’t have that ideal relationship between mother and daughter. Yes, I’m sure many people will disagree with me on this, but I see this as a topic that is considered unapproachable. What I mean is that this topic is almost considered  taboo. Rebecca, I give you credit for taking the path less traveled!

The emotions that are presented are often a little confusing at times, but that only helps to put the reader in the character’s situation. Should Katie feel guilty for her mother’s condition? And in the end when she figures it out, we feel the sense of empowerment that she feels! Or at least I know I did! The emotions are raw and very much real. I’m sure there are many girls that feel like they have either been in or currently are in the shoes of the main character.

This book is relatable to a variety of audiences. As mentioned previously, there are girls everywhere in the same position as Katie. There are also boys in the same position as Paul and Liam (the husband and the best friend). We see people like this all the time and don’t even realize it. Who knows, this book could be a tool in the future empowerment of young men and women alike; much like the book “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” and many of its kind that, again, that aren’t afraid to ‘go there’ with the taboo and touchy subjects of our day and age.

The only real down side I found to this book is that I felt it was a little too rushed in the beginning. We are introduced to a character with a problem and then BAM! The big pregnancy comes along. Now I now this story was the backstory to Rebecca’s book, “Pulling Me Under,” but I still think there is a little room for improvement in the beginning!

But other then that, I have to say, I’m very glad that this author crossed my path and I am very excited about reading her next novel! If you want to learn more about the author and or how to get your hands on a copy of the book, please give her pages a visit!
