✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Family Ties Release Blitz

Release Date: June 21, 2018
Cover Design: Wicked by Design



With a history like ours, the meaning of the word family tended to tangle into something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our twisted family tree.
I wasn’t her brother. They weren’t my parents. Not that it mattered… She was off limits. Portia was my friend. Then my foster sister. And she’d always be the love of my life.



Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Family Ties took me by surprise. I'm not sure exactly what I expected, but this wasn't it, and I was completely okay with that. The story is emotional from the very beginning and while I usually gravitate toward a bit of action and a faster pace, this one is more character driven and slows things down. Even so, there was just something so thoroughly compelling about this story that I didn't want to set it aside for those daily tasks, I didn't want to turn out the light and go to sleep. I wanted to see where things would end up for Jude and Portia. There are hints of the taboo in the blurb, and if that is worrisome, set that aside because I didn't find that at all. What I did find was a beautifully written love story and the emotions run the gamut. Jude and Portia's romance is one of loss, grief, young love, attraction, uncertainty, and finally, hope. The book is a little out of the norm for me, but I am so glad that I had the privilege to read it.
