Blog Tour & Review/Giveaway: Destructive Silence by L.U. Ann



Synopsis:
If you never speak of the past, can it be erased?

Lacey Edwards has a past.

A past which changed her life forever.

A past she is desperate to forget.

Lacey is quiet and reserved compared to her best friend Becca Fox. They became instant friends when Lacey moved to Maryland nine years ago. Becca helped pull Lacey out of her internal shell to experience life. By high school, Lacey was active in the club scene and would occasionally have to drag Becca with her. One night, Lacey realized she might be able to run from her past with the help of Becca and one steamy Caine Rogers.

Lacey didn't know, until it was too late, how feelings, honesty, heartbreak and life altering events can change a person. Lacey has Becca’s support but will that be enough.

Will Lacey sacrifice her own happiness to do what is expected?

Our Review:
5 Stars

OMG!!! What did I just read? I literally had to stop twice before finishing this book. I was expecting girl meets bad boy, bad boy saves her from her past then they live happily ever after, next book please! Man was I wrong.  
I was so frustrated with Lacey for being so na├»ve (this is me being nice), that I wanted to reach inside my kindle and slap some sense into her. Caine is a total douche yet Lacey would make excuses for him. I kept asking myself why would the author make her so weak, WHY??? So I came to the conclusion that soon enough her knight in shining armor would rescue her then everything would get better, now halfway thru the book and it still didn’t happen. The relationship between her and Caine, if one can even call it that, would just get even worse by the minute.
So I just had enough I couldn’t finish it, I gave up. Then I figured out it is based on a true story, not just any story, it is L.U. Ann’s story. Wow!!! Then this book took a whole new meaning. As a child I had seen the aftermath of these events. Never in a million years would I have imagined how broken a person is to allow a manipulative A** hole to run her life.

Destructive silence deals with a very sensitive subject of abuse, not only mentally but physically as well. I am looking forward to Lacey finding her HEA and hopefully it happens in the next installment. Since this book ends in a Cliffhanger!

Book Trailer:


Meet the Author:

Author L.U. Ann moved to Colorado from the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two children. Life in Colorado is so much different. In Maryland, you would find her in the garden tending to her vegetables and flowers, sea glass and shark tooth hunting once a week, and enjoying the kids swimming in the backyard. Her life took a drastic change when her family moved to their own “Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my!

She tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior.

At night, you’ll find her begging the kids to go to bed so that she can catch up on the latest book before her sister can. Yes, she is an avid reader who escapes her chaotic but wonderful home to the feisty depths of romance land in search of her newest book boyfriend. Shh, don’t tell her husband.

She is an artist by the grace of God. She worked as a set designer for six years, helping establish a local children's theatre where she was the scenery artist, set, and prop designer. Before that, you would find her covered in paint, so engrossed in painting a mural that time didn't exist. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure.

Destructive Choices is the second book in The Destructive Series. Each book will hit its reader with lots of angst hoping for a happily ever after.
