Blurb
The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar. Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born. Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather. The two men spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her heart away from the other. Eventually, they all went their separate ways.  Our grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest business rivals in history. Our fathers continued the family tradition of feuding.  And then Weston and I…

Book Blurb:

A second chance romance. What happens when you fall for the boy next door? Bea Norwood had the market on normal. Drama free life? Check. A single-mother who doubled as her confidant and partner in crime? Check. A neighbor and best friend she trusted more than anyone? Check. But that was until the day her mother remarried. The day that changed everything. When her best friend's cousin, Liam Falcon, is sent to live with his aunt and uncle to clean up his act, Bea finds herself falling for the boy next door. With their hearts so infinitely entwined, Bea turns to Liam as her only escape from her new step-brother's daily torment at home. Bea thought their love could conquer anything. But she was wrong. Love was for fools, and she was the biggest fool of them all. When Liam left Lakeport, he took her heart with him, shattering the organ to pieces. Six years later, Liam takes a trip back to Lakeport to visit his family, and to see HER. His first love. The girl who holds his heart. The same girl who shattered it six years ago without looking back. Liam is hell-bent on seeing Bea again after six years, but what he finds tears his heart in half. Bea Norwood is a shell of the girl he fell in love with. Underneath the baggy clothes, and pale skin, he knows she's still in there somewhere, he just needs to find her. Liam will stop at nothing to win his girl back, but sometimes, ignorance is bliss, and Liam isn't prepared for Bea's truth.

MY REVIEW


First of all, let me start by saying I have NEVER read a novel that has torn me up so much inside and yet brought me so much happiness! This was a tough read, but yet so rewarding! Ache tells the story of how true love and determination can help someone overcome such devastation as abuse. This was so much more than Bea and Liam’s story! This is real life people! Ache is a story I will not be forgetting anytime soon because it touched me so much more than I can explain!

Thank you S.M. Soto for such a beautifully written story and not giving up by leaving it after being told it was too closely written about real life! There are so many people I know you have touched by this story including me. So many that have thought after any form of abuse that there’s nowhere else to go from the pain. This story will give you the hope you desperately need to know you’re not broken forever!

Bea is a carefree teenager that loves Astronomy, her best friend, and her mother. When she meets Liam, her best friends cousin she knows she will never be the same again. Together they become friends and fall completely in love with each other. After Liam realizes to reach his dream by playing professional baseball he’s going to have to move back home. Bea is devastated and after that night she will never be the same.

Although what Bea experiences, you will see she really is a strong, courageous woman. I could keep going but if I go any further with my thoughts it will be a total spoiler. If you’re thinking you can’t read anything like this because these are touchy topics, put that behind you! In the end you will be glad you read it! Grab some tissues and a bottle of wine and dive in!
