Back to You signed books (as in more than one) GIVEAWAY!

Many of you are well aware of my mass pimpin of this amazing book all over the internet. A TBR buster! However, many of you are rolling around in devastation because it's not available for nook! The reason of the non-availability is because it is enrolled in KDP prime making it free for prime members. However, part of the contract states that it can't be available in other formats while enrolled. This is only temporary and will change in about two months. I know. I know. SAD DAY!! Well...be sad no more. 

Because of the incredible generosity of Priscilla Glenn, Tough Critic Book Reviews will be giving away not one...not two...but three autographed copies of Back to You...THREE. All copies will be first editions! The cover will be changing soon so you will be some of the select few to own a copy with the original cover. The only requirement is to "like" Back to You on facebook and that's it!! Of course there will be several ways to earn bonus entries, but it's super easy!

Own a kindle? Own a nook? Already own the book? Doesn't matter. ANYONE can enter for a chance to win this amazing book!

When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her.

Or that it would end so painfully.

Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation.

As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael’s past prove to be too much to overcome?

My Review 
 4.5 stars

This is one of those reviews where I don't even know where to start. Reviewing, with words, a book that has rendered you speechless can be quite challenging. It was so well written it hurt. Priscilla Glenn has debuted and she has debuted hard!

This book is pure genius. You get to fall in love with Michael and Lauren twice! You will fall in love with Michael and Lauren. You experience a hurricane of emotions during a passionate storm of the past and present. It's a YA-fiction and adult contemporary love child! It's like the author took a list of all of my favorite things and put it into one book! It was developed in a way that drew me in, grabbed my heart, and didn't let go. Even after the book ended...it didn't let go.

This book contains one of the best love scenes I've ever read...EVER! Not because of "this" being touched or "that" being clamped. Not because of the "Oh Gods" or multiples. I'm not even saying it was the "hottest" scene I've ever read, but it left me breathless. I couldn't breathe over the passion or intimacy of that one moment. A moment that I wanted to make love to and carry with me forever. It was innocent. It was real. It was something I experienced right along with them.

I honestly don't know what it was about this book, but it captured me from the start. It was everything I needed in a book and more. It was heart wrenching, heart breaking, heart healing, and even funny...

"See, Red? When life hands you lemons, you know what you gotta do now."
"Yes, Mr. Cliche, I know what I have to do. I make lemonade."
"No," he said. "You scream, 'Fuck you, lemons!"'

Like it, love it, read it, hate it. I really don't care because I felt like this book was written just for me. It pulled me right in to the pulse of the story and became mine! I honestly wish I was White Oprah and could gift you all a copy, but I can't so...READ ON!
