The Light in the Wound blog tour- giveaway and review

Affected by her parents’ highly publicized divorce, Isabel grows up isolated and alone, with a resolve to never fall in love and repeat their mistakes.
When Jesse Cain enters her life, she falls hopelessly in love with him, and every sadness she’s ever felt is washed away by his intensity and passion. But people change as they grow up. Things can never stay the same forever.

Jesse and Isabel fight to stay together, determined to hold on to what they once had. Isabel wonders if a second love can ever be enough to make her forget her first.

I just finished TLITW and I gotta say I'm so in love and torn and ... a mess. Christine did a great job showing the life of a woman from early childhood right through some of the toughest moments of her life. 
I have to say I was stressed to the max at certain points, messaging Christine my GAHHH moments and how much I hated and loved and hated and loved and wanted to kill or lick characters ... yeah LICK. God, I need a bit tonight after that read. 
Not only is it an emotional rollercoaster it has some H.O.T moments.
There were a few times I wanted to throw my kindle across the room (I say my kindle meaning my phone coz I don't have a kindle. Don't judge me. I take my phone everywhere so I can read on the go) But I refrained from throwing my lifeline across my house and actually had to walk away and wash up. I HATE washing up, but I needed a breather.
This is saying something about the gift in her writing.


It was a Jesse's love / hate for me, and because I didn't totally understand him I fell for Alex right away but always held a soft spot for Jesse. It was real hard to say no to Jesse for me every time he popped up and at some point I screamed at Isabel for going back to him. Oh dear God. I was cranky. He didn't know how to love and he wan't good for her. I'm so glad she found love in Alex. 

 If you find it a rough start as my daughter did (I'm glad she didn't keep going, it was hotter than I expected and she is too young)and gave up, please don't. It's one of those. Remember I said this about The Edge Of Never, well this is the same. HANG IN THERE. It's worthy of the time and emotional investment.
ohmygosh, I was scared they would eff this up, I needed a happy ending.
I give it 5 delicious stars because Christine made my chest ache, mad me  mad and made me so damn happy.

Thank you my dear friend Christine for such a beautiful story.
My Two favourite scenes in this book, other than the awesome sex- for Jesse is the baseball game with Issy. For Alex, in the car he challenges her cuss 'motherf@#ker' into the traffic. LOL
The book isn't just filled with love and heartbreak but great moments of laughter too.
I actually Highlighted this in the book.
