Book & Author Details:
Damaged Intimacy by Hanleigh Bradley
Publication date: April 14th 2018
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Tallulah is a happy, bubbly, excitable girl or at least that’s what everyone else thinks. Inside… Inside she’s a mess. She’s holding it together, but she’s got a secret, a secret that she can’t tell anyone. A secret that makes her skin crawl and leaves her crying herself to sleep. She tells herself she’ll be okay. That she can cope. She can forget about how damaged she is. Then she meets Jarrod, her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend and he’s everything she’s ever wanted except she isn’t the girl she used to be and now she doesn’t think she deserves what she once wanted.
Another short book from this author, but one where the length doesn’t adversely impact the story.
In a scant few pages, the author has created a detailed back story (which plays out over the course of this instalment) paired with characters who have emotional depth.
Overall, a decent read.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Hanleigh loves books more than nearly anything in the world; whether it’s reading them or writing them, Hanleigh just can’t get enough. She relishes in the way authors can create worlds with the words they put in their books.
Hanleigh absolutely adores Romantic Fiction. She first fell in love with literature as a small child reading Dr Seuss. She then fell in love with romance literature when she first read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Hanleigh is about as English as it’s possible to be. She sometimes wishes she could live inside the world that she can create inside her mind, but since that isn’t possible she puts pen to paper and shares that world with this world instead.
