HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to Constant by Rachel Higginson! Constant, a second chance romantic suspense that is the first book in a duet, was released today (November 16, 2017) by Reckless Siren Publishing.
Rachel Higginson is the best-selling author of The Opposite of You, The Five Stages of Falling in Love, Every Wrong Reason, Bet on Us and The Star-Crossed Series. I love Rachel’s writing, and I was extremely excited when asked to review an ARC of Constant [be on the lookout for my book review very soon].
Before we get to the sneak peek at this new release, find out what Constant is all about:
Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart.
Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared.
Five days ago I thought I saw him.
I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me.
He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving.
Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about.
Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy.
Five minutes ago, I saw him again.
Five seconds ago, I was too late.
The summary is intriguing and intense, and I hope some of you download or pick up this book so we can “OMG” together!
Now, for the fun stuff…a teaser from Constant, courtesy of Rachel Higginson:
“There were times in my life that I thought I wouldn’t survive. I stood at the precipice of death and peered over the edge. One misstep or ill-timed gust of wind and I would have tipped over, fallen down the black abyss and never resurfaced.
Sometimes when I looked back at those moments, those infinitely dark and twisted times, I couldn’t breathe. I would feel my heart shatter all over. I would experience the tearing, crushing, ripping apart of my limbs and muscles, my tendons and veins, my heart and my mind. I would forget how to breathe.
I would forget how to be.
Until I remembered him.
He was the one constant in my life that had pushed me through the darkness. He was the one constant in my life that loved me beyond everything else, beyond what I was or had been or could ever be. He wanted me to be better. He wanted to be better for me.
And yet he was as tangled in the madness as I was.
I didn’t have that life anymore. I had broken free and found something safe to build a foundation on. But I couldn’t remember the past without imagining his smile or his eyes, his touch. I couldn’t think about where I had been without thinking of where we were supposed to go.
Where he was supposed to take me.
Sometimes life doesn’t work out the way you plan. Sometimes circumstances change and sometimes they’re for the better.
But he was my constant then and he is the constant ghost that haunts me now.
I might not be with him.
But he will always be with me.”
What do you all think? Rachel’s writing and stories always suck me in, and I have been captivated by so many of her characters across her books. I highly recommend reading some of Rachel’s work, and this is a great book to get started with if you enjoy romance and suspense.
Sayer and Caroline will be back, remember, and the second book in this duology will release in February 2018!
Until next time…xo
