Giveaway: Because of Ellison by M.S. Willis

cover

BLURB:

When I was nineteen years old, I lived for sex, drugs and a good party. I had it all – good looks, a fast car and a hot girlfriend. Nothing in life was more important.

That was, until I met Ellison James….

Since the moment I first saw her she was a raging bull; tackling me in the mud and throwing out insults as fast as her tongue could form the sound.

She was snarky
She was rude
And she pissed me off like no other woman could.

I lived beside her for a summer and in the three months that I walked by her side…

She opened my eyes
She changed my life
And she made me a better man

 Excerpt #1:

“Why do you keep chasing after me, Hunter?” I could tell how raw her throat must have been by the scratch in her voice. I was thrown off by her question and it took me a minute to formulate a response.

I didn’t answer her immediately because I felt like everything, all the times we’d spent together, all the smiles we’d shared and the tears that had fallen, and all the years I wanted to share those types of moments with her in the future hinged on my response. Why did I keep chasing after her? To most, she was just another girl in small town who was struggling like the rest of us in an attempt to find a place where she belonged in this world. Most of those people weren’t lucky enough to know her like I’d known her – they hadn’t talked to her, hadn’t been shown the depths that existed within her. Much like the moon and stars that hung above us tonight, Ellison was a light that wasn’t easily contained. She burned bright enough to break through the dense fog I’d walked in my entire life. Because of her, I’d opened my eyes when I hadn’t even been aware they’d been closed – and for that, I’d chase her forever.

Clearing my throat, I reached up and pulled her hand from my cheek when I turned to look her in the eyes.

Speaking quietly, I confessed, “Because you are a dream and someone once told me that if I had a dream, I should chase it.” It was a simple explanation, but somehow I knew Ellison would understand the honest weight of what I’d said.

Her eyes blinked slowly as she studied my face and as usual, she did something unexpected. She laughed. The corners of my lips turned up when I tried to suppress my grin. Her laughter sounded fragile, as if something so tiny could come along and break it apart – but it was there and my heart raced against my chest to hear it.

“That is probably the strangest thing I’ve heard you say yet.”

Review:

I was gifted this book by the author MS Willis and Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock for an honest review.
I give this book a four out of five fangs.
Because of Ellison is a wonderful story about life and love. Two young people from two different backgrounds forging a friendship then later finding love. Spoiled rich boy Hunter having everything given to him. He didn’t have to work for anything. He was reckless, partied hard and cared only about himself. After his latest mishap mommy and daddy decide to send him off to go live with a relative in another state. Their goal was to teach him to appreciate what he had and see how the ‘other’ people live. His parents take away all forms of communication and his credit cards and serve him to his uncle in Florida. Once Hunter gets there he meets the neighbors daughter Ellison. Hunter is immediately attracted to her. Ellison on the other hand is not impressed with him. They bicker back and forth but it only makes Hunter like her that much more. Ellison teaches him about real friends and what real love feels like.
My favorite character would be Ellison. Her strong willed personality and easy going ways. She loved and respected nature. She stood up for what she believed in. There is a major sad scene that was written really well. I could easily put myself in her shoes and know the pain and heartache she felt. I was laughing and tearing up towards the end.
The book started out slow for me. It took a while for it to catch my interest. There were several typos and sentence phrasing that was overlooked. Several times words were missing in sentences but not so much to ruin the whole reading experience.
Overall the book was great and I would consider adding MS Willis to my list of go to authors. Due to language and a few intimate scenes I would recommend this book to young adults or older.
