Release Day Blitz--Be My December by Rachel Brookes

Title: Be My December 
Author: Rachel Brookes 
Release Date: August 28th 
 Genre: Contemporary Romance


I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl. 

December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago. 

The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again. 

The dream of a ‘happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him. 

The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.

I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming. 

I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life. 

I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no. 

The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.

A girl who can’t say no.

A guy who craves redemption.

A chance encounter?

It all comes down to this.
One question.
One month.

Be My December?

What Readers are Saying:


My Review

"...As the perfect world I knew was destroyed, I ceased to exist as Eden Rivers...From that moment on, I would become a yes girl-as saying no seemed to be the worst decision I ever made."

December 16th is just a regular day for most people, but for Eden Rivers, it's the day her world stopped and she would no longer be the same. Her choices were taken from her that day, and she lived the next four years of her life hidden behind a facade that had yet to be torn down...Until now.

"As long as she was still hurting and as long as I still hated everything I was, I would never give myself the chance of happiness or contentment. I didn't deserve it, it was as simple as that."

The day that Ky Crawford watched Eden Rivers walk into his life, he knew he was a goner. He saw past all the walls she had built up and he was determined to knock them down.  He would do anything to protect her. He never considered himself a hero, if anything, he felt like he had something to prove. He needed to show this beautifully, broken girl that she needed to live again. The only problem was, he himself, was a beautiful disaster.

They had a month together. A lot can happen in a month. 

You pull for these characters. You see them each struggle with their own battles. You want them to win; to come out on top. Ky's trying his best to show Eden that she is always in control of her life. She doesn't have to do what everyone wants to just because she's afraid of the outcome.

"I had no choice."
"You always have a choice."

Ky Crawford. Can I just say that he epitomizes protector? He's amazing!! He is everything Eden didn't know that she needed.  

Ky pushed his own struggles aside to make sure she had everything and anything she needed. But how much can one person handle? Emotions are tough especially when you're not paying attention.

"I'm completely lost in you Eden, and I don't think I ever want to be found."

Gahhhhh! I can't tell you how many times that I wanted to crawl into this book and hug them! Ky and Eden had an amazing connection and you could see the love blooming between them. Buuuuuuuut...The past can be a big "bee with an itch". 

How can you move forward when your past keeps pulling you back?

"You are wrecking me, Eden Rivers."
Truth be told, he was the one wrecking me.

December. One month. One decision. Two broken souls.

What would you do if you had one shot to change your biggest mistake? 
Would you take that chance
Would you risk everything you've faught against just to bring life to another?

Sometimes second chances are just that...chances.

"You were meant to Be My December ,Eden, but you've become my absolute everything."

"I've given you all of me Ky, and I need you to give me all of you."

"You can have everything of me, Eden. I will give you the world."

"I don't want the world, Ky, I just want you."

If you think you have read the best from Rachel Brookes, think again. This was hands down her best novel yet! I was so emotionally involved throughout this entire book. This is not an easy book to read. Meaning that there are some very tough and scary issues that are addressed, and you find yourself holding your breath as you turn the page. I can't tell you how many times I cried. Rachel made me feel what Ky and Eden felt. I felt their pain, cried their tears and held them tightly in my mind. It's truly beautiful how she handled these situations. I applaude you, Ms. Brookes!

Also, the secondary charactes are freakin' amazing!!! Josh Crawford. Lawdy mecry! Having both Crawford men in one book was hotness overload;) Ashlyn was such a perfect companion for the boys, and to Eden. She's a spitfire and she knows how to handle those Crawfords. You also get a few visits from some old friends! Let me just say...Rachel made me soooooo happy with bringing in a certain hottie from the past;)

This book was not a typical love story. There isn't a perfect start to Ky and Eden's story, but there is passion, forgiveness and a lot of learning to live again.

I recommend this book to everyone! It gets five wonderful stars and I can't wait for the continuing story:)

"Please find peace with me."

"The way you are looking at me now, gives me the peace I've been looking for the past four years."
