Loving Josie, A Torey Hope Novel by A.D. Ellis
This is a stand-alone novel and does not need to be read in order.
Josie Decker has spent her whole life as an unloved and unwanted bother. Like a wild horse captured and bridled, Josie’s spirit is broken. She devises a plan to start her life anew; silently biding her time, she waits for the perfect moment. When that moment arises, Josie takes the opportunity and runs freely into an uncertain future in Torey Hope.
Kyle Martin is a tattooed, pierced, bad boy with a heart of gold. Marching to the beat of his own drummer, Kyle meets his perfect match early on in life. Devastating circumstances beyond his control plunge Kyle into dark despair and suffocating blackness. In an effort to escape the blackness, Kyle accepts an offer from an old friend and moves to Torey Hope.
Josie and Kyle hit it off as close friends and kindred spirits right away. Both are harboring secrets and sadness, but the connection between them is bringing light back to their smiles, their hearts, their lives. Kyle and Josie cling to each other as they battle guilt and crushed spirits. Through it all, with a lot of help from an unexpected accomplice, Kyle and Josie come to view each other in a new light.
When the past catches up to them and causes their lives to come crashing down, will Kyle and Josie get the chance to see where their future is headed? Or will they be forced to admit they waited too long to embrace what was right in front of them the whole time?
A heart-wrenching and heart-warming love story of cherishing the past while embracing the future.
For ages 18+ due to adult language and situations.
I really enjoyed Loving Josie. It was a beautiful story of two people who were damaged for different reasons, finding their way to happiness.
For Josie, she was a disappointment her whole life. Her parents couldn't stand her, her husband was another person who just pushed her further into the black hole that became her life. Josie was forced from day one, to be the person her parents wanted her to be, and when they realized she couldn't live up to their expectations, they gave up.
Kyle on the other hand, had a great life. Parents who loved him, great friends, a perfect love. Kyle had everything, until one unfortunate day it gets taken from him.
What I loved most about Finding Josie, was that it was real. Real situations, real feelings, everything felt REAL.
Josie and Kyle both have been through hell, and they both compliment each other well, but will they let the fear of what could happen stop them from something amazing?
