I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved this book. From the very beginning I was so invested in Garrett and Samantha. I loved that there was the back and forth between the past and the present showing the connection they have together. It was heart wrenching to read all that they went through and this poor baby that they both grew to love. I really loved Samantha. She had lost so much, but managed to love so big. Garrett wasn't an insta-love for me, but he grew on me slowly and surely. There is one moment shared between him and Sam that made my heart trip and that was it. I fell head over heart for this man who had also lost so much. Together they can not only heal the hurts, but also grow such a big love that envelops those around them. I really loved their story and was sorry to reach the end.
I give Epic Sins 5 hearts!
About the Book
Garrett Armstrong, the lead guitarist of Epic Fail, womanizer and not-so-nice guy, leaves a trail of women in his wake. A recent one-night stand wreaks havoc and turns his present completely upside down. He’s faced with a reality that he never expected. Never wanted.
Samantha Weston can’t escape the black cloud that follows her. She suffered an unspeakable loss as a teenager and has been climbing uphill ever since. As soon as her life starts to become manageable, she’s slammed with another tragic event, forcing her to abandon the only thing in life that she cherishes.
A heartbreaking situation throws this unlikely pair together. They’re forced to face things that seem impossible. Can Sam get past the demons that haunt her? Can Garrett accept a fate he swore to avoid at all costs?
Can they conquer the sins that are poised to destroy them, or will they become an Epic Fail?
