The wait is over as Violet Duke’s latest release, “Every Night Without You”, finally brings Caine Spencer and Addison Millan face to face after seven long years of separation.

Part one of Caine’s and Addison’s love story, “Before That Night”, came to an abrupt halt when Addison disappears to save Caine’s future. And now after all these years, the union of these is just bittersweet, tender and a balm to an aching heart. Sacrificing her love, and hiding in plain sight, Addison had built a life for her and her siblings, with help from some amazingly kind people, and had created a haven for people who need a roof and food to survive. Her success is no easy feat as Violet Duke narrates her journey with so much passion, care and emotion.

Staying away from Addison was one of the toughest things for Caine, and now that he had found her, he’s never letting her go until his last breath. He’s proud of her success and now that she’s come into plain sight, he will do anything to keep her safe and protect her from any danger…and from all the handsome men she had made friends in the seven years!!! Talk about being jealous!!!!

This is one amazing narration of Caine and Addison’s reunion, as well as all the secondary characters and the Spencer brothers thrown in together as they rally around to protect Addison. The chemistry between these two is even more charismatic, the dialogues are loaded with laugh out loud wit, and the entire plot of love and mystery is just as captivating and endearing to read.

Every book of Violet Duke’s always seems to give me a glimpse of the author herself. Endurance, hard work and perseverance is the norm of her heroines, as well as in real life and she reiterates the fact that there are so many good people in this world who are kind and helpful, and that all is not lost. With a positive attitude and courage, she pours her heart and soul into these wonderful stories of love, hope and faith.

And no review will ever do justice to Violet Duke’s books. She needs to be read to enjoy her books, and if anyone wishes to try a new author, Violet Duke is the one!

 

Make sure to read part one of Caine and Addison’s story, “Before That Night”, where it all had started….seven years ago.

Received an ARC from the author for an honest review

I’ve loved, loved Violet Duke from the first time I read her – a brilliant writer with an insight into the souls of her characters, heavily invested into the emotions of her heroes and heroines, a tremendous energy of keeping wit and humor between the lines and a sublime spark of passion and love, just ready to sizzle the pages of her stories.

If “Love, Chocolate and Beer” (Cactus Creek 1), was a heady concoction of rich, warm chocolate and beer brewed to perfection, “Love, Tussles and Takedowns” (Cactus Creek 2) is armed with the unconditional love and support of a family, with no boundaries whatsoever and a town of people brimming with undying protection of their younglings. And not to mention the alpha male who trips and falls flat in the midst of prickly Cactus Creek!

LoveTusslesTakedowns-July2014

Liana Lin is an antique arms authenticator with a lifetime of martial arts training, and a past that had made her what she is today. Loved by all, adored by the kids of Cactus Creek, protected to the last pore of her very being, the pretty, sexy and sassy Lia has Hudson Reyes all but gets kicked in the gut with her kick-ass moves.

A former marine recovering from war injuries and working as a movie industry consultant for weapons and fight scenes, Hudson Reyes is all knocked out of breath by the angel face, tiny Liana Lin. Having endured the ravages of war, and the endless guilt of loss and pain, Hudson sees those chains around his heart break, as he gets to know Lia.

With an amazing supporting cast of characters in Cactus Creek (I’m sure we’ll see them more), Hudson and Lia become friends with benefits, followed by home runs! Love, Tussles and Takedowns is an emotional journey of relationships, of unconditional bonds made through heart, and the undying faith in humanity that there are good people among us. It is a charming story of two wonderful people who deserve each other of their love and passion.

Violet Duke does another fabulous job of keeping us on the toes of our feet, heart fluttering, warmth oozing, charm and charisma brimming, with a family that can go to any ends to protect their own, and a love that is armed and loaded with patience, humor and understanding.
