Redefining Us

by Harloe Rae

As debut novels go I would have too say that Harloe Rae has a beauty on her hands, this was a fabulous read.

I thought she pitched the timber of the book just right, she showed just how hard and harsh life can really be.

Xander is back on home soil but he isn’t the man that he was before he left, he carries a whole new set of demons with him now and in a bid to protect not just himself but those that he loves, he makes the decision to isolate himself. Taking up residence in a rundown cottage in the middle of nowhere!

Now I suppose for many that would have been too much but for Xander I couldn’t help but feel that he was happy with his solitude, right up until Willow made it her mission to bring her friend back into the land of the living and to show him that life wasn’t as bad as he thought.

Xander will blow your mind, he was such an intense individual, I couldn’t get enough of him. He was so intense, so tough that I wanted to get to the bottom of what was eating him and to see him in all his glory, not the shadow that he appeared to be now. But could Willow breathe new life into this tortured soul?

Could she kick start his heart? Well that was a tall order.

Willow hadn’t had any contact with Xander for years, so it came as a bit of a shock when she first happened upon him again, she didn’t know what had happened to him but she could see that the man that she knew was still in there and she just had to try and encourage him to break down the protective shell that he had constructed around himself. But meeting his resilience head on she had to use every trick in the book to get Xander to see things her way.

I loved the connection between the two of them it was scintillating!

A realistic portrayal in my opinion on what it takes to find a love that is truly worth having, after all nothing that is worth having comes easy and the author uses that to her advantage.
