Cry For You

Publication Date: OUT NOW!!!
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
You know how the story goes. Don’t you?
Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.
Not this story.
Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.
I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us, ripping us apart, and forever turned in to never.
He was gone. I was left to pick up the shredded pieces. Punished for the life inside me I couldn’t give up. The very thing I didn’t know would bring me out of darkness years later, could be the very thing that brings us together again for a second chance.
If we can only survive the ripple effects of the pain of the past and what lies ahead…
3.5 / 5
The feeling of instantly being absorbed into the story, is almost a rare feeling. But that was the case and the beautiful start with Cry For you!! I knew I would fall hard for the characters right from the very first chapter. And I wasn't wrong!
I completely adored the story, which might I say might have made my heart tear apart more than I thought possible; and it has been a while since I teared up to a book.
The start of the book, where Lacey is talking to her little boy - ahh it's too adorable but I also go the chills. I had the feeling something other that laughter and smiles were coming... I mean, from the title you can maybe guess that tissues would be your best companion, but let me tell you. You have no idea what you might be in for!
From that chapter, when she began to tell her boy the story of meeting Landon, I fell in love...
From a personal perspective, I don't tend to be a huge fan of stories that move between the past and the present. There weren't many instances that I loved or could get through that sort of book. CRY FOR YOU though, is an exception. I really liked the switching of the past and present. It played with the readers emotions in JUST the right way.
Shaniel Watson knows how to draw out your heart without you even knowing it, and then throwing a few stabs while it's so vulnerable!Add to that teh writing style that made it so easy to feel part of the story, and then the characters!! I loved Lacey and Landon. I loved how they were with the kids and I absolutely could not get enough in how their relationship progressed!
The only thing though, I personally felt it was a little slow passed. There were instances where I felt it could have added a different element to certain chapters because though I was fully absorbed into the story 99% of the time, that last 1% I knew I was slightly detached as I wished it was faster in leading up to certain events. But, even despite that, I still LOVED the way the story ended. I couldn't get enough of the characters and how they got through it chapter by chapter.
This was the first book I have read by Shaniel Watson and it definitely wont be the last!! I was s honored and glad to have witnessed sch a stunning second chance love story!
