Without a doubt a 5 star novel.
Does love have a chance when no one knows she wants it?
Jinx Tanner is an ex-con trying to piece together a life on the outside and heal her relationship with her half-sister who hasn’t spoken to her in over twenty-five years. Romantic love is nowhere on her radar. E. J. Bastien is a business executive with her life and heart under control. She has a successful career, a woman in her bed whenever she wants one, and a healthy relationship with her grown children—as long as they don’t find out she’s gay. She has no desire for romantic entanglements.
When these two women awaken after a one-night stand to find their lives inextricably entwined, love has its work cut out for it.
Embracing the Dawn was written beautifully and it has slipped straight into my ‘Favourite’ and ‘Must read again’ shelves on Goodreads.
I was quite taken by Jinx Tanner’s story. Her backstory was what gripped me from chapter one. Every time she explained details from her past I was in tears at her struggles and bravery. She was quite a woman someone that I would genuinely love to know. She comes from such a wounded past and deserves the happiness that She and E.J can have. Unfortunately E.J has her own family drama that is stopping her becoming her true self and making things difficult for her and Jinx to be together.
I absolutely loved this book. It was so raw and honest. The story was very believable and I think that’s what has stood out from most books I’ve read recently. Bold Stokes Books have really upped the ante recently with there Authors. This was a fantastic novel. I was gripped from the beginning.
Can’t wait to see what’s next from Jeannie Levig.
Quote of the Book:
“The dawn is a promise of another day, another chance,” Jinx said, watching the pink expand into the sky. “Another opportunity to be happy. And every day, I think I couldn’t possibly be happier.” She crooked a finger beneath E. J.’ s chin and tipped her face to hers. “And then, I wake up and see you.” She kissed her.
