[Blog Tour + Giveaway] The Tattered Gloves by J.L. Berg



Head down.
Don’t look up. 
Never make eye contact.
Those were the words I lived by growing up, the words that protected me in an unsafe home. But words are only letters and eventually even they couldn’t keep his hands off me.
Hoping to leave behind the shattered life of my past, I find myself in a boring, small town, with an aunt I’ve never met and at a school I loathe.

But soon I learn, not everything in this world is as black and white as I’ve determined. Sometimes those we are so quick to judge often need a second, third or even fourth time to make a first impression.

And often, there are friendships and even love waiting just around the corner, if we are brave enough to take the first step.

Am I brave?

Or will I hide behind these tattered gloves of mine forever?

4 Stars!

J.L. Berg is a master with her words whether it be hot romance or all the sweet feels. So when she introduced her new young adult romance into the world, I knew I had to take a chance on it and step out of my comfort box.... plus have you seen that gorgeous cover?!

The Tattered Gloves was an emotionally charged story that was beautifully penned, effectively pulling on my heartstrings and fiddling with my emotions. This book took me on a journey that left feeling loss at the end, as these characters wedged themselves deep into my heart and didn't want to let go.

This book... the story... the journey... everything about it was amazing. The characters... the connections.... the chemistry.... all of it just called to me in the best ways. I am so so glad I took a chance on this story and this genre once again.

 I definitely recommend book.

4 Stars!

The story has pain, secrets, suspense, and heartbreak.

This is Willow and Sam’s story. Willow is living with her Aunt who she didn’t even know existed. She went through some hard times before coming to live in this small town. Now everything is different. What she really wants is to hide a little. She needs to feel safe but has trouble trusting anyone. Allison (Addy) somehow brings Willow out of her hiding and becomes a great friend. But Sam is a different story. He is popular and she assumes things about him that are not true. Can Sam get her to trust him? Or through her actions will she push him away so far, he wants nothing to do with her? Can she ever believe in someone and trust them no matter what again?

I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I recommend this book.
