Book Review and Giveaway for Ends Here by M Robinson

Ashes to ashes.
Dust to dust.
And all that fucking shit.
I had killed.
I had sacrificed.
The innocent and the corrupt. I knew blood and I knew violence.
Never imagining I could know love too.
Mia Ryder was a woman to love. To cherish. To fucking claim. Now, forever, and
every day in between.
If there was anyone I’d go to Hell and back for, it was her.
Even if it meant, going to war with…
My fucking brother.

"There was no way he couldn't have felt the effect he had on me."

ENDS HERE by M Robinson was NOT what I expected.....maybe it was more, maybe it was a lot more, but definitely NOT what I expected. The action packed into this book, and the drama that preceded it all, was something that I never foresaw, nor did I expect any of it to happen the way it did. Having said that, Robinson's books have never let me down, and while the emotional and mental rollercoaster she took me on while reading this one was haggard, I would never want to pass up this opportunity for a great story. What a heartbreaking, time consuming ride this one was. Buckle up, it's about to get bumpy!!

To catch up, here is my review for Road to Nowhere: http://bit.ly/2hRX2fB

Fair warning: I stopped reading this one for a WEEK....that is not my normal, nor my typical reaction to a highly anticipated book. I don't know if I can specifically pinpoint when or why I needed to put it down, but I know that the amount of drama and activity going one was slightly overwhelming, but I knew I wanted to see this story through. I was SO excited for this one. Normally if I can't handle a book, or I am having a hard time, I DNF it. (UGH, right!??) I hate doing that, but I hate feeling like I am wasting my time on a book that takes me through so much drama that it makes my head spin, especially when there doesn't seem to be any basis for that much drama (at first, granted...at first). The odd thing for me was I knew I wasn't wasting my time. I knew that Robinson had a story to tell and I knew I needed to see it through. I am *so* glad I went back to it and finished it up. The triangle between Creed, Mia, and Noah was a story that needed to be told and the feelings, while I would never have completely understood them from reading only the first book, I definitely understood Mia's pain and the confusion while reading the second book. Obviously there was a reason for the drama and action in the first and second book, and that was the catalyst for everything that happened that thrust our hearts into the limelight. Mia, Creed, and Noah had a very impassioned story and it was a heartfelt story at that, but there was SO MUCH DRAMA. This was one emotional roller coaster from the beginning to the end, for sure.

"I'll spend the rest of my life remindin' you what you mean to me if I have to. Ain't lettin' you go. I will always, always fuckin' love you. And no one can take that away from me. Not even you."

Creed offered us this hard, brusk outer core balanced out with this soft, loving, and caring inner self. He was a walking contradiction in the best of ways. While Mia had a multitude of controversies and concerns, we got to grow with her and learn what it was that was making her tick; what made her make the choices that she made. Noah offered this emotion that I didn't think I would feel, and I loved having that unknown option because it provided me with another layer of intensity that I wasn't expecting. It was definitely hard to get through, and not one that I saw coming at all, but I am so in love with this couple and the way they finally saw it through. It wrapped up really well; so much so that I can't wait to discuss it with someone who has read it! Drama, twists and emotional turmoil mixed into one LONG duet. I say, if you are going to read this one, make sure you read both of them in a row, back to back, so that you can just get immersed in the love, the emotion, and the drama that surrounds this couple -- so you can feel it all in one fell swoop.

Robinson has an unconventional way of telling a story; one that sucks you in immediately. While her grammar/sentence structure may aggravate the grammar nazi within you, it allows you to feel the staccato in her words and the impact they were meant to have. Originally, that was hard for me to overlook, and that would normally not fly with me, but after reading so many of her books, I realize that's just her way of telling a story and I've never been disappointed. Ever. She's one of my favorite authors to read now because her stories are so full of life.

This story was the truest definition of the battle between the heart and mind. Embedded deep within their souls was a story to be told, and subsequently read. Things are not always what they appear, and Mia and Creed's story was the epitome of just that.

"The way she looked, the way she felt, but mostly the way she made me fucking feel. Searing and scarring me in ways I never wanted to recover from."
