~5 Stars for Always In by M.R. Joseph~

Author: M.R. Joseph
The Shore Series #2
My name is Raphael Cruz. I was once a man made up of only flesh and bone. Never feeling, just existing. I indulged in the pleasures that others gave to me, and those I gave to them. That's all it was—pleasure. Physical pleasure. No emotions, no attachments. I didn't need all those feelings, didn't want them. There was no longing for love, no longing to let anyone in. Until I found her. And I gave in.

Harlow Hannum showed me what love was all about. I savored it and held it close, not even knowing I really wanted it in my life. She made me feel loved. She made me accept love. She taught me how to love in return. My heart was open to it all. My heart was hers. It belonged to her. But, she never knew. And then lies, deceit and betrayal forced me to lose the one thing that made me more than a man who just existed.

I should have told her I loved her when I had the chance. I should have told her I gave in to all the powers that love possess.

Will I ever have the chance to tell her? Will my past mistakes never give me that chance?

Where is God's Name have I been and why didn't I read this series sooner?  
This is the second installment in The Shore Series and I am a total fucking goner!  I can't even believe how the tables have turned in this sequel. Let me just tell you the emotional turmoil, angst, anxiety, love, compassion, pain and passion that you will experience reading this story is worth every single second you feel it.  From the moment you start until you hit 100%, you will go through some serious internal wars just like the characters do! Shit! Lemme tell ya! You will want to shake the shit out of MR Joseph (more than once i might add) but when you reach the end you will know that it just had to be the way it was. PERFECT!!!
  I am going to share with you the immediate message I sent MR Joseph upon finishing Book 1 Giving In  
"I'm on the blog tour for Always In and I finished Giving In last night and I had to tell you that I absolutely loved it . 
IT has been along time since a book truly touched my heart and soul and I read it in 2 days which is amazing since I work 50 hours a week and I have a 3 year old. 
I can't wait to read Always IN Tonight!!! 
There you have it peeps Enough said!

See where it all started.....

The Shore Series #1
Raphael Cruz doesn't do it. He just doesn't. Cruz doesn't fall in love. He's a "get in and get out" kind of guy. Ladies love him and fall all over him for his swoon worthy good looks and overwhelming sex appeal. He knows how to talk to them and tells them exactly what they want to hear. When he's done making them scream his name, he shows them straight to the door. The meaning of the word love doesn't exist in his world. But that could all change with a wink of a girl's eye... And one hot-as-hell romp in a bar bathroom.

Harlow Hannum is your typical girl-next-door. She has the brains, the beauty, and the money. What she doesn't have is the luxury of being someone's first choice in the game of love. She always comes in a distant second place, leaving her guarded with her feelings. Lies, betrayal, and secrets of her past follow her wherever she goes, no matter how hard she tries to hide them. That is until she's reunited with the one guy who can ignite the spark in her heart that's been extinguished for so long.

With sunny days, heated nights, and love lingering in the air in the beach town of Sandy Cove anything can happen. Especially when fate steps in for Harlow and Cruz. Will their blossoming friendship turn into unexpected love or will the collision of their opposing worlds be the end of what could have been?

This was an amazing story of the encounters of two very different people.  
Harlow (Turnip) and Cruz. 
Two people that have an amazing experience together and never expect to see each other again, but meet again by chance. 
They share mutual friends, but they can't seem to stand each other.  
After calling a truce and spending some time together they build something beautiful.  
Then the shit hits the fan!  
People start to get real 
Feelings get hurt, lies, threats and hopelessness sets in.  
Decisions are made that can't be undone and you wonder will what they built survive all of this or just fizzle out?  

You saw my comments above about how this book effected me so i rest my case with another 5 BadAssDirtyWTFhappensNowStars
