BLOG TOUR & REVIEW: Vandal by Carion Cole




amazon


Exclusive Excerpt: 

 I slowly walk down the dark hallway and stop at Katie’s doorway. Her pink nightlight is on, illuminating the room. I don’t want to go in, but I can’t stop myself. The mix of her presence and her void is completely overwhelming, and I fall to my knees in the middle of the room. The pain in my chest is like nothing I have ever felt before, as if my heart is being ripped from my body and sliced into tiny pieces. I want her back so bad. I want to just feel her tiny hand in mine and tuck her into bed. Lifting my head, my eyes fall on Teddy, Katie’s coveted bear that she left here to ‘take care of me’. I crawl to the small bed and lie my head next to the little bear that, just a few days ago, we tucked into her blankets together until she’d be back. Pressing my face against the little bear, I can’t hold back my tears anymore. 




 Review By Angela

3.5 stars

From the first page of reading this I get a sense of Ok so this is how the story is obviously going to go, then I turn the page and keep on reading and the then the story takes a turn and I'm thinking WOW clearly that is not the way the story is going to go and how wrong I was.

This book kept me on my toes and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. It was very emotional for me and I think sad in general for most readers who read this.

I enjoyed getting to know Vandal and seeing the Vandal he keeps hidden.

Unfortunately for me what ruined this story was the last chapter from Tabitha, I just didn't get it. To read that and see that all along what I was reading was a lie, just ruined it for a me. Everything I felt and saw between them just disappeared for me.

For me if I can unread that last chapter of Tabitha then the book was great!

Vandal Synopsis: 
 She takes my breath away; she is so beautifully damaged. Yes I had broken her, ravished her life, destroyed her happiness. I brought her to ultimate despair. I was responsible for all the pain and suffering that now brought her to her knees in front of me. Broken. Hopeless. Reckless in her agony. She is a mirror of my own tortured soul. But what I took away I can give back. In ways she cannot even begin to imagine. She is everything right in all my wrongs. She loves me. She needs me. She has no idea I’m the one who wrecked her life.

Carian Cole Bio:

  carian 
 I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives. My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published on September of 2014. Vandal, the second novel in this series is publishing in February of 2015. I currently have approximately nine books slated for this series, as well as an MC series in the works, and a few stand-alones coming in 2015 onward. Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
