Mend the Seams by Silla Webb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
** I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. **
Mend the Seams is the third book in Silla Webb’s Buried Secrets series. I loved the first two and this one was no exception. While the first two focused on Carly Jo and Colton, this is Luke and Savannah’s story. I have liked Luke since he was introduced in Book 1 and I loved reading about his story. I loved the alternating point of views from Luke to Savannah to even Josh. This is not a book filled with sex, so if that is what you’re looking for, this is not the book for you. This is a story about self – discovery and finding true happiness after fighting through despair.
I am eager to hear more of why Josh treated Savannah the way he did. I am also eager to hear more of the twisted friendship between Josh and Drew Varney (hopefully in Book 4???). I should hate Silla for the emotional roller coaster she sends me on with every book, but at the same time I love her for being able to invoke such emotions in me. I now am (im)patiently waiting for Book 4.

He’s trying to protect his heart… She’s a shell of the girl she once was… Can he chase away the demons threatening to destroy her?
***Note - Chasing The Dragon is the first book in a two-book duet and is a spin-off of T.K. Leigh's USA Today Best Selling Beautiful Mess series. It is not necessary to have read that series in order to read this duet, but it will contain a mild spoiler from the third book in the Beautiful Mess series, Gorgeous Chaos.***
T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is the USA Today Best Selling author of the Beautiful Mess series. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn't until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre.When she's not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

One flicker of a flame ripped my life apart. For two years now my body has defied my will to live and although the shell of my existence still roams this ungodly world-my heart died along with my wife and son. Their blood is on my hands and living my meaningless life carefree is the ultimate punishment of my self-conviction.
Never lettin’ friends get too close to identify my pain, I suffer in the confines of my own heart, quietly. All they see is the mask-the humbled, empathetic man. Not the guilt stricken tortured soul I truly am.
Our worlds collided like vehement waves of the perfect storm thrashing through the sea. Neither of us expected it, but both of us need to be saved from our own pain and destruction.
But the ship sailed too fast.
Fear and confusion consume me and I make the mistake of leaving her lost at sea just when she needs me the most; just when her greatest predator would strike.
Strugglin’ to survive through the wreckage my heart has been battered with, I have to battle my feelings and decide if I’m prepared to fight the darkest pits of hell to save her and Mend the Seams of her fragile heart or let her go completely. After all, she ain't even mine to claim.
Silla Webb is a Kentucky native, raised in the heart of the Eastern Kentucky coal fields. A coal truck driver's daughter, and a railroader's wife, the coal fields own a special place in her heart.
Silla is a work at home, Super Momma to three rowdy boys, who keep her on her feet from daylight to sunset. As a pass time from her everyday life, Silla started a blog-Momma's Secret Book Obsession, for reviewing romance novels. From there, she realized that not only did she have a natural love for reading and reviewing, but she found that lost love of writing that she once had as a young girl.
When she isn't conquering the world as a wife, momma and Super Woman, Silla loves to lay on the front porch swing and read while sipping sweet tea, just passin' the day away.

The angry hatred that fills my bones for every damn last Simon out there.
The starving need to avenge the life I was cheated of.
My father-Matthew Varney was heinously murdered when I was only three years old. Since learning the truth about his death at fourteen, and the identity of my real father-the man directly responsible for his demise, I have hungered for retribution.
Shame hindered the truth of his only son’s existence, but once he exhaled his dying breath-the plan for my revenge was set in motion. As the sins of the father devour me, the darkness consumes me whole. With each life scarred and ruined at my hands-my control of the situation slips further from my grasp. I crave the blood that spills onto my hands. Debts are due to me, and I am willing to crawl through the depths of darkness to claim the retribution of that I seek.
I am the bastard son of Big John Simon and this is my story.
