BLOG TOUR* Losing Her by Cori Williams

TITLE: Losing Her
SERIES: Broken Road (Book 1)
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
AUTHOR: Cori Williams
PUBLISHER: Booktrope Publishing
Release Date: November 7th, 2015

Love. I’d hated love for most of my life. I saw how it destroyed the one person I thought I could count on as it sucked him under, leaving him not to care about anything else in the world—including me. But when I didn’t close myself off, I let love consume me. Love and hate, two words that don’t often go together but that’s what I felt for him. Beneath the prince lurked a monster.

Lawson Reynolds fell in love with Campbell Wynn the minute he laid eyes on her—even though he was clueless to the fact. Maybe if he had realized it sooner, he wouldn’t have lost her. Campbell Wynn had no interest in becoming another one of Lawson Reynold’s groupies. She thought she found her own happily ever after when she didn’t think they even existed. But the perfectly painted picture soon turned ugly behind closed doors. Will Lawson’s unconditional love be able to save her from the downward cycle that she refuses to break? Or will she reach the point of no return?
****MY REVIEW**** 

The blurb was the first thing that sucked me in. The second thing was I had never read a book from Cori and was happy to read this story.
The prologue had me in a 'WTH', 'OMG', give me more type of mood. After the first 3 chapters I am not sure the book would continue on the same way it began.

The characters Lawson Reynolds and Campbell Wynn had a very interesting relationship. Throw in Conner and all the additional obstacles between the trio and you get a whole lot of drama. There were so many things that came in the way of their friendship/relationship but I always appreciated how Lawson was always sweet, loving and caring.

I like Lawson more than Campbell because I felt like I saw a side of him that I really like. Campbell was just well...Campbell. I wanted her to wake up and man up to her feelings but instead she always chose her head and not her heart.

What didn't work for me in this story.

I didn't like how the story jumped. Most of the time throughout the book I was left feeling confused. I thought I missed a few chapters and would often have to go back a few pages. I wished that each chapter had the name of the person whose point of view it was. Again, I found myself confused as the story would be told from either Lawson's or Campbell's point of view and it would take me a while to determine which person I was reading.

The Prologue was so intriguing that I thought the entire story was going to lead up to what the hell happened in the beginning. You kind of get what happened all the way at the end of the book but the story leading up to it wasn't really leading in that direction.

Besides these points, the story was OK. I didn't love it but I liked it.I need more to fall in love and find that emotionally connection.
Overall, Losing Her was an OK story with interesting events and characters.
