Release Blitz and Review: Monday by E.L. Todd

MONDAY by E.L. Todd

I don’t believe in destiny.

In fate.

Or in soul mates.

But I believe in Hawke.

My life has never been whole since my parents left forever. I have my brother, someone I can barely tolerate most of the time, and I have my best friend, Marie.

And I have myself.

But when Hawke walks into my life, there’s an immediate connection. Our eyes lock and an unspoken conversation is exchanged. For the first time in my life, I actually feel something.

But he doesn’t.

He keeps me at arm’s length and pretends there’s nothing between us when there clearly is. I’m not the kind of girl to wait around for any guy, so I don’t.

But that doesn’t mean he isn’t in the back of my mind.

Our paths cross again in a way neither one of us expect and it changes everything. Was it destiny that made it happen? Was it fate?

Or was it something else?

This is the first book in the Timeless series and it's on sale for just .99¢ for a limited time!

This is not your typical love story.

Hawke and Frannie's love story is raw and gritty.

Hawke has some issues of his own going on but Frannie makes him see the good in the world. And makes him want to try to be the man she deserves.

Parts of this story were frustrating to me because Frannie vows to Hawke that she'll never let him hurt her, etc. Yet the minute Hawke becomes violent she begins defending him and his actions. He's controlling and violent yet she stays. Until he walks away.

Hawke realizes the danger he is to Frannie and walks away. Even when she begs him to stay. As much as I disliked Hawke, I have to applaud this.

I'll be interested to see how the rest of their story unfolds in the next book.

I'm giving this one 3.5 stars.

Bestselling author, E. L. Todd, was raised in sunny California where she still lives today, claiming it’s the best place in the country. Easily hypothermic and hateful of the cold, she prefers to be warm all year round. She attended California State University, Stanislaus and received her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences, but still pursued her dream to be a writer. She’s written several novels and many series’, and her imagination can’t seem to stop. She tries to find the good in people and she exploits that in her writing, proving that people can make mistakes and rise above their past. Her hobbies include sunbathing, swimming, eating at Surf Taco in San Diego, reading, and learning everything she can about hippopotamuses’, her favorite creature. Her greatest dream is to make people forget about the harshness of reality and dive into a good story with lovable people. When fans tell her they love her work, it gives her the greatest sense of accomplishment.
