Xander Evans has been on the road for many years. Never settling. Always moving from one place to another, unable to let go of his past. He lived a tragic childhood, spending most of those years in foster care. He's never felt like he's had a home. That is until he stops in the small town of Truman Valley, Missouri, where he meets a woman who will change everything he's ever known.
Paige Watson has it all. A loving family, beautiful home, and a great career. The only thing she's missing....is love. After escaping an abusive relationship, she opens her heart up to a stranger. He is unlike any man she's ever met. He came into her life and turned it completely upside down. Everything is perfect. That is, until one fateful night.
A night that would tear the Watson family apart, never to be put back together again.
A night that would send Xander away to prison for life.
"How about twenty questions?" I ask.
"I hate twenty questions."
"How about five questions, then?"
He cracks a smile and lifts an eyebrow. "How about three?"
"So, have I mentioned how much I fucking hate Tuesdays?" Brandi's voice cuts right between us. Xander looks relieved.
Me? Not so much. "Damn it, Brandi!"
"Oh nothing. Can you grab me Fireball though? Pretty please. Two of them." I look at Xander. "You're taking one."
"Three. I am too, bitch! Fuck Tuesdays!" Brandi calls out from across the bar as she begins filling the shot glasses from the Fireball chiller.
"Question one. You said you’ve been traveling for a while now, right? Do you ever get tired of it? Ever feel like settling?”
"Damn. Starting out with the heavy hitters, huh?" He eyes the shot glasses as if hoping it will somehow make them fill faster.
"Need me to go easier on you? Maybe a finger or two first before I go in with the whole fist?"
He looks at me in disbelief. "Did you really just say that?"
"Just answer the question, two fingers or three?"
Into The Nothing is the first book in the Broken Outlaw series. I was really intrigued to read this book because I haven't read a romance book that a male has written and needless to say I was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. He wrote this book in dual POV's and nailed the woman's POV... and of course the male POV was fantastic too. I would give this book a huge 4 stars and highly recommend to others.
Xander has not had an easy life and even though he makes his way to a small quiet town he will find himself not only in a whirlwind romance with Paige but something tragic will happen and it will turn his life and Paige's life upside down.....
You need to read this book to see what happens, it is not ur typical romance it has many layers, but you will want to peel them away quickly because you will find yourself needing to know what happens next!
Get to one clicking on this debut novel you don't wanna miss out!
Xander is a wander, a loaner..no family, few friends.
A victim of loss and being tossed into the system, he's hardened.
Paige has lived a loving life. Two parents that adore her, friends that have her back and a job most only dream of. But she also has a past, one where she was broken down and abused.
Xander saves her... bringing hope and life to her. But when tragedy strikes and someone Paige loves is taken from her. Xander takes the fall.
His freedom rides on Paige's faith in him. Faith that was destroyed when he was set up for such a heinous crime.
This is not your typical love story and not your typical happy ending.
Be prepared for all the feels on this Rollercoaster ride.
Into the Nothing by BT Urruela is definitely not your stereotypical romance novel, and it was a breath of fresh air from the norm.
Xander has not had the model happy go lucky life like we think most people do. It was rough and hard, but one day he rolled into town and found Paige. Starting a romance with her was not part of his plan, and yet, he couldn’t stop himself, until something happened. Written from both Xander’s and Paiges’ perspectives, it gives insight and intrigue. The characters were well written and the story enticing.
4.5 stars. I think this is a must read and be ready for a whirlwind on the emotional highway. BT takes us for a very bumpy ride.
