Day 5: Recommend a tear jerker

Well, I have several for you today. Various reasons, but they made me cry, tear up, get that dang sore throat that I can’t get rid of.

The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers

Told in 1st POV from the heroine’s side, this story is about the people who come into you lives and leave highlighted passages in your story. The Story Guy is the hero who advertises kisses only on Wednesday’s. From the heroine, you learn why this is and how she wants him to highlight the rest of her story together. It had me in tears, but also with hope of happiness for these two.

A Firm Hand by Fallon Blake

A Firm Hand by Fallon Blake is an S/M book, but both characters have baggage that is holding them down. When everything culminates into the climax, I was left with tears at the true emotional heart break I felt these two had to overcome.

Star Crossed by Kele Moon

OMG, the hero of this story took my heart and tore it to pieces. All the things he had to deal with just made my heart bleed. You just have to read it to understand.


Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh KissOfSnow

Nalini Signh has gotten me in tears over two (well more actually) books. These two had me really thinking there would be no HEA. It ripped me up to see these men who have so much emotion and love, possibly not be able to handle it. The strong women who held them up never gave up. Oh, if you haven’t read this series, you should. While I don’t like every book in it, there are some stories that just ripped you up and then put you back together again so much better.

So what books made you cry? Or which ones left you in a snotty mess?

A book that has made me do the “ugly cry” is The Last Hour by Charles Sheehan-Miles!! Amazing book, but so emotional!
It’s on sale right now for only $.99 until tomorrow (I think), if you haven’t read it yet.
It is part of a series, but doesn’t have to be read in order.

I really enjoyed Star-Crossed too. I have the first few chapters of the next one thanks to Kele Moon whom I met at Book Bash! 😉
I cannot wait to read the whole thing!
