BLOG TOUR, #GIVEAWAY & REVIEW - It Will Always Be You by Tina Ness

Book & Author details:

It Will Always Be You by Tina Ness 
(You #1)
Publication date: October 26th 2014
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


It Will Always Be You can be read as a stand-alone

After surviving four years with a commitment-phobic boyfriend, Elizabeth wants nothing more than to settle down. Too bad the man she desires, Marshall Roderick, leaves her flustered, trembling, and unable to utter a single word when he’s near.

Assuming he’s the very definition of a womanizing bachelor, Elizabeth relegates him to fantasyland and makes no move to get to know him. That is, until a chance encounter along the shores of Lake Superior leads to drinks and a steamy romance.

Confident, successful, and freakishly handsome, Marshall is everything Elizabeth has been looking for. But when an unthinkable act of violence shakes them both to the core, she discovers that Marshall isn’t as carefree and put-together as he led her to believe.

Now it’s up to Marshall and Elizabeth to figure out if their love can heal the scars of the past and turn them into the people they’ve always wanted to be.



Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrairn I Dig Good Books.

I really enjoyed this one! It surprised me, and I have no idea why I should be surprised, but I am. I can usually voice my opinions and reasons why I have those opinions, but not here.

Its lovely, deligthful, but painful too. It carries Elizabeth and Marshall along a journey that is believable. It moves at an even pace, not too fast or too slow.

It has an attack on Elizabeth that for a while, it seems the WHY was simple enough. But then, that twist as to what was really going on threw me.

I liked Elizabeth, she has her say but Marshall doesn't. Its also in the first person, present tense. This and ONLY this is the reason it gets 4 stars and not 5.

A short review, I know, but I can't say what I want to say, can't find the right words, so not gonna waffle.

A great book, with highly likable characters and a believable plot line. Thankyou, Ms Ness, for a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours.

4 stars.
