REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - The Storm Within (Soul Mate Tree #11) by Cerian Hebert
The Storm Within - Cerian Hebert

EXCERPT

 

“Todd!”

 

Her husband’s name was ripped from her throat, twisted up with the sound of metal crushing around them. Juliana fought to grab on to anything as the car tumbled like a child’s toy, an endless somersault. She wanted to close her eyes, but the sight of Todd’s limp body, flung back and forth, held her horrified attention. Blood from the gash on his head splattered across her face.

 

Todd!”

 

Before his name could leave her lips, Juliana sat up in bed, her fingers clutching the sheets around her body in a death grip until the sensation of being thrown around subsided, and the sight of Todd’s broken body faded to black.

 

“It’s just a dream,” she whispered.

 

When she swallowed—too hard—her throat hurt, as if she’d screamed it raw. She probably had. Over the past year she’d woken this way more often than not.

 

A dream, but based on reality.

 

And she relived it over and over again.

 

Juliana eased her hold on the sheet and ran a hand over the empty side of the bed where Todd used to sleep. For five blissful years they’d shared this bed, had planned on sharing it for another sixty or more.

 

Fate had different plans for them.

 

Her eyes adjusted to the darkness, and now the room filled with moonlight and a green glow from the clock on the table next to her bed. She focused on the numbers on the display. Midnight. Again.

EXCERPT:

 

“Family meeting!” I yelled from the bottom of the stairs, then, without pause, hit a few buttons on the phone screen.

 

“This better be good,” a voice grumbled in my ear after several rings.

 

“Family meeting,” I declared again.

 

He started to groan, but I hung up.

 

Family meetings were not negotiable. Not ever. Especially when I had something good I wanted to say.

 

Rimmel shuffled out of the kitchen, drowning in my hoodie and a pair of oversized sweats. Her hair looked like a chicken took up residence in the strands, and her nose was all scrunched up, accentuating the tired look in her eyes.

 

“Roman Anderson!” she chided, sassy as ever. “What in the world do you think you’re doing yelling up the stairs like that at six a.m.?”

 

Running a hand through my damp hair, I gave her a crooked smile. “Family meeting, baby.”

 

She snorted. “There can’t possibly be anything that important at this hour. If you wake up the boys with all that yelling…” she warned. In her arms, our daughter stirred. Rim glanced down then back at me accusingly. “Look what you did!”

 

I rolled my eyes. “London was already awake,” I pointed out, gazing directly at the bottle Rim was holding.

 

Rimmel looked down at our daughter, her eyes softening. My heart clutched a little, tightness squeezing my chest. London might be our youngest child, but seeing Rim standing in my house, drowning in sweats and holding my daughter, was something that would always affect me.

 

They were perfect standing there. My girls.

 

“Your daddy is a crazy man,” Rimmel told London. “Calling silly meetings at the crack of dawn.”

 

London made a sound and reached up for the black-framed glasses perched on Rim’s face.

 

“Nothing I do is silly! Don’t be telling my girl disparaging things about me,” I grumped, going forward to gently take her out of Rimmel’s arms. After taking the bottle, I glanced down. “Don’t listen to her, Strawberry. Mommy’s just grouchy without her coffee.”

 

London smelled like Rimmel, and I cuddled her closer into my chest. She reached for the bottle and pulled it to her mouth, her wide blue eyes staring at me like I was the only thing she saw in the world.

 

Smiling, I brushed at the soft dark hair covering her head. She was a miniature version of my wife, only with blue eyes.

 

The only one of our children to actually favor Rim in looks over me.

 

“Go get some coffee, baby. I got this.”

 

When Rimmel didn’t move, I glanced up. She was staring at me and London.

Lifting an eyebrow, I said, “What?”

 

That kissable mouth of hers pulled into a soft smile. “I just like watching you with her.”

“You make good kids, smalls.”

 

“You aren’t so bad yourself, Mr. Anderson.”

 

Heavy footfalls on the stairs made Rim lift her head.

 

“I’m gonna kick you in the ass, Rome,” Braeden grumped, scrubbing a hand over his face as he yawned.

 

“Rise and shine,” I drawled, then leaned over to kiss Rimmel on the forehead. “Get your coffee,” I instructed softly.

 

“It better already be made,” B bickered, brushing past.

 

Rimmel smiled and turned to go into the kitchen, but her feet got caught in the damn too-large sweatpants and she pitched sideways.

 

I lunged forward, clutching our daughter in one hand and reaching out with the other. Braeden moved a little quicker and scooped her up before she could hit the floor.

 

“Girl, either eat a steak or get some pants that fit,” he said, placing her on her feet.

 

“I thought you were half asleep.” She smacked his chest and started toward the kitchen. She fell so much it didn’t even faze her anymore.

 

I glanced down at London. “You can look like Mommy all you want, but how about taking on my reflexes, huh?”

 

“I ain’t so tired I can’t catch my sister before she busts her ass.” B scolded Rim as they continued into the kitchen. “We got shit to do today. A hospital visit ain’t on the list.”

 

“You know what this meeting is about?” The accusation in her voice made me wince, and I hot-footed it into the living room. I’d let him deal with that.

I stopped in the doorway, unable to not look at him.

I liked the way he looked.

There. I said it.

Before by Cambria Hebert
Before - Cambria Hebert

Started off kind of slow but didn't end that way!
It became a creeptastic intro to Sam and Heven. They're not an item, but Sam sure wishes they were. Plus there's a 'monster' that I really wantt to know more about.
Good thing I have Masquerade on my Kindle, because I'm left on the edge of my seat.

Little Women (DNF) ★☆☆☆☆
Little Women - Louisa May Alcott,C.M. Hebert

I’ve been enjoying the episodes of the Canonballz podcast covering classic books that I’m already familiar with so much that I decided to try reading a new one. I know how loved this book is, but had never read it or seen any of the TV/movie adaptations, so decided this might be a good place to start.

 

Or not. I’ve listened to a full hour of the story and cannot keep my mind on it. The characters are boring, their pious concern over being well-behaved and having nice attitudes is boring, and the style of writing is boring, even for middle grade fiction. Maybe the pace picks up later. Maybe the characters get more interesting. But I’ll never find out, because I just can’t face another 18 hours of listening to this.  

 

DNF at 5%. Audiobook, borrowed from my public library via Overdrive. C.M. Hebert does a fine job with the reading, but it was still a yawn-fest.
