#BookReview: What’s left of me by @kristen_granata #Giveaway






Synopsis: A contemporary romance about courage, loss, and moving on...

Callie Kingston’s life as an Orange County housewife isn’t as perfect as it seems. Her husband isn’t the same man she fell in love with nine years ago, and her home is no longer her safe haven. But she’s determined to keep up appearances, especially when it comes to concealing the bruises her husband’s temper leaves behind.

Until Cole Luciano moves into her best friend’s house across the street. He’s abrasive and rude, but his steel-blue eyes tell a different story—one with dark secrets that has Callie curious.

After suffering through an unspeakable tragedy, Cole settles into his sister’s pool house until he can get back on his feet. He’s convinced that he deserves to live with the guilt he harbors from his past, and wants nothing more than to be left alone. Yet he can’t seem to stay away from his beautiful neighbor. He sees right through Callie’s carefully orchestrated lies and is desperate to help her.

Callie discovers more than an angry and bitter man underneath Cole’s hard exterior. But when Callie finally finds the courage to create a new life for herself, Cole isn’t sure if there’s enough of his heart left to give in order to be the man she deserves.

Can two broken souls heal each other, or are some just too damaged to be put back together?

My Review: 
I absolutely loved this book! Kristen Granada does an amazing job touching on some hard subjects. I spent half the book in tears and half of it laughing. I loved how the main characters Callie and Cole were able to overcome tragedies by finding hope in each other and with the help of school me amazing friends.

Kristen Granata is a teacher by day, and an author by night. Known for writing emotional New Adult romance, she loves creating realistic, flawed characters who struggle through the darkest parts of life and come out stronger on the other side. Kristen is a self-proclaimed "bitter cynic trapped in a hopeless romantic's body." Her characters pack a sarcastic punch, make you laugh, make you think, make you ugly cry - and they will always live happily ever after. If you're a lover of moving, inspirational reads, Kristen's your girl.

After going through a difficult divorce when she was only twenty-nine, Kristen wrote and published her debut novel, Collision, in March of 2018. It quickly turned into a series, and now all four books in The Collision Series are available on Amazon & KU.

Kristen openly shares her mental health struggles with depression and anxiety with her Instagram following. Her message is a beacon of hope to anyone who is suffering: You are not alone. She delicately weaves this theme into her writing, and demonstrates the ability of love to heal after tragedy.

Kristen was born & raised in New York. She now resides in New Jersey with her wife & two step-daughters. When she's not teaching or writing, Kristen is reading, Instagramming, indulging in her messy love affair with popcorn, and annoying her family by incessantly singing along to The Greatest Showman soundtrack.
