Review ~ Halo by R.C. Stephens

eARC received via Enticing Journey Promotions in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: November 1st 2016

Publisher: Self-published

I fell in love with Thomas Wells and knew he was my forever.
I was sixteen when I gave him my heart. 
Our love was the kind to last a lifetime. 

But Thomas was broken. 
The first day we met he told me he was going to become a Navy SEAL. 
At nineteen he enlisted. 
At twenty he married me.
At twenty five he left me pregnant and didn't turn back.
I knew he was suffering…. 
I also knew I couldn't save him.
He left me broken.
I was scared and alone. 
Until I met Ryder St. John a wounded soldier… 
He was lost. 
I was lost. 
Together we made sense. 
I fell in love again… 
What Ryder forgot to mention was that he held a secret so explosive that it could shatter both our worlds.

My Opinion

Halo was one of those books that has been in my mind since I requested it. I wanted to read it so much that all other books I've needed to read first have held less of a draw. I don't know why this book intrigued me so much, maybe because it sounded emotional, but it definitely didn't disappoint.

Halo took me on an emotional roller coaster. It's full of highs and lows, but is essentially a book about healing. While it destroyed me, it did piece me back together as well. I thought the author did an excellent job of portraying believable emotions and creating two characters who I fell for completely. Their lives are hard, they're both suffering, but together the world is a little less dark.

I won't say anything about the plot. This book is one you need to experience.

Overall Halo was a moving and emotional read. The story kept me hooked better than I ever could have predicted and it was beautifully written.
