When Susan is left orphaned, she begins a harrowing journey through the care system. Left with both mental and physical scars, Susan approaches adulthood with a self-destructive impulse. However, there is hope in the figure of her childhood friend, Max; the first boy she ever kissed.
Now a grown woman, Susan returns to her childhood home of Winchelsea, where she hopes she will find the answer to the gap in her heart that she’s carried with her since she left. With Max by her side, she attempts to find the path her life should have taken, to build a home, to heal old wounds, and to finally create a family that will stop the terrible feeling of something missing.
But Max has a secret, one that risks destroying all hope of a happy ever after, unless they can find a way to heal one another.
His touch was so gentle yet Susan felt it burning deep under her skin. As he caressed her stomach, she couldn't stop herself wanting him. He had completely taken over her body. The only thing she could see was the pure blue sparkle in his eyes; it was like staring at the ocean. She needed to give herself into him. She ran her hands over his shoulders and down his back, pulling him close. There was no more pain and no sorrow. He set her free.
Susan returns "home" after being placed in the foster care system. She was taken away from her childhood best friend Max, the only boy that she ever kissed. She is so broken both physically and mentally and keeps herself from getting attached to anyone. But will she allow herself to open up to Max and attempt to heal the brokenness inside and replace what's missing? Are the physical scars hiding her truth? Will she find the something missing to fill the hole that she thought would never be fulfilled?
Will Max's skeletons from the closet push Susan away or help make their relationship stronger? He has dark secrets in his past you would never expect from sweet and perfect Max. It's so hard to think about the awful things that are done to children while in the system.
This was a sweet love story without too much drama. I felt like every paragraph jumped forward and it was too perfect too fast. I knew it was too good to be true too soon. I enjoyed this story and give it 4 stars. It is a stand alone and a quick read. Sometimes I felt like it was hard to stay focused because it seemed to jump around so much. Music has become such an inspiration to my reviews because sometimes when I can't think of the right words I find the perfect song. So if I didn't say everything I could without spoilers, I hope these songs help explain.
I've always had a passion for reading but over the last several years it has become an obsession, a few months ago I decided to put fingers to keys to keyboard (or pen to paper!) and write Something Missing,a story I’ve had hidden away in the back of my mind for a long time.
Hazel lives in the small town of Rishton in Lancashire. England, with her husband, three children, two cats, dog, rabbit and lizard. She fills her days dashing between school runs, pets and housework and at night she comes to life either writing or watching her favorite program ‘Supernatural’ (yes she is Supernatural obsessed)
Her road to writing started with a love for paranormal romance novels, and after finding a passion for tragic romance she set out on the mission to share her own story. After long nights writing and a lot of ‘Supernatural’ episodes she is finally ready to share ‘Something Missing’. Hazel loves nothing better than sitting with a cup of tea, a chocolate biscuit and a good book.
