Release Blitz #review: Eight by e.s. carter

Love isn't free
You pay its price with your heart.

Title: Eight
Series: Love by Numbers #6
Author: E.S. Carter
Release Date: June 13, 2017


I'm sorry for your loss.
Why do people say that?
When someone you love is taken from you, when a part of you dies along with them, you haven't lost them like you would your car keys or mobile phone. They aren't stuck down the side of the sofa or left in the ignition of your car for you to find later. You haven't absentmindedly put them somewhere and forgotten. You will never lose them because they live in you.
The soul crushing hurt that burns your lungs with every breath you take comes from knowing where they are and not being with them.
The ugly and real definition of grief is being left behind.
I'm sorry they left you.
I'm sorry you are alone.
I'm sorry it hurts to breathe.
Loss; it doesn't even compare.
She was my first love.
She is my last love.
I am an empty husk who pretends to be filled with enough love for those of us she left behind.
Our little girl and newborn son need me.
I am both mother and father now.
I am hollow and empty.
I am a shell.
So why does the girl with the face of an angel and eyes that mirror my emptiness, look at me like I'm her everything?

*Book #6 in the 'Love by Numbers' series. Can be read as a standalone.*

Eight is a thing of beauty, although there is a soul wrenching pain you can feel throughout the book, there's so much beauty in that pain.

Josh went through something no partner should go through. Now he's in charge of his three year old little girl and a newborn, and he doesn't know what to do with himself, let along his babies. A chance encounter brings him the clarity he needs and he decides to do better for his children even though he's dying a little inside every single day that goes by.

Ibiza brings him a new new life, and something he never thought it would happened, a new love interest.
Ms. Carter has writen a poignant story full of love and so much hope. There are so many life lessons in this story, that I'm sure more than a few people that are going through a situation like Josh will find this to be a lifeline to help them start living and focus their life in the positive in front of them. There are not enough words to say how much I LOVED this story, the characters, the inspirational words this author has released into this world.

The author once again captivated me with her storytelling, her tale of loss, anger, pain, hopelessnes and the posibility that even when we're going through the darkest parts of our journey, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel that will guide us toward a better tomorrow.

Author Bio

ES Carter lives in Cardiff, South Wales. The home of castles, dragons and folklore.
Her family joke that she was born with a book in her hand, and the urge to write stories soon followed.
At eleven, she won her school's literary prize. At ages fourteen to sixteen - her poetry phase after falling in love with Dylan Thomas and e.e. cummings - she had a few poems published, but life, love and family overtook her dreams, and she was in her thirties when she began the scary journey of self-publishing.
Her debut and internationally best-selling series, 'Love by Numbers', are a set of interconnected stand alone romances, all with varying themes of love. From second-chance to romantic comedy and M/M romance. These stories do not need to be read in order, in fact, she is often guilty of advising readers to start at the last book and work their way back through.
Contemporary romance is not the only genre she writes, her second series, 'The Red Order', is as dark and twisted as you can get, but there is beauty there too if you can open your eyes and look.
With many more stories bursting to be set free, she hopes you stay along for the ride.
She loves to connect with readers, so please feel free to friend/follow her on Facebook, IG and Twitter or join her reader's group, E's Elite <3
