100 Proof by Shanora Williams

Release Date: May 18th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

I was the low life.
The screw up.
The hopeless one with no future.
He was the rich guy. The smart one. The one who had it all.
My parents admired everything he did, while I was known for being their greatest disappointment. I didn't follow the path they paved for me.
I drank and partied and did whatever the hell I wanted. The buzz was something I couldn't live without - the fire that filled my veins after each sip always kept me running back for more.
But then I met her, and suddenly the drinks didn't matter. The parties weren't as fun. That fiery buzz came second for once.
I drowned only in her, wanting her more than I wanted to exist.
But even with her, I screwed things up.
Now, he's with the woman I love. And he may have her, but what he should know is that even with all of his money, that nice house, and his expensive cars, her mind, body, and soul will always belong to me.
And I'm not sorry about it, brother, 'cause she was mine first.

Excerpt:

Breakfast was supposed to be happening in less than thirty minutes. I couldn’t bail on Vin. He would have taken it personally. I figured filling him in in person would be okay. I wouldn’t even eat with him. I’d let him know what was going on and tell him he should schedule a flight back home as soon as he wanted to. I collected my keys and my clutch before I could process my thoughts, but as I climbed into my car and started it up, driving away from our two-story brick home, I realized I wasn’t doing this for Vin’s benefit. I was doing it for mine. I wanted to see him again. I wanted to know what was really going on with him. I wanted updates on him and Zay. About California, period. I wanted to see if he’d changed at all—or if he was just giving the impression of it to try and win me over again. Not that he could, but he would try. I knew this was stupid. I should have cancelled, like Lloyd said. By going to meet him—alone—I was asking for something to happen. I was secretly hoping to feel a connection again, but in the heat of the moment, I wasn’t exactly sure what that something was. I drove with racing thoughts, wondering what I’d say—what I’d do. Do I hug him when I first see him? Do I shake his hand and pretend to be formal? Do I treat him like my future brother-in-law or as my former love? I had no clue, but, still, I didn’t stop. I kept going until I was pulling into the parking lot of the busy restaurant and parking the car. I didn’t fully breathe as I climbed out, didn’t stop moving as I walked towards the entrance. I didn’t fill my lungs with air until I saw him standing in the waiting area, wearing a navy blue T-shirt that clung to his firm upper body, dark wash jeans sitting low and snug on his hips, and his hair a beautiful, chaotic mess. The veins bulged on his arms, the very ones I used to have no problem tracing with the tip of my tongue. My pulse roared. And then it hit me. This was exactly what I wanted to feel. The electricity between us—the fire that could torch anything that stood in its way. I wanted to witness his smoldering eyes drinking me in, like I was the most beautiful woman in the world. Lloyd had never given me this look. He had never stared for so long, like he would tear my clothes off right where we stood, no matter who was watching. My throat tightened. My core clenched. But I pretended none of it was happening to me as I walked forward to meet him. SBPR-SW-100proof-AN-99cent

************MY REVIEW*************

Shanora Williams is my go to author for angst ridden, emotional , passionate romance reads and she delivers yet again. What an emotional rollercoaster ride this one was. Marley and Vinny were together but they were torn apart all due to his addiction and that addiction cost him Marley. When they break up, it will be years before they end up seeing each other again.
Vincent has had a pretty bad life, always made to feel like he was unwanted, the bad seed in his mother’s marriage and her 2nd son is the favored one. After he lost Marley, Vin is trying to change and he has but to his family, he is still the unwanted outcast to them. He gets an invite to his brother’s wedding and instead of refusing to go, he makes one last attempt to befriend his brother. When he returns home for the wedding Vin is in for a big surprise and a terrible Heartbreak is on the horizon.
Marley was already her away from Vin when he was spiraling downwards into a huge crash from the drugs. She loved him but she needed to get far away. Away from Vin and her addiction to him. Now 3 years later, she has moved on and is getting married. But life is about to give her a swift kick and a huge shock when the true love of her life comes back and comes face to face with whom her new fiancée is.
There are many secrets, many twists and turns that keep you on your toes with this book. It is one angst ridden, emotional rife story that is a 2nd chance love story. You get to see the love of Vin and Marley. Their heartbreak, their angst , their demons yet at the same time we get to see their passions, their love and their hope for one another. I want to say I truly had some hate for Vin’s step father and I wanted to smack his mother for being so blind or just not protective. What I can say is it was wonderful to read this beautiful and touching story of overcoming your past to end up with a bright and HEA future. This is one book that you have to read, to experience.

My Rating: 4.9 stars *****
