Review: Sweet Destruction by Paige Weaver

There’s a fine line between love and hate and they were about to cross it.

My name is Samantha Ross and this is my life.

I existed in a world that few know. Rundown trailers and crime-ridden streets were my home. Drugs and alcohol were the norm and happiness was the exception. I lived from day to day never knowing if I would have a roof over my head or food in my stomach. My life sucked. It took from me and gave nothing back.

But there was one certainty in my life. A black smudge on my window of hell.

Cole Walker.

He was a criminal. A thief. He brought hell and damnation with him wherever he went. He hurt and destroyed. He took and gave nothing in return. He was heartache and despair wrapped up in a perfect gorgeous package. Fast cars and fast women were his hobbies. His vices. But he had many.

I was one of them.

I was his addiction and his craving. His enemy on this earth. I feared him. I hated him. I loved him even more.

4.5 Sultry Stars!

Review by Allison East

I love Paige Weaver! She wrote two of my favorite books I read last year (Promise me Darkness and Promise Me Light) two books that I love to share about with other readers! They are so well written they deserve it. And she didn't disappoint in this novel at all.

Another gritty, tough as nails novel- but for totally different reasons.

Samantha Ross has not had the best life. Her mom is a drug addicted floozie of a woman, who has left Sam and her brother, Bentley, to fend for themselves for pretty much their entire lives. They never have food to eat- Sam is more hungry than fed for a lot of her life. They are constantly scared of their surroundings- and they just want to forget. And Sam is only 19! Her home is not a safe place to be, with dirty men prancing in and out of her trailer all the time.

Cole Walker grew up down the street from Sam and Bent. He also grew up without much of a family. His mom died early, and his dad turned into an abusive alcoholic.

Both of them struggling to learn what it means to love someone, to be taken care of, to be cherished.

Cole and Bentley- or Bent, did what they had to do to survive. They would have done almost anything to protect Sam. They stole cars, mixed with gangs. But they always protected Sam.

Cole wants Sam but he thinks he is a monster, and not good enough for her. And no one makes Sam feel a spark more than Cole. The only problem is- they hate each other.

This book is a like a huge car chase with crazy turns, running all the red lights- and dirty cops around every corner. But I want to be on that chase more than anything!

And I love Cole- he is the hero, without even knowing he is one. He has such bad self- esteem- but Sam changes all of that and makes him believe he isn't a monster.

I wanted more Sam and Cole- but it was ended just perfectly.

This is a great book, and I can't wait for more people to get their hands on it- fantastic job Paige! Totally fan girling over her!!
