Review of September Ends by Hunter S. Jones

ARC provided by Publisher for honest review.



Synopsis:

Overweight and dull. That’s how I felt.



My grandfather and brother died. I hid inside a black cave deep in my soul, numbed for a decade on meds, booze, and bad love, married to my glorious career.

My name is Liz Snow, from Atlanta, Georgia, and this is my story.

One hot summer I fell hopelessly in love with successful attorney, Peter William Hendrix III, from Chattanooga, Tennessee. We bonded because of Shelley and Keats. Pete introduced me to the works of modern English poet, Jack O. Savage, It was like The Poet was drawing us together through his blogs and poems, like he had a message for my life and my love with Pete Hendrix. 

I lived it in my heart and soul.

It all went tragically wrong once I learned Pete’s secret.

As September ends I jet to London, England with an unstable mind and a broken heart. Pete Hendrix betrayed me big time. There was no time for revenge. My life was a kaleidoscope of stabbing shards of pain.

London ignored me. Maybe I didn't exist. I was lost and lonely in a flat in Kensington. I hear that Jack O. Savage will make a rare public appearance. I wrangle an invitation to the art gallery where he is reading. I was curious. Somehow, he was the cause of my trouble. The rock-star-with-words was even more damaged than I.

Jack O.Savage, The Poet became my friend. Then, an unexpected kiss at a county fair on a perfect English summer's day changed everything forever. Jack the man became my lover. 

Magic.

My elusive dream of a lifelong love began. If Pete was what I'd always wanted, Jack was what I always needed. The mystery unraveled as the kaleidoscope of my broken life evolved and I found myself living a rainbow of perfect bliss.

Sometimes when you believe it’s the end, it’s only the beginning. 

September Ends is a contemporary romance with erotic and supernatural elements bound together by poetry. It reveals the intricate web of passion and desire which entangles Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage. The story is told through Liz Snow’s diary, Jack O. Savage’s poetry, and from letters sent across the Atlantic. Traveling throughout the lushness of a summertime in Tennessee and Georgia, September Ends journeys into the elegance of London’s West End and is finally settled in the countryside of Cornwall, England, a decade later.

September Ends is a story of sin, redemption and salvation through love because love happens when we least expect it.

WHY!? I'm such a hot mess right now. I think I started crying on page 7? I have a feeling this is going to be a short review but in NO way does it reflect on the book. I'm so overwhelmed right now. This is not like the books I usually read. And, to be honest, I didn't think it would be so intense.

From the very beginning this book is charged with emotion and raw feelings. As you get deeper into the book, it's like you crawl deeper into this web of constant emotions. I may be having an "emotional day" but I have laughed, cried, cursed, and cringed. I even had to fan myself a few times. 

The way the book was written made the pacing pretty fast. I read this in under 3 hours and it really felt like 30 minutes to me. OMG and holy plot twists. I cannot deal. This book was so powerful to me. If you're looking for a witty and wordy read make sure to check this one out! You will not be disappointed.
