BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY
SUIT (THE TWIN DUO)
RELEASE DAY SEPTEMBER 21ST
When my sister, Isabelle showed up, just ahead of a tropical storm, nostalgia and a need to reconnect took us on a ride...directly into the eye of a different kind of disaster. I woke from a coma unaware that I even had a twin and married to a man with two little girls. Although I fell madly in love with children that I didn't remember, I did't feel like I belonged with Paxton Pierce. I couldn't be who he wanted me to be no matter how hard I tried. But things aren't always as they seem. I fought my own demons, trying not to be the submissive he required me to be, yet I craved it like a drug. I wanted him.
Once upon a time I was an identical twin.
And then I wasn't.
I am giving Jettie Woodruff book Suit 5 stars because this book was such an interesting book. This book has so many good twist every time you think you know what is going on something happens where it throws you off. Honestly this is the first time I got the chance to read one of Jettie Woodruff books. I had the pleasure of reading this book in a ARC in exchange for an honest review. I must say this book totally blow me away because its about two identical twins that have been through so much in there life, but what I love about this book is no matter what the girls go through their love for each other never changes. Because of their mother being a drug addicted and killing herself the girls get separated in foster care. They don't see each other for 13 years and one of the girls gets and wonderful life while the other twin goes through hell. When they finally come together Gabriella and Izabella lives have change and are different in so many ways. Gabriella has two daughters and a husband name Paxton. Gabriella husband is such a dominating alpha man who is so controlling with his wife and home. Izabella went to college tried owning her own business but it failed. So she works as a waitress at Hooters to pay her bills. She is single with no kids. These two twins may look alike and act alike their lives are so very different, but what is not different is their love for each other and how they both need each other just to be happy. This book is about their struggles their connection and devotion to each other. And in the end of the first part of the book you will see how much one car accident can change both of their lives for the worst. I am so hooked on their story I cannot wait for book two. I am still in shock and can't wait to find out what's going to happen to Gabby and Izzy. And who was left behind and where is the other twin. I must say this Author sure knows how to end a book on a cliffhanger that keeps you wanting more. If you have not read this book read it you will be so enthralled in this story you will not want to book it down.
The next time I woke the window revealed darkness. I felt irritated, but wasn’t sure why. Maybe because the neurologist never came like he said he would. Maybe because I hurt. I hurt everywhere. Even my eyes. Maybe the agitation came from seeing him. Why? Why was he there? Why couldn’t he just go away? I gave him a dirty look and hit my call button.
Paxton nobly walked to my side. “I can help you. What do you need?”
I shoved his hand away from mine. With all my might, I tried to move. Just rolling to my side caused excruciating pain. Pain like I had never felt in my life. At least not that I remembered.
My voice raised, yet it was faint. “I want out of this bed, I want to know what’s wrong with me, and I want you to go away. That’s what I need!” Faded words was all that I could muster. It even pained me to raise my voice. My muscles didn’t work, and the ones that did, hurt too much to move.
“Seriously? Tears? Give me a fucking break,” Paxton said, arrogant tone and all.
I wanted to tell him off, tell him to go fuck himself. The words were on the tip of my tongue, but they never formed in my mouth. The pain wouldn’t let them.
“What can we do for you, Gabriella?” Another new nurse asked. She moved around me, checking vitals and the drip in my I.V. while she spoke.
“I have to pee, and I need something for pain.”
“You have a catheter, but I can give you something for the pain. Tell me where the pain level is, one to ten.”
“Ten, more than ten. Oh, God. Give me something. Please,” I begged. My neck and shoulders hurt every time I moved my head, but I couldn’t help it. I was in unbearable pain, and nothing else was on my mind. I just wanted it to stop.
“Where’s the pain, Gabriella?”
“I don’t know. All over. My head, my neck, my back, my leg. It hurts everywhere. And it still feels like I have to pee.”
“Let me get you some Dilaudid. I’ll be right back.”
I squirmed as much as possible while I waited for relief, holding a flat hand over my face. Trying to squeeze the pain from my temples didn’t work at all. It still hurt.
“Shhh, I’ve got you. Just relax.” Soft words were whispered into my ear and Paxton’s warm body blanketed my chest. His hands moved around me and he held me close to him. The scent of “Stop fighting it, Gabriella. You’re only making it worse. You’re okay. I’ve got you,” he said in a quiet tone while leaving soft kisses around my neck. It’s stupid, but it did feel like it helped, like maybe some of the pain was lifted.
Tears slid down both of my eyes and he kissed them away, shushing me with soft words. Confusing emotions flooded my body while I wept in the arms of a man I didn’t know. I didn’t know what to say, what to feel, what to do, nothing. I knew nothing.
My name is Jettie Woodruff. I am from Ohio. I don't know what genre I write in. People tell me I have my own genre. I write whatever I feel, because that’s what makes me happy. I don’t want to be in that box where I can only write one genre. I tend to like my bad boy's, taboo; the touchy subjects that make you want to throw your kindle. Usually at said hot alpha male. Sometimes the female lead as well. My motto is life is short. Very short. If it doesn't make you happy anymore then why do it? Move on. Some of my favorite things, besides writing are, friends, family, and the beach. Music, although my interest has changed after forty, I like the new stuff. Happy Reading.
