Sometimes death isn't the end. Sometimes it's a beautiful beginning...
For some, it's simply one of life's certainties, nothing more. For others, it's merely a fleeting thought, one often overshadowed by the reckless delusion that they have been blessed with the gift of immortality.
For Aubrey Miller, death is the definition of her very existence. Overcome with the guilt resulting from the loss of her beloved family, she alters her appearance from the once beautiful, blonde-haired, blue-eyed little girl to that of one shrouded in complete darkness, enveloping herself in her own unbreakable fortress of solitude as a form of protection for others.
As she enters her first year of college, her goal is simple: Earn a degree with the least amount of social interaction as possible. What she never anticipates is the formation of very unlikely relationships with two people who will change her life in ways she never believed possible: Quinn Matthews, the boisterous former pageant queen, and Kaeleb McMadden, a childhood friend from her past who never really let her go.
Over the years, as their connections intertwine and grow, a seemingly indestructible bond is formed between the three...
But when death painfully reemerges, Aubrey is lost once again, burying herself deeper than ever before inside the familiar fortification of her fears.
Will the refuge of friendship, the solidarity of life-long bonds, and the power of unconditional love be enough to do the impossible?
Will they be enough to finally bring about...
The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller?
What a great read. This book covers a lot of real life issues. I think the storyline was unique and I’m not quite sure I’ve read a book like this one. The is the first book I’ve read by Author L.B. Simmons. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had read numerous reviews before starting and for the most part they were all pretty positive with high ratings. It’s because of this that I decided to give it a try. I’m glad that I did. It held my attention all the way through. At no point did I find myself skimming.
The characters were all very interesting. Especially Aubrey. She has major issues that she’s dealing with. Well, maybe not dealing with. She’s sort of filed them away in different bins in her brain. I felt really bad for her. She’s had a hard life. All of her family members have been taken from her at different points in her life. The friendship she strikes up with Quinn and Kaeleb is strong from the beginning. They just click as friends right away. I enjoyed slipping into their world and getting to know them. Each of them are flawed and are dealing with their own issues. I think it’s because of this that they were able relate to one a other.
The sexual aspects of this story are very limited and I was ok with that. Sex wasn’t the main focus of this story. The storyline was strong enough that it didn’t need it. Don’t get me wrong though. This is a romance. There is sex and foreplay. Just not a lot of it.
Overall, I really enjoyed The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller. I can see myself reading it again at some point in the future. I think Ms Simmons did an excellent job writing it and I’m excited about reading more of her work in the future.
If your a fan of contemporary romance that deals with real life issues that’s well written then this book is for you.
