“A superbly written and beautifully haunting love story, that is gut wrenching and raw. These characters, this story—it will stay with you. Brava.”
-- Trilina Pucci, author
We Are Us, an all-new, edge-of-your-seat and compelling love story from Tara Leigh is out now!
I fell in love with a beautiful, broken boy.
His whispered words of love were the sweetest of lies.
He gave me his heart and destroyed mine.
I am his.
I fell in love with the beautiful man who broke me.
His boldly spoken vow was the cruelest of cages.
He gave me his name and destroyed my soul.
He is mine.
The boy I once loved is now a man.
The man I once loved is now gone.
We are us.
I have been called many things.
Victim. Survivor. Daughter. Sister. Wife.
Now I am called something else.
Believe it or not, this is our love story.

This book was...heavy. It was emotionally exhausting. It was heartbreaking, and it was beautiful.
Lord, this review is hard to write. Let me backup a bit by saying that I loved this book. But loving it doesn’t mean that I’ll have an easy go at expressing my feelings about it. I’ve been putting off writing this review for a few days because I’ve been processing everything I read. I think, maybe, I can finally put the words down.
Poppy and Gavin both come from difficult backgrounds, and their childhood friendship provides an escape from that. It provides them comfort. I liked seeing their relationship grow and develop from the awkward start to an all encompassing love. You really get to watch them grow.
A series of circumstances separate Poppy and Gavin, and Jesus, that was hard to not feel devastated for them both. Poppy’s grief over Gavin’s absence was palpable.
Insert Tucker. I spent a good portion of this book feeling really confused and conflicted on how I felt about him. Much like Poppy, I’m sure. I think Ms. Leigh did a phenomenal job at really putting me inside Poppy’s mind and heart. I was upset in regards to some of Poppy’s decisions, but now I know that all of that stuff was setting the stage for a much more complicated situation.
I know I’m being vague in this review, but I really can’t get into specifics. As a reader, I think I would be doing you a huge disservice to rob you of the experience of walking the journey with Poppy and Gavin. Even Tucker, as much as I grew to dislike him.
I will say this, and mean it with my whole heart, I love this book. It’s a departure from Tara Leigh’s other books, and it’s definitely darker, but it’s no less amazing. I do wish that there was more page time dedicated to Poppy and Gavin’s relationship. I did feel like this book wasn’t quite a full romance novel. In my opinion, It felt more like women’s fiction with romantic elements. No matter how you see it, it was beautifully written.
I still feel kinda wrung out, and it’s been a few days since I put the book down. I think I felt every emotion possible while reading this book. When an author does that to you, I think it’s a sign of a magical talent.
