Release Day Blitz + Review: Thicker than Water by Dylan Allen

descriptionLucia Vega is on a winning streak.
Her book, Throw Away the Key has taken the country by storm.
And now it’s being made into a movie.
After years of chasing it, she can finally taste freedom. 

Reece Carras is one of the most powerful men in Hollywood. 
Handsome, rich and generous, he’s everything girls like her aren’t supposed to dream of.
But dream she does. And in his strong arms she finds a freedom she never even knew existed. 

Falling in love is the easy part…
Cruel twists of fate and torn loyalties will make staying together seem impossible.
Sacrifices will have to be made.
And they will learn that blood may be thicker than water, 
But nothing is more powerful than two hearts that beat for each other.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t even know where to begin with this review, but first off I just want to say how inspiring and beautiful this book is. It tackles a difficult subject but also has an heart felt gorgeous love relationship imbedded into the plot..

Lucia is living in limbo is the best way to put it, on the edge and uncertain of the way her future will pan out. She is an undocumented citizen which means she is pretty scared but also it’s the only life she knows. She’s also strong, tough and has a beautiful soul.. She though has written a story about her upbringing but using characters that are unknown to her own identity.. so it’s kind of a story within a story to begin with, I love these kinds of reads. They’re more powerful and thought provoking and once more keeps me on my toes.

Then there’s Reece, whom is the owner of a big company that wants to tell Lucia’s story to the world in film. But ends up falling for Lucia when he didn’t really want to.. “he lied about his feelings” and well we all know how that goes right?!

I hope I’m not giving too much away here, but I just want to say this book is such a powerful, yet stunning soul searching read if there ever was one. I’m just not sure how to put my emotions into words. But if you want something raw, real but still has a gorgeous love relationship that will grow on you the more you read. Then please pick this story you, I promise you won’t regret it..

Enjoy, katy Xoxo
