Release Blitz & Review for Life After Taylah by Bella Jewel

LAT Banner  
Title: Life After Taylah
Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: May 26, 2014
My mother's name is Taylah, and once, a very long time ago, she was my best friend - she was everything I wanted to be.

Until the night she disappeared.

Ten years on and my life, my families lives and the world around us has never been the same again.
How can it be when you are left not knowing?

No leads. No connections. Nothing. Just pure emptiness.

My dancing is the only way I can separate myself from the pain that lies in my home, in my father's eyes and in my brother's spirit. They need me and I'll fight with everything I am to be there for them, but who will be there for me?

Then I meet Nate.

Champion Motocross racer and everything my father doesn't want for me. He's forbidden, he's beautiful, and he's carrying a bundle of his own secrets.

When I step into his world, there is no turning back.

He will consume me.

He will teach me how to breathe again.

He will put a tiny piece of my broken heart, back together.  
OMG, AHHHH-MAZING!!! Bella Jewel....I freaking LOVE you!!!

I started this book this morning and I was hooked from the prologue!! I could NOT put it down till I reached the end and even then I wanted more!!

After Avery's mother disappears without a trace when she is 13 years old her life takes a dramatic change. It is a constant struggle just to make it day by day and time never heals her hurt. Her father changes, her brother Liam changes..and not for any good. All she has in her life to hide the pain is her dancing...that is until she meets Nate.

My mother was my sunshine, my happy place, my best friend and hero, she broke us when she went missing - intentionally or not. Now we're seeing what it's like to live with life after Taylah

Nate....HOLLLLY SWOON!!! I loved Nate!! When Avery and Nate meet their chemistry is off the charts but a relationship is the last thing the two can have because he is married and she is taken herself. All Nate wants is to be with Avery but there is something very important holding him back. No matter how torn he is he knows he has to do the right thing and stay away from Avery but they will soon learn that is easier said then done.

"Do you know what I would give to wake up beside you every morning? To feel you in my arms each night? Do you know, Dancer, what I would give?"


"You think this is easy for me?" he rasps. "You think its f*ckin easy falling in love with you and knowing I can't have you whenever I want?"

There are so many twists and turns going on you just can't stop reading. When you learn the truth on some things your jaw will just keep hitting the floor. I LOVED some of the secondary characters like Kelly, Max, Keanu and Liam. They were such a great group of guys I am hoping we get a book on each of them as well!!!

Bella Jewel....You are so freaking AWESOME!!!! I love each and every one of your books and can't wait to see what you come up with next!!

 5 Amazing Snowflakes from me!!
This is my 5 star review for Life After Taylah by Bella Jewel for Eskimo Princess Book Reviews.

Life After Taylah is about Avery, a young ballet dancer that has been lost and broken since her mother and best friend, Taylah went missing ten years ago. She is beautiful and has so many things pulling her down. She has been dealing with everything on her own, and she is so tired. Then one night everything changes. Will she be able to get out of the relationship that has been dragging her down? Will the special men in her life overrule the ones that treat her like she doesn’t matter?

When Nathaniel Alexander, world champion motocross racer, meets the lovely Avery something comes alive in him that has been dormant for way too long. He is married but his marriage is only alive for the Macy. Will he be able to walk away from a friendship and chance at real love? Will someone come along and snag Avery’s heart before he has a chance to choose?

I can honestly say that I didn’t know what I was getting into when I signed up for Life After Taylah but boy am I glad I did. I thought that the story was very well written. Yes there is cheating in this one but it is done in a way that doesn’t make cheating okay but it makes it understandable. I loved Avery and Nate. I thought that they were so good together. Macy was such a great little girl; she sure did pull at the heart strings that is for sure. This story was both tragic and beautiful; it was passionate and raw, and it has stuck with me since I finished. I only wished it would have been longer...

If you are looking for an awesome book with a fantastic list of characters then this one is for you! I really, really, hope that Bella decides to continue on with stories for Liam, Max, Keanu, and Kelly. I would love to see these great guys get their hearts mended and their HEA’s too!
