    One thought on “Left”

    1. Yep that's me after reading this. Oh how I love triangles and best friends=lovers equally. I long for them! I turned into a I'll love anything with Alpha's. I prefer extreme but hey, I love them all! I'm usually not satisfied with not enough involvement between the two alpha's in triangles. This one had a lot! I need them to fight over her, each one always intruding on the other. Colt, what an ass he ended up being! Just like the syp said about what his plans, nobody saw it coming? I'd have to a [...]

    2. I'm excited to reveal that I've written the first book, Left, in a new series, Still Standing. Left is not a book I'd planned to write. It's a story that found me and would not let me go until it was done. In fact, I was nearly finished writing Underground (Secrets #2) (84k words) when I had a dream one that haunted me for the entire day afterward. I tried to stay focused on Underground (Secrets #2), but Left's (Baylee's) story couldn't be silenced. I decided to take an hour and write [...]

    3. review also posted here : facebook/SLiTsReaDI cannot say enough how I enjoyed and loved this book. I went from anxious to hurt, to swooning, to crying my eyes out. Loved, loved it. Lots of angst. I fell in love with Baylee right away, the things she would do for the person she love. She's hot, sweet, funny and a fighter. I love when she dresses and tries and seduce her man ;) She thought she's finally gonna get proposed from her boyfriend. She's been with Colt for 4 years, sacrificing everything [...]

    4. Well, I'm going to have to agree with another reader that the novel is definitely full of drama. There's plenty of it. As for the romance, it didn't work for me. Everything about it felt rushed, even robotic at times (if that makes any sense). As for sexual chemistry, there was absolutely none between them - zero, zilch, nada - not even a spark. "I want you to stop fighting this thing between me and you. It's bigger than both of us, and I'm convinced there's a reason we met."Are you kidding me? [...]

    5. Let me start off by asking who is this author and where has she been? I can’t believe this book was written in 4 weeks. I need warn readers though, it ends with a cliffhanger, it sucks I know, but as far as endings with cliffhangers go, this is by far the best I have read. (Loved that twist at the end).I’ve been numbingly reading so many books lately and haven’t crossed one that has caught my full attention like this one. As soon as I read the prologue, I knew I was in for something good. [...]

    6. *ARC provided by Author for Honest Review*I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t expecting it to be bad but I wasn’t expecting it to be so great and for me to love it as much as I did. I was apprehensive to start this one considering the blurb. I mean I didn’t expect a blossoming romance to work so well considering the circumstances nor did I factor in Ryker. One of the things I loved most about the story was how invested I became early on. I even grew an af [...]

    7. **4.5 Stars**Holy s#it! This is one intense read! There are so many twists and turns - I had a really hard time putting Left down. Having read Ms. Graves before, I knew I liked her writing style. But Left just blew me away! I hope I can put my feelings into words in some sort of coherent mannerBaylee Messenger suffered the traumatic loss of her mom when she was only 10. Twelve years later, she has a college degree, a successful career, and a loving, stable boyfriend of four years. Life seems gra [...]

    8. While I'm very sorry for all you've gone through, I can't help but thank my lucky stars that you are now available so blokes the likes of me will have a shot at dating an angel,"Oh.My.Gosh. This my dears was one amazing book. I enjoyed it so much that I literally couldn't put it down for a minute. Left was such an emotional rollercoster. Baylee was such a sweet and caring character. I loved her from the beginning. Bay here is a naive girl whose irrevocably in love with her boyfriend of 4 years, [...]

    9. This book was a very emotional one for me. The theme was one that often gets a lot of notice but the author has done some major justice to our female lead as well as to the theme. She didn't make her a weak and snivelling idiot or make her unrealistic in any way. She was just a naive girl in love with her most perfect boyfriend. It just turned out he wasn't who we all thought he was.For me Ryker was amazing from the second he was introduced I just wanted her to grab him and run away with him. No [...]

    10. I am shedding tears of stars. Wait, that didn't make sense.This story was incredibly amazing. From the beginning, it came with a bang, that followed through with a POW! BOOM! BING! SHAZAM! And ended with the CRASH! That's how great this was. Not to mention, the cover was beautiful as well.The storyline was very well developed. It was thoroughly thought out and was clear. I was never confused or befuddled at what was going on. As a reader I know what I like and these damsel in distress stories ge [...]

    11. 5 Stars!I finished reading this in the wee hours of the morning. My huz resorted to nudging me several times to tell me to go to sleep but I just can't stop reading! I would put it down but eventually open my lights, pick up my reader and continue reading! It happened three times! My huz just shakes his head since he knows it's one of those books. :)Honestly I was expecting another fiftyesque book but this was totally different and I couldn't be happier. There were no over the top sex scenes but [...]

    12. This was an incredible book. I couldn't put it down.How do you go from happily ever after to your worst nightmare in 2.5 seconds? When you see white picket fences and PTA but are informed none of that will happen because a master manipulator's whims don't include you. When you are suddenly thrown off a cliff by the man you adore only to find the lifeline he's thrown to you is frayed and unwinding in your hands. Somehow, step by step, you just go on.The h of this story is a lot stronger than she [...]

    13. BLOWN AWAYSo there are no other words than to say I loved this book! Ryker has been promoted to my 2nd book boyfriend (: there is so much compassion and love going on that the bad isn't so bad at time and it ends on a good note I mean it's kind of a cliffhanger but one of the good ones I'm not ranting about that and that is why it got the 5th star!

    15. I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching For Books for letting me be apart of another great tour!T.R. Graves created a wonderful story. It had my heart broken into tiny peaces, it made me angry at some point. It’s rare an author manages to put such feelings into me just by it’s writing. For me, personally it’s honor I had the chance to read and review this book. It was an incredible journey.Our main character Baylee it’s a beautiful young girl, kind of wee [...]

    16. Review to come. This is one of those books that suck you in immediately. You can feel Baylee's joy as she's telling her friend that she is expecting a proposal from her boyfriend of four years. You even get a little annoyed at the friend as she's asking, "But HOW do you know?" as if she's trying to burst Baylee's bubble. Secure in knowing that she found a ring and is expecting a proposal, you are enjoying the romance of her trying to keep the spark in her relationship with Colt which has been wa [...]

    17. if more stars where available to me id use them! Review soon!First lets admire the cover. I love it, its beautiful and unlike most covers these days there is NO COUPLE ALMOST KISSING!! Yes, I do like those covers im guilty however I do enjoy when a artist thinks out the box.Now lets get down to the nitty gritty. Left is not what I expected at all. I ran through a plethora of emotions. Baylee’s mother committed suicide after the painful and heartwretching delivery of a stillborn child. Severely [...]

    18. Full Blog Post @Book-Marks the SpotOh man all the emotions that are swelling up in me. This book was tough to read- and not because it was a bad book, because it wasn’t. I loved every minute of this book. It was the situations in the book that were tough to get through. Baylee goes though so much in this book and I can’t help but cry every time I think about it. This review was not typed with dry eyes. This book touches you and makes you want to help anyone who has or is being mentally or ph [...]

    19. Baylee has been with Colton for four years. He is a lawyer working long hours for his father trying to make partner. She used to be a nurse and loved it but Colts dad didn't so she changed her job and now she is a Healthcare Project Manager. While at lunch with co-worker, her boyfriend walks in with one of the partners at the law office. Baylee tries to play it off and continues to do everything to show colt that she loves him. She gets all done up, wax and all, for her date with Colt where she [...]

    20. Honesty, this is the best book I read this month. I loved it right from the beginning because the atmosphere was different from the one in the books I’ve recently read. To be honest, it bothered me a bit the fact that I knew what was going to happen in the first chapter, but I loved that what happened next was completely unexpected. The plot, as you might have realized by now, is intriguing and very well written. The author managed to capture my attention and hold it until I finished reading t [...]

    21. Left is a beautiful and tragic story that took my breath away at times. Baylee is living her dream life with the man she loves until he decides to break it off with her to marry a woman more suitable to his father’s approve. This sets in motion, events that Baylee had no idea would ever happen. These events create a story that I will continue to think about for a very long time. First, while this story starts out gently, it quickly becomes darker. Left is a love story but it is also a story th [...]

    22. 3.5 StarsThis was an interesting story where the plot seems like it's been done before but the way the author was able to pull emotions (laughing or on the verge of tearing up) out of me several times throughout the book really impressed me I was able to read this book in one day, which goes to show how it really pulled me in There was a feeling that some of the things that happened in this story weren't really realistic (like Ryker not knowing who Colt was, the connection between everyone, Bayl [...]

    23. Originally reviewed at Sunshine Fiction ReviewsI cannot say how much I enjoyed this book. I mean, everything was so hectic and I had to squeeze this book in to be able to do the tour. And after I started, I couldn't stop. Like, at all.LEFT tells the story of Baylee. Baylee thought that she loved the right man, she thought that Colt was going to propose to her but instead, he dumped her. Baylee is weak or fragile like most with her past. Her mother committed suicide and everybody expects her to d [...]

    24. All I can say is WOW! What a story! Baylee's mom committed suicide when Baylee was 10 years old and Baylee does not know why. Her father is a doctor in Africa so Bay is left alone a lot. She is pretty much on her own! Baylee is so afraid of getting left by the people she loves, that she overlooks their dangerous shortcomings and sees them as she wants them to be rather than who they really are. Colt, her boyfriend of four years, dumps her in a restaurant and writes her a check like she is a chea [...]

    25. 5 Heart Touching Stars OMG this book just has me speechless. The emotions and pain that T.R portrays in this book is beyond real and had me ugly crying!! Baylee is an amazing strong character who goes through a lot in Left but outshines it all and is the definition of a Heroine in my eyes. Baylee has been with Colt for 4 years and she thinks that even though their relationship isnt the greatest hes gonna propose. When her world comes crashing down and he breaks up with her. Then the knight in sh [...]

Graves then moves us into a world where domestic violence is real and shows us through her characters what it is like to deal with a difficult situation and how the main character Baylee learns that what is wrong with her world is classified as domestic violence. It is something that moves into Baylee’s life slowly and when she realizes what is going o [...]

    28. This book is amazing with so much emotion I don't even know where to start. Everything about this book is so captivating it just sucks you right in. The love, the anger, the deception/betrayal and lets not forget the crazy. Oh my goodness the crazyere are no words. It's unbelievable to see how fast someone can spiral out of control. Baylee comes to terms with the fact that she can't take Colt back because he's being controlled by his father and will never be his own man yet she ends up with Ryke [...]

    29. This is a fantastic read! The combination of a woman's strength & pureness of mind & body combined with the message of domestic abuse was told so brilliantly told that I never lost interest. Baylee & Colt seem to be the perfect couple until events start happening that will take your breath away. When Ryker comes on the scene, you'll lose your breath also, but for VERY different reasons! Definately for adult readers, you might find yourself making comparisons between Ryker and Christi [...]

    30. I don'tI don't even know. This started off interesting. And then it went to shit. You JUST left a relationship and you're going to jump to the next guy. Like legit the next day. And you say I love you within a week? The only reason I gave this book two stars was because of Baylee's back story with her family. I wanted to connect with her, but I just could not. She was a weak character ( not in the sense of her being in an abusive relationship) but of letting Ryker do all these things for her. Bu [...]
