The Story Of Us - Carnage #1

Lesley Jones


The Story Of Us I love him, from the instant I set eyes on him when I was just 11 years old I have loved him and nothing will ever change that, he owns me, he owns my heart and he owns my body and no matter how many lies are told, no matter how many people conspire to keep us apart, despite the fame and the distance, we will find a way.

"Georgia Rae, when we made love you used to cry" ... He waits for me to sing my bit. I try to swallow down a sob but I just end up singing through it...
"I said I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die"

Carnage is an edgy coming of age love story that breaks all the rules and transcends the decades. Georgia and Sean's story will stay with you long after you read the final word.
An emotional, smoking hot, gut wrenching read.

NOTE: This is part #1 of a 2 part story but can be read as a stand alone.

The Review

Guest Review by Kaylene

Five big bright shiny gold stars for this fantastic book ...

I really am not sure how to write this review! I want to make sure that I do the author and the story justice. It's probably one of the best stories I've read, but it has left me with a gut wrenching book hangover. To say I loved this book would be an understatement and I wanted to give it 10 bright shiny gold stars, but I am only allowed to give it 5, so 5 it is. I also want to thank the author for the dark circles under my eyes from not being able to put the Kindle down at 2am and having to get up at 7am for work.

Alright, let's get on with the actual review. The story starts out with you meeting Georgia Rae, a very young 11 year old girl who meets and falls in love with Sean an up and coming musician in the rock band Carnage. They have that earth shattering love, the kind of love you have when you meet your true soul mate. He owns her and she owns him, heart, body and soul. Even from a very young age, they know they are going to be with each other until the day they die.

This book follows the story of the Georgia and Sean through their adolescence and coming of age and then onwards through their lives. It follows their trials and tribulations, their ups and downs, their good times and bad and everything in between.

Georgia has another love interest during the book and Cam is very swoon worthy. I loved the role Cam played in this book, he loved Georgia so much.

This book is steamy, hot with alpha males. Georgia is a strong willed girl and she turns into a very strong woman. The story is gut wrenchingly good, but be prepared the ending is a shocker and I now have the worst book hangover ever, so much so I am going to stalk the author.

Lesley Jones, you are a brilliant author and I look forward to reading more of your creations. Thank you very much for the opportunity to read this book as an ARC and I hope you allow me the great privilege to read for you again.
