Blog Tour, Review, & Giveaway for Let It Be Me by Toni Aleo

Let It Be Me
By: Toni Aleo

Do you see that woman there?
The one with long, wavy blond hair and blue eyes that used to sparkle?
That’s me, Violet Moore.
Do you see those men over there?
One is my husband, Rob.
A man who claimed he loved me, but proved his fist loved me more.
The other is Tucker McCloud, my savior and confidant.
I'm torn between what's right and my own fear.
But not anymore.
I’m taking my life back now.
I will fight back.
I will be happy.

My 4 Star Review: 

Get a blanket and maybe a glass of wine, you’re going to need it, because my story isn’t a happy one, well no, I take that back. It can be happy, I can be happy; I just have to get there. I have to fight for it. So sit back and let me explain how the fight was woken inside me.
It starts and ends with Tucker McCloud.

Let it Be Me is very dark, emotional, & gritty this is not your everyday type of read that is for sure. This story is about domestic abuse and violence and Toni holds nothing back while writing this story. 

As a former abused person, I had a hard time with this story, I wanted to many times to just stop reading it and not look back, but I could not do that, something told me I had to read this story and find out whether or not Violet came out on top of her abuse. I needed to know that someone else made it out alive. 

When you start this story you instantly hate Rob, I don’t blame you I hated him in the first 2 pages. You’re going to ask yourself what the hell is wrong with her? Why isn’t she just leaving, getting out while she has the chance? Toni takes you on a journey with Violet that shows you the answers to these questions and many more. Some people think it is easy to just walk away from an abusive relationship and not look back, but what people don’t understand is there is a major fear placed inside a victim of abuse by their abuser and sometimes it is not easy to just walk away when you want to. 

I watched and cringe while I read what Violet goes through, thinking jesus just get the strength to get out, I wanted to reach into the story and help her so many times. I thought so many times she is never going to get out of this alive. He is going to kill her. 

Then the light at the end of the tunnel comes into focus and we meet the Mc Clouds…….

Violet starts a new job and she is working as an office manager in a doctor’s office. This is where she meets Tucker. His dad owns the practice and is retiring and turning it all over to him. There is an instant attraction between Violet and Tucker, but Violet knows it can never be anything she wants until she gets completely away from Rob. 

I didn’t know it then, but the McClouds were going to change my life.
And they did change her life, want to know how Buy this amazing book and read it for yourself.
