Only the Positive - Release Blitz with Giveaway

Title: Only the Positive
Series: Only You #1
Author: Elle Thorpe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: September 20, 2018


I made a mistake that might have ruined someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.

All she wanted was one night. That, I could do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me. With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar. Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.

Review by Barbara

WOW! The author has written a wonderful romance that has a backstory that affects so many people and their loved ones in real life. I simply Loved the authors touching and heartfelt storyline that pulled at my emotions and left me rocked to the core at times.

Reese is a broken woman. She blames herself for a horrific act that has left her estranged from her family. She tries to cope with the inner pain with alcohol and men; anything to let her dull the pain for a few brief hours. That and post it notes. She keeps them all around her with positive expressions written on them to encourage herself to move forward every day. Reese has taken a new job as a bartender at a local racetrack, which is where she meets Low. Low is sexy, flirty and everyone wants a night with him. Which is good with him since he doesn’t do repeats. But when he meets Reese he senses she special and he really wants to get to know her. But when life throws Low a major blow, he’s lost, with no clue what to do or how to cope. Like Reese he start to push everyone away and starts a downward spiral. Can these two possibly help one another and find ways to cope with life’s traumatic events?

I can’t begin to say how moving this book was for me. It’s so much more than just a wonderful romance. Kudos to the author for a phenomenal job. I highly recommend grabbing it up ASAP. You won’t regret it. 2 Huge Thumbs Up and 5 Amazing Stars from this reader.

Review by Kathy

What an extraordinarily well written story that will tug your emotions right out of you. Not your typical romance, you will find Reese, broken as she blames herself for a horrific act that has caused her estrangement from her family. She has spiraled down, coping with the pain by using alcohol and men just for a little while. She takes a new job as a bartender at a racetrack where she meets the handsome and sexy Low. One night, that's all she wants and is all he is ever willing to give. But Low sees Reese as something special, until something happens that throws his own world into a tailspin, having him spiraling out of control and pushing everyone away. Can these two broken people fix each other? Do they have what it takes to make the other see Only the Positive? 

These characters are so very well written and quite well developed. A storyline written with such emotion and feeling that you will not be able to put it down once you have started. 
I cannot recommend this book highly enough! Kudo's to the author for a superb read! 

Author Bio

Elle Thorpe lives on the sunny east coast of Australia, about an hour out of Sydney. When she's not writing stories full of kissing and chemistry, she's a wife, and mummy to three tiny humans. She's also official ball thrower to one slobbery dog named Rollo. Yes, she named a female dog after a male character on Vikings. Don't judge her. Elle is a complete and utter fangirl at heart, obsessing over The Walking Dead and Outlander to an unhealthy degree. But she wouldn't change a thing.
