Nine years after a tragic accident, Hannah “Brennley” Evans has returned home to the snowy mountains of Whistler, Canada. This is the very place that destroyed her, where her whole world ended, and the reason she now goes by Hannah Jennings.
Struggling with his own tragic past, Rhys Axton, an infamous sexy snowboarding champion, wants nothing more than to be the next Olympic hopeful. Sex, snowboarding, and working out are all he cares about, which helps shut off the demons that haunt him and the family who rejected him.
The moment Hannah walks into his room, he knows something is different about her. Drawn to her, he can’t seem to stay away from the mysterious, guarded girl. They are two heartbroken souls who both understand the darkness.
Little does he know she lives in lies and carries secrets that will bring his universe to its knees and secrets that will bury them both alive.
Ms. Brown has been my new favorite romance author for a couple of years now. This contemporary romance does not disappoint. You will fall in love with Hannah and Rhys and the way they find each other when they need it most.
Heartbreaking, emotional, yet amazing read!
If there were any doubt about Brown writing a contemporary, I’m certain that Buried Alive will make everyone believe she’s capable of doing so. I’m happy to say that this one has made my #RSFave list for 2018 and it’s the first. I love that I’m starting out my year strong with some amazing reads.
The main that I love about Stacy’s paranormal/fantasy reads is the storyline and how all of the characters draw you in during every page. I was curious to read how she’d make that happen with this contemporary read. Let me tell you, Buried Alive will take you on one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride.
It’s pretty clear from the beginning that Rhys and Hannah have their own dark past they’re dealing with. As you make your way through the book, you get to not only see the shell of who they are, but their personal darkness that they’re just wallowing in. When these two come together, the connection is instant, but secrets are there alongside with something familiar. The sad thing is that Hannah is holding quite a few secrets of her own and is trying her best to keep her distance from Rhys.
Rhys can’t seem to get enough of Hannah, he’s intrigued and nearly consumed by her. Rhys quickly figures out that she’s hiding something from him, it becomes more noticeable as he slowly breaks down her walls. He doesn’t push her too much, but you can slowly see her crack.
The entire time, you’ll be wondering what the hell the big secrets are. And boy, when you learn them towards the end … it was not what I was expecting! It caught me completely off-guard and holy sh*t, I didn’t see that coming. And that’s when I knew that Stacey has contemporary in the bag. She had me hooked from page one, the struggles that both of her characters endured and how they were able to move past that pain and come together.
Prepare to have your mind blown by this heartbreaking and emotionally filled story! They both have so much to conquer before they get their happy ever after. Such an amazing read that doesn’t disappoint!
