Loving Amber - Tour & Review


Loving Amber
by Roya Carmen



New Second Chance standalone from Roya Carmen


Now Live!!!



Torn by tragedy. Reunited by love.

Two years ago, I lost my husband and my brother to the same tragedy. To this day, I hold only one person responsible—Aiden Rogers, the beautiful boy I’ve known forever, the misfit I’ve both loved and hated, the one who always got to me. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the only one to blame.

Now he wants to be part of my life again—when I can finally see a future for my son and myself. I’ve found the perfect man in David, someone I can start over with, a man who will be the perfect father figure for Trevor. I have a plan. At last, I see the light, and I know I can make this work.

I will not let Aiden Rogers drag me back into the darkness.


Author's note: contains sexual scenes and some coarse language.

This is the first book of the Riverstone Estate Series and can be enjoyed as a standalone read.

Following the sudden passing of their father, Amber, Ruby, and Flynn Riverstone inherit the family estate and find themselves facing new challenges, growing closer, and discovering love along the way.



I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Loving Amber is a story of friendship, tragedy, betrayal, love and moving on. As you can probably tell from the synopsis, Amber has a complicated history with Aiden. Ranging from childhood enemy to sometimes friend, she now sees him as a reminder of everything she lost, and holds him responsible for the deaths of her husband and brother.  

Amber has experienced a lot of loss and grief over recent years, but although she faces a constant battle to move on, I never really saw her as a victim. Yes, she's really sad and overprotective, but she works so hard to give her son a happy family life.

One of my favourite parts of the story were the little insights into the characters and their shared past. Roya Carmen includes some really sweet childhood memories then juxtaposes them with moments of heartbreak. 

I had my doubts about one of the characters pretty early on so I didn't celebrate being right. I'm not sure how I would have handled certain revelations but it definitely would not have been in a calm manner. I'm still undecided how I feel about it but in the end it was all part of Amber's story.

I have to admit I have read a few similar themed stories recently but nevertheless I appreciated Amber's struggle. In Loving Amber Roya Carmen produces a detailed look at the heartache caused from one moment of stupidity. It's not all doom and gloom as we see Amber trying to move on and to ignore a certain someone but some sassy naughty scenes...

Excerpt:

“The dress will need to come off,” I tell her with a playful smile—I want her to feel at ease.
She turns to the side and unzips herself, reaches for the skirt of her dress, and pulls it over her head. She’s wearing a sexy pink lace bra and matching thong. I wonder if she slipped those on thinking of me. Or David? I wonder how long it would take me to rip it all off. She peeks at me through her lashes, still shy but aroused. Her gaze finally reaches mine, and it’s pleading, begging me to come to her.
I kneel in front of her. I desperately want to kiss her—she’s just so beautiful. But I know that if I kiss her, I’ll get lost in her and I’ll want to make love to her. She and I together is a very bad plan. Too much history there, and even after all we’ve been through, I can only see her as Paul’s girl. But right now, she’s just a woman who desperately needs to touched, and I’m the man who desperately wants to touch her. I trace the lacy edges of her bra with my finger. She’s breathing so hard her chest is heaving. I pull the fabric with a finger and tuck it under, revealing her breast. Wow.
