The Difference Between Someday & Forever by Aly Martinez ~ Blog Tour w/ 5 Star Review & Excerpt!

The world took everything from us.

And we would stop at nothing until we took it all back—forever.

The Difference Between Someday and Forever, the much anticipated and stunning conclusion to The Difference Trilogy from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is now live!

The world took everything from us.

As survivors of not only a plane crash, but two other impossible tragedies, we’d more than earned a life of peace. But time and time again, we were shown that fate had no intention of giving that to us.

Remi and I were soulmates. Plain and simple. Our love should have died in the depths of our darkness, but the sun still exists even when it’s not shining.

The secrets of our past threatened to destroy us at every turn, but for Remi, I would never stop fighting for our future.

The world took everything from us.

And we would stop at nothing until we took it all back—forever.

Fall in love today!

This series is probably one of the best series I’ve read in a really long time. The characters nearly done me completely in and so perfect for one another. Aly did an amazing job with the story…the flow was perfect and the steam was amazing. It was addictive. This story was completely different, powerful and an all-around great read. I can’t wait for everyone to be able to read this because I know they’ll be shocked with everything just as much as I was. Enjoy this one folks!

Excerpt from The Difference Between Somebody and Someone

“Sorry, is my mood killing your buzz?” I asked.

Her blue eyes sparkled in the glow of the airplane reading light. “It really is.”

I shook my head and went back to mindlessly flipping the pages of a magazine I’d bought at the terminal back in Colorado. I’d picked it up with hopes it would be a distraction from the cyclone raging within me on our way back to Atlanta. The minute she ordered that drink, I’d known it was a lost cause.

Her hand came across the armrest and landed on my thigh. “Bowen, stop. It’s not a big deal.”

It was the truth. Compared to everything we’d been through, our house could have been swallowed by a sinkhole and it wouldn’t have been considered a big deal.

Honest to God, I was lucky to still have her at all. It had only been nine months since we’d met, but we’d lived a thousand lives in that time. Unfortunately, that also meant we’d died almost as many deaths.

Terrifying, tortuous, agony-filled deaths.

We’d also found love though—immeasurable amounts of it.

I stared down at her engagement ring. I’d cashed out a huge chunk of my savings account and still had to open a line of credit with the jewelry store to buy the three-karat princess-cut ring. The payment was roughly the same as I paid for my truck each month, but the tears in her eyes as she’d sat in her hospital bed, clutching it to her chest the day I proposed, made it all worth it.

She was worth it. Every day, every tear, every worry-filled minute shaved off my life.

I’d do it all again.

If only I weren’t so helpless to save her. I loved that woman. Whole heart. Whole soul. Bend me, break me, crack me open and she would have been there. No matter how bad it got, she was always a part of me.

I wasn’t sure anymore if she could say the same.

“Bowen,” she whispered, just as she’d done so many times before. It was a plea. One she knew I’d answer no matter the situation. No matter how mad I got. No matter how much I feared losing her again.

My gaze instinctively lifted to hers.

She smiled and the sight caused an ache in my chest. It was a lie.

God, I missed her smile.

“Baby, I’m okay.” She tilted her head to her drink. “I hate flying. That’s all this is.”

That was a lie too.

My shoulders fell and a loud breath tore from my burning lungs, but I let myself pretend, my mind going back to a time when it could have been the truth.

I thought of the nights we’d shared multiple bottles of wine and made love, laughing and moaning under the covers until the sun crept across the horizon. She’d rested peacefully in my arms. No nightmares. No crying in her sleep. No insomnia. Just even breaths, her head on my shoulder, and her body wound around mine so tightly it was like a second skin.

But that was the past.

The unreachable, insurmountable past.

The plane jerked, forcing me back to the present.

“Shit.” She moved her hand off my thigh to grasp her drink as it sloshed all over her. “Crap, crap, crap,” she chanted, using a cocktail napkin to dry the dark-red pool of tomato juice on her white pants.

For a moment, I sat there and watched her struggle. It wasn’t the most chivalrous thing to do, but I was all out of grand gestures.

She unbuckled her seat belt and lurched to her feet, her phone along with a handful of ice cubes from her lap falling to the floor. “Damn, this is going to leave a huge stain.”

The plane jerked again and she stumbled forward, crashing into the seat in front of her before I could catch her arm.

“Dammit, sit down before you get hurt.”

Ignoring me, she bent over to fish her phone from under the seat. “Hit the button for the flight attendant. I need some club soda and a lemon. STAT.”

“No, what you need is to sit down.”

I gave her arm a tug and dragged her down to the seat. Using the tip of my boot, I swept her phone toward her. Aforementioned lack of chivalry aside, I was no contortionist; leaning over to pick it up was out of the question.

She folded her upper body over my lap and blindly patted around the floor. I fought the urge to run my fingers through the back of her hair. In the beginning, it would have been a no-brainer. I’d have curled forward and suggestively whispered in her ear, “Since you’re already down there…”

She would have grinned up at me, her whole face filled with mischief as she traced a finger over my zipper, ignoring anyone who dared to watch her as she replied, “You mean down here?”

I’d have grabbed her hand and made her stop even though I was the one who had started it. She had no filter. She always took it one step too far. I’d loved that about her when we’d first met. It was fresh and exciting, a far cry from the stuffy women I’d dated in the past.

But now, she was in the past too.

We were in the past.

Gahhh! It takes A LOT for a book to make me cry. This one did. It wasn’t sad. It was just so full of laughs AND angst that it had me so torn. From the beginning I was hooked. As always with Jewel it’s an easy 5 star read. Does this woman every write a bad book? I’ve read them ALL and I don’t think so!

Shep and Sophie are comedic gold together! I laughed and giggled at their banter the entire book. Sophie is definitely a woman with the odds against her for love. Shep is jaded but knows when he’s got a good thing going on. Their story could be totally heartbreaking and parts of it literally broke me. Don’t skip out on this book, y’all! You’ll regret it if you do! Buckle up for some angst, laughter, and awww moments. Cause they’re soooo worth the ride!

They’re as different as night and day, yet I want them both.

Have you ever been sucked into a story, and you don’t want to get out? This story did that to me. I loved it so much. No…it’s not Dark and Erotic like I usually like to read. It’s not stuffed full with sex and naughtiness. Don’t get me wrong, it has a little. Enough to keep me interested but the storyline itself did it for me. I loved how the author gets you connected to the story and holds your attention till the very end.

This is a story about Frankie, a girl with a son, trying to get through college. She has to work as a stripper to make ends meet. Her luck is nonexistent in the very beginning, and you really feel for her. She has a classmate, Stella, who wants to help her out. She’ll give them a room in her apartment. Her roommate is moving out so it’ll help her out as well. When Stella’s big brother Orion needs a place to crash for the night, they crash into each other the next morning…and things change for them both. I loved the entire story and how things grow and change throughout. A TRUE LOVE STORY!

Steal a kiss from the pretty, green-eyed girl with the Irish mobster father.

Dying for.

Loving.

But I was a boy playing a man’s game.

Everyone who tore her from my arms, everyone who has ever hurt her, will suffer the consequences.

I have been in what feels like the longest reading slump ever. But this book…OMG this book yanked me right out of it. This is my first story by Catherine Wiltcher and not only was the writing style phenomenal, but the characters, the plot, the shitload of angst and darkness…oh, how I loved the darkness…all of it, phenomenal. Everything was so perfectly woven together to give us this mind blowing, non-stop, extremely fucked up yet insanely beautiful second chance, dark mafia romance.

“You will live by this oath, and you will die by this oath. You will be bound to it until the day you die.”

Frankie and Ada have both been through hell and back. Although Ada has no idea she once got Frankie through the most horrible night of his young life, years later they reunite but quickly are torn apart by violence and bloodshed. Frankie is driven away from the place he should rule, and Ada is forced back to a hell that makes even the worst day possible sound like a walk in the park on a sunny afternoon. Frankie made a promise to Ada and now 14 years later he’s back to fulfill that promise and more.

“Our chains had finally broken. The war was finally here.”

I loved Ada and Frankie both so much. Their loyalty, love and trust for each other was a beautiful thing. Frankie may be a force to be reckoned with, but Ada was unbreakable. She knew no matter what the devil told her that he would come back and break down the doors of hell to save her. Everything that she endured broke my heart for her…such an amazingly written character. They both were. There were also some fantastic secondary characters. Even someone I thought I hated turned into someone I shed tears for. There was so much tucked into the pages of this story. Their world was a dark, bloody and cruel one but the love they had for each other was worth fighting for. I absolutely loved this book world and every single person in it!

“Worth killing for. Worth dying for. Worth all of it.”

Excerpt

PROLOGUE

ADA

          They told me he was dead, and I believed them.

          Two weeks later, the first book arrived.

          There was no postmark, no return address, but I knew it was from him. I’d been holding a copy the day he set fire to my soul in a stolen car on the edge of darkness. When for twelve hours the world had sparked with light and colour before they’d shrouded it in black again.

          After that, they appeared once a month, and it was always the same book, just different versions. Some had discreet covers. Others were straight-up classics. French, German, Italian, Arabic… Every translation you could think of.

          Most were torn with age, but a few had been newly reprinted that year. No two copies were identical, but the story never changed because it was our story now. They’d turned him into the villain, and me into a footnote: framed for a crime we didn’t commit, and then punished and kept apart for years because of it. 

          One was so rare it had been auctioned off for a huge amount of money—the highest anyone had paid for a first edition. The buyer was anonymous, of course. I read about him in a newspaper someone had left behind in a coffee shop. According to the by-line, the final bid had come in from Monaco. 

          Monaco.

          I remember thinking then how sad and strange it was that for all the blood money we had, we were both still bankrupt in all the ways it mattered.

          Then, five months ago, the books stopped arriving. 

          I figured he was dead now for sure, and my grief was so great it felt like every chamber of my heart was being pierced by a bullet. 

          I waited weeks for my Bratva bastard of a husband to show up and taunt me with the news, but he never came.

          That’s when I knew the truth:

          Our chains had finally broken. 

          The war was finally here.  

          Frankie was coming back for me, and the whole of London was going to burn because of it.

I’ve never done anything like this before, but something tells me he’s worth it. Every swipe of his tongue feels electric, every kiss sets me on fire, and his experience has me begging for more.

OH MY GOODNESS…this story took me on an emotional rollercoaster. The chemistry between Joanna and Jenner was OFF THE CHARTS. What starts off as a hot and steamy week in Vegas, something that was just supposed to last the week, turns into so much more. The naughty bad boy Jenner Dalton sees what he likes and gets a taste. Even his boss, Walter Spade, knowing what kind of guy Jenner is, asks him if he’s going to take a woman in the bathroom and have sex with her. Jenner doesn’t because he’s out with his boss, but if he wasn’t he clearly would have taken her in the bathroom.

That is why when he sees Joanna, he does exactly what he wants. Thankfully, he liked Joanna enough to take her to his room after meeting her. But after spending a HOT and HEAVY week together…can it be more? Jenner lives in California and Joanna is in Florida. Can’t get any further apart than that. I loved this story. The fire is there along with an awesome storyline. I didn’t want it to end…and when you read the epilogue, you are going to go OMG.

I have to say this is probably the steamiest romance I’ve read in a good long while. These Dalton brothers have me under their spell. Jo was a refreshing, mature, sassy, sexually confident heroine and I loved how she handled the undeniable attraction between Jenner and herself. Jenner was committed to never being tied down, a wanderer, devastating lover and skilled negotiator. I am in awe of his talent in ALL areas. But even with their age gap, Jo handled him like a pro. What a sexy, addictive and thoroughly entertaining story. I raced through the book because these two set the pages on fire. The opposite of a slow burn…this one was unavoidable burning chemistry. Whew!
