**BT * GIVEAWAY** Love Resisted ~ Melanie Codina

Love Resisted

Melanie Codina 


For Allie Baxter, love was never something she had to worry about. She was loved by her friends, her family, her husband … until the day it was ripped away. Losing love was the deepest pain Allie had ever endured, and it was an agony she vowed to avoid feeling ever again. Crippled with guilt over her loss, for five years Allie served her self-appointed exile from the daily comforts offered by friends and family, only to return and attempt to fit herself back into their open arms—even if she knew she didn’t deserve it. Mike Lawson was not something Allie expected; the love of a man was not something Allie was prepared to want. The spark of desire that had long ago died inside her suddenly returned, bringing the memories of her pain with it. She swore she would never allow herself to love again … but how long could love be resisted?

Amy's Thoughts~ 

Allie lost the love of her life in a horrific car accident. For 5 long years, she's harbored the guilt of killing the man she loved.  Eight years ago, Mike lost his love to breast cancer. Leaving him alone to raise their only son. How does one who has faced grief head on, convince the one who hasn't that life didn't stop that fateful day? 

When I read Love Realized, I knew Melanie Codina was an amazing author. I knew... Just knew that Love Resisted was going to be outstanding, and I was right! I read this today in the span of about 5 hours. Again, it astounded me how Melanie could combine two strong emotions. On one hand so deep, and heartfelt, that I was tearing up right along with her characters, to the next moment I was laughing so hard my side was hurting. And holy *swoon* Mike is a swooner!! I will NEVER listen to Treasure by Bruno Mars the same again!! 

Melanie's writing style is that of a seasoned author! If you read her work with out knowing anything about her, by the time you finished these two books, you would feel like she was your best friend. She takes her words and conveys them into emotions and feelings that threaten to rip you open and bleed you dry. Then she puts your back together again. 

About the Author~

Melanie is an amazing mother of four, an awesome and tolerant wife to one, and nurse to many. If you don’t believe her, just ask anyone in her family, they know what to say. She is also a devoted chauffer, the keeper of missing socks, a genius according to a six year old, the coolest soccer uniform coordinator according to a twelve year old, and the best damn ‘mac-n-cheese-with-cut-up-hot-dog maker in the whole world. Well that last title isn’t really official, but it’s still pretty cool to be called it.

When not being ordered around by any of the kids, you can find her with her nose in a book or on the sideline of a soccer game cheering on one team or another. But that’s mostly because she has a thing for the coach. When she is not doing all of the above, you can find her obsessed with a group of fictional characters all vying for a spot on the page of whatever she’s working on. It’s a fun and crazy life to lead, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
