**BT & Giveaway** Escaping Heartbreak ~ Regina Bartley

It’s time for Sawyer to start living her life. Since she was fifteen she has taken care of everyone but herself, including her older brother Dane. She has been lying to herself to keep from feeling the pain of her parent’s death. Now she is twenty and she’s ready to start a life of her own. Moving into her parent’s lake house would be the perfect escape. Wouldn’t it? That’s what she thought. Only, it led her right into the emotional place she’s been hiding from all this time. All of those years of running from her feelings, she now has to face them. It’s too much. She can’t deal with it alone. Someone has to help. She’ll do anything to escape the heartbreak, but you can only run so far. 

Travis can’t believe his eyes; his half-opened, blood shot eyes. Sawyer Evans was in the flesh and standing over him. He hadn’t seen this girl since he was ten years old. Travis only saw the Evan’s during the summer when they moved into the lake house. He and Dane were best friends. When Dane invited him and the old gang to a welcome back party at the Lake House, he couldn’t wait to go. It turns out getting wasted was only half the fun. Seeing Sawyer was the other half. She was the sexiest girl he’d ever seen and he was going to make sure that she knew it. Only she shot him down time and time again. He’s determined to break down those walls and get inside her head, but he’ll have to be sober to do it, and no matter how hard he tries, she’ll always run. He can’t keep chasing her. He has to figure out a way to make her stay.

It’s time to stop running, stop hiding, and start learning where the true escape lies. Everyone will face heartbreak, but not everyone will find love. 

Stand Alone Novel for ages 18+ due to graphic language, and sexual content.



 This was a debut read for me by Regina Bartley, one I thoroughly enjoyed. I will definitely read her again. I can only hope it's in the sense of a book 2 with these particular characters.

Escaping Heartbreak is a story about learning to live your life, and attempting to avoid the grief that sometimes find you. Sawyer know heartbreak, all her life it's been there in one form or another. Via her first crush, her first love, or... her parents. Now she has decided that it's time to get out, spread her wings, and start living her life. First step, moving into the lake house.

Travis has known heart break. First with his first love, then with his dad, now the mess that is his mother. Father more than a brother to his younger sibling. Travis knows that everything he does affects his brothers life. So he must tread carefully. But he's breaking out. He's ready to live. Starting with a party at an old friends house.

Regina Bartley did a fabulous job with these two broken characters. I enjoyed their beautiful story and I can only hope we can see a little bit more from Dane *swoon* (Sawyer's older brother).  Looking forward to what she delivers next.


Regina lives in Kentucky and is currently releasing her third book. Her books include Chased and Challenged, both of The Graysen Pack Series, as well as her newest book Moonshine. Her true love is writing paranormal, but writing Moonshine made her discover a hidden love for Adult Contemporary Romance. She says that you can expect her to write a little in both worlds. 

She is married with two kids and when she is not writing she is reading and reading and reading. She loves her cat Jacob, who was named after her favorite werewolf. Go figure... If you put her in front of the T.V. she would most likely watch sports, unless The Vampire Diaries is on. Her favorite things are her family, books, football, chocolate, Bruno Mars, and well Bruno Mars, enough said. She loves to keep up with her fans and you can find her several places.
