Heart of Marley by TK Leigh- Sale Blitz, Trailer & Review




 RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 18 AND OVER DUE TO GRAPHIC VIOLENCE, STRONG LANGUAGE, AND SEXUAL SITUATIONS. To the moon and back… From the stars to the ocean… That was Marley and Cameron Bowen’s secret code. Twins born just five minutes apart, they have the perfect life… Until tragedy strikes just weeks after their eighth birthday and their father is killed by a drunk driver. Having trouble coping with the loss of her soul mate, their mother tries to find comfort in drugs and alcohol… And an abusive man with a penchant for underage girls. No longer able to stand listening to his sister’s screams and cries every night for nearly three years, Cam takes matters into his own hands and they’re finally able to escape the nightmare. They’re finally able to start over… But the nightmare still haunts Marley. The years go on and she is forced to put on a smile, making everyone think that she is the perfect, well-adjusted teenager that she is supposed to be… Until she is faced with a painful reminder of her past during her senior year of high school and she’s no longer able to keep on the mask that she has been compelled to wear.

Heart Of Marley is a prequel novel to T.K. Leigh’s Heart of Light.

5 Emotional Stars
Wow!!!!! Heart of Marley is one of those books that you will NEVER forget! I was & still am totally wrecked from this book! I felt like she was MY sister and felt everyone's pain! I think it's the perfect way for sexual abuse to be voiced!

I read Heart of Light so I knew a bare minimum about Marley going in but I never imagined I would feel what I feel for her & Cam. 

After Marley & Cam's dad died when they were around 8 years old, their mom took comfort in drugs, alcohol & men. She took a liking to this one particular creep, Buck. He did unthinkable & horrific things to poor little Mar for 3 years! Three long years until Cam had enough & took justice into his own hands leaving Buck in a pool of bloody mess! Fast forward 6/7 years later, they are seniors in high school now. 
Mar has tried her best to be "normal" but the town is impossible. 
I was so glad that TK Leigh touched on the sexual exploitation of pageants that some go to the extreme with. Marley really needed therapy! I can't believe the aunt & uncle were so selfish! I could've slapped them so many times with their self-righteous & indignant attitude! When Mar's past becomes her present, the bottom falls out for everyone! Heart broken is an understatement!

Marley is an AMAZING character! She's so strong! She didn't think so but she truly was to go through what she did! Cam is equally amazing & the perfect brother! The roof top scene & epilogue gutted me! I just can't even imagine! 

I can't wait to read more of Cam!! This story & subject is still so fresh & I know it'll be with me forever & always! I'll forever remember this masterpiece!
