Past and present intertwine with light and dark to tell a story …Because of Him

Something inside me fiercely craves normal.

Sheltered all my life and taught to be afraid, I want to be bold, fearless.

Up until now I’ve kept myself and my heart safe.

Tade Astor, a guy so hot he steals my breath away, jeopardizes it all.

He isn’t the kind of guy to give up on what he wants—me.

He’s determined to prove my safe world is missing something—him.

Even though he may not be the cocky guy I assumed him to be…

He’s definitely not the guy I should give my heart to.

But each time I see him, he becomes harder to resist.

I want to be brave and give him a chance… though it might come back to haunt me.

At the heart of Because of Him is a love story. But due to certain sensitive topics, it might not be suitable for all readers.






She glanced down, allowing her hair to create a wall between us. “You don’t even know me,” she said.

“I know you keep one side of your hair tucked behind your ear to reveal a tiny hoop earring pierced halfway down the curve of your ear. The piercing is most likely an act of defiance against your traditionally minded parents. You reveal it to show you’re your own person. But it’s the other side of your hair that hangs loose to hide your face that’s so telling. There is a part of you that’s a rebel but doesn’t want to be seen at the same time.”

While she sat dumbstruck, I reached out with my hand and allowed myself the touch of her cheek before brushing the hair to secure it behind the other naked ear.

“You shouldn’t hide a face as pretty as yours.”

~ 5 Because of Him Stars ~

Ok I am going to warn you right off the bat, this review is going to be very vague and probably on the shorter side. I can’t really talk about the storyline at all, because I am afraid I will spoil something and that wouldn’t be good.

Because Of Him was nothing like what I expected going into when I chose to read this book. Now that isn’t a bad thing, just a surprising thing. This story had me on the edge of my seat right from the start. I thought Terri did an amazing job joining suspense, love and real life topics together perfectly. We got the perfect mix of light and dark in this story.

The one and only thing I will say about the storyline, is that you need to be warned, this book covers some very tough subjects and some parts might be hard for readers to read. Although I did love the fact that Terri didn’t get overly graphic in this book and took it just far enough for the reader to know what is happening.

Because Of Him is Terri E. Laine’s latest standalone novel. It is told in Dual POV and is a complete story with NO cliffhanger. You don’t have to read any other book to fully enjoy this book. I thought the way this story played out was perfect and the pace and flow worked well for these characters. This is a college based story so I would say it is a New Adult story. You will become instantly invested in these characters right from the start. Once I picked up this book, I was unable to put it down. I truly couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I had so many things running through my head while reading this book.

Another thing I loved about this book was that it felt so different from anything else I have read by Terri. This was a new side to her writing and I thought it was fantastic.

All I can really say is if you are a fan of the New Adult Genre, then I think you should give this book a try. It’s a story about letting go and coming into oneself. If you are a fan of Terri’s books you don’t want to miss this latest GEM from her!!!!
