|Sometimes two souls connect on a level where words go unspoken and they just know.
Their hearts align and right or wrong—they just know.
When Moby and Piper collide—they just know. He didn’t have to shout his love from the mountaintops. The only heart that needed to hear his words listened silently to his soul’s communication. A bond that would transcend time and unexpected heartache.
The moment Piper laid eyes on Moby—she just knew. She didn’t have to await results. All the evidence she needed was there…taunting her, challenging her, testing their resolve. Daring her to persevere.
Parents, siblings, and countless friends—none of them knew. Oblivious to their turmoil, blind to their pain. Had they opened their eyes, it was there in front of them, for everyone to see…if only they looked.
A broken man.
*Based on a true story.
There is definitely something about a story based on true events. In this case, I could feel every emotion Stephie Walls undoubtedly felt as her real life Moby endured life altering events. Every tear Piper shed, every bit of anger, defeat, happiness, sadness, indifference, guilt felt in the story was as if I was sitting across from author Stephie Walls as she recounted those difficult years of the unknown with her then husband.
While the characters were those from her previous book Metamorphosis, the words in Compass were so incredibly heartfelt and sincere. Throughout the entire book from cover to cover, I tried to keep my heart from breaking into a million pieces.
I loved taking this journey with Moby and Piper as their love for each other was tested beyond measure. And sometimes you need more than love to overcome adversity. I enjoyed how Walls created such a solid foundation in Moby and Piper’s close friends– Piper’s ‘fish’, Moby’s brothers and the Wrights.
Every turn of the page was worthwhile and Compass was unputdownable– yep it’s a word lol. I love reading real life angst and love. it makes it that much more viable and I can invest in the words. This is definitely a story to put on your TBR. Better yet, one click and read a true love love story with all the feels and sincerity.
|I’ve lived all over the country but have made Greenville, South Carolina my home for the last 20 of my 37 years. I have a serious addiction to anything Coach and would live on Starbucks if I could get away with it. If you follow me on Facebook you’ll also find that I’m slightly enamored with Charlie Hunnam. I’m an avid reader (literary whore to be more precise) averaging around 300 novels a year. I have a penchant for great love stories, sensual poetry and am a romantic at heart.
I currently work full-time in the Greenville area and fill my “extra” time with writing contemporary romance novels with a hint of erotica. I couldn’t do it without the support of my family and friends who push me to keep going when I don’t have the confidence or patience.
