Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway: Beautiful Boy by Leddy Harper

Title: Beautiful Boy
Author: Leddy Harper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: April 28, 2016
Review Source: eARC
One introverted girl. 
One extroverted guy. 
One assignment. 
One afternoon. 
Then everything changed… 

“You destroyed me.” 

Novah wanted nothing more than to walk away, never see him again. She was determined to pick up the pieces of her tarnished reputation and move on. Her torture became her muse, earning her well-deserved notoriety for capturing beauty with her lens. She had come full circle. She had it all…until he returned. 

Nolan found himself surrounded by the grim facets of life, no longer the prominent boy from an affluent family who’d caught Novah’s eye. The years had been unkind and left him in the dark, painful trenches of life. He needed her help. 

Fifteen years can equate to a lifetime of change, neither one the same person they once were. Despite the humiliation, the latent wounds, the missing years…they’re destined to heal one another in unexpected ways. 

“You saved me.”
This is the very first book that I have read by Leddy Harper and all I can say is, where the heck have I been? My goodness this book was AMAZING!!! The whole world around me came to a standstill. Not really but I didn’t care what was going on around me, this book consumed me. 

Novah and Nolan have quite the past back from high school. The quick joys that turned into devastation weighs heavily on them both still, fifteen years later. Novah is a successful photographer. She has worked very hard putting the past behind her. That is until Nolan sends her a vile email out of the blue, bringing back the past in a heartbeat. Nolan has endured much worse repercussions since the two last saw each other and has a task for Novah. Will this task end up pushing her farther away??

This book was fabulous! I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. I love Leddy’s writing style and I still am kicking myself in the rear for never reading her books before now. This story was beautifully written. My heart was torn to shreds and put back together piece by piece. The struggles and pain both Novah and Nolan had to endure was just heartbreaking. In all I loved the flow to the book and the characters were pretty amazing too. I never thought in a million years this story would progress into what it did. This story was absolutely breathtaking.

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped. 

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females. 

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
