Let It Be Me by Toni Aleo ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


Do you see that woman there?

The one with long, wavy blond hair and blue eyes that used to sparkle?
That’s me, Violet Moore.
Do you see those men over there?
One is my husband, Rob.
A man who claimed he loved me, but proved his fist loved me more.
The other is Tucker McCloud, my savior and confidant.
I'm torn between what's right and my own fear.
But not anymore.
I’m taking my life back now.
I will fight back.
I will be happy.


Loved this book! This is the first book I've read of Toni's and let me tell you, she has a way with words that make you feel everything that is happening to the characters. I felt so many emotions while reading this story...anger, hurt, loss, grief, and then finally hope and love. 4 stars!

This is Violet's story.  Violet is married to Rob.  At first, things were great but once they got married Rob started controlling her, and then when she defied him he abused her emotionally and physically.  Rob controls every aspect of her life and has taken her away from her family and friends.  When they move across the country, it still doesn't change anything, Rob blames Violet for everything that goes wrong and takes out his anger on her.   The only thing Violet has to look forward to is going to work as the Office Manager of a Physician's Office.  When the Doctor of the practice announces his retirement, his son Tucker McCloud takes over.  Tucker is the one bright spot in Violet's life.  Tucker makes Violet feel again,...feel things she hasn't felt in a long time and he gives Violet hope for a future.  Rob's not willing to let go, but Tucker is willing to fight for what he wants, and he wants to help Violet.  Can Violet find the strength and courage to walk away and learn to stand on her own two feet so she can have a chance at true happiness?

"Just please, let it be me. Pick me. Love me."

Let it Be Me is a story about strength, courage, love, learning to overcome and finding yourself. Would definitely recommend you read this one!
