Title: Violet Ugly 
Author: J. Lynn Bailey
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Sixteen years ago, Merit Young left Granite Harbor, Maine, for California in search of a future that didn’t involve Ryan Taylor. 

He’d left her in pieces on her bedroom floor, delivering a blow she couldn’t have expected. But, now, at the request of her brother, Eli, she must return and confront the demons of her past—Ryan included. After the loss they both suffered, she isn’t prepared to face him—especially considering he’s the only one who’s always been able to see right through her. 

Ryan has lived his entire adult life in survival mode. Growing up with an abusive father has taught him to keep women at arm’s length, and that’s never been a problem. Until Merit—the only woman he’s ever loved—strides through his front door. He’s not sure how long she’s staying, but he knows it’ll be long enough to destroy what’s left of his heart.

To overcome their dark past, they’ll have to shed light on a reality that will most likely tear them apart. Merit has been hiding a heartbreaking decision from Ryan, and he’s been keeping lies of his own. 

Can two tortured souls heal after a lifetime of pain? Or will the hideous secrets of the past bury them both?

J. Lynn Bailey has loved to write since she learned to read, around the second grade. When she isn't running after her children, watching COPS, or on the hunt for her next Laffy Taffy joke, you can probably find her holed up in her writing room feverishly working on her next book. She lives in Northern California with her family.

Sixteen years ago, Merit Young walked away from everything she knew, for a place where she could make a new life, free from all the bad memories that home carried. In that time she has made her way through college, created a life for herself, and found a job she enjoys doing. But when her brother calls, and asks for her to return home to care for the man who broke her heart, and sent her running, she is a little hesitant to make the trip. Because going home means facing her past, and finding the courage to admit that she lost her heart when she left there, and the only way to get it back is to face the man who holds it.

The moment your eyes land on the first page of Violet Ugly you will be absorbed by Ms. Bailey's well crafted words, and taken on a heart-wrenching journey that will leave a permanent mark on your soul. From the get-go it was evident these two not only had chemistry in spades, but they also had a lot of wounds that needed healing. This is a slow burning story, and as it progresses you will see them battle their demons, and rediscover all that was lost when she walked away, but not without a few bumps and bruises. It is a beautifully told story, but it comes with a heavy subject line, one that may have your heart in your throat and your tears welling, but know their is also some happiness to be discovered there too. This one hit deep for me, it came bearing an highly emotional story line that was pure torture on my heart... but so darn worth every ounce of pain! Highly recommend!

I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
