WITHOUT YOU Release Blitz & Review

Title: Without You
Author: Marley Valentine
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: March 13, 2020 Cover Design: PopKitty Design Photographer: Wander Aguiar Models: Jacob Cooley & Luke Schaeffer
“Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.”
Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.
Until everything changed. 
Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be. 
Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed. 
Not on another person.
Not on another man.
Not until him.

My Review

Oh Y’all!! So, I was super excited for this book. I was thinking GAH I mean you can read the blurb and it pretty much sounds like this book is gonna be all kinds of forbidden goodness right? But my friends,  this book, this fantastic, beautifully epic book, was beyond any and all expectations I could have ever even imagined. The feelings and emotional journey Marley will send  you on with this book is soul-stirring and powerful. The way this book will grab your heart on the first page, AHH😭 I’m just never going to be the same. 

Broken-hearted, defeated and devastated. Deacon and Julian have a story that will both decimate and then heal your heart and soul. This is a poignantly powerful story about the love and healing they found in each other. It was about two broken souls recognizing their perfect counterparts in the most unlikely of places, at the most inopportune time. The kind of inevitable love that even though it went against logic and reason, what should and shouldn’t have drawn them to one another bond them in ways neither could have ever expected.

There was something cathartic when they were together, it was as if all was right in the world, it’s why they had to be meant for each other. They way they could tap into what the other so desperately needed at that moment and to be just that. 

I’m a firm believer that there is something to be said about the after effects of what happens to you after a book absolutely, utterly wrecks you. That cleansing feeling that only comes after you have bawled and sobbed until your huffing and snotty( not pretty but it happens) But when all is said and done and your author has broken you into a million pieces, you have cried all the tears until you have none left to cry, and she’s put you back together, you sigh and know that everything is as it’s supposed to be. She did it! She broke you, and she put you back together. Now, you do know you won’t be 100 percent the same, because long after these characters will stick with you, because that’s what those types of books do.THIS is one of those books, Deacon and Julian will be here in my heart long after I finished this book. Their story is the ultimate story of where love triumphs all, love wins. Love is EVERYTHING!

I’m in love with my best friend.


I’m in love with my enemy.


But they’re the same.

They. Are. The. Same.

Lines in my world are blurry between fantasy and reality.

Truth and lies. Love and hate.

Copeland Justice is my enemy. My once best friend. The sadist in my heart plucking and pulling at every thread of who I am until I’m unraveled at his feet.

His mouth says he hates me. His eyes burn with animosity for me. His heart beats for someone else.

But Copeland Justice is the best liar of us all.

Wicked Lies Boys Tell is the M/M, friends to lovers, frenemies to lovers BOOK to read. GAH! Y’all this book was EVERYTHING. Yes, it was super hot because… Well,  Cope and Penn! But this book blurs the lines, You or at least I didn’t care about the fact that it’s two dudes. I was so drawn into their story. I was mesmerized.  It left me speechless, reeling and warm in my little southern heart. Seriously, I had the most fabulous book hangover for days. This delicious tale of forbidden love by K. Webster is a must read for fans of M/M or really just fans of  book amazingness in general. 

Penn McAlister and Copeland Justice have known each other for most all of their lives, growing up and  living next door to one another. They were the bestest of friends and as close as brothers. Both used to the pressures of living with the tyrants they had for fathers. Throughout childhood and as they become teens they became dependant on each other for various things in their lives that only each other could provide They were each others stability, comfort and protection. That’s how close they were.  Along the way some of those lines started to blur and feelings started to change for Penn. A mistake was made one night when they were sixteen that leads to the destruction of their friendship, and Penn is now forced to watch his best friend a boy that owns his heart move on without him and spew hatred at him for the next two years.

“There was no gay or straight. No right or wrong. Just us. Penn and Cope. Always tethered to each other by some invisible force.”

This story is a series of flashbacks mixed in with current time. An event brings Penn and Cope back together after two years apart. This starts a complicated journey of Cope and Penn navigating the reunification of their best friendship while struggling with conflicting romantic feelings too. 

How will Penn handle his unrequited feelings for Cope? And how will Cope deal with the weird and unexplainable feelings he starts having towards Penn? What will happen if their fathers find out all the secrets that Penn and Cope have been hiding?  Find out all that and so much more in this five star steamy, angsty, hot, hot, friends-to-lovers romance!!    

This is absolutely a slow-burn romance, but HOLY HOT BISCUITS AND GRAVY!! When then steam kicks in though, dang!! It’s hotter than a sauna. Steamy, hot, sweaty, and oh so sexy.

Learning is most definitely FUNDAMENTAL,  and oh did Cope teach and Penn do some learning.
