Stacy’s Review

I went in to this book pretty much blind.
I didn’t look at the teasers, or excerpts.
The only thing I knew before diving in was the blurb.
I was drawn to the cover, and to the blurb.

The twists in this book kept me turning the pages. I was blown away when the big reveal was, well, revealed lol. It was definitely unexpected to see the least.

I did feel as though it got a little confusing at times especially with the past and present flashbacks, but the confusion didn’t take away from the overall story.

Because of Him is my first read from Author Terri E. Laine, and I don’t believe it will be my last.
I look forward to seeing what she has in store next for her readers.


She glanced down, allowing her hair to create a wall between us. “You don’t even know me,” she said.

“I know you keep one side of your hair tucked behind your ear to reveal a tiny hoop earring pierced halfway down the curve of your ear. The piercing is most likely an act of defiance against your traditionally minded parents. You reveal it to show you’re your own person. But it’s the other side of your hair that hangs loose to hide your face that’s so telling. There is a part of you that’s a rebel but doesn’t want to be seen at the same time.”

While she sat dumbstruck, I reached out with my hand and allowed myself the touch of her cheek before brushing the hair to secure it behind the other naked ear.

“You shouldn’t hide a face as pretty as yours.”
