15 Years To Life by Regina Bartley ~ RELEASE DAY BLITZ & REVIEW

Title: 15 Years to Life
Author: Regina Bartley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: September 5, 2015


Life outside prison walls is the farthest thing from predictable. There is no order, no schedule, and no one to tell you what to do every second of your life. Since the age of eleven, Brian McCrary had been in prison. Why you ask? For protecting his twin sister Blaine, and taking the life of his father.

Murder… Fifteen years to Life… Childhood to manhood…

With his parole granted, it’s time for Brian to come face to face with real life. What he doesn’t know is that this new life would prove to be the most difficult thing that he had ever faced. There would be struggles beyond his control. He has to learn how to be a man, and everything that goes along with it.

Sex… Love… Life… Responsibilities…

Will it be too much for him to handle, or is he strong enough to survive life on the outside?

Review By: Leeann

So this is one of this books that showcases the worst society has to offer but also the unbreakable bond of 11 year old twins that remains strong well into adulthood.

Brian is getting out of jail and returning to the one remaining member of his family,  his twin sister Blaine. These siblings have been through hell and now that they are reunited outside of the prison walls they need to work out how to form a relationship that is the same yet different than what it was all those years ago, before their lives changed forever. 

This is one of those books that will break your heart, but give you hope at them same time. The character of Brian is written really well. In this book, he gets out of jail and he struggles to re enter society. It doesn't come easy to him & this is a real life struggle. A high percentage of people coming out of jail feel the way he does. This gave the story an element of reality which it wouldn't have had if  he was released and it was all rainbows and sunshine from the start. It also made the story interesting. It made me want to keep reading to see how he dealt with adult situations.

There are some fantastic one liners in here from Brian and it is funny sometimes to look at life through his eyes. He has been incarcerated since he was 11 years old so everything is very different for him.

This is not a long book so it was easy and quick to read. The author left no loose ends at the end of the story but I found myself wanting more of Brians story. Not because I felt the story was unfinished but because I was enjoying it that much I just didn't want it to end! 

I normally don't like it when books jump back and forth between the past and the present but in this book it was necessary and well placed. It pulled the story together and answered a lot of the questions that come up in the present tense. 

This is wonderful well thought out story that is easy to get caught up in and it will have you hooked from the very beginning right until the end!  Loved it!!
