Title: Family Ties
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 21, 2018
With a
history like ours, the meaning of the word family tended to tangle into
something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and
neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our
twisted family tree.
I wasn’t
her brother.
weren’t my parents.
Not that it
She was off
Portia was
my friend.
Then my
foster sister.
And she’d
always be the love of my life.

Oh Wow!! Just Wow!!!
“Family Ties” By Stephie Walls was friggin amazing; like sooo good.
It’s an angsty coming of age story; with blurred boundaries lines and an almost forbidden attraction between two vulnerable young adults just trying to navigate lives obstacles while existing in a world of chaos where their path in life is still waiting to be forged and the coming chapter is still yet to be written.
Clinging to each other like a lifeline in a storm; Portia and Jude’s destinies have been intertwined since a young age.
Both entering each other’s life at a critical time these two share an unimaginable bond; foster siblings and confidantes since the day they met.
Shared Experiences and broken psyche’s Portia and Jude share a bond like no other.
But what happens when these feelings start to morph into something more.
When one is almost more broken than the other can deal with and when the one who makes your soul sing is the very last person society believes you should be with.
So, This was such a beautiful and at times heartbreaking tale.
From the moment I started reading this, I was transfixed with fascination and delight; never have I wanted someone to win at life as much as these two.
I can not find anything about this story I actually disliked; it ticked every one of my boxes and more.
A raw and emotional tale that leapt of these pages capturing my heart with its magical and emotive Prose.
this slow build style of narration really did work here; building an atmosphere of almost hopeful anticipation with its smouldering low burner approach; I loved and adored every expected moment. Every twist and turn took to arrive at its eventual end game.
At times this awakening wasn’t pretty or politically correct, but what this journey definitely was at its core was honest.
I can not recommend this story enough it was so thought-provoking and real and its one that will certainly stick in my mind for a long time to come.
This is an author I have never experienced before and she has undoubtfully scored a new fan in me; so impressed with this excellent piece of fiction; Bravo.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC copy of “Family Ties” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
