*COVER REVEAL* "Objective (Bloodlines #2)" by K. Larsen

My story started out cliche, good girl falls for bad boy, but one wrong move changed all that. Turns out the good girl doesn’t save the bad boy. My story goes from cliche to risque to mind blowing. My story is different from all the others because the events of my story led me to one objective.

Remembering him comes in dreams and flashbacks that I can't control. I tell myself it’s time to let go...but moving on from him is impossible when I still see our lives in my head.

When you kill your soul mate you don’t ever really recover.
A year of trying to forget or rather move past it has taught me that you can't. Its an impossibility to move on from that kind of horrific form of betrayal. If you you’re too selfish or scared for suicide, like me, you learn to wake up every morning and follow routine. One foot in front of the other, day after day.

Hollow. Lifeless. Haunted. Loving him was like the sun on a summer day. Living without him is like slowly burning to death. Torture.

A Bloodlines Novel.
*Note Tug of War is the 1st in the Bloodlines books, each book can be read as a stand alone book.*

Objective. Myyyy godddd. This book is everything I love wrapped up in one amazing little package. If you've been following me for a while, you know my biggest weakness is crime and mystery with a twist, combined with a little bit of romance. Objective NAILED that. It's got suspense, mystery, and some super crazy CRAZY twists. It was one of the hardest books to put down that I've read in a LONG time.
"If I drink enough, I pass out. If I pass out, there's a fifty-fifty change I'm unable to dream. If I'm unable to dream, I don't have to wake up daily with the weight of the guilt."
So there's not a lot about the actual book that I can write without giving major plot points away, but I will say this. It's about a girl, Magnolia, running from one hell of a messed up situation. It's watching a girl go from a pretty normal life, to a life on the run, watching her back during every move.
It's about a guy, who was born into a situation that he couldn't easily get out of.
It's about a new group of friends, who have their own secrets, that we meet along the way.
"This game is going to end badly for everyone, and I'm okay with that."
I immediately felt connected to the characters in this story. Magnolia draws you in and makes you curious about her from the second she is introduced. I wanted more of her as soon as I heard the first bit of her story, and I got it. Along the course of the book, you start questioning everyone, and their intentions. How they all got to where they are, what their actual motives are.

This isn't a happy little love story. This is a story about survival. A book about doing what you have to do to move on and live, while creating an entirely new life. But everyone knows, that eventually your past will catch up with you, and things will all come crashing down around you. Not to mention, this IS a Bloodlines Series Novel, and if you've read "Tug Of War" you know that the Happily Ever After is always a little bit bittersweet. Everything may end up in a good place, but there's still that teeny bit of sadness to it. Why? Because it's real. And not everything can end up like a fairytale.

Objective can absolutely be read as a standalone. Although it does have ties to Tug Of War, it is about new characters that are introduced. The next book in the series, Resistance, will combine the characters of Tug Of War and Objective. So if you've read Tug Of War, read Objective, and read it NOW. If you haven't read Tug Of War, you should read it anyway, but it isn't essential to read Tug Of War before Objective.

Favorite Quote:
"What do you see?" I grind out, holding both her palms on the counter so she can't move.
"A mess," she whispers.
"I see beauty. Try again. What do you see?"

There are exactly five people in this town that know me, or of me. My neighbor Bentley, the bouncer where I work, Brock, the pimply faced kid who works the late shift at the liquor store, the chick at the Knight’s Super Foods who always seems to be working when I go in and Penny, the manager at the club who hired me. It’s just enough people to be safe and few enough to avoid drawing any attention to myself. I’m not a hermit. I just don’t like people all that much anymore. I suppose if shown a picture in a line-up some of the gym junkies where I box with Brock would be able to say ‘yeah, I’ve seen her’ but I doubt they’d remember my name. I like my quiet life. No distractions. It allows me to keep my eyes open and to stay alert and watch for the real danger. It’s not easy being paranoid and afraid all the time. Somewhere over the last year I went from feeling non-stop sorrow and bone-crushing guilt to rage. Pure hate. It fills me. It drives me now. I train because of it. I stay alert because of it. And I will achieve my objective because of it. Ezra will come for me. I realize he is the only thing keeping my hurt around. It was his fault. It still is and yet, I’m the one paying. I gave up my life, my love, my soul. Ezra has to pay and I am determined to make it happen, on my terms. I just have to stay alive long enough to kill him first. I have to do this. He ruined my life. I have nothing. I am nothing. I want it done as soon as possible. I’ve bided my time for so long now. Then I will forget. I will begin my life and I will forget that I ever knew him.
