The Hard Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett Release Day Blitz & Sarah's 2¢!




The Hard Truth About Sunshine AMAZONNew York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett has written her most gripping and poignant tale yet. Provocatively heart-breaking, audaciously irreverent and romantically fulfilling, The Hard Truth About Sunshine exposes just how very thin the line is between a full life and an empty existence.

An angry, bitter amputee.

An optimist losing her eyesight.

A dying kid.

A suicidal thief.

Four people with nothing in common but their destination.

Despite having narrowly escaped death’s clutches, Christopher Barlow is grateful for nothing. His capacity to love has been crushed. He hates everyone and everything, completely unable to see past the gray stain of misery that coats his perception of the world. It’s only after he involuntarily joins a band of depressed misfits who are struggling to overcome their own problems, does Christopher start to re-evaluate his lot in life.

What could they possibly learn from one another? How could they possibly help each other to heal? And the question that Christopher asks himself over and over again… can he learn to love again?

He’s about to find out as he embarks upon a cross country trip with a beautiful woman who is going blind, a boy with terminal cancer, and an abuse victim who can’t decide whether she wants to live or die.

They will encounter adventure, thrills, loss and love.

And within their travels they will learn the greatest lesson of all.

The hard truth about sunshine…

Warning: This book deals with some tough issues including suicide and sexual abuse.

The Hard Truth About Sunshine is a complete standalone by the always awesome Sawyer Bennett.  It's a completely brand new story with no interconnecting characters to her previous books.  

Take what you know about typical Sawyer Bennett books and throw it out the window.  The Hard Truth About Sunshine is more than contemporary romance.  This is a coming of age story of epic proportions.  Christopher Barlow is an injured Marine veteran that is coming to terms with his new life.  He's got major trust issues as well as body dysmorphia since his accident overseas.  We read through his struggles with life, love, trust and hope and it's a truly amazing story that can't be missed.  

Christopher is on a bucket list trip with some other people from a therapy group.  He feels thrown into the situation but after a while, he comes to terms with it and learns that these people are his closest friends.  The Hard Truth About Sunshine takes us through tremendous loss but more than that, leaves us with hope.  Hope for the future, that tomorrow will be better, that you aren't your past.  I'll admit, I had a hard time getting into the story because it is just so different from what Sawyer's written before, but let me be clear, THIS BOOK NEEDS TO BE READ.  You'll cry, you'll laugh and you'll find yourself turning each page because after a while, you're completely immersed in the story of these four unlikely friends and you won't want it to end.

AuthorPhoto  Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions.

 A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

 Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
