☆✮ My Review ✮☆
☆I received a review copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!☆
Love and Sacrifice was another great read from Chelsea Ballinger. And like book one, our main characters are faced with forbidden love.
What would you do if the person you fell in love with is the daughter of the man you were told to kill? Not to mention, you were honor bound to take out the designated person’s entire family as well?
Well, this proves to be the case for 20-year old Tommy Dumas:
A man with a gritty and jaded past and who takes up refuge under the sworn enemy of the Pierce family: Mickey Valentine (from the notorious Valentine Organization). Under Mickey’s wing, Tommy is trained to be an obedient and efficient killer and guises himself as a server at Ella Pierce’s graduation party, only he didn’t expect to gain a conscious and lose his heart in the process…
Ella, is the daughter of Roman Pierce and sister to Donovan. She is straight up, in your face, and a no- nonsense type of spitfire.
Having recently graduated from high school, the sky is the limit for Ella and all signs of danger look to be a thing of the past. Or so Ella (and her family) think.
But when the mysterious Tommy Dumas steps into the picture: she finds herself falling head over heels for him, the type of heart quenching love that she's only seen shared between her parents and Donovan x Claudia; while not knowing of the true danger and deadly secret that he’s withholding from her.
What will the future hold for Tommy and Ella? Is their love meant to be? And with secrets, betrayals, and revelations unveiling themselves, will it end in blood and ruin?
Read and you will find out!
#Over all, a great installment to the Pierce Family Trilogy!! I will (sadly and reluctantly) comment though that there were still some editing issues, BUT, story and content wise I enjoyed it a lot. I appreciated that the author does not give a fairy tale type of ending but keeps things reasonable and ethical. I mean, with that much dirt against you, it wouldn’t make sense to get off without a scratch. So hallelujah for that!
I definitely can’t wait for the third and final installment where we see Donovan and Claudia's ++ Tommy and Ella’s story line's now merging for the last hurrah!! What will it entail? Marriage? Babies? And will Tommy and his big brother Joey have more of a foreclosure and show actual bonding between the two of them? GAH, I can’t wait!!

Since I was a kid, I've always had a an imagination that consumed me in more ways than one. I've always created these stories and pictures in my head, but never thought I would actually get a chance to do something about it. All I can say is thank God for Amazon Self Publishing! I used to think I was weird because of it, but due to the people who support me, I realized God gave me a gift. So that's my story. I want to do what makes me happy and creating stories makes me happy. If I'm not writing, I am either in deep thought (Analyzing everything), chillin with my family and friends, listening to music,reading, watching movies, or daydreaming.Well actually I daydream while doing all of that stuff but in the end God Bless love, technology, and pop culture!
My advice to people is do what makes you happy and use the gifts God has blessed you with.
