BLOG TOUR and REVIEW: Dark Love by Olivia Howe

2 sisters. 2 brothers. Love. Fantasy. Destiny. Danger. Secrets.

Nina Mckay is trying to cope with the loss of her father and depression. She feels as if she's at war with herself and the enemy side of her has complete control.

Nina, her mother Ali, and her sister Caroline, live in a small town called Scarlett Hills. Nina soon meets Andrew Madsen. Caroline meets his brother William Madsen. 2 sisters fall in love with 2 brothers that have secrets that will change their perspectives of the world and of themselves.

Nina soon finds herself standing in the rain, watching her life fall apart. Her outlook on the world will change drastically and soon she will be opened up to a whole different fantasy world that has always seemed impossible, that will change herself forever.

I was gifted a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Wow this is an awesome debut from Olivia Howe, Dark Love is about Nina McKay and her family mainly her sister Caroline. The last year of Nina's life has being especially hard for her due to a tragic accident ripping apart her family, she develops depression and just life in general. School starts after the summer and she meets Andrew who seems to be smitten with her, he is tall, pale, but has the darkest eyes she has ever seen and she loves looking at them. 

We also meet Andrew's brother William who seems to be smitten with Nina's sister Caroline so as in the blurb 2 sister's fall in love with 2 brothers. Now these brothers have secrets and it's only a matter of time when Nina and Caroline find out what it is.

I loved the writing style Olivia is a very talented writer you fall in love with the story, the characters, the feelings she provokes in you is just beautiful, you feel everything they do. The sadness, love, happiness, friendships everything you feel it all so thank you Olivia for writing such a beautiful book you have a fan here who will read anything you write. I can't wait for more.

5 Stars

My name is Olivia Howe. I'm 19 years old. I was born in Florida and raised in Maine. I love to read and write. Music is a big part of my life. A year ago, I got diagnosed with MDD (major depressive disorder) and GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). I'm still currently fighting depression. Writing my novel titled, Dark Love, truly saved my life. It's completely FICTION, but most of the diary entries I got from my own journal. It focuses on a young girl struggling with depression (obviously because I'm in the current situation). I wanted to be able to have people, that are struggling with the same issues, be able to relate to this situation that my main character is in and hopefully help them. I also included a lot of fantasy in the                                      story because I personally love everything about fantasy.
