Blog Tour: Between Lust & Tears by Dani Rene

Between Lust & Tears
by Dani René
Backstage Series #2
Publication Date: October 29, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Irresistible. Bad Boy. Manwhore.
That’s what they call him.
But I know better.
You can’t change someone 
who doesn’t want to be changed,
but it didn’t stop me trying.
Can I really be the person
to break down those walls?
Innocent. Sweet. Beautiful.
That’s what she is. 
I know her better than she knows herself.
You can’t make someone stay,
but you can show them your truth
and let them choose.
Can I ever be enough for her?
Can I be the man worthy of her heart?
*This story is for mature audiences only.
Contains explicit scenes intended for adults 18 +



Between Lust & Tears is book 2 in the Backstage series and in it we get the story of Emma and Liam. Emma is the sister of Tayla and Liam is Callum's brother, so you know things are going to be interesting even before you begin the book. 

Liam and Emma hooked up in London six months ago, and now they are coming together again for the marriage between their siblings.  Both Liam and Emma are warned off each other by their family, but the old saying is true, The heart wants what it wants and there is no stopping it. Neither of them were able to let go of their feelings for the other, and they both know they won't be able to remain hands off when back in each other's orbit. 

Liam is an unabashed manwhore, he doesn't deny anything, but there's something about Emma. Something different and though he doesn't quite know what it is, he knows it exists.  Liam is torn between following his feelings and his belief that he's not good enough for Emma.  He wants to be the man she needs, but doesn't know how to become that man or if he's able. 

Emma knows Liam's history, she knows the kind of man he has been, but she also thinks he has the capacity to change, if he desires to do so.  She's seen how Callum changed for her sister and how great that's turned out for them and she wants to give Liam a chance to be her perfect match. But it's not going to be an easy task. 

The tension between these two could be cut with a knife, and their chemistry sparks. You can feel the emotions between them, but also see deeper into them and understand why they don't just jump into a relationship.  I loved the set up for this, Liam's issues with his father and his past and his own feelings of worth are deep seated and hard set, and he has to work through those, with the help of Emma.  Emma has to contend with her jealousy and own mixed feelings while trying to get Liam to open up to her, to let her in.  

Between Lust & Tears is one emotional roller coaster of a love story, but it snatched my attention from page one and held me rapt.  There's  anger and tears and pain, there's steamy and sweet moments and it all makes for an explosive story for these two.  I loved that I didn't know what to expect next, but with each flip of the page, I felt pulled in further, falling in love with the characters, flaws and all, and hoping for the ending I wanted.  

About Dani René

Hey darlings,
I am an indie author and freelance graphic designer. I started focusing on writing in January 2015 and after a few fan fiction stories, I decided to publish Ace of Harts it was my first full length novella. On a daily basis I have a few hundred characters, storylines, and ideas floating around in my mind. If I am not on Pinterest or Instagram looking for my next muse, you can find me on Twitter or Facebook. So head on over, I love meeting new readers and authors.
When I am in the cave, I am happiest. If you can’t find me sitting behind my trusty MacBook writing about hot alpha males, I am probably drinking coffee at a coffee shop, or wine tasting one of the few hundred wine farms in my home city of Cape Town, in South Africa.
I have an addiction to reading (who doesn’t?), TV series, music, tattoos, chocolate, and ice cream. I am constantly looking for a new book to get lost in and new book boyfriend to fall in love with. My favorite authors include – M Never, K Webster, KL Kreig, Meghan March, and that’s just to name a few!
Much love xo
