Title: Swear on This Life

Author: Renee Carlino

Published: August 2016

Rating: ★★★★★

Summary: Emiline, an adjunct professor and aspiring writer, is surprised when she reads the new bestselling novel written by J. Colby and finds it to be a portrayal of her childhood. Emiline reads this account of her painful upbringing and is hurt that her childhood friend, whom she has not heard from in over a decade, is finding success by telling her story.

Why I Am Recommending: I loved this book as intensely as Jax and Em loved each other. I devoured this book in just a few days and was sad to see it end. The book within the book is just as good as the story unfolding. This technique of having a book within the book also immersed me more fully in Emiline’s perspective as I felt like I was going through this experience with her. The romance was swoon-worthy and it shows that Carlino is known for her romance novels. If you are sensitive to the graphic tendencies of romance novels, you may not enjoy this book as it tip-toes in that arena, although it is not a book I would fully classify as a romance novel.
