If you never speak of the past, can it be erased?
Lacey Edwards has a past.
A past which changed her life forever.
A past she is desperate to forget.
Lacey is quiet and reserved compared to her best friend Becca Fox. They became instant friends when Lacey moved to Maryland nine years ago. Becca helped pull Lacey out of her internal shell to experience life. By high school, Lacey was active in the club scene and would occasionally have to drag Becca with her. One night, Lacey realized she might be able to run from her past with the help of Becca and one steamy Caine Rogers.
Lacey didn't know, until it was too late, how feelings, honesty, heartbreak and life altering events can change a person. Lacey has Becca’s support but will that be enough?
Will Lacey sacrifice her own happiness to do what is expected?
Appropriate for readers 16 years and up. This novel contains heavy life issues that some might find offensive.
5 stars of amazing!! I love a book that has you emotionally exhausted once you are finished and this was definitely one of those times. Lacey oh boy I've never wanted to choke a character and smack the crap out of her till she got it as much as I wanted to do to Lacey. Lacey does what most women do or want to do to get over the past she gets under someone and wow is he not just someone Cain is sexy and perfect all around. Lacey didn't expect Cain to be so perfect and for them to fit together so well. This book is about Lacey and Cain and the undeniable attraction that they have between each other as soon as they meet. They are perfect for each other and then things change. This book seriously had me on the edge of my seat mind boggled and in love with every page. I am honored to have been able to review this book and look forward to much more by this amazing author.
If the decisions you make don’t define you, what price would you pay to change them?
“Close your eyes. This is the darkness I see, I feel, I live because of my choices."
I spent my life running. Running from my past. A past that changed my life, robbed me of my childhood, and bound me for a life of silence. Silence protected me from further hurt. When I couldn't control my life, I found reprieve in my silence. Dark, cold silence. I’m trapped, trying to find my way out, trying to make a stand, trying to finally live; but is it too late?
Lacey Edwards fought emotional turmoil most of her life. She made choices that unknowingly put her through more painstaking heartache. She found bits and pieces of happiness in all the wrong areas except for one. This one gave her hope for a fresh new life full of promises. Could she hold onto it, or would it slip through her fingertips?
***Warning*** Young Adult Edition. Appropriate for audiences 16 years and above. This novel contains heavy life and social issues that some might find difficult or offensive.
5 stars. How can you write a review that you want to tell everything about the book?? Okay if you have not read book one stop what your doing and read it before even thinking about book two. I am thankful after reading book one that I had book two to just jump right into. I enjoyed Destructive Choices better then Destructive Silence though I loved both books.This book continues where book one left off and it helped me to understand Destructive Silence better. Lacey had me wanting to shake her and wake her up in book one but after reading book two there is so much more to the situation then can be explained. Lacey fell hard for the wrong guy and in book two Devon is introduced and things start to get better but of course there's a twist and a major cliffhanger. That's what is so amazing about this series and L.U when you think everything is perfect BAM it all changes I love it!!! Well I loved this series and it deals with everyday happenings and anyone that loves a good plot with some twist and real life events this series is a definite must read!!!

Author L.U. Ann moved to Colorado from the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two children. Life in Colorado is so much different. In Maryland, you would find her in the garden tending to her vegetables and flowers, sea glass and shark tooth hunting once a week, and enjoying the kids swimming in the backyard. Her life took a drastic change when her family moved to their own “Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my!
She tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior.
At night, you’ll find her begging the kids to go to bed so that she can catch up on the latest book before her sister can. Yes, she is an avid reader who escapes her chaotic but wonderful home to the feisty depths of romance land in search of her newest book boyfriend. Shh, don’t tell her husband!
She is an artist by the grace of God. She worked as a set designer for six years, helping establish a local children's theatre where she was the scenery artist, set, and prop designer. Before that, you would find her covered in paint, so engrossed in painting a mural that time didn't exist. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure.
Special Note From L.U. Ann
I created this Young Adult Edition to reach a wider audience. Lacey is nineteen years old and finishing high school. The issues she faces are the very issues a teenager could be facing right now, some possibly even younger.
This series deals with heavy life issues. Issues that are real. It may not be for everyone, but it's a reality for so many. I hope you take some valuable information away from reading A Destructive Novel series. If anything, please read the resources found in the back of each book.
Thank you for the opportunity to tell Lacey’s story. My story.
