Roar by Aria Cage: Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

Roar Banner

Title: Roar
Author: Aria Cage
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: March 17, 2014


I’m shadowed by sins; mine and the ones passed on to me. The only light comes in the way of him. He wants to fix me, but he can’t fix something so lost and broken. I'm completely undeserving and secretly unwilling. But how do I turn away the one person my body and soul soars for, the one thing that makes me forget the fear, the loss and the guilt? How do I stop the primal need which we are addicted to? 

She is a stranger amongst the world, a captive behind her smiles and lies which shelters the truth. But I know her, we are caged together with the demons and guilt, yet my love is stronger against all our loss and I want to help her heal, to set her free. Under her cloak still lies my scared kitten, feral to her soul because of what he took from both of us. If it’s the last thing I do, I will help her roar like the tiger I know her to be, even if it means setting her free from me. Caged by their demons and primal need, will their love be strong enough to set them free?

Easily a 5+++ Star read for me!

Gripping and powerful.

Roar is BEAUTIFULLY written.  It is a story unlike any other.  The relationships are deep and heartbreaking.  Aria Cage took something terrible and turned it into something beautiful.  This is one story you do NOT want to miss!

Was I supposed to cry???  I sure hope so.  Because I cried buckets!  These aren’t just broken characters that carry around past hurt.  They are deeply tortured and severely damaged.  I’m not sure how you were able to write this, Aria Cage, because I was a total and utter mess just reading it.  I am crying just thinking about it to write this darn review. 

Roar is brutally beautiful, and my emotions definitely took a beating.  My heart broke over and over for Nate and Charlie.  But you know what?  I’d sacrifice them all over again to experience such a passionate and heartfelt story.

Nate and Charlie have been connected since childhood.  The nature of their relationship is the heart of the story – it’s deep yet taboo, but through no fault of their own.  The most important thing in the world to Nate and Charlie is each other.  The pair is inseparable until a tragedy literally tears them apart as teenagers.  Unspeakable and unknown sacrifices are made leaving each sentenced to live in their own private hell with their own hurt and regrets until their paths once again cross many years later. 

Time may have passed, but Nate’s love for Charlie runs infinitely deep and has endured anything that you can throw at love, least of all time.  Charlie believes she’s responsible for them being torn apart all those years ago.  She doesn’t deny the pull and tie she has to Nate, but her guilt doesn’t allow her to accept that she deserves to be saved, and she fights it at every turn.  Nate’s not about to lose the one thing that matters most to him again even if it means letting her go to save her. 

roar teaser 2_edited-1Nate and Charlie are characters that you can’t help but feel connected to.  The emotions are raw and the dual POV allows us to see the extent to which Nate and Charlie suffered internally.  I literally wanted to jump in the pages and fight for them.  But, I also wanted to shake Charlie awake and make her realize she deserves some happiness.  I think Nate broke my heart more than anyone.  He’s trying desperately to save someone that doesn’t want to be saved.   

Aria Cage’s writing is gorgeous, vivid, and real.  Her writing style is lyrical which adds to the overall feel and makes the story flow.  For such a brutal story and delicate subject matter, Aria Cage manages to make it a page turner with her fabulous style and the sensitivity and compassion with which it’s written.  The flashback between the past and present drives this story.  It’s purposeful and impactful. The way in which Nate and Charlie’s demons are revealed is brilliantly done by Aria Cage.  It is undeniably artistic.

 What’s on the inside is stunning, and the cover is no exception.  I absolutely love this cover!  I think it sets the tone for what’s inside.  What lives inside the pages is just as gorgeous as the cover.  If you want to read something with emotion and heart that will leave you thinking about it for days after, you found it with Roar.

I cannot wait for whatever Aria Cage brings us next!!! 

5 STARS!!!!

So I guess you could call me a genre whore. #3 My phone is my life line. I can't leave the house without it.
