Destructive Release by L.U. Ann: Review

Destructive Release is the third and final book in A Destructive Novel Series and picks up where Destructive Choices left off. 

A single grain of sand produces a beautiful pearl. How can something so precious come from something so painful? 

Grief-stricken, Lacey realizes reality has caught up to her. 

Her silence has kept her trapped as if she was a frightened little girl. When Lacey finally speaks up, what she unburies will forever haunt her. 

The choices she makes only seem to hurt those she loves. When Lacey tries to stand up for herself, she faces a choice. A choice she will be forced to live with for the rest of her life. 

If life hands you more grief than happiness, and the guilt of letting someone down consumes you, what will it take to move on? 

When sorrow threatens to drown her, will Lacey triumph over her inner demons to discover her own pearl?

The Destructive Series is something I've been working on reading since the first one came out. The first book threw me in that I just didn't understand how we could have a hero who sucked so hard. It's one of those stories that you have to remind yourself that though the heroine made some really stupid have to account for her age. When thinking what to put in my review for Destructive Release I thought that my first reaction said it best. So, I'm going to copy and paste the PM I sent to LU Ann the second I finished. It's been slightly altered to remain spoiler free :) 

One of the things I love most is that everything didn't need to be perfect for it to be a beautiful story. Life is fucked up most of the time and you don’t have to have it all fall in line to love the life you have. It’s the people in it that make it beautiful, not how “perfect” they are.

I seriously can’t say how much I loved this story. It was a beautiful end to a beautiful story. And I have every confidence that Lacey will have a happily ever after…it just won’t come from a Disney movie. 


Destructive Silence, Based on a True Story (A Destructive Novel Book 1) 

Author L.U. Ann recently 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.
Destructive Silence is her debut novel. It is one of three books in The Destructive Series. Each book will hit its reader with lots of angst hoping for a happily ever after.
