LOSERS weepers by Nicole Williams - Blog Tour and Review Stop

New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release: February 24, 2015

If we didn’t know darkness, we couldn’t fully appreciate the light.
Garth Black’s more familiar with this concept than most people are. He hadn’t just lived in the dark for the majority of his life—he thrived in it. With a mom who’d bailed on him and a dad whose understanding of coddling started and ended with a bottle of whiskey, Garth had never been expected to rise to any sort of occasion other than following down the same dead-end paths.
That changed when he fell in love with Josie Gibson. After years of pulling each other closer before shoving the other way, they finally stopped shoving. Josie’s love is like nothing Garth’s ever experienced. He holds it close. He holds it sacred. He would do anything to preserve it and keep it from pollution, even if that means removing himself from the picture.
Garth might have been allowed a temporary furlough to bask in the light, but that pass has been revoked, and he’s been swallowed again by the dark. Will he revert to his old ways of hurting those he cares for most? Will he go back to the same destructive patterns . . . or will it be worse this time?
We can’t know light without first knowing dark . . . and Garth Black’s about to get acquainted with the dark in a whole new way.

 Suz's Review

When we last saw Garth Black, he was finally with the one he loved.... But life for Garth is never easy.

Garth is finally living his dream... he's with Josie, has a ring to give her and is competing to head to Nationals... until tragedy strikes. My heart instantly broke for Garth, again. I had hoped that life for him would be a HEA with Josie, but life is too bumpy for that.

Its hard to say too much without giving spoilers. 
The book centers around how life can take a turn for the worse and how the people around you can be there for you, no matter the cost to themselves.

'It means you rise, I rise; you fall, I fall. You hurt, I hurt; you succeed, I succeed.'

Garth starts to feel that he is not what is best for Josie again.

'We justify it because we want the best for them, and we realize we're not that.'
We get a peek into Jesse and Rowen and how life is for them.

'sometimes life needed to be laughed at instead of feared.'

About the Author
I’m the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of the CRASH series (HarperTeen, S&S UK), LOST & FOUND series, UP IN FLAMES (S&S UK), The EDEN TRILOGY, and a handful of others. I write stories about everyday kinds of people who find themselves in extraordinary kinds of situations. I tell love stories with happy endings because I believe in making the world a better place, and that’s one tiny way I can make it so. I’m one of those people who still believe in true love and soul mates, and would rather keep my head in the clouds any day over having my feet firmly on the ground.
