Moving back home wasn't anything I ever wanted.
But after enduring the worst,
Going home was the only answer.
Being back is everything I thought it would be...
Awful, isolating, a constant reminder of what I lost.
And the last thing I need--or want--is another reminder of my past,
Especially Bryant Wood.

That's all I feel--all I can see when I look at Savannah

After a tragedy, Savannah returns to her hometown and with her parents' help, she tries to move on. On her twenty-seventh birthday her friends take her out to the local bar where the sexy barkeeper hits on her. Bryant recognises Savannah almost immediately as the one that got away. He had a crush on her during high school but since he was a jock and she the one with brains, he had remained silent so she never knew.

Now Bryant has a second chance, a chance he never dreamt he ever get - but he has

I just read Seven by Susan Renee and I am still wondering something that probably has totally nothing to do with the book – but – Dear Author … are you by any chance a fan of Startrek Voyager? … (having said that – if she is – she will know what I am referring to)

Savannah and Bryant’s story was an interesting one.

There were several moments when I found myself rolling my eyes because some things were just too obvious (the “secret”) and in the first few chapters I almost thought Bryant was kind of

I was stuck in this book, I literally had a hard time putting it down! The people I got to meet in this book are hella strong, sarcastic, and still able to follow their hearts. This book gave me hope for the people I grew to love and have all the best work out for them. There are some twists and turns that I think made this story complete! Thank you Susan Renee for allowing me the gift of reading your book!!

A tearjerker that definitely brings on the emotions. I'm not going to give away spoilers -- better to take each step as it comes as the story unfolds. Nothing you haven't read before, but this author does tell a poignant story that unveils her own twist. Be forewarned that there is an overabundance of angst and heartbreak.

This book had me crying within the first chapter and more throughout the entire book. Seven by Susan Renee is a book about a woman who loses everything in one fateful event and her struggle to keep moving forward. I don’t know if I would have been as strong as this character if I was her. My heart broke for her and I just wanted to reach inside my book and give her a hug.

This was a book which took me by surprise and had me running for the tissue box! Damn...I wasn't ready for it. I mean, I know you get the hint that Savannah is going to have devastation in her life, but be prepared. I cried BIG.FAT.TEARS. The good news? What comes afterwards is worth foraging through the tissues back to the book. The main highlight? Bryant. HOT DIGGITY DOG.

First thought on this guy? Douche reformed. Second thought? A guy misjudged by stupid teenage hormones. I *almost* want to

I almost put this book down after the first chapter. Not because it was a bad book, but because I knew it would get me. There are books that make you laugh. Books that make you mad. There are those that make you fall in love. Then there are books that hurt your heart. This book is all of those. Yes, I cried. Not many books will do that, but this one did. I loved this story and more. Susan touches on so many emotions in this story, I just wanted to ask her WHY! Why it happened!? Of co

Seven by Susan Renee is a good book, though not an easy one to get through in the beginning. The thing that I love about this book even though it makes me sad is that this book is real. What happens in this book to the main character isn’t a situation that leaves you thinking “oh this could never happen”, as it has happened to many people. When a book deals with issues such as this one does, and does a good job doing so, it makes the book and characters relatable and I absolutely love it… even t ...more

Seven, by Susan Renee, was not an easy story to begin reading - it starts with devastation. Savannah Turner lost everything in one day, a day of the year that should be a sign of new beginnings, of hope – it was everything but. Then the story goes into guilt. Bryant Wood wants to give Savannah everything she deserves. He wants to comfort and console her, love her and thank her for gift given to him – yet he cannot as he feels it will destroy everything and her. This is a story of loss, a story o ...more

Seven is a must-read book, especially if you want to cry as you read it, just don’t read it in public. I was in tears on page two and several other times. I mean like serious ugly cry tears. I managed to read it in just over a day, I could not put it down.

Savannah has dealt with the worse kind of tragedy any adult could and no person should have to deal with. As the lone survivor of a horrible accident she must say goodbye to ones she loves and then learn how to live her life again without them.

Seven by Susan Renee is a highly emotional read. The book was well written, and the characters were likeable. It’s not a book I ever considered putting down, but it was highly charged and emotional. The complete and utter loss and devastation that Savannah suffers at the beginning of the book is pretty extreme. I don’t know how one person could get past that and continue living. I liked the book because it shows the possibilities of opening yourself up again, despite the pain of the

I completely loved Seven by Susan Renee, this book was so emotionally written that you can feel it in every page of the book.
Savannah knew what love and happiness were until one night it was all taken from her in the most tragic way. She is not sure if she will ever get over the pain that she feels. Her parents pack her up and move her back home; eventually she gets a job and is able to put on smile so placate everyone around her. Almost three years later on her 27th birthday the g

Romance for all

I was totally unprepared for the emotional roller coaster this beautiful story evoked. The author has vast knowledge on the subject of death ,grief, loss of a child and husband, falling in love again and the dialogue of love to his girlfriend had humor, tenderness,thoughtfulness was so selfless I wanted to find a clone of him. The Book flies the reader on a romantic ride to a tender dialogue between the principles. And we get a HEA.
Recommend highly.

I have just finished reading Seven by Susan Renee, and I am amazed! Seven is an incredible story about the journey the heroine Savannah takes throughout the book. In the beginning, we get a look into tragic events that led to the main character going into a depression. In the car with her husband and Peyton, her seventeen month old baby girl, Savannah’s car slips on the icy road and crashes over the median.

Fuck! Don’t read this book at work…or anywhere in public that you might not want anyone to see you crying. It’s a tear jerker from page one! Seriously….lots of tears!

Yep, that would have been good to know before I started it at my desk!

The subject matter is not easy. Savannah has lost both her husband and her daughter by the end of the first chapter! Don’t panic, I’m not giving away the whole book! Let’s just say it was hard to read as a parent, and Renee did really well at getting t

Seven by Susan Renee is an intense, spine tingling, and emotional standalone novel about love, loss, and learning to move past grief. It’s told from alternating point of views by Bryant Wood and Savannah Turner and includes childhood flashbacks. I absolutely loved everything about this book-from the well-developed characters to the beautifully written words, Susan Renne will leave you thinking about the story long after you’ve finished.

"She's the one that got away. Strike that, she's the one I never had the balls to try for, and now that she's back, she's broken." ~ Bryant

And he's there to put the pieces back together. Bryant, who hasn't had it the easiest himself the past few years, sees Savannah in his bar and all of the feelings he's had towards her over t
