Love. Who needs that? Who would want that? Who hasn't had their heart split in two, because they were never their first option, and damn sure their second. I have. But I stayed. Why did I stay? It was love. I wanted to finally feel that I was wanted. It didn't matter if he thought I was worthless. It didn't matter if he degraded me, because he felt like it. Any love is

Suddenly Us is written by Marie Skye. This is my first read bu this Author. Marie Skye did a great job on this book. The story is well written. This book is filled with emotions. Gwen felt worthless, everyone she knows belittled her. Gwen's life has been filled with nasty, hateful remarks about her weight, clothes, really about everything. Gwen has been put down her whole life. But then one day Gwen meets Blake, he makes her feel wanted, but it wasn't real. Because soon after Blake starts to abu ...more

Wow!
Suddenly Us was a heart gripping read that had me hooked from the very beginning. This is the story of Hawkins and Gwen. Both have pasts that they are haunted by. Will they have what it takes to heal each other. I won't dive into the storyline in fear of spoiling the book for readers. Marie has done an amazing job telling their stories and I could not put it down. It's a story of love, overcoming horrible pasts, trust, and learning to move forward. This is a standalone and a must read!!!

Talk about starting off with a bang! My jaw is literally on the floor right now. If this is just the beginning of this book I can only imagine what the rest will hold for me. Gwens online date is quite the creep! Thank goodness Hawkins came to the rescue! Then later when Grayson is looking for security detail for the girls night out and Hawkins rejects a guy for Gwen saying he is a criminal because he has parking tickets.

5 ‘but wish it could be more’ stars!!!!
Suddenly Us is a fantastic, emotional yet incredibly steamy novel by Marie Skye. This book could be read as a standalone novel but does feature the characters from her amazing Incapable series. That series remains one of my favourites ever so I could not wait to read this authors new book and it was more than worth the wait! It is beyond doubt one of my best reads so far this year!

5 Stars Review

Suddenly us was a fantastic book! The characters were beyond relatable and I loved the story line. It was funny and I found it incredibly captivating. The story is told in both the main characters POV’s, it’s told in the present tense but there are moments in the past as well. Marie Skye is an incredibly talented author and she made it very easy to fall into her world.

I absolutely loved Gwen, I really related to her, which made reading the story so easy. She

By: Marie Skye
5 out of 5 stars

The story Suddenly Us by Marie Skye is a mystery/suspense romance book. This is the love story of Gwen and Hawkins. Two souls that are haunted by the past. Looking for true love and their soul mate. Will they find what they are looking for in each other’s arms? There are some books that just leave an imprint on your heart and this story is one of them. If I could I would rate it far higher than a 5. This story had me from the very beginning and I couldn’t

It isn’t often that I send a message to an author about their book and my response to it before I am finished reading. Suddenly Us made me do just that. About eighty percent through the book, I had had enough crying and I had to tell the author that she had affected me this way. I finished reading, put my kindle down and sighed. I had just read a story so honestly told that I thought it was my own. In the description of this story Marie Skye tells us that there is some truth to this story and it ...more

Suddenly Us by Marie Skye – 4 stars

This book may contain triggers of domestic abuse.

“When a person breaks your heart, it could take years to heal…” Marie Skye

Suddenly Us is the story of Gwen and Hawkins. This is the first Marie Skye book I’ve read and it appears that these two characters are from the Incapable trilogy. I was able to navigate the book pretty well and because there was never any background supplied for the cross over characters I had to assume who/what they are.

WOW!!! I loved this book so much. Hawkins is the PERFECT gentleman and I think that Grayson has taught him a lot on how to handle a woman. Hawkins was just amazing and HOT as can be. He had me swooning over him. Hawkins works for Grayson and his number one job is to protect Emmalin. Grayson lost her once and it was Hawkins job to make sure it never happened again. I loved how sweet and caring he could be and when he wanted something he did not let anything stop him from getting it. He has his ey ...more

Gwen has been told all her life that she was never good enough and as result spent five years in a relationship were she wasn’t treated well because she thought she deserved no better.

Hawkins has never fully recovered from his military service and his last failed mission and he doesn’t believe that anyone can depend on him.

Gwen has never felt love not really except maybe her friends but her mother has always put her down and when her boyfriend of five years told her she was worthless and he was done. What she found out later was he had been cheating on her for a while but she is ok she has sworn off men for now.
Hawkins is doing guard duty for Grayson and Emmalin but the only one he seems to guard is Gwen but Gwen is a tough nut to crack she thinks no one would want to be with her because she is fat and useless. Ju

I loved this book so much. This was my first read from this author, and I will definitely be looking up her other books. Hawkins is the kind of man any girl would be happy to call her own. Gwen is battling her own demons and Hawkins is just the person to help her through them. This book touches on a topic that many women go through and is hard to deal with. A great read!

I didn't finish reading this book because I was far too confused. I first thought the author decided to change the character's name from Emmalyn to Gwen, but now I realize those are separate characters which just confuses me even more.

Suddenly Us by Marie Skye a sublime five Star read. This is a stand-alone story, but we have met a lot of the characters in the Incapable series, Gwen comes into her own in this book, she faces things that many people with recognise and it may cause trigger issues for some people. But as the author says, if it makes you uncomfortable she did her job right, and she deserves a medal for doing a job well done. You may be uncomfortable but its dealt with in such a great manner as always that you com ...more

Suddenly Us is a phenomenal book written by Marie Skye. I fell in love with Ms. Skye’s work while reading the Incapable Series. Her books branded themselves on my heart and I became an insta-fan. I had been anticipating the release of this book for a while now and was really excited to finally have it in my hands. I never questioned if it would be any good- that’s a given. I am happy to report that this story is all that I could have hoped for, and more…… it’s delicious- completely addict

Suddenly Us by Marie Skye 5 Stars

This book brought out feelings in me that I thought were buried deep enough to never surface again. It rocked me to the core! Marie has a way of writing stories to get under your skin and this one didn't disappoint. The story of love after abuse was wonderfully written and so painstakingly believable. It had me laughing and crying along with the characters. A very well written book about how we perceive ourselves isn't always how others do. Beauty is in the eyes

This book is a spin-off of another series by Marie Skye, whose main characters function as side characters in this one.

Gwen is a young woman with a dysfunctionel relationship with her family, but a very tight bond with her friends. She's single after five years in a bad relationship and now she is taking a step forward and going on a date. The date however turns out to be horrible and within the first five minutes of seating Gwen is outraged with her date and leaves.

Enter Hawkins to the rescue!

This is the first book I have read by Marie Skye and I look forward to reading more. Suddenly Us keep me interested through the entire book, there was drama, action and romance that keep reading till the end.

Gwen has been made to feel fat and undeserving her entire life from both her mother and her ex Blake. Even after Blake broke up her and moved on she continued to have very low self-esteem from years of being told nobody would want her. Blake wouldn’t even include her in his family holidays
