I. Love. This. Story! With every book I fall more and more in love with this crew! The men are sexy and strong, yet sweet and vulnerable and totally devoted to their women. The women are soft yet totally bad-ass, each able to hold their own, but at the same time, lost without their men. Perfect matches, each couple, and

This. Book. This dang book y’all. From the second I read the first in this series I knew this was going to be one of my favorite series, but nothing could prepare me for how each book was better and better than the last. Every Tear You Cry takes it to a whole new level. There are so many things that happen in this book that made me fall in love with it. Almost too many to list, but I’m sure going to try.
Fair warning, you’ll be ugly crying. It’s going to happen. Don’t care how tough you are. Thi

4 stars!

This is my first book from this author and now I want more. I NEED more!

Before you read this book though, please know that there are trigger warnings. Lots of. Clara, the female MC, endured physical, emotional and psychological abuse. The male MC suffered from psychological abuse. So if you cannot read about a book with these elements thrown, do not read it. If you can, then I'll think you'd appreciate this book.

The characters were broken as you may have guessed. At first they were weak

I’ve loved Clara and her transformation from victim to survivor since the first time I met her in this series. I knew that she would need a strong, loving man who has a few scars of his own to be worthy of her, and Brantley fills that role perfectly. They’ve both been torched by monstrous spouses in the past and have both endured abuse, physical AND psychological for Clara and psychological for Brantley, yet they find their way to the perfect HEA together.

Once you feel guilt, regret and get triggered by events from the past, can you really heal?
All it takes is a special person that would give you the world if only you let them in.
Every Tear You Cry is the story of second chances, learning to trust again and finding your HEA with your one!
It’s a story of letting go of the demons and leaving the past in the rear view and never looking back .
It’s a story of falling in love with a gorgeous man and his beautiful daughter and becoming one.

This is another emotional and gripping book in the Redeeming Love series. This story will leave you crying, laughing, screaming in frustration and cheering. Brantley is another alpha male hero who has a soft centre, a giant heart, when it comes to his family and Clara. Though he met Clara months ago, and was immediately smitten, he has been reluctant to move toward a relationship with her. His ex was and is a nightmare, and he is understandably wary of starting anything new. But he hasn’t been a ...more

Oh, Clara and Brantley... these two are an incredible combination of complete opposites attracting. Clara was abandoned as a baby, grew up in foster care, was brutally abused by her husband, and while raising her two boys she now is facing eviction and feels broken. And Brantley, well, he was brought up by wealthy parents who refused to raise spoiled children, he’s a lawyer, and his first wife intentionally got pregnant to get a meal ticket, she ignores their daughter except as a means to an end ...more

Oh my, yet another scorching hot, emotionally charged, deep, poignant and yet hilariously funny book. This series is fabulous, and this latest book featuring Clara (a domestic abuse survivor) and Brantley (hot lawyer with a heart of gold) and the rest of the gang we have come to know and love!! Brantley is moving to Georgia to be closer to his family, which means he will be closer to Clara, and therefore neither will be able to escape the chemistry and deeper connection that they both feel.

It's review time 🎧
Warning ⚠️: violence, rape, children abuse, survival.

Narrator score🎧 ; both narrator's were absolutely perfect! I loved them both. The female narrator voice was a bit whiny but it was good for the character she did. So it was great.

Level of steam🔥: i will call it a big slow burn, because even before the book starts the couple were pining for each other, when they get to the sex its hot, and sweet and lovely.

Level of anxiety and sadness 😱: the book wasn't e

This book is full of all the feels. Clara manages to escape her abusive marriage, but not without a lot of scars. She’s trying her best to move on for herself and for her two sons.

Brantley and his daughter Bella are moving into town to be closer to his brother, and farther away from his crazy ex wife. When Brantley and Clara are together again, months after meeting for the first time, their chemistry is out of this world. Brantley knows Clara has a past, and that he has to tread carefully, but

It isn't ever easy being a single parent and both Clara and Brantley know it is easier to keep your heart guarded then let it get hurt again but one look at Clara and her boys and Brantley knows that the little family of his is going to get a little bigger.

Clara escaped from a hellous life with only her two boys; Declan and Liam, so the last thing she wants is a relationship with someone new. That all changes when Brandon walks in with his daughter Bella. Brandon has only known his money grubbing ex-wife who never cared about his daughter, when Clara just embraces Bella and loves

I cried, laughed, was angered, and disgusted--disgusted by the actions of the characters. Ok, two characters in particular. I do think that I would have had a better understanding of the characters had I read the previous four books--which are now in my Amazon list. 
Some of the content was a bit difficult to read--the details from Clara's abusive marriage and the things her husband did to her. But these horrific events shaped Clara into the strong and independent woman that she is. I did have to

This is my first hook by this author and I know this is a series and I likely should have read the others first. It was ok though I followed along perfectly. This is book four in the Redeeming Love series. Read with caution the first chapter alone has some major triggers. I found some of it hard to read. It made me want to toss the kindle. So may feel and emotions running around here. You will laugh and cry. Then you will cry again from laughing. These people draw you in and they will tu
This is book 4 in the Redeeming Love series and while each book can be read as a standalone you will miss out on this crazy, nutty and loving family. Start in any order you choose, but I do highly recommend reading the others cause while you know them as secondary characters and some of their stories that we see, their own book just reveals even more moments that leave you breathless or tearful (good and bad). This is Clara’s story. If you read the other books than you know a little about her ba ...more
*** Received an ARC from the Author for my honest review***

I was just past the first few pages when my tears started falling. Oh my goodness what a beautiful story this was.

Clara had to endure so much pain and suffering at the hands of her husband. She would do anything to protect her two little boys. She had no one, she was in foster care all of her young life. After the brutal attack from her husband she was taken in by Toluca Women's Shelter for battered women, and this is where her new life

This title will describe you as you read this book. It's such a beautiful and heartbreaking story. If you are unfamiliar with this series, each book features a different couple. It centers around a women's shelter and all the leading ladies either work in it, or are residents. The Heroine of this book is Clara who we are introduced to in book one. She is a victim of domestic abuse. The Hero is Brantley, the brother of the shelters security guard, whom she met when he was in town for his brother' ...more

The Redeeming love series from JE Parker is one of the best series I have written this year. Just when I think she has written her best book yer she comes back and she releases another book that is phenomenal. These are triggers in this book, but there is also so much love, so much emotion, and such a beautiful healing process. Clara thinks that she can never give her love to any other man because the one she put her trust on was a monster that nearly killed her. She is the mother of two boys wh ...more

Man how I love to find new to me authors!! It is the true definition of #bookwormbliss - Finding a new author; then discovering they have written over a dozen books...that right there sums up what I am feeling.

Every Tear You Cry is the latest in the Redeeming Love series...and as grandmama would say, you can bet your daggum behind I will be adding all the others to my TBR list.

I can honestly say you can read this as a stand alone, seeing as though this is the first story I have read. But I feel
JE Parker has done it again! Another gut-wrenching, tear-inducing story that leaves you with smiles at the end. Clara and Brantley's story is a roller coaster of emotions, both good and bad, that leaves you with a feeling of hope.

Clara has been through the worst of the worst, and come out with scars, inside and out. Her past can't come back to get her, but it is still haunting her, still controlling her, still keeping her from happiness. Her strength is immeasurable, her love unending. She is d

I really enjoy books where children are involved and play a big part in the story. I think mainly cause when I first started reading more, I read a series called seduction and snacks, and the child in that story cracked me the fuck up. Ever since then, I’ve made it a point to find books where children are in it. Sometimes it’s not as funny, or children play a minor part, but this Was one of the times I struck gold. These kids were hilarious, but also incredibly sweet. I really enjoyed Clara and ...more

I can’t get over this author and her stories! J. E. Parker was suggested to me by a follow reader when I was in a horrible book funk and was told I would not be disappointed and let me tell you I was not. Every story gets better and the character more amazing. I was already eager to read about Clara after meeting her in Every Moment For You because you knew this women had already been through so much and was already so strong.

Everyone has a story and this is Brantley and Clara’s. It will touch your hearts, pull on its strings, break you time and time again, bring you to tears and then put all the pieces back together again.

It’s full of emotion, but not only will you cry from tears of sadness, it’s so good that you will cry from happiness as well as, the humor in it will have tears of laughter streaming down your face too. This is their story, but their friends and family bring so much fun and love to this book it’s

Amazing book by this author. Clara was totally broken in body, heart and soul. Her husband had been a monster and Clara and her sons endured more terror than anyone should ever have to. Brantley is jaded by his ex-wife. Money grubbing, horrid witch that only cares for herself. He is raising his daughter and when he and Clara met several months back he knew what he and his daughter needed. He is determined to make Clara and her two sons his and he is willing to do whatever it takes for Clara to f ...more

I'm so in love with The makeshift family that Parker has created in her books. In this one, she wrote the heartwretching story of Clara and how she and her two sons found their forever with Brantley Morgan. We met Brantley in book 3 as Evan's twin brother who was moving to the area with his daughter Bella after a mean divorce.

I love how he saw through Clara's walls and helped her and the boys through PTSD and domestic violence flashbacks. Parker addresses Clara's actions in a straightforward an
