Past and present intertwine with light and dark to tell a story …Because of Him

Something inside me fiercely craves normal.

Sheltered all my life and taught to be afraid, I want to be bold, fearless.

Up until now I’ve kept myself and my heart safe.

Tade Astor, a guy so hot he steals my breath away, jeopardizes it all.

He isn’t the kind of guy to give up on what he wants—me.

He’s determined to prove my safe world is missing something—him.

Even though he may not be the cocky guy I assumed him to be…

He’s definitely not the guy I should give my heart to.

But each time I see him, he becomes harder to resist.

I want to be brave and give him a chance… though it might come back to haunt me.

At the heart of Because of Him is a love story. But due to certain sensitive topics, it might not be suitable for all readers.


She glanced down, allowing her hair to create a wall between us. “You don’t even know me,” she said.

“I know you keep one side of your hair tucked behind your ear to reveal a tiny hoop earring pierced halfway down the curve of your ear. The piercing is most likely an act of defiance against your traditionally minded parents. You reveal it to show you’re your own person. But it’s the other side of your hair that hangs loose to hide your face that’s so telling. There is a part of you that’s a rebel but doesn’t want to be seen at the same time.”

While she sat dumbstruck, I reached out with my hand and allowed myself the touch of her cheek before brushing the hair to secure it behind the other naked ear.

“You shouldn’t hide a face as pretty as yours.”

H’s 5 Diamonds Review:

Because of Him is the first novel I’ve read by Terri E. Laine and I can’t believe she’s a new-to-me author. Where has she been hiding? Her writing style and quality is exactly what I look for when cracking open a book. Her words easily pulled me into this story and refused to let go, but I’m a very willing victim.

So, there are some serious secrets spread throughout the pages of this book. They are amazing and wonderful and shocking. This was so much more than a typical romance. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the past and present to unite. The lines slowly weave together to create an explosive discover that will leave you gasping.

I fell in love with Tade and Reagan effortlessly. Each have their own struggles and individual problems so a lot holds them back. This was a slower burn type of story in some respects but extremely angsty and dramatic too. I couldn’t wait to find every piece of this complex puzzle. Dive in and enjoy!
