Product Description

This is a standalone novel.

Warning:

This book contains content that may be offensive to some readers.
Including sexual assault (flashbacks), adult situations, and graphic language.


I knew the exact moment I had become a ‘yes’ girl.
December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.
The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.
The dream of a ‘happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.
The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.

I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.
I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.
I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.
The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.

A girl who can’t say no.
A guy who craves redemption.
A chance encounter?

It all comes down to this.
One question.
One month.

Be My December?

Overall I really enjoyed this book but some things held me back from a higher star rating.

*Spoilers*
I personally found the assault scenes difficult to handle as they were so graphic. I couldn't understand Ky's anger towards her from the start. Why did he care that she wanted to reinvent herself with a new name granted what she had been through? Why was he so mean and unpredictable? He said he has always been interested that coupled with his guilt should have made him nicer to her not rude. I also felt that there would be too much written around him being her savior and how he had been her light etc. It probably didn't need to be mentioned so often.

With all of that said it was an enjoyable and easy read and I liked a lot of the angst. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

Another Freaking amazing book from Rachel. This complex book allows you to peek into the experiences of a troubled girls past, the trials and tribulations that she encounters and endures. She is so disturbed that she actually moves away from her home and lives elsewhere, but a significant job opportunity arises and she temporarily returns. Or will is only be temporarily - if that man with the heart of gold has got any thing to do with it.

Cant wait for another best seller from Rachel. BRING IT ON.

OMG! This book was simply amazing, it had it all; suspense, laughter, tears, sex, love, intrigue. It deals with a horrible topic (rape) but it is in no way glorified and it is dealt with in a way that makes you realise how strong the characters are and how such a tragic situation made them the successful and in the end happy people who they are today.
Both of the lead characters were loveable and you are rooting for them the entire what though and the ending was simply gorgeous.
I think this is by far Rachel's best work, I cannot wait to read more from this amazing Aussie author.

After saying 'No' led to the worst experience of her young life, Eden Rivers has given up on the whole idea. In some weird twisted way, her subconscious is protecting her from facing that same fate again by cutting off her ability to enunciate that one crucial word. Despite that handicap, she's struggled her way towards healing, towards building a new life for herself in the years since, and has developed a range of strategies to try and protect herself from the dangers inherent in her new reality.

Ky Crawford is a tortured soul haunted by his past, utterly convinced that he's the least worthy person on the planet to step into the role of 'Knight in Shining Armor' yet when Eden walks into his life, and straight into trouble, he can't stop himself.

Thus begins one of the most messed up romances I've ever read, between two incredibly wounded people. Both incredibly drawn to each other, both desperately trying to hide the truths they never reveal to anyone, yet almost powerless to ward off the bond growing between them.

I found the nobility of Ky's quest to not ask for what he so desperately craves, from the girl who can't say no to be be incredibly touching, and while my heart broke for what happened to Eden, and marveled as she struggled to rise above what had been done to her, the true depths of Ky's burden completely shattered me.

Trapped for years in a prison of his own making, the only person who has the key to unlock it is completely oblivious.

Told first person from alternate POVs, Be My December by Rachel Brookes​ is a fascinating and riveting tale of pain and healing, of the purity of love and the depths of depravity. Dealing with tough, dark topics, the heaviness is leavened by light and beauty and no small amount of humor.

I’ll be honest. This was a difficult read. Not only because of the heartbreaking content, but for the character’s behaviour. The more I read, the more questions I had and the more frustrated I became. I even put the book down, gave myself a pep talk, spoke to another person who was reading it also to confirm my thoughts. We both proclaimed ‘we are no quitter’ and got back into reading.
Struggle number one.
I don’t understand her mindset and questionable coping skills. She has to ‘be someone else’ to go out at night but during her job, she’s allowed to be herself. Surely there are situations where she is hit on during her working day where she can’t just change her name. I really don’t relate to the heroine styled on allowing what’s happened to her, define her. It keeps her weak. Yes, it’s heartbreaking and horrible what happens to her but I don’t understand how this one incident can now lock her mindset into never saying no to someone and brings into question her mental health.
Struggle number two.
The way her mental health was glossed over left me frustrated. It’s not up Ky to fix her. In saying that, that’s a quality I like about Ky – he gave her the patience, the time, the love and affection. In saying that, he’s a loose cannon. He’s aggressive and dominant and then “couldn’t fathom her fear towards me.”
Struggle number three.
This book suffers ‘geographicals’ – the same situation (where Chris keeps finding her and then Ky has to intervene) but in different locations. It happened three times before I wanted to throw the book across the room. I get why it was done for the sense of doom clouding over but each time, she just lets it happen.
Struggle number four.
The fact that the Crawford brothers are so disrespectful to the girls they sleep with.
