Product Description

Nathalie Carter wants one thing: independence. She has paid her dues by living at home under her parents’ watchful eyes, earning grades to give her a ticket out and joining clubs she had no interest in to get into college.

She plans to experience things she believes every new adult should—from falling in love to playing beer pong and pulling an all-nighter to skipping class because she’s too hungover. But nothing ever seems to go as planned, and she gets pulled into a world she never imagined existed.

Samuel Torrington’s past refuses to release him from its vise-like grip; but he has a plan, and once his senior year of college is over, he can finally move away and start anew. His addictions help him get through day-to-day life, but he’s constantly battling darker demons.

Fate brings the two together, and chance takes them on a roller coaster ride that neither would dare hop off. Within destiny’s grasp, they realize there are two things impossible to fight—addiction and attraction.

*This book is intended for mature audiences due to sexual situations, language and drug use.*

*A sequel to A Reliant Love is due out 2015: Finding Sam.

Read on behalf of A Book Lovers Emporium Blog.
What an unusual, heart rending story. I spent a lot of this book flip flopping with my feelings for Sam and Nathalie. I felt her desperation and worry over Sam. The struggle was real for me. Their love was beautiful.
This story details addiction in a way that is an insight to me. Most books I've read previously that have involved drugs haven't shown the dark side of drug use and this book has opened my eyes to the flip side. The story was quite long winded and drawn out. Sad in places and just seemed like a futile struggle.
This story of Sam's addiction is scary and had me feeling completely at a loss as to how I would have dealt with him. How could I help him? Would I help him or just wash my hands of him. Would that make me a bad person?
Not a pretty world to be involved in.
Sam is just counting down the days until he can finish college and move as far away as possible from everything that reminds him of his past mistakes.
He meets and is instantly attracted to Nathalie.
Their love is wonderful and strong. Sam wasn't planning on this happening. He is hanging around with the wrong people. Smoking too much cannabis and being tempted from his 5 year drug free life.
Things go from bad to worse for Sam and Nathalie.
I can't help wondering how people who get off drugs can NOT relapse. It sounds horrendous!
I look forward to book two and hope Sam finds some sort of peace in his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Reliant Love is a very heartwarming read but at the same time it will rip your heart right out....Great read! 26 July 2016
By Nancy Allen (The Avid Reader) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don’t read many books in this genre but when I saw that it was by Taylor Lavati I knew I had to read it. You see Taylor has become another one of my favorite authors of all time so that means I want to read everything they have ever written no matter what the genre is. The first book by Taylor I read was The Last Legacy: Season One and let me tell you I fell in love with it and her writing. It was one of the best books I have ever read! Oh but this is not a review about The Last Legacy it is a review about A Reliant Love.

Although this is not a genre I read very often I do like it and need a change from zombies and dystopian once in a while. But when you have a great author the genre is not important or nor does it matter. A Reliant love is awesome read and Taylor will have your emotions running all over the place. Not only are your emotions going haywire but you are as well. Taylor writes in such a way that she will pull you into A Reliant Love right from the first word and won’t let go until the last word has been written and will leave you wanting more and more and more…..

Nathalie Carter is a young woman who has just left home for the first time and can’t wait to start her new life at college without her parents telling her what to do. For the first time in her life she will be alone and can do what she wants and with having to ask permission from anyone. Nathalie plans on getting her degree and starting a new life for herself somewhere down the road but in the mean time she plans on doing a littler partying and hopefully find a boyfriend along the way. Nathalie is a very good girl with a very big heart who likes to help people if she can.

Nathalie has a hard time trusting people though after her boyfriend in high school betrayed her. But she is determined not to let that get in her way of enjoying life and just having a good time or being happy. So when she runs into Sam a senior who just wants to finish up his last year and get on with his life and out of that town to boot all she wants to do is spend every waking minute with him. Sam and Nathalie have an instant attraction for each other but Sam has a lot of baggage that he is caring around that may just get in their way of being happy and together. The only way he can handle it is by tuning to drugs.
When Nathalie looks into Sam’s eyes she sees something good in him and wants to help him. But she soon realizes that her love alone cannot help Sam.

I loved reading A Reliant Love although I cried more times than I can count. A Reliant Love is a very heartwarming read but at the same time it will rip your heart right out of your chest or so you think. Taylor Lavati is such an awesome writer that she pulls you right into Nathalie and Sam’s world making you feel as if you are a part of it and that you are traveling down all their roads with them. The ending blew me away I never, never, never saw that one coming in a million years. You know I hated it but you know it was so awesome. Endings like that are what make for a great book. I can’t wait to read the next book Finding Sam. If you have not read A Reliant Love then I would definitely suggest that you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am Sam, or at least a Female Sam. 3 September 2015
By Angelica Berglund - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I dont know how I could have missed this book before... This is truly one of the best books I have ever been reading.

The story is so stunning and so beautiful and horrible at the same time. It feels very real and is exactly everything I want. Its romanc mixed with humour and real life problems. The drungs is a big part of the book and it feels like the author have god knowledge of how it is to use drugs and be with someone who has a drug addiction.

While reading this book I got the feeling that this is about me. I am Sam, or the female Sam. So much of this book is things i have gone through and it sads me and makes me strong to. I know the struggle Sam has and I so can relate to him and everything he does.
I can relate to Nat to but not as strongly as with Sam. As a former drug addict we all have been sober around other addicts.

There is sex and love in this book and it is well displayed but the book is not about that. this is a love story but not like any other love story. This book is more than that. This book has everything a great book should have and even more.

This is a book im gonna recomment to everyone I know because it is just awesome. I am so happy I got it and read it. I couldnt stop reading it. This is a book everyone should read and Need to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars love it!!!!! 9 August 2015
By miki kadosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
so I finished this book a few hours ago and just about now I can write my review.

The relationship between Nat and Sam is going on a fest road and at first I didn't like it but then I understood it.
Nat is so young and naïve and so freaking sweet that she instantly love, hate, hurt and her emotion are so strong.
I could emphasize with her because her goal is fixing the world and sometimes I do too.
I was and still shocked from the end.
I didn't consider that it could be.
Sam is not the loveable-charming hero like other books he is a real character with real issues and thoughts.
I cant say that I don't love him a bit but I cant say I'm in love with him either but he has a little magic that lures you to keep reading.

in addition the book has a education value about "don't do drugs" and I love it

I highly recommended reading this book!

waiting for the next book :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic Read 20 July 2015
By Karlin The Bibliophile(Contreras) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book.
Taylor's writing style really sucks you into this story of the darker side of life.
Most people love to read about happily ever afters and lighthearted love story, but that isn't what life is like.
I always say ignorance is bliss. And to read this novel about how life is really like is just amazing.
Don't take my word for it, don't read these reviews. Read the book yourself, and you will see the struggles of these characters and feel what they feel. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book 17 July 2014
By Ann J. (love to read) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It's about Nathalie who wants her independence from her family. She goes to college to finds friends and love. Then there's Sam who is trying to cope with his past and tries to do the right thing but keeps being pulled back to the dark side. Nathalie and Sam meet and try to help one another and it is a roller coaster of a ride. Lots of ups and downs. This is a page turner and I didn't want to put it down. The ending leaves you speechless and wanting more. Didn't like the ending but I am glad I read the book.
Hope you like it as much as I did.
Happy reading!!!
