Product Description

This story is based on actual events. As the reader, it's up to you to determine what is fact, and what is fabricated, for it will never be revealed, to protect those involved. You just may be surprised.


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 better than no love...right?


Every day, I'm haunted and tormented. When, I look in the mirror I see a failure. A failure that let people that needed me down. I worry that it will happen again. If it happens to the people I care about the most, I don't think I could live with myself. Can I put my torturous past behind me and start to enjoy life? Especially now that I have a reason to live it?

Warning: Certain Scenes may cause a Trigger, or make you uncomfortable. If it does, then I did my job. You've been warned.

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 addictive and tremendously entertaining.
Gwen made my heart ache for her. I wanted to storm the pages of the book and put a few people in their ‘places’. She had been conditioned for so long into believing that there was something wrong with her, that she was flawed and unacceptable. Her mother spent most of the time trying to control her appearance, diet, and life. Having such a low opinion of herself then left her vulnerable to being preyed on and used; and so Blake comes into her life and does exactly that. Again nothing she did was good enough, but Gwen settled because she was in love with him and was determined to make things work. She constantly made excuses for his bad behaviour, because she was so desperate to feel wanted and loved. Ultimately Blake betrays her. WOW, how am I not surprised that the douche-canoe could be even more contemptible than he already was!
Her experience has left her with absolutely zero self-worth; she is still reeling from her disastrous history with men but is determined to try to move on. She finds herself agreeing to a ‘date’ with a man she’s only spoken to over the internet. Needless to say, the evening ends badly and she walks out on the date, right into the path of a dangerously sexy man, who she vaguely recognises.

I am a massive fan of everything that Marie Skye has published, but this book is beyond anything that I could of ever thought this book would be. It smashed through my expectations and has touched me in a way that is equally heartwarming and heartbreaking. We meet Gwen, who is beautiful and sweet but has extreme low self esteem. The most important people in her life have been the ones to constantly put her down while mentally, emotionally and sometime physically abusing her to make herself believe she is unworthy and incapable of being loved. Hawkins is head security of Gwen's bestfriend Emmalins husband Grayson. Hawkins (yes ladies, he is extremely HOT) is intense, unwavering in his attention, protective and loyal, when his paths cross with Gwen he finds an undeniable chemistry that now captures his mind, body and soul. When battling their own demons, they try to trust one another with the burdens that have plagued them constantly, but their battles aren't so easily done. Throughout the book we get to see Gwen and Hawkins navigate their relationship with hardship and struggle and both wondering if they can fix one another enough to make it work and last.
I have read a lot of books in my life, but I have never been so emotionally invested and empathetic towards a character like Gwen, there was something so relatable and captivating about her story that it resonated to me unlike any other character I've ever read. She seemed so fragile and downtrodden, yet I saw strength in her ability to keep going. Hawkins was the perfect balance and character for the endless strength, support, protection and understanding that he provided not just to Gwen but to his family and friends.

Gwen wants love in her life but it’s easier said than done. After years of giving love to the one, he took it and never gave it back, did he? All he did was hurt her in more ways than one. Gwen was never good enough for him or his family, he thought she was worthless and made her believe it. He degraded her because he could. But Gwen stayed because she thought it was love, wasn’t it? She did not know any different, she had been told it her entire life. She has been destroyed. She holds a secret she has never told anyone.

Hawkins was in the military forces but now he has a good job in security. He is good at his job and will do whatever it takes to keep others safe. But a failure from his past continues to torment him. If he closes his eyes he is haunted everyday by a horror he can not forget. He has sworn to one day make it right. He worries that it could happen to those he loves and cares about but he would die before that happens, he could not live with himself if it happened.

Will Gwen find love? Can she live with all that has happened in her life, or will it finally break her? Can she trust? Can Hawkins put his past behind him? Can he finally start to enjoy love? Will Hawkins throw it all away?

Gwen is such a strong, brave and beautiful person. You can not help feeling for her for all she has had to endure. All she has ever wanted is to be loved and I wanted to take her home and make it all better. Hawkins is the man, although he comes across a little too strong at times but he truly is a good man who loves hard and fast and is also one sexy man. He knows what he wants and goes after it. This is a great story. I recommend reading this captivating story. I definitely want to read more from this author.

Suddenly Us
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 stop until I had read the ending page. Not only is the story amazing, so are the characters of Gwen and Hawkins. Gwen is a woman who has self-doubts about herself. She has been hurt and doesn’t believe that any man can look past how she looks to see what is really inside. Her friends try to reassure her of her beauty and that she is a person worthy of having true happiness. Then one night changes everything. Gwen finds a connection beginning between her and Hawkins. Will she let him into her heart?

Hawkins is a man that is haunted by his past. His life fell apart because of a failed romance and then a failed mission. He then finds that he has a connection with Gwen and would protect her at all costs. Hawkins is a man that takes his current work very seriously. Security is what he does and prides himself on making sure that when he is on the job his attention is fully focused on the task at hand. He is finding this harder and harder as his feelings for Gwen grows. His protectiveness comes out in full force. Can Hawkins convince Gwen that she is worthy of his love and that she is the one that has stolen his heart?

I have read previous books by the author and when I found out that she wrote this new one I just had to read it. Her characters come alive and are unforgettable. The story will have you rooting for Gwen and Hawkins to get their HEA. If you’re looking for a story that will leave you breathless, this is the one. This book does deal with sensitive subjects and has adult situations. It would be recommended for those 18 years of age or older.

5.0 out of 5 stars She has done it again!!! Absolutely amazing!! 11 April 2017

Suddenly Us by Marie Skye is a heart gripping romance. Gwen never thought she would find love. After having her heart split in two by Blake she is determined that love is just not in the cards for her. She stays with him for far longer than she should even though he emotionally abuses her, she stays because it was love, a bad kind of love, but still love. Then one day it’s over and she must pick up the pieces. Move on and maybe find love again. But how will she know if it’s real this time? Who could ever really love someone like her? She might want to be loved but doesn’t think she deserves it.
Hawkins has demons, they torment him at all hours of the day and night. He sees his life as a failure, a mission that was never completed. He is always worried about letting the people that need him down because it’s happened before, so it could happen again. And if it does he won’t be able to live with himself. When Gwen comes into his life he must change his way of thinking. Can he put the past behind him and live for more than just his missions? Can they help each other see that they both deserve to be loved?
I am speechless; this book is everything that a romance should be. I started reading and from the very beginning it had me trapped. Trapped in the heart-breaking stories of Gwen and Hawkins. The things they both went through are things that happen every day, they effect the people around you but no one ever seems to talk about them. This book breaks the barriers on PTSD and abuse, Hawkins shows Gwen the light, that it is not okay what happened to her and that it never should have happened. And Gwen heals Hawkins, because that is what love does, it heals the wounds that the past has left. I must say that Marie Skye is one amazing author and I cannot wait to read what she puts out next.

Suddenly Us by Marie Skye Rated 5 stars

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. Ha ha ha....he is in so much trouble! This is a great start to the book. It pulled me in with the shock moment which went to sympathy for the girl then a hot guy rescue!

I loved reading this book! It is my first book by Marie Skye and it will not be the last. This book was suspenseful, had head-shaking humor and let's not forget heart swelling love. There each had some personal issues to deal with and they were dealt with in this story. I don't want to give much away :-) it really made me FEEL for each of their plights. Having never experienced either I felt like I could understand each issue with the way it was written. I loved all the characters in the book even though sometimes I felt like I was missing something. It does make me want to ready about Grayson and Emmalin's story. So that will be next on the agenda.

Hawkins is one scary guy. Not sure I would want to meet him on the dark somewhere unless he was on my side. He is a alpha guy who protects all that he cares about no matter what. I loved the reception he got when he visited his family. It made my heart swell. On the flip side I felt sorry for him with his previous marriage....he deserves more than her! Hopefully he can get Gwen to comply and she will be his.
Gwen seems very unsure of herself. I know she was in a bad relationship but she is lucky Hawkins didn't give up on her. If only everyone could have their own Knight in shining armor :-) named Hawkins.
They each gave all they have to other people that didn't care about them. What do they have left and is it enough for each other?

So many favorite moments in this story and the ending couldn't have been better!

Suddenly Us
By Marie Skye
5 Star Review

Suddenly Us by Marie Skye is a five star story and full emotion. I thoroughly enjoy a book that really makes you feel for the characters and also identify with the journey they are on.

Gwen has been through a lot in her life and has never felt loved. Her parents and her ex-boyfriend Blake made her feel very worthless and she doesn’t believe she deserves love in her life. She has doubts about how she looks and believes her appearance is her downfall. She believes the with the way she looks that any man in their right mind wouldn’t even take a chance on her. Her friends try to convince her how special she is and that the right man will truly see her.

Hawkins is your typical alpha ex-military man; he protects the people who are important to him. But, his life fell apart, when he was hurt by a woman he thought he loved. Then a failed mission continues to haunt him, he takes his work very serious and he prides himself on his focus to his jobs.

Hawkins and Gwen meet and the connection are strong for the both of them. Gwen is unsure of herself but Hawkins is drawn to her and is finding it hard to keep his feelings in check. The more Gwen gets him to trust her and open up the more his protectiveness grows. What happens when two people who have been burned by love find the one person who makes them feel? Will Gwen believe she is truly worthy of love?

This story pulled at me, I felt for Gwen but she was still very likeable. I always wanted an alpha man in my life to make me feel important and protective. The fact that the author made me feel this much for both these characters truly sets the story beyond 5 stars.
