Product Description





Will she ever find a way to overcome the guilt?

The anger.

The pain.

Healing seems impossible.

Moving on...


Until him.

He's the only one who can save her.

But it comes with a heavy price.

"Life can be full of sorrow and grief but there can also be sunshine after the storm. There can be joy and happiness and light. But in order to fully appreciate that light, we have to walk through the darkness. We have to hold hands with pain and dance out in the rain. It’s the only way our heart can comprehend what love truly is." -Sylvie

Sylvie is one of those kinds of books that I find it very hard to say too much about without giving away too much.

Told first person, almost entirely from the point of view of the title character, the book opens up with Sylvie standing over the body of a man who, though it seems he's taken his own life, it's quite clear that she holds herself responsible.

It's that guilt that sets the scene for everything that follows, interspersed with flashbacks that gradually build a picture explaining why she feels that way.

Beyond the guilt though, there's strength. Strength in accepting consequences and making the most of things. Holding to convictions in the face of adversity, and sometimes, that can be part of the problem. If your convictions are telling you that you aren't deserving of forgiveness, how is moving on even possible.

A tumultuous emotional journey, Sylvie by K. Langston made me feel like the author was baring part of her very soul with her readers, and while I may never know how much fact was woven in with the fiction, I couldn't help but be moved by the sincerity with which Sylvie's emotive trials wafted from the page to my heart.

Without a doubt, a story that will stay with me for a long time to come.

I don't know what else to say but Sylvie is amazing. Again K Langston tackles a sensitive subject and does it perfectly. I would recommend it to everyone who love a tear jerker with a strong heroine, a perfect love story, a bit of suspense, a guy that just makes you swoon and the perfect amount of hot sex.

5.0 out of 5 stars *****5 ‘Salvation Kisses’ STARS***** 18 February 2017
By Dates With K - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Have you ever wanted something with everything in you, but you let fear talk you out of it? Let fear tell you not to try, don’t rock the boat, you’ll fail? K. Langston’s new release Sylvie is an incredibly raw and real story of a girl and a boy – best friends forever – and their heartbreaking and painful roadmap to forgiveness and love after longing, fear and the inexperience of youth had put them on another course. I was immersed from page one in this beautiful journey of the human heart – past and present.

“Mama says love doesn’t always need a reason, it speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart.”

Sylvie Dawson (h) and Lincoln/Linc Matthews (H) became forever friends one afternoon in grade school. Thick as thieves, these two would grow up intuitively accepting each other and learning all there is to know about each other, always there for one another. As the years pass and feelings grow it’s easy to listen to the little voice telling them not to jeopardize their friendship with romantic entanglement. It wouldn’t be until Sylvie meets another man while starving for affection and belonging, that Linc would realize his mistake in listening to his fears. Sylvie’s inability to tell Linc how she really feels plays right into the attention and affection Dean Winters is paying her. Lost to the novelty of lust and new love it would be years before she realizes her mistake in listening to her fears – letting them lead her away from Linc.

“There are moments that mark our lives. Moments when we realize nothing will ever be the same and time is divided into two parts. Before and after.”

So. Many. Feels. This story is an agonizing yet stunning story of young love unrealized, lost and then regained. The multifaceted characters of Sylvie, Dean and Linc never failed to take my breath away, make me sob or delight me. That feeling of impending heartache and doom killed me as I watched Linc and Sylvie succumb to the fears of ‘what if this doesn’t work’ and turn away from their feelings before they ever took a chance. I felt like I was watching an accident knowing I could do nothing to stop it – eyes wide open waiting for impact unable to look away knowing there’d be carnage. I understood why, they’re both so young and afraid to lose the friendship they have, but as I watched Sylvie fall in love with Dean a piece my heart died and I ached for both Linc and Sylvie knowing this was the beginning of the end – in so many different ways. Add in that Sylvie truly loves Dean in a different but no less important way than Linc and then the complexities of the story starting to unfold through carefully paced flashbacks and I was devastated. The narrative is so purposeful and focused, the feelings are a tangible entity, almost another character in their depth and sentiment; I spent a lot of time grabbing my chest, shaking my head and cursing at my kindle. Sylvie is so lost in life, unsure what she’s supposed to do next, so anxious over the possibility that Linc will never love her. Dean arrives in a perfect storm of Sylvie’s emotions and whether it’s meant to be or not she falls for a broken man that hides his problems all too well – for the time being. The triangle of anger, hurt, love and longing from these three as they push and pull each other apart shows the insecurities, guilt and shame each of them carry in different and harmful ways. Ultimately, Sylvie is not just a second chance love story, it’s a LIFE story. It’s ugly and beautiful and hard to take; tender and romantic and tear-jerking. A story of regretting your choices, not letting the past define your future, learning from your mistakes, forgiving yourself and taking a chance on the biggest gift of all – love…even when you think you don’t deserve it.

“Sometimes, the most important lessons in life are the ones we learn the hard way.”

An evocative love story that seemingly died before it lived only to see that love always prevails if only you have the courage to believe in yourself, it left me euphoric and drunk on the power of a tale I didn’t expect and adored all the more for its raw heartfelt messages. A love hard fought…and won.

“I swear, every time our lips touch I can taste the next sixty years of my life.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Epic Life-Love Story 5 star must read.... 16 February 2017
By Clhudson139 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sylvie is an amazing love story. Full of sadness, grief, friendship, family, lust, love lost, and love found again. I've read nothing else like and probably never will.

I cannot honestly find the words I want to say to do justice to the epic life story of one of the most amazing characters I have ever read. To say this book is life changing would be mild.

It's a honest, moving love story of a young woman who is torn between what her heart wants and what her heart feels is right. Three hearts, three lives, three different pasts. Only one can save her from herself, her guilt, her need to be what her family thinks she needs to be. She just has to let him in.

This story is emotional and heart wrenching at times. It has its highs and lows. It has an amazing love story between two people that were destine to be together, while another is destine to kiss the sun. It deals with subjects that are real. That people deal with on a daily basis but are hidden behind closed doors. K Langston, through Sylvie, brings to light emotional turmoil, love, heartbreak, and healing. Thank you K for sharing Sylvie with us. I know how much she has meant to you. I think you are brave and strong and have a beautiful soul to write this. #youmakemebrave

I fell in love with this story and it's characters from the very first page. It's a story for me that has aspects that hit close to home. I felt myself get wrapped up in the words and emotions that were pulled from me with these amazing words. I wish I could rate it more than five stars because it's more than deserving. Definitely a must read and if your new to K Langston this is the perfect book to start with and to really feel how amazing and mind blowing her writing is.

Emotional. Heartbreaking. Angsty.

Sylvie is messy and unpredictable and downright painful at times. But that's life. It isn't tidy and neat and orderly. It's raw and uncensored and wreaks complete havoc on your emotions and tests your limits. Just like Sylvie. It's true and raw and real. And so darn worth it all to get to that beautiful end. To the tenderness and love.

K. Langston has proven she can write anything with this one.

One click. You won't be disappointed.

Loved Linc so much. His unending love for Sylvie was so endearing. This story will just gut you but it will also make you believe in true love. Well written and makes you feel like you know these characters and are living the story with them. This will be a reread for sure.
