Publisher's Summary

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 listeners. If you need a trigger warning, this may not be the book for you.

Rollar Coaster of emotions!

Love this book!! This story is so full of emotions! I was cringing, I was crying, I was laughing, and I was just in love with Tade and Reagan! I was so caught up between the audio and reading when I couldn't listen that I forgot that I had no clue who the past was really referring to! It was seamless!. When the past and present meet, I cried! Tears while listening at work. It was amazing to be that pulled in by a story and the narration that you become part of! I love Terri E. Laine and can't wait to dive into Captivated by Him in December!

I didn't see this book coming! I went in blind and was pleasantly surprised that this book has a little sexy, a little sweet, a little suspense and a some excitement too! I love a book that has it all. The characters are both a little protective of their secrets & their hearts which made listening to them tear down each others wall even better. I also really liked the past and present scenes because you really get invested in the characters by knowing so much about them and the way it's written you spend most of the book wondering who's past your getting a glimpse at. Very good book and a first for me by this author but I will be adding her to my list for sure!

The narration was perfect! I love Erin Mallon so anything with her narrating gets extra point from me. She always hits all of the emotions and makes me feel like i'm there while the story is happening and Jason Clarke really did a great job being Tade to life!

when dark is so good.

This book. I had to let og sink in a few days before I could even put my thoughts into words.
last time I listened to a Terri book I started to cry in a supermarked. So I was having pretty high expectations.
And when Terri gives me a warning and says it is a book that pushes at some Peoples limets. I knew it would be good. And damn it didnt disapoint me at any point. It is like it is two books in one. the one book is this sweet lovely college romance about sweet love between two young people that have a few obsticels. some family issues and some really shady hidden pasts. The other book in this book is so dark. So dirty. So sad and terrible it makes you cry because even as this is just a book. You know that for some sad sad lifestorys. This is everyday life. This book makes it crawl up your back. makes you want to hug your kids one more time. And pray for the world to become a Better place for everybody.
But god damn Terri you are brilliant at what you do. The way you write, the flow in your words. You make magic. I bow at your feet and your talent. This is real art.
