The Beginning of the End by R. Holmes
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: May 22, 2020
An angst filled second chance romance about a woman scorned by her love and a man who gave up his life for the one he loved.
This was my first R. Holmes book and I am in love with everything this story is.
Ambery and Grey’s story was the best kinda heart wrenching, angsty and emotional story and I didn’t know I needed it so much.
Grey is such an amazing father. I just couldn’t help but adore him with his daughter. These two were so cute and my heart was swooning so much. He is exactly the kind of father I need to see more of in stories. Also, he is definitely the best kinda person to fall in love with.
I loved Ambrey for getting out of the situation with her parents. She was so badass for that. But when I found out the reason why she left, I was so annoyed with her. I think that’s the only instance where I wanted to shake her and scream at her face.
This story is has amazing characters with a very surprising twist and I honestly devoured the book. It’s right to say that I am a R. Holmes follower now and I can’t wait to see what’s next from her.

My last name was royalty in New Orleans, at least, I guess to those who mattered. But to me…my last name was a curse.
High society. Expectations. Old money. Politics. Everything I despised.
If only they could see what happened behind those high-society closed doors. The same doors my daddy paid a lot of money to keep closed.
Deceit. Destruction. Bribery. You name it, my family was guilty of it.
My father’s throne was built on lies. Our family was the epitome of faux royalty.
Then, I fell in love and oh what a fool I was. I was just a pawn in my father’s game. And to use the man who claimed to love me…
Five years ago, I walked away, and left my father to his riches.
And that man who left me in broken, jagged pieces?
Well, what goes around, comes around.
Four years in a prison cell changes a man.
I spent those four years fighting to survive.
When I emerged, I was nothing like the man who had walked through those cell doors all those years ago.
I overcame things that I never imagined I’d be faced with..
The one person who promised to never leave, did.
The life I thought I knew, gone.
The future I once thought I had, up in smoke.
Like so many things in my life, my story and my future were stolen from me.
Sure, it’s made up of the usual parts…a beginning and an end. But just like every story, there’s a hero, there’s the villain…and then there’s me.
And this is the beginning of the end.
