Sacred by Elana K Arnold, Blog Tour

Welcome To Best Book's stop on this tour.  we have today a spotlight, review and a awesome giveaway. this book is amazing, everyone needs to read it :)

ELANA K. ARNOLD completed her M.A. in Creative Writing/Fiction at the University of California, Davis. She grew up in Southern California, where she was lucky enough to have her own horse--a gorgeous mare named Rainbow--and a family who let her read as many books as she wanted. She lives in Long Beach, California, with her husband, two children, and a menagerie of animals. She is represented by Rubin Pfeffer of the East/West Literary Agency. Sacred is her debut novel.



Growing up on Catalina Island, off the California coast, Scarlett Wenderoth has led a fairly isolated life. After her brother dies, her isolation deepens as she withdraws into herself, shutting out her friends and boyfriend. Her parents, shattered by their own sorrow, fail to notice Scarlett's pain and sudden alarming thinness. Scarlett finds pleasure only on her horse, escaping to the heart of the island on long, solitary rides. One day, as she races around a bend, Scarlett is startled by a boy who raises his hand in warning and says one word: "Stop."

The boy—intense, beautiful—is Will Cohen, a newcomer to the island. For reasons he can't or won't explain, he's drawn to Scarlett and feels compelled to keep her safe. To keep her from wasting away. His meddling irritates Scarlett, though she can't deny her attraction to him. As their relationship blossoms into love, Scarlett's body slowly awakens at Will's touch. But just when her grief begins to ebb, she makes a startling discovery about Will, a discovery he's been grappling with himself. A discovery that threatens to force them apart. And if it does, Scarlett fears she will unravel all over again.


First off thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This book was full of so many emotions,  grief from the brother dying,  laughter from the friend lily’s antics.  It was an emotional rollercoaster ride and I loved every minute of this book.

The main character scarlett is coming to turns with her brothers death and her family feeling like they are falling apart.  The only time she feels alive is when she is with her horse. Then she meets will and its an instant attraction.  Things happen from there,  how he is always there when she needs him,  when he reveals why he is there when she needs him, it opens up a whole new beginning for scarlett. 
Will is a complete swoon worthy character, loved reading about him and his background.
Lily, scarlett’s best friend is a tornado, she is a bubbly character, doesn’t conform to anything, loved reading her bits, she was a riot .

The world building and the voice in this book really drew me in, the author managed to write her book with the right amount of description,  I felt as if I was really there living it with scarlett.
Read it in one sitting it was that good, too hard to put down.

This is a wonderful debut novel from the author and I cant wait to read sacred’s sequel splendor when it comes out this year. 

If you haven’t picked up this book, what are you waiting for?  Go out and buy it

Splendor is the sequel to Sacred and i already know its going to be amazing, cant wait to see where the series goes next
