RELEASE DAY: Release by Dylan Allen

Title: Release
Series: A Symbols of Love Novel
Author: Dylan Allen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 28, 2018

I’m here for pleasure.

And in paradise, I don’t have a past. I don’t have pain, my secrets don't haunt me and I can be anyone I want 

He’s here for business.

Harry's intoxicatingly handsome, rich, and also the biggest jerk I've ever met. So, it's inconvenient that sparks fly every time our eyes meet.

Indulging in an affair wasn't on my agenda.

But fate isn't a mistress to our intentions; And what starts as a strike of lightening on a moonlit beach ignites a fire between us that will span continents. 

Meeting again in the unlikeliest of circumstances feels written in the heavens.

And I'll need the courage of the gods to tell him the truth.

They say the truth will set you free... but what if it destroys you first?

Grab your tissues now! You are going to need them!

Release was one of the best and soul-filling book that I have ever read. At this point, I’ve read it 4 times. Dylan Allen has touched a place in my heart with Lilly’s story. As it is, I’ve been writing my review for nearly 3 months now and every time I start, I write a few sentences just to stop again. No matter what I write here... there is no way for me to eloquently write what Allen’s words have done to my heart, to my soul, and the way I think of my life and what all I have been through. Allen has written a story that is going to resonate within too many hearts. It’s a story that is so close to so many people’s truth that it broke me a bit.

The language and imagery used throughout Release is so vivid, so full that you can see the beach, feel the sand, and smell the ocean. Allen created a scene in my head with her chapters. I can see and feel the current between Harry and Lilly, the pull, even though they both want to dislike each other at several points in the beginning. I know it will change and I already feel the tension, the suspense leading up to their combustible release.

The first intimate scene was insanely hot!!! Like I can’t even tell you how happy my husband was after that scene!! Their dirty talking intimacy was perfect for what was between them. Harry and Lilly deserve this intense, this strong, this bigger then them relationship. They’ve both been through so much that having a home in each other’s arms is what gives them the strength they need to live.

Harry is one of the most amazing book boyfriends ever. Good Lord he’s so flipping sweet and thoughtful! I just adore how well he takes care of Lilly after just barely a week together. He’s a total gentleman! The build-up of Lilly and Harry meeting up is killing me! Having them keep referencing Harry makes me giggle profusely. I can feel the tension building up for them to reconnect again after she just left without a proper goodbye.

Even though we have closure on the dad/family problem, I was so happy that we were able to see everyone again! It feels like your meeting with long lost friends. My heart breaks for Lilly and how she’s distances herself from her family. It’s a situation that I can completely relate too.

Oh my lanta!!! I can’t even handle you, Dylan Allen!!! That car ride has to be the funniest thing I’ve read in a long time!! Really?!? I know this road like a house on fire!?!? Bahaha!!! Where do you come up with this? lol I just, I just can’t!! You’ve killed me!

Allen took me on a roller coaster ride. Ugh, that father and daughter dance broke me. I literally have tears pouring down my face. You’ve broke my heart :( I laughed throughout this book. I cried throughout this story... no crying isn’t a strong enough word... I sobbed throughout, absolutely sobbed. I wish I had the words to tell you all the effect this book had on me. I can’t recommend Release Enough. Read it. Love it. Be consumed by the words.…

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

“Dylan Allen is fearless in her writing, gutting you with the prologue giving you every bit of Lilly's story with a raw and flawless prose so you feel like you're right there with her: the pain, the shame and the joy of self-rediscovery. Harry goes down as one of my favorite book boyfriends ever” - Bestselling author Stephanie Rose

“Wow. Release grabs your heart from the very first sentence and doesn't let go.” - Goodreads Reviewer

“Your words grabbed me by the heart on page one. Release is sexy, evocative, and unputdownable!” - New York Times Bestselling Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills

“If there were 10 stars available to give, that still wouldn't be enough for this book! I'm in love with this story” - Goodreads Reviewer

“Wonderful story. Strong message, strong characters... I’m in awe. My heart almost couldn’t handle it all and was about to burst, I fell in love with Lilly and Harry right along with them.” - Goodreads Reviewer

Dylan Allen is a Texas girl with a serious case of wanderlust.

A self-proclaimed happily ever junkie, she loves creating stories where her characters chase their own happy endings.

When she isn’t writing or reading, eating or cooking, she and her family are planning their next adventure.
