I received an ARC from the author Renea Porter in exchange for an honest opinion. This is mismousey’s very honest of her book “SUNK”.
I am very honored to have received – and to have been asked to read to review her book. I would like to take the time to say “Thank you very much Ms. Porter for allowing me the honor of reading her amazing book.”
Ms. Porter is a writer that everyone wants to become. An author who can write with true emotion –devotion- she is able to express her characters desires so easily. Once she starts putting her pen to paper her expression begins and you are able to see how much she loves the story. Once Ms. Porter has started creating a story – she pours all her emotion into and as the reader opens the book. We are able to see how much love and devotion not only to her readers but also to her creation.
Ms. Porter has a gift of magic. One where she can weave a story out of thin air. Take and turn the lives of two people who are hurting so bad from losses. That they feel like they have SUNK so far and cannot return from it. She creates her characters right before your eyes – gives them so much detail and description. You can picture them standing right before acting and speaking. The scenes have so much detail, description and meat in them. Ms. Porter has you feeling loss that Raine is going through. It is so touching – your emotions as you read this story are all over the place. One moment you will find yourself happy- the next sad- then angry-happy again. You never know what to expect as you read. She truly does weave magic within the pages of the book.

“So tell me, Raine. Did you only accept my date because you were caught in a compromising position last night, or were you being genuine?”

Oh dear. “A little of both.” I arch my eyebrow.
He chuckles. Is that good or bad?
“Well, I take that answer then. Okay, well, I better get going. You probably have work tomorrow.”
“I do. I really enjoyed our date, though.”
“Me too. Is it okay to call you, tomorrow perhaps?”
“I’d like that.” I smile.
I walk Sly to the door, and before I open it, I feel him gripping my waist, tugging it toward his hard body. I take a few steps back from him, because I know what’s about to happen, and I’m not sure I’m ready for it. I have to be honest with him. “Sly, you don’t want this. I’ve lost my only child, and my husband left me for another woman. I’m broken. My heart is no longer whole.”
My words don’t seem to affect him as he makes his way back to me, like a predator going after his prey. This time, I don’t move


Renea has always had her nose inside of a book ever since she could remember. She has wrote ever since she was young enough to write, never showing anyone what she was writing. Initially she started writing Coming Back to You without intending to publish, but her hubby of 15 years encouraged her to publish it. And she did. She couldn’t imagine never writing. Its in her blood.
Her mind is always wondering, plotting and full of ideas. Even her hubs questions her sanity sometimes, because she well her characters are real. They feel real.
