Into the Nothing by BT Urruela - Release Blitz and My Review!

Title: Into the Nothing
Series: Broken Outlaw #1
Author: BT Urruela
Release Date: June 21, 2016
Xander Evans has been on the road for many years. Never settling. Always moving from one place to another, unable to let go of his past. He lived a tragic childhood, spending most of those years in foster care. He's never felt like he's had a home. That is until he stops in the small town of Truman Valley, Missouri, where he meets a woman who will change everything he's ever known.
Paige Watson has it all. A loving family, beautiful home, and a great career. The only thing she's missing....is love. After escaping an abusive relationship, she opens her heart up to a stranger. He is unlike any man she's ever met. He came into her life and turned it completely upside down. Everything is perfect. That is, until one fateful night. 
A night that would tear the Watson family apart, never to be put back together again. 
A night that would send Xander away to prison for life.

MY REVIEW: For being this authors first solo book, he hit it out of the ballpark. When I first read the blurb I was rubbing my hands together with glee and knew I had to read this book. 

Xander had one jacked up childhood. He didn't like to talk about it, said he was over it but deep down he wasn't. It helped mold who he was as an adult. He's a strong man with music in his soul. He's sexy and a sweet talker with a little bit of shyness thrown in. He stands up for what he thinks is right. 

Paige is a strong woman who hasn't had it all hearts and flowers in her personal life. She pushes Xander to be a better person and to fulfill one of his items on his bucket list. Her family interactions are filled with warmth and love. Her mom is such a huggable person, she's filled with love and happiness and wants the best for her family.

I liked how the story wasn't insta-love. You get to watch the connection begin and strengthen between them. 

I will say that this book has twists and turns I didn't see coming. This book will keep you enthralled from the very first page to the last. I was shocked at one point in this book. You'll need to read it and see if you were shocked as I was.
"He was over here for like five hours last night drinking and talking with Dad. You think I like him? My dad's in love. And the way he didn’t hesitate to put Benji in his place, I just think Dad’s got a good feeling about him."
"Shit, I've got a good feeling about him too... and it's in my panties." She laughs and motions toward her crotch. "If I had been working and saw him do that to Benji's fat ass, I would've let him fuck me right on top of the bar…and I would’ve let everyone watch."
"I'm serious. Fuck it!”
"You're ridiculous."
"Paige, don't tell me you didn't notice that anaconda stuffed into his jeans?"
"What?! What the fuck are you talking about? Anaconda? I wasn't looking at his damn jeans." I laugh, finding it hard to not to love this girl who has become like a sister to me. She's the craziest bitch I know, but she's got my back no matter what. She's had it since day one.
"Why wouldn’t you look at his jeans? That’s where his dick is!”
