Book Review - Next August by Kelly Moore & Giveaway


About Kelly Moore


Hi my name is Kelly Moore and I am Southern girl raised in Florida. I am a registered nurse actually an ICU traveling nurse, wife, mother of two children and I have three grandchildren. I have always been an avid reader and kept journals. Until Broken Pieces, I never had the courage to attempt an erotic romance book and submit it for publishing. I tend to embrace the brokenness in all of us. It makes us who we are. I love to see people come out strong and win against past pains.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing the story…….

Review by Anniek

On the outside August has it all. He is handsome and wealthy and he has several homes and great cars. He is successful in everything he does. Not many people know the grief that August has to deal with on the inside. Losing his mother in a car accident left him and his father broken. August's father also hurt other people in that same accident, but managed to walk away from any legal obligations. When August found out he was determined to pay the dues for the wrongs his father did. August doesn't let anyone come close when it comes to a romantic relationship. He feels that he is too damaged to be the person a woman needs. That is until he meets Nashville.

Nashville is a nurse and a country girl at heart. She works long hours and sends as much money as she can to her parents. Her parents own a ranch in Nashville and are struggling to keep up with all the bills. Nash lives together with her best friend Anna, who is also a nurse. They love to go rock climbing together. At the top of a climbed rock Nash meets August. Nash is instantly drawn to him and when August hurts his hand on the way down she doesn't hesitate to tell him to go to the hospital, so Nash can take care of him.

August is such a sweet and kind man and he gives more than he takes. He spends a lot of money to make the lives of other people better. He feels guilty about the accident which killed his mother. Because of his guilt he still takes care of his father who is in a catatonic state after a stroke. August can be stubborn, dominant and controlling, but he needs this for his own survival. He is a person I instantly loved and who captured my heart with his kindness.

Nash has always been a good daughter to her parents. She works hard and is loyal. Nash is also funny and feisty. August's millions don't faze her. She is her own person and manages to take care of herself really well. I loved the fact that Nash didn't let August dominate her. She isn't a pushover and demands to be treated well. Nash has a good heart and is willing to do what needs to be done to save the people she loves.

Next August is an amazing story about grief, love and finding the strength to let people in again. Kelly Moore never lets you down with her strong and deep characters. August is an Alpha male who finds his equal in Nash. They truly complete each other. This story captivated me from the beginning. Kelly Moore's writing style flows so naturally that I flew through the pages. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. Next August is an emotional read with so much love, I'll remember this story for a very long time.

  1. Love the cover, Kelly. Also curious about a 'traveling ICU nurse' - Do you retrieve people from holiday accident/illness? Exciting.

    1. Thank you, this is my favorite cover. As a traveling nurse, I take 13 week assignments at hospitals around the US. It can be very exciting. I've made lots of memories and friends along the way.

  5. Now if I'm not a last-day, 11.5th-hour commenter, so help me...
    But Ms. Kelly Moore. It seems like only yesterday-- okay, last week at MOST-- that you blessed us with "Piece by Piece." But then what did I see this morning? You've dropped a paperback "Beyoncé." You remember that album, right? Boom, overnight, we had "Drunk In Love." And "Partition"! *fans self*
    ...Ohh, my goodness. I want to savor this book, and never let it end.
    Thank you. Thank you x10.

    1. You are correct, it was only a few weeks ago that Piece by Piece came out. I have been a busy girl. Actually, Next August had been in my head for months, so writing it didn't take me near as long as Piece by Piece. It is my favorite story that I have written. I have already had requests to continue August and Nash's story. Thank you for participating.

    1. I don't have a writing style per say. I usually have at least two plots running around in my head. I just sit down and write. If I get stuck, I take a hike in the mountains or do something that inspires me and I usually work it out.
