Fading Into Nothing by Kelly Moore - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads
Review by Anniek

Maggie knows what it feels like to fade into nothing. She's living together with her brother Lip in their rundown apartment. Their mother passed away as the result of an overdose and their father is in prison, so they only have each other. Maggie and Lip have very few possessions and try to survive day by day. They seek an escape of their constant struggles in drugs. All they want is relief from the pain and heartache. Maggie knows that this lifestyle can't continue and tries to convince her brother that they're cut out for bigger things. Can they find a way to overcome their addiction and become who they were once destined to be?

Maggie and Lip have been through so much together. They depend on each other and didn't get the tools from their parents to grow up differently. To avoid their true feelings they seek refuge in the only thing they know and have seen in their young lives. Maggie wants to get high just one last time, but it all goes wrong. When she wakes up she remembers nothing about the way her life was before but she still has scars to prove what she did. Will they be able to rise above their struggles before there's nothing left to save?

Maggie is on her way to a house that she's renting for the summer. She's never been on a train before and when a stranger sits down across from her she's immediately taken by how handsome he is. Will is on his way home to attend the funeral of his brother. He's heartbroken and needs somebody to lean on. Maggie and Will have an instant connection and they know that what they're feeling is very special. Maggie has always been the logical one, but she throws caution to the wind and decides to go with Will. Has she finally found her true destiny?

Fading Into Nothing is a moving story about dealing with addiction, grief and true love. It's a gripping book with lots of surprises. Maggie and Lip are so close and I could feel the desperation about their current situation. My heart wept for these two young people and I wished for them to overcome their issues. Every time I thought I had it al figured out, Kelly Moore managed to blow me away by throwing in an unexpected twist. Her stories are always full of emotion and she addresses a lot of difficult topics, but they never overpower the good. Fading Into Nothing is bittersweet, it moved me to tears, but it also put a big smile on my face. Maggie and Will touch each other's soul on a deeper level and my heart was overflowing with joy for them both. Kelly Moore is one of my favorite authors and I highly recommend any book that she has ever written.


If you love to read about second chances in life and finding true love, Fading Into Nothing would be a great choice.

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.
