I met this amazing and lovely women several years ago when I published my first book. We never met face to face, never talked on the phone or any of the traditional ways a new friendship is formed. We met on facebook. I don't even remember her friended who first but what I do remember was a newby writer (myself) was welcomed with open arms into an alien and foreign world and made to feel at home by one of the sweetest and loving person I have ever known.
We've shared over the years our ups and downs, our highs and lows and I can tell you this woman ALWAYS finds the good in any situation. This past month though has broken her heart. The love of her life passed away unexpectedly and has left her torn and shredded and as you can see she needs our help.

The book kept my attention, all the characters showed promise of being the best of friends and yet no one is perfect and all accepted this.
Very Well Written. Most of the time I forgot I was reading a Book. This tells me a lot about the Author. Karli Rush is an Author to Watch!!
I Highly Recommend this Book!!

I received, Crescent Bound for free by the lovely, Karli Rush. All I can say is, I LOVE this book! I completely fell in love with the characters and I must say, Marc is now a part of my heart. With editing the story will be perfect but for me it did not affect the story. The plot is different from anything I have ever read and I must admit, I laughed, cried, and just fell in love with Marc. Would I recommend this book? YES!!! Not to young readers but definitely to everyone else. Can't wait to read the next book
