Stronger by Misy Provencher

Two men are vying for a place in Lydia Strong's life. Desmond has solid ties from her distant past, while Aiden is only concerned about being her future. But right now, party-girl Lydia has lost herself in a shot glass and dozens of one night stands. Barely functioning as an alcoholic and sexual addict, she's forgotten her own worth and is plummeting toward the rock bottom of her life.

While Des and Aiden compete to create her future, Lydia realizes she's got to be stronger than she's ever been, to fight her addictions and choose the life that she wants now. She must find herself again, before the wrong man walks away.

I fell in love with Misty Provencher when I read her YA Cornerstone Series. I usually tend to be obsessed over an author once I find their writing style to capture and hold my attention, Misty is one of these authors. Though I love a good paranormal book, I love reading about issues that people face on a daily basis, especially topics that some might think are controversial. Misty tackles a few of these topics in Stronger and she does it with beautiful grace, that no one can ignore the messages behind the words.

Lydia Strong married young and when her husband Desmond decides he wants a better life, he meets another woman. So to block all that out she drinks and brings home a different guy every night. Until Aiden moves into her apartment building. He notices her and she feels things for him that she hasn't felt since she met Desmond. Aiden notices her addictions, he was there once, and he wants to help her.  The thing is you cant help someone unless they want the help. So that leaves the question... does Lydia want the help?  What happens when Desmond  finds out about Aiden? Can Lydia survive the present to have a future with Aiden?

I was in complete Devour mode as soon as I started this book and stayed awake until it was finished. Misty has a way of capturing my attention, breaking my heart, and fixing it all over again by letting me be apart of an epic love story. If you haven't read this book, you need to drop what you are doing and grab it now. You won't be the same after you've read it and you definitely won't be disappointed. Stronger by Misty Provencher surprised me in so many good ways! I loved her cornerstone series so I was hoping for great things from this book and I wasn't disappointed. This book is filled with such dark, strong emotions I couldn't stop. Lydia's life isn't what she thought it would be. She's married to her high school love, but he's also married to another woman. She's addicted to drinking and drugs and sex. I think her salvation comes in the form of her neighbor, Aidan, who has been through those demons. You ask why is she married to an asshole? You'll have to read to find out. Aidan.... Wow more of him!! He shows Lydia the life she can have. As a stronger person. Meeting her friends in AA and having so many people in her life she didn't think she'd have. She comes out on top!! Take this trip with her and Misty! I want more!!


Once a high school drop out and runaway, Misty Provencher became a college grad, and is now a full-time novelist with a close knit family. She doesn't do labels well. While she can ride a motorcycle, knows how to Karate chop, and has learned enough French, Spanish, and Sign Language to get herself slapped, Misty's life is the ruse she uses to connect with people. She is totally enchanted with them and spends her days trying to translate the soul bouquet of her muses into words.
