Author Spotlight: Into the Nothing - BT Urruela

 Into the Nothing
 by BT Urruela


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 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.


Barnes & Noble:


I literally just finished reading Into the Nothing and I rushed downstairs to put my thoughts down for my review because holy space balls batman, this book….this book is everything.  My soul hurts; BT Urruela broke me with this one.  The suspense is so subtle that you’re on the edge of your seat with a knot in your stomach without even realizing it.  When the author said it is not your normal happily ever after, he was spot on.  This isn’t your normal romance and if that’s what you’re expecting, you’re in for a shock. 

I loved that it was so character driven and that the characters were so real.  None of them felt “perfect.”  They each had their own flaws and insecurities which made them all the more relatable.  I had characters I loved, characters I hated and ones that I just found creepy.  Xander definitely tugged on my heart strings the most. 

Even with the foreshadowing, when the tragedy struck, it caught me off guard.  And from then on, it was nail biting tension for me.  I needed to know the who dunnit.  I thought I knew; I was sooo sure I had it down.  I was wrong.  The twist was brilliant.  I cannot wait to read the next book.  I want it now. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
