    3.5 stars Into the Nothing is a romance that leans towards the suspenseful mysterious side The prologue of the book pulled me in straight away Our hero is currently serving time for a crime he did not commit After that prologue, we go back in time a few years to see what happened to put him in this position that changed his life forever I won t talk too much about the story, I ll let you read it for yourself but I will say that BT s writing is strong The story was intriguing It had parts that were sexy and sweet, and other parts that were mysterious and gritty I thought the male POV was written perfectly There was a lot about this story I liked, but I didn t connect to Paige as I wished I would That was probably the thing I had trouble with the most I find it so hard to love a book when I never click with one of the main characters.The story started as a sweet romance with some fun moments You could see that Xander and Paige both had some things in their past that made them a little broken, but they were both starting to open up about themselves The story continues and things start to get a little crazy Here comes the suspenseful parts of the story My heart broke for both Xander and Paige and the situation they were both put in My mind was racing as I tried to figure out what really happened As I was really starting to get into the story towards the end, I felt like it wrapped up so quickly my head was spinning I do have to point out that one of the big reveals at the end totally shocked me That who done it moment I thought I had figured out yeah, I was totally wrong I love it when a book surprises me There were parts of this story I loved, and other parts that were a miss for me, but overall I think it was a good read and I m looking forward to reading of BT s works in the future I think his writing is wonderful and he has a ton of potential I m especially excited to read A Lover s Lament as I ve only heard wonderful things about it I would recommend this to those of you that like romantic suspense and a strong male POV I give it a solid 3.5 stars.

    3 STARS For his first solo venture B.T Urruela presented a mystery type story told in dual povs which is a standalone for this new series I found the plot interesting yet overall a bit messy I do have to point out the fisting teaser is totally out of context and was taken from a conversation at a bar in case readers were turned off by it In fact the couple doesn t even sleep together until after the halfway portion of the story and no such thing occurs This story is of a mystery and suspense feel as it starts with the hero wrongly imprisoned and then we are gifted the story of how Xander came to work for the Watson family who owns a vineyard and falls for their daughter, Paige Family is foreign to me Always has been When I get a glimpse of it, it s hard to let go The love aspect of the story was well paced and I did find it indeed believable The reveals however fell on the predictable side and the ending was very rushed The story overall could have been fine tuned because overall it felt scattered than anything else Still I thought the concept and my interest didn t wane so three star fill for this debut.

    Into the Nothing is BT Urruela s debut novel and I am happy to say he is not just a pretty face His writing is raw, emotional and real After reading the blurb I thought I had a pretty good idea of how this story would go, but BT s approach was new and fresh.Xander is new in town when he meets the Watson family The Watsons appear to be the perfect family and are happy to take in the man who protected their only daughter Paige and Xander quickly develop a relationship, but it didn t feel rushed Their connection developed over time and felt genuine Here is the part I wasn t expecting, we know Xander goes to prison for life We even see in the prologue he is in prison, so while I was expecting us to see that immediately we actually get to see the beginning events in great detail It actually takes a good part of the story before we see what events actually took place This story is sweet and sexy, but also suspenseful I did guess the twist pretty quickly, but I think that s actually very telling of BT s writing and how he portrayed each character My only issue with the story was the female POV, she didn t feel like a female to me She felt masculine and brash, but maybe that was in the intent Unfortunately it led to me not connecting to her like I hope to with my characters ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review

    ARC received from author via Southern Belle PR as part of blog tour Well, well, well Not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn t it that s a good thing, I swear just bear with meBefore anything else, this may not have anything to do with the book, but I do want to give a shout out to BT I ve been stalking, I mean following him, on various social media platform and I couldn t be impressed at the things he s accomplished, never mind his looks What Have you seen him g He s very engaging and I always enjoy perusing his SM accounts, just saying Even though I own a copy, I haven t had the opportunity to read A Lover s Lament, which he co wrote with another author, but this one is his first solo attempt For his first solo write, I say not bad The opening of the story grabs you immediately, that s for sure.Xander has quite the past, tragic at that He was full of secrets, a transient at heart, and Paige s town just happened to be one of the ones he was passing thru He met Paige and her dad by fluke, and what was meant to be temporary ended up not being so Paige and her family took him in, feelings starting to grow until that fateful night, that is I really really wanted to love this It s got the elements I usually enjoy in my romance reads Just hear me out I ll talk about the things that didn t work for me BUT there are definitely things that worked for meWhere I may have had some issue is the pacing While I appreciated all the details, which allowed for relationship building, it felt like it made the pace quite sluggish It made me wonder if the way the timeline was laid out got me impatient, especially with such a captivating start And because I couldn t quite match the pace, I admit it did affect how I felt about the characters As well fleshed out the MCs were, there was a bit of detachment that I couldn t help but feel Consequently, I questioned some of their actions and the maturity of some of their decisions, and as much as I m one for lots of dialogues, some felt superfluous Then, on the other hand, it felt like too many things were crammed at the end Things that I felt could ve been expounded on to make for a dramatic impact Mind you, the ending has quite an impact as it is.BUT, BUT, BUT Having said all that, while the execution was not necessarily on point in my mind, the story itself is quite unique and definitely not predictable I had no idea where BT was taking these characters There was foreshadowing that was handled deftly There were really heavy issues tackled, issues that BT did not appear to shy away from and that s quite gutsy And while I did not quite warm up to the female characters including Paige, the male characters were fascinating and engaging, which included Irish and Twitch in addition to Xander Xander really was the highlight of this book He s flawed, made bad decisions, and has quite a bit of issues but in the end, he s as stand up as stand up get BT also didn t give me a traditional ending, which left room for some contemplation and speculation, which I appreciated I think BT could have even taken this onto the darker side, but I understand a contemporary approach will widen his market That s just me And I sincerely believe that in time, BT will only get better as he hones his craft So like I said, for his first solo write, not bad, not bad at all

    Fantastic Debut, Solo Novel Before I begin my review, I would just like to note that I did in fact beta read this book for this author My review is of my thoughts and feelings during the entire process Family is foreign to me Always has been When I get a glimpse of it, it s hard to let go The first few notes themselves have me in a trance They re beautiful and heartbreaking and moving all rolled into one He transitions from to string to string and strums with the ease and fluidity of a pro, and it s only a matter of seconds before my hands fall to my sides I was as lost in the music as he was The beauty in his voice, the depth of his words, it overwhelms me He overwhelms me Into the Nothing is the debut solo novel of author B.T Urruela My first thoughts upon finishing this book was what did I just read I was floored I was shocked This book took me on one wild and crazy ride with an ending I did not see coming.Into the Nothing is well written and grabs you from the very beginning You will have your eyes glued to the pages to find out what will happen next As you go deeper into the story, you won t be able to put it down.One of the things I loved about Into the Nothing is that the story is not as romance focused Into the Nothing is character and plot driven The reader is really given a chance to get to know the characters and experience the story as if they are standing in the book right along with them I also really liked how B.T really focused on the family aspect and the overall way he wrote Paige s family Her family was written in a way that made them easy to connect with and made them feel like real people and not just characters in a story And of course, I can t forget about Brandi She made me laugh so many times Everyone and I mean everyone needs a Brandi in their life She is not only a terrific friend, but I loved how she always told you just how things were and how she wasn t afraid to speak her mind.Now, you might be wondering, is there romance Yes, there is some But, it s of a slow burning romance, instead of an in your face romance And if you know me, you know that I love my romance That being said, with this story, the slow burn worked well You really got to see Paige and Xander get to know one another and be friends, before jumping into something And even though Paige and Xander s romantic relationship was a slow burn, I am happy to tell you that there are some steamy, sexy moments.Into the Nothing is such an exciting read I found it refreshing and loved that it is not a traditional love story It s a story that will have you laughing your ass off one minute and glued to the pages the next It is a story that is filled with mystery and intrigue It will have you on the edge of your seat, trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together And just when you think you ve got it all figured out, another twist will be thrown in and it will completely blow you away.B.T Urruela took a lot of risks with Into the Nothing and I could not be pleased with the way things turned out I am so pleased that B.T took a chance and wrote the book that he wanted to write He gave us a story that isn t a traditional love story and doesn t have the perfect cookie cutter ending But, the ending he gave us, not only gave us hope, but left us begging for .

    Into the Nothing is the story of Xander Evans and Paige Watson Two strangers who met one night, a night that would change both of their lives forever Xander is a nomad of sorts, no family to be had, no place to call home he is just passing through when he comes to the rescue of Paige and a man who is a little too handsy Paige s father invites Xander into his home and offers him a job, leaving Paige and Xander to face their chemistry head on Somehow perfect ended up tragic and Xander is sitting in a prison cell, left only with the thoughts of the girl who stole his heart.ITN begins with a glimpse of present day Xander, locked away for a crime he didn t commit As we go back to the night when he first meets Paige and the Watson family, we are taken along for the journey as these two fall in love and experience everything being torn from their arms I have not yet read BT s co authored book although it is sitting on my Kindle , so this was my first glimpse into what he d have to offer in the romance world I have to say, for a first book, this was a fantastic start There were some minor bumps in the road and I think some emotional moments that were not completely used at full capacity, but I did LOVE IT I found it easy to fall in love with Xander and I really liked Paige I didn t mind that she was a little tomboyish I think it actually fit her character perfectly Overall, I enjoyed this story and I will continue on with the rest of the series without hesitation.I struggle with finding male authors that I can first, believe are actual men There are far too many out there that use the pen name of a man in order to create a frenzy and I really need to find some connection with an author, and trust is key to that experience Getting a chance to read a book from a male s perspective is something that I enjoy as a reader I like the differences in how the scenes play out I love that the men get a manly tone So finding BT in the midst of all these authors is really a great thing.

    Into the Nothing is the first solo project by B.T Urruela, and I enjoyed Xander s story Unless you ve grown up in a thriving metropolis like New York City, you can probably relate to Paige and Xander There is nothing quite as unique as the dynamics of small town life Each small town has their own Paige and her family including the town took care of their own until the unspeakable happened Into the Nothing is a story of tragedy, heartache, faith and overcoming I didn t find this to be a cookie cutter romance novel but something totally different from what I normally read Though I wasn t able to connect to the characters in a way I had hoped, the words captivated me and kept me interested Heather, 3 stars
