5 Sexy Heels Review 

I have tears running down my face as I am writing this review. I was going to let the book marinate a bit before I wrote something but I figured I'd write this now while I am literally feeling all the emotion this book brought out. I truly believe this series and perhaps this book in particular is a true view into the author's soul. Gavin's heartache is palpable throughout the book. Some days I ask myself why certain people have to go through so much horrible stuff and for some reason, this story tells me...you sometimes need to go through all of this to get to the other side, a much better side. Everything Gavin has gone through, everything his grandmother and grandfather went through and how they lived their lives, even Sami and Javon's personal stories bring to light that there IS light at the end of some difficult, troubling tunnels, that there is beauty in the world even when in a certain space and time it feels so grey. He shows the ability that between love and humor, there are people there who will always care and worry about you, who will push you however they have to in order to get the best out of you. BT has written a book (and series) that, while difficult to read, understand and fathom, is a true testament to the resilience that people must have to live with and through depression. I am in awe of this story and BT's ability to draw out so much emotion in a book that may have started out as a fun story -- 30 dates in 30 days. What he has conceived and completed is a labor of love and in the end...a beautiful love story. This deserves so much more than 5 stars!!

30 dates in 30 days. That is the basic premise of this book. Swipe left if you aren't interested, swipe right if you are. It would seem to be fluffy filler wouldn't it? But nothing could be further from the truth. What starts out as a bet, a challenge...could end up being one of the most difficult, eye-opening, revealing and possibly earth shattering experiences of Gavin's life. His friendships with his closest friends, his relationships with his family and his past intimate relationships will all come into question and all be dissected in what I believe will be one of the best journey's in Gavin's life. We see bits and pieces of the author in this book, some we have known, some we may only have guessed but what I found was a trip into today's reality in the dating world. There is a lot of really great, heartwarming, and funny dialogue and every single character has a place in the book and in Gavin's world, if only to teach us all a lesson. BT delves into the human condition and the true difficulties of depression. I am swiping right and waiting patiently for the next book!



Thirty Days - Part Two (A Swipedate Novella)
Author: BT Urruela
Release Date: May 9, 2017

BLURB

A week into his thirty day challenge, Gavin has unexpectedly found himself interested in two women he's met through the SwipeDate app. As he continues with his best friend Bobby's twenty-five thousand dollar proposition, he finds himself drawn to both Sami and Megan, each unique and intriguing in her own way. While interest grows with the two of them, he's becoming increasingly annoyed by the daily first dates, and the disruption they've brought to his life.

Despite the annoyance, Gavin finally sees progress in his recovery from mental illness and discovers a hope he hasn't felt in years. An unexpected run-in with his past will test this newfound hope and threaten to crush the foundation he's worked so hard to build. Can Gavin find the balance he yearns for, and a woman to love, while the circumstances he's struggling with are still so fragile and raw?

What to say about this book.......when authors use a story like this and allow us even a small view into their minds, hearts and soul, you sit up and take notice. Gavin's challenge to date 30 women in thirty days begins to take it's toll on his mind and his heart. He begins to learn so much more about himself and we as readers begin to learn so much more about what makes Gavin tick. He finds himself enthralled by not one but two women, but in order to win the challenge he must continue to date random women each day. While he knows he should be honest with these two, he chooses not to. Will this decision come back to haunt him? His interactions with Bobby, his therapist, Megan, his grandmother, Sami and yes even the dreaded ex are funny, heartwarming, uplifting, frustrating and completely enlightening. Will Gavin learn to let go of the past and move forward with his life? Or will his mental illness continue to derail all of his relationships? Only time will tell. B.T. Urruela has written a story that is a window into his mind, heart and soul. I see so much of the author in this book and can't wait to find out what happens next. #suebaru
