~BLOG TOUR~ Still Human by Kerry Heavens


Synopsis from Goodreads
Danny and Liv are back...

Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him because she ran without a word when she saw their future mapped out before her. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her and this time he doesn’t think he can move on.

Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her because he broke her heart in the worst possible way, right when things were falling into place. She knows she will never love anyone like she loves him and this time she doesn’t think she can move on.

They needed a second chance because they just weren’t ready for their first, but when events changed everything between them, they discovered they were just human after all. Now Liv and Danny have to find a way to survive being hurt by each other. 

They doubted, they underestimated and they did believe the worst, but only because they were too young the first time and too vulnerable the second time. But now they have changed and if they are not the same, surely things can only turn out differently?

Ariana's Review
4 1/2 STARS!!!

Men nowadays are in some serious trouble when there are books like Still Human out there. My god!!! Just when I thought Danny couldn't be sweeter and more swoon-worthy, there he goes knocking me off my feet once more. Seriously, Danny is the reason why women like me love to live in the world of books.  I said it once, and i'll say it again.... BACK OFF LADIES!!! Danny is MINE! :) He is seriously just...OMG... I completely melted while reading this book! 

When both Danny and Liv's worlds come crashing down on them, they are each left more broken and vulnerable than ever before. When you lose your soulmate once, it's hard enough to pick yourself back up and piece yourself back together. But when you lose your soulmate twice, is there any way to return from the torment and heartbreak which you endure? 

Still human was a heartbreaking, and yet heartwarming story at the same time. I must admit that I did hate Liv and Danny for a bit in this book, but only because they made me into such a mess of emotions. I wanted to hug them, I wanted to smack them, I wanted to scream on the top of my lungs while shaking them both! I must admit, there were times I got a bit misty eyed as well. If you have not read book 1 (Just human), then do NOT read this book yet! You will miss out on a LOT if you don't read Just Human first, and you def won't understand the dynamics of the characters and story properly in Still Human. I felt like I was able to connect to all the characters in this book, and each played their role perfectly. 

While I would LOVE to get more Danny and Liv, I am fully happy and content with how their story wrapped up in the end, and if it is not continued in another book, I will still be happy. There were no cliffhangers, and no loose ends which needed to be tied up... which I was extremely happy about. Kerry Heavens did a wonderful job with making the reader feel the emotions in which the characters went through, and making you feel as if you were a part of the story.

And OMG the sex!!!! Wow... just wow! It was hot and steamy, without being raunchy. Just another thing to add to the list of what makes Danny so incredible. While there was a LOT of amazing sex in this book, it did not overshadow the story itself. However, it did add the perfect amount of flame to the fire to make it burn brightly. I Highly recommend this book (both books actually) to anyone who enjoys a wonderful love story, with quite a bit of loving!! 

Excerpt

I’m determined to go out tonight, but he’s making it so hard. I turn in his arms and face him. He’s impossible to resist. I gasp as his hand slips inside the delicate lace of my underwear and shudder when his finger brushes my clit. I kiss him, slowly, as his fingers enter me. I know we’re not leaving this room tonight, but I keep up the pretence for a minute longer. While I’m lingering around his ear, I whisper what I wish he could do to me if we weren’t going out to dinner. He moans, turned on by my explicit words, so I continue, telling him what I wish I could do to him. Then, what I say to him turns him on so much it almost gets him there.
I whisper. “Oh, screw it. Use me…don’t hold back, take what you need.”
“Oh God, Liv.” He groans as I sink to kneel at his feet.
I take him in my mouth, running my tongue all the way around him to ease my path. He sighs at first but as I move, his sighs become whispers, the whispers become moans. Then as I begin to accept him deeper and deeper, his hands appear, ready to do what I asked. To use me and take what he needs.
He is never rough, but I love it when he takes control. That first night we were together, it happened by accident, but the effect on both of us was amazing, it’s something he knows I love now and he doesn’t feel bad about it. He forces himself into my mouth, over and over again, while my fingers dig into his thighs. My hands give an indication to him of just how much I can take. Occasionally they twitch up, almost at the point of asking him to stop, but I never do. I can take it, but it drives him crazy, thinking I'm on the verge of begging him to stop.
I make that low throaty moan he loves and he gasps.
“Jesus, Liv.” He hisses. “Touch yourself.”
A thrill goes through me and I willingly oblige, sliding my hand under the soft lace of my underwear. He can’t see, but he knows I’m doing it. I moan to let him know I’ve hit home and he seems to lose control at the thought. Focusing hard on his goal, he uses long, slow strokes. I roll my tongue around him every time he almost withdraws and accept him back as deep as possible each time he pushes in. His jagged breaths tell me he’s getting close and my fingers bring a stifled moan from me that seals the deal for him.
“I’m gonna come.” He moans desperately. I simply allow him to use me to get there, I love it when he really lets go “Oh God.” He gasps as his body tenses, then releases into my willing mouth.
He shudders as he finishes. Looking down at me, he laughs.
I’m breathless and weak with need, but I’m happy on this occasion to make that all about him. It’s one in the bank for me later, not that we’re keeping score. Trembling a little, I stand and wipe away the tears he forced from my eyes with his deep thrusting.
“Can we go to dinner now?” I smirk.
“I don’t think you were finished.” He grins, trailing a finger along the fabric of my knickers.
“Later.” I say firmly, moving his hand away.
“No, now!” He demands, lifting me suddenly.
I shriek, “Danny! Put me down!” Which he does, on the bed, with a thump. He yanks my underwear to the side and sucks in my clit, before I know what has happened.
“Oh, God!” I cry as his fingers push inside me.
