Excerpt:


We were so broken, the two of us. Yet, somehow, together, we made each other whole.
I traced a tiny scar on his shoulder. “I don’t deserve you.”
“That’s true . . .” I lifted my eyes to his. “You deserve better.”
Emotion crowded my chest. “There is no better.”
His face filled with pain and I found myself comforting him now. We laid back together and I rested my head on his chest, running my fingertips across his chest, his belly. His body was so familiar, yet so foreign at the same time. I’d never felt closer to anyone, more intimate, yet we hadn’t even made love. I could only imagine what that would be like. I did know, whenever that did happen, that there would be no going back for my heart. I would be his, body and soul, until my last breath.

Review
5 *****
Ever read a book that when you finished, you sat back and went Wow then had to sit and think about all the things that happened in the book, how great it was written and how powerful it came across? Rev left me with that feeling. Where you I know i just Loved it and need a minute to reflect on it.
Micah and Jewel each have pain/tragedy in their past that is holding them back from truly living life to it's fullest. Jewel is hiding, Micah doesn't believe he deserves to be happy. Can they find healing together?
Ms. Allen did a wonderful job touching on subjects that are hard to read about, rape, ptsd, abuse, death etc. She brought light to the subjects without making it a circus act. She brought hope to healing from tragic situations. It was captivating how well it was done with such a delicate hand. 
I love all the Jack-em up guys and Micah is no exception. The broody mysterious guy who keeps to himself. He's a well rounded character who comes alive in this story. I think he is my favorite of the bunch.
Jewel is secretly strong even though she doesn't think it. She's mentally beat herself into uselessness. another character who sits on the sidelines and doesn't bring attention to herself, brought to life with great friends and a special mechanic. 
Rev is a full length book that is hard to put down. the story is amazingly well written and not a minute is predictable.
