Henry & Me Release Blitz +Review

Title: Henry & Me
Author: Sasha Clinton
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 5, 2017

When we were in college, Henry Stone asked me out and I shot him down in the most humiliating way possible.
He was a nerd and I was the golden girl of the theatre society, destined to make it big in Hollywood, so how could there be anything between us?
Now, six years later, as an out-of-work actress who has to take on a housekeeping job to stay afloat, I run into him again—and boy, has he made it big.
As I begin to clean his house and take care of his precocious nephew, I realize how wrong I was about him. He’s sexy, smart, kind, everything.
But I have demons that he can’t fight. Demons that keep me away from love.
One thing’s for sure: This housekeeper gig is going to be the hardest role of my life.

Blank. My mind goes totally blank. A deeply disturbing feeling coils under my ribs, spreading its coldness throughout my body.
Tumor? Did he say tumor? The stuff you get when you’ve got cancer?
No. No, no, no. I can’t lose him. I cannot. In these terribly depressing times, when my career has failed and my luck’s pulled a Houdini on me, Lucien and Henry are the only people making my life worthwhile. I really, really anticipate seeing him every morning, making him breakfast, talking to him. I don’t want him to go.
“Tumor, did you say?” My lip wobbles.
“I didn’t mean to scare you.” He puts both his hands under the arch of his back for support. Does it still hurt there? “Maybe it’s my imagination, but when I was diagnosed with cancer four years ago, I felt a similar pain in my back, and I was confident it was nothing…but I was wrong,” Henry says, in a voice that milks every ounce of my emotions.
I don’t want to cry for him. But I do. On the inside.
And then poof goes my promise to not get near him, not touch him, not put my arms around him, draw him close and comfort him. I do it all.
My cheek sweeps an arc over his shoulder blade, and in those moments, the world is pure and beautiful and there is no such thing as fear. I don’t even recoil.
Maybe, I think, it’s because I know he’s a good person. The reason doesn’t even matter. What matters is to comfort him. 
“Don’t feel bad for me.” Henry winds one arm around me.
The urge to protect him that arises within me at that moment tells me more than I need to know.
“I’m not feeling bad for you. I’m praying that you’re wrong.”
I don’t even recognize the person who says that.
When did I become someone who cares for other people? When did Henry Stone become someone who could tear my soul to pieces with a simple glance? When did he go from being a nobody I wouldn’t look at twice in a million years to making my heart race like a F1 racecar in his presence? Have I been blind all along or has he always been so fuckin’ beautiful?

This is the first book I have read by Sasha and I really enjoyed it. Henry and Max meet in college when he asked her out. Max had a dream then of becoming a famous actress and winning an Oscar. She believed Henry was below her and turned him down. Now years later she is living with her brother and sister-in-law. Max goes on a job interview to be a housekeeper and nanny. Turns out Henry is the man she would work for. As Max gets to really know Henry she finds that he is totally different from the man she thought he was. She begins to have feelings for him but she has demons. They are holding her back and make her fear the outcome if she gave into the feelings she has for Henry. Henry lets Max know that he he has feeling for her as well. He wants to help her with her fears. Help her find a way to overcome them. He is willing to wait as long as it takes. Fear is a powerful emotion. Is Max letting her past experiences dictate her future ones as well? Will she find the courage to work through her fears? Not only for a chance with Henry but for herself as well? This book was emotional. Max puts on this strong front. But really, she is scared and insecure. She is facing a future totally different than the one she imagined for herself. No one can say their life went exactly as plan but that doesn’t change the sadness that comes with the loss of a dream. I felt for Max and love Henry. Henry is a great guy who gone through his fair share of things. Together they could have a great thing. I look forward to reading more books by Sasha in the future.
