A Reliant Love by Taylor Lavati is a standalone new adult dark romance that alternates point of view between Nathalie Carter and Samuel Torrington.
On the side of the light, we have Nathalie Carter, a girl who strives for independence from her overbearing parents. She leaves home for college in search of a new world—one where she can make all the mistakes every new adult faces. But as luck should have it, she gets exactly what she wants, and she’s pulled into a world she never imagined existed.
On the side of dark, we have Samuel Torrington, a man who can’t escape the white knuckle grip of his past. After discovering that he can’t stay home and survive the day-to-day battle that is living with his mistakes, he devises a plan: he’ll run away. After graduation, he decides he’ll move and start anew. He underestimates his ability to walk away from everything—or, maybe, someone—he encounters in his home town.
Fate brings the two together, and chance takes them on a roller coaster ride that neither would dare hop off. Within destiny’s grasp, they realize there are two things impossible to fight—addiction and attraction.
Lavati effortlessly weaves lies with love and treachery with truth. Her tale will make you fall in love, while simultaneously breaking your heart. You’ll fight for Nathalie and Sam’s relationship, and you’ll pray for them to simply make it out alive. Lavati’s novel hits home for many, as it meshes themes into a seemingly perfect ensemble.
But Lavati’s true power is in her ability to provide enough detail to bring the reader in deep enough to question their own life.

-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
