These Stones Will Shout - My Review of Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher

Title: Atheists Who Kneel and Pray
Author: Tarryn Fisher
Publication Date: July 13, 2017
Source: My Shelves

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse. 

She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long. 

David Lisey is in need of a muse. 

A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he's found what he's been looking for. 

Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential: 
A broken heart. 

David’s religion is love. 

Yara’s religion is heartache. 

Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.

New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Tarryn Fisher is cooler than you, but not one to rub it in your face. She graduated first in her class at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She is a lover of human nature, and a real life villain (House of Slytherin). Her heart is dark, but she loves you with it anyway. Currently, she lives in Washington with her son and daughter, and just finished her ninth novel, Bad Mommy, which is now available.

Ok, let's talk about Yara. 

Yara is not soft. Yara is not a cuddly person. Yara is not the romance-craving, 'ready-to-swoon' type of gal. Not to say that she is hard, but rather, Yara is complicated. She is difficult. She is not at all someone I would have chosen to fit with David.

David is totally swoony. He is full of romantic notions and would definitely cuddle on the couch all day. David is the type of musician every girl would kill to meet. 

David and Yara fall into their relationship rather easily, but they each have a different idea of what is actually happening. 

“So let me get this straight,” I said, looking around. “You want me to make you fall in love with me, and you’re giving me permission to leave and break your heart?”

Tarryn Fisher's writing has a way of both knocking my socks off and scaring me stupid. I know, Know, KNOW that there will be pain, but I jump in willingly, handing her the razor blade to let her carve at me.

Now listen, when I say there is pain, you have to understand that it is a beautiful kind of pain. It is a pain that cuts deep and cuts quick, but you also know that there is healing coming.

The restoration process does so much more than mend the obvious hurts. Hidden depths are explored and the end result is a much stronger and more resilient character (and reader) that emerges in the end.

He made my truth light and funny without diminishing the importance of it. The perfect man. Perfect for me.

Yes, this is a romance, but it is romance with teeth and that is something that you will begin to crave.

5 out of 5 stars
