★ ★ ★ ★ 1/2 Unconditional Stars
I LOVE this author. I love her writing, her voice, her tone, her characters, everything! I have read every book she’s written and after each, I can’t wait for the next. And as with all the others, this is a stand-alone romantic suspense. She is a brilliant story-teller, who doesn’t add unnecessary fluff to her stories. She excellently executed a dual POV between Wes and Faith. Writing a believable male character.
Her characters take journey’s of self-exploration. They may start the story damaged, but they end with understanding and growth. While New Adult romances are not my first choice of reads, I find that I don’t mind reading NA if it’s written by Ms. Johnson. If she writes it, I will read it.
Erasing Faith is no exception. Our Hero had been on his own since childhood and as a result had not felt love, let alone had the ability to share it. But when Faith stepped into his life, she broke through the barriers and the walls he had encased around his heart. She didn’t give up on him and she forced him to see not only what they could have together, but also that he deserved to have it. No matter how hard he pushed her away, she pushed back, accepting, caring and loving.
She vexed him, intrigued and confused him. He intrigued her and swept her off her feet as any fairy tale prince would.
“This wasn’t just our first kiss. It was my first real kiss. Ever.”
Together they were a mix of soft and hard, innocent and cunning, and when their love is challenged the question before them is, is love enough?
“But did you ever stop to think that even if I am a monster… I might still be your soul mate, anyway?”
I loved this story, this romance and these characters. Again, Julie Johnson put a smile on face and has me anxiously waiting for her next book!

“You can’t erase your soul mate.
The marks they leave are etched in permanent ink.”
Weston Abbott is a ghost.
I like it that way.
Floating from place to place, I slip seamlessly into other people’s lives and destroy them from the inside out.
I’m untouchable. Untraceable.
She’s in my head, under my skin. I can’t shake her — I don’t want to shake her.
She’s the best thing that ever happened to me.
And I’m her worst nightmare, come out to play.
Faith Morrissey is dead.
I killed her.
Well, that’s what it feels like.
For three years, I’ve lived as “Fae Montgomery” in a city of strangers, licking my wounds and trying to forget. It’s pointless. No matter how many times I change my name or vanish around unfamiliar street corners, I’ll never stop seeing that foolish, naive girl whenever I look in the mirror.
I know it wasn’t real — that he wasn’t real — but that doesn’t make it any easier.
I can erase myself.
I can never erase him.
