Good morning all! Today I’m back with my first release blitz since I started posting here again. I’m sorry that I’ve been gone this past week. I just got behind on everything, but I’m going to get better this week!
Also, I posted a video on my YouTube! Make sure you check it out and let me know any books that you have read that deal with loss of innocence.
Speaking of innocence, let’s get to this release blitz!!
Just so you all know, the Amazon US links are for my Amazon Associates. In other words, by using that link, I will get a certain amount from the sale. It helps me out. You can use this link by clicking on the photo of the cover and the Amazon US link in the list of purchase links in this post. I will be eternally grateful!
I stopped doing release blitz for Give Me Books Promotions because they always seem very hit or miss for me. The books usually chosen aren’t one’s that I would normally pick up. They focus a lot more on the smutty romances rather than the more tame ones that I prefer.
This one was right in the middle. The sex scenes were hot, but tame enough. And THANK YOU Harper Phoenix for being very actively mentioning protection and the like.
She was sworn off men…
… Until an accidental meeting changed everything.
Alissa sacrificed everything for her husband and child. While he climbed the corporate ladder, she made them a nice home and became the perfect wife.
Until he broke her trust.
Broke her spirit.
Since a tragic accident changed his existence, Luke has had to fight his demons on a daily basis. Despite the heartbreak that haunts him he is determined to live his life to the fullest.
A promise he can’t break.
No matter the pain.
When fate throws Alissa and Luke together, it’s the very last thing either of them are looking for. Is there a chance its could be everything they need?”
Be warned that this book does have trigger warnings for anxiety and the death of a child. So know that going into that.
So, overall I really loved this book. I had read a book that I didn’t really love right before this one and I was really nervous going into it.
I started reading it and fell in love with these characters. I connected with Alissa and understood her anxiety. You could tell that the author has been through this themselves while reading it.
I truly fell in love with this couple and I wanted them to get their happy ending. After everything they’ve been through, that’s just what they deserved.
This tells the story of these two through heartbreak and their dark times and show that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, if you just work toward it.
Definitely 5 stars from me!

Get To Know The Author
I’m a born and bred East Yorkshire lass. Where I still live with my husband and our children.
A self-confessed night owl, that’s usually when I do my best work, lucky for me home-schooling my daughter gives me plenty of time to catch up on those late-night hours writing, although my irrational love of full sugar coke can help with that too—don’t tell the sugar police.
I wrote my first book when my daughter was born back in 2004, but it stayed on my laptop for years while I worked out what to do with it. Things were sure different back then, and to be able to publish a manuscript you’d poured your soul into seemed a far-off dream, one that I didn’t know would ever come true.
While my first book baby festered on my hard drive, I went on to study a Creative Writing and English degree, while also growing our family with not only children but more puppies and dog’s than a sane woman should have.
With a degree under my belt, those original characters, tucked safely far away from sight, still called to me like old friends. Using my new skills and knowledge I decided to give them the attention they deserved. Forbidden Love is the result of those long years of maturing and I couldn’t be prouder of how my first novel turned out.
What began as one story, fifteen years ago, grew to become a series and in 2016 I took the plunge and dove into the indie publishing world releasing Forbidden Love to feedback that blew my mind.
And here I still am, loving every minute, bringing characters that hold a place in my heart to life.
All I can do now, is hope you are here to join me for the ride.

When your whole world implodes and in the matter of hours and your happily ever after turns to dust, life sucks.
I’m left holding the baby. Literally.
The baby being my eleven-month old daughter, Nora, who knows nothing of her father’s failure to be a decent husband… man… well human-being really. He’s a shitty person and that’s all there is to it. Our story started out like your typical fairy-tale. Goosebumps still prickle my skin when I remember the way he chased me throughout Senior school, and the years of romance that followed. And the proposal and wedding? Just call me Cinde-fucking-rella. But my perfect life came crashing down as quickly as that pink line appeared on the pregnancy test. Apparently a tired, puffy and hormonal wife didn’t exactly make my husband’s dick stand to attention. So, in a move I can only imagine was driven by his little head (and I do mean little,) he decided my ex-best friend was a better option.
That’s right I said ex because before she did the dirty with my husband she was the best friend. I told her everything, confided in her and cried on her shoulder about my non-existent sex life and all the while her own sex life was heating up with my husband. Weekends away on ‘business trips’ and doing all the things a wife should be doing with her husband. Except she was his slutty side piece with a big fat mouth and a huge spent pussy the whole football team had ridden so often they called her the local bike.
Yeah, I’m bitter and I don’t care. I’ve been wronged by the two people I trusted the most. Now I’m a single mother with no social life to speak of, and my only conversation is in baby gobbledegook. I actually look forward to the delivery woman ringing the doorbell when I order groceries online. Yeah, I have them delivered. Have you ever tried juggling a crying baby and a shopping cart while concentrating on what comfort food you plan to stuff your face with that night while crying over chick flicks? Yeah, I’m miserable, it’s obvious, right?
