Imogen

There is no way we can still love and cherish one and other.

When I married Theo Walsh, the rough, bearded townie who worked construction on my family’s summer house, I’d found my happily ever after.

That was before the fighting.
Before the jealousy.
Before the infertility.

We’ll be divorced long before death does us part.

But to secure my place in the family dynasty, there is just one more hoop I have to jump through. And I need him to do it.

Faking the marriage we once thrived in will gut me.
Especially with the secret I’m carrying.

Theo

I would have sacrificed for her until the end of time.

My job.
My home.
My happiness.

I’d given it all up to marry her. That’s how much I loved Imogen Weston, the daughter to one of the world’s richest families.

From the day we met, I’d done nothing but try to live up to the man she expected to be with. And now, I was done.

Sure, I’d complete this one final ask of hers, even if it destroyed me.

But I’ve made her promise the one thing that might save me. She swore that after she got everything she ever wanted, she wouldn’t look back.

I made my wife vow to leave me forever.

How do I sum this book up without letting any cats out? I have no clue. I started reading on the bus journey to work, by nine percent I was already in tears, yes, whilst on the bus, no care given. None. Zero. Zilch. Anyway, I carried on reading whilst doing the return bus journey home and no sooner did I get home and kick my shoes off, I jumped back in. Fast forward through nightly chores, etc, and I was back into this gem and I didn’t put it down until I read those sweet tortuous words: The End. The number of times being driven into reading as if I gasp for air after swimming is something I can count on both hands and still have spare fingers.

This is a book of three parts: Imogen’s and Thero’s point of view and the walks down memory lane we relive right along with them. Each memory is shared to shove the reader into the emotions as well as the history that these two have endured. Plenty of them are hard to read for one reason or another. They are surely soul mates for true. Their world throws them on a spin cycle more than once and each time they break just a little bit more. How can two people who truly are two halves of a whole not be together? They’d have been safer in a war zone if you ask me.

Imogen’s family play a huge part in destroying their lives. In a class equal to the Vanderbilt’s. True WASPs through and through. Troubles are shoved under overpriced Persian rugs and ignored; only when Imogen marries a “Townie” they can’t shove that much under the rug. Her father is as evil as I have seen without being a TV villain. I daresay off page he rubs his hands gleefully several times. I often found myself wondering how any woman in her thirties could allow her father such control, having said that, I don’t come from old money or high society. Theo gives up so much for his wife. More than anyone has the right to ask. Yet she never asks, he gives and gives and when the cookie crumbles for the final time Imogen is the one who sneaks out in the middle of the night.

The entire time I experienced this book and it is an experience, I’ve talked about it so much, several friends have already one-clicked. Living their lives with them became oxygen to me and I had to know how it ended, hence why I was up until gone two in the morning reading. The book hangover was so worthwhile.

‘How do we turn it off now? Now that we’re supposed to be done. How do we stop loving each other when we had no idea that we’d stated? One day, I’d been me. And the next I’d been here. There was no in between.’ 

Imogen isn’t the bad person in this; she’s ignorant to what her husband is suffering. Imprisoned in a bubble of solitude and pain. Love scenes were few and far between. Imogen and Theo aren’t in a place where sex can fix them. Imogen wants to return to a normal life and the way she does it had me feeling nauseous. How can she not see that she’s selling her soul to the devil and sacrificing who she’s become?

“We fell in love because we were meant to, because you stood as steady as a rock in the middle of the ocean when it came to our relationship.” 

Money and stature play heavily in their marriage. Imogen and Theo aren’t the ones that put it there. She has money, Theo doesn’t. Theo is indifferent to it, he hates the level of money they have. He sees it as an anvil hanging over Imogen’s head. She sells herself short so many times and tries to explain herself in narration and I just wanted to throttle the woman. I understand how these things can be ingrained into someone but for goodness sake, have a little more self-preservation.

‘It goes against everything I’ve said to him and to myself since I left Theo… but deep down, I want him so much it’s killing me. Every day we’re together, it’s like I’m carving our pieces of my soul.’ 

The author did the story so much justice. From minute one there is emotion and heartbreak. No build up here, oh no. This was my read of a Carrie Aaron book and I won’t allow it to be my first. The front cover does the book so much justice. I need me a Theo. Everyone on earth deserves a Theo to love them as much as he loves his wife. He asks himself once if he’s more invested and I truly believe that he was. She held a little back whilst he went full force, balls to the wall.

‘I would cut off my right arm, taken a bullet, thrown myself in front of a train…you name the horrific maiming and I would have done it to spend my life with this woman.’ 

Thank you, Ms. Aaron, for getting this one out there. The subject matter was difficult at times to endure. The heartbreak and tears so worth the ending.

BRAZEN (Brazen Duet Book 1) by             M. Malone & Nana Malone is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing M. Malone & Nana Malone’s first book in the Brazen Duet, BRAZEN

Wham, bam, thank you ma’am? That’s my motto.

There’s no room in my life for anything more complicated than a one-night stand. I’m a bodyguard. It’s easier to put my life on the line when there’s no one worrying if I’ll make it home for dinner.

But then the one woman who made me want more waltzes back into my life needing my protection.

Despite our explosive chemistry, we can’t go there again. What happened in Vegas, has to stay in Vegas.

Except the marriage vows neither of us remember.

The heir apparent to one of the world’s largest perfume companies, Hailey is driven to prove to the world that she has what it takes. Having locked herself and her heart away since one amazing weekend in Vegas years earlier; she has no time for frivolous activities or time wasting. If only whoever is trying to kill her could get the memo, Hailey would be super happy.

‘All kinds of a man. He’d been the only marker I really had for what a man was. But there was something about him now. Something even more self-assured.’ 

Oskar Mueller team player and part of Blake Security, (yes, The Blake Security from the Winston Isles. Yummy Alpha Men) is front and centre in the epic story that is Hailey and her deadly shadows. Only they have a history and that history is far more complex than anyone, especially for the reader, understands.

The hurt is still very real for one and yet both are still forcibly attracted to one another. Magnets would have an easier time staying away from each other than these two. As is always in the case for these writers, there are so many questions that need answering. Why is Hailey’s mother the way she is? Why is her father so protective and secretive? Why does Hailey’s own brother loathe her so much? And who in the heck would want to kill a lab geek who just mixes up perfumes?

Oskar and Hailey are so very different. Different in every way that counts, doesn’t matter though, not to them because they love each other fiercely and when the walls come-a-tumbling down, their simply eyewitnesses to the chemistry their bodies have been fuelling ever since they last were together. Our major players aren’t the only ones feeling the lust chemical; I just wonder how that one will work out.

‘…I inhaled. Sandalwood. I sighed and immediately relaxed. I love that smell. The moment I was wrapped in his arms, I felt like I was exactly where I belonged.’ 

I have always respected how these authors create families. It rarely comes from people who share blood. As we move further into the twenty-first-century, family has taken on such a broader term and authors the world over are reflecting real society into their books. This makes me happy and content to read such books. Family and lives are no longer just fluid, no two people are ever the same (even identical twins are different).

One more comment about this book though, what the heck was that cliffhanger ladies? Do you know what you’re doing to me? Thank goodness, the next one is out very soon. Jeez. I have come to the most obvious conclusions: either of these two cannot pen a book and not have me clinging onto the edge of my seat and suffering from awful palpitations. Wick authors, evil, devilish. Please, do not ever change! Kudos on another great one.

How the hell did I, the perpetual bachelor, end up accidentally married in Vegas—to my client?

As soon as I find out who’s trying to kill her, we’ll get a quickie divorce…or will we? I was never supposed to be married. I was never supposed to fall in love. I was never supposed to put her in danger.

But now that she’s back in my life I wonder if some things shouldn’t stay in Vegas.

To keep her I’ll have to fight for her. Good thing I’m brazen enough to do just that.
