As a married mother of three, Addison Greyer has always been known for doing the right thing. Hoping to keep it that way, she fought like hell to avoid falling for the mysterious, highly successful, albeit broken man whom the world knows as William Hartman. But what Addison didn't understand was that you can't help who you fall in love with and that it almost never happens the way you think it should.
Unfortunately for Addison, William Hartman and her desire for him continue to occupy her mind every single waking moment of the day. There's something undeniable in the way he makes her feel. From the way he looks at her to the way he so eloquently professes his love and longing via written letters, it suddenly becomes pretty clear that some rules were made to be broken.
With the two of them separated by a trial, public opinion, and a marriage that seems to be unraveling by the hour, Addison tries to keep it all together as life as she knows it is falling apart. However, as the pressure mounts, Addison soon realizes the price she'll pay to keep everyone else happy.
In this highly anticipated sequel to Bedrock, Addison and William rekindle their torrid, sensual affair through a series of love letters. What remains to be seen is whether their love and desire for one another can sustain them as they attempt to overcome the realities of their broken pasts and build a future together.
Due to heavy subject matter, strong language, and sexual content this book is for mature audiences.
Although the first book seemed a little too much for me, the characters do really drag you in. So by the end I knew I wanted to read this one. I knew this was going to be about the trial (or so I thought!) but it’s about so much more.
I liked Addison so much more in this one. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not here to judge anyone, including characters in books, it wasn’t her actions that I didn’t like but that she didn’t feel like a person. In this one there was so much more to her. I could really feel her pain and I empathized with all of her decisions, even if I didn’t agree with them.
And William! Sigh… he is as lovable as ever! I was so happy to find out more about him in this! It’s deep!
Patrick hasn’t changed much. This guy just feels soooo unlikeable to me! I just want to punch him in the face. Maybe I need to take Dom lessons first… But really, his relationship with his mom argh. And his mom! God, that woman! Can we say that she is the epitome of an evil mother-in-law, petty, lying, bitch?! I mean, what is with that woman? I really just want another book on her because I just don’t get her. Although I probably wouldn’t read it on my Kindle because I just wanted to throw it every time I came across a chapter with her name in it. Worst person ever! Fictional or non. She wins the prize so far for 2014!!
Whew… now that I’m off of THAT soap box… The plot for this was very intriguing. I loved the mysterious feel, although I’m not really into mysteries, but it was just fabulous. I was squirming wanting to know what was going to happen next but not wanting to know in case it was terrible!
All in all a fantastic series with a handful of great (even if they are hated) characters. And like the first, very, very sexy! Definitely not for young adults!
The extended version and in third person no less : Britney is married to a man she adores (when he isn’t driving her crazy) and is the mother of FIVE amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving her crazy, her best guess is that it’s genetic. In addition, she founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to almost 800 members. Currently, she occupies a job she loves- serving and running Austin Women’s Network. To further prove that she may in fact be certifiably insane, she decided to publish her debut novel entitled, Bedrock in May of 2013. Then and only then, could she consider her training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.
In her free time, you might find Britney running, reading, or spending time utilizing the wonderful venues that make her city great.
