Grip cover

I’ll be there.
Through thick and thin.
Ride or die.
You can count on me.

The promises people make.
The vows we take.
Assumptions of the heart.
Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.
Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol,
Love started at the top of the world
On a Ferris wheel under the stars
But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

Revenge is a dish best served cold… while wearing heels.

April has just learned the real reason behind her boss’ impromptu dinner invitation. He only invited her to dinner with his colleagues to prove a point: that he can show up at an event with a plain Jane and still be considered ‘the man’. She expected better from him and had secretly hoped that one day their friendship would grow into something deeper. Now she knows she will always just be his ‘nerdy secretary’ to him.

But her two best friends won’t let her wallow in her pain. They convince her to give Dr. Stewart a dose of his own medicine. The plan: show up at the dinner looking irresistible and prove to her boss that even nerd girls can be sexy. But first, she has to replace her unattractive business suits with something sexier and more revealing. It’s time for a makeover.

Dr. Chad Stewart would never ‘really’ date his secretary. She was too good, too pure for someone as jaded as himself. It didn’t matter that he was half in love with her. But when he needed an ‘average date’ for a dinner party she was the first person he turned to. He thought his secretary was the perfect choice until he arrived to find her looking like his wildest fantasy. But now she knows the real reason for his invite and he can see in her eyes how hurt she is.

Can Chad convince her to forgive him for hurting her or will she walk out of his life… taking his heart with her?

“Coming Around Again” by Billy London #Spotlight

For #ThrowbackThursday I’m sharing some of my favorite past reads WITH review!


“Coming Around Again”

by Billy London

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Multicultural

Release Date: October 20, 2014

Amazon Button

Synopsis

“I can’t exist in a marriage where you endure me…”

And with those haunting words, Stella’s marriage to Niels comes to a terrible, heartbreaking end. She thought she’d done everything possible to keep her life together and to the outside world, her marriage was nothing less than perfection. Not according to Niels.
As she struggles with the fall out of the divorce, Stella truly understands just how much she underestimated the strength and depth of feeling for her husband. And that they may never go away. However much she wants them to. And it seems, neither will Niels. Certainly not if she calls him. Invites him to her home. Sleeps with him.
Stella tells herself it’s a nostalgic habit she needs to break. Niels tells her it’s just how they are and always will be. Maybe the divorce was exactly what they needed to truly be married…

Felicia’s Review

January 9, 2015

5/5 Stars!

*APPLAUSE!* Loved It!

Wow! How much did I love this story? Enough to lose sleep to finish it – and then sit right down to write this review!

Billy London has taken issues that can be found in far too many marriages and written a heartbreaking book filled with anger, insults, blame-placing, betrayals, unspoken words, loyalty, commitment…and love, and wrapped them in a gift with a big ribbon of sarcasm, humor, and wit. It is a gift that keeps on giving.

Niels Strom feels like his wife, Stella, merely endures him. He feels unloved, unneeded and unnecessary. She is Superwoman doing it all – wife, mother, business owner – not taking his help when he is around, and cursing him when he isn’t around. after nearly ten years of marriage, Niels files for divorce.

I really, really liked Niels. Even though he wasn’t as honest and forthcoming as I first believed, I understood why he wasn’t.

And Stella? I didn’t like her for most of the book! LOL! You have to read the book to understand, but she was her own worst enemy. Naturally, she felt betrayed by Niels, and felt his request for a divorce “came out of the blue”. This from the woman who after seeing her own mother fumble through three marriages, felt she had to rely on only herself and never expect much from men; this from a woman who used sex as a bargaining chip; this from a woman who didn’t even take her husband’s name after they married…not even hyphenated! C’mon. I think she did have some idea of where he was coming from, but anger, pride, and GUILT made her lash out to hurt him. The simple conversation that could have saved them was avoided by them both.

Their family and friends were all likable enough, but you could feel a “distance” between them all. There was never a real sense of familial closeness, which could also explain Niels and Stella inability to communicate with each other. But I had a new respect for Niels’ mother, Alwine after she and Stella finally had “the talk”. Judith, Stella’s mother, seems nice enough, but more stiff…and concerned about what other people think and appearances.

Daniel and William, the twins, are simply adorable, and it would seem, the best of both Stella and Niels. They are children dealing with the breakup of their family, but they’re also two sharp, little con men who know how to work a situation. The wedding scene is hilarious!

Revelations are eventually made that are eye opening…and heartbreaking. My heart went out to both Niels and Stella. I understood him much better, and I liked Stella – even though I still place more blame on her actions and attitude – but…her show of support for Niels near the end redeems her.

While the Stroms are an interracial couple, other than one or two remarks/thoughts by Stella, it isn’t mentioned. It isn’t an issue. It isn’t a distraction. I love that! Kudos to the author!

This is an enjoyable book that I’m sure I’ll read again. I highly recommend it.

Enjoy!
