Author's Info Blog
Today I am welcoming Suzanne Adair to an author interview. I first came across Suzanne's writing at the end of last year, and have been getting more familiar with it since. I have previously reviewed Hostage to Heritage and Camp Follower. She writes about the American War of Independence, so an interview for July 4th seemed perfect! Q. Suzanne, what first attracted you to write about the war of independence? Suzanne Adair A. Thanks for inviting me to be your guest today, Richard. What fun, talking about the American War of Independence on the Fourth of July—on a Brit’s blog, of all places! Although a number of wars have been fought on American soil, the War of Independence has always resonated the most with me. I’m fascinated with the changes in Western people’s heads during the late eighteenth century. They were exploring with telescopes and microscopes and even periscopes. The...
Written as one of “The Review Group” Review Volunteers, see http://thereview2014.blogspot.co.uk It is a very long time since I read a Western. Back in school we had Shane as a class book, and from the same era (and I'm showing my age here) I was a keen watcher of the two television series The Virginian and The High Chaparral. But since those long-ago days I think I have only encountered the Western genre in films. To this British reader, coming across placenames like Rio Verde or Yuma evokes a feeling of going into a fantasy land, where anything might happen. So it was with an entirely appropriate sense of riding into the unknown that I started this book. There were familiar elements that you meet almost at once. There is the mysterious man with the shady past, the abandoned wife struggling to make ends meet for her family, the lawman...
My favorite series coming to a happy ending. Anna and Bentley have been through a whirlwind of emotions. From fighting their urges to leaving everything on the field these two have come across the final step in their relationship: acceptance. Accepting that love really can conquer all and guide you to places they both didn't think possible. I have loved this story from the stripper pole to the soccer field and what these two have in store for you in You and I Forever was more that I could ever have imagined.
The start of this book had me confused and thinking I was missing something, but once you catch up with you see that these two were preparing for a future and one of them didn’t know it. One of the hiccups in their relationship was really not a bad one, but one that was going to be a hurdle. Bentley and Anna met in a strip club she continued dancing even when they were building a relationship. Now, the moment of truth comes in and love enters the equation where Bentley gives Anna the ultimatum. I kind of saw it coming but for me, was one of the one questions I had in my head. Second favorite part in the book for me.
Yes, they are back and right where you left them in the previous book. So it’s only befitting that this book is called Breathless 2 by Shani Greene-Dowdell. I actually really liked this book because it kept me on edge the entire time I was reading it. It had its moment where I was wondering what was really going on each of these characters mind. I was actually surprised about how well everything felt so balanced while leaving me gasping for air. My boyfriend was literally checking on me every second because I was yelling, screaming, and crying. This book had it all and definitely surpassed its former predecessor.
Once you dive into the book, all of your questions are answered as you find out where all the character landed after Justine held Destiny at gunpoint. With Jacob realizing he was tricked, he makes emergency phone calls to protect his lady love. When the situation plays out, you see Destiny in the hospital opening up her eyes with Jacob nowhere in sight. Destiny’s mom and her ex-husband, Montie made sure Jacob wasn’t even allowed to see her.
