Within the fist few pages of this book I had tears running down my face. We meet Braxton and Jemma who originally meet as young children when Jemma’s family moves in next door, Braxton being 12 months older than Jemma. They become friends, they become best friends, they become lovers, they get married and nineteen day’s later tragedy strikes when Jemma is in a car accident, when she wakes from a coma she has no recollection of her who she is or her life. She was everything to Braxton, his sole mate, his best friend, his lover, the mother of his furture children, she was the reason he got up every day. How on earth is he going to survive now???? Poor Jemma I really felt for her, she wakes from the coma and has all these people around her but she has no idea who they are, she doesn’t recognise anyone, not her husband, her parents or her best friend. Braxton knows he won’t survive with his “wife” so he does everything he can to try and help her remember. He writes her letters, yes there are Nineteen of them and in each he tells her about particular special events in their life. Will these letters help her remember her past???? Will Jemma fall in love with her husband all over again??? Will Braxton lose Jemma for ever???? As Braxton tells her all time “What we had was far too beautiful to be forgotten”…. will she remember??? I’d advise you to have the tissues ready as you are going to need them. I have read and loved all of the other books written by JL Perry but this book is in a class of it’s own.

This is the first book by Charlotte Nash that I’ve read and it certainly won’t be the last.

By doing this she gave up on following her dreams. Now 10 years later, Rachael’s mother has sadly passed away and she’s living on the farm by herself, and Matthew is marrying someone else. Rachael get’s an invitation to the Wedding which included an all expenses paid trip to Paris. It’s going to be a big lavish affair and Rachael isn’t sure if she should go or not. Eventually she decides to go on what will be a trip of a lifetime. Rachael is totally unprepared for what this week in Paris will bring. Will seeing Matthew again bring up all the old feelings??? Will Rachael meet a tall dark stranger who will become the man of her dreams???? Will Rachael return to the farm broken hearted???? Will all of Rachael’s dreams come true????? Will love conquer all??? I actually listened to the Audio of this book and thoroughly enjoyed it…. There were twists and turns and the story certainly did not turn out how I expected it to.

New Release / Book Review

By: KM Golland
Released 21st August 2017
Commitment is Book #5 in KM Gollands Temptation Series. I have to admit this is one of my favourite series and I was so glad to go back and spend some time with my friends at City Towers. We have previously met Natasha Jones (Tash) in Book 1 as she is good friends with Alexis who is now married to City Towers owner Bryce Clarke. Tash has a great life which she loves, she been married to Dean for what seems like forever and has two wonder young sons. She works as the Events Supervisor at City Towers. When Tash’s relationship with her co-worker Dean, who works in Security at City Towers, progresses it starts to make Tash think about her marriage and if it’s all she thought it really was. Dean is a relaxed and fairly easy going sort of guy, he never really speaks his mind and really just goes with the flow in order to keep his wife happy. He has no idea that his marriage could be in trouble. Again with this book we see Ms Golland’s sense of humour show through. There were times while reading this that I literally laughed out loud. Donuts, Donuts, Donuts. There are lots of funny lines and new words I like to call “KM Words”. There were twists and turns and I literally didn’t know what was going to happen with this couple. I thought I knew, but was totally blown out of the water with what happened. This is another fantastic read that I would highly recommend.
