name is Jettie Woodruff. I am from Ohio. I don’t know what genre I write in.
People tell me I have my own genre. I write whatever I feel, because
that’s what makes me happy. I don’t want to be in that box where I can only write
one genre. I
tend to like my bad boy’s, taboo; the touchy subjects that make you want to
throw your kindle. Usually at said hot alpha male. Sometimes the female lead as
well. My motto is life is short. Very short. If it doesn’t make you happy
anymore then why do it? Move on. Some of my favorite things, besides
writing are, friends, family, and the beach. Music, although my interest has
changed after forty, I like the new stuff. Happy Reading.
This story definitely has a pull you in quality you can’t ignore.
An accident causes memories to be lost for Gabriella. As if picking up and trying to place your life back together like pieces of a puzzle isn’t enough, Paxton leaves Gabriella with an uneasy feeling.
Paxton is her husband, and a controlling one at that. Why is she so attracted to a man who acts like this? Gabriella changes and so does their relationship with Paxton. Reading along as these two reinvent their connection made this story an interesting read. I only wish there was a little more to wrap up the ending. I know, I know, book two.
If you are looking for a flowers and candy romance, you won’t find it here. What you will find is a gritty, steamy, and frustrating read that makes you want more. It’s the things that aren’t said that really make the story. This read is more , but I’m having trouble putting anything more into words without turning this into a spoiler. I cannot wait to read the next book.
