This is the second book in the Fermosa Bay series, which, I’m trying to get onto the market as soon as possible.
DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.
This is still a WIP, so critique away.
Thanks … and enjoy 🙂
Ethan walked over to Emily, placed his arm around her shoulder, and placed a kiss on her forehead. She moved around to look at him, and he choked back a sigh at the sight of her. Her grief obvious in her eyes with her face red, blotchy, and slightly swollen, which he assumed was from all the crying. Connor hadn’t exaggerated when he’d said she took it the hardest.
“How are you, pumpkin?” he asked just above a whisper.
She shook her head.
“Is he really dead?” Nick asked against her chest in-between sobs.
Emily hugged him even tighter as more tears flowed down her cheeks. “Yes, honey. I’m afraid he is.”
Connor joined them. “How about we head inside,” he asked quietly.
Without any warning, Nick moved out of Emily’s embrace and looked at Connor. “I’m sorry about your dad,” he said, still sobbing. It tore Ethan apart, the ache to see his son in so much pain, but still remembering his manners.
Connor knelt in front of him, his struggle with emotions evident. “Thanks buddy. Jack made me promise to tell you how much he loved you. He wants you not to be sad for too long, because he thinks life is too short to be sad. And even though you can’t see him, he’ll always be around.”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.
