I'm a tad bit late with my post on this blog tour. Better late than never right? Remember to enter the wonderful giveaway after reading my review.
One never truly knows what goes on behind closed doors in a marriage. On the surface Laurel Brittingham’s life is idyllic but when you dive below the sparkling facade and submerge yourself within the murky, slimy sand at the bottom, life is never as it appears.
Laurel is a devoted, loving and loyal wife and mother. She married her high school sweetheart and created three new young lives during her marriage to Paul, all the while denying and avoiding the role his demons played in their marriage. Laurel’s only saving support system, other than her three children is her rewarding career as a nurse and her three gal pals that she cherishes beyond words. Addictions, anger and emotional abuse are the cornerstone of her marriage until one day life presents an interesting choice.
Laurel wasn’t looking for him, she wasn’t seeking him out. Laurel was loyal; for better or worse weren’t just vows they were a way of life. Fate or destiny introduced a much younger man into her life; a much younger man who was also the son of a good friend. Brandon turned her world and her heart inside out and upside down. Their love was undeniable and soul mending.
Unfortunately, everything has a price. Their relationship unravels a web of lies, betrayal, abduction and deceit. What Laurel doesn’t know is how close to home this ugly web of lies comes. Laurel begins to travel down a path of shocking truths with twists and surprises she never fathomed, even saving a soul she never thought possible. She’s forced to make choices that will affect her family, her friends, and her happiness but most importantly may destroy the very life she holds dearest.
This independent author enjoys writing books about circumstances that shape a person's life and that life is all about the choices we make.
She hopes that you enjoy reading her first novel Choices as much as she's enjoyed writing it!

It’s always an interesting phenomenon for a heroine to find the man of her dreams. It’s even more so when she’s married with children. Add to it that the man who seems to be her destiny at twenty seven years old, is old enough to be her son,and here is a novel with a whole lot of drama in the mix.
Told from the perspective of Laurel, the heroine. Ms. Bliss has woven a tale of intrigue, suspense, full of moments that made me gasp as I hungrily turned the pages.
I will admit that it took me a couple of chapters to get into the story, but at the first twist I was enthralled. The attraction between Laurel and Brandon is intense and fierce. And the relationship between Laurel and her four best friends had me giggling and sighing at their support.
I wouldn’t classify this as a romance, only because the adultery aspect of it kept making me cringe instead of rooting for Laurel and Brandon. Yes her husband was an ass, but still I kept wondering if they would end up together in the end. I won’t give you any spoilers, so read the story to find out who she ends up with. If anyone.
I give Choices three out of five chocolate bars.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
