Tara's 5 Bare Naked ***** Review
Being a strong, confident woman is tough in this world. It's also a lot tougher when you're in a relationship where you are constantly being degraded and made to feel worthless. Being in a relationship like this is very hard to get out of, especially when you're made to believe that it is your fault.
"My voice is now raised and my eyes meet his. If I am going to die, I won't do it afraid of him."
Amber believed she had found "the one" with Tommy. He told her all the right things and made her feel special, mostly in front of others. But when they were alone, Tommy tore Amber down inch by inch, until she couldn't recover. When push comes to shove, Amber is forced to do the unthinkable and ends up in a hospital. Being taken away from all she knows, Amber tries to start fresh, with the help of her new neighbour Will. But will Amber's past come back to haunt her?
"Normal fears for a twenty-one-year-old girl are awakened in me and I know that I want this. I want normal and excited, and I want the butterfly’s that are creating a tornado in my belly. I want to start living my life again. "
Mistakes of My Past was an intense read. Filled with serious, real-life scenarios, I found myself reading non-stop, with the hope that everything worked out for the MC. Emily James did a great job highlighting the truth about abuse in relationships, and helped show us that help is always there. If you find yourself in a similar situation, remember you are not alone. Reach out and talk to someone, take that first step in getting out of an abusive situation.
"There’s something liberating about finally putting your past behind you and looking toward a meaningful future that makes you feel as free as the birds that soar overhead and the fish that swim in the lake. "
Emily James is a British author from the south coast of England. She enjoys exploring new destinations, adores animals, particularly dogs, and advocates kindness to all animals and humans.
Before turning her hand to writing, Emily worked as a social worker. This enabled her to gain insight into both the human psych and also the injustices facing everyday people.
Emily enjoys complex romance novels since she believes nothing good ever comes easily. She's also fond of the saying that patience is a virtue. Having said this, Emily is not what you might call patient or virtuous! Stubborn and tenacious is perhaps more fitting.
