NEW RELEASE: Fragile Truths (Shadows of Sin #1)

FRAGILE TRUTHS (Shadows of Sin #1)
Authors: D.H. Sidebottom & R.M. James
Genre: Dark Fictional Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2014

To live is to suffer; to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering. 
Friedrich Nietzsche.


The bitterness is consuming. It's intensity slashes and claws at my insides, it's hatred wrenching my soul as it curls and nurtures my need for revenge.
HIS torture only feeds my vice. I won't let HIM break me, only strengthen me. The pain HE gives is welcomed, it's rawness fuelling the loathing inside with each of HIS thrashes and tears on my pale skin, with every harsh truth HE breathes in my ear and with each of HIS crippling holds.

I have waited too long for this and I'll never let the bastard win.

He will have to end me before I give in.

But now HE has a weapon against me. Something I swore throughout my life I would never let in;




Her strength astounds me. HE doesn't seem to break her.

HIS relentless persecution and determination to bury her under his furious reign and brutality eats at my soul. It has found that dark place inside me, the pit of hell I had locked and secured away, and enriched it, demanded its flourish and ripened its ferocity. The family wrath.

She'll never give in, and I pray every night as I guide her through the darkness that tomorrow will bring the light to her soul before it is consumed, finally, by the plague of HIM.




She blossoms under my torture, the soft suppleness of her skin ripping and tearing as though her soul is trying to break free from the agony.

I'll allow it, because I can. Because I need her soul. I crave the sustenance it feeds my rage with, my thirst for cruelty quenched by the sounds of her desolate screams and my hunger for blood, nourished by the slow drip of her life force at my feet.

She thinks I won't break her, so does he. They underestimate the blood that slithers through my veins. It's the blood that tenures those around me.

The bloodthirsty.

The Shadows of Sin.

Review: 4 Stars

I'd like to start by saying I had an idea this story would be a wide ride before I started reading it, only because I'm familiar with DH Sidebottom's work and her brand of intense storytelling.  With that being said, Fragile Truths not only exceeded my expectations but added a level of intensity and brutality I didn't expect.

In this story, we follow Francesca, Tate and Jude through intermittent encounters that began at a young age until coming full circle in adulthood.  Francesca finds herself caught between a new found love, that brings about a self discovery she never expected, and a lifelong promise for revenge. 

As the story progressed I found myself admiring the heroine of this book so much more than any previous books I've read.  No matter what was thrown at her, her strength only grew that much more and all while discovering a love she never expected and would die for, if needed. Her devotion and love for her family and Tate are awe inspiring and she's willing give up anything and everything.  

You'll enjoy the passion between Tate and Frankie and you'll cringe at the brutality they each endure for that love.

This is a great story and well worth the wait.

The Baby & the Bride by Laura Bernard

Sequel to the #1 Amazon Best-Seller, The Debt & the Doormat (available for FREE)

Poppy and Jazz’s lives sound perfect on paper. Jazz has a new baby and Poppy’s getting married. But their realities are very different.

Poppy must strive to keep her cool new job with crazy hours, while trying to keep Ryan happy. Before she knows it her wedding has got out of control, thanks to her mother, the runners at work are bullying her, her parents are in financial difficulty and she’s doubting everything and everyone she ever knew.

Meanwhile Jazz is struggling with motherhood, something a credit card won’t fix. Why won’t this baby give her a break? Will Jazz be able to cope before she loses it?

And will Poppy make it down the aisle? Will Ryan even be waiting?

Review: 4 Stars
The Baby & the Bride picks up a few months after The Debt & the Doormat left off and immediately pulls you in with laughter. We continue to follow Poppy and her life of people pleasing but are also given the POV of her best friend Jazz as she adjusts to being a new mother. In this story we get to experience their ups and downs as they continue to discover their road to being official grown-ups no matter how much they try to hold on to the good ol' days of their youth.

I enjoyed the comical situations they're thrust into as they plan a wedding and becoming accustomed to having a baby in their group. Poppy's ever intrusive mother keeps everyone on their toes with her take charge, over the top persona while Ryan, the gorgeous groom-to-be, deals with family drama, due to Poppy's meddling. 

The characters are just wonderfully ordinary people with typical dramas occasionally overshadowed by Poppy's constant bad luck. There were several instances I nearly fell over with laughter.  This was a great comedy and would be handy to have when getting over a serious book hangover from an intense read. 

My suggestion is to get cozy, grab a glass of wine and enjoy.  I highly recommend it.

The Debt & the Doormat by Laura Bernard

Poppy and Jazz have been best friends from the first week of Uni.  Whenever these two get together trouble isn't far away and things haven't changed much.  When Jazz gets herself into financial trouble Poppy, being a good friend, offers to help.  She instead ends up being talked into swapping lives, with Jazz insisting it will be good and help her get over her broken heart.

Poppy is thrown into a new life, full of crazy housemates; there's fitness freak Izzy, horrendously beautiful bitch Grace and the slightly gorgeous, if not incredibly grumpy Ryan.  Quickly, with the help of Jazz, her life is thrown upside down.  Madness ensues and her need to please everyone gets her in more trouble than she could ever imagine.

Before she knows it she's got a fake boyfriend and is hiding so many secrets she's scared they'll spill out any minute.  With a bullying boss, a sex crazed colleague, a mental mother and three brothers each with their own dramas, life has gotten pretty difficult for Poppy.  And all of this would be much easier, if she could just stop falling over.

Will she get her life back to normal before her brother's upcoming wedding?  And will she want to?

As a new blogger, I was approached by the author to review her new release The Baby & the Bride which is a sequel to The Debt & the Doormat.  To learn the back story of her latest release, I immediately began reading her first story about Poppy Windsor and her agreement to help her best friend, Jazz Green, out of debt and help Jazz gain some life stability.

Little did she know how much this new arrangement of swapping lives would affect her instead.  An honest to goodness people pleaser, Poppy gets herself into numerous sticky situations because she's constantly trying to avoid hurting anyone's feelings causing some very funny outcomes. Ultimately, Poppy learns a lot about herself and becomes a stronger person for it.  

I can't tell you how many times I was asked what I was reading because I was laughing out loud during breaks at work, at the store or even at a concert while I waited for it the band to set up.  More recently, I was explaining the book to my sister on our road trip to the Austin Book Fest and even the couple scenes I explained to her had us both full on belly laughing in the car.

Laura Bernard did a wonderful job with this story.  Not only did I laugh at Poppy's predicaments but I felt like I could totally relate to what she was feeling and why she did the things she did. Ultimately, Poppy learns a lot about herself and becomes a stronger person for it.  

This is a great story for when you're getting over the ultimate book hangover and need some comedy relief. I five it 4 stars. Go ahead and one-one click. The book is currently a freebie and I don't how long that will last. It's definitely one for your kindle library.
