Part of our reasoning to do this is to bring more attention to the Indie authors we love to read. With so many books out there now it's hard to figure out what is a good, well-written book...or not. Keep in mind, these are our opinions, things we like to read.
Today's offering is AS TEARS GO BY by Lydia Michaels. Here's the blurb:
Braydon McCullough has spent his life searching for the perfect woman. When a shy beauty propositions him, he assumes he’s found her. Blindsided by their chemistry, his life takes a bewildering turn when she vanishes as quickly as she appeared.
Becca Stevens can’t afford to take risks, but when persuaded by friends to commemorate her divorce by approaching a gorgeous stranger in a bar, common sense abandons her. After an unforgettable night of passion, she panics, running back to her methodical life, promising never to be so reckless again. That is until her Braydon unexpectedly tracks her down.
Braydon’s unwelcome persistence is a complication to Becca’s already challenging life. As a single mother of a son living with autism, she has no room for personal affairs. Braydon’s determination tempts to show Becca how vibrant life can be if she’d only dare to dream again.
When I started this book, I'd read most of the other McCullough Mountain series. This one stood out from the others in that it dealt with divorce, single parenting, and autism. It's already tough for Becca Stevens to trust herself enough to find love once her divorce is final, but adding in a child, and an autistic child, pretty much means it's impossible. Like most people, she figures no one wants to deal with the child of a previous marriage, much less one on the spectrum. But Braydon isn't your typical hero and he doesn't always have to be alpha to connect with someone. It was refreshing that he didn't have to take over to show Becca how she could be loved. Becca frustrated me a few times, especially near the end because she would rather have been miserable than make a decision, but it does work out even if I wanted to strangle her. :D Ms. Michaels does an excellent job painting an HEA out of a nearly impossible situation, and I highly recommend it. This is book 6 in a series, but all of them are good.
