Our Review:
4.5 stars

I love this series! I recommend you read Escaping Reality before reading Infinite Possibilities.
This book starts off right were Escaping Reality ended. Amy has been on the run for a few weeks now. Liam finally finds her working at a diner in New Mexico. He tries to convince her to go willingly with him. Amy is not sure if she can trust him and once again tries to run away from him, instead of to him. This time Liam is ready and he is on a mission to keep her safe at all costs.
As Amy decides to take control of her life her blackouts keep getting worst. This time she welcomes the blackouts since they help her fill in the gaps of her tragic past. With Liam’s help she is able to uncover new information which assists her in putting this puzzle together.
Then once again her impulsive decisions take her away from Liam while putting herself in danger. As new information is revealed she is no longer sure who she can trust. As the story unravels key players from her past are uncovered and loved ones are lost.
Overall this is an awesome read. I felt that the end was rushed and once again left us with a cliffhanger. I look forward to reading Chad’s POV and seeing how this tragic situation affected him.

Lost in France is an erotic contemporary romance novel set in Paris, the city of Love and Romance. 

Offered a thrilling new job, Rebecca flees her tormented past, putting as much distance between herself and her ex-lover, wanting a fresh beginning in a foreign city. 

On the airplane she meets Alain, a dangerously handsome Frenchman, who seduces her with his charming European ways. But her new boss, super arrogant CEO, Maxwell Grant, doesn't like her entanglement with the Frenchman; he wants Rebecca to himself...

Rebecca hates her boss and tells him in so many words - a career limiting move if ever there was one... 

Is Rebecca jumping from one hotter-than-hell fire into another? And will she finally find what she is looking for?






Jani has been married for a long time to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the sunshine in her life.

Besides reading, her favorite 'thing' is traveling - she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately want the same things. Her hobby - Scrapbooking - keeps her up till way after midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.

Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and Happiness - arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).

I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne Australia. It's a whole new way of life for us down here,we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.

As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football...The round ball version; I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work; I am also rather partial to a glass... or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.

One night, Lacey realized she might be able to run from her past with the help of Becca and one steamy Caine Rogers.

Lacey didn't know, until it was too late, how feelings, honesty, heartbreak and life altering events can change a person. Lacey has Becca’s support but will that be enough.

Will Lacey sacrifice her own happiness to do what is expected?

Our Review:
5 Stars

OMG!!! What did I just read? I literally had to stop twice before finishing this book. I was expecting girl meets bad boy, bad boy saves her from her past then they live happily ever after, next book please! Man was I wrong.  
I was so frustrated with Lacey for being so na├»ve (this is me being nice), that I wanted to reach inside my kindle and slap some sense into her. Caine is a total douche yet Lacey would make excuses for him. I kept asking myself why would the author make her so weak, WHY??? So I came to the conclusion that soon enough her knight in shining armor would rescue her then everything would get better, now halfway thru the book and it still didn’t happen. The relationship between her and Caine, if one can even call it that, would just get even worse by the minute.
So I just had enough I couldn’t finish it, I gave up. Then I figured out it is based on a true story, not just any story, it is L.U. Ann’s story. Wow!!! Then this book took a whole new meaning. As a child I had seen the aftermath of these events. Never in a million years would I have imagined how broken a person is to allow a manipulative A** hole to run her life.

Destructive silence deals with a very sensitive subject of abuse, not only mentally but physically as well. I am looking forward to Lacey finding her HEA and hopefully it happens in the next installment. Since this book ends in a Cliffhanger!

Book Trailer:


Meet the Author:

Author L.U. Ann moved to Colorado from the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two children. Life in Colorado is so much different. In Maryland, you would find her in the garden tending to her vegetables and flowers, sea glass and shark tooth hunting once a week, and enjoying the kids swimming in the backyard. Her life took a drastic change when her family moved to their own “Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my!

She tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior.

At night, you’ll find her begging the kids to go to bed so that she can catch up on the latest book before her sister can. Yes, she is an avid reader who escapes her chaotic but wonderful home to the feisty depths of romance land in search of her newest book boyfriend. Shh, don’t tell her husband.

She is an artist by the grace of God. She worked as a set designer for six years, helping establish a local children's theatre where she was the scenery artist, set, and prop designer. Before that, you would find her covered in paint, so engrossed in painting a mural that time didn't exist. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure.

Destructive Choices is the second book in The Destructive Series. Each book will hit its reader with lots of angst hoping for a happily ever after.
