Having left an abusive marriage at 45, Lauren can hardly believe that she has found Gabe, a 35 year old blonde buff sex god, their instant chemistry has convinced him that that he wants to change his serial shagging ways and to make what they have found permanent.
Lauren, still reeling from the abuse she has suffered at the hands of her ex husband is not convinced that jumping straight into another marriage is the right thing for her, despite how much she loves Gabe. They have known each other for just 10 short weeks but already they have been through enough drama to last a lifetime. Lauren has once again been beaten and humiliated by her soon to be ex-Husband, Gabe has revealed he was sexually abused by his Step-Mother as a teenager, and Gabe’s ex is threatening to stop him seeing his daughter.
Will Lauren listen to taunts from jealous exes and her own self doubt; or will the love (and lust) Lauren has found in Gabe’s arms be enough for her to let go of her painful past to build a future with Gabe.
He looks at me; his eyes are glistening with tears… Both his hands are pulling at his own hair… He has no shirt on, just jeans and bare feet… I can see the muscles in his arms, chest and abs all clench and tighten as he pulls at his hair… And I fight with myself not to reach out to him….
“I love you Lauren …. I would leave my daughter fatherless and die for you… Never forget that”…
That kills me… If it were possible for my heart to break any more today then that just did it. He has tears on his cheeks and I know he is as broken as I am, he walks towards the door without saying another word… Jo follows him as I slowly sink to my knees….

About the Author
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.
I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked as a classroom assistant/teachers aid.
As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week, when I’m not writing…
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 do not own a pair of white stilettos…
