New Author Spotlight: JL Baldwin
Every day new indie authors hit the "shelves". Every once in a while one stands out above the others. This first release by self published author JL Baldwin shows promise. Strong plot, great story idea, and a well developed main character that you love to hate. (He's hot, at least he has that going for him.) She put the effort out there, and it shows.
There are minor grammar and editing issues that distracted me some from the story. Not enough that you have to worry, still give it a try. Also the descriptions at times felt a little over the top, like the author was trying too hard. All in all worth the price and noteworthy for a first release. I give it four stars. Take look. :)
What if everything you've ever known and grew up with was suddenly a lie?
When you have faith, and believe that it will work out for the best, what do you have to lose? Nothing because nobody can predict the outcome so it's best to just let it be. I could tell you this tale has a happy ending. But then that would be a lie. That's all I've ever known, are lies.
Fifteen years ago, my family did something terrible. Something that cost my father his life. Nothing prepared me for that one fateful day that I would have to pay for what my family did.
Then he came along. The gorgeous bartender with all his tattoos, muscles and everything else that would make a girl fall to her knees was right there, and he wanted me. Zac was everything I could have wanted. Tall, dark and handsome, swooping in like prince charming...but that wasn’t the case. You see, a hero comes in all kinds of different ways. Zac wasn't your average hero, but he was my hero when I needed him the most. From the moment I met him, I was enraptured. Taken by his soft blue eyes that gripped my soul and didn’t let go.
God help me.
