Being born blind, Ken has always lived a sheltered life, thanks to his overprotective mother and older sisters. If it wasn’t for his best friend, Stone, he’d never have any kind of freedom, let alone a life. Twenty-one years old and still living at home, Ken is ready to be independent. When he moves into his own apartment and meets his new neighbor, Cassandra, he knows he’s made the right decision. Ken wants Cassandra, and the feeling seems to be mutual, but he’s worried. Can she accept that he can be everything she needs, or will she let his blindness keep her from taking a chance?

Wonderful book in a wonderful series! Must buy! You will fall in love with these characters

Trish Edmisten’s New Beginnings series is my absolute favorite and was looking forward to this to be released ever since I read the preview for Ken’s story and saw him in other books. I preordered it the second it went up and was beyond excited to see it in my library this morning.
THIS BOOK AND THIS SERIES. I love them so much. They’re so realistic and the dialogue feels authentic and natural and every conversation they have isn’t some poetic monologue. The interpersonal relationships are so REAL and wonderful. And the characters are honest and insightful and I want to be their friends/feel like I am.
I’ve been SO excited for Stone’s story since I started the series and this book made me even more excited and fall more in love with Joss.
Love Cassandra and Ken’s story ❤ Now it’s time to reread the first three and then reread this one!!
The only thing i dislike about this series is the cover-art. I almost passed by this series because of it, I’m such a “judge a book by it’s cover” person but I’m so glad I got pulled in by the book descriptions because this series is SO GOOOOOD

“Joel and Slade have suffered both physically and emotionally after their time in the army, and they are trying their best to cope.” – Standing on His Own (New Beginnings Book 2) by Trish Edmisten

When his best friend decided to join the Army after high school graduation, there was no question Joel would join too. Best friends since kindergarten, the two of them did everything together, and this was no different. A routine mission changed their lives forever. Slade ended up paralyzed while Joel lost his leg. Joel never expected to live with one leg, but he wasn’t going to let it break him. Like he did with everything else, he adapted, and he accepted that he was never going to find love. Women might want to sleep with a war hero, but they sure as hell don’t want to live with and take care of one. That theory proves true until Courtney comes along. Beautiful, independent Courtney with her wicked sense of humor is the perfect woman for Joel. All he has to do is trust her enough to accept that he doesn’t have to stand on his own anymore.

His perfect match

In this second book of the New Beginnings, all the characters from the first book are back, and we get to see more of Joel and his best friend, Slade. Both of them have suffered both physically and emotionally after their time in the army, and they are trying their best to cope. This story centers around Joel and the girl he meets, Courtney. Their first couple of encounters don’t go well, but still, there is something between them, and Joel is determined to pursue a relationship with Courtney. This book delves into PTSD (which both Joel and Slade suffer from) and the difficulties living with it.

Loved this story!

Going into this story after reading the blurb I went into the story expecting one thing, but what I got was completely different! This story was wonderfully written and touched on a subject that is not talked about very often. It was like a breath of fresh air, and I absolutely loved it! There was a twist I just didn’t see coming!
The characters within the story were all great. I loved how they were not perfect, And that they all seemed to have a little secret, I really want to find out what each of their secrets are! Nate and Natalie were a great couple. I really liked how Natalie was so supportive of Nate. The book had many laugh out loud moments for me which was great! I love a book that can make me laugh. It was also quite emotional, made me tear up a couple of times. I could feel Nate’s anxiety through the book, I just wanted to reach inside and tell him that everything was going to be ok!
The book had a very in-depth look into the MMA world. I could see that the author really researched this subject, I may have learned a thing or two myself about the industry. I also really loved that the cover model has a story of his own to tell! I really loved that he is on the cover of this fantastic book.
You shouldn’t feel a need to hide who you are and this story gives hope to others who may find themselves in similar situations. This is a beautiful story of finding your way and finding that person who will be with you through thick and thin, they are always by your side and loving you unconditionally. I can’t wait to read the stories that will come next in this series.

Meet our new author – Angela Gray!

Angela Gray

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? When I was a child. I had always made up games and stories for my friends and me.

How long does it take you to write a book? Depends on the book. I wrote one of my Christmas novellas in two weeks, Chasing Dreams in six months and have also been writing another novel for over a year now.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing? Lots of coffee or lots of wine.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk? I like to write with a T.V show on in the background.

How do your books get published? Through Paper Gold Publishing

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books? Inspiration comes at all different times and through any situation. I do use google a lot for information but another way I get my information is by asking people. I ask people questions about how they feel in situations that had left them heartbroken and what not. I use their answers as feedback to create more realistic characters.

When did you write your first book and how old were you? I was about 29 so almost ten years ago. It was the beginning of a paranormal romance that I’ve always wanted to write. However, I shelved it until I finish writing my current book.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing? I like to travel, go on road trips and socialize with my closest friends and family.

What does your family think of your writing? They like my writing. They are proud of my accomplishments.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books? Weirdly enough, organization. My thoughts were once all over the place not I am able to keep them in line.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite? About five. One of my favorites is part of a paranormal series. She’s young, shy and an extremely insecure human. He’s a five-hundred-year-old, billionaire lycan. They become stranded on an island together. Just the two of them. Humans though are forbidden and she’s far to young anyway.

Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they? Read, write and repeat. Also, listen to people’s feedback. Critics are everywhere and can be used to improve writing. Don’t become offended just listen.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say? I’m new so I don’t hear from them as much as I would like.

Do you like to create books for adults? Yes, I write for a mature audience.

What do you think makes a good story? Relatable characters, mystery, and a good plot. I personally love a forbidden romance.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up? Aside from wanting to be a writer I also want to be a businesswoman.

Any books in the works? Yes. I am working on another romance novel. She lost her memory for the past three years. She wakes in the hospital with heartthrob, famous fiancé and a brand-new baby

What are your plans for the future? I plan to keep putting out more books. I hope to make the bestseller list one day.

Forbidden love – Yes Please! A must-read!

Angela Gray captured my attention from the first page. One question kept going through my mind as I read the book – What happened to Jolie? Angela provides enough hints to that question to keep the pages turning.

Love the word choices and how distinct the voices are for both characters. I also find Jolie very easy to relate to and rooting for her to get better and hoping she will follow her dreams.

The friction at the start of the relationship has me sitting at the edge of my seat hoping to read faster to see how they end up. Love the instant attraction for the forbidden love but being in a motorcycle club, there are no rules so why not?

I enjoy the storyline and how it progresses at the right speed. Definitely a book worth reading over and over again.
