REASONS NOT TO FALL IN LOVE by Kirsty Moseley {Review/Excerpt/Giveaway}

By: Kirsty Moseley
Release Date: June 6, 2014
Genre: Romance

Young mum Bronwyn Reynolds is devoted to her little boy Theo, but she's married to a not so devoted husband! Juggling two jobs to make ends meet, Bronwyn's self-esteem is at an all-time low.

Enter Harrison Baxter.

Harrison is confident, flirty and breathtakingly handsome – and everything Bronwyn's husband is not! What's worse is that she knows every sexy thought about him is forbidden, which makes him all the more tempting.

The only woman that ladies' man Harrison has ever wanted is one he can never have. Bronwyn has left her mark on him, and he can't get her out of his mind no matter how hard he tries!

Bronwyn and Harrison have every reason not to fall in love, but are they brave enough to break all the rules?

My name is Kirsty. I was born in Hertfordshire, England. In 2000 I moved to Norfolk, it was there that I met my husband, Lee. Now, what can I say about Lee, apart from everyone should have one? He's my biggest supporter, and I wouldn't be where I am today without his encouragement and endless support. He is my inspiration behind most of my male leads, I always try to bring a little of him in somewhere, be it his kindness, selflessness, or just his ability to make me feel treasured.

In 2005, I was gifted with the birth of my son. He is, and always will be, the best thing I have ever done in my life. As you can probably tell,  I'm a very proud mummy.

I have always been interested in writing, but after the birth of my son I accidentally came across an amateur writing site. After a couple of months of just reading on there, I finally plucked up the courage and posted one of my stories. I was shocked and overwhelmed by the support of readers on there and they gave me the confidence to get where I am today.

In April 2012, I self-published my first novel 'The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window'. And in October 2012 I took the plunge again, publishing my second novel, 'Always You.'

Lastly, if I had to sum myself up in one word, it would probably be 'daydreamer' – but unlike most of my school teachers, I don't necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, I read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….

There was no longer any love between us; hell, we barely even tolerated each other at times. Sometimes I even struggled to remember what it was that I saw in him the first place. Usually I convinced myself that it was his looks that I fell for, though even those had lost their appeal to me because I knew he’d rather be off sleeping with other girls than me. Ours was a marriage of convenience, even though it was inconvenient most of the time. Another reason I was with him was because I didn’t have the energy to find anyone else. I’d been young when we’d gotten together, merely seventeen, and I knew that the dating scene had moved on pretty rapidly since I was last a part of it. In my opinion, I was too old to be single again, so I’d just have to suffer and grin and bear it. Many women went through their lives in an unhappy marriage. I was no different to any of them. Not everyone found their Mr Darcy and lived happily ever after, some people just had to take what they could get and be thankful. Clearly I was one of those people.

Bronwyn is happily married to the love of her life whom she shares a little boy with. All that is true except for the happily married and love of her life part. You see, Bronwyn is stuck in a marriage going nowhere. Her husband has cheated on her and most likely still is. But her family and the people around her believe that she is happy with him. When truthfully the only thing that makes her happy is her little boy, Theo. Then she meets Harrison, her brother in law's coworker. He is practically perfect for her, but she would never cheat on her husband no matter how many times he has cheated on her. So over time, friends is all they will ever be....

I haven't read a Mosely book I didn't like. No matter what each book is about there is always something in it that draws me in and keeps me entertained and interested. But it is the romance that I love most of all. Each book offers up the romance and I would die a happy lady if it was the last book I read. REASONS NOT TO FALL IN LOVE was no different. I happily inhaled and devoured this book quickly. From the moment I started I didn't put it down until I was finished. Of course it is a short story, but I would have gladly stuck with this one well into the night had it been longer.

Like I just mentioned, it is a short story. But I thought the author did a great job all the way around with it. I loved the characters, well most of them, I did not care for Bronwyn's husband. He was a louse that offered up nothing to the marriage. I would have loved to have seen a bit more of Harrison's POV in the story. He most definitely added to the book when it was his turn.

Even though I wasn't crazy about the ending, I still like how Moseley ended it. There is hints of more to come. I really hope that is true, because I would absolutely love to see what happens next for them. 5 Love Sick Stars!
