Synopsis

All it took was one night to change the rest of my life.

One night that created irrevocable consequences.

But some consequences aren’t all bad.

They can be amazing…beautiful… Precious.

I willingly accepted those consequences and wrote a new plan for my life. But that plan didn’t include Cameron Argent – the sexy-as-sin tattooed playboy who got under my skin the moment I laid eyes on him. I was headed down a dark and dangerous road where he was concerned and in the end, our relationship was inevitable. Despite our dark secrets, our feelings for each other burned brighter than a thousand stars and left us both naked, vulnerable.

But when my past came rolling back into my life like a Summer storm, I wasn’t sure if his love for me was enough.
Was he prepared to deal with the consequences of a past I couldn’t regret or would he walk away with my beating heart in his hands?

(This is a New Adult Contemporary Romance novel & contains language &adult situations. Not recommended for readers younger than 17)

Amanda’s Review

When you think of consequences most people think bad things, right? This story starts with the best of consequences, a child, and makes you realize that though the action was a mistake sometimes the consequences are the best blessing you could never imagine for yourself.

Tamsyn follows Hayley, a nineteen year old single mum of gorgeous two year old Arianna, through the trials of finding and keeping the right man for both her and Ari. There are many obstacles for Hayley and Cameron including Cam dealing with his own guilt and issues and figuring out his feeling toward Hayley and Ari and about dating a Mum.
I couldn’t help but fall in love with Cam and Gama, Hayley’s grandma whom she lives with, and especially Ari. There are times you want to whack Cam for being so stupid and times that you want to hold him and Hayley through out their discovery of their relationship and their interactions with Ari.

“Mommy, Cam has a tail.”

This scene had me laughing so hard. I wonder if you can guess why a two year old would say this?
The best moment in the whole book, in my opinion, is when Cam punches Kyle, the douche canoe that is Ari’s biological father, when he tells Cam he wants nothing to do with Hayley and especially Ari. He couldn’t have been a bigger hero, to me, in that moment.

I loved this story and it is a definite ‘recommend you read’. It’s also a great novel for single mums because it really showcases the power and responsibility single parents face and how sticking together can make it easier.

Excerpt

A girl walks in, fury written all over her face, and spins around to glare at the guy behind her. Her black hair is tied in a messy bun on top of her head and she’s wearing gray yoga pants with a black tank top. The other students grow silent, engrossed with the scene in the front of the classroom.

“Fuck you, Marcus!” the girl yells. “Don’t call me ever again!”

She turns away from him but he grabs her arm and spins her around. “Baby, please,” he pleads. “Don’t do this. We can work this out. It’s just a misunderstanding.”

“A misunderstanding?” she spits back. “Please, tell me how I can misunderstand catching you and my roommate doing it doggie style in my dorm room! I’d love to see you explain yourself out of this one!”

My eyes grow wide. This looks like an episode out of ‘Jersey Shore’, minus the fake tans.

“I’m sorry, baby,” the guy whines. “It won’t happen again.”

The girl looks at him like he’s completely crazy. “Oh, yes it will. Only this time, you’ll be single to fuck whoever you want, you lying piece of shit!” Her hand lifts and a loud ‘smack’ echoes through the classroom as it makes contact with the guy’s cheek. There’s a collective gasp followed by a round of applause and the guy has no choice but to leave, his wounded pride tucked away in is back pocket. The door closes and the girl takes a dramatic bow. She makes her way towards me and falls into the seat next to mine.

“Can you believe that fucker?” she asks rhetorically. “Sticks his dick into someone else’s hoo-ha and thinks I’ll take him back.” Her chest heaves slightly as she tries to reign in her anger. “And you know what the worst part is?” She looks at me but doesn’t wait for me to answer. “He’s got Limp Dick Syndrome!”

The other students, still listening to her outburst, break into another round of hysterics and soon we’re all laughing. The girl sticks out her hand. “I’m Hannah,” she says. “And we’re going to be the best of friends.”

I smile back, liking her immediately. “Hayley.”

The professor walks in and the noise dies down. Since it is our first class, the professor just goes over the syllabus and class doesn’t last the full hour. I walk out and Hannah steps up to my side, threading her arm through mine. “C’mon, Hayley, let’s go grab coffee. We have an hour off before our photojournalism class,” she says.

“How do you know that’s my next class?”

Her eyes roll. “I looked at your schedule,” she pauses. “And now that I know we’ll be best friends, I’m going to buy you a Latte and tell you all my inappropriate secrets, and what turns me on.”

Oh yes, I definitely like this girl.
