BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I adore MELANIE MORELAND and her books. SANDY was every thing I hoped for and more!!

The BAM boys and the Vested Interest series have been fabulous and the best way to end our time in their world was with SANDY.

She’s the mum each of them needed, has watched them grow and succeed and supported them every step of the way so it was only fitting that they were now looking out for her.
I loved her history and her desire to move on – even though at times she was out of her comfort zone and wasn’t sure if she was taking the right path!

Jordan was exactly what she needed. Though he had been on his own for less time than Sandy, he’d experienced loss and his life had changed and he too needed to move on. Unlike Sandy, he was willing to take that leap of faith without too much prodding but being the gent that he was, he understood her reservations and anxieties.

It was great catching up with the BAM boys and all of their respective others. Seeing how they were the family of choice and what they meant to each other, finding out how their lives were progressing and how they were all moving into the future was a fantastic way to wrap up their series!!!

Definitely recommend you check out this wonderful series if you haven’t already. SANDY gets 5 great big stars from me!!!

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. 
Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.

REVIEW & RECOMMENDATION – Victim of Circumstance by Freya Barker

Title: Victim Of Circumstance
Author: Freya Barker

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 2, 2020
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

They didn’t know each other, but the events of one single day heralded a pivotal change that would alter their lives forever.
Almost two decades spent locked away in a dark, dank cell, Gray Bennet isn’t used to the sun, the sounds, the scents.
It’s overwhelming.
Each year Robin Bishop returns, and while everyone around her is solemn, she lifts her face to the sun and celebrates her freedom.
It’s liberating.
He sees her.
She stands out in the grieving crowd—her head thrown back, her face bright with contentment—like a beacon offering to guide him into the light.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

FREYA BARKER never fails to pull at all of my emotions when I read her books.

VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCE was a little different from Ms B’s series in that this was a standalone in a multi author series but that didn’t in any way alter from the impact this book had in any way!!

Gray Bennet broke my heart… honestly, I loved his character. Locked up for nearly twenty years I totally got why he did what he did – hell, in his position there’s a good chance I’d do the same thing myself in grief and anger….
Free after all these years, he’s got an uncertain future ahead of him and on a trip to New York to remember and honour his sister he sees a woman who catches his interest…. he never thought for a second that the trip or the woman would be anything but a moment in time, and not something that has the potential to change his life!!!

Robin Bishop made the same trip as Gray but for very different reasons and it’s those reasons that make her the strong, independent woman that she is. She’s got her own story, and secrets, and I loved that she embraced life the way she did. She was just the spirit and light that Gray needed to help him move forward and begin to really live again.

I don’t know if it’s that her characters are that bit older, with their share of life experience, heartbreak, successes and disappointment that I can relate to or if it’s her fabulous way of making these ‘people’ feel real but whatever it is Freya’s main and supporting cast are likeable, relatable and, for me, you can ‘see’ what is being played out in the story as you read through the book.

I honestly LOVED VoC and it is a definite 5* recommended read for me.
Now I just need to read the others in the series!


USA Today bestselling author Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; she creates characters who are perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills in their lives.
Recipient of the ReadFREE.ly 2019 Best Book We’ve Read All Year Award for “Covering Ollie, the 2015 RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for Best First Book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the 2017 Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
