SIGNED #BOOK #GIVEAWAY - Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes Audrey by Alexandra Bogdanovic
5 WINNERS - Open Worldwide !!
Meeting the man of your dreams, falling in love and getting married. It sounds like every woman’s dream. But what if you suddenly found out that your husband self-identified as and wanted to become a woman? That’s exactly what happened to Connecticut-based reporter Alexandra Bogdanovic. As the daughter of music and television icons, Sonny and Cher, Chastity Bono grew up in the public eye. So it was shocking to people everywhere when she became Chaz. Her decision to “become” a man made headlines around the world, but Bono is not alone. Transgender men and women frequently appear on television talk shows and reality programs to share their stories. In doing so, they inevitably get the attention they seek; although it may not always be the kind of attention they want. While many come forth in an effort to promote tolerance, acceptance and understanding in mainstream society, their decision to live as – or in some cases have surgery to become – the opposite gender often sparks curiosity and visceral reactions born from ignorance. Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes Audrey, a new book from author Alexandra Bogdanovic, tells the other side of the story. Part tragedy, part comedy, part love story, the book tells the story of the author’s real life experience of meeting a man, falling in love, getting married and finding out her husband wanted to become a woman. This book is the story of what happened after she learned the truth.
Our Book ReviewThe author said to buckle up for an emotional ride and that is exactly what you get as the attraction between two gorgeous people sets to spark and ignite. You certainly feel the heat and intensity as you read their journey. I have to say that I am not a massive romance reader as the stories I have read in the past tend to be too shallow, Melissa Foster has changed my thoughts completely. Not only is this hot romance intense and a page turner it has depth to the story, the characters actually have real personalities and believable issues that you can possibly relate to.The story follows the dashing Treat Braden, a wealthy resort owner, and the attractive Max Armstrong, an events manager, who fall heavily in love at first sight, although due to past inner issues cannot freely give themselves and wrongly second guess what each other is thinking or feeling. The grief from loosing his mother when he was younger still haunts Treat and he believes he is never going to allow himself to be hurt like that again. Can Max change all that? Max has also built walls around herself after a verbally and physically past relationship? Can Treat persuade her that he will always love and protect her?Two passionate people, so in love with each other, both wanting to share their passion with each other, can they resolve their issues and let themselves find happiness with each other?I enjoyed the way the author gives the thoughts from both perspectives throughout the story. I have to admit that I would have loved to be part of the Braden family, with the family bond between them all, headed by their father Hal. Yes they have their typical family squabbles but deep down knowing that they are all there for each other no matter what.A thoroughly enjoyable, sensual and visual read. I was completely pulled into their 'will they, won't they' relationship and cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
Another excellent novel from a rising star of the literally world, the research and knowledge of the author shines through and uses his favourite place and characters from Chesapeake.The story revolves around a international tall ships race, following an ancient tea trade route, where the boats have to be replicas from the nineteenth century. When the Americans start researching the history of their ship it takes them on a treasure hunt and they find it takes them on a journey into the old ships route and brings them into conflict with the Chinese authorities.The author style of writing draws and enthralls the reader and you feel as if you are there experiencing all the emotions of all the characters in the situations they face. The tension and suspense that the writer builds up to a crescendo is superb and the adventures and scenarios that are described are first class. The intense relationships which are portrayed in the storyline are excellent and you can relate the feelings to moments in your own life. This vibe you get brings the characters even more to life.This novel has everything a reader needs, romance, thrills, excitement, treasure seeking and the building of relationships between father and son. Another first rate account from one of my favourite authors and look forward to reviewing more of his books.

5 LUCKY WINNERS will each receive a signed book from the authorOpen WorldwideEnding on Thursday 6th March at 11.59pm EST
Almost without his notice, Tom had slipped from childhood through adolescence and then into young adulthood woefully unprepared for that transition. Both his childhood and his adolescence had been hells of isolation and rejection. And there had been no emotional support at home either. His only tranquility had been the wilderness, to which he escaped whenever possible.But this is only the set up for the real hell which was to follow, coming in the guise of a beautiful and seemingly innocent young women named Mary. Schooled in etiquette, God, and discipline, she was equally skillful at secrecy and pretense. And unable to see behind her subtle facades, Tom mistakes her demure reserve for shyness and under that illusion, he tumbles into a deep, undying love, into which inexorably pour all of his pent up needs and desires. The delusion is only broken when Mary suddenly reveals a cold indifference to his emotions. Then upon dispatching him with sudden sly cruelty and consummate betrayal, she immediately vanishes behind a veil of silence.In this explosive coming of age story we are taken down the rabbit hole of unrequited love and rejection, where in the depths of despair, Tom must wrestle with the devil of his darkest emotions and deny that devil his every temptation to commit heinous acts of evil. There is no rape or murder beyond the wild imaginings of Tom, who in the aftermath of Mary's brutality, goes completely psycho, in this nightmarish book of tragic love. In fact, it is almost miraculous that those atrocities do not happen, given the intensity of Tom's rage.In witnessing Tom's struggle, however, we are brought to a better understanding of human sexuality, how people can be driven to violence, and why people sometimes die by suicide. As Tom makes a slow and arduous climb out of his abyss, we learn how to survive heartbreak and emotional abuse. Launching into psychotherapy, he begins the process of peeling back the onion to find his hidden demons. During this painful process he struggles with an inability to forgive himself for becoming a victim, and in equal part, an inability to forgive the ghost of Mary, for her profound cruelty and dishonesty. But with the scepter of suicide ever lurking, it becomes increasingly clear how much his very survival depends on his letting go of his anger and letting go of the past.
This is a book that I will find myself reading again and again, not because I didn't understand it, as it was easy to follow, but because I want to be reminded and guided further. It's only a small book at 98 pages but it is packed with valuable insight. Loving books on a spiritual level I found that I connected with it straight away.The author has used her spiritual skills to guide the reader to truly improve themselves, inside and out, and those around them. She guides you to dig deep and find your own unique 'real you', your Core, who you are meant to be in this life on earth. The book is very easy to understand and follow, reminding the reader of the true values of life. We tend to live our lives rushing from one thing to the next never taking full notice of what we are doing or who we are with. I felt and agreed from reading the authors words that we lack traditional human values we once had, where people respected and looked out for each other and treated each other with pure kindness, exactly how we would want to be treated ourselves. A need for a kinder world and how to play our part is definitely what you will get from reading this.I particularly enjoyed reading about spiritual baggage and how unresolved issues from past lives can be brought into our current life. Certain chapters may jump out to you more where you feel you are lacking and need to improve mostly on. The chapter on Entitlement especially made me think quite hard about how my children are given material things far too easily and how this 'not having to work for it' attitude can be carried into their adult life.Each chapter relates to certain areas to improve on such as Spiritual Baggage, Relationships, Loving Yourself, Universal Responsibility, Judgment to name a few. All are split into three areas 'The Teaching' which explains why the topic is important and how this may be done, 'The Lesson' where the author uses her own related experiences to reiterate the what we need to learn and 'The Learning' to show how we may do this and improve our ways.Reading about the authors close connection we her granddad brought back fond memories of the time I spent with my granddad before he passed and I enjoyed this part too.This is a real thought provoking book that you can not read without making mental notes of improvement and how we can help our universe evolve.
