Jolie Mae Miller is celebrating the release of her second book The Unlikely Samaritan.
Jolie is a fabulous woman who managed to weave real life into what some what some might consider an unlikely scenario and make it all seem real. I read her first book, The Good Samaritan and was pleasantly surprised by her storytelling. I know I have a lot of sweet romance readers who follow me and this is definitely not a book for those readers. But I really enjoyed it. The sex scenes were part of consensual relationships and made sense within the story, instead of being just a gratuitous addition. All of Jolie’s characters are realistically fleshed out and easy to care for…and hate. I can’t wait to see what happens to to them in the next installment.
It’s been two months since he died—today is Valentine’s Day. Two months that I haven’t taken a breath. I’m a walking zombie who is barely existing. This is a day couples are happy. They’re excited about young love, reminiscing about old love. I hate this day. It just reminds me of how circumstances took my happiness away. Alcohol ruined a once, good husband and father. The kids are suffering, and I know it. I try to be a relevant influence in their lives right now, but even they know: I’m a failure. Every time my beautiful daughter, Hope, looks at me, she has this look in her eyes: desperation. She needs me to be the mom but reality is, we’ve had a role reversal. At only ten-years old, she has taken on the traditional mom role, making breakfast and packing their lunches. Oftentimes for dinner, I’m comatose and she makes us grilled cheese sandwiches. Yep, I totally suck.
