When Addison Greyer, a happily married mother of three, decides to re-enter the workforce, she never once considers that taking a job might unravel everything she thinks to be true about her life—that it would cause her to look deep within and confront fears she didn’t know existed. She couldn’t have foreseen how a chance meeting or a single day can change the course of an entire lifetime.
Like many women, Addison is defined in terms of marriage and motherhood, until she suddenly finds her life turned upside down by her husband’s decision to take a job thousands of miles away. When her tough-as-nails boss offers her an opportunity she can’t refuse, Addie is forced to make difficult choices. Those choices take her further and further out of the carefully crafted fairytale life she has created and lead her into an unknown world where things are anything but black and white: a world where she learns that desire is not only dangerous but deadly. In this world, all bets are off as she is forced to finally confront her past. As her past and present collide, she has to make decisions that for most are unthinkable, decisions that can tear her family apart, and perhaps even have fatal consequences.
Bedrock is a love story designed to showcase how the choices we make ultimately shape our lives. It serves as a reminder that in the end what defines us is not the big events, the monumental occasions. It’s the tiny, seemingly inconsequential moments in between. It’s proof that time passes and we cannot, no matter how hard we try, get it back. Bedrock is a story of love and grief that pretty much sums up the context of the human experience.
***Due to heavy subject matter and sexual content this book is recommended for mature readers. ***

Bedrock is a gem of a book. You look at the cover and you think okay what is this book about because the cover is plain. I have to say that sometimes I do judge a book by the cover and if you do for this one you are going to miss out on the best book ever for 2013. I have a few and this one is on my top 10 list because right from the first page I was hooked and I could not get enough as a matter of fact I needed more.
Can you imagine you are in a marriage you have children and you are in love with your husband. Things are going great until your husband tells you he is taking a job thousand of miles away. At first you are stunned because how can he be so selfish to only think about himself and no one else let alone his children and his wife. But that is okay because as a mother you put your big panties on and you do what you have to do for your family.
Then your boss offers you a job offer you can't refuse. You say yes but what happens after you say yes is scary because your past is about to collide with your future. Everything you worked so hard to hide and keep in check is about to burst open like some crazy ass flood gates and there is no looking back only looking forward. Do you regret the choices you made or make? How do you move on when you have so much guilt? This book has some surprises in it that will have you screaming. If you are a fan of erotica books like 50 Shades of Grey then this is the book for you. Surprise surprise is what awaits you in this little gem of a book!
I'm married to a man I adore (when he isn’t driving me crazy) and am the mother of FIVE amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving me crazy. My best guess is that it’s genetic. In addition, I founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to almost 700 members. But to further prove that I may in fact be certifiably insane, I'm scheduled to publish my debut novel entitled, Bedrock in May of 2013. Then and only then, will I consider my training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.
