Shrinking Violet cover


From the time we’re old enough to understand the word, we’re taught to forgive those who wrong us, so what do you do when the one person you can’t forgive is yourself?

For Cassidy Ashworth, it’s a question that haunts her. Forgiveness has become a foreign concept. Self-loathing is something she’s much more familiar with. Convinced that she doesn’t deserve happiness, Cassidy is determined to spend every day trying to make up for the wrong she’s done. But no amount of repenting for the past will ever convince her that she’s worthy of a future with Carson Langford.

Raised in the foster system, Carson has always been a throwaway kid. He knows firsthand just how cruel life can be, how easy it is for people to prey on the weak, and there’s nothing Carson detests more than a bully. So focused on his self-imposed role of protector, he never counted on the beautiful blonde with the haunted eyes to stumble into his life and shake up his world.

Despite her reluctance, Carson is determined to have Cassidy in his life, but once the truth of her past comes to light, the question is…will he still want to keep her?

My Review

Cassidy Ashworth you meet in Scattered Colors which I haven’t got to read yet, but you don’t have to read it first to understand this book. Let me just say I loved this book!

Cassidy lives a life full of regret. The word forgiveness isn’t in her vocabulary. She reminds herself daily of all the bad things she did in her past and can’t seem to forgive herself for any of them. Love isn’t something she thinks she deserves. Love is a special gift and to Cassidy she isn’t worthy of such a thing due to her past. Just when she has given up all hope on herself Carson Langford comes riding into her life!

Carson <—- sweet lawd!! Can you say SWOON?? He will quickly become a book boyfriend that we all talk about and love. He’s a huge protector and he loves kids. <—- how could you not love that? Carson quickly falls for Cassidy, but it won’t be easy tearing down that giant wall that she has built around her heart.

Just when these two get closer will Cassidy’s past come back to haunt them?  If Carson finds out will he feel the same way after, or will he walk away from it all? Can Cassidy ever forgive herself? I don’t want to give anything away. You will understand it all as soon as you start reading.

You have to go one click this book now! It’s an amazing must read of 2015!

These characters tugged at my heart and made me read this book straight through until the end. I can’t wait to see what else Jessica has in store for all of us to read next.

I give it 5 HUGE shiny gold stars!! Go one click and swoon over Carson NOW!!

BrandingBorn and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
