Mason Jackson knows his marriage to Bridget is in trouble. He’s been putting in exhausting hours for months to try to make partner in his accounting firm. He knows that it is putting a strain on his marriage, but he has trouble escaping the memory of the poverty of his childhood. He never wants his wife, or the children they yearn for, to know the struggle that he endured when he can provide a
better life for them. But things are reaching breaking point; he and Bridget are more like roommates than a married couple. He needs to think of a way to get their marriage back on track and what better way than to make Valentine’s Day, Bridget’s favorite holiday of the year, a new start for their marriage? Mason puts in place plans for an elaborate evening designed to surprise Bridget.

Bridget is miserable in her marriage, and often longs for the days when they were dirt poor. They may have struggled financially, but at least she had her husband around. Mason is always working, and Bridget feels that he has chosen his work over her. She’s tried to talk to him about the way she feels, but he doesn’t seem to hear her. He just keeps telling her that once he makes partner then
everything will be all right. But Bridget is sick of Mason forgetting the things that are important to her … like their anniversary a few months ago. She is at the end of her tether and decides that if he forgets Valentine’s Day, her favorite day of the year, then divorce just might be on the cards.

At the end of the day, this couple has only one decision to make: Time or Money?

Heartbreaker Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heartbreaker Blog Hop!

I think we’ve all been exposed to a heartbreaker at one point, whether it was many years ago, or sometimes those we currently love can break our hearts the hardest.

My biggest heartbreak happened when I was eighteen, a long distance relationship that went awry. My heart was broken for many years after. Yes, years. It was a beautiful relationship while it lasted, but as they say, people who are in your past are there for a reason! 🙂

On February 11, I have a contemporary romance coming out titled Time or Money through Bottom Drawer Publications in conjunction with their four-book short story Valentine’s Day collection.

Mason is a man who grew up in poverty. He is driven to make partner in his firm, however, this comes at a price to his marriage.

Bridget, his wife, is miserable in the marriage. She feels that he is married to the job, and not her. She sometimes longs for the days when they were dirt poor, but happy.

Mason is determined to get their relationship back on track, and picks Valentine’s Day to make that happen with a surprise for Bridget. Through a set of circumstances beyond her control, Bridget doesn’t get Mason’s messages, and decides that divorce is in their future.

At the end of the day when they both arrive at home, anger and passions flare, and they both need to decide what is more important:

Time or Money?

Bottom Drawer Publications has been kind enough to offer up two ebooks of this brand new release due out February 11.

REVIEWS:

5 Stars: I Am, Indeed: Emotionally raw and powerful, the resentments and insecurities are well defined, and the argument is one that feels oh so familiar when goals are drastically different. This was a Valentine’s day chock full of ups and downs, highs and lows – truly defining the love sucks, until it doesn’t theme.

4 Stars: The Reading Cafe: TIME OR MONEY is an eye-opening short story that is probably very familiar to many people. Many couples find themselves in a rut-their daily lives taking them forward one day at a time-and in many cases-alone. Carly takes the reader on a very personal but short journey that reveals a lifetime of hurt and tears, when a couple grows apart, if for no other reasons, then to get ahead in the working world.

5 Stars, Elise Marion, author: I loved this story’s take on marriage, and what most romances portray as the happily ever after part. Hey, love is work after you say I do, and I love the reality of a book that portrays such. Love can suck for married people too … until it doesn’t!
