About the Author: Laura Bradford

Aka Elizabeth Lynn Casey.While spending a rainy afternoon at a friend s house nearly forty years ago, Laura Bradford fell in love with writing over a stack of blank paper, a box of crayons, and a freshly sharpened number two pencil.Those early attempts at the craft had her writing and illustrating stories for young children Wise beyond her years, Laura saved her first writing attempt in a hand decorated shoe box complete with sparkly stickers and moved on to her next idea Her second book O Casey s Wish was so utterly brilliant, she sent it off to a well known New York publishing house at the tender age of ten, confident she was on the verge of becoming the next Don Freeman Corduroy or Shel Silverstein Giving Tree Months later, she received her first form letter rejection.While she wasn t of the mindset to save that first crushing blow for posterity, Laura did save the original copy of this particular literary masterpiece in the event the letter was a mistake Desperate to prove her flexibility as a writer, Laura soon found herself dabbling in jokes for her Girl Scout troop s newsletter , stories of angst a somewhat autobiographical look at her teenage years , movie reviews for the Xavier University Newswire , and countless news and feature articles for newspapers in CT, SC, TN, and MO It wasn t until Laura was home raising children of her own though, that she was finally able to dust off that rainy day dream and bring it back to its original form writing fiction Today, she is a bestselling mystery author with Berkley Prime Crime Penguin Publishing , and an award winning romance author with Harlequin American She lives in New York with her family Oh, and if you meet Laura at a book event in the future, ask her about O Casey s Wish It tends to travel with her everywhere she goes.

    I have to make a better choice for Seth It s my job A better choice she whispered through suddenly clenched teeth Wait a minute I get this now This isn t about finding someone better It s about finding someone healthy, isn t it First I was like, Oh, a book about a woman with MS written by a woman with MS This is going to be great But the hero in this novel is a piece of trash Let s explore.Emily has MS She is an outdoor adventurer and an expert in rock climbing, scuba diving, hiI have to make a better choice for Seth It s my job A better choice she whispered through suddenly clenched teeth Wait a minute I get this now This isn t about finding someone better It s about finding someone healthy, isn t it First I was like, Oh, a book about a woman with MS written by a woman with MS This is going to be great But the hero in this novel is a piece of trash Let s explore.Emily has MS She is an outdoor adventurer and an expert in rock climbing, scuba diving, hiking, kayaking, and mountain climbing She s scared of the future She s resigned to being alone because she doesn t believe any man would want to put up with the burden of having a wife with MS.Mark is raising his four year old Seth on his own after his wife died of cancer.Mark signs up for a hiking class taught by Emily He immediately starts creeping on her body She ends up getting invited along with him and Seth to eat pizza.All is great until she gets some pain Seth had suffered enough for one lifetime.It didn t matter how hot Emily Todd was It didn t matter that her enthusiasm and boundless energy breathed life into Mark s stagnant world All that mattered was Seth.All that mattered was keeping his son from ever reliving the kind of grief that had consumed his young life to this point.Okay, so he finds out she has MS and he completely freaks out He and Seth are supposed to meet her for a rock climbing lesson in the morning and he is a NCNS That s a no call no show, for those of you who ve never worked retail food customer service This shows what a piece of shit he is He doesn t have the decency or spine to call her and tell her he is not coming This should be the end of it.But the foundation Mark volunteers at will get a quarter of a million dollars if they help a small business owner with a disability Mark reveals her medical information to everyone at his work UNETHICAL and shows up at her office not to apologize, not to grovel, not even for romantic purposes, but to USE HER to MAKE MONEY.She calls him on his bullshit and it is very glorious.Next thing I know, they are making out in the back office Yeah Yeah I can t believe it, either Then he convinces her to go on a date with him while his son is at his mother s They go to a barbecue, then go to rock climb, then he takes her back to his place.He tells her they can just watch movies or hang out.Then he seduces her Then, after having sex with her all night, they fall asleep When they wake up the next morning, she tries to share some feelings she has about MS No response from unit For the briefest of moments, Mark s lack of response to what Emily had shared stung ever so slightly She d kept everything to herself for so long it had felt good to know someone else was listening To go from that to a phone call without so much as a squeeze or nod of acknowledgement was disconcerting.Then he tells her, basically, to GTFO and he never wants to see her againMark Is there a problem with Seth No He cast about for the best way to remove the Band Aid her presence had placed across his heart, and finally settled on the tried and true yank method that got it over in one shot There s a problem with US, Emily Right when you think he couldn t be acruel, inhumane, asshole piece of shit, he stops her right before she walks out the door and tries to convince her to let his company help her so that they can get the quarter million dollars Carmen spits on the ground Rarely have I seen this level of shittiness from a romance hero Sure, lots of romance heroes are assholes, but THIS GUY wins some kind of an award or something WELP These two end up together Don t ask me why or how, I would NEVER interact with him in any way, shape or form again, much less MARRY THE FUCKER.And there s this thing where she s like, Oh, I m so honored he wants to fuck me, EVEN THOUGH I have MS Honey, let me tell you something Any single straight man would like to fuck you You are fucking gorgeous Please have higher standards for yourself, PLEASE Wanting to fuck you does not make a man GOOD or KIND or INTERESTED IN LONG TERM in any way Please learn to love yourself So let s recap my main points about the book 1 Mark is a huge piece of shit who takes being an asshole to a new level He is sexually unethical and sexually immoral If you want to have a one night stand, fine If you are not into long term relationships, fine Just tell the other person straight out OK Mark KNOWS Emily has MS He KNOWS she is sensitive and fragile and skittish around men He KNOWS he shouldn t get involved with her because he is incapable of handling another woman with health problems after his wife s death He cannot claim ignorance here.And he fucks her anyway Deliberately seeks her out, initiates kissing, has a cute date with her, lures her into his home, seduces her He could have stopped at ANY POINT Just backed out and said, Look, I can t do this Let me take you home I m sorry I don t know what I was thinking He still would have been a jerk, but at least it would have been understandable and forgivable FUCKING HER and then waking up the next morning and she s pouring her heart out to him and he s basically saying, I don t care, take a hike, I never want to see you again is HEART STOPPINGLY cruel I can t even believe you have a soul levels of cruelty It s some fucked up shit.And the author expects me to believe she ENDS UP with this creep I mean no Not in a thousand years This is like that time I read that romance where the heroine ends up with the boy who tormented her in high school for being fat I mean, NO There s just NO WAY ON EARTH you can get me to believe she not only forgives him for this shit, but wants to spend the rest of her life with him He s trash Complete trash.2 The way he skeeves on her body all the time is really fucking gross Now, sexual attraction is an important and enjoyable part of a relationship, but this dude was just disgusting I felt like he was always viewing her as tits and ass It was giving me the heebie jeebies.He compares her to a toy that he doesn t want taken away He leers at her all the time He thinks crude thoughts about her all the time I m no prude, obviously I read romance and erotica all the time, but this guy was a skeezerOh, I m sure Trust me But lose the towel, okay She paused, a sudden burst of self consciousness making her apprehensive about granting his wish Oh, no, don t go getting all shy on me now Your body is exquisite I could vomit.She s nothingthan a piece of ass to him It s super gross I was grossed out when he was kissing her I was grossed out when he was getting erections around her all the time I was grossed out while he was looking at her breasts and ass all the time I was grossed out by how the talked about her AND I LOVE SMUT But this was creepy There was no kindness behind it, and no I love her as a person behind it, it waslike a Playboy thingAnd I d be a blind fool if I couldn t see how unforgettable your body isThis is part of him trying to win her back ICK.3 Even though Emily and her friend Kate seemed like tough women who could give people dressing downs and frequently did, they both instantly caved and just buy in to whatever this creep is peddling I was hoping for an insightful, deep, touching story that revolved around a heroine with MS Instead I get this cowardly, creepy, sexually immoral guy slinking around and saying, basically, Hey, baby, nice ass UGH.HOW S THE SEX, CARMEN How dare you force me to think about this shitheel having sex Let me give you a taste With determination befitting a Jedi warrior, he forced his eyes from her breasts and allowed them to travel south, down her flat and sexy abdomen to the alluring scrap of fabric that separated him from a heat he craved as he d never craved before. vomiting TL DR Terrible An opportunity to write an AMAZING book shot to shit I m really disappointed Hero from hell If the heroine even had one iota of self esteem she would have told him to fuck off And never slept with him And definitely never married him, ew, gross.ROMANCE CATEGORIES OwnVoices Romance Both author and protagonist have MSContemporary RomanceNon Virgin HeroineWidower HeroDisabled Heroine Kind ofHe s a actually, I have
