The Story of Us Trilogy Continues …
Elizabeth Parker has been found …
Like a falling star she has come down to earth, landing painfully on the debris of a broken dream. What she thought of as love now seems no more than a wish left unfulfilled. Her future lies in the hands of two powerfully possessive men; each desiring her to the point of insanity.
Flawless media mogul Ayden Stone oversees her voyage of sexual awakening, introducing her to new experiences and a secret world behind locked doors, away from prying eyes.
But … is he Prince Charming or merely the great pretender?
With a fighter’s instinct, Dan Rizler continues to box clever; taking his time, waiting for the right moment to strike. He will have his Princess one way or another.
Into this twisted triangle enters Elise Richards; a woman with a past and a passion for revenge: hell hath no fury like Miss. Richards.
This is a modern fairy tale full of romance, secrets and suspense. Elizabeth Parker is about to be caught, held fast by the hand of Fate; but will she be caught out or caught up in an affair of the heart, body and soul?
When nothing else matters … you have to do or die.
After reading Touchstone for Play, the first book in this Trilogy, I was very keen to read this second installment. The first book was very captivating and this one didn't disappoint.
Ayden Stone is an International billionaire and Beth is an English School Teacher. They love each with heart body and soul but they both have demons haunting them and whenever, they think nothing can come between them, something materialises and tear them apart.
Dan is totally deluded about Beth being his Princess and is determined to rekindle something which never existed, regardless of the fact that he is the one responsible for her demons.
Elise is an Estate agent who meets Dan whilst helping him with new accommodation when he was planning to move nearer to Beth in order to carry out his plans. They become friendly with each other and soon find out that they both have something to gain by keeping Beth and Ayden apart. It turns out that Elise has a past with Ayden and she too would stop at nothing to succeed in making her own claim on Ayden! They soon become partners in crime and when Ayden and Beth are out of the country, they initiate plan A which has an adverse effect on Ayden and Beth but backfires for them as well.
Ayden and Beth become closer than ever during their time out of the country. The love they have for each other is like something out of a Fairy Tale and when they are at their happiest, they are pulled apart once more. Will their unconditional love survive this upheaval? Will Dan and Elise succeed in tearing them apart for good?
This installment is as good if not better than the first one. I like the way, things from their past come to light and how they deal with these issues. I admire Beth's strength and the way she deals with an impossible situation where many would have given up. Ayden's devotion is second to none. This book is full of twists and emotions run high. I totally felt what they went through and would recommend this Trilogy to 18 + Romance Lovers. It is very emotional and romantic. The end left me in tears and with fear of the unknown. What can I say? I am a romantic. The good thing is I have the last book and can dive in straightaway.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Ms Jamesson for giving me the opportunity to go on this journey with Beth and Ayden.
About the Author
Seldom does a writer appear out of the mist, fully formed and equipped to introduce the world to their 'perfect' prose. More often than not it has taken years and, in the case of Sydney Jamesson, decades; to come to the point where she can say: "I'm ready. This is it, I'm done!" Now is that time. She has always scribbled things down; in her home is one enormous waste paper basket full of discarded phrases, opening lines and pieces of dialogue that have hit her like lightening in the middle of the night or whilst parked up at a set of traffic lights. She has worked in Insurance, Fashion and in advertising as a Copywriter and Commercial Journalist and loved every minute of it. For the past 15 years she has been an English Teacher. But ... for as long as she can remember she has lived with The Story of Us in her head. The fact Elizabeth Parker is an English teacher should come as no surprise: novelists write, initially, about what they know ... Yet, she confesses, Elizabeth is not her but rather that young, sensitive and naïve woman we all were or still are. So that's her, furiously typing away until the early hours, creating an epic tale that covers an 18 month period, taking three novels to unveil the intricacies of a 21st century fairy tale.
