She’s always had a love for the outdoors, and when the city isn’t buried under snow, she can be found hiking, fishing, camping or lying on the beach. She’s a sucker for off-color humor, but holds a sweet spot for sick and twisted horror films. When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up in bed with her kindle, diving into a steamy romance novel and falling in love with the latest book boyfriend.

From the moment Liberty literally ran me down on the beach, my life was forever changed.  When she opened her eyes and looked into mine it was like she saw me, all of me.  Regardless of the pain in my past this woman gave me peace and she was the piece that made me whole.  Liberty was now my wife the light to my darkness and the joy that I found each day!  Our prayers had been answered, we were finally becoming parents.  So when the doctor said twins needless to say, I’m in shock.  Life is never as you expect it to be, there are always times that seem perfect and some that you don’t know if you will survive or not.  Even during this time there is always the assurance of the love that Liberty and I share.  With that commitment we can withstand anything even the darkest hours and problems that a couple faces.  When Liberty finds an abnormality on her breast, the doctor assures us there is nothing to worry about.  She is pregnant and now there may be something happening to her that we have no control over.  You will laugh, cry then do it all over again as you read this heartwarming love story. Hero –Shayne Thompson: 5 stars Heroine –Liberty Thompson: 5 stars Steam: 5 stars  Plot: 5 stars  Cliffhanger: No Would I recommend this book: Yes! Bittersweet Catastrophe is Ms. Mayer’s transition novella and is told from Shayne’s point of view.  I loved this book and the beautiful story that she weaves about love, family and happily ever after.  Would I recommend this author: Yes! This is a must read author, starting with Book 1 in the Second Chances series. The final book, Silent Repercussions will finish the series.   ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

OMG Maureen Mayer knows how to pull every emotion out of you in her stories. I swear I went from laughing one moment, to fanning my myself the next, and then I’d be tearing up. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and plowed through the story in just a few hours. I seriously couldn’t put it down. Shane and Liberty have been through a lot together but they’re now happily married. They now have new challenges to face together. Some are exciting and some are downright scary. I loved getting a chance to see them as a married couple and how everyone interacts after book 2. These 2 have grown a lot since they met each other. Of course they’re not perfect which only makes them feel more real. It’s easy to believe they are real people living real lives. The story line was intense and emotional but also sweet. I definitely teared up several times and I really felt connected to the characters. I was totally absorbed in their story. If you haven’t read this series, it is a must read. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. 5 out of 5 stars!

This book should come with a warning label or a pack of tissue. Trust me I was booger crying and it takes a lot to make that happen. Maureen had an amazing gift that allows her readers to not only feel her characters emotions but to feel a part of the story.
