Escape down Under: S.M Phillips
For Jess Townsend, life is about to get complicated.
Following on from her split with Josh two months ago, Jess has thrown herself into her work full throttle, making sure that the one good thing in her life remains the same.
Suddenly she is called into an important meeting at work. Absolutely petrified that she is about to lose her job, she does the only thing she knows how. Panic on the inside and walk through it with her head held high on the outside.
Jess soon discovers she is being offered a once in a lifetime opportunity, but will she take it?
After dealing with an ex who can’t let go and a broody mysterious Adonis who won’t accept no for an answer, maybe the opportunity of an escape has arrived at the perfect time.
What does fate have in store and what obstacles will be thrown her way?
This book really surprised me. I wanted to have a change of reads from the dark side to a little bit lighter. What drew me to this book was the title Escape Down Under. I though oh a book set in Australia, nice change. I am not big on books that are set in countries (I prefer ones set in the states). This said I think it because I can identify with places better other than that it doesn’t matter to me. With Escape Down Under I didn’t feel lost and I could get a picture in my head what it might look like. The book was very well put together and flowed well. You are given just enough of each character’s past that you have a grip of what makes them tick.
Jess I love her strong stick to your guns personality. I don’t mind the female to break some we all know we have that point in us. It was good to see that when Jess breaks, she pulls herself up and moves on from the down fall. Max comes in with the guns blazing not really knowing anything about Jess except that he has to have her. He is a little mysterious and whole lot sexy.
Just a warning Phillips has a cliffhanger that is going to have you screaming!! We all know that is always a selling point for me.
About the Author:
Welcome to the crazy and hectic life that is me… A fun, loving mum of one special little boy, girlfriend (I’m sure it should be wife by now!!) and an overall crazy, happy go lucky girl from England.
I have always had a passion for reading and writing. Wherever I am, my book reader is never far behind along with a mug of coffee.
I found myself wanting to write from a young age, I have quite a few hidden stories on my computer somewhere, maybe I will have to dig them out and play around with them at some point.
I decided to make the very exciting but also very nerve wracking decision to release my debut ‘Escape down under’ at the end of 2013 when the ideas in my head got too strong and just wouldn’t leave me alone.
