BLOG TOUR: Losing Myself by Victoria J. Brown @bombshellpub @victoriajbrown

Losing Myself
by Victoria J. Brown 
Bombshell Books

A big thank you to Bombshell Books for my spot on this blog tour!  You may recognize this author's name from my review of her book, Holding Myself, which you can find here. Kat is back and dealing with a whole new set of issues!

Since Kat made her decision, everything around her seems to be falling apart. Not only is she dealing with family’s secrets, lies and deceit but the salon, which is opening around the corner, threatens her livelihood.

To make matters worse her relationship with Max is on the rocks. Although her relationships with Max’s mother, her step-mother and her sister have grown stronger, are they strong enough?

Working tirelessly to save her salon and save her relationship with Max, she is battling everyday to stay focused on her future. But what will the future bring?
My Review:

From Holding Myself, we see that Kat has taken the responsibility on of caring for her younger sister after their mom's death.  On top of that, she finds out she's pregnant and has to make some big decisions in her life.  And so we come to Losing Myself as a continuation of her story.

I did find Kat a bit annoying in book one with all the self esteem issues that seems extremely repetitive.  However, that changes here in book 2.  She becomes way more relatable and instead of being annoying with her, I was rooting for her.  Come on life, stop messing with her!  Hasn't she been through enough?!

This is definitely an emotional roller coaster of a read.  Such a nice break from all the thriller reads I've had lately.  Getting lost in someone else's drama is such a nice break from my own day to day dilemmas.  The author is outstanding in bringing forth realistic, every day life issues that we all have to deal with at one point or another, in some form.  

A touching, emotional, realistic follow up that everyone should read to realize they are not alone in the things they have to deal with.  

About the Author:

Victoria J.Brown has always had a passion for writing. When asked at the age of 9 years old, what she wanted to be when she grew up, her reply ‘an author’ was met with a disheartened response, ‘that jobs like that, don’t happen to people like us!’

Luckily, Victoria didn’t listen to this advice and never gave up on her passion.  She continued to write while perusing a career in Marketing after gaining a BA (Hons) in Business and Marketing.

In 2006 her eldest daughter was born and then two years later her 2nd daughter came along. Victoria realised in the midst of the mummy madness, that she’d let her writing dwindle and that nappy-changing, sleepless nights and not being able to go to the toilet in peace could not stop her fulfilling her writing dreams. So when her girls were 3 years old and 18 months old, she decided that sleep was over-rated and enrolled at Teesside University. A year later she proudly left with a MA in Creative Writing, some wonderful friendships and a passion for therapeutic writing. While studying for her MA she was also delighted to win a short-story competition judged by Adele Parks, to which she received publication and mentoring from Adele.

After her MA, Victoria concentrated on writing women’s fiction. She loves writing stories that women can relate to. The Chaos Series grew from her own experience of pregnancy, motherhood and life.

Victoria is also passionate about mental health and likes to write of such issues in her stories. Her dedication to mental health and living life to the full has led her down a spiritual path. Through her learning of spirituality she qualified as a Law of Attraction and NLP Practitioner, which she integrates into her writing. Her inspirational blog includes an A-Z motivational journey with weekly therapeutic creative writing exercises. She has developed this further and will soon launch her inspirational shop. The shop has been created to pass on positivity and love to others … you never know when someone may need to see those messages.

Being accepted by Bombshell Books is a dream come true for Victoria, she hopes that her mantra for giving love always and never giving up will inspire others to follow their dreams and passion.
