Two lives entwined in secrets…

Secrets that threaten to tear them apart before they even begin…

Sophie Valentine was a girl living a privileged life, in the tranquility of Solana Beach until she was forced to move to Brooklyn under questionable conditions.

In a quiet Brooklyn neighborhood, Benjamin Sinclair was a troubled boy, leading a secret life.

When he met Sophie on the steps of his apartment building the day she moved in, he never envisioned how chaotic and turbulent his life would become.

A battle between the forces of good and evil awaits… one that could leave a devastating effect or be the start of new beginnings.

How will it end?

California Dreaming……..more like Ben Dreaming

            What can I say about Heroes and Villains – California Dreaming Book 1? Well, I absolutely loved it. This is first time I have ever read anything written by Stacey Johnston and she definitely did not disappoint me. California Dreaming was a well thought out story and was written exceptionally well. Well done, Stacey, well done. 

            The story starts off from Sophie’s point of view. She reflects on her life in California and how upset she was that her father up and moved her family to Brooklyn. When moving she met four mysterious boys, who she cleverly got to help her and her brother move. But there is one boy, Ben, that caught Sophie’s attention. He was a smart ass which balanced Sophie’s wittiness. There was instant chemistry between the two of them. And when Sophie and Ben hooked up, it was naughty, hot and impulsive all at one. I thought to myself, “Um, they are 18.” I did feel a little dirty reading about 18 years olds having hot sex. But the chemistry was there, so it worked really well. 

            This book had a lot of suspense, that left you wondering what was going to happen next? 

Without giving too much detail away, it is amazing how Stacey was able to intertwined the Sophie and Ben’s connection together. I could not get enough of Sophie and Ben characters. They gave each other the sweetest nicknames which in ways was a little old fashioned, sweet one and my blue-eyed boy. In ways, they were old souls in teenager’s body. 

            This was a great debut novel from Stacey Johnston. I definitely look forward to reading the books to come in this series. 

            My rating is FIVE FABULOUS STARS.

What to tell you about myself??

When I sat down to set about the challenge of what I could say, I found that I didn’t really consider myself to be very interesting at all.

I’ve lived in Western Australia my whole life, only ever leaving the country once. Right now though I reside in a southern suburb close to the beach.

Above everything else I’m a wife and a mother. I’ve been married to a man I believe to be my soul mate for the past nine years. When he came into my life I already had two gorgeous kids, a boy and girl, who he took on as his own without any consideration as to how it would affect his life. During our time together, he has also blessed me with two more gorgeous little girls. My real life also has me working full time as an Office Manager for an Audio Visual Company.  

I grew up in a home with three aunties, two uncles, my younger brother, my father, and my grandparents!! Wow that was more of mouthful than I expected! As you can imagine life in a large family like that was never boring J

As a child I loved creating stories in my head, it was my escape, a place I could go and hide from the world. As I became older, my stories evolved and every time life challenged me, I slipped back into my imaginary world and hid. This didn’t change as I entered adulthood.

I have always been the kind of person who never made things easy for herself, and I spent many years drifting from family member to family member looking for direction. It wasn’t until I was twenty-one when I met a man who would become, what I thought - my future.  Over the next twelve years he was my life, well him, and the two children he blessed me with.

We lost that loving husband, and father to a heart attack when our children were very young, and life as you can imagine became a little rough for a while.

Over the years my stories have given me the sanity to get through many tragic situations.

They’ve given me a world to escape into, one where I can be anything I want.
These stories I’ve created over the years, have always been a coping mechanism that worked for me, and I’ve always wanted to share them.

With the support of my family I have ventured out there, and finally put them down on paper. I hope you love them as much as I do.
