ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Kay Lindy is a suspense romance writer. Her first novel, Fearing Love, was released in September, 2015. Lindy is passionate about writing characters who are strong independent women and are their own heroines.
Kay is the mother of four girls. Each of her daughters has inspired her to follow her own dream. "My young ladies are so full of passion and spirit. I am always there to support their dreams and aspirations.This action of love is what made me realize I was not living up to the same standards I was teaching my girls; to follow their dreams. So I began to write. Fearing Love is a product of my passion."
Jessica had every right to fear love based upon her past and what she is fighting in the present. They say people come into your life at the most unexpected time and I truly believe this is where Logan came from. Jessica feared her ex, Brandon and was still haunted by him when she meets Logan through her sister Roxy and boyfriend. From the beginning, Logan takes to Jessica and wants to be a friend although it appears she is crazy when in reality she is trying to protect her heart and save her life.
This book is not for the gentle readers, you will endure some sensitive topics regarding abuse; however, the author does an amazing job portraying the story as if we are the ones experiencing this at the hands of the monster, Brandon or the feels we know Jessica is fighting when it comes to Logan. This just goes to show that no matter how bad you had or have it, that there is someone out there who will love you for you and only you.
You'll laugh, your cry, you will want to torture Brandon and you will want to squeeze Logan for being what a man should be for a women (best friend, lover and your soul mate).
You may fear love at some point in your life, but you learn from your past and mistakes along the way to become that better person and to have that happy life we all yearn for. Amazing read!
