KATHRYN GRAYSON has it all—a beautiful husband, new baby, and a life most women would dream of. But after putting her career on hold for her family, Kathryn sets out to reclaim the woman she once was.
When Kathryn meets her new boss, ALEXANDER ASHER, Manhattan playboy and heir to his family’s fortune, their relationship is heated… and not in a good way. The two are at odds, playing a cat-and-mouse game that has Kathryn pouncing.
Kathryn seeks the comfort of her husband, GABRIEL MONROE, an up-and-coming attorney who seems to have less and less time for his wife as his career takes flight, leaving her dreaming about the days when their love story was a fairy tale.
After a heated argument, a box of Twinkies and a very elaborate display of white roses, Kathryn and Asher call a truce. She unravels a deeper side of him, and they develop a fierce connection that leaves Kathryn wondering what is appropriate… and what is not.
When Kathryn becomes suspicious of Gabriel’s activities, she finds herself alone and far away from home with the charismatic Asher. After a night of drama, honesty, and pure eroticism, Kathryn’s will to stay away from Asher is tempted like never before.
In a battle of self-discovery, Kathryn must choose between them. Both men are devastatingly broken by her actions—and she can only fix one of them. But when she makes her choice, will he even want her after all that’s happened?
I love taking a realistic look at relationships. They can be passionate and romantic and then they can be boring and mundane and even difficult and trying. A relationship isn't just about the wild beginning but the journey it takes. The book tells the story of three different relationships. Kathryn and Gabriel when they fell in-love, Kathryn and Gabriel's relationship today and Kathryn's friendship with her Alexander Asher.
So many people say "cheating is a deal breaker." I am one of them. I get it.
Now think about this. Take your #1 book boyfriend. I am going to use Kellen Kyle from Thoughtless. Now, imagine he is staring in front of you and he wants you to leave the world you know behind and go with him. Would you?
The book is imagined in a way that the reader has to stop and ask themselves "what would I do?" You literally can not turn the page without asking yourself that question. It is my favorite part of talking to readers about the book. I love to know what their choice would be.
I am #TeamAsher all the way. (Yes, I am trying to make that a thing!)
Pure Abandon is a journey - Kathryn's Journey. We all have an element of our lives that feels unfulfilled. It's human nature. Kathryn is on a quest to reclaim the woman she thought she was going to be, but that life comes at a cost.
