Breaking Bedrock by Britney King Blog Tour and Guest Review

As a married mother of three, Addison Greyer has always been known for doing the right thing. Hoping to keep it that way, she fought like hell to avoid falling for the mysterious, highly successful, albeit broken man whom the world knows as William Hartman. But what Addison didn't understand was that you can't help who you fall in love with and that it almost never happens the way you think it should.

Unfortunately for Addison, William Hartman and her desire for him continue to occupy her mind every single waking moment of the day. There's something undeniable in the way he makes her feel. From the way he looks at her to the way he so eloquently professes his love and longing via written letters, it suddenly becomes pretty clear that some rules were made to be broken. 

With the two of them separated by a trial, public opinion, and a marriage that seems to be unraveling by the hour, Addison tries to keep it all together as life as she knows it is falling apart. However, as the pressure mounts, Addison soon realizes the price she'll pay to keep everyone else happy.

In this highly anticipated sequel to Bedrock, Addison and William rekindle their torrid, sensual affair through a series of love letters. What remains to be seen is whether their love and desire for one another can sustain them as they attempt to overcome the realities of their broken pasts and build a future together.

Due to heavy subject matter, strong language, and sexual content this book is for mature audiences.

For those of you who prefer it straight up, no chaser: Mama to five. Lover of Life. Writer. Juggler extraordinaire. That just about covers it…
The extended version and in third person no less  : Britney is married to a man she adores (when he isn’t driving her crazy) and is the mother of FIVE amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving her crazy, her best guess is that it’s genetic. In addition, she founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to almost 800 members. Currently, she occupies a job she loves- serving and running Austin Women’s Network. To further prove that she may in fact be certifiably insane, she decided to publish her debut novel entitled, Bedrock in May of 2013. Then and only then, could she consider her training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.
In her free time, you might find Britney running, reading, or spending time utilizing the wonderful venues that make her city great.

Guest Review by Ricky from One Guy and His Book Review Blog

This was exactly what was needed from the first book. It was a good continuation and I am glad that I went straight into it. The book started right where the last one ended. I’ve noticed in book’s that has seconds or thirds that there is a lapse in the time frame. But this didn’t one bit.
Needless to say that in this book we find out more about Addie and her life, even though it seemed at times she was flip flopping back and forth with what she wanted in loving someone. But when you love someone as strong as she does then I can completely understand the problem she was having within her. She knew exactly what she wanted to do with her husband Patrick to say the least. And with her wanting to continue working on her career was an insight to how strong and determined she was in that aspect of her.
In the first book we find out that Patrick was having an affair with his boss and that she was holding it over his head. In this book we get a little bit more insight on what is going on with them. Even though what happened was wrong still something beautiful came out of it.
William is a man that takes what he wants and leaves no prisoners. That man took a hold of Addie heart and would not let it go. He fell for the woman that took his breath away and never looked back, because he found the one thing that made him incredibly happy.
Now I didn’t mention Jessica in my first review but how could I not mention her here. This is the rock that was Addie best friend in college and they stayed close afterwards. Jessica told Addie exactly what she needed to hear even if Addie didn’t want to listen. It caused a little bit of tension between them but that is what a best friend is for to tell you like it is. But their friendship comes out even stronger then what it was to begin with.

Now I am not the type of person to give anything away but you need to read this book. I think the people in this story were good. Even the ones that I just wanted to slap and beat the crap out of. They were there to make the drama a little bit more intense. It surely did that. So in conclusion this book could be considered a HEA, but it also left enough that the book could go on, I was happy with the way the book was written and I give it a honest 4 ½ stars. Well done Britney King.

Guest Review by fellow book lover, Dawn Bush

Breaking Bedrock picks up right where Bedrock left off... While Addison Greyer's husband is off in China on a work assignment she re-enters the workforce and meets the handsome, wealthy William Hartman. The torrid love affair begins with an instantaneous connection in an elevator. With the pursuit of this affair comes consequences for being affiliated with William. Scott Hammons kidnapped and tortured Addison as revenge against William for leaving him on the losing end of a business transaction. Hammons is now out on bail and Addie is in constant fear for her life and the lives of her children. She is also contending with the wrath of her husband, Patrick, who is trying to keep her in a loveless marriage. William cannot just move forward. He fights to get Addison back at any cost. Addison, once again, finds herself faced with difficult decisions. Will she finally allow herself to be happy and truly in love? Read and find out! I really enjoyed the story and the Epilogue!

I don't know what it is about William Hartmann that I love so much, but I do love this man. Much like Addie does too.  This book was so good to me. A perfect conclusion. Don't get me wrong I got pissed at Patrick and Monica, and especially Patrick's mom. But I think the drama rolled out perfectly. The relationships came full course perfectly. If only real life was the same way... I was left with my jaw on the floor with Patrick's mom and what she did.  Not to mention how she doesn't see the wrong she did. I was reading it all and just ready to slap the woman. She needed it. And oh... Oh... Patrick. Oh god. He is such a filthy hypocrite. To sit there and judge Addie and treat her that way, all the while he is having a weekend away with his mistress!! Aaaand bringing her around the boys!! gahhhh!! But Addie is definitely the bigger person because  when Patrick finally agreed to let Addie go, it was like I could take a deep breath. And she's so okay with his situation. I guess I get it. She wasn't in love with him anymore, she had let him go and moved on.. But still. I don't know how I would've reacted. I do absolutely love the letters between Addie and William. I may not like how she pushes him away all the time. But I love his realization he deserves love and he fights for it. Boy does he fight. Totally swoon worthy. I could go on and on about how much I loved this book. Britney did this book good, so so good. Like I said, perfect conclusion.

 I give it 5 hearts.
