Guest Book Review: Laura E James - Follow Me Follow You

Reviewed by Tanya Phillips 

You save me and I'll save you...

Victoria Noble has pulled the plug on romance. As director of the number one social networking site, EweSpeak, and single mother to four-year-old Seth, she wrestles with the work-life balance.

Enter Chris Frampton, Hollywood action hero and Victoria's first love. His return from LA has sparked a powder keg of media attention, and with secrets threatening to fuel the fire, he's desperate to escape.

But finding a way forward is never simple. Although his connection with Victoria is as strong as when he was nineteen, has he been adrift too long to know how to move on?

With the risk of them breaking, will either #follow their heart?

Amazon links: Kindle or Paperback

Victoria is a high flyer running her own internet social media company, EweSpeaks, with her sister Juliette.  However even though she has all the luxuries that go alongside this lifestyle she finds life hard as she was abandoned by her husband when her son Seth was only 2 months old.  She is left to bring him up alone and finds it hard to run a company and do this so uses nannies to help.  However the relationship with her son suffers as a consequence and he often says he hates her.  

After one traumatic day she finally admits to her sister how bad the relationship with Seth is and she recognises the need to try to resolve things.  She visits her dad in Weymouth as a starting point hoping he has the answers.   However whilst she is there she comes face to face with an old, now famous, boyfriend that she blames for her outcome in life as he broke her heart.  Chris Frampton is going through a very difficult time himself and is struggling to help his son through it.  He has recently moved back from America to restart his life in Britain.  

The process the main characters go through is difficult with lots of ups and downs and many questions are asked.  

I really enjoyed this book and without giving too much of the story away loved the interaction between the characters and how relationships develop.  I certainly thought hard afterwards about how I speak to my children.  Was a great read and would recommend it.

I'd like to thank Liz at Choc Lit for sending me this eBook and Tanya for reviewing it for the blog.
