No one said motherhood or marriage would be easy.
But the high-powered job didn’t quite factor into the equation.
Nor did the attractive boss in dire need of a friendly shoulder to cry on…
***Real emotion. Real life. Real love. This is NOT a glossy love story. But if you’re looking for a romance read that will rattle you… characters that will change you… and love that will last in your mind long after you’re finished… THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU.***
CLIMBING THE WALLS
Kris fell, head over heels over hormones, for the damaged b*tch who became his power-woman sex-goddess wife.
All Nicole wants is to be a better mother, and a wife more worthy of the husband she loves with every fibre of her body, but she is constantly yanked away by her job and her overbearing boss Darren Hart.
But Darren has marital problems of his own – and, when he confides in her, Nicole realises just how easily a happy marriage can crumble.
…Can she keep her own from doing the same?
Told from both points of view, “Climbing The Walls” explores the fibres that hold a marriage together – love, trust, forgiveness… and of course, the earth-shattering sex that will not be denied.
Targeted Age Group:: 18+
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My books are not the typical kind of romance. My themes are simple: RELATIONSHIPS. MARRIAGE. SEX. INFIDELITY. INSECURITY.
It’s about “After the ‘I Do’ ”… no one rides off into the sunset at the end of one of my novels; sorry. A marriage is not a happy ending; it’s a beginning of so much more to come.
I believe that these kind of stories — "real-life romance" –need to be told.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main characters have been with me for over 15 years now — glimpses of them emerge and haunt me for months on end, and then they go quiet for a year or more. They feel entirely real to me, I've done very little "creating" or "coming up" as they just kind of exist as is.
What is it, that I really saw there? What was that horror picture show really telling me? Was this the first time, or the fiftieth?
How could she not care about what our children think? Nikita is brilliant and precocious, and Khailam is highly impressionable. Did she really expect them to wake up in the morning and see Mommy’s boss there, and not ask questions?
And still, there’s no emotion. I know I should be feeling this. All of it. The same emotions of Friday night but amplified to a zillion times – outrage, anger, frustration, disappointment, sorrow… all of them. I know I should be feeling all of this.
But no. Kris has questions. Memories of J.J.’s words. Memories of thoughts, or past events that had gone by. The encompassment of shit that makes up his life, his marriage. But no emotion.
I am sitting in my car, going down the highway at a hundred and two miles an hour, and thinking, feeling nothing.
It’s a refreshing feeling.
I don’t know where I’m going because I have nowhere to go.
I don’t know what I’m going to do. But in the name of God, she will not get my children.
I will see to it, that she never sets hands on my children.
Hasn’t she done enough damage?
—Daddy! Daddy, wait!
Daddy didn’t wait, couldn’t wait. Daddy had to step out of the fire before he burned everyone in it, Kiki included.
Daddy had to get the hell out of there before his eye sockets burned out and his head exploded.
Daddy had to get the hell out of there before he bludgeoned Nicole to death with Darren’s dead body.
