    Something Borrowed

    Domestic violence isn't the easiest subject matter to tackle but I think the author did a pretty good job of it in Something Borrowed. She not only portrayed what the heroine, Chloe suffered but also the strength and courage it took for her to not give into despair but fight back in her own way, be her own hero. I loved that aspect of it. This book may be hard for some to read but it is worth it. It's worth the emotional punch. I enjoyed it and definitely recommend it.

    An outstanding read!

    What an outstanding book!!!! I’ve read some romance novels where everything is all tidy and wrapped up in happy ever after and although those books were nice, they just aren’t a Lydia Michaels novel. This author always delivers a powerful REAL story that just grabs your attention and won’t let go. Life is messy and sometimes really difficult. But hopefully in the end it just makes you stronger and that’s something that definitely came across in Something borrowed. Something borrowed is about Trenton and Chloe. They meet under the most difficult circumstances. Chloe has finally been able to leave her abusive husband and Trenton is the man hired to bring her back. I will admit when I started this book I was really afraid I was going to hate Trenton. But he most definitely redeemed himself!! This was a deep emotional book that I absolutely loved!

    Very Powerful Book!

    Something Borrowed tackles a very important serious issue. Domestic abuse is felt by all,the rich,the poor,the highly educated and the dropouts. It doesn’t differentiate between color or religion. This book was very emotional for me. It was gut wrenching and heartbreaking. Especially because children were involved. Even if children are not physically abused doesn’t mean they don’t suffer emotional abuse. They absolutely do! Being witnesses to a parents beating is abuse. I loved Chloe! She was physically abused,mentally abused and her body broken. But not enough to never lose hope and faith in herself that eventually,no matter how long it takes,she would take her children and escape. She is such a strong willed woman with an unbreakable spirit. She embodies heroism,courage and bravery. Even knowing the outcome of any and all failed attempts at rescuing herself and children. She is someone I not only admire but someone I would emulate. She is someone I’d encourage my daughters to be like. Trenton was one fantastic man. No matter his financial situation,no matter his gains,he is a noble righteous man. Who knows right from wrong,even knowing if he chose the wrong his circumstances would change his life for the better. He is a real man who knows that his happiness and convenience doesn’t trump others physical well being. Ms. Michaels wrote one very profound intense book that had me thinking so much about the story and characters long after I finished the book. When a story leaves a lasting impression that’s a book that has impacted me greatly and that’s what talented authors and excellent books should do! While this book is about violence it’s also about not giving up or giving in. It’s about not letting anyone totally break you. It’s about finding your inner spirit and knowing I don’t deserve this. It’s about finding hope,strength and trust in others. Even when the one person in the world that you put your trust in,broke it and deceived you. What I love about Something Borrowed and the rest of the books I’ve read by this very gifted author is that her stories are real life. Not only are they beautiful heartwarming romances and love stories. But they are relatable,believable and happened everyday. They are real issues and real consequences that someone in your life or someone you know has faced and dealt with. Something Borrowed is a beautiful book even though it deals with a very ugly topic. It’s a powerful book,it’s impactful and truly unforgettable!

    A must read!

    As someone who grew up in a household where domestic violence was almost an every day part of life, this book pulled at my heartstrings! Seeing the challenges Chloe went through, and the pain and agony she faced, were heartbreaking. It didn’t make her a weak heroine. It made her one of the strongest heroines we will read about in romance. When she got knocked down, she pulled herself together, and made a life for herself. Even when she thought she couldn’t go any further, with the tiniest bit of help, she overcame her fears, and went for her true love and found her happiness. Trenton. Where do I start with him. He’s kick butt, alpha, and a total hottie, who is putty when it comes to Chloe. From the very start we knew things would be different between them, and what a ride it was. He knew exactly what to say/do, and when it need to be done. He showed her that while she may have thought of herself as weak, she’s strong and independent, and that she can overcome anything. The road these two took wasn’t an easy one, and I enjoyed how much the secondary characters played such a vital role in this book! An eyeopening, heart wrenching story of tragedy, strength, healing, and love that I would definitely recommend!!
