After one last tryst, Elyce decides she can no longer continue their sexual relationship. For months, Elyce works on her personal growth by losing weight, changing her style, and publishing her first novel set to become a feature film.

Elyce must choose between her first love or her attentive lover.

Jenny's Review

****ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review****

It's been a long time since I've read a book in a day. Nothing have been holding my attention at all. I've been in a reading slum until Stained Glass Shards by Rosemary Rey.

Elyce is a girl who's been in love with her friend, Griffin, a Hollywood actor, sice they met in college. They have carried on a casual affair, at least casual on Griffin end, for quite some time. When Elyce demands more from Griffin and he can't give it to her, she decides to end things and start living for herself. No longer is she the frumpy, overweight, underacheive. In her time apart she emerge as a svelte, best selling author, who is now having dating her agent, Ritter.

In the almost year of Elyce and Griffin separation, they meet again in LA. And now the reader is thrust into a story which is full of passion, manipulations, anger, hate, love...that's just a few of the abundant of emotions I felt while I was reading. I was complete engrossed.

Stained Glass Shared is unique because it's a book within a book. The book Elyce wrote under a pseudonym, is written as fiction but is mostly autobiographical, filling the gaps of the six year relationship between Elyce and Griffin. I don't wanna give away too much but this book is an emotional roller coaster. At times, you don't know who to root for, and that's including Elyce.

As this is my first book by Rosemary, it was unlike anything I've read. When you think one thing is going to happen, there she is throwing in a twist, you had no idea was coming. I literally could not put this book down. I NEEDED to know what would happen next. If you don't pick up this book, you are missing something. It was simply AMAZING!  

About the Author

After years of making little money as a public interest lawyer, Rosemary Rey left practice to make her fantasies come alive on the page. She writes in the Midwest while her three children spend time at school then arrive home to play video games on their Kindles, as her husband looks over forlornly at her typing in front of the blue screen. Rosemary has been reading books for pleasure all her life and started writing short stories for her own pleasure since the age of ten-years-old. After months of thinking about writing a novel, Rosemary self published her first book as a 'before I hit 40' goal.

Rebound was conceived in January of 2014, after she couldn't stop thinking about the characters swirling in her head. In order to justify writing Erotic Suspense instead of her legal practice, Rosemary incorporated legal concepts in her series, so she could tell her loved ones that her active license is still put to good use, but should NEVER be used as legal advice. She hopes you like her first fiction offering, and all the books that were published thereafter.
