When Addison Greyer, a happily married mother of three, decides to re-enter the workforce, she never once considers that taking a job might unravel everything she thinks to be true about her life—that it would cause her to look deep within and confront fears she didn't know existed. She couldn't have foreseen how a chance meeting or a single day can change the course of an entire lifetime.

Like many women, Addison is defined in terms of marriage and motherhood, until she suddenly finds her life turned upside down by her husband’s decision to take a job thousands of miles away. When her tough-as-nails boss offers her an opportunity she can’t refuse, Addie is forced to make difficult choices. Those choices take her further and further out of the carefully crafted fairytale life she has created and lead her into an unknown world where things are anything but black and white: a world where she learns that desire is not only dangerous but deadly. In this world, all bets are off as she is forced to finally confront her past. As her past and present collide, she has to make decisions that for most are unthinkable, decisions that can tear her family apart, and perhaps even have fatal consequences.

Bedrock is a love story designed to showcase how the choices we make ultimately shape our lives. It serves as a reminder that in the end what defines us is not the big events, the monumental occasions. It’s the tiny, seemingly inconsequential moments in between. It’s proof that time passes and we cannot, no matter how hard we try, get it back. Bedrock is a story of love and grief that pretty much sums up the context of the human experience.

*Due to heavy subject matter and sexual content this book is recommended for mature readers.

My Review:

Bedrock is an absolute jewel of a story. The adrenaline is still pumping and my thoughts swirling!

This was a story that just grabbed you at chapter 1 and if you survive it, you are on your way to an amazing read.

Intelligently written story of choices and the consequences of those choices. All choices have consequences, some good, some bad.  

Bedrock is a roller coaster of emotions. Lot's of twists and turns. Every chapter a page turner. Every page a WOW factor.

Addison has her life very carefully planned out. She wants a loving husband, children, and a happy life. Coming from a home life less than stellar, she is very goal oriented in what she perceives to be her dreams. 


Addison meets Patrick in college. He is everything she wants in a partner and they immediately hit it off. Patrick is also very focused on what he wants as life goals.


They are blissful. The relationship has many ups and downs all very realistically written, leading them to marriage. All is happy and life goals achieved, or are they?

Nothing in life is perfect and Addie soon discovers she is not as happy as she had hoped to be. With the birth of her first baby who is colicky, Patrick's dominating personality in wanting Addie to be a stay a home wife and mother, dissatisfaction in herself and loss of career, Addie becomes very disillusioned. Not what she thought her life would be.

Patrick on the other hand is very happy. Career is going well, Addie is home raising the children, ideal life in his minds eye, or is it? We shall soon discover, not so much on his part either.

But they do love each other, you definitely get a feel for the chemistry these two have. They want things to work and they want to be happy.

Addie decides to look for a job, quietly. 

Enter William. A handsome and powerful man she meets after getting stuck in an elevator. And something very surprising happens while stuck in that elevator. It is at this point the story really takes off.


There are so many choices for all three of them. All leading to a very climatic and surprising ending in the story and with even more choices. A bit of a cliffie ending  but no worries. I checked with the author and she is writing the follow up as we speak to be released in October. I personally have not had my fill of Addie, Patrick, and William.

Bedrock is not an easy story to review. There were so many levels in the story happening, though seamlessly and well written out that it would be very easy to give away spoilers. I definitely don't want to do that. I want you to read it and tell me how much you love it too!

Very powerfully written and engaging. You will be very drawn in and very pleased with this gem of a story.

Absolutely loved this story and will forever be stalking the author! Review will also be posted on my Loved These shelf on Goodreads.

Author Bio:

I'm married to a man I adore (when he isn’t driving me crazy) and am the mother of FIVE amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving me crazy. My best guess is that it’s genetic. In addition, I founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to almost 700 members. But to further prove that I may in fact be certifiably insane, I'm scheduled to publish my debut novel entitled, Bedrock in May of 2013. Then and only then, will I consider my training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.
