Book Description

Amazon Australia #1 Bestseller!

She betrayed him and left him to be with another. Now that she’s alone again, nothing is going to stop him from coming for her.

Australian media tycoon Jake Formosa does not believe in forgiving…or forgetting. So when he discovers that Amanda — the woman who once broke his heart — is newly widowed, he immediately enacts his revenge.  Jake is intent on making Amanda remember him, and making her suffer for what she did. He will leave her broken and alone, and finally have his closure. 

But Amanda is not the sweet girl that Jake remembers, and her life is far from perfect. As the web of lies surrounding her begins to unravel, Jake finds himself once again ensnared. Can he learn to overlook the past and risk his heart again?


'The story had a lot of edgy moments that just did it for me. I mean talk about hot sex, hot making out scenes and definitely hot everything else. I am truly a number one fan of Montgomery.' — Dedicated Readers

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous read! April 5, 2014

Well, I'm glad I ignored the low ratings for this book and read it on the recommendation of a friend. I was thoroughly enthralled by the plot line and gripped by the questions the author raised. There was so much going on.
I'm not going to give away any plot spoilers, because discovering the reasons why things happened the way they did was part of the enjoyment for me.
Now, having said that I disagree with the low ratings that a couple of the reviewers have given this book, I must agree that the hero turning up at Amanda's husband's funeral did seem rather 'off' at surface glance. However, this said, he did step in and save her from an attack at said funeral which was heroic of him, especially when she was so despised in the eyes of society at that point. I'm not sure that the other reviewers actually 'got' Jake's level of pain. Mm, he was pretty caustic with some of his remarks to the heroine when she was really at a low point, but that was his defence mechanism. I got that. His introspection allowed me to see that he really wasn't a nasty type - in fact he did some soul-searching because of his behaviour - and his character grew because of it. I think the author made it really bad at points and that just made the really good to come extra special. All up, I think Jake was a very strong character, who had really been torn apart and devastated in fact by his break up with Amanda, and he still loved her (but was afraid of that emotion when he believed her to be the sort of woman who would take advantage of that), but didn't want to love her. But...despite all that, he really was there when she needed him and his belief in her allowed her ultimately to believe in herself.
Amanda...Wow, didn't the author put her through the wringer.

4.0 out of 5 stars HLB Reviews Echoes of the Heart April 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was a little worried when I picked up this book, mainly because the book kind of starts off with a funeral, the funeral of Amanda’s husband. The whole thing sounded so callous, Amanda’s ex showing up at the funeral of her husband, out for revenge? Thankfully, everything was not as it seems. As it turns out, Amanda’s marriage, well not really what one would consider a real marriage in any sense of the word. So it wasn’t like Jake sounds up to rub salt into Amanda’s broken heart over her dead husband, if anything her husband being dead must have been more of a relief than anything else.

I felt bad for Amanda, I really did. It turned out her husband was a bit on the abusive side, and she married him to make sure that someone she loved would be taken care. Basically she gave up her life in order to make sure someone else had a good life, it was definitely an honorable thing to do. I don’t think she ever anticipated it turning out the way it did though. More than that, the guy Amanda did love, Jake, well their whole relationship basically blew up due to misunderstandings and some mingling by outside forces.

Jake, well I didn’t really bond to him all that much, especially in the beginning of the book, Jake came off as such an ass. I mean he approaches his ex at a funeral, completely inappropriate and then propositions her. Later on, he goes on to basically put a price on her in bed, offering her money that she desperately needed if she agrees to sleep with him for a month. She’s clearly in tear, completely fallen apart, beyond unhealthy, and he just can’t help but to bring her down to feeling like nothing. It was kinda hard to read. Thankfully things kind of turn around as the book progresses.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad April 4, 2014

Well, there is the whole double misunderstanding, so both H and h hurt each other without any explanations. It might be old, no cell phones to call and find out? No internet to see what is going on in the other's life? They had this fling, she didn't know he was rich, and he was her first, they fall in love, then they both think the other burned each other. She marries another rich jerk to cover for rich guy #2 and to pay for her aunt's medical bills. He thinks she is a gold digger and marries an old exgirlfriend, so the h thinks she lost it for a fling. So there is the double cross for both. He is mean at first but figures it out, and she finally tells him the truth. I just thought the writing was really overflowing and effusive, a little repetitive. There is a HEA, so....

More About the Author

Alyssa grew up in Central Queensland, Australia, the youngest of five children.

After school, she studied Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Queensland. During her days as a student, and also upon graduation, she moon-lighted in restaurants as a professional pianist.

Her first Speech Pathology job took her to the Hunter Valley, New South Wales. Then, the lure of travelling the world called, and she left her profession for 18 months to become an international flight attendant for Qantas Airways. The excitement of travelling to exotic locations on different continents was fabulous and one she enjoyed...until she met her soul mate! Romance became the priority over travelling. Given that most of the time Alyssa was on one side of the world and her husband, an international pilot, was on the other, it was time to go back to Speech Pathology, the other profession she loves!

Now, still very happily married and three wonderful children later, Alyssa has obtained a Masters Degree in Science and continues to work in her busy private Speech Pathology practice. An avid reader of romance since her late teens, she began writing romances in the evenings when the birth of her twins kept her at home as a full-time mother.

Apart from her writing and work, Alyssa's favourite pastimes include cheering her very sporty children on from the sidelines, travelling with the family, reading, entertaining, gardening and playing tennis. She and her family live south of Sydney on a five acre property in the hills that they share with a dog, three horses, seven goats, numerous chickens and visits from deer, wallabies, echidnas and beautiful native birds.

Alyssa also pens historical romances under the author name, Alyssa James. Her first historical title was a medieval romance titled "Knight of Her Heart".
