Review

"I loved this book, I have read only one other book that has effected my life. BUT this one would now be the second, it grabbed a hold of me and I was unable to put it down. It related to everything in my life. It was kind of very scary." ~ Book Worms


What a pleasant surprise, well written Isabelle Peterson .. I loved it.

I saw this book advertised by the author on facebook and decided I would give it a go, I had seen it advertised before and for some reason skipped over it ... well what a mistake that was. ~ Kaylene - Magic Within The Pages


I absolutely loved this book! Once I started I couldn't put it down. This book has some taboo subjects, but Isabelle writes so well that it's so hard to even care! ~ Alissa at Author Stalkers

This is an amazing read - the story of a woman, Elizabeth, who married right out of college and gave everything to her family. Now that her children are all out of the house, she finds that she has lost herself somewhere along the way. Her incredible journey to find inner strength and find herself was the focus of this book. The story is hot and steamy - that makes it a fun read, but what is more intense is her self reflection and growth. "The grass is always greener where you water it" has stuck with me since finishing the book. What she was feeling really hit home for me and I hope that I can learn and grow from her experiences. If you have been married a while and wonder what is out there, this book will cause you pause. I highly recommend it.

A very well written book that is refreshing and has great detail. A fresh look at a 40-something woman that finds her sexual pleasure, instead of the 20-something woman that we've been give. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed those too, but given that there are a good handful of us in the higher age group it is refreshing.

Needing to go find herself, Elizabeth leaves life as she knows it to the other side of the country. To avoid guilt of leaving Elizabeth avoids calls from her husband and her very displeased mother.

Elizabeth learns that she has some strong allies in her decision and feeds off of that. Giving herself a new look and discovering what she's been missing in life, including inside the bedroom. She makes some hard decisions while on her adventure, but they pay off in the end.

I was provided at ARC copy of Ditching the Dream from the author in exchange for an honest review…

Honestly, I really don’t know how to begin. My first response to Isabelle was, "I'm done and I am so broken...I'm crushed...and need more. I connected with this book on so many levels it frightens me! I want to go curl up in the shower and cry."

This book surprised me and totally rocked my world. I was not prepared for my intense connection to Elizabeth and how I felt every emotion of her character. I’m still in a daze. The writing was phenomenal and brilliant.

Elizabeth is a dedicated wife and mother coming to the realization that she doesn’t know who she once her children have grown and moved out. She finds herself feeling empty…just like the beautiful house she lives in. Greg, her husband, is a successful businessman whose marriage to his job is a higher priority than the 20+ year marriage to his wife.

Elizabeth for the first time in her life is breaking free and searching for who she is. Leaving a “Dear John” note for Greg and packing her bags for New York is a pretty big step to take! With an inheritance to help her get settled, she knows she still needs to find a job in the quest to make something of herself. Luck happens to be on her side and she is able to secure a job quickly and moves into the perfect little furnished apartment to call home...for now. Little does she know that between her new job and new home…temptation is unavoidable and she is about to embark on journey she never intended to take!

Kevin, a young Spanish teacher, is her scrumptious neighbor in the building who seems to be around every corner and it is not by coincidence.

I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review.
5 Wonderful, Powerful, " you go girl " stars!!!!

WOW! Honestly when I started reading this book, I was a little scared, I was unsure how it was going to go. I hate leaving bad reviews. And that being said. I loved this book, I have read only one other book that has effected my life. BUT this one would now be the second, it grabbed a hold of me and I was unable to put it down. It related to everything in my life. It was kind of very scary. All accept when she got on a plane and headed to New York to find out who SHE really was.

Elizabeth is in a marriage of 20 some years, and she is unhappy, she is not abused or mistreated, but she is ignored and taken for granted, and sometimes that is just as bad. She finally makes up her mind, and I am sure it was a very hard decision to make. With three kids grown and in college what does she have left? A husband who is rarely home and when he is all he really expects from her is a clean house and supper. Where are the emotions, the love? It is very sad and I feel for her right away.

Things get a little crazy once she lands in New York, she gets a job, gets an apartment AND she gets TWO men pining after her. Damn I wish this would happen to me. But I guess I would have to leave the house then lol.

Jack. Oh Jack. He is an older man a beautiful gorgeous older man that shows "Beth" how it feels to be wanted. Not needed to clean, cook and run errands but really truly wanted for her mind, her body, and her soul.

Kevin. Can you say yummy!! He is 29 years old to her 43 and the chemistry between these two is off the charts. And Kevin lets "Lizzie" take charge, and boy does she need that.
