About the Author

RD Berg lives in the great state of Texas with her three boys who drive her to the brink of insanity most days. She loves to read, write and watch her two favorite shows, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. When she isn’t enthralled with a novel or a gory show, you can find her in the stands loudly cheering on her boys at their basketball and football games. She has three strong beliefs in life; Vanilla cake and Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream should be a major food group, Halloween should be celebrated every month, and Harry Potter’s birthday should be a national holiday.

When I read this synopsis I jumped on the tour. I felt it would be a book easy to connect to because marriage , divorce , kids is such a reality and never easy. I have not been through the struggles Riley has with her marriage BUT drug addiction and abuse have been in my life by way of family members and exes so I have watched it rip through and destroy. I fell for River right from the start , OMG that little boy was special and I was so invested in his growth. Liam was probably my favorite character in the story. Riley was just as I assumed she would be, making dumb choices and although she wanted the right thing she had a hard time pushing through her own walls to get them. The one thing I would have loved , as weird as it may seem , would have been some POV by way of Aaron. You get the story from Riley but to lead up to the major event it would have been nice to have snippets from his mind to alert us to just how intense he was. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time regardless due to his threats and just wondering where and when we would meet up with him. This book had fear , devastation , hope , love , HOTNESS and a very sweet and happy ending. It was a quick read and I enjoyed Liam and River so much !! Riley was plagued with an impossible situation and luckily for her a knight in shining armor rode in by way of River's speech therapist and brought her back to life. Liam not only saved Riley and River but he saved himself by finally finding love again. He was amazing and to boot he plays guitar and sings !! I just cannot say enough about him. LIAM LIAM LIAM LIAM
​Definitely worth the read and I am interested to see what else this author has to offer.

"...you can leave a toxic situation, but the scars that are left behind are almost harder to deal with."

This is one of those novels where the story begins before you even start the first page. The cover of this one....absolutely beautiful. I hate to judge a book by its cover, but I will say that the story inside is just as breathtaking.

Riley Winters is struggling through life after her divorce. She does what a lot of women do and she doubts herself after being a relationship that has damaged her self esteem. She has shut out everyone in an effort to gain control back of her life. That is.. until Liam.

"He is the steady breath that revives my soul when the unrelenting sea of life attempts to drown me."

I think a lot of us can see part of ourselves in Riley Winters. She has hung on too long to a marriage that was slowly sinking her. Depression then grabs hold of her and she goes through a period of self doubt. She slowly works on herself on the inside, in order to move forward with her life that has come to a stand still.

This novel held my attention, right through to the end. Did I see some of it coming? Well, yes. BUT. Who cares? It was all about the journey. You slowly see Riley's character emerge from the darkness. Sure, she makes some mistakes... but who doesn't? She learns from them and turns her life around for the better.

Liam. He is just the perfect book boyfriend. He has his own 'demons', but when he first lays eyes on Riley.... it's done. He knows she may be slightly broken, but he wants to stick around for the long haul.

Thank you R.D. Berg, for this one!

I am going to keep this review short and sweet...

I was intrigued by the book's blurb. I thought for sure this was a book I was going to fall in love with. Unfortunately, it wasn't. Now before you sigh... This isn't a bad book. It actually is a good book, but it wasn't a book that I fell in love with like I had hoped.

The story overall is a good one. I just couldn't focus on it. It moved slow for me. Although the writing is good, it just seemed to be missing something for me.

I was hoping to need some emotional therapy after reading this. However, being the tough cookie I am, I didn't. I am very saddened over this. This story has emotional wreck written all over it. I just didn't receive it like I hoped. However, many others seem to have. It just may be me.

Overall, this is a well written book that I think many will like if not love. Don't necessarily count this book out just because it didn't do it for me. Not every book is for everyone!

I jumped to read this book when I read the blurb for my blog and could not wait. I found myself struggling to finish it. It's not that it is a bad book because it's not. I just felt that Riley could of been a little tougher than what she was. I feel in love with Liam and River both. I think it was to predictable and to drawn out. I think it needed some more turns within the story. Another reader may not see what I do. So please make up your own mind on it.

5 Stages of Riley Winters by RD Berg

3.5* review by Nicole McCurdy

This is one of those stories that had all the prerequisite elements to being a great book. In theory the characters and storyline along with certain dramatic incidents should have produced an exciting and sensual read, but unfortunately what I found was a fairly unconvincing plot along with weak and unengaging characters that tended to use overly flowery and saccharine sweet dialogue, which in turn just seemed to highlight how schmaltzy and cheesy everything was. I love romance, I live for romance but in 5 stages of Riley Winters it was overkill and at times I felt like I was reading a nineteen-eighties Mills and Boon book. It is as though the author used every known cliche in the romance genre and amplified it.
There were parts of this book I just could not get into, others I liked well enough and others that just didn’t make sense. The timeline of events, for one, was much too quick. Our hero Liam is a speech therapist by day and rock star by night, who after only one day of knowing our heroine Riley, decides it is great professional practise to join his new client Riley’s son and her on a family outing. The relationship is harried and never develops fully, there was a ton of potential to prove how strong and resilient Riley was after suffering at the hands of her ex-husband but she came across as rather whiney and self-centred, making a lot of poor choices. Unfortunately it wasn’t just the main characters that felt a little stuffy. The relationship between Riley and her sister didn’t gel either, it felt forced rather than fun and loving. Liam was an okay hero.
