Bridge

SYNOPSIS

Mallory Westerman is a full-figured, successful, young business woman living in Yorkshire, England. Though very career minded, she is extremely self-conscious about her ample curves and so her love life tends to pay the price. Concentrating solely on her business, she has almost given up on finding someone to love. That is until she literally trips into the arms of a stranger who becomes her Knight in shining armour. The immediate sexual and romantic spark that blossoms into love and the events that follow, irrevocably change Mallory’s life-path and self-image forever, but only go to prove that the road to true love is never smooth and that things don’t always turn out how you expect…

Reviewed by Jenny

I’m not going to say anything much about the story because firstly I don’t want to give anything away and secondly because I really want readers to experience this the way I did. I want you to feel the ” gasp” moments I did and I don’t want to ruin those surprises in any way. Bridge Over The Atlantic was beautiful, heartfelt story about loving and living, growing and healing and finding happiness. Of moving on, never forgetting but not looking back. Mallory suffers with self esteem issues, she is a voluptuous beauty but doesn’t see past the curves on her body and doesn’t realise how beautiful she is inside and out.  Mallory is strong, yet vulnerable and uses humour as a way to deflect.  Mallory’s voice was warm and funny and at times heartbreaking. There were a couple of times I became frustrated with her but mostly I resonated with her. I got her, I really liked her and she came across as an absolute sweetheart. Life through Mallory’s eyes is quirky and fun. Her internal dialogue will provide many giggles and many tears. The way she expresses herself and the way she reacts to situations will have you falling in love with her. The men in her life couldn’t be more different. Sam, the quiet, sweet, romantic, soulful, gentle man who makes her feel whole. Who gives her the confidence she so sorely lacks and what a beautiful man he was. “I can honestly say that I have never desired any woman more than I desire you right now.” Greg – bruised, blustery, tough on the outside yet so beautiful and loving on the inside. I loved this man.  I loved digging deep and seeing inside this tough Scotsman. Both men brought something different to the story and each would vie for Mallory’s affections in very different ways. “Am I allowed to hug you?” he asked “I think I made a total balls up of the last time I hugged you, you know.” Told in past/present flashback against the backdrop of Yorkshire and Scotland, Bridge Over the Atlantic is told with beauty, emotion and humour, with characters who feel so real, you will end up loving them, caring about them and letting them into your heart. Music is woven wonderfully into this story with a playlist I just adored. Every song was so fitting and enhanced the moment. I’ll say now, better reach for those tissues because this author really does take us on an emotional journey with unexpected twists at every turn that will have you clutching your heart as you immerse yourself in a story that engages and mesmerises the reader with its beauty every step of the way.

REVIEW: ‘Love isn’t finite. There’s no measure to it. It stretches time and space, loops back around, and expands again. Real love, the selfless kind, transcends our own needs but doesn’t leave us poorer…’
