Rotten By J.L. Brooks Blog Tour

Growing up on the outskirts of Las Vegas as the daughter of notorious strip club owner, Stephen Knox, and a mother who abandoned her at birth, life was less than kind to a young Antoinette.

After a failed teenage suicide attempt, Toni hit the road in search of a life free of undeserved cruelty and any resemblance to her past.

Years later, Toni is lost in a dead end marriage and makes a painful confession that sends her back to the one place she always wanted to escape. But can she really right the wrongs that haunt her? Toni soon finds that the only place where things stay the same is in your mind.

When her path crosses with David Stark, childhood playmate turned one night stand, she cannot deny the spike in temperature she feels every time he's near or the scorching dreams that flood her at night.

Digging through the years of heartache, Toni soon finds herself torn between the man she is committed to and the one who has always held her heart. As each layer unfolds before her, she discovers the root cause of her pain. Always believing the source was external, nothing could prepare her for the truth.
Once I saw the cover and read the Synopsis to this book I just HAD to get my hands on it, and I'm so glad I did....
Toni, is put through a lot in her child and teenage years, due to the fact of her father owning a business that people look down upon. She's never had the ability to even have a normal relationship with guys because everyone see's her as some slut, of which she isn't at all. When her world is turned upside down by someone she considered her friend and trusted with something that meant everything to her. She feels lost and takes the easy way out. She hurts herself then runs....
David Stark, was every girls dream. He was going to pro in hockey and, lets face it, women will ride the shit out of those coat tails. He made a mistake that only he wishes he could take back when it comes to Toni. And, having her come back home after all these years, he wants to chance to explain.
Toni hates David with a passion, but there is always something below the surface. As they say when these to finally come together "DAMN ITS HOT". I waited for Toni to find out the truth and when her marriage comes into play, I felt horrible for her. David is always there between them bickering to the make ups, it was simply captivating.
4.5 STARS!!!
