[Promo & Review] Purple Rain

Purple Rain Blog Tour
Title: Purple Rain
By: TJ West
Sandy Brooks was a single mom who was raising a young boy with High Functioning Autism. She left her home state, Seattle, Washington and moved to sunny San Diego, California to start a new life for her and her son, Joey. She was determined to make it on her own with the goal of keeping her son happy and well cared for. She may have dated a few men in her days, but wasn’t out to have a man take over her life. She couldn’t trust her relationships to last, because Joey’s feelings were at stake. No one would hurt him. He was her life and was the most important person in it – Until the day she met Quinn Baker – the man who would rock her world.
Quinn Baker was a quiet, maddening loner. Having a past that has haunted him for 17 years he was in no shape to take over his Father’s restaurant, Reds. So much pain and anger was still implanted inside his heart, he wasn’t sure coming back to San Diego would make things better.
Not feeling love or compassion for many years he never would have thought Sandy would be the one who would take over his mind, body and soul. Along with Sandy would be her son, Joey – a boy who would give him a reason to love again


At first I wasn’t sure about Sandy, I just didn’t take well to her in the opening chapter, and I am at a loss as to the reason why. I realise that isn’t very informative, but I have to say as the book went on she grew on me – but it took a while.

Strangely Quinn, who was a obnoxious, swearing ass grew on me instantly. I think the author was better at writing the chapters as Quinn than as Sandy.

Sandy and Quinn are opposites – she is small at 5″ odds and he is 6″, he is an ass (and believe me he is portrayed extraordinary well as being a total jerk. But I still can’t help but connect with him more) and Sandy doesn’t take any off his shit and stands up to him when they first meet.

It a love story that grows like wildfire, and when ex’s came into the mix on both sides, and an estranged mother it’s quite a trying time for their relationship, I was finding myself rooting for them (Sandy & Quinn)

Overall, despite my initial dislike of Sandy, I really enjoyed the story. I loved the chemistry between Sandy and Quinn, how well Quinn takes to Joey and in general the whole plot line.

A few things that bugged were some grammatical errors like “I lied in bed” and ” role my tongue” and some of the sentences read more like a diary, along the lines of –  I went shopping, then made dinner, then went to bed kinda thing – that was just at the start though and it was better.

Still a 4 stars for me though so it all good 🙂

First Book in the Series!
Marty Mayfield fell in love
at the tender age of 16 to Matt Cooper. He was her world until the day he left
to go into the Air Force. From many letters she had written and mailed,
responses from Matt never came. Her world felt destroyed and lonely. After
graduating high school she moved to Paris and lived there for 12 years. During
her years of living there she met the man she thought could replace Matt. Turned
out her years in Paris brought nothing but pain, loss and suffering.
Making a fresh start from her wounded past she
makes her way to San Diego, California where she ends up finding the one person
who had always made her feel whole. Will she be able to get past her scars and
give Matt her whole heart again? Will she be able to forgive him for leaving
her hopeless? Denying her love for him will be a struggle, sexually and
Matt Cooper was the black sheep of his family.
He wanted nothing more than to play music and live outside his father’s
influence within the Air Force. Having no other choice, he took that road and
left the one girl who loved him unconditionally. Regretting his decision for
not writing Marty back, he continued to serve his country. Years later, after
retiring, he started living his dream in San Diego, but the loneliness was
always there. His heart had always been with Marty. He couldn’t get past the
thought of ever living without her. Feeling like he came out of years of a coma
she enters his life again. He felt his love for her immediately and more
stronger than ever. Getting her to trust him again will be a battle, but he was
never going to give up. He was determined to keep her in his life forever.
