Book Thirty-Three of 2014: THE LOVE OF MY (OTHER) LIFE by Traci L. Slatton


What worlds would you move to be with your soulmate? 
Painter Tessa Barnum is struggling. Her husband left, she’s broke, about to be evicted and has made some serious missteps in her career. When scruffy Brian Tennyson explodes into her life, claiming to be from an alternate universe, Tessa thinks he’s a crazy vagabond ― albeit one with mysterious and undeniable appeal. 
Then he informs her that in his world, they’re married. 
Tessa’s universe is turned upside down as the truth of love and loss, victory and humiliation, and second chances comes back to her. She has to choose love over logic to reach that state of anticipation where miracles unfold.
The secret to her own life was always in her heart.

First, let me get this out of the way; this book IS NOT an erotica. You may find the cover misleading (I did at first), but the book is nowhere near that. The reason for the cover looking like that is because the main heroine posed nude for some paintings. Also, if you look at it symbolically, Tessa is stripped to her barest form to realize herself. But, I’m getting ahead of myself.

I am in love with this book. It is an elegant piece of work about acceptance and taking charge of one’s life. There is humor, romance, and a dash of science fiction. Each aspect is balanced beautifully to a point where you are left with an exquisite piece. I’m serious, I think this book is art.

I could relate completely with Tessa. She’s is compassionate and passionate. She wants more for other people to the point that she ignores her own needs. It isn’t until kooky and lovable Dr. Brian Tennyson appears in her life, as a hobo no less, that her world is twisted and formed.

It’s a book about rediscovery. Rediscovering yourself after a great loss. Rediscovering yourself after constant mistakes. It’s a book about taking smart chances. It’s inspirational. I feel inspired to write more and become the person I’ve always dreamed of.

Traci L. Slatton is an author worthy of collecting in your bookshelf or kindle. The writing is smooth, simple, and beautiful. The story is inspirational. If you haven’t read her, do it. NOW.
