Reasons not to Fall in Love

By: Kirsty Moseley
Release Date: June 6, 2014
Genre: Romance

Book Description:

Young mum Bronwyn Reynolds is devoted to her little boy Theo, but she's married to a not so devoted husband! Juggling two jobs to make ends meet, Bronwyn's self-esteem is at an all-time low.

Enter Harrison Baxter.

Harrison is confident, flirty and breathtakingly handsome – and everything Bronwyn's husband is not! What's worse is that she knows every sexy thought about him is forbidden, which makes him all the more tempting.

The only woman that ladies' man Harrison has ever wanted is one he can never have. Bronwyn has left her mark on him, and he can't get her out of his mind no matter how hard he tries!

Bronwyn and Harrison have every reason not to fall in love, but are they brave enough to break all the rules?


I blinked a couple of times, trying to come back to reality because looking at him made me feel a little weird inside. Harrison. I'd heard of this guy. He was the one who was in business with Brandon. The two of them had both been made redundant from their advertising jobs last year and had decided to go into business together instead of looking for another job. Skye and Brandon had become extremely good friends with this guy over the last year, so I'd heard. I'd never personally met him, but now that I knew who he was, I knew to stay away. Harrison Baxter was a ladies' man and fancied himself as Bath's answer to James Bond, apparently.

One of the gorgeous stranger's eyebrows rose. "Married, really? Damn, all of the hot ones are always taken or gay. Why is that, do you think?" he mused, cocking his head to the side playfully.

His voice did funny things to my insides. I was lost for words. Nothing was coming out of my mouth at all, so I just looked back down at Evie who was nestled comfortably in my arms.

"You happily married?" he probed, stepping closer to me. The heat emanating from his body to mine was making me feel a little jittery and I couldn't stand still.

No, not at all. I gulped and nodded in answer to his question, trying to ignore the feelings of lust and want that were battling inside me. It was wrong for me to feel like this. I knew it was. I was married, and although Finn cheated on me occasionally, I would never do the same. "Happy married with a child," I confirmed, nodding. Only part of that sentence was a lie. I did, in fact, have a child – I had just never been happily married.

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 Stars

“Many women went through their lives in an unhappy marriage. I was no different to any of them. Not everyone found their Mr Darcy and lived happily ever after, some people just had to take what they could get and be grateful. Clearly I was one of those people.”

This is a really quick read at 81 pages, but this is 81 pages crammed full of a beautiful story. The story is also really relatable, many women are stuck in a loveless marriage, normally tied together by children and are willing to sacrifice their own happiness for that of their children. Bronwyn is no exception.

Bronwyn had been with her husband since she was young; they got married and had a child. Her husband had lost his job and was making no real attempt to regain employment; it was left to Bronwyn to makes ends meet. Holding down two jobs while her husband drank, gambled and had affairs, Bronwyn was finally reaching the end of her tether.

Harrison was her brother-in-law’s business partner, at many a family function he had always made a beeline for Bronwyn, he knew that she was off limits as she was married but he couldn’t help the flirty innuendo banter that always slipped out when he was in her company. Bronwyn thought that Harrison would be a fantastic catch, if only she wasn’t married.

“The little glint to his eyes was making butterflies swoop around in my stomach, and if I wasn’t married, if I didn’t have a five year old waiting for me at home, two jobs and rent to pay, I would push him down onto the tiled floor and ravage his body until he begged for mercy.”

Fate always has a way of bringing people together and this story is no different. Would these two ever be together when they are both in the right place and at the right time and under the right circumstances.

The flirty banter between these two was hot, you could tell that there was a mutual attraction between the two, but Bronwyn is not a cheater, she was just full of regrets. Her husband continually embarrassed her, treated her like shit and did not take their vows seriously, I was reading this just waiting for Bronwyn to finally see the light and it takes a major incident for her to finally see that she is worth so much more.

I couldn’t help but feel that Harrison was saving himself, or at least no other woman in all that time had captured his attention like Bronwyn had, it made their story all the more of a fairy-tale. There are many twists in this story that keep you engaged throughout and keep you rooting for these two going forward.

“I don’t just want one night Bronwyn; I never did, not with you. I have been pining for you for the last two months.”

As usual for a Kirsty Moseley read it is well written and totally captivating, it seemed that I had only been reading ten minutes before I realised this novella had finished. To me this is the beginning of a serial, although this instalment covers many years, I am hoping for a day by day account going forward! I sincerely hope that this is not the end of Bronwyn and Harrison’s story.

About the Author:

My name is Kirsty. I was born in Hertfordshire, England. In 2000 I moved to Norfolk, it was there that I met my husband, Lee. Now, what can I say about Lee, apart from everyone should have one? He's my biggest supporter, and I wouldn't be where I am today without his encouragement and endless support. He is my inspiration behind most of my male leads, I always try to bring a little of him in somewhere, be it his kindness, selflessness, or just his ability to make me feel treasured.

In 2005, I was gifted with the birth of my son. He is, and always will be, the best thing I have ever done in my life. As you can probably tell, I'm a very proud mummy.

I have always been interested in writing, but after the birth of my son I accidentally came across an amateur writing site. After a couple of months of just reading on there, I finally plucked up the courage and posted one of my stories. I was shocked and overwhelmed by the support of readers on there and they gave me the confidence to get where I am today.

In April 2012, I self-published my first novel 'The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window'. And in October 2012 I took the plunge again, publishing my second novel, 'Always You.'

Lastly, if I had to sum myself up in one word, it would probably be 'daydreamer' – but unlike most of my school teachers, I don't necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, I read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….
