*** Release Blitz, Review & Giveaway for Awakened by Lacey Roberts ***
slouched at her desk and glared at the pictures on her computer. Images of
Callum, her scumbag boyfriend, and a tall, shapely, blonde haired woman filled
the screen. They were kissing, holding hands and gazing adoringly into each
other’s eyes. Another image of them both staring straight at the camera, mocked
How could he have
done this? Only two days before they had been discussing a romantic holiday to
one of the islands. He’d been crooning sweet words into her ears while fucking
her senseless, and behind her back he’d also been screwing this bitch! Phoebe
had no idea who the woman was or who had sent the images to her. The only thing
she was sure of was that five years of her life had gone down the drain. No
wonder the bastard wouldn’t discuss marriage.
Anger mingled with
sadness at her loss but she would face it with her shoulders pulled back and
her well-endowed chest pushed out. Like she did everything in her life. Like
her Army Sargent father had always demanded. There had never been any tolerance
for ‘childish tears and tantrums’ in her parents’ house. “Face it head on,” her
father had barked at her on more than one occasion. She’d never received the
hugs she craved when she was hurt. “Wouldn’t do for a soldier to be seen to be
soft,” her father’s voice echoed in her mind.
Phoebe shut down her
computer, gathered her purse, files from her desk and strode with purpose to
the suite of offices where her bosses worked. They were brothers and co-owners
of the legal firm. David and Tony Allen were bent over a desk examining papers
and discussing a case in David’s office. Phoebe knocked on the door frame and
both men stopped what they were doing and glanced up.
David, a tall,
slender man with black hair was the elder brother. He noted the purse and files
in her arms before checking his watch. “What can we do for you Phoebe?”
“David, I need to
lodge these files at the courthouse and I was hoping I might be able to head
home a bit earlier.” To her dismay, her voice shook with emotion. I will not
cry, I will not cry. Tears pooled and burned in her eyes as she struggled not
to set them free.
David didn’t miss the
glazed, watery appearance of her eyes and he heard the distress as she spoke.
He knew her well, she had been with them since the beginning and he had never
seen her upset. He was worried as he moved towards her. He placed his hand on
her shoulder. “Is everything okay?” he asked gently.
On hearing David’s
words, Tony, shorter than his older brother and with brown hair streaked with
grey, left the papers he’d gone back to studying and straightened. Moving
closer to her, he could clearly see something had upset her. “Phoebe, what’s
happened?” he asked.
The concern shown by
the brothers was the catalyst that flung her over the edge. Tears streamed from
her eyes, her shoulders shook.
Both men moved to her
side. David handed her a tissue he’d pulled from a box on the desk.
“Come and sit down,”
Tony urged. She allowed herself to be guided to a corner of the office where
four chairs were arranged around a small, round table. She plonked herself down
in a chair and dropped her purse and the files on the table. She dabbed at her
eyes before blowing her nose.
David and Tony sat in
chairs flanking her. They waited patiently, without speaking while she composed
“I just found out
that Callum has been having an affair.” A fresh wave of tears washed over her
