Learning to Move Forward by Cynthia P. O'Neill


 LEARNING TO MOVE FORWARD
Author: Cynthia P. O'Neill
Series: A Learning Series #3.5
Genre: Contemporary | Erotic Romance
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Grace Hart was a force to be reckoned with. She’d fought hard in her life to overcome hurt, rejection, and humiliation and won. Her only fear was opening her heart to love. She put up a persona of dominance and kept people at a distance, in order to avoid emotion. But, secretly she craved someone to take control and move her forward in a life she seemed to be stuck in.
Jonathan Waters never believed in love at first site, even scoffed at his brother Garrett, having fallen in love with his wife Laurel at first glance. But, when Grace entered his restaurant, he knew he had to make her his, no matter what it took.
Fate would force them together, but could they overcome issues in the past to secure a future together? They say love can conquer anything, but can it help them Learn to Move Forward?



 4 stars 
At first I wasn't sure what the heck was going on with Grace because I always thought of her as a strong, independent, in your face type and I loved that about her but then in this she was almost a completely different person. She was more pouty and angry. BUT as always it came together great and it totally worked and explained why she was the way she is. She was still the same Grace but you just saw the part she tried to hide which made her very easy to relate to. I was crying my little eyes out when she was talking to her parents. I was glad to see that she hadn’t changed from the Grace I loved in the earlier books.  Then there is Jonathan. Oh how I loved Jonathan in this series. Yes I feel in love with him back in book one and kept hoping we would get more of him. He was the perfect balance of sweet romantic and alpha male. He loves Grace and you can tell he would do anything for her. The story is basically Grace and how she has to figure out some things to move forward with her life with Jonathan and he feels it is important for her to work through her issues and want to help her do it.  It shows that even with imperfections you can still be perfect in someone else’s eyes.

 5 steamy stars 

I loved this book! It was different from the stories I had been reading and every little twist just made me love it more. I was a little iffy on Dane at first but he turned out to be a sweet man and I fell in love with him and is hot alpha male side. He started out as your typical party boy. But as the story goes on you can almost see him change. That first kiss they share is very hot! 
To me, Marissa was a little mixed. I liked her and hated her at times too. As the story unfolds we see why she is the way she is and it all comes together. As the story unfolds you see that she has a huge heart and is a very smart woman who just made a few bad choices. 
This was a great steamy read that I couldn't put down. It had a mix of happy and sad and it made for the perfect mix. Can't wait for more.

 It would probably surprise many, that I never really liked to read that much until the past five years. I read what I had to for school, but did not care to pick up that many books to read. Now I am a voracious reader and love to polish off a novel, if it is good, in one night.

As a child, I always let my mind dream, reaching to distant lands and fantasy realms; creating my own little fantasies to live in. However, I never wrote any of my thoughts down, believing it was a waste of my time. About a year ago, a few friends and me were talking about authors we love and asking each other if we have ever written anything. I admitted I had tried my hand at several children's book, but did not have the nerve to submit them for publishing. Suddenly, one of the friends asked if I had ever thought about a Young Adult book. I had dismissed the idea, but over the course of the next two weeks, a story that had been playing in my mind, for almost eight years, started take on more definition until one day, upon my family's encouragement, I sat down and started to write. I have been writing ever since!

Synopsis
Not afraid to speak his mind or make a scene, Nathaniel Kelly has made a name for himself as country music’s ultimate bad boy.
Covered in tattoos, singing songs about drugs, drinking and heartache, Nate acts more like an out of control rock star than the grandson of one of the genres most influential and legendary stars. Every man wants to be him. Every woman wants just one night with the hard-rocking country rebel.
Except me. I just want to know that the boy I used to love is happy and that I didn’t break his heart in vain. That’s why I buy every magazine that even mentions his name; at least, that’s the story I tell myself.
When my friends gave me a birthday present any fan would die for, I was suddenly face-to-face with the man I never thought I’d see again. My body wasn’t supposed to react to him the way it did. And, Nate sure as hell wasn’t supposed to look at me the way he used to.
Can someone you loved as a teenager really have a hold on your heart twelve years later? Is it ever too late to say you’re sorry and make up for past wrongs? I’m about to find out.

Forever Red Cover
Excerpt
I’d always planned to get the hell out of my hometown as soon as high school was over. Hell, once I hit tenth grade, I couldn’t pack my bags fast enough. I wanted nothing more than to see that shitty little town, and all of its residents, shrinking in my rearview mirror as soon as possible.

What I hadn’t planned on was having someone in my life who was so important that he made me question everything and wonder if I should stay. Or, that someone giving up everything so he didn’t have to leave me. I couldn’t let him do it, couldn’t let me be the thing that held him back, couldn’t let his love for me destroy his dreams. So I did the only thing I could do; I wrecked it all.

For me, there was no simplicity of burning bridges. No, I strapped dynamite to every single one, blowing them into tiny smithereens. Then, I bulldozed each surviving piece into a pile, doused it with kerosene, and aimed a blowtorch toward the debris, just to make sure there would be nothing left. As the flames roared to life, I danced around the blaze, drinking whiskey straight from the bottle, toasting the life I’d had, acting like a crazed woman performing a sacred ritual. As the last of the ashes drifted into the sky, fading from red hot into cold black, I sobbed, knowing there was no way I could ever undo the damage I’d just done.

It was stupid, dangerous, and devastating, but I needed to make sure every single relationship I had was destroyed. The only way I would be able to move on somewhere else was if there was no reason left for me to go back, and no way I could ever show my face there again, even if I’d wanted to. Unfortunately, I needed to hurt him, to decimate him, so he would hate me and could let me go and build a stronger life without me.

The one thing I never thought about, the one thing I hadn’t taken into consideration, was that most eighteen-year-old girls are idiots. They run on pure emotion, thinking with their heart, not their head. I had thought I was so mature, that somehow I had all the answers and knew what was best for everyone, so I made their decisions for them. In reality, I was just a na├»ve, small-town girl with more fashion sense than common sense – and looking back at the pictures proves that I didn’t know fashion for shit. What seemed like the perfect idea all those years ago was now my biggest regret.

5 sweet stars
This is a second book in a series but you could read it as a standalone. Not sure why you would want to since all of her books are great. She has grown as a writer from her first series and moved on to this new one. Not saying she will not be going back to the Hamden Series but she has just started a new one and it is wonderful! The characters are all lovable and she really brings them to life. I love the way W. Ferraro can make you think you are right there watching everything that happens unfold before your eyes. She can actually take you to another place. I felt like I was friends with all of the people in this small town she has created. At times I didn't know if I wanted to slap or hug Hunter and Molly. I loved both of them but at times they were both pigheaded. I felt bad for the lies they were told but also that they both believed them. The story was very touching and a great read. I was on a journey of hope waiting to see how their story ended and if they would finally get their happy ending. You should get the whole series and fall in love with all the Dennison's just like I have. Each character brings something special to the story and it just makes it a better story that is easy to relate to. Great job Mrs. Ferraro can't wait to see what you bring us next.

OUAA About Author
I live in New England with my young family. I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids. In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
