Life was hard as a prisoner, and now she has to get back in the real world.  How can she when she feels broken?  The only time she does not feel scarred and broken is when she is with the very man who saved her and his lover Julian. After some time she feels she is getting better and falling hard for the two men who take care of and treat her as though she is a strong woman that they cherish. Can she have a relationship with two men that are already in one? Would they share the love they have with her, or is this just a part of her trying to build a new life?

Coming Undone

by Lauren Dane
Trade Paperback

     Brody Brown had just about the perfect life. Even though his parents had both been killed when he was only seventeen, Brody had stepped up to the plate and successfully raised his two younger siblings, finished school, and ended up owning his own tattoo parlor. Now his brother was a major rock star and his sister, once a singer herself, now ran her own café and was happily living with her husband and boyfriend. Yes, it was unorthodox, but it worked for them, so Brody was cool with it, too. In fact, everything in his life was sort of unorthodox, but it worked for him and he figured that was all that counted. Besides, who was going to argue with a big, bad biker dude with tats about how he lived his life? Certainly no one in his neighborhood, who all loved the quiet, unassuming, gentle giant.
     When Elise and her daughter fled New York City for the peacefulness of Seattle, she had no clue that her life would become so perfect in so short a time. Once a primary dancer with the New York Ballet Theatre, her career was abruptly ended when her junkie ex-husband broke into her apartment and broke her leg in two places. Elise had had to defend herself and her baby and now his influential parents wanted custody of Irene. She had tried to reason with them, but finally gave up and left New York for her sanity. Now firmly settled in Seattle in a lovely neighborhood, with even lovelier neighbors, Elise opened her own ballet studio and became almost an instant success. The only glitch in her life was the rather large biker who lived across the street from her. He had never given her any reason to be afraid, just his overwhelming size made her nervous. But, even with size and all his tattoos, he was awfully pretty to look at!
     Reading Coming Undone was like taking a breath of fresh air. There is no antagonism between the lovers; there are no hidden agendas. There’s plenty of fun, camaraderie, good family time and lots of happy thoughts. But real life does rear its ugly head with the problems of Elise’s in-laws. Yet Ms. Dane keeps the reader completely enthralled with the depth of her characterizations, plus the really hot sex scenes don’t hurt either.
