Losing Myself by Victoria J Brown @victoriajbrown #BlogTour #Review @bombshellpub


I'm delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Losing Myself by Victoria J Brown. Today I will be sharing my review but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

Since Kat made her decision, everything around her seems to be falling apart. Not only is she dealing with family’s secrets, lies and deceit but the salon, which is opening around the corner, threatens her livelihood.

To make matters worse her relationship with Max is on the rocks. Although her relationships with Max’s mother, her step-mother and her sister have grown stronger, are they strong enough?

Working tirelessly to save her salon and save her relationship with Max, she is battling everyday to stay focused on her future. But what will the future bring?

After reading Holding Myself and getting to know Kat I couldn't wait to read the next book especially after the ending regarding her pregnancy. I would say that it is possibly best to read Holding Myself first and that is purely because it is such a wonderful story and it would completely answer the background of Kat's character.

So I have to admit that I'm not naturally a touchy feely kind of person who is always giving hugs well other than to my children anyway. However for most of this story I just wanted to reach into the pages and give Kat the biggest hug! I felt all of Kat's emotions her fears, stress and insecurities as they slowly began to overwhelm her. I wanted to give a few characters a piece of my mind so that's definitely a sign I was invested in the story.

Victoria J Brown writes with feeling and has created a character who I couldn't help but become attached to. Kat isn't completely perfect however who is and the fact that she is pregnant and having to deal with so many problems I could not blame her at all for some of her reactions.

Losing Myself is the type of book where once you start you need to finish it in one go. It's so easy to become lost in and fully immersed in Kat's life especially as things certainly don't go to plan. There are so many problems thrown at her that my heart went out to her. However there is also a sense of hope and determination that shows how we can survive and carry on even when things look bleak.

With thanks to Bombshell Books for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.

Victoria J.Brown has always had a passion for writing. When asked at the age of 9 years old, what she wanted to be when she grew up, her reply ‘an author’ was met with a disheartened response, ‘that jobs like that, don’t happen to people like us!’

Luckily, Victoria didn’t listen to this advice and never gave up on her passion.  She continued to write while perusing a career in Marketing after gaining a BA (Hons) in Business and Marketing.

In 2006 her eldest daughter was born and then two years later her 2nd daughter came along. Victoria realised in the midst of the mummy madness, that she’d let her writing dwindle and that nappy-changing, sleepless nights and not being able to go to the toilet in peace could not stop her fulfilling her writing dreams. So when her girls were 3 years old and 18 months old, she decided that sleep was over-rated and enrolled at Teesside University. A year later she proudly left with a MA in Creative Writing, some wonderful friendships and a passion for therapeutic writing. While studying for her MA she was also delighted to win a short-story competition judged by Adele Parks, to which she received publication and mentoring from Adele.

After her MA, Victoria concentrated on writing women’s fiction. She loves writing stories that women can relate to. The Chaos Series grew from her own experience of pregnancy, motherhood and life.

Victoria is also passionate about mental health and likes to write of such issues in her stories. Her dedication to mental health and living life to the full has led her down a spiritual path. Through her learning of spirituality she qualified as a Law of Attraction and NLP Practitioner, which she integrates into her writing. Her inspirational blog includes an A-Z motivational journey with weekly therapeutic creative writing exercises. She has developed this further and will soon launch her inspirational shop. The shop has been created to pass on positivity and love to others … you never know when someone may need to see those messages.

Being accepted by Bombshell Books is a dream come true for Victoria, she hopes that her mantra for giving love always and never giving up will inspire others to follow their dreams and passion.
