Common Bond, Tangled Hearts as reviewed in the Sony Reader Store

Kimberlee Williams, the managing editor at Vanilla Heart Publishing, certainly makes sure that our books are available at numerous outlets – one more place you can get my books, in ebook form, is the Sony Reader Store.

Layne Gillette’s world is turned upside down when a man she has never met shows up to lay claim as the father of her 6-year old son. Justin, the victim of a fraternity prank, and Layne, the subject of a forced insemination, have produced a beautiful child that they are both willing to protect at all costs. The two parents realize they can love each other, but when Layne’s abusive ex-husband shows up, they are torn apart by danger, kidnapping and lies. Justin won’t give up until Layne is returned to him. Layne uses her new-found strength, courage and knowledge to defy Charlie’s ugliest demands.

There are three reviews for Common Bond, Tangled Hearts listed in the Reader Store; one review is only 2-stars because “It reads like a Danielle Steele book” and the reader is not fond of Danielle Steele. However, Danielle Steele has always been one of my favorite authors so I am really flattered at the comparison!

The other two reviews are 4-star and 5 star (not bad!) and has statements such as “Layne and Justin clearly love the child, and this comes across well in Cordero’s tender yet suspenseful prose. And when Layne’s hurtful and scary ex – who I hated as soon as Layne started to talk about him!! – shows up, I flew through the pages to see what happened to this realistically written couple.” and “There are so many unexpected twists, it kept me turning “pages” to find out what happens next. I loved the ending, but I won’t give it away. Great story!
