Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Cover Reveal and Guest Post Personal Experiences (The Personal Series #1) by Tracy Lee

Published: September 9th, 2013


Elleny Barker and Trevor McHale have loved each other since the second grade. Growing up in a small Georgia town, they had the same group of friends and they all had dreams of leaving Richland. Elle’s life was perfect; going to the perfect college, had the perfect life plan of becoming a doctor and had the perfect boyfriend going to college on a full ride football scholarship. Until the day Elle’s life was turned upside down; making a decision that she thought would be the best for both her and Trevor, she turned to the one man she thought would be willing to help her, Trevor’s best friend, Willie “Bear” Jackson. Seventeen years later; Elleny, brought on by violent abuse and still feeling the sting of losing the only man she’s ever loved; is a changed woman, for the worse. She has locked her heart away and refuses to give it to anyone. Then it happened, a millionaire, whose company just bought out the local plant where Elle’s husband is a foreman moves into town; or should I say BACK into town; turns out that it’s Trevor McHale. Secrets have kept them apart for seventeen years; will they end up keeping them apart for the rest of their lives? Life teaches us harsh lessons; Personal Experiences teach us life’s true meaning.

WARNING: contains some graphic, dark scenes that are not for the light-hearted including torture. BUT DOES CONTAIN A HAPPILY EVER AFTER! Discretion is advised!!!

Adult Books - Advantages and disadvantages offered by taboos 

The disadvantages concerning taboos in adult books is that everything is laid out for you right there; in front of your face. You can mentally see exactly what the author wants you to see, play by play. Some readers like this when it comes to visualization of what is being portrayed. You have no use for the imagination. You don’t get to “personalize” the scene or the tale. The author leads in the direction that they want you, as the reader to go in. 

An advantage is how the addition of your own specific details allows you to become emotionally and mentally connected. When reading, to become enthralled into the premise of the book is vital. The mental image of surroundings and environments that the characters are being envisioned in is crucial. The written enlightening of the circumstances; is what brings you in, and keeps you engrossed. To feel attached to the main characters is the main objection and this to me is an advantage of taboos in any book.

About the author:
Tracy lives with her husband and 4 children in a small town just outside Tulsa, Ok. Originally from Brandon, Florida she was a city girl at heart. Growing tired of living in the concrete jungle she wanted a change of scenery and pace; she packed her kids up and moved to Oklahoma where she met her husband. Now she’s seen snow, touched pigs and has cows and chickens in her back yard.

Being a stay at home mom she became an avid reader and part-time blogger; she decided to put the three of them together and try her hand at writing and fell in love. In between running kids from band practice to PTO meetings, she enjoys her “me time” working on her next book. She thoroughly enjoys head-banging heavy metal and a kickass game of Black Ops and will be your slave if you offer her chocolate.
