Blogpost: Getting Unstuck and Living Your Dream

Days Of The Week Comments

Preface

I had been stuck for a very long time, and I knew it. The problem was getting unstuck was going to hurt like hell, and I knew that too. It wasn't that I hadn't been in long term relationships before, I had. I just hadn't been in love before--not like this. 

He had done horrible things to me--things I would have never allowed anyone else to do. But that was not the man I fell in love with. That man mowed lawns for little old ladies next door. That man slept on benches in people's yards, as a boy, and rode the el' to stay warm. That man told his sisters to run while he turned and fought off gangs. That man fought every single day to be a better man--and often lost the battle, and yet, he still continued to fight, never willing to give up, always reaching for better days.

It wasn't difficult to love him--it was easy.

I had been arrogant in my dealings with men. I had believed I would put down any man who dared to lay a hand on me. I just hadn't met the right man. And if he had been the right-right man, I would have been in heaven. But he was the right-wrong man--and I would allow him to take me to hell.

When I finally left, he had reached the point where I spent most of my time in my bedroom. I say he had reached the point, because he could no longer tolerate anyone moving around him. He ran us out of the living room, and he could barely handle the noise or movement of anyone in the kitchen.

But he had also hardly bothered to hide his affairs from me, anymore. He had put me on a train to Chicago to visit my cousin while reaching to answer the phone from one of his many new girlfriends. Sometime after I returned, he had accidentally left a love letter up on the desktop. He was not ashamed that he had been caught. He was only upset that he had hurt me in doing so. 

I knew I no longer had any choice left open to me. He hated himself, and he had lost all respect for me for allowing him to get away with all the horrible things he had done to me. I didn't hate me. I knew what I had endured at his hands, and why. I also knew the time for these lessons had reached their end. I had wanted to be punished for my choices. I had needed to pay for things I couldn't even remember. I had known that when I no longer needed to suffer for things for which I had no memory, I would go. 

I had reached the end of my self-inflicted anhilation the night I had fought his large, muscular body off from raping me one more time. I had stopped becoming the warrioress, who fought men off, by day, only to become the helpless little girl, who became paralyzed by what she had been taught to endure from infancy, by night.

I had fought his rage and his abuse. I had learned to sling all of my own, by day--and by night. I had crafted steel strength, deep, into by deepest being. I had healed my tormented little girls and taken them somewhere safe, where no one would ever hurt them again. In some strange way, he and I had healed some part of each other from many unseen demons that tormented each of our souls. 

In the days before I left, I knew I had ran out of excuses. Now, he was down to trying to convince me I was still his number one 'ho--and it was way past time to go. But it would prove to be far from over.

I knew that leaving would destroy me. That knowledge had staid my had for two more debilitating years. In fact, that piece of truth had staid my hand for much, much longer. Even knowing, I had no idea the reality of it, what it would still cost me, or what I would do to survive. I had no idea how far I would have to go to save my own life--or how close I would come to staring at the face of my own insanity--and the choice I would make to stay sane. And I had no idea what I'd still have to endure to get my life back....

I am Lenora. And this is my story.

My Review: Note: We don't normally review urban fantasy here on Bitten but this was a special request and it kinda blurs the lines between paranormal romance and urban fantasy. What creative characters and an imaginative story line Wolfe has come up with! It is a delightful foray into the legends of Atlantis, King Arthur and the Faerie Kingdoms combined with past lives of the female lead. Jaguar shifters, a Starbourne, a master illusionist, a shaman, the fey, the Queen of Darkness, zombies, a medallion, a special doorway, a soul thief and a journey round out the story. Mira, the female lead, has always just known things and has been able to tell how people felt. She meets a jaguar shifter who, after almost giving her a heart attack, tells her she needs to go to Denver on a journey where four men will help her find the answers. She learns later all four are immortal and they had all loved one of her past life selves. And because these woman are still apart of her, all four are her soulmates. This is an urban fantasy story that flirts with being a paranormal romance. There are a couple of steamy scenes with the female lead and two of the four soulmates (individually, not a three-some). The other two soulmates are kinda left out in the cold. {grin} This could make a great full length novel by adding more to the exploration of the relationship with each soulmate and their interactions with each other. As it is, the main characters are mostly on the go trying to complete the journey all the while the main antagonist is hurling obstacles in their way. I enjoyed this story and I think urban fantasy and fantasy fans will like this as well.

This story pulled me in from the start and wouldn't let me go....

Miranda's review Nov 10, 11 Read in October, 2011 I got this book as part of the Adopt an Indie event going on right now. This is the first work of Lenore Wolf that I have read and let me tell you I will be going back to check out what else she has available. This story pulled me in from the start and wouldn’t let me go till I had finished it. The way she weaves emotion throughout the book is very well done from the pain of losing loved ones, to the true hatred of those that took them. The strength of a woman determined to keep what is rightfully hers, to a love that comes on so fast and so strong it scares both involved. I loved how Amanda would do anything to keep what is hers. Her strength, determination, and faith in herself and her spiritual teachings. It is an inspiration to us all. I loved the weaving of romance, mystery, and intense spiritual belief that comes out of the pages. A great western romance, with a twist that pierces your heart. Amanda and Hawk are a couple you want to root for, though at times you want to shake one of them and say wake up, look right in front of you.
