Book Promo: Bedrock by Britney King

Title: Bedrock
Author: Britney King
Release date: May 1, 2013
Genre:  Adult/Contemporary
Buy Link: Amazon

When Addison Greyer, a happily married mother of three, decides to re-enter the workforce, she never once considers that taking a job might unravel everything she thinks to be true about her life—that it would cause her to look deep within and confront fears she didn’t know existed. She couldn’t have foreseen how a chance meeting or a single day can change the course of an entire lifetime.

Like many women, Addison is defined in terms of marriage and motherhood, until she suddenly finds her life turned upside down by her husband’s decision to take a job thousands of miles away. When her tough-as-nails boss offers her an opportunity she can’t refuse, Addie is forced to make difficult choices. Those choices take her further and further out of the carefully crafted fairytale life she has created and lead her into an unknown world where things are anything but black and white: a world where she learns that desire is not only dangerous but deadly. In this world, all bets are off as she is forced to finally confront her past. As her past and present collide, she has to make decisions that for most are unthinkable, decisions that can tear her family apart, and perhaps even have fatal consequences. 

Bedrock is a love story designed to showcase how the choices we make ultimately shape our lives. It serves as a reminder that in the end what defines us is not the big events, the monumental occasions. It’s the tiny, seemingly inconsequential moments in between. It’s proof that time passes and we cannot, no matter how hard we try, get it back. Bedrock is a story of love and grief that pretty much sums up the context of the human experience. 

Due to heavy subject matter and sexual content this book is recommended for mature readers.

“Look, Mrs. Greyer. I’m not going to waste your time here. And I ask that you don’t waste mine. Are we clear? Seriously. Who does this bitch think she is? “Clear about what?” Addie replied, feigning ignorance and refusing to let this woman, boss or not, get the best of her. “I know what happened in the elevator, Addison.” Addie’s face remained neutral, refusing to give anything up. “I’m not sure what you mean.” Ok, so maybe she knows. But make her spell it out. Sondra shoved papers and a sealed envelope she’d been holding onto Addie’s desk. “Sign the top form.” Addie glanced at the paperwork in front of her. “I signed a confidentiality agreement in my new-hire paperwork.” Sondra frowned, sighing loudly. “This one is different. It’s personal. You need help. This is my offer. Just sign the goddamn paper, Addison.” Something in Sondra’s tone, something in the way that she looked at Addie, told her what she knew she needed to do. She signed the form and pushed it towards Sondra. “Read the proposal and see me in my office tomorrow morning, eight o’clock sharp. And remember, you signed this, Mrs. Greyer. No one’s eyes but your own are to view what’s inside that envelope, are we clear?” “Clear as day. Oh, and, Sondra, be a dear and close the door behind you on your way out, will you?” Sondra waltzed out, slamming the door behind her. She had to admit she really liked this girl. She could see that this was going to work out well. Very well, indeed.
