"Her Name" review by Alicia Joseph

Hello readers!  Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with author Alicia Joseph, author of "Her Name".  This is in my 12-Dec-14 blog.  Here you will see that Alicia is very passionate about a lot of things, including her book and her love for animals.  This story is fun and will take you on journey that is peppered with oddities.

"Did you ever have a dream where you woke feeling like it was real?"

Madison is a spirited woman who has a big heart.  She is nearing forty and is desperate for love. Unfortunately she attracts women who don't have her best interest at heart.  She's ready to settle down with a wife and have a family.  But she seems to lack some confidence since she is a beautiful woman who catches the attraction of both men and women when she is out and about.  Madison desires a woman who loves her for who she is and wants to share her journey of life. 
Her best friend, Shelly, has told her not to be so hasty in her search that she overlooks some early important details; ones that point out bad traits of a person. 

Madison isn't into the party scene anymore;  she doesn't want to look for love in a bar.  Nor does she want to pretend.   
However, for now she goes along with the ride keeping her hopes to herself. 
The passing of her mother is causing disturbing dreams for Madison; dreams that haunt her when she is awake.  Here, the author's description is filled with such sensory detail that I felt it.  The line between consciousness and Madison's subconscious experiences is effectively blurred.  I got the chills during certain points during the story. 
Raw emotions are exposed many times during the story.  On one hand is her truth that she wants to share, yet on the other she is afraid of going insane.  Her friendships are strained and though Shelly doesn't understand her, she still supports her.
The chemistry throughout the entire story is electrifying.  The romance parts were very unique and the sex is hot. 
This story has twists and turns that kept me on my toes the entire ride.  It's an easy read and can be finished in a few hours.  The story is very heartwarming and I felt tears a few times.   Five Stars.

Until Next Time,
