Blog Tour & Giveaway: Kirsty Moseley's "Reasons not to fall in Love."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Kirsty Moseley's "Reasons not to fall in Love."


Right Man, Wrong timing!

Young mum Bronwyn Reynolds is devoted to her little boy Theo, but she’s married to a not so devoted husband! Juggling two jobs to make ends meet, Bronwyn’s self-esteem is at an all-time low.

Enter Harrison Baxter.

Harrison is confident, flirty and breathtakingly handsome – and everything Bronwyn’s husband is not! What’s worse is that she knows every sexy thought about him is forbidden, which makes him all the more tempting.

The only woman that ladies’ man Harrison has ever wanted is one he can never have. Bronwyn has left her mark on him, and he can’t get her out of his mind no matter how hard he tries!

Bronwyn and Harrison have every reason not to fall in love, but are they brave enough to break all the rules?

Blog Tour Review-Jo

I just love a story of forbidden love so after reading the synopsis of this book I knew it was one for me! 

Bronwyn had a hard life. She held down two crappy jobs to support her family whilst her good for nothing husband sat at home drinking and gambling. All in all her life was shit! 

"Many women went through their lives in an unhappy marriage. I was no different 
to any of them. Not everyone found their Mr Darcy and lived happily ever after, 
some people just had to take what they could get and be thankful. I was one of those people." 

Then along came Harrison. When Harrison and Bronwyn met they were both attracted to each other and albeit Harrison was a bit more vocal about it!!! 

"Ive been wandering what you would taste like since the first time I met you. 
You're too intoxicating for my sanity, Bronwyn Reynolds." 

Harrison was a gorgeous man who had a successful career. He was extremely confident and couldn't resist flirting with Bronwyn. He was the complete opposite of her husband So would Bronwyn be tempted? I certainly would have been if I was in her shoes! 

"Oh God. He was beautiful. Every time I saw this man he made my knees 
tremble and my hand itch to stroke his face and lick his luscious lips." 

I felt genuinely sorry for Bronwyn. Her husband was a complete waste of space but regardles,s she remained in her loveless marriage. She allowed herself to be walked over, turning a blind eye to the countless affairs that her Husband was having. When Harrison the hottie came along to rescue her from her dismal life I assumed that she'd be escaping the first chance she got. I envisioned Bronwyn riding off into the sunset with her Prince Charming but life wasn't that easy! Booo to real life, I wanted the fairy tale! lol! 

"I don't want just one night with you Bronwyn; I never did, not with you." 

I loved Harrison and Bronwyn, I found that their characters were totally believable, especially Bronwyn. There are so many woman out there in similar situations, trapped in loveless marriages. Leaving your home and stability is not an easy thing to do so I did understand the reasons why she had stayed put for so many years. I still wanted to slap her with a wet fish though for the way she was allowing herself to be be treated. 

So the story didn't go quite as I thought but I enjoyed it, none the less. As always with Kirsty's books, the story was well written, keeping me interested throughout. There is a little twist that I really didn't see coming. I found this book was a really quick read and I was left feeling a little disappointed that the story ended all too soon. I was truly invested in Harrison and Bronwyn as a couple and as such I wasn't ready for their story to be over. So Kirsty, If you feel like writing another book involving Harrison and Brownyn, I for one would be interested in reading it! LOL. 

"Reasons Not to Fall in Love" gets 4 hearts from me.


There was no longer any love between us; hell, we barely even tolerated each other at times. Sometimes I even struggled to remember what it was that I saw in him the first place. Usually I convinced myself that it was his looks that I fell for, though even those had lost their appeal to me because I knew he’d rather be off sleeping with other girls than me. 

Ours was a marriage of convenience, even though it was inconvenient most of the time. Another reason I was with him was because I didn’t have the energy to find anyone else. I’d been young when we’d gotten together, merely seventeen, and I knew that the dating scene had moved on pretty rapidly since I was last a part of it. 

In my opinion, I was too old to be single again, so I’d just have to suffer and grin and bear it. Many women went through their lives in an unhappy marriage. I was no different to any of them. 

Not everyone found their Mr Darcy and lived happily ever after, some people just had to take what they could get and be thankful. Clearly I was one of those people.

Author Bio:

My name is Kirsty. I was born in Hertfordshire, England. In 2000 I moved to Norfolk, it was there that I met my husband, Lee. Now, what can I say about Lee, apart from everyone should have one? He's my biggest supporter, and I wouldn't be where I am today without his encouragement and endless support. He is my inspiration behind most of my male leads, I always try to bring a little of him in somewhere, be it his kindness, selflessness, or just his ability to make me feel treasured.

In 2005, I was gifted with the birth of my son. He is, and always will be, the best thing I have ever done in my life. As you can probably tell, I'm a very proud mummy. 

I have always been interested in writing, but after the birth of my son I accidentally came across an amateur writing site. After a couple of months of just reading on there, I finally plucked up the courage and posted one of my stories. I was shocked and overwhelmed by the support of readers on there and they gave me the confidence to get where I am today.

In April 2012, I self-published my first novel ‘The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window’. And in October 2012 I took the plunge again, publishing my second novel, 'Always You.'

Lastly, if I had to sum myself up in one word, it would probably be ‘daydreamer’ – but unlike most of my school teachers, I don’t necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, I read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….
