About the Author:
I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.
I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.
When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"
If you combine a sexy alpha hero with mistaken identity, steamy romance, and a bit of humor, you'd get Rochelle Paige's newest release, Identity Crisis.
It took me a bit to really get in to Identity Crisis, but I'm glad I stuck with it because it turned out to be an enjoyable read. Blaine is the typical hero, rough around the edges, but willing to do anything to keep Delia safe. He's protective and possessive - like he walked straight out of one of the books Delia writes. Even thought their relationship is hot and I loved the chemistry between the two characters, it was a little disconcerting to know that Delia looked so much like Blaine's ex, whom he was looking for. It seemed as if Delia might have been introduced to become a replacement for Serena, but as the story proceeded, it seemed as if Blaine liked Delia in her own right and not for who she looked like. He definitely had a very protective streak when it came to Delia!
I also really liked the character of Brody. He's almost like a secondary hero in Identity Crisi and I'm hoping this leads in to Paige writing a story on it's own for him. His character was developed well and I would love to read more.
Identity Crisis is a fast paced, easy read, but worth picking up and checking out. If you're a fan of Rochelle Paige, you'll like this newest release of her's.
Excerpt from Identity Crisis
The sound of the garage door going up startled me, setting me into motion. It was a good thing I had been trained to make split second decisions with limited information because that skill set was being put to the test right now. I moved toward the kitchen as I ran the possible scenarios through my head. If it was Serena using a friend’s place to lay low, then I was in the clear. If it was a boyfriend or family member of the dead author, I was probably screwed. A cleaning person or friend, I might be okay. The bottom line was, I had no way of knowing which scenario I was about to face, but it didn’t matter. There wasn’t a chance in hell I was going out the back without knowing if the person walking through that door was Serena.
Right as my decision was made, I heard the sound of the garage door lowering, quickly followed by the door connecting the garage to the house opening and closing. A deep feminine sigh resonated, but I stayed in position, on the other side of the refrigerator and out of sight. The sound of footsteps got closer and then a woman entered the kitchen. I hadn’t meant to make a noise, but I shifted as soon as I realized who was standing in front of me. I moved toward her so I could cover her mouth and get her under control before she screamed and one of the neighbors came to see what was wrong. And holy fuck, there was plenty wrong with this situation since the woman was supposed to be dead.
