 Release Blitz Image


Becca finally found her courage and faced her tormentors head on to get what she deserved: respect and Tyler Conklin. Beccas faith in Tyler is solid, but is he willing to completely open up to her? They both have past baggage, and as Becca says, Tylers is particularly old.

With everything they have been through, Becca and Tyler know that secrets get them nowhere. They have made great leaps and bounds in their relationship, but Becca cant help but feel he is still keeping something from her. Between the local detective snooping around and asking questions at the Conklin building and Tylers evasive answers, Becca remains skeptical about his excuses. The detective seems more interested in Tylers fathers projects, but Tylers hands seem to be in the pot as well.

Unfortunately, Tylers past comes back in his face along with his shady business. Will Becca hold true to her new found confidence and claim whats hers including Tyler?


 ARC received for an honest review

Conklin's Foundation follows on directly from Conklin's Blueprints so you will need to read it first to keep up with the story.

After finally telling everyone what she really thought of them after years of holding it in and being the nice guy, Becca thinks she might have finally pushed everyone she loves away.  I LOVED how she finally let loose on everyone.  No one was safe and I was so happy she did this, as she really was a bit of a doormat up to this stage.

Never fear - Tyler is here to save the day, in a knight in shining armour kind of way.  He is proud of her for finally standing up for herself, and falls a little more in love with her.

But the road to true love is never an easy one, and both Becca and Tyler's pasts are always there waiting to poke their head around the corner and cause a little more trouble.

Tyler and Becca are separated quite a bit for Foundation, and this leads to a lot of the misunderstandings and arguments between the pair.  With them split so much, it is testament to how strong their relationship has become that they did not allow it to break them.

 Becca's ex Connor comes back on the scene, the infamous  Nanny Margo  (hisssssss) is still hanging around and causing grief. 

RJ, Tyler's father, really is creepy.  Seriously creepy!!  But I loved the rest of his family = mum Mary and brother Nathan and Mitch.  Love love love the banter and interaction between Nathan and Becca's BFFf Jamie - with a bit of a surprise thrown in there!  And there are some scenes with Becca and her friend Gage that are frustrating and heartbreaking all at the same time as being filled with so much love, that I wanted to throttle him and hug him at the same time.

Conklin's Foundation carried Becca and Tyler's story forward extremely well.  It is filled with love and lust, jealousy, trouble making exes, secrets and lies.  I felt that the way the characters handled the situations felt natural.  There was no instant-forgiveness for all discretions, they fought, they loved, they laughed and things progressed as they should.

Foundation ends, setting us up for the 3rd book in the series, leading with the "legal" problems that were alluded to in book 2.  How much do the sons know of the "deals" that Tyler's father and grandfather have set up?

I guess for that we are all going to have to wait.

Throughout Conklin's Blueprints there were some pretty glaring grammatical errors (these may have been fixed since I read it, and they may not bother you, but they really stood out to me).  I was pleased that these issues were not present in Conklin's Foundation.

Ms Page has drawn me into the lives of Becca and Tyler, Becca's friends and the Conklin family, and I am really looking forward to seeing where things end up in this series.
