✪ The Muse ✪ L.M Halloran ✪

What happens when the future brings the past?

Iris Eliot has survived a lot in her twenty-seven years. Despite the emotional and physical scars she carries, she refuses to be labelled a victim. Now in her final year of graduate school, her dream is within reach. Shes ready to put the past behind her and embrace whatever the future brings.

Until the future brings him.

Professor James Beckett, internationally bestselling author and award-winning poet, is the new head of the Creative Writing Department at her university. Brilliantly talented and obnoxiously sexy, hes more dangerous than Iris knows.

When Beckett sets his sights on Iris, its not just her heart on the line, or her academic and professional careers. Surrendering to the way he makes her feel will rewrite her past.


ARC received from author for an honest review

It has been a couple of days, and I am still struggling to put into words how I feel about this book.

Not because it is bad, but because it is so darn good.

From the moment I read the blurb I knew this was going to be an emotional read, however I didn't know how much this book would engulf me.

From the first time Iris and James meet, I was emotionally invested in this couple.  I couldn't help it.  Ms Halloran drew me right into and I couldn't stop reading.

Words cannot express the emotion and pain that our lovely Iris has been through, and is still going through.   I felt it with her, every laugh, every loss, every blow to the soul.

James.  I love him.  I hate him. I love to hate him. I want to hug him, and then I want to hit him with my kindle.  His relationship with Iris is a little bit toxic, and as much as I want them together, I want him to leave her be!

Ugh, it makes me so confuzzled about my feelings!

I don't want to spoil anything about this amazing book, as it is one that needs to be felt by the reader as they are reading.

I will just say that I absolutely love it.

I feel that I should be screaming from the rooftops at how amazing Ms Halloran is as a writer.  She is an exceptional writer, and the two books I have read of hers to date are completely underrated and need to be out there for the world to read.

I can't wait to see what she brings us next.

Hello!  My name is L.M. Halloran (but you can call me Laura).

When I’m not reading or writing, I enjoy walking barefoot, subjecting my husband to questionable recipes, and chasing my spirited toddler. I’m a rabid fan of coffee, moongazing, and small dogs that resemble Ewoks. Home is San Diego, CA.

On the professional front, I’m writing, writing, writing. There are so many stories to tell!
