<— SHE ESCAPES FROM HER ABUSIVE HUSBAND ALERT!! Almost Like You by Karen Crompton IS LIVE & she is sponsoring this week’s Friday newsletter!
This sounds right up my romance/domestic thriller dark alley! I love the whole starting over/hiding out theme (and then meeting someone… and learning to trust again. The dangers… the slow burn. YES PLEASE) This one just gave me a HUGE blurb jolt!
And on release day, the author let us into her writing world about this particular story:
HAPPY RELEASE DAY-ALMOST LIKE YOU
This book was a labour of love for me, and more than once I thought it might have actually gotten the better of me. Time was not my friend on this book. But we got there in the end, and I have a long list of people to thank for helping me along the way.
To the readers, thank you for picking up my books and spending time with my characters. I loved writing Elliot and Tessa’s story and I thoroughly enjoyed spending my days in Porter Mountain, Wyoming.
To my husband, I can’t thank you enough for all the support you give me. I love you.
Thank you to Cassy Roop at Pink Ink Designs for the gorgeous cover. To Stacey Blake at Champagne Book Design, Ellie McLove at My Brother’s Editor, and Kiki at The Next Step PR—once again you have surpassed all my expectations. I can never thank you enough for being in my corner.

A special thank you must go to Gabby at www.instagram.com/all_you_read_is_lovex for always singing my praises. You have been a wonderful support and I really appreciate all your help.
So what’s it about?
When you are married to a monster, there is nothing left in life but darkness.
When you live in a nightmare, you would do anything to escape.
So that’s what I do. I escape.
After fleeing from an abusive husband, taking a summer job as a housekeeper on a horse ranch in Northern Wyoming seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. Only my boss is a man with a past even darker than my own.
Elliot Cole is cold and distant, sexy and broody. He looks straight through me most days, and yet somehow I’ve never before felt more seen.
But Elliot has secrets of his own – secrets he’s desperate to keep buried.
Can two people who come from the darkness somehow find the light? Or will their future forever be overshadowed? Can they rewrite their pasts? Because the way I see it, you can never truly have what’s in front of you, until you let go of what’s behind you.
Almost Like You is a standalone, full length novel with no cliff hangers. It is N/A contemporary romance, with some dark themes, suitable for readers 18 years +.
