Better Left Forgotten by Lisa Helen Grey Release Day Event

Better left forgotten

How far would you go to protect the ones you love?

Some things are better left forgotten, but for Caitlyn Michelson forgetting is not something 

that she can do. After the brutal death of her sister, she packs up her four year old daughter 

Carrie and moves across the country, all in an attempt to get away from her sister’s killer, 

Robin Quinton.

After blackmailing Robin she believes that she will finally be free to live her life. However 

Caitlyn was naive to think her threats would work against the man who brutally murdered 

her sister. It’s only when she meets gorgeous bad boy biker Cage Carter that she finally 

begins to feel like she is living again.

Will lady luck finally be on her side? Or will everything she has be torn away from her?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Caitlyn Michelson is a young beautiful woman who is doing everything she can, to protect her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a smart little cookie, she's been home schooled by Caitlyn because they need to stay hidden from her sister’s killer, Robin Quinton. Caitlyn has been living and working for Roy and Haley the owners of a Holiday park in a rural country area in England.

She has finally started to relax, thinking that the evidence she has hidden will keep her and Carrie safe from Robin's clutches, she enjoys her work - which includes Cleaning the cabins as well as managing the bar. And Roy and Haley have grown fond of Both Caitlyn and Carrie.

One Night Caitlyn's peace and quiet is interrupted by Cage Carter and his Boy's who have come to work on the expansion to the park. The first night they arrive they throw a party, loud music, Lewd debauchery in full view of her cabin... by the early hours she has lost it and armed with scissors Take's matters into her own hand. Unfortunately Caitlyn runs into Cage - Literally. The Sparks fly and Cage doesn't stand a chance, falling hook line and sinker for the feisty Mother and her cute daughter

This book starts off with a scene I could really relate to (unfortunately my run in with a loud party didn't have HOT Construction workers... Just old rude Drunks) and I was laughing and with Caitlyn all the way to when she cut that cord!

You can't help relate to Both Caitlyn and of course the sweet little Carrie, I have a granddaughter who is the same age, so I was chuckling along with her cute little antics.

Then there is Cage the HAWT Boss with a body to drool over he acts tough but underneath he has a big heart. Then there is Nate and Dante who are Cage's Best Buddies... the supporting characters in the book are well developed and I look forward to reading their stories in the future.

Lisa Helen Gray has written a Romantic suspense story that keeps you entertained, and wondering whether Caitlyn will manage to escape the Gangster who is out to silence her, as he has done to every other person who tried to get him sent down.

“Enough is enough,” I chant in my head as I walk across the lawn towards the 


 As I’m walking along, I notice the extension cable that leads to just the plug I’m 

after. I head over, ignoring the stares from the men around me. The women just give me 

curious looks as I storm past them, thinking of expletive words to shout at them. Sending 

a glare their way, I keep my head held high not giving a shit what they’re all thinking as 

I make my way towards the stereo. I unplug the plug as a round of ‘what the fuck’, ‘who 

turned the music off,’ and ‘what the fuck is she doing,’ comes from everyone around me. 

It doesn’t halt me from what I’m about to do. 

 I’m just about to snip the little bugger when a male husky voice comes from behind me. 

Every single hair on the back of my neck stands on edge. Every nerve ending in my body 

is hyper aware and the hair on the back of my neck stands on edge as my skin breaks out 

in goosebumps.

 ‘‘I wouldn’t do that if I were you kitten,’’ he warns.

Snapping my head around, I freeze when I lay my eyes upon the most incredibly 

ripped man I’ve ever seen in my life. Seriously, holy shit, give me a bucket of cold water 

now because I need cooling down. My skin feels like its on fire as I take in the perfection 

before me. His dark hair is short but still long enough to run my fingers through it. It’s 

scruffy and wild, giving him this rough edge look to his physique; I like it. His skin looks 

as soft as a baby’s bottom, giving me the urge to reach out and stroke it to see if it’s as 

soft as it looks. “His skin is flawless” as my sister would say if she were here. His eyes 

are a deep, dark brown colour with long black eyelashes, captivating me with his intense 

stare. Time has stopped all around me as my feet stay rooted to the spot while I keep 

looking over at his magnificent features. He has a five o’clock shadow on his strong jaw, 

which helps go with the bad boy look he has going on. What has me gawking though is 

that he’s shirtless, only wearing a pair of low hung baggy black shorts. His hard chest is 

glistening with sweat and I watch, fascinated, when I see a trickle of sweat drip down his 

chest, over the ridged muscle of his stomach, making me want to taste it with my tongue.

Holy fuck! Did I really just picture that?

It’s not like I can help it either; the bloke is packing some serious muscle. I swear I 

can feel drool foaming from my mouth.

 ‘‘Like something you see kitten?’’ he drawls, looking at me amused. 

I snap out of my lustful daze, trying to ignore my flaming red face. 

 ‘‘How about you put down the scissors,’’ he demands, making me shiver from the 

demanding tone in his voice.

Lisa Helen Gray (1987) born in Birmingham. All Lisa has ever wanted to do in life, apart from be a mother, is to read and write, and at a certain age she wanted to be a princess.
We can all dream, right?
Serious note though, she has been a passionate reader ever since her Nan first handed her The Three Gollywogs by Enid Blyton. After that, she lived in a land of fantasy. 
First came Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then Angel, and it went on to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that there is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels.
She got into reviewing other author’s novels, and then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If I could I'd wish it all away (2014). 

She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn't got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty Little Liars, walking dead, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and of course, Veronica Mars. 

Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books
