When You Don't Have a Choice

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
After being abandoned by her parents at a very young age, Hailey Nix has worked hard to get through school and make something of herself. Her lifetime alone has taught her that it’s better to be self-sufficient and not depend on anyone for anything. When she meets Andrew, she’s shocked at how quickly he slips through all the defenses it’s taken her a lifetime to build. More

About Wendi Cassel

Who really wants to hear about my life? The truth is, I can’t tell you too much about myself because I’m in the Witness Protection Program. Everything about my life is just an illusion. On the outside, I appear to be a single mom raising two great boys in the grand ol’ state of Texas. (I don’t know where they got these two kids to play my children, but they are damn cute!) In reality, I’m a supermodel billionaire who had to “dumb down” my appearance—not to mention my checking account—for this new life they’ve inserted me into.

In this new life, I work full time, so I don’t get to write nearly as much as I would like. When I do find the time to write, I often find myself reading other novels instead of working on my own. My favorite authors right now are S.C. Stephens, Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover, Olivia Cunning, and Kristen Ashley. I blame each of them for my procrastination because if their books weren’t so good, I’d get a lot more writing done.

When You Don’t Have a Choice is my first attempt at writing. Please feel free to contact me via wendicassel@facebook.com and let me know what you think of my novel. As long as your feedback doesn’t include the phrase “It’s complete crap,” then your comments (positive and gently negative) are greatly appreciated. Just don’t ask me what I saw happen with Guido “The Machine Gun” Grimaldi that night, or I’ll have to start a new life elsewhere, and that would really suck.

I am typically a "slow and easily bored" reader, I'm lucky to finish one in a month. This one, two days, a record for me! The story, characters, twists and turns will keep you so intrigued that you will not be able to put it down.

If you have not read this book, then I'm begging you....yes, begging you....to add it to your bookshelf. Then, bump it up to the top of that to-be-read shelf that accumulates so much dust. Dust if off, pick it up, and lose yourself in this alluring story! You won't regret it!

Tailspin! That's exactly what I found myself in from the first sentence, not the first page, the very first sentence in this book! Wendi Cassel has delivered a brilliant tale of desire, betrayal, healing, and commitment to the pages, unlike any other I've read. There are so many times while reading this book that I found myself holding my breath one minute and squeeing with delight the next.

This is not a love at first sight story, although there is an attraction or fascination at first sight. The pacing of the romance that blossoms between Andrew and Hailey is perfectly paced. But, this story isn't just about a romance between Andrew and Hailey. It is so much more! There are betrayals on so many levels. Family secrets that have been hidden for years are uncovered....so many family secrets! Torment of one family became commonplace. Yet, there is healing in so many different ways. The chapter headings alone seem to tell a story of their own, and they are so fitting.

Okay, so what did this book do for me? It made me cry...and squee...and swoon...and scream OMG along with a few expletives. My heart was torn out at one point, but stitched together and put back in my body the next moment. My breath was taken away, but I was recusitated only to be transformed. Have you ever experienced that feeling that something really bad is coming, but you don't know what it is?
