Against All Odds by Ju Ephraime
One man’s depression and distress over the ending of his long-term relationship sends him spiraling into the arms of a young, stunning barmaid that not only saves him from a life of loneliness, but convinces him it is possible to renew the fires of passion again – with the right person. Combining love and sensuality, author Ju Ephraime brings her most loved character Jayden back in the sequel to Temptation To Sin for an explosive sensual love affair with the vivacious young Genna. Ms. Ephraime’s writing pulls the reader into Jayden’s and Genna’s love affair making the reader feel like a voyeur as the trials and tribulations of their new relationship unfolds in Against All Odds (Envision Publishing; Paperback: $9.95; eBook: $3.99; ISBN: 9780983602996).
The story begins when Jayden walks into a pub and sits down to drown himself in liquor to snuff out the unbelievable pain he felt after watching Shannon, who was at one time the love of his life, marry another man …
Six months ago, the woman he had hoped to spend the rest of his life with had told him she had met someone else and would be leaving him, after ten years. Even now, he could still feel the pain and the shock he’d felt when she’d told him. But he had put up a brave front and gone about his life as if it was an everyday occurrence for the love of his life to walk out on him. He thought he had done everything humanly possible to make life comfortable for Shannon, but evidently, he had not given her the one thing she wanted most—sex, and lots of it. He had nothing against sex, but Shannon had pretended she had no interest in it the few times he had made any advances toward her. He had foolishly thought she would come to him if her feelings changed, but as this wedding had clearly shown she had taken her needs elsewhere. Now he was left to pick up the pieces and move on with his life. How? He’d no clue where to begin. He was hurting like he’d never thought he could hurt.
