Abandoned, pregnant and bi-polar, Katie McGowan's going crazy on that God-forsaken rock the Moon! Katie McGowan is bi-polar, and she's run the gamut of medications. Everyone's telling her she should go to the Moon and have microchip surgery, but she's afraid she'll become a robot. In a last-ditch, tough love effort to force her to get the chip, her husband, Scott takes her to the Moon and divorces her when she decks him. Then she discovers she's pregnant. She can't have the surgery or take her meds until after the baby's born. Scott's elated when he hears he's going to be a father and naturally assumes Katie will take him back. He always intended to remarry her as soon she had the surgery. He has no clue how badly he hurt her, how thoroughly he's broken her trust-or that he may not get her back at all.
The second book in the Moon Rock series is a riveting futuristic romance that captures the heart. Katie McGowan is bi-polar and she’s going crazy on the God-forsaken rock the Moon. Scott McGowan in a last ditch effort to get Katie the help she needs, he divorces her, forcing her to grow up. Katie discovers she pregnant, she can’t take her meds and Scott thinks she’ll trust him now?
This steady paced plot keeps the reader on their toes with lots of drama and a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. The author uses well written scenes and events to bring the story to life and capture the imagination. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and the drama of Katie’s life keeps tensions high and the reader can’t help but get caught up in her story.
There is no doubt that Scott loves Katie and he’s trying to do what’s best for her and he knew the risks he was taking with his actions. The reader can certainly empathize with both characters emotional turmoil and the resulting problems. Luckily for Katie, the characters from the previous story return in this drama and give Katie the support she needs to get through her emotional drama. The reader is moved to tears during some of the scenes and smiles when Katie shows improvement and certainly cheers when she gets her happily ever after.
The author has shared a very moving romance that brings awareness of the bi-polar disorder to light and Katie’s case is pretty extreme probably because her past made things worse for her. But this story gave her hope and a way out of what must have been a tragic way to be and Moon Rock certainly sounds like the perfect place to be whether you have emotional issues or not.
