“Good morning beautiful.” Sitting behind the counter on a stool he watches Adaline finish cooking their breakfast. Putting the food on a plate she grins back at him.
“Did you sleep well, hun?” Adaline kisses Dayton on his cheek before handing him a plate and fork. “Would you like something to drink?”
“Sure. Whatcha got sexy?” Dayton asks biting into his bacon.
“There is orange juice or milk or water. Choose your weapon” Adaline grins at him.
“I will take some orange juice. Thank you.”
Adaline grabs him some orange juice and gives him his glass before sitting down next to him with her plate. The two of them eat their food speaking over things that go on in their lives while finishing their food. As they finish their food Dayton tells her that he has to leave for work soon.
“Would you like me to come over later or anything?” He asks her before kissing her on her cheek.
“If you want to, I have work until 7 tonight so anytime after that you can come by if you would like.” Adaline begins cleaning up their food and glasses.
“I will see you later then” Dayton leaves the house and begins his route to his house to change and get to work. Adaline finishes cleaning the kitchen then takes a shower getting ready to leave for a long day at work. Stepping out of the shower Adaline lets out a scream.
“Who the hell are you!” She screams wrapping her towel tighter around her naked body.
“That does not matter little lady, what matters is who you are and what you know.” The strange man sits at the end of her bed and looks at her expectantly. “Oh my apologies, you can get dressed I won’t look”
The man turns his head not looking at her as she grabs some clothes and throws them on quickly. She takes her time getting her clothes on looking around for a weapon she could use. Finding nothing she looks the man straight on.

As soon as Adaline makes the commitment to the mafia however her life becomes riddled with lies, betrayal, lust, and murder. When the one person Adaline always thought she could believe in becomes the one person she can’t trust a question begins to pull at Adaline’s mind one day will she live through it or will she find herself in an early grave just as her parents did? Adaline is unsure of the answer but will do anything for the possibility of becoming a famous news journalist.
4 **** Good example of stream of consciousness style
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
I had never read a book by Alexandra Forry before so I was very excited to have a chance to discover a new author. And she doesn’t disappoint. She’s a got a fresh voice and a unique style, which required some getting used to on my part. I tend to get a bit grumpy when a story has grammar issues or typos. At first, I thought that was the case with the ARC I was given; but after a while I thought it’s just her style of writing and I respect an author who’s brave enough to break rules and conventions. After all, stream of consciousness writing is quite challenging.
Confessions of Us is a short read, mainly because you’ll be turning the pages, trying to understand what’s happening. The author did a good job with characters’ development; the plot is engaging, the setting is interesting, and the rhythm is fast. She also takes a great risk with an unconventional ending. I don’t write spoilers because I don’t like reading them so that’s all I’ll say about it.
I recommend this book for readers looking for a new author with a distinct style and a refreshing take on the contemporary romance genre.
