*** Review ***

Loved this book!

Kori just suffered a great loss: her boyfriend,Blake, died in a car crash. The same day that she lost him, she gained the greatest gift he could give her: their son Rhett. She moves back home, where she struggles to move on and where she is confronted by the her first love and the man that broke her heart: Reed.
Reed broke Kori's heart when he cheated on her. It is something he deeply regrets. He wants to be there for Kori and Rhett. But will she be able to forgive him?

This is a very emotional book. It is a story of second chances , forgiveness and being able to move on when tragic things happen in life. Although it makes you grab your tissues, it also makes you laugh.

Kori is a fighter. Although in the beginning she couldn't deal with her loss, she decided that she needed to live and be the mother Rhett needed her to be. She is very stubborn and even though she still has feelings for Reed, she fights them. She is also afraid to let Reed in. Loved that she did her best to keep the memory of Blake alive and told Rhett about him.
Reed is very swoon worthy. He knew it was going to be difficut to win Kori back and show her he deserved her forgiveness and her trust. He did everything he could to show her he had changed. Loved his relationship with Rhett.

This is the first book written by C.A. Harms that I read and I loved it! The writing is great and the story flows very well, making the reader unable to put the book down. Can't wait to read more of her work!

The Inspiration for Beautiful Burn

Beautiful Burn is actually a very personal story, one that's been in my head for a while but I was very hesitant to write. I'm glad I was finally able to write it — I learned so much about myself, love, life, marriage.

Without revealing too much, the book deals with forbidden romance... the student/teacher taboo, and the repercussions of that forbidden love.

I love student/teacher stories and coupled with my tendency to crush on my English professors, it was a natural progression! Much of Beautiful Burn is taken directly from my life in some form or another, I just won't say which parts ;)

If you were to pass me on the street, you probably wouldn’t even look twice. I’m that normal. I’m just like you, only wealthier. I have it all. The kids, the family, the dog, a house on the hill. Hell — I’m so cliché, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I’ve dotted my I’s and crossed my T’s. But what I also have — what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line — are secrets.

Deep, dark, deadly secrets.

We all keep secrets, don’t we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they’d be shocked…right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.

What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren’t always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story?

In this book, I’m laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might’ve seen had they been paying attention.

What I’ve found in life is people often believe lies before they’ll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I’ll let you decide which is which.

Myles didn’t wait for a response. He simply grinned, grabbed her arm just above the elbow, and led her out of the bar, and back to his room. Pain was a given, she’d just realized. And sometimes, you just needed to give into it — no matter what form it showed up in.

For those of you who prefer it straight up, no chaser: Mama to five. Writer. Juggler Extraordinaire. That just about covers it...

The extended version and in third person no less ;): Britney is married to a man she adores (when he isn’t driving her crazy) and is the mother of FIVE pretty amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving her crazy. Her best guess is that it’s genetic. She is the author of three novels, Bedrock, Breaking Bedrock, and Somewhere With You, with plans to release fourth and fifith in 2014. In addition, she founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to almost 1200 members. Currently, she occupies a job she enjoys–serving and running Austin Women’s Network. To further prove that she may in fact be certifiably insane, she decided to pursue her dreams and published her debut novel in May of 2013. Then and only then, could she consider her training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.

She would love it if you would connect with her via Facebook and Twitter.

In her free time, you might find Britney running, reading, or spending time utilizing the wonderful venues that make her city great.
