Back To Reality

~ Synopsis ~

Her past: Emanuel Mills was her first love. The guitar playing, adventure seeking, IT whiz was everything she ever wanted.
Her present: Tyree Barker was her last love. The cultured, educated, successful entrepreneur was everything she needed.
But when Sahara Lee’s past and present collided, a series of events occurred that changed her life forever, leaving her future up in the air.
As a college freshman, a tragic accident changed the course of Sahara’s life. Ten years later, just when she started putting her life back together, Sahara’s world was rocked again due to a similar accident.
Heartbroken and guilt ridden, Sahara fell into old, familiar habits before quickly realizing that she wasn’t the same Sahara Lee anymore. Unable to live a lonely, loveless, isolated life anymore, Sahara decided that the way she coped before wasn’t going to work this time around.
Time didn’t heal her wounds, but forgiveness might.


3 1/2-4 STARS

This is another great job by Danielle Allen. I am extremely thankful & excited to be part of this tour!!

The only thing that really got to me was that Sahara came across as being weak and extremely indecisive. I mean come on! She has two amazing men and she keeps running!! NOOOOO!! I wanted to scream at her A LOT! LOL Also, we have seen that scenario many times before, henceforth, the 3 1/2-4 stars.

With that said, I still absolutely loved the book! I was super proud of the way she finally transitioned into a stronger woman throughout the book! She finally realized that she deserved to be happy! Danielle incorporated so much emotion with these characters! I would go from angry to sad to happy to hotttttttt to hotttttter to ecstatic to shocked to mouth opened, in 1 chapter!! I was happy with the ending! I was TOTALLY shocked and surprised!! Without giving away who she finally picked, I was happy with her choice!! Her soul mate, best friend, perfect match!!! Great job!! I can’t wait to see what Danielle has in store for us in the future!!

Author Bio:

I am a married event planner and life coach. My awesome friends and family and my amazing husband make my life sweet. I love to have fun and enjoy the life I’ve been blessed with. I love shopping and football with equal fervor. I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read and I enjoy sharing my love of books with anyone who will listen. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression.

With degrees in psychology, human services, and marriage and family counseling, I have a unique perspective on life, love and the pursuit of happiness. As an author, I combine an active imagination and life experiences to create stories that are easily relatable and intentionally intriguing. I want to offer you a peek into someone else’s life and for you to get lost in their story, their trials, their triumphs. My ultimate goal is to create a character or a story that stays with you long after you’ve put the book down.

So in a nutshell: I plan. I teach. I read. I write. I watch. I critique. I shop. I play. I love.

To know me is to love me.
