Plot:  How far would you go to protect the ones you love?

Some things are better left forgotten, but for Caitlyn Michelson forgetting is not something that she can do. After the brutal death of her sister, she packs up her four year old daughter Carrie and moves across the country, all in an attempt to get away from her sister’s killer, Robin Quinton.

After blackmailing Robin she believes that she will finally be free to live her life. However Caitlyn was naive to think her threats would work against the man who brutally murdered her sister. It’s only when she meets gorgeous bad boy biker Cage Carter that she finally begins to feel like she is living again.

Will lady luck finally be on her side? Or will everything she has be torn away from her?

How far will you go to protect those you love?

Well, for Caitlyn Michaelson she will be put to the utmost test when the safety of her and her family is in the midst…will she succumb the oncoming threat?


Better Left Forgotten was a actually a really good read and a lovely introduction for me into the world of Ms. Lisa Helen Gray.

Still reeling from her sister’s brutal murder, you see main protagonist Caitlyn really flourish the most throughout the plot. She goes from this distant, obscure person with a lot of trust issues to a strong and self-sufficient woman learning how to let go of her haunted past and live in the present.

That’s not to say that she doesn’t have any help though. She has the steamy “bad boy biker” Cage Carter and her adorable daughter, Carrie, by her side to thank for such a miraculous turnaround.

But when blackmail and remnants of a time Caitlyn thought she had long forgotten and left behind reeks its ugly head, what will she do? And with her child and new love interest at stake, how will she (and Cage) defy the odds of her sister’s murderer while trying to stay alive? Read and you will find out!

##An awesome, awesome read that I wholeheartedly enjoyed! Loved every minute of it(♥)! Can’t wait for more from this series!

“Enough is enough,” I chant in my head as I walk across the lawn towards the sound.
   As I’m walking along, I notice the extension cable that leads to just the plug I’m after. I head over, ignoring the stares from the men around me. The women just give me curious looks as I storm past them, thinking of expletive words to shout at them. Sending a glare their way, I keep my head held high not giving a shit what they’re all thinking as I make my way towards the stereo. I unplug the plug as a round of ‘what the fuck’, ‘who turned the music off,’ and ‘what the fuck is she doing,’ comes from everyone around me. It doesn’t halt me from what I’m about to do.
   I’m just about to snip the little bugger when a male husky voice comes from behind me. Every single hair on the back of my neck stands on edge. Every nerve ending in my body is hyper aware and the hair on the back of my neck stands on edge as my skin breaks out in goosebumps.
     ‘‘I wouldn’t do that if I were you kitten,’’ he warns.
Snapping my head around, I freeze when I lay my eyes upon the most incredibly ripped man I’ve ever seen in my life. Seriously, holy shit, give me a bucket of cold water now because I need cooling down. My skin feels like its on fire as I take in the perfection before me. His dark hair is short but still long enough to run my fingers through it. It’s scruffy and wild, giving him this rough edge look to his physique; I like it. His skin looks as soft as a baby’s bottom, giving me the urge to reach out and stroke it to see if it’s as soft as it looks. “His skin is flawless” as my sister would say if she were here. His eyes are a deep, dark brown colour with long black eyelashes, captivating me with his intense stare. Time has stopped all around me as my feet stay rooted to the spot while I keep looking over at his magnificent features. He has a five o’clock shadow on his strong jaw, which helps go with the bad boy look he has going on. What has me gawking though is that he’s shirtless, only wearing a pair of low hung baggy black shorts. His hard chest is glistening with sweat and I watch, fascinated, when I see a trickle of sweat drip down his chest, over the ridged muscle of his stomach, making me want to taste it with my tongue.
Holy fuck! Did I really just picture that?
It’s not like I can help it either; the bloke is packing some serious muscle. I swear I can feel drool foaming from my mouth.
      ‘‘Like something you see kitten?’’ he drawls, looking at me amused.
I snap out of my lustful daze, trying to ignore my flaming red face.
       ‘‘How about you put down the scissors,’’ he demands, making me shiver from the demanding tone in his voice.

Lisa Helen Gray (1987) born in Birmingham. All Lisa has ever wanted to do in life, apart from be a mother, is to read and write, and at a certain age she wanted to be a princess.

We can all dream, right?

Serious note though, she has been a passionate reader ever since her Nan first handed her The three Gollywogs By Enid Blyton. After that she lived in a land of fantasy.

First came Buffy the vampire slayer, then Angel, and it went on to twilight and The hunger games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that they're is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels.

She got into reviewing other authors novel, then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If i could I'd wish it all away (2014).

She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn't got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty little liars, walking dead, The originals, The vampire diaries and of course Veronica Mars.

Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books.
