What People Are Saying About Willows

"Unique perspective of a relationship gone horridly awry."

“I am familiar with this writer’s style and his ability to display and project emotion outward with surgical precision, always reaching the target who is viscerally reacting to the words on the page. With each new revelation in this story, the confusion, despair and often utter devastation are palpable emotions as the reader is dragged along on the journey. The unique perspective of a relationship gone horridly awry by using a male main character and voice, do seem to provide an extra ‘oomph’ to a strongly emotional tale of a family in dissolution.The tale unfolds in a series of flashbacks and remembered conversations and erotic encounters. Marcus is searching for new footing and a new perspective as he dissects the relationship looking for the ever elusive “missed clues”. His process of allowing despair and bitterness to effect memory of each conversation and moment is one that is familiar to any reader who has lost a love, or lost the rose-tinted vision of the dream for a future with the one they love.” Gaele – Amazon Reviewer

"Stunning debut!"

Love, lust, and betrayal explosively collide in a stunning debut novel. Using a first person narrative, the author exquisitely describes Marcus’s sadness, anger, and confusion at the betrayal of his fiancée, Tami. Despondent and downhearted, Marcus’s realistic reactions allow the reader to become fully engaged with this sympathetic character. Effectively using flashbacks and reminiscing, the author shows how misplaced trust and lies can destroy Marcus and Tami’s relationship, which wasn’t based on mutual respect and communication. Lusty and erotic scenes laced throughout the novel add to the raw emotion of the story. At times, the characters’ palpable emotions, spurred by the intense situations, coupled with stunning plot twists, left me staring at my e-reader with a shocked “O” on my face. Lori

"Love, Heartache, Lies, Scandal..."

“Love, Heartache, Lies, Scandal, Low down dirty unspeakable behavior and that’s just to name a taste of what you get from this awesome story line. I felt like I was living through it myself…. I have fallen in love with Marcus! A man who most women dream of having the love of. If you’re looking for a good read this is it! I’m not an avid reader so it definitely takes an intriguing story to catch and keep my attention, let’s just say I was glued to the screen page after page wondering what next and more than I could’ve ever imagined came to light with each click. I read it in a matter of hours.” Ta’Nisha Gray 

"Oh my!"

Mr. Smith you did it again!!! I had so many emotions reading this book, from anger to arousal… Please keep them coming! I’m excitingly awaiting your next! Margarita
