Cassandra is a strong woman who has survived abandonment by her parents, an emotionally abusive marriage and single parenthood to become a successful writer. She has always taken care of herself but wonders what it would be like to have someone share her life. Aiden seems like a perfect choice. He is sensitive, sexy and truly cares about her feelings. He also happens to be her brother-in-law. Just when she thinks that they may have a chance to be together, thoughts of his best friend Travis creeps into her psyche.
Travis and Aiden are closer than friends. They have shared the ups and downs in childhood as well as their women. Yet Cass stirs a passion and possessiveness that neither man expected. How can they pursue a relationship with her knowing that someone will get hurt? It seems like a no-win situation unless they find a solution.
Ms. Austin has created a unique and sexy story of consenting adults in a rather unconventional love triangle. Each character loves each other in their own way but misunderstandings could prevent them from being happy. It takes strong communication and a whole lot of loving to find a happy medium with a lasting friendship and relationship to boot. PASSIONATE REALITIES is a good debut for Ms. Austin. I look forward to reading more from this talented author.
