A Woman Gone Mad by @KimberSDawn

Forget everything you know about fairytales. There comes a point in a woman's life when she realizes not everyone gets a happy ending.

And no one knows this better than Lillian Shaw.

The safety of a small southern upbringing and a happy normal family couldn't keep life from chipping away at her.

And nothing leaves its mark like the bite of a broken heart.

Blow after blow, Lillian tries to stay optimistic, but when faced with a choice that could destroy her future, she gives in to the temptation.

When your first true love comes crashing into your happily ever after, you're supposed to walk away. Not fall back in love.

But saying no to Leo was something Lillian could never do...

Once lines are crossed is there any going back?

Or is the risk that Lillian Shaw takes going to leave her broken again...

And this time be enough to make her A Woman Gone Mad?

***Warning: This is not a shy and tender fairytale love story. It's a raw, tragic, and gritty story inspired by true events. This book is not for the faint of heart, it contains graphic language, sex, violence, and drug use. MATURE Audiences Only. Not intended for young adult readers.***

Whoa!!!! Now, whoa. Kimber Dawn you have not just made your mark in the book world in your first book but you have made a statement. A Women Gone Mad is not your every day book but unfortunately a lot of peoples every day life. Its real to the core, rips open your heart and leaves it soaked in tears from chapter to chapter. From the prologue you realize A Women Gone Mad is one of those books you need to read slowly, really grasp each sentence to decipher what is going on with Lilly. 
Lilly is my childhood friend, my school mate, my moms best friend daughter and in some forms myself. She's a woman who was raised you a middle class atmosphere where you must be home before the street lights come on and you will get grounded for a unsatisfactory on your conduct report. In life you are thrown a lot of trials, though mine are different from Lilly or even Kimber its something each person can relate to. The inner strength that gets torn each new heart break in Lillys world reminds me of the choices we each make when given that split in the yellow brick road.
Kimber was able to get into a dark mindset few can express in words, she gives you a women gone mad and theres nothing you can do but pray Lilly finds the glue to start putting her life together before its to late.
I LOVED this book, so outside my realm of happy romance book this brought me to a real place and showed me the strength i myself have. Leo, boy Leo i can only hope for a man like you. 
As you read A Women Gone Mad i hope you have a box of tissues read and aren't afraid of some fcuks here and there, its not for the tender heart but for the strong hearted

What the hell is up y'all?! I'm Kimber, and I really freaking hope y'all enjoy AWGM! If you get a chance, throw me a review up on my FB page, or Goodreads if you loved it! I am a whore for reviews. 
Ahh... let's see, what can I tell you about my self... Well, first of all I'm a straight up whore for many, many things. I'm a wine whore, some would say I'm a functional alcoholic, and I'm totally cool with that title. Now the day my cheese completely falls off my cracker and I lose the functional in that title, well yeah never mind. Even then I'll deny that shit. I'm a whore for Victoria's Secret, no seriously, like my VS Angel's Credit Card stays maxed out, hey, they got cool shit. I have a whole lot of hats, meaning I can be called a billion different things, daughter, wife, mother, labor unit nurse, I sell pussy on the side *coughs* that would be persian kittens, thank you you dirty minded scoundrel, I'm also compulsive blackjack addict, book blogger, book pimp, book whore, Jack Daniels is my favorite boyfriend and my biggest dream, the day I'll acknowledge that I've succeeded in life and can a die a happy woman is the day I get to go two stark naked hour round sexual bouts with Jason Statham. *Sighs* I started writing poems and short stories very early in my life, you know for the Michael's and Leo's and Nick's in my life. I've been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 shades of Grey craze brought to life my inner smut whore where I commenced to read anything and everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn't enough any anymore and I noticed that so many of the authors of my favorite books weren't getting the exposure their work deserved I turned it into a mission, starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one, I then wrote my reviews for my blog and didn't hold back in writing them. I've never done a single thing in my life half way, I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina Taylor of Bad & DirtyBooks I was ready to finally take the plunge and write the story that's been restlessly clawing to get out of my head and onto paper for a VERY long time. I'm a southern girl to my core, a self proclaimed smut whore, and I guess now we can add aspiring author to my hat collection as well. 

Tattooed across my ribs are the words I have always lived by 'Aut viam inveniam aut faciam tibi' Latin for: If I can not find a way, I will make my own.
