Release Blitz & Review - That Was Yesterday - HJ Bellus

Title: That Was Yesterday
Author: HJ Bellus
Genre: Contemporary Romance (standalone)
Release Date: December 4, 2018

One call. That’s all it took to change everything. The sweet voice on the other end of the line delivered a blow I never saw coming. Fighting for our country’s freedom and staring death in the eye was nothing compared to this news.

History has one hell of a way repeating itself. Kate Wilson’s voice didn’t waver once as she turned my worst nightmare into a reality, and her words weaved a cruel poetic justice. 

I hadn’t been back home in over two years. Once I pulled into the one-horse town, I was greeted by the gorgeous blonde.

Kate extended her hand and offered me a warm smile. The connection was made. The innocent beauty has no idea that she just flipped my life upside down.

She’d unearthed secrets that can never be buried.

“Full circle, 5 stars”

Max had a horrible start to life and didn’t get any reprieve until he met the people who would become his parents. Everything was on the upswing, he had the life most would want. A gorgeous girlfriend, a college football scholarship, etc. But he felt unsettled. Fast forward to years later and he gets the shock of his life that has him finally going home.

Kate is teacher who can’t help but love one of her students. When she suspects abuse, she goes above and beyond to try and get this kid a solid foundation which leads her to Max. She thought she was going to help Finn then walk away but found so much more. Will Max’s past stop her from letting her in?

That Was Yesterday got me right in the heart. My heart hurt for Max and Finn but filled with love because of Kate and the secondary characters. That Was Yesterday was one of those stories that played out in front of me like a movie and there was no stopping until it was over. Right now, I’m sitting her with a slight book hangover and craving to know who’s story come’s next. I hope Bellus give’s us more of this family because I’m not ready to say goodbye.
