Synopsis

Liberty Montgomery is many things:

A dutiful daughter.
Perfect wife-in-training.
Easy to manipulate.
Compliant.

But secretly she wants more.

For years, Liberty has dreamed of a life filled with opportunities—a life where she makes the decisions, living by her own rules. Unfortunately, her parents have other plans for her, ones that involve her submission and total obedience. Every attempt to break free from their control is met with threats, leaving her feeling trapped. Just when all seems hopeless, Liberty meets Oliver Nichols. With just two words, be brave, he stirs up her secret longings for more . . . friendship, fun, and independence. He almost has her believing her dreams are possible. However, taking a stand can be terrifying when you've spent your entire life pleasing others.

Are some chances worth taking? What would she risk for freedom?


Excerpt

“Ready?” he asked, brushing his hair away from his face, aware I was checking him out. His hand beckoned for me to approach and I let out a soft sigh. He stepped away from the table, waiting for me to come stand in front of him, sandwiched between him and the table. “I’m going to have you break, okay?” He moved in closer and I prayed my legs wouldn't give out. I could feel every inch of him pressed against me.
“Okay,” I stammered. Oliver chuckled low in my ear and I tried not to shiver from the sensation. Bending me forward with his body, he showed me how to position the stick, his arm alongside mine. We fit perfectly.
“Still with me, Liberty?” he asked. I didn't want to move. We were so connected, the position so intimate, I was sure I’d melt on the spot. Andrew had tried holding me this close and all it did was make my skin crawl. It was the complete opposite with Oliver. This made me feel reckless.

Review by

Wow!!! I just finished Loving liberty. This new adult contemporary book was like no other book I've read. I have so many emotions running through my veins sad, happy, and angry this book gives it all to you. When reading it reminded me of Cinderella. Instead of a wicked step mother treating her step child like a servant, there was Liberty; her evil obnoxious sister and their parents who are making poor liberty live and breathe the way they see fit, including not talking unless asked a direct question. There own version of a step ford wife in training. I wanted to jump into the book and save liberty. Until Oliver comes to her rescue and shows her she has power to be free herself. Well done it was a perfect not needing sex to keep you drawn in, but the pure adrenaline pumping through your veins on what happens next. Loved the ending!!
