Rough Terrain - tour header

Wes Davis left Vista Falls when the girl he loved got pregnant and decided they were too young and irresponsible to be parents. He signed the adoption papers, but he never stopped loving the baby he’d never met. Years passed, success found him, but there was a hole in his heart and life that he knew only one thing could fill. His son.
Sage Breville was stunned to learn her ex-boyfriend was back in town. With him came a rush of memories and questions about the kind of life they could have had if she’d been brave enough to stand up to her parents years ago and raise the child she’d so desperately wanted with the man she loved.
There were some wounds time couldn’t heal, and Sage was convinced there was no way back for them. But did Wes see it her way or was he ready to forgive… and move on?

Rough Terrain (Vista Falls #1)Rough Terrain by Cheryl Douglas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sage and Wes were in love. Too young to fully understand that heartbreak was not too far ahead of them. Rough Terrain is a what if story. Faced with a tough choice, Sage makes a decision that she has spent years regretting. She lost Wes, her one true love, and with him went her chance at happiness. I received an ARC of Rough Terrain in exchange for an honest review. Cheryl Douglas is an author that I have become an avid fan of. Her stories are a gritty look into the human soul. Not always pretty but full of sage wisdom and poignant storytelling. With Rough Terrain, she created an atmosphere where the reader was able to glimpse the ramifications youth played in the self-destruction of a love affair that trickled into this couple's adult lives. At the heart of this story is a second chance to mend a broken heart and unite a fractured family.

When one door closes, another one opens. I closed the door to my business for the last time in 2011, which left me with a decision. What now? Find another location and move my nutrition business, go to work for someone else, or take a chance on my dream? I chose the latter and I’ve never looked back!
I’ve always loved reading and writing, but it wasn’t until I jumped in with both feet and decided writing would be my career, instead of just a hobby, that my muse woke up from her deep slumber.

It was like someone flipped a switch inside my head and stories just came pouring out. At the end of the day, I would often look at the keyboard and wonder, ‘Who the heck wrote that? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure it wasn’t me!’

I don’t write books. I tell stories, or rather, I allow my characters to tell their stories through me. I’m not a plotter, never have been, never will be. Why? Because I have no idea how the story will evolve and it’s not my place to manipulate it. My job is to get to know these characters, figure out what makes them tick, then follow their journey wherever it takes me.

When I’m not writing, I’m daydreaming. Thankfully, I have an understanding husband and son who know I’ll re-join the land of the living just as soon as my muse decides it’s quitting time. I don’t work for myself. I work for her. She’s the boss. And I’m okay with that.
