Since Kat made her decision, everything around her seems to be falling apart. Not only is she dealing with family’s secrets, lies and deceit but the salon, which is opening around the corner, threatens her livelihood.
To make matters worse her relationship with Max is on the rocks. Although her relationships with Max’s mother, her step-mother and her sister have grown stronger, are they strong enough?
Working tirelessly to save her salon and save her relationship with Max, she is battling everyday to stay focused on her future. But what will the future bring?
Losing Myself is the second book featuring Kat. I highly recommend reading Holding Myself before this one to get full enjoyment as you may feel like you are missing out, plus Holding Myself is a great book.
It was great to catch up with Kat again and the people that are in her life. I was hoping things may have got a bit easier now that her and Max were sorted with the pregnancy, sadly things for Kat seem to be getting worse.
To start with I have to admit that Kat got on my nerves slightly as she is still very insecure and is constantly accusing Max of cheating. If anything I felt sorry for Max and thought Kat needed to grow up. My feelings did change though and my heart ended up going out to Kat whilst I wanted to give Max a good slap.
As if trouble in her personal life isn’t enough, her work life is struggling also. Being self employed myself, I really felt for Kat. Starting her own business and growing it from nothing is a lot of sweat and tears. Not only is business bad, I think the worst thing is for the people that she has always trusted to let her down was even worse.
If you are expecting some sort of light hearted chick lit read with romance and flowers, you won’t find that in here. Losing Myself is so much more. It’s about one woman’s struggle to try and get her life and those of the loved ones round her in order. It’s very much about friendships and relationships as well as building bridges and cutting ties.
Losing Myself is a must read for fans of Holding Myself. It is an endearing read that will fill you full of different emotions and leave you wanting more.
My thanks to Bombshell Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.

Victoria J.Brown has always had a passion for writing. When asked at the age of 9 years old, what she wanted to be when she grew up, her reply ‘an author’ was met with a disheartened response, ‘that jobs like that, don’t happen to people like us!’
Luckily, Victoria didn’t listen to this advice and never gave up on her passion. She continued to write while perusing a career in Marketing after gaining a BA (Hons) in Business and Marketing.
In 2006 her eldest daughter was born and then two years later her 2nd daughter came along. Victoria realised in the midst of the mummy madness, that she’d let her writing dwindle and that nappy-changing, sleepless nights and not being able to go to the toilet in peace could not stop her fulfilling her writing dreams. So when her girls were 3 years old and 18 months old, she decided that sleep was over-rated and enrolled at Teesside University. A year later she proudly left with a MA in Creative Writing, some wonderful friendships and a passion for therapeutic writing. While studying for her MA she was also delighted to win a short-story competition judged by Adele Parks, to which she received publication and mentoring from Adele.
After her MA, Victoria concentrated on writing women’s fiction. She loves writing stories that women can relate to. The Chaos Series grew from her own experience of pregnancy, motherhood and life.
Victoria is also passionate about mental health and likes to write of such issues in her stories. Her dedication to mental health and living life to the full has led her down a spiritual path. Through her learning of spirituality she qualified as a Law of Attraction and NLP Practitioner, which she integrates into her writing. Her inspirational blog includes an A-Z motivational journey with weekly therapeutic creative writing exercises. She has developed this further and will soon launch her inspirational shop. The shop has been created to pass on positivity and love to others … you never know when someone may need to see those messages.
Being accepted by Bombshell Books is a dream come true for Victoria, she hopes that her mantra for giving love always and never giving up will inspire others to follow their dreams and passion.
