BLOG TOUR: A Solitude of Passion by Addison Moore

When old love and new love collide an impossibility is born.
When Lee Townsend’s husband leaves on a community outreach to China, the last thing she expects is for him to never come back—for him to have tragically met his demise.
Lee goes on to marry his adversary and settles into life and business with him, merging her vineyard with his and creating a worldwide conglomerate.
Five years later a twist of fate brings the past back to her and forces Lee to make a decision that will change the landscape of her life forever.
Secrets emerge, forcing relationships to be examined—magnifying the surprising true underpinnings of her marriage to both Mitch and Max.
Lee’s heart is unwilling to surrender her love for either Mitch or Max.
She must choose to carry forward with the past or present. 
Lee has a choice to make.
Mitch can’t figure out how to win.
Max never loses.

Addison Moore is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author who writes contemporary and paranormal romance. Previously she worked as a therapist on a locked psychiatric unit for nearly a decade. She resides on the West Coast with her husband, four wonderful children, and two dogs where she eats too much chocolate and stays up way too late. When she's not writing, she's reading.

“You going to sleep?” I trace the outline of his lips with my finger, soft as a feather.

His eyes spring open. “Not if my services are needed.” His lips curve into a devilish grin. “You’re worried about the baby, aren’t you?” He rubs slow circles in the small of my back.

“No, it’s not that.”

“Oh.” It comes out measured like he knows. He doesn’t say his name, neither do I, but Mitch lingers on the bed with us like a phantom, like he always has, only I’m too much of a coward to admit it.

I run the pad of my finger over his ear, tug at his lobe before tracing the outline of his brows, the bridge of his nose, his soft, full lips.

“You’re a masterpiece,” I whisper. God can be very proud of this one. A Davidian beauty. David was flawlessly beautiful, perfectly handsome, and it’s so true of Max in every possible way.

“No, Lee, I believe that would be you,” he teases, pulling a kiss off my lips like he was stealing the moment.

I was super excited to find out that I was able to read and review Addison Moore's A Solitude of Passion.  So, I dove in right away and let me say...WOW!!
Within the first 20 pages of the book you are completely thrown for a loop and then it is a crazy roller coaster of emotions all the way to the very end.  
I literally felt my chest ache from events that transpired to getting down right pissed off because it didn't go the way I wanted.  But, needless to say, I was captivated from start to finish with this story.
Addison Moore is a brilliant writer that really knows how to draw her reader in and then grab at their heart strings making them stretch to the point of breaking.  
Being able to read from multiple POVs and seeing each one's journey through the struggles of what life decisions were made really opens up your heart and as you feel their joys, pains, passion, you also get to understand the whole picture.  I really don't think reading this book from one person's POV would have done it justice and I think that is why this book is as fabulous as it is....Allowing the reader to connect with the main characters individually truly brought me in to the pages of the story.
I struggled so much during this book because love triangles are so hard for me.  I hate the angst and indecisiveness that goes along with it, but when a book is written this good, those emotions and thoughts seem to fall to the side and you get caught up in the lives of these characters.  You are invested and need to know just how this is going to end.
And how this ends, *sighs* how do I even begin to tell about it....Truthfully, I won't....I can't...
There is so much that happens within this tale that in order for you to know what I am talking about, you will have to read this book....and yes...YOU NEED TO READ IT...
A Solitude of Passion is a tale of gut-wrenching love that twists you in to knots.  Full of surprises of events that I did not see coming, you will be biting your nails til the very end wondering what that final outcome will be.
