A Woman Gone Mad by Kimber S. Dawn

"I inhaled it! Yes I read it through the new year celebration I just couldn't put it down!!! This book spoke to me, not only is it real and raw, it is what every and I do mean every woman goes through at some point. We all go a little mad sometimes but we are sane and loved it is BEAUTIFUL. Yeah ladies we all have a Nick and a Leo in our lives, the point is which one do we deserve? This is in my opinion sort of every woman's anthology! Go on ladies inhale it, you know you want to!" 10 Stars ~ The Book Fairy
"Loved this story. It was so real and raw it was unlike anything I've read recently." ~ Rose's Book Blog
"Be prepared for swooning, b !tching, laughing and ugly crying. My sweet baby mother on all that is holy Kimber SLAYED me!" 5 Stars ~ Sweet and Spicy Books
"Kimber S. Dawn has written a book that will make you want to scream, throw your kindle and be like WTF!? And I mean that in the best way possible. This intriguing journey of Lillian Shaw's self discovery is an amazing read. I am so glad I took a chance on this book and this author." 5 Stars ~ Erin, Give Me Books

Forget everything you know about fairytales. There comes a point in a woman's life when she realizes not everyone gets a happy ending.
And no one knows this better than Lillian Shaw.
The safety of a small southern upbringing and a happy normal family couldn't keep life from chipping away at her.
And nothing leaves its mark like the bite of a broken heart.
Blow after blow, Lillian tries to stay optimistic, but when faced with a choice that could destroy her future, she gives in to the temptation.
When your first true love comes crashing into your happily ever after, you're supposed to walk away. Not fall back in love. 
But saying no to Leo was something Lillian could never do...

Once lines are crossed is there any going back? 
Or is the risk that Lillian Shaw takes going to leave her broken again... 
And this time be enough to make her A Woman Gone Mad?

5 Stars clearly isn't enough for this book there isn't a number high enough! What I can say is this needs to be on EVERY TBR list on Goodreads and you can thank me after you read it. I knew this was gonna be an Epic fucking debut, I knew it,  but I didn't know it was gonna Fucking knock me off my ASS and I got a BIG ASS!!! 
    I still haven't found the words that can encapsulate the emotions I felt while reading this book, but lemme try!  I felt this in my heart like I don't even know what right now. This didn't create a book hangover but a damn fucking book black out NOTHING I have read is of this magnitude, stature, or  any other descriptive words that scream this is a FUCKING MASTERPIECE!  Anyone that knows me will tell you that I'm not one to sugar coat or blow smoke up your ASS so I'm not just being the supportive friend here!  Okay  Okay now that I have calmed the Fuck down let me tell you what this book is about.
This is a story based on true events of a journey through the life of very determined, strong young woman.  It will take you back through your teenage years.
You will reminisce on how things in your life at that age played out.  It may even strike a nerve or two I’m just sayin. The love and heartbreak and up and down roller-coaster of life as a teenager will be prominent, while making your way through Lillian Shaw’s life. 
 The realization of adulthood and responsibility come rolling through like a freight train.  You will feel absolutely elated when it seems like her knight in shining amour has finally come to rescue her from the pain and anguish she has endured up to that point.
  Then you will continue to feel the knicks and cracks in her heart that will eventually break and shatter into a million pieces.
  After you compose yourself from the blubbering FUGLY crying mess that you have become, hope sets in as you continue.  Kimber S. Dawn was dead serious when she said forget everything you have been told about fairytales.  This puts your comfort level to the test not like a little pop quiz but a final exam. Just watch the trailer! 
HOWEVER, don’t let it scare you off you will be pleasantly pleased I promise you.  This will be the book that reaches out and touches your soul, one of the few that make an impact in your life.
   Kimber’s writing style will make you laugh, cry, be swooned, reminisce, and laugh and cry some more. Come on, Have I ever steered you wrong? Hell No!!!  Well ok then what Hell are you waiting for get your cute little ass over here and one click this life changing story.

Kimber S. Dawn dropped by Bad & Dirty books on a blog tour stop had some drinks here's what went down y'all it started out normal then all hell broke loose!   

What is something most people don't know about you?
~ My favorite thing in the world, second to landing a kick ass ARC, is playing Zelda... for like 15 fucking hours straight, with game book in hand!

Hardest thing to write in AWGM?
~ All of it, but in different ways. The true elements were hard to put into words or figure out what words to use to correctly describe my feelings at that point in my life. The writers aspect that I found difficult to write was when to smoothly make the pivitol story changes or plot transitions, as well as wrap shit up, both the end of chapters and the end itself.

Kimber's Advice in life is? 
I'm going to have to go totally fucking cliché and say, Just Do it. Whatever the fuck it is, if you aren't happy, change it. If you want something, fucking get it, make it happen. YOLO <- yes, I just learned from my 14 yo daughter what that means today, lol. You only live once, and if life isn't giving you what you want then grab that bitch by the throat and take it.    

Top 3 favorite books?
~ Beautiful Disaster by Francette Phal

Author Bio
What the hell is up y'all?! I'm Kimber, and I really freaking hope y'all enjoy AWGM! If you get a chance, throw me a review up on my FB page, or Goodreads if you loved it! I am a whore for reviews. 
Ahh... let's see, what can I tell you about my self... Well, first of all I'm a straight up whore for many, many things. I'm a wine whore, some would say I'm a functional alcoholic, and I'm totally cool with that title. Now the day my cheese completely falls off my cracker and I lose the functional in that title, well yeah never mind. Even then I'll deny that shit. I'm a whore for Victoria's Secret, no seriously, like my VS Angel's Credit Card stays maxed out, hey, they got cool shit. I have a whole lot of hats, meaning I can be called a billion different things, daughter, wife, mother, labor unit nurse, I sell pussy on the side *coughs* that would be persian kittens, thank you you dirty minded scoundrel, I'm also compulsive blackjack addict, book blogger, book pimp, book whore, Jack Daniels is my favorite boyfriend and my biggest dream, the day I'll acknowledge that I've succeeded in life and can a die a happy woman is the day I get to go two stark naked hour round sexual bouts with Jason Statham. *Sighs* I started writing poems and short stories very early in my life, you know for the Michael's and Leo's and Nick's in my life. I've been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 shades of Grey craze brought to life my inner smut whore where I commenced to read anything and everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn't enough any anymore and I noticed that so many of the authors of my favorite books weren't getting the exposure their work deserved I turned it into a mission, starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one, I then wrote my reviews for my blog and didn't hold back in writing them. I've never done a single thing in my life half way, I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina Taylor of Bad & Dirty Books I was ready to finally take the plunge and write the story that's been restlessly clawing to get out of my head and onto paper for a VERY long time. I'm a southern girl to my core, a self proclaimed smut whore, and I guess now we can add aspiring author to my hat collection as well. 

Tattooed across my ribs are the words I have always lived by 'Aut viam inveniam aut faciam tibi' Latin for: If I can not find a way, I will make my own.
