Essentialism by LK Collins


Some secrets can destroy…
       Bridgette Schaefer has been through more in her twenty-two years of life than most people survive in a lifetime. Finally, she can see the light at the end of the tunnel and control is within her grasp. With a fresh start ahead, there’s nothing but blank pages to be filled. Unfortunately, a lie by omission quickly weaves
itself into a dangerous web of half-truths. As she battles between right and wrong, she discovers that sometimes there is only defeat when it comes to matters of desire. 
While others can set you free…
         Troy Sorano has one rule – no lies. Yet he’s spent years hiding behind a well-placed mask, forced to hide who he yearns to be. On the outside he’s confident, fun, and sexy-as-sin, but there’s so much more hidden within. When fate intervenes, he can’t help but wonder if Bridgette could be the one to accept him for who he is. As he struggles through his fear of rejection, he discovers he’s not the only one hiding the truth.
Can Bridgette and Troy find what is essential for their
happiness before it’s too late?

Essentialism was so good. I love how the characters are all inter-twined in each of LK Collins books, but each book can be read as a stand alone story. In Essentialism the main character Bridgette meets a guy Troy who is a firefighter with her friends boyfriend. They are all around (friend, boyfriend, Troy, Bridgettes sister and her husband) to help Bridgette move. Bridgette and Troy kind of hit it off but Troy doesn’t know that Bridgette has a boyfriend and Bridgette doesn’t want to tell him because she doesn’t know where that relationship is going and doesn’t think anything will happen with Troy. Then one night Troy finds out and since he was lied to a lot in his last relationship he doesn’t want to give them a try. He is kind of afraid. Bridgette on the other hand wants to do anything she can to make Troy see that they would be perfect together. Then throw in the jealousy of Bridgette’s ex boyfriend and there is just disaster written all through this book. This book is a must read.
5 Stars






LK Collins is first and foremost a devoted wife and mother. She loves music and has openly admitted that she’s addicted to it. Without the strength of the words from some of her favorite artists, what she does…would not be possible. She works the normal 9 to 5 like the rest of the world, but is fortunate that she’s allowed to listen to music for eight hours a day. When she gets home, she turns into Superwoman; juggling the crazy world of being an indie author, a mom,
and a wife. Both her daughter and her husband share names with famous presidents. Her husband is referred to by her readers as “the Prez”, a name well deserved.

LK has had a passion for the worlds created by authors for as long as she can remember and with the support of the Prez, she has successfully self-published three titles in the Life. Destiny. Fate Series. While her books are erotica, they are also known for dramatic storylines that will keep the reader enthralled from page one. Not to mention that while she may write a series, each
is a stand-alone novel offering the reader a happily ever after. No cliffhangers for this author!
