When she finally found her soul mate, he came with one big snag: a wife. Brooklyn found herself fighting off her soon to be ex husband and her lover’s wife. She knew what she was doing was wrong and yet… she couldn’t turn back. No matter how much pain she may cause, it was too late. Brooklyn and Bo, each unhappily married to others, must decide whether to stay with their spouses or give up everything for their love.

Home Wrecker is the first book in a three part series that follows the main character, Brooklyn throughout her childhood, adult life and then what seems like an “endless” journey towards redemption for her and her new love interest, Bo.
Brooklyn and Bo, each unhappily married to someone else, have to decide whether to stay with their spouses or give up everything for each other. What would Brooklyn's husband and Bo's soon-to-be ex-wife do to break them up?

Author Bio:
Brenda Perlin is an independent adult contemporary fiction author. Brenda evokes emotional responses in her readers by using a provocatively unique writing style. Her latest book, Home Wrecker, captures the soul-wrenching conflicts of a personal struggle for emotional fulfillment.
Ever since Brenda was a child, she has been fascinated with writing. She draws her biggest inspiration from Judy Blume. This sparked a passion in Brenda to pursue personal expression through writing. Once she was old enough to go to coffee shops alone, Brenda recalls losing herself in the world of writing, all while documenting her ideas on paper napkins.
“There is really no creative process, I just write,” – Brenda Perlin
Brenda’s first book, Home Wrecker I (Home Wrecker Chronicles), was published with Master Koda Select Publishing. Within a short time, the book developed a strong fan base and is continuing to grow as it both entertains its readers and leaves them in a state of profound reflection. In the near future, Brenda would like to have Home Wrecker I expanded into a trilogy in order to tell the untold stories of her characters.


Guest Post:
“He was also very jealous and had trust issues; traits I did not possess. In fact, I trusted to a fault.”
I have always been very trusting. Maybe trusting to a fault. I always believed that if someone wanted to be with me, then I could rest assured he would be with me, solely. In the past, I have always been someone you could trust. Sometimes I trusted when I shouldn’t have. I believe if you don’t trust someone, the results will come out in negative ways. Even though I never gave my husband reason not to trust me he always had fears and doubts. He saw me as naive and thought every guy I came in contact with had an ulterior motive. I always had to reassure him of my loyalty. Now that I have been caught as a Home Wrecker my reputation as a cheater follows me around.
 “I had just turned thirty. That was enough in itself to be depressed about. I never thought I would be this age and feel this worthless.”
At thirty I was newly married but I didn’t feel like a blissful newlywed. Life got very serious and my husband had new expectations of the role I should play in the marriage. He wanted me to be more goal oriented and work harder. Now that we were husband and wife he presumed I would change. All of a sudden he expected me to be a different person than I was. From day one I felt like I was letting him down. That is when I started feeling like I was walking on eggshells. I was not comfortable in my own home. I think all these things contributed to me becoming a Home Wrecker.
“I had lost all credibility because it seemed like so many things I had said I would never do, I somehow had done, or was considering doing.”
It is so strange to think of the things that I have done in the last year and a half. I was always the good girl and saw myself as such. No one would have ever called me a Home Wrecker without laughing. With me, it was always, what you see is what you get. I always did the right thing with unselfish intentions. I have learned that sometimes you have to go with your heart and put yourself first. I now look at people differently. Before I would have been quick to judge. Now I try to consider the whole picture. I don’t want to be closed minded and make rash judgments like I did in the past. I know what it feels like to be misjudged and it feels wrong.
