Character Bio: Lauren Monroe [and G!veaway]

Today’s tour stop, presented to you by A Tale of Many Reviews, features a Lauren Monroe character bio. Lauren sounds like an interesting character; she’s got that waning self confidence behind her natural beauty. But when push comes to shove, she’s fiercely protective of those she loves. 

Name: Lauren Monroe

Age: 26

Physical description: “She had always been pretty, but now there was a maturity, a confidence, a womanly quality to her that made her that much more beautiful. She still had that dark red hair, those impossibly long eyelashes, and those eyes. Forest green. But they could turn dark with protectiveness, or desire. Or pain.”

Quote: “Your son,” she said slowly, giving due weight to every word, “is one of the best people I’ve ever known…and I feel sorry for you that you don’t know him.”

Best quality: patient/understanding

Worst quality: doesn’t always stand up for herself


When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her.
Or that it would end so painfully.
Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation.
As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael’s past prove to be too much to overcome?
