Blog Tour, Giveaway & Review - The Devil's Playground by Eliza Freed

The Devil’s Playground by Eliza Freed 
(The Faraway Series, #1) 
Publication date: November 10th 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Former U.S. Attorney, Meredith Walsh, took some time off to raise her children. But the time took away everything she once trusted about herself. She’s lost within the mundane confines of her children’s schedules of lacrosse, soccer, Cub Scouts, and math facts. Desperate for a sliver of her former passion, and isolated in the small town her corporate husband relocated her to, she counsels herself on risking her family for the rush of a fling.
But Vincent Pratt, the local chief of police, weakens Meredith’s abhorrence of affairs and her dedication to her family. With him, she finds a new version of herself, one capable of contributing in her new world, and thriving in her lonely home. In spite of the fact, she’s not the kind of woman who has an affair.


So I'm not much for books with cheating.. but I gave this book a shot and OMG I'm so glad that I did. Yes cheating happens far more than we know of and anyone is capable of it. Eliza delivers a story filled with angst, chemistry, attraction, and drama that just make you want to know more and more until you are at the end of the book.

Meredith is a wife and a mother who is not happy with her life. she loves her children but her marriage is another thing. Her husband is ungrateful and she is ready for a change. Since giving up her career as U.S. Attorney she feels as thought she has lost herself.

She meets Vincent on a school trip and thus starts their relationship with secrets and rules. The attraction, chemistry and emotional connection between these two is intense and makes you kind of forget that she is even married to another man at times. That is how amazing Eliza writes.

I can’t wait for the second and final installment of The Faraway Series to see if its as explosive of a conclusion as I think it will be.


Eliza Freed graduated from Rutgers University and returned to her hometown in rural South Jersey. Her mother encouraged her to take some time and find herself. After three months of searching, she began to bounce checks and her neighbors began to talk; her mother told her to find a job.

She settled into Corporate America, learning systems and practices and the bureaucracy that slows them. Eliza quickly discovered her creativity and gift for story telling as a corporate trainer and spent years perfecting her presentation skills and studying diversity. It’s during this time she became an avid observer of the characters we meet and the heartaches we endure. Her years of study have taught her laughter is the key to survival, even when it’s completely inappropriate.

She currently lives in New Jersey with her family and a misbehaving beagle named Odin. An avid swimmer, if Eliza is not with her family and friends, she’d rather be underwater. While she enjoys many genres, she has always been a sucker for a love story…the more screwed up the better.
