I’m pleased to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for The Years of Us by Gemma Roman. Thank you to Anne Cater for the invitation and to Gemma Roman for allowing me to share an extract of her fabulous book with you all!
About the book:
Life, love and a night that will put their friendship to the test. Following University, a group of friends plan to stick together, but will they survive distance, career changes and lustful love triangles? Life throws unexpected realities their way, and one fateful night brings their lives into harsh perspective. Minor mistakes result in them questioning who they are and who can be trusted.
Can they rebuild the foundations of friendship and move forward or will the test of time finally set them adrift forever?
About the author:
“I’m Gemma Roman.
I have pretty much always been a bookworm. I always loved reading, writing and the creative arts, and also enjoyed dancing which led me to study for a degree in Dance Studies when I was at University. Following graduation, I worked in retail and became interested in the wealth of characters that I came across daily while working in customer service.
I’d had a few ideas rumbling around in my head for a while, and so spent a few years writing my first novel in my spare time. I finally managed to release it in June 2016, and am now planning for the release of my new book ‘All At Sea’, which is due out in 2019.

The Years of Us by Gemma Roman
I can’t believe what I’ve just seen, and feel sick as I get into my car and pull out onto the street.
The amount of one way streets don’t help, and I force myself to concentrate on the road as I speed towards home, knowing I need to leave my past behind and make my future count.
I had plugged in the sat nav, but it always takes a few minutes to kick in and realise where it is. Luckily I remember most of the journey so I plough on, hoping that the roads will disappear behind me like the life I could have had.
I turn the stereo up, switching radio stations until I hear some generic dance music to grab my attention with its repetitive beat. I open the window, letting in some air to keep me alert and prepare me for the motorway journey.
I change lanes, getting lost in a world of my own delayed heartbreak, as I see a headlight suddenly dart across my path. I try to swerve and push my horn, but it’s too late, I hear screaming metal and a mechanical orchestra of horns.
Then nothing but darkness.
