Blog Tour Wife Number Seven by Melissa Brown

Monday, July 21, 2014


Lipstick. Bright, red lipstick. Nothing but lipstick. Even though it’s against our faith to wear a color that screams of sexual promiscuity and deviant behavior, I’m not allowed to protest. But, I want to. So badly.

You see, there’s more to me than the braid that spills down my back. More to me than the layers of heavy fabric that maintain my modesty. And so much more than the oppressive wedding band that adorns my finger--the same band that each of my sister wives wear. So much more. To protest would be sinful. I must keep sweet, that is my duty.

So I’ll wear the lipstick. I’ll do as I’m told. And I’ll do my best to silence the resistance within me, to push him from my mind. If only my heart would do the same.




"Our duty is to produce children our husband for Heaverly Father.
It is not to fornicate or indulge our desires."

Wow this book was amazing!!I don't think 5 stars are enough for this book!!I'm so impressed!This is not your typical romance so be prepared!!

Do you know about Mormons??It's a religious and cultural group of people who have a unique view of cosmology, and believes.The men have more than one wives.This was so new for me.As a Greek I didn't know how is it a man to have more than one wife.In my country we are have monogamy and we are free to choose with who we want to be.So when I read the tittle and the synopsis,I wanted to read it immidiately!!And when I start it,I was so hooked that I couldn't put it down!!I didn't want to finish it!This was so differend from the books I have read!This is a book about a differend way of life,something that I didn't know!I felt like I was a part of the story,I felt everything!!The aghony,sadness,fear,love,desperation...everything!!!It captivated me so much!!Thta sometimes I wanted to cry,scream and others to smile from hapinness!!!

This is Brinley's story..She is the seventh wife of a polygamy family.She tries to follow the *right* path that has been set out for her by the Prophet.However she always wondered how it would be to be free...and live how she want..


One day she will meet Porter who will make her think more and more about a life which she will be free and can live for herself!


Brinley was such an amazing character!!I loved how her character was developed!!

I will not say anymore about the story,because I think this book must read from all the women!!!I feel so sad about women that have this type of life!But I can't judge them because this is how they have learn to live!! 

I higly recommend it!!!


4.5 Be Sweet When You Want Stars

Cue the violins :)

This was my first book my Melissa Brown, and to say that I'm impressed is just skimming the surface of my feels right now. You know that feeling you get when you read a story that's so well written and so fresh? Well that's the feeling I have right now. Wife Number Seven, was like sitting down with Brinley and having a good chat. Not once did I feel like a was someone looking in while reading this book, I actually felt like I was a part of the story.

So, if you haven't figure it out yet, Wife Number Seven is about a community that practices polygamy. The woman's role is too serve her husband, the prophet and the Heavenly father, her role is to also have children, she also has sister wives who have the same duty. Now there are two sides to this story people, and Melissa wrote is so well and I felt like she gave me, the reader, a choice on how she wanted to feel about the subject this book addresses. Polygamy is a controversial subject, and while I connected with Brinley's character, I could also understand the way her sister wives felt.

We take our freedom as woman for granted, and rightfully so because it's our to take. But when you imagine another woman not having the same freedom as you do, you suddenly appreciate it more. That's what I loved about this book, it dealt with a very real subject. Brinley's awakening is beautiful to read about, because that's what this book is about an Awakening. "Watching" her become a stronger and more assertive woman was awesome and I loved that the characters in this book were so perfectly imperfect.

Wife Number Seven, touched me and is one of those books that will stay with me for a long time.
