Never Over You Series Boxed Set (Never Over You, #1-3) by Ryleigh Andrews



Bring Me You (Book 1):
Pro quarterback, Ethan Christopher thought he had found his home when he met rock musician, Mia Devereux. She was the welcomed distraction in his football-focused life. Things may not have been perfect. Their individual careers made being together difficult. Her touring. His away schedule. As her success grew, they spent more extended periods apart. But at the end of the day, he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Only her. When Mia met Ethan, she felt a connection unlike any she’d ever felt. She gave him more of herself than she thought was even possible. But she knew it wasn’t enough. There was a lot she didn’t share, couldn’t give him. An event two decades in her past made sure of that. Those demons that she’d so carefully tucked away wanted out. As Mia struggled with the stress of touring and being apart from Ethan, her defenses weakened, allowing the demons to fight their way to the surface, leaving her in a vulnerable place. A place where bad choices were made. Choices that both of them will regret. Can Mia and Ethan's love survive her past? Or will it fall apart under the weight of her choices?  
Still Into You (Book 2):
What happens when you continually run from your demons? When Mia watched Ethan walk out of her life, she did what she did best—she ran—ran from the only person who ever made her feel safe; home. They work even harder to try and find you. He was her everything and she let him slip away. And when they do … they’ll come at you full force, guns blazing. Hitting rock bottom forced Mia to stop. Now she needed to dig herself out. Figuring out how to do that required help, maybe a plan. She had to face those demons. Not an easy task when she spent her entire life running from them. Would Ethan still be there for Mia after all was said and done? Or would she find that he had moved on? Or would he still be into her?  
Never Over You (Book 3):
Strange how life deals the cards sometimes … Life was perfect for Mia Devereux. “You can always have me, Mia. I’m always yours. Forever, suga.” She had everything she always wanted. But maybe life wasn’t so perfect after all. One event threatens her happily ever after. Will Mia revert to her old ways of dealing with her pain? Or will she fight? Or will the hurt simply be too much to handle? Can she get past the pain and recapture the life she so desperately wanted?

4.5* read.
I'm so glad that these are in a box set as once I started with their story I didn't want to stop. When I read a series I always hate having to wait for the next one and I find I tend to stay away from series' until their all realized. Because I read so much I can sometimes forget about the rest of the series unless its a favourite author of mine so I was really glad to have these all in one box set. I immediately connected with the characters and was pulled into their lives and their story. Mia and Ethan gave me a unique and heartbreaking romance. A beautifully wrote book full of drama, angst, romance, love, and forgiveness all wrapped in one package with characters I fell in love with straight away. Great read.

She's been writing for a long time. Her first story came to her during one of her history classes. She wrote it in the margins of her notebook in teeny tiny letters so no one knew that she was writing a book instead of taking notes on 16th Century Europe.

Ryker Powers was the biggest prick I’d ever met.
He was also my biggest mistake.
He’d taken what he wanted then left, and I detested him for it. Not that the jerk had cared to stick around long enough to know how I felt.
Everyone thought he was a perfect gentleman with all his quiet intensity but I knew better.
I knew he had a filthy mouth. That he liked things dirty.
He may have had people fooled into thinking he was a nice guy but I knew exactly who he was.
He was a bad boy who’d ask for a light from the devil himself.
And I wanted to see him burn.
Until I realized—to my utter horror—that what I really wanted was him.
Who was going to get burned now?

USA Today Best Selling author Harper Bentley writes about hot alpha males who love hard. She's taught high school English for 23 years, and although she's managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.
After traveling the nation in her younger years as a military brat, having lived in Alaska, Washington State and California, she now resides in Oklahoma with her teenage daughter, two dogs and one cat, happily writing stories that she hopes her readers will enjoy.

Meet River & Marley in this emotionally twisted - unconventional stand alone by Lisa DeJong

Break Even is NOW AVAILABLE!
break even cover.jpg

My story isn’t a love story … not the typical kind anyway.
As a lawyer, I’m used to discovery, but I never saw this one coming.

Every day, River gives me ten reasons to stay away, and then eleven reasons why I can't. Our relationship was to remain strictly business, or at least I tried.

Four years of marriage, and everything with Cole has changed. I never knew two people who lived together could be so distant. But I’m not ready to give up on him.

One man wants to break me.
The other is just trying to get even.

Both are lying to me.

***This is a standalone contemporary romance (though a little unconventional and twisted!)

4.5* read.
This is actually a completely different read to what I'd normally go for but I love this author so I knew I had to read it even though it has a love triangle in it and I tend to stay away from books like that. I'm so glad I give it s go though as I really enjoyed it and as a reader I could relate and sympathise with the situations faced in this book. I don't want to go into to much detail as it will spoil the story but there is a lot of twists and turns and ups and downs that will keep you gripped throughout. 


“What?” he asks, leaning his elbows on the table.
      “This,” I say, gesturing between us, “would never last more than one day.”
The ultra-cocky grin he had on his face the first day I met him in my office is back. “You might think that, but there’s something I know that you haven’t figured out yet.”
      “And what’s that?”
He closes some of the space between us. “Every inch of your perfect little body is aching to know what my hands would feel like. Every. Fucking. Inch. You hold a shield up, thinking it will keep me away, but there’s nothing I don’t see.”
      My mouth hangs open. He’s so wrong, but he’s so right. River is unlike anyone I’ve ever met. He’s untouchable—unobtainable—and I’m married. The holes in my marriage have led me to think about things—him—in a way I normally wouldn’t. When Cole touches me, he just doesn’t reach deep enough. It’s left a void. I hate to admit it, but that’s just the way things are.
      Before I can come up with a rebuttal, the waitress brings us our plates and sets them in front of us. Staring down, I pretend my salad is the most interesting thing I’ve ever seen. The strawberries and blueberries make it pretty.
      “Did I strike a nerve?” he asks, sliding the plate of fries so they’re within my view.
      “You’re on every single one of them.”
      He laughs sadistically. “But I’m right.”
      “You’re wrong. I wouldn’t let you near me even if I were single.” I pick up a piping hot fry and carefully bite into it.
      “If you were single, I guarantee I’d have you in my condo naked right now.”

Myles (Carter Brother series #3) by Lisa Helen Gray

I’m Kayla Martin...

I was once sweet and innocent, saw the 

world bright with colour, but now all I see 

is black and white. He not only ripped my 

innocence away from me, tortured me and 

made my life a living hell, but he stole the 

very soul that made me who I am.

I’m a shell of the girl I once knew.

But it’s all about to change.

I’m ready to face my fear. And that’s going right back to the very 

place all this started. Grayson High. I’ve had to stay back a year to

 re-take my exams, back to the halls where students whispered, 

bullied, and taunted me.

It’s been four years and I’m still trying to perfect the art of faking.

It’s easy most of the time. My parents never really cared about me;

they just saw the fake smile and assumed everything was fabulous, 

until he waltzes back into my life.

Myles freaking Carter. My childhood crush. And he sees straight 

past my fake smiles to the broken girl inside. But what happens 

when he finds out about the real me...the broken, scared, weak girl?

My biggest fear is on the verge of becoming discovered because he

becomes my rock. I'm petrified that he'll find out what I've been 

hiding from everyone. Will he be able to look me in the eye once 

he finds out my secret?

5* read.
First ill start by saying I LOVE this series and I LOVE this author so I was really lucky to get a arc for this one. I would actually give this more then the 5 stars if I could. I actually wasn't sure if id like Myles as much as the other brothers as he's always come across as more quiet and too good for my bad boy side that I love. I was so wrong and after this book he may actually be my favourite. The way this a author wrote such a  beautiful story of Myles and Kayla around such a hard topic blew me mind. It was heartbreaking in places yet so sweet and I've been rooting for these two since they first met in earlier books. the way Myles was with Kayla because of everything she'd been through was so sweet and beautiful I was ugly crying a good few times throughout.
There was a few spelling mistakes but i haven't marked down for this as I know how much of a game this author had on with having to change editors and getting it released on time, and the mistakes don't spoil this story at all so it didn't bother me.
As for the next book I can't wait, especially when its Max's turn, boy I can not wait to read this dirty talking bad boys story. Well done Lisa on another amazing book, cant wait for the next.


Southern Pleasure by Kaylee Ryan

Title: Southern Pleasure
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult Romance
 Release Date: December 22, 2015


They tell you that a parent’s love is all consuming. I never put much thought into it. Not until the minute I heard her take her first breath. That little girl is my world. I’d do anything to protect her.

My ex signed over her rights and her family vowed that my daughter didn’t exist. Now that she’s gone, they want my little girl. They’re trying to say I can’t give her what she needs.

I’ve known Evan all my life. Our families farms run parallel with each other. He and my brother Aaron have been best friends for as long as I can remember.

What they’re trying to do is wrong. He needs my help, someone he can trust and I’m more than happy to do it. I volunteered without hesitation.

I should have thought about what it would be like to have our lives intertwined. I should have thought about what would happen when our time together ended and how my heart would feel when I had to walk away.

I received a ARC in exchange for a honest review.
4.5* read.
I have read past books from this author and loved them so I was looking forward to this one. This was a bit different to her normal books with its more serious tone and its real emotional story that took you on a journey and kept you gripped throughout. Evan and Kinley were so sweet and the relationship they had and how it developed certainly pulled on my heartstrings. Evan is her brothers best friend and when Evans life is upturned Kinley is there for him and their relationship grows from the just friendship. I loved them together and I loved how Evan was and how he dealt with everything that happened.
Great read I look forward to future books from this author.
