synopsis

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?

Synopsis4

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?

Review

Reviewed by Shera 5 of 5 Stars!

Ryleigh Andrews blew me away with Bring Me You.  Book one in the Never Over You Series.  I was hooked from the first page.  This book has a little of everything.  Sex, Drugs, Music, drama and a few extremely HOT men.

Mia is a lead singer of her band The Last Star.  Her best friend Luke, which actually happens to be “Friends with Benefits” up until recently has a great friendship with Mia.    Luke wanting Mia to be truly happy, sets her up with his friend Ethan.  Who is the Pro Quaterback of the Flash, the best player in the UFL.  He is incredibly charming and oh so sexy.   Mia feels an instant connection with Ethan and decides to let go and give herself to him.  Well, most of herself.  She’s hiding something from her past and fights to keep it locked away from everyone.

“Stop doubting how beautiful  I find you.  I want you with a need I’ve never experienced before, he said, gazing into her eyes and she couldn’t mistake the hunger she saw in his

As Mia and Ethan’s relationship evolves, things start to get in the way.  She gets a deal she can’t turn down and which requires going on tours and being away for long periods of time.  Her demanding schedule, combined with Ethan’s starts to put a strain on the relationship.   Mia is hit the hardest; the separation from Ethan is causing her to fall.  Demons from her past come back to the surface and she starts to slip away.  She doesn’t want to feel, doesn’t want to hurt from not having Ethan by her side.  What extreme will she go to and where will that leave her?

Things weren’t perfect in their relationship by a long shot; a lot of twists and turns happen throughout the story but in the end Ethan knows he wants Mia, only Mia.  But is it too late?  Have too many things changed?   Will she close herself off completely and fall deeper into the darkness?

I laughed, I screamed, I cried.   I was verbally abusing my kindle at some points lashing out at both Mia and Ethan for their choices.  I love the story line, its smart, sexy and an easy read.  You will be taken through a gamut of emotions and won’t be disappointed with this book.   I cannot wait for Still Into You (Book 2) to be released.  I am waiting on pins and needles to know what happens with Ethan and Mia!   ~  Shera – Book Lovers Obsession

Her first book, Bring Me You, was released December 2014. Her second book, Still Into You, will be released Spring 2015.

During the day, Ryleigh is an analyst, but even then, she’s writing, sneakily crafting scenes on post-it notes. She’s been told she’s a bit of a geek…some say nerd. She’ll agree to it all. She loves music. It’s been a force in her life for as long as she can remember. Her love of Star Wars and superheroes has probably been going on just as long…see, this is where the geek/nerd thing comes into play. But, most of all, Ryleigh loves the written word. 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. She currently lives in Chicago, Illinois, with her husband and son, along with her Siberian Husky, Mick Jagger, and her cat, Winston Churchill.

Review

Well here we are… Filthy Beautiful Forever is the fourth book of the Filthy Beautiful Lies series with the ever so sexy Drake brothers!   Starring the ever smoldering sexy Collins Drake, who is the oldest brother and for a guy who never actually really lived, he surely made up for it in this story!

Meet Collins Drake.   He is just as successful as his brothers, perfect life, perfect job and the perfect girlfriend.  Wait, stop the press, scratch that!  There is nothing about plastic Tatianna that is perfect.  She is a Super model and I call her super shallow selfish b**ch.   Poor Collins knows something is missing from his almost perfect life, can he find it?  Will he allow himself to find it?

Then you have Mia.  Sweet lovable Mia was all of Collin’s firsts.  As the saying goes, there really is nothing better than your first love.  When things get turned upside down in Mia’s life, she makes a bold move and deposits herself right on Collins doorstep.  Can she deposit herself back into his heart?  Perhaps maybe she has always been there and someone is just in serious denial?  Can a promise made when your ten years old between two friends stand the test of time?

“You’ve gotta stop thinking with your head so much.” Placing her palm over my heart, she leans close. “Everything you need to know is right here.”

Ok, double *swoon*.  I think I just melted….

I seriously FLOVED this entire series.   Colton stole my heart and ran away with it.  Pace grabbed it from Colton and took off like a bat out of hell, and Collins decided it was unfair to keep it all to himself and I was shared.  Yep, totally OK with that concept!  Colton & Sophie and Pace & Kylie made appearances in this book and I loved the way Kendall kept them present throughout this entire series.  You will laugh, you will cry and you will fall in love with the Drake Brothers, no doubt about it.   I had a huge pouty face boo boo lip going on knowing this was the end of the series, but what a fantastic way to end it.  Kendall,  thank you for giving us the Drake Boys and making us feel sooo very  Filthy, yet Beautiful at the same time!   5 Stars ~ Shera

Review

Reviewed by Shera 4 of 5 Stars

Conflicted is the first book in the Secrets and Lies Series.  Mia Ryan didn’t have the glorious family life growing up and suffered the worst betrayal from someone she trusted.  Her ex ripped her world apart, destroyed her in every sense.   She has severe trust issues because of the hurt she suffered and keeps a close guard on her heart.   She fortunately has fantastic roommates who are ultimately her family.

Mia is determined to pick her life back up and a golden opportunity comes her way.  But is finish line worth the risk she will take for this job?   She dives in determined but cautiously and even a little guilty knowing what she has to do.  Putting herself in an unknown situation that could potentionally turn dangerous and it seems like everyone is hiding something, secrets are flying all around.

Insert Ethan Fitzgerald.   One of those guys that you just know youre in deep the minute you lay eyes on him.  Hot, sexy and demanding.  He turns her on, torments her at the same time without even trying.   He has his sights set on Mia, even though she knows she needs to avoid getting involved with him simply for the reason of why she is there working in the first place and in his world.  Will Ethan find out the real reason shes there and what will happen when he does?

“It took everything in my power to walk past him, acting like what he said meant nothing whatsoever to me, when on the inside, I was a bloody mess. He wasn’t going to back down. I wasn’t sure if it turned me on or tormented me”

This book is a romance and so much more.  Mainly told from Mia’s point of view, I would like to hear what Ethan is thinking this whole time.   The fire between Ethan and Mia, is wow.  They have such an attraction and explosive chemistry.   The connection she has with her roommates, just makes me want to have roommates like them.  Each has a completely different personality which brings out different parts of Mia.    This book will definitely have you saying WTF and keep you on your toes, not mention melting your panties off at some point!   I can’t wait to see what else is in store and also see what happens with everyone else in the story.    4 out of 5 stars!

About WHEN YOU’RE READY:

Years after suffering the tragic loss of her husband, Ethan, which left her alone to raise their young daughter, Clare Murray still holds the last letter he wrote with the words “When You’re Ready” written in his familiar messy handwriting, unable to break its weathered seal. Ready for what? He was her entire world, and Clare had accepted a life without him, without love. Until years later, fate brings her to an emergency room, and face to face with a stormy-eyed doctor intent on changing her mind.

Son of a billionaire, Logan Matthews has spent his life trying to make his absentee father proud. Without a family to depend on, all he’s ever wanted is a place to call home. After a failed marriage, Logan believes he’s unworthy of love…until he meets a woman who awakens his spirit and transforms his entire life in an instant.

But how far are Clare and Logan willing to go for love? Can his love mend the pieces of her grieving heart?

When their love is tested, is Clare ready to put her whole heart on the line again? Can Logan learn the true meaning of love, even if it means sacrificing his own happiness? When a second chance at love is given, Clare and Logan learn you are never truly ready until you’re ready to risk it all.

About NEVER BEEN READY:

Leah Morgan was done with men. After barely surviving a horrendous childhood, and a boyfriend who bailed when things got rough, Leah had given up on love. Then she met him, Hollywood’s new golden boy who suddenly had eyes only for her. She tried to convince herself that one night couldn’t hurt, but after six months, the memories of his mesmerizing gaze and searing touch still invaded her every thought.

Declan James had just one rule when it came to women. Keep it simple, and never linger. That all changed the moment he met Leah. Even across a crowded bar, he could tell she was different. Sweet, with just the right amount of sass, she made him break his golden rule and now he couldn’t walk away.

When casual becomes anything but, and emotions run deep, will Leah and Declan fight their fears, or let old insecurities tear them apart? When Declan’s past comes roaring back in a way neither of them could have expected, will they stand united or be torn apart by the challenges that lie ahead?

It was only supposed to be one night, but only forever will do.

About READY FOR YOU:

A second chance at first love.

Eight years ago, Garrett Finnegan’s world shattered the day Mia vanished from his life. He’s been struggling to pick up the pieces ever since. Haunted by memories and ghosts of the past, he chooses a solitary existence rather than risk his heart again.

Mia Emerson has made one wrong decision after another but none worse than walking away from the boy who stole her heart so long ago. When her new life is turned upside down, she finds herself returning to her roots and the hometown she left behind. Maybe now she can find a way to heal from the devastating mistakes of her past.

When a chance encounter brings these former lovers together, passion reignites in a way neither is prepared for. Can Garrett move beyond his anger and find a way to forgive? Will Mia’s insecurities and fears cause her to once again flee the life she’s destined to live?

Garrett and Mia will soon discover that they must journey into the past to find their way home.

The third novel in the Ready series. Each novel can be read as a standalone.
