Iris Rydell has her dream job working at Rydell Rides. Her life and future are exactly as she wants them. She’s tough, respected by her co-workers, accepted by her family, and adores being a mechanic. There’s nothing she’s searching for.

Until Quinn Larkin, billionaire and city-transplant, shows up in River’s End with his broken-down car that Iris starts to fix. Quinn is immediately intrigued by Iris. She grabs his attention when nothing and no one else does.

Bored out of his mind by his job, his friends, his staff and his money… she’s the first person that’s held his attention for more than a conversation. It’s going to be a quick, fun weekend. They both get this. They both count on that. The problem is… no one’s ever not wanted Quinn before. And for the first time ever… he wants someone and something for far more than a weekend. He has to convince Iris that she wants them to be an “us.” And there is no greater challenge in Quinn’s life than that.

And for a while he succeeds.

But then one day something changes with Iris. She has a secret she’s hiding. A secret no one will ever be ready for.

A secret that will change everything, for everyone… forever.

I fell in love with Ireena Monroe, and then she fell in love with my identical twin brother. It ripped us apart, and we haven’t spoken since.
My childhood friend, Claudia Tamasy, is the only one who fully understands what’s happened to me, and unfortunately, she also is the only one to witness my reaction to it all. Her dad opens a branch of his business near Silver Springs and we end up working there together. Friends, co-workers… lovers? No, we can’t be. It’s too odd and weird and it would ruin the honesty we share in every other way. The last thing that will ever distract me is a relationship. Fool me once… well, I watched the girl I loved marry my brother. No, hell no, will I ever be fooled again.
Until my brother calls me with devastating news about Ireena and Claudia tries to make me see I have to go help him. But how can I forgive him? And what can I do as Claudia is the only one who can help me get through this?
But by then… what if I’ve already ruined everything?

#Review “Wyatt (The Son Series #2)” by Leanne Davis

Title: Wesley (The Son Series #2)
Author: Leanne Davis
Genre: Sports romance

Release Date: May 15, 2019
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

~~~

4/5 Stars!

I didn’t start to like Wyatt Kincaid until near the end of book one of Wesley’s story.

He fares much better with me in book two.

Learning the trauma he’s lives with since his sophomore year of college explains his uncharacteristic behavior.

Despite his birth mother being murdered when he was a toddler, Wyatt still grew up with a loving father and stepmother, extended family and friends in a comfortable, privileged life.

Jacey Walker has lived the true hard-knocks life complete with foster care and a drug-addicted, alcoholic mother who sees her as a tool to feed her addictions instead of a daughter to be loved and cared for.

Booted from foster care after becoming an adult, Jacey moves in with the only person to offer her shelter. When the situation becomes abusive, she searches out the only friend she has, Wesley Abbott, who’s already walked away from the chaotic and destructive foster care lifestyle.

Wesley’s staying with the Kincaids and this is when Jacey and Wyatt meet.

After successfully dealing with Wesley’s issues, for the time being, Wyatt and Jacey develop a friendship. He encourages her to want more and never settle; similar words to what she heard in counseling.

A relationship grows between the two as Wyatt continues to encourage Jacey to stretch her wings,  read good books, and enroll in college.

While they both must conquer past fears before they can move on, for me, it’s Jacey who helps herself and Wyatt. She may not have the academics, but she has more common sense and wisdom than a roomful of people. Once she realizes her own power, there’s no stopping her.

Wyatt is another strong offering from this author as book 2 in the Son Series, with well-developed characters willing to put the happiness of others first even if it means risking their hearts.

Enjoy!

Something happened last year that changes how I approach my life. I told no one about it. It’s affected all of my relationships and ended the one with the girl I thought I’d be with forever. I’m a hero at college and one of the top quarterbacks at the university level, and I have the popularity to show for it. Still, none of it feels deserved after what I failed to do last year. I’m riddled by guilt and confusion over what happened, but worse is my reaction to it.

Jacey Walker has her own tales of horror that come to light after she finds refuge with my parents in Silver Springs. She’s caught my eye and interest. She has an awakening curiosity about a new and brighter future than she’s ever imagined, which has me reevaluating and appreciating my own until I realize who has caught her attention. Now I have to face my own history or risk Jacey paying the consequences.

#Review “Wesley (The Son Series Book 1)” by Leanne Davis

Release Date: March 15th
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

5/5 Stars!

Sometimes being wrong is such a good thing!

I volunteered to read an ARC of Wesley several weeks ago in conjunction with a blog tour. Then I had a meltdown I’d committed myself to reading a whiney, juvenile, coming of age story.

THE HORROR!

But, I cleared an afternoon and sat down with this read… and didn’t stop reading until I finished it!

It’s not just a solid, captivating read, but it’s intelligent, insightful, snarky… and heartbreaking.

Wesley No-Last-Name considers himself a traveler—living life on his own terms on the road, doing odd jobs here and there to get by. He’s actually a foster kid who’s found life off the grid freer and safer than being continuously victimized by the system meant to protect him.

Wesley isn’t a druggie criminal-type, but to help a friend in need, he crosses a line and subsequently gets caught. Expecting to be arrested and jailed—something the claustrophobic Wesley dreads—he receives a different punishment to atone for his misstep… he becomes part of a family.

Wesley’s POV was difficult to read. He’s never known true kindness and concern, or even minimal consideration. The concept of family is nonexistent to him and he believes those who believe in it are clueless how the real world works. Though he is treated well, Wesley is always waiting for the other shoe to drop and for the humiliation, neglect, and cruelty to arrive.

But that will not happen with Tara Kincaid around.

The café-owner, seeing a lot of her past in Wesley, knows there’s more to him than what he allows others to see and convinces her fish and game enforcement officer hubby to take a chance on the young man who only shares his first name… nothing else.

College-age son, Wyatt, is not so accepting or welcoming and shows it every chance he gets. (For some reason, this guy reminded me of good old Dawson Leery from Dawson’s Creek, with his why is the world conspiring to ruin my perfect existence-attitude.)

Much more accepting is Wyatt’s girlfriend, Dani. She comes to realize Wesley is hiding from… and lying to… himself. She also wonders why she’s more preoccupied with thoughts of him instead of Wyatt.

It’s obvious Tara knows—or hopes—Wesley’s short time with her family will give him pause to change his traveler ways, but I believe none of them were prepared for the changes in themselves.

Besides foster care, Wesley deals with child abuse, sexual molestation, domestic violence, and race… all without being heavy-handed, preachy or beating the reader up. Wesley’s mature content is intended for an adult audience. It’s also a diverse read that doesn’t put its diversity on parade. It’s simply about people living with and relating to each other and proving family is determined by more than blood.

I have no problem admitting I was wrong in prejudging Wesley and recommend it to all readers interested in a compelling story full of complex characters. I hit the preorder button before I finished Wesley’s story… and I preordered book two—Wyatt.

Don’t fall behind, download this one today!

Enjoy!

~Wesley~

Yeah, I don’t trust them.
Who are they? The family who takes me in after they catch me making a rare mistake. They offer me a deal that allows me to make amends while staying with them and working. I’ve never had a permanent home and I’d long since run away from the foster care system after my last “home” had someone using my back for a cigarette tray. My means of supporting myself? Whatever necessary. That includes anything and everything I needed to do to survive. That’s all my life has been about anyway: survival. And you know what? I’ve done just that. Survived. And thrived while doing so.

Then this strange family decides to rescue me. Though not for a moment do I need rescuing. I’ve made my life something interesting and important while remaining independent. I’m neither homeless, nor a criminal. I’ll do my penance in this small town of Silver Springs, but nothing will make me lose sight of the life waiting for me on the road.

I don’t trust their motives for a second and I’m ready at any moment for it to go wrong. Nothing is going to make me believe in them. Even as I meet Dani Dawson, who is a waitress in the café where I work and is dating the son of the family I’m staying with. She tries to show me a softer side to life. Still, I know that nothing lasts: not food, shelter, parents, friends, brothers, families, and certainly not love. Especially if you’re relying on others for it. I rely on no one but myself. Always have and always will. No matter what. So, I’m ready for it all to go to crap, but until then? Joke’s on all of them and I’ll take advantage of it until the very last moment.

Title: River’s Rescue (River’s End Series, #9)
Author: Leanne Davis
Genre: Western Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 12,2018
Cover Designer: Steven Novak (novakillustration@gmail.com)
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

She pulled him out of darkness and isolation… all of which, had nothing to do with the fact that he was deaf. But once out, what if that is the very thing that will rip him from her?
Isolated for years, without a family, and a guardian who mocked how he sounded, Finn Alexander learned how to interact in a hearing world… while completely shunning the Deaf one. Finn solved his differences by hiding in a barn where he worked with animals all day, and very few people.
Until Brianna Starr.
There soon becomes Finn’s life before Brianna and after Brianna. She forces him out of the barn, out of the silence and quiet of his head… and into the world as she sees, hears and experiences it. She is known for being likeable and popular, the very antithesis of him, and yet, with Finn she can’t quite get her footing. Awkward, insulting, and accidentally off-putting towards him, she at least tries to communicate fully with him.
And honestly? No one has ever reacted to him quite like Brianna.
Moreover, it works, until the very things she is pushing him towards fills up his life and could so easily rip him away from her. Because as life long ago taught him, some barriers are permanent. Uncrossable. Unbreakable.
No matter how hard one tries.
