Have you ever become so enthralled with a series and a group of characters, that you just feel like you know them and they’re your best friends and you just want to keep them safe from harm? Well that’s me with the characters in this series. While they are teenagers and I could be old enough to be their mother if I had them young enough, I just want to tuck them into my arms and hide them from all the crap they have to deal with. Like seriously.
When Cassie told me she was writing a reverse harem type series but with her own twist and spin on things, I was like okay. I don’t read a lot of RH books anyway but I knew that what she would write, would be beyond epic. And dudes, can we talk about mind being blown? I’m always in awe of Cassie’s writing. She grows with each book and this series, the way she paints the images in your head with her words, is something I strive for as an author myself. The details, although simple but smart and unique, leave you being able to see the scene likes you’re watching it play out on screen in front of you. I’m simply in awe right now.
I knew that by the time I was done book one that Bridger would be my favourite and I couldn’t wait for his story. So when Cassie said that his book was number three, I was beyond excited to read it and she didn’t disappoint.
You do have to read these books in order to get the full feel of the story as there are so many layers to each character that get slowly peeled away like layers of an onion as we get deeper and deeper into the story. I can’t wait for this series to be done and to read these books back to back.
While we learn more about each character in this book, we are of course left with more questions but I trust Cassie to give us all of the answers when her and her characters are ready. There are so many twists and turns and I can’t wait for the next book!
Oh and that certain scene with the 5 of them…wow. Just wow. I won’t go into details but trust me, you all need to read this series. This is hands down my favourite series of Cassie’s and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.
When Alexis McCord’s abusive boyfriend is arrested, she seizes the opportunity to escape with her young son. Now she and 5-year-old Chance are building a life in the tiny, remote beach town of Sandy Reach, Washington. Lexi is even acting on her dream of becoming a baker with her own shop—if only Hugh never finds her.
For Fletcher Lambert, distraught after the death of his wife and baby daughter, Sandy Reach is a handy place to escape his memories, away from his law office and his large, well-intentioned but intrusive family, who are watching and waiting for him to move on. He’s not sure that will ever happen.
Then Fletcher meets Chance. When he learned that the waitress serving him at Omar’s pub is the boy’s mother, sparks fly in in spite of his intentions never to get close to a woman again. Lexi feels them, too, but her mistrust of men forces her to ignore Chance when he declares that Fletcher would make the perfect dad. After all, who listens to a five-year-old in the midst of all this grown-up angst?
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
A New series about the Lambert family. A family that has it all, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have issues of their own.
Lexi McCord is trying to raise her young son right and that means getting away from his abusive and theft of a father. They run while he is in prison after he was arrested for robbing a jewelry store. Their car breaks down outside of Sandy Reach, so that where she tries to change their life around. It’s taken two years, but life is finally looking up for them.
It’s been a year since the death of his wife and baby daughter and Fletcher Lambert is still not over it. He has a hard time being around his niece and nephew, almost has a panic attack when he is called to go to the ER for his little brother, and is losing clients at his office where he practices law.
His law partner has put his foot down and told him he needs to get away and finally deal with it and maybe get some closure so he decides to go to Sandy Reach for some winter fishing and so he doesn’t have to be around his family for the holidays he decides to go for a couple of months.
Fletcher meets a child alone of the beach the first day he is there. He can’t believe that a 5 year old would be allowed to be alone on the beach, let alone be allowed on the beach in the winter without the proper clothing, he learns shortly that he got away from his babysitter. It isn’t until he starts talking to the child that he realizes that he recognizes the child as the one that almost ran out in front of his car when he drove into town and that his mom his the waitress at the pub he just left. The woman that has him thinking thought that were nothing about his wife.
Lexi tries hard to stay way from Fletcher after he tries to pay for fixing her son’s coat he found on the beach after that faithful day, but she can’t. There is something in him that calls to her.
What happens next is a story of a man falling in love again, a woman learning that all men aren’t bad and it’s ok to have feeling for one, and a child that knows what he wants and how to protect his mom.
Vale does a wonderful job showing the emotional storm of a man dealing with the loss of his whole world. She also does a great job showing how hard it is to be a single parent and how hard it is to trust again after leaving a abusive relationship.
When two people learn to love again it’s wonderful and I can’t wait to see more of the Lambert family.
My mother said I wrote my first book when I was five–after I carefully copied the words in one of my favorite stories. A favorite children’s book I still have is a first edition, signed by the author, of MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE, perhaps one reason I included reference to it in my indie-novel, PACKAGE DEAL.
Counting my current work as a novelist, I think I’ve experienced at least five different careers, the first four providing lots of grist for the mill of what my characters do or would like to do. One example? Olivia Brown in GRANDDAD’S HOUSE is a realtor. I was one, too! And realtors show up again in CHOICES and in a new book not yet ready for publication.
I hope you enjoy my stories. I love to hear from readers.
