My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Heart Tugging Stars!!
Reviewed by Franci Neill
I started this book and thought, oh what a beautiful love story this is going to be…although with the title I should have been forewarned! And then BOOM I get into the heart of the book, and my heart is being ripped into tiny little pieces.
Ty and Elin have been in love forever and they truly are soul mates. But when an event in their lives changes everything about who they are as a couple, things are said that just can’t be taken back and tears them and their marriage apart. When Ty decides he wants Elin back, it doesn’t go as smoothly as he’d like because her heart was broken almost as much as mine was while reading it.
My emotions were all over the place with this book. Ms. Locke has a way of writing that makes me feel like I’m the one in the story. They’re written with such grace and elegance while at the same time there’s no lack of heat between our H/h. Just when you think everything is going to be right with their world, BOOM!!!! I so did not expect that and talk about bawling my eyes out!!!
I’m still recovering from reading this one and I have a feeling it’s going to be a long recovery. Thank you Ms. Locke for giving us Ty and Elin’s story.

iBooks | Amazon Print | Audible | B&N | IndieBound | BAM!She’s even lovelier than I remembered, than I dreamed. Delicate midnight tendrils frame a face that belongs in a museum—with stunning dark sapphire eyes that should be commemorated in vibrant oils and soft watercolors. If Helen launched a thousand ships, this girl could raise a thousand hard-ons. She’s prettily made, the top of her head coming only to my chin, but fantastically curvy. Great full tits that strain the buttons of a wrinkled white blouse, shapely hips in a black skirt tapering to a tiny waist I could wrap my hands around and toned legs encased in sheer black tights finish off the whole package very nicely. An unfamiliar anxiousness fizzes like soda in my gut. “The door was open,” I explain. “It’s broken.” Logan flicks at the lock. Security is his life, so a broken lock would annoy him like a puzzle with the final piece missing. “What do you want?” She has no idea who I am. It’s in the defensive way she holds herself and the accusatory note in her voice. Some women try to pretend they don’t recognize me, but I can always tell. Her ignorance is rather…thrilling. There are no expectations, no hidden agendas, no reasons to pretend—what she sees is what she gets. And all she sees is me. My throat is suddenly a barren wasteland. I swallow, but it’s difficult. “Well, he’s desperate for some pie.” I hook my thumb at Simon. “And I…wanted to apologize for the other evening. I don’t normally act that way. I was on a bit of bender…” “In my experience, people don’t do things when they’re drunk that they wouldn’t do normally.” “No, you’re right. I would’ve thought all those things, but I never would’ve said them out loud.” I move closer, slowly. “And if I’d been sober…my opening bid would’ve been much higher.” “She crosses her arms. “Are you trying to be cute?” “No. I don’t have to try…it just sort of happens.” Emma Chase is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the hot and hilarious Tangled series and The Legal Briefs series. Emma lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children and two naughty (but really cute) dogs. She has a long-standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.

Sunshine and Rain by M. MabieStandalone small-town romance, City Limits #2 Release Date: October 28
Welcome to Wynne, population 3402.
No rockstars. No major politicians. No media moguls.
Things don’t change quickly in a small town, except when they do. It’s been pouring rain all summer long, and the disc jockey and local farmer are all of the sudden attached at the hip. It’s not only the rising river getting deeper and deeper.
This is your basic water tower painting, tractor driving, tailgate cooler packing kind a guy chases the single, blonde, radio vixen with mosquito bite rage from his youth type of romance. Or is it the other way around?
Low on drama. High on Love.
Grab an umbrella because it’s a long wet summer.
