Shane Nelson and Rachel Waters have been in love their whole lives. They are meant to be together and the whole town knows it. When Shane very publicly breaks up with Rachel she’s left feeling completely lost and leaves town. She was always going to leave, but she thought Shane would be by her side.

Fast forward six years and Rachel is back in their small town of North Ridge, B.C. to deal with some family stuff. While she knew she would have to see Shane, she didn’t know just how much she would have to see him and be around him, or how much she would want to.

When Rachel comes back to town we learn their history and what lead to the breakup. Shane did what he had to do to protect those that he loves.

I loved Wild Card. I was rooting hard for them to get their second chance. Heartbreakingly sweet love story with the HEA Shane and Rachel deserve.

Review:

When Jackson Cane left for college, he promised Ember Rose Warren he would be back for her. 10 years later Ember is a single parent who can’t open herself to love after experiencing the biggest betrayal of her life. She has picked up the pieces without him. He thought she gave up on him after she promised to wait for him, and tried to move on without her.

Jackson comes back to his small, resort hometown of Oceanside to try to figure out what to do with his life. He never thought he would see Ember again, but once he does all of the old feelings come rushing back, along with all of the feelings he had tried to suppress for those long, lonely years. He’s determined to get her back.

As truths are revealed, we root for hard for these two get their shot at a second chance and for those who tried to keep them apart and try to hurt them to get what they deserve. I could not put this book down. Tia Louise gives us the story of Jackson, Ember (and Coco too), without getting us lost in the back story. I loved her writing style. Definitely recommend reading When We Touch if you haven’t done so already.

Mickey Jacobs and Alexandra Stotts have known each other since they were kids. Outwardly, living childhoods full of joy and laughter but privately both experiencing their own kinds of pain and disappointment. 

Alex had always been taught what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. The outside world saw her life as idyllic and picture perfect. But of course, things are never what they seem.
After watching his philandering father tear his family apart and break his mother’s heart time and time again, Mick vowed to never cause another person that kind of pain. Keep it simple. No relationships. 
But then there was the sweet, exotically beautiful Alex. There was always Alex. With her…things were never simple. She was forbidden fruit. His sister’s friend. Off limits.
Alex was head-over-heels for Mick the moment her twelve-year old eyes landed on him. She knew at this young age that they could never be. Even if he wasn’t her best friend’s brother, he was still Mickey freaking Jacobs. Now, all grown up, Mick is gorgeous, the life of the party and an eternal bachelor. He’ll never be able to give Alex what she needs, and she’s not sure she could risk the pain that giving Mickey Jacobs her heart would surely inflict.
Can Mick and Alex find a way to heal themselves by loving each other?
Can he give her MORE?

I have been waiting for some time for another book, like the Until Series that gives us that sassy sweet heroine, and that strong sexy alpha male. Aurora has done it again with this one. She had me hook, line, and sinker. I couldn’t put this book down, I had to keep going until I finished the book. If you are a fan of Aurora’s books or have never read her books you can not go wrong with any of them. She draws you in, gives you the feels, and leaves you craving more!

This first book is a little over 500 pages and I can honestly say I read through it so fast that I didn’t realize it was that long. I kept wanting more from the story to see where everyone ended up. But don’t be discouraged book 2, and book 3 are ready to read to help you with that fix you need.  I so loved Emily and Jonathan and it felt like I reallly knew them and that I was living the story right along with them. The great part about this book is it takes place in the pnw. Who doesn’t love that, so many friendly places, and so many new places ready to be explored.

This is definitely a must read and right now it is free on Amazon. Happy reading!!!!
