Landing the Lawman (Hills of Texas #5) by Kadie Scott – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

Landing the Lawman (Hills of Texas, #5)Landing the Lawman by Kadie Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book 5 of this series and is best to be read in order to get to know the family better.
This is Carter’s story, the only girl in her family and how she now has her dream job after leaving a relationship and her job.
She works closely with Logan and after a burned relationship he is far from wanting a commitment ever again.

I really loved these two, they balanced each other well. And loved seeing the family again even if the reason they’re all close again wasn’t a good one. I loved watching the changes and relationship bloom here and am so sad this series is now at its end. Ive enjoyed them all.

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2)Taming Zane by Lisa Lanay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a great read. The chemistry between Shannon and Zane was instant and couldn’t wait to see where it went and how it unfolded.
Shannon was strong and I loved her little quirks, i mean of course we women talk to ourselves we need expert advice after all!
Zane is a confirmed bachelor and we don’t learn the exact reasons until almost the end. He feels Shannon is different and tries to distance himself from her in the emotional way as to not develop feelings.

I really liked these two, and I yelled at my kindle twice as they made stupid decisions or comments and I wanted to hit their heads together.

I hope we get more books as I want the brothers stories as they’re going to be good I know!

Broken by Love (The Full Circle Series) by MJ Masucci – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

Broken by Love by MJ Masucci
4 stars

I must say, I went into this with high hopes based off the synopsis and I feel a bit let down. I wanted a bit more depth with the characters I just couldn’t connect in a way I usually can, even in a small way.
I did enjoy reading and getting to know these characters, Lexi gets a new job only to have her ex be her new boss. When feelings start to resurface between these two, there’s a battle within for Lexi.
I will be going back and reading this again as I think the 2 books i read before this were deep deep romantic and sweet this just threw my reading brain off kilter.
I will be reading more from this author in the future as I did like the story overall.

Ink’s Devil (Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #5) by Manda Mellett – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

Ink’s Devil (Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #5) by Manda Mellett
5 ++++++++ (there’s not enough to justify this book)

Ok, seriously can this author stop making me love another biker every time I read a new book? I’ve got enough biker book boyfriends to last me a lifetime now but I will still greedily take more!
Ink, he’s intrigued me from the start of this series and I was so happy to get this book. And he didn’t disappoint one bit. Typical biker, ex marine, single for life, one and done. We’ve read about it in every book and every book they fall harder and harder. This had such an amazing story and something different than ever before. (For real how does she do This every single time)
Bethany, or Beth, is now one of my favorite female characters in these books, she’s not afraid to take the fall for her mistakes no matter the consequences, as like the other females who need to be strong to be with a biker, but she hit me on different level and I can’t put my finger on why.
These two, oh the chemistry, the give and take and the just overall protectiveness these two had so quickly just drew me right in and I couldn’t devour this fast enough.

I am so so curious who will be next and I have a guess, but we will see if I’m right or wrong when that time comes. As for now, I will just love this book as being my favorite at this moment and probably best read of the year so far.

Game of Fear – A gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist (Fearless Series) by Gledé Browne Kabongo – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

Game of FearGame of Fear by Glede Browne Kabongo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is not in my normal age group range for characters (high school). I just feel i don’t relate or they’re acting older than they should but this had a nice balance so it held me to the story.
Abbie is destined to go far but someone is trying to blackmail her for the one wrong thing she ever did. I kind of figured it out early on but wasn’t 100% sure until closer to the end.
Will read more from this author as it seems with the sneak peak at the end the story continues on for Abbie in college and another mystery.

A Sun So Bright (Reigning Hearts Book Three) by KG Fletcher – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

A Sun So Bright (Reigning Hearts, #3)A Sun So Bright by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book 3 in this series, and while stated its a standalone, if you haven’t read the first 2 i highly recommend. Not only will this book pack a harder punch than it does, it gives some different perspective on into how and who Fiona is before this book.
I went into this book dreading reading about Fiona, she just didn’t sit well with me in the previous stories but I knew if she was getting her own book, we would learn much more into what makes her, her.
I will not be giving anything away about this story but it had it all. Laughs and chuckles, tears oh the tears, and so much love.
This book took me by surprise and I now love Fiona to death. And am so happy I found this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well that’s one way to start a book! This had me holding on tight and watching this all unfold. I felt like i was right there in the story. This author just paints such a great picture with everything she writes.
So many twists and turns, I didnt know which way this was going to go and where we would end up.
This isnt my first read by This author and I can’t recommend this series enough, read them all I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Second Chance (The Flowers in December Trilogy, book 3) by Jane Suen – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

Second Chance (Flowers in December #3)Second Chance by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have read this series in order but you can read this as a standalone, but I think its best to read all 3.
This book was sweet, and shows no matter what love can prevail.
Im not the biggest fan of back and forth from past to present but did appreciate getting to know Mary Ann. This is the perfect ending to this trilogy, and I will look for more from this author .

Set it Free (Fallen Eagles MC Book 3) by T. Birmingham – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

Set it Free (Fallen Eagles MC Book 3)Set it Free by T. Birmingham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book in this series and i highly recommend reading in order as there’s a lot of backstory and characters we learn about previously. I love a good MC book but this hits different for me. Yes they’re in or around an MC but its more about their personal lives than “club business” I’m used to.

This story hits right in the feelings and not just sadness but humor too. I cried, I laughed, I swooned and my heartbroke. Spring has been through so much in her life and she is imploding due to her secrets and doubt. Casper/Cal is there but has to make a choice for the both of them that isn’t easy.

Great series, cant wait for more.

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Lyndsey Fairley

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
5 ++++++++ stars

I just finished reading this book and I have to say first off, BRAVO! Amazing read, and very eye opening and made me more self aware of things I think or say, as i have a 6 year old daughter who is watching and listening to everything.
Now I read in here that the author would like to hear from someone on the skinny side of things and I’ll start this off with saying, my whole life (I’m 32) I have been tiny. I’ve had 3 kids and being pregnant was the only time in my life the scale ever went over 100lbs. To me, that was a hard pill to swallow seeing the number go up so much every appointment as it was not a normal thing for me to see. I knew it was normal and needed and I didn’t change anything I was doing as I wanted to do the best for the growing child in me but it took until my 2nd pregnancy to get over the shock and just guess how much I grew.
My whole life i was labeled the skinny girl, told I needed to eat more , presumed to have an eating disorder etc and with that I can put myself in others shoes as, yes skinny people get bullied too. Not to the extremes I’ve read or heard about for those larger than me, but its all coming from the same malicious place.
This book has kicked me into wanting to journal with my 6 year old as she, unlike me, puts on weight at a speed I’m not used to personally or compared to her older & younger brothers and that’s ok because its her body as we are all different.. She’s beautiful, bright and doesn’t know or care how she looks and that’s my goal to keep with her into loving herself as we’ve never said a negative thing to her, as I remember what it feels like to hear things .
For years, I cried as I didn’t feel like a girl because I have little to no chest. I can go without a bra and no one would notice and I hated that, made me feel less than. Then when I started to accept the fact at age 15, my mom who was in the same boat genetically, got breast augmentation and that started my plan for after I was done with having children that was a must do. She was happier, able to wear whatever she wanted and just seemed to be ‘whole’. I still get the urge to book an appointment just to see, but I have a Husband who tells me often he loves me for me and its starting to sink in that I’m perfect how I am.

For me, I feel genetics do play a part as the majority of my family is thin, I remember the story of my maternal grandmother she was newly pregnant with her 8th child and she was 98lbs, so that plays a role and who are we to judge something that many struggle with and have almost zero control over. You can’t change your genetic makeup but this book helps teach to embrace you for you and to love who you are.
This feels like rambling now but I don’t care. No matter your body type, read this book, do the journals and love yourself for who you are because there’s only one you here.
