Title: Thin Love
By: Eden Butler
My Copy: Ebook for Honest Review
Love isn't supposed to be an addiction. It isn't supposed to leave you bleeding.
Kona pushed, Keira pulled, and in their wake, they left behind destruction.
She sacrificed everything for him.
It wasn't enough.
But the wounds of the past can never be completely forgotten and still the flame remains, slumbers between the pleasure of yesterday and the thought of what might have been.
Now, sixteen years later, Keira returns home to bury the mother who betrayed her, just as Kona tries to hold onto what remains of his NFL career with the New Orleans Steamers. Across the crowded bustle of a busy French Market, their paths collide, conjuring forgotten memories of a consuming touch, skin on skin, and the still smoldering fire that begs to be rekindled.
When Kona realizes the trifecta of betrayal—his, Keira's and those lies told to keep them apart—his life is irrevocably changed and he once again takes Keira down with him into the fire that threatens to ignite them both.
Thin Love is a gritty and raw story about young love and second chances. This will not be a easy and flowing love story of awe worthy romance, but rather a dark and gritty journey of destined loves. Kona and Keira will be forced to overcome obstacles and trials at every turn, but this reflect on the genuine and honest personalities of their characters. In many ways the two are just as much saviors to one another; as they are the enemy. It is one heart stopping moment after another. After a horribly tragic night Kona and Kiera will take different paths, but the future has then destined to cross paths again. Sixteen years later they will tested yet again, and they will be forced to overcome obstacles yet again. Thin Love was a very slow starter, but after a short time the story really begins moving rather quickly. Until it slides to a screeching halt. This is the point where the story seems to jump a little off track for me. Everything no matter how terrible was acceptable when Kona and Keira are children, but when they are reintroduced as adults I expected a much more responsible relationship. Kona’s continued oblivion to his Mother’s vindictive and betraying personality was a major let down. It almost seemed the exact same relationship told before and after just a different ages. While still a good story I was hoping their characters would have really changed as adults.

Title: Enjoying the Chase
By: Kirsty Moseley
Series: Guarded Hearts #2
My Copy: Ebook from Amazon
Nate Peters is living the playboy life. He has great friends, a great job, no responsibilities, no girlfriend, and he loves it. Nate, being incredibly skilled with a pick-up line, has never failed to get a girl in his life… until one day he meets Rosie York. Rosie is completely uninterested in him. Being unable to stand a dented ego, Nate makes it his mission to win her over. Not used to putting in much effort, Nate is surprisingly enjoying the chase of this off-limits little brunette. Maybe he has finally met his match… But Rosie has a few surprises of her own which will make it remarkably more difficult for him to get close to her.
Oh… How I love me some Kirsty Moseley!!!! My first introduction was through The Boy Who Sneaks Through My Bedroom Window, and let me just tell you have amazing that experience was; Oh Yeah I did in its raving review. Which is quite similar to the raving review that book one of the Guarded Hearts series enticed. Which should leave you fairly unsurprised that Enjoying the Chase will have the same raving review. Due to the small number of titles published, and the short time I have been following I have only experienced three books from this wonderful author. Each and every further seals my deep loyalty and love for her style and knack for creating an inspiring romance. Nate and Rosie are not new characters, since we experienced both in the debut novel of this series. They are deeply loved for their roles in the past story, as best friends to main characters, but the depth of their personalities was unexpected. They are such wonderful characters, and I was captivated by their story. Furthermore, I can not express how absolutely perfect they were created for one another. When you offer a storyline of the two best friends falling in love there is a slight risk of the story feeling forced and unrealistic. I didn’t feel any of this with Rosie and Nate’s story. There was never even a question while reading of how convenient the relationship would be. It was so friction filled that I easily overlooked the convenience, and was rooting for Nate to be the better man. As a Mother, I felt a deep connection to this story; just as any Mother will be a sure fan. Watching the trials for this single mother and child is hard, and left me rooting for a better future. Rosie is a strong and independent character never looking for a handout, and always willing to do what ever it takes to provide. I especially loved the lack of girly personality from her. Everything about his story jumped out at me leaving me feeling right at home in story. I can not wait to see if Moseley has more in store for the Guarded Hearts series. This is a five star series from a five star author.
"I blast the stereo in a vain attempt to drown out my thoughts. I don’t want to be thinking about him and analyzing every detail of first period. It makes me feel like a young, foolish girl, and I’m embarrassed that I can’t control the way my body reacts every time his eyes meet mine."
In a quiet town in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona, everything in life is seemingly perfect for eighteen-year-old Kaley Kennedy. She has loving parents, loyal friends, and is dating the hottest boy in school. With only a few months left of her senior year, she’s looking forward to an epic summer before heading off to Los Angeles for college.
Without warning, a gorgeous new math teacher interrupts Kaley’s predictable little world, challenging who she is. Suddenly, parties, dates, and Friday nights with her friends seem empty and unfulfilling as she finds herself obsessing over his every move. Desperate for something more, but determined to ignore her fierce attraction, every single relationship in her life begins to crumble by forces beyond her control. Struggling to transition from adolescence to adulthood, Kaley must choose between playing it safe or risking more than just her heart. . . .
