Review – When We Were Reckless by Emery Rose

54264846. sy475

When We Were Reckless; Lost Stars #3ย 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Age Gap/Unrequited Love/Best Friend’s Sister/Contemporary Romance

Author: Emery Rose

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A heartbreakingly beautiful story of how love can repair a broken soul and make you stronger than you ever thought possible.

I wish I could share all of the beautiful moments that happened in this story, but I’d basically be documenting most of the book verbatim, so, I’ll stick to a review ๐Ÿ™‚

Considering Jesse is a broken man and Quinn is suffering from unrequited love, these two have the most beautiful souls that continually lift each other up and truly want nothing but the best for each other out of life. They have known each other all their lives, given the age difference, Jesse is the best friend of one of Quinn’s older brothers (she has three of them, who are all overly protective), so Jesse has known Quinn since the day she was born. When We Were Reckless highlights another great family, the Cavanaugh’s, which I hope we see more of in the future.

Of the McCallister brothers, I’d call Jesse the charmer. It’s no surprise that when Quinn was just five years old she declared her undying love for him and told him that she was going to marry him. Thirteen years later her affection has only grown for him, but when Jesse comes home after retiring from motocross, (a mystery in itself, since he’s lived and breathed the sport for years) Quinn wants to help the man she knows, but she also wants to explore the feelings that have blossomed into something deeper now that she is officially an adult.

I’ve always loved Jesse, a guy so bright, full of life, full of everything – competitive spirit, integrity, hard work, he is just a likeable guy, but in this book he is a fallen man, his spirit is broken, and he is afraid to try, afraid to fail, afraid to love again. It was fascinating to watch someone who was the king of his own world, a shiny light to everyone around him become so dim. His mood now affected those around him and because he saw what his mood did, it kicked him in the pants and made him want to get better. That is the spirit I love about Jesse. He’s that guy you root for because he is simply amazing and he doesn’t stay down for long, not just for himself, but because he wants the best for everyone around him.

Quinn may be young, but she is wise beyond her years. She’s also a lot like Jesse, full of optimism and passion (or at least the old Jesse). She may have a bit of hero worship from when she was younger, but they are also family friends and she wants to believe that their long time friendship will help now that he’s home and hiding out from the world. She wants to bring the light back to Jesse’s life and perhaps open his eyes to the possibilities of the two of them now that he’s single.ย  ย Could she finally have her fairy tale ending or will Jesse break her heart?

The McCallisters and Cavanagh’s are both great families and I hope there are more stories to come from both of them. There are interconnections to past books, but When We Were Reckless can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

Jesse McCallister.
Motocross legend. Reckless heartbreaker. And the love of my life.
Too bad he only thought of me as his best friendโ€™s little sister.

Brody McCallister was only supposed to be a means to an end. My golden ticket to get me closer to what I really neededโ€”a way to make peace with what Iโ€™d done when I was eighteen, dirt poor, and left to fend for myself.

 

I only had six weeks in the middle of a hectic world tour to do it.

So the last thing I needed was to fall for a cocky cowboy. A walking contradiction with a charming grin, a dirty mouth, and a gift for healing wild and broken things.

 

His life was in Texas.

Mine was on the road.

He guarded his privacy fiercely.

I was constantly hounded by paparazzi.

 

Everyone warned me it could never work, that ultimately Iโ€™d be forced to chooseโ€”my music career or him.

I didnโ€™t listen. I fell for him anyway.

Hook, line, and proverbial sinker.

 

But Brody was hiding secrets.

And when the storm finally broke, it destroyed everything in its wake … including us.

Brody McCallister was only supposed to be a means to an end. My golden ticket to get me closer to what I really neededโ€”a way to make peace with what Iโ€™d done when I was eighteen, dirt poor, and left to fend for myself.

 

I only had six weeks in the middle of a hectic world tour to do it.

So the last thing I needed was to fall for a cocky cowboy. A walking contradiction with a charming grin, a dirty mouth, and a gift for healing wild and broken things.

 

His life was in Texas.

Mine was on the road.

He guarded his privacy fiercely.

I was constantly hounded by paparazzi.

 

Everyone warned me it could never work, that ultimately Iโ€™d be forced to chooseโ€”my music career or him.

I didnโ€™t listen. I fell for him anyway.

Hook, line, and proverbial sinker.

 

But Brody was hiding secrets.

And when the storm finally broke, it destroyed everything in its wake … including us.

Review – When the Storm Breaks by Emery Rose

54264834. sy475

When the Storm Breaks; Lost Stars #2ย 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes:ย Contemporary/Single Dad/Rock Star/Cowboy Romance

Author: Emery Rose

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Layers and layers that create tears and emotions and feelings…it’s what Emery Rose is the best at and as much as you want to despise her for it, I keep coming back for more. I totally love the angst and heartache and just overall happiness that I end up with by the end.

Brody is a character that has always felt broken. Never measuring up, never feeling wanted, and certainly never coming first in anyone’s life. He connects better with his horses than he does with people so it’s no wonder when Shiloh comes to stay on his farm he doesn’t see much beyond her initial stay. Brody is far from an optimist, especially when it comes to relationships, but something about Shiloh and the brokenness he sees inside her calls to him like no one has before.

Shiloh may be a rockstar, but living in the spotlight isn’t exactly conducive to making genuine friends. It doesn’t help that the few people who actually know the real her have actually taken advantage of her, breaking down her spirit over and over again. She needs to get away before she starts her long tour and Brody’s ranch is just the place to do it. She never expected to fall for the grumpy cowboy, but when it comes time to leave her rockstar life is even harder to return to than she expected.

These two people live on opposite sides of the same coin. Both have been broken down by people they loved, but they are now two people who live very different lives, one in the spotlight and another who lives in the wide open country. While they have been brought together by chance could they find a middle ground and make it work?

“Her voice was my favorite sound, and I didnโ€™t think Iโ€™d ever tire of listening to it. It still reached deep inside and rattled my bones. Made my heart ache in a way I couldnโ€™t explain. Nobody had ever touched me the way she had.” – Brody

Over and over my heart broke for Brody. While I read the first book and know Jude and Lilaโ€™s story and where Brodyโ€™s friendship came out with them, my heart aches even more knowing where his feelings were during that whole timeline. Brody constantly feels heโ€™s never good enough, no matter what heโ€™s doing, or where he is, or who heโ€™s with. The rare exception is being with his son or with Shiloh, which is a first considering who she is to the world, but with him she’s just her.ย  So jumping into something more with a woman who could hurt him is risky and Brody is …ugh…gonna break you.

While Shiloh has her ups and downs in life as well, it’s Brody who truly captured my heart and broke it with Emery’s depthful writing. She has this way of bringing out feelings of being totally drained and filled up all at once. When the Storm Breaks feels representative of those emotions inside me, along with everything representative in the book, so have a few tissues handy.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This anthology is jammed packed with love stories. There is everything from catching up on favorite characters to brand new short stories from 30 authors! A couple of the short snippets, I’m really hoping there will be longer books coming in the future, but until then…here are a few of reviews from some of my favorite authors contained in this anthology!

Arrow and Salem by Saffron A. Kent – Arrow and Salem have made it through a lot, but their wedding is finally here, however, Salem’s sister reaches out one last time. This short is intense. Also, for fans of this series, Saffron gives us a peek into what’s coming up. Squeeeee!!!!

Dash and Holly by Susan Stoker – A new short story that is suspenseful and steamy. It is the perfect story to be read back to back with Riley Edwards, Magic and Stella.

Magic and Stella by Riley Edwards – Magic and Stella and the best friends to Dash and Holly and their love story happens right alongside same timeline. Both short stories are full of suspense and steam and wonderfully written.

There are so many stories and I can truly recommend them all, so jump in and read your favorites or find new favorites. It’s all good.

BOOK BLURB

Growing up, Jude McCallister was the bane of my existence.

My best friend. Fiercest ally. The most annoying boy in the world.

At eighteen, the boy I loved to hate became the man I couldnโ€™t live without.

We were young. Madly in love. Invincible.

Strong enough to weather any storm.

Cocky enough to believe that no amount of time or distance could destroy us.

When Jude finally returned home from overseas, it should have been cause for celebration. But the man Iโ€™d fallen in love with was gone, and in his place was someone I no longer recognized.

Sweet Chaosย 
(A standalone)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Dylan St. Clair; the brooding, mysterious, yet always has the back of his twin sister, Remy, is finally here!

This is a complete standalone, but if you read Wilder Love you probably were wondering all about Dylan and had to know his story just like I was. Dylan is the twin brother to Remy and we got glimpses of Dylan in her book and those glimpses were just juicy enough to want more!!!

Dylan and Remy were, I say loosely, were raised by a mother that lived a gypsy lifestyle. They never stayed in one place for long which led to a slew of problems. When they reached the age of sixteen they arrived in California and both Dylan and Remy decided to make a stand of finishing out their high school years in that final spot. This lead to both good and bad decisions in their lives. For Remy this lead to a lot of heartbreak (but that is her story to read) and for Dylan this did step him in the direction of becoming a self-made millionaire. A far cry from the trailer trash his life once was.

Whoever said money made you happy?

Scarlett was always second best. The second sister. Treated no better than a replacement. She was used to being overlooked. That is until Dylan came into her life. He never made her feel like a cast off, but as her sister’s ex-boyfriend she feels like a concession prize. Never measuring up to Sienna’s perfection. Even though Dylan never says anything directly she can hardly help the way she feels when it’s the way she’s been treated her entire life.

Whoever said having what you wished for will make you happy?

Dylan and Scarlett are both scarred in their own ways by their families. The old saying “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence” holds so true for the two of them. Dylan grew up scraping by. Moving from town to town with a mother that wasn’t involved in his or his sister’s lives at all. He fought against all the odds and turned his life around to make something better of himself. Scarlett on the other hand grew up in luxury in the same house her entire life. However, her life was pretty lonely. Her sister ignored her and her father and mother were cold and distant. When she refused to do what her father wanted he cut her off financially so by the time she was twenty Scarlett was living paycheck to paycheck.

Dylan and Scarlett may seem different at first glance, but are actually more alike the more you get to know them. They both hold their core values very close to their chest which, as it turns out, are both very similar. They are loyal, almost to a fault, but as much as they are stubborn, they love (in their own way) ferociously.

Their love when they first met would have been forbidden, yes, and you get to meet them both at this saucy/bantering age, but this story takes place years after that when they are both consenting adults. They are both older and wiser, which takes the forbidden age aspect away, but it does lay the sister’s ex heavy at their feet.

This couple will turn you inside out and practically break you with how deeply they care about each other and those around them. Thinking of their family, the town, and just dealing with a relationship that is new to both of them who have never dealt with one before is an adjustment. There is a lot of emotional punch in this story.

While Sweet Chaos can be read as a standalone, I do suggest reading Wilder Love to bring a deeper understanding to Dylan, he’s a real heartstring puller.

EXCERPT

Before he lit a cigarette, Dylan checked that I was done eating. โ€œYou go to the gym and you obviously work hard for that bodyโ€ฆโ€ That was a fact, no use pretending I hadnโ€™t noticed. You didnโ€™t get a body like Dylanโ€™s by sitting around on your ass. โ€œbut you still smoke?โ€

โ€œItโ€™s all about balance.โ€

I laughed.

He took a drag of his cigarette, his eyes narrowed, the little lines around his eyes crinkling. He could even make smoking look sexy. But then, Dylan could make just about anything look sexy. Feeling bold, I plucked the cigarette out of his mouth and claimed it as my own.

He scowled. โ€œYouโ€™re not a smoker.โ€

I took a drag and tipped back my head, blowing the smoke into the cold night air. โ€œI know. But I know how to do it now without coughing up a lung.โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s a shame,โ€ he said, extracting a cigarette for himself. Cupping his tattooed hand over the tip, he flicked his Zippo and took a drag, the cherry glow burning brighter as he inhaled.

 

We sat side by side on the tailgate, smoking our cigarettes, and the undercurrent of electricity Iโ€™d always felt around him was still there. I knew it was just a chemical reaction, a trick my body played on me whenever he was near, but I wished my brain would send a signal to make it stop.

โ€œYou donโ€™t talk as much as you used to,โ€ he observed after moments of silence ticked by.

โ€œI thought youโ€™d appreciate the peace and quiet.โ€

โ€œI never minded it when you talked.โ€

I laughed. โ€œCould have fooled me. You told me you didnโ€™t have time for my teen drama and shit.โ€

He took another drag of his cigarette, blowing the smoke out of the side of his mouth and huffed out a laugh before he spoke. โ€œYou remember that.โ€

โ€œWhy do you think I stopped texting? You injured my pride.โ€ It had been more than my pride. Those words had hurt my foolish teenage heart far more than they should have. But he didnโ€™t need to know that Iโ€™d cried over him.

I opened the plastic lid of my shake and tossed the cigarette into the cup, the dregs of the milkshake dousing the fire and making it sizzle. Replacing the lid, I tossed the cup in one of the takeout bags and leaned back on my hands, watching the lights in the canyon.

He gave me a sidelong glance. โ€œFunny. I used to have a hoodie just like that.โ€ He smirked.

I stifled a groan. What were the chances Iโ€™d be wearing his UC San Diego hoodie tonight? The same hoodie heโ€™d given me the night I snuck in to watch his underground fight. I took it off and tried to give it back to him.

He waved it off. โ€œKeep it. You ruined your sweater for me.โ€

โ€œYou were bleeding. What else was I supposed to do?โ€

โ€œNot ruin your sweater.โ€

โ€œYou got in that fight because of me.โ€

โ€œI wanted to kill those assholes for messing with you.โ€

Heโ€™d gotten into a fight over me, after beating his opponent in the underground fight. I remembered thinking that nobody had ever fought for me before. That was the night Iโ€™d fallen in love with Dylan St. Clair, a few weeks shy of my sixteenth birthday. It was also the night I realized that he would never be mine and I needed to forget him.

As he crushed his cigarette under the sole of his high top, his eyes were on my face. It felt like he was seeing me for the first time. His hooded gaze lowered to my mouth and I licked my bottom lip at the same time he did. Then he shook his head and strode away. โ€œLetโ€™s go. Iโ€™ve got shit to do.โ€

And just like that, I was fifteen again.
