Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.

Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.

Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.

But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.

My Thoughts
When I heard Raine Thomas was releasing another NA contemporary romance I knew I would have to get my hands on it. I have loved all Raine' books and love how she writes both YA paranormal and NA contemporary romance so flawlessly and how she manges to write both seemingly effortlessly. I need to give Raine extra thanks this time as with her latest release Meant for Her, she managed to save me from insanity. I would often turn on my kindle numerous times in the night/early hours while I fed my demanding newborn. It is my belief that her writing skills are what got me through those difficult hours.

Sierra is now one of my favourite female characters, I loved how she was "Too nice" and was always so happy and optimistic, she had an intuition about people too that was rarely wrong.

Evan  is haunted by the death of his mother and as a result is in a dark place, a place where he as vowed never to let himself get close to anyone again for fear of feeling the same depth of despair that his mothers passing caused.
Sierra as other ideas and is determined to break down his barriers into his heart.

I was impressed with myself for figuring out the "bad guy" of the story maybe my brain works differently at 2 o'clock in the morning when I am already sleep deprived which is how I was able to guess correctly it was a great curve ball though.

There was a few moments when I wanted to kick Evan's ass for the way he treated or talked to Sierra but Sierra never gives up on him. 

An amazing story line with amazing characters, especially the hot Aussie ball player Evan *swoon* I can certainly see why Sierra wanted him so much.
It was an emotional roller-coaster at times especially as sierra started to break the cracks in Evans barrier

I loved to see the familiar faces of Everly and Cole from for Everly too although there is no need to for Everly to read meant for her I would highly recommend it as it is also a fantastic book.

Cover reveal- warrior beautiful by Wendy Knight


Warrior Beautiful (Riders of Paradesos Series, #1)
Author: Wendy Knight
Check out on Goodreads!
Publication Date: October 15, 2013

Synopsis: Working with the ex you secretly love to save the souls of the innocent
is almost as bad as working with a mighty battle unicorn who would be thrilled
to watch you plummet to your death.

Scout is used to
pain. Her body has been broken, her heart has been broken, and the only thing
keeping her together is her relationship with her younger sister. Lil Bit
believes in unicorns and terrifying monsters she calls soul stealers. But
unicorns and monsters aren’t real…are they?

When Lil Bit falls
prey to the mysterious disease sweeping the country, Scout has two options –
believe the doctors who say it’s a pandemic or believe Lil Bit, who says it’s
the soul stealers. She chooses her sister and goes looking for the unicorns who
are supposed to save them. What she finds aren’t the cute pastel mythical
creatures she expects. Battle unicorns are big and tough and full of attitude.
Who knew?

Unicorns are real
and so are the monsters. Soul stealers are reaping the souls of the innocent,
and the unicorns are fighting to stop them. But to save the world, they need
the help of humans – the enemy they’re dying to protect. And first to sign up
for the fight is the ex-boyfriend Scout’s heart won’t stop loving, no matter
how determined she is to hate him.

About the Author

Wendy Knight was born and raised in Utah by a
wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she
spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no
water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, etcetera,
etcetera). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis,
watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big: her family is
slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.

You can usually
find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heel for
whatever the occasion may be. And if everything works out just right, she will
also be writing.
