Release Date: June 7, 2016
Genre: YA


Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her.  He wanted … needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to mask with an amazing smile.

When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only grew when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.

For the first time in months, she felt alive.

The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again … the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robbed her of any chance of happiness.

Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.

But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?

After practice, I looked up and saw Skylar in the bleachers. She was sitting on the opposite side of the field from everyone else, and I immediately knew why. Jenny would agitate her if she’d sat on the home side.
Running over, I took off my helmet, and Skylar walked down to the field.
“Hey,” she said with the cutest damn smile.
God, the things this girl does to my heart.
“Hey back atcha.”
“Smith! Get in the shower now!” Coach yelled out.
Skylar looked at Coach and scrunched up her face. “I didn’t get you in trouble, did I?”
Laughing, I said, “Nah. Besides, seeing your beautiful smile is worth it.”
Her eyes lit up, and my stomach felt like I was on a damn roller coaster.
“I have tonight off work,” she said.
My heart started beating faster, and it wasn’t from all the running I had just done in practice. “Oh, yeah?”
“I was wondering if you might…like to go to a movie? I mean, it would be a double date ’cause Mitch and Michelle would be there.”
I wiggled my eyebrows. “A date, huh?”
“A double date,” she replied with a chuckle.
“Smith! Less than thirty seconds to get your ass moving and into the shower!”
Skylar glanced over to Coach again and then back to me. She jutted her lip out into a pout and said, “You’d better go before you get in trouble.”
My heart stopped as my eyes fell to those lips. I was falling hard for Skylar, harder than I’d ever dreamed I could.
I started to run backward. Winking, I said, “Count me in!”

4 out of 5 stars!

Can I just say wow?? These characters and book are great

From the start we already feel for Skylar.

Something happens to her and you just think what the hell.. But when she tells what happens friends don’t really believe her and shun her. So Skylar starts to keep to herself and make it through high school without causing any attention to herself.

So who would of thought a new guy Wyatt who is happy to start fresh at a new school catches her eye.

Wyatt meets Skylar and in that first moment he instantly likes her.. Despite people trying to steer him away from tainted Skylar. He doesn’t for a moment believe what is said about Skylar.

Skylar not sure Wyatt will like her after hearing everything they say about her, she tries to keep him away.

This book is great and the feels to go with it are like wow… You just want these characters to over come everything to make it work. I’m really looking forward to the second book. Because I’m not ready to let these characters go.

Race Girl By Leigh Hutton– review

My review for

Race Girl


Leigh Hutton

4 out of 5 stars

This book was really great. It felt like when Tully the main character was racing her horse or describing something you were there. I learned a little bit more about different things and it takes a lot more then I thought to be a jockey.

We start off with Tully, who has only ever dreamed of being a jockey like her mother who died. Feels it’s in her blood. However her father has other ideas for her. They argue because her father just doesn’t want to lose his daughter the same way he lost his wife.

But Tully wants to race, and also save her farm from the Weston’s a rival race family.

When Tully meets Brandon she can’t believe her bad luck.. The first boy that she really may like is a Weston. But she soon learns Brandon is nothing like his father or family name. When Tully is presented with being with Brandon and winning the Melbourne cup, saving her family’s farm.. What will she do?

I of course don’t want to give anything away, but I will say this I hope there is another book to follow.

Six months later, in the heat of a Queensland summer, sixteen-year-old Tully is ready to face her fears.
