This Heart of mine & proof of Forever

Phoenix is out of prison and back in whiskey creek living near her mom. Riley is apprehensive to see her with Jacob. omg best slow burn get together of this group. so many missed connections and Phoenix is very concerned about Jacob and making up for lost time. we do see the gang through the book, but the only main one is Kyle. the others are sporadic til a certain trip. this book was so much better than the others ones, and glad Lincoln ( rex) could be helpful :) I loved eve in this book.

I so wish that the other books previously were just as good. maybe because we don't see Presley or chey very much in the book. no resolution on the baby drama . I did love that this book was more about Riley and Phoenix. I can't wait to read Kyle story...what no Joe's book. :( on a side note I loved reading about the local town's and high schools playing baseball , so I could relate. I think that this brings the series back and I guess I am not breaking up with it. Thanks Riley and brought a reader back. There was the right friend interaction and phoenix had a tough time getting back to normal life after being in prison.

This book was a wild ride. Mare doesn't really pick anyone but there is a triangle. I loved learning about this world . This did remind me of Xmen. This book has many twists and turns. I am so glad that this book lived up to the hype.

Allison and Adam meet at a Halloween Party and they have chemistry. He is still dealing with issues from his past. She is dealing with trying to prove something to her father. They want  to have a relationship but with her father putting money into boomerang it makes it tough. They are both very active with sports, diving, and horses. They also live near each other. Trust is big in this book , and between them. This book had some smexy times , and this was a fast read and now I am reading it.  I think the cabin is the hottest.

Thanks so much to william morrow and this is my Honest Review
