✯4 Gypsy Stars!!!

Emily Minton and Shelley Springfield they better not stop co-writing. Because, they're magic together. This is a little different books. But, just as good!

Gypsy Rose has had a terrible childhood. Her mother is more  worried about her drugs, alcohol and men then Gypsy. When the latest guy goes after Gypsy she can't take it anymore. Gypsy packs her bags and runs until she ends up in Macon. Gypsy got taken in by a family and ended up getting a job and the family she always wanted.    

A few years later there's an explosion. Gypsy was forced to move about an hour away. Right after she moves there she meets Chance Ryan. He's  a business owner and such an honest caring man.

He moves Gypsy outta her crappy place, gives her  a job and so much more. He also wants to get to know her on a deeper level. Gypsy hasn't gotten over the first 18yrs of her life. Chance will go slow as long as she's willing to try. Gypsy has to learn to open up. She needs to realize she has a family. That she's loved and nothing will ever hurt her again. But, its hard for her.

I read this in one sitting. Gypsy was extremely strong. The way she was able to adapt with things was great. And, Chance.. OMG... He made me swoon. Multiple times. He is the perfect man. This was a great quick read. Can't wait for Emily and Shelley's next book.

✯5 Beautiful Stars!!!

This is the last book to an absolutely beautiful, heart wrenching series. AL Jackson proves time and time again why she's the best at what she does.

Zachary known as Zee to his friends and family, stepped up as Sunder's drummer after his brother Mark died. His brother was his best friend. Zee hasn't been the same person since he lost his brother. He's never forgiven himself and has been keeping SO many secrets that he is lucky he can keep them straight, let alone remember them. All the secrecy is killing him slowly.  But, Zee won't let his brother down.

 Then, one night he's walking home and Alexis is yelling for help and Zee rushes to help her. The instant he sets his eyes on her something changes inside of him. A wall starts to chip. Zee won't let anybody continue hurting her. Thats what he continued telling  himself and everybody closest to him. But, somewhere along the way it started to be so much more.  He starts to feel things that he doesn't think he's worthy of. The happier Zee is feeling is worse his gut is feeling BC his heart is telling him one thing and his head another.

Alexis loves her sisters so much. She'll do anything to protect them. Even if they put her in danger. Then, Zee showed up one night. The night she was in danger and in need of protection and he became her knight in shining armor. She named him her "little drummer boy" and she was his "sunshine". Alexis starts showing Zee how life could be if he just opened up to it. Alexis knows he's afraid just doesn't know why. They both understand how the other feels about the others bro/sis. They'd both do anything for them.

This book absolutely gutted me. Gutted me! The last book in this series that really truly gutted me was Drowning To Breathe the Baz connected the dots and let go of the green monkey. Yes, it was that kind of ugly cry. Getting flashback of Mark and Zee. Learning their highs and lows made me smile and then cry that ugly cry. AL Jackson is a genius. I'm so glad I got to read his beautiful series. Every book there was somebody saving the other. They were coming alive. It is in my top 10 favorite series! I am so upset and devastated this series is over and yet excited to see what she's writing next.

BLURB

I know what it’s like to have your heart split down the middle. 
One-half chases her. The other half chases after the lies, deceit, and betrayal. 
It’s a burning ball of hell. 
Seconds, minutes, hours, and years all spent endured the depth of my own burning inferno. 
All of it runs together while life passes me by.
Thirteen years ago, the woman I was in love with left me standing at the altar. 
Hurt. 
Broken. 
Humiliated. 
Some say thirteen is a lucky number. 
Me? I curse the number.
Now she’s back. 
Reminding me.
Torturing me.
She says things are not what they seem.
That they weren't then either.
Do I believe her?
Do I forgive? 
Forget? 
Time and truth will tell.


✯5 Tyson Bright Stars!!!

If you read Riddick and Jude, the first two books in this series then you are ahead of the game. This is a standalone and you won't be lost if you didn't read the first two. Even though I read them I was so unprepared for Tyson and Lynne.

Tyson and Lynne were high school sweethearts. They were lonely, unpopular and unloved . Then they met and they were finally happy and loved. When the were graduating Tyson was going to enlist. They were planning on getting married. But, on their wedding day only Tyson showed up for it. 

Years later a new neighbor moves next door to Riddick, Jude and the girls. They later found out who she was. Tyson disappears for awhile until he was ready to face the situation.

Lynne has loved Tyson since she layed eyes on him. Right before their wedding day, she gets devastating news. Her evil parents convince her Tyson won't stand by her and  to leave him.She gets married to a guy she doesn't love. Lynne's back to being lonely and unloved. She's never stopped loving Tyson. She came back for him.

Tyson was crushed when Lynne left him without a word. Then, she got married and he became dead inside. He took it out on the people closest to him. Riddick, Jude, Dane have never asked him what happened. 

Tyson's past has fast forwarded to his present. Tyson realizes he must face it. When Tyson learns the truth and I mean the whole truth, everything changes. His insides the parts that got all hard. They're starting to crumble and he's starting to feel things he hasn't in awhile. But, before he can give into them Tyson plans on going after the people who took it away. Lynne must also face and stand up to the people who've took everything away from her. She'll learn things she never knew. They have a huge battle ahead of them. 

Tyson finally tell the guys in. They open their arms and hearts  to him for finally opening up to them. They're a family and they stand behind him. Lynne was alone. Then Maggie, Cora, Vivian and their mother entered her life.Tyson's family opened their hearts and lives to her. 

Tyson and Lynne's story was a tear jerker. They had so much against them from such an early age. It broke my heart. It would be a great idea to read the first two books. It would be good if you knew Riddick & Cora story as well as Jude & Vivian's story.

Kathy Coopmans has such a beautiful way of writing. She makes me feel everything from crying to laughing to pissed the next. She's one author I'll buy without needing to read the synopsis. I can't wait for the next book in this series.  

TRAILER











Excerpt

My insides shake as she walks out with a warm breeze only to be replaced by the freezing chills and the ice cold stare of Jude. He shuts the door behind him, stands firmly in place and stares me down.
“That intimidating look may work well on the criminals you pick up; I assure you, Jude, it will not work on me. Now, what can I help you with?” Yes, I know that Tyson and his friends are cops. I know everything there is to know about him. He left as planned for the Army shortly after I left him. He’s a womanizer. Sleeps around, drinks and gets into fights. He’s angry, bitter and out of control and it all reflects back on me. I’ve studied the symptoms of a broken person. I’m one myself.
I know very little about his time at war. I’m sure some of his anger stems from there. I feared for his life every day. Kept up with the news and terror weighed on my shoulders every second he was deployed. I’m so proud of him for what he’s done with his life. Coming from a young kid with the odds of turning into a criminal stacked against him to a man of honor. A soldier turned cop. I couldn’t ask for a better man than him.
I still haven’t been able to let him go. The man I left lives in the tattered mess of my heart, and I never stopped praying our lives would have been different, that fate wouldn’t have snuck up on me and kicked my feet right out from under me. Stole our chance at happiness. I’ve loved Tyson since the first day I laid my eyes on him. Through time and therapy, I thought I would be able to stop loving him. That there was no way, love could be this strong that months, years and a decade later it would still linger. The precious memories I kept locked away swarmed to the forefront of my mind the minute I saw him again. Stolen kisses, bodies tangled together. Our hearts so full of promises to one another. I broke them all. Broke him. Broke me. I’m here to fix it. Somehow.
 I remain calm matching Jude’s gaze while every cell in my body is a quivering mess. My stomach shifts uneasily and sweat breaks out at the nape of my neck. But, I will not falter or allow him to see that his presence is terrifying me.
“When Tyson first told me it was you I didn’t want to believe it. I prayed for you to disappear, to crawl back under your rock and stay the hell away from him. Now after seeing what this is doing to him. I’ve changed my mind. Before I get into why I think you owe me an explanation as to what your plans are, I want you to know I’m standing here not trying to intimidate you. I’m here to tell you if your reasons are not legit. I will fucking destroy you.” Good luck. You can’t destroy something that’s already broken.
