I just finished Lone Star Joy and I must say I was riveted. Joy is an amazing character, vulnerable but strong, afraid but brave at the same time. And when she meets Stamos, fireworks go off. I loved Stamos from a previous book and was looking forward to getting to know him better. The story sucked me in right away with an unusual premise and a cast of quirky and real supporting characters, even the horses. I especially liked Benji and Bea and Callie and Garrett from another book by Ms. Ball. An ...more

Wow. First of all, what a story! Been a while since I've read a book with so many unique plot twists.

Joy... she's been in prison since she was 14, taking the rap to save her brother. She been shanked numerous times. Her very own father has sent people to kill her. She's never known love. The only love she's ever known has been for a family that wants her dead. Can you imagine the turmoil this woman goes through?

She's released on a special work program to help on a ranch, owned by Stamos. At firs

A wonderful Western Contemporary Romance of love and survival. I cried through half of the book and smiled through parts and just awed at the emotion I felt overall. Joy is made of the strength that comes from severe pain and Stamos becomes her rock with that gentleness that she needs in her life. This is a story filled with survival, hope, suspense and love. Keep the tissues handy and don't plan to sleep until you have finished and absorbed this book.

Writing is my bliss. I write, I read, I review and I support. I don't believe in hiding behind the anonymity of an ID to insult and hurt others. I love to meet new authors and readers feel free to friend me!!!
