A Secret Splendor was a great and fast read. I felt for Arden- she's been through so much. The book itself was very predictable.
Above and Beyond was a little creepy. I don't think I would recommend it to anyone. It seemed forced.. Trevor was Kyla's stalker.. then once they get together, he makes out with her even though she begs him to stop.. Kyla is a widow who a year later was still grieving her late husband. I understand that- it takes most people years to get over the death of a loved one. T
pretty good Above and beyond was the better of the two.

I enjoyed this book
Very predictable.
I received the book from a good reads giveaway. One of my friends saw it on the bookshelf ( I was already reading a book) and asked if she could read it. I said yes and she read it and enjoyed it so mush that she gave it to her mother to read. I am now waiting for the book to be returned so I can read it!
I just received my copy from Goodread First Reads program today, and was pleasantly surprised to find a bonus copy of Texas! Chase. I am so grateful and can't wait to find time to get started
