**Each book in this series can be read as a stand alone.**

I fell in love with Manda Baker eight years ago, and I loved her to the core of her soul. We were supposed to have that elusive happily ever after and spend a lifetime together. But that was all before she was STOLEN from me.

Her best friend, Sarah Erickson, killed her. It wasn’t intentional. It was far worse. Every

Oh my damaged Caleb! When I listened to Changing Course last week and met Caleb Jones, I knew I needed his book asap. And when I heard it was with Sarah’s sister, Emma- I about died. Who would have thought a pairing like this would have worked? Not me… at least not at first. Somehow, Aly knew better and worked her magic. Now I think Emma is the only one for Caleb and the only one who could have ever pulled him from the life of despair he was living.

This series has been an addictive ride from the start!! Both books have deep emotions, beautiful second chances, and hot swoon-filled romances with unique twists and gorgeous Alpha male heroes!!

While this story can be read on it’s own, it’s closely interconnected with the first book so I strongly recommend reading them in order because this one picks u

”Love me more than you hate her.”


After just finishing the first book of this series I was excited to jump into Caleb’s story. Caleb lost his fiancée, Manda in the fatal crash that occurred in book one of this story. Years later he is still investigating the accident to put Sarah Erickson behind bars and he hasn’t let go of his anger one bit.

This isn't the Caleb I pictured in Book 1 and I disliked the heroine, Emma. She is too forward and pushy. She just threw herself at him! Everything begins in such an ordinary way that I have no enthusiasm to read further.

Oh and a trusted friend of mine who has just finished reading this book told me not to read it because there is one of my triggers in it (view spoiler)

And I also read one more spoiler in a friend's review and I cannot get

I am too possessive over my "HEROES" to like this book...

Hero carried his ex-lover's tattoo on his heart and heroine on the back and would not remove the ex-tattoo for the heroine...Yeah screams second best? because she was accepting of his past? How convenient for the Hero! he visits his ex-grave like 5 times a week and after 5 years he's still hang up on her? and all this time he treat the heroine like crap calling her names!

This series is amazing! I don't even know what more I can say about it. I love every book more than the last (with the exception of Fighting Silence. That's still my ultimate fave.) CALEB is AMAZING!!! OMG!

As with the first book in the series, I have some issues with the heroes. Caleb just came across as being a bit too immature at times. He was 33, not fucking 3. Yes, what happened was tragic but you have to let go sometime.

"Damn it, Caleb. Grow up.".

Forgiveness is a very abstract term.
It doesn't erase the past.

Will I read the next book? Originally I didn't intend to as to me Sarah has no real redeeming features. Even with what went down in this book. Yep, I guess that twist I d

Yup, Caleb's story was amazing. He finally met his match with Emma who was feisty and a wonderful woman. Together they could set the sheets on fire. Their chemistry was blazing hot and off the charts.

What I liked about Caleb's story was how he tried and wanted to let go, move on from Manda's death but he was so stuck in the past and his time with Manda. All he wanted was to love Emma and be with her and when something didn't go according to his plan he got scared and ran. Emma was fantastic in h

This book took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions; joy, pain, despair, arousal, etc. And that twist!! Wow, I did not see that one coming. I'm wondering how that plays into the lives of not only Caleb and Emmy but Brett and Jesse as well.

What's clear though is Aly Martinez can definitely tell a story and I know I've said this before but it bears repeating: I'll definitely be on a lookout for this author's other books.

OMG!!! I am absolutely in love with Stolen Course by Aly Martinez. Hands down Stolen Course is in my top favorites of 2014. This book was AH-MAZZZZING!!! I’m completely smitten and in love with Caleb Jones and Emma Erickson’s story. From the prologue to the very last page of this book, I was captivated by this emotional, moving, heartfelt journey of forgiveness, healing, second chances, and love.

If you couldn’t tell from my mini rant/question above, I loved this book. No, love isn’t the right word for what I felt for this book. I'll be honest and say that I didn't read the first book in the series prior to reading this. I deeply regret that. Don't misunderstand me, this is definitely a stand alone, but I really fe

You know what I love about Aly Martinez? I love the fact that her stories are real. They are made up of real issues, real feelings, real emotions, and most of all…real struggle.

In Changing Course, we learned of the accident that changed the life of so many people. We watched Brett struggle with letting go of Sarah and finding love again with Jesse.

We learned of Sarah’s self-destruction and her new found hatred towards her family and friends.

5 Stars for ripping my heart out over and over again while I was sitting on a rollercoaster ride!

Aly never disappoints on delivering a unique and original story. It's why I will always read her books.

Kicking myself for not reading it sooner.

Beautiful writing and amazing story.

I was giving this book 5 stars after ' Hang on to the headboard, baby'. That sentence alone deserves 5 stars. But then after that the sizzle is gone and comes all the baggage. Especially Caleb baggage. I still love Caleb though. My reaction is to protect Caleb. Marry him even he is not proposing. Anything for Caleb. Especially for a man with THAT tattoo.

But after 30% into the book, I sort of cringe at Caleb. He is suffocating Emma. And Manda too. What is it with this man wants to rush marry to

More like 3.5 stars rounded. This was another quick read/listen for me. I did enjoy this one better than Changing Course, which was Brett and Jessie’s book. But again this is another second best/I can’t get over the death of my fiancé (who truly sounded like a piece of work) book, and well if you follow my reviews you know those are not my favorite books. There’s a lot of back and forth or moving forward then backwards for Caleb, and way too much about the dead girl. However, this is Aly and she ...more

This book follows on from Changing Course and tells the story of Caleb, the best friend of Brett (hero of book 1), and the other man whose life was shattered following a car crash which took the life of his fiancée, Manda. Make sure you read that book first to get the full set up of the characters!

I adored Caleb in the last book, and completely fell in love with him in this one! Just like his best friend, he is a man who loves deeply and completely, and he was (and actual

For the life of me I will NEVER understand the need to belittle and shame female characters in order to portray so called strong alpha males!! This story had me roll my eyes so many times I gave myself a headache ;) !!


Thank you A.Martinez for writing about ludicrous heroines who loves being emotional punching bags that is really what us readers look for in a romance novel !! #sarcasmistheanswer

I am speechless right now. This book was absolutely amazing. Talk about a roller coaster ride! I really don't even know where to start. I just don't think I can even eloquently state how much I loved this book. I laughed my ass off 97% through. I teared up, I got angry and I swooned. Caleb was an ass but he was so heartbroken I couldn't even blame him. His story was heart wrenching and it sucked me in from page one.

So I really wanted to love this as much if not more than Changing Course (which was a 5 star read for me) but ugh! Caleb was such a major tool for most of the book. He treated Emmy worse than crap, was totally unsupportive and spent his time sitting at Manda's grave when Emmy needed him. He was surly most of the time and needed his arse kicked, like on repeat!!!

I had hoped he would at least redeem himself by getting Manda's tattoo over his heart changed, I was so bummed he didn't. I don

Update - so I was lucky enough to beta read stolen course and OMFG, Aly has done it again. I was so taken with Caleb from the beginning and loved hearing his story. There was a constant feeling of dread, bc honestly you just know the shit is gonna hit the fan (and in a HUGE way, the only way Aly knows how to do it) this book has a perfect mixture of romance and drama, with some excellent twist and turns.

4 1/2 Stars! I loved this book. I loved the plot, the twists, the heartache, the FEELS, and the character's. There is a lot packed into this gem. This is the follow up to Changing Course (Wrecked and Ruined, #1) by Aly Martinez , while it could be read as a standalone, it probably shouldn't. Read Changing Course first.

I added an extra star to this, I still fucking hate Caleb but the author did a great job with the story and combining all the characters from the last book. Different main characters but same storyline and she did a fantastic job at fusing it together.
