People think you can only love one person. That’s not true. There are two types of love; the forever kind and the always kind.

Forever love means you can’t live without that person. When you close your eyes the image you see is the two of you holding hands, sitting on the porch, and watching your grandchildren playing in the yard. You look over, smile, and whisper “we’ve l

Title: Offbeat
Author: S. Moose
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Series or Standalone: Series
Rating: Stars (Rounded to 4* For Goodreads and Amazon)



I’m always on the lookout for new authors. Not so much “new” but ones that for me, I haven’t experienced before. I’m always looking to fall in love with a new book boyfriend (one I might not normally meet because there are literally a lot of authors still out there I’ve never had the pleasure of reading), a new heroine that just steals my h

Offbeat by S Moose was a raw, emotional read from start to finish.

This one is a hard one to talk about because I don't want to give anything away. This is a book that needs to be experienced for itself. All the raw emotions read and lived through on its own and experienced as you go through. You don't want any spoilers taking away the experience for you.

Here is what I will tell you... it was obvious from the synopsis and teasers that there would be some sort of a love triangle involved in this

I was so torn on this book.
The story line and writing was beautiful and touching and the characters realistic but it felt like something was missing and the story rushed.
I felt no connection to the way the dreams played out and the characters almost became juvenile as the book went on.

It wasn't a bad read and I would definately recomend it to anyone else but I don't think it was for me.

I did love the story and plot and the way it played out.....original, beautiful and emotional!

This has got to be the best ugly cry book I have read in quite awhile!

Bayleigh and Tyler have that forever kind of love that you only find once in a lifetime, but tragedy strikes and something bad happens to Bayleigh and she pushes Tyler away breaking both their hearts.

How much heartaches can one couple take before enough is enough??

This book had me sobbing from start to finish and although I cried (like a baby I may add) I absolutely loved every minute of this book.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

One of the main topics on this book is a horrible act. It happens daily but it never gets easy to hear news like this. So I always admire authors who have the guts to publish books with this topic.

I know it must be devastating to go thru something like that but I must say I hated her attitude. I love strong kick ass female leads and this MFC lacked in that department. She dropped her Boyfriend and runned away. Why do I hate this attitude becau

Such an emotional read. What would you do if you were in love with two different guys? How do you choose between the two? How do you know which one is the one? These are the questions I asked myself while reading Bayleigh, Tyler and Ryan's story. Bayleigh is struggling with a tragedy from her past and has let Tyler go, so he can move on and not be held back by her grief. Ryan comes back to town and helps Bayleigh breath again. Which will she ch

This is my first book from S. Moose. While I did enjoy it, I also felt it was a little wonky. The storyline is creative, but it's not one that I care for. Bayleigh is in love with Tyler and vice versa. He has to go to California for three weeks and she stays in Rochester, NY. Meanwhile his twin brother, Ryan, comes back to town after no contact for two years with supposedly no one, except maybe his mom.

Ryan left town shortly after Bayleigh has a traumatic experience. Shortly after re

I was up until 3 am to finish reading this. Once I started I couldn't put it down. This is an emotional roller coaster of a read for sure, and I'll be honest it takes a turn halfway through that is unexpected and the end is a tear jerker. But I absolutely loved this and couldn't put it down, I highly recommend Offbeat and cannot wait for book two to see where Bayleigh ends up.

I'm divided between really likening this book and not caring for it. To be clear, the writing is good, so my three stars are not based on that. Writing style wise, it's a 4-4 1/2 stars. The characters? Ugh. I cannot stand Bayleigh. She is selfish and self centered. Look, I know she went through a traumatic rape. My heart went out to her. But there really is no excuse for her treatment of Tyler. I felt Tyler got the biggest shaft from everyone in this book.

And then Bayleigh's relationship

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review over on my blog (Pretty Little Book Blog)

This was a book that you will want to tell everyone about! It's powerful in a way that only a select few books can claim to be. From the prologue (that by the way broke my heart into a million pieces) it does not let up on the feelings factor.

Learning how to live again after a brutal act is a difficult thing because the person that you were before is gone, life is forever changed. Now that's

Holy Cow!! This love triangle was completely unexpected and I'm having a hard time with how to write this without giving everything away. What an amazing start to this new series! S. Moose has written a book that is impossible to put down because you just have to know how it ends. However, it ends in one mother of a cliffhanger.

Bayleigh is trying to recover from a horrific event and pushes everyone away, including her soul mate Tyler. She doesn't know how to cope and she's tired of everyone baby

I am not sure what to think.. I am in some kind of limbo lol..but I am so very MAD..
I felt a whole lot in this book and I even changed my mind on the characters a good few times.
I get where Bay is coming from..I really do..But sometimes I was getting frustrated with that brings me to Ty..oh no I won't forgive what he did and how he behaved..not for one sec..but at other times I get his frustration. I loved him for most of the book..but towards the end I wanted to physically hurt him.

I really liked this book. This author is one of my absolutely favorites in the indie world. Not only does she write amazing stories but she is also an incredible person. Her books have a way of pulling you in and not letting you go until the last word. They also linger with you long after you have finished reading. I became a huge fan of her from her first series and the growing she has done in her writing is absolutely phenomenal. I promise this is an author that you want to take a chan

I can't begin to tell you all how utterly amazing this book is. I a totally overwhelmed with the emotions this book brought out of me. I have laughed, screamed and cried at different times in the book, but throughout all of it I had what we like to call 'the feels'! This book is incredibly unique in my opinion because the wonderfully talented S.Moose focusses not on events but on the feelings and emotions of these events, this is quite special.

I had to put this book down so many times as I couldn't see through the tears to read it. Runny nose and all. I so was not a pretty sight.

Bayliegh had an awful beginning in her young life. Something so truly horrible, that it's easy to understand why she ends up pushing everyone away. Including the love of her life, childhood sweetheart, Taylor. She writes him a letter telling him to forget her. He writes one back, in voice-mail, saying no way, he loves her and will fight for her.

Everything in Bay's life changes in a moment of terror. My heart just broke for her. Tyler stood by her loving her through it, but she made the decision to let him go as she didn't want to hold him back. I loved that he never gave up on her even when she pushed him away. They make the choice to try again when he leaves town for work. Then his brother Ryan comes back into her life and makes her feel things that she wasn't expecting, but he has a secret of his own.

Love is messy

The concept of being in love with two people at the same time was always a difficult concept for me to handle. I hated love triangles until I read a book that explain it as soul mates and love. If I hadn't read that series before this book, I would be even more angry than I am now.

Bayleigh has been through a lot and can't seem to get her head above water. Tyler has loved her through it all and does everything he can to try and make it better.

Bay and Tyler were in love. She loves him

Something terrible happened to Bayleigh some time ago and she has still not recovered from it. She pushed away everyone, stayed at home all the time, and even broke up with her long-time boyfriend, Tyler Scott. He’s not ready to let her go, and will do anything to help her, but sometimes, it’s just really hard. He’s waiting for her, always will, but has to leave for a while for work in California.

Ryan Scott left years ago when he felt responsible for the tragedy that struck the woman he loves,

I met this author and model at Naughty Nashville and they are just awesome!!

Onto the book......

Where do i even start?! I loved this book and the characters in it. But.....I was starting to get frustrated with Bay.. ALOT!!! I loved Ryans character and Ty's. I know it must have been hard for all of them but i don't know if i could forgive Tyler so easily. I think he should have been there the whole time! It's going to be hard to wait for the next book!

Wow! Amazing

This was my first book by this author and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

This book was an emotional roller coaster ride but I loved every minute of it. Two brothers who love the same girl and one girl who loves them both equally but differently.

There are a lot of tough parts to this book but it was beautifully written even though the subject matter was so difficult.

Glad I found S Moose.

Words cannot describe my feelings after reading Offbeat but I'll try. Torn, heartbroken, hopeful, sad, mad...those are a few words to help put my feelings into words. Don't get me wrong, I loved it and cannot wait for Even Rhythm. I can't just wait for it...I'm dying for it!!

Twin brothers, Tyler and Ryan are both in love with Bayleigh. Because of past events Bayleigh pushes one away while she pulls the other closer. Bayleigh believes there are two kinds of love, the forever kind and the always kind.
The only thing that I didn’t like about this book is the cliffhanger…but I knew it was there and as soon as I finish writing this review, you can bet that I will be reading the next book. S. Moose has a style with her writing that I really love. She also ripped my heart o

The storyline is wonderful! A forever love and an always love, what a beautiful outlook on relationships. Tyler/Bayleigh/Ryan are beautiful. I loved the characters.

I had an issue with editing mistakes and lack of consistency throughout the story. It felt incoherent at times, some transitions were missing. Details within a scene were not consistent.
