We met Sage in book 1 of this series, she has a 4 year old daughter who is a result of a one night stand with her brothers best friend.

When Conall returns to Bitterroot, he is shocked to learn of his daughters existence.

Sage is a tough cookie, she has bought up Mattie on her own but when it comes to men she has trust issues and especially with the man who let her down all those years ago.

I loved Conall, he was pure Alpha with a gentle side and pretty hot to boot. When he realis

This is the second time posting my review for this. It seems to have disappeared from my self. I am not just reposting the review.

I hate to say it but I think I enjoyed this one more then the first. I have loved each book Sibylla has put out so far. She is a author when looking for a book I check out to see if they have any new releases. I am looking for "Post Break Up Sex" which is out next. I reccomend you give her read.

Arc Kindly provided for honest review but I also own copies of her books

I know , I know I am soooo late on this review.

First off, Always Conall is part of the Bitterroot series but you would be fine reading AC on its own.

Always Conall has a great story line and the two main characters Conall and Sage are very likable and empathetic. You will find yourself rooting for both of them. Sage grew up loving Conall and after a tragedy that impacts both their lives Conall leaves and breaks Sage's heart. Fast forward a few years and what do you know, guess who

ALWAYS CONALL by Sibylla Matilde has to be my favorite book by her to date. Less than 24 hours and I had devoured the book – which is really, really fast for me. For comparison: I usually accomplish 1-2 books a week max. It’s something about Sibylla’s books that always captures me and keeps me hooked from the very beginning.

The story is so amazingly sweet and the characters loveable. We meet Sage first in book #1 of the Bitterroot series where she quickly becomes Brynn’s best fri

ANOTHER fantastic book written by Sibylla Matilde! And, I must say, she picks the coolest names for her guy characters - Ronin, Rhys, Kian and now Conall! So unique, but ultimately intriguing...

Sibylla Matilde hits it out of the ballpark again with another emotionally-charged novel that does not disappoint. Sage has loved Conall like forever. He’s her older brother’s best friend, and he is hot! She’s always followed the two around from the

This is Sibylla’s fourth book and it’s been lovely watching her grow, not just as a writer but in her confidence in her abilities. We have now progressed to ‘I’m thinking it doesn’t suck’ from ‘I hope it doesn’t suck.’ Well Siby, I can assure you, the book doesn’t suck, at all! It’s a wonderful bittersweet love story.

Always Conall is book 2 in the Bitterroot series, although it can be read as a standalone. Saying that, when characters do flow in from another book, I always

Always Conall is easily one of the best books I have read this year. I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved this read or how much it mad me laugh and cry. Always Conall is an absolutely fantastic read full of humor and emotion. This book and its characters will capture your heart and not let go.

Sage has always loved Conall, her brothers best friend. But a myriad of bad circumstances upend Sage’s life and throw her into a tailspin. But then Conall, the man that she has always loved leaves her

"Always Conall " is the second book in the bitterroot series and does not dissapoint , five huge stars!

Sage and Conall are fantastic together but by far my runaway favorite is little Mattie, Sage 's four year old daughter, Mattie may be my favorite little scene stealer but the storyline is great.

The book starts with Sage five years earlier surrendering her virginity to the boy h has loved for as long as she can remember and begging him to s

This book just blew me away!

You think Kian's the one?? It's time to meet Conall and think again!

I should start by saying I was in a total book rut before reading this, even tho I've enjoyed the last 2 books I've read I haven't finished either yet. I just couldn't get in the right head space, but Conall just dragged me straight out and ensured I devoured him in a single sitting!

Everything about this book shouts out to me, best friends and old lovers that are just meant to be, trying to find the

Ok so I found a new favorite author! After Because of Kian, I knew I just HAD to continue the series with Always Conall and I was so incredibly satisfied with Sage and Conall! WOW! Seriously a beautiful story, a fascinating second chance, and a sweet and steamy connection between these two.

The way Conall is with Mattie from the first moment he sees her is endearing and what happens after weaves together to create a love story with all the flaws and heartache but one that will leave you with a fe

Erin's Review
After reading the first chapter, I wasn't quite sure Conall was going to be on my ever expanding book boyfriend list. Then I kept reading.
What appeared to be a total jerk, was a man who didn't think he was good enough. He was a man who ran from his problems so he wouldn't burden anyone else.
Sage is an amazingly strong young woman. Single mom, put herself through school, has to stay strong for her daughter. If only Conall knew.....

So, I just finished my ARC.
I can't even begin to explain how much I loved this book. The situations, the emotions, everything that happened was just so believable. A lot of times in books, situations or emotions come about that just don't seem like they'd really happen in real life, only a fairytale. But with this book, the timeline of this story playing out is just awesome. It was all set in such a believable timeline, as no situation was forced. All the emotions that seemed appropriate for tho

I loved this book! I was so excited to receive an Advanced Reader Copy from the author, to which I promptly sat down and completely devoured this story. We first met Sage and Mattie in Because of Kian, and if you are anything like me fell just a little in love with them. Mattie and her Ponies are every bit as adorable as ever, but Sage really shined. We learned about her broken heart and her lost love, but in Conall's coming home we really see all she had gone through and just how strong

This book is a hot read, but also a very emotional read.

From the very start we are left puzzled due to Conall's behaviour towards Sage when she particularly needs a friend.

We are then left wondering what the hell happened as he does something she didn't think he would ever do.

What he finds when he returns shocks him to the core, and leaves him reeling. Does he have the chance to make amends for his past mistakes? Does Sage have it in her to forgive his actions and move forward with her life? And

I thought Sib's last book was my favourite - then I read Always Conall ..... We first met Sage & Mattie in Because of Kian, and this story is as much about Mattie as it is Sage & Conall (infact I think Mattie stole the show!!)

I dont want to give the game away but basically 5 years after her world is turned upside down Sage is just starting to get her life in gear until one day Conall appears back in Bitteroot and she knows life for her & Mattie will never be the same again.

I loved Conall he really stepped up when he needed to and Sage was a lovely strong woman I loved them together it was perfect!!!!

Sibylla Matilde has outdone herself this time. Always Conall is her best novel yet.

In the second installment of her Bitterroot series, we are given Brynn and Kian's friend, Sage Nichols' story. While learning about what happened to her and Conall and their fight for love, you won't be able to stop yourself from falling in love with their Five year old, Chatty Cathy, My Little Pony loving Mattie. She stole my heart and I'm sure she will yours too.

I received a copy from the author in return for an honest review.

Loved. This. Book.

One thing that I'm always amazed about by Sibylla's books is how real they are. Not some contrived, far fetched plot, etc. No, her books reflect real life situations and emotions. And written so well too.

Conall + Sage + Mattie = awesome family

Conall was here.

I wanted to cry. I wanted to hide. I wanted to drink. I wanted to... wrap my arms around him and never let go. My pulse felt erratic, and my thoughts jumbled around in my brain. I felt like a hyperactive, bipolar schizophrenic on crack.

where shall I even start. Another 5 star read from Sibylla Matilde. She is one of those authors that I will read everything she puts out. Because of Kian (bitterroot #1) is the first book in the Bitterroot Series. I didn't get to read Because of Kian right away, I know, I know **Hangs Head in Shame**. But anyways, I read it and LOVED it. Sad actually I didn't read it sooner. ok So I'll wait a second so you can go one click.. And while you’re there you might as well one click Always Conall also. ...more

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first book that I ever read by this author blew me away...Because of Kian was a complicated and kinky and yet beautifully tender love story of trust, healing and forgiveness. It seems to me that Sibylla Matilde has a gift for writing these very real-life kind of stories and most women can relate to her female characters.

“I wanted to forget you, too,” Sage said morosely. “Even now, I still do. With you right here in front of me. Even after last night. It still hurts to think about when you left. How it felt to be so alone. How much I don’t want to care about you anymore.” 1 likes
