I was Gifted a copy for an honest opinion. I Loved it!!

Amazingly written book by two great and talented Authors. I enjoyed it so much, well written and of course,,,,, yes a cliffhanger! but well worth it. I love their characters Sklar and Ryder.
Ryder being my most favorite. These two authors know how to put the swoon in swooness, you can't help but fall in love with the story as much as the character's, I recommend this book to everyone and all.
I can't to see what the out come will be for these

I have read books by Lacey Weatherford before and loved them. I haven't read anything by Belinda Boring so I wasn't sure what to expect from a book they co-authored. I found myself drawn completely into the story. I loved the romance and the story of how these two very different people met. The ending wasn't what I expected but it definitely made me want to read book 2 and find out how they overcome their obstacles.

“First kisses rock."

“Our first kiss. It would be incredible; the stuff dreams were made of.”

“Something was building between Ryder and me—something life changing. I just needed to be brave and embrace it in all its wonderful, complicated glory”

My Review~~
I'm in cover love with this book! Gorgeous and handsome in one awesome package. Lacey Weatherford and Belinda Boring are amazing authors when they write by themselves, but put them together and they blew all my expectations. The writing is wonderful and I just can't ask for a
I was impressed with the seamless writing from these two great writers, it's not easily done. Great romance, sexy scenes, heart wrenching moments and the cliff-hangar ending that Belinda Boring is famous for. You'll need a few tissues and you'll have to hold onto the angst because Shattered, book 2 in The Story of Us, isn't out until an unknown date in 2015.

Skylar is a passionate and artistic soul. She moves to a new town to attend the art school of her choice and before she's even moved in

I got the amazing opportunity to be a ARC for this book in return for a honest review.

Skylar is a artist who moved to a new town, for the sole reason of going to a prestigious art school.

Ryder is not of this world living in a world of humans.

When writing a review I don't like to tell to much about the story itself I would rather express how the book made me feel....

First off let me state that when I first started reading this I mentally prepared myself not to be as satisfied by this

When I had the chance to read a ARC of this book I jumped at the chance it's written by two of my fave authors so I just new it would be a amazing!!!

Skylar has a passion for art, she moved across the country to go to her dream art college & ended up with more than she could have ever wished for, she is young & has never been in love, until now!!!

Ryder is a wanderer, he has never settled in one place for long & has never wanted to until he meets skylar, she is everything that he has always hoped

What can I say…except…wow, just WOW! I would give it 20 stars if I could!

Each of these authors do a great job on their own, that being said, the bar just got pushed through the roof!
They have created their very own “Fantasy-Paranormal Genre.” The story and characters are a well-blended bit of both. I read Sci-Fi/Fantasy, but am picky about it as it seems to me that some of it (OK, a lot of it) is just too far into (or out of) left field.

Let me preface this comment by saying…I am not a prude… but

Super HOT and Swoony!!!
I was pretty sure that with Belinda and Lacey writing together that only good things would happen, and I was right. Unlike some other books I have read with multiple authors, I could not tell when one writer went to the other, it blended so seamlessly.
The story of Skylar Blue and Ryder is intense and swoony!
Skylar has moved to a new town to go to school, she doesn't know anyone and her roommate didn't make a very good first impression. When she literally bumps in to Ryde

I am a avid Belinda Boreing reader so when I received this book as an arc I was sceptic only because I am so used to my Mystic Wolves series. One thing that Belinda is great for her books not only by helping you visualize the scene of where the book takes place, but that you also feel that the characters are people you have spent your whole life with.these were obviously brand new characters that we had to get that connection with and it took no time at all. I am not as familiar with Lacey, but ...more

This is a story written by two of my favorite Queens of Swoon Lacey & Belinda. Separately they are amazing but together they are out of this world amazing.

Ryder is my new book friend and once you meet him he will be yours also. Skylar is the girl we all love. She is sweet, smart, and sees beauty in everything. She is just a young girl starting college and looking forward to what the world has to offer. Ryder is a Wanderer, he wanders from place to place and planet to planet. He has never wanted

This is one book that I knew right from the start, was going to be an amazing one. I mean how could it not. It was written by two amazing ladies.

Right from the start Ryder captured my heart. He was so sweet and funny that I couldn't help but fall in love with him instantly. Skylar stole my heart as well. She knew just what she wanted and had no fears going after them wholeheartedly. The love that flows from these two is something that everyone wishes and hopes for, yet never finds. Their love

OMG you did not just leave me hanging like that! I am still in shock and feel like I want to scream, cry and even throw my cherished kindle. Wow that is a cliffhanger to beat all.

I am totally in love with Ryder and would go anywhere in the universe with him. What a perfect leading man. "With Just one touch, he'd branded me his, forever." I couldn't have put it better than Skylar. The intensity of their budding relationship and the heat of their physical chemistry blew me away.

I adore this book

I adore both Lacey Weatherford and Belinda Boring, so when I learned that they'd be writing this together, I wondered how they'd combine their different styles into one book. I can say that they did so seamlessly and Wanderlust did not disappoint. I couldn't put it down. I was finding every opportunity I could to keep reading. I read to escape into a different world. I read because it takes me places I'll probably never get to go. I loved going on this journey with Skylar and Ryder and I can not ...more

I received a copy of Wanderlust by Lacey Weatherford & Belinda Boring in exchange for an honest review. WOW!! EXCELLENT STORY!! WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! Is one word I can say about this book. Ryder and Skylar what can I say. Knowing Ryder is a wanderer every time I came across the word I kept singing the song The Wanderer by Dion. Lacey and Belinda did an excellent job with this story. When I found out that they wrote a book together I couldn't wait to read it. I was really excited that I got an A ...more

Wow Lacey and Belinda did a wonderful job on this book. I really loved ryder and skylar they work so good together and I really loved the names also. The only thing I wasn't crazy about is they kinda feel in love a little to fast for me but other then that I loved it and it was the perfect love but omg what a cliffy. I was expecting it because Belinda is queen of the cliffys but I didn't expect it from Lacey. I would also lve to know who wrote what. This story was so we'll write that I could not ...more

A true love story

I do not like cliff hangers. But this book was so good I'll forgive you this once. This story is so different from others I've read I couldn't put it down. Such honest open love they shared. It touched my heart how pure and honest they treated each other, even though he couldn't tell her right off who he really was. I can only hope the next book has a happier ending and not leave us hitting a pillow screaming that it can't be left like this. That being said, I can't wait for the

Belinda Boring and Lacey Weatherford have written an amazing book. What a great love story. I so can not wait for the next book in this series to come out. Ryder and Skyar have so many obstacles to face in their relationship. I am not certain how I myself would handle everything Skylar must face. To find out that the guy you are in love with is an offspring of angels and to learn all the hard choices you must make. It could be to much for anyone to face.

Wonderlust is a brilliant story of love and discovery that defies space and time. Ryder and Skylar as so cute together. At first I didn't like Ryder but he grew on me. By the end I was in love with him just like Skylar. This should be called the Ryder effect. The book is also heartbreaking and my heart almost shattered like Skylar's in the end. Cannot wait for book 2! Well done Lacey and Belinda!

Okay this book me took me by surprise. at first I thought it was going to be a beautiful sweet story of intergalactic love which it was it was happy and cute and charming and Ryder seemed like the perfect man and then BAM the ending what the hell I'm not even sure how to process everything that happened it went from happy too horrible in a matter of 10 15 pages I wish it wasn't so rushed towards the end but I understand cliffhangers are the way to get people to come back but wow

I'm going to be honest with you. At first I thought it would be another human and alien with angel twist to it. This book had me addicted to it. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. The story of love between Skylar and Ryder is epic. My heart breaks. What else can I say..... YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK!! I can't wait for another book or more of the story. Great writing Belinda and Lacey.
