Leaving me a quivering puddle of goo from book one, M.E. Montgomery had me from the start for book two. True North continues the tale of Alex and Kayla as their relationship continues to blossom in spite of the obstacles from the past that have left festering wounds. Together they are stronger than apart, and Alex is a rock, a one-of-a-kind man that deals with his own past as well as Kayla’s. In a perfect world, the past remains where it belongs, but for this couple, the ghosts that belong burie ...more

I didn't think it would be possible, but this was even better than the first book in the series. I never want the story to end!

Praying For A HEA . . .

This was a must read after the first book in this Polaris series, So DO NOT read this novel with out reading the first book. I loved the first novel and this was a great sequel, but this went into more suspense-mystery romance than just romance. It was still a great read but a reader will find the direction of the novel has gone from deep emotional healing to physical healing and mystery/crime solving.

On the cusp of a HEA, Alex gets a heartbreaking call saying Mikalya wa

Picking up where I left off... And where the author left off.... HOLY TWISTS ANS TURNS AND OMG I LOVE THIS BOOK AND CANT WAIT TO REREAD BECAUSE IT WAS JUST THAT DAMN GOOD! The author did it again.... Pulled me in and refused to let me go. But I'm not complaining! I was all too happy to have read this book. It's a bit darker than the first book but oh so well written. I literally ate it up. Alex and Kayla... They are it. But we throw some suspense into this and some serious twists and turns and y ...more

WOW! This was an emotional read with some unexpected twists! Please note, you need to read book 1 in this series first. This book picked up where book one left off, Alex, thinking he has his happy ending is dealing with the aftermath of an attempted kidnapping of Aiden and Kayla's injury. The love that Alex and Kayla share is truly inspiring and so powerful. The author does an amazing job conveying their thoughts and feelings through the words in this story. Their fight for their happily ever af ...more
5 Stars!
True North picks up right were book one-North Star leaves off. Kayla and Alex are really trying to give their relationship a go but someone is really trying to get in between them. They don't know who keeps trying to hurt them.

This is the kind of story you think you have figured out and then boom, major plot twists. This had so many twists and turns that I was on the edge of my seat. I could not stop reading it!

Wow, I loved book 1 in the series and book 2 was just as good. Picking up where the first book left off, Alex and Kayla certainly don't have it easy, someone is trying to hurt them and they have no idea who it is. They are taken on an emotional roller coaster and as a reader it feels as though I'm right there with them. The love they have for each is strong enough to survive whatever is thrown at them as long as they have each other and their family. This is a brilliant book full of twists that ...more

I absolutely loved this book. I love that the author took up from where the first one left us. I honestly didn't think I would love this one as much as I loved the first one but I did!!!!! I loved that this book was a wee bit darker than the first one and holy twists and turns they were AWESOME!!!! This was the perfect second book to this series... I hope that there is more to this series with other characters.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

If I hadn't already absolutely adored Alex, I would have after this book. He is just amazing, and I love him and Kayla together. Another super fantastic read by M.E. Again with the perfect mix of romance, drama and steaminess, plus a fabulous plot/story. Five stars. Highly recommending.

As this book begins Kayla is in the hospital after a kidnapping attempt. The story of Alex and Kayla takes off from where the first book in this series left off. I loved that book as it was a romantic suspense written so that the characters become real and the suspense and cliffhanger make you want this second book immediately. I didn't enjoy this one quite as much. I love the characters still, the suspense builds while also throwing in lots of twists and turns. There are some places where the d ...more

This is not a standalone book. You should read North Star (Polaris Series #1) first. This book picks up after the suspenseful conclusion of book one. This story was fast paced, with more depth into characters from book one. It will hold your attention, so start it when you have reading time.

Alex and Kayla are already deeply in love, and while their love for each other, and little Aiden, shines through in the story, this book turns to solving a couple mysteries and suspense with danger. I can't s

This book needs to be teamed up with Book 1 of the series (which ended in a cliffhanger). The combination is powerful, complicated, funny, heartwarming. The characters are strong, passionate, and multifaceted. I love the fact that we see these key characters in future books as well.

Amazing story

The first two stories in this series held me captive until I finished them. Couldn't step away, they were always calling me back. Loved the strong family ties and how no matter where you came from you can find love.

Oh my if you read the first book in this series you know your in for a amazing story following Kayla, Alex, Aidan and there family. From finding out what happened at the end of the first book to the very end of this one. My heart way pulled, prodded, and in tears by the end of this amazing story. You will definitely not be disappointed in the book.

North Star is a debut novel and M.E. Montgomery is a new author? I'm not sure I got that right. The way this is written, it is just, simply, honestly, beautiful.

Life isn't totally happy. Death is inevitable and causes a lot of pain for those who are left behind. However, getting over that death (very different from dealing with loss) is, in a way, helping and healing others who've been affected by that same kind of pain. This is what Mikayla and Alex share - the loss of people they love - and w

Book two starts out with Alex's side of the flashback to the bar, but then jumps forward to Kayla being taken away from him, it must have been a dream after the accident. What happened to Kayla and Aiden? When Kayla finally wakes up in the hospital, does she remember what happened? How she got there? What happens when she does remember? Who is behind the attempted kidnapping and attack? Who is this man that has been arrested for the attempt? Who hired him? Who is behind it all? Why does Ryan, Ka ...more

After reading *North Star*, I couldn't wait to read this sequel. I was not disappointed; it was even better than I expected. Truly, I wasn't expecting the level of suspense that was sprinkled throughout this story. (I'm not about to give even a tiny spoiler.) I don't usually read suspense stories, but this one sat very well with me. Of course, the romance begun in Book 1 is continued, and just as enthralling and fulfilling. Other relationships evolve.

This book picks right up where book one leaves off. So please read book 1 first, so you will get the full rundown of what’s going on.

You know when you come across a wonderful book series that is so good that you can reread it several times because it is just that good. This is definitely one of those series. M.E. Montgomery hit it out of the park with The Polairs Series.

Book 2 of the series: True North continues Alex and Kayla's tale right where North Star ended and as their relationship continues to grow Alex and Kayla find themselves falling so deeply in love and their souls so connected that nothing or no one could ever t

This book leaves off right where North Star left off. (Which I love) I was pulled into this book from the start. I couldn't stop reading it. I'm glad there were answers to the questions that were left from the 1st book in the series. This book was so well written and I felt. The way it was written you felt the real life struggles that the characters had and were relatable. Alex and Kayla each had their own characteristics that made them un

Love and patience abound in these first 2 Polaris books. Complicated characters and intertwined storylines contain a bit of everything.

The conclusion of Alex and Kayla's story did not disappoint, but I still feel that this all could have been one book instead of two. Like book one, this story did contain some scenes that felt unnecessary and did not seem to contribute to the plot (such as the camping trip) but overall the pacing felt more realistic. I did guess the villain's identity fairly early on. I also didn't love the fact that everything (with the exception of the couple that will be featured in book 3) was wrapped up wit ...more

Great story

I had this book for a long time and just now finished reading and I am kicking myself for not starting it sooner. Alex, Kayla, and Aiden are finding their way as a true family in the second part of their story. Secrets are revealed and some heartache is experienced but through it all their unwavering love for each other holds true.

Ms Montgomery had me hooked on her writing with her debut book North Star. She continues that love and adoration in the continuation of that story here. I was completely lost within this story and the characters within. My heart was stuck in my throat at times, and she kept me intrigued long after the last sentence.
