Life has a funny way of getting us to where we ultimately belong. Even if that isn’t what we had pictured for ourselves.

Talon had it all, or so he thought. A nice home, a great career, a wife whom he loved more than life itself. For most, it takes a lifetime to achieve your dreams, but for some, those dreams are achieved early with determination and hard work. That was Tal

Overall Opinion: This was an ok read. Even though there was some major drama with Talon's ex, I felt like their relationship was too easy and I didn't feel the romantic connection. So I would put this down as a pretty easy and fluffy read read. (Fluffy because I ended up skimming some parts because they just felt too cheesy).

Storyline: This is Kimberlyn and Talon's story. Talon was hit by a drunk driver and lost part of his leg and was full of scars (even on his face). He is abandoned b

"I grab me a cup of coffee when it's finished and head out to the patio to watch the sun finish rising. There is something about a sunrise that gives me some form of hope for the day ahead. Its colors are amazing with different shades of orange, gold, and a little red. Maybe my life is like the sunrise now. It's different each day but the same dreams I had before my accident are still present in my mind. Like maybe they are still possible. But I always know that at some point, the sun will set t ...more

You know that feeling when you read a truly amazing book from a brand new author? It doesn't happen often but that's where I'm at right now. I'm absolutely in love with this story and the characters. Talon is a story of love, loss, grief, fear, pain, strength, acceptance, healing and hope.

Talon once had a great job, a home, wife and was trying to have a child when tragedy struck and he lost everything. He's basically given up on a normal life. He works from home now and avoids going out in publi

Terrific Debut Novel
This is a beautiful story. It is one of those books that draw you in and keeps you turning pages into the wee hours. I could not put it down. Talon is that guy. The guy who has it all. Dream job, his own law firm, beautiful wife, beautiful house, great looking himself, and a bright future. Then in one fell swoop in the form of a crazy accident, poor Talon's life changes. Besides his body being broken and forever altered, his wife leaves him. He is not only a broken man physic

This has to be one of the best book I have read. It was written beautifully, and the storyline was amazing. The author did a fantastic job pulling me in, I was not able to put the book down. Talon, oh wow what a fantastic man. My heart broke for him, he had so much going on and all I wanted to do is hug him. Kimberlyn she was my favorite charater though. She to had to deal with so much. I will not post spoilers because I don't want to give this story away because this book is a must read. There ...more

Great Debut Book!

This story was one of heartache and learning to live again. It was a great debut book. Talon and Kimberlyn's story was one of highs and lows. The friendship they developed helped to start the relationship into more. The twists and turns they had to overcome added to the story. Great job!

Loved this book! These characters are complex and the storyline will have you hooked. The author grabs your attention and never lets it waver. I was flipping the pages to get to the end. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed Talon. The plot moves along nicely and all of the characters are well developed, their motivations and personalities clear. It kept me guessing in parts. It's a pretty quick, enjoyable read that wraps you up and keeps the pages turning. It did have a few issues, but I liked it nonetheless.

This is one of those that I loved the plot, but the writing could use a bit of work. There were quite a few spots where I felt that the wording was clunky and awkward to a point of distraction

Talon thought he had the perfect life. A job he loved, a wife he treasured and the hopes of starting a family. Until an accident took it all away from him. Losing part of his leg and being scarred, he felt broken and lost. His wife barely stuck around for him to come home from the hospital. Two years later he still feels broken. Staying in the house, rarely leaving the house. He never thought he would get a second chance at love. Kimberlyn was excited, she finally bought the house she had been s ...more

I loved this book from the opening scene to the final sentence!!! Shevawn Michelle has given her readers an amazing story with her debut - Talon. I could not help but fall in love with not only Talon, but with the cute and spunky Kimberlyn. The characters are well written and well developed characters that you could see as your best friend, neighbor, co-worker or anyone else in your life.

The pain that Talon goes through with his accident and devastating loss of his first marriage is so real. I f

Really enjoyed this debut novel by Shevawn Michelle! This book for me was pretty close to the perfect combination of angst and love. You pretty much have every emotion possible in this book. This book is raw and refreshing and I definitely enjoyed the story line! It was great to see Talon emerge so to speak after meeting Kimberlyn. He became this strong male that protected what was his and I loved that. I also really loved that Kimberlyn stood her ground but was also kind and compassionate! Toge ...more

Damn you Shevawn Michelle!!

I am just kidding, but seriously?! Talon is a successful attorney, and has everything he has ever wanted. His house, his beautiful wife, and trying to start a family. Until an unfortunate event takes it away and turns his life upside down. While attempting to rebuild his life he is hit by curve ball after hard thing.

I loved everything about this. It is a 'classy romance' without the smut (even though I love those too, but a change was nice) and kept you wanting to rea

was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Once I received this book and started reading I couldn't put it down. I was hooked from the first page. Couldn't believe this was debut novel it was well written,flowed very well and kept me engaged thru the whole book.
You have heartbreak and humor both from Talon who was dealt a s****y hand in life and Kimberlyn a sweet nurse. What I loved the most is that Talon and Kimberlyn didn't jump right into a relationship they had a friendship first so

I was given a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Life sometimes is good and then sometimes life throw you curve balls. Talon is a good man who seemingly has it all and then suddenly a tragedy takes it all away. Nothing is perfect anymore. The people he thought he knew aren't who they thought they were. His life seems to be out of control until the beautiful nurse moves in next door. Your saving grace come from place you least expect it. I really enjoyed this book and I look forw

I won this book in a giveaway and I'm very glad I got the chance to read it. Its not my normal paranormal genre that I read but I still enjoyed this book. This is a romance story where Talon learns to live again after he has a brutal accident. He finds Kimberlyn who slowly helps him face his fears and put his life back together. And of course just as soon as things are going good... you have to throw the bomb into the mix to make this a really juicy story.. called.. the Jealous nutso Ex!!!.. we' ...more

I enjoyed this short sweet book of Talon and Kimberlyn. Fate collided them and it was interesting to watch it all unfold.

You will love these characters. They are strong, determined and amazing together despite the drama and pain that are sent their way.

Believe me, you will enjoy this read and will want a man like Talon all for yourselves!

This is a wonderfully written debut and I would recommend it to my friends and family!
