People looking at my life would think ‘wow she’s so lucky’ but I’m far from it. Five years ago my entire world changed. The older I get the more I start to think that maybe what I know about my family is all an illusion. Maybe the family business isn’t just what it looks like on the outside, but the cause for my devastation when I was sixteen.
I never thought five years la

This was an absolutely brilliant read. How would I feel if I saw my parents murdered. WOW no one knows how this would affect is, we have some idea, but, what about at a young age? There is no good age to loose your parents, and no good circumstances either, but murder???

And what if you witnessed it?

She was at home when this happened, but no one knew, and as long as no one knew, she was safe.

As time goes on and she turns 21 years old her Uncle throws a party for her and this is where she meets a

She believes that her family’s business is a front for a different type of business, and feels that that was what got her parents killed. Their murders have gone unsolved, and the police have c

Searching For Me by Kaydee Mavericks is a riveting tale of a woman who has been through much more than she would like to admit. Witnessing her parents being murdered brought a rather horrific memory to Gabriella's thoughts whenever she thinks of her happiness. She knows that there is more to the family business that what is being let on, and she swears that one day she will avenge her parents death. Until then, she has to lie low, and swear up and down that she wasn't at the scene of her parents ...more

This author is one of my absolute must read authors. Eveyone has some and while a few months ago I had never heard of her, she is now one I "Facebook stalk" just to make sure I don't miss anything she publishes. Now onto this book. Kaleb or Kale as he likes to go by is the man of any girl's dreams. I mean that, holy cow not only are you off the charts hot, but he is the protector and romantic and alpha all rolled into one. He glances at Gabriella and immediately feels an electric spark that coul ...more

A Quickie Romance with Dark Roots
This book captured my attention from the start and I read it straight through. It's a quick read, kinda dark, and mysterious. It's loaded with suspense and plot twists and turns. Gabriella saw the stuff of nightmares five years ago and the nightmares still plague her to this day. She's now twenty one, and not really sure if what she wants out if life. No one except Gabriella knows that Gabriella saw what happened and she intends to keep it that way. She wants to

I loved this, it's exacualty what I wanted a quick read with a little dark twist and a beautiful love behind it all, but no love is perfect and doesn't always fall into place at first sight.

I received this for an honest review.. I have to say that this was a pretty enjoyable read.. I really liked the characters and the story was a very good read.. This book had a bit of everything a little suspense and some nice twists and turns a nice hot romance between Gabriella and Kale. Some really awesome secondary characters who definitely need their own book. This is one of those books that when you pick it up you don't want to put it down because you really want to see where the story and ...more

A great and quick read!

Searching for Me was of family, friendship, love and deception. I loved the intrigue of what happened to Gabriella's parents and the love that began to blossom between her and Kaleb. I wasn't sure about him at first but as the story progressed he was amazing! He loved Gabriella so much and I loved the way he adored her and showed her that love in everything he did. This story started with a girl, who was lost and still grieving from the loss of her parent, but ended with h

Good read

Gabriella watched her parents die when she was 16. Now 5 years later, she is still having nightmares. At a party for her 21st birthday, she meets Kaleb Morgan. She assumed he was a player but even with that assumption after meeting him, her world is turned upside down.

This was such an amazing story. There were so many twists and turns, I honestly felt like I was on a roller coaster ride. I can't wait to read more books by this new author to me.

Amazing quick read

Loved this book it has a insta love type vibe gabby has had it pretty rough and she doesn't know if Kale is a player and can be trusted or not. Kale is amazing and doesn't give up no matter how much Gabby pushes him away I recommend this book for insta love readers with a little mystery thrown in

This was my first book from this author.....and for me, it was okay. I really thought the storyline was good and intriguing, but some of it seemed a bit rushed. I definitely will try another book from this author, but this one just didn't quite do it for me.

Good story, I found this author after reading Alexander isle of eagleland which was a disappointment but thought give it another go and glad I did.

This story flows better, great character progression through the book and suspense and drama.

You should definitely give it a go.

Crazy

This book had a crazy storyline. All the suspenseful crazy stuff happens about midway through. There was a few typos but it didn't detract from the story. I liked it.

*Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review*

One word to describe this book…meh. I found the characters to be poorly developed and un-relateable. I was so extremely annoyed with these characters that the story was difficult to finish. Gabby and Kale have sex once and talk maybe 2 times and then bam…they are in love and head-over heels about each other. What the ever loving h*ll? Where is the development of the love story because from what I read there was none. The progression was litera
