This was an intense story that moves quickly beginning with the first chapter. You know something big is coming with the flashbacks woven into the storyline. And it is big!! This had a unique twist and well worth the read.

Every now and then, I read a book that sucks me in and doesn't allow me to put it down. Not just because the characters are dynamic and the plotline is interesting and gripping but because of the feel of the book.  When a writer can make you feel their character's anxiety, fear, hope, when they can make the story play out like a movie in your head then you know you have a great book in your hands.  Amber Sky is that type of book.

This book has an emotionally haunting feel.
It sucked me in and I felt it the whole time I was reading it and even after I was finished.

It goes between present day and past.
A couple struggling and a woman lost with a stranger that helps her after an accident.

Trust issues are a theme explored in so many different ways. Blame and forgiveness are central to the plot.
Memory, a very important aspect to the story as well.

I read it in one sitting. I had to know how it was going to end and what else t

There's really nothing I can say that can prepare you for Cassidy and Marc's story. I have been reading Cassia for 5 years and she continues to evolve, and stretch herself as an author which also challenges us as readers.

Amber Sky BLEW. MY. DAMN. mind!! The parallels, the mystery, all the emotions and rawness. I had no idea what I was in store for and when I tell you I was completely engrossed and utterly SHOOK, believe me!

This is the kind of complex, captivating story that needs to be CONSUMED

This was okay and and also entirely different than what I thought I was going to be reading. This was more of a mystery mixed with some light romance? Closer to second chance romance (view spoiler). Despite what it looks like, this story doesn't contain cheating and the mystery aspect of the plot is fairly easy to guess. The writing was okay but the plot ...more

The start of the story was a bit scary for me. The description and the location was eerie and it made me pause thinking "Is this a zombie romance story?" cause it felt like it was. LOL The first part was kinda scary ya know but as I go through it, it all made sense. It was a bit different (the storytelling) than Cassia's previous books. This has a mystery in it. You will question most scenes, at least I did. What I like most about it is that as a reader I felt like I was i

Amber Sky is a standalone filled with mystery, twists, turns, heartache, suspense and romance. I want to say so much but I don't want any spoilers in my review. I would suggest you take a chance, go in blind. You will only have one time to enjoy the story that way! Amber Sky is so unique and interesting. You will try to piece it all together and be amazed how everything ties together in the end.

A huge fan of this author, after a few chapters I wasn't quite sure where Cassia Leo was taking me. Marc & Cassidy, married for eight years have endured countless disappointments trying to have a child. Initially, I thought this might be a story about infidelity, boy was I wrong. After a car accident on a rural road, Cassidy is found by a quiet reclusive man who takes her in & cares for her. And he seems a little eerie at first. Moving from past to present this story grabs you from the first cha ...more

Amber Sky is a surprising and heartbreaking journey. Cassia Leo will keep you guessing as she weaves a story of heartbreak, loss, hope, and love. There are so many different and intriguing elements to this story that was unexpected, but in a really good way. I consumed Amber Sky in one sitting just to see how all the pieces came together in a great ending.

My question to Cassia. Cassia, Did you also cry while writing this beautiful story? Somehow I can feel that this book holds special place in your heart. Beautifully written. So much love for this book.

This book offers so much, way much more than the blurb could offer you.
The story is outstanding and the characters are endearing.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book overall.
I like the angle with what happenned to Shine (Cassidy) told in past and present especially the part about her memory los

Amber Sky by Cassia Leo was a great 5 star read.
This book was amazing, once I started I didn’t want to put it down. I had to see where it was going.

Cassidy ends up in an accident when the electrical system in her car goes black. She recalls being lifted by someone and wakes up at Walker’s home. She can’t recall why she was on the road and where she was going. There is something about Walker that makes her feel safe, but why? We jump from past to present as Cassidy recalls her relationship with

Cassia Leo continues to surprise readers with her intelligent writing, her captivating stories, and her relatable characters.

I was speechless after finishing Amber Sky. This story takes you on the journey of a woman trying to find happiness in her marriage. She finds herself lost after an accident and then found by a stranger. This is where everything starts, as she begins to question her sanity.

There is so much emotion, so many issues with trust, and love that shows in different ways. You wil

Another incredible story by Cassia Leo. Amber Sky is a beautifully woven story about love, heartbreak and loss. From the very first page I knew this story was going to be different, that Cassia would weave her magical word wand and create a story like no other, and boy was I correct!
Cassidy and Marc meet in college and loved each other hard. That love would have to carry them through some incredibly hard times. Their story touched so close to my heart. I could really relate to their pain and so

Amber Sky, by Cassia Leo, was absolutely phenomenal!! The story of Cassidy and Marc is so sweet...
It starts with Cassidy getting into an accident and getting saved by a man who lives a very remote, sheltered life. She has some amnesia which comes back in spurts while she recovers. The story flips back and forth over the last year leading up to the accident, and covers Cassidy's issues with pregnancy, her family, and Marc. I loved Marc's character so much, and I felt so much sympathy for him.

I love everything that Cassia Leo writes. Amber Sky is a beautifully written story full of love, loss, and forgiveness. This has become one of my top favorite Cassia books.

This book flips back and forth between the past and present but is very easy to keep up with. The love that Cassidy and Marc share is heartbreakingly beautiful. They are meant to be together but secrets that they keep start to push them apart. After tragedy strikes they quickly learn that their deep connection can get them thr

So much pain and loss on these pages. Marc and Cassidy both holding secrets and knowing the other has them. Both afraid to tell and to know. The loss, the tragedy gut wrenching. Hearts entwined even without the words, looks and touches. The heart feels, the mind knows.

Walker confused me a bit but it became apparent with a revelation as I read on. The turning point was quite unexpected and jarring but brought the story to the most important, perfect place.

Life is beautiful and not to be wasted.

In my opinion if felt like Cassia Leo wrote Amber Sky from something very personal experiences. In my opinion Cassia Leo did a great job of bringing this story to life. Amber Sky does have flashbacks which I hate they usually slow the flow of the story. In my opinion Cassia Leo did a good job of overcoming this obstacle, I thought the story flowed. Once I knew who all the characters were I figured out what was going to happen, I was okay with that. I figured it out pretty early in the story. I a ...more

I am speechless right now after reading the hauntingly beautiful story. Amber Sky was not at all what I was expecting. Cassia Leo took us on a journey you have to experience for yourself. It is heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time.

I have a major book hangover now and cannot stop thinking about Amber Sky. Trust me when I say you want to read this book. You will be pulled in from page one.

The book starts off with a woman traveling down the middle of nowhere with no cell service and a dying navigation system. Something terrible happens, the whole electrical system goes out and she veers off road and wrecks. A mystery man saves her from the wreckage and brings her back to his place as they are currently over 100 miles from town. Could Shadow be someone she knows?

Wow, what an emotional story that had me hooked from the beginning. I have read all of Cassia's books and I loved them all, but Cassidy and Marc's story is one of my favorites. The story starts off with Cassidy driving on a road in the middle of nowhere and gets into an accident, she is saved by a stranger named Walker. She has some injuries with memory loss but she starts to remember bits and pieces as the days go on, it goes between past and present so you will understand how it lead up to the ...more

If there is one book to pick up this year, then I urge you to read this one.

This book was just emotional from start to finish, highlighting issues that touch many in this world. The language used in the book, the writing, all came together to bring a book that will stick with me for many years.

The book will chew you up, spit you back out and take you on a journey that you think you have it all worked out. When in fact the story takes an amazing turn that even I didn't see coming.
