5 Swoony and Sexy Stars!

When I first learned that this was a book set in the 60's, I wasn't sure if I would be all that into it. I was so very wrong. William and Margaret's story drew me in from the first sentence and refused to let me go.

I love me a firm alpha male and William was everything I love in a book boyfriend. Funny, tough, sexy as hell and has a soft spot for a certain special girl who refuses to take his crap. Margaret was an unlikely but somehow perfect fit for William. I loved thei

I was given this arc for an honest review by author, and I'm very excited to leave my review.

William and Margaret have a beautiful story that will have you glued to your seat in anticipation of what happens next.

William is known as the wild child of their small community, known for his renegade ways. Rich boy, whose family has a reputation for the way they cam into their money. He has a reputation as a lady's man, never holding on to one longer than he wears a pair of socks before moving on to

this is one of those books that will pull at your heart strings. Margaret is a good girl raised in a strict household and takes care of everyone. William is that bad boy that everyone knows about and parents warn their daughters about. these two are a match made in heaven and it is right up there with in my opinion, Nicholas Sparks. don't let the time period fool you though, these two deal with the same tragedies, war, love and crazy ex lovers that any young adult today deal with. this is one st ...more

description

“Her soft hands hugged my face, tilting me up to her. It was too dark to see any emotion in her eyes, and when I hesitated, Margaret took the reins, leaning her body into mine, kissing me.”

5 emotionally beautiful stars!! This book will make you feel every emotion imaginable. It’s beautifully written and so well thought out!

It’s the summer of 1969 and poor Margaret is watching her mother die, while being sheltered in a religious house and constantly told she can’t have any fun. William lives a pr

This story describes the tale of two highly unlikely individuals, and their beautifully written story encompassing a lifetime of what is discovered to be a true and lasting love. The author skillfully reveals the inner thoughts of the couple, switching back and forth between their points of view, which lends depth and detail to the story. I personally loved the progression of the relationship that at times, seemed destined to fail, especially with some unexpected turn of events that actually cau ...more

William is a bad boy from a family with a reputation that goes back to the days of bootlegging during prohibition. His family went legit, but the reputation stuck.

Margaret is a good girl that obeys her father and goes to church every Sunday. She is expected to do the right thing and that is what she does. She has the reputation for being a cold fish.

It all starts with a car. When William is gifted a beautiful 1969 Shelby Mustang GT500 from his father for his hard work, He decides to run it throu

This is the prequel for the Steele Standing Series. I need to mention that the cover is so different than what I thought the book would be. The story is actually set in 1969 and it tells the story of Margaret Wilson and William Steele. They live in a small town and the Steele family is well known in town…and not in a good way. When William sets his sights on Margaret, will she trust him or will his bad boy ways prevents her from seeing the real guy hiding underneath?

“Maybe that was the problem.

When I first started Renegade, I wasn't sure what to expect. Which is a good thing. This book took me by surprised at how much I was sucked into the story of summer love. William is the bad boy of the town and everyone that lives there has their minds made up about him and his family. It's all rumors, but when Margaret comes into the picture, she immediately sees more in him.
Margaret is the sweet and innocent girl that always goes by the rules. She's never done anything to upset her parents and

Margaret was the typical southern girl, who thirst for her parent approval. She was always considered the quiet young girl wanting to do the right thing, never defying her parental instructions. Her mother became ill; therefore, Margaret omit college degree to assist with the household duties.

William was the typical rich, wild, street kid, who was known for his defiance acts and a womanizer. The small town knew about his family old reputation of bootlegging when it was against the law even thou
