I received a courtesy copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Blindsided, by Kylie Walker is a beautifully written story that grabs you from the first page and has you turning the pages to see how the story unfolds. There is, angst, spousal/child abuse, drug use, alcohol, action, suspense, romance, heartbreak, passion, instant attraction, overwhelming emotions, and love. I loved being caught up in the characters Ms. Walker created. Her characters aren't just characters, the are peopl

Fast and definitely furious - it ripped my heart out but left me with a really content feeling in the end.

The only thing Samantha has of her biological father's, is a 1966 Mustang which she uses to escape reality…

Sam grew up with her drug and alcohol dependent mother and her abusive alcoholic stepfather. She grew up in an environment so toxic that she became hard on the outside, put up walls, didn’t trust anyone and didn’t believe that happiness existed apart from when she was behind her 66 Mu

Loving story!

The story of Sam and her brother Aaron was at first so painful with the abuse of his father but her step father and their mother was alcoholic. Then the mother died and the Sam's stepfather is put in jail for it, that leaves Aaron that is just 16 alone but for his sister Sam but she is just 19. Sam phone her real father for help,( her mother lied to her about her father not wanting her) and he takes Aaron and Sam home with him, I LOVED her father, he was so good for Aaron but he
The writing style did not work for me. Bland. I felt as if everything was told to me. I could not connect. It may work for you.

This is a beautifully written romance story by Kylie Walker. The plot captivates you from word one which is how I love my romance novels. Samantha and Aaron are step siblings , living with a drunk mother and Aaron’s physically abusive father. Sam loves to race cars, that is her dreams and her passion. Sam doesn’t know her father, he walked out on them when she was a baby after cheating on her mom ; Sam grew up thinking she was unloved and not wanted. Sam ended up meeting her dad years later and ...more
Honestly Honest Bookworm
I wasn't going to write a review but I felt like I needed to because my rating seems to be the only negative one. I was really excited to read this book, that cover is incredible and I will admit that covers often win me over to reading a book. I read a lot of step-brother romances and love females involved with cars, I was a goner...

I enjoyed the way the book started out, the plot was interesting and the heroine was pretty cool. I just could not bring myself to feel the romance betw

This was great story even with the jealously of Conrad hot and cold routine and his ex hanging off his during their race night (he said that he kept stopping her advantages gentlemanly). Sam has had a rough life since she was three when her dad Luke, cheats and divorces her mom but he always wanted to be him Sam's life until her mother took her and disappear. Her mom remarried and now she has a baby brother, Aaron. Years later Aaron is 16 Sam is 19, he's into drinking, drugs and stealing, Sam dr ...more

Another fantastic book by Kylie Walker. Exciting, suspense, abuse, angst, heartbreak, drug and alcohol use, and a lot of emotions running through this book. I love her characters in her stories, and this one was excellent. A young woman who loved racing and meets a guy who loves to race also. Only to find out they have a really close bond they never knew about. The book is a page turner, I was quite caught up in it, being someone who loves racing and has a lead foot myself. The crew all

I am so sad. I wanted to LOVE this story. I have a deep fondness for Step sibling romances, the angstier the back story the better- So reading the synopsis I was stoked.
Sigh. Maybe I am just getting too old * coughs* to read/ tolerate romances based on characters who are not mature enough to handle all the ups and downs of life and love or maybe I just didn't mesh with the characters.

Nice quick read

This is a nice quick read that features some serious topics. There is a bit of conflict with the whole stepsiblings thing, but I found it to be a very minor part of the book. No cliffhanger and a HEA (to a point). Samantha is a strong independent woman who has endured so much heartache. I'm glad she and Conrad found each other.

It was a good read, but I felt like something was missing plus there's all this backstory for the other characters that never goes anywhere

Family is in the heart

Sam has lived with her mother since her parents divorced. When her mom remarried things got worse if it weren't for her half brother she would have left years ago. When their mom died of an overdose Sam turns in her dealer ( her stepfather). In order to stay together and keep her brother out of foster care she calls her father for help. Then they all learn how to love. This book brought tears to my eyes, but hope to the heart. Loved it.

Best book I've read in forever!

Omg I think I have felt every emotion ! This book is about Conrad and Samantha but so many more to. None of them had an easy life but their better for finding each other. Conrad is the people saver, he takes care of everyone . Sam is the bad add who doesn't think she needs anyone but to take care of her little brother. Thanks to her long lost father anything is possible. Hope Aaron gets a book soneday

DNF 50%

This book had the potential to be amazing, but it fell flatter than a pancake.

There are some pretty dark situations going on in the book, but between the rushed paragraphs and writing, it didnt feel ominous or dramatic. Then Sam and Conrad meet and its BAM. No build up, horrible flow, too much detail in nonsense and not enough details in important aspects.

Heart wrenching

Here is a story that will make you stop and think what is really important in life. By the end will have gone through every emotion there is. Pulled me in from the start and held on to me tell the end. Make sure you have tissues near by, and try not to climb into the book to extract punishment.

This was a really good read. The emotional battle that these characters are going through is heartbreaking. I felt like the chemistry between the main characters could have been a little better. But other than that it was very well done. I will warn you that if you have a heart it will make you cry!!!

This was my first book by this author, and i will be reading more.
I love a book with a strong female character and the problems she has with love. My heart strings pulled on all throught the book.
Luke took in kids to protect them from a sad home life.
There were times I laughed and time wondered what was next. I couldnt put book down.

Such a good, beautiful story. I thought the characters were well written and I was drawn right in to the story. I felt like I was a part of the family that these characters created and the ending had me bawling.
Will definitely be reading more by this author.

Amazing Read

This was Heartfelt and full of Suspense. This book had me hooked and brought tears to my eyes. I Highly Recommend this book for over 18 due to content.

The story line was okay, but the writing was amateurish, at best, and the editing left much to be desired.

This was a good book. But I didn’t care for the end. It was super sad and kind of just ended abruptly. I think it should went a bit further into the future and showed their HEA.
