First of all I just want to say that the cover fits this story to a T and it's totally drool worthy. I absolutely loved this story from beginning to end. Guy and Molly have an epic love that starts when they're young and lasts a lifetime. They always fought so hard for each other. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a true romance. The angst in this story comes from real life issues that only strengthen the couples relationship instead of causing unnecessary drama. I literally cried ...more

This book was absolutely AMAZING!!!! I will warn you the prologue and epilogue are VERY sad. I was bawling like a baby! I'm really not going to go into this book too much because I honestly think everyone should give it a try. Okay so this book is about Guy and Molly, they have basically grown up together since Guy is Molly's older brothers best friend. He has always been there for her and she has always loved him. Guy and her brother Amos goes off to war when something tragic happens and Guy re ...more

Well, if you know me, you know I love the broken hero, and Guy was the ultimate in broken heroes. I just wanted to hug him, soothe him, touch him, stroke him......ummm....yeah I'm getting a little out of control there! But, you get my meaning!

Guy is the best friend of Molly's brother, Amos. Growing up together since they were kids, Amos and Molly had the typical brother/sister relationship......spatting and teasing, but bottom line was they would also have each other's back. And then there was
Another great story from HJ Bellus. She is quickly becoming one of my must read authors. Royal Atlas was a lot more emotional than I expected. It definitely had some heartbreaking moments. Guy the hero was fantastic. HJ Bellus always writes possessive, sexy yet sweet heroes that are crazy about the heroine and Guy was definitely that. (view spoiler). Molly the heroine was just okay to me ...more
Molly aka Hop and Guy, the love of her life.
I confess I did consider DNFing this one when it got super sad. I don't usually like tear jerkers, but the writing was good and believable.... hence the tears.
Molly grows up following her older brother Amos and his friend Guy around. They are thick as thieves even though Amos and Molly fight like cats and dogs. But despite all the taunting, teasing and rough housing, there's a bond there between the three of them that keeps them close. Guy is Hop's pro

Emotional and heartbreakingly beautiful.

This book's layout, the idea behind how the story was told, was very clever. Reminded me of Nicholas Sparks and I mean that as a very high compliment.

"I'd give you the world, Molly."

I loved Guy and Molly's story. It made me cry (A LOT) laugh, and swoon. Truly a good and emotional read, one you need to check out. I'd say it's HJ Bellus' best book, although I'm sure she'll wreck us even more with her next installment!

Phenomenal! I knew going in that I would love this book. I am a huge fan of this author and have loved everything I have read of hers. However, I was not prepared for the level of emotion that she brought to the table with these characters. This storyline blew me away and left me in tears, breathless with my feelings. Every once in a while, you come across a book that will not only touch your heart, but will forever brand your soul. Royal Atlas is my soul marking book for 201

I loved when Molly and Guy were playful, “this is kind of her circle and not my thing, but she’s hot as eff strutting around in tight *** jeans and a cowboy hat .” He grabs my hand from his chest and lowers it until I’m cupping the bulge in his jeans." A drunk Guy equals a horny Guy, “no, you’re going to ride me like I’m a God da*n champion.” He drops his hands to my *** pulling me to him." I loved this book, Guy was so sweet.

Sweet story but lacked something. I don't know if it was the writing or of it simply was a bit bland but something seemed missing. Otherwise a safe sweet read.

I was just so thrilled and excited to read and thoroughly enjoy this beautiful romance by one of my complete favourite authors, H.J. Bellus. Bringing forth to us the reader such beauty, honesty and heartbreak. I adored this book so much. Written so well, and loving all its emotional characters that made this book such a winner!

This book is almost as good as this cover. Dang, that's a good picture!

I really liked this book. The romance was sweet, sexy, funny, and sad. It's low on angst but high on drama. I liked the writing and the story moved along really well. It was a bit too sticky-sweet at times and the ending was nice but a bit too much all tied up in a sweet bow. But overall, a great book. I'll be reading more from this author.

Ok so I finished this book a couple of days ago and have been sitting on the review because I honestly didn't know if I would be able to extract the words to do it justice.

Molly and Guy share such an unexplainable and unbreakable connection. Their love is timeless and lasts through the years.
Within this story you are transported to another place completely. I was so swept up in what I was reading that I lost track of all time and became completely oblivious to what was going on around me.

I was immediately drawn to this book by the cover. I'm a horse lover, and work with horses for a living, so I always love reading books that incorporate them into the story. This book turned out to be SO much more than I expected! This was such a beautifully written story that had me laughing and crying, and it completely shattered me at some points and had me bawling my eyes out.
I received an ARC of this book through Hype PR.

From the moment I read the first chapter I knew what would be coming a

Brother and sister, best friends, family...... love is present in each of these bonds. And this story really truly tells the tale of family and love. We start out with Belle asking the story of Molly and Guy. Molly dives right in and so begins an epic love story!

Molly has always loved Guy, all the way back to age 5 where the story starts. Amos, Molly's older brother and Guy are best friends. Amos is kind of a pain in the behind but Guy, he's always there to help Molly and never leave her alone.

I can't even find the words to describe how much I loved this book. This is my new favorite book by H.J. Bellies. This is the book I will be thinking of and feeling for weeks to come.
Molly fell in love with Guy at the young age of 5. They went through a lot of firsts together and he was always there for her. They finally admit their feelings before he goes away to war. The man that returns isn't the one who she fell in love with. This book is all about family and sticking together. I would love

Royal Atlas had me hook line and sinker from the very beginning and left me speechless at the end!

Such a beautiful, heartfelt, heartbreaking and amazing love story of Molly and Guy that had me laughing, crying, snorting, then crying big ugly tears all over again.

Heidi has an amazing talent that should not be taken lightly. She makes you feel every emotion and feeling that her characters are feeling. This book made my heart sing over and over again too. Her characters are believable and emotiona

A great wonderful love story full of laughter and heartache. It really pulls you into the story falling into place between Guy and Molly.

Wow this author does it again! She tugged and pulled my heart into a love story that had me feeling deep for the characters and their background and falling hard for Molly Marshall and Guy Webb.

This read had a Notebook by Nicolas Sparks type feel. The story takes place back to a time of young kids, falling in love, and the headaches and hardships when faced with a tragedy a family wishes would never happened. Which in turn lead to b

This is not what I am expecting at all for the book when I pick it up. I never read this author's book, judge by cover and brief I thought it probably cute cowboy love story but it is much more of that. It's heart breaking and also heart warming story, I would said it's kind of second chance but not exactly that.
And second chance kind is also not my cup of tea.
In first page set the year on year 2052, I almost want to drop the book, because I hate the story from far future scenes.

Everlastingly love

This story was both heartwarming and gut wrenching at the same time. As you read each page you can feel the love growing between the family. Amos and Molly have me laughing as it reminds me of my brother and I. There truly is no bond like that of a strong country family. You cherish the good times and hold each other together during the hard times.
It was amazing watching the love grow between Molly and Guy right up til the end. Love is everlasting with these two. Can't wait t
