Set Us Free is a dark romance with scenes that some may see as non-erotic. Not intended for anyone under the age of 18!

Set Us Free
For Emmalyn and Kodah being set free meant living in the real world away from the clutches of her step-father. It meant living a life they always dreamed about together.

But it’s never that easy, is it?

Life is cruel and untamed.

And not everything

M.R. Leahy Set Us Free is the conclusion of Kodah and Emmy's story :) There will be another book about a different character, but this book does have closure.

descriptionThis cover is OK. It's a bit on the boring side. It doesn't give you any hint to what the story is about. I am also not a huge fan of the font used. Like I am always saying an awesome book deserves an awesome cover and this one just falls a bit short in that regard.description

Title: Set Us Free
Author: MR Leahy

5+ smashing stars



The first time I read a book my MR Leahy, it was her debut novel and I fell in love with the way that she brought so many disturbed, broken characters and made their story worth reading. One that makes your heart pound because as dark as her story was, you just knew that deep down inside, it was probably inside yourself as well. So it's no wonder that when I found out she was coming out with her second novel, the second instalment in her de

Marx Nixon's boarding school has been demolished and all the kids freed though the psychological and physical scars remain.

They say time heals all wounds but in Emmalyn's case she's had it easier than others. Amnesia. The doctors tell her her mind isn't ready to process her past and maybe never will. Though she get snapshots at times, her past is closed, including who and where her family are. The only real constant is blue eyes and a hooded figure.

Kodah has had to make difficult decisions but

Since reading Set Me Free at the beginning of this year I was really looking forward to reading Set Us Free. I wasn't disappointed. I absolutely loved this story. From start to finish I was consumed by these characters.

This is the continuation of Emmalyn and Kodahs story. Secrets are revealed and the past comes back to haunt them. As Emmalyns memory returns is she strong enough to fight for what she wants.

If your looking for a really well written dark romance then I certainly recommend you rea

Last year, I read one of my favorite debuts ever, Set Me Free and was instantly captivated by Emmalyn and Kodah's story.

Better Than the First!

At the end of Set Me Free, I wasn't sure how I felt about the whole Emmalynn, Kodah and of course that crazy mother of hers. While I still didn't get the answer about the mother I was looking for, it didn't matter. The book was fantastic from beginning to end. This review may contain spoilers from the first book, so catch up before reading.

Set Us Free is the continuation of Emmy and Kodah's story from Set Me Free.

It was such an intense emotional read that there were times I just had to set it aside and breathe through my emotions.

My husband would look at me and ask, "Are you okay?"

Ummmmm... "No, I'm not. Im not okay!" I swear he thinks there's something wrong with me. Oh well, anyways...

It's been years since they were freed from their lives of Hell, but Emmy and Kodah still haven't found their heaven. Kodah hides in the shadows

This is book 2, the story follows on from book one about Kodah and Emmalyn, and it was fantastic.
Make sure you read Book 1 first so you get to know these characters and know what is going on.
I have laughed, I had tears I had OMG moments. This book starts following on with the end of book 1 and if you read book one you will know the ending.

Loved this series!!! Love this author! I laughed. I cried. I swooned. At times my heart beat out of my chest! This is book 2 in a dark romance series by M.R. Leahy. It is not for the faint of heart. There are dark, twisted, and raw scenes full of angst, but there are also touching and beautiful scenes. It is a good balance of both. There are sensitive subject matters but it is written realistically and beautifully. She did an amazing job in weaving this story. In the end, there is an HEA, and I ...more

I thought the story of Emmy and Kodah got to me the first time. That was not even the half of it. Emmy has this light even after all the bad that has happen to her and it still amazes me after this read. What more can this woman endure after everything she has gone through. Day after Day she comes stronger and stronger. 5 years of therapy and she still only gets bits and pieces of what has made her the woman she has become today. I new threat though

I received an ARC of Set Us Free for an honest review!
1. Would you recommend this book to others, and why? Yes! Kodah should be what every woman wants in a man! He was such an amazing character.

2. How long did it take to finish? Less than a day! As soon as it was sent to my kindle I stared this book and I managed to neglect all my motherly duties to finish it!

3. Were the main characters likeable? Likeable? Uh duh! How could you dislike Emmalyn and Kodah? You couldn't. Their story was amazing.

I can appreciate when a book receives lots of praise and accolades from several different readers. This series by MR Leahy has been on my TBR list for a while-and I finally got a chance to dive in. As a lover of dark romance, I must admit that the writing was a bit of a turn off for me personally, but do not let it deter you from reading the second book in this series.

I have to keep this short and sweet, and I refuse to spoil a story. Especially one as intense and intricate as Set Us Free. This book MUST be read after Set Me Free.

MR Leahy blew me out of the water once again with the conclusion to Emmalyn and Kodah's story. It was dark and really hard to read at times. It was one you had to put down to catch your breath as you followed the road littered with twists and turns. It was more like a roller coaster, where once you caught your breath, it was lost on

Squeals are never as good as the original, right?

WRONG!

Listen, I'm not a huge dark read fan. Every once in a while I'll dabble in the dark, and usually come away feeling the need to bleach my eyeballs... But there's something about M.R. Leahy's writing. She's done the unthinkable - thrown me into the dark and made my time there...enjoyable.

Sometimes you read a book or series and it/they:
1. Is/Are different from what you usually read.
2. Are touched to the very depths of your soul.

I am not a reader of dark books. At all. I am a contemporary romance and romantic comedy girl. I like nice and happy things. Not just with books, with movies too.

That said, the author asked me to work on both of these books (Set Me Free and Set Us Free), one as a proofreader and one as an editor. I will admit I was scared going into them not knowing what t

Emma and Kodah weren't the only ones that have stolen my heart. Buck, Drifter and even JB were loveable individuals and I hope that we get to see at least one or two of them again in the future.

For a bookworm like me starting a new series is the meaning of happiness and when any of your favourite writers announces the release of the next book in their series you tend to stalk them in their social media.
