This was a crazy fast read. I enjoyed the story but it seemed that once I got into the story, it was over.

An amazing little fast paced love story. I loved how again this takes place in Mason. Mason is just a great place for a storyline. I enjoyed this one very much only because it involved football but because it was a great story about finding that one no matter what is between you. Sawyer finally gets his dream job. But will he realize that he wants the one thing that has been a pain in his butt since they were kids. Addie Mae comes back to surprise her best friend not knowing that she has feeling ...more

Such a sweet and sassy love story which takes place in Mason TX. Sawyer & Addie Mae make a fantastic couple and their love story revolves around football and the love a woman has for her best friend’s brother. It was so good and just perfect for the Wanted series novellas.

My Rating: 4.5 stars *****

I was pulled right into this super short story. The story has secrets, second chance at love, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading them first if you want the full stories of the wanted series as these novellas take place in the same series:

Saved (Wanted, #2) by Kelly Elliott

Believe: A Wanted Christmas (Wanted, #3.5) by Kelly Elliott

First ever story I've read by Casey Peeler, and I do believe I'll be back for more.

This was a slow burner, not quite instalove, as Addie and Sawyer had known each other for a very long time. I'm really enjoying small town love at the moment, and this was a cute story, best friends smoking off limits,hot brother, but love has a funny way of staying hidden.
The secrecy of Pilkington the baby shower have them purpose, which I think helped them move from being each others plans in the butt to close f
3.5 Stars
This story is short, fast paced and sweet. I read this book in one sitting and was left wanting more. I really liked Addie. She was a good friend to Madelyn. I liked the effort she put in and the determination to make her best friend happy. I didn’t love Sawyer but I didn’t hate him either. His assumptions about Addie annoyed me. I wanted to shout at him to open his damn eyes and see what was right in front of him.
The storyline for this book is easy to follow and a nice read.

Loved this fast paced, sweet love story. The fact that is features football, best friends brother and is set in Mason then its griping and a great addition to this Kindle World Series.

Sawyer and Addie Mae are so sweet together, their connection and chemistry is beautiful to watch develop and blossom.

I voluntarily reviewed and Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the author and Inkslinger PR

Sawyer is so sweet, "...I want everyone to know you’re my girl cheering me on in the stands, but it’s what happens when those lights go out that matters most.” I liked this book.

Sawyer and Addie just make you so stinking happy! This was just a sweet story (and Addie has plenty of sass!) I adore best friend brother romances and this one was spot one!

This book was sooo cute. I really enjoyed it. I gave it 4 stars because of how rushed the ending seemed and loose ends. Other than that, it was a quick enjoyable read.

Beyond the Lights, is a novella that reads much more like the beginning of a longer story that's been cut too short rather than a short story/novella.
Although I really, truly enjoyed the characters and their story, to me, it felt as though there was much more to the story than was shown. Amost as though the characters needed a larger playing span and more chapters to get the full story out of them.
I admit that I finished the book and was a little disappointed that the story ended so shortly, I
