Grab your tickets now for the rollercoaster of romance with a twist! The filthy rich guy is a kind-hearted, self-assured, woman and the downhome gal is a pig-headed, financially insecure, man! Skye McNeil’s OCEANS AWAY proves that you may not be able to go home to find things exactly the same, but if you really want something enough, it just may be worth the wait.

Ireland Leighton knew what it was to have parents who loved her, a solid upbringing and a sense of caring for those less fortunate. Ad

This is only the second of Skye's books I have read and I think she's going to become an automatic one-click for me. She writes stories that instantly pull you in and pull at your heart strings as well as frustrate you to no end with how stubborn some people are and then right back to all the gushy, mushy stuff. I absolutely adored Ireland and Gideon and kept rooting for them but then I kind of liked Mason and wasn't sure how I felt but in the end it ends as I would like it to and how it's meant ...more

This is book 2 in the series, however, it can be read as a stand alone and the reader will have no problems starting here. This book takes the reader all over the world and gives them a glimpse of what everlasting love looks like.

The plot is fun, fast moving and unique. The characters encourage the reader to always strive for their goals and they are relatable to the reader. This book gives us Ireland and Gideon and the struggle to move on because they both know that they were meant for each oth

**A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

I know that I say this over and over, but I honestly do squeal with delight when a request to sign up for an author that I love comes across my email. I had recently read her first book in this series and absolutely loved it. I hoped when I had finished that one and it was labeled as #1 that a second book would be coming soo

Gideon & Leighton are romantic gold! She's a millionaire who has come for a visit, while Gideon is a farmer content with his life on their island. For whatever reason, this is all I feel like telling you about this story, because I feel like going in blind is better to be honest. There's so much emotional upheaval in this story that I really thought that my heart would break, the push & pull would make me go mad, and yet, it was impossible to put down, so basically, it hurt so good with all the ...more

First, I want to thank Skye McNeil for providing me with this book so I can bring you this review.

Skye McNeil is back again with a fun read in Oceans Away book number 2 in the Atlas Series.

I totally adore the creativity in the names that Skye picked for her characters. For example, she picked Zaviar, Ireland, Gideon. The dogs names she chose were unique too-Diesel and Dallas.

I loved how Skye made a point thing may change when you return home again but you will always have your memories. Irela

This book was so amazing to read. I loved every minute of it. I was reading and thinking this is going to be another romance book but wow what a surprise I got when I read this book.

We get to meet Ireland and Gideon and wow just wow. We get a glimpse into their life and they grew up in a small mid west town. Gideon has love for his farm and Ireland has this love and desire to help others as she was adopted at a young age.

Then one day Ireland's biological parents die and leave her millions of do

While this is not my typical genre, there were parts of this book that I did enjoy. I like it when books jump right in rather than drag the beginning of the story out for too long. Oceans Away does the jumping in, for sure. This book was fun and entertaining in a lot of ways.

Now, there were a few things that I didn't love. First of all, and I know that this is a typical trope in romance books and movies, but it seriously gets on my nerves when there are constant misunderstandings and stubbornnes

This book blew me away. I was so emotional throughout the hole story. Skye McNeil has got herself a masterpiece on her hands. The author created a story that was totally emotional, a rollercoaster with an end that will blow you away. I think this book will be one all romance lovers love and will keep reading over and over again. The chemistry and emotion between these amazing people was felt from the minute she stepped foot back in town, until the very last page.

Gideon and Leighton have a past

In February I read the first book in The Atlas Series ‘Hearts Abroad’. I definitely enjoyed that book! So when the author asked if I was willing to read the second book in the series, I simple couldn’t resist.

In ‘Oceans Away’ we meet Ireland. Ireland grew up on a farm in Iowa, next to her first love Gideon. After becoming very rich, Ireland is coming home for the first time in almost five years. Now, all those years later Ireland doesn’t expect to find Gideon even more attractive than she did b

Original review posted on my blog From Ink to Paper

I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is my second chance of reading one of Skye McNeil books and I was not disappointed. I loved her first in this series and this one I loved just as much. It is easy to say that hers are ones that I read really fast and am always sad when it is time for me to put it down; and when they end!

I like that the series has a different story for each book because it is just fun to read

this just wasn't the book for me. Also, it could have used another edit, but I imagine others will enjoy the story... 2 stars really means it was ok for me.
