Ryan Evans has been caught with his pants down—literally. This footballer is known for scoring—on and off the field—but this time, he's in over his head. His take-no-prisoners publicist, Kennedy Cole, seems to think hiding out in Maine is the best solution but he's not going willingly.

When Ryan, a London footballer, gets into some hot water with the the press and his team, his publicist, Kennedy sends him to hide out at her best friend's B &B in Maine. Elodie and Ryan don't make much sense on paper, but the sparks sure do fly when they meet. I really enjoyed this one. I thought these two just brought out the best of each other. It was just a very heartwarming story with great characters, and the side characters were just fun. It's been a minute since I read Corinne Michaels' ...more

Ryan's known for soccer and his off the field shenanigans. Unfortunately, his latest scandal is one his publicist may not be able to get him past. So sending him to lie low at her best friend's B&B in the US is just the thing for now. He just has to remember to keep himself out of trouble, not to touch Elodie, his publicist's best friend, then in short time, he'll be back in London and back on the field. At least that's the plan...

RECLAMATION ... WOW!!! Evie Graham ... I'll definitely be reading more from this author!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed RECLAMATION, it was fun, light-hearted, sexy and romantic. Ryan Evans is the bad boy of English football, and he has literally been caught with his pants down. Kennedy Cole, his PR person, has had enough and decides to get him out of the country and away from the spotlight of the press. Elodie Stewart, Kennedy's BFF, runs and B&B in rural Maine, it's the p

This is the first book I’ve read by the author, and she did not disappoint! I have been a long time fan of Corinne Michaels and her Salvation series so the Salvation Society books have been a great way to hang out, albeit loosely, with the Salvation world.

Ryan and Elodie were the epitome of opposites in every way. He lived in the spotlight; she in the background. But, when Ryan gets in trouble, his publicist Kennedy, best friend to Elodie, gets him out of London and into Lilac Harbor at Elodie’

Ryan is a football player who is becoming more known for his off-field antics rather than his play on the field. He has been sent to Maine, not by choice, to spend some time at a Bed & Breakfast owned by the friend of his PR rep until the scandal dies down.

While Elodie tries to heal from the demise of her marriage she has been managing the family’s Bed & Breakfast. Having an arrogant athlete who is not only there under duress but is well aware of his appeal to women is a complication she could d

Reclamation (The Salvation Society) by Evie Graham is the first book I have read from this author and I look forward to reading more of her work. I really enjoyed Elodie and Ryan’s story. They are two complete opposites who have a chemistry that leads to a really sweet romance that neither one expected. I loved how they learn that when you find that right person it heals something inside you that you never knew you needed. These two bring out the best in each other and this book will leave you s ...more

So this was my first read from Evie Graham and I wasn't disappointed at all. Evie wrote a very sweet and romantic story. This book is definitely light and leave us satisfied. Yes there is connection to Corinne Michaels' Salvation Series but it also stands alone on its own. Most definitely worth reading it. Thank you Evie for writing an amazing story.

Lilac Harbor is becoming one of my favorite places to visit. Evie Graham has created a beautiful place where we know happily ever afters are being lived out as we get to know new people. We meet Ryan and Elodie, Ryan's agent, and Elodie's best friend being the connection to Corrine Michaels' world. Reclamation was such a sweet story with loveable characters and low angst.

Ryan is the bad boy of the soccer/football premier league in the UK and has pulled one too many stunts---and ends up suspended

I really enjoyed this story. The author did a brilliant job with a well paced storyline, enticing characters and the perfect amount of romance, heart and steam. It is one story you can easily read in one go as you wont want to put it down once you start it.

Ryan is a playboy Football player in the UK that likes to keep his publicist Kennedy on her toes. After a scandalous night out he is suspended and sent to Kennedy's best friends B&B in the USA to lay low and try to stay off the presses radar.

Ryan is a playboy British football player, who is caught quiet literally with his pants down, and his long suffering no-nonsense publicist decides to send him to rural Maine, which is where her best friend Elodie lives and runs a B & B, and this is the perfect place to hide him and get him out of the county and into seclusion and away from the press and being in the spotlight.

Every book that I read by Ms. Graham just gets better and better! First off, I just love the world that Ms. Graham has created in Lilac Harbor.

This is the story of Elodie (love the name) and Ryan.

The pace of this story is spot on and the chemistry between Elodie and Ryan is hotter than Hades!

I empathized with Elodie, after everything she has been through with her ex, her vulnerabilities were raw and her heart was bruised but not broken. She shelters herself in the running of her family's B&B

Bad boy Ryan is a huge soccer star well football where he plays at. He is at the top of his game and nothing can get him down. However he's messed up one to many times and it's time for him to take a break when he get's suspended. His publicist sends him to a B & B ran by her best friend Elodie. Elodie totally love her name and her character. She's a hard worker, loves her family, and takes care of everyone.

I adored Reclamation! Evie Graham's writing gets better and better with every book I read from this new author. Her stories are engaging and sexy and each has uniquely fun characters. Reclamation focuses on Elodie and Ryan, two completely opposite characters brought together under unlikely circumstances. I loved Ryan's evolution. Seeing him grow and blossom with the right woman was refreshing. To

Evie Graham is a new author to me. Ryan is a bad boy “football” (aka soccer to those us use in the US) star who is managed by Kennedy Cole. To get him away from the bad press, she sends him to her best friend’s B&B in Maine. Elodie has been burned by her ex husband but is happy running her family’s B&B. When Ryan and Elodie meet, they have instant sparks, but neither is looking for anything serious. I enjoyed this books. It was an easy, sweet read.

The second set of releases for The Salvation Series are here! In Reclamation by Evie Graham we get a delightful read that will leave you smiling. Ryan Evans’s publicist has had enough of him. Once he makes headlines again and not for the good of the team, she sends him away to her friends B&B to regroup and get his act together. He does not want to be there. Elodie Stewart is just out of a relationship and starting over. The last thing she wants is to have the temperamental Ryan under her roof. ...more

Evie Graham is a new to me author, and I really enjoyed Reclamation a lot. Ryan is a British footballer (in America it's known as soccer), with a bad boy reputation. His latest stunt had him banished to Maine at a Bed & Breakfast, and there was nothing he could about it. Elodie is running the place, and since she's trying to get past the end of her marriage, she really doesn't need the complication of a playboy athlete who doesn't want to be there. Despite being complete opposites, the sparks ar ...more

Reclamation by this new to me author is part of C.M.'s The Salvation Society.
Ryan Evans is a british soccer star, who's greatly enjoying his single life. Scandals follow him everywhere and he doesn't really care. But enough is enough and he has to lay low for a while. What better place than rural Maine in fall. He takes quarters at a B&B.
Elodie Stewart manages the B&B and it's attraction at first sight for both of them.
Reclamation is a well written story, a slow burn, low on drama and I liked it

Evie Graham is quickly becoming an automatic, one-click author for me. I also want to move to Lilac Harbor. Or at least stay in the B&B that is featured in this book.
This book is a part of the Corinne Michaels' Salvation Series, though you don't have to read any of the other prior books as this is a complete standalone.
The story of Ryan, a hot British football star, and Elodie was a sweet, yet steamy, perfectly paced story. They both had issues to work out and I loved the moments when they bot

Reclamation - A very sweet story with relatable characaters! I absolutely love the quiet setting of the B&B in a small coastal town. I would love to spend a week there with the fantastic cooking and ocean views. Elodie is the owner of the B&B that Ryan's agent had set him up in to hide out. He is a playboy Soccer player who has been in the press too often for his behavior. He is not in the best of moods and with a cranky attitude when he arrives in Maine. It's more of a slow burn romance but lov ...more

This is such a fun and easy read.  If you've read this author before, we get to travel back to Lilac Harbor and get Elodie's story.  If you haven't visited Lilac Harbor before then you are in for a real treat.  The chemistry between these two is sizzling, and they are both so endearing.  This author writes these characters in such a way that you want to be friends with them in real life.  I definitely want to go visit the B&B and meet all these people and have a drink.  This is a quick and light ...more

This was such a sweet story of second chances in love and in life. Eloide is newly divorced and is working on herself and her dream job running her family's B&B. I loved how she knew exactly what she wanted and couldn't be talked out of it or how no guy could make her walk away. She is a strong character that is so easy to fall in love with. Ryan was escaping the fame and fortune of being a professional athlete and I loved how he figured out what he wanted from life! Together Ryan and Elodie wer ...more

I didn't realize two things, this is was a novella and that the link to salvation series is very small.

I enjoyed that Elodie led a "simple" life but was so happy to be where she was with her family. Ryan had all he thought he wanted, yet was lonely in a crowded club. Els and Ry found what they needed in the simplest ways and it bloomed to something special. Right when I was enjoying the results of the journey, it ended. It was a sweet story by a new author. I would loved for it to be a bit long

I very much enjoyed this book. A new author, a new series (well, this is a part of one, kinda sorta lol) and I loved the characters. Elodie is sweetness personified. Her bestie, Kennedy, asks to stash her client, Ryan, your typical bad boy footie, at her B & B for awhile to hide out from bad press. At first, he lives up to his reputation, bad attitude & all. But slowly, the peace and serenity, and Elodie, give him something he’s never had before. Elodie too finds something she’s never had, and t ...more

This was a great book for me to kick off reading the second round of Salvation Society series releases.

I really enjoy small-town romance and Elodie and Ryan's story fit the bill perfectly. They start out thinking the last thing they need is each other, but maybe a relationship together is exactly what they need.

The story moved at a nice pace. There were definite issues they needed to solve, but it wasn't overly dramatic or angsty. I liked this book and am definitely going to check out the author
