I returned to Moss Harbor, determined to find answers about my mother's death. But all I've managed to uncover are three lonely souls calling out to mine.

In just a month, Leo, Hayle, and Tristin Sharpe have wound themselves around my heart, reminding me of what I've been missing. I want them back in my life for good, but I should have known that maintaining a friendship wi

Aug 17, 2020 rated it it was amazing
Heartless was so good!!! Tristin definitely redeemed himself, but really, Hayle and Leo did, too. Finally, I got to see three brothers working together for the girl they love, not just house-mates or enemies. Thea has proven to be the glue that sticks them all together and keeps them close. Their past, present, and future are unraveling and revealing dark secrets and deals and mysteries, but also a lot of love. I hope they can stick together to solve Thea’s mom’s mystery, but at the same time, g ...more

Damm it need the next one ASAP lucky not long to wait
Heartless is the second book in a contemporary (non-paranormal) new adult reverse harem series that has cute homages to The Wizard of Oz. I read books one and two back-to-back and they were exactly what I needed at the time. I enjoyed the drama between the brothers and that the romances between Thea and each hero goes at different paces. The underlying mystery that started in book one is super easy to figure out even in book one but comforting in that way, plus it is interesting to see how the c ...more

I would much prefer if this book didn't have the mystery element of who killed her mom. I feel like the mystery aspect of it is half-assed. I don't hate mystery-romance books when they are done correctly.... and here it just seems out of place.

Thea has only been back in Moss Harbor for a short while. She came back to discover answers surrounding her mother's death but it's turning into so much more. She's brought life back into Sharpe Manor and salvaged the closeness the brothers once held. She's given them a reason to care. Leo has found his courage with his love for Thea and now it's time for Tristin to prove that he has a heart.

I loved Leo's book; I love the new Leo, open and putting his heart on the line for Thea. However, Tristi

This second installment of the Lonely Souls picked right up where we left off in book 1. What a roller coaster this book is putting me through. I am so deeply in love with all 3 brothers. We see how much Thea cares about and connects with all of the brothers. I am enjoying the mystery surrounding her Mom's death. We are left with a cliffhanger (I had suspected this person for some time) and I can see a lot more obstacles for these 4 in the future.

I have received an ARC for my honest review.

Wow. The twists and turns just keep on coming. You think you have it all figured and and BAM you don’t. And that ending....shocked. I can not wait for book 3!

I loved this book, I read it within 24 hours of having it in my Kindle library. It’s a great second book for this series. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but the things I assumed were a given definitely were not. Reed did a spectacular job on Heartless. I truly felt for Thea and I cannot wait for the next installment! I will warn you there is quite the cliffhanger in this one. I couldn’t decide if I loved or hated Reed for this.

Following the yellow brick road.... Leads to a cliff hanger at the end of book two !

Is there any way I can receive an early copy of book three? I'm feeling like a junkie needing a bit right now !!! Ok so I'm loving the relationship between Tristin and Leo but my heart is reaching out for Hayle to be the main focal point in the next book, I got a thing for the underdogs. He just seems like a sad defeated always the last to be thought of guy but he's the hardest working and the most devoted one, h

Only getting better. I applaud Autumn for her great story line and awesome writing.
Okay, so, the guys. There's so much chemistry between Thea and the guys. I wish they weren't acting like douche canoes half the time 😂

I didn't know what to expect after book one in this trilogy, but I can tell you it was not this roller coaster ride (although, I feel like I should have expected it.)

We pick up right where we left off in Spineless, and you're thrown right back into the crazy, for lack of a better word. Throughout this book, you see a different side of Leo (one that I really love), way more of Hayle (who I want to just wrap in a blanket and steal away from the world), and continue to pull for poor Tristin who is

Heartless is a great follow up to Spineless. The mystery and suspense we encountered in book one continues to unfold in book two. We see character growth, not only with Thea, Tristin, Hale, and Leo, but with the secondary characters as well. Sometimes the secondary characters are left to fend for themselves and do not really add much to the plot, but the author did a great job of enhancing their storyline and simultaneously impacting Thea's story as well.

The only part I was a bit on the fence a

I am loving how this series is turning out to be. I will say that I am so happy that they are finally looking into how Thea's mother died again since it really wasn't talked about in the first book all that much. I am enjoying how the investigation is going along and how well they all are working together in order to find out. The only "complaint" I would have about this one is that there weren't as many Wizard of Oz references in this one compared to the first one, which wasn't to much of a big ...more

Thea and the boys are back with more mystery, more drama, and a ton more angst! As you know by the title, each book focuses on a certain character. The first, Spineless, focused more so on Leo. In Heartless, the main focus seems to be guessed it, Tristin! Oh man, I love the boy but dang if he doesn’t make Thea work to get past his walls. At times I was frustrated with him and his brothers but I should have known better and trusted Reed. She knows what she’s doing! It was nice to see a s ...more

I absolutely loved this. Autumn sure does know what she is doing. I really enjoyed book one, and it seems Autumn really stepped it up for book two. Heartless was so good, and I think that this series is becoming my favorite of hers.

I am so happy to see that the boys Hayle, Leo and Tristan are finally getting a long. I know that they have had some issues to work through but I have been waiting for this moment. You can tell that they love each other and have been through a lot and see the bond tha

Review for books 1 & 2:

Fun. Kind of reminded me of Tijan's Fallen Crest series (first: Fallen Crest High) and Erin Watt's Royals series (first: Paper Princess) - girl enters boy household, romantic interested in at least one of the boys, boys plus girl are a united team against the world.

I have enjoyed so far. Set up at the end of book 2 you could see a mile coming, but we'll see where she goes with it in book 3. Not a new favorite author, but it was good enough that I'll read the next book.

Aug 28, 2020 rated it it was amazing
Freaking awesome! I have read all the books Autumn has ever written and published. I love her style of writing and this is yet another amazing book by an awesome author. This is book 2 and you'll need to have read book 1 Spineless in order to understand. I love how the story continues for Thea and her guys. She knows she wants the guys back in her life and that she has missed out on love if you will. One is trying to woo her, the other is pushing her away, not wanting to interfere with his broth ...more

Twists, turns, and suspense, oh my!

The twists and turns keep coming in this series and I’m here for it. Like the last book, I’m missing the steam, but I really enjoy the characters that Autumn Reed creates.

I really like Thea. I like her loyalty and her determination. And the guys. The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorites, so this retelling makes my heart happy in all

Ooooooo this book had me on tender hooks with the feeling that something unexpected was coming and boy was I right! That ending has me desperate to know what’s going to happen and see how things turn out!

Thea, Leo, Tristin and Hayle have all be went through so much in this book with their thought, feeling, opinions and views on events and people around them and your heart goes out to them all. There are secrets that need to be uncovered, surprise twists, unexpected guests and lots of emotions r

Book 2 in Autumn Reed's Lonely Souls series did not disappoint. While Spineless left us on a cliffhanger, Heartless picks up right where it left off. As I mentioned in my review of Spineless, we're able to see elements and themes of the original Wizard of Oz/The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, something that I personally love picking up on. Reed kept the originality of the first book and added new and interesting plot and question points to this book and book 3 promises to be just as unique. I personall ...more

Oh my Cliff. Hanger.

Book 2 of this series sees some beautiful character development for Thea. We get a look at a different side to each Sharpe brother too. Then Throw in some blackmail, some secrets, an accident and a few teasers leaving you
needing more and here you have it! I definitely recommend this book. A brothers harem with an almost step sister. Throw a male bestie in, that secretly wants you and a female bestie that demands attention and love and loyalty with her craziness. Moss Grove i

There's something about series like these that do things to me. In the best way, I might add, because I am very much invested in Thea and her men. Why, I hear you ask? Well... Not only do we have one of my favourite tropes at play here. (Former) Friends to lovers is something I enjoy thoroughly, but this is nothing short of an amazingly well-plotted mystery. In Spineless we learn all about Thea's search for answers regarding her mom's death. In Heartless, Autumn Reed shifts in a higher

Most of the time, I feel like a second book in a series is slower and more tiresome to read but this one is the opposite. It amps up everything, romance mystery and emotion in general. All of the characters have an added layer of depth that make them impossible to love. And in some cases hate. There is a cliffhanger but it is the perfect to the story as it builds on the mystery. I can not wait to get my hands on the third book. Autumn Reed is amazing.

There is a couple of spots in this second book that I want to strangle each of the guys.Tristin in the first part and at the same time as Leo in one part; poor Hayle he even gets a part where I want to strangle him just for being a little obtuse. But I couldn’t put it down. All 3 of the guys and Thea need a break, need to come clean with one another. I can’t wait for Witless! Awesome job Autumn as always!!

Wow, I enjoyed book 1 of this contemporary take on the Wizard of Oz but I was blown away by book 2. Autumn Reed does a great job making the reader super invested in this story, so they pretty much havr no choice but to devour the book in a couple sittings haha. I definitely have a favorite of the brothers but even the one I super wasnt a fan of is wearing me down hahaha. Cannot wait to see what happens next!! Thank goodness we dont have long to wait til book 3 ❤

A lot comes to light in this book. I previously didn't trust Vincent, and I can say I still don't, but truly, he seems like a father who just misses his kids/family. However, I feel like he takes to much time to cover up things so he isn't "the talk of the town" rather than caring about his children. I have had my suspicions about why he keeps his Ex on the property. I know it is supposedly for his son, but I think there is more too it, and we kind of find out at the end of this book. ...more

What did I just read?
If book one was great, then book 2 is amazing. Autumn has done such a fantastic job with these characters. The writing is nothing short of greatness. Thea relationship with the Sharpe brothers may be my favorite out of all her books.
And that ending? Talk about dropping a bomb.
I’m looking forward to book 3.
