Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her since Evan, her best friend, has coveted her since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.

Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an animal all his own.

A story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.

My Thoughts:
"Absence makes the heart grow fonder" my ass. Not stitching that little pearl of wisdom on a pillow anytime soon. How about "absence makes the head dizzy and fills the heart with aching bewilderment."
 Evan and Laney have been best friends for as long as they remember and slowly but surely began to fall for each other. Before they head off to different colleges, Laney gives Evan a clean slate. They are going to be far, meeting new people. Evan is a good looking guy and he's bound to have other girls fawn over him. Just in case there is a problem at least they can say that they were broken up. What Laney wasn't planning was to fall for Dane. Now even must choose which guy to be with.

I enjoyed this book it. Its predictable in so many ways but intersting nontheless. The characters were enjoyable and relate-able. I liked that the readers got more then one point of view with Evan, Dane and Laney. There was only like one or two twists to this book. I hope to see more from the next book.

N/A Coming of Age- MATURE audiences.

Evan Allen is a handsome, athletic, southern gentleman who now attends Georgia Southern University for no good reason.

After what he expected to be the romantic gesture o
f the century, Evan is looking at no friends, a year of ineligibility on the football team, and no girl.

He's starting over alone and doesn't know quite how to proceed. Certain members of The Crew refuse to let him face things by himself, taking him under their wing, and it doesn't take the ladies long to notice him, either.

Sometimes life doesn't go as you had planned. Sometimes it goes better.

Embrace it.

Embrace, the second book in the Evolve Series by S.E. Hall, follows the characters from her debut New Adult romance, Emerge.

My Thoughts:

"You know, when things seem too good to be true, it's usually because they are..."
Evan always known that he wanted to be with Laney but things has change and he has had his heart broken by her. Rather then letting it bring him down with the help of his friends he's trying to see new people.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked that even if things didn't turn out the way he wanted he was still able to be friends with Laney. I liked that in this book I got to see a new side to Whitney and I liked her as a character. I loved how different this book was from the first. I thought that there was going to be more drama but this book was sweet. I was making assumptions about this book, I thought that this book was going to be one of those books were the best friend (Evan) would try to trudge up the bad past of Dane or maybe ruin things for Laney and Dane. And he would be like oh see no one knows you like I do look as this crap and secrets hes keeping. I've seen it happen in many books before. I liked how chill Evan was. I was so happy that he when he found the person for him. Even this book was more towards Evan's story I liked that Dane and Laneys point of views was still going on to show the reader how things are going on for them.

Of all the characters I love Sawyers character the most, and I was so happy to find that the new book coming out which I unfortunately have to wait for so I'll busy my time to read the Novella Entangled.
4.5 stars!

Things heat up, and not just the Georgia summertime, when Dane and Laney go head to head over plans for her new duplex. But Laney's got his number, and knows just how to coerce her bossy, domineering man. Spend the summer with the gang and find out...just how many is a crowd?

The members of the Evolve Crew are getting older; so is the content. Mature audiences recommended.

Optimal reading order: Emerge, Embrace, Entangled

My Thoughts:

Laney and Danes relationship is back and this time they are in a duplex that Dane has brought them.

I thought it was sweet seeing more from then. It was a unique little read that I found was fun and easy to read. It only took me like a hour to read. It was very enjoyable. 4 of 5 stars!
