Now, he does what needs to be done in order to get by. Work hard. Play it safe. They’re his mottos, and he’s not going to break them.
Until a beautiful woman with the ocean in her eyes and freedom in her soul comes to his rescue. She’s never known the kind of tragedy he has-and that’s what makes her so damn appealing.
But can Cameron finally let go and risk that last piece of himself? Will honest love be enough?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars to Honest Love (Duet Part One) by author Lauren K. McKellar.

Get ready to have your heart squeezed and your gut punched. Be ready to smile and cry. There will even be some swooning and a bit of laughter. And then when you are feeling content, you better hold on tight for the worst angst and stress. It’s not that this premise is completely unpredictable because it isn’t. However the author will give you the comfort and security you’re reading for, then rip it away. Needless to say this book ends in a cliffhanger. The good thing? We won’t have to wait until the next book. I believe part two will be released in April. Thank goodness!

Honest Love was my first book by this author. Apart from reading part two in this duet, I would definitely like to read more from her. I found the writing smooth and paced steady. I read this whole book in about ninety minutes because I couldn’t put it down. I admit I am not a big fan of cliffhangers. Actually I rarely read them unless the next book is available. I just can’t take the stress. Also, I read so much that if there are many months between the releases, my head will be in other books causing me to have to re-read. I don’t like doing that and avoid it if I can. However the blurb for this book was so intriguing. I knew there would be many feels and I was right.

Cameron and Everly…..
Cameron has had to deal with something that is so horrific and tragic. And even a couple of years later, he is having trouble letting it go and moving on. But he does get a chance to be happy again. And so for a short while, he feels alive once more. But this feeling won’t last. And Cameron will have new tragedy to deal with.

Everly was a kind and supportive heroine for Cameron. Unfortunately she has secrets. These secrets will bring heartache and mistrust. As I mentioned, this book does end in a cliffhanger which while was devastating enough, doesn’t even reveal all Everly’s secrets.

I know this book will have a happy ending. However, how Cameron and Everly will find their happily ever after is going to be interesting if not a little angsty. I can’t wait for the roller coaster of emotions to continue!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚
