Two broken souls. One last chance.

Avery never expected to take another chance at love. Until she’s thrown a curve ball she isn’t anticipating โ€“ a man that causes her pulse to race and also happens to be one of her bosses. Finding herself drawn to him, Avery does her best to push him away, but she in no way predicts her heart pulling him in.

Logan doesn’t trust women. Period. But a one-night stand cut short exposes him to a mysterious woman that flips his world upside down. He didnโ€™t predict meeting her – the one that would make him question everything. Undeterred by her need to keep him at an arm’s length, he goes against everything he believes in the quest to prove that they’re worth fighting for.

Coming Alive (Welcome to Carson, #1)Coming Alive by Renee Harless

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars to Coming Alive (Welcome to Carson Book One) by Renee Harless.

Wow, I loved this book! It had everything I love, all the emotions and the feels! Let me say it isn’t often that I am already bawling in the first chapter. I didn’t need an angsty build up to get me there. This author tore into my heart from the get go. This book was not one I could put down. What an amazing book to start the series with.

That said, I actually started the Welcome to Carson series with book two which was another amazing book. Carson is one of those small close knit towns that we adore. With each book in the series you will see how amazing and protective this town is towards its residents. I won’t say more about that because while by this point I have read the whole series up to date, each book takes us on a new suspenseful and sexy adventure. Damn, the men in this series are quite frankly beyond sexy.

Avery and Logan…..
Without giving any details away…..
Avery has had a horrible past. Actually, her past is so traumatic, I can’t believe she turned out to be such an amazing woman. No one should have to deal with what she has. Unfortunately because of her past, Avery is not going to allow herself to be hurt again. Her walls are up and reinforced tenfold. I could not blame Avery at all for her resistance.

Logan has his own emotional and dark past. Again, I was amazed at how incredible he was, how he made a success of his life despite how he was treated in his past. Logan, too, has a fortress around his heart.

Fortunately, for both these amazing characters, they are drawn to each other. Not only a physical attraction. There is something pulling their souls together. Something timeless, something that will heal their hearts and give them the future the deserve. With each other.

This book has drama, angst, some suspense and surprises along the way. I loved every minute of it. If you are looking for a new small-town series to fall in love with, I highly recommend this one. Up to date, there are four books & a novella released. Book Five is scheduled to release April 4th 2018.

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