OK girls, this is a MUST read. This book is an amazing Debut book by Phoenix Rayne. It needs to go to the top of your "TBR" list. This is a book featuring a real size woman, at the beginning I laughed so hard at some of the comments Cricket makes about herself, as it was something I would say.
I loved this book, like seriously loved it. It was amazing. I read it in one go. I loved everything about this book. You guys know I don't do spoilers and this one is no different. I cant say too much without giving this book away. All I will say is wow. This had me on the edge of my seat. Phoenix Rayne is an Author to watch out for. I loved Cricket I don't think we've heard all of her story and Jyme really never seen that coming. I loved his mum Mrs JJ.
When it got to the end of the book I gasped very loud. I cant wait for book 2. This one pulls at your emotions.
I would give this 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments
About the Author
Tell us about you?
I love to read and write, If I'm not reading then I am probably writing. I'm single because I'm constantly cheating on my real life boyfriend with my book boyfriends.
What was your inspiration behind writing this Debut book?
I lived in Washington State for 4 years and I loved it while I was there. I was so intrigued by the Native American Reservations and their culture. I met A LOT of HOT Natives and quickly learned how hard they love. All the guys that I met and spoke with were extremely passionate about life and love. It gave me chills and that where I mustard up this story.
Is There a "Thing" you do to get into the zone for writing?
Not really, It sort of hits me like a ton of brinks. Now when I am in that so called zone, I shut my phone and T.V. off. I like soft music playing in the back ground and that's about it. OH I almost forgot, and a nice bottle of wine, or maybe a few....
Is any part of the book about you?
Not to give anything away. My fav part is when Cricket finds out about Jymes family trait. I had a really hard time keeping it together on that one.
Who is your favorite character in the book?
Oh this is tough it's like picking a favorite child.....uhmmmmm It's in between Mrs. JJ and D'Artagnan. I love both of those characters and I bring them out more in the next two books.
What are you reading at the moment?
Oh goodness I'm currently reading 3 books right now. One of my besties introduced me to The Mortal Instruments. I know I'm super late reading them but I love them so far.

What Can you tell us about the next book?
