Guarding Hearts

Ellis Warner is a police officer, everyone’s friend and every girl’s fantasy- funny, dedicated, and too good looking for his own good. Thanks to a childhood he would rather forget and a young adulthood riddled with mistakes, he knows that no one can ever find out who he really is. He lives his life pretending to be the guy everyone sees on the outside. The one thing he knows for sure is that he can’t be serious with anyone. When he takes a second job as security for a new country star coming into town, he has no idea how that one decision will change his entire life and expose everything he has worked so hard to bury. 

Samantha Kerrigan won a nationwide contest that immediately forces her into the spotlight. Her dreams of being a successful country singer have come true, but dreams always come with a price. While going out on her first tour, a stalker’s advances threaten her safety, forcing her team to hire more protection. 

The second she meets Ellis, she knows there’s something about him and immediately makes him her private bodyguard. But he’s determined just to do his job, and she’s determined to make him open up. When her life is threatened and his secrets are exposed, will Ellis be able to guard Sam from danger, and his heart from her?

Ellis is best friend with Devin. He moved down and joined th SWAT team with him. At work, he learns that a celebrity need a extra security. Not really having a life, he takes the job. What he didn't expect, was to be blown away by Sam. Not only by her looks, but her talent and personality as well.

Finding Forever:

Due to adult content and subject matter, 18+, please. This is the fourth book in the Living Again series, but can be read as a standalone. However, there are spoilers in the epilogues of this book for the previous three books. This book is based on a true story. 

Lacey Russell has had enough heartbreak and loss for one lifetime. Turning tragedy into motivation, she becomes a veterinarian to honor her mother’s memory. She knows the path her life is on and she decided long ago that falling in love is not part of that plan. She’s seen firsthand that all it does is cause sorrow and pain.

It’s always been his dream to model, and he’s worked hard to achieve success. All he wants is to be supported and loved, but he wonders if that will ever happen for him. 
After many chance encounters throw Lacey and Brant together, it feels like something bigger than them is at work. When Lacey gets news that shatters her entire world, can she accept the support and love that Brant offers, or will the fear of the unknown make her turn down the chance at finding her forever?

Holy crap!! This book completely blew me away. I bawled a few times and was speechless! I was gutted. Completely and utterly gutted!! LL did a fantastic job writing this!

Lacey and Brant meet when his dog is hit. Lacey is one of the doctors. Lacey isn't looking for love, but is drawn to the oh-so-swoonworthy Brant. She takes a chance. Little does she know that she will be diagnosed with cancer. Not wanting to drag down Brant,  She tells him to be free, but he doesn't listen.

Even after her feeling like she has no control over her life, she lives it the best she can.
I love that no matter what Brant never gave up on her. Her friends and family are so selfless, it is amazing. I love that everyone is close and tightknit. 

Every book in this series gets better and better!! HIGHLY recommend reading this series!!

Breaking Free:
Alexis Carson-Nichols has had what anyone would describe as an idyllic childhood. She has great parents, little brothers and sister that mean the world to her, and friends that are always there for her. As she graduates from high school and gets ready to go to college, she feels like she has the world at her fingertips. She can’t wait to experience life as a young adult. Maybe even get a boyfriend…as long as her school comes first. 

What she doesn’t expect is to meet Greer Henderson. Greer hasn’t had a life anything like Alexis’. Sure, he’s had the parents that loved him, but that was about it. He’s never been understood or even tolerated. He’s spent his life in a constant state of inner chaos and outer turmoil. See, Greer has Aspergers. 

When he finally gets up enough courage to take a few classes at his local college, he becomes lab partners with Alexis. He thinks she’s the most beautiful person he’s ever laid eyes on, but he knows she won’t want anything to do with him. None of the kids ever do. But if there’s one thing he’s good at, it’s science. 

As Alexis tries to break through Greer’s tough exterior and understand his idiosyncrasies, she realizes that Greer may just be teaching her more than she could ever imagine, and changing her life in insurmountable ways. Can Alexis teach others how to love and accept Greer, even if he’s different? And can Greer, through Alexis, realize that all of his dreams are within his reach and that he’s worthy of love after all

"Love has no boundaries."

Alexis is off to college. She's always been level headed and focused. Her lab partner is different then what she's used to hut that doesn't stop her from being herself. She is drawn to Greer in ways she didn't think possible.

Greer has lived with Aspergers. Everything is different for him. He doesn't like to look at people when they talk, doesn't like to be touched, doesn't like breaking out of his daily routine; until Alexis. She changes something in him.

I cried while reading every book in this series. This one was sad. I felt so bad for Greer because of what Those bullies did. I love that Alexis told them where to go!!
The epilogue had me bawling all over again. Just the part with her dad, Ben, and then that song! Omg!

This is one of the best series I have ever read. It was real, raw, emotional, loving, heartfelt, friendly, sad; I felt every emotion possible! The author NAILED this series. If you haven't read this series yet, you NEED to!! An amazing job LL Collins!!
