Ryan, the reformed bad boy, has been in love with Dina for years. But has taken things very slowly and accepted her friendship instead of a relationship because she isn’t ready for it yet. After years of “bad luck” Dina finally gets a reality check from her best friend and agrees to go out with Ryan. This book has a great flow and you really root for the main characters to get together, especially since they have been friends for so many years they seamlessly flow into a relationship. I love how Dina is a strong female lead who has a life outside Ryan and works hard to keep her independence and have love at the same time. I also loved the supporting roles and the long friendships they have all had with each other. 4 out of 5 stars for this book. The character development is amazing and we really get to feel all their emotions!
SALVAGED (DADDY’S GIRLS #2)
Brayden and Maggie have been dating for four years. Maggie is ready and expecting an engagement ring. Brayden has a past full of weaknesses and mistakes he can’t seem to shake. As he slowly loses everything, he also loses Maggie.
As his world unravels, can he find the strength to shake his inner demons? Does he have it in him to face the ghosts of his past? Can Maggie overcome his deceptions? Will they find a way to love and trust again? Can their love and relationship be salvaged?
This book is intended for mature audiences as it continues adult language and content.
This book is the sequel to Restore my Heart and is about Maggie and Brayden, best friends of Ryan and Dina, we first meet these two in book one and they have an established relationship. After 4 years of dating Maggie is waiting for Brayden to propose but he has some inner demons to fight and goes into rehab. Maggie patiently waits for him and we get to see them build an even stronger bond. Brayden really fights to keep Maggie’s respect and love and shares all his deepest secrets with her. I also give this book 4 out of 5 stars, good emotional character development…..
FULL THROTTLE (DADDY’S GIRLS #2.5)
High school sweethearts manage to make it through college into the working world still together and going strong. From the start of their relationship Jake has made very clear his apprehension to marriage. Kenna understood going into this nine years ago that with Jake there would never be a ring or white dress.
Now seeing their friends so eager to make such a serious commitment in their own relationships a crack begins to form in Jake and Kenna’s once solid foundation.
Will Kenna ever open up and share her dreams with Jake? Can Jake overcome his childhood issues? Is Kenna willing to accept things just as they are forever? Will her desire for a more serious commitment make her change her feelings for her one love? Is Jake enough alone or does Kenna demand more than he can give? Can they move forward full throttle into their future together?
This book intended for 18+ due to adult content and language
Jake and Kenna have been together for 9 years, he has always been honest about not wanting to get married, but lately Kenna has been feeling like there is more she wants out of life than being someone’s “live in girlfriend”. We, the reader, get a lot of background on Jake and Kenna because they have been together for so long and have built a mature stable relationship. One based on two people who share everything with each other, and still have a strong passion for each other. It took Jake coming to terms with his fear of commitment for him to propose to Kenna but she would have stayed with him anyways and i was really happy that everything worked out for them. What strong characters to stand by each other even though how they were living wasn’t “conventional”. I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars. The characters did what they thought was best for each other and didn’t let anyone peer pressure them to do anything they didn’t want to do.
BEYOND REPAIR (DADDY’S GIRLS #3)
Harrison and Tiffany have a long history of hooking up. Harrison decides he wants more. Tiffany, a spoiled Southern Belle is embarrassed by a working class Harrison. After over two years apart Tiffany is missing his touch. She heads to Charlotte to claim her man.
Harrison is finally settled in Charlotte. He has a job he loves, his sister close by, great friends, and an awesome agreement going with Sophia.
Can Sophia ever want more from Harrison than just sex? Has Harrison fallen in love or just lust with Sophia?
After all this time and hurt feelings, is he really meant to be with Tiffany? Can Harrison manage to let his guard down and find his way back to Tiffany? Will Tiffany be satisfied with a regular working class mechanic? Or is their relationship in the past and beyond repair?
Beyond repair wraps up the series and we get a more intimate look at Maggie’s brother Harrison and his long time on again off again girlfriend Tiffany. It takes the death of a friend for Tiffany to realize how much Harrison means to her and when she finally does he has moved on. I feel like the Sophia character in the book is very transparent and only there so that Tiffany and Harrison have an obstacle to overcome, Harrison and Sophia are together for nearly 2 years without any form of commitment or love and that doesn’t make any sense to me. If he and Tiffany had such a deep, profound relationship it wouldn’t take 2 years to figure it out. I would give this book a 3 out of 5 stars only because we get to have all the other characters from the other books in it and get updated on all their lives. I enjoyed the character Harrison, it just didn’t make sense that he would waste 2 years of his life on someone that told him repeatedly they didn’t want commitment from him.
and the prequel Novella to Restore my Heart is a sneak peak on what Dina suffered before Ryder~
Crash…..a crash ended it all and started it all. Dina Fowler is attending college with her long time best friend Maggie Lawson. Life is good and carefree. Until the crash that changed it all. Her freshman year ends with the loss of her parents in a car accident, spiraling Dina into a deep depression. Secluding herself as she picks up the pieces to her life, slowly she finds the only person she has left is Maggie.
Chance encounters sometimes make the most incredible moments, other times they crash and burn. A chance encounter brings Michael barreling into a lost and vulnerable Dina’s life. Playing on every weakness she has, he weasels his way into her heart. Slow build up to the hell that was soon to become Dina’s daily nightmare. Her parents are gone. She wants out but has no idea how to escape her new reality.
Can she find her way out? Or will she be lost completely burning in her own personal hell?
This book is intended for adults 18+ due to language and content. This book is centered around an abusive relationship, if you don’t want to face that do not read this book.
Broken. Battered. Not defeated. This is not a pretty story, wrapped in a nice package. This is a real story. Parts of this story are my very own. Defeated by the hands and words of a man, I am no more. This is a story of how easily the warning signs are overlooked. An outsider can easily say, “How do women stay in abusive relationships?” They don’t understand, it starts in little ways, a slow build up, by the time you are aware, it can be too late.
Little about the author~
Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming. Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice. Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
