Brady…
I have lived in Hollis my entire life. All of my memories are here. The good and the bad. I wouldn’t change anything about this town. My life is carefree and I live it without regrets. Sure, I’ve made mistakes…some of them I see every day…but I wouldn’t change those either. I’m just not meant to settle down. No woman will ever get the best of me. They’re just lucky to get part of me.

Lilly…
I don’t get the attraction about Hollis. Not at all…but it did bring Madden Steele here and his brothers followed suit. I at least have to give it a try…even if it’s temporary. The Steele brothers wouldn’t be here if it didn’t hold some attraction…and I can admit there’s definitely one good thing this town has going for it. For all I know, this town could change my life.

Mindy’s Review:

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Brady has lived in the small town of Hollis his entire life. He has his friends, the bar and all the girls that he wants. Brady is living the carefree life with no worries. That is until a very special woman walks right into his life.

Lilly has ran to the small town of Hollis after finding out that she was adopted. She is not running away because she is scared or mad. She wants to confront her brothers. Wanting to get to know them first she takes a job as a waitress at the local bar.

This is the second book in the Heart of Hollis series. I truly loved the first one and could not wait for this one to come out. I was not disappointed at all. Lilly is just what Brady needed in his life. The chemistry is hot! I read this book in one day because I could not put it down.

All I know is I need Hollis to be real and I need all of the characters to be my friends. Because I love, love, love all of them and I really love the small town feel of Hollis. I cannot wait to see what else comes out of this small town.

Review of Marking Madden (Hearts of Hollis Book 1) by Nicole Dykes and J.L. Leslie

mm

Sometimes love is unexpected..

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 167 pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

Jade…

I came to Hollis to leave my past. I couldn’t get away fast enough. I made new friends and I found a new life. I even found love. Of course, there was heartbreak too, but I’m tough. I can handle it. But I don’t know if I can handle him.

Madden…

She said yes and turned my world upside down. She was supposed to be mine. Not his. Not my brother’s. So I left and I haven’t looked back. I never expected to find someone here who’d make me forget. Someone unexpected. Someone who would mark my heart forever.

Madden Steel has grown up with the finest things in life. He has been shaped to work for his father’s company with his brothers. When the woman he loves accepts a wedding proposal from his brother he knows he just needs to get away for a while.  So what does he do? He steals money from his father and runs to the smallest town that he can find.

Jade lives in a very small town in Texas. She found the town of Hollis when she wanted to get away from her upbringing and start a new life. Working as a bartender at the only bar in town she knows everyone. When a mysterious man walks into the bar to rent a room she is instantly drawn and wants to know all about him.

Madden and Jade becomes friends pretty quick. Jade is still upset about a past break up and Madden is running away from his family troubles. The best way to get over the past is to rub it in their face. Madden helps Jade make her ex-boyfriend jealous but what they didn’t count on was having feelings for each other.

This was a very fun read. I was unable to put it down once I started reading. The chemistry between Madden and Jade is scorching and the storyline makes you feel as you are part of the small town and all of its drama. I cannot wait to see where this series takes us!

My Favorite Moment: I really enjoyed the night of the street dance.
