Product description

Product Description

We all have choices in life… paths to take… roads to follow….
It’s on those journeys that fate finds us and takes us where we need to be… Without a second glance we can be taken away from things we know… "people we love" and given a new life...
One that can change us… save us…
What would you do if fate dropped you at a crossroads? Would you go back? Or would you run like hell the other way?

*Author's Note: This book is told from a different point of view and is said to be more like a prequel to Adjournment. This book will also answer a lot of questions you were left with from Adjournment. Sidney and Simon's story continues in Sacrifice and End Game.

Favorite Quotes:

“I’ve never heard a man speak that way to a woman. Well, not to one like her. I thought men flocked to women like her, falling at their feet in hopes of getting a peek up the whore’s skirt.”

“This isn’t a car, this is scrap metal held together with wire and chewing gum.”

“Everyone has a story to tell, they just need to find the right person to tell it to.”

“Because when I looked at you, I saw my entire world and it was as though someone turned on a light switch. I just wanted to be the one to turn yours on.”

“I have loved you since I tricked you into letting me ahead of you in line, and I will love you until I can trick you into letting me die first, because I don’t want to live a second without you.”

“Morgan, my love. When you marry me it will because you asked me… or because you were medicated,”

My Review:

This is one of those special and happy occasions when the sequel outshines the debut. I am thrilled to report that Book 2 Hanging Pawns, is a vast improvement in the readability and quality of Ms. Vallis’s writing. The characters are far more likable, witty, and interesting as we are not seeing them through Sidney’s untrusting filter, but through Mea’s. I adore Mea and Josh as a couple, and also relished the dynamic between the other two couples. The mystery and intrigue continues to deepen Hanging Pawns with more clues and secrets being exposed. I couldn’t put this book down and enjoyed the clever dialog, bickering, and humorous banter, as well as all the twists and intersecting and overlapping of life spaces, and look forward to unraveling more surprises in the 2 remaining hefty tomes.

I’ll be honest. This series is driving me a little bit crazy. In a good way I assure you! The women in this book are wildly hilarious and a little bit crazy as well. But the secrets and mysteries are beginning to make me question my own sanity a little bit. I’m dying to get through the next two book and figure out just what the heck is going on!

This book is told from an alternate POV that is neither Sidney or Simon, yet it answered a few of the questions I had rolling around in my mind about them. At the same time, it brought so many new questions and mysteries into play. This story is a small aside that takes us back in time a few years for a glimpse into Mea and Josh’s relationship. It also ties Mea to Sidney and Simon with a shocking twist I never saw coming. With each new revelation and twist, I find myself trying to re-orient myself and figure out which way is up and trying to decipher the hints that at times seem to be written in a secret code. As the plot thickens, so do the secrets, twists & revelations, leaving me on the edge of my seat and wondering if I’m losing my mind! In short, this story is making me a little bit crazy.

4 stars

This is Josh's and Mae's story and it is quick and is just a good romance story. I read this in about an hour and I truly loved it. I love Morgan and Molly, Chase, Dean, and Simon. They .make this story enjoyable and you have a lot of laughs in this book. I love seeing the fun side of romance and the little arguments that really aren't arguments. It always puts a smile on my face. You also have the drama here and there and some of the things didn't feel completed in this story, even with Josh and Mae. That's where I felt a little left down on. But in all I loved how there were secrets, but really there weren't, I enjoyed the romance between Josh and Mae. Always liked the love at first site thing, but with that it still seemed a little off, so I'm thinking there might be more coming for all of them in the next books.

Mae, she broke away from her family. I think she is very strong and that she needed to. She needed to find herself, and I think she did in this book. She became this beautiful, independent woman that she could be proud of. Being timid at first drew me into her character, but when she became stronger in the story she was even more of the woman I knew she would end up being. Josh was this perfect gentleman from the beginning. He gave Mae everything she needed to grow and didn't push himself on her too quickly. He treated her like a princess and that what he got in the end. I loved everything about this couple and how they didn't just jump into something they both weren't ready for.

This series so far has been really good. I love all the characters. I also love this author. I like how she stages the chapters, with a quote first. It makes you see the chapter so much clearer and for that when I'm reading it I look for what it links up with in the chapter. Its a great way to encourage the reader to see things they may have missed in the story without knowing. I cant wait to read the next book in this series, it could only get better.

When I read book one Adjournment, I thought the book okay. Nothing to write home about and it was long winded. Well Book 2 Hanging Pawns was great. I really enjoyed it.

I wanted to cry for Mea Andrews. Mea so wanted love from her mother and she just wasn’t going to get it. Well Mea did finally get love and it was from someone she kept trying to push away Josh Anderson. I am so in love with Josh. He didn’t let Mea push him away. Thank goodness.

I love books that make you feel good and when I got to the ending I knew I immediately I wanted to read the next book in this series, Sacrifice. This book was not an ARC and I give Hanging Pawns 4.5 Stars.

She did it again.....😊

This is the second book by this Author I have read and she does not disappoint!!'

Her characters are real and the emotions are heartfelt!!! She has beautiful, engaging characters who fill the pages with laughter,family, friendship and love. Enjoyed Mea and Josh's romance.

But I cannot wait for the continuation of Simon (my heart aches for him) and Sidney's story (first book I read from this author was their story, A MUST READ). Those two are very special.

So if you haven't read Adjournment, DO it's fantastic!!!

A great read that keeps you on your toes. It keeps you interested right from the start and throughout the rest of the series. It is not only suspenseful but very funny. He author did an excellent job with the details throughout and definitely left you hanging at the end of each book until you reached the end of the series. It was a great escape from reality. I can't wait to read more works from this author.
I was given an ARC for my honest review.

The series overall is great but the first books leave tons of questions & a confusion as to what actually happened in the back story. The final book answers everything & more with some unexpected extras! Don't get frustrated & stop before you finish the series, like I almost did a few times! Worth every second, the final book was impossible to put down!
