Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Full Circle series special?

A - When I began to write these books, I wanted to create something that portrayed exactly the kind of books I enjoy. My top picks are usually young adult contemporary with a hint of mystery, new adult romance, southern literature, and books with real life situations. Basically, anything with love, real life, drama, and heartache. Think a YA Nicholas Sparks novel.

The Full Circle books are a great combination of these genres. You'll find the series focuses on dating, drama, and real life situations, with a hint of mystery and suspense.
Overall, the Full Circle series is designed to keep you turning the pages- Imagine Pretty Little Liars colliding with The Longest Ride.

Q - What order should I read the books?

A - These books must be read in the following order:
- Losing Charley
- Finding Charley
- Loving Charley

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?

"The Full Circle Series is full of heartache, drama, and healing, all tied up in a sweet Southern bow." Jillian Dodd, USA TODAY Bestselling Author

"The Full Circle Series will wind its way around the reader's heart. Casey Peeler's writing will capture your attention, compelling you to continue reading until the very end." ~ Nicole Reed, New York Times Bestselling Author

If you enjoy young adult romances that are filled with real world situations that feature positive moral and values the Full Circle Series is for you.

Q - Can readers get the whole series in one set?

A - Sure. I’ve put together the Full Circle Series Box Set. It will save your wallet a few bucks. Check out my author page here at Amazon for more details, and a full list of my available titles.

About the Author

Casey Peeler grew up in North Carolina and still lives there with her husband and daughter. Growing up Casey wasn't an avid reader or writer, but after reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston during her senior year of high school, and multiple Nicholas Sparks' novels, she found a hidden love and appreciation for reading. That love ignited the passion for writing several years later, and her writing style combines real life scenarios with morals and values teenagers need in their daily lives. When Casey isn't writing, you can find her near a body of water listening to country music with a cold beverage and a great book.

Wow! This book was amazing. It's really hard for me to write a non spoiler review, but no worries I won't include any spoilers.

In the beginning of the book Charley is dating Dylan. Something happens and she ends the relationship by totally avoiding him. Cash (who Charley calls Cash Money) is her rock. Charley describes Cash as her "knight in an F250 and a pair of Carhartts." I love that description of Cash. Charley goes off to college and Cash stays on the farm. Charley loves Cash but she wants to experience college and find herself. Cash is fine with that. Cash tells her, "I am willing to wait, continue being your best friend, boyfriend, continue being your rock, but I'm not leaving you ever again."

While at college Charley becomes friends with the girls on her dorm floor. She also meets Joe. Joe seems to be the perfect person for Charley to explore college with. Charley goes back and forth between Joe and Cash. Both Joe and Cash know about each other and form a friendship.

The characters were well written, which allows the reader to bound quickly with them. The end of the book took a turn I never expected. There's a huge cliffhanger. You are definitely left wanting more.

HASH(0xa21fd33c) out of 5 stars 4.5 Country lovin' Stars! Nov. 18 2013
By Lydia - HEA Bookshelf | MBMB - Published on

"...a night I thought was going to be special has turned into the biggest nightmare of my life."

One night.
It only took one night for Charley's life to change. What she thought she knew was no longer true. Decisions she thought she was sure of were quickly changing. After graduating high school, Charley decided to go off to a different College than what she had originally planned. She was looking to start fresh, to be independent.... free. What Charley did not know was that no matter where she went, her past would follow. Her fears would catch up with her.

Luckily for her, she had a wonderful guy in her life. Cash. Oh, Cash. I loved him from the get-go. He's 100% country and damn sexy. Cash was more than Charley's "best friend since they were kids".... he was more than her recent "ex-boyfriend". Cash was her rock, her constant, what kept her whole, and Charley was well aware. But, she was also set on experiencing the "college life" without being tide down. And I get that. Hell, I could relate a lot to the things she did while at College with her new friends, the "Kluft Girls". BUT, I loved Cash too much to completely agree with her pushing him away.

"Charley, I'm not sure what you want, but I know what I want. You. I am willing to wait, continue being your best friend, boyfriend, continue being your rock, but I'm not leaving ever again. I love you and always will."

*Sigh* See??? Cash was just freaking PERFECT... at least for me. This is why I found myself feeling frustrated with Charley, but at the same time, not. And here's why.

“Charley, you are truly beautiful. I don’t know what you are hiding or scared of, but I want to know you. All of you.” - Joe

Joe was what Charley called a Yankee. They met in class where they ended up being paired up for an important project. Joe was VERY hot, athletic (played lacrosse) and down right dreamy. Simply put, I liked him. Ha! I liked him a lot, which is why I never got fully pissed at Charley for not staying committed to Cash. In fact, during every Joe-Charley scene, I was Team Joe. Yet, during every Cash-Charley scene, I was Team Cash. Dammit! Like I said, I liked them both. So basically, I swooned for both of them but felt bad, too. You see, this was a weird "love triangle" for me. Both Cash and Joe knew about each other and although they weren't exactly thrilled about the whole situation, they were okay with it. I guess it helped that they both knew from the very beginning that Charley wanted to be officially single, but still, I kind of had a tough time wrapping my head around it. In all fairness, Joe and Cash (MY new book boyfriends, FYI), wanted to keep Charley safe. That was what mattered to them.

This book was a solid 4 Stars read for me until the end. That ending surprised me and left me desperately wanting more, which is why I decided to give it 4.5 Stars instead. Not only does it end in a cliffhanger, but it ends just when a HOLY CRAP moment smacks you right in the face!!! No wonder Bethany was flipping out when she first read and reviewed it. Hahaha!! But seriously, I was very surprised with how it ended and I'm VERY MUCH looking forward to the sequel. This is the type of book that after finishing it, you will probably want to go over certain details and discuss the whole thing with friends. Hell, that's what Bethany and I did when I finished it the other night! And that was just another plus for me. Overall, "No Turning Back" was a fun, light story that I truly enjoyed reading.

"You are what makes my heart beat. I love you. No matter what you say, I will always love you, and I will not let you go. I will fight for you. Now, tomorrow, and forever."

HASH(0xa28ff6a8) out of 5 stars No Turning Back Oct. 1 2013
By Michelle@Book Briefs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
No Turning Back starts off crazy. There was no introductory get to know the characters part. There was just a very intense start to the story and right off the bat we have someone to hate- Dylan. Most of the book is about how Charley deals with the fallout of what Dylan did to her. Dylan isn't even in most of the book, Charley dumps him and never talks to him again, but it's like his presence is everywhere, affecting everything that she does. It's hard for me to sum up my feelings about No Turning Back because it wasn't that I disliked the book. I thought it was a well written and interesting story, there were just some aspects of it that didn't work for me. The tough part is that I can see where this would be a great book for so many people.

Charley was the main problem for me in this story. And I hated that. I am such a character driven reader that when I encounter a main character that I want to like so bad and then I just can't seem to mesh with, it makes me a little sad. The book is told in first person through Charley's eyes and sometimes I was a little confused as to her motivations and what she was doing. It seemed choppy in parts, but the weird thing was I didn't think the writing was choppy, it seemed like Charley herself was. She would make these decisions and I didn't know why she did. She would just kind of skip some of the steps, which made for a confusing read at times. But I wanted to like her so much. I felt bad for what happened to her before college and I wanted to see so much growth with her as a person. Charley is a sweet southern girl, and I loved the way she was with her friends. I just couldn't seem to get past the way she was with Cash and Joe. She jumped back and forth between the two of them so many times that I lost count. She would swear up and down that she couldn't be with Cash but then whenever she saw him she was kissing him and telling him she loved him. And then the next day she would be back at school and with Joe 24/7. Charley started to grow on me as the book went on. I ended up liking her, but I never quite grew to love her. I am holding out hope for her in the second book though.

I loved Cash and Joe. They were both great guys. I didn't even know which one I wanted Charley to choose because they were both so awesome. I just didn't want her stringing both of them along until she made her choice. I thought that the two of them and Charley's school friends, "the Kluf girls", made the story. They were my favorite part of the book. The girls were hilarious and the guys were always there for Charley. They never let her go through anything alone. They were a bit overprotective at parts, but it was cute. The secondary characters outshone Charley for me in No Turning Back.

No Turning Back is very conversational and an easy read. The language is very informal and I can see a lot of people appreciating that. I thought it was more of a young adult feel than new adult though. While I didn't love No Turning Back, I can see where it is a book that a lot of people will love. There are two great guys in the story and an interesting plot. And I didn't see the ending coming at all. It completely took me by surprised and I really liked that. I was kind of just coasting along reading this book liking it, but also feeling kind of meh about it and then that ending came out of nowhere. It made me interested in the second book. I want to know just what everyone is going to go from here with this twist thrown in.

*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for my review. I was not compensated for my thoughts.

HASH(0xa21fe9bc) out of 5 stars Loved the romance! Jan. 9 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
Eeeek NO!!! How could you end the book like that, Casey?!!!! That’s SO MEAN!!!!!!

Wow okay first I’d like to admit that for the first few chapters I wasn’t swept away by the book but I continued to read and boy was I glad I did!

So the story actually is about country girl Charley, who is dating the bad boy Dylan (God I HATE him! I’d love for a chance to beat him to a bloody pulp). But they break up after a MAJOR event happens between those two. Luckily she has her best friend Cash to help her deal with all that. And then Cash and Charley become a couple for a while and that was soooooooooooooo cute! Anyway Charley breaks it off with him when she decides she wants to go to a different college and because she also wants to be able to see who she is without a man in her life.

And then she goes to this small College called Southern, and there she meets hunk-a-dunk Joe, who I loved to bits. And well I think you can all guess the rest. Though the one thing about the story that completely blew me away was the BIG ASS TWIST at the end of the book with a MASSIVE CLIFFHANGER that had me screaming and pulling my hair in frustration.

And about the characters? Well I LOVED the them. Charley is great and I love the way she keeps going despite what happened. And then we’ve got Cash, or Cash Money as Charley lovingly calls him. He’s just the sweetest, kindest most lovable non-existent guy I know and GOD do I feel jealous Charley get him all to himself. And then we have Joe and oh-meee-oh-my I’d jump him in a minute if I got the chance.

So that’s it, that’s all I can say about this book, it was good and god I just can’t stand the fact that I now have to wait God knows how long for the sequel. But it’ll be worth it and I am so looking forward to it!

First let me just say that this is the first book that read from this author.

Just finish reading this book and I love it, this book grab my attention from the first page to the very last one. I couldn't put the book I did not wanted to finish it at all, I cant wait to read the next one. Let me just say that this book had me in a really good mood I just love it.

Love the characters and really love how this book turned out to be. by just reading this book it gives you the filling that the book is so full of life. and it just want to make you be a part of the story.

The story begging with Charlie, Charlie goes through a bad experience with her ex boyfriend, that's when she decide to move far away from her home to start college. Charlie loves to swim, she wants to experience collage the same way as everyone else once they are a fresh man, she end up being part of the swimming team, end up having some amazing friends that she knows they have her back when ever she need them, their is also the love of her, life and her best friend who is Cash Money, Cash has always being their for her on the good times and the bad times.

Love how their is no secrets between Cash and Charlie, and how Cash knows everything about her, he knows when she is not ok, when she is happy, and most Important he knows how she truly feel for him, I just love Cash he is such a sweet heart with a temper, and he understand that Charlie wants to experience everything about collage, and that means Joe the one that she end up having a crush on but also turned out to be a friend that she get to trust and get to know him, but oh I was loving him into he gave me a surprise and that just change my mind about him.

Love the girls from the swimming team and roommate from the second floor dorms, I love how they all get alone like a big family, I also love Charlie family and the relationship that she has with her parents and how they are always there for her.

I really enjoy this book and love it now I just don't think I could wait for the next book.

HASH(0xa30f7e64) out of 5 stars Very Difficult Read June 19 2014
By Brittany Payne - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I never leave negative reviews as I know how much work and effort goes into a book. This book has a good story line to it which so much could be done with, but the writing was short, choppy sentences that didn't flow. I made it through a good portion of the book and just had to put it down for a while and read something else before picking it back up. The ending just cuts off with no work up etc. As a southerner myself, some of the idioms were typical stereotype that usually doesn't actually happen in the south. This book has great great potential, with the help of an editor and maybe a writing coach to help it flow and be less confusing. There was no difference in Dialogue and the rest of the book, I think if it would have been a bit more differentiated and the characters all had their own speech instead of all talking exactly the same it would have been a lot better.
