Life can go from awesome to total shit in the blink of an eye. For me, it will be forever changed. My name is PFC Jameson Carter, and I am a United States Marine, or I was until a bomb detonated and took half of me with it. The only thing that kept me alive was the woman I had waiting for me back at home. 
How do you go from being a complete person to being half of something? How can I be anything more than half of what I used to be? How do I survive when the one person I counted on and lived for, leaves? 
For Samantha Blalock life is easy. She helps repair people like me, people who lose limbs. I’ve known Samantha for a long time. I can see she isn’t the same though; she’s changed. She’s hiding something. She's always there to help others but will she accept help herself? Can we help each other through these trying times in our lives? Or does the fact remain that we are both irreparable?

Nikki's 5 Star Review of Irreparable
This debut book from Amanda Lanclos was amazing the writing and flow of the story had me from the very first page I just couldn't put it down. The main character Jameson has been through hell fighting for his country in Afghanistan seeing things no-body should have to see, after coming home due to injuries he sustained on the front line things get no easier for him with the break down of his relationship, then in walks Samantha hid childhood best friend and immediately things start to look up. Samantha has her own demons to deal with but together they can get through it. 
You would think that because I am a Marine that life isn’t that hard to live. I’d like to tell you that you couldn’t be more wrong. War is hell on earth. I have seen so many things that will haunt me for the rest of my life. No matter how much I try to forget the light fading from someone’s eyes, I cannot. My life is one determined by the mind. I wake up every day to fears of what will trigger the turmoil that sends me into overdrive. My life is depicted by sounds and colors and things that make me less of a man. Who am I, well I am CPL Blake Johnson. I am a United States Marine and I am living with post-traumatic stress disorder. If it weren’t for Anna, the sunshine in my life things would be much harder than they are.
Being a cosmetologist is not the easiest job for me, and after losing my best friend to her inner demons. I am bound and determined to not lose the man I love as well. They say in my line of profession you are more than what you claim. You are a therapist, a shrink, a person that listens to anything and everything. I am not that person. I have so much built inside me I think I may be about to explode. I hope that this isn’t true because my heart picked someone that happens to be as inconsolable as I feel.Who am I? Well, my name is Anna Kleinpeter. I am just trying to live my life one moment at a time and praying that I don’t mess it up. 

Nikki's 5 Star review of Inconsolable
Book 2 in the Wounded Souls series is Blake and Anna's story. We first meet Blake in book 1 when he was saved by his best friend Jameson Carter when a bomb exploded while they were serving in Afghanistan as Marines. Jameson lost both his legs and they saw the rest of their group killed. Blake feels guilty that he survived while others didn't, or were injured, he is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome but instead of getting the help he needs he turns to drink and sex with women that he doesn't even know then he meets Anna. She's Jamison's ex fiancee Mary-Beth's best friend, but when Anna's world is shook by tragedy can the pull each other back to the here and now and both get the life they deserve?
Another fantastic read by Amanda Lanclos.

My name is Skylar Montgomery, and I always promised myself I would never end up like my mother. Relying on a man that thought beating a woman was the only way to go, and for a while there I hadn’t ended up like her. Now, at twenty-one years old, I have become just like my mother, until that one night. I left, made my way to my grandmothers in the small town of Hickory and I never looked back. Things couldn’t be better in this small town, until he walks into my life, and pretty much turns it upside down. 

Who is he? Luke Blalock, all American country boy with beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair that could make any girl swoon. He’s a gentleman, but he also attracts all the girls, and I just don’t know if I can compete with it. I do what I have to, to make ends meet; but when and if he finds out what it is I do will he still look at me with the desire I see in his eyes, or will he find it unbelievable?

Nikki's 5 Star Review of Unbelievable
Luke and Skyler both have secrets but from the moment Luke lays eyes on her he is determined she will be his. Skyler tries to resist Luke but his perseverance wears her down. They are made for each other but what will happen when their secrets are revealed. 

Life is getting better everyday until they find out something that could tear it all apart. In the heat of the moment will they be able to save their marriage and each other? Or will the unexpected surprise be even more than what they bargained for?

Nikki's 5 Star Review of Unexpected
I'm a massive fan of Amanda's Wounded Souls series so I was super excited to read this novella and it didn't disappoint.
Heather and Declan have been married for 10 years and have an 8 year old adopted daughter who they love more than anything. Life hasn't always been great for them and when Heather starts to feel unwell and fears the worst could some unexpected news on Christmas Eve be the blessing they've been waiting for. A short and sweet read the perfect addition to this series. 

Mason Lockhart has always been the quiet one, the one who never let his emotions show. It was better to be that way when you moved around from foster home to foster home. When he finally found a place he fit in, he was frightened it would all disappear. As if he would awaken from a dream and realize he was still living the nightmare. Until the day that he met Kate Jackson. That’s when he finally felt alive. He finally had a purpose in life, and she was it.
Kate Jackson always had the life she wanted. She married her High school sweetheart, had a child and thought nothing bad would ever come her way. Then the knock every Military wife dreads sends her world into a spiral she can’t seem to escape. After Mason Lockhart comes waltzing in, she learns that life doesn't always turn out the way you expect it to. She tries to avoid Mason and the attraction sizzling between them, but what do you do when what you feel is Undeniable?

Nikki's 5 Star Review of Undeniable
So I have to say that out of all the books in this fabulous series Mason and Kate's story is my favourite and I feel it's the most emotional too. 
Mason hasn't had an easy life he's been separated from his sister and bounced around from one foster family to the next until he found a home where someone loved him but he still felt it could all be taken away from him that is until he lays eyes on Kate.
Kate had the perfect life she was married to her childhood sweetheart and they had a beautiful little boy to complete their family, that is until the dreaded knock at the door that every military wife hopes will never happen and suddenly everything she knows is taken away from her.
Four years later Mason blows into her life like a whirlwind but is she really ready to move on, can Mason persuade her that with him by her side she can once again be happy and in love.
