Last to know-- Maddox & Emma they are such a cute couple who needed someone at the right time. Maddox brings Emma out of her shell and you realize that they are move alike then they knew. Forgiveness & love prevail.
Never too late--Mathias & Remy they are one intense couple who both love with a fierceness. One lie tears them apart but a secret help brings them back together. Mathias is Maddox's twin brother but is the hot headed bad tempered twin (for good reasons). Remy is the other half of Mathias who should have been honest with him when they were in high school but she was so hurt by him. These two finally realize there is no one for them but each other. (As much as a dick Mathias comes across sometimes he really is a good guy. His childhood had made him this way and Remy can see that good side of him. Besides Hayes Mathias would be my next favorite).
In your heart--Ezar & Sadie these two were thrown together because their BFFs Maddox & Emma are dating and leave them alone a lot. They end up being best friend who each love each other but are afraid to take the next step because they don't want to mess up the friendship. Finally, the quit one Ezra kisses Sadie and that's all it takes. In the end what better person to fall in love with than your best friend.
Take a chance--Hayes & Arden this was my favorite story. I love how the he loved Arden & her daughter Mia with everything. There wasn't anything Hayes wouldn't do to prove to Arden he changed his ways and wanted a real relationship. He was able to break down every wall she built around her heart. I'm proud of Arden for trusting Hayes enough to finally share what her ex Todd did. I'm super proud of Hayes stepping up to be a father to a child that wasn't his but loved her like she was.
I love how the Willow Creek boys were famous rocks stars but still lived in the town they grew up in. In the end blood wasn't what made you family...this group will always be there for each other!
Lies That Define Us is about two broken, lost souls; a very emotional love story of discovering the true definition of love.
Ari has been through hell and escaping the place she was held captive for a long time making her a timid girl. All she ever wanted was to be free and to stay far away from the man who’s responsible for kidnapping her and forcing her into marrying someone she doesn’t love. She has to be careful of not being found, or it’ll be the end of her life. These bad guys are involved in drugs and will not let anyone get in the way of their illegal business. As soon as she has the chance to leave it all behind, she takes it without ever looking back.
As for Liam, he is Mr. Hot and Cold. He pushes anyone away that gets closer to his heart; it was broken once and will never be put back together. He can have any women he wants but never commits to a relationship. Having left his hometown took a big chunk of his heart. The hurt he had to deal with in the past is the reason why he’s very closed off.
Ari meets a couple, named Ollie and Talia, who is willing to help in any way they can to get her off the streets since that’s where Ari was found. Before Ari knows it, she’s thrust into Liam who is apathetic, self-pitying, and a temperamental guy. Together they somehow make it work living under the same roof. With the bickering back and forth, the tension between the two makes you want to keep reading. The unbearable sexual agitation made me more anxious to dive into the depth of their emotions. From there both Ari and Liam’s lives start to unravel, the once long-kept secrets are slowly revealed as they both get to know each other.
As they both struggle over the chaos that the people in their past lives have created. Ari thought her freedom was right in the palm of her hands but she was wrong. Will Liam be there to catch her when she falls and prove to her that what he feels is real?
I highly recommend this book to all readers who’d want to be held captive until the last page.
REVIEW IS ALSO ON FOUR CHICKS FLIPPING PAGES
Last to Know- Here we meet Maddox and Emma, the youngest of the love duet this series give us as this is a teenage love. Maddox is a hoot, he's the cocky boy that you cannot help but love. Emma is a hippie book loving girl who has no experience with boys. Maddox is beyond sweet, and goes out of his way to give Emma the summer to remember. He has a secret though, and Emma is the last to now. Does the secret tear them apart? You have to read to find out.
Never Too Late- Mathias and Remy. This story is set 7 years later from book 1. There is a lot of heat in this book. Mathias is Maddox twin brother, but other than looks, they have nothing in common. Mathias is an arrogant sulking man still trying to recover from his past. Remy is his high school sweetheart that comes home to help family. They reconnect, but it's not all butterflies and rainbows. They are the most explosive couple, but the love is so thick you can feel it in the pages of the book.
In Your Heart-Ezra and Sadie.. The author had me laughing out loud with the first page of this book. Sadie is Emma’s best friend but she is a spitfire who has no worries to let you know how she feels. Hilarious is an understatement. Ezra is the quiet one who spends a lot of time internalizing his life. Sadie finds herself in a bind and calls the one friend she knows will come through for her, Ezra. They are friends, but there is more. Is it love or lust? That is what they need to find out.
Take a Chance- Hayes and Arden. Hayes is so funny. A child at heart, but a man in every other way. Arden finds her way into his heart, but she is scared because he is the rebellious of the 4 friends, and she not only has to worry about her heart, but the heart of her daughters as well. Hayes does not give up and fights to show Arden he is ready to settle down from his party nights and one night stands. This book has the most suspense as Arden’s past comes back haunt her, but Hayes proves to be the man he is as he does not leave her side.
What I liked most about this series is the family dynamics between the 4 friends as well as the woman they bring into their life. I also loved how the pacing of each booked flowed with every couple. Each book might be about a specific couple, but you get everyone in every book. If you loved Maddox and Emma like I did, you don't have to say goodbye with book 1, because you get plenty more in books 2-4. Trust me when I say you won't be disappointed with the series. The best part of a box set, you don't have to wait, the next book is waiting for you. Read as an ARC for an honest review for Alpha Book Club.
I read this series over the last 18 months or so and have loved these characters. The bonus scenes in this book made me realize how much more I’m going to miss them now that their series is complete, but it also helped shed some light on things that come about in the books as well as the spin off series with the kids of the band members.
I love all of the guys, but after reading all four books and the bonus materials, Maddox still holds an extra special place in my heart. I think it’s his kid-like attitude that I admire so much (since my whole life is about as opposite as that as it can get!) In the bonus materials, I read things that made me swoon and made me amazed. He is just the ultimate drummer boyfriend!
Without giving anything away that you don’t know from reading the books, this is my favorite quote from the bonus materials. This is Mathias talking to Remy before their baby boy is born:
“Just admit it, Rem, the baby’s first word will not be mom or dad. It’s going to be ****, because I f***ing love saying the word ****.”
I am missing these guys and gals all over again and hope that someday soon I’ll have time to do a full re-read because they are great people!!
(Below is a brief synopsis of my reviews for each book individually)
Last To Know
4 out of 5 stars
When they meet, Maddox doesn’t tell Emma who he is and their relationship is full of adventures and life and really brings Emma out of her normal and into the world in a big way. She is so inexperienced that every time they do something, it’s her first time...even eating in certain restaurants and enjoying certain music.
When I finished the book, I had tears rolling down my face. Happy tears from the story line and having been able to enjoy Maddox and Emma’s relationship. Sad tears knowing the story was over and I wouldn’t get to spend my evenings with them anymore. Maddox and Emma are some of my favorite fictional characters and I hope that many, many more people will have the chance to enjoy them as well.
Never Too Late
4 out of 5 stars
This novel was much more sexy than the first. The characters in this novel constantly had me wanting the best for everyone. The emotions were so far and wide that I found myself feeling something with every page.
Mathias is just plain swoon-worthy! I can’t help but get goosebumps when I read this quote:
“It’s a rare kind of love, and one that should be celebrated and embraced, so that’s what I did, because trying to pretend it didn’t exist was f***ing impossible.”
I am really enjoying Ms. Smeltzer’s writing style and can’t wait to see what happens with the band next!
In Your Heart
4 ½ out of 5 stars
I love all of the Willow Creek guys, but Ezra really got to me. His heart was so big and so open that I just couldn’t help but fall in love with him, too.
I think these guys might have some of the best book boyfriend quotes I’ve read. At 9%, Ezra had me swooning with this simple quote when he was trying to comfort Sadie:
“tears aren’t a sign of weakness, but of strength of the heart. They show you care and caring is never a bad thing.”
However, at the same time, I loved this book because we really got to hang out and spend time with our other favorite Willow Creek couples. Knowing that Maddox and Emma were getting married was so much fun and to watch Sadie and Emma’s relationship get renewed was also good for the story. Knowing how protective Mathias is of Remy and his baby was comical and still exactly what I would have expected. I can’t wait to read Hayes’ story and find out just how great he can be, too.
Take A Chance
4 out of 5 stars
I am so sad that this series is what seems like over now. I have loved every one of the Willow Creek boys and Hayes was no exception. I did not always like Arden as much as some of the other Willow Creek girls, but she did finally grow on me and I found myself only wanting the very best for the couple.
I loved that Hayes was funny, cocky, protective and just such a swell guy. He was an amazing guy with Mia (Arden's daughter), but when he was being his usual goofy self, that's when I really loved him the most:
I smiled. "So...are you going to feed me on this date or let me starve?"
"Baby, I'm a feast for your eyes, isn't that enough?" He jested.
But then again, he could put the swoon on and totally have me melting before him:
"...you're all I want and what I feel for you is never going to go away. And maybe it's too soon to say I love you, but I know I do. I love you. I love you so damn much that it scares me more than anything else ever has."
Book #1: Last To Know
Hmm..well that was interesting. But It was amazing.
Maddox and Emma what a couple. I mean Emma is everything that is not a girly girl, she is indeed different but it is in a way that is endearing. Maddox is quite honestly a very open person, well one side of him.
This story had me going aww and that’s sweet in parts and it just kept building and building. The relationship that blossoms throughout this book is special and is relateable at times. A teenager meets a boy and slowly sees a side to him that she grows to like then eventually love. Emma is a special girl, can play piano and write, perfect match for Maddox. Maddox is the attentive boyfriend and possessive but not to possessive. He has a soft and sweet side that sticks out more than the other.
If you want a teen romance that has its great up moments and a big down moment then this is the book to read. Maddox and Emma are not easily forgotten and I cant wait to see what else lies ahead for them in the future because great things seem like they could come from these two once they put there heads together and make things happen.
Book #2: Never Too Late
Very very emotional.
This book throws you into soo many moods and emotions throughout that I almost never got bored with it.
Mathias Wade, the brooding singer of Willow Creek and twin brother to Maddox Wade the drummer for the group. Quiet and Lethal is how I would describe him in a few words. He is guarded and doesn’t open to many people in the world but that all changes when he sees her again.
Remy Parker, Fiesty and sassy, the woman that will bring mathias to his knees, again. She has endured so much over the course of seven years that it would be hard not to judge her or blame her for some of the actions that she takes in this book. Ultimately, once she sees Mathias again her plan almost works but then she changes course, is it for the better or will it end up worst for her in the long run?
This book is very very feelsy, and I by that I mean you can relate to how each of them is feeling at different times in the book. I loved this book and these two and you even get to see more of Emma and Maddox throughout not to mention Ezra and Hayes as well, oh yeah and cant forget Sadie. Now that’s a story I need to get into.
Book #3: In Your Heart
Yes! I have found my favorite Willow Creek boy, Ezra Collins!
Ezra Collins, brother of Maddox and Mathias, well kind of. I wont even go into that story there, you need to read the first 3 books for that one. Ezra is the quiet one, unlike Mathias he is almost open but still guarded and quiet and doesn’t speak his mind as much as everyone.
Sadie Westbrook, best friend to Emma and a best friend that anyone would be lucky to have on there side. Forced to uproot her life because of a certain douche canoe, BTW braden you suck!, Sadie moves in with her best friend, insert Ezra. To be completely honest I seen this coming since book 1 and I was hoping with fingers crossed for this book and these two. I was disappointed in Never To Late when I found out about her but I am soo happy with the outcome here! This series is definitely turning into a favorite of mine that’s for sure.
Book #4: Take A Chance
Joshua Hayes..enough said! i picked entirely too soon before!
There may be a tie for my first favorite in this series, ah hell who am I kidding, Hayes is it! He is my one!
I ultimately loved this book. Hayes and Arden are just everything and wittle Mia, she just makes your heart want to burst out of your chest.
Joshua Hayes, ultimate player from Willow Creek gone soft and the committed type after one night with a normal woman with a normal life, insert Arden. These two are amazing and I can admit that this story is my favorite out of the bunch. The family dynamic that comes from this story oozes real life and it couldn’t have been more real at times.
Coming into a family as an outsider is a tough thing but Hayes took It in strides and he did it so amazingly and I fell even more for him at that point. This story is raw and real. If you want to fall in love with the characters and swoon over them and hang on for an emotional ride then this is the one for you. I am glad that I read this series and it ended the way it did, do I want more from this group? Hell yes! But too much would make it boring and I don’t want that. Love stories can only go on for so long before its drowned out. These ended at the right time for everyone. Through and through very enjoyable reads.
