CAPTURING PEACE by Molly McAdams: Review & Giveaway







CAPTURING PEACE (Sharing You #0.5)





SYNOPSIS:



Coen Steele has spent the last five years serving his country. Now that he's back, he's finally ready to leave behind the chaos of the battlefield and pursue his lifelong dream. What he wasn't expecting was the feisty sister of one of his battle buddies—who has made it obvious that she wants nothing to do with him—to intrigue him in a way no woman has before.

Reagan Hudson's life changed in the blink of an eye six years ago when she found out she was pregnant and on her own. Since then, Reagan has vowed never to let another man into her life so that no one can walk out on her, or her son, again. But the more she runs into her brother's hot and mysterious friend, the more he sparks something in her that she promised herself she wouldn't feel again.

Can two people with everything to lose allow themselves to finally capture the love they both deserve?




REVIEW:

         



Capturing Peace was my first Molly McAdams book and I will definitely be adding her to my Authors to snatch up list!  I really loved the writing style and the way Capturing Peace really hooked me in right away and whisked me on an emotional journey.  Coen and Reagan (and the rest of the characters too) really resonated with me and I am still thinking about parts of this book days later (those photographs!)

Capturing Peace tells a beautiful story about how people are able to move past the trauma in their past and learn to trust that the future is whatever you have the courage to reach out and grab.  Coen is a man that isn't afraid to grab what he wants and he earned a place on my Book Boyfriend list!  Reagan wasn't looking for a relationship and was adamantly against letting a man in her life, so the struggle, persistence and care Coen took to get let into her and Parker's life was a great experience.

I love a book that is easy to fall into and get wrapped up in all the characters and Molly McAdams delivers with this start to a new series!  I really enjoyed Capturing Peace and can't wait to see what happens in Sharing You when the series continues in June.

If you have never read a Molly McAdams book (like me) then you are in for a treat!  Capturing Peace captures you with the powerful emotions, the romance and a love story that will make you heavy sigh (if not choke up a bit).  Molly McAdams is definitely an Author to add to your TBR pile.  If you are a Molly McAdams fan then you know all this already and will fall in love with Coen and Reagan for sure!

MEET THE AUTHOR:


Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
