Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.

Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.

Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.

But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.

Approaching this book I was exited to learn more about Cole and Everly as well as meeting the new characters too. My thoughts were Would I like this book as much as For Everly?
At 16%  done with Meant for Her: New characters of Sierran and Evan Dorsey an old friend of Cole's coming to play on the atlanta team immediately taken under Baseball Boss Caroline's protective wing. Also enjoying the catch up with Cole & Everly and their married life & pregnancy too.
Hmmm feeling the same "wrong feeling" that Sierra gets about Geoff. . . I mean the poor dogs have good intuition too don't they?

I received an e-arc copy of this book from the Author Raine Thomas free in exchange for my honest review. 
The cover I'd say depicts the two new main characters of Sierra (with the colourful streaks in her hair), Baseball Boss, Caroline's niece and Evan Dorsey a Baseball player. They are in a tender looking pose about to kiss, and there's the baseball glove also on the cover. The byline which pre-fixes the title "If he's not careful, she might just convince him that he's . . " and then the title Meant For Her. I love it!
So would the cover make me pick the book up in a book store? I think I would yes, though I admit to not buying many "romance-y" novels.
So the main characters in this book are Sierra, and Evan. Evan is in a dark place having recently lost his mother. He was extremely close to his mother being as she was his only loving parent. Her dream was to see Evan play baseball for Atlanta.
Evan first meets Sierra though he doesn't know her name or who she is at Cole & Everly's wedding reception.
Evan later goes to speak to Caroline wanting to play for Atlanta, which comes at perfect timing as third baseman Matthew Jensen has been injured so cannot play. 
Caroline organise's for Evan to view a flat in one of the rental properties she owns. That' how he meet's Sierra again as she works for her Aunt showing the rental homes to prospective tenants. Evan feels drawn to Sierra, but immediately shuts down as after losing his mother he doesn't want to ever go through losing someone he loves again. Sierra is very patient and loving with Evan even though at times he is openly rude and harsh in the things he says to her. I don't want to give anymore plot details as this really is a fantastic read that you should discover for yourselves. I will say I loved the parts where Evan tries to impress Sierra and when he lets his emotions free the things he say's and does for Sierra are so romantic, but he can be so dense and obtuse in his actions.
During his time playing for Atlanta Evan is being targeted by what seems to be an angry fan who has a vendetta against him. Evan doesn't take it too seriously until Sierra is threatened. . but will he be in time to save Sierra? So who is the "angry fan" with the vendetta against Evan? Do Evan and Sierra get together? Will Evan stay playing for Atlanta?
I really enjoyed the book, Raine Thomas writes so well and takes you through a whole range of feelings and emotions. You end up really routing for Evan, and his turbulent relationship with Sierra. I loved the ending.
I loved the pace of the book, the slower beginning, then the pace building up and up and flowing at a steady but reasonable pace to the very end.
So did I enjoy the book?  Yes, I really found it a pleasurable, totally enjoyable read.  Would I recommend the book? Yes, though you don't need to have read For Everly first, the sections on Everly & Cole will make more sense if you have done so. Would I read another book in this series? As I have mentioned before Meant For Her & For Everly are actually stand alone reads though they contain some of the same characters. Having said that I would love to read more about some of the other characters in the books too. Would I read other books by Raine Thomas? I already have and yes I'd love to read even more of Raine's books too.

Here are a couple of quotes from fairly early in the book, to illustrate the humor and the girly friendship's Sierra has with her good friend's Zoe and Hannah. I think most of us ladies have had similar giggly conversations with our girlfriend teasing about a male we like!

"Ooo," Hannah giggled. "If you could get your neighbor to say, "No Worries, mate" that would be fun freaking-fantastic"

Poking Hannah in the side, Zoe said, "How cliché. Next you're going to want him to grill another shrimp on the barbie"


So after reading For Everly and loving it so much I did ask Sandra if we had anymore books by this Author to read. We were offered Meant For Her specifically for us both to read and review. So my daughter received and e-arc copy of this one in exchange for both hers and my honest reviews.
The cover fits the book quite well, though kind of gives away that sierra and Evan at least kiss at some point in the book. In one way it was predictable that sierra and Evan get together but I think the book was more about their journey of their relationship and them getting together. I loved the characters. I liked getting an up date of what was happening in the lives of Cole and Everly.
To me the pace of the book was initially quite slow for my tastes, and I was left wondering if I was going to enjoy this book as much as Raine Thomas's other book For Everly. However the pace picked up and flowed at a then faster pace which I enjoyed. I do enjoy books written by Raine Thomas and this is the second book of hers that I have read and enjoyed. Definitely, easily a 5/5!

“There’s something invigorating about autumn in Atlanta,” she said. She shared the same southern accent as Cole, he realized. “It represents promise.”

“Promise for what?”

She shrugged. “Endless possibilities.”

He frowned. What the hell did that mean?

Once again, she took his hand. Her hand was dwarfed by his, but he couldn’t deny that the contact felt nice.

“You looked lost in there, Evan Dorsey. I thought maybe I could do something to help guide you on your way.”

Pulling his hand from hers, he said, “You don’t know anything about me.”

“I don’t need to.” She tilted her head to the side and looked at him with her compelling eyes. “Have you been sick?”

The question made him glance away. He supposed she hadn’t done her research before making this approach. Still, she was closer to the truth than made him comfortable.

Her voice was quiet when she continued, “I ask because your suit looks tailored, but it’s loose on you right now, as though you’ve lost weight. There are dark circles under your eyes, making me think you aren’t sleeping well and probably haven’t been eating right. And your hair is short, like it’s just growing back. Since your scalp is pale, I assume you don’t normally wear your hair that way.”

Jesus, she was observant. Shaking his head, he turned to walk back into the reception.

“I see,” she said. Her tone made him hesitate. “I’m so sorry for your loss, Evan.”

When her slender arms went around him from behind, he didn’t know what to do. No one had ever offered him such a pure gesture of comfort. Everyone who attended the funeral had been too emotionally involved to do so, not that it would have been welcome.

But this hug from a stranger was about to undo him.

He stood frozen in place as she walked around him to face him again. His gaze moved down to her bare feet and noted that her nails were the same shade of purple as the streaks in her hair. Belatedly, he considered how cold she must be.

“I can see that you’re in a dark place,” she said, touching the side of his face. It was just the whisper of a caress, but it made his throat tighten. “It’s good that you honor the memory of this person you loved. But don’t be afraid to live now. What you’ve gone through, it will bring you where you need to be. Even the stars can’t shine without darkness.”

Mesmerized, he didn’t resist when she pulled him down. He closed his eyes when her lips touched his. She kissed him, an expression of comfort more than passion. The taste of sweet champagne lingered when they parted. She smiled again, her dimples teasing him, then turned and walked back inside.

After a moment, he followed her. This woman whose name he didn’t even know had given him more to think about in their few minutes together than anyone had in a long time. For someone who appeared no older than her early twenties, she had incredible insight.

She’d given him a glimpse of light that he hadn’t even known he craved. He supposed the least he could do was thank her.

Returning to the reception, he went looking for her. He figured she’d return to the dance floor, so he started there. After twenty minutes, he had to give up.

She was gone.

Seventeen-year-old Mackenzie Smith is sent away to spend a boring summer at her grandma's. But then she meets Wesley. He tells her exactly what she wants to hear and has information about her past that no one else knows. It's almost like he can read her mind.

Only Wesley isn't who he seems.

By the time Mackenzie discovers his true identity it may be too late. She's in too deep and he won't let her go. Now Mackenzie must call on the strongest power of all in order to save her life.


“Hello Kenzie.”

He turned toward me. I gasped in horror. He was faceless. His face was a black hole with no eyes, nose or mouth, like a shadow. Was this what ghosts looked like? I thought for sure they’d be white like in the movies. “Oh, I’m sorry,” he said. “Is this better?”

His face transformed before my eyes. Black turned into peach colored flesh. It stretched and bent to reveal a cartilage filled nose. Two eyes popped out, and ears broke through the side of his head. Lips, hair, a body, and clothes appeared. My mouth dropped open, and hung loosely as if it had come unhinged. I slapped my hand over it to keep from screaming.

“You don’t need to scared,” he said.

“How did you do that?”

“You think that’s amazing? I can do much more than that.”

I nodded, taking a deep breath. “I think that’s enough for me right now.” He moved toward me, crawling stealthily on the bed like a cat. I moved away from him until I was pinned against the wall. He smiled, revealing blood red gums and a perfect row of white teeth. His pupils were black, and the whites were filled with spidery red and purple veins. My body shook.

“Why are you scared, Kenzie? Don’t you recognize me?”




Mackenzie returns home from the summer with her grandma, certain that Wesley is out of her life for good. Until the nightmares resurface, and strange things start to happen. Is Wesley back? When the danger escalates and threatens those closest to her, Mackenzie must fight to save them. Only this time the evil is more powerful, and Mackenzie is faced with an impossible decision.


“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?” I asked Tanner as I stared down at the foamy rush of water.


I glanced up at Tanner who was staring right at me with a look so intense it caused heat to rise up my neck and spill across my cheeks. Taking a deep breath, I averted my gaze. I reached into my pocket and pulled out my phone with the intention of taking a couple photos.

“So, you’re calling him, huh?” I tried to ignore the jealousy in Tanner’s voice; tried to tell myself it was just a figment of my imagination. I wanted to believe that Tanner only thought of me as a friend, and that he supported my relationship with Isaac. But deep down I knew that wasn’t true.

I shook my head. “No, I was just going to take some pictures.”

Relief swept over his features. He beamed at me. “Here, let me.” He grabbed the phone from my hand. Holding it out in front of us, he pressed his cheek to mine and snapped a shot. He was so close I could smell his aftershave lotion, and the sweat on his skin. My pulse quickened. My heart pounded in my chest. He turned to me, his face inches from mine.

I froze, unable to move or even breathe. His face came closer and somewhere in the back of my mind, alarm bells went off. I knew I should step back, or push him away. But my feet stayed rooted to the ground, like I was a tree on the mountain, a permanent fixture. I could hear the blood rushing through my ears, feel the beating of my heart. The world around us stopped. It was as if we were the only people up here. Tanner’s eyes stared into mine. I swallowed hard, and kept my gaze even.




Mackenzie is looking forward to her eighteenth birthday and upcoming high school graduation. Until an unwelcome visitor from her past appears, threatening her future plans. Will she ever be free? Armed with a new weapon and the boy she loves by her side, Mackenzie prepares to fight. She doesn't realize that she is about to step into the ultimate battle between good and evil, where the stakes are higher than ever before.


“What was that about?” Isaac asked when we got inside the house.


“The way you said hi to your neighbor and then started looking in another direction and said hi again in a weird voice.”

“Oh.” I smiled.

“That’s just how I talk to kids.”

“Why did you do it right now though?” His brows furrowed in a look of utter confusion.

I was starting to get annoyed with this line of questioning. Can’t I say hi to a neighbor boy without getting the third degree? So what if I use an odd voice when talking to kids. Lots of people do. “Cause I was saying hi to the little boy.”

“What little boy?”

Cold slithered up my spine at Isaac’s tone. “The boy sitting next to Mrs. Kelley in the front yard.”

“There was no boy with her.”

I flung open the front door and raced outside, my heart thumping in my chest. Was I going crazy? I was sure I saw a little boy.

Relief flooded me at the sight of the child still sitting in the grass. I gave Isaac a triumphant look. “See. Right there.”

Isaac narrowed his eyes, staring in the direction I pointed. I expected an apology. Instead, he said, “Are you okay?”

“Fine. Why are you acting so weird?”

“Because there is no little boy there.” A chill brushed over my body, causing goose bumps to rise on my flesh. I glanced back at Mrs. Kelley who kept weeding, oblivious to our conversation. She also seemed not to notice the child, even though he practically sat on her legs. The boy’s neck craned to look at me, but he still didn’t smile.

Fearful, I raced back in my house. Why did I see him if no one else did? Who was he? And what was he doing next door?

Where do you get your book plot ideas from? What/Who is your inspiration?
They come from everywhere, sometimes all at once. It’s hard trying to organize my plot ideas and sort them into separate stories or characters. My biggest inspiration comes from real life – taking things that happen or don’t happen the way I’d like and giving the same, but better, experience to a fictional character.

Do you have anybody read your books and give you reviews before you officially release them?
I ask my mom to read just about everything because I know she’ll give me positive feedback, if only because she’s my mom, lol. I also have a couple beta readers that give me more critical feedback. They’re lifesavers when it comes to finding plot holes.

Do you gift books to readers to do reviews?
YES! I am always happy to donate books for reviews.

Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?
Nope, I never have. Occasionally I’ll look at the overall ratings on Goodreads, but that’s about the extent of it.

How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?
Oh gosh… I am the worst at names. I have literally just looked around the room for something to name a character. Taylor in Phantom Summer was named after Taylor Swift just because a song of hers happened to be playing at the time. I’ll also yell across the house something like, “I need a boy’s name!!” and whatever my daughter or boyfriend yells back is what I’ll use.

Do you decide on character traits (ie shy, quiet, tomboy girl) before writing the whole book or as you go along?
I have a list of these things… usually, okay, ALWAYS taken from random people I’ve met in real life. I go through the list and update it and pick out quirts for new characters. Also, if it’s a story I’ve been daydreaming about for a while, the characters usually form themselves in my head and tell me their own quirks before I have time to ‘create’ one for them.

Do you basic plot/plan for your book, before you actually begin writing it out? Or do you let the writing flow and see where it takes the story?
Both… with Phantom Summer I just started writing and the story went where it went. I didn’t plan anything. But with something like Powered, I spent a few weeks outlining and plotting every last detail. That book was way more technical and it needed to be done right.

Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favourite/worst  book to movie transfer?
It’s a 50/50 chance really. My favorite book/movie conversion is a bit silly, but it’s the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. I’ve read that book a dozen times and seen the movie twice as much. If you haven’t seen it, it’s available on Netflix.

Did you have a favourite author as a child?
R. L. Stine! I was obsessed with the Fear Street books and collected as many as I could, often bought with my allowance money.

Do you have a treasured book from your childhood? If yes, what is it?
My Girl and My Girl 2… what’s funny is that the books were actually written after the movies came out. I read the books before I saw the movies though, and I totally fell in love. I still have them and they are the most beaten up and well-read books on my shelf.

What piece of advice would you give to a new writer?
I know the main advice everyone says is “KEEP WRITING!” and I have to agree there. But I’ll add some more advice to that one – don’t compare yourself to anyone else. We’re all writers on a different journey and the worst thing you can do for your writing and your own self-esteem is to compare your journey with someone else’s.

Do you or would you ever use a pen name?
This actually is my pen name. I chose it when I first indie published Deadbeat and Phantom Summer. People ask me why and I don’t have much of an answer other than, “I wanted to.” You can find my other books, including Powered, under my real name Cheyanne Young.

Where can readers follow you?

I drive through the remnants of what used to be a gated entrance. Now the metal gate lies on the ground, weeds having grown over it. Mom's place is number 336-A. I park in the visitor section closest to Mom's address and step out of the Ford.
As I slam the truck door behind me, the smell of salt in the air fills my lungs. Waves crash on the shore, and seagulls…well I'm not sure what kind of sound they make overhead. A quack-ish type of caw. It's unlike any other bird's song I've ever heard.
The shabby buildings are long overdue for a new paint job and many of them have blue tarps nailed over sections of the roof. People usually do that when a hurricane comes through and blows off shingles, but it's a temporary solution. We haven't had a hurricane in over four years. Please, please let the inside look better than the outside.
I grab my backpack and suitcase and drag it up to Mom's door, tapping on it with my keys. The door swings open and a thin woman with white-blond hair stares back at me. She's wearing a purple bathrobe and has a cigar in her hand. Shit, I'm at the wrong address.
"Hey babe, I didn't expect you so soon." She puffs from her cigar and swings open the door.
"Mom?" I say, as she grabs me in a one armed hug. My mom has dark brown hair like me and a beer gut. At least, that's what she used to look like. She pulls my suitcase inside for me and closes the door behind us.
"Let me get a look at you." She grabs my shoulders with her bony fingers. "You're so different. All grown up."
"Yeah, you too," I say, studying this woman who does look a little like my mom. She has the same butterfly tattoo on her chest. Even still, I can't shake the feeling that I walked into the wrong apartment, that I'm standing here being embraced by a woman who isn't my mom.
Two seconds later the loving moment is gone. I watch Mom’s lipstick smudge onto her cigar as she takes one last puff and snuffs it in an ashtray on an end table. "I go to work at four, so you'll have the place to yourself all night,” she says, winking at me.
Mom shows me the kitchen, complete with microwave, and the bathroom and the living room with a two-seater couch which will now be my bed. "Maybe we can get you an air mattress or something," Mom says, kicking at the springy cushions with her slipper.
The old me would have freaked out if I had to spend a weekend here in Mom's living room. The old me liked having her own room, with her own bed and all of her stuff. And her best friend and lover living next door. But that's the old me. The new me doesn't mind all of these new changes.
I sit on the couch and place a smile on my face. Okay, well maybe now that I've pointed them out they kind of bother me. Sleeping on a couch? Oh well. Brendan doesn't get to sleep in his bed either. He gets to be dead in his coffin. And that thing didn't even have padding like this couch. I know because I left a copy of the Denali user's manual in his coffin when no one was looking. He wanted a Denali so bad, but as an eighteen year old he didn't have the money to spend on luxury motorcycles. I figured in the afterlife he could at least read about one.
But that was Old Taylor. And Old Taylor doesn't exist anymore. She has left the building and wants me to get acquainted with New Taylor. New Taylor lives in Sterling with her mom, and she's not afraid of anything and she has no regrets in life. New Taylor won't remember Brendan.
I hope.

BLURB from Goodreads
Jessica arrives back in town to find her best friend missing and the most powerful witch in the country is blaming her for it. But before they can move to save her, the group is attacked.

On the run, Jessica and Rourke head to the mountains. Several surprises await them, but in order to save her father they are forced to leave for New Orleans early.

Arriving on the Vampire Queen's doorstep unexpectedly, and bringing trouble on their heels, the Sects are thrown into an all out war. The vicious
skirmish ends up forcing the vamps and Jessica to fight on the same team.

The Vamp Queen ends up owing Jessica, but what Jessica doesn't realize is just how soon she'll have to cash it in.......

At 14% my initial thoughts were "I've Slipped straight back into this book and its characters. By 55% "It's gripping stuff." By 65% "Jessica is one heck of a kick butt female character!"
Upon finishing this book my first thoughts were "Wow brilliant!!! Easily as good as the Women Of The Otherworld Series by Kelley Armstrong and I never thought I would be saying that about any series of books!"

I received an e-copy of this book early via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
So I like the cover as it really fits along with the rest of the covers in the series so far. Again I like the murky blue colour, which suggests night time. The theme of having the moon on the cover once again works well. The author quote by Karen Chance about the previous book is definitely a positive even though one of my pet hates is Author Quotes on front covers! What I do love though is a byline and this book has a great byline "Stalk The Night" and it's fitting as that is what Jessica does a lot in this book! Would the cover make me pick the book up from a book store shelf? Yes!
So now to the book . . . Jessica arrives back after her last escapade in Hot Blooded, only to find that her best friend and employee Marcy has been kidnapped, so that lands Jessica a problem as Mary's Aunt is not too pleased and is a very powerful witch. A witch that it would be advisable to keep on the right side of! Jessica's father's right hand man, James has gone off alone somewhere too, and there's even bigger trouble with a rogue breakaway pack forming and planning on taking on Jessica's father's pack. The good thing about being back, is that Rourke is with Jessica so they get a little private time eventually to make their life-mate bond. 
Poor Jessica always seems to be getting into scrapes and sticky situations and this book is no different. there is plenty of action, and danger for Jessica! The Sorcerer's join forces with the Demons who want Jessica. It seems everyone is out for Jessica's blood and they don't seem so bothered whether or not she is alive or dead either. 
Some unlikely alliances are made for the fight in this book. As is becoming usual the Vampire Queen Eudoxia is at the centre of things, though we learn quite a few secrets about the Vampire Queen too. I really don't want to say much more about what happens as I think you should discover that yourselves by reading this brilliant book! 
I really do love how Amanda Carlson writes, her descriptions, her fight scenes and the characters, wow! Of course my favourite character is Jessica, a real kick butt woman! Her relationship with Rourke is red hot and he sound like the. perfect. man. doesn't he? I have also, and I know this may sound kind of odd, I've warmed to Naomi even more. I think how Ray's character has evolved and how he has been changed into a vampire and . . . .well you'll find out what else when you read the book!
So did I enjoy the book?Enjoyed it? I loved it!  Would I recommend the book? Yes, I would recommend the book and the whole series.I especially recommend this series to those who have read and loved the Women Of The Otherworld Series by Kelley Armstrong, This series really is as good as Kelley Armstrong's and I never thought I'd ever say that after reading those books. Would read another a book in this series? Oh YES! I'd read Bk#4 or a novella right now if there was one available.  Would I read other books by Amanda Carlson? as I love her style of writing as well as the Jessica McClain Series the answer to that would have to be a big Yes please!    

I love the humour that is mixed into this book in generous perfectly placed areas of the book! The following quote is a great example:

"Alana staggered like a  drunk and laughed like a possessed cartoon character, she sounded like Woody Woodpecker on acid"
