On the Way to You by Kandi Steiner

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: November 16th, 2017

What makes you happy?
That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.
And then, I got in his car.
It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.
We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers.
One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.
Discovering his journal changed everything.
I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.
I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.
Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.

About the Author:

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer. Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies). When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.

 This was my second Kandi Steiner book and I should have known that it was going to be an emotional ride from cover to cover. So, if this is your first one, then you are in for a real treat. Kandi will take you on an emotional roller coaster that will leave you breathless with tears in your eyes. 

I am not one for reading the blurb before I read a book and sometimes I regret it, but not this time. I was able to be complete surprised and let this story unfold and take me on a journey I didn't know I need until I read this book. So, for people like me, I am writing this review so that you too can be surprised. 

This book takes you through a journey that intertwines to people who didn't know that they needed each other. Two broken souls taking the journey of a lifetime cross-country heading toward two very different goals, but somehow bonding and making a connection that just might change everything. There will be tears while reading this book...some more than others depending on how close to home this hits. Your heart will break and there will be moments where you will smile and hope. Take a chance, read this book, it will most definitely leave its mark on your heart and maybe even your soul. Find out how Cooper and Emery's journey begins, how it unfolds and find out if through it all they can find a HEA.

What makes you happy? The first words of this book are really the most important ones. Depending on who you talk to and where they are in their lives, the responses for this question can vary greatly. How does one answer this when it seems like everything in their lives is upside down? Or if you can't see the light through all the darkness that invades your brain?

Two people who probably should never have met come together to try and beat their demons and make their lives into something special. Cooper has been dealt a pretty crappy hand in life with parents who just couldn't care less about her, an accident that changed her forever and a life in a small backwoods that she just can't wait to escape. Despite all this, she sees the beauty in life and the sunshine in the sky always.

Emery, on the other hand, seems to have it all. But all is not as it seems for him. He lives in a world of darkness that few can understand. Bumping into Cooper at the diner in Alabama gives him a traveling buddy. But it is a trip that these two never expected.

Can Cooper bring Emery to the light? Or will he drag her down into the darkness? This is a journey of self-discovery for both of these people and whether or not they have a future will be discovered through hope, betrayal, love and pain. Kandi Steiner has this ability to draw emotion out of even the coldest of people and this look into depression and those who love people who suffer from depression is truly spot on. It IS difficult to love someone who sometimes slips into a darkness that you can't understand and I believe Kandi tackles this subject remarkably!

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Bodyguard by CD Reiss is the second book the Hollywood A-List series. It most definitely can be read as a standalone as there is very little mention of any of the characters included in Bombshell, the first book. 

Emily loves to dance and sing. Together with her best friend Darlene, they were set for superstardom. But circumstances for Emily changed. She gave it up for what she thought was a loving relationship only to find out she was wrong. Now she lives the life though more in the background as a choreographer for Darlene who has most definitely hit it big. She does love the job but feels constantly a burden and a victim since her ex is an absolute stalker. 

Carter Kincaid is a bodyguard and is completely serious about his job. His only goal is to protect his principals and his family and absolutely nothing will deter him from protecting those he loves. Until he meets Emily. Now there are shades of grey all over the place and Carter doesn't know if he is coming or going and if he can continue to protect everyone the way he should. 
There is steam aplenty for lovers of CD Reiss and there is so much intrigue, suspense, secrets and most of all love. The heart is large enough to allow us to love so much and Carter learns this in many different ways. I loved the authors use of the "smell" of 5th of July. I could so "smell" that whenever Emily described Carter as having that scent. There are plenty of characters you will fall in love with including Phin, who I'd love to read about later as an adult. 

Review Blitz - DEFIANT QUEEN by Meghan March


The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt. I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment? They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body. But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy. I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules. I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact. But he has other plans . . .

Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.

Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.

New Orleans belongs to me. You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn’t know she caught my attention. She should’ve been more careful. I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It’s time to collect what I’m owed. Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount. *Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy*

Meghan March has been known to wear camo face paint and tromp around in woods wearing mud-covered boots, all while sporting a perfect manicure. She's also impulsive, easily entertained, and absolutely unapologetic about the fact that she loves to read and write smut. Her past lives include slinging auto parts, selling lingerie, making custom jewelry, and practicing corporate law. Writing books about dirty talking alpha males and the strong, sassy women who bring them to their knees is by far the most fabulous job she's ever had. She loves hearing from her readers at

If you haven't read the first book, do not start with this book...these books are a trilogy and need to be read in order.

Wow! If I thought I was hooked from Ruthless King, then Meghan goes and make Defiant Queen even better. After the cliffhanger in the first book, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one to see what happens. Not to mention having to pull my jaw off the floor.

This book takes you deeper into the relationship between Mount and Keira. With each scene you get to see how things start to change, yet stay the same. If that even makes any sense...well, it will once you read this book. The way these two are with each other is intoxicating to read and the best part is that Meghan makes you feel like you are a voyeur in the most amazing way. God, what I wouldn't give to be Keira for just a little while. And I love how Keira can go toe to toe with Mount and maybe not come out on top, but put up a good fight. Then there are all the swoon-worthy moments in this book when you get to see a different side of Mount. With every twist and turn I found myself enraptured in this story and when the cliffhanger for this book came around...I was totally not expecting it. 

Yet again I was left with my mouth hanging open and wishing I didn't have to wait for the next book. Hurry up December and bring me the next book!
