    Waylaid (True North #8) by Sarina Bowen

    This is such an awesome read. 4.5 stars! And it intrigued me from the very start. Synopsis: This is the story of Daphne Shipley and Rickie – Dylan Shipley’s roommate/landlord.

    Heartland by Sarina Bowen

    Coming January 28th Heartland is the newest book in the True North series by Sarina Bowen and it’s another emotional rollercoaster with all the feels, just like the other True North books are. I did bawl a bit at one point. You know that ugly kind of crying involving snot. But don’t worry, there’s a happily ever after in the very end. Heartland is Dylan Shipley’s and Chastity’s story. Dylan is the College heartthrob, the altogether nice – but also a bit slutty – guy who’s devoted to his family and friends. And Chastity, she’s one of his very best ones. Raised in a religious cult, Chastity managed to escape…
