"After so many months wandering the world in-between, light and weightless as a feather, coming back into a human body hurt like hell." And so begins the story of Lily Grace Lawson and Canyon O'Donnell in EIGHT SECOND ANGEL, the follow-up novella to ROPES AND REVENGE in the Lonesome Point, Texas, series by Jessie Evans. Lily Grace, wife of John Lawson, was killed in ROPES AND REVENGE, and, feeling that she still has unfinished business in the here and now, has been in the 'in-between,' unwilling to cross over. Canyon O'Donnell has suffered great loss himself, and, feeling that this world would be better without him, has decided to take matters into his own hands. It's up to Lily Grace to show him just how precious life is. Jessie is one of my go-to authors. I just love the way that she writes, her words, her characters, the love that she infuses into each of her stories. Jessie's Lonesome Point, Texas, series is one of my favorites, full of strong sexy cowboys, women full of sass and strength, and tales of overcoming odds that sometimes seem impossible. EIGHT SECOND ANGEL is a true second-chance romance, of sorts. Both Lily Grace and Canyon are living in the past, and it isn't until the possibility of losing each other in the now arises that each are able to let go of what was and find the redemption that they seek. This story may be one of my absolute favorites in the series. It's full of love, loss, tears, smiles, and, yes, plenty of steamy sexy time, too. Canyon and Lily Grace touched my heart, making me want their HEA from early on. I happily recommend this book, and the whole Lonesome Point series, with 5+ 'I'm crying, I'm smiling, life IS good and beautiful' stars.
The one thing I've learned reading lonesome point books is have your tissues handy. The feels are real. The ballad of Lily Grace is full of tear jerking wonderfully emotional moments. Having read the whole series I did not read the blurb for this before I started. I didn't know if we were going back to Lily and John's time, Lily's time in heaven or what. I was pleasantly surprised in the direction Lily's story went. Lily sent back to earth to help stop Canyon from taking his own life when in return he saves her multiple times as she learns what her new body does and does not know. The truth is real, the chemistry is sizzling, the tears and the happy thoughts are plentiful. This is a great addition to a 5 star series
Not the typical Lonesome Point story, but an interesting one nonetheless. In this book we get to visit Lily Lawson again. She is sent back to earth to help a troubled soul find his way. Canyon O'Donnell is haunted by his past. So much so, he can't see his way to a future. This is the story of their beautiful journey for Lily to put to rest her past and Canyon to find his future. Very well done and I would definitely recommend.
