    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 4.5 STARS What a gorgeous book Intense, addictive, equally heart wrenching and heart warming, this story captured my heart from the first chapter and is now one of my top favorites I LOVED IT From the moment I read this blurb, I just knew this was a book I had to read I don t know what makes a great love story I only know what makes my love story I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thing that saved me That saved us.He was broken than I was, but somehow we took each other s shattered pieces and made a whole If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine ours is the greatest of them all The hero, Cole, was a mysterious and gorgeous man with a devastatingly painful past, and the heroine, Eden, was a single mom of a little girl on the run from a dangerous past They first met when the girls moved into a beachside cottage that he owned Their connection was intense, and even from that first moment, their lives changed I really don t want to tell you too much about this story though than the blurb because one of the things I loved most about it was the experience of seeing it unfold as I read.T...

    5 Stars He was broken than I was, but somehow we took each other s shattered pieces and made a whole. I don t know what it is about this book that touched me on such a viscaral level, but I still can t stop thinking about this story or the ending I ve read other books by this author and I already knew she could write, but this book just blew the other ones out of the water It was THAT good Emotional, gripping, and unforgettable story of second chances and redemption, this is one story I won t be forgetting any time soon.Eden is running from a past that still haunts her Together with her young daughter they finally find the peace they re looking for in a small town on a cabin on the beach Eden isn t looking for a man in her life All she wants is stability stability for her and especially for her daughter But when they stumble onto a handsome stranger silently building a sandcastle on the beach, Eden and Emmy are both inexplicably drawn to him Eden doesn t know what it is about the silent and brooding man Maybe she recognizes his inner turmoil and pain in his eyes Or maybe it s just a connection that can t be explained with simple chemistry Whatever the reason may...

    2 stars He was broken than I was, but somehow we took each other s shattered pieces and made a whole If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine ours is the greatest of them all This part of the blurb grabbed me, and I knew then and there I was going to read this book no matter what Obviously from my rating I didn t like it much, but you may very well love it so I encourage anyone who was interested before to give it a shot regardless I have a feeling this is one of those stories that every reader will interpret a little differently I ll break down the plot of this story in non spoilery terms The heroine Eden and her young daughter Emmy are running from their past and arrive in a small town to get a fresh start Eden s not ready for a relationship of any kind and she has Emmy s well being to consider, but despite those concerns, she still finds herself drawn to the reclusive hero Cole She sees a brokenness in him that mirrors her own After a tragedy takes the most important person in his life away, Cole bottles up his thoughts and feeling...

    3.75 Stars We are two broken people, finding strength in each other s remaining pieces We ve both lost so much, paid so dearly for what we have left, for what we were allowed to keep Maybe just maybe, it s enough to make a whole Our pieces Together I don t know what to rate this book so please bare with me if the rating changes a few times in the next few days M Leighton went outside the box with this story and I found it intriguing and the writing was quotable and well done I enjoyed both main characters, their backstories and even the instant love I didn t have an huge issue with but was intrigued by their mutual attraction I m drawn to his pain, to his fury, to his intensity I did however need of this couple together and found things went kind of quickly with several things I didn t care for thrown in for dramatic effect ...

    5 Cry my eyeballs out Stars This book was. Awe Fucking Some From the vary first page it grabbed my attention and made me fall in love with it I couldn t help but cry Eden is starting fresh She is starting new with her 6 year old daughter, Emmy Maybe this will finally be a place we can call home Home safe home Emmy is the reason for Eden s living Her daughter means everything to her and she would do whatever is in her power to protect and love her Emmy was just this cute little thing She made me cry from the first chapter I loved that girl, she was just so smart and mature for her age And she be saying the most fucked up things that will make you cry like a baby Will you promise to try To try what To be happy when I m in heaven Did i mention that she s only 6 Some babies aren t meant to stay down here with their mommas And their daddies Some babies are angels And angels are meant to be in heaven When Eden and Emmy were walking along the water, Emmy spots a guy making a Sand castle When her and Emmy just stop and watch the man create a sand castle, it was like magic When he took notice of them and he turned, it was like spark flies Eden is not attracted to anyone, so why now Why to this stranger I m not attracte...

    ARC provided in exchange for an honest review Title Pocketful of SandSeries StandaloneAuthor M LeightonRelease date March 15, 2015Rating 4 starsGoing into this book, I wasn t too sure what the story was going to be about besides the fact that both main characters were dealing with troubled pasts The synopsis doesn t tell you much than that and I was pretty curious to see how it would play out Although, I figured it was a safe bet to say that this book would be an emotional and possibly angst filled read and that s just what I was in the mood for I ll tell you straight away, this book is most definitely filled with emotion and heart, though at times it did drag a little slow in the middle for me I fought the urge to skim in parts, but not necessarily because of any issues The basic plot is just something I ve read many times over two broken people finding each other and helping one another heal The heroine is in hiding with her daughter and the hero has become somewhat of a recluse, imprisoning himself in a painful past that he doesn t want to forgive himself for I was kind of expecting something shocking, possibly a twist, and that s what kept me reading steadily until the very end despite my attention want...

    5 My heart is Full StarsThis was quite possibly M Leighton s finest work With heartbreaking despair, second chances and redemption it is a book as beautiful as it is tragic As a reader it sucked me into a realm of emotion and held me captive Pocketful of Sand introduces Cole and Emmy These two broken souls do not have anything different from those in other damaged love stories Each have past tragedy Each have a void in their souls Neither is looking to fill those voids What makes them unique For me, it is a deep rooted connection and developing love stemming from a child One girl far away in a place of peace, gone too soon The other a quiet soul whose presence begs for goodnessfor happiness.I could never recap the story without taking away the magic So I say that this is emotional and tragic I will also say that it is chalk full of insta everything From first encounters and glances, small touches, to the complete claiming of hearts, Cole and Emmy are in deep I can t think I can t eat I can t even grieve any It s all about you Everything is about you Cole He s capturing me And I m captured He wants me And I m his And I love it I love it all More than I ever thought Emmy My past black nothingness, lurking, stalking, mocking My present warm, golden, promising Alive without stopping Moments and statements like these just get to me I o...

    2.5 starsObviously I m in the minority with this one, but this book just did not work for me I m normally a fan of broken people finding each other and healing But in this case I think there was just too much drama It started off promisingly, but the love story happened too quickly for me, and as the character s pasts were revealed and the story played out, I got and disconnected Eden and her young daughter, Emmy, have just moved to a small coastal town Running from the horrors of their past, Eden is determined to start afresh and provide a happy and stable life for Emmy, who requires a lot of her attention.While walking along the cold beach one day, they see a man building an elaborate sandcastle He is gorgeous, but seems distant and closed off, but Eden is immediately intrigued by him From talking to townfolk, she learns that his name is Cole and that he is dealing with his own traumatic past And after a few run ins, intense staring, and unexpected visits, it very quickly becomes clear that he is equally as drawn to her Sometimes I think broken people gravitate toward...

    Cole Cole Cole My, my, my.I haven t been this affected and yet, notupset and irritated by a book guy in such a long time I was SO thankful and grateful and HAPPY with how Michelle pulled Cole off I was worried, naturally, from the first page, when he comes off with the attitude and off kilter sexiness that you know is going to drive her wild and be this un contained beast throughout the book BUT instead of making him the complete jerk that he could have been, and that I see SO much in books lately and I m getting pretty tired of it actually, she used his pain and made him something we see in each of ourselves, something so real and tangible it lifted right off the page Eden and Emmy were real and adorable and heart wrenching What happened to them was awful and should never happen to anyone Mixing their story s heartbreak with Cole s was just like two flames mixing together, the blue and the red, the hot and the hotter, but they somehow stabilized and make it work I ve read other books on the subject of physical sexual abuse and for me they all tried to take it all too far or make the story seem like it was all focused on that Michelle makes the story focus on what came AFTER And that s exactly what she told me while we were texting about the book I wanted the story to focus on the fallout, the recovery, the getting better , not the abuse That s not what the story should be about.And the book was different Completely It do...

    2.75 5 starsI really liked the premise of the story and I liked the beginning and found it promising But after that it just went way too fast, too much insta love and some other things.Things I liked Emmy She was very cute and I liked her The beginning of the story The beach The main characters I liked them both seperately from each other.Things I didn t like How fast their relationship develops He is a hermit for years but all of a sudden he s not any All of a sudden they re having sex and are always together It just wasn t a really natural progression and felt a bit forced Some things just came out of nowhere and took away from the story instead of adding to it For example view spoiler All of a sudden him being married not cool The whole thing with Emmy s dad showing up it came out of nowhereand wasn t e...
