A moment can change everything… 
Ashton Taylor. Six foot one, Dark hair, chiseled jaw, riveting hazel eyes, and a body cut in all the right places. He’s a natural. Things just come easy to him. He’s used to getting everything he wants, excelling at everything he does. The grades, the recognition, the beautiful women.
His path was set. A girl, a full scholarship to UC San Diego, and a bright future. To others, his life seemed perfect. But, things are never what they seem, and life, well, at any moment, something or someone can come along and turn it upside down. 
That something…the death of his father.
That someone… Cara Hayward. The girl with the hypnotic eyes, melodic voice, enchanting smile, and lips sent straight from heaven.
The girl who doesn’t want to be seen.
So what happens when a guy who everything comes easy to, meets a girl who doesn’t come easy? 
Can he crawl through all the broken glass to find her? Will the girl he discovers deep down be able to see past his perfect exterior?
Together, do they have the power to heal one another? Or, could the very thing that brings them together, be the one thing that tears them apart?

Kindle Crack Book Reviews:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. Release date:  September 26th. Stand alone.  No cliffhanger. Spoiler-free review.  4.5 – 5.0 stars!

Ash Taylor is a player…on and off the field.  He excels in whatever he does…baseball, football, school and being a chick magnet.  He looks like he has everything going for him.  In reality, Mr. Perfect doesn’t feel so perfect…and he is actually lonely…but never really alone.  Ash becomes the man of the house after his dad died of cancer.  He forgoes a prestigious baseball scholarship to remain close to home to be with his mother, sister and brother. While attending a local university he meets Cara, a beautiful student and librarian.   Cara appears very reserved, studious and seemly sweet (not Ash’s usual type).  Ash asks Cara out almost a dozen times until she finally agrees to go out with him.  Cara believes that no man (especially someone as perfect as Ash) will want to be with her if her secret is uncovered. Can this unlikely pair trust enough to let love in? Will their emotional obstacles be too much to deal with? Are things as lovely as they seem?

Beth Michele did a fantastic job developing Ash’s character. I loved getting into his head and heart as his cocky exterior cracked open to show such a beautiful soul. I also liked Cara and wished there was more back story after learning her secret. Lovely wasn’t overly dramatic or trying too hard to be steamy. I have to say that I had to bust out the tissues a few times. This story seemed so real. Beth Michele’s writing style sucked in from page one. I can’t wait to see what she is working on next.  Whatever it is I will beg for an ARC or happily download. This book was refreshing (especially after I just read something dark) and just Lovely.

About the Author:
I am a wife, a mom, an author, and a lover of all things chocolate, well, anything sweet really. While stuffing chocolate in my face, I enjoy reading young adult and new adult novels furiously, and spending time with my husband and two adorable children who keep me on my peppermint pink painted toes. Those same children who inspire me to tell silly stories that cause hysterical giggles to tumble from their bellies.
I love to laugh and love to have a good cry, especially after reading a novel that stretches my soul, one that makes me feel, and lingers in the corner of my heart.
I’m a hopeless romantic and a happily ever after fanatic, and I love to write about LOVE.
I began writing when I was in middle school, penning anything from short stories, to poetry, and then later moved on to write children’s books.  I have now endeavored into New Adult and Contemporary Romance novels and am loving every minute of it.  My first novel, Love Love, was released in May, 2013.
