synopsis: Linc knows Wyn is the girl for him.
Wyn knows Linc is the boy for her.
But she’s promised to another.
Lincoln “Linc” Tatman had been at his new school for months and he thought he’d met all the girls it had to offer. Until one day, he spied Wyn sitting against a tree and realized this new place had been hiding the girl of his dreams. He goes out of his way to get to know her, even though he’s warned that it’s a hopeless case. But he’s determined to win her, even if she can only be his for a short time.
Arwyn “Wyn” Scott is the black sheep of her big gypsy family. When most of the girls her age are dropping out to start their own families, she begs her parents to stay. She doesn’t fit in with the gypsy teens and the regular teens are too afraid of her five older brothers to get close. Then Linc comes into her life, showing her a new life she never thought she could have. She can’t stop herself from falling head first for the boy.
Can Wyn leave behind her family and their traditions to follow her heart, or will she become a young gypsy wife

I couldn’t put this book down from the moment I started reading it to the moment I finished it which is why it only took me just over 24 hours to read it and I loved it so much because it was fascinating getting an insight in to the beliefs and traditions of the “gypsy” community as well as due to the love story between Wyn and Lincoln. It was because of this that I gave the book ‘5 stars out of 5’ and that I would and will recommend the book to others both personally and via this blog.
Wyn was a grate heroine because she was able to fight against her community’s beliefs that girls shouldn’t finish their education in favour of getting married, an arranged marriage and having children. She not only did this but also ultimately walked away from her family on her wedding day when overheard her eldest brother talking to her fiance at the church about how he had told him (the fiance) to request her hand from their father.
Lincoln is a strong character from the start and this is shown by the fact that he is so supportive with Wyn from the day they start thier relationship.
The way the book ends with Lincoln and Wyn in the Hospital having their first baby and this was the perfect way to finish the book.

Synopsis: Skylar’s family was forced into the witness protection program when she was only seventeen. After her mother died years later, Sky moved back in with the only family she had left. She knew she’d run into her high school sweetheart but she didn’t expect the changes she found in Rowdy. He wasn’t the sweet boy she left so many years ago. He’d turned into a womanizing jerk but that didn’t stop her heart from wanting him.
Review: I gave this book 5 stars out of 5 because I fell in Love the two main characters, Skylar & Rowdy immediately both them as individuals and them as a couple, because of this I would and will recommend the book to others both personally and on my blog. I also found the Stories of two of the other characters Anna and Boon really interesting. It was also an grate book because it was based around Rock climbing.
I really felt for Skylar and Rowdy when it came to Skylar just disappearing when her family had to go into witness protection and then when her Aunt and Uncle died, and she wasn’t able to go.
The way Charli’s writing draws you in and keeps you wanting more through the descriptions of characters, scenes and places is amazing.
To begin with Anna you felt sorry for her because it was obvious that she was screwed up about what her Dad had done with regard being in Jail for killing Rowdy’s, her step brother, Mum and the fact that she was in love with Rowdy. However as soon she attacked Skylar in an attempt to kill her you lost all sympathy for her.
I loved it when Skylar texted Anna from Rowdy’s phone asking her to meet in Rowdy’s room to try to get a confession out of her about what she’d done to her and the fact that she was blackmailing Rowdy.
