    When I got a message from the author asking me if I would like to review Carry Your Heart I immediately said yes for two reasons One the blurb sounds really enticing to me I am one of those readers who aren't bothered by a presence of an old love or reading about a hero who has someone else at the beginning of the book before the heroine These things don't bother me In fact I actively seek out books like these Carry Your Heart fits what I wanted to read to a tee Caleb Sawyer's life is unraveling His old lady who he has been together with since high school is leaving him to move across halfway across America His Old Lady wants Caleb to leave with her to leave the club and his brothers behind Enter Isabelle who just moved back into town after losing her mother to cancer and her father to alcohol She and Caleb went to the same high school but they don't run in the same circle She thinks he's a criminal and he thinks she's a stuck up Desperate for a job she applied for the only position to suit her being an office manager for the motorcycle run auto shopWhich brings us to the second reason why I had to read this book It has a Sons of Anarchy vibe to it Caleb is described as having longish blond hair with blue eyes screams JAX Even the description of Caleb's mom is a dead ringer for Gemma Unfortunately the fact that it reminded me too much of SOA was a bit disconcerting Each of the characters in SOA except for a few have their own euivalent character in this book But this isn't as gritty as SOA Think MC lite Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed it I liked the story I appreciated the fact that Caleb and Isabelle started off as friends first before becoming lovers I also appreciate that even though Caleb started with another woman as an old lady there were no ex girlfriend drama after he got together with Isabelle He decided it was her and he followed through or in other words he wasn't hung up on another woman That was very clear throughout the book I also like that the author took the time to develop the romanceThat said the book did drag a bit for me in the middle It seemed like Caleb and Isabelle were content to just be friends The romance at one point moved at glacial pace I wondered if they will ever get together Another thing is the conflict There wasn't really a huge conflict except for individual ones But there is a hint of a big conflict in the second book This book ends on an HEA for Caleb and Isabelle but there's an incoming threat that could play a big role in the next two books Overall a solid debut for K Ryan ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    Originally reviewed at SmexyBooks uote “I could choose to be miserable or I could choose to be happy I was going to choose to be happy”Isabelle Iz Martin has come home to Claremont NC after leaving Duke University and her boyfriend Her mother’s death and her father’s depression convinces Iz she is needed at home than ever When her father demands she get a job or get out Isabelle applies at Sawyer’s Auto Repair; owned and operated by the Iron Horseman MC Isabelle doesn’t care who owns or runs it however she does care her high school nemesis is a mechanic is thereCaleb Sawyer is on a fast track to nowhere A legacy member of the Iron Horseman he thought his life was all planned out until his girlfriend of five years suddenly announced she has accepted an internship in California He can’t leave Claremont and she refuses to stay When he hits rock bottom he is shocked the person who picks him up is none other than Isabelle Martin Despite his endless teasing of her in high school being on Isabelle makes him feel better She listens without judgement or pity but also doesn’t put up with any of his crapAfter a rocky start Isabelle and Caleb slowly build a strong friendship that develops into something as each has something the other wants and needs But can two completely different people find common ground? Or will the past always come back to stand in their way?When I was offered Carry Your Heart I honestly thought I was getting an MC romance The first few chapters reminded me heavily of SOA fanfic as we get the back story and set to the protagonists and the Iron Horseman As the story developed the SOA feeling gradually faded though it still remained in the background The MC aspect is extremely low key with the main storyline focused almost exclusively on Caleb and Isabelle Alternating povs gives us insight into their emotions and actions about the situations they are currently dealing with without recapping the previous chapter It becomes a solid contemporary NA romance This isn’t a stand alone While no cliffhanger ending Ryan does warns us this is a trilogy that spans eight years of Isabelle and Caleb’s lifeCaleb is at a low point when he and Isabelle reconnect His girlfriend is leaving town and he knew nothing of her plans until they were set in concrete With no time to prepare for what he sees as her betrayal he spirals down a hole filled with alcohol drugs and random women This inadvertently affects Isabelle as her father is slowly killing himself with alcohol; depressed over his wife’s death Isabelle’s fears for Caleb going down the same path pushes her to tell him some hard facts about love and loss Isabelle helps Caleb straighten up which in turn allows Caleb to be there when she needs him most From that point on they become each other’s shoulder to lean on and their friendship blossoms into loveThe friends to lovers plot line reveals gradually allowing us plenty of time to get to know Caleb and Isabelle as individuals and to facilitate their romance Neither one has ever had a best friend of the opposite sex and Ryan does a wonderful job of bringing their friendship to life It’s an integral aspect of the story Smooth writing moves the story along at a steady pace Lightweight in terms of drama and conflict; self discovery is the theme that permeates the story Emotionally and physically the chemistry is there but when it comes to actual sex the scenes are blurry and vague As I have a fabulous imagination this didn’t bother me PAn array of secondary characters plump up the story allowing us to get to know the town its inhabitants and the role the Iron Horseman play in it Here is where the SOA feelings were the strongest There is much in here to remind you of Charming and the strong hold the MC held on it I saw Jax Opie Gemma Clay Wendy and in the characterization and storyline dynamics Ryan does make it her own by keeping her focus mainly on Caleb and Isabelle but I am very curious to see what the next two books in this trilogy holds as the ending hints at an overzealous agent looking into the club and it’s activitiesAll in all Ryan’s debut NA romance is an easy read that doesn’t add ridiculous melodrama or over the top posturing from the men or woman It has a feel good element to it as you watch this sweet young couple overcome some adversity to find happiness in their lives Any misunderstandings are dealt with swiftly as this couple knows how to communicate and neither plays games And color me shocked there is no cheating which is almost unheard of for any story revolving around an MC The only reason I did not rate this higher was the strong SOA similarity I am hoping that this tapers off and the next book stands on its own two feet Book two Carry You With Me is slated to release in September 2015 I have a feeling that is where the MC will grab a larger part of the storylineRATING C

    Isabelle came home to say goodbye to her mother who was dying Things got worse when her father buried his grief in a bottle and she became his caretaker My heart hurt for her as she went through all of this so alone She gets a job in the office of an MC auto shop and meets Caleb He is going through his own issues after his long time girlfriend leaves him when he least expected it They both are so lonely and connect when they least expected it I loved that Caleb was so supportive of her even before they realized what was happening between them And that Iz was so understanding in what he was going through I really loved them together The bonus was that she also gained his mom in the mix who I absolutely loved The epilogue has me dying to read the next book in the series for sure I so enjoyed Iz and Caleb's storyI give Carry Your Heart 4 hearts

  4. Gemma Weir Gemma Weir says:

    Check out of my reviews on my blog your heart is book #1 in the Carry Your Heart Series and the first book I have read by this author I was gifted a copy if this book to read for Gemma Reads Too muchThis book was sold to me as an MC romance; honestly I wouldn’t class it as that Yes there is an MC but it’s not a main focus in this storyNow is that a problem? Well yes and noI love MC books so I was a little disappointed that although the club was there it was very much in the background Don’t get me wrong with the way this book ended I think we will be getting a much traditional MC book in the next book in the series But I love the grit and grime of a good biker outlaw gang so a bit fat dose of that would have gone down incredibly well with meThis might have been low on the badass biker ratio but it was high on the adorable romance side of thingsI actually loved the slow burn on this love story we as the reader watched them create a loving friendship all whilst we knew it was only a matter of time before they slipped into loversI liked both Isabelle and Caleb and the silly teasing and flirting was backed up by a very obvious deep sense of protectiveness for one anotherHmmmm not sure how I feel about Becca I get the impression that I’m going to really dislike her in the books going forwardThe epilogue on this book was very unexpected and if I’m truthful a little creepy Can anyone say stalker in the makingOverall I enjoyed this book it’s like a gateway book to the MC genre where they hint to the darker grittier side of the genre without actually throwing it in your faceCarry your heart gets 4 stars from me

    So I received a copy of this books by K Ryan in exchange of my honest review which I always had and I always will in every book I'm going to read and I was ready to review it when a thought crossed my mind and open Goodreads in search of what its synopsis was talked about Well it was a long synopsis Which was good and bad at the same time But the worst part was that I read of an other person review which I never did before and now I'm totally confused Crap Why in the earth I did this? Losing my way of thoughts now I'm going to start somehow and fingers crossed I'll make it to the endIt wasn't a life I knew anything about or even really cared to know about but now out of necessity I just had to suck it up and step insideIsabelle's Martin life had reached bottom Losing her mother six months ago from lung cancer and having a father who druwn himself in alcohol after his wife's death she felt totally alone and helpless Trying to be the supporting and caring daughter to her father she uit law school split with her current boyfriend only to come back home and help her father to rehab but that was something that never happened So she just stayed there ready for his call to pick him up from wherever he was drunk or passed out Of course leaving law school wasn't something bad She realy wanted to after her mother's death It wasn't her own choice to go there from the beginning so she felt relief and happy for the one good she did for herself but now she had to find a real job to earn her living and the only one open for her was at the Sawyer Auto Repair store I was pathetic I was useless I was complitely destroyedGoing to work at the Sawyer's Auto Repair store wasn't an option for Isabelleit was a need A need to start something good for herself a need to be needed a need to feel alive Knowing that Skyler Sawyer and her son Caleb are the kind of people she never wanted to cross her path with but at the same time they were her lifesavers for the time being she tried to find the courage to look strong and stable in frond of them Less to say she took the job and an other piece of her puzzled life find its place in the spot of her self happiness I wondered if I was going to have to deal with women stomping around pissed off and disappointed with me my whole lifeThat was Caleb Sawyer The only son Skyler has who worked at the Auto Repair store also Well it was his mother's shop so he owned the place as well Caleb knew Isabelle from high school but they never been in a same company before only few classes and that was it He always teased her with a nickname one that Isabelle hated but deep inside him always admired her in a way A deep deep way So when he saw her coming out the shop jaw dropping beautiful he couldn't believe his own eyes The news that she is going to work with his mother now it was a big deal for him It became bigger when the two of them after an awkward beginning connected in an indescribable way comparing their pasts and creat a close friend relationship supporting one the other because both their lives shown them their ungly faces When his own life was in stalemate with his five years in relationship girlfriend Ariel who is leaving to California totally leaving him broken and empty Isabelle was the one who helped him recover and up to his feet againFor the most part this place was really starting to feel like it could be somewhere I belonged somewhere that made sense even if it wasn't long termThe maturity of Isabelle's is something Ι don't find offen at girls in her age Maybe it was the way she has raised or maybe it was her character that made her the person she is now Knowing Sawyer's Auto Repair shop and Bike Club common secret background she's still there working everyday with the Horsemen and Skyler having her lunch break with Caleb and enjoy her Friday nights at the club with her friends Always in tune with her surroundings Isabelle is the girl next door ready to help at any cost without judgment or consideration abilities which helped Caleb to feel safe and relaxed when he was around her Feelings that made him protective and observant to a woman than ever before And that's how things started to change for each otherA weight one that I hadn't had the courage to acknowlenge before now magically evaporated from my shoulders with those wordsBoth Isabelle and Caleb had tough lives each different to the other but with the same effect They both were broken They both were strong only to help the others Lunch break was their bubble Alone at the picnic table everything seemed easy and secure like nothing bad happened to their lives like always were closed friends The feelings came naturaly first as a friend to friend who cares for the other then there was protectivity and then there was a deep unconditional love none of them ever felt for an other person before Outlaw was what I was born into but it was also what I was born for There just weren't any other options for me because this was everything I'd ever wanted My legacy was at this table and there was no way I'd ever do anything to jeopardize thatThat's what Horsemen are an outlaw motorcycle gang Ruthless and deadly Caleb is one of them one with his one foot on a great post to be He is going to be a president soon so he must act like one and have a clear head also Ariel's departure broke him made him a drunk wreck a walking empty vase but he managed to get on his feet After all these times he spent with Isabelle he finally found again his old self and when the time comes he will be the best choice for the gang His only concern was that Isabelle wasn't meant for this life She was better better for all of them and she deserved but she was the one for him and he couldn't live without her so he had to choose for her even if it wasn't his place to do itShe didn't deserve this life She didn't deserve the constant danger that being involved with Sawyer would inevitably put her in She deserved the best happiness safety security and all the things a life with Sawyer would never give her if he kept her around long enough to actually get that farThe story called to be known but for me it's not It's a love story which got through enough before it finally settled Reading both POVs was a pleasure to know and understand what is going on in their minds I was pleased from the storytell because it struck a chord in me that made me cry and laugh made me be a part of them made me remember my own youth problems made me see what my own girls will go through when the time comes because every life every love has it's prickle K Ryan written a fabulous story here She mentioned all these problems a broken family has parents with health problems or with alcohol problems or parents who push their childrens to follow their personal abbitions than their own ones and then there are the kids broken and unhappy from their lives but always there to pleased their parentsAnd then there are the outlaws The people you always keep an eye on them over your shoulder you always stay away from them butalways want to know about them It's a forbidden fruitand a great subject to use in a story if you know stuff about them I believe K Ryan developed the story with lightness in this book which was an intelligent decision if you ask me and developed this unconditional love a young couple that fights to stay bound no matter the circumstances they had to deal and at the same time to fought their own demons their own unsettle toughts and decisions My only criticism goes to the long monologues They did dragged a bit and made me change the page and go further However the story flowed uickly until it finished and I had to write my thoughts before I start reading the second book of the series Yes I loved reading Carry you home I loved itand I believe every girl in that age or almost in that age has to read itmaybe her mother too if she likes to read books Love story or not Carry you home has a lot things to show us than a common love storyEnjoy your readingVivi

    455 Full Review can be found at right off the bat you go into what Isabelle Iz as Caleb calls her is facing with The loss of her mother really hit her and her father hard and now she is left to pick up the pieces while trying to find her place in the worldThen comes Caleb A man with a past and not someone who has thought much about his future expect one thing Wanting to stay in the family business I totally get that and I found myself at times really thinking about how family oriented he is with his FamilyI also found that from the beginning and so through to the end I got a Sons Of Anarchy vibe I never watched the entire series but I will be now but I got that aspect of shady deals motorcycles Old Lady's Patches and FamilyThere was so much love and passion between not only Caleb and Isabelle but also the love between Isabelle and Skylar I could tell right away that she was a bad ass mom who would seriously do anything and everything to make sure her baby boy was cared for by the best woman possibleIt also entails that there is some monster trying to ruin anything perfect for someone who just wants to be happy For me I really hated Isabelle's father as well as Ariel I mean if you put those two in a room who knows what kind of trouble they would be up to Katie Ryan really had me turning the page faster than I could even read the words I was drawn so uickly and just couldn't put it down There was a part towards the end where Isabelle realizes what her life is supposed to be and what she truly feels is best for her So when the decision was made I was heartbroken and then amazed and excited within 5 chapters Sleep was no option for me as I just had to finish and find out what was going to happenand then BAM PLOT TWISTOverall I found this to be a great read Although it was a little slow to begin with and drag on a little at the end I found myself captured within the book forgetting about the outside world for hours on end Isabelle and Caleb both kept getting knocked down left right and center and they just kept on rising refusing to let fear or destruction get in their way This was a great novel with a lot of romance love heartache heartbreak disappointment and recovery I really loved the writing style and I just could not get enough

    This was exactly what I needed As an English teacher I naturally crave reading but as a summertime stay at home mom I desperately need to have something carefree and intriguing to get lost in That’s how I felt with Isabelle and Caleb even if it did take uite a while for “the action” to happen Although I might have texted K Ryan to desperately ask how much longer until they get down to the nitty gritty I think I most appreciated how she prolonged their relationship and took the time to develop the characters and their foundation I find that too often do New AdultContemporary Romance authors rush into the “juicy” parts no pun intended So thank you K Ryan for making us wait right along with the characters The allusions made me smile Some of my favorite poems and movies were referenced including ee cummings “i carry your heart” which was read at my wedding I thought this made the characters engaging and realistic for their ages Some reviews have mentioned the similarities to SOA which makes sense because of the author’s adoration of a certain strikingly sexy man from the series However I have never seen the show so I was unfazed by this maybe I should watch it though now is Jax is anything like Caleb?? ; Overall I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good romance witty one liners and a kickass playlist I’m eagerly waiting for September when I can get my hands on a copy of “Carry You with Me”

  9. Amanda B Gillespie Amanda B Gillespie says:

    This book was the first MC book I’ve read and I must say I was expecting of a Son of Anarchy type atmosphere than I got The thing is I’m glad that is what I got as an introduction to this genre It wasn’t anywhere close to SOA and the MC was a part of the setting and plot but it wasn’t the main part and did not make me feel overwhelmed There was plenty of alcohol an air of violence and a smattering of drugs and illegal activity The sexual encounterings aren’t written in a smut book atmosphere It was of a glance at the bad aspects but the real stuff was laid out in a loving wayCaleb is a character with real pain and suffering but in the beginning seems a little disjointed because you want to grab him up by the scruff of his neck and tell him to get a gripIsabelle is the typical independent woman of a small town She refuses help after her mom dies and her dad falls apart and tries to drown himself in alcohol and is determined to not let anyone know things aren’t what they seem in fear of her dad’s reputation getting destroyedThe story follows Caleb and Isabelle as they discover a love that is years in the making even though neither knew it was a smoldering possibility The struggles are real and I spent most of the day that it took me to read it with a “romance is awesome” smile on my faceI received a digital copy of this book via IndieSage PR in return for an honest review

    Caleb and Iz grew up in the same small town and attended high school together A few years down the road Caleb is nursing a broken heart from his high school sweet heart and spiraling down hill uickly Iz is back home after spending the last two years attending Duke studying Law Iz's mom recently passed away and her dad is not handling the loss well and has turned into a mean Drunk Iz is forced to take a job in the office where Caleb's works With both of them dealing with their own personal struggles they strike up a friendship during their breaks I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book I LOVE MC books but to be honest finding a good one without cheating and a HEA is rare A lot of MC novels also love to go overboard on the drama K Ryan somehow found the perfect balance to add a little suspense without making you stop and think wow this is stupid and would never happen in real life I would have given it 5 stars but there was just something lacking and I'm not sure what Still a really good book and definitely worth the read
