Leaves of a Maple Box Set (1-3) is a wonderful way to read these three great books and get your first insight into the many boys of Leaves of a Maple. If you have not read the fantastic and moving words of Haley Jenner before this is a great way to start and if you are like me you will become a life long fan.
ARCHER (Leaves of a Maple Book 1) 5.0 out of 5 stars. An epic love story that will break your heart and have you grabbing the tissues. Extraordinary
There are no words to describe this wonderful book that will do it justice some that may come close are: earthshattering, brilliant, extraordinary, amazing, heartfelt, real, sexy, sad, emotional, outstanding, drama-packed, pain, love, true love, heart-wrenching, legendary, devotion, devastation, desperation, consuming. It has to be one of the best books I have read I have ever read and that is giving it high praise as I have read over 145 books this year alone.
This book is written by two authors writing together as one pen name, their storytelling ability is just wonderful. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to read their book. I was immersed into the world of Archer and Annabelle from this very start and still over 24 hours since I finished it the story and characters are still with me.
This book is a good size novel that will have you falling into love and have your heart broken right along with these characters as you read. Archer will have you wanting to fix his dark and broken soul as he struggles with his life with PTSD. This book is the ultimate love story from start to finish and with the next book about Jake Archer’s brother I am sure we will be in for more dramas and entertainment.
Some of my favourite quotes from the book:-
"Don't cry, baby breaks my heart."
“Words, Baby. You have to give me words.”
“I love you, Belle. More than any-f-thing in this world. My heart beats only for you.”
“I resent her. I despise her. I need her. I hate her. But f me, I love her.”
"You were supposed to give it back, Archer. My heart, when you didn't want it anymore. You were supposed to give it back."
I am not going to give you a rundown of the story but just to say YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK!!!
JAKE (Leaves of a Maple Book 2) 4.0 out of 5 stars. I just love the Leaves of a Maple series and Haley Jenner.
If you follow my blog you would know I just love the Leaves of a Maple series and Haley Jenner. I really liked this book “Jake” the second in the series but would have to say its not my favourite of what I have read so far. In saying that I have not read this series in order I started with book one thank read book 4, know book two. Jake I just loved and would happily give him a five-star review but I had difficulty connecting with Aubrey her reason for cheating and not leaving her boyfriend was not made clear until the end of the book and for me, I did not understand or relate to her reason. How do you love someone but stay with another?? As usual, the girls heat up the pages and pull you to pieces emotionally with their wonderful paragraph. I am so looking forward to Bennett and have you checked out the new covers for this series? Hot and sexy men on the covers.
If you have read Archer you will already have met and gotten to know Jake who is Archers younger brother and best friends to Archers girlfriend, Belle. So we already know about his history and childhood and his soft caring soul. So for me seeing him struggle with love, family and friendship were heartbreaking and the tears rolling down my face a few time during the book.
The push and pull of Aubrey and Jake ’s shattering relationship will leave you soul-crushing at times and at others just so totally frustrating. All my frustration was on Aubrey and her inability to give herself completely to the man that loved and adored her. The story is more than just about the two of them with all of our favourite character back we get to learn more about each of them as the stories of the Leaves of a Maple continues.
BENNETT (Leaves of a Maple Book 3) 5.0 out of 5 stars. Red Riding Hood & the Big Bad Wolf as you have never read before!!!! A must Read Series.
Bennet, Bennet, Bennet James how long has it taken me to get around to reading you? If only more man were like you there would be more happy women in this world. You are hot, sexy, sensitive, charming, understanding, popular, honest and a Lady Killer. I loved Archer he almost broke my heart completely and Jake made me want to give him a big cuddle as I felt so bad for his story. So what did I get from Bennet????
LOVE & PATIENCE
He may have not completely understood the word from the start but boy did this man know how to show it to Darci.
Darci has two sides to her the sweet timid shy girl that believes no one like Bennet would ever look at a girl like her and the other side that when is behind closed door goes wild. She blushed at his smiles, she crumbles in his arms, she runs from him.
"It's mind-blowing that my sweet, innocent, blush-at-a-simple-hello, bookshop owner responds so intensely to dirty talk."
Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf is not fairytale it’s a hot and steamy read that will have you wishing for more. When opposites attract you never know what you will get.
“Lady Paradox, you are going to kill me.”
I love how Darci stepped up to Annabelle and Aubrey about their hatred and fighting.
“You are both so stubborn and angry and it’s caused a giant rift in my life. So I’m stepping away completely. I refuse to balance any longer.”
Completely, utterly, Ecstatically. Ruined.”
That’s what the authors will do to you as well after you read this book, Ruin you in the best possible way with the there wonderful writing style. I loved the dirty talk and the chemistry these two heated up my screen with. If you have not read the “Leaves of Maple series” I urge you to do so as each and every book will impress you and have you thinking about it even after you finish reading.
"It's cliché but true, Bennett James stole my heart at fourteen with a smile and I've never known how to claim it back."
