Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Full Circle series special?

A - When I began to write these books, I wanted to create something that portrayed exactly the kind of books I enjoy. My top picks are usually young adult contemporary with a hint of mystery, new adult romance, southern literature, and books with real life situations. Basically, anything with love, real life, drama, and heartache. Think a YA Nicholas Sparks novel.

The Full Circle books are a great combination of these genres. You'll find the series focuses on dating, drama, and real life situations, with a hint of mystery and suspense.
Overall, the Full Circle series is designed to keep you turning the pages- Imagine Pretty Little Liars colliding with The Longest Ride.

Q - What order should I read the books?

A - These books must be read in the following order:
- Losing Charley
- Finding Charley
- Loving Charley

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?

"The Full Circle Series is full of heartache, drama, and healing, all tied up in a sweet Southern bow." Jillian Dodd, USA TODAY Bestselling Author

"The Full Circle Series will wind its way around the reader's heart. Casey Peeler's writing will capture your attention, compelling you to continue reading until the very end." ~ Nicole Reed, New York Times Bestselling Author

If you enjoy young adult romances that are filled with real world situations that feature positive moral and values the Full Circle Series is for you.

Q - Can readers get the whole series in one set?

A - Sure. I’ve put together the Full Circle Series Box Set. It will save your wallet a few bucks. Check out my author page here at Amazon for more details, and a full list of my available titles.

And thanks for reading y’all!

Wow! This book was amazing. It's really hard for me to write a non spoiler review, but no worries I won't include any spoilers.

In the beginning of the book Charley is dating Dylan. Something happens and she ends the relationship by totally avoiding him. Cash (who Charley calls Cash Money) is her rock. Charley describes Cash as her "knight in an F250 and a pair of Carhartts." I love that description of Cash. Charley goes off to college and Cash stays on the farm. Charley loves Cash but she wants to experience college and find herself. Cash is fine with that. Cash tells her, "I am willing to wait, continue being your best friend, boyfriend, continue being your rock, but I'm not leaving you ever again."

While at college Charley becomes friends with the girls on her dorm floor. She also meets Joe. Joe seems to be the perfect person for Charley to explore college with. Charley goes back and forth between Joe and Cash. Both Joe and Cash know about each other and form a friendship.

The characters were well written, which allows the reader to bound quickly with them. The end of the book took a turn I never expected. There's a huge cliffhanger. You are definitely left wanting more.

Did not like like this at all. I was completely bored at page forty nine of this. Not going in the right direction for me. Too many names to absorb in this all at once, and for a girl who has been drugged and date raped she was already forgetting who really cared for her. Ogling at a party some sick called Joe, I called it quits. No apologies here, because I am a harsh critic of what I do not like.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Country lovin' Stars! 19 November 2013
By Lydia - HEA Bookshelf | MBMB - Published on

"...a night I thought was going to be special has turned into the biggest nightmare of my life."

One night.
It only took one night for Charley's life to change. What she thought she knew was no longer true. Decisions she thought she was sure of were quickly changing. After graduating high school, Charley decided to go off to a different College than what she had originally planned. She was looking to start fresh, to be independent.... free. What Charley did not know was that no matter where she went, her past would follow. Her fears would catch up with her.

Luckily for her, she had a wonderful guy in her life. Cash. Oh, Cash. I loved him from the get-go. He's 100% country and damn sexy. Cash was more than Charley's "best friend since they were kids".... he was more than her recent "ex-boyfriend". Cash was her rock, her constant, what kept her whole, and Charley was well aware. But, she was also set on experiencing the "college life" without being tide down. And I get that. Hell, I could relate a lot to the things she did while at College with her new friends, the "Kluft Girls". BUT, I loved Cash too much to completely agree with her pushing him away.

"Charley, I'm not sure what you want, but I know what I want. You. I am willing to wait, continue being your best friend, boyfriend, continue being your rock, but I'm not leaving ever again. I love you and always will."

*Sigh* See??? Cash was just freaking PERFECT... at least for me. This is why I found myself feeling frustrated with Charley, but at the same time, not. And here's why.

“Charley, you are truly beautiful. I don’t know what you are hiding or scared of, but I want to know you. All of you.” - Joe

Joe was what Charley called a Yankee. They met in class where they ended up being paired up for an important project. Joe was VERY hot, athletic (played lacrosse) and down right dreamy. Simply put, I liked him. Ha! I liked him a lot, which is why I never got fully pissed at Charley for not staying committed to Cash. In fact, during every Joe-Charley scene, I was Team Joe. Yet, during every Cash-Charley scene, I was Team Cash. Dammit! Like I said, I liked them both. So basically, I swooned for both of them but felt bad, too. You see, this was a weird "love triangle" for me. Both Cash and Joe knew about each other and although they weren't exactly thrilled about the whole situation, they were okay with it. I guess it helped that they both knew from the very beginning that Charley wanted to be officially single, but still, I kind of had a tough time wrapping my head around it. In all fairness, Joe and Cash (MY new book boyfriends, FYI), wanted to keep Charley safe. That was what mattered to them.

This book was a solid 4 Stars read for me until the end. That ending surprised me and left me desperately wanting more, which is why I decided to give it 4.5 Stars instead. Not only does it end in a cliffhanger, but it ends just when a HOLY CRAP moment smacks you right in the face!!! No wonder Bethany was flipping out when she first read and reviewed it. Hahaha!! But seriously, I was very surprised with how it ended and I'm VERY MUCH looking forward to the sequel. This is the type of book that after finishing it, you will probably want to go over certain details and discuss the whole thing with friends. Hell, that's what Bethany and I did when I finished it the other night! And that was just another plus for me. Overall, "No Turning Back" was a fun, light story that I truly enjoyed reading.

"You are what makes my heart beat. I love you. No matter what you say, I will always love you, and I will not let you go. I will fight for you. Now, tomorrow, and forever."

3.0 out of 5 stars A Great Plot....... 31 December 2013
By Helen Williams (All Booked Out) - Published on

<b>3.5 stars</b>

Casey's debut novel, I really enjoyed the story, it is full of fun flirty friendships both at home and at Charley's new College and a bit of a love triangle going between her, Cash ( omg) & Joe ( equally omg)

There is some serious issues dealt with right at the beginning and this is an undercurrent running the entire book, it is this which leads to a twist which I at one point thought I had figured out 'who done it' but then they didn't do it........what I expected them to I was was like 'damn Casey' You Good! It is hard to explain without giving anything away! and I am not giving anything away as it will spoil it!

When the end came, the twist hit me smack bang in the face and I thought blow me down with a feather.....leave it to the end.....why don't you?!? I was right was who I thought it was.

I found the listing of the friends names when Charley saw them a bit long winded, I preferred the 'Kluft girls'. Some of the scenes were a little stop starty but that's just my nit pic.....

Now, where is the next book! I can not wait to find out what happens and I am going to read it in the same accent I read this one in, my take on a southern country style, it was fabulous in my head!

By Britt K - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So far this has been a fine read. I would recommend this for either right- before- bed, or on the beach, a quiet afternoon, etc. There are quite a few dynamic features to the story line. A few twists and tunes, and the characters are pretty well developed. There are a few parts that could be edited slightly better, but I do know most authors on here prefer for their readers to help them out in this aspect.
It was not hard reading by any means, but it was also not an elementary level book. Be prepared for some love scenes. But honestly, sometimes they do add to the storyline, right?
I hope to either purchase more in this series (if there is one) or get the author motivated to write more! Not that this was left with just a cliffhanger or anything, I have just loved how the storyline was developed, and would love to know where this could head into the future. Knowing how the characters have developed, interacted, and have grown leaves me with a lot of hope for more. I always love series/ books where there is a spin- off into a similar setting, but with acquaintances that the characters had, or will have.
Overall, this is a great value and I would highly recommend it. It is a great value for the price, and it simply cannot be beat! I will be purchasing more from this author in the future, and look forward to new releases.
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazingly jaw-dropping! 3 October 2013

WOW...that about sums up how I feel about No Turning Back by Casey Peeler. Throughout most of the book, I thought something and then right at the end Casey decided to pull the rug out from under my, leaving my mind spiraling out of control. Oh Casey, Casey, Casey how you love to mess with my head.

For the sake of not spoiling this book and the jaw-dropping twist I am going to have to make this review very vague. Trust me, you don't want any detail spoiled because you want that OMG moment to hit you like a brick.

No Turning Back is the story of Charley, who is your typical country girl. She loves to hunt, fish, work on her families farm, and basically anything outdoors. She is dating Dylan, who is on her high school swim team with her and he is the towns resident bad boy. Charley doesn't care, she just wants to be with him, but one night Dylan does the unthinkable and changes Charley's life forever. Charley contacts the only person she knows she can trust to be there for her and to protect her, and that person is Cash. Cash is her neighbor and one hot neighbor he is. Before high school graduation Charley has plans to stay near home to go to college, but soon she realizes that she needs to leave home to live her life. So, she leaves Cash behind and goes off to college at Southern.

At Southern Charley is determined to live her life for her and not tie herself down, even to the one person she knows she should be with and that's Cash. Soon after moving in to her dorm called Kluft, she makes a lot of good friends some of who are on the swim team, and they no very well that Charley is a fish in the water, so they talk her into joining the team and the sport she walked away from to avoid ever running into Dylan.
Soon Charley's life is moving along, she has great friends, she is back in love with swimming and her and Cash are still close, and in walks Jackalope Joe. They hit it off instantly, while working on their Freshman Seminar project. He likes to call her Squirrel which I happen to think is adorable.

As much as she moves away from Dylan he keeps finding ways to keep her under his control, and soon Charley has no choice but to let her in on her secret because Dylan is starting to interfere in her life. Both Charley and Cash are comfortable with Joe looking out for Charley when Cash is not around. However, Dylan has other plans, he has someone on the inside of Charley's new life, but who is it? Cash, Joe and Charley are racking their brains to figure it out with the help of some unexpected people.

Can Charley finally get away from Dylan? Can she live her life with no fear of him coming back to hurt her or those who are important to her? Who is working with Dylan? These are all answers you will have to figure out yourself. Buy this book! Yes, there is a cliffhanger, and oh my what a cliffhanger it is, but it leaves you anticipating the next book Finding Charley due out Spring 2014.

Casey you pulled off a great debut novel, full of twists, suspense, laughs and some very hot moments. This book was wonderfully written, and flowed very smoothly. I look forward to reading more from you. Congratulations on your book, I wish you all best.

And BOOM ... she left us hanging ... dang it Casey ... (lucky for me I am behind in discovering this series and the other books are already out)

This book was amazing!! I love a good college romance and the characters in this book are just extremely loveable!! The twists and turns kept me captivated wondering when Dylan was gonna show up or what was going to happen next! I love that for the most part this story was normal ... down to earth ... and mostly easy to relate to. Great book Casey I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series.

Charley is a good ole country girl who loves her small town and her farm life. In the beginning we start with Charley in High School and she's dating the popular bad boy Dylan. One night after a party something awful happens to Charley, something that should never happen to anyone. Afterwards Charley calls the one person she has always been able to count on ... her best friend Cash. She leans on Cash and he keeps her secret, and because of this their bond grows even stronger. Charley and Cash date some, but because Charley knows that she needs to find herself and experience College fully she breaks off her relationship with Cash before graduation.

Now after graduation ... Charley has already decided to stay in her small town and attend college locally at LRC, however all the sudden she feels like that's not the right decision and that she needs to get away from everything. So after a visit to her grandmothers and a long talk with her mother her plans have changed and she is now attending Southern College, still a small school with a beautiful campus but away from home which she needs.

During her first days at Southern Charley meets several new people who she feels will no doubt play a huge role in her college life. Some great girls who are in her dorm along with a lacrosse hottie named Joe. She immediately is attracted to Joe and he feels the same way. But she has had her time with the popular bad boy and doesn't want to go there again. However those make-you-melt blue eyes win her over and they develop some semblence of a relationship. They have a class together and end up working on a relationship building project which brings them closer together as they learn all about each other. However Charley feels guilty for any sort of relationship that she has with Joe because she loves Cash too.

"I already know how this scenario will play out.
Girl falls for boy, boy falls for girl, s*** happens, and boy breaks girl’s heart."

Cash ... oh how I love that sweet sexy country boy!! Cash and Charley have been friends since they could walk. He seems to be your boy next door, strong, loyal, charming, easy going, and HOT! They grew up together, he keeps her secrets, they were neighbors and friends for years and Charley knows that Cash loves her. She loves him and knows that he is there for her in any capacity that she will allow.

"Whether you like it or not, you are my Char-coal and I’m your Cash Money. We’re destined for each other; I just know it!”

As Charley continues on in college she begins to get pictures (of her with Joe, of her friends at college), cards (reminding her of that awful night), messages from Dylan reminding her that he has the upper hand and that he has eyes everywhere. She only wants to put the past behind her but Dylan won't let it happen. Who is helping Dylan and how is he keeping tabs on her at college??

Will Charley ever be free from Dylan ??

"He’s my anchor; I need him even when the storms are rough, but I crave him more when the sea is calm."
