LEANN'S REVIEW: Grit (Margaret McHeyzer)

tag14photo 3 (18)


Jaeger Dalton wants the land that was promised to him.

Phoenix Ward isn’t about to let anyone take Freedom Run away from her.

He’ll protect what’s his.

She’ll protect what’s hers.

Jaeger is an arrogant ass, but he wants nothing more than Phoenix.

Phoenix is stubborn and headstrong, and she wants Jaeger out of her life.

Her father lost the family farm to gambling debts, but Jaeger isn’t the only one who has a claim to the property.

Sometimes it’s best to let things go.

But sometimes it’s better to fight until the very end.

RELEASE DATE: September 3rd

Sarge walks into the kitchen and looks between the coffee all over the fridge door, the smashed porcelain on the ground and me, chuckling.

“That went well,” he says and lets his own laughter rip from his lips. “Heard her shrieking like a banshee out in the yard.”

“She wants to go home.” I rub my hands over my eyes and try to relax, but knowing she’s pissed isn’t great for me.”

“Women are different,” Sarge says with a shrug.

“Tell me about it.”

“Sometimes it’s best to shut the fuck up and not fight ‘em.” Sarge sits in the chair that Nix was sitting in.

“You pussy-whipped?” I ask as I feel my eyebrows draw together in question.

“Hmmm.” He reverts back to normal Sarge. “Women wanna be told what to do, but you need to make it look like it’s their idea.”

“That’s fucked. She should just do what I say and be happy with it.”

Sarge shakes his head. “She’s right, you’re a dick.”

Margaret always has me in an emotional mess after every one of her reads. At times I want to reject everything I'm reading. Then at the next moment, I am gushing over those special moments. I do have to say I am not really an MC fan. I know you are all gasping... My sister is usually the MC fan, but I am a huge Margaret McHeyzer fan. So when I seen that she was releasing an MC read, well lets face it any read, I could not resist. I jumped at the chance to get my hands on it. 

Margaret does not disappoint. As always, her reads are for the faintest of hearts. What her reads are is, real life. Bad things often happen in real life and Margaret doesn't leave it out of her books. If you are looking for rainbows and butterflies, this isn't the book for you. If you are looking for an emotionally griping read that gives you the ups and downs of life, this is the book for you. 

I love her characters. They are always wonderful. The characters of Grit are no different. Jaeger and Sarge are hilarious. I love them. Phoenix is that fiery girl we all love. McHeyzer's villains are always ruthless and show the cruelest of human traits. My favorite part of this book was realizing that the Pace family was incorporated. I might have squealed (but lets keep that between us!) A great read!!!

I don't do 'normal'.
I've found that the more I write, the more I like being different to other authors. I write in first person, and I love to challenge a reader.
I take the normal and switch it around.
For me, I really enjoy getting a reaction from a reader. So if I can evoke an emotion (regardless of if it's the emotion the reader wants) then I figure that I've done my job as an author I want to be.
I really quite revel in taking people out of their comfort zones and pushing them to read something different.
My genre of writing is, well quite frankly, where ever my mind goes. I won't label myself because I don't like sticking to one genre.
My goal with writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second.
I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept.
I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life's hard enough as it is!
I hope you enjoy my books, I've had a hoot writing them. There's more to come.....
Til next time.
