Eight Second Angel
Jessie Evans is such a beautiful writer. She has outdone herself with Eight Second Angel. I was so thrilled when I heard that Lily Lawson was getting a story. I cried when Lily lost her life and I have been curious and extremely intrigued to see how Lily was going to return. Lily has been sent back to save Canyon's life by taking over Grace's body. He's a bull rider that's living under a cloud of grief and despair for his mistakes. He's planning to end his own life, but before he leaves town he runs into Grace. Lily and Canyon have an instant attraction, but under the circumstances they decide to just be friends. Camping for one week and then they will part ways. Lily only has a few short days to convince Canyon that taking his own life isn't the answer, but she's dealing with her own past memories and sadness, and she has an agenda of her own. Lily and Canyon share a blanket of loneliness, but they also share an electric connection. Will Lily make Canyon see there is more to live for before it's too late? Will Canyon open his heart to Lily and save them both? I absolutely loved this story. I cried from start to finish. Some sad tears, some happy, some shocked. Lily is still as sassy as ever and Canyon is sexy and sweet. Another awesome addition to the Lonesome Point, TX series. Thank you, Jessie for giving us Lily's story!
"Anyone ever tell you you're trouble, Grace?"
"All the time," she said. "But I'm not. I'm just bossy and bad at taking no for an answer."
"Pleasure and hurt are two sides of the same coin."
Oh wow Jessie has done it again… I cried so hard throughout this book, and the tears were well worth it…
Lili is in the “in between” of life and death. She had recently helped John and Percy get together which led to solving her murder in the last book, Ropes and Revenge.
This is such a beautiful story that sends Lili to help someone in need. She is sent down through another body; however, there is only a short time in which she can use this body to try to save Canyon. Canyon is planning to end his life when he saves Lily/Grace. There is an immediate attraction but neither is thinking of anything but the next few days they have left. Lili only has a short time to get Canyon to see that he deserves to live. They end up on a "just friends" road trip. Will they act upon their attraction? Will she be able to convince Canyon that he deserves to live? This was such an amazing story and so deserving of Lili! I loved this book by Jessie!!!
Second Chance At Love
WOW, Jessie Evans never stops delivering! Eight Second Angel is another beautiful story in the Lonesome Point series. Lily Lawson was a loving mother and wife whose life was ended too soon. Her spirit being stuck between the living and the dead, she is sent back in the body of Grace, a young woman who has given up on her own life. Lily has only a few days to save the soul of rodeo cowboy Canyon O’Donnell, who himself is ready to end his life because of the mistakes he made in his past. The only problem is that Lily still carries the memories of her past life.
When Lily wakes up in Grace's body, she finds herself ready to end her life; until two strong arms stop her from jumping. There is an intense attraction between Canyon and Lily, but they decide to stay as friends. As Lily pieces together Grace's and Canyon's connection she discovers that Canyon is heading out of town and going back to the place that was taken away from her. Longing to see her boys again and let them know she is OK, she convinces Canyon to take her along on his road trip. During this time Canyon and Lily's connection gets stronger and Canyon's past is revealed.
Will Lily see her boys? Will the connection between Lily and Canyon become more? Can Lily save Canyon before it is too late?
I fell in love with Lily and Canyon's story. So thrilled that Jessie continued Lily's story even after death. I felt so many emotions of regret, sadness, hope, love, fear, and relief while reading this story. With the tears that I shed I also had many smiling moments. Another great read, one you won't want to miss.
