Freed by Lynetta Halat

Truth. Pain. Freedom. An awakening like no other. When life is determined to buck you off, dig in and ride hard. The bull. The most dangerous lies are the ones we tell ourselves. To survive, I have to face the truth. Easier said than done when it’s not all black and white. There’s the in-between, and this murky void is where I always tend to land. The horns. Lies don’t always hurt. My lies protected me, but when they are exposed and I can no longer outrun the many shades of truth, I’ll be in for one hell of a reckoning. The ride. From the outside, my life looks like one big adventure after another. But, there is no freedom in anarchy, and that’s the way I’ve lived my life. Until now. Until Ransom. Denver Dempsey was a slut for oblivion. Now, she’s a slut for love. And it’s that kind of thinking that got her in trouble in the first place. Ransom awakens Denver in ways she never imagined, but when her true feelings send her reeling, will they catapult her into the arms of Greer—her ex best-friend-with-benefits? After never loving anyone, herself included, she now loves two. One kept her alive. One teaches her how to live. If they didn’t both love her … if hearts weren’t bound to be broken, it would be the stuff dreams are made of. Will Denver remain locked up in the bullpen, or is she strong enough to open the chute and be freed?

This is one book I was dying for. I haven't been able to get the last line of the first book outta my head! At the end of the first book, Ransom made a proposition to Denver and a promise of an awakening. Those two little words held so much power.

This book wasn't exactly what I was expecting but I loved it. At 90% there was a bit of information that completly blew my mind! And that shower scene was Fing HOT! 

Denver is still trying to deal with things that happened. Her biggest hurdle is learning to love herself. Ransom is bound and determined to make her see what he sees in her. She doesn't realize how much of a fighter she is, but Ransom does.

Ransom is dealing with things in his life as well. I loved getting a peek into his life. He's more than just a gruff cowboy. He's got a loving, tender side about him.

Greer.....well, I didn't think she could do it, but she did. I was adamant that Greer could not be redeemed. While he hasn't been fully redeemed in my eyes I understand more about his actions. Forgiveness is a powerful thing and he's working hard to make amends.

And now my plea for Austin's story.......Please, please, please! I've gotta know what is in store for Austin. I want NEED to know his story!

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Meet the Author

author2Since the dawn of time, Lynetta Halat has lived to read and has written innumerable stories and plays. A lover of good books, bad boys, and kickass tunes, she'd always dreamt of penning books that people could connect with and remember. She also has a secret penchant for wringing the emotions out of unsuspecting readers, and she collects reader's tears in much the same way that wine connoisseurs collect their favorite vintage. Her first novel, Every Rose, was the perfect catalyst to launch her into the world of publishing, effectively burrowing her way into the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world. Everything I've Never Had was her follow-up adult romance novel. Now, she has penned Used, a New Adult Romance that she hopes sinks its teeth into you and doesn't let go.
Her love of the English language prompted her to pursue a Master's degree in English from Old Dominion University in Virginia, where she also minored in snark and interpretive dance. She lives somewhere along the Mississippi Gulf Coast with her adorable husband, two amazing sons, and two loveable dogs. When she's not writing riveting stories, she likes to focus on her macramé art and her scouring of eBay, where she buys locks of hair from her favorite rock stars, most especially Bret Michaels and Dave Grohl.
