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 its not all black and white. Theres the in-between, and this murky void is where I always tend to land.

The horns. Lies dont always hurt. My lies protected me, but when they are exposed and I can no longer outrun the many shades of truth, Ill 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 thats the way Ive lived my life. Until now. Until Ransom.

Denver Dempsey was a slut for oblivion. Now, shes a slut for love. And its 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 Greerher 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 didnt both love her if hearts werent 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?


Freed carries on from where Used ends, so you will need to read it first.

I have been impatiently waiting for this follow up to Freed.... ah heck, I was just waiting for more John Ransom!!

In the aftermath of Used, things are all a bit topsy-turvy with Denver, Ransom and Greer.  It is a very angst-ridden book as Denver comes to terms with her past, Greer's betrayal, her feelings for Ransom.
Ransom goes from smoking hot cowboy to positively swoonworthy as he falls more into his "mini dom" skin. I mean, giddy up cowboy!!!  This makes him even more perfect for Denver, as I felt she needed that bit of him controlling her to help her mentally get herself through what has happened in her past.

My heart broke for Greer.  Yeah, he did some pretty shitty things, but I couldn't help but want things right for him.  I want him to get forgiveness and redemption.  I just wanted to grab him and give him a big ol' hug.

The sexual chemistry between Ransom and Denver is Off. The. Charts.  I mean seriously HOT.  There is no way that these two could ever not be together.

I felt there was a lot of growth in Denver's character.  She went from the victim in it all to owning her mistakes and apologising for them.  She could move on, could  open up her heart, feel hope, love.  She confronted those demons and left them in the past where they belonged.  The emotions were raw, gritty, real.  There was not simple "I'm sorry.  You're forgiven. Let's forget about it."  The characters had to earn their forgivness.

Ms Halat has drawn me into the world of rodeo, and I don't want to leave (this coming from a girl who thinks horses are the beasts of satan!!).  There are twists and turns in every story and always leaves me wanting more.  My emotions were left in tatters after Freed!

Now the impatient wait for book 3 redeemed begins **stands tapping foot and staring at the calendar**


Since 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.
