ARC received for an honest review

It has been a while since I read a book by Aleya Michelle and was pleased to get an early copy of Tyson Caine.

This is a super sweet friends to lovers story with some darker underlying issues.

I couldn't help feeling for Tyson as he takes on the world, takes care of his brothers and deals with his growing feelings for his best friend Brooklyn.

And Brooklyn, I just adored her from the first word to the last.  She was this beacon of light that just outshone everything and everyone around her.

And when they decide to take their relationship to that next step, you could feel the uncertaintly leap of the pages

"What if we end up hating each other?  We also have a lot of the same friends and interests - how could I avoid her if it ended badly?  Should I risk it?  Should I take a chance on us?

 Is it worth risking losing her forever?  I just can't decide what to do.

I love love loved Tyson's little brother Tom, though it took me a while to warm up to middle brother Tyler, but as the story continued my heart ached for him more and more.

The Caine brother's story was not always an easy one, but I loved the kinship, the solidarity they shared.

There was one thing that irked me though whilst reading - but it was not to do with the story but the writing.

I felt that there was a lot of times where the author used then didn't use contracted worded in the same sentence -  One minute it would be He's... and the next sentence it would be He is and things like that.  It just messed with the flow for me, and at times it made it feel clunky and stilted - but this could just be me.

I really did enjoy the story line, and I look forward to seeing what the next Caine brother brings us.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia. I am in my thirties and happily married with three gorgeous boys. 

My first love has always been reading, so the writing side is very natural to me. Favourite books include anything by Abbi Glines, but Fallen too Far is a favourite, Pulse & Collide by Gail McHugh and The Driven trilogy by K Bromberg.

Hobbies of mine are playing netball; shopping and I love listening to music. I add it into my writing frequently.

I have released four books, and look forward to introducing my readers to new characters.

I am totally enjoying this rollercoaster of being an Indie author and hoping others enjoy my writing as much as I love writing it.
