    One thought on “Familiar Ground”

    1. I like the sound of this one! I'm definitely intrigued :) This one sounds really different and I can't wait to read it! It has an "addiction" theme but this one is different in that it's not the main couple who are addicted, it's their siblings. And THEY are brought together when his sister dies and her brother returns (battling his addiction) leaving them both with a niece neither of them knew existed. I'm very intrigued!

I love what she tries to do, but she falls a bit short. Why? Hmmm EMOTION. She pulls nothing o [...]

    3. 2.5 starsI wish I could say I loved or hated this book but really I just felt "meh" the whole time. Leah has a boyfriend for 40% of the book and 5 days after breaking up with him BAM her and Adam say I love you.Then the whole payback debt storyline?Overall it just wasn't for me.

    4. Hmm, I'm debating whether I can get away with submitting a review that simply says "Read this book! Read this book! Read this book! Read this book!" Just a few paragraphs of that. Maybe in different languages, to keep it interesting? Ha, I know! I'll do like those pictures you see on Facebook all the time and hide a slightly different word or sentence in there, just to see who is paying attention. I'll get into why below but basically what I'm trying to say is that Familiar Ground is a good book [...]

    5. I received a Beta copy of this book in return for an honest review ,,, here it goesThis is a standalone book and it is the story of Leah and Adam ,,, these are two tortured souls, having to deal with secondhand addiction ,,, both of their siblings have been addicted to drugs ,,, neither Leah nor Adam know one another but are brought together through circumstances out of their controlAdam has been checking out a girl for a while now ,,, he's not a stalker, although I might like to examining the t [...]

    6. This book started off strong, but lost me somewhere along the way. It fell flat and didn't feel genuine to me in certain parts.Leah and Adam were brought together by their two drug addicted siblings that had a little girl, Dani. Somehow these drug addicts, that consistently ask their brother and sister for money, were able to keep their 3 year old daughter a secret. Pretty unbelievable if you ask me. Leah is left to take care of Dani, while her brother attends rehab. Adam steps in to help and fa [...]

    7. This book had some potential but ended up being very flat to me. Insta love, Adam calling Leah angel, daisy, etc got old really quick. I skimmed a lot and it dragged most of the book. I almost didn't finish it but I hate doing that. I really almost stopped when (spoiler) Leah got beat up and they way Adam fixed it was to start dealing drugs. Yes this whole book was about how addiction and drugs can mess up your family and you willing sell???

    8. Adam and Leah are brought together by a remarkable young lady Dani. But why they are brought together is a tear jerker. Adam and Leah are siblings to drug addicts. Unfortunately for one of them the one sibling lost their life. (I'm not one for spoilers so bare with me). Adam and Leah are raising their niece together while their sib is in rehab. They have to adjust to their everyday life since their niece has come into their lives. In the meantime, Leah's boyfriend can't get used that Leah now ha [...]

    9. I LOVED this BOOK!!!If I had to sum it up in one word I would say it was the most REFRESHING romance novel I have read in awhile! There were several things I loved about this book, but I will pick three for this review! 1. I loved that the story focused on characters who are impacted by addiction. You never really understand enablers until you've walked in their shoes and this story does a great job of expressing the impact addiction has on loved ones And the emotional toll and blame that a love [...]

    11. DNF at 57%. I just couldn't. I loved the premise of this book but it seriously let me down. I've tried 3 times to keep going but I can't. Just an example of what isn't working for me, the first time the male MC meets his niece he cannot stop talking about the female MC and how hot she is. Let's not forget about how he's been watching her pass by his construction site near her campus every day for a month. You know, just a coincidence.

    12. BETH'S 4.5 STAR REVIEW ** **Complimentary copy provided by author for an honest review**Familiar Ground is a beautiful heartbreaking story that from such a horrible tragic situation comes a love between two people, the love we dream and hope of having some day, a love where two soul mates that were brought together.People who have never had an addiction do not understand how hard it can be – Payne StewartThere truly is no truer statement than that, but what is also true, people who have never [...]

I want to tuck it away under my pillow and have sweet dreams of Adam McAllister.(And if you read the story, you'll under [...]

    14. Familiar Ground is a completely unique story. I found it to be very interesting and different from all the other books out there! Especially if you are tired of the same storied being told over and over again. Adam has just lost his sister to drugs. He is devastated, He has tried so hard to help her over and over.Nothing seemed to work. He eventually tried tough love, and now she is gone and he never got to say good bye.Leah has a brother who shows up out of the blue one day with a little girl i [...]

    15. You know that moment when you watch an author go from great to fabulous to phenomenal. Well author Michelle Lynn just did it and she did it with Familiar Ground. I have read all of Michelle’s books which I love dearly. While doing this I have watched her grow and master her talent and let me tell you this lady has talent. She has upped her game and stepped outside of her comfort zone with Familiar Ground. The is so new and different from her I can’t help but get excited at how well she did w [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this story. It was an emotional but fun read and my first from Michelle Lynn. I will definitely be looking for more from her. I loved the relationship that developed between Adam and Leah ~ that something great and unexpected could come from such an awful situation. They were great together and I loved how they cared for Dani. I was rooting so hard for Shane hoping that he would be able to battle through his addiction and be able to care for Dani. I think that they needed each o [...]

    17. I was given an ARC of Familiar Ground in exchange for an honest reviewd I must give it 5 STARS!Michelle Lynn is awesomely talented as showcased in her newest novel, Familiar Ground. She managed to capture a host of emotions with the themes of the book--love, loss, family, forgiveness and above all romance. Addiction may have brought Adam and Leah together (and threatened to tear them apart). But addiction to their story is what kept me glued to my iPad!

    18. Somewhere between 2.5 and 3.5 stars. While it was pretty well written, IMO, I was never really sucked in.I actually put it down a few times before I actually finished it. Having said that, I did like her writing style, with both the H and h's pov's, so I think I'll probably giver her other titles a chance. Eta a pet peeve of mine: the kid, supposedly 3 years old, acts much older IMOrrr

    19. Before reading this book: oooh, this books sounds so good! I really want to read it. After reading this book: I loved the first 70% of the book but than the author lost me :-(So sad because I really really hated the rest.

    20. Familiar Ground. I have so much to say and so many feelings in my head I need to get down. This was such a freakin emotional read. Holy moly I was NOT expecting to feel all of these crazy emotions. Reading the synopsis I knew this was gonna be a good one. I didn't think I would be crying the all the way through.Just with Chapter 1 alone, I was saddened by the event that was taking place. Adam, a "hot" construction worker, is dealing with the loss of his younger sister. Poor Cassi was a drug addi [...]

    21. ✯✯5 Heart Breaking Stars!✯✯ Two people with drug addicted siblings who now have one connectionDani, a niece they didn't know until one week earlier. Well, I'm going to start off by sounding like a broken record. But, Michelle Lynn has done i t to me again!! I am serious when I say that every story gets better then the last. But, this isn't like the rest of her books. Not only is this a story about 2 people meeting, falling in love and all that good/bad mushy stuff. That's in there but th [...]

    22. 4 Star Review by Jen SkewesFamiliar Ground is about addiction and the effects that it has on those close to the person who is addicted. But what I loved about this story is the uniqueness to it. This is a love story but not about two people who are fighting a drug addiction. It is about two people who love someone who is addicted and how they found each other through their siblings addiction. Adam loved his sister and has always wanted what was best for her. When she needed him he was there for [...]

    23. I received this book by the Author for an honest review. I loved this story although it was not your normal love story of boy meets girl falls in love and lives happily ever after. This has heart ache, death, dealing with drug addicted family members, and realizing love. Leah and Adam do not know each other however; they lead the same life in a way. Both have siblings that are addicted to drugs and only come back into their lives when they need money for more drugs. Each one of them waits for th [...]

    24. Heartbreaking and beautiful. Finding strength in so much darkness. Finding love under less than normal circumstances. The hope for the future is in the hands of so many people, but two lives will never be the same. One has said goodbye, one has said good luck, both unprepared for the surprise left behind in the wake of the tragedy. Both knowing each other on a completely different level. Both completely stealing my heart for the love of a little girl.Addiction is a pretty powerful subject for an [...]

    25. I knew I would enjoy this book as I have other books by Michelle Lynn , but I had no clue I would be crying in the opening pages of the damn book ! If you do not relate and feel a connection with Adam right from the start then the book obviously is not for you. His story of lose is heartbreaking and the raw emotion and description of those moments he shares with Shane and also his parents are just devastating. As we go on and get Leah's story it is just as heartbreaking in a different way. With [...]

    26. check out this review and others atTwinsietalkFacebook/twinsietalk@twinsietalk I received this book from the author for an honest review.Sooo I am a giant fan of Michelle's. I love all her stuff. I love the world and characters she builds. I love that her men are always ready to have the girl who seems to be the one who is gun shy about the relationship. I love the guys show unbelievable patients and persistance to get the woman they love. I love the woman are strong but yet flawed like WE real [...]

    27. Leah Thomas has always been the one her brother Shane counted on when he needed money to score drugs. His doorstep visits were always the same and resulted in Leah bailing him out of a situation. Then one day the visit gets switched up. Instead of asking for money, he asks her to take care of his little girl while he checks in to rehab and begins cleaning up his act. Adam McAllister has tried to help his sister get clean, but her addiction to drugs was too deep. So much so that it caused her dea [...]
