SHY KINDA LOVE by Deanna Eshler! @ddeshler


When I was eleven, my best friend died in a car accident. When I was twelve, my mom walked out, leaving only a note to say goodbye. When I was eighteen, I was forced into witness protection.

My new name is Shyanne Adams. To protect myself, and painless existence, I do not live. I do not laugh. I do not love. For the last three years, the only meaningful thing I’ve done is care for the horse I rescued.

But now, at the age of twenty-one, the one person from both my past and present is pushing me to start living. Before I know it, I’m moving in with new friends who make me laugh. And next door is Kade Cross, the guy who wants me to love.

Kade knows that I will complicate his life, but he welcomes the challenge. He sees that I’m broken, but he doesn’t try to fix me. When he knows I’m trying to push him away, he braces for the impact.

What Kade doesn’t know is that I could have to relocate at any time. So I have to decide: is experiencing love for a short time worth the pain of losing it?

This New Adult Romance is an emotional journey through pain and healing as Shyanne decides to start living again, but never forgetting she could lose this life… just like her last one.

If you are not able to read/review, would you be willing to post a teaser on your FB and/or twitter?  I will attach one, but I understand if you are not willing.

MY REVIEW♥ by Neelam


Shyanne Adams has a difficult start in life and is betrayed by her own father. This sets Shy up to never trust the world and never get close to people. She goes through life not connecting to anyone, except, Ryder, a childhood friend. That is until she meets Keegan and Gemma, who become her best friends and a boy named, Kade, who steals her heart. Just when everything is falling into place, the past sneaks up and ruins everything. Shy then has a choice, to open herself back up and let people in or just go on living without personal connections.

What I really liked about this book is that Shy uses horses as her therapy to ultimately heal her broken soul. As a horseback rider, I know the value of trusting a horse and the “therapy” involved in the relationship between horse and rider. Not only do you see these benefits with Shy, but with another character as well. I really enjoyed “watching” the progress these characters made while caring for equally damaged horses. I thought this book was well written and grabbed a hold and never let go. Shy Kinda Love had all the right ingredients: angst, healing, action and romance. I even ugly cried and hid my kindle once…ok maybe twice.

Ms. Eshler, you have a new fan. I can’t believe this is your first book. I look forward to reading more from you in the future.
