His life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion. Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling. He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t. The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated.Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, that he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses. Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed.Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance.Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile.She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.The man she nearly got killed.

Sutton and Emrys are so broken but also they are strong and determined."Your heart's bruised, too, Em. It's sore and tired of being kicked around. Give me a shot to take care of it. I'll do my best to trust you with the pieces of mine you've been collecting from the start. You found them, it's only fair to keep them."Th 4 STARS There isn't a book from Jay Crownover that I didn't enjoy.I love her stories and her writing is addictive!Shelter was another great story!It's about forgiveness and love.

A place that would harbor it safe and sound for all those complicated emotions. “ We do love our cowboys and we sure are devouring the Getaway Series by Jay Crownover, starting with Retreat and now Shelter. Each book has been a hit, providing emotion, passion and suspense.Retreat was Cyrus, the eldest Warner brother, and Leora’s love story, and in that we briefly met Emrys and middle brother, single Dad, Sutton, and itching to learn more about this complicated man, yet never considering how painfully his and Emrys’ story would play out. Their story was quite morose and very raw. A story of survival with the desire for love at it’s core, and it was one that constantly reached out and touched our hearts.Sutton Warner is a troubled man plagued by demons from his past and present. Sutton struggles to find his place in the Warner Ranch Tourism business, wrestles with bad choices, and strives to be the best Dad he can be for his dear little six year old daughter, Daye. Sutton is desperate to shake the guilt that constantly weighs him down, sadly finding solace in the bottom of a Whiskey bottle. Sutton did indeed cut a sad and lonely figure.‘He might not be able to see all the things that made him a good man without him having to try, but I did. I could see them as clear as day. I could see how much he loved his family and his daughter, even when he faltered.’Sutton feels guilty about a lot of things, and top of that list is his misplaced belief that he failed Leora’s best friend Emrys during a shocking situation that would ruin them, distance them yet in the same breath bond them together. Blaming himself for what unfolded on that fateful day. “These scars are nothing compared to yours.” Emrys Santos is a woman of substance, if only she, herself could see how beautiful she is inside and out. If she could shake the misconception that she’s just a pretty face. Emrys is certainly beautiful, but she’s also compassionate, strong, independent and fighting her own demons, wanting to confront Sutton Warner about what they experienced on that devastating day on the mountain.‘I didn’t feel like I needed to be perfectly put together when I was with him. I could just be me. A little lost. A lot confused and someone who was still suffering.’The intensity of feelings between Sutton and Emrys was palpable as they faced their demons head on, let down their guards and opened their hearts. Their story was sad and tragic with a feeling of unease throughout, yet the chemistry between them positively ignited! “I ran from you because you told me to go, and it was easier to leave than it was to fight to stay.” The cherry on the cake was the cute, bubbly little old soul, six year old Daye. What a sweetheart. This little girl carried so much on her tiny shoulders. The interactions between Sutton and Daye was quite simply wondrous, yet it was the relationship between Daye and Ems that really took our breath away. This aspect was beautiful and showed so much growth in Ems and her feelings.‘He’d given me what he could, and that was still more than the men who had come before him.’Jay Crownover has so far delivered two very different stories about two very different men, providing surprises along the way, and the perfect balance of romance, suspense, heartache and passion. This author really reaches into the heart of the reader and spares it no expense. In Shelter she has perfectly set up Lane’s book, the third in the series, making us desperate to get our hands on it!

    “We’ve been on a collision course from day one. We were always going to crash into one another.” I love the authors who ditch the ordinary for the extraordinary, who take risks in their writing, who deliver the different to readers. Every time I open a book by Jay Crownover, I know it’s going to be a voyage into unchartered territory. Just like all of Jay Crownover’s other out-of-the box books, Shelter is UNIQUE, UNPREDICTABLE, and UTTERLY BRILLIANT. The Getaway series continues to be one INC “We’ve been on a collision course from day one.

Every time I open a book by Jay Crownover, I know it’s going to be a voyage into unchartered territory. Just like all of Jay Crownover’s other out-of-the box books, Shelter is UNIQUE, UNPREDICTABLE, and UTTERLY BRILLIANT. The Getaway series continues to be one INCREDIBLY INTENSE ADVENTURE!!!Shelter is tale of tough love but also a story of survival, second chances, and strength. Shelter is a roller coaster ride of an adventure with twists and turns, and ups and downs—one that takes the senses for a spin. Shelter is a fierce and fiery flame of a love story that burns all over. Shelter is a fusion of feels where no emotion is left untouched. Shelter is UNPUTDOWNABLE. Shelter is EVERYTHING!!!!Jay Crownover has truly outdone herself with this masterful, intensely mesmerizing portrait of a broken hero and heroine who fight the hardest of battles to become whole. Emerys and Suttons’ life-altering journey continues in Shelter. A hero and heroine, both strong and stubborn, may learn that the best way to heal and put their broken pieces together may be to come together as one. ”All his broken pieces made mine seem less jagged.” Like older brother, Warner, Sutton is a man’s man. Tall. Rugged. Handsome. Brooding. Stubborn. Tough. Tender. Sutton is my favorite Warner brother and near the top of all of Jay Crownover’s complex and tough but tender heroes. ”Even when I didn’t want to want you, I did.” Emerys is a tall beauty who sees the light in others’ dark. She is the perfect complement to Sutton: the soft to his hard. Emerys is as bold as she is beautiful, and one of the strongest heroines I’ve encountered. ”I like all your pieces, Sutton...You keep dropping them and I keep picking them up.” Sutton and Emerys are on fire together!!! Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE! This hero and heroine are imperfectly perfect but so perfect for each other in every way. It’s as if Sutton and Enerys were forged together by fate, calming each others’ storms. ”You feel like fire wrapped up in silk.” I LOVED THIS HEART-POUNDING ROMANCE!!! My heart pounded out of my chest where I forgot to breathe. Tears streamed down my face as Shelter—this mix of SORROW, SWEETNESS and SOUL—struck me hard, igniting every emotion. Shelter struck me everywhere!!! I was so lost in this story that I didn’t want to be found. Humming with rich descriptions, deep emotions, and razor-sharp intensity, Shelter tears at the heartstrings in a journey felt all over. What a RUSH!!! Twists and turns. Fire and ice. Dark and light. Love and loss. Chase and calm. This book BUZZES WITH EXCITEMENT!!!Shelter is a heart-clenching thriller of a tale of love wrapped in heroism, heartbreak, hope, and healing that strikes straight to the core. Shelter is the BEST EMOTIONAL CHAOS!!! Like a shard of glass, Shelter shines and then cuts deep. An ADRENALINE RUSH spiked with HEAT and HEART, Shelter is an ADVENTURE lived and a story loved long after the last page. ”What do you get out of any of this, Em?”“I get you.” 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heart-striking and soul-shining starsA MUST-MEET ROMANCE!!! ➡️ http://amzn.to/2BU7hNyWebsite: http://www.bookaliciousbabes.comFacebook: http://www.facebook.com/bookaliciousb...Readers Group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/BBBBoo...

    This series is just THE BEST! I’ve never met a Jay Crownover romance I didn’t like, so I was INCREDIBLY EXCITED to dive into the next book in her amazing Getaway Series!

I’ve never met a Jay Crownover romance I didn’t like, so I was INCREDIBLY EXCITED to dive into the next book in her amazing Getaway Series! Sutton Warner and Emrys Santos are our main characters and they are just a mess! Broken, beaten inside and out, these two have been through hell and they’ve never figured out how to heal. When our determined heroine finally finds out how, she travels back to the “scene of the crime” and pushes our stubborn as sin hero to face their ghosts. To say that Sutton wasn’t interested in reliving that brutal day would be putting it mildly. Emrys sure has her work cut out for her. “We still need to have that talk, Sutton.”“I can think of a thousand better things to do with that mouth of yours than talk, Em.” Jay Crownover takes us on one angsty and sexy ride with SHELTER. I loved EVERY SINGLE SECOND of it! This series just keeps getting better and better and this is only book two! Sutton was a great hero…of course giving me palpitations every other chapter made me want to reach through the pages and strangle the man, but it didn’t make FALLING for him any less inevitable. And Em was so strong, feisty at times, and oh so determined. I loved her strength and her all around vibe. She was the PERFECT missing puzzle piece to Sutton’s heart and soul “I’ve never been with someone who looks like you, that feels as good as you do, and tastes as sweet as you do.” Brilliant, exciting, entertaining, sexy as all get out! I devoured this book from start to finish! I adored Cy in RETREAT…I worshiped Sutton in SHELTER. Now, I’m ready to FALL HARD for Lane in ESCAPE, book three in this AMAZING series, coming at the end of January 2018! If you are looking for your next series to fall in love with, look no further than this one right here! Jay NEVER disappoints and I just know you’ll not only fall in love with her characters, but her impeccable writing will cement your fate, for sure!

It a sweet story of finding yourself and knowing and going after what you want. I very much was rooting for these two. Their journey isn’t easy but it’s necessary.I liked the narration but I didn’t love it. I didn’t feel much emotion for either narrator, it felt more like they were just reading the words and not giving much emotion or inflection to their voices. You get used to it; it is not terrible just okay.*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

However right from their devastating start, I was hooked.As I was reading, Taylor Dane's song "Shelter" ran through my head quite often, and it really is the them song of our lovelies relationship.Sutton could have turned out as a character that you could really dislike, however you just can't. He has some deep, dark issues that could ruin him. Emrys runs. Runs from love. Runs from fear. Runs from happiness. Until now.I adore her. She is so strong, so loving. So no putting up with Sutton's self destructive wayIt was wonderful to see them healing each other.There is plenty of drama and intrigue in this story. Some outcomes that I certainly wasn't expecting!The little scene stealer in this whole story is Daye. Oh my goodness I fell in love with her the first time she was on the page.I was swept away with the story, the Wyoming setting, the Warner family. Through it all this family stays strong!Now I need to go back and read retreat, and can't wait for the 3rd brother's story in the new year.

It was definitely a difficult and painful tale to take in, but will no doubt cling to your heart and soul long after you’ve set the book down. This is yet just another proof of what I truly adore about Jay Crownover and her writing—she pushes you to the edge of your limits, but she also knows exactly where to draw the line. It certainly makes for an incredibly memorable journey filled to the brim with a kind of adventure that’s nothing short of keeping you on your toes—every chapter and every moment in between just burrows its way deep into your heart that you’ll be carrying it around with you for a really long time.If you’ve read Retreat , the first book in the Getaway series, you’d know how much Em and Sutton have already gone through. The beginning of their story killed me—it’s one of the most heart-stopping and soul-tearing parts I’ve had to read, but it’ll make you understand just how deep their connection runs. These two were more than bound together by what they witnessed and experienced in that mountain; now, it’s even so much more than needing each other to heal and get the closure they both badly needed to move on from that incident.Diving into Shelter, I don’t think I really knew what I was getting myself into, regardless of where Retreat took me. The peak of Em and Sutton’s story almost blindsided me, which made this book even more outstanding to me. I got myself stuck on the healing process of these two, that I was a little dumbstruck when it suddenly threw me a curveball that I never saw coming. Truthfully, you’ll be flying through the pages of this book because it’s just that addictive—you won’t want to stop until you figure out what’s happening or where it’ll take you next.And the characters—the Warners have indeed already won my heart from the very start, but the more you get to know them, the more they steal every single piece of you. The loyalty, the love, the passion, the overprotective streak, the lengths they’re willing to go to, and the sacrifices they’re willing to make for their family just simply owned me. Hell, my entire being never really stood a chance.Sutton Warner was the perfect blend of broody and surly, mixed with a sweetness and thoughtfulness that will melt you all over. He struggled and made mistakes along the way, but it just made his redemption that much more gratifying and emotional. He’s one of the BEST heroes (and dads) I’ve read about, that’s for damn sure. With Emrys Santos, it was her bravery and strength that won me over completely. She’s a city girl through and through, just like her best friend Leo, but she proved how far she was willing to go for the people she loves and cares for—for those who matter the most to her—no matter how messy or dangerous the situation was. I honestly wasn’t a big fan of her in the first book, but she blew me right out of the water and left me in awe after this one.Jay Crownover truly went above and beyond with Shelter—it gave me chills and left me with feels like there’s no tomorrow. The Getaway Series has clearly and successfully climbed its way up in becoming my top favorite series from her. If you’re looking for a romance novel that will rob you of your breath and lodge your heart up your throat; one that’s full of emotion and heat, and will take you on one hell of a thrilling ride—better get on the Getaway train. You will not regret a single second of meeting these overly passionate and enthralling Warner boys. They’re most definitely not your typical cowboys. Their stories just deserve to be read, devoured and taken in bit by freaking bit.Follow me on: Instagram • Facebook • Twitter

I started Shelter knowing that it was going to be hard to put down and knowing my feels would be going all over the place. And you know what? I was right. Once I started this book, I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. You don’t have time to be bored in this book as there is always something happening.Emrys and Sutton both have a lot of issues to solve due to the events from Retreat (hint, go read it if you haven’t ;)) and both of them are dealing with them differently. Emrys ran the first chance she got until she realized that it wasn’t a solution while Sutton simply tried to forget his failure in alcohol and pain killers.When Emrys finally decides to confront Sutton and wants to tell him everything she needs to tell him, she butts head with a Sutton she doesn’t know and who is hell bent on ignoring her existence. But she’s done running away and the cowboy won’t scare her away.Sutton’s life really took a bad turn and he is in no rush to come out until it’s too late and his family finally pushes him to deal with his problems or else, they were going to take matter into their own hands. It’s the wake up he needs but working his problems isn’t easy and Emrys’ presence at the Ranch isn’t helping as she is a reminder of his failure.But even as Emrys and Sutton’s undefined relationship starts, nothing is ever easy for the cowboy has more problems seems to follow him. Trying to deal with his issues is already hard for him but whenever something else big falls into his path, he only finds comfort with Emrys. They actually both find comfort in each other but just for different reasons. They complete one another even if they seem to be the opposite one of another.I wouldn’t say their issues were due to a miscommunication because it wasn’t. They both carried guilt about what happened, but neither seemed to understand that at first, still engrossed in trying to subdue their own guilt. Working through those isn’t an easy path and as you follow them throughout the book as they try and you can only go through their feelings at the same moment as you get so engrossed with their story. I’m finishing this review because I feel I might spoil it if I continue and I want you guys to discover and love this book as much as I did.But overall, I’m looking forward to the next book and I recommend this series with the highest of 5 stars because it has everything. Jay Crownover has a way of expressing the thoughts and feelings of characters so perfectly. This is a 5 stars series for me all the way. So go grab this second book or if you haven’t started the series, go grab Retreat.I was giving an advanced copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

He’s protective, no nonsense and headstrong. People fear and respect him. Lane is the youngest Warner brother. He’s laid back, easy going and always with a smile. He’s the one people like to talk to. Then there’s Sutton. He the classic middle child, he goes with the flow, makes the best of whatever situation is thrown his way. Basically he tries to keep everyone happy, he’s ultimate people pleaser.Lately, Sutton Warner is far from the people pleaser. As a matter of fact, he’s about the most disagreeable, obnoxious and rude Warner the likes of Wyoming has ever seen and he most definitely is not making the best of the situation that’s been thrown his way. In fact, he’s making a big mess of it. In his defense, he’s had a rough few months. He’s been shot and left for dead, his ex is using his weakness to her advantage, his little girl is seeing him in a way he never wanted her to and the women he almost died saving and who he sent away is stuck in his mind as a constant reminder of how he failed to keep her safe. Now she’s back in town and she’s made it clear she’s not going anywhere anytime soon.Emrys Santos is a fixer. Yep, she likes to fix people (men specifically) and send them on their way. She’s never lets anyone get too close, except for her best friend Leo. When she decided to help Leo work through a rough breakup things, took a turn she would have never seen coming. The vacation with Leo to the Warner ranch turned into them being caught in the middle of a drug war, and she and Sutton being tortured and with Sutton Warner almost dying trying to defend her. Although they had a rough experience there was an undeniable spark between them but when Sutton pulls through he sends her away basically crushing her. Em leaves to heal her own wounds and scars both visible and invisible. Although there have been bad guys vs. the good guys story lines in other series by Jay Crownover, this was really different, specifically this book. There was something about this book that made me feel like it was more than just a storyline. Specifically when Sutton and Em describe how they saw themselves. It wasn’t just a story being told, it was almost like it was someone’s story being told. Although these two characters lived totally different lives, they were so very similar. It’s like they were mirror images of each other. They had matching scars on the inside and outside. They both struggled with who they were. They weren’t really being true to themselves; they were living for what others wanted or thought of them; not for whom they truly were. In fact, neither really knew who they actually were. I don’t always read the author’s notes but this time I did and when I did I totally understood why I felt the way I did. I liked this book a lot; it had a lot to the things I love. A single dad, family oriented, male sensitivity, inner struggle, heartache, heartbreak; I loved all of the characters, most of who were introduced in the first book in the series “Retreat”. It gave characters beyond the three brothers with the possibility of their own storyline. I’m anxious to read Lane’s story and I’m very curious if we’ll get a story for Ten and Webb. I’m even wondering if there’s something in the works for Rodie. What I also liked about this book was the realization that Sutton and Em came to about themselves. I can’t really say what that is because it would give away somethings I think you’d appreciate more if you read them for yourself.This is book two in the “Getaway” Series. I actually hadn’t read retreat so I cheated and listened to the audio book before reading “Shelter”. I highly recommend reading the first book. Although “Shelter” starts off with a background of what happened in “Retreat” there are some other aspects of that book that help with this one. Another solid hit for Jay Crownover.

One, Sutton didn't write a note to his brother's telling them to have Em leave in the first book. He texted it to them. Two, her parent's came to see her in Florida when she wouldn't respond to them and in this one it is referenced that they haven't seen her since before the incident. This just wasn't my favorite. Reading the 3rd one now.

Victims of a major crime that took place in Getaway, Emrys and Sutton find their way back to one another. Their connection in book 1, Getaway, makes Shelter that much more important and very much needed. Shelter is their story. It's their chance to heal. But will their healing process be enough to bring them together or pull them further apart. Jay writes characters that her readers fall in love with. There are surprises along the way for readers when we least expect it. Making Shelter a cross between romance with a hint of suspense. I thought there was no way the Getaway series could get better than Cy and Leo's story. In walks Sutton and Emrys with a story of their own, that must be heard.

After the harrowing climax at the end of Retreat, however, I was particularly anxious to return to The Getaway Series for Emrys and Sutton’s story. The cowboy and the city girl didn’t part on the best terms, leaving unresolved feelings and unfinished business between them. In Shelter, the two are reunited in the Wyoming wilderness with more adventure and romance in store for them. Theirs is a love story that’s heartbreakingly beautiful and gut-wrenchingly angsty, filled with regret and uncertainty, but also happiness and hope. If you like your romance with a side of danger and suspense and a whole lot of feels, Shelter is a riveting, thrilling page-turner.From the moment he met Emrys Santos in Retreat, Sutton Warner hardened his heart against her, instinctively knowing she could get under his skin like no other woman had before. The single dad was determined to keep Leo’s best friend at arm’s length, hurting her before she could return the favor. What Sutton didn’t plan on was Em’s newfound resilience and resolution to confront both her physical and emotional scars. Shelter brings together these two damaged souls, helping them to heal from the past and find a way to move on with their lives.Despite Sutton’s best efforts to drive Emrys away, there’s no denying the attraction between them. There’s a mutual desire that they both seem determined to fight...at least until it’s too palpable to ignore. With combustible chemistry and sexual tension so thick it could be its own character, the unbridled passion simmering between Em and Sutton introduces a deeper level of intimacy and vulnerability into their previously mercurial relationship and gives them something steady to hold on to when their world starts spinning around them and danger comes knocking at their door.With characters that are complex and compelling, a narrative that’ll have you reading each chapter with baited breath, and a romance that’ll set your emotions awhirl, Shelter is an unforgettable second installment in The Getaway Series by Jay Crownover. This book will not only have you swooning and blushing one minute, then your heart racing the next. Each page will have you glued to your Kindle, eager to discover what happens next. And I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.*complimentary copy provided by author for an honest review

Ce qui implique aussi que même si ce second tome se lit très bien tout seul, il est préférable d’avoir lu le précédent pour bien comprendre ce qui s’est joué.http://romance-bluemoon.com/2018/01/s...

    Jay Crownover is a master of her craft. I have read and loved everything she has written. She is one of my favorite authors and Shelter is another example as to why.After reading Retreat we can imagine what might be in store for these characters. A story of pain, of healing, and perhaps of forgiveness. Fast paced and full of action, mystery, tender moments, and some seriously steamy scenes.

The way in which she tells the story, the words she uses, the imagery she provokes, and the feelings she unleashes, are what has me completely lost within the pages and coming back for more.

Once i got used to it i enjoyed it better than the fisrt one. It felt also a little more twisted and somber but i'm glad there wasn't too much drama between them.Overall i had a good time and i was really into it.I'm curious about Lane and Brynn's story but also a bit affraid ...

After narrowly escaping death side by side in the woods, both Sutton and Emrys have to face their true fears and find shelter in one another.Sutton believes that he failed when it came to saving Emrys from the men who threatened her life. He drowns himself in drinks and pain and seems unable to break from the nightmares of his own almost-death and the haunting images of Emrys with a knife at her throat. But he also regrets pushing her away when she seemed to need him in a way he only dreamed of. Now she's back in town and as the rabbit hole threatens to pull him in deeper, the only thing keeping him afloat is Emrys and their chance at a future.Emrys feels an incredible amount of guilt after almost costing Sutton his life. She struggles day-to-day with the 'what ifs' and cant help but feel responsible for the pain both of them went through. After coming to terms with her own pain, she decides to set out after Sutton for more than forgiveness. But as the women in Sutton's life begin to disappear and turn up dead, Em has to wonder if her own brush with danger had anything to do with Sutton's past.Crownover manages to easily craft a story of two heartbroken individuals that are not at a loss for love but are at risk of losing themselves. Both Sutton and Emrys seem to suffer from a version of survivor's guilt at not being able to save the other from pain. Mixed with their insatiable hunger for one another and the two of them are explosively sexy and powerful. Love may conquer all but trust helps win every battle. And with a murder mystery on the way, there's more to fight then their attraction and fate. Shelter is an auto 5 star read to close out the year!
