    Awesome

    Oh I need a Nakos in my life!! Kind, gentle, loving, sexy Nakos...sigh. What a fantastic character and Amy is a great match for him. In this wonderfully done story we see Amy come back to life after getting herself out of a bad marriage and Nakos finally realize what real love is when he falls head over heels for Amy. It takes them both a while to come to terms with what they mean to each other but what a wonderful journey it is! I highly recommend this book to everyone!

    The healing power of love

    Benediction is the first book I have read by this author, and I wasn't disappointed. Whilst dealing with some very painful issues, hope and the healing power of love are portrayed as Nakos literally picks up the pieces of Amy's life when he discovers her broken and her life in disarray. Nakos and Amy grew up together and have been close friends since childhood, but it takes a violent attack on her to bring out the primal protective instincts buried deeply in Nakos. The story describes Amy's road to recovery but also brings out the basic truths of nature versus nurture and the influence that childhood has over the way in which we live our lives. I loved the characters that live on Cattenach Ranch and the sense of family that they bring. Nakos was prepared to gently coax Amy into a relationship with him, gently caring and nurturing her. When Amy is once again faced with the past, she finds she has more than one champion and the road to recovery is finally achievable. This book is well written and easy to read, with a good flow of language. It is a stand-alone novel despite being part of a series and comes to a charming conclusion. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.

    WOW!

    Benediction floored me completely with the avalanche of profound emotions and characters whose stories will stay with me, will echo in my heart and mind, for a long while. I know as a fact that whatever I say about this book will not do justice to it, but I will give it my best try to communicate why I loved every single word of it. Why I went back several times while reading the book because I wanted to savor the words, the moments, the scenes, and stay in that glow for a little longer. Redemption, the book one in the series gave a solid foundation for Benediction. Even though both books can be read as stand alone novels, I wouldn't. First, both are absolutely remarkable, and Redemption starts the back story to Benediction that gives you a different point of view to the events. Nakos Hunt, the considerate, kind, protective man is a hero like no one else. I love him, his honesty, his insights, his openness with Amy was amazing. His patience, his fortitude, his humbleness when facing the new stage in the relationship with Amy, his best friend, was beautiful and admirable. Amy Woods has never felt like she was good enough, that she mattered, that she was loved. Her parents constant belittling of her, constantly tearing her apart, the mental and physical abuse she had suffered through her life, it all had left her hollow, hiding behind smart-alecky comments and big smiles. She had such kindness, caring spirit, talent, and beauty in her, yet the castigation made her believe the hateful words and critique she had heard all her life. Love is a powerful force and can start the healing process from the deepest, most painful wounds in our bodies, minds, and souls. The story of Nakos and Amy took me for an emotional ride like no other. There were laughs, smiles, and sighs. And there were tears, so many tears, of pain, sorrow, but also for the happiness and tenderness. The ache in my heart for Amy, the agony of some of the events, the grief of missed chances because of the abuse and its consequences, it all made such an impact, the scenes were so realistic, raw, sobering. And then there was the love. Not only between Nakos and Amy, the love and connection that burned in their souls, but also the love of friends, and the support and guidance they provided that helped them find their way to each other after the mending process from the past had started. It is amazing how each emotion, on the whole scale of feelings, can be lived through the words and images on your mind so vividly, so sharply, and strongly. I was right there with the characters, in each scene, living them through, learning to love, learning to move on, learning to forgive and learn to let go, opening my mind to all the possibilities that future can hold right along with Amy and Nakos. Benediction and Redemption are both on the very short list of 'My 2017 favorites' - maybe I should have started with that one. Absolutely loved it, and can not recommend highly enough! ~ Five Spoons!

    Loved Benediction

    Kelly Moran has once again knocked it out of the park with this amazing love story. I will be honest and say I wasn't all that sure I like Nakos in Redemption which was the first book in the Cattenach Ranch series, but he redeemed himself by the end of that book. I absolutely Nakos and Amy together. Amy went through some horrible things as a child and her friendship with Nakos and Olivia was what held her together. As an adult her luck wasn't much better until she is forced to stay with Nakos at his house to give Olivia and her new husband some space. I loved this story. I went from laughter to tears and from from being mad about what was happening to cheering Nakos and Nate on when the past comes to visit the ranch. Five stars doesn't cover how amazing the characters and story are in this book.

    Didn't want it to end!

    Amy will absolutely break your heart, and Nakos will put it back together again! Anyone who has been through any kind of personal pain or heartache can relate to Amy and her doubts, but the level to which she believes she is unworthy of love or anything positive in her life is so sad. The way that Nakos loves her enough to be willing to do whatever it takes, no matter what it takes, is just amazing. I love how the writer gets the range of emotions across so effectively - a powerful and touching story. I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.
