Book Description

**FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY**

Starting over was never easy for anyone.

I’d heard the stories over and over.

But after the hell my ex-husband had put me through over the last year, over the last twenty years…well, I was ready to move on, repair what was left of my shattered heart and find someone to share my life with—someone who would put me first.

I deserved it. I’d done my time being in her shadow, being a cheap understudy, always second. For. All. Those. Years.

Never again.

Our move to San Diego provided a fresh start, a new place away from all the hurt and memories. Life as a single mom to three teenagers had its' challenges, but we were adjusting and my kids were doing well.

It was time to focus on my happiness, for once. I had a huge capacity to love and I wanted to share my love with a man that respected it, accepted it and gave it in return.

It was just a matter of time before he found me and showed me what true, honest love was all about.

About the Author

I’m a wife, a mom of three, a friend, an aunt, a sister, a daughter and a teacher. Now, I can add writer to my list! I’ve always wanted to write and finally found inspiration and support to do it. I live near Austin, Texas with my family and love to read and travel. Put me on a beach with a good book and the world just disappears around me. Paradise Taken was my first novel and is a highly emotional book based on true events. Its sequel (Saving Us) is due out February 2014. Loving Her was the second book I wrote after needing a little time off from Paradise Taken. It is a story close to my heart. I love that you are willing to take a chance on a new writer and promise to keep striving to put out great books! 
If you don't like my books, that's okay. Just please be gentle on my fragile ego. ;) I'd love to chat with you, so look me up on any of my social pages. Happy Reading. :) CM Hutton cm.hutton@yahoo.com

3.0 out of 5 stars Honest review July 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first part of this book was great. I loved Claire - she was a great h. Then entered Derek. The beginning of their romance was sweet, heartwarming. Somewhere along the way I ended up with two people who were so wishy washy. The back and forth drove me nuts. Derek was over the top possessive and he wasn't even sure of his feelings for Claire - to me he was just a jerk.

The ending of the book - with Derek's family - so unrealistic. Yeah, yeah, I know - it's a story but still.

I hate to say this but I would give this 2.5 stars - I really wanted to love it but just can't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story! June 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I know this is a stand alone, Paradise Taken and Saving Us don't have to be read to love Honest Love but I'm so glad that I read those two first! Through those two books you get a real understanding of what Claire has gone through, what baggage she carries with her on her fresh start and just how much she deserves to BE FIRST!
Claire hasn't ever been put first in her adult life and now that she's been pushed out into the world on her own as a single mom, she's going to do whatever it takes to make sure she never settles again.
Enter Derek London...
He has his own baggage and hang ups on his life not turning out how he planned. When they meet, he's an ass, a rude A Hole to Claire. She doesn't have time for his crap and doesn't put up with it.
They each hear each others stories from a friend and that's what makes them more intrigued with the other. They each feel the need to protect their new friend from something they went through.
There is just one dream that Derek has that holds everything in the balance and it's a big one. A deal breaker for Claire, even if it means pain for herself, she's willing to walk away. No matter what, she will not be second. Not to a person. Not to a dream. Nothing. She deserves to be someones all and she knows it.

Best swoon parts for me...

**Derek: About time. I thought you might've missed it. Merry Christmas Claire.

**Creeper (romantical term of endearment)

**When I walked out of the bathroom, Derek groaned at my outfit. "Really? That is what you sleep in?"
"Usually, although, since he left, sometimes I sleep in nothing." I whispered the last part.
Derek ran a hand down his face. "Damn woman, how am I supposed to be on my best behavior when you look like that?"

**"Love and forgiveness are the two hardest things to accept and to give."

Review:
I am a huge fan of C.M. Hutton. Her previous two novels Paradise Taken and Saving Us were absolutely fabulous! They are based on a true story of an all-consuming love that tore two families apart. Honest Love is a spinoff of these novels focused on Claire, the ex-wife of the “hero” in the Paradise Taken series. Those two novels DO NOT have to be read to enjoy this one. However, I loved them so I would encourage you check them out anyway!

I knew I loved Claire even before I picked up the first page because she showed such strength after being betrayed so horribly by her husband of twenty years in Saving Us. This one starts out about a year after Saving Us leaves off, showing Claire trying to rebuild her life. She doesn’t need to work because her ex-husband guiltily provided a hefty settlement on her before he left but she chooses to so she can keep herself busy. She is very much still hurting over her divorce.

Claire works as a physical therapist helping people of all ages get over their injuries. Her kids left to spend the holidays with her ex so for the first time in forever she is completely alone. Deciding to keep busy so she doesn’t break down she picks up a hefty caseload, which includes Derek Landon. HOLY HOTNESS is he swoon worthy. Derek is an ex pro football player turned firefighter, with a hot bod, and a dirty mouth–YUMMY ;-)

So Derek re-injured his leg at work and wants to get back to work ASAP.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect ending June 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Derek London the younger sexier alpha male and perfect F@*# you Jake. I know that was not Claire's intentions nor thoughts but it made me happy all the same. The anticipation I felt waiting for Jake to met Derek had me on edge but I was far more satisfied by Jakes reaction to Claire moving on. I really enjoyed seeing a new side of Rob, hopefully he gets a chance to tell his story. Honest Love is my favorite book in Paradise Taken series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tanya-the book obsessed momma's review August 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
OMG! It's no lie that I wanted Claire to get her own story after the first 2 books! I'm amazed by the storyline and the the man CM created just for her! ;) <3

This book is seriously sexy, amazing, intense, filled with jealousies, insecurities and is fabulous!

Claire moves away with her children to try to move on from the pain and hurt they all endured due to Jake and Kaye.
She's happy with her new job until she meets a new client...

Derek has been hurt physically and mentally. He needs PT and when the new girl helps him... he's snippy, rude and interested.

These 2 together are amazing!!! Both have and their hearts broken but when a friendship blooms... they help one another.

Claire and Derek are sexy, sassy and electric!

You will fall in love with Derek! He's swoon worthy, sexy, possessive, and oh so delicious!! He's go it bad for Claire. Yes, you may get a bit frustrated with him a time or two but he's so amazing for Claire!!!

Claire oh my... You will feel for her and get why she's so smitten with Derek! She becomes sexy and sassy with Derek and I loved it!!

This book is everything you hoped Claire could get and then some!!!!
The ending is fabulous and the bonus.....OMG!! I was busting up laughing! Hilarious!!

If you have read the first two books you don't want to miss this installment of Claire's HEA! It's sexy and steamy! You don't want to miss the sexy Derek and see why Claire is so smitten with him.

5 sexy robe stars from me! <3 muahahah :)
