Book Description

Living alone in a small cottage in the woods, Michelle is hiding from a past too horrible to put into words. Without other people around, she finds she can focus better on simply surviving instead of regretting things she can’t change — like the scary scar on her face.

But everything changes after a severe storm. Michelle finds a mysterious stranger injured in the woods and knows she must open her doors to help him recuperate. When he awakens, however, he has no memory of who he is or where he came from. Michelle struggles to care for Jonathan as he copes with the growing understanding that he has no access to his past. But hope for the future dawns with each passing day they spend together.

Michelle and Jonathan face a growing attraction to each other, but when Jonathan’s past is revealed, will Michelle find herself worthy of the love of a Wharton?

NOTE: This is Book 1 of 3 of The Worthy Series.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Free is good July 15, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Overall, the story was pretty engaging. I did read it straight through, including parts 2 and 3 because I hate to leave things undone :) The first part of the story was my favorite and frankly, part three did feel a little forced and the HEA resolution was pretty fast and had pretty flat undertones. Basically "We're both kind of terrible people at this point, but eh, we still love each other and so that's a start." The other thing that I really disliked about part three was the frankly unbelievable shift in Michelle's personality. I still went with it, though, because by then I had to see how this whole thing would end.
    My biggest gripe with this book series is the use (overuse, actually) of the word "Anyways." The word would be "Anyway" not "Anyways" and every time I read it, I cringed.

    3.0 out of 5 stars WHAT after all that a cliffy? July 19, 2014
    By Lynn

    I'm a little ticked off right now.

    After taking a moment to relax I'm going to do my best to review this one with out letting my feelings get in the way. Firstly I enjoyed more than half of this book, the writing, the attention to detail in both the characters and their surroundings sucked me in from the get go. I'm enjoying the plot and the story for the most part but the closer I got to the end the more things have been bugging me a bit. One ting that I dislike in books is when someone gives up everything to be with another person. Michelle has done that, and in doing so she's completely lost herself in my opinion. Because of her insecurities she just sits around the compound with a witch of a mother in law and just takes everything. I don't want to spoil the book but even the location of a significant event wasn't her at all, you'd think or well I'd hoped for a second that she would have taken Jonathan up on his last minute run away idea, but no.

    The further I got into the book and the more Michelle lost herself I felt like things just got more and more repetitive as well until BAM the book ends... I'm not so happy about that! Will I read the next one, more than likely because I want to know how this all plays out.

    For a freebie I get it props definitely one of the better ones.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Great writing, bad female lead August 5, 2014
    By Brianna
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Okay normally I try not to go below 3 stars if I can help it, but this one I feel it's necessary. It has nothing to do with the writing itself. Honestly it was very well done. I've seen some truly horrendous writing of late so this one was a blessing on that end. The reason for the low star count is character. The main female lead is just.... awful. She's shallow, she's pathetic, she's weak, and she focuses too much on the "oh my god I must hide from everything!!" or "it'd just be better if I wasn't here!" or "how can someone so beautiful love someone so ugly!" Seriously? Get a therapist! It's like she's permanently stuck at the age of 14 or younger without the mental capacity to acknowledge that things change, life goes on, and you need to grow up! She annoyed me so much I almost threw my tablet (which would be bad). Here is this person who has survived on their own for quite a few years, been mostly self-sufficient, could make an amazingly strong female lead, and what happens? She's worse than Bella from Twilight. Yeah, I went there. There are times where you think "oh good, maybe she's growing up" but no, next sentence she's right back to square -5. Skipped over 0 and just kept going lower. The main male lead on the other hand, loses his memory but does he let that get him down? No! He doesn't understand what's going on with the "new/old" family, but he's more than willing to work to figure it out. He stumbles and falls, he makes some stupid awful mistakes, and yet he picks himself back up and keeps trying. She fails... miserably... on all points. I won't be getting the rest of the series, but hey... if this is something that interests others then by all means, enjoy the book! I didn't, but that's my personal preference.

    This had the potential to be a good story. Unfortunately it never lived up to that potential. The initial chapters were intriguing - mysterious young woman with a badly scarred face living alone in the woods,her rescue of a badly injured man , etc. It soon degenerated into series of adolescent sex scenes thinly strung together with meandering pieces of a story line that never developed into a cogent plot. Sex in a field, in the cabin, in the family compound, in a business office, in a taxi on the way to the airport, and on and on. Puh-leeze!! I found myself paging through all the heavy breathing and vulgarity to get back to the story. Frankly, the book was reminiscent of the output of a group of constipated virgins. Awful!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars a throughly enjoyable book worthy of 2 thumbs up! July 24, 2014
    By Claire

    Michelle spent five years alone in her cottage, in a place where no one would bother her. It's her choice, really, to stay there, after an accident cause her to lose her loved ones and left her face disfigured. Then one rainy night, she heard a voice. A voice of a stranger in pain. Being a good samaritan, Michelle helped the man out of the raging creek and took him home to treat his wounds and heal. But the morning after, she was surprised to learn that the man she helped out had no memory of his past, nor his name....

    I enjoyed reading this novel by Lexie Ray. I liked how she started the story with Michelle, telling us about her life in isolation. I liked the drama that surrounded the lead character. I liked her for being independent, caring and strong-willed, despite the scars in her life and on her face. Overall, this book has a great storyline that kept me interested. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Michelle & Jonathan's story and I am looking forward to the second book in the series. Two thumbs up for Lexie Ray!
