“Sol by Leslie McAdam is a gorgeous story full of poetry, sex, and love.” — USA Today Bestselling Author, Alexis Alvarez



The army taught me discipline. Order. Control. None of that matters the day I walk into her classroom. Or her bedroom. What's more important than my grade? Not failing her.

Cover Model: Taylor Lotre
Cover Designer: Michele Catalano
Creative Cover Photographer: Cory Stierley

I need to start off by saying that I loved the story behind the cover photo, you get the inside scoop on how Taylor Lotre became the cover model for Sol in "A note from the Author" at the end of reading Sol.

Trent and Degan are best of friends and have been for many years but there has been a secret Trent kept from him all of these years, the fact that he is in love with Degan's sister Danika "Dani" and would love nothing more than to make her his. With a surprising goodbye kiss that rocks the ground Trent walks on his is more determined in his resolve that Dani is the one for him.

Fast forward four years Dani is now 26, and Trent is 22, Trent has just completed his tour with the Military and has to break some devastating news to Dani only he has trouble locating the fun loving free spirit that travels the world and is off the grid. It doesn't take much to figure out what Trent needs to tell Dani and even though I knew it was coming I still found myself a sobbing mess. I cried several times throughout this story and to be honest when I finished the book I felt emotionally drained. If you know anyone that has been in or is currently in the Military you know the constant struggle it is to be strong at home and keep positive thoughts, you replay the last words you said to one another constantly in your mind. This is where I completely lost it, Dani was remembering what she had said to her brother right before he left for Boot Camp, and although they had talked several times over the years they never discussed the way things were left and that gutted me, tour my heart out and stomped all over it. Believe it or not I currently have tears falling down my face as I think about it all. 

The writing of this story was well done, it had me feeling as if I was right there with Trent and Dani experiencing everything they were. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book in the series and since there is no information currently available I am truly hoping it has to do with Dani's friend Lulu whom have been best friends since they met in college and she is also a teacher in Spain. 

About the Author 

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
