Evolve Series by S.E. Hall Box Set

Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her since Evan, her best friend, has coveted her since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.

Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an animal all his own.

A story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.

N/A Coming of Age- MATURE audiences.

Evan Allen is a handsome, athletic, southern gentleman who now attends Georgia Southern University for no good reason.

After what he expected to be the romantic gesture of the century, Evan is looking at no friends, a year of ineligibility on the football team, and no girl.

He's starting over alone and doesn't know quite how to proceed. Certain members of The Crew refuse to let him face things by himself, taking him under their wing, and it doesn't take the ladies long to notice him, either.

Sometimes life doesn't go as you had planned. Sometimes it goes better.

Embrace it.

Embrace, the second book in the Evolve Series by S.E. Hall, follows the characters from her debut New Adult romance, Emerge.

Jane's Review:
Embrace picks up where Emerge left off.  Evan must figure out how to more forward without Laney as 'his girl'.  New friendships are made, hurt feelings are mended, and new love blossoms throughout this story. There are so many moments in this book I loved, when Laney and Whitley solidify their friendship, when Evan is included in his first 'group text' by the crew, and when Evan gets his palm read by the crazy cat girl are just a few of them.  There are some somber moments that show these friends have each other's backs and they would do anything for each other.  I'm looking forward to experiencing more of this group of friends in the next book. 4.5 out of 5!!

Things heat up, and not just the Georgia summertime, when Dane and Laney go head to head over plans for her new duplex. But Laney's got his number, and knows just how to coerce her bossy, domineering man. Spend the summer with the gang and find out...just how many is a crowd?

The members of the Evolve Crew are getting older; so is the content. Mature audiences recommended.

Jane's Review

I was so excited to read this novella from the Evolve Series.  This book picks up where Embrace left off.  My favorite book boyfriend, Dane, bought a duplex for Laney (Tate and Bennett live in the other unit) so she didn't have to  remain in the dorm when school starts back up, his reasons are selfish but who's complaining!   Dane is still madly in love with Laney and he plans to make lifestyle changes to be closer to her.  There is no shortage of erotic romantic moments in this story.  Laney and Dane do not  disappoint when it  comes to the bedroom, living room, and even the kitchen!  The crew is around and make appearances throughout as well.

I hope the next novel is available soon so I can find out what is going on with Sawyer and see if my book boyfriend Dane makes any big moves. 5 out of 5!
