Truth. Pain. Freedom.
An awakening like no other.
When life is determined to buck you off, dig in and ride hard.
The bull. The most dangerous lies are the ones we tell ourselves. To survive, I have to face the truth. Easier said than done when it’s not all black and white. There’s the in-between, and this murky void is where I always tend to land.
The horns. Lies don’t always hurt. My lies protected me, but when they are exposed and I can no longer outrun the many shades of truth, I’ll be in for one hell of a reckoning.
The ride. From the outside, my life looks like one big adventure after another. But, there is no freedom in anarchy, and that’s the way I’ve lived my life. Until now. Until Ransom.
Denver Dempsey was a slut for oblivion. Now, she’s a slut for love. And it’s that kind of thinking that got her in trouble in the first place. Ransom awakens Denver in ways she never imagined, but when her true feelings send her reeling, will they catapult her into the arms of Greer—her ex best-friend-with-benefits? After never loving anyone, herself included, she now loves two. One kept her alive. One teaches her how to live. If they didn’t both love her … if hearts weren’t bound to be broken, it would be the stuff dreams are made of.
Will Denver remain locked up in the bullpen, or is she strong enough to open the chute and be freed?

Since the dawn of time, Lynetta Halat has lived to read and has written innumerable stories and plays. A lover of good books, bad boys, and kickass tunes, she'd always dreamt of penning books that people could connect with and remember. She also has a secret penchant for wringing the emotions out of unsuspecting readers, and she collects reader's tears in much the same way that wine connoisseurs collect their favorite vintage.
Her first novel, Every Rose, was the perfect catalyst to launch her into the world of publishing, effectively burrowing her way into the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world. Everything I've Never Had was her follow-up adult romance novel. Now, she has penned Used, a New Adult Romance that she hopes sinks its teeth into you and doesn't let go.
Her love of the English language prompted her to pursue a Master's degree in English from Old Dominion University in Virginia, where she also minored in snark and interpretive dance. She lives somewhere along the Mississippi Gulf Coast with her adorable husband, two amazing sons, and two loveable dogs. When she's not writing riveting stories, she likes to focus on her macramé art and her scouring of eBay, where she buys locks of hair from her favorite rock stars, most especially Bret Michaels and Dave Grohl.
I just cannot say enough good things about this book. It picks up with where Used left off. There was a whole lot of talking going on in this book, and that was a good thing. There were a lot of other things going on too. Ransom and Denver learned to communicate the problems that they had, open and honestly. They worked through those problems together. Not pushing, not pulling, but supporting each other in every way. Denver had a lot of things that she had to come to terms with and she had to fix her relationship with Greer. They both realize that it will never be what it once was, and that what is was before was toxic and wrong. Ransom takes Denver to meet his Mom, and the rest of his family and while she's there, Denver realizes what she has missed throughout the years. All the while Denver and Ransom are getting closer and closer. He teaches her about what he likes and what he knows she'll like as well. So you could have knocked me over with a feather when Ransom made his statement to Denver towards the end of the book. Literally. But that just made me like him even more. He was still so patient with Denver, realizing what she needed and willing to give her the time to get there. I also loved that Denver recognized that she needed to be in a good place for herself before things with Ransom could move forward. I loved both Used and Freed, and will read anything that Lynetta writes when given the opportunity. If I could give this book more stars, I so would. It was honest, raw, emotional and fantastic. I loved it from the beginning to the end.
