Publisher's Summary

Love struck me at the early age of five. The boy turned into a man, and I fell even deeper. Guy Webb had no idea my fragile heart belonged to him for so many years. He was too busy being my brother’s best friend and a star on the football field. He was my daydream and consumed every single thought, but he was always one step from my reach.

Beartooth Ranch was our home. The rich ranch land raised us, fostered our laughs and losses, and even gained a new family member when Guy moved in for his sophomore year of high school. 

I hid my love for years. But now he’s back. Guy Webb returned a broken soldier after serving his country all over the atlas. And now it’s my job to help him heal.

My family lost everything with his return, and I can only hope I survive it.

Heartbreakingly sweet

Warning: this book will make you ugly cry! It is so beautiful and so touching but has parts that will bring you to your knees. Being able to see the main couple and their family go full circle was absolutely amazing!

The narration was fantastic! The way Lacy brought out all of the emotions in her voice was amazing! I'm fairly certain hearing the crying in her voice made me cry!

Warm country romance

This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I really loved the writers style. The story is about family, loss and true love that never dies and carries on in each generation. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but if you like stories that really touch your emotions, you will love this audiobook. Narration was well done.

Weight of The World

Molly and Guy are a story for the ages. Once upon a time there was a girl that followed her rough and tumble brother and his sweet and charming friend anywhere and everywhere. She was a pest to her brother as all tagalong little sisters are, but Guy always seemed to make her feel like like his special little Hop. As they grew the boys obvious changed into cocky swaggering so and sos but Guy always seemed to have a special place for his girl Hop no matter what life was throwing at them. When they left for the service she was understandably distraught but proud of them, but by now she had long since fallen for the sweet, kind, and handsome Guy. It’s just a shame he had always seen her as his little sidekick. Until it becomes evident that this isn’t the case. Guy has always had fires that burned deep for Ms Molly, but didn’t want to risk losing his family and her to pursue them. When they give in to what’s been a long time coming it can only be seen as destiny fulfilled by most and happiness is assure until fate plays an an cruel hand on them. As they learn to live in the aftermath, will they find a way to love and heal together?

Narration- Jeremey and Lacy as per usual do a sensational job bringing these characters to life. You will feel sucked into the story with their delivery of all the feels.

Molly and Guy!

Molly has loved her brother’s best friend Guy since she was a child and although her brother treated her as an irritating little sister Guy always stood up for her and included her in what they were doing. As a teenager she watched him date other girls and it broke her heart, but he finally noticed her and they made plans for their future together after he and her brother returned from the war.

When tragedy strikes Molly’s entire family is devastated but the heartbreak deepens when Guy returns home physically injured but the emotional injuries that were so much worse. This is an emotional story about loss, healing and learning to live again. These two are soulmates and although their journey was far from easy it is beautiful and won’t leave you untouched.

I thought the narrators did a great job with this story. They made you feel like you were experiencing it with the characters and you could feel the emotions that they felt. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the narrator.

3.5 Stars

The story and plot line was good. The narration was okay; it took me a minute to get use to the female narrator. But this book and narration was both just “meh.” There was a part that was spectacular, so if the author can find that muse again...it would be 5 stars. This book had so much potential. I’m not sure where this falls in the authors releases, but I’d be tempted to look at future releases, with honed writing skills.

A true love story

This book pulled me in and not only broke my heart several times but also renewed my belief in true love and happily ever after.

Lacy Laurel did a great job of telling this story and Jeremy York was great as Guy. There is difficult subjects to deal with and they narrated them well. There are a few timing issues to the story at times but overall it’s a great book.

I received a code from Audiobook Obsession to listen and give my honest opinion. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Excellent book.

I love the fact that it’s a combination of a military man that needs to heal both mentally and physically. Mixed with a horse ranch filled with cowboys and cowgirls. This is well written and I did enjoy the ending of the book. Can’t wait to read more from this author and exploring this narrators as I feel that they brought the emotions out well

Great love story

Royal Atlas was a story of great love. Molly and Guy were such lovely characters and their love was for life. There were some heartwrenching moments and also some of great joy. I really liked the story. Shed some tears too.

Out of the two narrators I liked Jeremy York better. His voice, pacing and enunciation was perfect. Unfortunately I couldn't say the same for Lacy Laurel. Her enunciation wasn't so clear, she clipped her words a lot. There also was some sibilance in her speach I particularly dont't like, but this is rather a personal preference and probably isn't something too bothersome to other listeners. Aside from that both narrators did a good job with how they used different voices for the different characters. I enjoyed their performance.

Royal Love Book One

Royal Love Book One.

This story is told as a family story for a girl's report.

Molly Marshall has lived on her family's horse farm all of her life, and she has been in love with Guy Webb for just as long. As the best friend of Molly's brother, Amos, Guy hasn't been able to tell her that he feels the same, until he comes back for her high school graduation. The next time he comes back is so steeped in pain, the two cannot truly connect. To heal, Molly's grandfather assigns Guy to the stables to help Molly train the horses. Working with Molly's new horse, Royal Atlas, allows Guy to heal.

If you're looking for a story about generations of love and heartbreak, this is the book for you! However, have a box or two of tissues, because this book will rip your heart out and stomp on it several times right up until the end.

This is a beautiful whole love of your life story

I completely and utterly loved this story! I loved the way it was written following the whole of Molly and Guy's lives and their blossoming love story. It was funny and sad and heartwarming and everything you want in a romance story. I liked the way the beginning was mostly told from Molly's POV and then you get some of Guy's POV later in the story, the narrators added extra to this way of telling a story and Lacy was perfect as Molly I could see her through listening to her voice. I can't recommend this audiobook enough and am now looking to read the other books in this series as the characters were all so lovable.

Really Enjoyable

Wow, what can I say about this book? This was such a big hit for me. The storyline kept me on the edge of my seat and I had no idea what was going to happen next. This was one of the best reads I have encountered in the last few months. The writing was exceptional and I adored the world building.

The voices were clear and concise and only helped to boost what an entertaining read this was. Fantastic work
