REVIEW: Heaven on Earth by Jayne Rylon & Mari Carr


Austin Compton has struggled to live up to the Compass legacy his entire life, afraid of disappointing his overachieving family. After dropping out of college, he convinced his parents to buy a big rig and let him contribute to the Compass Ranch in his own way.

On the open road he discovers a happy medium between the freedom he craves and the obligation that comes along with the Compton name. When he picks up some unexpected cargo in the form of a gorgeous if battered stowaway, he’s in trouble. The same reckless urges that convinced him to abandon his education are telling him to keep Hayden close and safe, maybe even teach her how to love again after the disastrous relationship she’s fleeing.

When troubled times fall on Compass Ranch, Hayden will do anything to repay the kindness Austin and his family showed her. It’s time to support Austin like he’s done for her, if her past doesn’t catch up with her at exactly the wrong moment.

I'm a fan of Jayne Rylon's to begin with and have actually read the first two Compass Brothers books, so I had some idea going in of what to expect. I was not disappointed! It's all in the family, so Austin's parents are from the first book I read a long time ago which was awesome. This one stands alone well, but it's extremely obvious that there are more stories, so you still feel like you're coming in mid series even though you technically aren't.

Austin is so compassionate and vulnerable while still being giving off the alpha male vibe, which is a very enticing combination. Hayden is a strong woman who does what she has to in order to survive and thrive. She embarks on a journey to find herself and discovers so much more. Their story gets you invested right from the start and keeps a hold of you until the very last page.

Bottom Line:

Heaven on Earth is an utterly enthralling read full of grit and heart. I'm absolutely going to read the rest of the Compass family books and eagerly await the next book in this series!
