Ryker and I aren’t exactly perfect.

But I was falling for him—and falling hard.

Every kiss. Every Touch. Every embrace.

Just made me realize this wasn’t a fling. It wasn’t even a relationship.

It was so much more.

I just hoped Rex was wrong about Ryker. Because I didn’t have the heart to listen to him say those terrible three words.

Told you so.

Great Series that will have you flying through the pages. This is an author and series you don't want to miss.

I’m enjoying this cast of characters. As Rae and Ryker continue down the road towards a relationship, we also get to experience Zeke moving on with his love life as Rex reopens the bowling alley. I will say that I’m not a Ryker fan, as Rae stretches herself and opens up to Ryker, he remains totally closed off, really just all about the hook-up. Kayden shocked me in this installment, I love has she’s connected with Rex, turning an “experiment” into the perfect opportunity to get close to Rex. The question remains, will Rex realize that she loves him. This group of friends has created their own unique family. I love how they support each other yet there is all this interior drama as several hide their true feelings. Excited to see how all these interconnected story lines unravel.

Wow! This series just keeps getting better and better! It's not only funny and heartwarming it's hot and sexy and at times heartbreaking, I was crying at the end! This is a must read series! Worth more than five stars! Excellent

So this picks up right where book 1 ends so we don't miss anything of this story. Rex's and Rae's relationship is still just as acrimonious as ever, but at least they've got each others' back when needed. The grand re-opening of the bowling alley is a success, which is good for Rex. As much as I like the idea of Rae and Ryker, I don't know if they're gonna make it, he's such a pessimist. Rae is, well, like a ray of sunlight, all bright and happy-ish (she's got her issues, but don't we all?) Plus it doesn't help that Ryker pulls away once she admits her feelings for him. It's going to be interesting to see how they'll end up.

Oh boy this was an emotional read at the end. I was yelling, mad, angry, furious. Emotional. This was a good book. It kept me interested. I wanted more after last book and got it. Now I want even more. I love all the characters. I don't know who I want together and who I don't. I'm a ball of confusion. On to the next book.

Oooh this book hots up so much more than the first book, I’m sat here giggling at certain aspects of this book because hello funny as hell. Rae and Ryker, or Rae and Zeke? I’m team Rae so I don’t have to pick, or at least that’s my stance and that’s how its staying. Rex and Kayden are two people I adore, and I want to keep and let’s just say that I’m keeping them so if they disappear, don’t ask questions. This book is so much more substantial in terms of a story and in terms of drawing the reader in and I have to say I love each and every part of this book. It is a winner for me and I’m so excited to see what else Miss Todd has in store for her readers. The only issue I have with this book is the shortness of it because there just needs to be more but that seems to be the case with book three so book three is the plan when I get my hands on it! 4 stars

Rae has hope that her and Ryker will survive. As she continues to fall more in love with him every day she hopes for a normal relationship. These are still a close group of friends and more people will be introduced. Rex has something going on, but it is a hit secret he'll keep until the end of time. Kayden is becoming more of her self. Zeke has a girlfriend who is fantastic and he is still trying to get over his feeling ls foe Rae. I love this series so far and I can't wait to see what happend next. There is so much going on you can't he but want to read the whole book at one time. Rae is an amazing woman. Rex is becoming a decent guy to his flame. And I can't hold out hope for Zeke. I'm ready to dive into the next book.

OMG! The 1st book was excellent ... but I think the 2nd book is even better! The 2nd book picks up where the 1st book ends. Rae and Ryker continue their hot as sin relationship. I know a lot of people are wanting Rae to end up with Zeke ... but I believe that there is something in Ryker's past that makes him so secretive and I'm cheering for him and Rae. That's all I can say on them without spoiling it for others. Then there is Rex and Kayden ... I'm glad we got more of their story. In this book Rex doesn't seem so much as an idiot and he comes across as more caring and sweet. Then there is Zeke and Rochelle ... what's up with that! Zeke sure seemed to move on from Rae pretty quickly ... or so he wants us to believe. Anyway ... now I can't wait for book 3. This is a series not to be missed! Ms Todd sure knows how to put you right in the story, as you feel their laughter, pain and everything in between. The author graciously provided an ARC copy in exchange for a honest review.

I am in love with E.L. Todds new series. I love how all the characters are with each other. So caring and so relatable. Rae is so strong and loving I can't wait to see what's in store for her in the next book, hopefully Zeke. I'm not sure how I feel about Ryker, I'm hoping to learn more of why he's like this in the next book but, I'm team Zeke all the way!!!! My favorite person in this entire book is Rex!!! He's so dumb I love him!!! He's hysterical, I mean who gets stuck in beads!!! I enjoyed seeing his progression with Kayden since it was beyond obvious in the first book how she felt. Can't wait to start book 3!! I voluntarily reviewed a ARC of this book

I am in love with this series! This is book 2 of the Ray series. The characters are so down to earth and real. Once again I devoured this book in one sitting. I could not stop reading. Rae is struggling with her feelings for Ryker. Their relationship is all over the place. Rex's bowling alley is finally thriving and his financial hardship is finally improving. Rex and Kayden's friendship has taken an unexpected turn. Zeke has finally gotten over Rae and is in a relationship with someone outside their circle. There is never a dull moment with this circle of friends. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. By: C Glace

"Ray of Hope" This book shows the author gets better and better as the story goes. The first book got you interested in the characters like Rae, Rex, and Ryker, but with the second book you are all wrapped up in them and their friends (Zeke, Jesse, and Kayden) lives. And don't forget Safari. This book was so hot and steamy nit just for Rae and Ryker, but now Rextoo. It also has you really intrigued as to what's really going on in Ryker's mind and family history. The reader lives through the fun, the love, and the heartbeak. The book leaves us wanting more and looking forward to book #3 to see what happens with the characters, cant wait.

I feel in love with this book and couldn't put it down. I enjoy all the changes in this book. I love how it shows what true friends do for each other. I wish the ending was however it keeps you hooked waiting to find out what happened next. I can't wait to read the next book.

Ray of Hope picks up where Ray of Light left off. Rae and Ryker are still seeing each other and after almost three months together, things seem to be getting more serious. Is this perfect relationship as perfect as it seems? Rex's POV in this book were some of my favorite parts. I loved seeing how amazing of a big brother and friend he is. Ray of Light made him seem like a slacker but Ray of Hope shows how willing he is step up for everyone he cares about. I love this group of friends and how tight they are. I can't wait to read Ray of Love to see what happens next for all of them! *This is my voluntary review of an Advanced Reader Copy*

The second book in the series, Ray of Hope, answers so may questions that I had. Love, heartbreak, betrayal... You go through it all. The characters are evolving and I can sense the changes. I am anticipating where each characters story is going to go and the more I read the more invested I become in their decisions. I love the story so far and cannot wait to see where Ray of Love brings each of them.

As I’ve said, can a girl change her mind? hahaha. Guess I didn’t see that one coming. Should have trusted Rex instincts :-) But can you blame a girl for rooting for Ryker, and his alpha-male sexiness and charm? I still believe that Ryker, despite all his faults and flaws, is a good guy. A good antagonist. He’s just not the one for Rae. It’s true, when you can’t be with him in your natural state (bare-face), something is not right. Rex and Kayden…wow, jus wow. Thanks for that love team :-) I really like Rex. He reminds me of Scarlett and Mike. He’s insightful and goofy. I like him with Kayden. Their scenes are…whooooo…..hot! I can’t wait to see what happens next for them. Will he realize that there’s more to them than just physical? or not? We’ll just have to wait and see. I have to admit I keep myself from skipping chapters so that I can read those that are “Rex” narrated hahaha….more rex-kayden please???? The dynamics of their group is something to really look forward to. It’s going to be an amazing journey with them. This book is a MUST READ. I say it again….a MUST READ.
