Title: Sweet Light
Author: Alexia Halliwell
The Hazelwood Series
Sportochick's Musings gives 5 STARS on this brilliantly written debut novel
That was one word that summed up Lira Matthews in Kane’s honest-to-god opinion. Actually, calling her hostile was putting it lightly.
Belligerent. Vicious. Scathing. All wonderful words that could be used to describe Lira.
Never in his entire life had he met a woman like her. From the very moment she stepped into the small town of Hazelwood she intrigued him. It could have been her guarded, distrusting eyes or her sweet softness hidden underneath her tough façade — all Kane knew was he wanted her.
To Lira, a Dean’s list medical student, Kane was just another hot mechanic. Sure, he had corded arms that made you gulp in desire and a kindness to him that made your insides melt, but they were from two different worlds. Two worlds that were never meant to meet — they both knew that.
That was until Lira’s past catches up with her and she must decide whether she can face her fears or let it consume her whole.

5 STARS on this brilliantly written debut novel by author Alexia Halliwell. The plot is well thought out and executed with a hint for the future book to this series. Though there are lots of characters being introduced she keeps the reader unconfused with clear character descriptions and smooth flowing transitions between scenes.
Lira's life is something else and the reader is drawn to her with compassion and the desire to cheer her to succeed with her life. I love that her character was shown in a manner that didn't make her a weak victim but showed her as a strong women working at creating a new life that she will love.
Kane is the perfect male character to compliment Lira. He is strong, caring and understanding in a rough kind of way. He has a group of friends from childhood that he is dedicated to that play a big part of this book. I think all of them deserve a book and I look forward to reading more of this series.
An ARC was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

When she isn’t bar-hopping down the streets of Sydney (for research purposes of course) or cuddling her gorgeous pup, she’s probably snuggled in bed with a cup of tea, spinning elaborate tales about all the characters screaming at her in her head.
