REVIEW~ KYLAND by Mia Sheridan

Dirt poor. Hillbilly. Backwoods hick. Mountain folk.

Tenleigh Falyn struggles each day to survive in a small, poverty-stricken, coal mining town where she lives with her sister and mentally ill mother. Her dream of winning the college scholarship given to one student by the local coal company and escaping the harshness of her life, keeps her going.

Kyland Barrett lives in the hills, too, and has worked tirelessly—through near starvation, through deep loneliness, against all odds—to win the Tyton Coal Scholarship and leave the town that is full of so much pain.

They're both determined not to form any attachments, but one moment changes everything. What happens when only one person gets to win? When only one person gets to leave? And what happens to the one left behind?

Kyland is a story of desperation and hope, loss and sacrifice, pain and forgiveness, but ultimately, a story of deep and unending love.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY TAURUS. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18

Stars: 5 Stars!!!!
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

  Sometimes my friends would ask ”How are you not tired with reading the same love story?” or “How many different ways can you make someone fall in love and read about it?”. I think from now on every time I have to answer that question, I am simply going to say 'Mia Sheridan'. Every story I've read from Mia has be absolutely wonderful and Kyland is no exception.

   Mia Sheridan always makes you think about the life you are living.  I love this about her work, I love that I don't always get a boy meets girl but a message behind the romance she writes.

   Can I just say from the first line of Kyland I couldn't help but feel it in my heart.  Mia has a great way of pulling you into her stories and the stories being so good that you can't put your devices down until you have read the last page.

“The first time I really noticed Kyland Barrett, he was swiping someone's discarded breakfast off a cafeteria table”
Kyland was told from both Tenleigh's and Kyland's Point of View, which I really enjoyed. I thought the story flowed well an kept me interested.
About the Story:
In a poor mining community both Kyland and Tenleigh are struggling to make ends meet. Both live separate lives but admired each other from afar. Circumstances both them together and each trying to deny the attraction between them.  The conditions they were living in made my heart dropped. Despite the lack of material things they enjoyed the simple things that many take for granted. They wanted to leave their hometown and are both competing for the one way out.

 I would definitely  recommend this book to anyone. The story is  a different kind of love story but gives you everything you love about a romance. There is first love, heartbreaks and the overall struggle both characters go through to get to a normal like.
Loved it!!!
