    3. “We’re stained by each other and our combined past. Both of us seek the ink of our future, no doubt wondering what sorts of stories will unfold after tonight” When I received and ARC by the author, I was so curious and when it got banned by , I felt like a total badass for reading it.Now, at first I felt the story had such a slow pace. I had a hard time keeping my attention to it since I like it more when stories get to the point fast #impatient but about 45% in, I finally got into the sto [...]

    6. Beautiful on every levelEverything about this book had me hook, line and sinker. I could feel the world of Hawke and Sloane, not just because of the thick and utterly beautiful emotion but because of the magic language A Wilding Wells used to paint a vivid world I desperately want in on. Hawke was the delicious and full hearted man I dreamt of since I knew how to dream of boys. Sloane was beautiful, particularly broken, and will forever remind me to forgive, particularly myself. This book has ma [...]

    7. I received this ARC for an honest review. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. It was a hands down 5+++ stars for me.I love the authors writing style and how she was able to make everything relatable and engaging.

I was completely sucked into their world.I was swooning all over the place with this story husband even told me if he heard me sigh out loud one more time he was g [...]

    8. *ARC PROVIDED FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*SPEECHLESS. I think I lose sense of everything surrounding me while reading A. Wilding Wells's books. I get sucked right in. I get invested in the characters and I turn into a puppy following them everywhere waiting for them to unravel and uncover their deepest darkest secrets. And believe me , they always have that one hell of a secret that turns tables. This book was nothing less than frustrating. Yes, it frustrated me and made me angry. Thats why I loved it. [...]

    9. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC for this beautiful book from the Author and I way beyond excited becuse this was my first ARC ever and also the first book by A. Wilding Wells. Thank you so much for trusting and sharing your work with me. I don't think my words will do the justice to explain how this book made me feel. From the beginning I was pulled in and  captivated.  With most books it takes some time for the story to develope and make me feel connected to the characters within it. [...]

    11. 4.5 Stars!My feelings were trampled on…just when I thought this would be an easy breezy book…Sloan Mcqueen, you are one exquisite remarkable soul! A survivor with undeniable courage. Yes, Hawke Slater was easily stealing the show because of his free spirited vibe and charming personality, but you my darlin’ swallowed me whole, crushed my heart and mended it. At first I wanted her to just shake it off and open her heart to Hawke once again (stop torturing the man), but I realized her action [...]

It didn't lack humor, the quirky banter and hot scenes that we love but when shit got real I got all the FEELS. My heart hurt for everything Hawke & Sloan's love and life went trough. But thankfully their love was s [...]

    16. **NOTICE: ARC PROVIDED IN EXCHANGE FOR HONEST REVIEW**There is a cliche that begins "There are two kinds of people in this world" I would argue that there are actually two worlds: the normal, safe, sane one most of us live in, and a shadow world. It is the shadow world which has two kinds of people: the malignant deviants (terrorists, rapists, killers, abusers, etc.), and their victims. Every victim dreams of escape, but not all do, or not right away. Those who do escape find themselves forever [...]

    17. This is my second book from this author and I really enjoyed this love story. The main characters meet as childhood friends turned lovers and are separated for 10 years due to some things that happened in their teens. This was a very emotional journey for both characters and they way they deal with old demons and uncovering a truth that could have changed their entire relationship. It's just goes to show how true love can conquer all. This author has such a unique writing style and way of storyt [...]

What a wonderfully strong woman to rise above and find her happiness. An amazing book from start to finish, I highly recommend you read this the first chance you get!P. S. s current ban is Absofuckinglutely ridiculous! Support indie a [...]

    19. **ARC provided by author for an honest review**I just finished reading the book, and to say I’m a huge jumble of emotions is the least of it. What this author can do with words, sweet baby Jesus she slays me. I love to highlight my favorite passages, or sayings that make me swoon. So to say that almost half of this book was highlighted is just a testament to A. Wilding Wells writing ability. As I’m writing this review, the book is currently being banned from due to the graphic nature, and e [...]

    20. Hawke became an unofficial part of Sloan's family since he started playing with her and her brothers when he was ten and she was seven. At first, he treated her just like her brothers, but as they grew up, feelings started to change.

    22. ** arc received in exchange for a honest review**A Field Guide to Catching Crickets is a book full of heartache, love, redemption and forgives.

    23. First off, thank you a million times over to A. Wilding Wells, for the ARC copy of this story. I couldn't wait to get my paws on this beauty! Oh my goodness, this book! What an emotional journey! I'm used to people having secrets and skeletons in the closet, but Sloane and Hawke really had to battle for a decade (or more, technically) to maintain a relationship that would have torn most couples apart. Hawke and Sloane have been together since they were tykes. That's just the way it was from the [...]

    24. 4.25 STARS!Whew! This was one of those books that you just have to keep reading and pray for the best possible outcome, knowing that the author will be faithful and give it to you. That's exactly what I did. I started and finished within 24 hours, only stopping for some much needed sleep.I won't get into details with character arcs, etc, because it's better to go into this one trusting and a bit blind to their story. Simply put, "Crickets" focuses on Hawke and Sloane - two childhood friends turn [...]

    26. A. Wilding Wells' A Field Guide To Catching Crickets is what I read for. What can I say? I was wowed and surprised and on the edge of my seat as I followed Sloane McQueen's sweet but complicated second chance romance. As Sloane pursued her own desire—a drive to confess about the traumatic experiences which have shaped her life away from her sweetheart Hawke—I found myself simultaneously desiring to understand her, and the secrets that shroud her relocation from the United States to Amsterdam [...]

Things hasn't gone quite as Sloan and Hawke bought it would go. It's obvious Sloan has been through some things and Hawke is succ [...]

    30. Hawke could be sweet, “you know, ten years is a long damn time, yet you’re still my favorite girl. Or, well, guess you’re not a girl anymore. A woman now.” He swallows hard, his throat bobbing. “Yes, you are all woman.” I loved Hawke and his personality, “softie?” he says, stealing a bite of my bacon. “That would be about the last thing you might want to call me.” He points out his well-tented shorts." I really enjoyed this book I loved Hawke.
