    Geeez why did I read this when a hated the first one? im literally mad at myself for buying this and wasting my time. i wanted to just give up after chap 2 but i always have to finish a book thinking it has to get better. for starters I'm pretty sure this one was even worse than the first one. Charleys plan to get back at Dylan makes absolutely no sense at all and her friends going along with it was even worse. it was like the author was trying for another love triangle and used this get even idea. how about we use a plot where she has friends that do the right thing and tell the police or her parents to get a rapist off the streets rather than this ass backwards date him plan. Charley is a freaking idiot and her dialogue is juvenile and annoying. shes supposed to be in college so tell me why she still has a 11:00 curfew? do not waste your time and money on this series. if I could rate this a zero I would!

    I don't even know where to start. First off you need to read No Turning Back before you read this book or review. I wanted to throw my kindle at the wall at the end of No Turning back, however this ending isn't as left open. The ending does make you say THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN!!! You definitely are left wanting and need to know what is going to happen next. Will Charley and Cash find their happily ever after? Will Dylan finally get what he deserves?This book is about Charley finding herself and taking life into her own hands. She is going home for winter break and wanting to rid her life of Dylan. She comes up with a plan to lead Dylan on and make him pay for what he did to her. Only problem is she may hurt and lose Cash in the process. Speaking of Cash seriously do guys like him exist. You fall even more in love with him. I'm definitely #TeamCashMoney.Charley has a great support system in her family and friends. I already loved the Kluft girls in the first book but they are even better in this book. They are there for each and would do anything for one of their girls. We also get more of Tessa and Piper. As log as you have the right people behind you, you can face you fears head on and that's just what Charley does. Will she succeed or will her plan backfire and cost her what she really wants.This series is one where you can't stop reading and need to know what is going to happen next. The reader goes through a range of emotions and is on the edge of their seats. You connect with Charley and fall in love with her. You want her to find her happily ever after. I can't wait for the conclusion in Loving Charley.

    First... if you haven't read No Turning Back yet please stop reading right now.... I don't want anyone to have the first novel spoiled for them.... go read the first one and then come back and read Finding Charley!!! This story picks up where No Turning Back left off. Charley is heartbroken because she feels betrayed by a friend, Joe, who was helping Dylan all along. Why would Joe betray Charley though... of course Charley wants to know that and so do we. The whole situation just doesn't make sense. Maybe there is more to the story than we all realize?Thankfully though, Charley has the Kluft girl on her side to help pull her through and keep her whole! I love the bond that these girls have built!! They have such a strong friendship that is like a sisterhood! It reminds me of a mini sorority without all the greek aspect. They truly care about each other and will do whatever it takes to have each others backs. Back at home Cash Money is there as her best friend and the person that will always love her! She truly loves him too but with this hold that Dylan has over her there isn't much she can about her feelings towards Cash. She doesn't want anything to happen to anyone and she knows how unstable Dylan is. "Through thick and thin, Cash Money is my rock, and I know more than anything that the love I have for him runs deeper than any river. I feel his love moving from within my veins."There comes a point in every person's life when you feel you must take back what has been taken from you. It is time you are able to live your life to the fullest without any fears and Charley has finally reached that point. She comes up with a plan with the help of Cash and her friends. Will it work though??? Can she finally be rid of Dylan and live her life?This was a great read and I thought the author did an amazing job with the story! It has a great flow and isn't rushed but you don't feel like things drag on either. It is a rare gem to find and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book, Loving Charley. There is a cliffhanger ending and we will have to wait until book 3 to see what happens next.

    Finding Charley picks up where No Turning Back leaves us. It's a pretty big cliff hanger, and while I felt like it did resolve itself, I wish a little more attention would have been paid to that particular aspect of the story. Charley is about to had home for christmas break, and despite the fact that she is in love with Cash and is ready to move on with their relationship she decides that it is time for her to take action against Dylan, and she devises a plan that she believes will expose him as well as prevent him from hurting anyone else.I'll just start by saying that I didn't like the plan at all. I never really understood it completely, and the parts I did understand I didn't support. I wasn't alone in those feelings. Those closest to Charley didn't really like it either, but out of love and support for her they followed along. It was tough to watch Cash standing by her plan and supporting her even at the expense of his own feelings. Cash seems too good to be true most of the time. He is nothing but hot, loving, and supportive of Charley all the time. I really like Charley's family, and it was great to see them all together again for a while in this book. I loved learning more about Charley's parent's relationship, and when Charley's dad told her that he was Cash, I found that really sweet and heart warming. Despite Charley's sometimes questionable decisions, I really like her. I love that she knows who she is and knows where her roots are. She embraces where she came from, and while she wants to make sure she learns some independence and focuses on her own goals, she is still very connected to her hometown and family.I didn't like this book quite as much as I liked No Turning Back, but I still enjoyed spending time with these characters and I will be reading the next in the series to see where things go from here.*An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review

    Finding Charley picks up where No Turning Back left off - a drunken Jackalope Joe confessing to being the one that helped Dylan. He is one of the very few that know Charley's secret, one of the people she trusted the most…how could he do this to her? She is utterly devastated, Cash is ready to come to her rescue once again, but Charley knows what she needs to do, and she needs be strong and do it on her own, with maybe a little help from the Kluft girls. It's time. Time for Charley to take her life back from Dylan. Time to regain her control so she can move forward with her life and not keep looking over her shoulder. To do that, she's going to have to take him down from the inside, and she'll do this with the help of her family, her best friends, and some unexpected friends as well. Stock up on the hand sanitizer and mouthwash, because for this plan to work, Charley's going to have to get awful cozy with the asshole…er, um, Dylan.Cash is the number one person against Charley's idea, but we all know Charley, she's going to do things her way, but can Cash just sit back and watch? Watching from the sidelines is slowly eating him away, how much can he take before he breaks? Charley doesn't like the person she is becoming and what she is doing to the person she cares the most about, but regardless of the risks, she's got to do what it takes to take Dylan down once and for all. Will Cash get his chance for revenge as well?In Finding Charley, we continue to see Charley grow and learn to rely on herself more than everyone else, but she also learns the importance of family and friends. I absolutely loved No Turning Book (book 1 in the Full Circle series), but I loved Finding Charley even more. Not only have the characters grown and became like close friends of mine, you can tell the author, Casey Peeler, has grown a lot as well. Super awesome job and I can't wait until Loving Charley is released! Oh, and Cash $ can crash my party anytime! ;-)

    Received a copy in exchange for an honest review...3.5 StarsThis picked up right where No Turning Back left off, I got right back into the story, straight back into my country accent which I love about this book and settled down to find out what the hell was going to happen in this! I mean seriously. .?Joe one of her close friends has some explaining to do!The writing flowed more for me this time, no stop starty scenes. I enjoyed that Charley went home for this book so we got to see her there rather than at college for the most part, with her Sister and best friend Piper, plus of course the hot Cash!I wish Charley hadn't of kissed a boy before going home, she was then so into Cash that I wanted to shout at her, what were you doing with the other guy then? But luckily, that was a flash in the pan, and nothing compared to the scheme she was about to come up with to get back at Dylan! I was shocked at this plan, it seemed Charley went from scared to grew a pair in 60 seconds! And Cash.... Oh my god, he was tortured through this! He put up with so much! I was wondering when he was going to say enough! Argh....I can't say anything else, it will spoil, but I was kept on the edge of my seat between nerves for her safety and the consequences to her relationship with Cash. The plan ended how I expected it would, although I was expecting a bit more drama, but maybe that is my fault / issue and not the books, I am possibly de-sensitized due to other books read.... I don't know. Still a great gripping ending and I had a great time reading this, it was fab getting back to Charley and the gang. There is a cliffhanger....but I do love to be tortured a little, we do get some closure, so it isn't a complete dangle off a steep cliff edge left seething, just a little one foot over......I will be reading the next in the series!!

    Finding Charley picks up where No Turning Back leaves off with Charley trying to absorb what has just happened. How could she have misplaced her trust in Joe. But instead of falling into the arms of Cash and allowing him to take care of her she decides to stand on her own two feet. She may lean on Cash but she has a plan to take back her life and get Dylan Sloan out of it forever.I absolutely love this series and although I was Team Cash from the word go, I didn’t think it was possible to fall more for a character. Cash is just the epitome of sweet. He is always ready, willing and able to help Charley. He seems to know her what she’s feeling and knows when to push or just be content with what they have. Their stolen moments together melted my heart and their love for each other unwaivering in spite of the circumstances.Charley’s plan to bring Dylan to justice had me a little on edge. Of course, Dylan appeared to be regretful of his actions but you could tell that there was much more to his deceit. It had me on edge any time Charley was with him, waiting to see how things would play out.With the help of the Kluft Girls, her sister, Jackalope Joe and of course Cash we watch Charley find her inner strength, the ability to express what she wants and the desire to go after it. I truly enjoy watching these characters interact. I could feel Charley’s inner turmoil with what she was doing but it was a means to an end.Oh and what end……I will be binding my time until the release of Loving Charley. Well done Casey! If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet Charley and Cash a/k/a Char-Coal and Cash $ you are missing out. This an amazing series and it just keeps getting better. Go grab you copy now, you won’t be sorry.

    I downloaded both books today. I spent my afternoon reading because I was drawn in by the first book and was more than excited to be able to continue Charley's story. Charley is a sweet and strong southern girl that has her moments when she feels like she is going to crumble (and honestly who doesn't?) but with her friends and Cash having her back, she realizes that she can take on the world and the monster that gives her world nightmares at times.This book picks up where No Turning Back stops. Charley is sick at the thought that someone that she trusted would betray like he did and lets that person know that she needs time to process everything to see if forgiveness is even an option. Charley heads home for Christmas break and knows that she will run into the creep that hurt her in the first book. Even though she is dating Cash and is head over heels in love with him (who wouldn't be?), she devises a plan to take Dylan done and to show him once and for all that he does not control her. Cash, Piper, Tessa, and the Kluft girls do not like her plan and tell her so but they go along with it because they want Charley to be able to make her nightmare stop and to show the world the kind of person that Dylan Sloan really is. Charley wants him stopped before he hurts another girl and she knows that she is the only one that can do it.Finding Charley is a book that shows that the strength of one person and their support system can make or break someone. Due to the incredible support system, Charley grows as a person and she knows what she needs to do and who she can count on when the going gets tough.Loving Charley cannot come out soon enough!!

    Finding Charley picked up right where No Turning Back left, leaving us with no uncomfortable gaps to try to figure out. I absolutely loved No Turning Back and I absolutely loved Finding Charley. In finding Charley the "plan" is in full effect, even though not everyone fully supports the plan. Heck I don't even support the plan fully, but Charley feels it needs to be done to see that Dylan gets what he deserves. Except there is one glitch...Dylan has changed, or at least it seems he has changed. My heart breaks for Cash in some of the scenes where Charley is fully focused on the plan. Once again the ending is an OMG moment! It might not be as intense as No Turning Back's life shattering cliffhanger, but you are left wondering what is going to happen. Will Charley and Cash finally get their happily ever after? Will Dylan finally be punished for what he did to Charley?Casey's writing drags you in and holds on to the very end leaving you wanting to know how this all plays out. The characters we love are all there. We got to learn more about Charley's parents, my heart completely melted when her dad said, "Charley, I was Cash. The moment I realized your mama was the one for me, I knew there was not letting go. Cash isn't going to let you go, and I know that deep down you love him, too." Another 5 Kiss novel from Casey Peeler. I cannot wait to see how this series ends!

    Finding Charley begins exactly where No Turning Back left the reader in complete devastation. Realizing Joe was part of Dylan's plan to keep tabs on Charley causes her to put matters into her own hands to stop him once and for all. With the help of her close-knit friends, the Kluft girls, as well as Cash Money, her family, and a couple of unlikely characters, Charley devises a plan to take down Dylan Sloan before he causes more pain and hardship for her or anyone else.In the second installment of Casey Peeler's Full Circle series, we see Charley grow as a character, proving she has what it takes to stand up for herself. We also see the hot country boy, Cash $, fight for what he wants, both literally and physically. If you didn't fall in love with Cash in NTB, trust me, you most definitely will in FC. Casey does a wonderful job incorporating the secondary characters in this novel. In my opinion, they grow just as much as the primary ones, not only setting the stage to help put Charley's plan in motion but also providing the support system that she needs in order to remain focused. Casey is an excellent author, and even though I loved NTB, I absolutely adored FC. I cannot wait until Loving Charley is released. Casey, you most definitely have me as a fan for life! Job well done!

    I absolutely loved this book oh and Cash $UPDATE:Do you know how excited I was to get a copy of this book to read for this blog tour!Over-The-Fricking-Moon!Can I saw this - WOWCash $ at the end.....total swoonworthy moment.When you read that scene you will totally know know what I'm talking about.After finding out the hidden truth of betrayal by one of her most trusted and loving friends Charley has yet again hit rock bottom....all because of some egotistical maniac, that thinks he can get what he wants, when he wants, and clearly can't take no for an answerAaarrrggghhhh...seriously douche! Grow the fuck up!In this book we see a change in Charley, she seems to have gained courage and determination to finally rid herself of her past demons and the one who keeps bringing her down.....Dylan.We see her love and affection for Cash $ grow, further-while breaking their hearts in the process of bringing Dylan down.I like how Casey has written the last scene of NTB in the beginning of FC, just to refresh our memories and she totally picks up the storyline from there.I thought that I couldn't possibly fall any harder for the hot cowboy Cash $....hell I was wrongI fell hard for Cash and I can't wait to see what happens to their relationship in Loving Charley

    Finding Charley is a great book. Finding Charley is the second book int he Full Circle series. It can not be read as a stand alone. You must read No Turning back first. Finding Charley starts right where No Turning Back left off.After Joe comes clean about his involvement with Dylan, Charley comes up with a plan to stop Dylan. This plan is absolutely crazy but true to Charley's character. Everyone goes along with Charley's plan because they know Charley will do want she see as the right thing to do no matter who is behind her plan. Joe seems to be the unknowing victim of Dyaln's plan. you get help but forgive his character for what he did. I could you not forgive Jack, he just to awesome not too. I would love to have some POV from Dylan to see what's going on in his head. There were a lot of situations in this book where I was like OMG why is Charley doing that. Cash has some tough times in this story too but it just shows us how strong Cash is. The ending was a crazy cliffhanger. It leaves a lot of questions as to what happens next. I can't wait to read the next.

    "Previously on No Turning Back"... loved that! We continue the story of Charley, Cash, Tessa,Piper,Joe, Dylan, and the amazing Kluft girls. Charley is playing with the devil and fire in the second book of the Full Circle series, let me tell the support she gets from her girls is amazing and the love between Charley and Cash is even stronger in this book. I love Finding Charley more than No Turning Back, the Kluft girls are even more amazing, Cash is even hotter and Charley is somewhat smarter.. I say somewhat because she is INSANE in this book!! But nevertheless smart as hell. I mean I shouldn't talk because j probably would've thought the same thing as Charley.. lol I love Finding Charley just like I loved No Turning Back. You've got me excited for Loving Charley (book 3) which I m hoping will be here soon Ms. Casey! *wink wink* Please don't torture us and make us wait long!! I give Charley,Cash, and the gang 5 Stars! ~ Chris

    The end of the No Turning Back blew me away. It was so unexpected. It had me in a total suspense.I really really could not wait for Finding Charley.Finding Charley is truly a wonderful follow-up.The story delivers intensity, depth, angst, twist and turns that had me glued to each page and frantically turning them.Deeply heartfelt, powerful story. Addictive and beautiful writing style. Interesting and intriguing, emotional characters. You can see they growth since the first book. This installment is also a full package.Finding Charley is a story I loved from the first word until the last one.I was well and truly sucked in.Can´t wait for the third book.≧◔◡◔≦ 5 ✰ read ≧◉◡◉≦>>>ARC received in exchange for an honest review<<<

    I was given a complementary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Wow!!! Ended in a huge cliffhanger, I am seriously suffering from a book hangover and can not wait till the third book releases. However, Casey did such an amazing job once again bringing all of the characters to life. There are many ups and downs throughout the story causing the reader to feel many different emotions right along with the characters. I think that I am personally drawn to this series so much, because I am a small town girl and feel like I can relate to so many of their experiences. Highly recommend this book and can't not wait till May 2014 when the third book in this series releases!Reviewed by Trista
