    1. ::: FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED ::: 4.5 STARS!! ::: What a gorgeous book!! Intense, addictive, equally heart-wrenching and heart-warming, this story captured my heart from the first chapter and is now one of my top favorites! I LOVED IT!!! From the moment I read this blurb, I just knew this was a book I had to read.I don’t know what makes a great love story I only know what makes my love story. I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thi [...]

    2. 5 StarsHe was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other's shattered pieces and made a whole.I don't know what it is about this book that touched me on such a viscaral level, but I still can't stop thinking about this story or the ending. I've read other books by this author and I already knew she could write, but this book just blew the other ones out of the water. It was THAT good. Emotional, gripping, and unforgettable story of second chances and redemption, this is one story I wo [...]

    3. 2 stars!“He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole. If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine…ours is the greatest of them all.”This part of the blurb grabbed me, and I knew then and there I was going to read this book no matter what. Obviously from my rating I didn’t like it much, but you may very well love it so I encourage anyone who was interested before to give it a shot regard [...]

    4. 3.75 Stars”We are two broken people, finding strength in each other’s remaining pieces. We’ve both lost so much, paid so dearly for what we have left, for what we were allowed to keep. Maybe just maybe, it’s enough to make a whole. Our pieces. Together.”I don't know what to rate this book so please bare with me if the rating changes a few times in the next few days. M. Leighton went outside the box with this story and I found it intriguing and the writing was quotable and well done. I [...]

    5. 5 'Cry my eyeballs out' Stars This book wasAwe-Fucking-Some. From the vary first page it grabbed my attention and made me fall in love with it. I couldn't help but cry. Eden is starting fresh. She is starting new with her 6 year old daughter, Emmy. “Maybe this will finally be a place we can call home. Home safe home.”Emmy is the reason for Eden's living. Her daughter means everything to her and she would do whatever is in her power to protect and love her.Emmy was just this cute little thing [...]

    6. **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**Title: Pocketful of SandSeries: StandaloneAuthor: M. LeightonRelease date:March 15, 2015Rating: 4 starsGoing into this book, I wasn't too sure what the story was going to be about besides the fact that both main characters were dealing with troubled pasts. The synopsis doesn't tell you much more than that and I was pretty curious to see how it would play out. Although, I figured it was a safe bet to say that this book would be an emotional and pos [...]

    7. 5 My heart is Full StarsThis was quite possibly M. Leighton's finest work. With heartbreaking despair, second chances and redemption it is a book as beautiful as it is tragic. As a reader it sucked me into a realm of emotion and held me captive.Pocketful of Sand introduces Cole and Emmy. These two broken souls do not have anything different from those in other damaged love stories. Each have past tragedy. Each have a void in their souls. Neither is looking to fill those voids. What makes them un [...]

    8. 2.5 starsObviously I’m in the minority with this one, but this book just did not work for me. I’m normally a fan of broken people finding each other and healing. But in this case I think there was just too much drama. It started off promisingly, but the love story happened too quickly for me, and as the character’s pasts were revealed and the story played out, I got more and more disconnected. Eden and her young daughter, Emmy, have just moved to a small coastal town. Running from the horr [...]

    9. Cole. Cole. Cole. My, my, my.I haven't been this affected and yet, notupset and irritated by a book guy in such a long time. I was SO thankful and grateful and HAPPY with how Michelle pulled Cole off. I was worried, naturally, from the first page, when he comes off with the attitude and off-kilter sexiness that you know is going to drive her wild and be this un-contained beast throughout the book. BUT instead of making him the complete jerk that he could have been, and that I see SO much in book [...]

    10. 4 Heartbreaking Stars!!! Really liked it! And the ending'sunique!The whole story had an undercurrent of sadness but when these two broken people find each other, and they gravitate towards each other, you can’t help but root for them both to find some peace, to find some hope of something better, with each other.We can sense early on that Eden and her daughter, Emmy, are running away from a terrible past. Walking on the beach of their new hometown, they see Cole building a sandcastle looking l [...]

    11. How do I tell you just how amazing a book is especially when it is one that took me on a beautiful emotional roller coaster ride??When it is a book that as you begin from page one, you can feel the story slowly weaving itself into the fabric of your soulowing that once you are doneis book will be a part of you no matter whatWell, Pocketful of Sand did just thatI seriously went through so much in this bookAnd no surprise since this is a M. Leighton novel. But, truly, this book eased it's way in t [...]

    12. OMG! So good!I’m such a character driven reader. I need great characters. This author doesn’t disappoint me ever with her character and Pocketful of Sand is no exceptionWhen you have two broken…no three broken people, can they combine their broken pieces to make one family? Only if they let each other in and trust. That’s a problem for Eden, she doesn’t trust anyone. She has great reasons for it. And no, we don’t get to know what they are right away.Cole feels guilt. So much guilt th [...]

    13. 2.75/5 starsI really liked the premise of the story and I liked the beginning and found it promising. But after that it just went way too fast, too much "insta-love" and some other things.Things I liked:- Emmy She was very cute and I liked her- The beginning of the story- The beach- The main characters: I liked them both seperately from each other.Things I didn't like:- How fast their relationship develops. He is a hermit for years but all of a sudden he's not anymore. All of a sudden they're ha [...]

    14. 3.5 Stars for Cole & Eden.★★★My Casting:ColeEden*sigh* I hate it when everyone is raving about a book and I'm just left feeling barely lukewarm about it. That's what happened with Pocketful of Sand.This is the tragic story of a single mother, who is on the run from her secrets and a broken hero, who has his own set of demons, coming together to heal one another's wounds, left by their traumatic pasts.“I think broken people gravitate toward one another, like our shattered pieces conne [...]

    15. 4.5 StarsIt was pretty good, but the drama part was really-really too much, and Eden's past still makes me shiver. :(( But I still highly recommend it!

    16. I crave him like I crave sunshine and air and water and love. His scent, his taste, they weave a sensual spell around me, flooding my blood with heat and need.I wasn’t too sure about reading Pocketful of Sand. It sounded like any other contemporary New Adult, but also not. It looked like just another book with a pretty cover, but not quite. Something about the synopsis called to me, and I answered.And I definitely, definitely am damn glad that I did.Pocketful of Sand begins with Eden Taylor, w [...]

    17. Where to start? This book hurt my heart. The story, the characters, the premise of it all, just wow. I've always loved M. Leighton's books, but this one just blew me away. If you haven't grabbed it yet, what are you waiting for. You won't be able to put it down. Incredible.

    18. I honestly don't know what to think about this book. I seriously don't know how to rate this or what to even to say about it.

    19. I was immediately pulled into this story and became enthralled. It was intriguing, beautifully written, and brought out many emotions. It had me wondering and guessing and just feeling and anticipating. This is the story of two damaged people. One quick meeting was all it took to trigger extreme awareness between Eden and Cole. But he is broody, distant, closed off and isolated. He is broken and does not want to feel anything at all. But Eden and her daughter Emmy seem to pull him in.It's as tho [...]

    20. The only thing the author could have done to enhance the experience of reading this would have been to include a box of tissues with each purchase. Michelle, you need to get on that!! ;-)I swear I went through a whole box while reading it, and thinking about writing this has me started on another.I'm just going to give you 3 reasons why you should read Pocketful of Sand:Reason 1: Cole, Eden, and Emmy. Cole: Yes, he's hot, ripped, dreamyyou get the point!! After all, this IS a M. Leighton book we [...]

    21. ***I received an ARC for my honest review***I have been struggling for weeks to find the words to describe this book. I've started and stopped this review so many times I feel like I'm going crazy. It's so different from anything that Leighton has written before, and I mean that in the best possible way. The book tells the story of Eden and Emmy. A young mother and daughter duo, who are looking to begin a fresh start in a small New England town. I loved Eden. From the start you can tell there is [...]

    22. 4.5 This Made A Great Love Story Stars! Pocketful of Sand was way more than I was expecting. All the reviews were somewhat vague, so I went into this not really knowing what was going to transpire throughout the book. I thought it would be your average romance, however, that is not the case at all, this book really took me by surprise. The two main characters themselves were completely and utterly amazing, and their story was devastatingly heartwarming.I don't what to be a spoily sport, but just [...]

    23. This is another great story by m leighton. From the moment I started reading, I had so many questions that kept me wanting to read until the end. When I first started reading it, It felt a little bit similar to some other favorites such as safe haven and archers voice, just because of the hiding away in a small town in a small house, but it had a feel to it that you knew was going to give you a completely different yet captivating story. After you learn more of eden's life, all you want is for h [...]

    24. I finished Pocketful of Sand and I felt my heart splinter and get put back together!! It was beautiful, the story kept me guessing as to what happened to make them that broken. Revealed in such a way that made my heart break for them. Another brilliant, heart-felt read from Michelle Leighton!!Pocketful of Sand is a must read! You must meet Cole and Eden and let's not forget Emmyene stealer on more than one occasion. I knew that this book was going to captivate me when I saw the cover. I knowyou [...]

    25. More Reviews Here: Readers Live A Thousand LivesOn paper this book seems like your typical contemporary romance, but trust me when I tell you it is completely unprecedented and like nothing you have ever read before. This book will knock your socks off. The story is addictive, the characters are amazing, and the romance is heart melting.Every single character in this book wormed their way into my heart.

    26. DNF @ 37%This is the first time that I have ever hit the "request a refund" button on a book. I really wanted to like this one. I'm frustrated that I wasn't liking it. That blurb!? It's really good. Right?! I thought, "Hell, yes! This is my kind of read!" Sadly, I had to put this one down. I wanted to put it down at 20% but wanted to give it a little while longer. Sometimes it takes a minute to get into a story. I knew at 37% that I couldn't keep going, I wasn't liking anything about it. Everyth [...]

    27. This book was a Did Not Finish - (DNF) for meDon't get me wrong the writing was good and and the characters were great but I didn't connect to the story as much as I wanted too. Stopped reading at 35%

    28. Review by Lisa Kane"We'd stay on the beach for hours building sandcastles. She loved it. And before we left, she'd stuff sand in my pocket. Every time. She said it was so we could take some of the happy with us."Eden and her daughter, Emily, are walking along the beach when they spot a man building a beautiful sand castle. He is so intent on his work he doesn't seem to realize they are behind him. But then he looks up and makes eye contact and Eden feels a connection to this gorgeous stranger. H [...]
