Debut novel Shelter Me by Author Kathy Coopmans

At the young age of nineteen, Shayne Andrews thought she had it all. She had the love of her life, her high school sweetheart, and a bright future ahead of her. That is, until one day he just disappeared, leaving a note as his only goodbye. With her heart shattered and broken, Shayne did the only thing she could. She left her small town on the shores of Lake Michigan to start her life over, needing to distance herself from the memories she and Luke had made. At that time, she vowed to herself that she would never return to her hometown again. Seven years later, Shayne realizes that fate is not on her side as she returns home for her aunt’s funeral, bringing back the one secret she swore to protect.

Luke Schavone has regretted every day that he had to leave Shayne behind. Though he didn’t have a choice, his heart still bore the scars from the impact. After five years, Luke returned only to find that Shayne was gone. His best friend was the only lifeline he had to finding her, but Adam wasn’t talking. When the one thing Luke has wanted everyday for the past seven years runs right into him one night, he becomes determined to make sure he doesn’t lose her again.

At first, Shayne is hesitant. She wouldn’t be able to survive losing him again, but the pull toward him is so fierce, she can’t deny herself the chance. With the decision to start over, Luke and Shayne must admit truths and come to terms with the events that forced them apart in the first place. When secrets are revealed and old threats come to pass, will Luke be able to shelter Shayne from the destruction, or will she become lost to him forever?

 ☆☆4 Heart Warming Stars!!☆☆

Where do I start? This is Kathy Coopmans  debut book. And, I am always nervous when reading any authors debut book. Simply because I don't know what to expect from them. Honestly, Kathy surprised me. I really did like this book. Granted there was somethings I didn't like. But, it really was a good story.

Seven years ago Shayne Andrews woke up to find out that Luke Schavone the love of her life left. Luke & his family left with nothing but  a note that he left for her. Shayne was beside herself. Everywhere she looked she saw Luke. She talked her aunt into letting her move as far away as possible.

Seven years later and Shayne is back. Her aunt who was basically the only mother she ever had had died. Now, she's back in the place she never wanted to come back too. Luckily, she has her cousin Adam who's more like a brother for her. And, Bubba & his wife Jenn. The 3 of them really do love her and support her and all the decisions she's made for herself.

Just when Shayne thinks she can come and go the ground she's standing on crumbles right out from underneath her. Luke is back and has been back for the past 2yrs looking for her!

Shayne is instantly drawn to Luke. As well as him to her. They never stopped loving each other. Luke puts everything out there for Shayne. He tells her everything. Or so she thinks. Deep down in her gut she's got this feeling he isn't telling her everything. But, Shayne isn't telling Luke everything as well. She has her own secret.

Luke & Shayne have to learn to forgive the other one. Both have bombshell secrets. Shayne's secret once it's out there it out. Luke on the other hand. He is trying to protect Shayne yet is only making it worse by keeping things.

I really did love Luke & his family. They really do love Shayne and truly feel guilty for the past 7 years. Erin is Shayne's best friend. Her and her daughter Sienna I really liked too. Adam has always been Shayne's confidant and he loves her just like a brother. I loved him. I'm stoked Adam & Erin's story is next.

Shayne has been through a lot. And, she did it mostly alone. Better then I would of. She's a very woman. Shayne handled things the best way she could. She did what was best for her and everyone involved. Luke had a bad hand dealt to him as well. Ended up missing out on a lot due to things out of his control. But, he stepped up like a man. Took it like a man & he melted my heart into a thousand pieces

After 7 years  of torture for both Shayne & Luke they forgave each other too easy for me! But, their love for each other was written all over their faces. Their chemistry was hot. And, I mean hot. I definitely teared up a bunch  a times. I definitely liked this book.


"Baby, I never thought I would get to taste those sweet, sexy, seriously fuckable lips again."

"Fuckable? I ask, "What happened to us starting over?"

Luke brings his mouth to my ear. "I said I wanted us to start over, and I meant it. Doesn't mean I don't remember everything that happened between us, my beautiful girl. Especially involving those fuckable lips," he whispers, a glint of mischief in his eyes.

"Oh, is all I can get my mouth to say.

"What's the matter baby? Did I kiss you senseless?" Luke asks as he pulls me up into a standing position.

"You so wish, big boy."
