ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

What I didn’t bargain for was what I’d felt when it was all said and done…absolutely nothing.

I’ve been sitting here staring at the screen for the better part of an hour trying to decide where to begin. How do you begin to describe a story that touched you so deeply? A story that was so phenomenally written that it encompassed every single facet of the New Adult genre yet was completely unique in every way. Broken people? Check. Feisty female? Check. Angst? Check. Love triangle? Check. Hot cowboys? Double Check! Knowing all this and more for the past few months, the slow build up to actually getting my hands on it was anticipation like no other. I’m not usually one who complains about having to wait for a book because I have an endless supply of things to read. However, as this was from one of my favorite authors, an author I have gotten to know on a personal level, the pure want, no, NEED, for this book was on a whole other level. Would it be as phenomenal as her other works? Would it rock me to my core, making me fall in love with new characters? Would I not be able to put down the book, completely engrossed in everything that was going on and wanting to know what happened next? Well, the answer was a resounding YES, for all those reasons and more.

“I’ve always wanted to make you mine. Ever since I understood what that meant. I’ve never seen anyone but you.”

From an early age, Denver learned time and time again that she could only count on herself. An absent father and a mother who only cared about what man was in her bed next, Denver had no other choice but to become self-reliant. I found myself MANY times throughout the book wanting to physically harm the mother. When you read the book, I feel extremely confident that you will return my sentiments. Not only did she not care with Denver, it was almost as if she was competing with her. She puts Denver in some pretty nasty situations, yet never is the mother she should be. Despite all this, Denver is smart, she is ambitious, and she hasn’t given up on life. She is a sure spitfire if I ever knew one. With a love or horses, barrel racing, and everything farm related, she dreams of nothing more than owning her own one day. Denver likes to believe she is a slut; proudly boasting it to anyone who wants to know. I don’t have issues with that word, but I did have issues with her calling herself that. Not because I felt like it was degrading, but because I didn’t view her that way. You’ll have to form your own opinions when you read Used. I understood why she viewed herself that way, but I didn’t agree with her terminology. Regardless, my heart hurt for her. The thing with Lynetta is she has this uncanny ability to put yourself in the character’s shoes, no matter what their situation is. You feel their pain, you feel their joy; you just feel EVERYTHING.

You can try to disguise manure.

You can dress it up pretty.

You can put a son-of-a-bitching leash on it and parade it downtown on Memorial Day.

It.Is.Still.Stinking.Ass.Shit.

And, despite all my defense mechanisms-I am still my mother’s daughter.


Next I have to talk about the two men in her life. Yes, you read that right; TWO. It isn’t as nefarious as it sounds though, so don’t fret. Greer is her best friend and eventual lover. They come together in a very unconventional way; Greer is grasping at straws to get any bit of Denver he can and Denver just doesn’t feel she has anything to give in return. Even before she is, as if there could BE a thing, she sees herself as damaged goods, which couldn’t be FURTHER from the truth! Even though you are going to have many people claim to be staunch Greer supporters and you are going to have many more that say they WERE up until a point, I could always see something behind what was given to us. For me, if he truly was the one that was supposed to be with her, there would have been nothing holding her back; no excuses, no false claims, nada. But there was. And for that reason alone, for me, it was never Greer. Now don’t read this and believe that she doesn’t end up with Greer. Regardless the outcome, I will always be Team Ransom.

I realize now that nothing about our date is romantic. It’s a date of cold, hard truths but also of bright, shiny promise.

Now, on to the main man of the hour; MY Ransom. Ransom was a bit of a conundrum but what I got from him, I LOVED. Sure of himself in a way that many would say cocky yet I say confident, he was a man who knew what he wanted. I thoroughly enjoyed the push pull in their friendship and how he didn’t take any of her shit. He called her on it and it endeared me to him all the more. I really wish I could say more but that would lead you in the direction of a spoiler and I just won’t do that.

“Until you’re mine, and mine only, I won’t touch you again.”

I’ve said it before and I will say it again; I LOVE Lynetta’s writing. You are drawn into the world of the characters seamlessly, and there’s just a flow that can’t be taught. It can’t be mastered. You either have it, or you don’t. There’s no stumbling along in a book of hers. No. Pages fly, hearts are ripped out, and she does a little dance on them. Every once in a while, if you are lucky, she puts you back together. But really, happy or sad, the true testament is that you make me feel. And that she does phenomenally.

I guess a toxic relationship like ours couldn’t die a quiet, dignified death. It had to go out with a bang-a spitting, sputtering, gut-wrenching bang. ( )

I am a slut. No worries. I've come to terms with it, and you will too. I’m not one of those girls who thinks she’s too plain, too fat, too skinny, too shy … no, I don’t have that kind of luck. I’m the girl who knows she’s just right for everyone. — Denver

Being in love with the same girl your entire life isn't all it's cracked up to be. She uses me in every way imaginable. How does she see me? I am her perpetual one-night stand. No strings, no attachments. Just mind-numbing sex ... for her anyway. — Greer

A reputation as a manwhore–with–a–heart–of–gold tends to precede me. But, I don’t do girls with issues, that is until this girl. It's this girl I want to fix. This girl I want to protect. And maybe … more. — Ransom


Well I will start by saying that if Lynetta wrote it I will read it. I have not found a book that she has written yet that I have not fallen in love with the story or the characters. Lynetta pours her heart and her soul into her writing and it clearly shows with everything she has written thus far. Used is no exception. Once again Lynetta has brought us characters that will pull at your heart strings from the first page till the last page. This is a different kind of story then anything Lynetta has written before and I was excited to see where she was going to go with this story once I read the synopsis. She did not disappoint me at all. I LOVED every single minute of this story.

Denver is a Barrel Racer…. Greer is a calf roper. …. Ransom is a Bull Rider……

Denver and Greer grew up together. Greer has stood by Denver through all the challenges she has faced in her life, from being called a slut at school, to be bullied by her peers, he has even stood by her in instances with numerous different step father’s. They know everything about each other, or so it seems they do.

They are best friends, but they are also friends with benefits. Denver does not think she deserves to be loved, and refuses to get into a relationship with Greer or anyone else. Denver goes off to college and to separate herself from Greer because she has felt bad about the way she has treated him all through their sex and nothing more relationship. She wants him to be able to find someone he deserves who will love him and give him what he deserves. Greer does not give up that easily though and he follows her to the same college.

Ransom, hot sexy bull rider, and he also is a known man-whore. When Denver and Ransom meet there is chemistry between the two. She has always followed his career and he has always followed her’s as well. Can these two have a relationship with Ransom being a man-whore and Denver thinking she is a Slut? What about Greer, where is he in all of this?

This is a love/ hate triangle. These characters are raw, gritty, and so damn flawless.

This story does end with more to come, but it does not end in a major cliffhanger in my opinion. You will definitely want more and you will definitely want to know what happens with these 3 individuals. Who’s Team will you be on when you finish this story? I myself I am 100% team Ransom and when you read this awesome story you will know why I chose Random!!!!

I can not wait for Freed!!!!!!!









I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THIS ONE !!!!!!




I am a slut. Or am I? I don't even know anymore. I do know that I'm embracing my newfound reputation and that scares the hell out of me.--Denver

My reputation as my college's favorite man whore with a heart of gold tends to proceed me. But one line I've always drawn is no girls with issues. That is until this girl. It's this girl I want to fix. This girl I want to protect. And maybe more.--Ransom

Being in love with the same girl for your entire life isn't all it's cracked up to be. She uses me in every way imaginable. How does she see me? I am her one night stand who gets repeated over and over again. There are no strings, no attachments. No emotions. For her anyway. But when does unrequited love become an unhealthy obsession?—Greer
