Leah and Adam have never met.
However, they live parallel lives.
Lives plagued by addiction.

When a tragic, but common demon, surfaces between their siblings, Leah and Adam’s worlds collide, never to be the same again.

Adam loses his sister forever.
Leah’s brother returns.
Both gain a niece, neither knew existed.

Now they face an obstacle to raise a niece together while Leah’s brother struggles to free himself from the grip of drug addiction as Adam’s family grieves for the sister and daughter they lost.

A commonality is discovered.
Deep wounds begin to heal.
Lines blur as their lives entwine.


“Do you want to talk about it?” I
hesitantly ask, running my own finger along the steering wheel.

“I’m not sure. It’s just all so
crazy in my head. Nothing makes sense. Nothing is going as I’ve planned.”

“Sometimes the best things that
happen are the ones you least expect,” I say, like some damn philosophy

She turns to me with a serious
face. “Adam, what if Shane doesn’t get clean? What if he can’t do it?” A tear
clings to her lashes before falling from her eye and trailing down her cheek.

Tammy's Review
5 Bare Naked Stars        *****

Omg Familiar Ground will grip your heartstrings from the first chapter. You will go through love, death, tragedy, rebuilding, second chances, heartbreak, happiness, and redemption.

This is a tale of addiction and tragedy.  The story starts off with Adam getting a phone call to come to the morgue to identify his sister Cassi’s body.  She overdosed and Leah’s brother Shane is calling Adam. 

First time Adam meets Shane is at the morgue.  He is so full of anger and hate that Shane is alive and his sister is dead. 

Adam is a construction worker, hottie, single guy enjoying life.

Leah, a college student and dance instructor walks past Adam’s construction site everyday never realizing the connection they share. Her life has been full of tragedy and heartache.

After the death of Adam’s sister Shane asks Leah to take care of their daughter while he gets clean. Her single life is thrown upside down but she won’t have it any other way.  She instantly falls in love with Dani.

Adam and Leah meet and realize this is the first time they’ve seen each other.

“I’ll always be here, Leah. No matter what happens, you have me.”

They instantly have a connection unlike any other.  They can’t fight the attraction.  But their primary goal is taking care of three year old Dani.

“There’s no pressure, no expectations, no judging with him. He is who he is, and he takes everyone else as they are with no criticism or opinions.”
Spending all their time together taking are of Dani.  They start to fall in love with each other. 

Then tragedy strikes.  Can they get past another blow or can love find its way forever to them both?
There are so many times the unexpected happens to keep you on the edge of your seat reading.  I couldn’t put the book down.  I had to know what was going to happen to Leah and Adam.
I love the book was told in both points of views.  It was amazing getting inside Adam’s head.  It made the story.

I loved the Epilogue!!  A perfect ending. Looking forward to the next Michelle Lynn book.

Michelle moved
around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before
settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides
with her husband and two kids.  She
developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for
her passion to write.   With the
encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many
stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or
writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the
phone, or hanging out with her family and friends.  But after chasing around twin preschoolers
all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to
