Adrienne Frances ~ Beyond The Orange Moon

Book #2 in the Mathews Family series

Genre: New Adult/Contemporary/Romance



Sometimes fate strikes in unexpected ways. 

Lucy Dalton was tired of living a life she didn't want.

Charlie Mathews was living the life he always wanted. But one night, fate changes the course of their lives forever. A year later, Lucy and Charlie's paths meet again, igniting a spark that neither can deny.

Lucy knows he doesn't remember her, but she's already in too deep. Charlie knows the unwritten family rule: Mathews men never admit when they're broken. 

Can they leave the past where it belongs and find a way to look beyond the orange moon?

Lucy Dalton met Charlie Mathews under the best of circumstances...which quickly turned into the worst of circumstances. In a moment, Lucy's and Charlie's lives changed forever. A moment that gave Lucy the incentive to give up on the career which she'd been working towards - a career she'd been expected to enter. Following that moment, she spent the next year unfocused. And then she runs into Charlie once again...and things start falling into place. A career doing something she's passionate about presents itself...and then, there's Charlie.

Lucy is so kind-hearted and loves with all she has. She also has a magic touch for making unique cupcakes. A sure way to win a man's heart, right? Charlie may be my favorite Mathews brother. He won me over in Under the Orange Moon. He's loving, loyal, and when he feels it in his gut, whatever it may be, he doesn't hesitate. He jumps in with both feet because anything else would be wasting time. When he began seeing Lucy at the park, he felt alive for the first time in awhile. Of course, he had to decide if he's ready and willing to move forward.

Lucy and Charlie together are beautiful. The pull between them - the attraction - is undeniable. That Lucy also loved Jack, Charlie's son, wholeheartedly - and that Jack felt the same way - only added to the feels. And this story delivers the feels. I loved the dynamics between the three of them and the emotions evoked. Both Lucy and Charlie have something to move forward from, even though Charlie doesn't remember that the thing they're both moving past is the same. I have to admit that I agreed with Lucy's decision to keep her secret. Yet, I also understood Charlie's reaction when the secret is revealed. I loved, loved the fact that Dylan, Charlie's little sister, played such a big roll in Charlie's epiphany where Lucy is concerned.

That this series revolves around the entire Mathews family is a real draw for me. A large, well-developed cast of characters that I can become 'friends' with, is something I adore. I love each and every one of the Mathews and getting reacquainted with the family was a thrill. I'm anxious for the other brothers' stories. But Charlie's and Lucy's story is always going to hold a special place in my heart.


Dylan Mathews grew up in a house that was always filled with good-looking guys. However, with four protective older brothers they never stood a chance.

Except for one.

Dylan knew she loved Ben McKenna from the first time she laid eyes on him. When he started sneaking in her room, she thought he felt the same way.

But just as their passion ignited, he left for college and never came back.

Until now.

Returning home after 5 years, Ben realizes Dylan has always been the one for him.

Can he win back her heart and finally find love under the orange moon?

Adrienne Frances spends her time as a writing consultant at a university near her home. In her spare time, she loves to be with her husband and two sons, who have made her exactly who she is today. Writing is a passion that she has appreciated for as long as she can remember. She believes that a wild imagination is a terrible thing to waste and should be captured and brought to life by all that are blessed to have one. This way of life is what led her to become a writer and later an author under Bandit Publishing. Her first celebrated novel, Under the Orange Moon, was released in March, 2014.
