My review for Cyrus by Esther E. Schmidt


Blurb: It seems like obtaining everything you want in life isn’t always what one would expect. After smashing his goal in life a little ahead of schedule, Cyrus is a little disappointed and slightly frustrated. So he heads back to his roots. Back to his family. Back to the swamp.

Bertie doesn’t need a man. She juggles enough being a business woman along with taking care of her Pa and her, so it seems, brainless brother.

With a new mission to recharge and set some new life goals, Cyrus stumbles across what is missing in his life. Connections are made and desire swirls but after an idea goes awry what happens when things are set straight? Will their love hold strong? Or will a rash decision bite someone in the butt?

Swamp Head Series – Author’s note;

Cyrus is the first novella in The Swamp Head Series; a seven book novella series based on a family born and raised in the swamp. Each sibling will get their own INSTAlove story told and even though it is a series, each book is a standalone. Come meet Cyrus and his other six brothers and sisters; Chester, Earle & Zeke (twins), Roscoe, Hallie Mae & Elsie (twins). Although they each have their own character and language, I’ve chosen to use words like Voila merde, when I mean go to sh*t, yapper for mouth, or connard when I mean a**hole, duck/effin for f*ck/f*cking… well, you get the idea. All fun and games with a bite and a little mud.

May be spoilers:

Cyrus is 7 chapters and is the first in the Swamp Heads series. I’m a huge fan of this author. This is about Cyrus and Bertie. Again, just like with all of this author’s stories, it starts off with a bang and keeps moving fast. Bertie seems hard in the beginning, but I loved her. Cyrus is just getting back and when he sees Bertie, he falls instantly. I think it’s a case of instalove for the bother of them.

Bertie’s brother sold her father’s house to Cyrus and he’s in trouble so they both go to get him out of it. I love that they both tell each other their story early on.

She’s a virgin and there are some hot sex scenes going on. She’s a little down on herself with the scars on her face, but he loves her completely and tries to show her that.

There’s a little blip where she’s mad at him and they are broken up for 3 weeks, but he won’t stay away from her. It’s just a short read, that was really good. I loved it. Even with the weird talking. Great read. They are engaged at the end. No epilogue. I gave it 4 stars. Thanks for reading. You can get it here: Cyrus: Swamp Heads
