~Synopsis~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
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
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
Feeling like the life is being choked out of her in the small town of Anaconda, Montana, Denver Dempsey craves the escape that college offers … even if that means leaving her “best friend with benefits” and looking for a new way to forget. Thinking she's found the perfect hookup in Ransom, Denver's outlook on college is bright. That is, until Greer shows up looking for a second chance, and Ransom's interest turns to hatred.
Love. Hate. Triangle.

~About the Author~
Since the dawn of time, Lynetta Halat has lived to read and has written innumerable stories and plays. A lover of good books, bad boys, and kickass tunes, she'd always dreamt of penning books that people could connect with and remember. She also has a secret penchant for wringing the emotions out of unsuspecting readers, and she collects reader's tears in much the same way that wine connoisseurs collect their favorite vintage.
Her first novel, Every Rose, was the perfect catalyst to launch her into the world of publishing, effectively burrowing her way into the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world. Everything I've Never Had was her follow-up adult romance novel. Now, she has penned Used, a New Adult Romance that she hopes sinks its teeth into you and doesn't let go.
Her love of the English language prompted her to pursue a Master's degree in English from Old Dominion University in Virginia, where she also minored in snark and interpretive dance. She lives somewhere along the Mississippi Gulf Coast with her adorable husband, two amazing sons, and two loveable dogs. When she's not writing riveting stories, she likes to focus on her macramé art and her scouring of eBay, where she buys locks of hair from her favorite rock stars, most especially Bret Michaels and Dave Grohl.
Used will be one of those books that you will never want to put down. Ok let me first start off by saying that I didn’t know what the hell “barrel riding” was so I goggled it, don’t judge me. It was such a shame that Denver really viewed herself in that way because of her parent’s background, my heart continually broke for her. And Greer he was just doing what he thought would make her happy, but in the end was their friendship worth it. It’s so horrible that she was an only child and never felt the love that she was suppose to from her mother and father and because of her mother’s past she thought that would be her future so why not go with the flow and let people assume. Then in the middle of the story we cue Ransom, sweet heavens this man is sex on sticks, or as in the story, he is sex on a “bull”. He is everything that screams bad boy stay away, but in Denver and his case they can’t stay away from each other. The magnetism the feel towards each other is indescribable. Oh and the ending, the ending of this story will have you saying, “Hell no, I want to find out what’s next.” Great writing by Lynetta Halat, fantastic story line and a wonderful twist on a rodeo setting.
