"If you haven’t read a book by Nyrae Dawn yet, I highly recommend them! Beautiful, heart-breaking and highly emotional, Charade is a story that will stay with me." ~ Mostly YA Book Obsessed
"Charade is a book about loss, love, true happiness and finding strength in those that you love. It is powerful. It is beautiful. It is a book that will stay with me for a long time to come." ~ Lisa, a reader
"Ms. Dawn’s writing found a way into my heart, it was poignant and felt real. This certainly won’t be the last story I pick up from her. I’m officially a fan!" ~ The Readers Den

PROPS FOR FREEING CARTER:
"No one captures the teenage boy quite as well as Nyrae Dawn. This is a heartwarming story with the perfect mix of emotions. LOVED!" ~Dominique
"Honestly all I can say is Nyrae Dawn is by all means one of my favorite authors of all times! She has a way with words that I can only idolize. She had me in awe with What a Boy Wants, in tears with What a boy Needs, and completely speechless for Freeing Carter." ~Danielle
PROPS FOR WHAT A BOY NEEDS:
"What A Boy Needs is an amazing companion! Nothing like the first book, Ms. Dawn takes the reader on a dark path that consumes your every thought. Beautifully woven into a tale of heart-break and love, What A Boys Needs is exhilarating!" ~Books with Bite
"Nyrae Dawn knows how to write boys, and write boys well. With Bastian, and now with Jaden, I’m so impressed with how she can get inside their heads and make them convincingly all-boy, but also give them a layer of vulnerability and real emotion."
"Overall, What A Boy Needs is a fantastic and irreverently funny read about the truth of love, the steadfastness of friendship, the freedom of moving forward, and where a boy’s worth truly lies." ~Dani
"An emotionally raw deeply insightful follow up to the excellent WHAT A BOY WANTS is that rare thing, a book that is a sequel, and yet better than the excellent original." ~Michael
"What I love about Nyrae Dawn's storytelling is that she uses the "quiet" moments to as much effect as the big gestures."
"The story comes to a full, beautifully written circle. A true treasure that I will not soon forget. I loved WHAT A BOY WANTS so much. I loved Bastian and Aspen. I still love that story. It was funny and heart-warming. Believe it or not, I think I may love WHAT A BOY NEEDS even more. Just do me a favor and don't tell Bastian, okay?" ~Andrea
"She is in tune to every detail and writes a boy’s point-of-view as good as any I’ve ever read. She’s spot on with the antics and the thoughts of an 18 year old boy, how they view girls, the way they speak and how easily their self-confidence and hearts can be shattered." ~Karla
"Nyrae Dawn has a true gift of capturing the voice of her characters perfectly. She makes you feel like you're part of the family." ~The Autumn Review
PROPS FOR WHAT A BOY WANTS:
"There's some hilarity, some great sexy scenes, and a knock-you over fun love story with great setting." ~Jolene Perry (reader and writer)
"I loved this story. And if you are looking for fun, sweet romance from a guys perspective, this is perfect for you." ~Jenny (a reader and writer)
"WHAT A BOY WANTS offered my very favorite things in a book: a quick, easy to read pace; loads of laughs; characters I want to befriend and who experience true growth. I honestly loved every little piece of this book. It has made me so, so happy and put a huge smile on my face. I can't wait to read Nyrae Dawn's next book, from Jaden's point of view, WHAT A BOY NEEDS.
" ~Andrea from The Bookish Babe
"Nyrae Dawn writes Bastian with such authenticity."
"What A Boy Wants is a funny, honest read, full of heart, about a boy who doesn’t believe in love discovering that love can sneak up on you when you least expect it." ~Dani from Refracted Light
"If you're looking for a fun, fast, romantic read but one that still has character growth and a whole lot of heart then give What a Boy Wants a try." ~Karen from For What it's Worth
"Sometimes you just need a happy, sweet, love story. I got exactly that with What A Boy Wants. It is now my go to read when I need a laugh and a reminder of why I love to read." ~Autumn from The Autumn Review
"Thank the writer heavens - this is *exactly* how a male mind would think (well at least half of the teenage male population). What he said, how he reacted, what he thought etc. just screamed: "Teenage boy! Teenage boy!" I adored this aspect of What A Boy Wants." ~The Bookworm is Here
"Boy POV can be tricky when written by a woman. First, Nyrae Dawn is not a guy. Second, she’s not a teenager. Third, none of that really matters because in my opinion she nailed it. Bastian’s voice is so clear and so distinct it instantly transported me back to high school, where 90% of my friends were guys. Bastian reminded me of them 100%…" ~Allie B Books
