Publisher's Summary

Love struck me at the early age of five. The boy turned into a man, and I fell even deeper. Guy Webb had no idea my fragile heart belonged to him for so many years. He was too busy being my brother’s best friend and a star on the football field. He was my daydream and consumed every single thought, but he was always one step from my reach.

Beartooth Ranch was our home. The rich ranch land raised us, fostered our laughs and losses, and even gained a new family member when Guy moved in for his sophomore year of high school. 

I hid my love for years. But now he’s back. Guy Webb returned a broken soldier after serving his country all over the atlas. And now it’s my job to help him heal.

My family lost everything with his return, and I can only hope I survive it.

Heartbreakingly sweet

Warning: this book will make you ugly cry! It is so beautiful and so touching but has parts that will bring you to your knees. Being able to see the main couple and their family go full circle was absolutely amazing!

The narration was fantastic! The way Lacy brought out all of the emotions in her voice was amazing! I'm fairly certain hearing the crying in her voice made me cry!

Warm country romance

This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I really loved the writers style. The story is about family, loss and true love that never dies and carries on in each generation. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but if you like stories that really touch your emotions, you will love this audiobook. Narration was well done.

This book destroyed me

Oh my. I don’t think I’ve cried this much through a book ever! The emotion in this book is amazing. I can’t get over the talent of Heidi. This book has changed me forever and I’m thankful for it. You only find a gem like this occasionally, I will listen over and over again. Thank you Heidi, also Lacy and Jeremy who brought these amazing characters to life. I highly recommend this book.

5 Emotional Stars!

Ugh, this book!! I really really loved it!! Such real and raw characters and their journey was full of loss, sadness, hope and forgiveness! I just adored it!

The narrators were fantastic. Really loved Lacy Laurel! Jeremy York has a small part he narrates but was superb as well. The pace, tone, and pitch were on point. The H and h had huge hearts that were made for one another. I loved how they developed their feelings and that Guy especially didn’t play any emotional games. They had quite a few challenges to overcome and the journey was more than worth it. This book just really breaks your heart and puts it back together in a beautiful way!

epic love told beautifully

Royal Atlas has all the boxes checked.
Brother's Best Friend
Childhood history
tragic loss
A healing love
generations of love

I'm trying not to cry while I type this but Royal Atlas is a beautifully written story. It had heartache and joy. HJ Bellus makes you FEEL it. The narrators make you a part of it. This story will envelop you in its words and take you through its pages without you even realizing you've been adopted by the ranch. Just be prepared when it's over for the loss you feel....reality just isn't the same with Amos, Guy, Grandpa, Molly, and company.

I will be bringing on the rest of this amazing series.

Royal Atlas

I have come across very few stories that make me cry but this is one of them. The story of their love is heart warming and heartbreaking at the same time. I was hooked into the story from the beginning.

Beautiful, sad, amazing, real life

I’ve never been so happy listening to a book one minute and then crying like a baby the next. This book had my emotions all over the place and in some ways is very much like my life. I loved it from start to finish and am so glad I found it. I will be listening to it again. Just be prepared and have tissues handy.

"Sweet, Emotional Love Story "

This was such a beautifully emotional story. I laughed and cried throughout this. I loved this story from HJ Bellus. It was beautiful to see the couples and their families story go in full circle, so amazing.

The brilliant narrator team of Lacy Laurel and Jeremy York brought this book to life so beautifully.

Tissues will be needed, especially at the end

Timeless love story

This is a beautiful story of lifelong love with no games between the main characters. I laughed and cried and fell in love with the Hero. Jeremy York does a fantastic 5⭐️ job on the narration of Guy, who is a new favorite book boyfriend. I loved the heroine, Molly, too. But Lacy Laurel’s narration diminishes the listening experience for me somewhat because she slurs consonants and pronounces common words in a dialect that takes me out of the story. This is my second book narrated by her, and I had similar issues with both, so it may just be me. The story is so wonderful, I’d hate for anyone to skip it on this count alone, but maybe for me it would have been better reading it myself than listening.

My Thoughts on Royal Atlas

For a first book by this author for me, I must say it was really good.

The storyline, characters, the romance... It was all good.

It's a really emotional story. Some moments a little too much so for me. I'm conflicted as I write this review because while I know it was well written, and I can see why people love this author's work so much, I personally was a little put off by the ending. I'll just say it was a little reminiscent of an extremely popular story that had a beginning that made me sad, a middle that was really good, but an ending that had me vowing to never watch or read it again. And I haven't. Because every time I think about the ending, it completely puts me off.

So while I feel like I loved Molly and Guy, there was just a little too much realism in the end of their story that I don't particularly enjoy in my romance.

The narrators however did a fantastic job. I don't know what it is about Lacy Laurel's voice, but I feel like she pulls off country and cowgirl so well. I'm also really impressed with her voice for the male parts. She was able to give them a good distinction. But I really liked her voice for the leading man. Jeremy York had a gentle quality to his narration on this story that I think paired well with Guy.

Overall the narration was perfection, and the story was good. It's just not one that could be a repeat for me.

What a beautiful story!

Its a story of young love, best friends, family, war, heartache, healing and love. So many emotions listening to Royal Atlas. The location: a ranch. The chracters are all so great and Molly and Guy's love is epic and the author shows us years after they get together, their won kids. It's really beautiful to listen to... I ugly cried at the end.

More of a family story than a romance.

Sweet story which spans the entire life of the main characters and some secondary characters from childhood to senior years.
