In this we meet Wyatt & Scarlett. Straight away in chapter one were clued into what kind of demons are chasing Wyatt. A fatal accident has left him reeling from the guilt he has to carry daily on his shoulders that he couldn't do more. Whilst he’s on suspended leave from the force he takes a trip to Ocean’s Isle for a few days to clear his head and to figure out what he's doing with this life. He only really joined the police force so that his parents would be proud of him, he's always struggled trying to measure up to his older brother Aiden. It’s here that he encounters his gorgeous neighbour Scarlett. The attraction between these two is INSTANT, their chemistry SIZZLES off the pages. She can’t wait to get her hooks into him for just one night, he doesn’t do commitments, he’s a love them and leave them kind of guy. So one night is all they give of themselves. Neither expected to see the other again. One night was all they gave themselves. The last thing they expected was to be working in the same precinct, Scarlett is the new psychologist where she has to council Wyatt over a case where he lost his temper. Going into this I didn’t know what to expect, though I was hooked as soon as I started it I didn’t expect the journey to be such an emotional one, the author had me eating out of the palm of her hand, I love seeing this side of her, this ticked all my boxes. I swooned, I had tears, I connected with these characters, I loved their journey. So much guilty heartache that had light at the end of the tunnel. These two were perfection. Twenty-nine year old Wyatt was nothing like I expected he'd be, being the jokester this book delved deeper into his soul and we saw the real softer side emerge, he wore his emotions on his sleeve and he wasn't afraid to show them and I loved seeing this side of him.

And Scarlett is not your typical heroine and believe me this woman has it all going on. I cannot explain how much I loved this book. Scarlett first meets Wyatt when she is visiting her beach home and thinks that what they shared was nothing but a one night stand that is until fate steps in on the day she starts a new job as [psychiatrist at the police station and her first client is the man she shared an incredible night with. It’s clear from the outset that these two characters have explosive chemistry and it’s not long before the lines between professional and personal are blurred beyond recognition. But when it becomes clear that there is more going on with Wyatt than she can deal with can she be his lighthouse in the storm that he is entering or are they doomed to fail? Wyatt has always been the happy go lucky, player in the pack, but he is harbouring secrets that no one would ever expect. The weekend he meets Scarlett he is escaping from his thoughts, after witnessing a horrific scene where he failed to save someone his life has descended into darkness that he is fighting his way through daily. When Scarlett starts work at the police precinct and he is ordered to see the onsite psychartrist he finds himself opening up to her in way that he wasn’t sure he ever could. His feelings grow for her but things aren’t what he thinks they are in his life and he is locked in a nightmare he fears he will never escape. This was a heart-warming story of love and acceptance and deals with depression and mental illness in a way that made sense to me. This is not a story for the faint hearted and I am serious when I say that I cried a lot. Highly recommended read that I know will read again. If I could give this book more than 5* I really would.

    Wyatt is the funny guy, the player, the sweet guy, the good friend, the one who makes you laugh. It is those types who hide their truth and Wyatt is no different.

Haunted by his actions, he will need her and his family to help him and in doing so maybe give them a chance at a HEA. I did not see the twist of what was bothering Wyatt coming AT ALL!!! I liked the way it was done. I would of loved more of a connection between Scarlett and Wyatt, to me they felt more like friends than lovers. Really loving this series

    Amazing heroine. Strong and kind woman. Not a typical CR set-up, damsel in distress wasn't present in it, thanks God! The story is much deeper than I expected. It's more like 4.5 stars, but after endless boring stories with cliche tropes, this one was like a breath of fresh air 😀, and I always want to encourage authors to write more decent heroes and strong heroines. 5 stars!!!! 😍

    Amber- Leave Me Alone I’m Reading

    This is such a heart-wrenching read. Wyatt is just so... so much more than I expected him to be! I loved him and all of his brokenness. Scarlett is such a strong and confident heroine and I love her soooo much. All of the Souhtern Heroes books are amazing! They are all so emotional. I think I shed tears during each one. They’re all beautiful and unique stories and I definitely recommend them.

    Wyatt’s life has changed since one night and now lives with it daily. This book is intense and heartbreaking but real. I love Wyatt’s personality and strength he doesn’t even realize he has. This book needs a warning must have tissues while reading! You never know what someone is going through. This book shows us how no matter what we all need that one person to open up too. 5/5 stars

    Finally, Wyatt's story. I am loving this series and couldn't wait for Wyatt. He's the Joker, the lovable guy, he's made me laugh in the previous book but in All the wasted time you see the sadness and turmoil behind the joker mask of Wyatt. Wyatt's story begins when he witnesses an accident, the car explodes and he fails to save someone, Wyatt blames himself for not being able to save her.

Wyatt's story begins when he witnesses an accident, the car explodes and he fails to save someone, Wyatt blames himself for not being able to save her. Wyatt and Scarlett meet at a beach side home when he takes himself away for a few days before going back to work as a police officer. Scarlett is also on a break before she starts her new job. What was supposed to be a one night stand turns into more when fate steps in they reunite. Scarlett starts her new job as a Psychiatrist at Wyatt's precinct. A heartwarming story that also touches on the subject of mental health , family love and support. An enjoyable read but I would have liked more chemistry between Wyatt and Scarlett, I thought the getting to know you phase, the flirting and the foreplay normally in a new relationship was amiss and it jumped into serious to quickly. A recommended series that I am thoroughly enjoying from Michelle Heard. I love the brotherly love between the guys and the family feel the characters bring with their support for each other. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Each book can be read as a standalone. Told in first person dual pov. Leads to hea.

    Oh wow... From the start Wyatt was one of my favourite characters. But you had to know that underneath all that happy go lucky character was someone that was hiding something. And Wyatt oh man, he was such a good, happy person but inside he was the most saddest person ever. Scarlett was so right person for him. I loved it. She was exactly the type of person to deal with all his hurt. I think like a lot of reviews I'm so scared of saying something that will give it away, lol. All I can say is that Oh wow...

I read the blurb and man a South African Bad girl, Whoop Whoop!!! can't wait lady!

You knew he had a story to tell and boy it is one to pull at your heart strings. He made me tear up and I just wish I had a little more time with him. Wyatt is trying to just live his best life. He is on the force with his whole family and the carefree always single guy of the group. When he goes beyond his duties during his last case, he is placed on a two month leave. Not to long after that an accident he was involved in has left him with some serious guilt and it’s playing with his mind. He decides maybe soaking up some sun at the family beach house will get him in the right headspace to head back. He doesn’t expect to meet Scarlett the girl who lured him into her bed then ran. When he heads back to work, he doesn’t expect his new psychiatrist is the one and only Scarlett. With mounting guilt and trying to maintain a normal appearance his mental stability is about to snap. Scarlet is setting off to make a new life for herself as the Lyman Police Departments new psychiatrist. The first case to come across her desk is Wyatt Holden and she is unsure what to do. Upon meeting him in a more formal setting she starts to notice some things are off about him. How he’s always sneaking off to answer phone calls and injuries he can’t explain. They decide to embark on a relationship but when Wyatt finally reaches a breaking point, she is forced to do something most girlfriends aren’t expecting to do so early on. Now she just wants to help this amazing man with the big heart get better and get a new grip on life. I love these two. They were equally matched and they both brought something to the table. I liked how Scarlett didn’t give up and run she saw Wyatt and knew he was the one. I felt so bad for Wyatt and his journey. It broke my heart. I would say this book is everything. It’s a long look at mental illness and love. Wyatt and Scarlett heat up the screen of your kindle one minute then have you happy sighing the next. They are the epitome of what true love is. We also get to see our boys from past books and another series as well. Kudos to Michelle Heard breathing new life into a much loved story.

And now he has to see her on a professional level. What's he to do now?

Their chemistry is intense and the feels are deep with this book. Every emotion is felt- hurt, fear, , trust, hope,pain, passion, and love comes across at every turn. Ms. Heard wrote such a beautiful story and its sad this is the end of the series but what a great way to end it. Amazing!!! My Rating: 4.8 stars ******

    "He's the kind of hot that burns you until you're nothing but ashes." I had really high hopes for this book, because I loved Wyatt in the books before and he's such an intriguing character. Sadly this book didn't really work for me. His story has so much potential, yet I have the feeling this book scratched only the surface of what it could have been.

The warning at the beginning, that the book was previously published as "Wyatt" and has been edited and rewritten should have been enough to back down my high hopes . Because I felt it everywhere. Almost everything felt rushed and kind of half-baked. I wished for more depth in so many parts of the book. Also I had trouble with the whole time lapse and I got confused in between. I guess all this lead to the fact that I felt far from really connecting with the characters even though I adored both at the same time. However, IMO both characters didn't get their development to their full potential. They are both equally great and together even better but something is missing. I'm truly sorry I couldn't love this book as much as I expected I would. "Love isn't a feeling. It's helping each other through life while dreaming of a future together." All The Wasted Time is an emotional and sad, yet beautiful story with a broken hero and a strong heroine who helps him finding back his way to life.

    I'm lost for words. I wasn't expecting what I got from this story. Sometimes it was painful to read. Wyatt pain was killing me. And then when you are shown how much that pain was killing him.... Yeah, that was just.... I'm afraid to even thing what would had happened if not for Scarlett. She was a blessing sent to Wyatt. I loved them together.

    Wasted Time. Loved it! Real. Raw and emotional. Definitely wasn’t expecting that little twist but man was it good. I loved both characters. Wyatt was such a sweet broken man and she was tough as hell. It was great still hearing from all the other characters as well. Can’t wait for the next book. I’m hoping it’s Zac and Morgan.

Such a 'bedazzling' surprise. *I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review* Reading Order of Southern Heroes Series: Each book can be read as a stand-alone. The Ocean Between Us The Girl In The Closet The Lies We Tell Ourselves All The Wasted Time We Were Lost The Fire Between Us

    As a reader I think you're always looking for and I quote "the one"and by the one I mean the one that captures your attention and grabs you emotionally. The one that takes you on an emotional journey. The one where the combination of fear, pain, hurt, anguish, trust, hope and love is felt at every turn. Guys I found the one!

All The Wasted time has to be by far one of the best reads that I've ever had the privilege of reading. It completely captured my heart and soul. It's a rarity to find a novel that touches on such a subject but Michelle Heard did with All The Wasted Time and quite frankly executed it perfectly. A beautifully written novel exploring the reality of mental illness. A heartbreaking novel exploring the effects of a debilitating illness and the traumatic affects is has on so many. A breathtaking novel that explores the depths of sacrifice that people will go through to help another. Wyatt, your story will stay with me always. You will forever hold a piece of my heart. A definite 5 star read.

    All The Wasted Time by Michelle Heard is book four in her Southern Heroes Series. The book was previously published as Wyatt- now new edited and rewritten. The previous books are The Ocean Between Us - Aiden; The Girl In The Closet - Cole; The Lies We Tell Ourselves - Alec.

The book was previously published as Wyatt- now new edited and rewritten. The previous books are The Ocean Between Us - Aiden; The Girl In The Closet - Cole; The Lies We Tell Ourselves - Alec. There are some cross-overs and for best reading experience I recommend to read the books in order. Wyatt Holden is the youngest sibling and the tender heartest. He works like most of his family at the force, is an successful Detective, but gets eaten by his job. A job that costs him dearly. Scarlett is the precinct's new psychologist- and a former ons of Wyatt. Awkward. Soon she realises he deals with a grave condition and needs help. He claws his way back into a healthy-ish life with the help of his friends and family. Reading Wyatt's story hurt, it hurt a lot and at the same time I loved his story. I give 4,5 stars. All The Wasted Time is a heart wrenching, gutting read and deals with sensitive subjects that may cause triggers.

    Wyatt isn't your typical Alpha Male Hero. He's not the in your face type. Wyatt is the joker. The one who makes you laugh. The little brother. He's also a man haunted. Scarlett is NOT the southern bell you might associate with that name. She isn't looking for a hero to rescue her. She might be the one doing the rescuing. What I loved most about this book, besides those two facts, is that Michelle has taken a somewhat broken man, and made him human. He has emotions and feelings.

What I loved most about this book, besides those two facts, is that Michelle has taken a somewhat broken man, and made him human. He has emotions and feelings. He's not afraid to cry. He's not afraid to show his soul. No matter how damaged that might be. She's also made Scarlett not only NOT damsel in distress but she's also made her caring and warm. The type of person you want on your side. The one you want to tell all of your problems too. Wyatt and Scarlett may not be your typical hero and heroine, but they ARE the kind of fictional people I'd like to know.

Plus, who can love the Holden family any more than me? They're amazing! The immediate sexual attraction between Scarlett and Wyatt turns into something so much more. More than either of them ever expected but needed. A story of love, loss and finding your way back from the brink. LOVE this series and Wyatt has captured my heart for sure!
