Onyx Out Loud: Change Attitudes from the Beginning for a Generation which Accepts Unique Differences

The Onyx Out Loud mission is to teach and encourage acceptance to children. My belief is that if children are introduced to people, with “unique” differences, the initial shock will not be there when they are pre-teens and teenagers. If the shock and awareness is eliminated, at that “intense” age, then bullying will be eliminated. Perhaps the children reading the Onyx Out Loud series will be the first generation to accept all people with open arms, hearts, and minds.

5 Stars!!!!

"I really enjoyed reading this story and have to say that this is an ugly cry book! Oh the tears that I had but you feel every emotion. There are so many raw emotions that will run in this book and you will feel them as if it was real, this book just feels so real as if it was someone's life. This book will touch your heart and stay there. It's such a          heartfelt book and I believe the author did an amazing job writing this story.

Rachel finally found love when she didn't think she ever would find someone. She meets Brooks and it was instant love, someone she could spend the rest of her life with. Everything she dreamed and prayed for was coming true until one night it was all taken away from her. Brooks was taken away and she was left with nothing except a gift that she would take care of for the rest of her life. Rachel moves forward with her life and then more tragedy comes at her and she doesn't understand why. Rachel has the support from her family & friends and they won't let her down nor have her give up. With having the support, Rachel is able to continue praying and be hopeful that things will turn out for the better.

So what do you do when you think everything you have worked for, prayed for and hold onto has a chance to be taken away? For Rachel, she prays and goes back to the one person she always had a connection too and hopes that he will be able to help her. She still feels Brooks and now she needs his help more than ever. This book had me thinking of "She Talks To Angels" song while reading through and it goes with the book too.

Rachel never expects to ever have someone replace Brooks. She thought that she would be lonely for the rest of her life until she meets Marcus. Marcus is so different from Brooks but in a good way and when she has him by her side as well, she knows that she must not give up hope.

This book is so dang amazing. I don't think 5 stars does it justice as it needs more than that. If you don't mind feeling raw emotions and having tissues, you won't regret reading this story. This is on my favorites list for this year."

I am blown away by this 5 Star review posted on Amazon from a young lady about to be 18 years old. I am thrilled to know my writing is touching and impacting someone's life in a positive way.

"The Strength Of Love is one book that isn’t simply defined by the words written about it. While reading this story, I found myself feeling things I didn’t know possible. This story is one of faith, above all else. Even when faced with the toughest situations that life has to offer, this book prevails. As a young woman about to enter the world on my own, this book shows me the true value of strength. Life isn’t all roses and happy times; we are reminded that tough times are inevitable. But it is how we face those tough times that define us, and this book proved that in spades. As a fellow writer, I couldn’t help but appreciate the intricate writing style that Ms. Ross exhibited. She not only helped me visualize each scene, she took me on a detailed adventure throughout the entire book. This book has my highest praises, as well as Ms. Ross. If you’re looking for a good cry, this book is for you, and I promise, you will feel every single sentence as though it’s your own story to be unfolded. My life was forever changed by this book."

Thank you, Stephanie!

A 5 star review posted on Amazon for "The Strength of Love."

"First I got this book on netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have never read anything by this author I chose it because I liked the book description. This is not a fairy tale romance. This to me was a fiction story of things that happen in real life and real relationships. You have to fight for the love of your kids and relationships and that is what this story is about. You will laugh, cry and feel many more emotions while reading. The biggest one you feel is hope. Thank you for letting me read about Rachel and Brooks. True inspirational read." Meredith

"I felt like I was "watching" Lisa and Lance's life and relationship unfold, change and grow over the days, weeks and months as they, together and alone, redefined their roles and their new reality...and I loved that the passion sizzled on!! I could not put the book down. The end of "Turbulent Passion" (Book 1) had me at the edge of my seat and "Burning Desire" (Book 2) has done the same! Hurry and publish "Crosswind" G.L.Ross!! I can't wait!! xoxo" Jennifer B

"This is the second book in the series, and although I didn't read the first book the author did an excellent work in helping you to get a clear picture of what happened before. The book continues with Lisa and Lance - two people who met on the airport and had an enticing love affair in book 1. Their passionate connection was the driving force in their life and it made this book a winner. Once again they had to rediscover one another. And what a discovery it was, filled with emotions to make this story very believable. The fact that it ended in a cliffhanger had me in frustrated want for more.

Lance's character was strong: at times he was adorable, his libido definitely ruling him when it came to Lisa. He was tested in more ways than one to get his goddess back, and never consider of running away. He kept at it even if it gave him blue balls. smile.

The new Lisa had some drama she had to work through, her emotional state the focus of this book - I don't want to give away to much, since that would be a spoiler, and we don't want that. ;)

But I had to agree with Lance: Lisa had much more spunk, she was wild and adventurous, strong and capable to do the things she had to do. A fighter, that never backed down from anything.

Really a great book, with enough drama, suspense, action and wild reckless, passion filled sex into the mix. A book I thoroughly enjoyed." Lynelle
