** Book Review ** THE BILLIONAIRE BACHELOR by Jessica Lemmon

The Billionaire Bachelor


Great first book of a new series by Jessica Lemmon!  I was hooked quickly, and really enjoyed getting to watch Reese and Merina fall hard when they least expected it.  The characters were great, the plot was fun, and the chemistry was off the charts!  Looking forward to seeing the other Crane brothers in the rest of the series.

Reese Crane is a billionaire playboy who doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him, but when his perceived reputation stands in the way of getting his legacy handed down to him, he won’t stand for it!

Merina Van Heusen can’t believe her parents have lost the boutique hotel that she adores!  She will do anything to get it back, even marry that ridiculously arrogant billionaire for 6 months!

Reese needs Merina to help him become dignified and settled in the board’s eyes, and he will use anything in his power to get his way.  They agree to a temporary marriage with the reason behind it remaining secret.  Once he gets his job, they will divorce and she will get her hotel.  Only neither of them take into consideration that they might actually fall for each other during all of their pretending!

** Blog Tour / Book Review ** INTO THE FIRE by Meredith Wild

4 1/2 STARS!

Book 2 in The Bridge series really got under my skin!  I liked Cam’s story in the first book, but I just had trouble connecting with Maya.  In this book, it was totally different.  Vanessa was a joy to let in and I really enjoyed watching her find the strength to take a chance on Darren!  I’m not a huge fan of uppity Bridge sibling Olivia, but I hope to see a hunky man make her find that heart inside her chest in the final book in the series, coming later this year!

Hunky firefighter Darren Bridge loves life!  He loves his job, and in his down time, he loves hooking up with the flavor of the night, often someone he’s training at his brother’s gym!  He’s out at a bar with his buddy Ian one night and runs into Vanessa.  He had spent an evening with her months ago when they were out with Cam & Maya, but Cam made him promise not to put the moves on her, so the night ended innocently.  He hasn’t forgotten her, and now that she’s in front of him again, he can’t take his eyes off of her!

Vanessa Hawkins works super hard and when she finally gets to leave the office, she’s ready to have a good time!  She can’t deny the sparks that fly when she runs into Darren again, but it’s not long before he’s got another chick hanging onto his every word, so she heads out.  She’s maid-of-honor at her BFF Maya’s destination wedding to Cam, so she’s ready to hit the road for a much needed break!

Darren uses his charm to finagle some time with Vanessa and convinces her to give him a chance while they are on the island.  When they return to real life, will they be able to over come the obstacles from both of their lives to actually enjoy a relationship together?

The Bridge Series follows Cameron, Darren, and Olivia Bridge, three siblings living in New York City. Desperate to break away from the crushing expectations of their wealthy and privileged and equally broken family, they carve out a new path together. But can they find real love along the way?


Each book follows a different sibling’s journey and can be read as a standalone.



Darren Bridge is living a bachelor’s dream. When he’s not running into burning buildings with his crew, he’s training the flavor of the week at his brother’s gym. Few women have ever been off limits…until Vanessa. Smart, beautiful, and legs for days, she’s unlike anyone he’s ever met. Too bad he’s sworn to leave her alone.

Overworked with no end in sight, Vanessa Hawkins hasn’t had a vacation in nearly two years. When Cameron and Maya’s destination wedding takes her out of the office for a much-needed break, she finds herself struggling to resist her attraction to the best man. Darren is dangerously good-looking with enough charm to make any hot-blooded woman want to drop her panties and enjoy the ride, no matter how long it lasts.

When they return to the city, Darren realizes the single life has lost its glimmer. But with everything else on her plate, Vanessa doesn’t have room in her life for a man, let alone a player. Can Darren find his way into her heart and convince her that he’s worth the risk?
