All Winnie Braddock wants is a quiet place to be alone and time to heal her battered heart. But the refuge she'd hoped for in her family's summer cottage is destroyed when she gets there to find Holden Hendricks literally camped out in the driveway. He made her life hell when they were kids, and despite what he says, it doesn't look like much has changed. She doesn't care if her brother hired Holden to renovate the house this winter; she wants him gone.

You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. Holden knows that hockey saying all too well. After all, he could have gone pro if he hadn't messed up so much as a kid. But now he's desperate to prove he's changed for the better, especially to Winnie Braddock. As the two work together to fix the cottage piece by piece, they realize that perhaps they can give each other the new beginning they've both been waiting for-if they're just willing to take the shot.


A heartfelt story! With the next book in the San Francisco Thunder series, we get the final Braddock sibling’s story. We met Winnie in her hockey playing brother Jude’s story, then saw more of her in both of her sister’s books as they hooked up with the men of the Thunder. This was a very emotion filled read, and flowed well, but there were a couple of aspects missing for me. Number one, it’s really no longer a hockey romance … and number two, considering the main plot of the story, I felt the family should have been brought in more so we could have shared the journey of healing with everyone that we got to know in the series instead of just Winnie. Overall a solid read, but it will resonate with the reader more if they have read the entire series and know the background.

Winnie Braddock just wants to be left alone to nurse her battered heart, but she doesn’t seem to have that luxury. She has an overbearing family who insinuate themselves into everything, and just when she thinks she’s pulled one over on them to have some alone time, she’s stuck dealing with the guy who tormented her as a teen!

Holden Hendricks is grateful for the job Jude gave him renovating the Braddock’s vacation home in Maine. He’s done plenty of growing up over the years and wishes he could find a way to prove to people that he’s no longer that snot nosed kid who wreaked havoc on everyone he encountered. Discovering he’s going to be in close proximity to Winnie for a few weeks just might be a step in the right direction considering she holds a huge grudge … but time and proximity seem to be heating up more than anger between the two of them!

Can he teach her survival skills—

without endangering his heart?

When Sabrina Bell taps Leith Jordan for a crash course in conquering the great Alaskan outdoors, he figures he’s on safe ground. They’re polar opposites and his spectacular home state’s just a pit stop for the hotshot fashionista. So no one’s more surprised than Leith when he starts falling for her. Now he’s a man with a plan: get Sabrina to fall in love with Alaska…and, hopefully, with him.


Beth Carpenter’s descriptively toned voice makes us feel like we’re right there in picturesque Alaska in the latest from her Northern Lights series! The gorgeous setting is divine, the characters nab our attention quickly and their sweet love story warms soul throughout. Lots of heart, riddled with emotion and just an overall fun read. A nice addition to this wonderful series!

Sabrina Bell only plans to be in Alaska for a short time, but she’s determined to learn her way around the outdoors in order to win over her temporary employer. Meeting Leith turns out to be just what she needed because he’s a pro at all things Alaska.

Leith Jordan teaches survival skills for a living, but when he sees this misfit prima donna, he doesn’t think there’s a chance she’ll be able to pull her own weight against the wilderness. To his surprise, she takes to the outdoors quickly and her sweet nature has him falling for her in no time. Only trouble is … she’s not sticking around!

I've had a crush on Stefanie, my best friend's older sister, since I was fifteen. As a geeky gamer with a bad case of acne, she was totally out of my league. But I'm all grown up now, with a medical degree and an in-depth knowledge of female anatomy I'm not afraid to use. When we cross paths again I finally get my chance to live out a few teenage fantasies and prove I can be her guy. I just have to convince Stef to take a chance.

As a resident nurse,I've had enough of arrogant doctors to last me a lifetime. I'm not looking for another. I'm especially not looking to hook up with my kid brother's bestie—ten years my junior—even if he has morphed into a walking, talking, wet dream. If only he wasn't sleeping in my spare bed for three weeks and making it very clear he wants to be in my bed instead. Not going to happen. I don't do casual anymore. No matter how much I want to open my legs for the DILF.


Delightfully H-O-T! By far the steamiest Amy Andrews book I’ve ever read, and simply yummy! Fast paced, really fun characters and lots of steam. There’s not a huge plot behind their fun in the sack, but if you’re simply looking for a quick dash of steamy lust with a guaranteed happily ever after, you’re going to love this book!

Stefanie Leonard doesn’t know what she was thinking when she let her kid brother talk her into letting his BFF stay in her spare room for a few weeks. He’s a newly minted doctor at the hospital where she works as a nurse, and after a bad experience with one arrogant doctor ex, she’s looking to steer clear of the species all together on a personal level. Too bad he’s turned into such a hottie and he’s all she can think about!

Owen Chandler might be a decade younger than Stef, but he’s been secretly in love with her since the summer he met her as a teen. This is the only opportunity he’s ever going to get to make her see him as something other than her little bro’s friend, so he’s not going to waste a minute of the time he’s been blessed with. Mega flirting and turning on the sex appeal, here I come!

He’s hoping to bury the past. She’s ready to settle the score.

The Sterling Ranch’s season opening isn’t going so smoothly. With the ranch’s lodge full of guests and a Montana blizzard threatening, Will Sterling needs help—and he needs it fast.
