Cora Cabot’s life is falling apart. So when her Australian friend announces she’s secured an internship in the States, Cora has a brilliant idea: house swap! Small-town Australia sounds like the perfect getaway. Only, when she gets there, the house isn’t empty. Turns out her friend’s hot Australian brother is staying there, too—and he doesn’t look happy to see her.

The last thing Trent Walters needs is a roommate for the summer. Especially an American who immediately floods the house and single-handedly destroys the family project his sister created for their parents’ anniversary. Now, not only does Cora insist on helping fix the house, he needs her help re-creating the family scrapbook. And glitter is not his forte.

But between late nights cooking, pints at the local pub, and competitive matches of cricket on the beach, Cora starts to break through Trent’s defenses. Too bad Cora made a promise to return to working with her father at the end of the summer—a promise she can’t break—because this holiday is starting to feel like one she never wants to end.


An utterly delightful meet-cute lays the foundation for love in our second visit to Patterson’s Bluff! With an adorable house-swap foundation Stefanie London entices her reader into Cora and Trent’s story HER AUSSIE HOLIDAY and it’s sure to please. Both characters are attention grabbing and have colorful back stories to hold our attention as their daily snark turns into foreplay that warms up the Australian summer more than ever!

Cora Cabot is adorably sweet and pretty irresistible. She’s a wanna-be novelist who listens too much to those around her instead of to her own heart, but being a people pleaser is all she’s ever known. She may be tempted by all that Australia is bringing to her otherwise boring life, but she knows in a month’s time she’ll be back in New York hard at work for her father.

Trent Walters is a doll. He’s gorgeous, he’s hard-working and he adores his family. What we don’t know is what the secret is that’s controlling the decisions he makes day in and day out. He’s got the world at his fingertips, but chooses to put it on hold time and again.

I highly recommend this story as well as the earlier book in the series to anyone who loves a romance filled with fun characters, sexy connections and so much heart you can’t help but smile throughout. I’m anticipating my return trip already!

My teammates think she's married. I think it's more than that.

Other than her name, I don't know anything about her, but I can't get enough of her. She's my obsession, my world, my everything. If only she would let me in, tell me why she's terrified, why she stays in the shadows, why she can't be seen in public.

Then, as quickly as she came into my life, she disappears.


As the daughter of a powerful politician, I was my boyfriend's perfect alibi until I wasn't. My life is in danger, and I have no choice but to disappear.

I met Kaden in a bar, and the attraction was instant. We can't keep our hands off each other, but I'm careful not to tell him too much. He can't know who I am or why I'm running. My safety—and his—depends on it. Then my ex's conviction is overturned, he's out of prison, and witnesses are dying. I have to run again and leave behind the one man I'll never forget.

But fate has a way of interfering, and this time, leaving isn't so easy.


Her secrets have turned into a danger no one saw coming! With the third book in The Scoring Series Jami Davenport takes us back into the heart of her Seattle Sockeyes hockey world to hunt down true love. The premise of the story starts out exciting, but sadly the follow through falls flat when there was so much potential there to make it keep us on our toes. The story is filled with members of the Sockeyes, but there’s no hockey practice or play whatsoever in the story line, so even the sports aspect was disappointing. It held my attention and kept me reading, but I wanted more.

Kaden is a sweet character. He has the rep of being a player, but since the night he met Lanie he’s been all in and when she disappears without a word, he’s heartbroken. He sets out to find her to make sure she’s okay. I enjoyed the emotion he brought to the story.

Delaney had a set-up to bring a lot of tension to the story line but there was no follow through with the suspense. Her about face towards the end was quite the let down, but their eventual HEA was sweet.

I’m looking forward to Steele’s story after getting to know him a little more in this book.

Isaak “Ice” Koval is on a club mission when he sees a woman who stops him dead in his tracks. Soleil is a sweet, sexy, girl-next-door type. She’s an innocent who should be nowhere near the rough-and-ready world of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club. But Ice knows Soleil belongs with him—and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.

After a life of drifting from one thing to the next, Soleil Brodeur is determined to take control of her life. When her breakup with her manipulative fiancé turns ugly, Soleil searches out the stranger who offered her a lifeline and ends up in a Las Vegas biker bar where she meets a gorgeous, dangerous man straight out of her most secret fantasies.

High on adrenaline, she finds herself falling faster than she thought possible. But Soleil knows little about the territory she’s stumbled into, and even less about what it really means to be Ice’s woman.…


An electrifying opposites attract story is sure to please Torpedo Ink fans! With the third book in the series Christine Feehan wraps a damsel in distress around Ice’s heart faster than he can turn around and it’s swoon worthy!

Isaak “Ice” Koval is a stone cold character who is loyal to his family and his club … he never expected to actually feel again, but when this gorgeous woman steps into his sights in a rough and rowdy biker bar, he is a goner. Watching him be captivated is so rewarding.

Soleil Brodeur is sweet and innocent and has no clue what type of life she’s walking into when she stumbles into Ice’s clutches, but she’s so happy being there that she can’t find enough concern to worry too much about it.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a tight knit MC y that is always filled with strife and drama, but equally heart warming in a rough and tumble type of way. I’m so looking forward to more in the series!
