She knows what’s best for everyone but herself…

With a past like hers, Jessica Clayton feels safer in a life spent on the road. She’s made a career out of helping others downsize—because she’s learned the hard way that the less “stuff,” the better, a policy she applies equally to her relationships. But a new client is taking Jess back to Cape Sanctuary, a town she once called home…and that her little sister, Rachel, still does. The years apart haven’t made a dent in the guilt Jess still carries after a handgun took the lives of both their parents and changed everything between them.

While Jess couldn’t wait to put the miles between her and Cape Sanctuary, Rachel put down roots, content for the world—and her sister—to think she has a picture-perfect life. But with the demands of her youngest child’s disability, Rachel’s marriage has begun to fray at the seams. She needs her sister now more than ever, yet she’s learned from painful experience that Jessica doesn’t do family, and she shouldn’t count on her now.

Against her judgment, Jess finds herself becoming attached—to her sister and her family, even to her client’s interfering son, Nate—and it’s time to put everything on the line. Does she continue running from her painful past, or stay put and make room for the love and joy that come along with it?


RaeAnne Thayne always makes us feel like we are right there in the middle of the family! In her upcoming release THE PATH TO SUNSHINE COVE, she delves into the strained connection between two adult sisters who were torn apart by tragedy as teens and who are stumbling into a reconnection just when things seem to be falling down around one of their heads. There were a couple of items from the past that weren’t fleshed out and addressed fully, but overall it was a phenomenal story with wonderful characters, intense storylines and so many feel good moments.

Jess and Rachel are both strong, determined women who went about finding their happiness in totally different ways. Jess feels the hurt of the past with a different bite than Rachel does, and Rachel feels like Jess’s way of coping is a dig at her. Watching them work to reconnect is heartwarming.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a bit of family drama mixed with a whole lot of heart and a side of romance or two.

Swedish-born hockey player Tore Brekken thought he’d be a bachelor for life. The parties, the women, the lavish vacations— and the Ferrari. He had everything he could ever want, but his extreme lifestyle has been taking a toll. As much as he hated to admit it, he needed to settle down. He just didn’t expect to go from seriously single to daddy material overnight.

Single mom Margot Delgado’s life revolves around her four-year-old daughter Gracie. Tired of being let down, she doesn’t have time to waste dating men she can’t count on. Especially some hotshot hockey player with a playboy reputation as big as his... bank account.

But when the annual Fantasy Night rolls around, Margot decides to let her hair down— and for once she isn’t just someone’s mom, but someone’s wildest fantasy. From the first taste she knows she could get drunk on the way Tore makes her feel, and one night with him will never be enough.

When reality comes crashing down, and things get complicated, will they both be willing to risk it all for a chance to win big?


Yowza! The steamiest book in the series yet is utterly pleasing! Book two in Kat Mizera’s Sidewinders: Generations hockey series will knock your socks off when a single mom meets her fantasy head on. I loved the characters, I loved their connection and I absolutely loved little Gracie!

Margot is a single mom giving her all to making her little girl happy and giving her a life she deserves and I simply adored them both.

Tore is a doll. He’s been lusting after Margot for awhile and when the yearly fantasy night at a local club brings them together in ways neither ever expected, he can’t pass up the opportunity to finally get a chance to win her heart.

I highly recommend this book and the series as a whole to anyone who loves hockey romance and smoking hot connections on that way towards happily ever after.

A lonely social worker.

A biker behind bars.

Can their red-hot passion set them free?

What if your first love was your one true love? Eight years ago, Puck broke Ava's heart. She picked up the pieces, patched them together, and kept going. Yet she never forgot him. When Puck sauntered through her office door at work, she was shocked to find a brawny, tatted-up biker dressed in an orange jumpsuit with the word INMATE stamped on the back.

What if you rediscovered the passion you carelessly threw away in your youth? For Puck, the only good thing about his trip to the jailhouse social worker's office was finding Ava again. All grown up, she looked luscious, and he bet she tasted even better.

Breaking up seemed like the right thing to do at the time, but no other woman could replace Ava. Fate brought them together again and Puck wouldn’t make the same mistake twice. Ava was his property and he’d bring her to heel—no matter what it took. If that included blackmail, so be it. A biker never won by playing fair.

But what happens in jail doesn't always stay in jail, and dark forces conspire to divert destiny and tear these lovers apart. Will their love survive a second trial?


A fast paced reunion of first loves! With book five in her Demon Squad MC series Monique Moreau brings us Puck’s story and it was emotionally riveting! I wanted a little more depth to their back story and family connections, but overall a strong addition to the series and left me hoping for more from the Demon Squad!

Puck has always had an emotional pull since this series started because we knew he had raised his little sister by himself, so it was endearing to get to know more of his background and watch him get his happily ever after.

Ava is a strong and determined woman who used the pain of her past to fuel her desire to make something of herself and help others.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a close knit MC who is truly a family who supports each other through it all.
