They can’t both win…

Can they?

Louisiana angler Victoria Thibodeaux needs the spokesperson contract with Romeo Reels to keep her business going and give her daughter a better life. But her hard-won confidence sinks to the bottom of the bayou when her rival, Alaskan fisherman Seth James, arrives. With his smooth-talking charm, handsome Seth could steal both her job and her heart, unless secrets from her past catch up with her first…


With her signature ease at weaving a tale and tugging on our heartstrings Carol Ross once again delighted me on a return visit to her Seasons of Alaska series! With a fresh plot concept, a couple of adorable kiddos and an easy to like couple, we embark on a journey of love and forgiveness in CATCHING MR. RIGHT and I loved every minute of it!

Victoria is a character that is pure comfort to be around and you’re rooting for her every minute of the book. She is all about family and giving them all the best life possible.

Seth was sweet and easily brought a smile to my face with his easy friendship with the kids.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a heartwarming small town romance with a guaranteed HEA and a cast of great characters.

I never thought I’d see her again.

We shared one hot night together back in college before our paths took us in different directions.

But now, the most brilliant and beautiful woman I’ve ever met is back in my life. And the chemistry I remember? It’s more combustible than ever.

Except…our fling is forbidden and must exist only in secret. Her rules, not mine.

I can’t be her forever. I’m not that guy, and even she knows it.

But I can’t stay away from her either. I’m determined to claim not just her body but her heart, even if that’s the one thing she’s vowed not to give me.


An unforgettable meet cute! With the first book in her Looking To Score series Kendall Ryan brings a really fun relationship to life in THE REBEL. I enjoyed the adorableness of Eden and Holt together but I felt like there was so much potential drama and strife left out of the equation where the whole ex factored into the storyline. There was also a prequel novella (ONE NIGHT WITH THE REBEL) for this series, but then that prequel word for word was put into the front of this book as Chapters 1 through 6 with no explanation, so there was unnecessary confusion.

Eden’s character is a bit of a mash-up. She was a follower when she was with her ex and didn’t stand up for what she wanted in life, but now she’s stepping into her own and taking charge of the hockey team she inherited.

Holt was a sweetheart. I really enjoyed seeing him get to reconnect with the one that got away.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with dramatic setups and complex characters.

Cameron Davies has the job she’s always wanted—designing custom motorcycles at Fast & Fury. No way is she going to screw this up. But when her wild, sexy one-night stand ends up being the shop’s new VIP client, her life is suddenly turned on its head.

Orion Stenton radiates power, danger and, most of all, sex. His lavish lifestyle is fraught with dangers for Cam—and a far too intimate link to her past. She has to keep things professional, but it’s impossible to forget the feel of him or the way he whispers her name.

The connection between them demands far more than a quick fling. But when Cam’s past puts Orion in danger, she must face her demons if she’s going to save them both.


So much complexity rolled into one amazing book! With the second book in her Fast & Fury series Chantal Fernando brings us Cam’s story in CUSTOM MADE, and it was so much more than I expected. She’s living the dream, but her past comes back to haunt her when the man of her dreams ends up connected to a demon from her past. The storyline was addictive and fast paced and left me super excited for the series to continue!

Cameron is a doll. She’s tough and self-assured, but has that soft inner heart that can’t forgive herself for the past. Watching her fall hard for a man was so much fun.

Orion is high-powered and tough, but when it comes to Cam he’s a total teddy bear right from the start. I adored him, even if he did let me down a few times throughout the book.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close knit group of friends and coworkers who will give their heart and soul to help one of their own if need be. Watching them pair off into their forever love match is really satisfying.

This is the story of a man named Brady

Reformed playboy Brady Fortune has suddenly become legal guardian to his best friend’s little boys, and he is in over his head…until Harper Radcliffe comes to the rescue. His new nanny makes everything better, but her past makes her wary. Can Brady convince her they can somehow form a family? Their Fortune bunch won’t feel complete without her!


This ready-made family will steal your heart! With the third book in The Fortunes of Texas: The Hotel Fortune series Marie Ferrarella delights her readers with Brady Fortune’s story and it does not disappoint. There wasn’t a huge amount of relationship development in AN UNEXPECTED FATHER, but the overall warmth of the story and the adorable twin aspect carried the story well. I really enjoyed Brady and Harper and look forward to more from the Fortunes as the series continues.

Brady was quick to catch my heart because of the instant father situation he finds himself in and the sincerity in which he forges all in.

Harper and her connection with the twins was adorable, and watching her fall head over heals for Brady was heartwarming.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a fast paced series based on various members of the same family finding their happily ever afters as a bit of mystery hangs in the background as the storyline continues.
