Her ex-lover is back—

right when she discovers her life is a lie.

Ten years ago, Morgan Steele secretly eloped with River Atkinson—only to see her vows betrayed. Now River’s back, made good as CEO of a construction company that rivals her family’s empire. Forced to work together, they give in to long-suppressed desire. But when Morgan discovers she was switched at birth and isn’t the Steele heiress after all, will their second chance be sabotaged by secrets?


Her first love is back … just as her world is falling apart around her! With the second book in her Switched! series Andrea Laurence is turning up the drama on this entertaining switched at birth story. The premise is fresh, the characters are rich with drama and adding in a reunion story was fun. I’m looking forward to more to come!

Morgan is more than the spoiled little rich girl we wondered if she would be after the bombshell was dropped in Jade’s book that they were mixed up at birth. I enjoyed her drive no matter what life threw at her.

River is a successful business man who took the lemons life through at him and made them flourish into lemonade. I think he got the short end of the stick in the situation for sure and would have loved to have seen a bit more of his life developed into the story.

I recommend this book as well as the prior in the series to anyone who loves a drama filled book that delivers a powerful happily ever after. Fast paced, intense and satisfying.

Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.

Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.

At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.

The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.

But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.


This series just keeps throwing surprises my way! With book three in her highly addictive Tin Gypsy series Devney Perry captivated me from page one and kept me on my toes throughout. Highly entertaining turmoil always manages to flare to the surface when this group of loveable misfits are involved and I always find myself entrenched in their drama. I’m binging the series because it’s so much angsty goodness!

Presley is tough with a sweet center, but having the man she thought she was going to marry stand her up at the alter just might be her downfall.

Shaw is kind and down-to-earth in a smug, rich guy sort of way. I enjoyed him more than I was expecting.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close knit MC type of group who knows each other’s secrets and is willing to bury the body with no questions.



I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.

Series: Moonlight Ridge #1

“You’re the one who left, remember?”
How could he ever forget?

Celebrated entrepreneur Mack Holloway has come home to Moonlight Ridge to care for his foster dad and save his family’s once-luxurious resort. But to accomplish either he must face his past—the woman he left without a word, resort manager Molly Haskell. He’s never admitted what drove him away, and he’s not ready to confess now, even when working in close quarters ignites a fiery passion that burns away everything else. But Molly is keeping secrets of her own that could bring them to the brink…


A decadent kickoff to the Moonlight Ridge trilogy! In HOMECOMING HEARTBREAKER Joss Wood lays the groundwork for reconnecting three estranged brothers at a time when their family needs to band together the most. To accomplish this, oldest brother Mack will have to come face to face with the love of his life that he walked out on years ago. The drama is high, the passion is undeniable and the warmth and heart coming off of this family is super satisfying. I’m looking forward to the the next brother already!

Mack is an easily redeemable character who has a heart of gold and carries the burden of the world on his shoulders. Seeing him get his happily ever after is very rewarding.

Molly is a sweetheart that has been dealt more than one bad hand in life, but through it all she’s been steadfastly upbeat and ready to take on the world to be loyal to her core belief.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys seeing a shattered family reconnect as each sibling takes the walk towards their forever love.
