If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved from her native Chicago to Portland, Oregon, where she’s reconnected with her spirited Aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts. Sam is everything Beth is not—and her parents’ worst nightmare: a tattooed auto mechanic who’s rough around the edges. Reserved and smart as a whip, Beth isn’t exactly Sam’s usual beer-drinking, pool-playing type of woman, either.

But if not for an awkward setup one evening, Beth might never have left early and been involved in a car crash. And if not for Sam—who witnessed the terrifying ordeal, rushed to her aid, and stayed with her until help arrived—Beth might have been all alone, or worse. Yet as events play out, Sam feels compelled to check on Beth almost daily at the hospital—even bringing his guitar to play songs to lift her spirits. Soon their unlikely friendship evolves into an intense attraction that surprises them both.

Before long, Beth’s strong-willed mother, Ellie, blows into town spouting harsh opinions, especially about Sam, and reopening old wounds with Sunshine. When shocking secrets from Sam’s past are revealed, Beth struggles to reconcile her feelings. But when Beth goes a step too far, she risks losing the man and the life she’s come to love.


Debbie Macomber pulls at our heartstrings with this latest book in her New Beginning series! If you read either of the previous books in the series, you’ll be sure to recognize Nichole who is the BFF of the heroine of this one. It was fun to catch up on how she and Rocco are doing and hearing a little about Owen, Leanne & Nicolai! 🙂  I enjoyed the characters and the plot for the most part, but found it a little difficult to connect with them as a whole. There were however several sub-plots that added a lot to the overall book.

Beth Prudhomme was at her wits end with her overbearing mother, so she up and moved from her home in Chicago to Portland, Oregon where her beloved Aunt Sunshine lived. It was exhilarating for her to finally be on her own to find the job of her dreams teaching music to high schoolers, and enjoying living however she wanted to. When her fellow teacher and friend Nichole wants to set her up with a friend of her husband’s, she’s leary, but she agrees to go.

Mechanic Sam Carney isn’t the type of guy she’d ever take home to her mother. He’s long haired and tattooed and cusses like a sailor. They are both quick to realize they aren’t interested in each other and beat a hasty retreat as soon as dinner is over, but a chance accident at the corner changes their lives in ways they never could have imagined! Sam is the first on the scene after she’s hit by a car that ran the red light, and he keeps her calm and stays by her side until help arrives. He goes to the hospital with her and finds himself returning every day while she recovers. The connection they felt at the accident scene and the hours they spend visiting draws them closer and eventually into a relationship. Will they each be able to overcome their own issues and pasts in order to make a future together?

Becoming an ER doctor had been David McGregor’s mission ever since he could remember. But after tragedy strikes at his hospital in Chicago, David runs away from the guilt—all the way back to Latham Hills, Michigan, where he takes a job tending bar at his childhood friend’s restaurant. That’s how he meets Camden Reed, and the way Camden refuses to give him the time of day should be a turnoff. Instead, he’s drawn to her tough, tightly wound exterior, and soon David realizes that he has a new mission: to see her tightly wound beneath him.

Camden’s fighting tooth and nail to resist the desire she feels for David. Growing up dirt-poor, raised by a single mother, she worked twice as hard to get where she is today, and she doesn’t have any patience for the kind of guy who’d give up a decent paycheck to sling drinks. But when the sexual tension finally combusts between the sheets, Camden discovers that people aren’t always what they seem. As David pushes her past her limits, Camden begins to loosen up—and to trust that, when she falls, there will be someone waiting to catch her.


An emotionally raw novel filled with a couple of wounded souls finding healing in each other’s arms! It was bittersweet to read this book because even though it’s one of my favorites in the series, it’s also the last. Sad to let this great group of friends go!

David McGregor abandoned his life in Chicago to come to his friend’s aid in Latham Hills, Michigan, but the fact that Aidan needed him was just happenstance to the fact that he needed to leave the turmoil of his life behind. He may have been a doctor once upon a time, but the trauma that happened one night led him to this place … to the heartache that he feels … and to just needing the easy life of bartending at his buddy’s bar for a little while.

Camden Reed carries her own secrets from past heartache, and she doesn’t do relationships … but she can’t deny she’s drawn to the ever-flirting David even if he isn’t the type of man she would ever go for. She needs stability, not a flitting through life bartender!

When passion ignites and secrets are revealed, will the fallout lead to forgiveness and a future no one expected?

A navy SEAL sniper turned bodyguard, he'll protect his target…at any cost…

The SEAL's secret assignment had been to protect a certain important doctor. But when the man is murdered, Austin Foley's mission changes. The navy sniper must now protect the doctor's protégé, the irresistible Sophia Grant, at any cost. For Sophia has information that could endanger the entire country. There's only one problem: Sophia has no idea what those secrets are.

With lethal terrorists on their heels, Austin and Sophia must embark on a covert operation. But it will mean placing Sophia even more in harm's way—a sacrifice not even the steel-hearted SEAL may be able to make.


Exciting from the first page and filled with lots of mystery and a touch of romance to grab our attention. The characters are a pleasure to get to know. The ending seemed really abrupt, but we did get a small look into what happened afterwards with an epilogue. Looking forward to more to come in this new series!

Navy SEAL Austin Foley was sent on special assignment to protect a doctor who had put himself in danger previously to help the good guys, but before he can make it there, the doctor winds up dead and his protege Sophia Grant is in danger!

Sophia has no idea what the killers think she may have. She didn’t know anything about her mentor’s secret mission and can’t give them secrets she doesn’t have! As bodies start piling up, they race against danger to try to figure out what information got the doctor killed and how they can stop the terrorists. Along the way, Sophia and Austin grow close and can’t imagine walking away from each other when this whole mess is over … will they get the chance to see what the future holds or will the bad guys find them first?

Sailor Carlson comes back to Boston to make amends with her dad, only to find he passed away, and his bar, the Alibi, now belongs to a bearded, grumpy hottie. Mr. Hottie liked her enough for a night of nameless sex on the kitchen counter, but he wants nothing to do with her now he knows who she is.

Ryan Edwards has been running the Alibi for seven years. Being in a bar night after night means he's no stranger to one-night stands. But when the quirky, beautiful blonde he spent a hot night with shows up at his bar claiming it used to belong to her father, his guard goes right up.

Ryan's desperate for a waitress, and Sailor wants a chance to work in the place that meant so much to her dad. If only the tenuous trust they establish were as strong as the pesky attraction simmering between them.


A story of regret and redemption. It was a fun read, and the characters are pretty likable … my one pet peeve, and it might just be me, but the constant “Heh-heh” of the heroine was like nails on a chalkboard … so irritating! Overall I enjoyed it, but didn’t fall in love with it.

Sailor Carlson made a boat load of mistakes in her life that she only wishes she could have the chance to atone for. Her biggest regret is how she treated her father, but sadly, he died before she made the effort to come back home and make up with him. She lives with that guilt on her shoulders every day, and thinks if she could somehow feel close to him again, she could be more at peace.

Ryan Edwards meets Sailor one night at a bar and has a sexy night with her, but the next day his eyes are opened when she comes into his bar and makes it plain that she thinks it should be hers. He was left the bar by a man who was like a father to him in his teenage years, and has been running it ever since. It’s certainly not his fault Sailor disowned her father all those years ago!

As they let down their guard and get to know each other, will they figure out they actually like each other? And as Sailor works side-by-side at the bar with Ryan, will it make her feel a part of her father that she’s missed all these years?

Carol Marinelli kicks off the new Paddington Children’s Hospital series with a surprise baby! The connection between the characters is rather innocent at first.

Opportunity leads to a one-time fling, and then SURPRISE! … they’re pregnant! 🙂 I’m looking forward to the future books in the series because this hospital was fun to read about!

London paramedic Victoria Chase loves her job and does it well. She could do without the criticism of the new A & E doc, but such is life! She does have to admit to appreciating his hotness though … and that accent!

Dr. Dominic MacBride fled his home in Edinburgh to get away from some family drama and betrayal, but unfortunately he still carries the pain with him. He knows he’s been a bear and sets out to apologize to Victoria. One thing leads to another and they have a one-night fling. Imagine their surprise when they find out they have a baby on the way! Due to some of that past betrayal, it makes for an awkward situation that they have to find a way to work through. Will they each be able to let down their guard enough to let the other one in and actually enjoy a relationship out of this?

Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…

Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she's sweet and intriguingly innocent. It's a risk-free assignment, until he's required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.

Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it's not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that's real, raw and absolutely against the rules…


Potent sex appeal at it’s best! Really loving this series by Lori Foster. Former MMA fighters turned bodyguards … they bring the lethal edge of power that their bodies exude, along with the steamy, raw passion they put into their work, as well as their women. Generally nice guys that warm up the pages! Looking forward to more to come!

Justice Wallington left his career in MMA fighting to join his buddy Leese Phelps as a bodyguard at the Body Armor Agency. He’s really enjoying his job, but he’s not sure how to read this latest assignment. There seems to be no danger, but extremely over-protective parents to a not so young daughter.

Fallon Wade suffered a huge tragedy and her parents sheltered her from as much of life as they could afterwards. She adores them and they her, but she really is ready for her chance to live … and just breathe! She just wants to try the simple things … a drink, talking and mingling with people in public, going to the movie, etc.

Justice doesn’t expect to feel drawn to her, but she’s a really kind person, and she just touches something in him without even trying. The fondness and attraction is very mutual … and Fallon begins to blossom under the new experiences she is sharing with Justice. When actual danger comes knocking, will he be able to keep his personal feelings in check while he keeps her safe?

Pregnant with the billionaire's babies!

After the painfully public demise of her intense fling with renowned tycoon Henri Sauveterre, Cinnia Whitley discovers she's pregnant…with twins! Cinnia burns with the memory of his touch, but bearing a new generation of the Sauveterre dynasty will bind her to Henri forever—unless she keeps it a secret…

Henri is infuriated when he discovers Cinnia's deception. His little sister's abduction ended all his intentions of having a family—but any Sauveterre deserves his full protection. Henri must make Cinnia his wife, and he'll show her just how pleasurable their reunion can be!


A really nice continuation of The Sauveterre Siblings! I didn’t fall quite as deep into Henri’s story as I did with Angelique’s in the first book, but close. I really enjoy the family dynamics of this group of siblings and especially how close their lives have made them. We saw a hint of trouble in paradise with Henri & Cinnia in the first book and now we get to know exactly what has happened and what the future holds for them. Looking forward to the upcoming books in the quartet!

Cinnia Whitley is a headstrong, independent woman who wants it known to all that she doesn’t need a man to complete her, and she deals with her business and personal decisions on her own. She reluctantly agreed to a fling with Henri Saveterre even though he made it clear from the beginning that it had no future. When she finds herself pregnant … with twins! … she decides to remove herself from the relationship before she has to blow his world apart by adding more responsibility that he very clearly doesn’t want.

Henri is not happy at all when he finds out from another source that Cinnia is pregnant, and he especially doesn’t like that she played a bit of a mind game with him as she left the relationship without telling him. Considering his family history of danger to his loved ones, he insists she move in with him right away so he can make sure she and the babies are protected. This was exactly what Cinnia didn’t want … to be more of a burden … if only he could really love her …

He was a womanizing bachelor, but he took his sister’s kids in and raised them. Now they all work for his firm as publicists to a lot of hot sports guys! Great characters, a lot of fun family interaction and some hot chemistry between the main characters keep us interested and intrigued throughout.

Annabelle Jordan has always been attracted to the hot, muscular guys they represent, so former football player Brandon Vaughn is no different. She sets out to help him manage some bad publicity that is coming up in regards to his new retreat that he’s building … but will she be able to keep her hands off of him?

Vaughn used to be her uncle’s star client until his ex-wife got her hands into his business.

Another hot athlete takes center stage as The Hot Zone series continues. Yank and his nieces are still full force into managing athletes and the like! I enjoyed the continuation of the series, but didn’t connect with Micki and Damian quite as much as I did with Annie & Vaughn in the first book. I still enjoyed them and their story though!

Micki Jordan has always been the tomboy of the family, but she’s set her sites on a steamy baseball player, and thinks she’s going to have to pull out all the stops and get a little girly in her appearance to snag him!

Damian Fuller noticed Micki even when she wasn’t dolled up, but he knows he’s not the type of man she needs. He’s full-force ahead with his career and can’t afford distractions and she deserves so much more than that.

When he has a couple of scandals hit the fan and Micki steps in to help, they can no longer fight their desire for each other and have a fling … but he tries to forget her and continue allegiance to his career soon after it’s through … but life has a way of doing whatever it wants and he finds himself having to follow along and forge a new way of thinking!

The third sister gets her chance to shine in Carly Phillips third book The Hot Zone series! I liked the sweet interaction between these two even before things turned steamy, They are an unlikely pair, but so good together when they finally let their guard down!

One sister is on out on maternity leave, the other is on her honeymoon … Uncle Yank is unavailable, and Spencer has all of a sudden vanished after a life-long secret has been exposed to the media!

Star Quarterback Riley Nash has his own reasons for needing to get in touch with Spencer, and he’s determined to stick close to Sophie until he does so. He knows Sophie has a little crush on him, and he can’t deny he feels a special kind of attraction when he’s near her too. Will they be able to overcome the family dynamics flying all around them, surpass all the scandal, and come out on the other side as a couple?

Now it’s up to him, and Hot Zone publicist Amy Stone, to get his life back on track.

Amy finds it’s easier said than done. What with the constant intrusions of his nutty family, a crazed fan playing stalker, and Roper’s refusal to put his own needs first, she’s starting to think that life in the fast lane isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But when the two retreat to a secluded lodge, the sexy center fielder throws Amy a curveball—one she never saw coming…

The instant attraction dimmed a bit in this continuation of The Hot Zone series. Luckily they find their way back to each other later in the book and the excitement builds again. Fun characters with lots of family drama, work overload and funny antics of the cast around them keep us entertained and wanting more.

Professional baseball player John Roper was at the peak of his career a few short months ago, and then he hit a slump … and it went from bad to worse. He’s trying to rebound in the off season to come back fighting hard when the season starts, but his family is driving him crazy. He can’t take care of his body’s needs to heal and train if he can’t get a minute to himself.

Amy Stone has taken a job with her Uncle Spencer’s company and is now living in NY and working at The Hot Zone. She and John have a little chemistry explosion the second they lay eyes on each other and when they end up working together, they have to recommit to getting to know each other and forging a working relationship. Can she manage to wrangle his family for him and get him concentrating on himself and his comeback before it’s too late?
