** Book Review ** GHOST DANCE by Catherine Gayle

Ghost Dance

5 STARS!

A gut-wrenching story of being on top of the world, but stupidly making a mistake that rips it all away in the blink of an eye!  A story of guilt, of punishment, and of redemption.

Dmitri Nazarenko was in his glory that night all those years ago when his team won the Stanley Cup.  It’s what a hockey player prays for, and he was lucky enough to be granted his wish … but what his mistakes that night cost someone close to him will forever haunt him.

Dima still plays hockey, now for the Tulsa Thunderbirds, but he is a different man.  He is surly and gruff, covered in tattoos and a beard to hide behind.

London Hawke has overcome her own trials in life, so when she sees Dima wasting his life on guilt, it really pushes her buttons.  She makes it her mission to get in his face and make him see things differently for awhile.  The fire that rages between them when they start sparring with one another burns even hotter when their dance turns physical.  Will she be able to get through to him and show him that living half a life isn’t truly living at all, or will he push her away so many times that she doesn’t even try anymore?

Her boyfriend Tim O’Brien, AKA Detective O’Hottie, has to walk a fine line of doing his job in investigating, and trying to keep Lucie out of trouble for simply being in the area.  Bring her best friend Ro, her brother Joey and her newly paroled mob boss father into the mix to try to clear her name and you have a comedy of errors bound to happen!

BOOK SUMMARY:

Mafia princess turned canine couturier Lucie Rizzo knows dogs are woman’s best friend. Thanks to her fashion-forward four-legged clients, Lucie’s dog walking/designer pet accessory business is booming. And for once her love life isn’t far behind.

Lucie devotes her days to building the Coco Barknell brand, but her nights are all about roguishly sexy Tim O’Brien. At least they will be if she and Detective O’Hottie finally take their relationship to the next level. But bring an Irish cop home to her mobster father? Fuggetaboutit.

Lucie’s knack for finding trouble lands her in the doghouse—and on the six o’clock news. Someone’s absconded with a million-dollar piece of cinematic costume history, with Lucie the only witness to the crime. Not to mention the prime suspect. To clear her name, she’ll need an assist from her entire wacky crew: friends, family…and future (hopefully) lover.

Now she was a pro and whipped out her card to anyone with even a passing interest. Her growing bank account helped inspire this newfound aggressiveness.

Estelle took the card. “Thank you. I have a little guy at home myself. A mutt, but the cutest darned thing. Maybe I’ll buy him a collar or something.”

“Sure. Check out our Web site. If there’s something you see, let me know, and I’ll drop it by next time I walk Fin.”

“Oh, that’d be great. Thank you.”

Finally, Estelle bent over and gave Fin a good rub.

“Stay, Fin,” Lucie warned.

Please don’t let him launch. With Fin, she never knew. One second he’d be calm and the next—airborne.

But, lookie here, he stayed put. He’d definitely get a treat for that.

“Good boy, Finnie!”

Lucie pulled out another treat. Peanut butter this time. Although the carob seemed to be his favorite.

He made a move to jump, but Lucie tightened her hold on the leash. “Stay.”

“Well, now I’ve made a new friend.” Estelle gave him one last pat. “I’ll be sure to look out for you now, Fin.”

“He loves people,” Lucie said. A little too much.

“I see that. It was lovely meeting you, Lucie.” She held up the card. “I’ll check out your Web site.”

EXCERPT:

It starts like this: an unexpected spark, instant attraction, the jolting jab of oh-so-you-feel-this-too? Flash fire in the belly. A corkscrew twist in the center of the chest. A physical ache that punches low and heavy and spreads out hard and fast through muscles and tendons, blood and bone.

Heady.

Erotic.

Thrilling.

Physical therapist Kasha Carlyle had felt it before, this hot flare, runaway-mine-train-express that stirred fear in the dark recesses of her mind. She’d resisted it then. Resisted it now.

But this? This here? This was something more.

Stronger.

Bolder.

Scarier.

Coal black eyes melted her resistance, seared it to ash. In that stopwatch moment when her gaze struck, and stuck to the steely stare of the Dallas Gunslingers’ most valuable pitcher, Axel Richmond.

He’d just completed a physical therapy session with his trainer, Paul Hernandez, and he was sitting on a bench wearing nothing but red workout pants, his bare chest on display. Every glistening muscle was finely etched. Not a drop of fat on him. He was a splendid specimen of adult male in top physical shape, life and passion oozing from his pores.

The only thing that seemed out of place was the black tattoo over his heart that spelled out

“Dylan.”

One look and everything and everyone blended and blurred as white-hot need transported them into their own little world far from the sports medicine facility in North Dallas, where baseball coaches, managers, administrators, and sports medicine specialists surrounded them.

For a split second.

Then pure panic set it.

It was Tuesday, May seventeenth, and the second week of Kasha’s three-month probationary period at her new job working with injured major league baseball players.

And she was already falling in lust.

No. No. This simply would not do. Keeping her job was essential.

Now that she had Emma to consider, she urgently needed the bump in salary to pay off the student loans that had gotten her through her PhD. Not to mention the excellent health insurance coverage. Finding out about Emma had changed everything.

Quickly, Kasha peeled her gaze from Axel’s and studied the insignia on the wall above his head—the blue and green Gunslingers crossed dueling pistols logo—but she didn’t see a darn thing. Purposefully, she slowed her breathing, and forced herself to listen to the conversation.

“I wish we had better news,” Dr. Tad Harrison, the lead physician on the team, said to Axel.

Dr. Harrison had been the one to hire Kasha, and the one to caution her that only thirty percent of probationary employees made it past the first three months. “It takes a special breed to work with these ballplayers. They’re long on arrogance and stubbornness and always think they know best.”

“I have a lot of patience,” she’d said because it was true.

“I heard they call you the Exorcist in your current job,” Dr. Harrison had said. “Why is that?”

She couldn’t keep from smiling. “My colleagues say I have a talent for taming difficult clients.”

“And do you?”

“I consider physical therapy a calling.” She folded her hands in her lap, and said without a hint of ego. “I was born for this work.”

Dr. Harrison stroked his chin. “That’s what Rowdy said too.”

Rowdy Blanton was the field manager for the Gunslingers. He was also Kasha’s brother-in-law, married to her younger adoptive sister, Breeanne, and he’d recommended her for the job.

“If I hire you,” Dr. Harrison had continued. “It will be on your own merits, not your relationship to Rowdy. He got you this interview, but that’s as far as nepotism goes.”

“As it should.” Kasha bobbed her head.

The uncertainty of the job was why she hadn’t yet rented an apartment in Dallas. Every day, she made the one hundred and thirty-five mile, one-way trek to the stadium from her hometown of Stardust.

While she was optimistic, she was also practical. She’d learned that fate could derail even the best intentions and you had to be ready to flow whichever way the current took you. For the next three months, until she solidified the job, she would keep making that drive.

For Emma.

Her thoughts took off in a hundred different directions at once. Stalled. Spun. Gathered momentum like an encroaching hurricane. Realizing her mind had wandered, she forcefully shut down the unproductive thoughts and directed her attention back to the patient.

Axel Richmond.

One more look and Kasha was on fire and she hated it. The last thing she wanted right now was to meet a guy, especially this guy. Whose stark dark hair was drenched in the heady sheen of sweat.

He was as sexy as ten kinds of sin, and twice as handsome, and he was studying her through heavily lidded eyes as if she was the most fascinating creature he’d seen in years.

Um . . . yes . . . that’s why her mind had wandered. To keep from dealing with the feelings his hot-to-trot gaze churned inside her.

She let out such a long sigh that everyone in the room swiveled to stare. She kept her face blank and examined her fingernails, pretending she’d discovered a ragged cuticle.

From the moment Axel had strolled into the therapy room with his pro-athlete swagger and princely sense of entitlement, she’d been mesmerized.

Spellbound by the way his fitted T-shirt hugged his intricately muscled body. Then he’d stripped off the shirt, giving her an even more arresting view. A thick head of lush brown hair curled around his ears, and those powerful thighs strained at the seams of his workout pants.

Whew.

EXCERPT:

…Darting back the way she came, she turned a corner and nearly plowed right into none other than Jean-Pierre himself.

“Oh!” With a yelp of surprise, she gripped his forearm to stay upright.

“Shh,” Jean-Pierre warned her, tucking her under his arm and pressing a finger to her lips. “There’s a camera crew just down that hallway.” He nodded to the ramp just ahead on his right.

Tatiana tensed at his touch. His scent. His maleness. She’d spent so long avoiding him, but in spite of all logic, he affected her. At six-three, and at this close range, he had to peer down at her, his brown eyes flecked with hints of gold and green. She’d fallen for him hard back in prep school, a young love that had only felt more poignant after they’d been torn apart by their families’ sudden rift. They’d both moved on, of course, two thousand miles of separation proving as effective a deterrent as the well-publicized feud. But when he’d joined the Gladiators and she’d seen him at the occasional party, she’d been as drawn to him as ever. It had been an attraction that hadn’t been reciprocated, judging by his cold words about her court case last winter. She still didn’t understand how that terse confrontation in the courtroom had turned so heated.

Now, heart hammering, she simply nodded, knowing they needed to avoid the press. Heaven forbid the media were to overhear what she had to tell Jean-Pierre.

He frowned down at her, not moving.

“What?” she whispered, shaky and off-balance as she peered up into his shadowed face.

“We could let them find us,” he suggested, his gaze roving over her as he seemed to weigh the idea. “They could photograph us kissing.”

The mention of kissing should not have sent a bolt of lightning through her. Especially when Jean-Pierre seemed to be mulling over the idea with the same attention he might give a playbook. Dispassionate. Assessing.

“Are you insane?” Her whisper notched up an octave as she grabbed his sleeve and tugged him in the other direction.

Not that he moved….

His First Choice

5 STARS!

A gut wrenching story that hooked me by the first page and had me feeling so many emotions throughout!  I smiled at the adorableness of this little boy, I ached for the pain being felt, I felt anger, and most of all, I hoped for a happily ever after for these two special guys that wormed their way into my heart.  Highly recommend!

Lacey Hamilton has always felt like she was living in the shadow and on the outside of another life, so she left the life she was living and found her comfort helping other people as a counselor for California Social Services and as part of the High Risk Team for The Lemonade Stand women’s shelter in Santa Raquel, CA.

When a case brings her to the house of Jeremiah Bridges and his adorable son, she’s drawn to them.  She’s not supposed to get close, but after a little time has passed and they cross each other’s path again, she can’t help herself.  Jem turns out to be the love she’s always hoped for, but will his inability to distance himself from the past be their downfall?

Lacey Hamilton is used to living in the background. Overshadowed her entire life, she stepped out of the Hollywood limelight and into the role she’s meant to play: a counselor, part of the High Risk Team started by The Lemonade Stand women’s shelter in Santa Raquel.

Her caseload leads her to the doorstep of Jeremiah “Jem” Bridges to rescue a little boy. She’s not supposed to fall in love with the rugged construction worker and his adorable son. Love and duty, though, don’t always agree. Especially when a truth is uncovered that neither she nor Jem is prepared to face.

** Book Review ** LEVELING THE FIELD by Megan Erickson

Leveling the Field

4 STARS!

In the 4th and final book in the Gamers series, we get to see Ethan find love!  This book is steamy hot, raunchily funny and hands down a nice ending to the series.

Ethan Talley has exiled himself from life for a number of years now, and he isn’t happy to have his business partner forcing a newspaper interview on him, but he draws the line at having his picture taken, no matter how sexy the photographer is!

Lissa Kingsman only has to hear Ethan’s voice for a few minutes before she recognizes him as a YouTube gamer from years ago that she used to watch with her brother.  He disappeared from the limelight all of a sudden and no one knew why.  She wonders if the scars down the side of his face have something to do with it.

Becca Mancini recognizes Jax the moment she sees him, but she’s not going to make his life easy!  She can’t resist the pull between them long enough to totally blow him off, but she won’t be forgiving him and letting him break her heart again.  No way!  She will however, have some fun with him without a problem!
