Playing dirty can be the best kind of fun…

Chloe Franklin wouldn’t call herself a commitment-phobe, so much as she’s allergic to anything long term. She loves the sexy, sweaty and intensely hot hours of the night that come before the sun rises, though. Especially when those nights are spent with Search-and-Rescuer Gage McGraw…

Gage loves his job, but there is one thing he’s starting to like more than the rush of a mission—a stacked blonde with a mouth that haunts his dreams. Every time he steps foot in the sleepy town of Beaufort, he hooks up with Chloe. But he’s tired of hooks-ups. He wants more.

Just the sight of Gage gets Chloe’s blood going. Hot, bothered, and finally naked, she’s ready for their night to start. But before he takes her, he whispers what his intentions really are…and then the games really begin.

BOOK REVIEW – A Cold Creek Christmas Story – RaeAnne Thayne

25246649

5 STARS!

RaeAnne never fails in weaving a magical family atmosphere that you can sink into for several hours as you enjoy her books.  This one touched me because you met one person who had been touched by trauma as a child who was able to reach through and help another child suffering the same way.

Celeste Nichols loves living in Pine Gulch, Idaho.  When a children’s book that she wrote becomes super popular, she doesn’t much enjoy the popularity of that.

When she runs into Flynn Delaney, she remembers how kind he was to her when they were young and can’t help but remember the crush she had on him.  He’s in town with his little girl, Olivia who is suffering with how to deal with moving past the things that happened to her and things she saw.

Will Celeste be able to help Olivia?  And will the attraction brewing between her and Flynn be a passing thing or is there a possibility of a future there?

5 STARS!

O M G … I loved Brody, really, I did!  But now I love Jaxon too.  Who do I want her to choose?  I don’t know!

Leila Matthews short-lived happiness was turned upside down when she told her boyfriend Brody that she was pregnant.  Their 3 months together was over before she knew it.  Her heart was ripped out and handed to her.  If she hadn’t had her great friend Jaxon there by her side making her get up every day and live her life, she didn’t know what she would have done.

Jaxon Henderson AKA Remi, is a former Marine badass and a part of the Marines MC.  He met Leila a few weeks before she had met Brody when she treated him in the ER.  He had been asking her out, but she kept telling him no.  They became friends though, even though Brody hadn’t liked it.

As they share their lives together, their friendship turns to love and they are so happy together.  He’s treating her like gold and treats her unborn baby like it’s his very own.  When Brody shows back up in the picture, and Jax does something to let her down, how will Leila react?  Does she give Brody another chance after the way he treated her and abandoned her when she needed him most?  Can she look the other way and forgive Jax for letting her down?

SYNOPSIS:

NEW BEGINNINGS

E.R. nurse Leila Matthews’s whole life turned upon one single sentence: “Brody, I’m pregnant.” What she thought would be the happiest day of her life became a nightmare as she was abandoned by the father of her soon-to-be-born child. If her friend Jaxon wasn’t there to pick up the pieces, she couldn’t have coped. Then what had started out as a deep and abiding friendship became a soul-searing love. 

Yet, while Jaxon is the man of her dreams, Leila doesn’t want her child to grow up not knowing its father. The situation, a triangle involving tortured pasts and unstoppable passion, will test everyone involved. Both suitors will seek forgiveness for terrible mistakes, and Leila will soon be pulled between two powerful men: a handsome CEO who owns all he surveys, and an ex-soldier whose M.C. teeters on the brink of the unforgivable. Leila must choose the man who is perfect for her future…and for the future of her child.

PULLED EXCERPT

© A.F. Crowell 2015
~Leila~
Once we got home, I drove out to Johns
Island, praying the entire way. One minute I prayed Brody would still be in New
York. The next I prayed he would be there, waiting for me, ready to tell me
what a fucking moron he had been.
               
I knocked on the door and Jane answered.
I could see the pity in her eyes. She knew. I felt the tears welling up in my
eyes, but I swallowed, blinked them back and went inside with her.
“Ruger is just out back. Come on. Let’s
go to the kitchen. Are you hungry? Can I make you some lunch?”
“No thanks Jane. I’m not hungry. I don’t
really have an appetite at the moment. I just want to get Ruger and get out of
here before he gets home,” I said, looking around for my Shepherd. “You don’t
know when Brody is getting in do you? Because I don’t want him to find me here.
He was mad enough last night. I just want to grab my stuff and my dog, then I
will leave him alone, like he wants.”
“Sweetie, I understand y’all are havin’
some issues right now, but just please give him some time to come around. He
will. He just needs time.”
“Jane, I love you to death, but I don’t
have time to wait for him to pull his head out of his ass. I have a baby to
think about. I need to worry about us.” I placed my hand on my abdomen. “And
how I am going to raise him or her by myself.” And here come the tears. “I’m going to go get my things from Brody’s
bedroom. I won’t be long.”
Racing up the stairs, I grabbed
everything of mine I could see. I left the gifts, jewelry and toys. I didn’t
need any more reminders of Brody than I already had. Throwing the duffle over
my shoulder, I went back down to get Ruger.
“Jane, I think I have everything. If you
see anything else, would you please just set it to the side and call me. I
could meet you somewhere.” I hit the bottom step. “You know, so I don’t have to
come back out here.”
A look of panic flashed on her face and
I knew.
He was home.
FML. Part of me wanted to run out the
front door, but I could hear him talking to Ruger in the family room.
Fuck, fuckidy, fuck, fuck, fuck!
I knew he saw my car out front. It was
pretty hard to miss. I felt a stray tear slip past and quickly wiped it away.
Jane walked to the foot of the stairs
where I was standing and whispered, “Please Leila, just go talk to him. I
promise he is calm. You know he won’t yell in front of me. Or Ruger for that
matter,” she said with a little giggle, trying to lighten my mood.
“Jane, I don’t think it’s a good idea, I
need to just go. He made it perfectly clear last night what his decision was.
Please, don’t make this any harder on me.” I bit the inside of my cheek to
distract myself from the emptiness and ache in my chest. We were whispering
back and forth when I heard him clear his throat. I closed my eyes, looked down
and took a deep breath.
You can do this. Just walk out the front
door, whistle for Ruger and walk away. Come on, one foot in front of the other.
“I didn’t expect to see you here,” Brody
whispered.
