3 1/2 STARS!

Lots of excitement in this book.  We know from the beginning who the bad guys is, but there is a lot of suspense as we try to figure out if they are going to be able to get away from him or not.

Nash Adamson is a former Navy SEAL, who is trying to overcome some personal loss in his life when he gets a call from his high school girlfriend’s mother asking him for help.  Maisey has evidently gotten mixed up with a major drug lord and is in danger.

Maisey Blake fell for Vincente Rodriguez’s lines and thought he was her long awaited Prince Charming come to claim her at last.  Little did she know that he was already married when he married her after finding out she was pregnant with the child he is desperate for.

Will Nash be able to rescue Maisey from where Vincente is holding her hostage?

4 1/2 STARS!

It should really be unbelievable when you read these stories where they are magically in love within a few days or a few weeks, but *sigh* it just works with some people.  Leesa & Cole are just magic.  They light up a room when they are around each other.  Such a cute couple.

Annalise Avalon’s world fell apart a few months ago, and she needed to get away and recoup herself after all the investigation is over, so she goes to visit her friend Tegan in Peaceful Harbor.  She quickly meets Cole and is drawn to him immediately even though she knows she shouldn’t be.

Cole Braden is a top orthopedic surgeon in his hometown and is surrounded by his extended family.  He is taken with Leesa as soon as he sets eyes on her and doesn’t want to take any excuses as to why she can’t go on a date with him.

Will Cole be able to help Leesa put her life back together and convince her that it should be there with him, or will she still go home and take the new job being offered to her in Baltimore?

Surrender My Love
The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor #2:

Love in Bloom: The Bradens #14
By: Melissa Foster

Releasing January 13, 2016
World Literary Press

BLURB:

Annalise “Leesa” Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush—and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.

From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He’s a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there’s a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart—and a painful past—but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.

A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs—and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

3 1/2 STARS!

I enjoyed getting to know Eva & Grady and all of their supporting characters, but I felt like the book ended too soon.  We got the back story all aired out finally, and then it was just over.  Maybe they’ll continue in another book?

Eva March met a guy online and really connected with him.  They talked for 4 months, then before they could arrange to meet, life did it for them!

Grady Addison can’t believe that the woman he has been pouring his heart out to for months is now a student in his classroom.  He doesn’t date students!  What is he going to do?

Will they be able to resist each other after the connection they have had online?

Title: To One Hundred
Series: #DirtySexyGeeks #1
Author: Melissa Blue
Genre: Adult Romance
Published: January 7, 2016
When they met online they were equals…Then she walks into his classroom.

For four months Eva March shared almost every secret with a handsome stranger. It was easy when she didn’t have to meet his gaze in real life. The online flirtation was fun. She could be a strong, put-together woman without a sordid past. Most importantly, he’d never know the truth.

Grady Addison takes his job as a professor seriously. He doesn’t sleep with co-eds, much less his students. Eva doesn’t even fit his leggy, peppy blonde requirements, but he can’t walk away now. He’s spent too much time fantasizing about her, her smile and the way her eyes darken when she thinks of her past.

And her past is a problem. The secrets she hasn’t yet told him could end his career and for Eva, her life could just come crashing down…again.

 

“ If you are not into Geeks, after reading ‘To One Hundred’ you will be a Geek lover for sure. You will discover Geeks make great lovers. Waiting for the next one in this series!!!”-Goodreads Reviewer

“This was an interesting story! I am not a “geek” and I don’t know anything about the “geek”world, so this was sort of an inside look into the “geek world”-The Smutbrarians 

“This book was fun and super hot!! I can’t wait to see what else comes from this series, since it seems to focus on the 4 main men in the book! I’ll definitely be buying the next in the series!!” -Alpha Book Club

One night, they could have one night where the complications didn’t matter. Right? Didn’t mean there would be more. For months she’d wanted to know Grady, in the flesh. Would they still spark, laugh and have an easy comfort between them? The consequences seemed so far away when she couched their circumstances in that light.
Maybe the inner debate was all lies to appease her conscience, but Eva grabbed her purse and followed him out of the coffee shop.
He revved his bike’s engine when she stepped out onto the sidewalk. She shook her head and walked over to him. “Let’s just announce to the world I’m leaving with you.”
Grady’s eyes were still guarded but he smirked. “Didn’t think you’d see me.”
He’d parked right outside the shop. She couldn’t have missed him. “Where are we going?”
His hands tightened against the bar handles. “To meet my brother Wade.”
Her heart shot into her throat. “What?”
His smirk somehow deepened. “You want the truth about him. I’ll let him tell you.”
She stuffed her hands into the back pockets of her shorts, trying to appear relaxed even though a storm of butterflies fluttered in her stomach. “What exactly will that do?”
The smirk dropped away from his lopsided smile. “It’ll get you on my bike, your arms and legs wrapped around me. Outside of that, we’ll play it by ear.”
All he needed was a James Dean leather jacket to perfect the bad boy statement. Then again, maybe not. He was lethal enough without one. “So you’re done being the kind, understanding nice guy?”
His smile transformed into a grin that promised a multitude of wicked things. Yeah. No jacket necessary. “You have to admit, it was wearing thin.”
Grady offered her the helmet. Taking it spelled trouble in all languages. Jumping on a motorcycle with a guy who wore a smile that had no good intentions behind it…Yeah. But the facts were different with him. He wasn’t just her professor. He didn’t prey on her vulnerabilities. And most importantly, he hadn’t made her feel broken once.
Eva took the helmet, fastened it and then climbed onto the back of the bike. She wrapped her arms around his chest. One could say she copped a feel as she ran her hands over his stomach. The soft cotton shirt hid taut muscles, but now she could feel every ridge. His stomach jerked beneath her hands.
“Eva?” he asked, his voice low and tight.
She leaned forward until her mouth was at his neck. “Yeah?”
He revved the engine again. “You might want to hold on really tight.”
She locked her fingers together. “I know.”

Melissa Blue’s writing career started on a typewriter one month after her son was born. This would have been an idyllic situation for a writer if it had been 1985, not 2004. Eventually she upgraded to a computer. She’s still typing away on the same computer, making imaginary people fall in love.

Her Secret Lover by Robin Covington

Release date: 1/18/16

 About the book:

 Kelsey Kyle will do whatever it takes to get into the management trainee program at the casino where she works. So when she’s given the opportunity to get a VIP customer’s endorsement for the program, she jumps at the challenge. All she needs to do is arrange a one-on-one fan experience with the woman’s favorite author, tall-dark-and-intense Micah Holmes.

An entire week at a Vegas romance readers’ convention, surrounded by hundreds of people, is Micah Holmes’ idea of hell. But one look at Kelsey, his assigned hotel concierge, and the attraction is immediate. Maybe this week won’t be so bad after all…

Anything beyond a “strictly professional” relationship will get Kelsey fired, but she needs to get close to Micah to get the super fan experience her client wants. Hot sex in her apartment pool begins a game of “undercover lover” that quickly escalates to something more. But when Micah discovers her secret agenda, all bets are off.

EXCERPT:

“This is what I don’t get, man. How do you write these incredible books when you don’t believe in love? They are the most romantic shit ever put between two covers. You write the ‘books that make America fall in love’ for Christ’s sake.”

“I hate that stupid tagline…”

“You can hate it all you want, but it’s true. You even get me weepy when I read them.” His friend smacked him on the shoulder. “We’ve been friends long enough that I can tell you I thought you had a vagina after I read your first book.” That got his attention. He swiveled his head to glare at his best friend. “What the hell are you talking about?”
“I’m just saying I didn’t believe a guy wrote them when I first read them.” He held his pointer finger up to forestall the comment Micah wanted to make. “I know you don’t actually have a vagina. I’ve seen you at the gym and you’ve got plenty going on down there to make the rest of us feel bad.”
“Stop looking at my dick, Allen. Seriously.”
“I only looked that one time, and you’re missing my point.”
“You have one?” He snorted and ducked another jab that almost made him spill his beer. “I’ve been writing for a solid week, please don’t make me read your mind.”

Allen got up and headed over to the kitchen area, opening the refrigerator to get another beer. He removed the bottle cap before he continued. “My point is that you write this shit that gets every woman in America crying and then climbing on top of their husbands who immediately start begging their doctors for Viagra by the truckload, and I don’t know how you do it when you don’t date…”

“My lifestyle doesn’t make it feasible.”
“You don’t have a sex life to speak of…”
“As long as my hands aren’t amputated, my sex life is fine.”
“That’s pathetic and disturbing,” Allen said and took a swig from his beer bottle. “But what I don’t get is how you don’t believe in love and you still write books that sell like ammo during the zombie apocalypse.”

Micah thought about explaining all the shit in his head about love and life and what went through his mind when he sat down to write a book, but he’d have to get into Becky and his marriage and his divorce and the Marines and getting blown up, and he didn’t want to go there. Not today. It wasn’t that he didn’t believe in love, it just wasn’t easy to find, and to make it last was even rarer.

“It’s not hard to sell the happily ever after in four hundred pages,” he said and finished off his beer.

5 STARS!

This is such a fun read!  The feisty attitudes of the characters make you smile and occasionally chuckle out loud as you read their antics.  It’s not all fun and games though.  There are serious life issues experienced throughout.  I smiled alot, I laughed and I cried at one scene.  I’m really glad to have read it, and look forward to the next up in the series!

Donna MacIntyre is all for having a good time.  She’s sassy and loves to flirt with Kilby, TX Catfish catcher Mike Solo on a regular basis.  When Mike finally lays a big ol’ kiss on her at the end of the season, they’re both blown away.

After a few months away, Mike gets back into town and runs into Donna. She’s a totally changed person … clothing, attitude, looks, etc.  He finds out that she’s in a custody battle with her ex for a son he didn’t know she had.  After some media coverage  of them hanging out together makes it look bad for her with the judge, Mike suggest they get married to give her an advantage in getting her son back.

Even though love wasn’t in the cards for either of them in the beginning, the more time they spend together, the more they start wondering what they are truly feeling.

Love Between the Bases #2
By: Jennifer Bernard

Releasing December 29, 2015
Avon Impulse

BLURB:

Love comes out of left field in the second novel in USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard’s sexy baseball-themed series…

Months of alternately flirting and bickering with Kilby Catfish catcher Mike Solo just turned into the hottest kiss of Donna MacIntyre’s life—and that’s a major league complication. Any hint of scandal could keep her from getting her son back from her well-connected ex. Then Mike comes up with a game-changing idea: a marriage proposal that could help win her case—even as it jeopardizes her heart.

Mike hasn’t been able to get the gorgeous, gutsy redhead out of his fantasies. The least he can do is fix the mess he helped create. Yet their engagement is quickly becoming about a lot more than doing the right thing. Because after swearing he’d never risk love again, Mike has found a passion that puts all his emotions in play, and a woman he’ll go to bat for again and again.

Excerpt-Banner (1)

EXCERPT:

Mike looked around at the milling Roadhouse crowd. Denim jackets and cowboy boots, short skirts and long legs, plenty of lip gloss and teased hair, glimpses of cleavage, earrings dangling against bare skin, pretty girls flipping their hair, laughing, teasing, sexy, cute …

And not Donna.

He drained his club soda. “Mañana,” he said to the other Catfish, who stared after him with expressions of shock and betrayal. He never left the party early. Too bad. The Roadhouse without Donna was like a game without a hit. A dinner without steak. A shower without water.

It just wasn’t worth the bother.

He strode out of the Roadhouse into the still-warm night. Up above, stars bedazzled the blue-velvet sky. The Wade kid had it right. Play well, get out of town. That was the plan. Definitely, for sure, forget Donna.

Unless, of course, she was standing right in front of him.

“Donna?”

He blinked, but she didn’t disappear. On his way to the stadium for batting practice, he’d stopped at the Dunkin’ Donuts for coffee and a cruller. Now his coffee steamed, forgotten, in his left hand while he drank in the sight of Donna MacIntyre. She stood next to a miniscule red Kia in the drive-through, a little brown bag in one hand and a Big Gulp of coffee in the other.

She looked … different.

“You are Donna, right? Donna MacIntyre?”

She rolled her eyes with a Lord-help-us expression that confirmed her identity. “Solo. How’ve you been?”

“Great. What are you wearing?” It looked horrible, whatever it was. Boxy, boring blue, below the knee. Its only benefit was that it showed off her calves. Unfortunately, they were covered in beige panty hose. “Did you just come from Salvation Army band practice?”

“That’s an extremely inappropriate comment.”

Yeah, it was, but he was rattled. “Sorry. I’m a little traumatized. Are you on a Mormon mission or something? What did you do to your hair?”

The state of her hair made him want to cry. All the curls had been flat-ironed out of it; he knew the process because his sisters used it on their curly black mops. The color hadn’t changed, thank the saints, but she wore a headband that hid most of the glorious red. A headband! And her hair was short too. She’d chopped it to shoulder-length. All that wild, beautiful hair, sitting on a salon floor somewhere.

“Wait, let me guess. You’re on your way to an encyclopedia convention.”

Looking extremely annoyed, she brushed past him. He caught the scent of fresh woodlands. At least that hadn’t changed. As she peered into the Kia, he followed her gaze and saw a sleeping kid strapped into a car seat in the back. The window was halfway open, giving the child plenty of air. He had red hair and his mouth lolled open.

“Is that the Shark?”

For the first time, she looked kindly at him. “You remember about the Shark?”

“Of course. You’re a nanny for a Shark. Hard to forget that. Or the rest of it.” He raised one eyebrow suggestively, but she ignored his double entendre. His suspicion grew that something was wrong in Donna’s world. In the old days, she never let a chance to flirt pass her by.

“I’m not a nanny anymore,” she told him, circling around to the driver’s side. “I’m a receptionist at a dentist’s office. You should come by sometime. We’re famous for our root canals.”

Cradling her coffee and paper bag against her chest, she put her key into the lock on the driver’s side door. Damn. She was about to drive away, and he didn’t know when he’d see her again.

“You know, I could use a good teeth cleaning. They look kind of green up on the Jumbotron. Where’s your office?”

“Oh. Where? It’s, um, at the corner of Twelfth and Forget I Said Anything.”

“Ouch. Now there’s the Donna I remember.”

She fumbled with the lock. “Well, forget her.”

“I tried that. It wasn’t any fun.”

She glanced up at him, her eyes narrowed, and a zing shot between them. For the first time since he’d gotten back to Kilby, Mike felt completely happy with life. He bounded around the car and lifted her coffee out of her way. “There, is that easier?”

“You don’t have to help me. I’m fine. Don’t you have some balls to play with?”

“Ouch again. I think our Donna’s back in business.” He squinted at her. “Are you wearing a football pin? Now you’re just breaking my heart.”

“Welcome to Texas,” she said, all sassy. “Where football is king, and baseball is the nerdy neighbor boy your mom makes you play with.”

“Them’s fighting words, Donna MacIntyre. You can’t just say something like that and not give me a chance to prove how superior baseball is in every possible way.”

She turned the key in the lock and swung open the door. He stepped back to avoid getting a crotch full of South Korean automotive metal. In the car seat, the child’s legs twitched, and a low wail began.

“Gotta go,” said Donna, suddenly in a big hurry. “Nice running into you and all. Have a good season.”

“Mama!!!” the boy cried. Mike could see it was a boy now. A boy with bright red hair the exact color of Donna’s.

“Shhh, sweetie. It’s okay. I’m here, and I got you some milk.” She stuck a straw in the cup and handed it to him.

Abruptly, the crying stopped. Donna shot Mike a complicated look—he detected regret, warning, pleading, and probably a few more layers—then closed the door.

He watched her drive away, speculation running rampant. So Donna had a kid. She’d never mentioned any such person. Neither had Caleb or Sadie. Not that it was his business.

Except … well, he kind of wanted to make it his business. How many dental offices could there be in Kilby, Texas?

Book Review -A WHITE WEDDING CHRISTMAS – Andrea Laurence

25779371

5 STARS!

My return to the From This Moment wedding company was even more enjoyable than last time!  I’ve been a fan of all of the ladies and the men that they find in this Brides and Belles series, but I think Natalie ended up being my favorite.  She’s such a hard-ass, control freak … but when you hear her background, you understand why and you just want to hug her.  I am so happy that she ran into Colin again after all these years … it’s a must read, so what are you waiting for?

Natalie Sharpe, co-owner in From This Moment, plans weddings for a living, but she’s the biggest cynic around when it comes to love and marriage.  She doesn’t do love, and she never plans to say I Do!

Colin Russell is the brother of Natalie’s childhood best friend, Lily.  When Lily gets engaged and wants a quick wedding, Natalie gets her fellow owners to agree to help her pull one together for her during their off-time before Christmas.

While working together to make Lily’s special day, Natalie & Colin find themselves unable to resist the temptation they feel around each other and agree to a temporary fling.  Will Colin be able to convince Natalie that happily ever after doesn’t just have to exist in fairy tales?
