Crossing behind the couch toward the kitchen, I find myself remembering those naked, intimate moments with Kayden only a short time ago. The passion. The trust I’d felt for him. And then his words: “We both want more. Until we don’t.” The words send a surge of adrenaline and nerves through my body.

The scent of freshly brewed coffee teases my nostrils as I reach the kitchen, where I immediately find Kayden standing behind the island. But it’s not him that makes my heart lurch, as usual. It’s my gun that’s lying on the counter between us.

And when I should perhaps step backward I find myself charging forward to claim the other side of the counter.

“What is that for?”

“You thought you needed it earlier,” he says. “I want you to have it now.”

My fingers curl on the tiled counter. “Do I need it?”

“That’s for you to decide.”

“That isn’t the answer I want.”

His jaw sets hard. “If you’re expecting an answer you’ll want, you’d better pick up that gun.”

We stare at each other, a push and pull between us that has nothing to do with fear or intimidation, and everything to do with a bond we both know is being tested. “I know what you’re doing.”

“What am I doing?”

“The same thing you did outside that church, when you helped me hold the gun to your chest.”

“Which is what?”

“Offering me the façade of control.”

“You holding a loaded gun on me in no way equals a façade.”

“I know you now,” I counter. “You don’t give up control, even when you say you are.”

He rests his hands on the counter, one turned just enough for me to catch a glimpse of the hawk inked on his wrist, its wings spread, the mark of a man whose rules of many must dictate his actions. “There are two sides to this coin,” he says, his words drawing my attention, his pale blue eyes piercing mine. “The me with you, and the me with everyone else.”

“We barely knew each other at the church.”

“I’d already decided you were mine. You just didn’t know it yet.”

** Book Review ** SOPHIE’S PATH by Catherine Lanigan

Sophie's Path

4 1/2 STARS!

A sweet story about close-knit small town life, the sadness of guilt and most importantly about how helping someone else in even the smallest way could be the world to that other person.

Sophie Mattuchi is a great nurse and loved by many, but when a patient in the ER blames her for not doing enough to save his friend one night, it makes her second guess herself.  She knows she does a good job, but could she have done more?  She’s never cared this much about what a man thought about her before, and she’s not so sure she likes it!

Jack Carter knows in his heart that he’s being unfair to Sophie, but it’s almost like he needs someone else to share in the guilt he feels from that night.  The more times he runs into Sophie, the more he likes her and can’t pretend like he doesn’t.  She’s such a kind, caring person and helps everyone she can.

When Sophie and Jack admit to the attraction they feel for each other, will they be able to have a future or will that niggling of blame he still feels towards her always rear it’s ugly head and ruin things?

His key witnesses dead, Texas Ranger Garrison Travis had to protect innocent bystander Kenderly Tyler. Her crucial evidence had two very dangerous Texas crime families willing to do anything to keep her quiet. But Garrison’s undercover status had branded him a killer, and now the bad and the good guys were after them both.

Hiding out with a handsome protector, on the run for her life, was so beyond anything Kenderly had imagined. While there was more than just adrenaline pulsing between them, the Ranger vowed his job was his life. Dare she wonder what would become of them should they actually make it out alive?

Introduced to Harlequin romances by her grandmother, she went through Junior High waiting for the next visit to “Mommie’s” house. There, she’d search through the inside cover corners for checkmarks, aunt’s initials, and her favorite phrase: Okay for Angi. That’s right, her aunts and grandmother censored which stories she could borrow. Reading gave her a love for the Harlequin name and story. She still has a lot of her grandmother’s books. Angi keeps reading and thinking romance, falling in love with the “Happily Ever After” for each hero and heroine.

An 11th generation Texan, Angi utilizes her strong heritage to create passionate characters willing to risk everything. She writes Intrigues where honor and danger collide with love. When the house is quiet, she plots ways to engage her readers with complex story lines, throwing her hero and heroine into situations they’ll never overcome…until they find the one person they can love.

Angi had several jobs before taking the opportunity to stay home with her children and develop the writing she always wanted. Volunteer work led to a houseful of visiting kids and a joyful but on-the-go lifestyle. With their three children out of the house, Angi concentrated on her work, finding her dream agent and editor. She and her husband live in North Texas with only the four-legged ‘kids’ to interrupt her writing. Tex, Roxie & Little Dude keep Angi and her characters company, reminding her to occasionally take time off to play.







** Book Review ** ARMORED ATTRACTION by Janie Crouch

Armored Attraction


Janie Crouch takes us on an action packed adventure in Book #3 in her Omega Sector: Critical Response series!  I was drawn in immediately and didn’t want to put it down.  Filled with lost love, lost dreams and family angst , we go along for the ride to see if they can solve this crucial mystery that they have landed in, and maybe work through their past mistakes at the same time.

Vanessa Epperson is minding her own business, simply out for a walk one day when she stumbles across a mind boggling situation that she doesn’t know how to handle.  When it comes to her attention that local authorities might not be a safe resource to help her, she contacts the only person she can think of that might have higher contacts that could look into whether she has discovered a human trafficking ring.

Liam Goetz receives a blast from the past when he gets a voice mail forwarded to him from Vanessa.  He hasn’t heard her voice in over 8 years … not since she broke his heart and ended their engagement.  He isn’t eager to see her, but he can’t turn his back on the opportunity to get some closure on how it all ended at the same time as he sees what the situation she needs help with is.

When Liam arrives into town and they set out to solve the mystery going on around them, it opens up the door for them to air out their past hurts and share some secrets with each other.  Will they be able to forgive the past and move forward, or will they choose to appreciate ending on a better note and move on with their separate lives?

** Book Review ** STEPPING OVER THE LINE by Laura Marie Altom

Stepping Over the Line


This book was a bit of a conundrum for me.  I like the characters, and I even like them together, but the style of the book was just too over-the-top for me.  He was a nice guy, yet it seems like too much effort went into making him seem vulgar and raw.  And the step-brother/sister thing wasn’t just the back drop to the story, it was the obsession of it.  I think had parts of it been panned down somewhat instead of feeling overly exaggerated, I would have liked it a lot more.

Garrett Marsden and Savannah Boudreaux met when they were both teenagers and their parents met and got married.  They had instant attraction to each other, but tried to play it off and ignore it for years while only sharing a friendship and trying to go with the flow of their newly merged families.  When they all come together for Savannah’s graduation from med school, the pretense all blows up when Garrett and Savannah share a drunken romp that changes their lives forever!

Mistakes are made, and Garrett winds up going to prison for a few years, while Savannah goes on to finish her residency and become a doctor, while also becoming a single Mom.  When Garrett is released from prison and comes back home, it’s hard for him to settle back in to figure out where he belongs in the puzzle now.  Danger eventually comes knocking, and secrets come to light.  Will Garrett and Savannah get the future they hungered for with each other?

Under an Adirondack Sky


In this heartfelt story, Karen Rock wraps a group of troubled teens deeply around our hearts!  She makes us see them as more than just problems and shows the deep respect and appreciation that can come from being shown kindness, respect and love.  A true gem of a book!

** Book Review ** GLASS CEILINGS by A.M. Madden

Glass Ceilings


I really disliked the constant changing back and forth between present day and the past in this book, but I enjoyed the story.  The characters were fun, the plot was thick with hot sex and mystery.

During an undercover op with the FBI two years ago, Nick Farley was posing as a bartender to bring down a local mob infiltration.  On one of his last nights there, he met gorgeous Angela Cavallo. She was sweet and sexy and pushed all of his buttons in a way no one ever had before.  They had one sexy, hot night together before parting ways.

Angela has been hiding for so long now, but she needs to see Nick and tell him about the son that came from their night together.  Will Nick be able to forgive her deceit?  And will he be able to help her stay safe from the life she’s been running from?

Game On in Seattle #7
By: Jami Davenport

Released April 30, 2016

As the wild child of the family, Bellani Maxwell isn’t interested in settling down. Between a fledgling party crashing business, teaching self-defense at a martial arts studio, and hitting the bar every night, she has her hands full. She doesn’t need the added responsibility or commitment of a relationship.

Hockey star Cedric Pederson has all the puck bunnies he could ever want, but a chance encounter eighteen months ago leaves him with eyes only for the gorgeous, free-spirited Bella. Too bad she isn’t interested in what Cedric has to offer beyond frequent hookups, and he’s grown tired of their on-again, off-again non-relationship. He wants to be all-in or all-out.

When a brutal attack leaves Bella in need of comfort, protection, and healing, the only person she wants is Cedric. But once she’s living in his condo, Bella is confronted with a decision she’s been avoiding—can she finally commit to Cedric, or will she let him go one last time?

Hugging the sweatshirt tight to her body, Bella hurried past a boarded-up building looming darkly across the cracked sidewalk. The gloomy brick façade gave her the creeps, and she trotted down the street, cutting across to the other side. She’d be soaked before she got to her car.

Miserable and desperate to get out of the rain as soon as possible, she decided to take a shorter route back, ignoring the detour, which would take her two to three blocks out of her way but along well-lit streets. Instead, she veered around the corner and into the construction zone, ignoring the “Do Not Enter” signs. She’d cut through here before but not alone. It was exactly the type of area she would’ve told her self-defense students to avoid as unsafe.

Only Bella was savvy and well-trained in martial arts. She could take care of herself. She had absolute confidence she’d battle her way out of any situation. Even so, a little chill slid down her spine, and she shuddered. Shrugging it off as unfounded, she attributed her nerves to the rainwater dripping down the back of her neck.

She had very little room to maneuver as she navigated along a sawhorse-lined path made of plywood and concrete with partially demolished buildings on one side and deep utility trenches on the other. She could barely see even with the flashlight on her cell phone.

“Admit it, Bells, this wasn’t one of your smarter moves,” she muttered to herself.

She frowned as she swore she heard a noise. Only, how the fuck could anyone hear anything over this incessant rain?

There it was again. Splashing. Like boots slapping against water-laden concrete and plywood.

Her heart rate accelerated, and she increased her pace, wishing she’d brought her purse with her Mace in it. Instead, she’d grabbed a small pocketbook. She refused to glance over her shoulder, even as her senses went on high alert.

She definitely heard footsteps, and they were gaining.

Lynne Marshall has a way with words that wraps you up in the life of her characters and takes you along for the ride with them as they travel the ups and downs of life and happily ever after!

Carey Spencer finds herself vulnerable, pregnant and alone in the beginning of this story, and almost immediately walks right into danger!

Paramedic Joseph Matthews is at the right place at the right time to come to Carey’s aid and get her medical treatment as soon as possible.  He sits by her bedside just waiting for this beautiful woman to open her eyes and tell him she’s okay.  Though his life has been in an upheaval due to his ex-wife’s betrayal, he’s not the type of man that can turn his back on a woman in need, so he offers Carey all the help she needs to get settled back on her feet after she wakes up.

Neither Carey nor Joe can ignore the attraction they feel for each other.  They try to fight it, but it just won’t go away.  Can this wayward woman be the answer to healing Joe’s heart?  And will this good-hearted paramedic show Carey that there are men out there that you can truly trust?
