Cursed Luck (Broderick Coven Book 5) by A.J. Renee
4 Stars!!!!

Another great adventure into the Broderick family. I really enjoyed this book as it wasn’t your typical straight forward romance. Both the main characters have their own self doubts and I really like how the author brings them together and love blossoms. I really like it when I don’t want to put the book down.

I really could relate to Edward and how he felt unlucky. I like how the author really wrote his character and how he finally adapts and grows into his abilities. I love the whole family dynamic and how they are so supportive. I really cannot wait to read more from this author.

Duplicity (St. Fleur, #3) by A.J. Renee – Review by Jenni Bishop

Duplicity (St. Fleur, #3)Duplicity by A.J. Renee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Duplicity is the third book in the St. Fleur series by AJ Renee and I have been waiting to read the story about Jamie Lynn and Jesse. Duplicity is a contemporary romance and is a beautiful love story where one of the two main characters have let their past affect their future. As with the first two books AJ did not disappoint, it is just as captivating and engaging.

Jamie Lynn owns the pub in town and hired Jesse to work as a bartender. She knew she was in trouble when she first laid eyes on him and would be a mistake to hire him but hire him she did. Jamie Lynn is unable to let go of her past in which she believes everyone leaves her and because of this she doesn’t let anyone in, not even her friends.

Jesse is a man who had his future ripped away from him. In order to move on he needs to leave behind his past. When he applies for the job of a bartender in St. Fleur he hopes he can leave his past behind. When he meets Jamie Lynn he hopes she may be the answers he has been looking for. The attraction between the two is instant but Jesse has no idea what he may have done or why Jamie Lynn won’t take the next step with him.

Will Jamie Lynn finally let her guard down? Will she finally let Jessie in? Will Jessie finally find out the truth? Can Jessie get Jamie Lynn to change her mind? Will Jessie finally break down the walls?

This series and this book will make you laugh out loud at the situations and antics that these characters get up to. These Alpha men will have you heart breaking. The friendships that are family will have you believing you are a part of their world. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Duplicity (St. Fleur #3)Duplicity by A.J. Renee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Duplicity is the third book in A.J. Renee’s St. Fleur series and I absolutely loved it! I was counting down they days until I could read it! I fell in love with her city of St. Fleur in Louisiana while reading the previous books and I could not wait for her to grace us with Jaime Lynn and Jesse’s story!
So, Duplicity is the story of Jaime Lynn and Jesse, the story spans actually multiple years, in a way, and I loved how much we learn about our characters thanks to the way how the writer takes us on the journey of two people finally finding each other. I had waited for their story for such a long time! The writer kept us teasing in the first two books so I knew when I got the book that I had to put aside enough time to be able to inhale it in one go! (like an addict!).
I loved both of the characters – Jaime Lynn with her expectations that everyone leaves and no one stays and her strength and business acumen and her loyalty to her friends and her love of her little sister and her doubts and insecurity when it comes to Jesse … and Jesse, his secrets and his strength and his heartache and his love and his willingness to finally fight for what and whom he loves!
I think that A.J. Renee simply gets better with every single book in this series and I am so looking forward to the next one! I wonder who it will be about. Jamie Lynn’s little sister Charlie or … Pick up a copy and you will not regret! You will enjoy the time you will be spending with our friends in St. Fleur, Louisiana!

Always Mine (St. Fleur #2) by A.J. Renee – Review by Sheri Schrader

Always Mine (St. Fleur #2)Always Mine by A.J. Renee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Always Mine by AJ Renee is the second book in the St. Fleur series. This can be read as a standalone as I did, but I am going back to catch the first book now. This book is about Lindsey the librarian in the small town of St. Fleur, Louisiana and Marc, and Derek. Lindsey must decide if the sweet history teacher, Derek or the smoldering childhood friend of her brother, Marc. What does a woman do when there are more than one to pick from?
During all her man drama, there might also be a stalker watching Lindsey’s every move. Luckily, Lindsey lives in a close knit small town and has not only her big brother and his friends but also her friends to watch her back. Who will Lindsey pick in the love department? Will her stalker be caught?
I enjoyed this book and will be looking for the first book and third book in this series. The small-town atmosphere is refreshing and the characters are well developed. I enjoy the relationships between Lindsey and her brother’s friends. All of them have known each other their entire lives and have a close bond. The people who have entered their lives since are also embraced and brought into their close family relationship. I also enjoyed the love triangle Lindsey is a having. Who do you pick? The choice can lead her life in two different directions. Do you choose the sweet history teacher or the sexy, childhood friend? I know who I would pick.

Always Mine (St. Fleur #2)Always Mine by A.J. Renee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Always Mine is the second book in A. J. Renee’s St Fleur series that takes place in a small town not far from New Orleans. I loved the first book and I assume you could possibly read the second book as a standalone but I would definitely NOT recommend it!
Always Mine is the story of Lindsay and Marc. We already saw in the first book that there were undeniably sparks flying when they were in the same space and I could not wait for their book. Luckily their book was already out by the time I had read the first book so no hangover!
Lindsay and Marc’s story is a story of second chances, it is full of passion and heat and doubts and flashbacks into the past and internal struggle and … oh my goodness, what a ride! On top of the romance there is the whole stalker creepiness going on and that added another layer of mystery to the whole story, well done A.J.!
I loved the way Marc and Lindsay interacted, they were really endearing and they simply seemed to work … On top of that, there are quite a few other characters that we already fell in curiosity or love with in the first book and we get a bit more insight into their lives in this book, cannot wait for the next one! I love our St. Fleur family!
If you want to spend couple of hours in Louisiana surrounded by romance and heat, I tell you, you need to read the St. Fleur series! Enjoy it! And have a glass of wine while doing it!

Always Mine (St. Fleur #2) by A.J. Renee – Review by Jenni Bishop

Always Mine (St. Fleur #2)Always Mine by A.J. Renee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the St, Fleur series and I have been waiting to read this book since I finished the first, Widows Aura. Whilst it can be read as a stand alone I strongly suggest you read them in order to get the full effect and understanding of the characters. Widows Aura left off with Sofia & Noah getting engaged and their story continues in this book.

Lindsey is the sexy librarian who is dating Derek, a sweet man but she can’t shake the unknown feelings and familiarity of Marc the sexy friend of her neighbour, Noah. There is some great chemistry between the two but they have a love hate relationship and they seem to antagonise the hell out of each other without even trying. Lindsey finds herself smack dab in the middle of a love triangle without even trying. Add a stalker to the mix and you have one scared, confused and a once strong woman now fighting to keep her independence and possibly her life.

Marc’s desire for Lindsey is unexplainable yet familiar and once they make the connection he knows why. He has never forgotten the girl from his past his first love. Once he knows the truth he decides he has to have her and will stop at nothing to have her. Marc is ever the perfect man and loves unconditionally all those he cares about. He will also go out of his way to ensure all he loves is kept out of harm’s way. Whilst trying to solve the mystery surrounding the stalker Noah’s past comes crashing back in a way he never saw coming which could leave his relationship with Lindsey in trouble.

Once again AJ has written a story that that pulls you into the lives of each and every character and making you feel like you are with them every step of the way. The story is weaved nicely together with lots of suspense, suspects around the corner, tears, fears, love, laughter and great friendship with lots of hot and steamy romance. I look forward to reading more from AJ in the future and sharing the stories of those to come.

Widower’s Aura (St. Fleur #1) by A.J. Renee – Review by Jenni Bishop

Widower's Aura (St. Fleur #1)Widower’s Aura by A.J. Renee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sofia has gifts one that allows her to read other people’s aura’s which has helped her on more than one occasion. She left behind a job that was not healthy for her any longer and decided to start a new in a place called St Fleur. Sofia decides to open her own photography business which after two years is doing quite well. Sofia is a loving soul who draws people to her and she is one of the most loved people in her town. With her besties by her side she is content with her lot. Her Besties have her back and she has theirs. Together they are funny and my type of friends that will have you laughing out loud. One night she looks into the face of a stranger, one too hot to trot man she can’t take her eyes off of. Turns out to hot to trot is the one Lindsey one of her besties has been telling her about, the new hot neighbour.

Noah is hot and so oblivious to the affect he has on woman. He finds himself mesmerized by the beautiful woman he first laid eyes on not long after getting to his new hometown and is determined to stay away. But staying away is much harder than he thought when his daughter Lexi throws a spanner into the works.

I loved the alpha men in this story, so possessive and protective of what they perceive as theirs that had me laughing at them and the woman trying to put them in their place. This book was engaging and had me captivated from the start until the finish. It is a lighthearted love story that has a little mystery, suspense and some drama. I loved all the characters but I just loved Lindsey and Mark’s interaction, that always left me with a smile on my face. With the steam coming of Noah and Sofia it was sizzling, the chemistry was just off the charts. There are also times when you find yourself breaking for some of these characters that you want to wrap them in cotton wool. I am certainly hoping to enjoy the second book as much as I have this one. AJ has written a good book and you should certainly be adding it to your book list.
