Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander

This isn’t the first book by Alexander I’ve read. This new series is great and I loved every minute of it. Mountains Wanted is the first book in the Mountain Series.

Sarah is a single mom to two wonderful kids. Meeting James at a sub place she couldn’t keep him off her mind. When she meets him again a few days later things change. The quote I chose for Sarah is: “With all due respect, let’s say your life is on the line in the heat of battle. Would you rather have a gay soldier who is one hundred percent focused and loyal to his fellow soldiers by your side, or a straight soldier whose mind is nowhere near the battlefield? The truth of the matter is people have the ability to be professional and put their recreational and sexual desires aside when needed. This ability has absolutely nothing to do with sexual orientation. It has everything to do with integrity and work ethic.”

James is home for good. He’s teaching ROTC and encourages his students to attend Sarah’s lecture. When he meets her one on one he can’t keep her off his mind. The quote I chose for James is: “Being deployed in a war zone, it’s obviously not like everyday life. In order for the men to stay focused, accomplish their missions and stay alive, it requires—more than anything else—mental discipline. If an individual loses focus and doesn’t see something they ought to have seen, it may not only get them injured but the person next to them as well. It’s imperative to keep distractions to a minimum. It’s focus and discipline that make the difference between frightened boys and professional soldiers who get the job done. That’s also why drinking and sex are discouraged while deployed.”

Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.

In His Kiss (The Unrequited Series #1) by Ava Alise

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Alise had me hooked from the get go. I can’t wait until the next book comes out.

Xia has had a crush on her best friend Jordan for as long as she can remember. When the unthinkable happens it destroys her. Now she can’t trust the one person she should be able to. Especially when things with Jordan didn’t work out. The quote I chose for Xia is: “He told me, Jordan. I asked him if he cheated and he didn’t deny it. He just looked … guilty. God, Jordan. What the hell?”

Jordan has always thought about the benefits with Xia, but doesn’t think she feels the same. He doesn’t think twice when she kisses him. Then he breaks her heart. The quote I chose for Jordan is: “Come on, you know I’m not going to let you face this alone. It’s what we do for each other, right?”

Forbidden Wolf (The Shadow Chronicles #1) by CR Robertson

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Robertson knows how to draw readers in and keep them interested. A page turner for sure.

Tasha is a vampire and has always been told that Lycans are bad people. When she meets a black wolf things change. Young and in love is what she is. Twenty years is what they promised, but can they make it? The quote I chose for Tasha is: “We all have to join the army the September after our twenty-first birthday. I don’t want to but there is no other choice.”

Levi was minding his business until a sexy vampire took him down. The bite she left him caused more to happen. Fated mates. He’s heard of them and now his wolf will do nothing but get to her. The quote I chose for Levi is: “You need to back the f*** up. I don’t know who you are or who you think we are, but we’re leaving.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Vampire lovers.

BRINK OF DENIAL: A Dark Mafia Romance (Sons of Sindicato #2) by Sonya Jesus & Cam Johns

This isn’t the first read by Jesus and Johns. Brink of Denial is a great read. It is the second book in the Sons of Sindicato Series but it can be read as a standalone.

Mila is back and this time it’s for good. Coming home had seemed to bring troubles for everyone. Trying to get back in Dane’s good graces is proving to be harder than she thought. The quote I chose for Mila is: “Follow me. I’ve been thinking about you all day.”

Dane is the oldest of three and is tired of having his heart torn out by the same girl. Mila will be the death of him it seems but he welcomes it. When he learns that she’s in trouble he helps her out. Why wouldn’t he, she is his after all. The quote I chose for Dane is: “Clearly. If you want to go and live Mila’s life, Dad shouldn’t stop you. Maybe talk to Mila first, and ask her how all the fame and fortune is going before you pack your bags and fly away from here. Mila’s life isn’t as beautiful as you think.”

Nightfall by TK Lawyer

This is the first book I’ve read by this author. Lawyer has found a new reader in me and I will be looking for others. Nightfall is such a great read.

The quote I chose for Tamara is: “Josh, this is Ruben. He’s a very good old friend of mine, we used to work together. Actually, all three of us did. Ruben, Vee, and me. I haven’t seen this man in a year. And it’s been what, six months since you stopped talking to me?”

Josh is Tamara’s dog Nightfall, but he’s not a dog. He’s a wolf shifter. Tamara is his mate and now that he’s found her he won’t let her go. The jealous streak hits him like a freight train. The quote I chose for Josh is: “Today was absolutely miserable for me. I’m deeply in love with you, Tamara. You’re the one for me, the only one. Now that you’ve shared with me the reason you’ve been holding back, I can’t leave you—not until I give you a true chance to be with me. I know we’ll be happy together, because I’ll do anything to bring a smile to your face—anything Tamara.”

Highly recommended for Werewolf Romance lovers.

Blue Summer Part Two by Everly Taylor

Blue Summer Part One needs to be read before Blue Summer Part Two. This picks off after book 1 and I’ve got to say what a fantastic read. Taylor sure knows what she’s doing.

Lillie is once again captured by Enuris. She escapes and meets up with Heath and friends. Once again they are trying to stop the evil sourcer. The quote I chose for Lillie is: “I guess, we just take it one step at a time from here then?”

Heath is Lillie’s first mate. When she is taken from under his nose things get tough. When They figure out what she is, things make sense. The quote I chose for Heath is: “Neither did you. It wouldn’t be fair to hold your mother’s decisions against you . Hell, you have only tried to help us since the moment you were kidnapped. It’s no wonder the Universe chose you for us.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

This is the first book I’ve read by Calder. I will definitely be coming back for more. Sexy Drug is the first book in the Losing My Heart Series.

Katie is the only daughter of a known drug dealer. She is shot and watches her best friend die in front of her eyes. Then she finds herself attracted to her new body guard. Although she knows she shouldn’t, she ends up falling for him. The quote I chose for Katie is: “I know there’s a back way. I just don’t want the staff to see this either. They talk and I can’t handle any more rumors. Not with being stuck here until I’m sold to the highest bidder.”

Ramone is on a job and doesn’t want to put up with what he calls a selfish brat. Once he gets to know Katie and understands why she acts the way she does he starts falling. He shouldn’t feel this way since she is the boss’s daughter and off limits to him. The quote I chose for Ramone is: “As you know, your father wants us to join him for breakfast. You have fifteen minutes before we have to leave, if we are to make it on time. If there’s nothing else you need, I’ll be in my chair.”

Dirty Kisses and Conflicting Wishes (Kiss me Book 1) by Danielle Jacks

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by Jacks. She keeps her readers coming back and I’m glad to be one of those readers. Dirty Kisses and Conflicting Wishes is the first book in the Kiss Me Series, but can be read as a standalone.

Zoe is loving her chance in the big city, but it all comes crashing down. She loses her job, her boyfriend, and a roof over her head. When she runs into her brothers ex-best friend.

Chased (A Cambridge Men of Honour Novel Book One): A Dark Mafia Bad Boy Romance by Felicity Brandon

This is another great read by Brandon. Ms. Brandon has a way of creating characters that you love to hate. And hate to love.

Allegra is a law student. Going out for a walk during the pandemic leads her to meet Chase. Meeting Chase was the best and worst thing in her life. The quote I chose for Allegra is: “Do you usually ask for what you want? You seem like the sort of man who just takes what he wants.”

Chase is above the law. He’s head of the Men of Honour and doesn’t need a woman. Well, he doesn’t think he needs a woman until he meets Allegra. She challenges him and he likes it. The quote I chose for Chase is: “You. Are. Safe. Nothing is going to change that…I’m not going to let it.”
