Forbidden Bonds is the second book in the Immortal Curse Series by Lexi C Foss. I would recommend you read Blood Laws the first book in the series to understand the backstory of the characters and the world in which Lexi has weaved for us. This book picks up where the first one left off and is a paranormal romance about two people whose world collides and enemies become friends or maybe something more.
This story is about Tom and Amelia, we previously saw then in the first book, where Tom finds himself babysitting Amelia, which is the last thing he wants, he wants revenge and she is messing with his plans. You will find yourself disliking Tom, he is working for the enemy, he is not a nice guy but as you start to see the real Tom, you will find yourself surprisingly changing your opinion of him.
Amelia won’t allow herself and she can’t afford to get comfortable, she has been tortured by the hands of the enemy for too long. What she needs is to get stronger and then plan her escape. She will learn all he has to teach her, strive to be the best she can. Will the lies between them become too much? What happens when the bond between you is something it should not be? Can you find love with an enemy?
I enjoyed reading this book and loved the captivating supernatural world and characters that we faced in this series. It is a fast paced and action packed read that you should not miss.
Educate Him is the second book in the Highland Park Chronicles by Sydney Aaliyah Michelle and is as good as the first book Salvage Him. This book will have you hooked from the beginning and you won’t be able to put it down. You can read it as a standalone but I would definitely read the first book in the series to give you some background information on the series as a whole. You will find yourself lost in the world that Sydney has created where there is laughter and tears, frustration and hope. Trust me these men will curl your toes and leave you begging for more!
This story is centered around Davis and Julia. Julia has always been drawn to Davis, to her he has always been more than a family friend, more than her fathers best friend, more than the man who gave her comfort when her father passed away. Davis has a secret only those close to him know about, something that Julia knows nothing about. After years away she is back, Davis is now one of her professors but what he has to teach her can not be learned in a classroom.
Is Davis willing to teach her? Is Julia willing to learn Davis’s secret? Can they take the step where things may never be the same? Will Julia walk away when she knows? Will Davis let her go?
This series takes you for a look into the world of BDSM, where the men are alpha’s and hot and sexy but it is also a beautiful romance story, where age and lifestyles have no meaning when it comes to love. I can’t wait to see what Sydney has in store for us next.

World Tree Girl is the second book of The Shadow Valley Manor Series by Kerry Schafer. World Tree Girl continues from where the first book finished so I suggest you read Dead Before Dying first to understand to get the backstory of the characters. I really enjoy reading Kerry’s books she has just the right amount of intrigue, mystery and paranormal.
Maureen is an ex FBI investigator getting on with her life after being shot. And is trying to adjust to being the new owner of Shadow Valley Manor. When the local Sheriff brings a new case to Maureens door, she can’t help but jump at the chance to show that a local death is more than it seems. Along with the usual troops from the first book, you have a paranormal front seat along with the team as they unearth things you can only imagine. Will the team be in more danger than they realise? Will the team survive to find the truth.
Kerry has written a complex yet compelling plot that you don’t want to miss. This story is well written with lots of twists and turns and surprises. If you like crime, mystery and paranormal and the X files then you will enjoy this series.

This was a great book and an enjoyable read. Good story line, with relatable characters. However, there are a couple things that I think could be changed/addressed. The change from Abby and Lance not really being a thing to being a full-on couple was too fast. It was one chapter ended with Abby agreeing to go out with him more than twice and then the next chapter started off a month later with them being a full-on couple. I believe that this story could have better if you showed us the time between those two points. Explained how their relationship blossomed and became. Another suggestion I have would be to dive a little more into the background of Abby’s mom and Lances parents. Why is Lance’s so set on his future? Why did they make that agreement when they know that isn’t what he wants? With Abby, I would like to see how it affected her more than just that one encounter. See what her day to day with her mom was like. I know that there is a squeal later in the series that might go into more, but while reading this book I didn’t know that. So, I felt a little like both story lines were unfinished. I did like it and it was over all a good book.

The Case of the Invisible Souls is the latest book in the Jarvis Mann short stories by R. Weir. This is a very short story about a Private Detective, Jarvis Mann, who has been asked to help a homeless vet find missing friends. What Jarvis finds is bigger than anyone thought possible but with Jarvis on the case no stone goes unturned. Weir focuses this story on the troubles, plights and lives of the homeless and in particular those of homeless vets. This short story definitely pack the punch when it highlights the poorly treated and often forgotten men and women who have fought for their country and have been left without the help they so desperately need. I would like to see Jarvis in a full length book but with this PI on the case together with his wit and charm, makes for a good read.

Breaking Away is the third book in the Rocking Racers series by Megan Lowe and it is every bit as good as the first two, if not better. You could read this book as a standalone but I recommend reading the previous books so you get the back stories of these characters. I love this series and the world of the gorgeous Ryan’s that Megan has created. Megan manages to captivate you from the beginning and holds you ensured as you go along for the ride with these hot and steamy rocking racers!
Mav Ryan feels like he is missing something in his life, despite being successful and on top of his game on the FMX circuits. He has followed in the footsteps of his family for so long he needs to do something for him but how does he tell his family without disappointing them? Will they understand his need for something more or will they turn their backs on him? Will he find the one thing he is looking for?
Aubrey James has been burned in the past and has decided not to let anyone close but when her brothers new best friend shows up, she starts to find it difficult to stay away. But will her brothers mistakes cause problems with the one thing she can no longer live without?
Megan’s characters are full of life and love, personality and fire, friends and family, fun and laughter. You will fall in love with these characters and the twists and turns she has delivered in the book will leave you wanting more. Megan has written a uniquely beautiful romance story that is a must read. I can not wait for the next installment of the Ryan clan.
Wild: A Small Town Romance is the second book in the Love in Lone Star by Ashley Bostock. I enjoyed the story but had mixed emotions about the main character, Thatcher. On one hand I wanted to smack some sense into the man for leaving a woman when she is pregnant with his child but on the other I understood that he had his issues and he thought he was doing the right thing. So aside from that Ashley writes well as evidenced by my emotions and it was nice to see Thatcher grow whilst discovering what a family could be and watching him build a relationship with his son. I stated in my review of Wet, the first book in this series, that I love stories that are written in the characters point of view, I find it adds depth and feeling to the characters and this one doesn’t disappoint.
This story is full of heartache and love, loneliness and sadness, anger and passion and most of all second chances. It is a story of letting go of the past and not being afraid of stepping into the future. It is a story about grabbing hold of what you want and not letting go. It is a fast paced story that will ensure you are engaged right until the end.

Virtue and Honor is the third and sadly the last book in the Earthbound Angels series by this talented writer Randi Perrin. I am sad that the series is coming to an end, as I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about these wonderful earthbound angels in all three books. You must read each book in order or you will not understand the relationships between the characters. All the characters from the previous books are written into this one, although they do not have big parts but I love them just as much as I did when I read the first two books. Randi introduced us to two new characters, who were just as enjoyable to read about as they fight evil for a love that conquers all. Randi has a way of writing that draws you into this magical world she has created for us to enjoy.
In this book we see Angela who is destined for big things to come. She is an angel who must fight an evil that is set to destroy everything she knows. When she meets Mason, who is a sweet southern boy, she learns that family and true love, in the end, is all you need.
There will be laughter, love and a little sadness in this story but if you are looking for a good and fun read about angels then Virtue and Honor and this series is just what you need.

All the Wounds in Shadow by Anise Eden is the second book in her Healing Edge series. I do not think you should read it as a standalone as we are picking up where we left off in the first book – Cate has accepted a position with the MacGregor group and it feels like we are back with old friends. Cate has started her internship under Ben’s leadership of the team. They have decided to keep their relationship just for themselves for now and I love the slow burn we see throughout the book – as Cate is still ‘in training’ then she is not allowed to have sex (and you can imagine what kind of tension it brings along considering how Cate deals with the emotional overload) and … eat red meat (I wonder why …). I loved how the writer allowed their relationship to grow while they are solving a mystery with their team (and Ben’s old Marine buddies) … Anise has written a solid sequel that does not leave you disappointed, especially if you like a bit different type of paranormal reading! I am curious to see what she comes up with next (and I hope we will get more of the rest of the team – the paranormal one and the marine-y one!)

World Tree Girl is the second book in the Shadow Valley Manor series and follows the adventures of Maureen and her team in the investigation of the Paranormal.
Maureen is no stranger to the unknown as she was on a team within the FBI regarding the strange and unknown after an accident she is now working out of a residential home that was be-quested to her from a former colleague. There is something not quite right within the county and they are twists with ghosts and unexplained phenomena that the team will how to find out what is going sown.
The story is full of the weird and wonderful and the fast pace of the book has you hanging on the til the very end. I enjoyed the story line and though it was well written with the twists and turns as you turn every page. This is the first book I have read by this author and although I could follow the story with not having read the first book, but I will definitely be looking to download it and start reading it straight away.

Empires and Kings by A.C. Bextor is the first book in her Mafia trilogy and a solid five star read! It was the first book I have read by this writer and I was and am smitten! At the time of writing this review, I have already devoured the second book and I cannot wait for the third one to come out! I hope Carrie is not going to make us wait too long! Yes, you can say that this book (and series) is a romanticized organized crime story but I do not care! The way the writer draws us in and the rollercoaster we are on from the page one, it is something. And yes, this book is dark and brutal, from the page one … the lives of Vlad and Klara and all the others in their ‘family’, all the angst and all the secrets … The complexity of characters, the surprising vulnerability of someone who appears so cold and in control (obviously I am talking about Vlad) when it comes to the people he loves … but let’s start from the beginning – Klara met Vlad for the first time when she was 5 years old and he was torturing her father who was betraying ‘the family’. She has lived with the Zalesky family ever since … Vlad is the head of the ‘Russian family’ in Chicago and as you can imagine, he carries many secrets. If you like mafia stories and are curious about Vlad and Klara, I invite you to join us in the world the writer has created where no feeling stays untouched and unfelt and where you are not able to put the book down until you get to the end and then, most likely, like me, you will go and get the next one. I was lucky; I started reading over the weekend so I had time to read also the next one! Carrie, please do NOT make us wait too long for the third one!

The Angel Series is the first of four books by Tracy Lorraine in her Angel series. I liked the fact that they each flowed on from one another with the characters each interwoven throughout. I enjoyed Tracy’s writing style and the complexities and depth of the stories and the characters. I fell in love, laughed and cried with each and everyone of these characters as they took on a life of their own and walked with them through their heartbreaks and loss, love and acceptance. The range of emotions they feel you will feel right along with them and the twists and turns will have you glued to the end and then leave you wanting more. The Angel series is focused around four women, Molly, Abbi, Emma and Connie and their struggles, their losses and their loves. What they find is the one thing they each need but getting there is not always as easy as it should be or could be. What they need could be right in front of their faces. What they need could be their perfect fit. What they could have is their happily ever after.
Molly – When tragedy strikes best friends are found, what happens when feeling change and you find yourself falling in love with your best friend?
Abbi – When you have finally put the past behind and turned your life around, what happens when you come face to face with your hearts desires?
Emma – When you are still grieving from a loss so profound and insecurities, what happens when you find someone who thinks you are perfect?
Connie – When you have hidden your feelings your whole life, what happens when you make something so amazing?
Lilly is the third book in The Angel Series by Tracy Lorraine in her Angel series. Just like the other books in this series, I liked the fact that they each flowed on from one another with each of the other main characters interwoven throughout. I laughed and cried, feared and loved right along with Lilly, our main character in this book, as she suffered through so much, her heartbreak and loss hit hard. What she finds is the one thing she needs but getting there is not always as easy as it should be or could be. What she needs could be right in front of her face. What she needs could be her perfect fit. What she could have is her happily ever after. What happens when your Boss is not what he seems? What happens when the one you love rips your heart out? What happens when demons of the past haunt you? Can demons be left behind? What happens when love is all you need?
I really enjoy Tracy’s writing style and the beautiful and wonderful characters she creates and the amazing world that she brings to life. Make sure you read the other books in the series before this one. You will not be disappointed in this new book in the Angel series, so sit back, relax and enjoy. I can’t wait to see what Tracy has in store for us with future books.
Where the Night Ends by Melissa Toppen was my first book by this author and I can’t say that I was disappointed. Like all books I buy, once I saw the cover I had to have it. Sebastian and Tessa are start out as that couple that everyone knows in school the unattainable boy, the girl with a childish crush, but what they become is more than one could hope f or. The author had a way of weaving the words to make you feel everything they were going through. The story is about the ups, downs, pushes, and pulls that often occur in a real relationship and kept true to the fact that not every story is a fairytale.
There was also some humor in it and I loved this line “He makes me so happy I swear I feel like I’m going to burst open and rainbows are going to start flying out of me. ” I literally laughed out loud.
The only part I felt that was lacking is I would have liked a little more backstory and history on each character, a little more about what they endured that made them who they are currently. Having said that this was a wonderful story that warmed my heart and soul.
My favorite quote of the whole story was “I know it only takes one night – one moment, one choice – to change the entire direction of your life. To take everything you thought you wanted or knew and jumble it into something almost unrecognizable. ”
I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good love story with a little angst.

Because of You is a standalone by Megan Nugen Isabell and it is the second book I have read by this writer and she killed it! The first book I read by her was a fine read but this one, oh my goodness; this one simply took it beyond anything I could have imagined! “Be the woman he fell in love with. Live and be strong. Always.” The writer ripped out my heart and I never got it back … I cried and cried and hoped for the best and … I get you, Megan, I understand why you said that this book took you almost two years to write and that eventually Sam and Gabe where screaming at you to tell their story … I would scream as well … So Because of You is the story of Samantha ‘Sam’ Everly and Gabriel ‘Gabe’ Torres. Samantha’s life has been one horror after another since she was a little kid and it has been just her and her older sister Rachel against the world … The demons though, they do not leave you even when you leave the place and people that are the cause of it and very often even if we do not want to repeat the patterns, we still tend to it … Sometimes, you need to reach the darkest point of your life to find the light and hope … Gabe is a Boston cop and one of the best men Sam has ever met, one of the best any of us has met. The world is a better place just because men like Gabe exist. I invite to join us on the journey of Sam discovering her worth and value … rage against the abuse that so many children and women (and also men)suffer every day … and wish for the light and hope … I promise you that once you start Because of You, you will not be able to put it down and once you are at the end, you will love Megan for ever … though I do understand why you wrote the way you did, I still wish …

The Cowboy’s Socialite by Carmen Falcone is a the first book I have read this author and I enjoyed every word. The interaction between the two main characters is fiery and explosive at times with the hints of will they won’t they.
Lola has not had the best luck in LA, so she decides to convert the ranch her father has left her into a bed and breakfast, but there is one flaw in the plan her estrange husband also owns half of the ranch so this will become interesting.
So Lola rocks up in the ranch and Jack is appalled that she is even considering this option and bets that she could not be a Texan Cowgirl, so Lola rocks up in her designer cowboy boots to try and prove him wrong.
As the story builds the interaction between the two characters becomes more and more intense as they start feeling all the old lust come back. I enjoyed the style of the writing and the quick pace of the story. I read this book in a night and was griped with what would happen to these characters in the end. At first I did not think I would bond with the character of Lola but in the end I warmed to her. I recommend this book and it is a great holiday read.

Wow all I can say is wow. This story held me by the throat the whole time. Not one rime did I feel like it wasn’t worth it. I truly enjoyed every word this author typed. The characters were real and likable. Their joys and pains a tangible thing. Not your average adult romance story. Wyatt is all alpha male and he is HOT! He doesn’t do relationships or long term its all one night. He wasn’t ready for Circe and what she represented. The thrill from the suspense of what will happen next had me on the edge of my seat. The flow of the story was crafted beautifully. I was lost in this authors word and didn’t want it to end. It’s not often that I find someone who catches my full attention with the words of their imagination. This author brought these characters to life and made me believe that they’re as real as you and me. Definitely a must read. A book you will want to sit down with a glass of wine and get lost in the pages.

Closed Set by Julia Harlow is a standalone suspense romance story that takes you to the distance. It is the second book I have read by Julia and I have to say that I enjoyed this one slightly more as it flew smoother and I did not get the moments where I would have gotten annoyed with something. For me the story of Cassandra Carlson and Christopher Edwards is like a river where you go white water rafting – there are parts/moments where you do not know if Cassandra and Christopher will make it and the river is like Hollywood, you never know what is hiding beneath the surface. Cassandra is a beautiful dance teacher who is working on her five-year plan at her best friend’s dance studio in Beverly Hills – her plan is earn enough with these five years and then go back home to Cincinnati to open a dance studio there and teach kids dance. She is in some ways naïve and wholesome and incredible beautiful and her attraction to Christopher is instant. Christopher is a British A-list actor who has finally made it after working hard in the industry for 15 years. His sole focus is on his craft. He has beautiful women falling for him right and left and he does not consider himself ready for an actual relationship … still, the moment he meets Cassandra, he is instantly smitten. Julia will keep you at the edge of your seat while managing the underwater dangers of Hollywood and you will not have a one boring moment. If you do not mind steamy sex scenes, lurking danger and living on the edge, this book is for you!

Virtue and Honor by Randi Perrin is part of the Earthbound Angels series. This is the third book in the series and can be read as a standalone. I have enjoyed this series of earthbound angels and how they live normal lives as everyday humans but also have a life as an angel to assist us on earth. This story follows Angela and Mason. Both have complicated pasts but are truly meant for each other. I enjoyed reading their story and watching it unfold. Angela is very innocent and naïve but with a heart of gold and lost her best friend and love. Mason is experienced and had his heart crushed by an ex. The two have normal relationship struggles but also the added twist that Angela is an earthbound angel. Her work as an angel also is filling her life with twists and turns. I really enjoyed the characters Angela and Mason. I was rooting for them to make it out of the turmoil together. I have read the other books in the series and liked how the past characters were brought into the story. The characters are great and the story was exciting. I will continue to look for books from this author in the future.
Because of you by Megan Nugen Isbell is a great happily ever after story with great characters and a beautiful story.
I have read the majority of the novels written by Megan and I have to say they never disappoint, I love the writing style and the way that they just flow through with fast pace. The characters which are written so well which makes you feel like you know them as your friends and following the lives in real life.
This story follows some strong subject matter and the character of Sam comes under a lot of pressure in the beginning of the story to stay in a relationship which is not really health for her, but with the help of her family she becomes a strong character to leave the destructive relationship but falls into a depression after a accident.
I comes her knight in shining armour in Gabe a Boston cop who in the beginning is there for her but as they go on, Gabe starts to develop feels and wants to get to know Sam better.
As the story continues you get to see both these characters grow through the story and you just wishing them to get together.
I loved this story and it can be read as a stand alone story and cannot wait to read more from this author.

The Case of the Invisible Souls is a short story by R. Weir. The story is part of the Jarvis Mann stories. I was pleasantly shocked by a great story in such a short number of pages. I have not read any of the Jarvis Mann stories but truly enjoyed the story. I enjoy a good mystery and read this straight through to figure out what was going on in this page-turner. The characters were well developed and there was a good plot. I was shocked at how much was packed into so few pages. I will be looking for more stories by this author.

Angel Series by Tracy Lorraine Books 1-2.5 4.5 stars Molly Part 1 & Part 2 This is an intense two-part book about love, laughter, friendship, and loss. Molly and Ryan have become the very best of friends since the accident that killed her best friend and his girlfriend. When Molly moves in with Ryan after her ex cheats on her things change between them. The intense attraction takes them both by surprise and they try to deny it. This story is relatable and will make you feel for the characters like you are living it with them. Molly’s character is so deep and there are so many different layers to her that sometimes you love her, hate her, feel for her, or want to be her! Her background is heartbreaking and is beautifully written. Ryan is an amazing character also but is totally the opposite from Molly which I think makes this pairing so enjoyable to see and makes you root for them even with the weird circumstance they have. Then adding in all the extra characters – friends, family, co-workers, made this story just relatable, hilarious, and an amazing read. I do believe that their story as amazing as it was, was drawn out to long. It only goes over the course of 6 months or so but the number of chapters with the amount of detail I believe was just a little too much. There were defiantly things that could have been left out.
Abbi: 5 stars Short and sweet is how I would describe the story about Abbi and Jax. The story continues off where Molly ends but also gives you flashbacks on what happened between them from their point of view from what you saw originally in Molly. At first, I wasn’t sure about the flashbacks, I didn’t believe that it was something that we really needed to see. But I was wrong, it made it all the more perfect in the end. This wasn’t a long story at all but it was the perfect ending to the second couple we rooted for in Molly.
Emma: 4.5 stars This book starts a little while after Abbi ended and it shows the life of Emma. A character that we have grown to love and hate in the last books. This books really dives into the character of Emma and explains why she is the way she is and makes you really love and understand her. Ruben is the other character that you meet in this book and he is a the tough player who falls for Emma. He is a such a strong character and the pairing really makes you root for them.
A couple of things about this book is that, there is too many twists when it comes to the story of Ruben and Emma. As soon as you get settled in the story something else happens and crashes the whole thing, and it happens over and over again. Also with the last time it happens, it gets resolved and then just ends. No true happily ever after or any sort of closure. I do believe that she could have written that better.
Connie: 5 stars Connies character is a character that you didn’t get to know very well before the book because she wasn’t introduced until Emma. But she is a great addition and friend to Emma. She is quirky and funny and you can’t help but fall in love with her. Another great addition is that she is the best friend of Emma but also the younger sister of Ruben so it gave you a great contrast of character. Her story is about Fin, Rubens best friend and they hint about their relationship in Emma but unlike Abbi’s story where is was basically a wrap up of what you saw it Molly. Connie’s story dives into the background of Fin and Connie’s relationship all the way to the beginning and goes along with some bumps along the road in the present. This was short story but a beautifully written one all together.
Overall I give the box set a 5 star rating! It’s a great compelling read that keeps your attention and wants you to find out more through the whole story. Now onto the 3 book, Lily!

The Cowboy’s Socialite by Carmen Falcone is a standalone book and the first book I have read by this author. This story is a romance about having a second chance with the one you love. There is a lot of off the charts chemistry between the characters that starts with regrets and hatred and ends with love and laughter. The world in which Carmen has created is easily believable and you can picture these two as more than just a story. I love the way they relate to one another but both have pretty big egos that neither can put aside.
When tragedy strikes there is not enough there to keep them together, they are torn apart. Now Lola is back and both must face old wounds. Get ready for an explosive battle of wills and find out who will be left standing for the battle of Red Oak Ranch. Grab a cool drink and settle in because when these two collide the fireworks go off and things are set to sizzle.
It is snarky and steamy, funny and sexy with a little sadnessness, but one good read.

Unlikely in Love is the first book in the Parker Lake series by Ashlie Knapp. From the very first page until the last this book grabbed me and I was able to jump right in. I adore the small town books where love is blooming. I love that I can laugh out loud and I love a story that can make me smile, this book hit it all for me and highly recommend this author and this series. This is the first book i have read by this author and I can not wait to read more from her and also see where this series will go. I simply adored this five star read and the connection the main characters had.
Annabella is back home and needing help run the family farm. Her high school crush is home from his time in the military and asks for a job. When he takes the job, he quickly is able to see that the only girl who kept his interest in high school still can. I loved that these two could banter with each other, but still have moments where they can be serious. Two strong character who learn no matter what the odds, they can still come together and be love, happy, and content. Truly an amazing read!

All the Broken Places is the first book in The Healing Edge series by Anise Eden. It is her debut paranormal romance book and it is a great start on a very promising series! It is from page one that you get pulled into the world of Cate Duncan and she does not let you leave. I think I felt very strong about Cade’s mother committing suicide as the lead singer of my favourite band just committed suicide a month ago and I am still reeling … For me, the book actually went well beyond the supernatural, it tackles the deep issues of depression, suicide and abuse … I loved Cate the therapist with some unique abilities and my gosh, Ben the head of the program Cate ‘joins’ and the son of the woman heading the whole collection of alternative healers. I have been practicing reiki for almost 20 years so some of the things made me sit back and say, hmm … it is totally possible and it is not so far out …. And all the other people around Cate and Ben, I cannot wait to learn more about them in the books to come or at least I hope so! Thank you Anise for creating a world that will keep bringing us back, even though we all do not have those amazing and crazy gifts as your MacGregor Group, I think there is a lot we can relate to … Don’t we tend to think that we are right and the others are emotional or … We can see that the writer has really done her homework and we can enjoy the fruits of it … I know what I will be reading next week, I have the next book in the series already downloaded … Join me but please read the first book before starting on the second one as well, you will be lost …

A Scottish Wedding is sequel to Hilaria Alexander’s Lost in Scotland and I inhaled it straight after I was done with Lost in Scotland. You do NOT want to read the Scottish Wedding before Lost in Scotland! I got the second book first so I had to put it on hold while inhaling Lost in Scotland. I absolutely fell in love with Sam and Hugh and I guess I cannot say I fell in love with Scotland as I have been in Scotland for a long time so I am very grateful to Hilaria for gracing us with more of Sam and Hugh and hilarious co in the beautiful countryside of Scotland! The beautiful imagery, the banter and sexy encounters … vow … she really made me blush and sigh lost in the pages and pages of beautifully written story … You would think when seeing the title that the story is only about Sam and Hugh’s nuptials but you would be wrong! It is about so much more! It is about how they get to know each other more, build trust and learn how to endure life’s hardships, the importance of friendship and being there for others … I truly hope that Hilaria is not leaving Scotland behind and she will keep telling stories that cement our love for all that is Scottish! I have to confess that after finishing this book, I got Hilaria’s Rivers brothers’ books as I got interested in them when Hilaria mentioned them in Scottish Wedding so here I come, Rivers brothers!

The Flip (Romance in Rehoboth book 2) by K.L. Montgomery
I am absolutely in love with this book. The interaction between Andrew and Sonnet (competitive adversaries since childhood) and what they thought of each other cracked me up. This is my first book by this author and I can’t wait to go back and read the first of this series, as well as her other books.
I loved the way the story unfolded while giving us tidbits of the past and how these two arch enemies became the way they were. The flow of this story was perfect and I loved the change of perspectives throughout.
Aunt Penny and Serenity were my favorite characters in this book, well of course next to Sonnet and Andrew. The author was really creative with the hilarious obstacles that kept popping up while they were redoing the house left to them, from millipedes to rusty nails, sinkholes and then oh my goodness an alligator in Delaware. I laughed out loud so many times. This book just plain made me feel good, I Loved It!!!! Review by @debikircher

This is the third book to the Rocking Racers series. This is my new favorite genre sport romance. This could be read as a stand alone but to get a better understanding of the characters you should read the first two. You will love them just as much as this book. This book has it all romance, deception, danger, and love. I could not put this book down. I devoured this amazing story in only a few hours.
Maverick Ryan has the dream life with his family and friends. He is a very famous freestyle biker on the outside but on the inside he wants more. Mav has a different dream than his brother’s. He ends up breaking away from the race scene and tries to follow his dream. His first day he runs into a guy that he instantly clicks with. They become friends right away. Mav thinks he has his new life figured out until he sees his friend’s sister. He is instantly drawn to her and his new goal is to make her his. The problem is their pasts get in the way. Will Mav follow his dreams or will it be too much? Will he get his girl or will she run for the hills?
Aubrey James knows a bad boy when she sees one. She has already had her fill with bad boys. She is not going to make that mistake again. When her brother brings a guy with tattoos covering his hot body she refuses to go near him. When Aubrey’s past comes knocking on the door Mav steps up and protects them. She may have misjudged him. Will Aubrey give Mav a chance into her heart or will she leave him high and dry?
This has been my favorite book so far in this amazing series. I love all of the characters. Mav is so strong in following his dreams. He is a true gentleman under all of the ink. He is a man that has a heart of gold and would do anything to see Aubrey smile. Aubrey is a real sweetheart once you get to know why she is the way she is. She had a hard past but it made her stronger and more independent. There is some intense scenes that will break your heart. This story deals with an addiction you don’t hear much about but the author does an amazing job on this toughsubject. The best part of this book is that it is in multiple points of views. I love it when you read what a character is feeling. It makes you more connected to the characters and it brings them to life. This is another masterpiece by this author and I can not wait and see who’s story is next.
Pressing Adalyn is the first book I read by Jenn Hype and it was a great story. At first I did not quite know my feelings towards Adalyn as she seemed quite a bitter person, but as I got into the book you kind of understand why this women has become so hard and you also admire the strength which you feel from the character within the writing.
I loved the way the author wrote the book in both POV’s and how the writing seamlessly meanders from his story to hers with out repeating too much of the story. Also loving the character of Ian as the love interest was a great contrast between the main characters.
I think my best part of the reading was the no holes barred, straight talking room mate and great secondary character in Stacy, this character to me seemed like the voice of reason when this went a little pear shape for Adalyn.
I would love too read more by this author and am very excited for the next book in this series as it involves Stacy my favourite character.
Crashed is the first book in the Casper’s Ghost series by Kerri Ann. This is my first book by Kerri Ann and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. This book is fast paced and will have you hooked. It is riveting and is full of so much drama that it will keep you turning pages. I found myself tensing up more and more as I got into the story and found connections with the characters as my heart went out to them as they were all struggling with the roles they found within their family dynamics. There are tears and tantrums and heart stopping moments that Kerri has written beautifully.
The Crown family are a famous sporting family. Wyatt races bikes for a living and finds himself struggling with his dark and twisted ways of his life on a daily basis. He loves his family but his Mother is a real piece of work. What he comes to realise is that his Mother and himself are more alike than either one of them want to admit. The interaction between the family with their Mother is certainly explosive and volatile. You will feel yourself cringing whenever they have to deal with her.
Circe works in the world of television and when she meets Wyatt the sparks certainly fly in more than one way. What she finds with this man is more than either of them thought possible.
There are definitely hot, sexy and explosive scenes that will have your heart racing. I cannot wait to read the second book in the series.
