The Matchmaker and The MarineThe Matchmaker and The Marine by Lucinda Race
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a small town, second chance at love romance story by Lucinda Race, and is a sweet and inspiring read which took me on a rollercoaster of emotions whilst reading it. Widowed matchmaker Melinda Phillips wants everyone to experience the kind of love she had with her husband and sadly lost. However Melinda has vowed never to date again, and meanwhile handsome Marine Adam Bell has sworn to hide his handicap forever. Adam was injured whilst serving in the Marines and had his leg amputated which is a constant reminder of his war years. Melinda’s job is matching up perfect couples and her business is thriving and she is in demand. Adam’s girlfriend rejected him following his amputation and now he is determined to protect his heart fiercely. The two meet when Melinda trips over at a client’s wedding right into the arms of a sexy Marine, Adam. Following Adams chivalrous rescue whilst at a friend’s wedding he suddenly wonders if he’s given up on love too soon and signs up for Melinda’s services. Melinda discovers that Adam’s ideal candidate is actually herself and the pair start to date and soon their relationship is blossoming. However Adam still believes that his hidden disfigurement will come between them. Melinda and Adam must overcome their traumatic pasts and take a chance at love and happiness for a second time.
I loved the main characters, both Adam and Melinda were realistic and relatable, you could tell that they both had traumatic pasts and that their fear for the future was real. The chemistry between them sizzled off the page and I was cheering both on to their happy ever after.

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay – Review by Michelle Austin

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5)Martimus by Seelie Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay was a great 5 star read.
I was pulled in right from the beginning. This was a great quick read. There are socialites that have gone missing, which includes a former vice president’s daughter.

Who is involved? Can Cate and the team solve the mystery?

Cate goes undercover trying to get information on the missing. I loved her possessive boyfriend Hazelton, he isn’t really thrilled about all the men eyeing up Cate. He is a former Navy Seal and can be very intimidating.

We get twists and turns, action, mystery, suspense and so much more. You can read it as a stand alone but reading in order will help you connect with the characters better. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. If you’re looking for a great read, 1-click and get started today.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a story to two broken people who just happen to be at the same place at the same time. This sweet story of finding love after being hurt. Melinda is a widow who just happens to be a matchmaker. She lost her love and does not think she will find another one. Adam is a Marine who loses his leg and because of that, his girlfriend walks out on him. Can he ever find love again? Lucinda Race does a wonderful capturing of the pain Melinda and Adam have gone through in their life so far. The characters are relatable and realistic. The storyline is a sweet story. Can two people ever fall in love again? I highly recommend this story because of the simplistic love story.

The Agency is on the case again. Eight people of the social elite have gone missing, including the Vice President’s daughter. Time is running out and the agents are scrambling to find a lead. Finally getting a break, they realize that they can’t send in one of their own so they pull a favour from MI Six. Agent Tillie severely injured some of their operatives so they decided to borrow her to go undercover for this case. Give her a chance to redeem herself. The chase leads from Morocco to the ocean floor and back to Spain. There is no lack of action and intrigue in this story. It is filled with suspense, drama and twists and turns that will keep you turning those pages.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Martimus is the fifth book in the Feisty Lawyer’s series. You can read this as a standalone, but you’ll probably have a better experience if you read the previous ones to get the background on the other characters.

I like the premise of this book. I had a difficult time getting past the way the main character, Cate, was written when she has to slip into her undercover role. There is something about intelligent women acting less than their smarts that just grates on me when it is written in certain ways. Now, on the flip side of that, I did feel an emotion when I read those parts, so the author has definitely given you an emotional connection. In that respect, it is written in a way that does engage you.

Martimus is full of action, suspense, and mystery as the characters are searching for missing socialites. It also has some steamy romance to spice things up. The use of the underwater habitat was interesting and gives added dimension to the story.

Overall, once I got past my initial aversion to the previously mentioned aspect, it was an entertaining read and kept me turning the pages.

4 Stars

This is the 5th book in this series and I’ve read all of the books before. I love this series and this author’s style of writing, the way she can merge in storylines and although being a partly romantic series she has a way of making the romance only come forward when needed, while you’re focused on the suspenseful part of the series.

I really liked this one, and it was nice getting to see the gang again. I loved the lab under water and would have loved spending a whole lot more time down there, this fascinates me and loved this addition to the story.

I highly recommend reading all of this series since the characters are in and out of all the books, you’ll find that you love some and then some you’ll have a little less love for but as a whole it all works perfectly.

This is a very quick one sitting read

Loved it

Martimus is the intriguing fifth instalment in the Feisty Lawyers Series by Seelie Kay. This is another clever, complex, and well developed story- intriguing and suspenseful- and in true Seelie Kay fashion, it packs quite a punch!
This is a quick and easy read with all the elements needed to make it an engrossing read:
-Missing young wealthy socialites with influential parents- one of which being the former VP’s daughter. Check
-A mysterious and state of the art underwater habitat dedicated to pharmaceutical research. Check
-A bit of a mystery surrounding the fact that the facility uses prisoners for labour, but they are never heard from again. Check
-A beautiful Agent and her protective former Navy SEAL lover, caught up in all the intrigue and action. Check
-A plan to infiltrate Martimus and find out exactly what is going on. Check
-Plenty of action, suspense, mystery, dramatic developments, twists and turns, and edge of your seat reading. Check
-A wily adversary. Check
-Danger and intensity at every turn. Check
-And a tense race against time. Check

Definitely one of my favourites of the series!

Thank you, Seelie Kay!

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay
Martimus is the fifth book in the Feisty Lawyers Series by Seelie Kay. This is a wonderfully written romantic suspense story that once I started reading I couldn’t put it down till I finished. To me this is one of those series that I will be reading over and over again. From the very beginning I was drawn in, its got action , danger , suspense and even romance. I can’t recommend this series and Author enough so with that being said I highly recommend reading this whole series. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going to happen next. In this book Agent Cate has a new assignment, eight socialites have gone missing but it seems no one cares until the Vice President’s daughter becomes one of the missing . Will they be found? Where did they all go? Find out what happens next in this must read . I’m looking forward to reading more from this Author.

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay. Not to pick favorites in this series or anything but this one definitely worth the favorite badge. But don’t get me wrong all of this series is great and while you can read them out of order I do recommend reading them in order. I love the mystery and suspense in this book it definitely kept me guessing and on my toes. This author has truly captured my attention and I just can’t help but keep coming back for more and it’s delivered amazingly each time. The characters pulled me in and took me on quite the ride. Each character is described in a lot of details and you can picture things as they happen and I love a book that comes to life before my eyes. Each character brings something unique to the storyline and you can’t help but feel a connection. It’s a well written story and it’s paced nicely even with a lot going on, never felt lost or confused. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend it!

Five Stars

Martimus is the fifth book in the Feisty Lawyers series by Seelie Kay. This is one of my favorite series, and this book may be my favorite so far. I suppose you could read this book as a standalone, but I don’t know why you would want to miss out on the great stories from the first four books. Ms. Kay weaves great stories with very opinionated characters. I couldn’t put this book down. It’s full of action, adventure and hot steamy romance. I would highly recommend this book, series and author. I can’t to read more from Ms. Kay.
