This was an amazing read. Emil and Perrin were amazing characters that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. They both had their own flaws but did their best to help each other through them. I loved that the author tied so much detail into Emil’s flashbacks. As much as I hated to see his character have to deal with that, I felt that it was very realistic and helped me understand his PTSD better. Perrin had her own issues with things after the loss of her parents but she did great in helping Emil through his episodes. I loved this novel!

This was a sweet romance novel that featured drama and tragedy. There was amazing character development with the main character Amy. She was wonderful. I loved following her story as she met and began a romance with the gorgeous Richie as well as watch her progress in her career. I would not have had the guts to move across the country like she did for her dream job. I felt that by doing so she demonstrated great courage and focus. The character Sarah was not one of my favorite people toward the beginning of this novel she completely surprised me later on. This was such a wonderful read!

Hannah and Jack are the main focus of this novel. The storyline is concurrent with Mari and Chris’ storyline featured in another Gray Ghost Novel but can still be read as a stand alone. I loved both Hannah and Jack in this story. Hannah was my favorite and I couldn’t believe the things she had to go through while at the Academy. I felt it played a strong role in the woman she became in the end though. I enjoyed the storyline and felt it was fast paced and easy to get lost in. Excellent novel and addition to the series.

This was a sweet and hilarious romance. I could not put this book down. I loved both Brett and Liv’s characters. This book can also be read as a standalone. From friend zone to crush, mixed in with a little baseball, the two have their own battles to handle a long the way. The storyline was easy to follow and I loved that Liv was a vet. Brett’s personality was awesome. He reminds me a lot of my husband. Excellent novel!

This was an exciting, romantic, and funny second book in this series. It can be read as a stand alone but there is backstory on some of the characters in the first book that is not in this novel. I really enjoyed Eagle aka Davis and his role in this novel. He had more than meets the eye and actually showed more of a soft side when it came to Winter. She was amazing though and absolutely my favorite person in this novel. She embraced her curvy body and had a spitfire personality just like her sisters. I also liked the crime portion thrown into the storyline. It seemed to help it move along giving the romance a bit more excitement. Great novel!

An amazing and fast paced novel, I could not put The Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler down. Natalie is a runner and has lived a life of half truths. She has also endured a lot over the years. In enjoyed reading how her past and her lies caught up with her and changed the course of her future. I also loved that she was an author and has to learn to not let what others think affect her. I feel like she really matured as the novel progressed. I also enjoyed Tabitha, Collin, and Jack’s characters. Each one had their own interesting personality. The love triangle was also a great mix to the storyline. I really enjoyed reading it!

Jayden was rescued from a group of violent men who were abusing her in many different ways. Paladin along with his MC Brothers were the rescuers. Now the Harreras are trying to find a way to bring her back. Paladin who has always had a soft spot for her and loves her despite their age difference refuses to let that happen. He will stop at nothing to keep her safe even if that involves relocating to a different state and transferring to another Motor Cycle Club. Hellfire and his wife Moria are preparing to take her in. They are the only MC group that has raised a family. Moria also has a history similar to what Jayden when through. The two ended up being amazing characters as well as Jayden and Paladin. I loved that this story could be read as a stand alone since it is the first book by this author I have read. It does mention characters from the other books which the author lists in the novel. I felt like the storyline was easy to read and I also loved how family focused the MC groups seemed to be. Great read!

This was an excellent compilation of Romance novels. I loved how there were different variations from stories featuring paranormals, millionaires, cowboys, ranch hands, service members, and more. My favorite story of all was A Kiss Under a Blue Christmas Moon. It was fast paced and I fell in love with the characters I enjoyed many of the other stories in this set as well. This box set contains books that appeal to a wide audience and each one is fast paced and easy to read. I really enjoyed it!

What an emotional rollercoaster! This novel hooked me in and I could not stop reading the drama unfolding between Nicole and Kris. I really felt that their struggles allowed their relationship to grow and for their characters to personally grow as well. I definitely was not a fan of Nicole at first but as the story progressed she grew on me. She became my favorite character. I also loved Khai and Nikki. They were precious and I hated seeing them hurt with some of the drama that unfolds in this book. This book was definitely something different for me. I haven’t ever read something that focused so much on the aspects of a couples crazy marriage. Great read!

Kit is a new person and no longer answers to her given name Summer. After being held captive for 30 hours and experiencing life altering torture and embarrassment she can no longer claim to be who she was. Her secret of what happened haunts her and has caused a rift between everyone she loves. Her PTSD from all war related things doesn’t help any and nothing seems to be working to help. Lee her former love doesn’t understand and wants to help. He knows she is keeping secrets but his love for her is deep. I loved both characters and the deep love Lee had for Kit. I was shocked by what she went through. I don’t recommend this book to those who are fain of heart. The torture and things these characters went through in relation to war are very realistic. I loved this novel though and can’t wait to read more from this author.
