Not So Broken was such a great book and shows that their most definitely can be love after tremendous heartbreak! Gibson is actually a billionaire known as John G Colebank III of heir to the Colebank fortune. He is currently hiding out in Tilly, Georgia working as a handyman. No one knows who he really is.

I really fell in love with Gibs character. He really is such a nice guy and I was rooting for him the entire book. I do t want to give to much away but, this is a great read! One you won’t want to miss out on.

Rules of Engagement: A Single Dads Romance (Platonically Complicated, #3) by Mika Jolie – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Rules of EngagementRules of Engagement by Mika Jolie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mika Jolie….nothing more is needed. I have NEVER read a book by her I haven’t loved. This is no different. The written was perfect, the characters were great and the story was 5+ stars!

I really couldn’t say anything bad about this book. Lucas has custody over his daughter Emma. She means the absolute world to him. He would do anything to keep things justbthe way they are. His ex wife is back and wants to take him to court for custody saying he’s an unfit parent and he has different women around him all the time.

His best friend’s sister who happens to be one of his best friends poses as his fake fiancé. The only problem is, Lucas is extremely attracted to Kate and she has started in some of his hottest fantasies over the last year. Since Kate and Lucas are so comfortable around each other, it’s easy to pretend. They even kiss in public to make it known. However, Kate’s brother isn’t to happy about this plan. Before long, Kate and Lucas are sending flirty texts and then Lucas sends Kate a picture he normally wouldn’t send someone. One thing leads to another and they end up making a deal of what they are willing to do during their fake engagement.

The only rule is, they cannot fall for each other. What are the chances of that happening between now and a week from now when Lucas has to go to court? I say very likely!!! Will this ruin their amazing friendship they have had for over two decades or will they both be able to get past it?
Such a great book!!!

Rainy Day Lovers (The Rocklyns #3) by Alicia Street – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Rainy Day Lovers (The Rocklyns Book 3)Rainy Day Lovers by Alicia Street
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rainy Day Lovers was a great book from start to finish. The characters were great and the plot was great.
It all started in 2001 when Raina was witness to a homeless guy around her age was getting attacked. He wasn’t only homeless but he was in some sort of horrific accident by the look of his face. Raina saved the young man and took him to get something to eat. Then gave him money and some good advise. She told Robbie to go speak with a friend of hers and she knew if given the chance she knew he would make the best of it. All because of Raina, Robbie stepped in to help a man being robbed in a park one night and his life changed.

Fifteen years later Raina and Robbie ( who now goes by Roman ) somehow meet again. Roman has a new face and is a plastic surgeon. All things happen for a reason. Fate stepped in and did the right thing in this book about second chance meetings / romances. Roman keeps his past hidden to Raina and doesn’t tell her that he was the homeless guy she helped all those years ago. What will happen when the truth comes out.
This book was such a sweet read. I love Roman. He’s just an all around great guy and I believe he was given that second chance at a happy life because of his run in with Raina.

A Tendency Dark and Dangerous by Emmalyn Danvers – Review by Michelle Mulvey

A Tendency Dark and DangerousA Tendency Dark and Dangerous by Emmalyn Danvers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A tendency dark and dangerous by Emmalyn Danvers is a novel written in verse. I have never read a novel written in verse before nor have a read a book by this author before. I thought the book was well written. It really wasn’t my cup of tea if you know what I’m saying but, the author did a good job describing the scenes and the feelings.

Addictions come in all shapes and forms. One could be addicted to gambling, drugs, alcohol or even a person. In this book, Evangeline finds an addiction in this book that is hard to break. She seemed to have it all. A great job, a sweet, caring boyfriend and awesome friends. Is she willing to lose it all for her addiction?

Landon Kelly is a dark and mysterious person she meets at an art gallery. Her life changes when she meets him. She is living a double life but soon that will change. Will it be a happy ending or will she lose everything?

Full Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Full Glasses and Burju ShoesFull Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Full Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing was an overall great read for me. This book had a great addictive storyline that I felt like I was flipping through the pages to see what more the author had in store for the readers.

Emil has recently come home from war and still has a great relationship with all his buddies he served with. One close friend who was like a brother managed to stay alive through the extended tours they did only to come home and be in a fatal car accident. Emil has severe issues with PTSD and sometimes he cannot control his reactions to certain sounds.

Perrin is a woman who does different activities whenever she finds something that interests her. Her most recent interest is to learn to bachata. Her boss Danny knows just the man to teach her but he says no.

The first two times Perrin and Emil saw each other was nothing pleasant. As a matter of fact, Emil was a total jerk to her when she showed up at his place for another reason.

Will Emil finally give in and be able to teach Perrin to dance Bachata style?
They end up becoming very close friends and Feelings get involved. Will Perrin be able to deal with Emil’s PTSD or will that be a deal breaker. This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster. There is so much sadness and loss but there is also some happy times too.

Tapped (The Night Moves Series) by Tarrah Anders – Review by Michelle Mulvey

TappedTapped by Tarrah Anders
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tapped by Tarrah Anders is definitely a 5 star read for me. I have read a few books by this author and have loved all of them.

Janae is about to get the shock of her life one night while she is working. Kai….her Kai from
10 years ago is standing in front of her. As soon as they see each other, the feelings are brought back.

Lao has never forgotten Janae. He has always measured people up to her and no one ever came
close. He was traveling on tour as a back up dancer but now he wants to find a place to stay in. He’s tired of different hotel rooms and sleeping on tour busses. He never thought when he applied for this job, he was going to find the one woman who owned his heart.

Kai and Janae start off as friends again but, Kai knew from the beginning, he wanted more. It took a lot of convincing but, Janae finally gave him a shot. Kai started as a rookie but quickly turned into one of the best erotic dancers at the club. Janae never watches the shows but now she finds herself watching him every time he comes out.

When one is Kai’s best friends come to visit, Janae finds herself in a crazy situation.

This was a great book and had lots of heat. I loved how Kai and Janae were able to have a second chance in life. I also loved the ending. AMAZING!!!

Written In The Stars by T. Birmingham – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Book 2)Written in the Stars by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Written in the Stars by T Birmingham was a great 5 star read for me. I was a bit skeptical after reading book 1 Terrible Beauty. This book totally changed it around for me.

Winter is one of the 4 Markham sisters all names after seasons. We were introduced to the characters briefly in a Terrible Beauty and they are back and brought their A game in Written in the Stars.

Winter is the quite loner of the group. She knows everyone, they all know her but she doesn’t really talk to them. She has had a secret crush on Eagle for 3 years since she first laid eyes on him. She’s the shy type who has never acted on it. When she finally gets the nerve to ask him to coffee, will he accept the offer or decline? Will their friendship turn into anything more?
There is a serial killer on the loose and Eagle and his team are helping try to find who it is and keep their city safe. When more murders are committed missing some important factors, they think they may have a copycat on the loose which is making it that much harder to find the person / people. Many people Winter and her friends know are brought in as suspects but it seems everyone has an Alibi or was out of town when the murders took place. This book kept me interested and on the edge of my seat. I never thought the person they caught would’ve been the one involved. The reasons behind the murders was a little disturbing to me as well.

A Terrible Beauty by T. Birmingham – Review by Michelle Mulvey

A Terrible Beauty (Fallen Eagles MC Book 1)A Terrible Beauty by T. Birmingham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Terrible Beauty is a Novella starting the Fallen Eagles MC Series. I thought the book was well written. The author is a new author to me. I haven’t read many books in this genre but, I didn’t dislike the book. It kept me entertained for the most part.

There were quite a few characters in the Novella. There’s the Markham sisters who are Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Summer went to war and experienced something tragic. She came home and her new name is Kit. She doesn’t let anyone call her Summer anymore. She has been home 10 years and has kept secrets that whole time from the 30 hours of captivity. Now her past has come back to haunt her. How will her family and Lee handle the secrets when they are exposed? When Spring is threatened by Kit’s blackmailer, will they be able to come out on top or will Kit lose a family member on top of everything else?

Heart of a Hunk Anthology by Various Authors – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Heart of a Hunk: A Limited-Edition Collection of Bad Boy, Billionaire and Hunky Romance HeroesHeart of a Hunk: A Limited-Edition Collection of Bad Boy, Billionaire and Hunky Romance Heroes by Nicole Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Heart of a Hunk is a collection of books written by different authors. Two of the books I’m reviewing are Foxxy Christmas by Allyson R Abbott and A Kiss under a Blue Christmas Moon by Tamara Ferguson. I have read both authors before and have loved everything I have read by them.

Foxxy Christmas was great from the beginning. Foxxy was an escort / street walker or whatever her pimp decided to use her for. She made eye contact with a man one night while she was on a job and that was it. There was instant chemistry and he did what was needed to book her services for the following day. Foxxy is a very strong character. She didn’t give in easily but, she was finally convinced he was there to help her. Eddie is a very dangerous man who hands his hands into everything.
Will Foxxy be able to pull off what she has planned or will it be a waste of time. Richard and Jerry ended up saving Foxxy’s life.

A Kiss under a Blue Christmas Moon took a few chapters to get me hooked. Mia and Noah met at school and instantly fell for each other. They finally got up the courage to speak to each other right before the summer. Only problem was, at the end of the summer Noah was leaving for the Air Force. Everything was going well during the summer until it didn’t. Mia had no idea why Noah never spoke to her again. Blackmail is an ugly thing that can ruin something wonderful. About 6 years later, what happens when they see each other again? Will the truth finally come out? This story was very addicting and I found myself reading so fast to find out how it ended.

The Memory Of Us by Lisa Sorbe – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Memory of UsThe Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe was a great read for me. The two main characters are Elena Everhart and Weston Brooks. They have literally been the best of friends since they were babies. They did everything fun together growing up and also got into trouble together.
Elena Was destined to move away. She had big plans for her future. Meanwhile Weston wanted her to stay forever. Elena had been through a lot of heartache and loss in her 17 years of life and just needed to get away. Leaving Weston and going to Phoenix for college and to start her life broke both Elena’s and Weston’s hearts.
She kept in contact with her only living relative, her mom and even had her come to Phoenix to visit every so often. When Elena gets word her mom has passed away, her past comes rushing back. She returns home to deal with cleaning out the house and putting it on the market and runs right into Weston on the first day.
Weston and Elena still have strong feelings for each other so many years later but Elena tries everything to keep her heart locked up. Luckily for her, Weston doesn’t give up easy and is there every step of the way to help her with everything and then there is the time capsule….I feel like that was the turning point in the book.
I thought the book was well written and kept the readers entertained.
When A couple is meant to be together there’s nothing such as distance, years or career choices that can keep them apart. Fate is fate!
