Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Game ChangerGame Changer by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart was a great read for me. I have read a few books by this author and have loved everything I read so far. This was no different for me. This book had all the feels. There was happy, sad, scared, anxiety and heat.
Poppy James leaves Savannah for NYC to follow her dreams. She meets Mac who is tall, dark, sexy and tatted but he’s very grumpy. They first see each other when Poppy is caught looking in his window staring at his sexiness while he is working out. Poppy never thought her first subject she would need to interview would be none other then that big, hulking man. Luckily for Poppy, Mac never does interviews but one look at her and he changes his mind. Poppy and Mac have a lot of chemistry and all it takes is a visitor from Savannah to get that ball rolling.

Poppy and Mac make a great couple. She gets him to loosen up at times and he loves her sassy attitude almost as much as he loves her sexy body. Mac has reasons for his grumpiness which you will find out about in the book. What will happen when one of Mac’s closest friends who he trusts more then anyone else sets him up and blames someone else. Will Poppy and Mac be able to overcome all of the bad stuff being done? Loved this book. You don’t want to miss out on this 5 star read!

The Arrangement Duet Box Set by Madison Quinn – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Arrangement Duet Box SetThe Arrangement Duet Box Set by Madison Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This duet is made up of two very good installments which I was hooked on from the very beginning. The main characters are from two different worlds. They couldn’t be more different if the author tried. Kenzie Rose and Nicholas Parker met one night while Kenzie is on a break going to get a coffee. She works 2 jobs and has little to no time to sleep. She has a studio apartment in a really bad area and takes the subway wherever she goes. When a friend / client named Bridget she is a personal shopper for offers her a chance to make more money, while being safe and not doing anything illegal she gives it a shot.
Nicholas Parker is a billionaire playboy who is with a different woman at every social event he goes to. The same woman is never spotted on his arm twice. When his business is in jeopardy because of his personal life, he must do something to rectify it. That is when he decides to give it a shot with Bridget. The last person he expects to be his escort is none other then the woman he can’t get out of his head…the woman who him and Carter soaked that night all those mo the ago.

In the second installment things go a littler further between Kenzie and Nicholas. Both of them have a past they isn’t picture perfect but they must move on. Will they be able to move on together? Will they be able to save PFS? This duet will have you hooked from the very beginning. Kenzie is such a strong character. Nicholas couldn’t have found anyone better to help with his image

Irresistible Heroes – Heroes of Your Heart by Various Authors – Review by Michelle Mulvey

IRRESISTIBLE HEROESIRRESISTIBLE HEROES by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This box set was a great read. All of the stories were quite enjoyable. One of my favorites were Two Hearts Unlikely Heroes by Tamara Ferguson which was an all around great story to read. The characters were very likable. What were the odds of Samantha Coldwell and Ben Nash crossing paths again. The chemistry between them was off the charts. Once it is know that Sam Coldwell is a wanted woman, how will Nash react? Will he care? Will he want to save her? Great read! Looking forward to more from many of the authors in this set especially Tamara Ferguson.

Two Hearts Under Fire (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8) by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Michelle Mulvey

TWO HEARTS UNDER FIRE (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8)TWO HEARTS UNDER FIRE by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Two hearts under Fire is Book 8 in the wounded warrior series. I’m a huge fan of this series and have loved every book to date. Tamara Ferguson always gives the reader a great story with amazing characters. This was no different. Russ and Claire had immediate chemistry from the minute they laid eyes on each other. There was so much action in this book and I was focused from page 1. There was a bit of suspense and definitely a shock I didn’t see coming. It was overall a great read. Cannot wait for more!!!

The Trouble With Paradise (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 4) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Trouble with Paradise (Madeline Dawkins #4)The Trouble with Paradise by Cynthia Hamilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Trouble With Paradise by Cynthia Hamilton is part of a great series. I have been reading this series in order and have loved everything so far. The author is such a talented writer. These books are loaded with suspense. I keep saying ok one more chapter, let me see where this is going to go and then forget it, another door opens up and I’m still reading a few chapters later.
Two mean are dead. One by suicide and one by a tragic accident where the wife is arrested and blamed for his murder. Mike and Madeline are amazing PI’s and are now on both cases. They investigate every angle
and scenario to find out The Who, what, why, when and how. These two characters are awesome to read about and I love how they are best friends and sometimes more.
Looking forward to more by this author.

Aiko (The Heartstrings Series Book 1) by Brooke May – Review by Michelle Mulvey

AikoAiko by Brooke May
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aiko – A Heartstrings Novel by Brooke May was a 4 star read for me. The book was about Cupid and his angels he has chosen to find love for humans. Aiko has had the worst possible luck in helping humans find love. She was recently found in the park watching a man name Alejandro make a fool of himself begging a woman not to walk away from him.
Well Aiko is called home by mother who really isn’t her mother but, is Cupid’s right-hand angel who acts like the mother. Brielle is the sweet loving mother figure of the sisters.
When Aiko speaks with Briella she finds out she can now take on assignments…her next assignment is Alejandro Gomez.
Aiko feels like she is fighting a losing battle with this guy. She has seen him in action and knows this will be a lot of work.
Aiko finds two possible women for Al to date. One is a perfect match and the other she is using to show Al the difference. Will Aiko be able to pull this off or will Al end up either with the wrong woman or possibly single? Aiko is being trusted with this task because Cupid and Briella both believe in her.

Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Michael's HeartMichael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Michael’s Heart was a 4 star read for me. I have never read any other books by this author and wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this book. I enjoyed reading this book. The characters were all loved and I feel like they all belonged. Some authors throw characters into the story and they have no purpose. This book has many well liked, well developed characters.
Colbie is looking to start up a dream. She wants to build a safe place for women to make life choices that will impact them for the rest of their lives. When she gets a letter in the mail from the staff at Hightower Television Network, her life changes. She nearly died that day while driving to visit her best friend but, she had a guardian angel. From that moment on, everything revolved around him.

When Colbie shows up at HTN for the final part of the contest she meets a few people who will become very important people in her life. The Hightower’s become like family even though they don’t share the same blood.
I love how the rare blue forget-me-nots always show up and will continue to show up to let Colbie
know she is never alone.

The Matchmaker’s Match (Man’s Best Friend Book 3) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Matchmaker's Match (Man's Best Friend, #3)The Matchmaker’s Match by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Matchmakers Match is Book 3 in the series and is just as good as the others in the series. I love any kind of romance, second chance or basically anything with dogs. These books all have dogs in them. Not just any dog but the dog holds important roles in the story itself.

In this book, Linc and Meredith meet one night and have the best night. Meredith is nursing a broken heart and figures she will throw caution to the wind and have fun for once. When she meets Linc he is everything her body could ever want in a man. She thought he said his name was Luke and he never corrected her. The next morning she is gone without a trace. These two thought they would never see each other again but, we know better don’t we? About a month later they see each other in church. It just so happens Linc is the best man and Meredith is the maid of honor in a wedding. What are the chances?
Meredith has to leave the rehearsal because of massive pains she is having and Linc is the one to take her out of there.
This is messing up all Meredith’s plans. She plans to have a baby on her own and doesn’t want a man in her life. Linc and Meredith try to fight the feelings they have for each other but it’s useless. The chemistry between them is insane even though a bunch of stuff happens between them they are both falling for each other hard! Then you throw the rescue dog into the mix.
What would’ve happened if Linc didn’t leave the army and set up that interview? Fate has a funny way of making things happen when they need to. Loved this book and cannot wait for more.

Too Hot To Handle (The Catch Series Book 3) by Avery Scott – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Too Hot to Handle (The Catch, Book 3)Too Hot to Handle by Avery Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Too hot to handle by Avery Scott was a great read. There wasn’t to much of anything in it. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more from this author. This was a happy read for me.
Tony is at a VIP event for “Catch” a friends reality tv show airing and all he really wants to do is be home or some place quieter. He spots a gorgeous girl trying to get into the VIP area and the bouncers are giving her a hard time. She’s clearly drunk and Tony decides to help her by saying she is with him so they will allow her to the VIP area.
Georgia is a woman who was recently engaged to someone who was on the reality show and basically just forgot he was engaged and is now engaged to someone new. A real jerk if you ask me. Georgia hasn’t had an easy life. She’s always trying to fit into a mold of what her step mother and step sisters are like. She reminds me of Cinderella a bit.
The night at the club, Tony sees her obviously under a lot of stress and takes her home but doesn’t try anything. He’s a perfect gentleman. The next morning they part ways only to run into each other again when Tony goes on a EMS call. What are the odds? Fate has a funny way of making things like this happen.
Tony and Georgia become friends and Tony decides to help Georgia win back the love of Chaz. They act like a couple when they go out hoping to make Chaz jealous. There’s only one problem with that plan. Georgia is beautiful and Tony is a sweet, amazingly sexy firefighter and they are beyond attracted to each other. What will happen when Chaz and Georgia are face to face again? What will happen when Tony and Georgia give it a shot as a couple and then Tony finds out about how Georgia and Chaz ran into each other when Tony abruptly left after her family treats him like garbage? Definitely a great read you won’t want to miss out on. 5 stars!!!

Girl Trap (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 3) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Girl TrapGirl Trap by Cynthia Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Girl Trap by Cynthia Hamilton was a book that was written well. I liked the plot, the suspense was insane and the book kept me mostly interested. There was to much going on at once. I felt the book was a lot for one book. Mike and Madeline were in 2 different places and it kept going back and forth every other chapter was about the other person. They were working two totally different cases so I feel like, going back and forth was pointless. I was more interested in Mike’s case but just when I thought I was going to get something good, the next chapter was about Madeline. Maybe this could’ve been two different books? Not sure! With that being said, I can’t believe what Madeline uncovered and Mike…..he’s good!!! I liked the characters as they were characters from previous books but there were quite a few others too.
Will there be a happy ending insight for all involved? Can Mike and Madeline both solve the cases they have or do they work better as a team?
