The Heart of Baker Bay by Danielle Jacks – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Heart of Baker BayThe Heart of Baker Bay by Danielle Jacks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The heart of Baker Bay surprised me. I’m the beginning, I felt like it wasnt going to hold my interest. I’m not sure where exactly my opinion changed but, I found myself really enjoying this book.

Poor Jody….I kinda felt bad for her in the beginning. She seemed like she just couldn’t keep a job. After being fired from her most recent job, she ended up having to go help out / run her grandmothers shop in Clover Bay. Jody told Adam that someone from her family would be there the following day. Hannah was expected to be that person but since Jody promised it, Jody is the one who has to go do the work.

Adam is a small town guy who likes to help everyone out. He wasn’t expecting Jody to be there that morning and he seemed to be really put off about it. I almost feel like Adam was being mean to Jody because of the type of person she portrayed. Once Jody showed her real self, Adam and her began to get along and Adam helped her out as much as he could.

Will Adam and Jody end up being together or will Jody go back to the city life and see how many more jobs she can go thru before finding the right one.

I liked the characters and the story flowed well. Looking forward to more by this author

Beginnings and Endings: A Selection of Short Stories by Jane Suen – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Beginnings and Endings: A Selection of Short StoriesBeginnings and Endings: A Selection of Short Stories by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beginnings and Endings was 4 super short stories. I almost with there was a bit more to them. I think they were way to short to base an opinion off of. I think this was about 35 pages in total and can be read in one sitting. It took me about 20-25 mins to read all 4. What I did read was good but just felt like it brought new meaning to the word short story lol. This author is not new to me and I have read many books by her and enjoyed just about all of them. Looking forward to more by this author.

Mr. Nice Guy (Pierce Brothers Book 1) by Belinda Williams – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Mr. Nice Guy (Pierce Brothers, #1)Mr. Nice Guy by Belinda Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mr. Nice Guy was such a great read and I can’t say enough good stuff about it. Chelsea is the little sister of Tom’s best friend and when she needed a place to stay, Tom took her in. Typical book..just like all the others, right…..WRONG!
Chelsea dates loser after loser until one night her best friend schemes up a plan for her to date a nice guy for once. Who else would be perfect to play that part aside from Tom? Only one problem, Tom is extremely attracted to Chelsea. When she sees him at the beach with no shirt on and he sees her in that itty bitty bikini, the reader expects it to be done…..NOPE!
They are supposed to date for one week. The first few dates are just a nightmare lol. Also, Tom has a lot of baggage he still hasn’t overcome yet. These two are absolutely perfect for eachother but what if, they both end up having real feelings for eachother and then it doesn’t work out. They are friends and roommates. Is it worth losing what they have? Will they ever find out if it’s worth a shot? You have to read this 5* read to find out. I loved it and cannot wait for more.

Moonlit Kiss (A Venice Romance) (Moonlit Destination Series) by Amy McKinley – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Moonlit Kiss (A Venice Romance)Moonlit Kiss by Amy McKinley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Moonlit Kiss by Amy McKinley was a very good read with a good storyline and good characters. I have read other books by this author that I loved but, didn’t have the same reaction to this one. However, I did enjoy the book but, it took me a few chapters to get into it and it was a slow burn for me. I guess that’s a good thing because as your reading, you think eh…it’s ok but then it gets good lol

The main characters Gianna and Sergio have never met before but once Sergio steps in to help Gianna when she falls there is an instant attraction. They feel like they have met before but, neither of them could remember meeting. Gianna has never been to Venice but everything seems so familiar to her. Even back streets she takes without having to look at the map.
The main reason Gianna is in Venice is for a job to restore an old painting. She jumped at the chance to do it. Then she realizes one panel isn’t finished. Who will finish the original painting.
I’m sure you will enjoy this read. I’m glad I kept reading to see what the book was about.
This book is a stand alone and can be read as one but the other books in the series are definite “don’t want to miss out on” books.

Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5) by R.L. Dunn – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Secure Decision (Chase Security Series Book 5)Secure Decision by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Decision is Book 5 in the series. Each book is great on its own and doesn’t not need to be read in order but it makes sense if you can to do so.

West Crockett is running the new training facility and has so much on his plate when he meets Ellie. He saves her from a car wreck and immediately the chemistry is there. However, Wes is one of Ellie’s bosses so how is that going to play out? Ellie West is now running the Equine Therapy Program. She hits a lot of bumps in the the road. People working under her try to bully her and make fun of her and how she got her position but that’s the least of her worries.

Ellie is running from a very crazy and dangerous past. Can she outrun her past or has it caught up with her? Will she be able to walk away safe and sound? Then there is also Wes….will he be able to safe Ellie from her crazy past and save himself too? This book has everything you could want in a great read. Action….lots of action, suspense, great friendships, romance and a great storyline.

Cannot wait for more in the series!

Kissing Scars by Jim Shomos – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Kissing ScarsKissing Scars by Jim Shomos
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kissing Scars wasn’t a book I would typically read. It took me a while to read it even though it was a short novella. I thought the writing was very good and the characters were very well liked. I’m not sure why I had a hard time getting into it but it was of no fault of the author. This was the first book I have read by him and wasn’t really sure if I was going to be into the book or not.

It was a sweet read about 2 romantics who end up falling for each other. They are very different. There’s a big age difference between the two and they are on different paths. Will they be able to make it work or is there just to
much that they cannot see past? Again I thought it was very well written and I give the book 4 stars.

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Love UnexpectedLove Unexpected by Marina Hanna
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read by this author but, will not be the last. The author won me over with this read.
I loved it, loved the characters and the way the book just flowed. I did want to punch Adam a time or two but hey, it’s not a great read without that.
Jules is such a sweet fun loving character but she is one feisty thing and she doesn’t take anyone’s garbage. She gives it as good as she gets it. When she spots a tall dark and handsome guy at her local bar she never expected what would happen next or what would happen on her first day at her new job. This was a great read!!! I cannot wait to read more by this author…..soon!!

First off, let me say I have only read book 4 and book 5 of this series and I think I need to go read 1-3.

Luckily she’s a hair stylist and Sheldon needs one for one of his clients. This book was crazy. I can’t believe the stuff that happened in the book. Sheldon and his team are my hero’s!

Both Hannah Banana aka Hannah Brently and Kyle Randall have had really bad luck with love and Valentine’s Day. Here they are having a meeting in person after so many years and both are attracted to eachother. They end up going on a dinner date to discuss work Hannah will be doing for Kyle.

I thought this book was very well written and I liked most of the characters. All except Kirk!

This book kept me entertained from the very first page until the last sentence. I absolutely loved this book and the characters. There was a lot of action and suspense in this book. At one point I was like wait….what???? I couldn’t believe it!

Dereck and his crew are there to try and find a missing dancer named Bryanna. Layla is not only good friends with her but also roommates with her. Layla has a one track mind to find her sister that went missing.
I just couldn’t believe the turn of events towards the end. I cannot wait to read more by this author.
