REBECCA STEELE FINDING A DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES BOOK 2) by JOANNE PATTERSON – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream (Rebecca Steele Series #2)Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream is book 2 in the series. I did not read book 1 but, that didn’t really affect my review. However, I may have liked the book more if I read book 1! I enjoyed reading this book. The characters were likable which makes it that much easier to read and enjoy a book. This was a quick sweet read about the life of Becky and some love along the way. I really liked reading about Chance and Becky. Every good book has some suspense and some twists to keep you entertained. I found myself trying to put the book down but saying, one more chapter first. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this book.

St. Nick’s Christmas Wish (Holiday Hunks Book 7 – Hot Hunks-Steamy Romance Collection Book) by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Holiday Hunks-St. Nick's Christmas Wish (Hot Hunks Steamy Romance Collection Book 7)Holiday Hunks-St. Nick’s Christmas Wish by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tamara Ferguson has always been one of my “go-to” authors. I have loved every book she has written and this book included. This book is about a broken hearted stock broker named Nick Hanover. His childhood wasn’t one some of the typical teenage boys he knew had. His parents hardly ever speak and never came to any of his games. Mike took him under his wing being 2 years older and they built a great friendship. That’s when Nick realized there were secrets in his family.
When Nick turned 18 his dad was a lot more open about things and told Nick things no one else knew. At 18 years old Nick will have a lot on his plate.
About 12 years later, Nick is nursing a broken heart and decides to go vacation on Bali with Jack and they stay at with their childhood friend Rand. When they are out they meet 3 women Ciara, Janelle and Emma. Nick and Emma immediately have chemistry but of course they gets messed up somehow but not before they share a heated kiss that neither can forget when vacation ends. Emma and Nick end up running into each other again in Crystal Rock. Everything seems to be going well for them until Mick gets that phone all about his half brother. Will Nick be able to tell Emma all the secrets and still be happy or will the secrets tear them apart. This book has a lot going on but it was a really good book and keeps you interested from the very beginning.

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town RomanceThe Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The matchmaker and the marine was a great book that was well written with great characters.
The two main characters have their own issues.
Melinda moved to Chester to start a new life after losing her husband and facing memories everywhere in her home. It was to much for her to handle. In Chester she has become a very successful matchmaker who gets referral and referral from the many HEA’s she has played a part in creating.
Adam is in Chester staying with a friend who is like a brother. They have been best friends for many years. Adam is at a wedding when he runs into Melinda. They start to talk about how they both know the couple and become quick friends. Adam hires Melinda to be his matchmaker but things don’t go very smooth for him. He’s ex military with many emotional and some physical scars. Adam not only hires Melinda but she also hires him to do some work in her yard. The chemistry is amazing between these two main characters throughout the book but is it enough? What happens when a secret is exposed that isn’t ready to be told?
I thought this was a really great book and look forward to many more from this author. This is definitely a book you do not want to miss out on!

New Jerk in Town: An Enemies-to-Lovers Romantic Comedy (Carolina Kisses Book 2) by Sylvie Stewart – Review by Michelle Mulvey

New Jerk in Town: An Enemies-to-Lovers Romantic Comedy (Carolina Kisses Book 2)New Jerk in Town: An Enemies-to-Lovers Romantic Comedy by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

New Jerk In Town by Sylvie Stewart was a great read. I love the chemistry between the two main characters Jill and Milo. They had a friendship 12 years ago and haven’t seen each other since that crazy summer. Now when Jills car breaks down as she’s passing thru, the last person she expects to see is Milo. Of course they fight when they first meet but have no choice but to speak to each when they need to. This book takes you on a roller coaster. I like how the author gives the reader the backstory to help us understand why Milo and Jill are the way they are towards each other. I really loved reading this book and have quickly become a fan of this author in the few books I have gotten to read so far!

Dares & Dice (Spicetopia #5) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Dares & Dice (Spicetopia Book 5)Dares & Dice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a huge fan of this series. Every time a new book comes out I lounge on the couch and can usually finish it in a day or two. Dares & Dice was no different. Phoebe Alexander hit the jackpot when she started this series. I absolutely love it. Dares & Dice is book # 5 and each book is better then the last!

This book is about two sets of people. Makenna is there with her maid of honor and 3 bridesmaids while Ty is there with his best man and 3 groomsmen. What are the odds they will break up into teams for a scavenger hunt? Well they do and they decide 5 groups of 2 would make up the teams. I love the 2 main characters Makenna and Ty. They are both set to get married in the next few weeks but, is it really what they want? Ty has some secrets about who he really is and it will come out eventually. I thought Ty and Makenna were both 2 strong characters. Makenna is such a good girl and her fiancé has no idea how good she really is.
Makenna and Ty get very close during the hunt but then it is cut short and they don’t get to say goodbye. Will they have another chance meeting? I was appalled by what Makenna finds out when she gets back from her honeymoon. This was such a great read and an awesome addition to the series. I can’t wait to see if there are any more books. Dares & Dice can be read as a stand-alone.

Bottomed Out (Moto X Series Book 4) by Brooke May – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Bottomed Out (Moto X Book 4)Bottomed Out by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bottomed Out by Brooke May is such a great read. I enjoyed this book from the first page. I loved how strong of a character Jax is. He definitely defied the odds. He may not have his dream career but he has a great job and is great at it. His friends cheered him on every step of the way.
When every thought he couldn’t do it, he did it and did it well.

He was always a stud but now, his luck has changed. When he meets Lennox, his luck changes. Jax and Lennox have chemistry right away. The only issue is her brother!!! He tries everything. He’s a very overprotective brother but, is Jax willing to give up and let him win?
I loved the characters in this book and I loved the storyline.
This was a great feel good read to show the average person , no matter what happens, you can always overcome just about anything.

Not So Far (Love Grows Series Book 3) by Renee Regent – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Not So Far (Love Grows series Book 3)Not So Far by Renee Regent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not so Far by Renee Regent was a great read. The book had me hooked from the very beginning. Silas has to return home to get together with his cousin and sell off their grandfathers property / home. While he is there, he decides to meet up with a friend who currently works with a woman he spent a summer with about 20 years ago. She was always the one who got away and she felt the same about him. I absolutely love second chance romance books and this one was great!
Silas doesn’t know if she will even see him. When they meet up, the chemistry is still there. They both have feelings for each other even though there are secrets….soooo many secrets! What will happen when all the secrets have been exposed. Will they be able to see past them and move on once they have the answers? I love the characters in the book! Cannot wait for more from this author.

Perfect by Tricia Copeland – Review by Michelle Mulvey

PerfectPerfect by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Perfect by Tricia Copeland was a different kind of book then I am used to. It was kind of weird reading about her with different men and then the story ends. I wasn’t really expecting that even though the description said she takes different paths to find the perfect man.
I thought the book was well written. I feel like I get into a part and then pow! On to another. Not sure how I feel about that. LoL I did enjoy the book but, the ending??? Come on now! I have a feeling, I know who she ends up with from a few lines in the last few pages “ rain or shine” and his sparkling eyes. But then, what about “ from one end of the earth to the other” I dunno. I wasn’t really into how the book ended. I was rooting for Chase or Liam but, who know who it was. I wish the author gave us a bit more at the end.

Forgotten Truth Trilogy: Book One (The Forgotten Trilogy 1) by Virginia Wine – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Forgotten Truth (Forgotten #1)Forgotten Truth by Virginia Wine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book 1 In The Forgotten Truth Trilogy. This is the first book I’ve ever read by this author and was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed reading this book and it kept me glued to my kindle from chapter 1. This book had everything one could want in a book. The chemistry between Nathan and Bryer was ridiculously hot. The book had lots of drama and suspense. There really is a lot going on in the book and you can miss some vital info if you don’t pay attention. I really like the 2 main characters but didn’t love the supporting character. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series
