Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2)Taming Zane by Lisa Lanay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this read. It was a happy, fun, sweet read! Shannon and Zane were perfect for each other. Zane is a smoking hot plastic surgeon who travels the world to donate his time to others who are in need. Shannon is close with her family…much closer then you can imagine. Her and her brothers all love within feet of each other. Shannon is flying to California for an interview for a grant. When some sexy stud sits next to her on the plane, she doesn’t know how she will get through her flight. Lucky for her, Zane is a really nice guy and is down to earth. They spend some of the flight getting to know each other and Zane gives Shannon her number so she can give him a call and he can get the name of a real estate agent his brother used. If the interview goes well, Shannon will be moving there for a little bit.

Luckily for Shannon, she finds Zane’s number and decides to call him when she she’s out shopping and realizes her wallet is not in her tote bag. Did she leave it in a store or did someone take it out of her bag? Zane is there for her In a heartbeat and let’s her stay at his place while she tries to figure out a plan. Zane and Shannon are perfect for each other but, Shannon doesn’t plan on moving from her family and Zane has patients who wait months for an appointment with him.

How can something so long distance work?
You have to read this book and see if they are able to
Overcome the distance.
I thought this book was just an all around great read with great writing and a great storyline that will grab your attention and keep it from the first chapter.

THE RUNAROUND: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy (CAROLINA CONNECTIONS BOOK 6) By SYLVIE STEWART – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Runaround (Carolina Connections #6)The Runaround by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book from page one. You always know within the first 2 chapters in your going to love or hate the book. I should’ve known before I started reading that I was going to love it. Sylvie Stewart has had me hooked from the first book I’ve read of hers. I can add this to my list of faves by her.

Jax finds out he has a daughter but she isn’t a young little girl. She’s a teenager! How do you expect a teenage girl to react finding out she has a dad whom she has never met before. Jax keeps trying but, Lola wants nothing to do with him.

Jax reaches out to Ari who he knows thru mutual friends. Ari has an awesome voice and becomes Lola’s voice teacher. Jax knows getting Ari involved could be risky because there is a lot of sexual tension between them. Ari worked on creating a website for Jax last year and it was a miracle he got thru it without throwing her down.

Ari and Jax try to be friends but they both imagine more happening between them. What will happen when they slip up and give into temptation? Will it be a one time thing like Jax is used to or will he not be able to get enough. How will Lola react? Will Lola ever see Jax as her dad or will she always have the teenage attitude? I felt bad for Jax throughout the book because he tried hard to get to know Lola but she blamed him for not being around even though he had no idea about her until that phone call from her mom.

I look forward to more books by this author. I love her work. You don’t want to skip by this great read. Grab your copy today.

Set it Free (Fallen Eagles MC Book 3) by T. Birmingham – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Set it Free (Fallen Eagles MC Book 3)Set it Free by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well well well, The Markham sisters are back and ready for a fight. This is book 3 in the series and is all about Spring. I loved Summer ( Kit ), I loved Winter but neither of them compare to Spring and the demons she fights on a daily basis. A lot of the same characters reappear in book 3 so that’s a plus! I love this group of characters and cannot wait for more.

This book shows how someone fights an addiction and what they go through on a daily basis. An addiction is t something one can control and risks losing everything they have. Then addiction can cause one to lose their family, significant other, job, ect. Some struggle more then others.

This book has you feeling a lot of feels. There’s some heartache, some happiness, lots of action and of course suspense.
I highly recommend you read this book but, you should definitely read the series in order.

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Fat Girl's Guide to Loving Your BodyThe Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This author has been one of my favorite authors for quite sometime. This wasn’t one of my favorites by her but, I thought this book was ok. This book can be very helpful for just about anyone. There’s a lot of useful information and processes that if understood and followed one can learn how to love themselves. The author has a few pages where she wants you to keep a journal and gives you assignments.
This book isn’t just for the “ fat girls “ the book touches on a lot of different body images. It’s just a way to help you learn to love yourself.

Second Chance (The Flowers In December Trilogy, book 3) by Jane Suen – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Second Chance (Flowers in December #3)Second Chance by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Second Chance: The Conclusion of the Flowers in December Trilogy by Jane Suen was a good read. Connor and Mary Ann have had their share of heartache and confusion. Now that Connor has decided to quit his job and leave the big city will he and Mary Ann be able to pick up where they left off or is to late for them to have a happy ending. I enjoyed reading about this couple and the obstacles they were faced with. What will happen when they are face to face again after so many months of silence. Mary Ann is one of my favorite characters. She’s just the average down to earth, hard working girl just looking for love. You won’t be disappointed reading this trilogy

Amy’s Santa (Satan’s Devils MC Second Generation #1) By Manda Mellett – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Amy's Santa (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #1)Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Amy’s Santa is the first book I’ve read by this author and I enjoyed the book. I wasn’t sure exactly what was going to happen after reading about when Amy has no choice but to leave the compound and flee to Phoenix.
Amy and Drew were always attached at the hip growing up. Unfortunately, there were to many years between them so they were unable to bring their relationship past friendship. As the years went on the feelings were there for both of them but that didn’t matter.
When Amy walks in to catch Drew in a compromising position, she knows she need to get away…far away! She decided to go away to school and become a nurse. Now she is coming home for the holidays and brings one of her good friends home with her. Amy doesn’t know where should would be today if it weren’t for Xander. He saved her….rescued her when she needed him to. She knows by going home to spend time with her dad and the rest of the MC family is going to be hard. She is a shell of the person they know her to be. She’s carrying a secret and she is afraid if anyone finds out her secret they will blame her.
Xander is cornered by Amy’s dad Heart ( Amy’s Dad ) and has no choice but to come clean and tell him what the problem with Amy is all about.
Will Amy’s dad understand what happened and stand behind his little girl?
What will happen when Drew and Amy see each other. Will seeing Amy light a fire under him? Will Drew finally settle down or with the club president remain single?
I thought this was a good book. I’m not a fan of MC books because I can’t deal with trying to remember who is who but this book wasn’t so hard.

Naughty & Nice (Spicetopia #4) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Naughty & NiceNaughty & Nice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Naughty & Nice by Phoebe Alexander is book 4 in the Spicetopia series and definitely my favorite in the series so far. Micah and Natalie couldn’t be any more opposite. Sometimes opposites attract though right?
Natalie is the event planner and she is currently planning the biggest event to happen at Spicetopia. Cy and Jolie’s wedding!!! Very exciting. We have watched these two grow since book one. They have had a lot of stuff happen to them and those around them but, it has only made them stronger.

Micah is the person who will marry the happy couple and he comes in about a week early. What is a man of the cloth to do in an “Adult Only” amusement park? Well Natalie and Micah become quite close and she shows him around the park. The first 2 days or so, they stick to the calmer things for Micah to see. Then a challenge is made for him to let loose and not be so closed minded. All bets were off after that. Natalie and Micah got to spend some time together as two average people. Not an event planner and a minister.

Everything should be happy and wonderful with this big wedding about to happen but, Mr and Mrs Sweet were there and problems started occurring. Natalie planted some seeds in their heads and it was up to them to listen to what she said or ignore it. Things couldn’t go on the way they were.

This author has become one of my “go-to” authors. She gives us alittle romance, heat, drama, and of course some bumps in the road.

Courage of Us (Code of Honor Book 1) by Brooke May – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Courage of UsCourage of Us by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Courage of us by Brooke May was an absolute great read. I was hooked from the very first page. The author gives the reader happy parts, sad parts and funny parts. This book has it all. I almost felt like I knew the characters.

Duke and Patience have been best friends forever. Their parents are best friends and they used to bathe Duke and Patience together when they were younger. Patience has no female friends but her group of guys are all she needs. Duke and Patience obviously have a stronger bond but all of them protect her as if they are her older brothers.
They have graduated and most of the guys are all headed off in the next few days to different branches of the military.
Patience chooses one special night to confess to Duke that her feelings run much stronger then friendship. The only problem with that is, when she wakes up he is gone. She doesn’t know if she ruined her friendship with her best friend over one crazy night or what.

Duke hides the fact that he too is joining the military. He doesn’t tell Patience his plans. Now he has been away for 7 years and has thought of her every single day since he left. He can’t believe she went and married the loser she was dating even after the night they spent together.

When Duke finally comes home for good, he runs into Patience that first night. Can they pick up where they left off or is their friendship gone after what he did to her? A lot has happened in the last 7 years. Patience has baggage, Duke has baggage, lots of secrets. So much has happened. Will their chemistry they always had get them back to where they should be or is 7 years just to long to be away from each other.

I absolutely loved this book. Patience is one strong girl who can do anything she sets her mind to.

Running In Snow: A Holiday Novella by Renee Regent – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Running In Snow, A Holiday NovellaRunning In Snow, A Holiday Novella by Renee Regent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

2 short novellas by Renee Regent will leave you with a smile on your face. Both of these novellas are sweet happy reads just in times for Christmas that you will love

Noelle has had a rule to never celebrate Christmas since she was a little girl. She never does gift exchanges with friends or coworkers but this year she was invited to her boyfriends family celebration. She feels a bit uncomfortable for a little while until the moment arises and she goes running. To many memories are brought back to the surface and she cannot handle it. Will she make it back to Logan and have a happy ending or was this trip a big mistake. Loved this book. Loved the characters…and you will too!

Eve’s Hope
Last year Eve had a horrible New Year’s Eve so this year she plans on staying home in comfy clothes watching an X-Files marathon. Now she finds herself bundled up in her warmest clothes including a parka because she has no heat and no one is able to come fix it for her. Suddenly, her hot neighbor knocks on the door and invites her over to his house for a little get together. She wants to decline because it is a last minute invite but at least he has working heat.
The last person she expects to see over at Kirks house is a guy she had spent a night with not to long ago. She tries hiding from him but somehow he found her and was harassing her about getting together again. Can this New Year’s Eve get any worse? Sure it can but it can also get a lot better.

2 great reads you will be glad you read. Renee Regent is an amazing author and these novellas are no different from her great writing style.

Summer Break: A Joe Football Novella by Autumn Sand – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Summer Break: A Joe Football NovellaSummer Break: A Joe Football Novella by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summer Break by Autumn Sand is a great Novella. This series should be read in order to get the full story of what is going on. This is a continuation of Favor and Brice. It’s a couple I have grown to love. They have not had an easy time but any obstacles have brought them closer together with a stronger bond.
While on summer break they find out some information that can tear their group of close knit friends apart. I’m dying right now worrying about what will happen.
I have been a huge fan of this author since the first book I’ve read of hers. This series is a bit different from what I’ve read of hers but, I love it and cannot wait to see what happens next.
