Charnes is a new author to me and I was intrigued by the plot summary of this book. I’m very glad I picked it up as it was chock full of mystery and suspense. I enjoy a good story with plenty of detail and plenty of clues to unravel. I felt like the story unfolded well and kept me as a reader wanting to keep reading to find out what would happen next. Very well written. I’m glad to find that this is part of a series and look forward to reading more of it.
This is the second book in this series, it just keeps getting better. I was pulled into the story from the start and couldn’t put it down until the last page. Sydney and Blake are great characters and the emotional rollercoaster ride as well as the suspense, mystery they took me on you won’t want to miss. They have a past but will there be a second chance in their future? Survival is a race against time, will time run out?. I highly recommend reading the rest of their story.
I enjoyed this romance book. This is a new author for me and I will be looking for more books by her. I was pulled into the story right from the start. It is an engaging story that I read in one sitting. Kimberly has loved Jake since high school but she has always been the little sister. Now that he is back in town will she be able to convince him to give her a chance? I enjoyed them and watching the growth between them. They will keep you turning pages! I highly recommend their story.

Chasing Clay (The DeWitt Agency Files Book 3)
By: Lance Charnes
5 out of 5 stars
The story Chasing Clay (The DeWitt Agency Files Book 3) by Lance Charnes is a wonderful book to read. It takes you on a fast-paced journey that has twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. It had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I loved reading about the character of Matt Friedrich. He is a man that is smart, unpredictable, and very resourceful. Matt is an ex-con who is promised an early end to his probation if he can finish a job in 60 days. It involves Nam Ton ware that is being trafficked. Matt soon finds himself way over his head and having to think on the fly as a federal turf war has started. Will Matt learn where the pottery is coming from? Will he finish the job in 60 days? Will he earn the early release from his probation? What does the future hold for Matt? Read this book to find out. This is a story that hooked me in from the very beginning and didn’t let me go until the final page. There are other characters that are introduced and interact with Matt. Some of them are helpful to him, others have their own agenda, and then there are those who I wasn’t sure what their motives were. This book has a mystery that must be solved and if there is anyone that can do it, I believe the main character of Matt Friedrich is the one who can accomplish it. This is a story I would highly recommend reading.
Revive (Rewind Book 3) by Rowan Shaw. This book was amazing. It’s the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone. I suggest reading the others first because other characters do appear in this book from the others. This book is the story of Patrick Lefevre who lives in France and is a very successful Psychotherapist. Patrick loves his family, friend and hookups! No relationships, he doesn’t have time for that. When he meets newly divorced Brandon Smith who is out with his ex and her friend they have an immediate connection. After talking for awhile they hook up and its amazing. Only Brandon doesn’t realize that Patrick is his new Therapist and his first appointment is tomorrow. Also throw in Brandon’s problem not being open about being bisexual and Patrick’s huge dislike for bisexuals there are kinks all over the place. Patrick realizes his feelings for Brandon are deeper than a one night stand but will all the red signs stop him from even trying. Brandon is also a single dad who may have to leave France for his daughter. This was such a fun read. Full of steamy scenes, emotions and love! Read Revive you won’t be disappointed!
Fire & Ice is the 3rd instalment in the sexy, erotic Spicetopia Series by Phoebe Alexander. This book can be read as a stand-alone although I’d recommend that you read books 1 and 2 first as it will give a better understanding of what Spicetopia is all about and how the idea for it was created.
In this book, Spicetopia (a theme park for adults) is getting ready to open when it becomes clear that someone is out to sabotage the park. Head of Security Neve Romano and Head of PR Enya Moore have to try find out what is going on and to stop word spreading. Unfortunately Neve and Enya do not get on with each other but when thrown together things become rather heated between the two.
I absolutely loved the interactions between the 2. They could not be any more different if they tried. Enya babbled and talked non-stop, whereas you were doing well if you got more than a few words out of Neve. Can Enya, who is fiery and full of life melt the Iceman?
In the 2nd book there is much emphasis on swinging, whereas in Fire & Ice there is much more emphasis on BDSM but in a monogamous relationship. Let’s just say that the sexy times in this book are smoking hot! You’ll be needing a fan or a cold shower to calm you down. Having read many books by Phoebe Alexander now I can say with much confidence that she writes a damn fantastic erotic story.
I’m looking forward to finding out what she has in store for us in the 4th book Naughty & Nice.
Rowan Shaw has brought to life another beautiful and sweet couple that I just couldn’t get enough of in Revive. I might be a bit odd but I enjoy the premise of the story. Something about the situation makes it seem so much more realistic and I love reading about how things go down. The first two books in the series were a bit heavier reads as far as subject matter so this was also nice to have a bit more of an airy and light tone to it.
Brandon and Patrick really make Revive shine. These two had no idea that the one night stand that blew their minds would come full-circle the way it does. How do you keep a professional mind about your therapist when you realize you slept with them??? As you can imagine this left room for laughter and some pretty hefty emotions too. It was a well balanced though and I enjoyed the way I felt as if I was there with the characters. Shaw really can build up a scene and make you feel like you went on a magical adventure. I look forward to seeing what will come next from Rowan Shaw!
Once again I am in awe at an Alliance Agency book from the super talented ladies, Maddie Wade and India Kells. These two are some of my favorite romance authors so seeing them team up to bring us the books in this series is really a neat treat that I have devoured and enjoyed immensely. I look forward to seeing what these books will bring for us. I happened to read them out of order but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the books. I can see where it would be a benefit though just for story enrichment on my end if I were to go back and read them in the right order sometime, which I plan to do so.
Knight Watch brings us the story of Kingsley and Sydney. I really loved these two together and separately. The story is a fast paced one full of adventure and drama to break up the seriously sexy romance that is playing throughout. Kingsley has found himself in America seeking a fresh start with the Alliance Agency. How can his first case go anything but right? Will he be able to handle things or fold under the pressure? Sydney has been battling her past again when when she happens upon the man who could change everything and save her. Will she be able to accept his love and support or will her past ruin her chance at any happily ever after? I can’t wait to see what we will get with book three! I am sure that I will love it just as much as the first two.
