Be One with Me (Finding Love in Green Springs Book 2) by CA Miconi

I had been waiting for this book since I had enjoyed the first so much and I wasn’t disappointed at all. I think I might have liked this book more than the first. Barbara definitely had a hand in that.

We finally get Nolan and Sally’s story. From how they met to how they came to be together. I knew there was a bit of a love hate between them but now all of my questions were answered about them.

I cannot recommend this book enough, there were just so many sweet moments throughout the book. Don’t know which is my favorite, but there are a few competing.

This book can be read as a standalone, but I’m one of those people who prefer to read books in a series in order. Hope you give this great couple a chance to tell you their story.

Irresistible Weddings (Irresistible Romance Book 4) Anthology – Review by Robin Rankin

IRRESISTIBLE WEDDINGS (Irresistible Romance Book 4)IRRESISTIBLE WEDDINGS by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

IRRESISTIBLE WEDDINGS (Irresistible Romance Book 4) Anthology

This was so refreshing to read right now. Things aren’t currently in the best place and it was so easy to lose myself in the stories of romance and weddings.

The one story I’m going to spotlight is the first book Two Hearts’ Alliance by Tamara Ferguson.

I think I have read all of the books in her Two Hearts Wounded Warrior series and I have loved each and every one and this was no different. I love how the spotlight is on soldiers who were injured while protecting us while they rehab and try to figure out their next step is.

Christine and Jeremy are no different. They connect the moment they’re introduced, but the timing was off. They meet up further down the road and the sparks are still there.

There wasn’t a lot of angst or back and forth with this couple and it was so nice to have something happy to take my mind away from life.

Love and happiness is something that is much needed right now and I got a lot of that with this anthology.

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay

I can’t believe we are already five books into this series. This book had me trying to speed read to see what happened next and I was not disappointed.

It was nice to see what was going on with this group and see how their lives are changing.

This is was the type of book to keep you at the edge of your seat waiting to find out what happens next. From the party at the beginning to the very end you are involved and unable and unwilling to extract yourself from the story.

This is a great series and cannot recommend it enough.

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race

What a sweet story! I loved how Adam was the epitome of a Marine. He was well mannered, respectful, honorable and is still a Marine though he’s retired. As someone who works with a lot of military I was happy to see she got that part right.

Melinda is enjoying her new life as a Matchmaker. She had no idea when she went to the wedding of one of her couples that her life is going to change for the better.

This was an incredibly sweet story between Adam and Melinda. They both have scars and are learning to live their new lives. I really enjoyed this story and would love to see more of the Matchmaker’s successful couples.

Girl Trap (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 3) by Cynthia Hamilton

This series gets better with each book and this is now my favorite of the series. I was sitting at the edge of my seat flipping pages as fast as I could just to find out what was going to happen.

Mike and Madeline are working separately for the first time since opening up their agency. Mike’s in LA helping his cousin while Madeline is in San Louis Obispo trying to track down a daughter who doesn’t want to be found. I liked Madeline from the beginning but I think I love her now. She is a bad chick and not afraid of anything at this point. And holy cow, what about Mike!? He moved up the ladder a lot after reading this.

Two very determined people will get things done and they certainly do here. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend you give it a read.

Forgotten Chance: Book Three (Forgotten Trilogy) by Virginia Wine

I’m sad to say bye to these characters, especially Clayton, he just appealed to me in a weird way. I hope they all pop up again in future books.

Wow, Nathan and Bryer can’t seem to catch a break. They move forward, only for the past to come back and remind them things aren’t as great as they thought, but they are also not as bad.

There are a few cities I love and two were in this book, and one is where I live. I’ve noticed that I pay closer attention to the details of the location when they’re here to make sure they get it right and Ms. Wine got it right.

The ending was perfect and I’m looking forward to see what she writes next.

Night Justice (A Chicago Vigilantes Novel Book 1) by India Kells

Oh this series is one that I will be waiting impatiently for the next book to release. I have been a fan of Ms. Kells for a while now and now I’m a bigger fan because of this book. She nailed the darker suspense perfectly.

Orla has no fear and I love that about her. She has seen so much as an investigation journalist, including war so the streets of Chicago should be easy. Should be, but aren’t though the Vigilante is doing his part in making them safer.

We get to know the members of the this group and I’m so excited about this series.

Not So Far (Love Grows series Book 3) by Renee Regent

I really wanted to savor this book and and tried to read it a bit slower than I normally do. There was something about Audrey and her life that called to me and I felt a connection. We really don’t have much in common and I haven’t been able to figure it out.

Silas made his mistakes but when he finds himself back home after almost twenty years he decides to meet up with someone from his past. He has no idea what to expect, but what he does find out is beyond even a wild thought.

I really liked the way Audrey and Silas were together, could have been their age or the fact that they have learned how precious everything is.

I hope to see more of this series. I have really enjoyed each of the books and hope to enjoy more.

A High Price to Pay (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 2) by Cynthia Hamilton

This book did not disappoint me. I had some higher expectations of this book since it was the second book and inwas familiar with the author and she delivered and then some.

We pick up with Madeleine and Mike three years after the last book. They are official Private Investigators and ready to go once Madeleine is done with this over the top birthday party.

I’m usually pretty good about figuring out things before it’s revealed but this one had me stumped with a lot of changing of my mind and I loved it.

You can read this without reading the first but I would suggest you start at the beginning for background.

Forgotten Promise Book Two: The Forgotten Trilogy by Virginia Wine

This story picked up where the last ended and there was no letting up with what happens to Nathan and Bryer.

There is a lot that happens and of course there is still more to come in book three and I cannot wait to read it.

I really had a hard time putting this book down and even found myself reading at 3am because I couldn’t sleep. There is just something about Nathan and Bryer’s story that has drawn me in and I love them.

I’m curious to see how this all plays out with Nathan and Bryer as well as all the other forces around them and I NEED answers on Clayton and Gen.

This is just a great series. Lots of romance and suspense along with laughs and hard core flirting (Clayton and Gen).

Can’t wait to get started on the next one!
