TWO HEARTS UNLIKELY HEROES (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8) by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Robin Rankin

Two Hearts Unlikely Heroes (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance #9)Two Hearts Unlikely Heroes by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

TWO HEARTS UNLIKELY HEROES is the ninth book in the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance series by Tamara Ferguson.

This book has a little bit of everything, suspense, romance, humor, etc. more on the romance than the suspense of the previous books but it worked.

Sam is amazing, she’s a very strong woman who demands respect from her soldiers and she gets it. She has no idea what to expect when she meets Ben.

Ben is very much like the men we met before, but seems to be more in touch with his feelings and not scared of love.

I love the dogs in this series and want to see more of them and will keep my eyes out for the next book.

Rockin’ It Home: a Lawson Family Novel by Tracey Cramer-Kelly – Review by Robin Rankin

Rockin' It Home (Lawson Family #3)Rockin’ It Home by Tracey Cramer-Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rockin’ It Home is the third book in the Lawson Family series by Tracey Cramer-Kelly and I loved this book

Ben is trying to get his life together after hitting rock bottom. He doesn’t need much to he happy, put him on stage in front of a crowd is the easiest way. But the demands of being a recovering alcoholic while on the road touring are more than one person can and should handle. This is where Danielle comes in.

I enjoyed almost everything about Ben and Danielle’s story, especially how Rick Springfield is connected. This old lady has some fond memories of Mr. Springfield from my childhood and I did find myself getting a bit giddy thinking about him.

Ben has been through so much through this series and I’m so glad he finally removed his head and allowed himself to be happy since it’s much deserved.

Can’t wait for the next book in this series so I can find out what’s going on with the family.

King & Hunt: A Lust / Hate Story By Brienne Dubh – Review by Robin Rankin

King & Hunt: A Lust / Hate Story by Brienne Dubh

This was a true lust/ hate story, the chemistry between Chriatian and Gabby was crazy from the moment we met them. They hated each other with a strong passion and only played nice as a favor to his sister Amy who also happens to be her best friend. Neither of them realized this was the beginning of a new phase.

I couldn’t believe how quick of a read this book was. I think there could have been a little more to their story, not sure if I would have liked to see it more in the middle of the end.

I plan to keep an eye out for additional books by this author since she is new to me and liked this story.

FLOWERS IN DECEMBER TRILOGY: Flowers in December, Coming Home, Second Chance by Jane Suen – Review by Robin Rankin

FLOWERS IN DECEMBER TRILOGY: Flowers in December, Coming Home, Second Chance by Jane Suen

Each of these stories got to my feels in a way that I had to process my thoughts and feelings before I could move forward.

Conner deals with a lot of different emotions in each of the books. The first is guilt after losing his Mother. Then of course he goes through all of the phases of grief which is a roller coaster of emotions l. You hit the peaks and valleys of the different feelings sometimes simultaneously, especially when dealing with the loss of a parent or strong a parental figure.

I have lost my Daddy and a close Mother type figure in my life and could relate all too well to his emotions and how there were some days he just made it through on auto pilot.

I enjoyed all of the books but think the last was my favorite. Conner finds happiness in his day to day life which isn’t easy without the additional challenges he faced.

REWIND Boxed set (Rewind Series Books 1-4) By Rowan Shaw – Review by Robin Rankin

Rewind Boxed SetRewind Boxed Set by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

REWIND BOXED SET (BOOK 1-4) by Rowan Shaw. In this set you get the first four books of this amazing series and I couldn’t get enough of the couples and their stories.

I’m not sure which one of the stories I loved more. Each story was different, in the way the couples meet and the problems they have trying to find their happiness but the one thing they have in common was they all fell deeply in love and were able to have a happy life.

I love how the author spotlights the love each one of the characters has for their partner and how even when they are shunned by family they learn what an amazing and supportive group of friends they have.

Each one of the characters will end up leave a piece of themselves with you. Thankfully you will see them recurring throughout the series.

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

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

The Runaround: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy is the sixth book in the Carolina Connections by Sylvie Stewart.

It felt so good to catch up with the gang and see how everyone is doing and to meet new people. I love Lola! She was t at all what she seems at the beginning. Her personality comes out the better we get to know her and she’s a spunky one!

Jax needed to have his butt handed to him and thankfully it happened. I don’t understand why some guys are so dumb but they are and our job as women to educate them no matter the age of the female.

Ari is what I want my younger daughter to be like. Strong and independent, cautious with love but not so cautious she misses out on it. I love her Family and hope we see more if them in the future. (HINT, HINT!)

Loved this book and this series. Hope they don’t go anywhere anytime soon.

Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley – Review by Robin Rankin

Covert Threat (Gray Ghost #5)Covert Threat by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Covert Threat by Amy McKinley is the fifth book in the Gray Ghost series.

This was the perfect book for me. It kept me guessing and revising what I thought was going to happen next and who was responsible for all of the weird stuff happening to Jules. I had a partially correct guess about a third of the way through but I whiffed on a few important details and I was totally okay with that.

I wish I could find someone like Trev to save me the way he saves Jules. Holy cow! But seriously, he is hot, a good guy and willing to anything to protect Jules.

If your looking for a book that will keep you guessing during the twists then I highly recommend this book.

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay – Review by Robin Rankin

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

Taming Zane by Lisa Lanay is the second book in the Almost Perfect Series.

The moment I saw that Shannon was a Chicgo native I wondered if she was a Cubs fan (Go Cubs Go!) or a Sox fan. That question was answered when I least expected it.

We see Zane in different aspects of his life. A fun loving incle who loves his nieces and nephews, a single man enjoying life and as a romantic which I wasn’t expecting at all, but I totally swooned when I read that chapter.

This second book in the series had none of the let down you might see from a newer author. Looking forward to keeping up with her and see how her writing evolves as she gains experience.

REBOUND (REWIND BOOK 4) By Rowan Shaw – Review by Robin Rankin

Rebound (Rewind #4)Rebound by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

REBOUND is the fourth book in the Rewind series by Rowan Shaw.

Noah’s life is turned upside down when his long time boyfriend Hugo ends their ten year relationship. Thankfully Noah has his friendship with Adrien and with the help of his friend he starts putting his life back together.

I love who Noah ended up with and think they make a perfect couple and I don’t know where to start with my joy over this new couple.

I found myself getting very emotional during the book and think its because I get so attached to the characters I love and this is a group I’m totally in love with and I think of the reason is because they aren’t what society would consider normal, but the depth of love they each have for their partner is beautiful. If only all couples were so loving to one another.

I’m hoping this is a series that doesn’t end any time soon.

Landing the Lawman (Hills of Texas #5) by Kadie Scott – Review by Robin Rankin

Landing the Lawman (Hills of Texas, #5)Landing the Lawman by Kadie Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Landing the Lawman is the fifth and pretty sure the final book in The Hills of Texas series by Kadie Scott.

Carter finally got her story and I love it. I don’t know if Logan is the type I would have put her with but it so worked. They started as coworkers, then worked their way up to friends and after several years they stop fighting the tension.

Logan is more than you expect and see at the beginning. A lot of what he does and decisions he makes all come from trying to escape a painful past.

I’m not sure which I loved more, the Hill family or the fact the live here in Texas and even have some time in Austin which is a city near and dear to my heart even with all of the construction we have.

Hope the Hills make an appearance in the future, but even if they don’t I know their stories ended perfectly.
