Battling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother Romance by T. Christensen
5 stars

This was by far one of the best step-brother books I’ve read. It was different yet connectable. I felt close to Greer and went through the emotions just like she did.
I wished we’d have gotten a little more of Beckett, but what we did get was great.
Lots of drama, its high school of course, internal battles and also some mystery.
If you like step romances, this is for you and even if you don’t, its not your average story.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This fast paced contemporary romance kept me engaged from beginning to end. The characters felt relatable and were easy to connect to. The themes were universal and felt relevant even if I’m far removed from this high school setting. Emotional and riveting, I enjoyed the character detail and the pacing. This was a first look into works by this author and I look forward to reading more from her.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first got the book Calling the Curveball (a Lawson Family Novel) by Tracey Cramer-Kelly, I didn’t think that it was a series. However the ending of the book kind of sets the stage for a next one to take place. I enjoyed this book so much that I hope there is another one to follow because I want to see what happens after reading the last chapter of this one. Jamie Lawson has always dreamed of being a pro baseball player and he was heading in the direction of making that happen. Unfortunately his life took in one instant when there was a wreck that left him injured and his wife dead. Since the accident 6 years ago he has made a life for himself even though he still lives with guilt and regret. Kira Walker has come into town to spend the summer with her sister, and on a whim of courage she ask Jamie out to a date. Reading about these two coming together and seeing the possibilities of a future relationship bloom between them was amazing. There was so much emotion in the pages of this book with not only Jamie and Kira but also their family and friends. This book put some things into perspective for me in my own life. This is a journey of hurt, guilt, love, and forgiveness. Definitely add this one to your reading list.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this contemporay romance story. It is a well written story that is fast reading as well as engaging. Beckett and Greer are characters that are connectable as well as made the story realistic. They took me on an emotional roller coaster that kept me turning pages fast. Greer finds herself in a new home and new school but problem, Beckett doesn’t want her in either places. She is confused why she feels drawn to him. I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next.

Battling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother Romance
By: T. Christensen
5 out of 5 stars

The story Battling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother Romance by T. Christensen is a contemporary/sports romance book. It is a story that will pull you in from the beginning and it didn’t let me go until I had read the final page. I loved reading about the characters of Greer and Beckett. Greer has had her life changed when she moves into a mansion. She is going to a new school and has to deal with Beckett who is not welcoming. Beckett is at the top of the private school he attends. He doesn’t make Greer feel welcome either in the home they both live in or at school. Even with the tension that is between them Greer feels an attraction to Beckett. What does the future hold for Beckett and Greer? Will Beckett be more welcoming to Greer? Will Greer act on her attraction to Beckett? Read this book to find out. I grew to care about Greer with each chapter that I read and wanted her to be happy. Beckett is a character that takes a little bit to warm up to however I came to understand him and also wanted him to find happiness. There are additional characters that are introduced and many of them are good friends with Greer. I enjoyed reading about them. This is an amazing book that will have you hooked from the very beginning. I highly recommend reading it.

Hell Disguised as Heaven…

Greer’s circumstances radically change her senior year in high school. Moving from an apartment to a multimillion-dollar mansion should be an easy transition, but her soon to be step-brother makes it hell on earth.

Beckett is a football god and arrogant jerk. He makes it clear that Greer is not welcome in his home or his elite private school. And yet, she finds the battle with herself more confusing than the one with Beckett. Why is she drawn to him? Why does she see the good in him?

Even with all of the confusing and unexpected obstacles, Greer is determined to find a way to thrive and survive.

This book features an alpha hero and an introverted heroine in a high school setting, but it is meant for mature readers.

T. Christensen has been addicted to reading ever since she read her first romance book in middle school. When different characters and scenes started invading her brain she would write them down and put it away. Gradually she took the steps to give them a beginning, middle, and a happily ever after. It has been a long time dream to have her stories published.

T. has been a lifelong resident of South Dakota. Occasionally she ventures out, but being at home, with her family, is always the best place to be. Reading a romance novel is still the best reward at the end of the day.

Striking Out…

Jamie Lawson always believed he’d make it to baseball’s big leagues, but when a tragic accident leaves him maimed, and his wife dead, Jamie heads back to his small Minnesota hometown with his dreams shattered. Six years later, he’s opened his own chiropractic clinic, but guilt and grief still haunt him. The closest he comes to baseball these days is coaching little league and umpiring for the town’s Fourth of July softball tournament. He certainly doesn’t have room in his life for the pretty stranger who shows up at the tournament and then boldly asks him on a date.

The Boys—and Girls—of Summer

After an ugly divorce, grade school teacher Kira Walker needs a break to reassess her life and come to terms with being single. Spending the summer with her sister, she attends the holiday softball tournament. But how can she keep her mind on the game—and her goals—when the umpire is such a distraction? She might be up for a summer fling if it was with Sexy Umpire Man.

Sliding into Home…

Kira’s got her own share of past hurts, but as the summer—and the romance—heats up, her playful nature coaxes Jamie into rediscovering parts of himself he thought he’d buried with his wife. Kira has thrown Jamie a curveball. Will he let her walk, or will he embrace the possibility that his glory days just might be in the future, with Kira?

English cricket captain, Mathew Anderson is a star, both on and off the pitch. But a smart, mouthy teacher just might be the one to make him see that he’s only a man.

Mathew has enjoyed the life as a cricket superstar. With fame, fortune, adoration, and a beautiful girlfriend that comes with the territory. Until he’s been accused of domestic abuse and he’s arrested. Now, Mathew is very careful about the people he surrounds himself with. Especially women. Then Rose Cavendish tweets him and he can’t help but get bowled by her simplicity, honesty, and grit.

As a teacher surviving a vicious break-up, the last thing Rose needs is a man holding sway over her life. Rose knows she’s way out of her league getting involved with the red-haired English skipper. Even though Mathew is kind and a perfect gentleman, she doesn’t know that he hates being kept in the dark. All she knows is that she has fielded before in this game of love and lost big. She doesn’t intend to do that again.

But when Mathew plays an inning, he only plays to win. And when he gets a second chance, he’s going to play an inning of a lifetime to win Rose back.

Romance author Brooke May spends her days writing whatever her overactive imagination has brewed up and her evenings reading while she works alongside her mom. Telling stories is second natural to her, from a young age she has told anyone who would listen what she had thought up. Now, a mom of two, she splits her time writing, playing with her kids, and of course, hiking, hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling in her beloved Bighorn Mountains.

While on maternity leave with her youngest, Brooke was putting laundry away when she looked at a poem she had written in high school that was framed in her son’s bedroom. That poem triggered the idea of My Cowboy and soon she was sitting in front of her computer with her infant next to her writing her first love story that wasn’t a fanfiction.
