IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3)

Anthology

This is a wonderful anthology full of great stories by amazing authors. Each of these stories give you something different from sweet romance to suspenseful romance, there is something for everyone in this collection. One of my favorite stories is Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance by Tamara Ferguson. I was captivated by this story. Harry and Eve met as teenagers and these two had already been put through so much that all I wanted for them is to be happy. This story had me on an emotional rollercoaster. To find out if these two can find their way back to each other after their careers took them on different paths. then this is a must read.

The Player by Jacquie Biggar is another one of my favorites. As a professional hockey player Roy was used to having his pick of women, but then one of those women turns into a stalker. Now he needs help cleaning up his image. Will he settle down and forget his bachelor ways? This story had me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen. All of these books have something special to offer. I highly recommend this box set.

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

FLOWERS IN DECEMBER TRILOGYFLOWERS IN DECEMBER TRILOGY by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Flowers in December Trilogy compelling and heartfelt trilogy.
Flowers In December a read that will move you. This is a heartfelt and compelling read about love, loss and grief and depending on your relationship with your own parents depending on how much you will get out of this book as we get to hear the story of Connor Norton a young man who goes on a surprising journey of self-discovery. The only fault I found with this was that I could have read so man more pages. Each of the character had their own part of the story to tell, even the tom cat had his part to play. Just like the other works I have read by this author a very enjoyable read overall.
Coming Home a read that will welcome you home. This a great story that even though has elements of Christmas it doesn’t need to read at that time of year. This is such a powerful story and deals with matters that not all find easy to read, the way the author manages to deal with it so gracefully in such a short number of pages will surprise you.
Second Chance a read that will bring flowers to your life. The emotions you will see in this story are so strong that they are palpable, you can almost taste the emotion. This is a compelling story and shows us what a truly amazing writer Jane Suen is.

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

FLOWERS IN DECEMBER TRILOGYFLOWERS IN DECEMBER TRILOGY by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Flowers in December Trilogy by Jane Suen contains the books Flowers in December, Coming Home, and Second Chance. This is a wonderful series and it is great to get it all in one set together. Flowers in December by Jane Suen is an honest, heartfelt story. Connor returns home after the death of his mother to get everything in order. He starts contemplating his life and the decisions he has made in his life. This hit home for me since I have lost a parent. There are a lot of steps that come with the loss of a close family member. As we age many of us question our decisions and where we are in life and this beautiful book caught all of that. I laughed and I teared up while reading. This book ran me through a range of emotions because of being honest and truthful.
Coming Home by Jane Suen is the sequel to Flowers in December. The story picks up with Connor returning to his childhood home for the holidays after the passing of his mother. I recommend reading the first book because it goes into the background and the characters before delving into this story. This is an emotional read and proves it is good to return home sometimes. Connor is great and I like that he is dealing with loss but also moving on with his life. Mary Ann, Dottie, and Alana are great also. I really like the story and that there were some twists to break away from the expected. The book is a quick read and relatively short but impactful.
Second Chance by Jane Suen is the third and final book in The Flowers in December Trilogy. This can be read as a standalone but I think it better enjoyed if read with the other two books. Connor and Mary Ann had parted ways but Connor is back in town. Will Mary Ann allow Connor back into her life. This is happily ever after but the two have to go over some obstacles to get there. This is a sweet small-town romance that will have you rooting for the couple to find their path together. I enjoyed the characters and the progression of their story over the course of the series.

IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3) Anthology – Review by Rachel Moss

IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3)IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I only read two stories out of this anthology, Irresistible Valentine, and they were Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance by Tamara Ferguson and The Player by Jacquie Biggar. I was completely blown away by Ferguson’s short story! It was very emotional and dramatic and left you wanting a lot more than what you got! It was very fast paced as well, and super sweet. The Player was amazing as well! I loved the drama, and the chemistry, and I even laughed a little as well! Both of these stories were extremely well written, with some very dramatic occurrences that I wasn’t expecting at all from a romance anthology. I highly recommend this, both stories I read were absolutely incredible!

A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON (Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock ‘N Sweet Romance 3) By Tamara Ferguson – Review by Faith Jackson

A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON (Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock 'N Sweet Romance 3)A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a beautiful story about a singer Drew Kendall and a violinist star Marrielle McKinnon whose stories come together as one after sharing a kiss under the strawberry moon. Their future seems perfect but they’re headed in two different directions as she’s headed for the moon in Hollywood as he’s finishing his education but going into teaching.
After getting into it with his family, Drew’s plans change drastically as he has to drop out of college and heads to the army instead. After being injured, he doesn’t want to turn to Marrielle, afraid he’d burden her but can their love survive?
What I love about this story is it gives you hope for what love can be despite difficult terrains, twists and turns. I love how the characters find their way back to one another and find love in the darkest of times. It makes you believe if you’re not already personally attached in real life in love again and it’s worth it. This book shows the innocence of what love can be. Great read!

A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON (Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock ‘N Sweet Romance 3) By Tamara Ferguson – Review by Elizabeth Sanchez

A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON (Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock 'N Sweet Romance 3)A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Kiss Beneath a Strawberry Moon is the 3rd book in the Daydreams & Dragonflies series by Tamara Ferguson. It is a sweet romance, like most of her novels. I love reading them because they are quick and provide the warm fuzzies, but I felt this one ended too abruptly. This book follows the story of Marielle and Drew, and their love at first sight. Marielle is a singer, and Drew is a composer, both attending a musical summer camp. It would seem things would work out perfectly, but they came from different worlds. Marielle is a rising star, about to embark on a wonderful adventure. Drew is torn between going to college like his father wants, and chasing his dream of composing. After a falling out with his dad, Drew enlists in the military and is gone for years, while Marielle goes on tour. They are torn apart by the circumstances, and while I was happy with the ending, it was too soon. I wanted more details and for the story to continue.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My two favorite stories are by Tamara Ferguson and Jacquie Biggar

Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance: Tamara Ferguson

Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance by Tamara Ferguson is one of my favorite stories in this anthology. Ferguson wrote about a teenage couple Eve and Harry. They became close friends and it grew into a loving relationship. Now they had to split ways because they had different careers. Do you remember your high school sweetheart? Can you think about parting ways only to find your way back to them? Will Eve and Harry be able to rekindle their story? This story has a roller coaster ride of emotions. Enjoy Eve and Harry and their special story.

The Player by Jacquie Biggar

This love story is about Roy and Patience. Roy is a NHL player and he had a stalker. Now he was not able to play because of them. There was PA Patience, who helped him with his PR. All Roy wants is to play hockey. There was something innocent about Patience that peaked Roy’s interest. Can there be romance in the PA Patience and NHL Roy? Will Roy allow himself to love Patience? This is a short story but it is well written and captured my attention throughout the whole story.

A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON (Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock 'N Sweet Romance 3)A KISS BENEATH A STRAWBERRY MOON by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a sweet, quick read. I really liked Marielle and Drew. This is 3rd in the series and i didn’t feel lost but i will go back and read the first two as this was a great story.
They’re both attending music camp in one capacity or another, and they didn’t hit it off right away and later learn it was due to nerves of attraction.
As we move along in their lives, Drew goes to war and is injured and drops contact. But Marielle isn’t taking silence as an answer.
These two were great and I felt i could be friends with everyone in this story.

IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3) Anthology – Review by Jana Teppih

IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE (Irresistible Romance Book 3)IRRESISTIBLE VALENTINE by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Irresistible Valentine is pages and pages and hours upon hours of goodness aka it is the third instalment in the Irresistible Romance anthology series and is filled with Valentine stories by nine amazing writers – Tamara Ferguson, Natalie Ann, Suzanne Jenkins, Cynthia Cooke, Alicia Street, Jacquie Bigger, Stacy Eaton, Susan Jean Ricci and Patrice Wilton. I love anthologies as they give you a sample of multiple writers so it is a great way of discovering new writers! This is how I had already found quite a few of the writers who contributed to this anthology.
I will share my review for Tamara Ferguson’s Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance – she is my absolute favorite writer out of all nine writers here! I think I have read every single story she has written and I have not encountered anything that I would not love! Two Hearts’’ Reconnaissance is part of her Two Hearts Wounded Warrior romance series and it is the 13th!!!!!! instalment! (can you just imagine all the goodness you have to look forward to if this is your first encounter with her!) As you can imagine from the title of the series then the stories have a very serious subject matter but I promise you, they are filled with hope and we always get our happy ending!
Two Hearts’ Reconnaissance gives us Eva Loughlin and Harry Giordano who has survived a lot! (Have a box of tissues at hand! You will need it from the start!) There is this amazing connection between them since the moment they met when they were just kids! Life takes them into different directions and as it is with living, there are ups and downs and thorough it all we keep our fingers crossed for a chance for them to find a way back to each other! I also loved learning more about some of the characters that I have read about in the other stories.
There were three writers in the anthology that were new for me and it was Jacquie Biggar’s story the Player that took the cherry! I love sports stories (especially hockey ones) and Jacquie gives us Roy who gets sidelined from NHL thanks to his stalker ex so he ends up needing some little help from a PA Patience … so you can imagine the good laughs and antics and aww moments she mixed up for us and to be frank, I think the story would have deserved to be longer! I for sure will keep my eyes open for more by Jacquie!
