5 out of 5 stars
Not so Broken is the first book in the Love Grow series written by Ms. Regent and it’s the first book that I have read by this author. The characters are well written and amazing and the things that they over come in this story made them feel real. The story line is different and amazing.

Tapped by Tarrah Anders
5 out of 5 stars
Wow this is my first read by Ms. Anders and I could not put it down it was hot hot hot… Tapped is written by Ms. Anders so I guess this is the third in this series so now I have to go back and read them. The characters are well written and get along so well with their different personalities and quirks.
Do you believe in second chances? How about new beginnings and commitment?

Janae and Kai where high school sweet-hearts and hasn’t seen him in over ten years. She hasn’t dated anyone since Kai and hasn’t had any desire to either. She manages the bar at the hottest co-ed revue in Las Vegas and the last person she expects to walk in, is now standing at her bar with her boss.
Kai leaves his life on the road to settle back home. He doesn’t expect to see his ex-girlfriend, the one woman that no one can compare to in his new place of employment. The one woman who left him without a real explanation, who broke his heart.
Kai and Janae give their romance a second chance, but Kai’s best friend from his road life comes to visit and it’s unclear if he has ulterior motives. Will Kai’s friend tear them apart or is their love solid?

Building Storm: (A Hawke Family Novel) (Hawke Family #4) by Gwyn McNamee

5 out of 5 stars

Building Storm is the fourth book in the Hawke Family series written by Gwyn McNamee and I have to say is WOW…. This is an emotional story about two broken people that have known loss and finding love again. Ms. McNamee’s writing is exceptionally good, the plot sucks you in from the first page and keeps you fully engrossed until the last page. Her characters are well developed and amazing, we even get to see some characters from the first three books and we see what they are up to.
Can two broken people make each other whole?
We read a little about Storm in the first few books…. Her life went up in flames when she lost the love of her life, all she has left is her daughter and ashes. The simple act of breathing is so excruciating, there are days she couldn’t get it together. She has no business being at the party that she doesn’t want to be at, and she definitely shouldn’t be in the arms of the handsome stranger.
Landon is broken for different reasons and he needs to get away from Chicago and the betrayal that shattered his world. He needs a new life-one without attachments. The vibrancy of New Orleans convinces himself it’s possible to start over. Yet in all the excitement of a new city, it’s Storm Hawke’s dark, sad beauty that draws him in.
She isn’t looking for love, and they both need a hot, sweaty release without feelings getting involved. So when his lips meet hers, and he breathes life into her for the first time since the day the inferno disintegrated her world. But loving again isn’t in the cards, and there are even greater dangers to face than trying to keep Landon McCabe out of her heart.
But even the best laid plans fail, and life can leave you burned….
You will need to read this story/series to find out about what happens to this amazing couple. I can’t wait to see what Ms. McNamee has in-store for us with her next installment of The Hawke family series.
I highly recommend this book/series.

The Way You Are (The Carolina Connections #5) by Sylvie Stewart

5 out of 5 stars

The Way You Are is the fifth book in the Carolina Connections written by Sylvie Stewart and I have read every book in this series and I loved them. Ms. Stewarts writing just gets better with each story/book. The characters are crazy but fun crazy that feed of the crazy. They are well developed and we even get to see our favorite couples from the first few books.
Brett MacKinnon, is a nice guy and a frequent resident of the friend zone. He has terrible taste in woman. So when Brett hears this tiny little girl with the booming voice he goes and talks to her. He is determined to ditch the friend zone and show her he is boyfriend material. Too bad the position’s already been filled by a ball-playing caveman who could flatten him with his pinky.
LIV: There are really only three things she needs in life: sex, baseball, and winning. Her hot boyfriend and season tickets take care of the first two, while she always do her best to cover the last. So developing an unexpected crush on a new friend is more than a little inconvenient. She doesn’t have anything but friendship to offer Brett, but with the way he looks at her, and makes her feel things he has her wishing she did.
BRETT: Has been put in the friend zone so often, they’ve got a sandwich named after him. You’d think he’d be used to it by now. But when it comes to the delectable Liv and he will pull out all the stops to show her he is the guy for her.
Can Brett get out of the friend zone what will it take for Liv to see him more than a friend? You will have to read this great book to find out.
I highly recommend this book/series…

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Book 2) by T. Birmingham – Review By Tracy Manderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Book 2) by T. Birmingham
5 out of 5 stars
Written in the stars is the second book in the Fallen Eagles MC written by Ms. Birmingham and my second read by this author. The characters are well written and I love how real this author made them real. The plot was great even if a little sad with few little twists.
Davis “Eagle” Landon has given up a lot for his country an eye, a leg, time with his kids. He’s retired the owner of several businesses and the President of the Golden Trail, PA Veteran MC, Fallen Eagles, this former Texan has his roots firmly planted. He’s ready to settle down again, and only one woman will do.
Winter is different she is sensitive and a bit of a loner. She is quiet and often sarcastic. She’s also the owner of the best (and only) salon in town. As the youngest Markham, she’s seen firsthand the many struggles her older sisters have endured, and as much as the prospect scares her, she’s ready for a love that’s all her own. And, well… She might look like a fairytale to Eagle, but Winter has always preferred her men a little rough around the edges.
Winter has a darker history than anyone realizes, and with a serial murderer/rapist who doesn’t discriminate between males or females terrorizing the Philadelphia area, no one is safe.
Will Eagle find the serial murderer/rapist before he or she grabs Winter? Will they find their other half in each other? I really enjoyed this story and I hope the next installment is about Hammond and Autumn…

She might, be damaged but she is the kickass Second of the Fallen Eagles MC. She stuggles to just to get by each day. The only things that help are her veteran MC, the Fallen Eagles, her family, and long, quiet rides on the back of Lee’s bike.
Lee has his own share of war wounds, and struggles but none worse than the burden he’s taken on to see that the Kit he once knew finds herself again. He can’t seem to find the girl he loved she is keeping secrets and he is tired of being kept in the dark.
Now local soldiers, veterans, and their families start getting threats from a team of blackmailers, Kit’s shocking history is revealed. A twist that has Lee reeling and wondering if what they once had is even salvageable.
Will Kit finally tell Lee her secrets or will Lee have enough and walk away? You need to read this story to find out.

The Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard
5 out of 5 stars
The Crazy Yates is written by Kimberly Packard and it’s the first book that I have read by this author. The characters are amazing, the storyline is great and the description is awesome.
This is a short Christmas story about a family down on their luck but they have each other.
Callie Yates loved her family unconditionally, how she simply stepped up to the plate and did what had to be done for her family. She soon realizes how she also had lost herself and how she needed to be reminded of what a true family is and let them in.
I’m not going to say anything else because I don’t want to give anything away.
I really enjoyed this book and author and will be reading more by her.

5 out of 5 stars
Wow Awakening of a Soul Keeper is the prequel to the Soul keeper series written by Ms. Dubh is amazing and my first read by her. I love these kind of series and this book intrigued me so I had to read this book and I was glad that I did. The characters are amazing especially since all of the crap they are going through. I love the quirks these characters have and the storyline is amazing.
Theodora is thrust into a dangerous world of powerful beings and surrounded by treachery, lies and violence, when she accidentally discovers not only is her husband’s boss a vampire, but she is also his soul keeper and fated mate.

Lyzander is the leader of all vampires the last thing needs or wants is his soul. With so much on the line he can’t afford to be anything but vengeful and Theodora’s presence jeopardizes everything he is.

Now forced to stick close to her unwanted mate, Theodora struggles to keep hold of her sanity and her marriage as she discovers who and what she really is.
This book had me hooked, and I can’t wait to dive into the rest of this series, that and… This powerhouse read ends on a powerful cliffhanger… So I need me the next book in this series.
