REVIEW: SUMMER RAIN (LIGHTNING STRIKES) BY BARBARA FREETHY

Summer RainSummer Rain by Barbara Freethy

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars




Just like me to come in on the tail end of a series. Summer Rain has a touch of mystical mystery blended with a hint of romance. I received an ARC of Summer Rain in exchange for an honest review. The high stakes world of Washington D.C. is a great location for a story about corruption, murder and secrets. Dani lands herself right in the center of a paradox. Secret agendas. mysterious deaths and attempted murders follow Patrick and Dani in their quest for long awaited answers. Barbara Freethy has an intriguing mind. Her stories are the perfect playground for adrenaline junkies who thrive on cryptic suspense and breath catching reveals. 3.5 stars

REVIEW:  BAREFOOT AT MOONRISE (BAREFOOT BAY TIMELESS) BY ROXANNE ST. CLAIRE

Barefoot at Moonrise (Barefoot Bay Timeless, #2; Barefoot Bay Universe, #16)Barefoot at Moonrise by Roxanne St. Claire

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Thanks to youthful immaturity we all have that one moment of regret that follows us into adulthood. Wishing we could right a wrong from our past. A high school reunion, a long overdue apology and one shocking event leaves Ken Cavanaugh and Beth Endicott in a place neither expected to be. On the brink of a second chance. Ms. St. Claire is in no way stingy with the romance. The only difference I see between her Barefoot Bay Timeless and her other Barefoot Bay novels is that the connections are deeper and the ability to forgive and admit mistakes is more readily followed through on. Of course there are still lessons to be learned at any age but the ability to accept one's own faults becomes a little easier with maturity. Whether 20 or older love is never easy. Age is irrelevant. Barefoot Bay at Moonrise is a wonderful footprint for love at any age.

SYNOPSIS

From the bestselling author of Welcome to Forever (“Full of heart and emotion!”—Lori Wilde) comes a sweet, sexy novel about breaking all the rules. In Seaside, North Carolina, the boys on the base are heroes—but that doesn’t mean they’re always well-behaved.

As a preacher’s daughter, Valerie Hunt only dates the very respectable, very boring men who meet her father’s strict standards. In private, however, she leads a double life as a romance writer of steamy stories about the least respectable sorts of men. Valerie has always kept her hottest fantasies separate from her real life, but when she nearly runs a hot-blooded biker off the road, the lines begin to blur.

Even though Valerie almost killed him, Griffin Black can’t be angry after he learns the reason for her distracted driving: an unruly puppy belonging to her ailing friend. As a member of the military police K-9 unit, Griffin insists on training the dog himself. But he soon wonders how he’s ever going to stay disciplined around the most alluring, down-to-earth, and totally unattainable woman he’s ever met. Valerie is the ultimate good girl. And Griffin is going to need all his old tricks to unleash her wild side.

May the Best Man WinMay the Best Man Win by Mira Lyn Kelly

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: May The Best Man Win (Best Men) Mira Lyn Kelly

Romance is a small genre and Ms. Kelly knows how to spread the magic of love. From her addictive Harlequin reads to her swoon worthy Loveswept novels and her enchanting Sourcebooks titles she knows how to keep the fires burning. Her romantic soul shines through in every paragraph she writes and every adorable character she creates. What I love most about May The Best Man Win is that it combines the best of her traits to create a story that is light, amusing and hard to put down. Am looking forward to the rest of the Best Men series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Hitched Imperfect Love #3) by Kendall Ryan

Amazing. I have followed the Imperfect Love series from volume 1. Have seen the good, bad and frustrating aspects of Olivia and Noah's relationship. Have watched each grow individually and seen the cracks in the walls each has erected. Finally I realize what was staring me in the face all along. The business was an important part of their lives both personally and professionally BUT, the lesson their fathers were trying to teach them is that life is more essential. Although it was a crazy way to get their attention. It served the purpose. Success is measured by more than accomplishments. It's the people left behind, the wisdom gained and the ability to live, not leaving any regrets at the end. Kendall Ryan has written a insightful romance that is sexy, funny and complex. The shortest in the series but the most profound.

Your Forever Love (The Bennett Family, #3)Your Forever Love by Layla Hagen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Bennett family are a symbol of what every family should aspire to be. United in life, bonded in heart and a force to be reckoned with. I received an ARC of Your Forever Love in exchange for an honest review. Pippa has been a favorite character of mine since meeting her in Your Irresistible Love. Her heart is large enough to include not just her family, but co-workers and anyone in need of TLC. Her vulnerability also made her an easy target and in the process left a bruised soul. Eric knows about pain and loss. His experience has left him a protective single father with a good head for business but no time for love. What I enjoy about Layla Hagen is her knack for turning darkness into sunshine. Her emotional stories are full of wonderful characters and give hope and happiness in times of hardship. Food for the soul.

Release Date:  August 5, 2016




SYNOPSIS

Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows?

Katy Regnery's Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings!

Jacqueline “Jax” Rousseau is vivacious, rich, smart and beautiful…but that doesn’t mean she’s lucky in love: she’s dated doctors, lawyers, actors and politicians who’ve all managed to end up disappointing her. In fact, she’s on a self-imposed hiatus from love when she has an unpleasant run-in with her neighbor’s gorgeous new landscaper, Gardener Lenox. Jax is not accustomed to gruff, ill-mannered men that can’t be charmed, but something about Gard intrigues her, and if she can find her way through the armor that surrounds his heart, she also might find a love that won’t let her down.

Jonquils for Jax (The Rousseaus, #1)Jonquils for Jax by Katy Regnery

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Jonquils for Jax (Blueberry Lane - The Rousseaus) by Katy Regnery

With any story whether horror, drama, romance, etc. there is always one scene that triggers the imagination and is hard to let go of over time. For me that was the moonlight garden scene the night Gardner and Jax met. What a first impression. The glowing flowers, the beautiful surroundings, an air of mystery mixed with the magic of simmering attraction. That one scene set the tone for the rest of the story. Gard is a paradox. He enjoys and creates beauty with an artists touch but knows that ugliness can be wrapped in beautiful trappings. Jax has a curiosity for the unknown. It tends to get her into troubling situations but her scars are hidden below her cultured upbringing and have made her wary and determined. Jonquils for Jax is just another reason why Ms. Regnery is a favorite author of mine. She uses a pen like an artist uses a brush. Her story are born from her love of beauty and becomes more obvious every stroke.

As Rich as a Rogue (Rakes and Rogues)As Rich as a Rogue by Jade Lee

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


What does a man do to appease the woman he loves? Embroil her in a scandal. I received an ARC of As Rich As A Rogue by Jade Lee in exchange for an honest review. For six years Mari has fumed over the hurtful worlds delivered by Peter. Now faced to face with her nemesis she wants retribution. Not an easy feat when Peter can't remember what was said. What ensues is petty squabbling, unwanted attraction and mutual frustration. Once the childish banter wore off, I found the romance to be enjoyable.

SYNOPSIS

 

The sheltered daughter of a country baron, Miss Adeline Pimm comes to London looking for adventure… and finds it in the form of a bloody, unconscious man slumped in the doorway of her family's rented townhouse. Though his identity is a mystery, Adeline is inexplicably drawn to the handsome, injured man and vows to nurse him back to health.

Liam Cavanaugh, the scandalous Earl of Wolford, is startled when he awakens in an unfamiliar bed, wrapped in bandages that hinder his eyesight, with no memory of why he was beaten half to death. Although he can't see the witty young woman who tends to his wounds, her alluring voice--and a single stolen kiss from her soft lips--help soothe his pain. But when he is fully healed, Liam is not ready to let go of the one woman who stirs his deepest longings.

Liam will do whatever it takes to see Adeline again, even if it means giving up his rakish ways. But his disreputable past is not so easily forgotten and his secrets are far more dangerous than he-or Adeline-ever imagined.

REVIEW:  FOOL ME ONCE (FOOLPROOF LOVE) BY KATEE ROBERT

 

Fool Me Once (Foolproof Love, #2)Fool Me Once by Katee Robert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The thrill of a Katee Robert novel is figuring out what drives her characters. What's the hidden story behind the bitter women or the distant alpha male? Aubry was a character with complications that ranged from trust issues, anger management issues and well hidden bouts of anxiety brought on by insecurities. She wears more armor than a porcupine has quills. She's not a mean spirited person, just a misunderstood one. In her mind, not letting anyone close is a way to stop unnecessary hurts but it isolates her from the people who care and ultimately leaves her missing out on her own chance at happiness. Jules is the one person she has counted on and allows into her world. Her protector, her friend wants her to be happy and with a little bit of unwitting help from an unexplored direction, Aubry may find her slice of heaven. I received an ARC of Fool Me Once in exchange for an honest review. There's a great deal of baggage on the part of both main characters but the fact that they have friends that care, in their corner helping them along makes for a cool bonus.

Frenemies Sara and Kellan, work together everyday. Are friendly on occasion and push each others buttons regularly. There are no benefits to the association until a spark of attraction leads to an explosive reaction. Mari Carr takes primitive up a notch with a sexy no limits romance that is fire engine red. Kellan is every woman's fantasy guy in the bedroom but has yet to mature in other areas. Sara is the girl next door that's bark is worse than her bite.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I enjoy reading characters like Duke. A tough guy with a tender heart is my secret fantasy brought to life. The way he took care of family and looked after a woman that he just met. Grudgingly, of course was what made me fall for him more and more. Adorably clueless, yet so sweetly insecure Samantha was a heartbreaker that could capture the heart with her innocent bravado. Worked Up is sex on a stick with a charming sense of wit.

Sebastian Bennett is a determined man. It’s the secret behind the business empire he built from scratch. Under his rule, Bennett Enterprises dominates the jewelry industry. Despite being ruthless in his work, family comes first for him, and he’d do anything for his parents and eight siblings—even if they drive him crazy sometimes. . . like when they keep nagging him to get married already.

Sebastian doesn’t believe in love, until he brings in external marketing consultant Ava to oversee the next collection launch. She’s beautiful, funny, and just as stubborn as he is. Not only is he obsessed with her delicious curves, but he also finds himself willing to do anything to make her smile.
He’s determined to have Ava, even if she’s completely off limits.

But their sizzling chemistry spirals into a deep connection that takes both of them by surprise. Sebastian blows through her defenses one sweet kiss and sinful touch at a time.

REVIEW: YOUR IRRESISTIBLE LOVE (THE BENNETT FAMILY) BY LAYLA HAGEN

 

Your Irresistible Love (The Bennett Family, #1)Your Irresistible Love by Layla Hagen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Getting the chance to read Your Irresistible Love by Layla Hagen made my heart glad. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review and found it to be a sexy, flirty, all around good time with a tremendous amount of heart. Not only did I get to read a great book, I discovered a new author and was introduced to a heartwarming new series. Can I just say every family can take a few pointers from the Bennetts, To have started with nothing but their love for one another and faith that something better was on the horizon takes courage. As the oldest Sebastian took on the responsibility of looking out for his family. With hard work, his parents backing and faith he succeeded. Now wealthier and as united as ever the Bennetts are a force to be reckoned with in business but duds in the game of love.

Your Irresistible Love is Sebastian and Ava's story. So focused on success for his family, Sebastian has forgotten how to cut loose and have fun. Ava brings out the care free man that others don't see. I liked these two together because they helped each other to relax and enjoy what was taken for granted in the past.

YOUR CAPTIVATING LOVE (THE BENNETT FAMILY) BY LAYLA HAGEN

 

 

Release DateApril 12, 2016

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Logan Bennett knows his priorities. He is loyal to his family and his company. He has no time for love, and no desire for it. Not after a disastrous engagement that left him broken-hearted.

When Nadine enters his life, she turns everything upside down. She’s sexy, funny, and utterly captivating. She’s also more stubborn than anyone he’s met. . .including himself.

Nadine Hawthorne is finally pursuing her dream: opening her own shop. After working so hard to get here, she needs to concentrate on her new business, and can’t afford distractions. Not even if they come in the form of Logan Bennett. He’s handsome, charming, and doesn’t take no for an answer.


It doesn’t help that Logan’s family is scheming to bring them together at every turn. Their attraction is sizzling, and their connection—undeniable. Slowly, Logan wins her over.
But what starts out as a fling soon spirals into so much more. Will they learn to trust their feelings?


Will they have the strength not to let go of each other?

REVIEW:  YOUR CAPTIVATING LOVE (THE BENNETT FAMILY) BY LAYLA HAGEN

 

Your Captivating Love (The Bennett Family, #2)Your Captivating Love by Layla Hagen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Bennetts are back. More adorable than ever. What struck me in Sebastian and Ava's story (Your Irresistible Love) is how close this family is. They work together, play together, worry together and even do matchmaking together. It's the Bennetts against the world and everything they do is out of love for one another. Layla Hagen uses family as a stepping stone and a focal point. By doing this she lets her readers know what is important to these alpha males and focused females. Love personified is how I would describe it. I received an ARC of Your Captivating Love in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading Your Captivating Love since I finished the first story in this series and learned that Logan's story was next. To put up with these men a woman has to be strong, secure and driven. She also has to have an amazing heart and a strong capacity for love. We saw a little bit of Nadine in Ava and Sebastian's whirlwind love story and I was so glad to find out more about her. She's a pistol but when she connects with someone, she cares deeply. Complexity does not always make a good story. Sometimes simplicity makes all the difference. I love this series.

Sebastian Viscount Benedict knows from bitter experience that marrying a woman of lower rank and fortune brings nothing but heartache. He is determined to prevent his beloved brother from making the same mistake by wedding the local squire’s daughter.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



The Viscount Meets His Match will leave any lover of romance smiling. I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Ms. Hale merges her fascination with imaginative and fun loving childhood fantasy with clean and charming yarns of love and risk. There are sentimental stories that grab hold of the heart so deeply, it's hard to let go of them. With The Viscount Meets His Match, Deborah Hale created another one.

Introduces real-world horrors into the universe of the supernatural.


PORTRAIT OF RAGE
The Marcel Experience #1
Cynthia H. Wise
Released October 31, 2015
BookLogix


“The air became frigid and the lights flickered as they both watched a shimmering veil of mist rise from the hardwood floor. As it floated toward Kelly, the dim shape of an adolescent came to life in its veiling center. The little girl’s body grew more defined in its advance, until every detail of the portrait at Kelly’s back focused and came alive before them.”

Soon after Thomas Shear buys a house for his art gallery, the spirits of a killer’s child victims haunt his dreams. Believing they were conjured by stress and a vivid imagination, Tom hopes to vanquish the nightmares that leave him shaking and sweat soaked by creating a series of life-sized portraits portraying the suffering of each little girl.

When news of his portrait series spreads, Tom is confronted by the lead investigator for the missing children, Detective Mark Winward. Realizing he has become involved in something more sinister than he could ever have imagined, and becoming the detective’s number one suspect, Tom races to find the real killer before he is framed and someone Tom loves becomes the killer’s next victim.

Portrait of Rage sets the stage for The Marcel Experience, giving readers a glimpse into what is to come. Both horror and romance, real and fantastic, Portrait of Rage introduces real-world horrors into the universe of the supernatural.

Excerpt

Kelly’s breath caught as she watched him. He really was the most gorgeous, sexiest man she’d ever met. “I’ve heard that over-stimulating the senses can be deadly.”
“There’s only one way to find out.”
Kelly smiled as the kitchen door swung shut behind him. She could still feel the touch of his kiss and hands on her body and she felt a soft blush warm her cheeks. She shook her head in awe of her own unhindered response and turned to the task of preparing the table.
The china sparkled as she lit the candles, watching each wick ignite into a glowing flame. Otis Redding’s “Dock of the Bay” drifted to her ears as she dimmed the lights.
“Perfect,” she whispered, surveying the scene. She raised her wine glass in a silent salute. A caress from eyes behind her softened her smile as she turned.
“Everything’s ready—”
Kelly’s smile wilted as the delicate crystal she held in her hand slipped to the floor with a splintering crash. She shook her head in denial at the little girl standing a few feet away and cringed beneath the haunted, forlorn light-blue eyes that pleaded for help. They seemed to bore into the very depths of Kelly’s soul, and she shuddered as the little girl lifted her hand, beckoning her to follow.

“Please, help us.”




Cynthia H. Wise lives with her husband in Marietta, Georgia, where her series, The Marcel Experience, is centered. When she is not writing novels about the supernatural and the fantastic, Cynthia can be found with her husband, Cliff, their two dogs, Jake and Sadie, and their cockatiel, Sam.

Tania Sparks is a romantic at heart who genuinely believes in true love and soul mates. She met her husband while still at school, she was sixteen, he was seventeen. They are high school sweethearts who more than twenty five years later are still very much in love and are happily married with two beautiful daughters.

Tania does have a full time job, but in her spare minutes enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and reading. She's an avid reader who tends to chomp through a large volume of books, mainly in the romance genre. Her other major 'hobby' is writing steamy rock star erotic romances!

In 2014, after finding herself constantly being inspired by numerous romance novels, she decided to try her hand at writing. After penning her first scene she discovered that she enjoyed it immensely and so resolved to continue with the rest of the story that was swirling in her imagination. That story resulted in her first novel, Heaven Sent which is the first book in her Oblivion on Tour Series. This was soon followed by Bolt From The Blue and Pure Torture. Each book in the series is a stand-alone story which follows a different band member from a hard rock group called Oblivion - and of course the feisty ladies that steal their hearts! The other books in the series are at various stages of completion.

Now-a-days Tania finds it very difficult to control her imagination and swears that her rock stars are constantly chanting their stories in her head. She can't wait to share them with you...
