BOOK REVIEW & RELEASE!!! ~ Can’t Stand The Rain by Kait Nolan

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Delaney Newell knows what it means to be powerless. Against the family who wouldn’t support her. Against the man she loved who betrayed her. Against the gossips who won’t let her forget it. But after years of struggling, she’s finally getting her life together.

Sean Murphy has spent years fighting forest fires. The former hotshot turned forester knows the growth that can sprout from unfathomable destruction. That’s what he sees in Delaney—someone who got leveled by life but didn’t stop growing. He’s spent the past several months watching the shy red-head blossom, and he really likes what he sees.

When Delaney is accused of a crime she didn’t commit, everyone is willing to believe the worst of her. Everyone except Sean. The woman he knows couldn’t possibly be behind the rash of fires that are keeping the volunteer fire department hopping. Someone is deliberately framing her. Will Delaney trust him enough to help her find the real culprit?

I am always glad for a trip back to Wishful. Over the years Kait Nolan has always made sure I had a good time, a few tears and some knee-shaking swooning. This time though in Can’t Stand The Rain, we got something a little edgier dealing with issues that make you take a second look at some of Wishful’s kind townsfolk.

Delaney was put through the wringer thanks to a scumbag ex. She lost her family and the support of her town but she persevered and held her head up high which instantly made me like her and root for her. She was strong through it all, when some of us (me) would have just blown up at Gina and given her what she had coming…again!

And Sean, well he is an absolutely perfect book boyfriend. He is kind and understanding and he doesn’t hold back the truth even when he knows it might not be what Delaney wanted to hear. Together Delaney & Sean’s was an interesting story to read. I had a good time as I usually do in Wishful and I look forward to the next one!

ABOUT:

After dumping her boyfriend, Nicole Franklin impulsively jumps on a plane and heads to Europe. Sure, money and a job would have been nice to line up first. Even a visa, for that matter. So now she has to play tour guide at an Outlander experience for the most obnoxious man on the planet. Until she stumbles into the wrong bed in the middle of the night and wakes up in Harrison’s arms. Now his family thinks they’re engaged, and the entire village is betting on how long before she’ll be running for the hills.

Harrison Troy has a reputation in the town for burning through assistants. And the bubbly new one he’s just hired is likely no different. But his family quickly has them “engaged.” He should be upset, but she’s the perfect buffer for his interfering family. She says she doesn’t need another man in her life–even if he comes with a castle–and that’s fine with him. So why can’t he stop thinking about the woman who is charming everyone in the town, and maybe even him?

HAPPY RELEASE DAY & REVIEW!! ~ White Knight by Annie Dyer

Title: White Knight
Series: Callaghan Green Series Book Two
Author: Annie Dyer
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: June 1, 2018
Back then things were simple, being together was easy and exciting. Back then, their only concern was keeping their relationship secret from her brothers. Until she had a choice to make; the hardest decision she ever had to face. 
Claire Callaghan has dedicated her adult life to two things: her career as a family lawyer and trying to move on from the love she had to give up. Killian O’Hara has spent years fighting for his country, growing his business, and trying to forget how it ended back then, all the while wondering why Claire took herself out of his life, breaking his heart. 
But fate has a funny way of bringing the past into the present.
Claire’s latest case puts her in danger, not just from the man who her client needs to hide from, but from the man she’s had to leave behind. Killian can protect her, if she’ll let him, because being close to him reopens old wounds. All he wants is to try again, to prove he’s the man she needs and maybe an explanation.
However, even choices made long ago have consequences, and only Claire can decide if she can give both Killian and herself a second chance at the happily ever after they never had – back then.
White Knight is the second in the Callaghan Green series. Each book is a standalone and can be read separately from the others.

NEW RELEASE & REVIEW!! ~ Can’t Take My Eyes Off You by Kait Nolan

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Exhausted by the futility of her efforts against the city’s endemic problems and the revolving door of violence in her Chicago emergency room, Dr. Miranda Campbell came home to Wishful, where she knew she could make a real difference in people’s lives. Between her clinic, a rotation in the hospital’s ER, volunteer work at the new women’s shelter, and time spent with family and friends, her life is full. But it’s not too full to notice a sexy lawman when she sees one.

Former US Marshal Ethan Greer is still settling into the job as Wishful’s new Chief of Police, but he’s starting to realize it may be years before he’ll ever be considered one of the locals. Fair enough. He’s the first to admit that making the shift to small town policing is a big adjustment. After losing his marriage and almost his life in line of duty, the slow pace of Wishful is a change he’s happy to make.

While Miranda’s and Ethan interest in each other is mutual, he’s not sure about taking on a serious relationship. That’s just fine with her. But when Miranda is targeted in an escalating chain of threatening events, Ethan’s Marshal instincts go on overdrive. Miranda’s rose-colored view of Wishful is putting her in danger. She’s become more than a casual fling or a job responsibility. With Ethan’s training screaming at him to put her in protective custody, can he find out who’s behind the threats before he pushes Miranda away?

NEW RELEASE!!! ~ I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes I Flipping Love You, a love story about flipping houses, taking risks, and landing that special someone who’s move-in ready.

Rian Sutter doesn’t usually get hit on in the grocery store, but when she notices a sexy man in a suit checking her out, she thinks maybe it’s her lucky day. Either that or the suit has a thing for sweaty, yoga-pant wearing women with excellent price matching skills.

Turns out it’s neither.

Pierce Whitfield can’t believe his luck when he’s able to track down the woman who scratched up the paint job on his car at the scene of the crime. But when he confronts the hit and run hottie, he discovers there’s not just one, but two of them, and he’s been throwing accusations at the wrong twin.

As repair costs are negotiated, and the chemistry between them flares, Rian and Pierce find out they have more than mutual attraction in common. They’re both vying for the same pieces of prime real estate in The Hamptons and neither one plans to give up without a fight.

Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance—without burning down the house?

ABOUT:

On a Wednesday afternoon, I ask Trevor Bentley to marry me. He might be the most arrogant, obnoxious man I know, but I need him to be my husband for a year.

There are reasons.

He’s not going to be a real husband. Just part-time. Yes, I have to live with him. And, okay, I also have to share his bed. And, sure, he’s the hottest and most exciting thing to ever happen to my controlled, organized life.

But still… It’s only a part-time marriage. I’m not going to give him my heart. I know what I’m doing, and I’m too smart to fall for my husband.

I hope.

BOOK REVIEW –> Mr. Insatiable by Serenity Woods

Get your copy HERE!!!

 

ABOUT:

Has Mr. Insatiable finally met his match?

Kit Fawkes is Enya’s most favorite person in the whole world. She’s known him forever, and as her brother’s best mate and business partner, she would trust him with her life.

But ever since his ex told Enya that he was ‘insatiable’ in the bedroom, she’s harbored a secret curiosity for what that means. And on the night of her brother’s wedding, when she admits to Kit that she has a problem in the bedroom, she finally gets the chance to find out. Kit’s determination to prove to her that she’s not ‘broken’ leads to a lovemaking session that leaves them both wanting more. So Enya suggests an arrangement—a brief fling while they’re on a trip away in China.

What she doesn’t know is that Kit’s already half in love with her, and there’s no way he will turn down an opportunity to get her into bed again. “If I agree to this, it won’t be as your friend,” he tells her. “I’m not going to hold back. I’ll want you every which way, as often as I can manage it. I’ll want to show you everything I know, and explore a few more things together, if we have time. Do you think you can cope with that?”

Does he know that’s what she wants? So badly, it’s making her burn? But what will happen in the cold light of day, when Kit learns the whole truth about her past?

 

 

I really enjoyed Mr. Insatiable. Kit and Enya were amazing, from their lifelong friendship, the secret crushes and oh my god the hotness!

I always enjoy Serenity Woods’ books and this one was no different. What I really enjoyed was that Enya wasn’t just some happy-go-lucky girl bouncing around and flitting about life, she had substance to her. A horrible event in her past that would have a huge impact on her future, but Enya didn’t let it get to her. Much. I mean she has some issues related to it, but so many that it prevented her from living. She dealt with it the best way she could, and I appreciated that.

Kit was…everything. He was fun and funny, sweet and he knew exactly what Enya needed and did his best to give it to her. He was the quintessential book boyfriend and absolutely insatiable! Don’t get me wrong, he’s a guy, so of course he screws up at some point, but he deals with it head on and by head on I mean he drowned his sorrows in booze (fine by me) and then he got off his butt and went after his woman.

There was no real villain and if I’m honest, no real angst in Mr. Insatiable, and that just made the story even better as far as I was concerned. The only part that had me clenching my teeth was Kit’s dad. Yeah of course he’s looking out for his son, but kit is a GROWN MAN, and really it wasn’t his business. With a group as close as this group is, these things are bound to happen but I thought he was totally out of bounds and dead wrong.

Other than John, I truly loved the story and it reminded me why Serenity Woods is a one-click author.
