NEW RELEASE!!! ~ All That We Are by Melissa Toppen

Title: All That We Are
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 16, 2018
Cover Design: Pear Perfect Creative Covers

 

They say everything happens for a reason- that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. For the longest time I didn’t think that was true. I had stumbled around in the dark for so many years that I didn’t think I would ever find my way out. But when I finally did, it came in the most unexpected way.
 
Miles Hollins had been my brother’s best friend for as long as I could remember. We didn’t like each other much growing up. Or rather, we couldn’t stand each other. But after ten years of being gone, a lot had changed.
 
He wasn’t the same boy I remembered. I wasn’t the same girl either. So much had happened. 
 
I moved away and got married.
 
Miles joined the military.
 
We both returned home broken in our own way.
 
I struggled to find my place in my new life. Miles struggled just to get through the day. But together we slowly began to heal. I quieted his demons and he gave me a sense of belonging. For a while that was enough.
 
But this is real life, and in real life nothing stays perfect forever. In real life not every story ends with a happily ever after. Sometimes the scars we carry are just too deep. 
 
I promised him I would fight. 
 
He promised me I would lose. 
 
I’ll do everything in my power to prove him wrong. Because it’s when you find the one thing you can’t live without, that you truly find yourself.
 
All That We Are is a standalone contemporary romance.

BOOK REVIEW!!! ~ Whisper of Love by Melanie Shawn

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Stand-alone Whisper Lake romance, complete with HEA—and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

There is a thin line between love and hate. For Allison Walsh, that line was a tightrope hanging a hundred feet in the air, with no safety net to catch her if–or when–she fell.

Ali was barely treading water after losing her big brother, who was her hero and best friend. His sudden death left her to raise her twin nephews when the man that was supposed to share the responsibility with her went MIA after the funeral.

Kade’s MMA training made him a champion, but it never equipped him to fight off the one force beyond his control: his feelings for his best friend’s little sister. He’s sure his demons mean he’s not good enough for her, but he’s going to do everything in his power to conquer them.

When the sexy, tattooed fighter shows up on Ali’s doorstep out of the blue with a bag hanging over his shoulder and a smile that would make a nun blush, he seems different. But after all he’s put her through, Ali’s not in a forgive-and-forget kinda mood.

Will Kade prove that he’s the man worthy of Ali’s heart and trust, or will his past sins determine their future?

Whenever I crack open my kindle to find a Melanie Shawn romance, I know I’m about to have a good time and Allison and Kade were pretty damn great. I won’t go into the blurb because you can read it above but I will say that for most of the book I was TEAM ALI because the woman tried so hard, worked so hard to keep all the balls in the air and she did it with teenagers. Sulky, hormonal teenagers who didn’t need the added drama of a dead father and absentee mother.

Home girl was doing it all and doing it well, if only she wasn’t so afraid of asking for help.

Then there was Kade. The boy of her dreams who’d never quite grown up. At least until the person that meant the most to him in the world ceases to be. He spirals, as bad boys tend to do, and finally gets his act together and that’s where we find them both in Whisper of Love.

I loved the back and forth between Kade and Ali and even tough he made me mad at times, just swooping in and making everything better which colored how everyone saw Ali’s hard work, it all worked for the story. Slowly Kade grew on me. Sexy and charming, sweet and you can’t deny the chemistry between them.

This was another small town romance but it was so layered and at times I swung from sadness to laughter and then to heat. Whisper of Love hit all the high notes and I gobbled up every word in less than a day.

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.
