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.

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.
