BOOK REVIEW! ~ That Unexpected Kiss by Tamara Ferguson

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

FBI Agent Dylan Nash is in Wisconsin searching for his father’s killer. While working undercover as a game warden in the town of Crystal Rock, he meets special education teacher Julie Thompson, and he’s immediately attracted. But the problem with that? Not only does Julie work in Colorado, but she’s involved with another man.

While visiting her hometown, Julie and Dylan become friends, but she’s devastated to learn he’s dating her best friend Kate.

A few years later, when a teaching position opens at the new Crystal Visions school for children with disabilities, Julie accepts the job and moves back home

Learning that a series of misunderstandings has kept them apart, Dylan finally confesses his feelings, claiming Julie with an unexpected kiss.

But twenty years ago, Dylan’s father was killed and Julie’s mother disappeared. Julie is obsessed with discovering the truth, and Dylan wants justice. When clues link her mother’s twenty-year-old disappearance to the man who shot his father, can Dylan keep Julie safe from a vicious predator?

 

 

That Unexpected Kiss is the story of Julie and Dylan, a special education teacher and an FBI agent. Dylan fell in love with Julie pretty much the moment he met her but circumstances in their geographical locations and a pretty big misunderstanding they didn’t end up going on a single date in the beginning. But time has a way of changing things and Tamara Ferguson did a great job of building up that earlier anticipation because you know they’re going to meet and have a good time but when and how is anybody’s guess! When you add in the mystery of who killed Dylan’s father and the disappearance of Julie’s mother, you have a well rounded story with lots of heart and plenty of suspense.

I have to say that as enjoyable as That Unexpected Kiss was, it did take a while before I was interested enough to read a few chapters without stopping. But once I was into the story there was no stopping, no going back. Not at least until after the mystery was solved, the curtain fell and the happy ending commenced. Tamara Ferguson really excelled at blending the romance and family with the mystery which meant the book felt like what it was instead of half romance and half suspense. I was pleasantly surprised by the story of Julie and Dylan, and intrigued by the mystery until the very end.

Crystal Rock was a great little small town with plenty of heart and character. The chemistry with Dylan and Julie was a simmering heat that they dealt with all while dealing with every other obstacle life threw in their way. A fun, solid read by a new to me author that I highly recommend.

COVER REVEAL!! –> Too Bad So Sad by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Too Bad So Sad
Series: The Simple Man
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 8, 2018
Cover Designer: Cover Me Darling
Cover Model: Franggy Yanes
Cover Photographer: FuriousFotog
Tyler Cree has never been good at the whole look and don’t touch thing.

From the moment he was old enough to walk on his own two feet, he’s been looking for trouble.

Trouble comes in many forms…quite a few of those forms being the female persuasion.

Tyler knows what girls want—a bad boy. And he has the bad boy image down pat.

Ex-military—check.

Hot cop—double check.

A bike between his legs and a devil may care attitude—oh, yeah.

All the girls want him, yet none of them will have him—at least not all of him, anyway. A certain appendage they can have all they want. His heart, however, is not up for grabs. The useless organ inside his chest was broken and battered, mutilated by the one woman he thought would keep it safe.

Spoiler alert: she ripped it to shreds and set fire to the pieces.

To protect himself, Tyler keeps everyone at arm’s length, and never lets anyone get too close.

Then Reagan Rose Alvarez barrels into his life, and trespasses on not only his property, but straight into his abused heart. One glance is all it takes, and he’s suddenly thinking about things he hasn’t thought for quite some time—thoughts that a man like him should never have about a woman like her.

One moment of weakness is all it takes, and suddenly he has no other choice but to go on the offensive.

Keeping her is the only other option now.

Turns out, his heart isn’t as broken as he thought it was.
The only problem is, now the little she-devil holds it in the palm of her hands, and she has no clue just how much power she holds.

 


I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 9, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

When she told me Sons of Anarchy was her favorite show, I knew I was in trouble.

When she said I’m what Jax would look like if he didn’t die, I knew I was screwed.

I was her fantasy man… all grown up.

But I’m no pretty boy acting in a show.

This is real life sweetheart. 

It’s ugly. 
It’s raw.
Unscripted.

Meat a.ka. Roger spent his life protecting the secrets of his motorcycle club while being a bodyguard to the princess who grew up in its shadow. But when she finds her king and her happy ending: Roger rides alone.

Devon walks into his bar looking for a job. But, one look at the tatted, silver fox and she knows she’s found her man. 

But Meat wants nothing to do with a girl half his age.

He calls her jailbait.

She calls him her dream man.

Sometimes the best things are unplanned. They are UnScripted.

Authors Note: This is a standalone spinoff novel from Duke but the author does recommend reading in order.


“You showed.”
Shrieking, I turn around, with a hand over my rapidly beating heart. My first thought is: He’s huge. My second thought is: He’s that asshole. My third thought is: Damn, he’s fine.
Be cool Dev, be cool. My fingernails dig into my palms as I try to slow it down, bite my tongue and rein in my swirling emotions. I can’t make an enemy of this man when he could be the key to solving so many answers of my past.
“Y-yes.”
He smirks, slowing coming forward and my breath catches before I burst out into a fit of laughter. He’s a beast–a giant with ink covering both arms, but in that white apron he’s wearing over a pair of worn jeans he looks like any woman’s wet dream who’s over forty.
“What?” He barks.
“It’s just. It’s just that… I’m sorry,” I gasp out swiping tears of laughter, “You look hot. I mean, for an old guy and all… in that apron,” I gesture with one hand, trying to charm him with the truth.
His lips don’t twitch. He stares me down with eyes that seem to glow in the dark. Fascinated, I slowly walk forward. I’ve never seen eyes that color before. They’re light blue like arctic ice caps, bobbing in a frigid sea. And his hair… it’s gray and hands down the back of his neck tethered by a leather strap. His beard looks soft, they kind that you could run a hand over before you cuddle in, listening to the sound of your man’s steady heart.
What the fuck?
I shake my head and clear my throat. “I’m sorry. You caught me off guard.”
“Follow me,” he grunts.
He leads me down a hall towards the kitchen. The smells wafting towards us makes my tummy growl. I know he heard, but he doesn’t crack a joke at my expense.
My eyes lower to his ass, and I bite my lip. He’s built. His ass is firm and meaty like he used to power lift or something. I kind of feel like a freak for even looking at a man who’s got to be twice my age at least—but I’m fascinated. I’m fascinated that he’s in such good shape and intrigued that he knows who Dee was. I need to make sure I get this job. It might be the key to solving everything about my past.

He’s a fire chief who curses out the mayor at every turn. She’s the mayor who needs him in a crisis.
He’s a line firefighter attracted to the mayor’s daughter. She’s a woman who wants nothing to do with a man like him.
Chief Chase Talbot has butted heads with Mayor Vanessa Jordan since she was elected to office two years ago. And since he’s the head of the fire department, she’s his boss. Still, he takes no grief from her. But after a fire involving her parents, Vanessa turns to Chase for help. When the situation calms down, both are unable to get their relationship back to what it was. Throw in troubled teens, estrangement from family, a possible arson and you get a complex, gripping plotline and an emotional and scintillating love story.
Interweaved with Chase and Vanessa’s lives is Joe Santori, the young, brash and immature firefighter of book one. Now Joe is a wiser, more settled lieutenant running his own crew. When Holly Michaels, a fourth grade teacher, and the mayor’s daughter, moves into the condo next to his, she intrigues him. But Holly doesn’t want to get involved: Joe is worldly, gorgeous and way out of her league. The problem is, he doesn’t think so. These young people go on a rollercoaster ride of emotional highs and lows, but even after they give into their passion, the old Joe resurfaces and Holly’s having none of it.
It comes as a shock to both couples that contrary to what each thought, they don’t have all they need!
Cameo appearances of readers’ favorite firefighters from Hidden Cove, as well as Shay’s trademark tense and nail-biting rescue scenes, sizzling sexual encounters, and emotions exploding on every page, this book will pull you in and not let go until the characters find their way back to each other.
