#99cents Second Chance Holiday Romance by N.D. Jackson!

They were the quintessential ‘it’ couple. Young, beautiful and ambitious. Everyone said they had what it took to make it. That they would last. She had stupidly believed it. All of it.
Hook, line & sinker.
Then he’d walked away and never looked back.
Never knew what he left behind.

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.

NEW RELEASE!! ~ Simmer by Stephanie Rose

Title: Simmer
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: May 16, 2018

“Simmer is the perfect concoction of a sweet and savory romance that sizzles off the page.” ~ Bestselling author, Faith Andrews

 

“All the stars! This book is an absolute must read! Rose’s amazing talent for storytelling and character development shine throughout this book.” ~ NovelMomma

 

“Simmer is poignant, passionate, and the kind of slow burn that will have you boiling over with excitement as you devour every last word.” ~ Bestselling author, BL Berry

Simmer (verb): to stew gently below or just at the boiling point; to be in a state of incipient development
 
My life was always at a simmer… only stewing, never going anywhere. I was left to fend for myself when it came to affection or love, so I learned to go without.
 
I refused to let them see how broken and lonely I was; it was much easier to hide behind a false reality. I didn’t want anyone’s pity. I didn’t need it. Pity wouldn’t put food on the table or keep a roof over our heads. That was all me.
 
Now, I have a second chance at a dream long forgotten. It demands hard work and sacrifice—with absolutely no distractions. A recipe I already know all too well, raising a daughter on my own.
 
Drew Kostas is everything I’ve ever wanted but couldn’t let myself have. He’s younger, gorgeous, charming—and relentless. He sees beyond the hardened shell I’ve built to protect myself, coaxing out a softer me I don’t recognize.
 
It doesn’t matter how I melt in his presence when the heat between us threatens to boil over.
 
That’s the thing about heat. When it rises, everyone gets burned.
 
Especially when they’re foolish enough to fall in love.

NEW RELEASE!!! ~ In This Life by Cora Brent

Title: In This Life
Author: Cora Brent
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2018

In This Life is an emotionally satisfying read featuring two flawed characters who aren’t nearly as bad as they think. Kathleen was the town prodigy, the girl most likely go out there and kick life’s ass. But things tend to get in the way, for her it was getting pregnant and dropping out of school to raise her adorable little daughter Emma. But never one to let life get her down, Kat makes it work.

Then there’s Nash. Sexy, brooding, grumpy Nash. After finding his father banging the girl he wanted for himself, Nash left town and never came back. At least until a wildfire took the life of his father and stepmother, leaving him sole guardian of his little brother.

In This Life had so many elements that I loved. The geeky girl all grown up, stunning and doesn’t know it. The single parents helping each other out and watching it develop into more. The adorably precocious kids and of course, the sexy but out of his depth new parent. Watching their friendship develop was beautiful but watching it turn to something more for two people who’d been through so much was just fantastic and satisfying!

Kat and Nash were a little hard on themselves, I think. I understood their secrets and why they kept them and never once did I feel the urge to judge them for their decisions. There wasn’t much conflict, for which I was grateful, and the ending left me all warm and fuzzy.

KATHLEEN 
Things I know about Nash Ryan: 
Loner.
Unpredictable.
Wickedly hot.
Unforgiving.
Probably not the kind of man anyone should trust with an infant.
Definitely not the kind of man any woman should trust with her heart.
When Nash returned to town for the sake of his baby brother I thought I already understood who he was. 
I also thought I was done giving my heart away until he proved otherwise.
But we don’t stand a chance. 
Everything is ready to unravel.
And the secrets I’ve kept will be our undoing.
NASH 
This isn’t the first time I’ve known tragedy. 
Maybe that’s why I’ve chosen to remain alone. 
But my life of solitude ends now because a terrible twist of fate has made me
the guardian of my four-month-old brother. 
Suddenly I’ve got a kid to raise and a family business to save and there’s no time for anything else. 
That’s why Kathleen Doyle and I made this arrangement. 
Once a skinny nerd girl who used to follow me around everywhere, she’s now a single mom with flaming hair, a killer body and too many responsibilities. 
We told each other it was just sex. 
We told each other there were no strings attached, no expectations. 
We lied. 
And the consequences will cost us. 
But I’m not surrendering this new family without a battle. 
Because in this life we might only get one chance to have it all.
