She’s his fantasy… 
Ava Jennings has spent her life dedicated to her family’s steel business.

With her self-esteem at an all-time low, Ava throws caution to the wind and heads to a well-known, wild biker bar.

Heaven On Earth

Jayne Rylon, Mari Carr

Compass Boys Series, Book 1

Happy Endings Publishing

Kindle Edition, 314 pages

 

 

Austin Compton has struggled to live up to the Compass legacy his entire life, afraid of disappointing his overachieving family. After dropping out of college, he convinced his parents to buy a big rig and let him contribute to the Compass Ranch in his own way.

On the open road he discovers a happy medium between the freedom he craves and the obligation that comes along with the Compton name. When he picks up some unexpected cargo in the form of a gorgeous if battered stowaway, he’s in trouble. The same reckless urges that convinced him to abandon his education are telling him to keep Hayden close and safe, maybe even teach her how to love again after the disastrous relationship she’s fleeing.

When troubled times fall on Compass Ranch, Hayden will do anything to repay the kindness Austin and his family showed her. It’s time to support Austin like he’s done for her, if her past doesn’t catch up with her at exactly the wrong moment.

 

 

 

4 Stars

Sweet, compassionate and sexy!

Austin is a man not to be judged by his looks. Yes, he’s fall down gorgeous, built and has every alpha tendency you could imagine. Not to mention the tattoos. Under his dominating exterior is a kind, caring and compassionate man that you don’t see coming. Austin is a dream come true. His mama raised him right. Austin is a true gentleman.
Hayden is a wonderful woman with dreams and aspirations who got a bad deal with the wrong man. In a moment of desperation she finds strength. Hayden is a stubborn woman but her bravery is beyond the stars. She’s an honest woman admitting to her not so wise choices and a conviction to see things to the end. She needs, for her own piece of mind, to know she can handle herself on her own before she can commit to a life of more.
Stay just a bit longer – Words of need and compassion. Austin and Hayden meet in the craziest of situations. Being a good man, Austin sees Hayden for what she is, not only beautiful, but a woman in true need of help. Austin unknowingly gives Hayden a peace that she’s never experienced. The compassion and warmth of Austin allows Hayden to begin to heal and discover herself. Love is a bumpy road, working hard to make it work and all of patience. Seeing Austin and Hayden take that road, made a story I fell in love with.

Review: A Little Harmless Lie by Melissa Schroeder

A Little Harmless  Lie

Melissa Schroeder

Harmless Series, Book 4

Kindle Edition, 289 pages
 
Published June 27th 2017 by Harmless Publishing (first published December 14th 2010)

 

 

Falling for her might be easy, seducing her may be damned hard, but keeping her alive might just be deadly.
Coming from nothing, Micah Ross now has more than he knows what to do with. His Hawaii BDSM club is flourishing, and he has his pick of women. Except one. Dee Sumners is cute, sexy, feisty…and, since she’s on his payroll, off-limits. Plus, she insists she isn’t into the life. Until one heated kiss hints that his head bartender secretly hungers to be his sub.
Life on the run doesn’t allow Dee to indulge in long-term relationships. Still, Micah manages to work his way through her tough armor and under her skin. Yet even as she succumbs to his skilled seduction, her survival instinct forms a plan to leave the island she has grown to love—and the man she’s in danger of loving.
When Dee disappears, Micah’s anger turns to fear when he realizes she didn’t leave willingly. Calling on his skills as a former bounty hunter, he tracks her to the mainland only to discover she is entangled in a web of lies and deceit that not only threatens their love, but her life.

Warning: This book contains more Hawaiian settings, a Native American Dom who always thinks he’s right, a woman on the run, sexy kisses, murderous relatives, a trip to Sin City, and a seduction that is sweet and hot and everything in between. Ice water and a towel are recommended while reading.
This book is a reissue and has not been substantially changed.

 

 

4.5 Stars

 

Suspenseful and sexy from beginning to end.

Micah Ross will make any woman melt. Tall and built with a body for sin. A total alpha and amazing Dom with hair I wish I could run my fingers through. A strong man and natural protector, Micah crosses his own lines when his head bartender can’t seem to leave his head. There is something about Micah that will make you swoon, big time.
Dee Summers had it all until witnessing event that change her life forever. Ten years on the run has had a brave woman never settling down and changing her name too many times. Dee is strong will and courageous. The love the spunk of this woman. She’s bold and daring while trying to stay under the radar. Something or someone has this woman on the run lingering longer than what a smart girl should.

Highly entertaining with the perfect level of intensity. Micah and Dee are one of my favorite couples of the Harmless series. I love the dynamic and intensity that these two share. Micah and Dee both have amazing personalities and character traits that make you fall in love with them. One of things I love about Melissa’s work, is that you get to know her characters so well through the course of the story. You see and learn their flaws and strengths like you would a friend in real life. It adds so much personality and depth to the story. Ms. Schroeder balances the suspense and romance perfectly. Keeping this reader on the edge of the seat throughout the entire story. Micah and Dee so much chemistry and tension brewing and buzzing, that once acted upon this pure combustion. A Little Harmless Lie is the perfect way to get lost in paradise.

Release Day: Shelter for Sophie by Susan Stoker

Shelter for Sophie Ebook Cover

Susan Stoker
Shelter for Sophie
Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Book 8
Release Date August 15, 2017

 

 

Blurb:
She’s shy, he’s stoic…not the hardest personality traits to overcome, but Sophie Carson and Roman “Chief” Proudfit have their work cut out for them.

Sophie has a crush on the silent-but-studly firefighter next door. She’s been pining away silently while secretly helping the hardworking man by mowing his lawn—which he thinks is being done by her nonexistent husband and/or boyfriend. He’s definitely not big on neighborly chitchat, but with her stutter, that suits Sophie just fine. But now a misunderstanding at a bar has put him even further out of her reach.

Roman’s difficult upbringing on an Indian reservation is a sore spot, so when he thinks Sophie is taking advantage of poor people for medical trials at her workplace, he lets her know exactly what he thinks. But when he discovers he misunderstood, he’s man enough to admit it…and also that he should have opened his eyes to his beautiful, sensitive neighbor sooner.

As the couple gets closer, each helping the other overcome lifelong pains, for the first time in years, Roman has something to live for other than his job. And, as he discovers when Sophie puts herself in danger, something even bigger to lose…
** Shelter for Sophie is the 8th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

ARC Review: Hope Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan

 

Hope Restored

Carrie Ann Ryan

Gallagher Brothers Series, Book 3

ebook
Published July 25th 2017

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes with the final brother who thought he had everything to look forward to, and the one woman who can handle him.

Life isn’t worth living if you don’t fight to live. That’s what Murphy Gallagher learned at a young age when cancer ravaged his body not once, but twice. Over the course of his survival, he lost his parents and his childhood, but he’s been healthy for years and has become a man he hopes his family is proud of. But when his world tilts on its axis yet again, he’ll have to learn what it means to fight not only the unknown but also his attraction to his best friend.

Tessa Stone works hard and plays harder. She’s spent her life trying to figure out who she is in the present rather than looking back. Yet when she’s forced into close proximity with Murphy, she’ll have to not only be his rock but learn how to relax enough to maybe let him be hers, as well. But seduction doesn’t stop when the world seems to, and close encounters of the naked kind might just be the first step in something much more complicated than either of them bargained for. Life, though, is for living, after all.

ARC Review: The Bridesmaid and The Hurricane by Kelly Maher

 

The Bridesmaid and The Hurricane

Kelly Maher

Capital Kisses Series, Book 1

Release Date: July 4, 2017

 

 

 

 

A one-weekend stand over a year ago, and now they’re coworkers…

Being a woman in TV is hard enough, but when the boss is trying to derail Radhika O’Leary’s career from behind the scenes, she has to make sure every aspect of her work—and her life—stands up to scrutiny.

 

Of course, the double standard is alive and well and Malcolm Jones, the broadcast meteorologist known as “Colm” to his friends and “The Hurricane Hottie” to his fangirls, knows that fame can hurt just as much as it helps. When Colm moves to DC, he’s excited to work with Radhika—her professional reputation is sparkling, and so are the kisses they shared that one weekend over a year ago when he was in town covering a blizzard.

 

But when Radhika is paired up with Colm for a project, all she sees is a looming storm over her carefully constructed career. Sparks still fly between the two journalists, and if they’re not careful, lightning might strike and alter the course of their lives forever.

Fun and sexy! 

Kelly Maher did two awesome things with The Bridesmaid and The Hurricane. One, she gave a great character driven story. Two, in a short story, she gave the reader a wonderful look at the diverse culture that D.C. has to offer.
Radhika O’Leary and Malcolm “Colm” Jones are fun characters. Radhika is smart, funny and very good at what she does. She deals with more than she should, so she can do what she loves. Radhika’s strength is something to behold. Colm has the charm of a southern gentleman. He was nothing I pictured him to be upon meeting and that made me really like him. His personality is only second to his looks and kindliness. 
The Bridesmaid and The Hurricane is a fun and flirty with intense chemistry and personality. Colm and Redkina are fun together. His persistence and her trying to stand her ground is priceless. I loved their interactions and banter. Their chemistry was amazing. Colm and Redkina truly complemented each other. I also loved seeing this relationship build. Kelly Maher has a great start to her Capital Kisses series with the Bridesmaid and The Hurricane. A quick read that makes you laugh and gives you heat. I am very much looking forward to see what some of these lovely secondary characters get themselves into.

ARC Review: The Catch by K. Bromberg 

 

The Catch

K. Bromberg

The Player Duet, Book 2

ebook, 284 pages
Published June 29th 2017 by JKB Publishing, LLC
After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

 

 

 

 

 

4.5 Stars 

Wow, what a story.

K. Bromberg captivated me with a subject that I have little interest in and of story that had more emotions than I could have seen coming.
The Catch is a continuation of The Player. It is highly recommended that you read The Player to fully understand and enjoy The Catch.

Scout and Easton are both amazing characters. It’s rare that I can relate to both lead characters in a book on such deep level. Their trials and tribulations together and separate just kept coming at them. Through heartbreak, pain, devastation, anguish and joy they found a way to make the pieces fit. Ms. Bromberg doesn’t sugarcoat anything with Easton and Scout. The Catch is a raw, emotional and contains some amazingly deep passion.

The Catch hit me hard on many levels. If I go into detail i’m afraid I’ll spoil book. Let’s just say emotional complexities within the story are extremely well written, spot on and make you feel. Hard. There were moments when I had to set the kindle down because I could not read through my tears.

Ms. Bromberg’s The Catch is an emotional ride that leaves you with the best of feeling when you read The End. Ms. Bromberg totally gets my seal of approval!
