There was a time when Nick loved the fear he instilled in his enemies. His tattoos alone promised danger, but it was the look in his eyes that delivered on it. A contract killer since he was just a boy, Nick has now forged a new life and a new identity with the woman who followed him, captured him, and changed him.

He terrified Daisy. Once. But she couldn’t resist, and she ignored every warning. It paid off. Now she’s part of a new beginning, a fresh start in America helping him to leave behind a reckless and violent past as a professional killer. But the past is never easy to outrun, especially when so much of it thrives on revenge.

A new threat has emerged from the shadows, and now Nick and Daisy have no choice but to rely on Nick’s killer skills to protect them from everything they’ve tried so hard to escape.



I absolutely loved that we get to revisit Nick and Daisy with Last Hit: Reloaded.  In this lastest, we see that Nick and Daisy are making their life together but are still experiencing some struggles.

Both Nick and Daisy are enrolled at the university and taking classes.  While Nick is happy to keep his social circle of one, Daisy longs to make friends.

We are introduced to a couple of new characters when danger plays out.  Clare and Frederick do a stellar job teasing us with McFadden’s character…I wan’t to know more.

I’m looking forward to the next installment in the Hitmen series…bring on Last Kiss.

Sometimes surviving doesn’t feel lucky. Especially when you’re a sole survivor…

At the age of seven, Malerie walked away from a bombing that left hundreds dead—including her mother.

A mysterious code holds the key to her future, and a reluctant white knight holds the key to her heart.

A loner wearing emotional armor…

Ace is a twenty-year-old entrepreneur focusing on two things in life: financial security and a life without ties. A life that doesn’t risk losing the ones who matter. When Ace is hired to secretly act as a bodyguard for Malerie, he faces an unwanted attraction that threatens to sabotage his heart. Can Ace find the courage to love a girl with a death wish?

Chasing Lucky is the first in a new series by Brinda Berry, Serendipity.  I was really looking forward to reading this story and was not at all disappointed.
From the prologue to the epilogue, I was turning the pages to get every bit of Malerie and Ace’s story.  Berry makes a great match with Malerie and Ace.  She gives us leads that are both dealing with tragic pasts while developing into memorable and empathetic characters.  The mystery and suspense are fresh and kept me guessing at what was going to happen next.
I’m looking forward to reading Collin’s story in Tempting Fate.

Great Getaway with YOU TURN by Marion Croslydon

YouTurn.v5(1) (1) (1)


Adult Contemporary Romance

Second Chances Series

Release: October 6, 2014

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo



“I was the little girl who loved you from afar. I was the woman who gave herself away for you and ended up losing a lot of who she was.”

“Then allow me to give back some of what I stole.”

After being dumped by her fiancé, Eleanor Carrington flees to Paris to stay with her self-medicated mother. While keeping her mom from popping pills like gummy bears, Eleanor launches a new, no-strings-attached life plan with absolutely NO falling in love whatsoever. On her part at least, because her self-esteem could do with one or two Frenchmen going un peu crazy for her.

What she doesn’t need is for her first Grand Amour to burst back into her life. What she doesn’t need is all-American Zachary Murdoch—or a more mature and sensitive version of him—to schmooze his way into her heart again. She grew up loving the/this/that man until he dumped her five summers ago. Whatever shit-show/life drama she’s just been through was a stroll. What Zach put her though was a climb up Mount Everest. Barefoot. In a bikini.

Now a club-owner in Paris, Zach is intrigued by the troubled woman who was once the sweet girl he had to give up. Offering a shoulder for her to cry on is what he owes her. Loving her is what he lost the right to. Because there’s a reason he broke up with Lenor and that reason is why she’s in Paris.

But Paris is called the City of Love…

Will he be her turn at love?

*** You Turn is a contemporary adult romance and part of the Second Chances series. However, Lenor’s story can be read as a stand-alone novel. There is no cliffhanger. ***




You Turn is a wonderfully romantic read with emotion and angst that keep you turning the pages.  I love second chance love stories and that is what we get with Lenor and Zach’s story.

We meet Zach right away and get a piece of the history Lenor and Zach share.  I was immediately intrigued and needing to know what happened from that time to the now, 5 years later. The past and present transitions were smooth and provide the perfect insight to Lenor and Zach.  We’re able to see the changes each make in their lives as they fight for what they want and how they want to live their lives.

You Turn hits all the right buttons, the reader gets an emotional second chance love story, great characterization and a romantic setting.  This was the first I’ve read by Marion Croslydon but won’t be the last.




marion croslydonMarion loves to share happy vibes, talk book crush, fictional boyfriends and sexual chemistry with like-minded people. And because she spends most of her days on her own deep inside her writing cave—and under the grey London sky—, you are welcome to come and say ‘hello’ from time to time. Just to make sure she doesn’t sink into insanity. Her friends, family and arch-enemies (there are quite a few) will be forever grateful for your help.

A Perfect Secret Series, #3

New Adult Contemporary Romance and Mystery

Released September 2014

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes


The one secret she can’t stand to keep is the one she can’t afford to tell.

The perfect little rich girl, River Pearl Sutton has always done what her family expected of her. She’d become the perfect little beauty queen, the perfect child model and now her global success locks her into a life she never really chose.

Coming home for the summer to prepare for the Founder’s Day Festival, a celebration of her lauded ancestor, she is tasked by her father to write a speech to be delivered at the end of the party.

Returning to Hope Parish brings her back into close proximity with sweet-talking, skirt-chasing Braxton Outlaw, the boy who always seemed immune to her charms in high school. But now he looks at her with those challenging blue eyes, both intimidating and seductive at the same time. Using research of her family lineage and his as way to get close to this bad boy, they fall into a hot, torrid affair.

She stumbles across a terrible secret that could bring to ruin not only her reputation, but the reputation and standing of her family. But when her infatuation with Brax grows into something that she can’t live without, she must decide what to do. Keep the secret and lose Brax or destroy her family and lose them.

It’s an awful, heartrending perfect dilemma.


My Review

A Perfect Dilemma was the perfect story to end the A Perfect Secret series.  Braxton Outlaw and River Pearl Sutton take us back to Hope Parish, Louisiana.  The bayou was the perfect setting for this suspense and secret filled read.

I loved that Brax and River Pearl see beneath the surface and more in each other.  The mystery solving, suspense and secrets kept me engaged in the story and needing to know what was going to happen.

A Perfect Secret, Book #2

How can they have a future when their past is based on a lie?

The perfect preacher’s daughter, Verity Fairchild, has something that only she and God know about and she wants to keep it that way. Her mistake was easy to keep secret when she was out of town, but now that she’s come back to Hope Parish for the summer, she comes face-to-face with the guy responsible for it all. Boone Outlaw nearly ruined everything for her and despite the fact that he’s now working at her father’s church, she’s determined to stay as far away from him as possible.

Boone Outlaw doesn’t understand Verity’s anger towards him. He barely knows her. In high school she was Holy Mary Verity and she was off limits – except in his dreams where Verity seems way too real. Most of the time he was wasted in high school, not the type of boy Verity would ever look at twice, but he can’t shake the feeling that something might have happened between them. He’s going to break his own rules to get the answers he needs straight from Verity.

What will Verity do when she finds something in Boone that she never knew existed and her perfect mistake is the only thing that could stand between them and their happiness? Will she sacrifice Boone to keep her secret?


My Review

Back to the bayou and Hope Parish, Louisiana for Boone and Verity’s story.  This second book in the A Perfect Secret series, A Perfect Mistake, was an enjoyable read.  I couldn’t help but fall for Boone and Verity.

Zoe Dawson continues to give her readers strong characters living real life issues.  There is always something in the story that is relatable.  I’m looking forward to Braxton Outlaw’s story.





A Perfect Mess

A Perfect Secret, Book #1

I know what you did last summer.

Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.

Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.

Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.

Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.


My Review

I couldn’t wait to read A Perfect Mess…bad boys and Louisiana, two of my favorite things.  Of course I loved Booker Outlaw, the hot guy bad boy that has made a successful career writing horror novels.  And I really liked Aubree, the perfect girl that has secrets.

A Perfect Mess hooked me with the characters but kept me reading with the twists and secrets to be uncovered.  I couldn’t put this story down until the very end.  I loved that while I was reading it felt like I was right there in the bayou and seeing this story unfold.  I’m looking forward to the next in the series.

First Class Travels with WHATEVER LIFE THROWS AT YOU by Julie Cross








Amazon ** Amazon UK ** Barnes & Noble ** iBooks ** Powell’s Books



Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas is too young to remember her dad’s glory days as a pitcher for the Yankees. So when her father is offered a coaching position with the Kansas City Royals, Annie is intrigued to see the baseball side of her dad. Of course, knowing he’ll be a mentor to hot young rookie pitcher, Jason Brody, certainly makes it more enticing.

After an awkward first meeting with “Brody” involving very little clothing and a much-too-personal locker room interview, Annie’s convinced she knows Brody’s type: arrogant, self-involved, bossy. As her dad grows closer to the pitching phenom, the friction between Brody and Annie increases. But when opening day arrives and it looks like both her dad and Brody may lose their dream jobs, Annie steps up and offers support. She and Brody call a truce that grows into friendship—and beyond. Falling for a rising star who’s quickly reaching a level that involves rabid female fans is not what Annie would call smart, except suddenly she’s getting hints that maybe this crush isn’t one-sided after all. Could someone like Brody actually fall for a girl like her?


WLTAY avaialble now



My Review 

Whatever Life Throws at You is one of my favorite reads of 2014!  From the beginning I was hooked in with Annie’s narration.  I was intrigued with her family dynamic and couldn’t wait to know more.  I love that this story is character driven and highlights a multitude of relationships.

Annie, the pitching coach’s seventeen year old daughter, becomes friends with Jason Brody, the nineteen year old bad boy rookie pitcher.  The portrayal of their relationship feels realistic and I loved that we get to see their relationship develop.

The timing couldn’t be better with Major League Baseball playoffs occurring with the Kansas City Royals one of the teams trying to get to the World Series.  If I wasn’t a Baltimore  Orioles fan, I’d be cheering “Go Royals” this year just because of Whatever Life Throws at You.

First class travels with AS LONG AS YOU LOVE ME by Ann Aguirre

ALAYLM BT banner




 Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. There are the justifications she gives to everyone else—missing her family, losing her college scholarship. And then there’s the reason Lauren can’t admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend’s older brother.
Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He can’t pinpoint exactly what’s missing until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her. But he’s the guy that women love and leave—not the one who makes them think of forever.

Though she’s terrified of opening up, Lauren’s ready to take that chance. Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.

My Review

I loved everything about As Long As You Love Me…everything.  After I Want It That Way, I couldn’t wait to read Lauren’s story and see what was going to happen with her best friend Nadia’s brother, Rob.

Ann Aguirre gives us characters that are very relatable and dealing with real life issues.  I thought her portrayal of Rob was refreshing and genius.  I fell hard for Rob.  In appearance Rob has it all going on, the hot, hunky athlete but that hides some unexpected insecurity.  Lauren has her own issues that have her back in her hometown.  I loved how they each saw into the other beyond what was on the surface.

Ann Aguirre has become an auto-buy for me!  I’m looking forward to the next in the 2B trilogy, The Shape of My Heart…can’t wait.

An Amazing Journey with SHAME by Rachel Van Dyken






Synopsis: Release day 10/6

Everything done in darkness, will eventually be brought into the light.

I ran, but all it did was keep me one step ahead of my past. I tried to start over; new name, new identity. But you can’t change your soul.

A fresh start at college was just what I needed. For a while, it worked. I was the party girl, the one that seemed confident, but it was a lie.

When guys kissed me–I felt only pain.

When they touched me–Nothing but fear.

Deep inside, every girl wants to be the beauty in the story, to find someone that will see you as their world.

But the truth? I was the beast. And as much as I wanted redemption, I wasn’t fool enough to think I’d ever get it.

Until he walked into my life.

I wasn’t prepared to fall for someone. My scars were too deep, the wounds too raw. But he offered me peace, he offered me security. I should have known it was just another lie–I should have known that falling in love with my professor was a bad idea.

But I was powerless to stop myself from falling.

And he was powerless to catch me.

Because the darkness finally caught up to me, and as fate would have it, a cruel twist almost bled me dry. But I’m stronger than I knew. I’m stronger than you think.

You think you know my story, but you don’t….after all everyone has Shame in their lives– and I’m no longer afraid to show you mine.




I closed my eyes and leaned my forehead against hers. A shaky breath escaped her lips. “I’m going to kiss you now.”

“Are you trying to prepare me or ask permission?” she whispered, her voice beckoning me like a siren’s call.

“Both.” My lips hovered near hers. “I figure it’s only fair.”

“Fair?” She pulled back slightly. “How so?”

“Ten thousand.” I angled my head and watched the pulse jump on her neck. “That’s how many nerve endings, on average, are in your lips. Consequently, when your body anticipates pleasure, the build-up is the best part. Imagine, those ten thousand nerves are swelling, allowing blood to surge through them in anticipation of… what?” I swept my tongue across her lower lip and whispered, “Of being touched. I ask permission, not because I’m being a gentleman. It’s actually the complete opposite. I ask permission so your brain anticipates the pleasure before I’ve ever even touched you.”

I tasted her lower lip again and abruptly dipped my tongue into her mouth. Then just as quickly retreated. “The human body is an instrument. Know how to master it… and well…” I let my voice drop as I moved my hands slowly to her shoulders and tugged her body flush against mine. Our mouths met softly at first. I deepened the kiss, memorizing her taste, knowing I wouldn’t experience a kiss like this again in my lifetime. The way her scent, her soft moans destroyed my body, wrecked me from the deepest part of me, was nothing short of life-altering.

And I’d like to think I’d kissed a lot of women.

I’d studied the psychology of sexuality.

I was an expert in pleasure.

But she was schooling me, absolutely wreaking havoc on every logical thought as her soft whimper cascaded over me. Blood surged through my body as it tightened with awareness at her proximity.

She pulled back, her lips swollen. “That was… not a good enough warning.”

Laughing softly, I cupped the back of her head and gently drew it toward mine and kissed her again, angling my lips differently, searching her, consuming her, drawing pleasure from her lips as if it was my life goal to discover every single secret she owned.

Her arms wrapped around my neck. She was shy; she didn’t push against me, didn’t wrap her legs around me or moan into my mouth like I was having sex with her rather than kissing her.

My hands moved down her corset to her hips, and I lifted her into the air and walked her backward toward the brick wall. The whole time, our masks collided. In frustration, I ripped hers off, then mine. The shadows of moonlight hid our faces as I kissed her harder, losing myself in her.

Her nails dug at the back of my neck as she jerked my head harder. Groaning, I let her fall to the ground as I placed my hands on the brick wall to keep myself from ripping the dress from her body.

Shouting started from the ballroom.

“Ten, nine…!”

“Eight,” I whispered against her mouth. “Seven.”

“Six.” She sighed, her breathing labored as her tongue found mine again. “Five.”

“Four, three.” I pulled back and trailed kisses down her neck.


We broke apart, both breathing heavy. “One.”

People burst out onto the balcony as the fireworks started, lighting up the sky. And our faces.

And the only thing I could say as she gasped in horror was “Oh, shit.”

My Review

Rachel Van Dyken continues to deliver books that immediately pull the reader in without letting them go before the last page is read.  I was excited to see that Shame was giving us Lisa’s story, I’d been hoping to see what was developing for her.  I loved that Wes and Gabe play important roles in Lisa’s story.

Shame is a satisfying ending to the Ruin series.  There are twists, turns, and secrets with well-developed, complex characters that keep the reader invested in Lisa and Tristan’s story.

Amazing journey with SIDESWIPED by Lia Riley

Title: Sideswiped

Author: Lia Riley

Series: Off the Map #2

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publication: October 7th, 2014

It was only meant to last the summer . . .

Talia Stolfi has seen more than her share of loss in her twenty-one years. But then fate brought her Bran Lockhart, and her dark world was suddenly and spectacularly illuminated. So if being with Bran means leaving her colorless NorCal life for rugged and wild Australia, then that’s what she’ll do. But as much as Talia longs to give herself over completely to a new beginning, the fears of her past are still lurking in the shadows.

Bran Lockhart knows that living without the beautiful girl who stole his heart will be torment, so he’ll take whatever time with her he can. But even though she has packed up her life in California and is back in his arms for the time being, she can’t stay forever. And the remaining time they have together is ticking by way too fast. Though fate seems determined to tear them apart, they won’t give up without a fight—because while time may have limits, their love is infinite . . .

— — — — — — — —- — — — — — — —- — — — — — — —- — — — — — — — 
My Review 
After Upside Down, I couldn’t wait for Talia and Bran’s story to continue.  Sideswiped picks right up where their story leaves off.  I loved that in Talia and Bran we get characters that are spot on in delivering the emotions and struggles of their age.  The alternating points of view really work in pulling you into their story.
I’m looking forward to seeing where Inside Out takes their story.  C’mon December!

Amazing journey with INDECENT PROPOSAL by Molly O’Keefe




 September 2014

Boys of Bishop, book #4



 Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s gritty and sensual tale of passion and politics features the brother of the heroine from the author’s beloved novel, Never Been Kissed. He’s a driven man who refuses to be distracted—until he meets a beautiful bartender who just may change his life.

With his chiseled jaw and his thick blond hair, Harrison Montgomery was born to lead. Four generations of Montgomery men have served the state of Georgia and now he’s next in line. Harrison, though, is driven to right wrongs: namely to clean up the political mess left by his father’s greed and corruption. But Harrison must first win his congressional bid, and nothing can get in his way—not even an angel who served him whiskey and gave him a shoulder to lean on and a body to love for a night. Problem is, she’s pregnant. Scandal is brewing and there is only one solution: marriage.

Damage control? Ryan Kaminski can’t believe that a cold, calculating political animal now inhabits the body of the emotionally vulnerable stranger who’d given her the most unforgettable night of her life. Really, she doesn’t want anything from Harrison, except to be left alone to have her baby in peace. But Ryan is broke, jobless, and essentially blackmailed by Harrison’s desperate family to accept this crazy marriage deal. For two years, she will have to act the role of caring, supportive wife. But what is Ryan supposed to do when she realizes that, deep in her heart, she’s falling in love.

My Review

I love the Boys of Bishop series and couldn’t wait to read Indecent Proposal.  Sex, politics, family and love…the makings of a story to remember.  At first I just wasn’t sure if I was going to like the Harrison and Ryan match.  It wasn’t very long before I was convinced it couldn’t be any other way.   Both are strong characters but we get that glimpse of vulnerability that is irresistible.

Molly O’Keefe continues to deliver emotion-packed contemporaries that are filled with realistic characters that stay with you.  If you haven’t picked up the Boys of Bishop, you’re missing out on strong characters that pull you into their lives and have you remembering them long after the last page.

Great getaway with THE RESOLUTION OF CALLIE & KAYDEN by Jessica Sorensen

TheResolution ebooklg


 The Resolution of Callie and Kayden

Available on Amazon, iTunes, B&N, and Smashwords



Things are going good for Callie and Kayden. They’re still dealing with their past and the pain connected to it, but for the most part they’ve moved on. The biggest decision they have at the moment is what they want to do with their lives in the future.

Eventually, though, the past catches up with them and they’re left facing tough choices. But Callie and Kayden learn that as long as they have each other, they can make it through just about anything. And in the end, they discover what they really want out of life.



“She’s just being nice,” Kayden says gazing down at me. His hair is ruffled and his jawline is scruffy and he looks so happy. “And it’s nice… that she wants to be so nice… it could be worse than an overnice mother.”

“Yeah, I know.” I sigh, knowing he’s right, that it could be worse, that I could have a mother like his mother. “I just wish she’d be just a little bit less embarrassing.” I raise my hand and make a pinching gesture with my fingers. “Maybe just a teeny tiny bit.”

“Yeah, I doubt that’s ever going to happen.” Kayden slips his shirt off and chucks it aside. His jeans ride low on his hips, giving me a view of his abs and chest that is crisscrossed with scars. “I did find it funny when she kept cracking jokes all through dinner about how she thinks we’re going to end up getting married.” He kneels down on the mattress, nudging my knees open with his knees until I spread open my legs for him.

“Oh God.” Shaking my head, I cover my face with my hands. “I’m glad you find it funny because I’m sure most guys would be running for their lives.”

The mattresses moves as he leans over me and puts a hand on each side of my head. I crack my fingers apart and look at him. He’s been so much happier since he put the past behind him. He seems to breathe freer, smile more, and it’s probably the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen. “Well, just make sure you really want this,” I say as he moves one of my hands away from my eyes. “Because you still have time to run.”

He shakes his head, his tongue slipping out of his mouth to wet his lips. “No running here,” he whispers in a raspy voice that I know only means one thing—he wants me. “Ever.” He moves my other hand away from my face then pins my arms above my head.

A while ago, the movement would have sent my heart soaring and not in a good way. But now… well, it freaking soars like a bird high up in the sky never wanting to return to land ever. It soars because it’s free. It soars for him.

“You want me,” I tease as he leans down to kiss me.

“You’re right,” he says. “And then I want to give you your present.”

“But you already gave me my present.” I pat my pocket where the tickets to the concert are that he gave me. He said it was for a redo of a night that should have been special, but he couldn’t give it to me then, but he was ready now to give me everything I deserve—his words not mine. My mom practically fainted when he said it. And me, well I think I fell in love with Kayden even more.

“Yeah, but that one was only the first part.” He kisses me, then softly bites my bottom lip before he leans back for air. “There’s more,” he breathes against my lips, coming in for another kiss. “But you have to wait.”

“Until when?” I wonder, my heart skipping a beat as his hands wander for the button of my jeans.

“Until we’re done with this.” He gives me a wicked smile as he flicks my button undone.


My Review

I fell in love with Callie and Kayden in The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden. I was still thinking of their story days after finishing that read. Their story continued in The Redemption of Callie & Kayden. When I reached the end of that book, I immediately was wanting the final installment of their story.

With The Resolution of Callie & Kayden, we see the couple still healing from their individual pasts. While Callie is doing better, Kayden is struggling. He is having difficulty letting go of his abusive past. Callie and Kayden find closure in Resolution and are moving towards their future together.

I really liked that we see some growth in how both Callie and Kayden deal with their relationships with family. We Callie spending time with her brother. And we see Kayden’s brother acting the protective older brother. This final installment had me glued to the pages, needing to know that Callie and Kayden were going to make it to their happy ever after.
