BOOK SUMMARY:

Have you ever thought of packing up everything you own and moving halfway across the country?

I’m talking about leaving your entire life behind—friends, family, school—with no turning back. No? Me either, but that was before a week of spring break changed my life forever. Before I did something I never thought I’d do at twenty-two. Before I fell in love with Grey.

Sometimes happily ever after isn’t always what you think it will be.

My Review

I enjoyed this continuation of Eden and Grey’s story.  Eden makes the move to Texas, joining Grey at the Palm Palace.  Long distance relationships are hard but starting a life together can be difficult too.  From the start with Eden’s cross country drive, I was turning the pages to get to her reunion with Grey and couldn’t stop reading until the very last page.

T. A. Foster gives us a realistic story that is very relatable with likable characters.  We see Eden and Grey’s relationship deepening as both characters grow and develop.   I’m hoping to read about a couple of secondary characters in a future story.

Author information:

T.A. Foster once spent a monthlong spring break on South Padre Island, where she soaked in the Texas sun, beach, and learned what real Texas country music is. Sometimes fiction does spring from reality.

She grew up catching rays and chasing waves along the North Carolina Outer Banks and now resides in the state with her adventurous pilot husband, two children, and two canine kiddos.

T.A. has an undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a graduate degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. When she’s not chasing her two-legged and four-legged children or trying to escape for date night, you can find her reading, writing, or planning her next beach trip.

Book Blurb:

The wait is over. They fell in love in Melt Into You, but that was only the beginning. Now New York Times bestselling author Roni Loren dials up the passion as three lovers reinvent the meaning of togetherness and find out if love is truly enough…

Two dominant men, one beautiful woman. Jace Austin knows he doesn’t have what you’d call a conventional relationship with Evan and Andre, but it works. Boy, does it work—until Evan starts acting strangely and Andre’s ex-fiancée pops back into his life, unbalancing a perfectly happy threesome. Jace is forced to face the unthinkable: that the two people he cares most about in this world are in danger of slipping away from him.

So Jace plans a surprise getaway to a secluded mountain cabin for the three of them. And he knows exactly what he needs to do: give both his lovers a fantasy week they’ll never forget. And the possibilities for pleasure are endless. But when they get snowed in and the heat between them reaches a fever pitch, secrets come out. And Evan has one that could change all their lives forever.

 

Excerpt:

“Martine?” Andre glanced down the hallway and headed into the kitchen, trying to keep his annoyance from bleeding into his voice. “How did you get this number?”

“Don’t be mad, but I called your mom. My mother still had her number. Apparently, they still go to the flea market together sometimes on the weekend.”

“I see.” Great, now his mom would be calling him about that nice Velasquez girl. Because although his parents knew about his unconventional relationship with Evan and Jace, they weren’t exactly enthusiastic fans. His mother wanted big church weddings and piles of grandkids from her children, not a son who brought home a tattooed gringo and the girl they shared. He had a feeling his mom hadn’t completely gone off on him yet because she thought he was going through a phase.

“So I know I’m supposed to wait for you to call me or whatever, but I have the afternoon off today and I thought maybe we could grab that lunch.”

“Marti—”

“I know it’s last minute, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about seeing you the other night, and I just want to talk and catch up. Things haven’t been—well, they haven’t been so great for me lately, and it’d be nice to spend some time with an old friend from back home.”

The request was delivered with that trademark sweetness of hers that wedged guilt right through him. He knew this was more than an I-want-to-catch-up-with-an-old-friend thing. But he also sensed she was being honest about going through a tough time. He could hear that lonely edge to her voice. He also had no interest in being the guy to fix that for her. “I’m sorry to hear things aren’t going well, but I’m leaving town for a week in a little while. And even if I weren’t, it’s not a good idea for us to strike up that kind of friendship.”

“Don’t trust yourself with me?” she asked, her tone light and teasing but the challenge there.

He raked a hand through his hair, his patience on a short tether. “It’s not that at all. But I’m friends with people who respect my relationship and my choices, and I get the feeling that you don’t.”

He could picture her pressing her lips together on the other end. “Your mother said you have problems with commitment and that’s why you can’t decide between your boyfriend and your girlfriend. She said I should—”

Unbelievable. “This conversation is done, Martine.”

“Wait!”

He blew out a breath, silently counting to ten in his head.

“Look, I’m sorry. This is all coming out wrong. Of course, I wouldn’t try to mess up things for you if you’re happy, but I don’t see why we can’t be friends.”

“Fine. You want new friends? When I come back, you can have lunch with me . . . and Evan and Jace. You’ll have three new people to talk to.”

“You want me to—? I—”

“Is that a problem?”

“No,” she said quickly, sounding not at all confident. She was probably already picturing him open-mouth kissing Jace in public or something. “I mean, I guess that could work.”

“Great. I’ll give you a call when we get back. Until then, don’t call this number. I’m on vacation from everything and everyone.”

He tossed his phone on the counter with a sound of frustration.

“Was that the ex?”

Andre whirled around, finding Jace standing in the doorway of the kitchen. “Yeah. She tracked down my number through my mother.”

Jace smirked. “Mama Medina still trying to play matchmaker to get you away from your life of sin?”

Andre shook his head. “Something like that. My mom informed her that I have issues with commitment. I can’t even decide on a gender to love.”

Jace laughed. “Nice. Think what we have in mind will make a difference for her?”

“Doubtful unless there’s a priest involved at some point,” Andre said, picking up his phone and tucking it in his pocket. “But I’m over it. I’m too old to worry about what other people think, even if those people are in my own family.”

“At least your sister is on your side.”

Andre smiled. That’s because Cela was doing her own living in sin with her boyfriend/dom and was thankful that most of the family’s frowns were aimed Andre’s way instead of hers. Though, he didn’t doubt that Cela was also genuinely happy for him. “So is our girl all ready?”

“Yeah, the water turned off a few minutes ago.”

“Think she’s figured anything out yet?”

“Nope. I put the bags in the car so she wouldn’t see them and told her we were going to drop her off at work today.” Jace’s grin was devious, and childlike enthusiasm lit his face.

Andre walked over and threw his arm over Jace’s shoulders. “Ready to do some kidnapping?”

“Think if we tie her up and carry her out, a neighbor will report us?”

Andre snorted. “Yes. Let’s not get thrown in jail today, all right?”

“Damn. That would’ve been fun.”

“You’re a sick fucker, J.”

“And you two love me, so what does that make y’all?”

Andre led him out and toward the bedroom. “Gluttons for punishment.”

Jace glanced over at him, giving him that slow up-and-down look that could make Andre’s best intentions derail in a flash. “Lucky for us all, that’s my favorite kind of people.”

 

 My Review

 I love Roni Loren’s Loving on the Edge series. I was excited to see that we were going to get a little more Jace, Andre and Evan. Melt Into You gives us their story and happily ever after, but what happens after the HEA? Forever Starts Tonight picks up their story with them living together and making their commitment work.

Ms Loren gives us a hot, sexy, emotion packed follow up with Forever Starts Tonight. I enjoyed getting just a bit more of Jace, Andre and Evan and I’m looking forward to the next Loving on the Edge book.

Great Getaway with IT’S ALWAYS BEEN YOU by Victoria Paige

“I’ll wait forever, sunshine. I loved you then. I love you now. I’ll always love you.”

Former Navy SEAL Travis Blake is a rising star in the security business. In two short years, Blake Security Inc. has become highly sought after by the who’s who in Washington DC.
But unbeknownst to many, Travis is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years before. He carries with him the guilt of not being there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. He has buried his wife, but his heart refuses to accept that the body six feet under is hers. His obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—and everything is not what it seems.
Caitlin Kincaid has been on the run for a while. The sum of her memories began three years ago when she awakened with a broken arm and leg and a severe concussion. Hunted down by a secret group within the U.S. government, her companion persuades her to stay off the grid because of the standing kill order on their heads. One night, while fleeing assassins, she is left on the side of the road with a cryptic message: “It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”
When Travis receives news that the woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to her. He is unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when Caitlin looks at him with no recognition in her eyes. Amnesia is a challenging enough obstacle for winning the love of his life back. But with lies defining the past three years of her life, Caitlin becomes wary of anyone’s help.
Love was never the problem. A marriage cannot survive without trust. As sinister forces threaten the bond they are trying to rebuild, trust must come quickly or one of them will die.
* Strong sexual content and language. Disturbing situations.

Excerpt

She kissed him back. She fucking kissed him back.
He broke the kiss and held her eyes. “That right there tells me otherwise. We’ll find each other again. And, sunshine, you’re not building a wall between us because I’ll take it down with a sledgehammer. Fucking amnesia has nothing on us, Caitlin. What we had before was once in a lifetime. You think having it, losing it, and getting it back, I’m going to let it slip through my fingers again? You married a SEAL. We’re tenacious, persistent, and we don’t know how to fail. You think with the greatest battle in my life, and that’s winning you back—I’m going to fuck up now? Not happening. You were mine. You will be mine again.”

Book 2 – expected release 2015

 
Beatrice Porter swore she would never fall in love with a man like her father. For years she watched her mother self-destruct in bitterness, married to someone who only lived for his job. Gabriel Sullivan was such a man—a Navy SEAL, a man who puts duty and country above all else. Yet falling in love with him was inevitable. She thought their relationship could work until he’d left her one night with a broken heart and her pride in tatters.
Three years later, he’s back and he wants a second chance.
Having committed atrocities for the greater good, Gabe has nothing left but darkness inside him. The only flicker of light is the memory of Beatrice—a woman embedded so deeply under his skin.
Winning her back won’t be easy for she has erected walls that only the toughest of SEALs can hope to scale.
When Beatrice finds herself at the center of a deadly game, Gabe discovers the eerie similarities of the killer’s MO to a former assassin.
A link to a past, a truth that may cost him the woman he loves, distancing himself may be the only option to save Beatrice, but he is done walking away.
Gabe just needs to convince her this time he is all in, and a future with her is the only redemption worth having.
Review
 It’s Always Been You is a fast paced, smooth read filled with emotion and suspense. Travis and Caitlin are strong characters that you immediately want to fit together.

Ms Paige delivers on a thrilling suspense with twists and the best kind of love story. This was my first Victoria Paige book but won’t be my last.

Meet Victoria Paige

I work as a freelance database administrator, and when I’m not geeking out, I write romantic suspense novels. I live in Richmond, Va—less than two hours away from Washington DC—so most of the settings of my books are in the nation’s capital—of course, I’m not averse to creating fictional towns and cities. 😉
When I’m not arguing with the alpha male characters in my head, I love to watch high-octane action movies. I think Jack Bauer is the shit, which is why most of my characters are such badasses bent on saving the world from evil doers.
I love reading adult contemporary, paranormal, urban fantasy, historical, romantic suspense, and a few new adult fiction as well as military non-fiction.

The Outsider Chronicles, #2

(stand-alone)

New Adult/Adult Contemporary

Release: September 9, 2014

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iBooks

When Liv Bennett said good-bye to her sinkhole of a hometown, she planned to leave that chapter of her life behind forever. But forever turned out to only be three years.

After her addict of a mother up and disappears, Liv returns to what she considers her own personal hell smack in the middle of nowhere Nevada to take care of her two younger sisters, and she promptly reinstitutes the golden rule that got her through her first nineteen years of life without getting knocked up, roughed up, or messed up: don’t date the local boys and, god forbid, don’t fall in love with one of them.

It isn’t long before that golden rule is put to the test.

Will Goods grew up in the next trailer over, but the wild, careless boy who used to tear up the town with his three brothers has morphed into someone else so completely, he’s almost unrecognizable. The quiet, contemplative man who works on cars every night and takes care of his mentally ill mother every day is nothing like the local boys Liv grew up avoiding.

But when Liv considers suspending her golden rule just this once, she finds out something about Will that will change everything.

Will Goods isn’t who he used to be—he’s not even the man Liv thinks she’s gotten to know over the summer. He’s become someone else entirely.

He’s become . . .

Damaged Goods.

My Review

Nicole Williams has another awesome series with The Outsider Chronicles.

After escaping her hometown, Liv has returned to take care of her younger sisters.  Will lives next door and is the Goods son home taking care of his mother.  This unexpected match up kept me turning the pages and wanting to know what was next.

I loved Liv and Will.  I was interested in knowing more about them individually and enjoyed seeing how they were together.  Damaged Goods hooked me from the beginning and has me looking forward to the next story in The Outsider Chronicles.

ABOUT IGNITED

 

He promised to take me as far as I could go—and I wanted to go to the edge.
 
My whole life has been a cover, a con, a lie. I was born into the grift, raised on the thrill of playing someone I’m not. As a rule, I never let anyone get too close—until Cole August makes it impossible for me to stay away.

Cole is tough, sexy, and intensely loyal, yet his secrets are dark and his scars run deep. Not many women can handle his past, or the truth behind his fierce demands. But something about him beckons me—and our desire is a game I must play.

I know he’s dangerous, that even his touch is trouble, but what is passion without a little risk?

MY REVIEW 

We get a fast paced, hot and sexy read with Ignited by J Kenner.  From the start to the end, I was riveted to Cole and Kat’s story.

Kat is a grifter that is looking to settle down with the purchase of her first home.  She’s decided that she needs to take action on the what she feels for Cole.  Cole is a successful businessman and artist with a dark past.  He tries to protect Kat from himself but cannot deny their mutual attraction.

The chemistry leaps off the pages and kept me turning the pages.  I found myself wanting to know where their story would take us next.  I thoroughly enjoyed Ignited, Cole and Kat’s story hit the mark as a sexy, hot read with twists that kept the action moving.  And from an art gallery opening in Chicago, a flight to California and the promise of Europe, Ignited was a great getaway!

Review – NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT by Linda Morris

nice-work-if-you-can-get-it cover

Adult Contemporary Romance

Released August 5, 2014

Publisher: Swoon Romance

Andrew Sheffield and Ally Arietta meet in paradise: Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They have nothing in common: He’s a workaholic CEO, embittered after the failure of his first marriage. She’s been caring for her ailing Sicilian grandmother who’s just passed away, and now she’s ready to put herself first for a change. The sparks fly, but Andrew is no easy guy to get along with. His workaholic ways have them bickering from the start, but Ally decides that doesn’t matter: It’s just a fling.

But when Ally nearly dies during a para-sailing accident, Andrew realizes she means much more to him than casual sex. The accident causes Ally to run scared: She’s vowed to put herself first after years of self-sacrifice. She breaks it off and returns to Chicago to resume the life she interrupted to care for her grandmother, but she hasn’t seen the last of Andrew, who is determined not to let her walk away.

My Review

Who wouldn’t love a beach getaway in sunny Mexico?  Linda Morris takes us to Playa del Carmen for a girl’s getaway with Ally and Serena.  With hot, sunny beach days with frozen drinks and views of hot guys, sounds like paradise.  And just what Ally needs to start living her life.

Ally is finally putting herself first in her life rather than taking care of everyone else.  When she sees Andrew, Ally likes his looks…then she sees the smartphone attached to him.   There is an instant attraction that they don’t deny.  In both Ally and Andrew, we get characters that learn what priorities are important in getting their happily ever after.

I enjoyed NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT.  It was a fun, sweet summer read with endearing characters set in a fabulous resort destination.  I’m looking forward to reading more from Linda Morris.
