THE RULE MAKER (RULES BREAKERS) BY JENNIFER BLACKWOOD

 

 

Release Date:  January 16, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Ten Steps to Surviving a New Job:

1. Don’t sleep with the client. It’ll get you fired. (Sounds easy enough.)

2. Don’t blink when new client turns out to be former one-night stand.

3. Don’t call same client a jerk for never texting you back.

4. Don’t believe client when he says he really, really wanted to call.

5. Remember, the client is always right—so you can’t junk punch him when he demands new design after new design.

6. Ignore accelerated heartbeat every time sexy client walks into room.

7. Definitely ignore client’s large hands. They just mean he wears big gloves.

8. Don’t let client’s charm wear you down. Be strong.

9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the client. You’ll lose more than your job—maybe even your heart.

10. If all else fails, see rule number one again.

REVIEW:  THE RULE MAKER (RULES BREAKERS) BY JENNIFER BLACKWOOD

 

The Rule Maker (The Rule Breakers, #2)The Rule Maker by Jennifer Blackwood

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The good, the bad and the crazy sum up Ryder and Zoey. Zoey is a force of nature. She has a talent for design and a penchant for ending up in embarrassing situations. Case in point: sleeping with a client is a definite no - no, sleeping with the client's brother, a maybe. The Rule Maker is an amusing blend of temptation and heart. All kinds of wrong, she never feel so right. Jennifer Blackwood does guilty pleasure and she got it right. I missed out on The Rule Book, but that's easily rectifiable. The Rules Breakers series is a winner.

ARC Review: Let It Burn (The Barrington Billionaires) by Ruth Cardello

The Barringtons are far from perfect but underneath the drama, scheming, heartache and secrets lies a bond of love that can't be broken.

Let It Burn takes one step closer to some much needed answers, but within it's pages is a quest for redemption. With some help from friends both old and new, Ms. Cardello delivers a message of healing while building a love that was years in the making. Helene and Andrew were meant to find each other.

ARC Review: Big Shot by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

 

Wes Sinclair had it going on that's for sure but the perfect book boyfriend was best friend Richard. Wes was "dream man" material with his sexy smile, arrogant demeanor and bedroom charm, however Richard with his smart mouth, hearty devotion and sense of humor was addictive as well. Natalie had it made on both sides of the spectrum. A good thing Richie boy was gay because Wes would have had some stiff competition. Big Shot had me in stitches when I wasn't salivating over the fireball that is Wes and Natalie. The battle of wills became a showdown of the heart. Ms. Phillips and Ms. Wilde are the power duo of the romance world. They seem to always get it right.

Release Date:  January 17, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Sometimes enemies make really fun bedmates…

Navy SEAL Brayden Lucas assumes that when he detains a burglar at the Caribbean plantation he’s house-sitting, it’ll be a straightforward matter of figuring out who the would-be thief is and turning her in to the authorities if need be.

That was before he tied her up, and they started talking.

But the truth is there’s nothing straightforward about Arielle Day. Not the way she lights him up inside, or the secrets she’s obviously keeping.

And nothing is going to stop Brayden from exploring the explosive chemistry between them…

TELL ME TRUE (THE CINDERELLA PROJECT) BY ALLY BLAKE

 

 

Release Date:  January 17, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

April Swanson is so hopeful about all the possibilities New Year’s might bring, she’s practically Pollyanna. She’s hardly wishing for the world, after all – just a little less family crazy and the promotion she's perfect for. Surely then she can finally let loose and not strive to be such a good girl all the time.

For reformed bad boy, Finn Ward, hope is a four letter word, yet he has a New Year’s wish of his own - to silence his dark and twisted past before it unravels his future and hurts the people he cares about. No matter what.

So why would fate trick two such disparate souls into a fake first date? Maybe because they’ve both made the wrong wish...

REVIEWTELL ME TRUE (THE CINDERELLA PROJECT) BY ALLY BLAKE

 

 Tell Me True (The Cinderella Project, #3)Tell Me True by Ally Blake

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The Cinderella Project series blends the magic of adolescence with the drama of real life. The concept is complex and innovative, but may not always work. Tell Me True gives an optimist, an eccentric and a reformed bad boy center stage. April was flaky, Hazel flighty and Finn a hard to read puzzle, but for all of the craziness, Ms. Blake never skimped on the charm. Tell Me True, will not solve wars or mend broken hearts but in a world of chaotic turmoil, April, Hazel and Finn served a more important purpose. To take a reader out of their head and bring on a smile. It did what it was meant to do.

REVIEW: ETHAN (FARRADAY COUNTY) BY CHRIS KENISTON

 

Ethan (Farraday Country Book 5)Ethan by Chris Keniston

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Farradays are full of surprises, blessed with love and touched by mystery. Heaven on earth is the best way to describe this close knit family. The trials they face make them stronger. I have been looking forward to Ethan ever since Declan. The snippets about his playboy bachelor ways and the surprising twist that left him, was a priceless intro to his story. Baby Brittany is as adorable as can be. The circumstances surrounding her mother, not so much. For people like Allison and Ethan who have witnessed some of the world's ugliest moments first hand, could this surprise end up being a blessing in disguise. Ms. Keniston continues to tickle the funny bone, touch the heart and create beautiful inspiring stories.

 Sweet Somethings

 

 

SWEET SOMETHINGS BY BARBARA FREETHY

 

 

Release Date:    January 17, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes a poignant, and charming romance about going home, falling in love and finding yourself.

Roman Prescott has always lived his life in the shadows. Being invisible meant staying alive—during his troubled childhood and his years as a soldier. But when an injury sends him back to the small town of Fairhope, he can't hide from his past or the light brought forth by a beautiful pastry chef.

Having lost her parents at a young age, Juliette Adams has had her share of tragedy, but now she fills her days making sweet desserts in her bakery and trying to recapture her happy childhood. Then she meets an attractive, brooding man, who is not only tearing down her old house but might just tear apart her fragile future. She's not interested in the tragic love story she was named after—she wants a love that will lift her up, that will last, and this sexy soldier has one foot out the door.

They both know they should ignore the sparks between them, but Valentine's Day fever has lit up the town and old love letters and long-buried secrets keep bringing them together. Can these two wary souls get past their fear of loving and losing to finally win the greatest love of all?

If so, what could be sweeter than that? 

 

AUTHOR'S NOTE: 

SWEET SOMETHINGS is a full-length standalone novel. But to add a cool twist, it's set in the world of a romantic movie called COFFEE SHOP that is being released on the same day! Both stories (the book and the movie) take place in the same small coastal town, and some of the characters cross over. You can read/watch each separately without missing a beat, as they each have their own independent storylines, but if you'd love to check out both, you'll have even more fun!

Tangled Up (Taking Chances, #2)Tangled Up by Erin Nicholas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Erin Nicholas is a master at telling a story. She is one of the few authors that I have in my favorites column on every reading app from Kindle to Nook to Kobo. Her talent lies in forcing a reader to face some of the scariest moments with laughter, optimism and courage. From a father determined to protect his child in No Matter What, to a woman discovering her strengths in Completely Yours or an underdog town staring down Mother Nature's fury to protect the people and community that they love in the Taking Chances series. Tangled Up has all the heart that I've come to expect, capped off by lovable characters and temptation galore. Original, entertaining and heartwarming moments are what Tangled Up has in store. I just have three words to add. I WANT MORE.

Home Run (The Boys of Summer, #2)Home Run by Heidi McLaughlin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


What is wrong with this picture? I hate football, baseball, basketball and hockey but am a fan of sports romance. Sarah Robinson and Catherine Gayle got me curious, Skye Jordan and Carly Phillips reeled me in and authors like Heidi McLaughlin, Victoria Denault and Jami Davenport keep me hanging around. Dedicated, opinionated and full of surprises, an athlete on a mission can get the heart racing on and off the field, ice or court. The drama comes when the risks start to outweigh the gain. With Home Run, Ms. McLaughlin strikes all the right cords with her sexy bad boy and his equally tempting bad girl. Home Run has all the tools to make a fan out of a novice like me.

REVIEW: FOOL FOR LOVE ANTHOLOGY BY Beverley Oakley, Donna Cummings, Heather Boyd

 

Fool for LoveFool for Love by Beverley Oakley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Love is a multi-faceted emotion. There are so many words that can describe this one feeling from anger to lust, pain to happiness, attraction to hatred. So many feelings are wrapped up in this one word, therefore it's fitting that Fool for Love explores the effects of love both good and bad. A trio of talented authors give glimpses into the emotional havoc we can LOVE.

His Valentine's Secret by Beverly Oakley - From a painful breakup to a plot for revenge. The road to happily ever after leads Lisette on a journey of darkness and hurt pride. Can she let go of the pain of the past for a second chance at happiness?

Truly, My Love by Donna Cummings - A sham of convenience, has a surprising Twist. Ms. Cummings lightens up the mood with this adorable couple.

A Husband for Mary by Heather Boyd - A mysterious kiss leads to an all to familiar emotion. Can a leopard change it's spots? Or will risking her heart turn into Mary's biggest heartache?

Heather Boyd, Beverly Oakley and Donna Cummings approach this complex emotion with a hint of humor, a ton of mystery and a wealth of wisdom. Fool for Love is a wonderful ode to romance.

Theodora by Christina McKnight

 

 

THEODORA (LADY ARCHER'S CREED) BY CHRISTINA MCKNIGHT

 

 

Release Date:    January 17, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Friendship…

Lady Theodora Montgomery departed Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality to attend her first London Season—her three dearest friends by her side. With her sharp wit and skill on the archery field, Theo is far more interested in winning a large purse prize than securing a husband. But when she is unmasked on the tourney grounds, her face exposed to all, she fears her identity and days spent gallivanting around London will cause not only her undoing, but the downfall of her friends as well.

Loyalty…

Mr. Alistair Price, heir to the elderly Viscount Melton, arrived in London with his eight younger siblings in tow. He is charged with keeping his family name above reproach until the Season starts and his sister, Miss Adeline Price, is presented to society—though that proves far more difficult than Alistair ever expected when he discovers his rebellious sister climbing down the side of their townhouse and scurrying off to Whitechapel for an archery tournament. His focus remains on saving his family from the certain ruin and disgrace Adeline’s actions invited—until Alistair catches sight of another female archer, her arrow connecting with far more than the center of her target.

And honor above all…

With Theodora’s future—and that of her friends—in jeopardy, will she agree to a marriage devoid of affection, or risk everything for the man who won her heart?

More about the Lady Archer's Creed Series

A love of archery brings four young girls together to form The Lady Archer’s Creed. Through their mutual love of the sport, they solidify an unbreakable bond, and each woman has a unique quality that adds to their dynamic friendship:

Theodora, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book One)
Lady Theodora with her sharp mind and love of academics becomes the perfect archery coach. Despite being the last to join their group, and the obvious outcast, she will risk her future for her friends.

Georgina, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book Two)
Lady Georgina makes the perfect financier. The forgotten daughter of a wealthy duke, she seeks to belong to something—or someone—by any means necessary.

Adeline, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book Three)
Miss Adeline is a natural leader. Having grown up in a large and often spirited family, she now allows no one to place her in the shadows.

Josephine, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book Four)
Lady Josephine, having a sweet and impressionable nature, strives to please everyone—and keep their bond intact, even after they return to London for the Season.

Adeline, Georgie, Theo, and Josie live each day by the Lady Archer’s Creed, which they developed during their school days at Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality. “Friendship, loyalty, and honor above all” is their mantra. Now, as they face the challenges that come with adulthood, the creed is more important than ever.

REVIEW:  THEODORA (LADY ARCHER'S CREED) BY CHRISTINA MCKNIGHT

 

Theodora (Lady Archer's Creed #1)Theodora by Christina McKnight

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Positivity. Such a big word, with a simple meaning that means so much. I am drawn to strong heroines. So many times, women are looked at as in need of a rescuer but Ms. McKnight has spotlighted the opposite with her Lady Archer's Creed series. Strength of character breeds strong friendships, fearless women and great storytelling. I can go on all day about Theodora and her band of courageous compadres but the greatest message of all within the pages of this novel is: There is no one mold for a person to fit into. We are special for what we are and that inner light that sets our course not only makes us unique but beautiful.

LIFE OF THE PARTY (CALYPSO FALLS) BY KRIS FLETCHER 

 

 

Release Date:    January 17, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

In this all-new contemporary romance series, the five Elias sisters of Calypso Falls, New York, discover that love sometimes arrives in surprising ways...

Jenna Elias was always the life of the party, coasting on her charm and beauty, hiding the shame of the scandal surrounding her absentee father, a corrupt politician. But the party ended all too soon with an injury that left her partially paralyzed and a husband who simply left her. Now, at age thirty, she’s back in Calypso Falls. She leads a simple existence working in her sister’s coffee shop, but Jenna misses the joy she once had in her life. Then Cole Morrissey walks into the coffee shop.

As idealistic as he is sexy, the local lawyer is running for mayor of Calypso Falls. Drawn to Jenna’s quick wit and radiance, he asks her to volunteer for his campaign. As the two start working together, there’s no denying the powerful attraction they feel for each other. A desktop makeout session leads to much more. But when Jenna’s dad returns to Calypso Falls and wants to be a part of her life again, the association could spell political suicide for Cole—and the end of a once-in-a-lifetime chance at true love.

REVIEW: LIFE OF THE PARTY (CALYPSO FALLS) BY KRIS FLETCHER

 

Life of the Party (Calypso Falls, #1)Life of the Party by Kris Fletcher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It takes an excessive amount of energy to play the clown. To paste on a smile and put on a compelling show, when the world is falling apart around you. Oh, to be that girl. Kris Fletcher gives a front row seat to the roller coaster drama that Is Jenna Elias' life. From the good time girl who can turn on the charm. To the broken woman working to bounce back after numerous heartbreaks and tragic circumstances. To the woman on the verge of starting a scandal, Jenna is never dull. Jenna, may be a wild child but her spirit and heart are what I liked most about her. Cole was the spark that lit the fuse that brought joy, laughter and some of that fight back into Jenna's life. Life of the Party mixes wit with drama and delivers a gritty story of scandalous love and redemption.

DARING TO FALL (HIDDEN FALLS) BY T.J. KLINE

 

 

Release Date:    January 17, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Emma Jordan has returned home after her father’s death to run the animal sanctuary that had been his legacy. But strange things start happening, and it seems that someone is out to shut her down, someone who doesn’t mind putting lives in jeopardy to see it through. When Hidden Falls’ sexiest fireman starts to ask questions, Emma needs to make sure his charm doesn’t distract her from keeping her dreams alive.

Ben McQuaid has an obligation as a local fireman to protect the community, even from a well-meaning wildlife veterinarian who’s in way over her head. But, it’s becoming hard to keep his loyalty to the town and his desire for the pretty vet separate. As Ben and Emma become caught in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, their feelings for each other are growing.

Will they let duty drive them apart or will they dare to fall?

REVIEW:  DARING TO FALL (HIDDEN FALLS) BY T.J. KLINE

 

Daring to Fall (Hidden Falls #2)Daring to Fall by T.J. Kline

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


When it comes to heartache, T. J. Kline is synonymous with delivering the goods. Ms. Kline writes literature that stimulates the mind and breaks the heart, both qualities will have a reader sit up and take notice. Daring to Fall adds mystery to an already full emotional plate. Ben and Emma are a compelling combination but with so much going on it's sometimes hard to keep the story line straight.

SYNOPSIS

 

After being dropped from the best role she’d ever gotten, actress Roxy Cavanaugh is on a week's vacation to work on her patience.

Unfazed by her willful determination, Finn might be the first man strong enough to take her...if they don’t kill each other first.

Taming SugarTaming Sugar by Rebecca Grace Allen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Roxy led Hunter on a merry chance. Until tempted Hunter put her in her place. Rebecca Grace Allen implemented the three S's. Short, sultry and sassy. Roxy has to face her fears in order to open up her heart. Hunter is up for the challenge. Taming Sugar adds modern spice to age old vice.
