Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis

playingforkeepsIf you’re planning on falling in love… 

When it comes to the confident, charismatic Caleb Parker, Sadie Lane feels the spark—the kind that comes from rubbing each other the wrong way. She’s a tattoo artist, he’s a straight-laced mogul. But after they accidentally co-rescue an abandoned dog from a storm, Sadie sees a vulnerable side to the seemingly invincible hottie.

you’d better be sure… 

Caleb doesn’t do emotions. Growing up the underdog, he’s learned the hard way to build up an impenetrable wall. Perfect for business. Disastrous for relationships. He’s never worried about it before—not until he finally gets behind Sadie’s armor and begins to fall.

… someone is there to catch you. 

Both guarded and vulnerable, Sadie and Caleb are complete opposites. Or are they? Shocked at their undeniable connection, can they ever admit to wanting more? That all depends on what they’re each willing to risk.

MY THOUGHTS

I can’t get enough of this series and the fountain of Love!

There couldn’t be two people more opposite of each other. Sadie is a tattoo artist and Caleb a venture capitalist. Even though they have mutual friends and run in the same circles, they haven’t ever really been that close. Until a stormy night finds the two of them rescuing a dog that neither wants to let go of. So the two find themselves spending more time together as they co-own Lollipop – a three legged beauty who has taken to both Sadie and Caleb and can’t live without them.

Caleb has had his eye on the standoffish Sadie for the past year. He finds himself drawn to her but her preconceived notions of who he is has left a wall between the two. Now that they are co-parenting the spirited Lollipop he’s found his way in. But the walls Sadie has erected are going to be harder to chip away than he thought. He has all the time in the world, and Sadie starts to see a side of “Suit” that he never would have imagined existed.

But Sadie has some major secrets that she knows as soon as Caleb finds out about, he’ll go running in the opposite direction as fast as he can. Caleb though is playing for keeps. Now if he can only convince “The Covent” to butt out of his personal life, so Sadie doesn’t go running scared.

I love the banter between Sadie and Caleb. I loved his patience with her and how he was so gentle and so aware of things Sadie was thinking and feeling and how he opened up to her about his past.

Another great book in the Heartbreaker Bay Series!

Book Excerpt

“Sadie.”

She shook her head.

“Look at me. Please?”

It was the damn please that had her opening her eyes. He’d closed the gap so that if she so much as took a breath, they’d be touching.

So she did just that. She took a deep breath, and then their bodies were up against each other, his warm and hard. Everywhere. “What’s happening?” she whispered.

“I believe you’re deciding between kicking me in the nuts and kissing me.” One side of his mouth curved very slightly as he lifted their still joined hands above her head, against the wall.

“But that last part might just be in my dreams.”

“Yes,” she whispered.

“Yes, it’s just in my dreams?”

She meant to say yes again, she really did.

She even opened her mouth to say it, because this was insane, this incredible . . . craving she had for him. It made no sense. Less than no sense, and yet . . .

She went up on tiptoe and touched her mouth to his.

Trails of Love by Melissa Foster

tol_final_2019

When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed’s new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace’s sister Morgyn’s business endeavor.

Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn’t ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

Book Excerpt

“What are your three most favorite things?” Morgyn asked as she strummed the guitar.
“That’s a hard one.”
“Okay, and the next two?” She bumped him with her shoulder, looking as sweet as she did sexy wearing one of his flannel shirts over her dress.
He loved her quirky sense of humor.
“Shouldn’t that be one of your favorite things?” he teased.
She shifted her gaze up toward the sky and strummed a faster tune, singing, “It’s your turn, not mine.”
“I’ve got a lot of favorite things.” He ran his fingers along her leg. “Your sexy legs.”
Her eyes darkened, and she played a little slower.
“And the way flecks of darker blue glitter in your eyes when you get turned on.”
“Cracker,” she said just above a whisper.
“I can’t help it that you’re beautiful.”
“Stop. You’re embarrassing me. Tell me something real.”
“That was real, and number three would be your free spirit.”
“Says Mr. Prepared, who brought a pop-up shower stall, a battery-operated heater, and a Coleman stove like my grandfather used. I’m willing to bet there’s a kitchen sink around here somewhere.”
“No sink, but I can rig one up if you need it.” He leaned in for a kiss, lingering because her kisses were unlike any others. She kissed with the same energy she seemed to do everything else, giving herself over to it completely, savoring every second.
Her eyes remained closed for a few heated seconds after their lips parted. When she opened them, a sated smile appeared like a gift. He wondered if she kissed other guys like that, or if she felt the same unfamiliar, unstoppable connection he did.
“I like kissing you, sunshine.” He brushed her hair behind her ear and kissed her again, slower and sweeter than the last. “I’m adding that to my list. I think I need more than three things.”

My Thoughts

From the moment you meet Morgyn you know you’re going to love her. A free spirit, let the universe guide us kinda girl, is so special and when she meets Graham… the special because extraordinary.

Graham is a free spirit in his own right. But he’s a little more prepared, a person who likes to know what’s going on and all the risks involved. He never knew what hit him when Morgyn ended up finding him in the most specitacular way.

These two on the outside seem to be the total opposite of each other but they are so similar in so many ways. You fall in love with the prospect of “them” from the start.

I love this new branch of the Love in Bloom. Who doesn’t want more BRADENS!

Sunshine and Cracker kept me smiling and loving each page I read more and more. Another amazing story from Melissa!

Book Excerpt

Twenty-One Years, Three Months, Six Days Ago . .

“Where is it! Goddamn you, where’s it at!”

Duran spit blood out of his mouth and spoke over the ringing in his ears. “I’ll never tell you—”

Chalen the Conqueror swung his open palm again, nailing Duran’s lacerated face like a bat hitting a fastball. But it didn’t hurt as much as the other shit they’d been doing to him in this castle’s great room. They’d already pulled out his fingernails, broken all of his toes, and whipped his back until strips of his own flesh flapped against his ribs. At the moment, he didn’t have the strength to keep himself on his feet, but no worries there—two guards, with grips locked under his pits, were holding him up off the floor.

As his head flopped back into its lolling hang, he shook it to get the sweat and blood out of his eyes. In the hissing, kicking light of the hearth, the male in front of him was stocky of build and ugly of feature, an oak stump with a bulldog’s muzzle and a hungry bear’s bad fucking attitude.

“You are going to tell me the location.” Chalen took Duran by the throat with one of his meat hands. “And you’re going to do it now.”

“Sorry, not . . . a big talker—”

The conqueror grabbed onto the lower half of Duran’s face, squeezing so hard his jaw split and the inside of his mouth was forced between the hard-and-sharp of his molars. More blood welled, spilled, fell on his bare chest.

“Why are you protecting the male who put you here?” Chalen’s opaque eyes searched Duran’s expression as if he were trying to extrapolate a map of Maryland in the features. “All you need to do is tell me where that facility is.”

Duran waited for that grip to release. When it did, he spit more blood out. “I’m not . . . protecting him.”

“Then what are you doing?”

“Making sure you don’t cheat me of what’s mine.” Duran smiled, aware he must look deranged. “You kill him . . . I don’t get to.”

Chalen crossed his strong-man arms over his barrel chest. He was dressed in weapons, whatever clothes he had on underneath the holsters of guns and knives largely hidden by metal. No daggers, though. He’d never been Black Dagger Brotherhood material and not just because he was a mutt according to his lineage: Even among black market thieves, there was a code of conduct.

Not for Chalen. He had no code. Not in the Old Country, and not during his last century here in the New World.

There was only one male who was worse.

“I will break you,” Chalen said in a low voice. “And I will enjoy it.”

Duran laughed in a wheeze. “You have no idea what I’ve already been through—”

Chalen swung that palm wide again, the crack so heavy Duran lost his vision, everything going checkerboard. And then there was a drop in blood pressure, his brain emptying of oxygen, floaty disassociation riding in, a foggy savior buffering the suffering.

The sound of chains moving and gears shifting brought him back to reality. A section of the sweaty stone wall rose by inches, the great weight ascending like a gate, revealing a corridor . . .

Revealing a male who was naked but for a black hood that covered his head.

“I will make you pray for death,” Chalen said. “And when you give me what I need, you will think back to this moment. When you could have saved yourself from so much.”

Duran exhaled in a gurgle. His body was on fire, the pain burning through his veins, turning him into a semi-living, kind-of-breathing, sort-of-conscious incubator for agony.

But fuck Chalen.

“Do what you will,” he mumbled. “I’m not going to give you a goddamn thing.”

“I will make you wish you were never born.”

As the hooded male came forward, Duran was dragged over and slammed face-first down onto a table, his torso bent parallel to the floor. Turning his face to the side, he smelled the spoiled meat and rancid fat embedded in the fibers of the planks.

“Already there, asshole.”

Finding My Girl by Melissa Foster

If this is your first Melissa Foster book, please note that Finding My Girl is not a novel, a novella, or even a typical short story. It is a graphic companion booklet to the full-length contemporary romance novel, Love Like Ours, featuring Talia Dalton and Derek Grant. In Love Like Ours, one of the many ways Derek shows his love for Talia is through cute and loving sketches depicting their lives as they came together. Finding My Girl is a collection of those images, along with a couple of images that Jonah, Derek’s father, had drawn for his wife, Eva. Within these pages you will also find heartfelt messages from Derek to Talia that are not found in the original novel.  As a bonus, the first chapter of Love Like Ours is included in the back of the booklet.

MY THOUGHTS

What a great way to compliment such an amazing book! I absolutely loved Love Like Ours (my review here) and so see Derek and Talia’s love story brought to life through his drawings – it left a huge smile on my face. YOU MUST READ Love Like Ours before or either along with Finding My Girl, otherwise you just won’t get this graphic novel.

MY THOUGHTS

What a great way to end the series (although I wish it could go on forever). I have a special place in my heart for the boys of Soul Serenade and to see Gavin finally get his HEA it was perfect.

Gavin has been watching his brothers drop one by one…Marriage, kids and happiness and joy like nothing he’s ever seen. Now he wants his piece of the pie too! And he has had his sights on Cassidy for a while now. He tries relentlessly to get her to see him as more than her best friend, but the girl is stubborn and she knows what’s at stake if things don’t work out.

But what Cassidy doesn’t know is the guys of Soul Serenade, they’re not blind. And they see the way Gavin has changed since meeting Cass and how Cass is holding back even though she has feelings for Gavin. So what better way to through the two together than sending them on a scouting trip that mysteriously no one else can go on.

The two get 4 days. Gavin is set on showing Cass that he can make her his entire world and that nothing would change except his love would be in the public instead of behind closed doors. But can Cass let go of her fears that if she loses Gavin – she loses her whole world once he leaves?

I love this series, this author and LOVED Gavin and his determination to get his girl. It was a sweet end to the series and now I feel as if I need to re-read the entire series!

Love Online by Penelope Ward

LOVE ONLINE LIVE NOW

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.

I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

MY THOUGHTS

This was a really different story and I really liked it a lot. There were plenty of surprises and it was full of fun, sexy times.

I loved Ryder and his dedication to “Montana”, even with her job and how understanding he was. Ollie stole the show and I just really connected with each of the characters in the book.

I was in a bit of a book funk and this one helped pull me through. Definitely pick up Love Online!

You Promised Me Forever AMAZON.jpg

I’ve got it all, they say. I’m the starting quarterback for the best NFL team in the league. I’m rich. I’m famous. I can have any woman I want, any time I want.

Yeah, I’ve got everything—except for the one who got away. How do you move on from loving the same girl since you were in the seventh grade? She promised me forever until forever got too hard and at nineteen, she dumped me.

By text message.

Now she’s walked back into my life. Just as beautiful. Just as sweet. Just as smart. More grown up and incredibly sexy…

We’re older now. Supposedly wiser. This time, I’m going to fight for what I want, no matter how hard it gets.

This time, I’m going to make her mine.

Forever.

BOOK EXCERPT

Jordan

Of course, I’m not going to shake Amanda’s hand.

Instead I grab hold of it, that unmistakable jolt of electricity sparking when our skin connects, just like every other time we’ve touched. I pull her to me and wrap her up in my arms because I can. I’m the one who offered up the tickets so I could…what? Show off? Let her know exactly how great my life is?

I can’t lie. My life is pretty damn great. I have everything I could ever want—except for one thing.

“Hi Jordan,” she breathes against my neck, and I swear she melts into me a little. Like she can’t help herself. Like we somehow still fit together even after all these years.

Either she got smaller or I grew bigger since the last time I touched her, and I’m guessing it’s the latter. She smells familiar, yet different. Better. I recognize the scent of her shampoo, but nothing else. Her hair is longer. Thick. Dark and wavy, up in a ponytail and a little disheveled, like she’s had a long day. Her body is curvier, something teenaged Amanda would’ve never believed could happen. She still has those sexy long legs, though.

Finally, she pulls away from me, her lips curled, her eyes sparkling, nervousness written all over her face, and I watch her carefully in return, my expression as neutral as I can make it. Honestly, I’m still a little pissed over that garbage game we just played, and I’m tense like I usually am after. Her understanding gaze meets mine and I know she knows what I’m feeling. We’ve always been in tune with each other…

She’s my Mandy, all grown up. But not my Mandy anymore.

MY THOUGHTS

I LOVE Monica Murphy and I always get sucked into her books.

I did not read The Friends Series where I would have met Tuttle and Amanda… but that didn’t take away from the book for me and this book can totally be read as a standalone.

From the start, I loved Tuttle and how he wasn’t going to allow Amanda to slip away from him once again. Jordan was committed and sexy and sweet and so so swoony. I wanted to shake Amanda at times, but I could totally see where her doubt was coming from. I see that this is labeled Forever  Yours #1 so I am praying we get more of Amanda and Jordan in the future! I think I love them just as much as Drew and Fable – and that’s saying a lot! LOL
