ABOUT THE BOOK

Until he meets Joanna and she turns his life upside down.

Children's book author. Mini-horse rescue owner. She believes every life has value, and that no matter how lost someone is there is always a way back. She's determined to be his friend, but she's too sweet, too sexy to resist, and way too interested in another man.

REVIEW

You had me at "Starring: Clay Landon as Fairy Godfather Extraordinaire."  Ruth has once again written a romantic comedy that is equal in both.  The best thing about Bradford is that he has been the straight man to everyone else's…

Book Review - Third Life by Noelle Adams

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK


First time. Second chance. Third life.

My first time was with him--one hot weekend with a handsome stranger. It was supposed to be a one-time thing, but he keeps asking me to meet him all over the world, and I keep saying yes.

I don't know anything about him except his first name. That's the way he likes it. He's too old for me, and he's hiding secrets, but I'm not going to be able to keep my heart out of it for long.

REVIEW

This is one of those stories that catch you off-guard.  I was expecting a sweet and easy read, but what I got was actually a complex story that sucked me in from the beginning and didn't let go until I finished.  I really liked learning about Richard and was invested in learning more about the mystery surrounding him.  I recommend for anyone looking for a quick read with good characters and fans of Noelle Adams.

Book Review - Crossing Double by Tamra Baumann (Free on Kindle Unlimted)

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK


Brent Keiser, a certified genius, and forensic accountant works for the FBI mostly because of their awesome retirement plan. Growing up homeless with a ditzy mother can make a guy be a little obsessive in the saving for the future department. But just once, he'd like to get out in the field, maybe actually fire a gun or chase after a bad guy like the other agents. Although, solving crimes with his calculator is statistically much safer, and he'd live to enjoy that house on the beach he saves for each payday.

Sara Chapman used to be a card-carrying member of the Hollywood rich kid pack, but after serving community service, she said goodbye to her spoiled friends. Seeing the plight of the homeless up close and personal gave her new direction. But that doesn’t deter the annoying paparazzi. Her parents were the famous ones, not her. Sara’s only recent claim to fame was for having the most embarrassing public break up in the history of the entire world. Unfortunately, …

Book Review: Dirty Hookup by Mira Lyn Kelly

Title: Dirty Hookup
A Slayers Hockey Series Novel Author: Mira Lyn Kelly Genre: Hockey Romance Release Date: March 31, 2020


Blurb
One look and I know… this chick hates me.
I should walk away, find some puck bunny to gleefully sit on my lap and tell me what a big, hot, hockey stud I am--totally true, BTW. But there’s just something about this feisty redhead I can’t let go. She’s got an edge to her that’s sexy as hell and a smart mouth that’s been tying me up since the night I met her.

She tells me to forget it, we’re not happening. But this isn’t the kind of woman a guy ever forgets. Especially when the air starts to sizzle and pop every time we get within ten feet of each other. She’s in my head and under my skin, and all I can think about is the way she looked at me that one time. Like she already knew how it could be between us.

I’m not the kind of guy a girl like her takes home… But maybe I want to be.
