Review:

Nothing Like a Duke by Jane Ashford is a hilarious yet romantic historical read. I loved the main characters. Their arguements were amusing. The sparks that flew between was fun to follow as the clever plot unfolded. Fast-paced, exciting, and one that will keep readers constantly on their toes. I didn’t know what to expect next. From a woman trying for a Duke’s attention when his heart is set on another to…a cheater found at the card table. Then, more danger is soon discovered. The unique part about Jane Ashford’s latest title, was how intelligent and stubborn her heroine was in wanting to save herself. The restrain of any man to hold back as he watched the danger unfold to a woman he loves…was amazing. Suspenseful but good. I cant imagine any man being able to ho,d back because he knows how important it was to the woman for her to ‘save herself’. Sacrifice, determination, and a love to light up my night. This was definitely a fascinating story. A real page turner. Addictive plot lines and charming characters. Overall, I highly recommend Nothing Like a Duke to readers worldwide. 

Review: One Foot in the Grove

First in a delicious new mystery series about Eva Knox and her family’s Georgia olive plantation.

 

In the sweet Southern town of Abundance, Georgia, home of the Knox family’s olive farm, gossip isn’t the only thing that can kill you…

 

After leaving a man at the altar for the second time in her life, Eva Knox decides to head home to her family’s plantation to regroup and soak in some Southern charm.

For another, a death on her family’s farm soon makes her the lead suspect in a murder case—and the sheriff investigating is none other than Eva’s old flame Buck.

 

With the police putting the squeeze on her, it’s up to Eva and her sisters, Pep and Daphne, to figure out who could have possibly left a dead body in their olive grove. And they’ll have to catch the greasy killer quickly—because it looks like Eva has been picked as the murderer’s next victim…

Eva maked me laugh along as the clues fell into place. Suspense, intrigue, and sparks…all found inside One Foot in the Grove. This book was easy to read. Both the sheriff and leading female sleuth made fall in love with this engaging tale. I found it perfectly entertaining to read. Overall, I recommend it to readers everywhere.

Review:

Lemonade and Lies by Agatha Frost is a superb mystery. This cozy mystery novel has humor, romance, and murder. The charcaters made me laugh so hard and their dilemmas were fun to watch unfold. A family whose issues seemed big at the time seemed to have dwindled and hope appears at the end. Agatha Forst’s writing baited, lured, and hooked me immediately. Her words bring everything to life. The tale was believable. It felt like watching a real family go about their their daily lives. Except little did they know a murder was about to happen…

This is where the main characters, Julia the baker and sleuth works on solving Detective Barker’s case. Barker likes Julia a lot. Julia is recently divorcing her husband. Drama, danger, and love come their way. I really liked how Julia is a talented baker, clever sleuth, and strong enough to handle what comes her way. She makes it hard for readers to not love her. As for Detective Barker, he’s a unique man. Not many wouldn’t mind what Julia does…he accepts her the way she is. Makes my heart melt. 

Lemonade and Lies is book two in this series. I haven’t read the previous novel,but I was able to follow along easily and enjoy the story. Sweet as icing on a cake and just as addictive. Overall, I highly recommend it Agatha Frost’s book to readers everywhere.

Review:

Eleanor Meyers has once again, proven herself a worthy writer of historical romances. I found myself dragged into her time period where society rules were difficult and frustrating. Especially, if love was in the equation. A certain way of etiquette was to be expected always…I found it funny, how both characters wanted more than anything to still be in each other’s arms…but couldn’t. Their struggles are sweet, enticing, and addictive. The writing style is entertaining. The plot engaged me in every scenes. I felt like I was watching a movie versus reading words off a page. Fast-paced, intriguing, and sexy. I love the heat tha comes from every novel by Eleanor Meyers…she creates the most intense yet pleasurable reads while maintaining a clean romance. That is a magically talent many lack. But with her, it comes in heaps. 

The Gentleman’s Law on Love is a round of mystery. Leading two brilliant characters on a chase for answers. Once the answers are found, their romance will have bloomed. It’s only a matter of time before one or both explodes from the intensity of the raw attraction. Love pure and simple. I loved watching Guy Elkin the Viscount warm to the beauty with blue piercing eyes…a siren to his very soul. An adventure of a lifetime waited me inside this exciting new book. I loved how the leading lady, has the talent of a writer…and how her writing undoes the man of her dreams…perfect romance. Overall, I highly recommend this title to all. 

Review: I Dared the Duke



Synopsis:

DARE TO FALL IN LOVE

Alexander Savage, the Duke of Blackshire, is known throughout the ton for three things: the burn scars on his neck, his ornery disposition, and the trail of broken hearts behind him. None of which would concern Miss Elizabeth Lacey in the least—if she weren’t living under his roof. As his grandmother’s companion, Beth is all too concerned with the moody and compelling duke. Incensed by his plans to banish the sweet dowager duchess to the country, Beth refuses to do his bidding. If Alex wants her help, he’s going to have to take her dare…and grant her three wishes.

Alex adores his grandmother, which is precisely why she must leave. A string of unfortunate incidents has him worried for the safety of everyone around him—including the dowager’s loyal and lovely companion, Beth. But the notorious wallflower isn’t as meek as she appears, and as their battle of wills heats up, so does Alex’s desire. He’s dangerously close to falling in love with her…and revealing secrets he’d rather keep hidden. How can he convince her that his darkest days are behind him—and that, for the first time in forever, his heart is true?

I Dared the Duke continues Anna Bennett’s Regency-era romance series, The Wayward Wallflowers.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

I Dared the Duke by Anna Bennett is the hottest historical read. The main female character does exactly as the title suggests…she dared the Duke in granting his grandmother three wishes. Most of which he really didn’t want to grant but upon seeing his grandmother so happy he couldn’t take back the wishes. 

Alex comes back home only to find a strange beauty in his house. She tries explaining why she’s there but he won’t have it. Seeking his grandmother, he soon finds the woman has worked her way into his grandmother’s heart. Beth is a beauty for the eyes. He tries to convince her to leave his house but sees that request would only hurt his grandmother. Alex soon learns a lot about Beth and he feels like a heel for calling her a Wilting Wallflower…

Beth and her sister were called the Wilting Wallflowers and it has been hard to rush it off…then fate has it that she meets the man who gave them the name. He’s known as a player. A Duke who is an endless flirt and tough to converse with…until Beth gets to know him. Something about him both lures and keeps her away from him. But not for long…

I Dared the Duke is full of heat, compassion, trust and danger. Someone is trying to kill the Duke. So far, the identity of the killer is unknown. There are suspects…but drawing out a killer will prove most deadly…Anna Bennett has captured my full attention in this novel. I was entertained from the beginning to end. Enticing, engaging, and funny too. I loved how Beth and Alex argued and how perfect they were. Overall, I highly recommend this title to readers worldwide.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

The Cosy Coffee Shop of Promises by Kellie Hailes is brilliant. Her story captures my heart and soul. The characters are opposites in ways but same in other aspects. Both work hard, have their own business, and have family issues. Sweet, seductive, and hilarious. Kellie Hailes has a knack for dragging readers further into the book. The plot was interesting. It kept me intrigued. Two young people with businesses close to one another go head-to-head in competition. Then, an unexpected fate happens causing them to make a deal. This deal will either break or make them. It has life changing consequences for both parties involved. Every day, people are constantly being battered with a particular label, which may not describe who they really are. Take the man owning the pub. Deemed as a player. Yet the little coffee shop owner finds that isn’t the case and more to the man than most could guess. Romance builds and so does the intensity of the fake engagement. Could it possible lead to more than what they thought…? The Cosy Coffee Shop of Promises is indeed just that. Promises are made and deals sought. Fighting to win and learning that there’s more to win, after being around a particular person…fate can be tricky. Or not. Kellie Hailes has masterfully woven the best romantic tale ever. I loved it. Couldn’t stop reading it. I finished it within an hour. Overall, I highly recommend it to all.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Rosie’s Little Cafe on the Rivera by Jennifer Bohnet was an exciting read. Filled with a lot of action, food, and a promise of romance. Little did Rosie think that not only would she be opening up her dream, but also find love too. Only it was a whole lot more complicated than that. A mysterious man pops up, asking her if she needs help. Rosie instantly judged him to be a bum…and it runs out that she was wrong on so many levels. Turns out he was much more than she could imagine. The scene where she found out exactly who is was…was priceless. I can definitely see the emotions crossing her face as the realization of the information dawned on her. Quite funny. Jennifer Bohnet definitely took me away from my cold winter overcast day and straight into a sunny world. Full of surprises. Love happened when it was least expected. The food is to die for…and the characters lured me further into the story. The plot itself was well-written and engaging. Steady but good. I read the entire book in one sitting. Rose’s Little Cafe on the Rivera is an adventure to behold. I highly recommend it to all.

Review:

Meant to Be by Maggie McGinnis is a sweet, hot, and charming read. I couldn’t stop reading it. Meant to Be is about a woman and man finding themselves, getting past their troubles, and maybe finding love too. Both characters were the kind that immediately pulled me into their story. Each had something under their belts that needed to be told. Needed to be heard. They needed one another. But when their time together ends, it is up to the, to decide where their futures lie.

Meant to Be is a contemporary romance that pulls at the hearts. A young and single woman has her career crashing around her.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Rome is Where the Heart is by Tilley Tennant is superb. The title alone snagged my attention. From there, I was following a young woman who marriage and work life were dull as ever. No wonder her husband wanted a divorce. But then again, he proved to be a dirt bag…and his wanting a divorce was the best gift ever for his wife. Kate was shocked, furious, and sad her husband dumped her. But then life, presented a perfect moment for her to travel. Rome…the city all love. Once she arrives, she meets a complete stranger. A gay man whose humor and charming personality, as well as good looks, make him the perfect guy friend. He takes on helping Kate explore and taste Rome’s finest food and places. I laughed so hard. This guy is the one people should invite to all social events. He can easily make any situation fun and easy going. His friendships with Kate helps not only her and him to…then, the plot gets even more intense. Unexpected people come into their life. Each friend has a whirlwind of events that will change everything. But their friendship will continue to grow. A hot romance between Kate and an Italian man was absolutely steamy. No sex…no dirty scenes. But their chemistry sparked enough attention to keep me interested. Alessandro has a complicated life. Life dealt him a sad hand until he meet Kate while just getting off duty. From there things are interesting. I was intrigued even more to know what will happen. I hope Tilley Tennant writes another book on these characters. I have come to love each one. They have a way of pulling me into the book. Overall, Rome is Where the Heart is…is indeed the perfect romance for all. I highly recommend it.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Close to Home by Lily Everett is a stunning piece. This contemporary romance appeals to the physical and emotional side of readers. The story instantly sweeps readers off their feet. A sexy undercover FBI agent comes back home. Only to find that his wife moved a year ago, created a new life, and sent divorce papers. Talk about a blow to man’s heart and ego. Johnny won’t accept it. So, he does what any man who loves his wife does. Goes chasing after her. Make her love him again. But his wife has greatly changed. Tessa has redefined herself. She won’t let others dictate her lifestyle. She has worked on being independent. She doesn’t want her husband to love her because she needs his help. Little does she know how much he loves her…and it has nothing to do with just protecting her from the world…

Close to Home shows the reality of life. Marriage isn’t always a fairy tale. Communication issues were apparent in this fictional piece as they really are in real life. Husbands not understanding women’s ways…their bafflement makes me laugh. Especially Johnny admitting he had no idea what his wife wanted back then and even now…I enjoyed reading this tale from both characters’ point of view. It wasn’t told by their view, yet Lily Everett mastered it in a way that I got to see, hear, and understand from both Johnny’s and Tessa’s sides. Overall, this romance was engaging, exciting, and super sweet. The romance is beautiful. I highly recommend it to all. 

Review: Snow Job

Due in part to their desperate situation they form an emotional bond that soon turns physical. But once the snow melts, can they make a relationship work in the world outside their ramshackle cabin?

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Snow Job by Kelly Fitzpatrick is an adventure of a lifetime. For both Natalie and Russ it was definitely a life changing event. Both got stuck and stranded in a snow storm. Leaving them inside an ugly,cold, and dirty cabin. One that had no running electricity, water, or food. Freezing their butts off and starving they eat spam and use snow for water. Struggling to survive the duration of the storm. Something more happens. Sending Natalie and Russ feeling hotter than coals on a fire. Lust. Romance. Emotions that neither wanted to feel occur. Strangers helping each other. However, when the storm ends will their hearts be one or broken? 

Kelly Fitzpatrick has created a contemporary romance novel that is both funny and sweet. An older woman keeps herself from letting the best thing ever happen. Love. Russ is a bit younger than her. That alone fuels her energy to keep the distance. But their chemistry is so intense, Natalie can’t deny it. Sex. She can’t forget him even if she tried. Her heart says yes. But her mind says no. She leaves him. However, Russ isn’t ready to call it quits. Broken heart or not, he searches until he finds her again. Natalie was easy to relate to as well as like. She’s a mother figure trying to be the best for her teenage daughter. She wants to hold her daughter forever, but knows it’s time to let go. Russ likes Natalie and her daughter. The daughter is sursprisingly smart for her age. Like a mini version of her mom. Russ comes to love them both and is willing to convince Natalie that. Only Natalie is fighting it all the way…Overall, I highly recommend Snow Job to readers everywhere.

Review: The Newcomer 




Synopsis:

In 1737, Anna Konig and her fellow church members stagger off a small wooden ship after ten weeks at sea, eager to start a new life in the vibrant but raw Pennsylvania frontier. On the docks of Port Philadelphia waits bishop Jacob Bauer, founder of the settlement and father to ship carpenter Bairn. It’s a time of new beginnings for the reunited Bauer family, and for Anna and Bairn’s shipboard romance to blossom.

But this perfect moment cannot last. As Bairn grasps the reality of what it means to be Amish in the New World–isolated, rigid with expectations, under the thumb of his domineering father–his enthusiasm evaporates. When a sea captain offers the chance to cross the ocean one more time, Bairn grabs it. Just one more crossing, he promises Anna. But will she wait for him?

When Henrik Newman joins the church just as it makes its way to the frontier, Anna is torn. He seems to be everything Bairn is not–bold, devoted, and delighted to vie for her heart. And the most dramatic difference? He is here; Bairn is not.

Far from the frontier, an unexpected turn of events weaves together the lives of Bairn, Anna, and Henrik. When a secret is revealed, which true love will emerge?

Review:

The Newcomer by Suzanne Woods Fisher is a great tale. The characters have a lot of family issues and internal struggles to sort through before all can be well. The plot is intense. Suzanne Woods Fishers leaves readers wondering what will happen. A tough yet stubborn father trying to make new lives for his family. His family especially his son, Hans, are broken. Faith, trust, and redemption are strong the,es of this novel. I enjoyed the clean and refreshing route this writer took. However, I wasn’t as excited to read through this book as fast as other Amish novels. The plot was steady and slow in other spots. The Newcomer has a lot to offer readers. The deeper meaning to family is one. Relating to the characters difficultly was easy. Adventure, troubles, and new beginnings. I liked reading this story. 

Review: Disaster at Roosevelt Ranch

Complete Stand Alone/No Cliffhanger

I slept with the wrong twin.
And all I got for it in return was a broken heart.

Oh yeah, and a baby on the way–there’s that too.

But I’m determined to make it on my own. I don’t need a man, thank you very much. Not rich, charismatic, and decidedly flighty Rex Roosevelt, and especially not his twin brother, Justin.

No matter that the gorgeous former military doctor makes my heart beat a little faster . . . and all spots lower than that pay careful, careful attention.

None of that matters. The Roosevelt men are dangerous and I’m steering clear.

The trouble is, Justin refuses to leave me be.

And deep down, I don’t want to avoid him.

Deep down, I want to be even closer.

Her love for horses has lead her back into Justin’s life. From there the shocking truth takes them on a beautiful journey. I loved the brickering between characters. Justin is the hero who is strong enough to handle any stubborn woman…and that one stubborn woman has him so tangled up inside he’s not sure to give into his heart or play it safe.

Review: June Rain


Synopsis:

June Rain. Imagine-that you are young. Imagine-that by the merest of chances you meet the love of your life. Imagine-that you experience a series of wondrous moments in which almost imperceptible events take on life-changing significance. Imagine-that you walk into a storm so vast that it seems to drain all light and color from the world, and that you emerge from it with a new understanding of life and truth and God. Imagine-yourself in a world that all at once begins to sparkle in boundless sunshine…a romance of ideas by Brandon Knightley.

Rating: 4.5 stars

Review:

June Rain by Brandon Knightley is a contemporary romance novel that is enjoyable to read. I was instantly intrigued and enlightened by both of the main characters. Each character’s personality making the novel quite interesting. Refreshing, exciting, and well-developed. The story begins in a slow pace that may distract readers from continuing…however, the pace then begins to speed up…and when it does, readers will not want to stop reading. I felt a deep connection with both Dante and Helen. Two young people in love. Their story entertained me until the ending. Once, I reached that end, I felt compelled to know more about them. I hope Brandon Knightley writes more…this book definitely hooked me into his writing. 

Brandon Knightley introduced to readers to great characters. The first is Dante. He is a young man that made me love him from the beginning. His outlook on life is one that many of us miss. It was fascinating to watch him grow from a young guy into a full man. Dante is helplessly in love with a girl name Helen. Helen is beautiful, bright, and is Dante’s other half. Their raw love and chemistry is beautiful. Both think beyond their years and are good people. It was easy to relate to them within the story. Many go without ever finding their love, yet both Dante and Helen found theirs. June Rain is a feel good romance tale that life look so much brighter. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to all.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Chase crafts a tender, hopeful family-centered romance..

She knows him by reputation…
Riley Shaughnessy knew that to stand out in his large family, he’d have to go big. Making a name for himself as a musician wasn’t easy, but he followed his dreams to rock-star success. But the relentless expectations of fans is not helping the slump he’s in now. So of course the person who attracts him is the woman who is not impressed by fame.

Which gives Riley Shaughnessy a lot to prove…
Entertainment reporter Savannah Daly is completely unfazed by pretty-boy rock stars. She’s just here to get her interview and write her story. But spending an entire month with the Shaughnessys is going to show Savannah a side of Riley she never could have guessed.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

This Is Our Song by Samantha Chase is an intoxicating contemporary read. The novel holds a lot of sass, sweetness, and intrigue. The featured couple make a great team…only if they are willing to let their hearts fall for one another. Famous rockstar singer and his big sweet loving family is enough to make any woman fall closer to the man…but still fear keeps her at bay. Even her own family loves the singer and his family. Heart melting, engaging, and definitely a page turning tale. Sexy but family orientated. A bit cheesy and a whole lot of romance. The instant sparks between the journalist and rock star are enough to heat up the day and make readers blush. I loved the way the siblings were all there together. The father and son bond was beautifully done as well. A song writer who is experiencing writer’s Block and is frustrated beyond meets a woman who isn’t happy about doing his interview. Yet when they finally meet…both can’t forget the other or let go of each other. Is it fate? 

Samantha Chase has brilliantly spun another fabulous title. I love her world of fiction. Irresistible characters, thrilling plotline, and a fast-paced tempothat will keep readers interested until the last page. I love how Samantha Chase creates magic within her books. This was a stunning magical journey that I want to revisit again. There was so many the,see to love about this story. Family, love, dreams, and finding oneself. This Is Our Song was perfect. I highly recommend it to all.

Review: Mary’s Prayer


Synopsis

Mary Beiler is not ready for change. She wants to hold onto the past as tightly as she can. But new roles and relationships test Mary’s boundaries as she learns that she must trust God’s plan for her life. 
Eli Glick used to be a school-yard crush, but she hasn’t let herself dream of a future with him. When their paths begin weaving together, she starts to wonder if the feeling she notices towards him might be more than the memories of her childhood. 

From Mary’s Prayer: 

Not so bad! How was that for a compliment! she thought angrily as she stood and stepped towards the ladder. She turned to move down it, but as she placed her boot on the first rung it slid sideways several inches, and she took her foot off. 
“Hang on, I’ll hold it,” he said. 

He stood and walked towards her, and knelt near the top of the ladder. He held it in place as she turned again and put her foot on the top rung. This time, with his help, it was perfectly solid. 

“See what happens when we work together?” he asked, and she felt a smile peek onto her lips despite her upset. 
How does he do that to me? she wondered. She’d just been feeling upset and sorry for herself, and now a crack of lightheartedness found it’s way into her heart. It was as if he was bringing out her smiles –smiles that had been buried such a long time that they almost felt strange on her lips.

As she climbed down, she once again found herself uncomfortably close to the handsome man. Eli grinned at her. He was looking right into her eyes, and this made her blush. She was glad, at least, that he was no longer staring at her scars. 
“You sure that we can spend this time together, and you won’t fall in love with me?”he asked in his deep voice. 

Mary knew he was teasing her, but she felt her heart skip a beat at the flirtatious sound in his voice. Oh don’t flatter yourself, she thought. He’s only teasing you, just like he acts with all the girls. Besides, he likes Abby Trovey. With his face so close, and his blonde hair and good looks only inches away from her, she swallowed hard. 

Will Eli Glick see past Mary’s scars and into her heart?

Will Mary learn to trust again? 

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Mary’s Prayer by Faye P. Baker is an Amish romance that will tug at readers’ hearts. I definitely felt a pull on mine. The story is both sad and sweet. Many obstacles to overcome like math and fear. Faye P. Baker has created the perfect atmosphere with just enough intrigue and and suspense to keep me reading all night long. I loved it. Mary is a young Amish woman moves to a new place. She lost her mom due to a fire. Mary has scars that make her feel self-conscious and the fact that her math isn’t well enough to work the cash register in her dad’s bakery…this puts her in a situation that makes her feel lost. Then, there’s good looking Eli who friends her. But she as she falls hard for him, she realizes that he likes another girl. Mary then feels completely lost and angry. Feels like God isn’t listening to her. Mary’s Prayer is a realistic telling of life and hardships that fall onto our paths and show us how we can move forward. Inspiring, well-written, and heart melting. I highly recommend this novel, to all.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

More for a Duke by Jessie Bennett is a dashing bold read. A Duke returns home to find all is not well with the family finances. A younger brother not knowing how to deal with the finances right, led to some some disorder and interruption into the elderly brother’s life. He returns back home, from war, and finds he must marry or else. This soon leads him to meeting a woman of his age who also, doesn’t like going to balls. But something transpires between them. Lady Elizabeth is fascinated with the Duke; however, her sister doesn’t want them together…and a particular man is also wanting the two new love birds separate. 

A man who can forget a woman he’s just met, a woman who is undecided about a man, and another man who can’t take a hint…plus, jealousy comes into play. Jessie Bennett has entertained me again with her latest novel, More for a Duke. The title goes in hand with the tale perfectly. Both Duke and Lady are indeed a perfect match…

More for a Duke is sweet, innocent, and swoon worthy. Readers will blush, laugh, and fall in love with this great new read. Jessie Bennett’s writing clear, precise, and flawless. I highly recommend it.

Previously published as LIVE A LITTLE, LOVE A LOT. This edition has been substantially updated.

Rating: 4.5 stars

Review:

Love Trip by Alexa Darin is the first of her novels that I have read. I loved the cover and was immediately drawn to what the story had to offer. Once, I read it, I fell in love. There’s a huge animal loving leading female character. She’s a tough lawyer but has a soft gooey side as well. Her life suddenly has been spiraling downward where her law cases and ex-boyfriend are concerned. Taylor heads to an island to visit her sister. Here, we find out that the younger sister has too had a bad relationship. But Taylor sees her sister as happy and maybe smitten with someone. Then, the novel heats up, with a sexy bull riding cowboy. Cole is every woman’s wet dream come true. The instant chemistry between Cole and Taylor makes for a sweet, hilarious, and romantic read. The point of view is mostly done by the main character, Taylor. It would be great, if readers got snippets from Cole’s point of view as well. Then, there’s the romantic interest that was hinted about Taylor’s sister…I would have liked to know a bit more about that and hopefully see a novel focusing on that couple. Overall, Love Trip was fantastic. A perfect contemporary romance for all. Take it to the beach or read it anywhere. The story lures readers into its depth and takes them on an exciting journey.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

The Holiday Gift by RaeAnne Thayne is a cozy heart melting tale. Two best friends who harbored a secret love for one another. Yet neither one wanted to destroy their friendship. The friendship works perfectly until both are single adults once more…

His chance came and went. Now, years afterwards, he’s divorced and she’s a widow. Both have a daughter from their marriages.

As the holiday comes around, can two best friends be bold enough to close the gap and let loose their real feelings? RaeAnne Thayne has once again created a beautifully story that winds itself into readers hearts and souls. It touched me deeply. Sad, frustrating, funny, and sweet. I enjoyed the emotional roller coaster ride and look forward to reading the next book by this talented writer. The Holiday Gift is truly a must read for all.

Review: Long Way Gone


Synopsis:

“No matter where you go, no matter whether you succeed or fail, stand or fall, no gone is too far gone. You can always come home.”

At the age of eighteen, musician and songwriter Cooper O’Connor took everything his father held dear and drove 1,200 miles from home to Nashville, his life riding on a six-string guitar and the bold wager that he had talent. But his wager soon proved foolish.

Five years after losing everything, he falls in love with Daley Cross, an angelic voice in need of a song. But just as he realizes his love for Daley, Cooper faces a tragedy that threatens his life as well as his career. With nowhere else to go, he returns home to the remote Colorado mountains, searching for answers about his father and his faith.

When Daley shows up on his street corner twenty years later, he wonders if it’s too late to tell her the truth about his past—and if he is ready to face it himself.

A radical retelling of the prodigal son story, Long Way Gone takes us from tent revivals to the Ryman Auditorium to the tender relationship between a broken man and the father who never stopped calling him home.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Long Way Gone by Charles Martin is truly a phenomenal story. I couldn’t believe the writer’s talent. I kept asking myself why or how I haven’t read any of his previous books until now…absolutely amazing. The tale instantly hooks readers into the plot. It was memorizing. The heart and soul can be felt with every page. At first the tale reminded me of the biblical tale about the older son leaving and then returning home. In a way this was similar to that. The main character, Cooper O’Conner is one that readers like myself will never forget. His journey was epic. Sad, realities, and heartfelt. It makes me want to reach out to the character. The past can only hold us back from our futures if we let it. That was the theme I strongly senesed inside here as well as one of redemption and love. Then there was also, hope. The ending was heart melting. I loved reading this latest novel by Charles Martin. He definitely knows how to wrap his words around and into readers’ hearts. Overall, I recommend this coming of age read to readers worldwide.

Rating: 5 stars

Review

My Lord Ghosts by Meredith Bond is a historical romance with a twist. I loved reading it. Meredith captured the time period perfectly. The characters were charming especially, Marcus. A ghost living in his own home. It’s not until a certain lady arrives that stirs everything out of balance. Marcus’s was attracted to her beauty upon first sight. His plan to get rid of her was in action, yet little did he know that she would be the toughest one to scare away…

Laia Grace is a flirt for a lady of her time. Childish almost in that manner. Yet somehow she grows up into a decent woman as the story unfolds. I was intrigued from the beginning. A young woman sent off by her father to a haunted place. But what occurs next kept me turning the pages. She turns into a completely different person and her curiosity gets the better of my attention. She seeks out the ghost unafraid. Wants to help. Maturity already rising gradually. Then the ghost’s way of haunting is hilarious. Marcus makes a mess of scaring people on purpose but despite that he’s a good ghost…

My Lord of Ghosts is well-written and highly engaging. I had to find out every detail and what happened next. My guessing built up from the suspense. The intrigue was great. Page turner. The personalities of both main characters melted together in a beautiful way. Each was destined for the other. A ghost so happens to help the young beautiful woman and she help him as well. Not planned but done. I couldn’t get enough of these characters. Realistic, believable, and enchanting. The ending was  perfect. Meredith Bond is another talented writer who books will be added to my reading pile in the future. I truly enjoyed reading this novel. Overall, I recommend to all. Sweet, romantic, and entertaining.

Synopsis:

Charlotte Darby’s ship is sinking. Penniless and alone, she is struggling to care for herself and her young sister in the harsh seaport town of Hull. But when a solicitor from London brings news that she is the heir to a vast estate in Kent, it seems her days of rough seas are over. Willowkeep is prosperous and grand, far too much for a shipping merchant’s daughter to manage, and she quickly comes to rely on the help of Henry Morland, the estate’s kind and handsome steward. Henry has worked hard his entire life, but all the money he’s saved won’t be enough to get his father out of debtor’s s prison. And Henry’s fondness for Charlotte and her sister is only another reminder of his low status and lack of wealth. Though he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep Charlotte happy and looked after as the county’s wealthiest lady, she can never be his.
Courted by a charming man of the ton, threatened by those who want her money, and determined to keep her sister safe from the same fate that cost her the rest of her family, Charlotte must face some heartrending decisions. For no matter the size of the fortune, life and love are never smooth sailing.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Willowkeep by Julie Daines is a romance novel set during the regency time period. This historical setting was perfect. The setting and mood were set just right. Readers won’t be able to put this book down…I was hooked. Instantly Julie Daines takes readers on a journey. One of an older sister taking care of a younger sibling. Both are higher up in society than the servant that serves them so well. It was different to see a servant actually want to take care of his superiors in the way Henry does here. He knows he’s not for Charlotte but can’t help feeling attracted to her. His actions are good. I really liked him as much as I did the sisters. The younger sibling has a learning disability that readers do not hear about much in these kind of novels. I was happy that Julie Daines portrayed this into her stunning tale. It was charming, realistic, and sweet. This was the first novel, I have read by this talented writer. I hope to read more by her in the future. Overall, Willowkeep is a must read for all who love romance and historical tales.

Playboy hotel owner Price Lyons has wanted to break down Kinni’s walls for years. Her plan to relax for a whole week is the perfect opportunity to get to the one person he’s never been able to charm. And this time, she seems…receptive to his advances. Unexpected, but he’ll take it.

There’s just one problem. Kinni’s allergic, to spontaneity, and the only thing predictable about Price is he’s unpredictable. There’s no way they’ll last beyond the week, and Kinni’s going to make sure of it…

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Random Acts of Marriage by Boone Brux is a contemporary romance novel that all will love. It takes readers on an emotional rollercoaster. Feelings such as sadness, indecision, and warmth will tug at readers’ hearts. The emotions felt raw and very much real. Internal struggles were powerful within this read. Readers will also meet families that are quirky and highly entertaining. Both families really cared about each other. That part was beautifully done. Boone Brux kept me in suspense throughout the novel. Love was the main theme and well played.  Addictive from the start, I couldn’t tear away from the book.  Instantly hooked. The leading female character has flaws that draw readers closer to her. Relationships in her past that didn’t go well…and so, she was determined to stay away from them. However, fate brought what she didn’t want in her life. Where it will go is something I highly recommend to readers to read. Fun is something the character doesn’t want but is trapped into by her best friend. From there the scenes get more interesting. Thus, enters Price. He meets Kinni and wants to do everything he can to keep her. But getting under her skin and staying there will be the hardest thing ever. I enjoyed reading this brilliant romance. It was sweet, funny, and well-developed. Overall, I recommend it to readers everywhere.

But the heat turns up higher with every page. The undeniable attraction will keep readers turning the pages. The sexy cowboy has just presented one woman a chance that she will have to risk.

Review: Cowboy Christmas Homecoming

 

Synopsis:

They’ve weathered a lot worse than winter. For widow June Harper, another cold front is about to hit. Most call him Hugh. She’d call him Scrooge, except as the man ensures her needs are met, June can’t help but wonder how to meet the needs of his heart.

Netty Lewis can take care of herself, has for a while now. Some hired help over the holidays doesn’t change that. And even if Roy does take care of her, that doesn’t mean he cares for her or that he’ll stay past Christmas.

Pastor Colton McCabe is having the opposite problem. He’s not sure he’ll make it through the holidays with his new housekeeper. Grace can’t seem to do anything right but love. Perhaps being a home keeper will earn her a permanent residence in his heart.

And no one longs for a home more than Connie Lancaster. She’s determined to return to St. Louis, and no cowboy can change her mind. But if Isaac can change her heart, maybe Connie will see the homecoming she’s been waiting for isn’t to a place but a person.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

No Holds Barred by Samantha Long is a super good romance. The plot had me so captivated I couldn’t stop reading it. The plot centered around themes of lost love, secrets, and friends becoming lovers. Trust, friendship, and love are also found inside this novel. A woman recently divorced and betrayed by her husband is finding herself attracted to her male friend. The story gets more interesting when readers learn that this male friend has always loved  Halle. Except Halle wasn’t available to love as his. But now, that she’s free, Luke is willing to risk all to be with her. However, Halle isn’t ready to trust yet. Besides she’s not even sure where her feelings lie with Luke just yet. Then there’s some stuff that’s hidden that will make this read more intriguing. Luke’s past. He and Halle will have to get through it if their love is to survive…

Baring one’s self to another after being hurt badly never helps. The new situation at hand is complex. As the pages turn it gets hotter, sweeter, and more complicated. Friends will risk their friendship for something they feel is worth fighting for…Samantha Long is a talented writer. She can persuade readers everywhere to fall into her fictional word of adventure, love, and fate. Overall, I highly recommend No Holds Barred to readers everywhere.

Review: Mortal Musings


Synopsis:

Muse Alexandra has had it with the arrogant, ungrateful humans she is obligated to inspire. When the internal ranting of her latest charge pushes her past reason, she disregards the rules and forces her own words through his fingers, and is instantly entrapped in mortal form. With no magic, no identity, and no resources, Allie has no alternative but to navigate the mortal realm, depending entirely on her reluctant host while discerning what exactly caused her transformation–and how to reverse it.

Brett doesn’t have a chance to consider the words that mysteriously showed up on his screen; he’s too distracted by the stunning woman who appeared in his office out of nowhere. Before his brain can catch up, Brett’s uninvited guest becomes enmeshed in his everyday life. Her artless innocence gradually lessens his suspicions. Most importantly, the writer’s block that’s been plaguing him dissolves under the fantasies the naively beguiling Alexandra inspires.

All too soon, the forced proximity sparks a confounding awareness neither writer nor muse are able to resist.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Mortal Musings by Ari Glazki is amazing. A paranormal love story that will leave readers satisfied in every way. A man who needs inspiration to help his writer’s block is doomed. He obviously wasn’t succeeding with his muse’s help. Before Alexandra knew it she was in mortal form before the male writer. Just seeing her, she inspired so many ideas as well as fantasies. The writer, Brett, soon earns attention for his writing but then Allie aka Alexandra disappears. 

Ari Glazki’s novel is stunning. The characters are dreamy and realistic. They’re instant bond of chemistry builds and unbearable heat. The suspense of what will occur between the writer and his muse is great. The action and dialogue moves the plot forward. Fast and easy to read in one sitting. I loved following the characters as they came to terms with their feelings. I still wasn’t sure how the ending would be until I arrived there. Romantic, sweet, and addictive. Ari Glazki’s writing is superb. Well-written and well-developed. I highly recommend Mortal Musings to all.

Review:

A Perfect Plan by Alyssa Drake is an intoxicating read. The words fill one’s mind and send the heart racing. The raw desires brings out a chemistry so strong I could hardly believe I was simply reading about them. But intimacy isn’t the only exciting part of this novel. Alyssa Drake has also, masterfully woven a suspenseful yet deadly mystery into her historical romance. I have never felt so pumped about reading a historical tale than I have when reading this book. The pages come to life. Showing readers as they follow along. The chemistry builds with every page. Creating an intense atmosphere. The danger ahead is oe that will keep readers on the edge of their seats in wait.

Alyssa Drake creates a story of a young woman who only had her brother. When info comes in saying his boat has sunk she is soon called back into society to play a part. Samantha was just getting used to not having a man around to boss her around nor have to be anything society asked until recently. The plot thickens when news that her father had been murdered. Benjamin a friend of Samantha’s brother made a promise to take care of Sammantha if anything foul happened. So, when fate calls him to fulfill the promise made he at first hates his new duty but after meeting Sammantha he soon falls fast. But the danger isn’t over yet. Sammantha might also be in danger as well…and Benjamin’s plans for seducing her will have to wait. Overall, I loved reading this brilliant novel. I loved the characters and their troubles. Well-written and entertaining. I highly recommend A Perfect Plan to readers everywhere.

Review:

Nicole Strycharz is indeed a talented writer. I can’t see her not writing a book that readers will fall over in love with or beg for more. The writing style is superb. Easy to read and follow along. There’s always an emotional journey that Nicole Strycharz creates in every one of her brilliant novels. I fall in love every single time. I can’t help myself. The emotions tugging at my heart over the characters’ frustrations, struggles, and undeniable love. Anyone you reads this stunning lady’s work and not feel any kind of emotion or connection is lacking life’s good gifts. Laughter, tears, and kisses. Yes, all that and more can be found in this particular read. 

Nollaig Shona Duit; A Christmas Tale by Nicole Strycharz is everything readers will want plus, so much more. I can’t find a single thing wrong with this incredible story. Two irresistible characters, check. A fast moving plot, check. An engaging tale that captures readers hearts and souls, double check. A sexy and sweet romance, absolutely. A novella about finding love, happiness, and new beginnings, definitely inside this book. The main character, Shea is a man to love passionately and to never let go. I want him. That there proves Nicole’s talent. I need to read more about her famous characters. I want to hear and see more. She delivers a promising read that satisfies every readers’ desire. A feel good romance perfect for any day especially, during the holidays. Perfect, sizzling, clean, an well-written. The characters were well-developed. The struggles were believable and kept me turning the pages. I truly love this writer’s work. Overall, I highly recommend this latest novella to all. (P.s. This along with all her other works need to be turned into big screen movies! Just saying…)

Mega ouch…but Avery won’t stand to be around a man who doesn’t love her. A friend calls her to Rome. There she has a life she’s missed out on in nine years.

Avery isn’t sure herself. But once she’s spending more time with the man of her heart, how can she leave? Roman Crazy is a feel-good romance with travel, food, and family too. Finding love and happiness that just a bonus. However, both Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci, have left the fate of Avery and her lover to themselves. Will they work out or fall apart once again? I highly suggest readers dig in and read. I loved this journey and following the characters. Charming, sweet, and truly a page turner. Overall, I recommend Roman Crazy to readers worldwide.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

To Have and To Hold: Three Autumn Love Stories is a heartwarming collection that all will love. Three talented writers put together a book that holds a story that will knock readers off their feet and drag them to the altar.

The first story, Love Takes the Cake: A September Wedding Story, is superb. Here readers, get a good clean romance as well as a good dash of humor. A woman who happens to be a single mother and talented baker falls for her customer. Not just any customer but a hottie. He comes into her bakery like clockwork each day. Orders the same cookies every time. Her heart goes into overdrive. Wondering if the man is single or taken. Then fate has a way of interrupting her quiet lifestyle and shakes things up for the baker. The same man she’s falling for happens to be the one to bring a crazy bride to the bake shop. The woman is someone the baker would love nothing more than to kick out of her shop until the bride is convinced to let the baker not only do her wedding cake but the bachelorette party as well as the reception party. This means money and Charlotte would be nuts to let one silly bride get to her. But then that means more quality time with the mysterious man she’s crushing for…plus, there’s the question…is he too good to be true. Overall, I highly recommend this sticky sweet yet hilarious romance read to all.

Next, is The Perfect Arrangement: An October Wedding Story. This story was written in a unique yet casual way. I felt like the characters were real rather than just words stretching across the pages. Here, I go to meet interesting individuals with a common interest. Who would have guessed that a man can love classic romantic movies? I surely didn’t yet the writer, Katie Ganshert, made it appear manly and perfectly normal. I loved the atmosphere in which she created. I couldn’t help to feel the fear and worry creeping up on the florist and the smooth calmness from the stranger who’s car she happened to bump into…at least she gave him her email. Since that day, he has emailed her back and her replying back to every one of his emails. Great, advice he seems to give. Then fate brings up another issue and the suspense is back. Readers will find this story sweet, highly engaging, and funny. Overall, I highly recommend this romance to readers everywhere.

Last but not least, is Love in the Details: A November Wedding. This is the last of the three amazing romantic tales inside this book. I could not stop reading it. Becky Wade has a talent of luring her readers into the story. Imagine loving someone for the longest time…then in finding a wedding coordinator for a friend, that person finds his love again. Only he doesn’t know that she let him go due to her wanting not to drag him down. His success meant she had to let him go…but what if there’s a chance that love is in the air for these two past lovers? Two characters both living entirely different lifestyles. This may be the break it or make it moments for their ultimate test in love, or not. Marriage is for forever and that is a serious game that requires everything one has to win it.  Intriguing, entertaining, and a must-read for all. I loved reading this and recommend it to everyone.

Overall, To Have and to Hold: Three Autumn Love Stories is the best clean and romantic series I have read. Highly recommend it to all.

Review: Unlucky in Love

 

Synopsis:

After Alexis Maguire’s wedding day comes and goes without a groom, she decides that it’s time for a change. Tired of being the dependable, steady—and apparently boring—one, Alexis hopes that a cross-country road trip will help her loosen up and find her inner sparkle. Her first stop is the Whisper Creek Ranch, where the hot wranglers are sure to bring out her inner party girl. The trouble is, she can’t stand pretending to be someone she’s not—especially around the cowboy who tempts her to stay put.

Gunnar Peterson has spent six months working at Whisper Creek, and he’s never been happier.

Review:

Unlucky in Love by Maggie McGinnis is the best romance. I love the characters, the scenes and all. Maggie McGinnis has a way of showing a story to readers and leaving them in the story even after they have reached the last page. The emotions were real. The tension from both of the main characters was like a playing a tug of war with themselves and not winning. A sexy hot cowboy, who has had it rough in growing up…doesn’t want to be anything like his father. He keeps trying not to fall for the red headed beauty that walked into his life. But something keeps tugging him right back to her. Like an undeniable attraction of a magnet. Then, there’s the good girl nurse. She does everything to help her mother who can be a lot to handle at times. Her younger sister ends of leaving the majority of responsibility onto her shoulders. However, her sister is also, a good friend when it comes to her bad ex. Being left two weeks before one’s wedding is a raw enough scar…but only time will tell if both the cowboy and nurse can have a happily ever after or forever e cursed.  Unlucky in Love is a new must read for all. I can’t think of one reason why readers wouldn’t love this contemporary sweet yet sexy romance. One that takes place in the West. Did I mention hot cowboys with a heart of gold? Overall, I highly recommend this novel to all.

 

Review: Hit the Road, Jake!

Hit The Road, Jake! (The Lindsey Lark Series Book 3) by [Rohman, Cricket]

 

Synopsis:

Thrilling, romantic, and sprinkled with humor, HIT THE ROAD, JAKE! reinvents the ‘buddy movie’ concept with the written word … and a pretty woman. Jake and Lindsey are good at tracking down offenders responsible for petty theft and blackmail, but when new mysteries become personal—slashed tires, spattered blood, steamy love letters, a stolen pet—everything changes.

Who is this enemy that secretly harasses them from town to town? Jake calls in some favors and manages to finagle the DNA testing of several blood samples. The results are shocking, and the dangers they face become deadly.

Practically, newlyweds, the couple thought they’d created the perfect win-win plan. While traveling between Tucson and Estes Park in their RV, Jake would solve embarrassing mysteries that schools wished to keep under wraps, and Lindsey, being the ‘cover’ for their presence, would conduct workshops for teachers. Then all hell broke loose.

Rating: 4 stars

Review:

Hit the Road, Jake! by Cricket Rohman is a great cozy mystery that soon gets deadly. The beginning introduces readers a wonderful yet newly wedded couple. Jake and Lindsey and their dogs. This couple is deeply in love with one another and their bantering will keep any reader grinning. It was hard not to laugh along. Then, as they dive into their first mystery case it seems things get peculiar fast. Threats that look like a harmless prank is more than beats the eye. The couple will soon discover fast just how dangerous their mystery case is.

Cricket Rohman’s novel reminded me much of the Miss Fisher Mysteries. Funny, dangerous, and a puzzle not only to the detectives on the case but also to the readers at hand. I was intrigued at the mystery. A rhyming poem, literature, and petty stuff…what was the real MO and who was behind it and the more puzzling question was why. This novel will keep readers guessing and entertained from beginning to end. Hit the Road, Jake! is an excellent mystery full of suspense, intrigue and a great set of characters.

Hit the Road, Jake! by Cricket Rohman is indeed the perfect read. An unforgettable journey with the world’s best couple. Both Lindsey and Jake are a perfect match. Their investigating soon leads them into more than just trouble with their clients. It comes straight to them as well. The humor and romance that fill the pages as well made it believable. I recommend this novel to all. I look forward to reading the other novels by this talented writer.

Review:

The Earl’s Unforgettable Flame by Charlotte Stone is an exciting read. Adventure, danger, an unforgotten past, and a deep emotional journey. A young boy now, as an Earl, can’t forget the good deed a young girl did. She risked her life. Now, as a woman, Catherine has the scars that make her feel like an outcast. She feels like she is not worthy of any suitor’s attention nor love. But then fate sends Benjamin into her life. He wants her. Catherine doesn’t think he could and the lack of self-esteem she has causes Benjamin to try. He wants her to know he can and does want her. But will her attitude keep them both from finding their true happiness?

Charlotte Stone’s writing is superb. She sucked me right into the plot. Tempting, bold, and thrilling. The Earl’s Unforgettable Flame is indeed a perfect title for this read. The main characters lure me deep into their backgrounds and their present moments. I loved following them both. Each with fighting for a good cause. If I were in the main female character’s shoes I too would be hesitant if an Earl like Benjamin took interest in me. Catherine considers herself a damaged good. Living with ugly scars can take a lot from an individual. The banter between both characters is enticing. I kept turning the pages in a haste to read it all.  Benjamin is a good gentleman with good intentions; however, a man can only try so hard. The game of love is unpredictable but worth every struggle. Overall, I highly recommend The Earl’s Unforgettable Flame to all.

Review: She’s Got a Way

 

Synopsis:

Gabriela O’Brien is devoted to the girls at Briarwood Academy—even when their bad behavior earns them an entire summer at a remote campground in Echo Lake, Vermont. When the headmaster assigns Gabi to be their chaperone, how can she refuse? A long, hot summer with neither indoor plumbing nor wireless access might be just what she needs to get her own life in order…right?

Before Briarwood took over Camp Echo, Luke Magellan spent years there helping troubled boys. When four spoiled rich girls and their seemingly uptight den mother show up for the summer, it’s hard to hide his amusement as he watches them tackle the great outdoors. But it’s even tougher to resist the passion he sees in Gabi—especially when he learns about her past, and sees how much she cares about her students. Is this destined to be just a grown-up version of a summer-camp romance—or can they find enough in common to build a love for all seasons?

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

She’s Got A Way by Maggie McGinnis is an exciting adventure. One that takes readers outdoors to a faraway camp. Welcome to Camp Echo. A beautiful lake and scenery all around it…but there are only two buildings on the site. A place for eating and the administrative building. That’s where the plot gets more exciting…add a group of five teenage girls and their home mother and all hell breaks loose. The girls are taken to Camp Echo which now operates under the rule by their snobbish all girls school. The girls past actions have caused them to be sent to the camp. A way for them to suffer for the trouble they all have caused. The home mother had already made plans to go away for the summer yet the snobbish boss forced her to go with the girls. Now, all five have to learn how to survive the outdoors or drive each other bear crazy. Speaking of bears…readers are in for a sweet surprise.

Maggie McGinnis is a talented writer. Her world of fiction excites, intrigues, and creates emotional attachments to the characters. I really loved how each character is realistically flawed and learns how to let go and move forward despite their situations. The teenage girls learn more at Camp Echo then they will in their rich all girls school. Maybe friendships can be made. Then there’s a possibility of love in the air. Home mother and the handyman at Camp Echo have it bad. It’s hard to put the book down. The characters had me laughing, crying, and falling in love with them. This was definitely a feel-good contemporary romance. Love, life, and new beginnings. She’s Got A Way is a must read for all. Overall, I highly recommend this novel.

 

Review: Stealing Taffy

 

Synopsis:

Ten weeks in a swanky Arizona rehab center and Tanyalee Newberry, aka Taffy, is ready to give up everything that isn’t good for her—her forgery habit, taking (i.e., stealing) things that don’t belong to her, and, of course, men. But when her flight home gets rerouted, she finds herself in a hotel room with her smoking-hot travel companion. One night together is all it should have been. But passion is oh-so sweet…

Special Agent Dante Cabrera has been duped at his own love-’em-and-leave-’em game by this so-called Taffy. To forget she ever existed, Dante buries himself in his work…until a case leads him to North Carolina and, impossibly, right back to her.

But Dante also knows there’s more to her than great looks and hot nights—a soul-searching woman who wants amend her past sins. Is he ready to take their desire to the next level…and steal Taffy’s heart?

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Stealing Taffy by Susan Donovan is a fabulous adventure for all readers to lose themselves within…imagine going to the airport and seeing the most attractive man around…one that leaves you staring and staring at him forever until he meets your gaze and suddenly you’re caught. Fate is a funny thing. After coming out of the women’s bathroom almost late for the plane ride…Taffy is seated next to the hot man she was caught checking out moments before the plane ride. The federal agent thought he would be stuck next to a fat sweaty man and instead he was sitting next to a gorgeous woman. Her hair was a reddish color and she was wearing some shade of pink. Once she sits down she talks nonstop. But Dante doesn’t care. He thinks she’s stupid because she asked where Brooklyn was located and he found out that she might be super crazy. Got shoplifting, writing checks, and a lot of other issues. Taffy thinks Dante is super hot and she would love nothing more than to bed him. However, she’s trying to stay away from all men and make up for her life’s mistakes. But then the weather had to bed and they both end up doing what they shouldn’t.

Stealing Taffy is hilarious, sexy, and sweet. There is never a boring moment with Taffy around. She has a lot of mistakes to apologize for and the one she isn’t looking forward to is her sister. Both lost their parents and have since then made life hell for each other. However, Taffy made life worse for her sister, grandpa and a bunch of others. Including a jealous ex who is worse than originally mentioned. The heated chemistry between the federal agent and a woman with a felony is undeniably out of this world. Neither one can get the other out of their thoughts. Taffy is well-mannered, southern belle, and pretty. She can be mega tough and super sweet. I enjoyed following Taffy’s adventures and Dante’ step towards accepting his feelings for Taffy. Overall, I highly recommend this romance to all.
