Blurb:

After a devastating accident crushed my dreams, I ended up back in my hometown teaching kindergarten. I was trying to make the best of it. That is, until the world I had to leave behind, showed up in my classroom in the form of a five-year-old little girl. Her father living the exact life I almost had.

Adam Jacobson is known as the bad boy of rock. While he and his band tour the world, they leave a trail of mayhem. What no one knows is behind the music is a caring, straightedge man with a secret — a daughter who the world is about to discover.

When they move to my small town, their secret is blown. He needs my help to keep her out of the media, and with each exchange we grow closer. Only problem is I need to stay away from the memories he ignites, and the temptations he brings my way.

Secrets I’ve kept and thoughts of that fatal night come crashing back into my life. I have to wonder if it was more than fate that brought his little girl into my classroom.

My Review…

If you are looking for a sweet, steamy and sassy romance, look no further than Our Song by Lauren Runow.

This story of Sarah and Adam is full of heart.

Sarah was trying to fulfill her dreams of making music.  She knew her straight laced family would not approve.  A horrible turn of events finds her back in her home town, hiding and covering up who she really is.

Enter Adam, a true testament of the saying don’t judge a book by its cover.  He is a dedicated father and a true rock-n-roll legend.  When his daughter falls in love with her new kindergarten teacher, well he is soon to follow!

I admired the song references in this story, I also admired the dichotomy between God and rock and roll that Ms. Runow described and how she was able to show that you could have both.  Sarah and Adam could have it all and be happy!

The flow of this story is fast, but it’s perfect in its hope! I also loved reading the transformation of Sarah, her strength and her determination to protect those she held close to heart was laudable!

I have yet to read a story from Ms. Runow that I haven’t fallen in love with! Our Song is no exception!

 

 

Happy Release Day & Review!!! If It’s Only Love by Lexi Ryan

See My Review Below!!!

 

It’s time for Shay’s story. Find out what secrets she’s been keeping from her family in this final book in The Boys of Jackson Harbor series.

If It’s Only Love, a sexy new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan is LIVE!

if it's only_amazon.jpg

Meet single dad Easton Connor as he leaves the NFL and returns to Jackson Harbor to fight for another chance with the love of his life.

***

I don’t regret much.

Not my decision to enter the NFL draft before finishing college.

Not fighting custody of my daughter—even if, biologically speaking, it turns out she’s not mine.

And certainly not seducing my buddy’s little sister ten years ago.

But when it comes to Shayleigh Jackson, my no-regrets attitude stops there. I screwed up royally where she’s concerned. Then I made another mistake when I let her shut me out of her life.

Now after more than a decade living in different time zones, I’m coming home to Jackson Harbor. My first priority is getting my daughter away from the media circus in LA, but the moment I see Shay, I know I’ll stop at nothing to win her back.

So what if she won’t speak to me? So what if she’s changed? So what if she’s fallen for some douchebag professor? I’ve never gotten over her and I know she feels the same about me. I’ve let her go twice. I won’t make that mistake again.

My Review…

Jackson Harbor Series…

Oooohhhh what a story!! I was waiting for Shay’s story! The only sister in the Jackson clan and she was quite the enigma in the previous books!

The flow of this story is spectacular, the way the story flashes back to the past between Easton and Shayleigh is smooth and easy to follow.  It brings more to their story and what a rollercoaster it is.

Easton and Shayleigh have a rough relationship.  Time and distance, circumstances beyond their control forces them to separate.  But beyond space and time the love between these two is epic.

Shayleigh, oh this girl…I wanted to hug her hard.  I wanted to be her best friend.  She has some severe insecurities and that unfortunately rules how she moves forward in the future. She is so hard headed and I wanted to shake her too!

Easton, this fella well I was swooning hard over.  He tries to do the right thing but at what cost?  He is admirable and yes he has made some mistakes but he tries to own up to them and move forward.

Ms. Ryan has created a world and a cast of characters that are so believable and honest!  Jackson Harbor is a town I would love to live in! And the Jackson family? Well I want to be an honorary member!

Get you hands on this angsty, twisty love story! You won’t be sorry!

Fireflies only stay for the summer.
He had outgrown our small town.

Excerpt

In the beginning, there were fireflies, crisp floating dots wading through the summer breeze.

There were children in the streets and popsicles being passed out by a local grandmother. There were skinned knees, too much sunscreen, and the wafting scent of freshly cut grass. There were long days and even longer nights.

Summers in Knox Ridge were just as much about mosquito nets and cicada songs as they were about lemonade and sunshine.

Knox Ridge wasn’t the biggest town in Georgia, but there were too many of us to learn each other’s names by heart. Most people grew up on the same street their parents did all those years ago.

They grew from a twinkle in their parents’ eyes into people who would one day take their places in the layout of our town. Their legacies casted shadows on every succeeding generation—what they’d do, where they lived, and who they loved. The town had a blueprint most didn’t question, but also didn’t consider too much.

Being a part of Knox Ridge was a privilege,” my Nana used to say.

It was a privilege to live around people who truly care for you and an honor to have a place like Knox Ridge to come home to.
“Every town on Earth says they’re the best,” Nana always said. “But how many towns can say ‘if you’re with us, we’ll accept every part of you?’”

Only Knox Ridge.
She swore that no one truly left Knox Ridge once they’d gotten a taste of living here, but some took breaks. She was right, some people drifted in and out of our sleepy town, but they always came back home. Even if they hadn’t realized they’d left.

I met Oliver Tanner one blistering afternoon in July.

He was five years old, moving back into the childhood home of his recently deceased father. I was four, sitting next door on my front porch with my best friend, Paige, munching on watermelon as we did nearly every afternoon.

Paige’s father had been my father’s best friend since childhood. Like I said, there was a blueprint to this town. Even Oliver with his ripped cargo shorts and dinosaur toys clenched tightly to his little chest. I had never seen anyone in that house. Not until they arrived.

“I never thought I’d live to see another Tanner live in that house,” my grandmother said.

I wouldn’t learn until years later the tumultuous history of the Tanner family in town. Once one of the most respected families of Knox Ridge, Oliver’s grandfather had left them disgraced and destitute three decades earlier when he ran off to California with a woman he barely knew. The Tanners had been on a downward spiral ever since.

“Well come on, sweeties,” my grandmother nudged Paige and myself. “Let’s go say hello. See if they need anything. That girl doesn’t look a day over twenty.”

Nana had been more or less right. Josey Tanner was twenty-five, freshly widowed, and out of money from living out west. Her only option was moving to this house she’d inherited from her husband’s passing and spread out his meager life insurance for as long as she could.

Nana introduced us to Oliver and his mother. Josey likewise introduced him to us.

“You got movers to help you with that truck?” Nana asked.

“No,” Josey said.

“Are you renting it by the hour or the day?”

“Day,” she answered. “I’ve got it rented for the whole week.”

Nana nodded before waving them both over. “No use doing anything now, then. Come over for some lemonade. My sons get off work at about five. They’ll wrangle up some friends to do it for you.”
That day was one of my first memories of Nana being Nana, pulling people together for the common good as she always did.

“Now you two be nice to the Tanner boy,” Nana told Paige and me. “He looks like he could use a bit of TLC.”

That day was also the day Ollie was entrusted to my keep. He was a year older than me, but back in those days, he was as large and loud as a church mouse. His sandy blonde hair stuck up in ways that defied gravity and he mostly muttered as we asked him about his dinosaurs.

We dragged him out back where all the magic happened, spending hours in the sun as the clouds and world passed us by. Our parents filtered in and out to keep an eye on us.

When the sun started to go down, and the fireflies started to peek out from their slumber, it was like his whole face lit up. I think that was the first time I knew I never wanted to stop looking at that smile.

Blurb:
The first time I saw Alessandro, two things came to mind.
Sexy and naked.
You get the idea.

Thanks to him, my flight from hell became the best one I’d ever been on.
Turned out, the engaging, gorgeous passenger, was my new professor…and the ultimate jerk.

Rude, prick, cocksucker, were a few choice names I’d love to call him.
How was this offensive man the same human I’d met on the plane?

His soul must’ve been invaded by demons after leaving the airport.
To think I’d almost joined the mile high club with him. Almost.
Everywhere I went he was there raining more insults on me.

Until I saw him with his adorable mini look-alike.
That charming little boy melted my heart.
Before I knew it, I’d accepted his son’s invitation to play soccer.

What the hell was I thinking?
I hated that man.

But naked and sexy had gotten me into this mess.
And not even hate could get me out.

My Review…

A West Sisters Novel

Now don’t let the above scare ya, it is a part of a series spin off but can be totally read as a stand alone.  That being said, here is my review….

After the tease at the end of One Indecent Night, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Piper’s story.  Her chance meeting with a stranger on an international flight and wowza what chemistry.

This is a fast paced novel.  There is no sugar coating or slow burn here.  Ms. Hargrove goes straight to the meat in the story.  And boy there is heat and chemistry between Piper and Alessandro!

Oh Alessandro!! What a swoon worthy Italian hero.  His back story is so heartbreaking, I got a bit misty.  But then I wanted to shake him for his attitude towards Piper when they meet again.  Grrrrr….but that makes the story even better, the angst and fiery dialogue between Piper and Alessandro burns up the pages!

Piper is quite the heroine.  She goes through so much in this story!! Being so far away from the family that she loves and the struggles she goes through.  I admired the way she was able to come through the other side of all that she went through with strength and determination.

The secondary characters are fantastic and seeing past characters surely doesn’t distract from the main story but bring more to it!

You are going to love the heart, heat and family-ness that shines in this story!! Well done Ms. Hargrove and I can’t wait to read Reynolds story next!!

My Review…

Wow, just wow….if you are looking for a angsty, emotional and heartfelt story, look no further that Rainstorm by Susana Mohel. This story is truly a Rainstorm of epic proportions!

Rainstorm is not a hearts and flowers romance.  This book doesn’t start happy.  This story grabbed me from the get go and didn’t let go even after I finished.  It took me almost a whole day later to come up with the words to review this properly without writing a book of my own! This book is going to give you ALL the feels!

Ms. Mohel is gonna take your heart and put it in the proverbial blender, set on frappe!  Then she is put your heart back together, stronger and more hopeful and full of feels! I felt anger and loss, I felt heartbreak and I actually cried.  I felt hope, lightness and the swoons!! Oh the swoons!

I loved how Ms. Mohel used a metaphoric rainstorm to describe the chemistry and relationship between Chase and Roselynn .  Both beautiful and destructive.  Both life-giving and life-taking.

The mystery and intrigue, the hope and the sorrow you are going to get everything in this story!! In fact this is defiantly in the running for my “Best Reads of 2019!”

If you haven’t read anything from this author before, do yourself a favor…GET THIS BOOK! You will not be sorry!

Blurb:
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the dark to my sister’s light—the awkward loner to her social butterfly. Growing up, she had it all: our parent’s unyielding approval, perfect grades, a permanent spot at the popular table, and the attention of the hottest guy ever—Duke Kincaid.

After eighteen years of living in her shadow, I couldn’t wait to escape—to finally be my own person. Yet here I am, I’m back in my hometown, once again in Valorie’s shadow. Only now, it’s eternal.

I had life all planned out: join the force, marry Valorie Parsons, and start a family of our own. I have the job, but the girl and all my dreams died before my very eyes.

Finally ready to move on, I agree to a blind date. Imagine my shock when I arrive and find, Valorie’s twin sister, waiting across the table from me. Mallory should be a reminder of all that I’ve lost, but instead she feels like my redemption . . . like maybe life’s giving me a second chance.

But, how can I be enough for her when I’ve already given her sister the best of me?

 

 

Excerpt:
Nate follows my line of sight and smirks. He may be my best friend and partner, but damn if I don’t want to knock that smarmy-ass look right off his face. And when he opens his mouth, the feeling intensifies. “It’s okay to—”

I shoot him a withering glare before stomping off toward Mallory.

I don’t stop until I’m close enough to feel the heat of her body. She has to tilt her head back to see me, and when our eyes meet, my name topples from her lips on a breathy sigh. “We need to talk.” My tone is all business—my cop voice, as Nate calls it—as I wrap my fingers around her forearm, prepared to drag her along behind me if necessary. Luckily, she comes all too willingly—so why am I still holding on to her?

The feeling of her soft, sun-warmed skin beneath my palm sends little zaps of electricity under my skin, into my muscle. Her nearness has me strung taut like a drawn bow. Here’s to hoping like hell I don’t snap.

Deep down, like really fucking deep, I know I’m acting like a colossal asshole, but much like a prepubescent boy picking on his schoolyard crush, it’s the only way I know how to deal with all of the conflicting feelings she stirs in me.

My Review…

Whew…this story hit me in the feels hard…I am a bit of an emotional wreck right now.

This is the story of Mallory and Duke.  This is also the story of Valorie and Duke….trust me on this….

Duke is living his dream life with Valorie. High school sweethearts and more.  Then then unthinkable happens….and Duke is mourning hard.

Mallory’s whole life has been nothing but heartache and cruelty.  She is the unwanted one…this scars her for a long time. I admired Mallory’s strength moving forward and creating a future for herself.  She was still vulnerable and trust was something that is a fragile thing with her.

When Mallory and Duke finally see each other after time has passed they are both slammed into the past and have to find their way to the future.

I felt the guilt from both Duke and Mallory, I felt the hurt and vulnerability from both of them.  I also felt the love and hope that they had and the chemistry between the two of them is just wowza.

This was a story that I couldn’t put down until the very end.  It’s steamy, it’s heartfelt and oh so swoony! Get your hands on this!
