I love a good reunion romance and Unforgettable is a wonderful one. Shannon Richard’s fourth Country Roads novel will make you smile one moment and break your heart the next. It’s an engrossing romance thanks to its interesting leads and their fantastic chemistry.
Hannah and Shep first fell in love as teenagers, but when they chose to end their summer romance and follow their planned life paths, their lives changed irrevocably. It’s been thirteen years, but neither Hannah nor Shep have forgotten each other or the heartbreak their separation caused. Now that Hannah is back in Mirabelle, Shep can’t bear to lose her again. But things aren’t exactly easy. It takes patience and trust on Shep’s part and a willingness to risk her heart once again on Hannah’s for these two to get together. And when they do…watch out because Unforgettable heats up fast. Shep and Hannah are truly made for each other in every way and their every encounter crackles with energy. The obstacles in their romance are mostly due to a lack of communication and the occasional misunderstanding. Though I wanted to shake them and tell them to just open up to one another a couple of times over the course of the story, Ms. Richard did make me understand where both Shep and Hannah were coming from. Hannah in particular had to deal with a powerful loss; she bears an emotional scar that will never truly heal and it affects her present-day relationship with Shep. There’s a wealth of emotion in Unforgettable that keeps you invested in the story. I hated having to put the book down and I was rooting for Hannah and Shep every step of the way.
Unforgettable is the fourth book in Ms. Richard’s Country Roads series, but having only read one other book in the series I think it’s safe to say this story can be read as a standalone. There are some minor spoilers from Undone, Undeniable, and Unstoppable, so if you absolutely hate spoilers start from the beginning. Also brought over from the previous books are some delightful former heroes and heroines. Shep’s group of friends are funny and charming and they add tons of warmth to Unforgettable. All in all I adored Hannah and Shep’s romance and I cannot wait to read the rest of the Country Roads series!

One Night of Trouble is a scorchingly hot read by Elle Kennedy, a true master of erotic romance. Brett and AJ’s story is decadently erotic and utterly engrossing – barring singed fingers you won’t want to put this book down ;)
Since the beginning of the After Hours series I’ve been looking forward to delving into AJ’s character. On the surface he seems so perfect that you just have to know what’s going on beneath the golden boy façade. Make no mistake, AJ is a nice guy with a big heart who’ll make you swoon, but he’s also more than the mask he wears. He’s not perfect at all, which of course makes him the perfect hero. AJ’s got an edge he hides, plus he’s sexy-as-sin, deliciously dominant, and dirty to boot. It’s a struggle for him to simply be himself and I loved watching him come into his own over the course of the story. Brett is the catalyst for his change. The talented tattoo-artist is also more than others see her to be. She’s screwed up in the past and she knows it, but she works to be a more responsible person. You have to respect her intelligence and determination and you have to adore her because she’s a straight-shooting, likeable heroine. She and AJ bring out the best in one another, and their romance is unexpectedly sweet. Brett and AJ are also unbelievably hot as a couple – melt the page/screen hot. The sexual tension and erotic scenes in One Night of Trouble are beyond sexy, so much so that you may need a fan even in the dead of winter.
One Night of Trouble is the third book in Ms. Kennedy’s After Hours series but it can easily be read as a standalone. Gage and Skyler (from One Night of Sin) and Reed and Darcy (from One Night of Scandal) do play small supporting roles, and I loved what these four brought to the story (though I won’t spoil what that is). Though One Night of Trouble is the final book in the After Hours trilogy, Ms. Kennedy does introduce Brett’s brothers, a trio of intriguing men I hope get stories of their own one day.
AJ and Brett are two strong, wonderful characters with generous hearts and sex appeal to spare. I loved reading their story and I cannot wait to revisit them when I re-read the fabulous After Hours series.
