This was beautiful. I cried quite a bit with this tearjerker. The emotions for Kori are so raw and I liked that she had everyday problems she struggled with. Reed was amazing, he laid it out there and when Kori called him on it, he did everything to prove he was worth her trust again. Excellent read....more

When he resurfaces and lets Rose know he is coming for her, she jumps on the opportunity to be Mack's home care nurse. However she didn't expect to fall in love with Mack nor did she think he wouldn't let her go.
Page turning biker fun. I liked that it kept me guessing until the end. Wasn't sure what Roses past was or if she could get past her feelings of MC's. Liked Mack, he is commanding but with Rose in private he is gruff but you love him for it. Another great read by Shelly Morgan....more

This has several twists and turns I did not see coming. My favorite so far in the series. I loved Hatch, h has a whole grizzly side to him that I loved. Maisie is adorable, she is in some ways a sheltered woman and yet she has the ability to stand up to Hatch. Excellent can't put down book....more

Duke knows he just met his future wife, however Miranda is not as easily charmed by his ways. Throw in a protective father who wants him to say away and someone trying to hurt Miranda and her father, you have the making of an enjoyable story.
This was a bit different then the rest in the series, which I liked. Duke bides his time trying to win Miranda and once she agrees the flood gates open. I thought this was entertaining. Great read....more
Daniel "Dust" Grayson knew Hannah was off limits, but he couldn't deny the fact that he wanted her for his old lady. Finding out she had gotten herselDaniel "Dust" Grayson knew Hannah was off limits, but he couldn't deny the fact that he wanted her for his old lady.

Dust plans to find Hannah though and he brings his own form of hell with him for those that threaten her.
This was okay, a bit more angsty than the rest in the series. I liked Dust but had a hard time warming to Hannah, her character did stuff that just didn't mesh for me. Had favorites though from the previous books that made an appearance....more

The women he dates are not the type to raise his child, but he has has a long simmering desire for his PA, Anya. When he proposes they have a child together, Anya thinks his humor has taken a whack but Xavier goes on to convince her he is completely serious.
Charming story, I liked the build up for this one. Anya is perplexed by the sudden change in demeanor in Xavier and the way he charms Anya is delightful. I liked that Anya was grounded and she seemed to have the same effect on Xavier. Very entertaining....more

Still sad from his death and completely put off with relationships, she does not expect to be charmed by Clive Stanton. Clive has a reputation as a ladies man who lets them go after a month of their company. Evangeline is not sure she needs the distraction as Clive is one of their clients and someone is spreading rumors about her company and she is striving to keep the clients she has.

Clive wants Evangeline, he doesn't do relationships but he wants one with Eva. Trying to get Eva to trust him is another matter all together, especially when he is hiding something from her.
Charming. This story had a bit of mystery as well as plenty of romance. I liked Clive, he is a bit of alpha male and Eva keeps him on his toes. This story is part of a series, no cliffhanger but it does carry on to next book. Great read for putting your feet up and relaxing....more
