As the pieces of what happened to her while she was missing are filled in, CiModel Ciara Kelly woke up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the pieces of what happened to her while she was missing are filled in, Ciara knows one thing she will never model again. Starting life over with her sister in Washington, Ciara finds a new career path doing the makeup on those who have lost their lives at a funeral home. This new job is surprising to Ciara, as she likes it, but it is triggering memories of what happened as well as a few other things that Ciara can't explain. When the people who had hurt her find out her memory is coming back, Ciara is in danger again, but this time will she be able to survive?
Great story with a unique plot line. I thought Ciara was a strong woman who doesn't quite realize how strong she is, which makes her more likeable. Cat and mouse suspense from page one, great for a weekend read.

Finding out that Harlow has been working as a stripper though changes everything, Kase decides o stake his claim but Harlow is not as easily swayed. Harlow tends to bolt when something becomes to intense, Kase though is giving her time to adjust to having him in her life.
Harlow keeps everything inside, she omits certain things about her life from those closest to her. Kase sees through it though, calls her out frequently on it. Harlow wants a chance to breathe, to be honest and not carry the weight of her world on her shoulders. Even though she is scared, she decides to put her trust in Kase and when she does her whole life brightens.
Another excellent book in the Hyde series. Loved Kase, he is pure male yumminess but he is so sweet with Harlow. He has a way of knowing what she needs or wants before she does, at times he pushes and Harlow reacts but he lets her vent and discusses it honestly. I liked this a lot, it made him so adorable that you just wanted to curl up and keep this book by your side. Can't wait for what is next, anxious to see which character is going to be the highlight in the upcoming book....more

Meeting Jake, Piper quickly decides he is the most stunning man she has ever met, but he is a total jerk who keeps giving her mixed signals. Piper decides he lost his chance and is ready to move forward, but Jake steps up deciding to give a relationship a try.
Jake was worried about wanting Piper as much as he did. He tried to stay away from Piper, believing she was too good to be true, but the more he finds out the more genuine he realizes she is. Jake takes a chance on Piper and is thoroughly enamored, but when it appears sh has a stalker, Jake's level of protectiveness goes to an all new level that could cause problems where Piper is concerned.
I have zero clue why I did not pick this up sooner. Shame on me because this was epic on all levels. I loved Piper, she is cooky, unique, and adorable, she is sweetness to Jake's hardness. Jake, hubba hubba hubba, pure alpha male and one of my favorites now. Jake is intense, he knows what he wants and it is Piper. Fantastic read, can't say enough good things about this book....more

Bi-sexual he didn't care if he was with a woman or man, but it was always group sex nothing more. When he meets Devon Bannister, her beauty radiates. Cole wants her in his bed but not alone. Devon though will have to decide if she is willing to join Cole in a threesome, but once she makes a decision will Cole be willing to share?
This was a very different story, not quite what I expected. Cole is out there, he is who he is and he doesn't care what others think. I liked this for Cole, it would be easy to be in such a high profile life and feel like you had to keep things hidden. Devon, I loved the way you could read her feelings, made her character believable. Great read and unique....more

He knows she is the woman who is meant from him, but in one moment everything they are building is questioned, when the dominoes fall will be able to move past everything that happened.
I was unable to put this one down. Initially Heath is a jerk especially to Laney. Laney is hilarious, she beats to her own drummer and finds herself in embarrassing situations quite often. This was a refreshing read, you were not sure how it would all unfold but what a wicked ride along the way....more

This was a great read. Loved Sawyer, who is pure alpha male. He is so protective of his wife. I thought the story was complex and could see the different sides to how it unfolds. The children are a hoot, some of their antics are adorable. Wonderful story for a spring day....more
