Very fun read. Aiden goes a bit crazy because he knows Carolina is his soul mate. Carolina though is more stuck in her head and her experience from a bad relationship. Really enjoyed this one....more

At times a little melodramatic, but overall I thought this was a good story. Matt has one part of the story that I kind of wished they had had a bigger conversation about but it gets resolved. Liked both characters and will go back to check out other books in this series....more

However Lexi didn't realize that Luke is the brother to her office crush and her boss. What will happen once Luke finds out Lexi is actually a mom of two and who her boss is?
There is a lot more that goes on in this story, I had not realized a cliffhanger. Argh,...just give me one book please or some finality if a series. Even though my angst over the cliffhanger I thought this was highly entertaining. I liked Lexi a lot and thought her emotions regarding her current place in life was spot on. Will read the next book....more

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I loved that Bellamy didn't just succumb to JT, she was weary as well. JT has a hard road ahead of him especially after he makes a few blunders, but I liked that he had that he had a hint of that crazy alpha male when it came to Bellamy. Great read, look forward to more....more

Chloe has a back story where she had been told she was in a car wreck by her family, she knew the scars she had were not from any car wreck but her parents insisted that be her story. She was running far away from the nightmares that still haunted her and she knew she would never be rid from.
Now she finds herself being kidnapped by the boogeyman, Lucca. Lucca had been a bit of an anomaly in her life but having him kidnap her has her scared and ready to run again. Lucca though has his reasons, he doesn't see Chloe as a scarred woman who is scared of her own shadow, he sees her as beautiful and plans to help her find herself again. The problem is though after a life filled with untrust how can she trust a killer?
I have always thought a book where the hero is a true villain who finds love would be fascinating and this was. Lucca is not necessarily a likeable character but you do. He is a hard man and has so many facets to his personalty that it is fascinating. This is a slow build romance but absolutely worth reading, I am ready to reread again. ...more

Deciding he needs to retaliate, he decides revenge in an unconditional way is the best way to make the man hurt. Alaric pursues Bella Reed, his enemy's daughter.
Bella is a full figured beautiful woman, she just doesn't see herself like that. When Alaric expresses interest in her, Bella is expecting the other shoe to drop. Every man she has been involved with has been after her fathers money or some other self confidence kicker that has made Bella weary of getting involved again. What will she do when she finds out Alaric is a facade, even if he claims to truly have feelings for her.
Enjoyed this one. Alaric was a jerk, but I think that was how his character was supposed to be and when he meets and spends time with Bella he begins to question himself and his motives. Always a fan of Sam Crescent books....more

Erik and Paige had a connection that no one ever got close too, now Erik is an adult and back for Paige. He knows she is his other half and now is going to take the time to prove they belong together.
I wish this story was just a tad bit longer, very fun read. I really enjoyed the way that Erik reintroduced himself to Paige, definitely sizzle on each page. ...more

Jill was married to a man who was always away, that was fine with her especially when she got pregnant because he became more abusive over time. Jill kept that fact close to her chest and finally has had enough. She left to go to Hawthorne and be close to her friend as well as get on her own two feet.
Cal Jackson, President of the Knight's MC, is a man who knows what he wants. He has lived his life doing right by his club and son, and he is certain of one thing, he wants Jill. He gets that she is hesitant and he plans to be by her side when she realizes what they have will be different. Once Jill is ready, the threat of her ex becomes more intensified. Jill needs to let Cal protect her and he will or he will die trying.
The end of a fantastic series. When the series had started I had not expected Cal to get his own story but am thrilled he did. I thought Jill was perfect for Cal, she doesn't think she is strong but she is. Cal is so patient with Jill, he has a swagger that can't be matched by the other men in the series. Excellent entertainment....more

When he finds out the firecracker whose name is Emerie Rose, was conned into thinking she was renting his place he agrees to help her. Drew is not one to help out a woman, unless it is in bed, otherwise he steers clear having been burned badly before. However with Emerie he offers her his extra office space until his secretary comes back.
Drew knew he wanted to sleep with Emerie, but he never expected to want more than that. Now for the first time he is feeling like she is worth the effort. When his ex ends up trying to dislodge his life again, Drew has to decide if he is willing to let Emerie stand by his side or if he should let her go.
Loved this, has a perfect mix of humor, romance, and just plain old dirty fun. Drew is crass but I think in some ways it is his shield, as his story unfolds you get why he is the way he is with women. Had several surprises that I think readers will thoroughly enjoy. Excellent entertainment....more

However, her Aunts best laid plan may not be te best in Poppy's interest. Poppy finds that she has a to make some difficult decisions about her future and in doing so Poppy finds herself.
This was intense and quite different than what I expected. A tearjerker for sure. I thought Poppy was a force to be reckoned with, she could have easily been broken and in a way she still is but she is also stronger by the end of the story. Inspirational, look forward to the next book. ...more

Jace knows that he has something different with Ella but with others trying to break them apart and the impending doom of her her stepmother can they truly find a happily ever after.
I liked the beginning and felt it was a bit draggy toward the end. Overall fun retelling of Cinderella. I thought the stepmother was hideous and the story had a different twist to the stepsister which I found refreshing. If you like classic fairy tale retellings this is one to pick up....more

Tildy Fletcher meets Hawk when her car breaks down, he is instantly attracted and invites her out. However Tildy who has been sheltered her whole life makes a statement that freaks him out and he has no plans of pursuing her. Tildy gets herself in a bit of trouble and Hawk decides he can give her friendship, but then Tildy asks for more and he is willing but at a distance. It seems like both are feeling the pull but neither know what to do about it.
I wanted to like this and thought the beginning was okay and the middle got better, however towards the end it was ruined for me. Hawk who was my favorite of all the characters, I just wanted to throttle. He is clueless, and Tildy is so naive I just can't believe she is that dumb. Just didn't do it for me....more

Greer has kept his anonymity by taking classes online and with that he meets fellow student Aveline Michaels. Aveline has no idea who Greer really is and when an opportunity presents itself Greer's bandmates takes matters into their own hands and surprises Aveline who is watching the concert.
Aveline doesn't know what to think, their is definitely chemistry and flirting going on with Greer but does he feel the same? Taking a chance, Aveline agrees to spend time with Greer to see where this is all going, but learning to spend time with a band and an unexpected turn has Aveline questioning if she and Greer really can build something together.
You are immediately swept away by the spirit of this story. Greer I thought was down to earth and was crushing hard on Aveline. Aveline had put her life on hold to take care of her bed ridden mother so she spent her time between going to school and working two jobs. Finding time to build something with Greer is increasingly difficult. Greer has his own problems that unfold as the story progresses. I thoroughly enjoyed this, perfect for nuzzling up with a blanket in this winter weather. ...more

His boss has had enough, she makes a threat either ship up or ship out. Roman finds himself distracted though when he meets Lexi Robertson. He doesn't know what Lexi was doing at the Cold Fury office, but he is definitely intrigued by the little rebel.
Lexi has a secret one that is about to be revealed and it involves the owner of Cold Fury. Lexi is definitely attracted to Roman and the feeling is mutual, both are out of their element with one another but can't seem to resist one another. However there is someone else in Lexi's life that wants her far away from Roman, but what does Lexi want?
Loved this, Lexi is a hoot and so sassy. Roman is a fascinating character because he is kind of cold and distant, but with Lexi he opens up. I think this might be my favorite in the series thus far. If you like Hockey, alpha men and romance, this is one to pick up....more
