Bringing back the Santinis was definitely a winner for Melissa Schroeder! A Santini in Love tells the story of Dante Santini and Madison Baker. They were acquaintences back at Annapolis Academy and in constant competition. They were both excellent Marines. On the outside they despised each other. Madison went through her deployment but was hit with a IED and was the only one in her unit to survive. This lead to PTSD and the end of her active military duty. When she returned back stateside, she ran into Dante. Madison & Dante were thrown together due to different circumstances, and her safety was left in his hands. Madison put her trust in Dante and she tried to stay strong but Dante did everything in his power to show her that he was there for her. The story had a twist to it that did not come until the very end. And the building of the relationship of Dante and Madison progressed throughout the story nicely. Great opening to the next set of Santinis!...more

Fun & Sexy! Winning combination! I was honored to read this book early... And it was definitely a fun read. Caught in a Trap will take you on an emFun & Sexy! Winning combination! I was honored to read this book early... And it was definitely a fun read. Caught in a Trap will take you on an emotional rollercoaster at times. I truly rooted for the characters and became mad when they were did wrong. Kit Forrester is a true fighter throughtout the story. She constantly had an internal battle going on, mainly because she CARED! Her life didn't blemish her outlook on people, but it did add to a lot of insecurity when it came to herself! She told her friends about her life, but only in a way to protect herself. When outside forces brought her face to face with the "imaginary" Rafe Morgan, she was stunned and at a lost. Rafe Morgan was rich by "accident" but he did his best to keep everyone around him taken care of. When he was informed that he was suppose to know the beautiful, but "plain" Kit Forrester, he had to investigate. Kit & Rafe had a chemistry that not many will ever encounter, but at the same time they had many in their lives that made them question the reality of it all. But when Kit hurt, it was felt with everyone that came in contact with her.
I truly enjoyed this story. Not only did I laugh, and get mad... I became emotional when we looked into the background of the characters. I loved the way that the reality of today was thrown into this story! Issues that many deal with, but most choose to ignore. And while there were a lot of laugh, there were also times when we just couldn't help but hurt.
"Well, well, well," he licked his lips, while frankly appraising her body. "Don't tell me you stowed away on that delivery truck just to meet my uncle?" Kit's eyes widened in surprise. This must be the nephew, Matt Bishop, who was a lot older than the kid in the photograph she had seen in Rafe's wallet. He chuckled. "I hate to burst your bubble, honey, but my Uncle's already engaged. And from what the ranch hands were saying, she's sexy as hell." He put a hand on either side of her waist, effectively imprisoning her against the pool fence. "Although I have to admit you are one hottie with a body." He leaned in letting his chest press against her breasts. "You might do better to look in my direction. I understand you older cougars are always grateful for the attentions of a younger man. I could show you a fun time." "Really?" The most audacious glint lit her wide, blue eyes. Kit focused her gaze with unwavering scrutiny on his face. Matt's brow puckered and he swallowed convulsively, his body fidgeting in acute discomfort. She easily removed his hands. "Your first mistake was reminding me that I was older than you," she intoned dryly. "If you're trying to perfect that line, never use the word grateful and —"
Kit may have had a shaky start with Rafe's nephew, but the relationship between the two shows how easy she was to get along with!

Rachel Hart has been holding together the Renegade camp and all the men ever since Jax hired her toThe Heat has been turned up in the Renegade Camp!!!
Rachel Hart has been holding together the Renegade camp and all the men ever since Jax hired her to run the office. She has slowly been taking on more and more duties and letting her brains show. This has kept the beauty and inner desires that she keeps deep hidden from everyone. It also hides the pain that she is running from. The Renegades are working on one of their biggest contracts & need to make things work in order to expand the company. Jax is pulling out all the stops to look out for his guys. This includes bringing in Nathan Ryker, a Military Explosive Expert that was recommended by Troy. The only problem is that no one, not even Troy is aware of the demons that Ryker is facing. Rachel ends up heading the project beside Ryker and the two are forced to get to know more about each other than they thought would be possible. Ryker didn't expect to stick around so he felt he was perfect for Rachel's no strings romance! It just didn't seem to work that way for either of the two. The numerous factors that was thrown upon them and the people that constantly tried to tear them apart didn't help. But they also had person battle that made you look at whether or not they could make love last through all the inner demons. I am glad that Ryker was forced to deal with his personal issues and made himself better before he tried to move forward with love. That made the love more realistic. Rachel and Ryker were definitely HOT together! They will be hard to top! ...more
