Tackling sensitive subjects can sometimes make a story stiff and hard to read. Author Jemi Fraser knows how to overcome these hurdles with a moving story that flows smoothly and draws you in quickly for a fascinating journey.

The author tackles an attack on a woman and all the problems that follow, especially when the woman tries to handle everything all on her own. The female protagonist is strong, vulnerable, funny, scared, and very protective of her family and friends. The male protagonist is

Okay, I'm a fan. I've read each Bloo Moose Romance, and this, the 5th, is THE BEST! I've yet to put the book down for more than a second. Reading straight through because it's what I do when the book is just so good!
When the little sister, Lilianne LaChance, the youngest of the LaChance sect, comes home from college, she does it with a big secret. One that can no longer stay a secret but instead of going home, she hides out with an old family friend. Who knew Max was also a crush? Who knew he al

Liliane's attacker escapes from prison, so she heads to the one place she feels safe - Max's house - because she knows he's not home. She thinks she's keeping her loved ones safe by not letting them know where she is. Before long, Max realizes that in order to keep her safe, she's going to have to let her family know what's happened. This is my first read from this author, and holy cow - it's a great one! We have a terrific romance brewing between two people, each of whom has been in love with t ...more

Book five in the Bloo Moose series a well written Christmas story that held my interest until the end. This book grabbed me and was not letting go until I had finished reading. I liked the name of each chapter. Lil LaChance has a secret she is keeping from her loved ones, she meets writer Max Fortini who helps her. There is suspense, evil, a villain, drama, a very strong woman, and the man who she comes to love. I recommend this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am vol ...more

The 6th book in this series, with Lil and Max being the main characters, turned out to a great ride full of suspense and heart-stopping romance. Max certainly got a surprise when he came home and finding Lil hiding from an prison escapee wasn't quite what he had in mind. Despite that, these two have almost instant chemistry and the fact that he has cared about her without her knowledge for years, just strengthens their relationship. Both characters have very strong personalities but Max's determ ...more

I was immediately excited that Max, one of the main characters, is a thriller writer who lives in a dream home in the woods. Swoon!

Max comes home after a book tour to find someone has taken residence in his house. It turns out to be Lil, the sister of two of his buddies. The big question is, why is she hiding out there?

Max is awesome. I so love him. I like the way he thinks, I like his overall tone. And I love the chemistry between Max and Lil. They fit so well together. His writing and her ph

If you want a brilliant book to read that has some romance along with action and suspense, then this is the book for you! Trust me there is nothing to not love about this book. The writing style is perfect, great description of the location as well as the characters. These two main characters are wonderful together and I couldn’t help but smile and even laugh at times as I was excitedly reading this book. The icing on the cake with this book is Thor, who wouldn’t fall in love with him!

This book is a wonderful mixture of swoon-worthy romance and captivating suspense. Max, a very successful author, comes home to an unexpected, but not unwelcome houseguest. It doesn’t take long for him to notice that Lil, the woman who has unknowingly held his heart for years, is in trouble. Her nervousness, her much slimmer frame and her terrifying nightmares are all clues that she is under tremendous stress and has been for some time. Determined to find out what is going on and why Lil has dis ...more
