Sometimes your past can rear its head and bite you in the ass. And sometimes the girl you remember turns into a woman you can’t forget and the man you have been dreaming of can be the man you need in real life. Love is never simple, and sometimes it isn’t enough.
Hayley was your innocent girl next door who once spurned by the love of her life transformed herself into free spirit spitfire. She is free with her passions and knows what she wants, or does she? I like her fire and spirit, and the fact that she realizes that not everything is black and white. Mitch is the man who realizes a little too late that work can’t be everything in your life. He is endearing in how lost he is this new phase if his life. I was rooting on him to get it together. And let’s not forget Hayley’s plus one, Ty. I love the permanent party heartthrob, and he adds some mischief and spice to the situation. Passion is overflowing on the island and love is the air....more

Who would of thought an encounter with a butterfly could bring you face to face with your very own hero and your knight in shining armor. Kennedy is faced with the choice of having hunky fireman, Luke, or gorgous Addison. But why choose one when you can have them both, or can she?
Kennedy is a feisty American who is trying to find her place in life. She is trying to forget her one night stand in New York and come to terms with her kinky fantasies. She is like any woman trying to find a balance in what she really wants and what is expected of her. Australian Luke is a sweetheart who is trying to resist his urges and being confused by new ones. I love his honesty to himself and that he misses signs just like the rest of us do. And the stunning British rake, Addison doesn’t disappoint. I loved seeing him evolve from the fun loving devil may care man into something more. These three are a treat to get to know, and oh so sinful....more
A second chance at love is not guaranteed in life, and finding that second chance in paradise is even rarer. BCarys' review posted on Guilty Pleasures
A second chance at love is not guaranteed in life, and finding that second chance in paradise is even rarer. Bianca is struggling with her divorce when she stumbles across the gorgeous Brody. They always say the window to a person`s soul is through their eyes, and Brody`s eyes are easy to peer into and get lost in.
Bianca`s struggles with letting go of her marriage are admirable. I like that its not that easy for her to just walk away from the love her life, and that she won`t close her eyes to all her problems just because that would be the easy thing to do. Brody is a man after my own heart. Tall, strong, and eyes that would melt your panties off. He is a fighter who`s only goal is to see Bianca in his arms. The chemistry between these two is flaming out of controll!!...more

In Out of Bounds we meet Jetta, a troubled but innocent woman who meets her match in determined sexy businessman Anton. Can they both look towards their future when the past is beating down their door?
Jetta struggles with a past that keeps her from having the life she wants. You see her struggle internally with her fears and her growing attraction to Anton. I like that you see that struggle and it’s just not pushed under the rug in a moment of passion.
At First, Anton comes off as a gorgeous man who is only interested in what he wants. Then he surprises you when he shows he is lovable and likable all rolled into one endearing package.
So join Jetta and Anton in this touching, sexy read where a shared house wreaks havoc on their lives, midnight disasters opens other doors for them, and where a book and suitcase could possibly lead them in an unforgettable direction.
Kayla has lost everything that she loves and Hart has nothing he cares about except for his freedom. These twoCarys' review posted on Guilty Pleasures
Kayla has lost everything that she loves and Hart has nothing he cares about except for his freedom. These two have nothing in common but heartbreak and a mission to find the key. Can this good girl help the bad boy werewolf find the key and his heart before the world goes up in smoke.
Kayla is your typical good girl that is heartbroken over the loss of her sister. Her sister was everything she’s not. So now she has to channel some of what made her sister special to find the key in order to save Hart and the world. She stumbles through learning that the world isn’t so black and white and that the supernatural are very real and now she has a soul sucking dragon on her tail. Hart is a bad boy werewolf who was marked at birth to have moon madness. He is an outcast who is also a blood slave to the soul sucking dragon. Hart is doing anything in his power to gain his freedom but Kayla gets in the way, and Hart has to choose his freedom or once in lifetime kind of love.
This book does a good job of laying the groundwork for the rest of the series. I took it as an introduction to a lot of characters we will see in the future while giving us a couple to root for. I would have liked to see more of a romantic interaction between Kayla and Hart, but it was also important to future books that we get a better understanding of the world that this takes place in. I also liked how the author incorporated mythology so effortlessly. I can’t wait to see how the next installment unfolds.

When polar opposites attract we get to sit by and watch the fireworks begin. People can’t help who they love even when they run screaming in the opposite direction of their heart’s desire. Buckle in for a wild ride in which two people fall in love and fight it till the bitter end.
Claire is a tough feisty woman who knows what she wants but is unwilling to tramp down her temper to please the man who haunts her dreams. She is snappy and doesn’t take any crap from the big Hawaiian and calls him on his bull shit. I love that she is mostly comfortable in her skin, but she is just like every woman who questions herself on occasions. She is not going to roll over on the issues that she feels strongly about, and I like that. Daniel is a bad boy with a heart of gold, even if he doesn’t believe he has a heart. He is rough and tough and a man’s man who is afraid of hurting the “fragile” Claire. His inner turmoil over his desire for her is very endearing and you fall in love with him because of his insecurities. He is the reason we fall for bad boys. And the sex is hot and wild just like the man. Makes me want to hop a flight to Hawaii and try a few things out.
I also love the beauty of the setting for this book. Cathryn Cade gives us a glimpse into the Hawaiian culture and the paradise that is Hawaii. I love that the history of the family and the beauty of their surroundings are so eloquently written about. It was a joy to catch a glimpse of the underwater world surrounding Nawea Bay....more
From Florida to Bolivia, Lina’s past and future collide to make for one hell of an adventure. SeeingCarys' review posted on Guilty Pleasures
From Florida to Bolivia, Lina’s past and future collide to make for one hell of an adventure. Seeing her past lives and preparing for a battle in the future has Lina really cranky. Throw in her two hot dragon shifter mates, her gorgeous Watcher, and her many other adopted family members and you have a recipe for love and laughter and a little bit of heartache all rolled into this book.
I love that Lina can hold her own with all the mess that is going on in her life. Adjusting to all her super Goddess powers, dealing with the not so helpful Baba Yaga, playing referee between her dragons, and trying to thwart evil from taking over has her tired and ready to just blow shit up. She is strong and becoming a regular bad ass and all her men want to do is protect her. Her sarcastic sense of humor lightens the mood when everything goes to shit, and you realize that she is not some wilting flower who will hide behind everyone else no matter how much they want her to.
The men in this book are oh so hot. Jan and Rick are sweet dragon shifters who are your typical siblings. They are arguing over most things, but they both agree on how much they love Lina and want to protect her from all the bad things coming. Zach is a man after my own heart. He adores his Goddess and is her soul mate in so many ways. He too has a fantastic sense of humor, but is fierce in his love for Lina and his mate Kael. Zach and Lina have loved and lived with one another throughout time and this book gives a better understanding of how they became who they are and an insight into why they need each other so much.
This book introduced new characters and prepared us for the battles to come in future books. I think this was an excellent addition and can’t wait to see what happens to next. Tymber has woven a fantastic web of love, lies, and kick ass women. I cannot wait for the next one!
*This book needs to be read as a part of the series. It is not a stand alone....more

Another fantastic addition to the Triple Trouble series. Elain and her mates are at it again and add in Lina and her crew and you have a book full of hotties, laughter, and love. Throw in some new people just to make it interesting and we are on an adventure that takes us from the past into the present with a glimpse of the future to intrigue us.
Elain is really growing as a character in this book. She is finding her way in a new world and I like that she is dealing with it in normal ways. Not just jumping on the crazy train with a smile and shrug, but dealing with the changes in her life with shock and booze. In other words I like that she would deal with it like I would. I also love the fact that she is a kickass woman that can hold her own in dangerous situations. And her hotter than hot triplets are so supportive that I wish I had them for myself. Ain, Brody, and Cail are the perfect trio to handle all of the craziness that is going on, but I have to say I love me some Brody above all others.
I am so excited to see where all my favorite charters end up, and how they get there. The battles between good and evil are so well played that it has me wanting more. I can’t wait for the next installment so that I can see my favorites kick some ass. Tymber has woven a web that will keep us wanting more....more

Scott and Leo are goal keepers for a professional hockey team who have set their sights on bistro owner, Kelly. And I must say she is one lucky girl. You have Leo who is the definition of tall, dark, and yummy, and blonde Adonis, Scott. With night and day personality’s you have enough to keep a girl on her toes. Kelly reminds me of the woman next door who has confidence issues. She comes across has very real with the same worries I would have if I was in her shoes.
