When a “chance” meeting brings the two into close proximity, neither can resist. Love incinerates their preconceived ideas about their individual worlds… and each other.
Olivia Beaumont isn’t your typical college smart girl. But Brax Jenkins isn’t your typical college bad boy, either. When Olivia arrives at Winston University, she only wants to blend into the background. She hopes no one will notice her. Maybe she will actually be able to forget about the hell of her high school senior year and build an actual life for herself. That all changes when “Winston’s big dog starting pitcher” plows into her as she’s moving into her new dorm.
For Brax life is all about having fun. He is living life his way, enjoying the hell out of everything he can. Having grown up in with the worst the world has to offer, he is damn sure going to take the good when it’s there to grab. Olivia (Gracie or Sunshine to him) turns out to be the very best thing he’s ever seen. Of course, with his lot in life, the good never last long. And his tenuous grasp on happiness is quickly snatched away.
I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this story. I’m a huge Cindy Miles fan because I love the way her books make me feel. She has a unique voice that is positive and uplifting. She takes a mousy emotionally scarred little girl and with the help of a foul mouthed Boston bad boy, slowly brings her out of the protective bubble she’s locked around herself. Not being from Boston, I liked how Ms. Miles “helped” me hear Brax’s unique accent by repeating words in that Southie dialect. I also got a kick out of Brax’s quick bursts of temper, using fists when necessary to defend Olivia from anything and everything.
I could totally relate to Olivia being more open and snarky via text (in the beginning) than she was comfortable being in the real world. I felt that Ms. Miles nailed the awkwardness, cockiness and doubts this age group faces on a daily basis.
I know I’ve already said this but I LOVE this story. So much so that I already read it through from front to back twice and hit the highlights (bookmarking them on my kindle) a third time. I even hopped over and preordered the second book in the series completely not know what it could be about. I just can’t wait to dive back into this fun world. Great job Cindy Miles....more
Sam Moreland offered to lend his friend money to save her business in exchange for a fake marriage that would keep his daughter out of the clutches ofSam Moreland offered to lend his friend money to save her business in exchange for a fake marriage that would keep his daughter out of the clutches of an unfit mother. He never dreamed it would turn into more.
When Rosie Baxter agreed to accept a loan from an old friend she’s had a crush on forever in exchange for a temporary marriage pact, she never dreamed she’d find her happily ever after.
I thought I would take a quick look at the first chapter of this book on a weekday in preparation for a weekend read. That didn’t happen. Before I knew it, I was more than halfway through the book and the only reason I finally quit reading was because my Kindle battery died. I admit I came home from work the next day and finished the story. This book was well worth the sleepy morning.
A Suitable Wife has it all. Passion, friendship, a villainous ex (or two), picturesque settings, heart touching backstory, dedicated family, and some great love scenes. Sweetwater Springs is a place where anyone would feel welcome. Carol Burnside has created a community that I hope to visit often. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series....more
Psychic, Katherine Crystal, needs help from one of Atlanta’s finest. Unfortunately Detective Jack Hale doesn’t believe in psychics. After ignoring anPsychic, Katherine Crystal, needs help from one of Atlanta’s finest. Unfortunately Detective Jack Hale doesn’t believe in psychics. After ignoring an initial call for help from the sexy psychic and leaving the Atlanta Police Department looking bad in the press, Jack is assigned to protect Katherine as she attempts to solve one of their most visible cases. When Katherine’s new found celebrity status brings out the bad guys, it’s up to Jack to keep her alive.
Sixth Sense can get pretty intense. Marilyn Baron really digs deep into the psyche of a serial killer. She also digs deep into the give and take of a budding romance. Jack and Katherine really have nothing in common. Both have trust issues that relate to the other’s profession. But if they hadn’t been forced to work together, they never would have found their true soul mates. Sixth Sense has a great mix of romance, spine tingling suspense, and real hope for two jaded individuals for a happily ever after. I’m looking forward to reading book 2 in the Psychic Crystal Mystery series....more

She isn’t crazy. She isn’t crazy. She isn’t crazy.
Or is she?
Dr. Zoe Morgan has made researching and saving the wales her life’s work. Thanks to a connection she can’t explain, she’s able to communication with them. But with every gift, there is a curse. And unfortunately Zoe’s curse is insanity. Pegged with panic attacks and a fear of following in her father’s footsteps right off the deep end, Zoe does her best to ignore the voices. If only that worked.
Gavin Cassidy is a rock star set on a path of total self-destruction. Then the Dreaming plucks him right out of his pity party and forces him to acknowledge his duties as a Sentinel. After having ignored his gifts as a Water Element since tragedy struck years earlier, Gavin hoped this summons would be a quick in and out of the Dreaming. But the rock star soon discovers he isn’t going to get off so easy.
How to begin this review? Wow just about sums it up.
I read a blurb Kendall Grey posted on Goodreads and IMMEDIATELY had to read this book. Thankfully I was able to finagle an ARC. Ms. Grey’s description of Gavin Cassidy made me an immediate fan. As flawed as any hero I’ve ever read, Gavin is one unique dude. I could totally see this spoiled rock star trying to thwart his destiny. One has to wonder if he would have been able to ignore the calling if he hadn’t met his “Muse” in the Dreaming?
What grabbed my attention and made me want to read this book was the introduction of Zoe and her life or death plight to save the wales. Her struggle in the very beginning of the story almost cost her that life but it really showed us who Zoe is.
Inhale is sexy, raw and in-your-face. The hero cusses, smokes, drinks and admits he has slept with his share of women. Because of this, the author’s unique voice makes this story stand out from any other I’ve read. With a fast pace and very little filler words, this story will keep you moving on to the next chapter no matter how many times you try to stop.
