Intern Renee Maxwell has a chance at her dream job as assistant to a renowned archaeologist in exotic Turkey. Things get a little weird when she finds a unique crystal and starts hallucinating crazy yet sexy things. Her once staid boss now looks like a gorgeous demi-god and underwear model combined. Her feminist ideals are challenged with each seductive look and bit of banter he gives her, but she’s not falling for his charm. Damon Cubins never met a woman his Incubus powers couldn’t seduce…until now. If he doesn’t find an ancient crystal, he’ll turn into a full-fledged demon. When his new Intern Renee arrives on site, wearing the exact necklace he needs to save his existence, he thinks he’s got it made until he discovers a curse is keeping him from claiming what’s his. He doesn’t want to harm the woman who has enraptured his heart, but Damon isn’t the only dark creature seeking the crystal’s powers. Winning Renee’s love to release the curse becomes the only cure to save her life.

Review:

Renee was so excited to be on an archeological dig with the famous Damon Cubins.  What she doesn’t bargain for is the aloof way he acts with her and the rest of the team.  Those she knows he is scorching hot she can’t stand his attitude and lack of focus toward the dig. Soon, Renee finds a crystal that she decides to have made into a necklace.  Unfortunately, that gem is the same one that Damon is looking for.  Soon Damon and Renee are drawn to each other in a strong attraction that given Damon’s paranormal background will put them in danger for other like him .  When Renee discovers what he really is will she still care about him or will she convince herself everything he is has influenced her feelings about everything?

This was a really enrapturing read.  It was so hard to put it down once I started.  The reader is truly drawn in a fantastic world that blends modern life with that of paranormal entities like Fae, Succubi and Incubi.  Damon and Renee’s characters are quite multi-dimensional.  As the story grows, you will discover more about each that propels the story is different directions.  It is also, their love story that is sexy and fun.  Though Damon has the ability to make most women fall in bed with him it was his inability to do that that really brought a fun element to this story.  This amazing novel manages to navigate the waters of paranormal, romance and suspense with an ease that has the reader turning pages faster and faster until we learn the outcome of Renee and Damon.  Overall, this is a phenomenal story that will take you on a journey you will have a hard time forgetting.

About THE PROBLEM WITH FOREVER:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a riveting new story about friendship, survival, and finding your voice.

For some people, silence is a weapon.

For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield.

Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.

Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.

It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory must make a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.

About CHARGED:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the second installment in the Saints of Denver series featuring a bad girl and a by the book attorney who could be her salvation…or her ruin.

Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Ever. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome. Avett is a pink-haired troublemaker with a bad attitude and a history of picking the wrong men.

When Avett lands in a sea of hot water because of one terrible mistake, the only person who can get her out of it is the insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on the no-nonsense attorney who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance. He literally has her fate in his hands. Yet there is something about him that makes her want to convince him to loosen his tie and have a little fun…with her.

Quaid never takes on clients like the impulsive young woman with a Technicolor dye job. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. Still, he’s determined to keep their relationship strictly business. But doing so is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.

As they work side-by-side, they’ll have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other—because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.

Review:

Avett seems to find herself in trouble more than she’s not.  But, when her trouble lands her in jail facing serious charges she is scared.  She is especially scared when she meets her incredibly sexy and no non-sense attorney, Quaid.  Quaid doesn’t care about Avett’s story.  Soon enough Quaid realizes Avett isn’t his normal client.  Avett and Quaid start to become closer and their attraction to one another is electric.  Avett’s trouble continues to follow her and effect those around her.  Can Avett let herself care for Quaid knowing he will be in danger due to her being a trouble magnet?

I love Jay Crownover’s books.  This especially goes with her Saints of Denver series.  I love her Marked men but so far Zeb and Quaid have been too steamy to put down.  Avett and Quaid’s story was both fun, suspenseful and sexy.  The steamy scenes are woven throughout the suspense and romance.  Avett and Quaid really develop and have depth as the story progressed.  I enjoyed their banter and back stories.  It truly gave the reader some context to how they are truly attracted to one another.  At first, they are a very odd combination.  I was even thinking “where is she going?”  But, once all is revealed, at only the right time, the story has taken so many dramatic and exciting turns that you will not be able to put the book down.  Those steamy scenes will fog your e-reader and the suspense will have you holding on to it for dear life.  Charged is an awesome continuation of the Saints of Denver series.  Can’t wait for the next…I’m hoping for Wheeler (hint, hint).

Excerpt:

Quaid

I narrowed my eyes at her, shifted my weight from foot to foot as her proximity and the charge of her pushing and me pulling thickened both my blood and my cock. I was an attorney for a reason. I never met an argument I didn’t like or that I didn’t feel compelled to win. The way Avett always seemed to challenge me was as much of a turn-on as her curvy little body was.

“Where is your father?” I lifted my eyes from her penetrating gaze in search of the big biker. I didn’t need to try and explain a black eye or a broken arm to Orsen on top of why I suddenly had no interest in searching out a pretty piece of ass to spend time with.

“He’s waiting at the truck. I told him I had some questions I needed to ask you about what happens next.”

“Do you?”

“Do I what?” She was getting increasingly annoyed and I wanted to groan at the way it made her cheeks flush and her breathing hitch. I bet she looked the same way when she was about to come.

Shit. That was not the direction I needed my thoughts to go, but now that they were there I didn’t have a chance in hell of wrangling them back into the safe zone.

“Do you have questions about what happens next?” My voice didn’t sound like my own and I knew there was no hiding the wayward direction of my thoughts as they played out in my gaze as I watched her carefully.

Slowly, her head shook back and forth, dislodging the bun at the back of her head. Pink strands of hair floated around her face, curling over her shoulders, and my fingertips itched to reach out and push it off her face.

“I know what happens next, Quaid…do you?” Her tone had dropped to a husky whisper that hit me right in the dick. My entire body tensed up and I almost, very nearly, leaned down and met her as she lifted up on her tiptoes towards me. I wanted to kiss her. I wanted her to kiss me. But over the top of her head, as she moved towards me, I caught sight of a familiar face. The heady, little bubble of seduction and intoxicating risk that Avett had created around me popped, dropping me hard, back into reality.

I turned my head as her lips grazed my cheek, and even though it was as innocent as any kiss had ever been, it felt more erotic, more forbidden, and more illicit than any of the actual sex I had ever had. This little slip of a woman could demolish me, waste me, annihilate me, and if I allowed her to do it, I knew it would feel better than anything had in a very long time.

Review: Dirty Girl by Meghan March

Today I get to share with you the awesome book Dirty Girl.  This was the first book I have read by Meghan March but I know I want to read more by her.  This erotic story takes you on a ride that will leave your ereader in flames.

DG AMAZONBook Blurb:

Desperately seeking rich, famous, single guy with a giant cock to make my lying, cheating, should’ve-been-born-dickless ex-boyfriend realize what he’s just lost.

Oh, and I give great head. Just sayin’.

No man in his right mind would answer that ad.

Except thousands did.

My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton’s playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.

Cue my look of shock when one of Hollywood’s hottest new bad boys, Cavanaugh Westman, comes knocking at my door and drops his pants to prove that he does indeed have a giant cock.

What he doesn’t have is an explanation for why he disappeared from my life without a word three years ago, only to show up on the big screen two years later, killing bad guys in action flicks.

And now he wants me again.

What the hell do I do now?

 Review:

Greer realizes that alcohol is not her friend when she puts a risque ad online.  What she doesn’t expect to come out of it is the one man that left her high and dry three years ago.  When Cav sees Greer’s ad he knows she is talking directly to him.  So, when Cav shows up at her door and drops his pants to show her he fulfills the ad qualifications they are thrown into a whirlwind of sex, lust and memories.  But, when your truths are hidden what will happen when they come out of the bedroom and hit you smack in the face.

This was a great, addictive read.  Greer and Cav’s relationship is sexy and erotic.  They have an electricity that spurs on this fantastic story. I enjoyed the flashbacks to when they were first together.  It really gave the reader a base for Greer and Cav’s feelings.  The story is a great mix of eroticism and romance woven in an addictive story.  The characters of Greer and Cav are both sexy and exciting.  They are characters to be envious of.  Overall, this was a story that has equal parts steam and sex that will equal to a story you will never forget especially with heart-stopping surprise in the end.

DGteaser2

EXCERPT:

Greer

No. Fucking. Way.

Can you photoshop real life? Because that’s the only way I can possibly be seeing through my peephole what I’m seeing right now.

Cavanaugh Westman. In the flesh. Outside my door.

The knock stopped me mid-shuffle on the way to my coffeemaker. So that makes me an uncaffeinated, makeup-less, messy-bunned, legging-wearing couch surfer who hasn’t showered in the two days I’ve spent holed up in my apartment.

He can’t see me like this.

I’ve had so many fantasies of how it will go when I finally came face-to-face with Cav again. I’ll be wearing something sexy, yet classy. Perfect hair, makeup, eyebrows. I’ll adopt a casually disinterested mien. He’ll be devastated when he realizes what he missed out on by standing me up that night and disappearing without a word.

There’s no way in hell I’m answering that door. Cav Westman can sit out in my hallway all day. Not opening it.

But Cav reads my mind, the bastard.

“Open the door, baby girl. Your message came through loud and clear with that ad.”

A barely audible gasp escapes my lungs.

“That’s right, I know you’re standing there. So, open the door, Greer.”

His deep, gravelly voice stirs memories I thought I wiped out of my brain. Apparently not.

I rush to the couch to grab my phone. I need to text Banner. Need to freak out with her and schedule an emergency spa day so I can be all the things I need to be before facing him again.

My thoughts come to a screeching halt. I do not need to impress Cav Westman. He’s nothing to me. And I can prove it right now by opening the door. He’ll see exactly how much I don’t care about his opinion.

Before I can change my mind, or look down at my shirt to make sure I’m not sporting any stains from yesterday’s coffee, I reach for the dead bolts and unlock them before I twist the doorknob and tug.

As soon as the door is open, I know I’ve made a terrible mistake.

Through the peephole, he was marginally distorted. On the billboards and movie posters plastered to the sides of buses in the city, he looked like a total stranger. But Cav in the flesh?

Devastating.

I lose my grip on the door and it swings open.

How does he not look older? No new lines bracket his mouth or crease the corners of his eyes. Instead, a new scar curves along his jaw, giving him a sexier, more dangerous look. His shoulders are impossibly broader, making his hips seem even narrower.

His hazel eyes flash as he takes me in—at least they haven’t changed. Today they’re more tawny gold than gray or green. Guessing what color they would be was part of the game I played with myself before. His dark brown hair is sexy and disheveled, longer than the buzz cut he had before, but everything else is the same. Worn jeans, a plain T-shirt, and scuffed boots. Strong, bold features that many a man would find impossible to carry off, but are the reason millions of women would line up to have Cavanaugh Westman’s babies.

“What are you doing here?” I whisper, reminding myself that I no longer have some naive fantasy of being the one for Cav.

His gaze returns to my face, and I know his inspection of me can’t be nearly as flattering as mine of him.

I’m waiting for him to say something . . . anything. Like an apology or an explanation for disappearing three years ago, but instead I get something completely different.

His hands drop to the button of his jeans. “Based on your ad, the inspection isn’t quite complete.”

If my jaw could drop to the floor like a cartoon character’s, it would.

Oh. My. God. I never saw what he was packing before, only a grazing handful the one night I finally got bold, but he put me off, promising me a night that never happened.

I stand like a slack-jawed moron and force my gaze to his face.

“What are you doing?”

His wicked grin—one he uses so rarely, even in the movies of his I’ll never admit I’ve seen—wipes away the three years between our past and present.

The hiss of the zipper comes next.

I keep my gaze on his face as his eyes dare me. To look or to stop him, I’m not sure which.

“Apparently you’ve changed your requirements for wooing, baby girl.”

The endearment on his lips brings back another wave of memories, but the flex of his bicep against the sleeve of his T-shirt steals my attention.

Oh. My. God.

He’s gripping his cock, stroking it, isn’t he? All I have to do is look down, and I’ll have more than one question answered.

“You know you wanna look.”

The dare is there again. And he’s right. I want to look. So I do.

Sweet Jesus.

Oh. My. Hell.

Well, let’s just say Cav knocked that requirement out of the park. The sight of his long, thick cock in his big, capable hand sends heat rushing south through my body, pooling between my thighs. My nipples, sans bra, strain against the material of my shirt. Cav’s gaze drops as well—to my chest.

The room pulses with a desperate intensity. Hanging between us is the night we never had. The one he walked away from.

I have two choices. Take what I want, what I asked for, or hold on to the rejection he dealt me three years ago.

My brain short-circuits on one thought—life is short, and you never know if you’ll get a second chance.

So I step forward, wrap one hand around his neck and the other around his cock, and kiss him for everything I’m worth.

Review: Bad Timing by Nicky Peacock

Happy Monday!  Today I get to share with you Nicky Peacock’s latest installment in her Battle of the Undead series.  A great pick up from the last book.  You are thrown deeper into the changed world full of Undead villains and Vampire heroes.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.   You can find my review of Bad Blood, the first book in the series here. Have a wonderful week ahead!

28374181Book Blurb:

“You know now that monsters are real. Whether they have recently risen to reach for your flesh, or have chosen now to step from the shadows; you are surrounded by them. You also know that I am one too, but I’m all you’ve got and time is running out…”

There’s no rest for the wicked, especially in a zombie apocalypse. Britannia has used every vampire skill at her disposal to keep those she cares for safe, but with old enemies and unseen adversaries moving against her, she will have to push herself to both her physical and ethical limits to survive. Britannia is changing, but will it be for the better?

Please note this is the second book in a series that should be read in order.

Review:

Britannia is back.  She finds herself washed ashore and looking for willing humans.  What she finds is how the zombie apocalypse has spread to not only humans but animals also.  Though in finding this she runs into a past nemesis that she would do anything to vanquish.  Unfortunately her decisions will change her and reveal how the Zombie infection was developed.  But when all those she cares about is threatened she must do all she can to protect them and their dwindling food supply.

This was an exciting and entertaining sequel in this series.  I really saw how Britannia has changed and how she changes those around her.  We found her on her own a lot in this book.  Her loved ones were pretty sparse in this book.  There are also a lot of big revelations in this book.  Revelations that will rock Britannia to her foundation.  Though this was an exciting addition, I wished there had been more to this story than their was.  I think things could have been explored a bit more than it was.  Overall, this was a good paranormal book that will have you salivating for more.

FALLING UNDER YOU - cover

About FALLING UNDER YOU: 

Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway.

But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom.

Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Even her dominant boss, Hudson Pierce has turned down her advances, leaving her to fear that she will never find the lover she’s longing for.

Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.

It’s a bad idea…such a deliciously bad idea…but when Boyd takes the reins and leads her to sensual bliss she’s never known, the headstrong Norma can’t help but fall under his command.

EXCERPT:

After that, Boyd and I maintained the perception that Hudson desired, but everything was different. Though we still went through the routine we’d gone through for the past two years and still lived the roles we’d defined for ourselves, we’d reached a new understanding between us. We talked about our future a lot. It was our priority, and things began to change. Gwen got a place of her own, and Boyd officially gave up his apartment and moved in with me. He accompanied me to family dinners—even when Hudson was present. And little by little, I started tidying up projects at work so that I could hand them off to someone else if necessary.

Still, time went by. Thanksgiving came and went. The Monday after the four-day holiday, the annual executive Christmas party invitation arrived via intra-office mail.

“You can toss that,” I said to Boyd as he laid it on my desk.

“You aren’t planning to go? It’s at American Cut. Hudson’s rented out the entire restaurant. You love that place.”

I looked up from my computer screen. “I know. But it’s not as fun when I can’t take whom I want to take.” The year before I’d gone to the event and barely lasted an hour before I’d rushed home to Boyd and had a very different kind of party.

The corners of his mouth bent into a frown. Quietly, so no one passing by might hear, he said, “I hate that I’m the one standing in the way of you enjoying all the perks of your hard work.”

“It’s not really a perk. It’s one night. I’ll live.” But, the truth was, it was more than one night. My job required me to attend several events throughout the year. Time and time again I’d gone alone. I could ignore the looks and office gossip about my perpetually single status, but I despised not being able to share those occasions with Boyd. Sometimes I’d take him with me as my assistant, which was almost worse. At least at the office, I had work to distract me from pining for his glance or his touch. In social settings, it had gotten harder and harder not to brush my arm against his too closely, not to reach for his hand, not to behave too familiarly with him.

“Okay, then. If that’s what you want.” Boyd reached for the invitation, but I placed my hand on his wrist to stop him.

“You know what? It’s not what I want. And I’m tired of living like this.” I pushed my chair back from my desk and stood up.

Review: My Sweet Demise by Shana Vanterpool

Happy Friday!  Today will be my last scheduled review for a few weeks.  So, I have a fantastic book to begin my small hiatus.  My Sweet Demise is an angsty romance with lots of Alpha Male action.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have a great weekend and keep an eye out I will be publishing some reviews sporadically of books that have been on my TBR list.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00033]Book Blurb:

Desperation makes a girl do crazy things…

When twenty-one year old Raina O’Connor is kicked out of her room on short notice, she’s thrown into a frantic search for a new place to stay. As the situation becomes more urgent, her choices have dwindled to her least favorite option—ladies’ man, Kent Nicholson.

Kent Nicholson loves women, just not as a roommate…

When a gorgeous blonde with big hazel eyes answers Kent’s ad for a roommate, his red flags start flying. He’s looking for a wingman, not a chick who will put a damper on his game or drench his apartment in pink. It’s clear she’s in a bind, and something about her makes him break his own rules. But when he reluctantly accepts, it’s with four concrete conditions.

Be his wingman. Don’t get in his way with other girls. No bitchy attitudes. And most importantly, she can’t fall for him.

Pretty sure this was the world’s worst idea—ever…

Trust is something earned. Raina learned that the hard way when her father broke her heart as a child, making it easy to steer clear of relationships. But living with Kent somehow stirs emotions Raina has always forbidden herself to have. Plus, he’s everything she never wanted—untrustworthy, pigheaded…and gorgeous. Something tells her Kent isn’t free of his own secret scars…

Love can drag you down and spit you out, and be worth every second.!

Review:

Raina is desperate.  She is now homeless and must find a place to live.  When she finally comes across an affordable place the very handsome guy that answers the door she realizes this may not be as ideal as she thinks.  Kent agrees to let her move in with a few stipulations.  Raina agrees but when she finally has to fulfill her part of the bargain she realizes may be impossible.  As Raina and Kent fight their attraction and their pasts they must decide if they can let love in or will they let it fall out of their grasp?

I enjoyed this book.  It was full of angst and drama, but it also had a solid love story.  The story was well written with well developed and dynamic characters.  Kent, himself, is the most complex and perplexing character.  You will question why Raina really goes for him, but when his story unfolds you will be falling for him just like Raina.  Another fantastic part of this book are the ancillary characters like James, Becca and Sam.  Though you may not like some of them and they really are horrible at times they are so well written and help to propel the story.  My only complaint with this book was the ending.  It felt rushed and without the detail that throughout the book I became accustomed. Overall, this was quite an enjoyable book with very memorable characters.

Review: Fighting Mad by Kathy Bryson

Welcome to Monday!  Another week with another fantastic book.  Today I have wonderful tale with fairies, leprechauns and love.  Kathy Bryson’s Fighting Mad brings us back to the world in her previous book, Restless Spirits.  With another tale featuring faeries, the King Oberon and the Queen on the verge of war, it weaves a fantasy with reality with expert ease.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

28210463Book Blurb:

Laid off from her job at the bank, Carla turns to her friends for support only to find they’re more concerned about their jobs. The one person she can count on is local bartender Murphy, but what kind of example is that to set for her daughters? Having learned the hard way, Carla’s not depending on any man, even if he is cute, charming, very kind, and some kind of leprechaun?

Murphy is used to sneers. Clurichauns are the redheaded stepchildren of the leprechaun world and then there are the late-night throw-downs at his bar. What he wants, however, is to protect the dainty little mom who ogles him when she thinks no one’s looking. He knows she’s fighting overwhelming odds, but she’ll need more than bravery when the conflict between the King and Queen of the Fairies becomes outright civil war!

Review:

Carla has had a tough week.  After being fired from her job, she is forced to make decisions about her life that are scary.  But, not as scary as choosing to finally act on her feelings toward the very sexy barkeep.  Carla has a lot of beginnings and must find her way to push through, but when the world of the Faeries comes to almost destroy he upcoming wedding planning business she takes it upon herself to fight for everyone she loves by coming up with a way to prevent civil war between the King and Queen of the Fairies.  Will this strong mom be able to pull it off or will her world and everyone elses crumble around her?

This was a wonderful journey.  This is one novel that you won’t want to put down until your turning the final page.  Carla is an extremely relatable character.  A single mom that is worried about making poor choices that will impact her children is a character that many women can relate to.  Murphy is the sexy barkeep that any woman would love to have some couch time with.  His description truly allows the reader to know exactly why Carla stared at him for so long.  Though this is set in the same town with the same characters as Restless Spirits you do not need to read it to enjoy this book.  Kathy Bryson weaves a fantastic story. Her ability to bring the faery creatures into the real world and not make it too unbelievable is a talent that she definitely has.  I can’t wait to read what she has coming up next.

Review: The Griffin’s Secret by Cate Masters

Happy Friday!  To me it has felt like forever getting here.  Today I get to share with you a great story by Cate Masters.  This is a modern retelling of The Griffin with the added bonus of some paranormal and hot rock star mixed in.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have an awesome weekend!!

23450197Book Blurb:

Jackson Grant had it all—the girl he loved, his Harley, and his guitar. Until a tragic accident stole it all away. Now, more than scars and a tattoo remain. Jackson has a secret. Cursed by his dead girlfriend’s mother, he can never fall in love again or his beloved will die. With his heart on lockdown, he keeps to himself—until a roadie gig with Malcontent, the world’s most popular band, entwines his fate with sweet, wounded Layla’s…

Music is what Layla lives for. She has no choice. She’s bound by magic to serve Malcontent, cursed to propel them to stardom with her musical powers. Then Jackson appears and gives her hope that he’s the hero who will save her. A reluctant hero, yet one she can’t resist. But freedom will come at price—and who will pay…?

Review:

Jackson is cursed.  His curse won’t let him love again without the girl dying from his curse.  Layla has her own problems.  She is bound by magic to the lead singer in a mega band, Malcontent.  All she wants to do is break free.  When she meets Jackson she realizes with him she wants to break free even more.  Can the two of them break their curses or will they pay the ultimate price?

I really liked this story.  Its a bit shorter than a normal novel but you still get the full impact of the characters and the world they are in.  Jackson and Layla’s love story though a bit whirlwind really makes the reader swoon.  He has all the awesome power of an alpha, but the soft heart of a teddy bear.  The story is well written and  flows wonderfully well between characters.  The ebb and flow between Jackson and Layla’s points of view truly allows for a full story that without it would leave it lacking.  Cate Masters has truly made the story of The Griffin a modern tale with hot alpha male and a strong, sassy heroine.  I recommend this to anyone looking for an enchanting read.

Review: Plan Interrupted by Valerie Clarizio

Welcome to another week and another great book.  I am happy to share with you a new book by Valerie Clarizio.  This is a wonderful love story with a hint of suspense.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have a wonderful week ahead!

26986776Book Blurb:

Elizabeth Shaw’s professional life is going according to plan until she meets the handsome widower and his two young children next door. Having shelved her personal life to land her dream job, she disregards her romantic feelings for him. But the forces of nature have other ideas for her.

Joe Antonetti has made his children his main focus since the death of his wife. But his beautiful neighbor becomes an irresistible distraction and has him wondering if he can change her priorities.

Surrendering to their attraction for each other causes another player to step in with his own plan for Elizabeth. One that could not only end the budding romance but her life as well.

Review:

Elizabeth has a plan.  Her life plan is streamlined and focused solely on her career.  But, when she meets her neighbor and his children things begin to change.  What she once wanted now seems to be less important, but when the unspeakable happens and she is stalked by that person she must decide what is really important.  Should she stick the plan at all costs or just go with what life has in store for her?

I really enjoyed this book.  Elizabeth is a very strong but flawed character.  She hides behind her plan so that she doesn’t have to face the harsh world.  Unfortunately, the harshness finds her and she is forced to face things she never planned for.  Woven into this is a sweet love story.  Not just a story about a man and a woman but her love for his children also.  With the great romance and suspense expertly woven together any reader will find it difficult putting this book down until the last page is turned.  If I wasn’t already a fan of Valerie Clarizio, I would be one after reading this book.
