Review: Dear Jane by Kendall Ryan

I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.

She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.

But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.

***
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?

But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.

News flash, buddy: I am over you.

Review:

Jane has grown up around football.  She now is an assistant manager to the professional team her father manages.  When her father pays her a visit she doesn’t expect him to tell her he just acquired the best quarterback in the league.  He also happens to be her ex-boyfriend who broke her heart.  She knows she is over him.  When she sees him for the first time in over a decade her resolve is tested.  She knows that they must learn to have a working relationship.  As they become closer and the truth of their end is finally brought out will a second chance between them really work or will Jane lose her heart again?

This was a great second chance sports romance.  Jane and Wes are a sexy and fun couple.  Their history along with their sexual tension drives this book to many sexy times.  It’s the leading up to their real reunion that will drive the reader crazy.  Their banter and sexual tension really steams up the pages.  This is a great book for anyone looking for a sweet and sexy romance.  Wes really redeems himself and Jane opens herself back up to love with him.  If you are looking for a great read with sexual tension and sexy football players, then look no further than Kendall Ryan’s newest book.

Review: Best Served Cold by Emma Hart

Today I get to bring to you the newest Emma Hart book.  Her fantastic wit and storytelling shines through in this newest rom-com.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.  Believe me, you will want to know more.

Book Blurb:

40499397Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Which is a real problem when the attraction runs red-hot.

Ice-cream store owner Raelynn Fortune has everything but her last name—fortune.

Despite living in a Floridian hotspot for tourists, she just can’t get her business back off the ground. And she knows why.

Her rival store next door is run by nobody other than her ex, and with his fancy-schmancy concoctions, he’s taking all the clients two generations of her family cultivated. Never mind that Raelynn taught him all he knows, and his revenge for her breaking up with him was putting her plans into reality—and her almost out of business.

But, she has a plan. The height of the season is just two weeks away, and she’s tired of playing second fiddle to her ex. She’s going to take back her crown as the queen of ice cream, even if it means getting close to Chase once again.

After all, all is fair in love and war, and you know what they say about keeping your enemies close…

Although maybe Chase is a little too close…

Review:

Raelynn loves her ice cream shop.  She had dreams and aspirations to really make it into something special.  That was until her ex-boyfriend stole her dreams and made them his own by setting up a rival ice cream shop right next door to her.  After two years, Raelynn still avoids Chase at all costs.  The time has finally come to obliterate her enemy…namely Chase.  What Raelynn really thinks he’s doing is something quite different to reality.  Can Raelynn move past her need for revenge and find her way back to happiness even if it is with the last person she ever wanted to see again?

I loved this book.  Raelynn and Chase are incredibly entertaining.  Their banter is hilarious and very relatable.  This is a very sweet and funny story. I loved the premise.  The rival ice cream shops run by ex lovers.  Raelynn is headstrong and opinionated, while Chase is stubborn and quite misguided at times.  Throughout the story you feel the emotions the characters feel for each other.  Emma Hart has quite the unique talent of writing strong characters, engaging stories and memorable dialogue that will have you laughing long after the book is finished.  If you are looking for your next rom-com love story, look no further.  You can’t go wrong by picking up this Emma Hart book.

When her safety is threatened, I have a second chance to do the right thing. But as soon as she moves in, I want her in all the wrong ways.

But neither of us saw what was coming.
And it just might be Nikki Walters who destroys me in the end.
The highly anticipated sexy, suspenseful stand-alone second-chance romance from NYT Bestselling Author, A.L. Jackson.

Review:

 Nikki has been in love with Ollie for years.  Ever since his sister went missing nothing has ever been the same for them.  Nikki has all but given up.  Her heart broken from their time together the year before.   But, when Nikki is threatened, Ollie feels he needs to protect her.  His love for her has never ended.  Can the two of them finally let go of the past and have a future together?  Or will the unforeseen danger rip them apart forever?
I have been looking forward Nikki and Ollie’s story since I started this series.  This is probably the best of the three books.  The emotion and depth of feeling between these two characters is palpable as the story unfolds.  It is both heartbreaking and hopeful.  I loved Nikki and Ollie.  We got to see so much more of them then we did in previous books.  We get to see more of our favorite heroes and their women that made them the great men they became.  This story will take the readers on such a roller coaster ride.  We finally get some answers that are terribly heartbreaking.  It is how Nikki and Ollie deal with this challenge that makes the book so wonderful.  If you haven’t read an A.L Jackson book yet, you need to pick up this series.  I guarantee you will fall in love with the writing, story and characters of all three books.  This is a wonderful addition to this series.  I hope this isn’t the end for these characters.  After reading this book, I had a major book hangover and truly can’t wait for the next book A.L Jackson writes.

Review: Lost Love by Kelly Elliott

 

love amazon

Moving back home to my parents’ cattle ranch in Texas was the last thing I thought I’d be doing.

But, here I stand … in front of my high school girlfriend. A beautiful, confident woman has replaced the young girl I once knew and loved. Hell. I’m still in love with her.

Yep. Paxton Monroe was my first love and the one girl in town who now hated my guts. So much so, Paxton swore her revenge on me if it took her until the day she died. The last words she spoke to me were a vow to cut my dick off and shove it down my throat.

The fight between my heart, my head, and last, but certainly not least, my dick starts tonight. Because all I can think about is how I want to be buried so deep inside Paxton she won’t remember how I broke her heart, or how I left her when she needed me the most.

But who will win? My heart is too broken to listen to my head. And my dick, yeah it’s not listening to anything or anyone. Not until it gets what it wants and what it wants is Paxton Monroe.

Lost Love is book one in the Cowboys and Angels Series

Review:

Steed has found himself home again after being away for ten years.  He’s avoided it because of why he left.  What he doesn’t expect is to step into his daughter’s Kindergarten class and find the one person he’s been avoiding, Paxton.  She is the one person who despises him but when he sees her he can’t help all the feelings that come flooding back.  Paxton can’t believe Steed is standing in her classroom with his daughter.  She is both happy and angry.  Steed is determined to get back the one woman he betrayed.  Paxton is determined to keep Steed away from her shattered heart.  Can these two find their way back together?  Will the past dictate the future?

This book gave me all the swoonies.  It is both sigh worthy and steamy.  Steed is the ultimate leading man.  He loves his lady even when they are far apart and he is determined to win her back even after his horrible betrayal.  Steed and Paxton are the ultimate second chance love story.  It isn’t just Steed and Paxton to make this book great.  The secondary characters of his brothers, sister and Paxton’s best friend bring just the right amount of comedy to even out the heartbreak, love and sexiness.  I would definitely recommend this book for anyone looking to be swooning days later about Steed and his brothers.

Excerpt:

“Whatcha doing?”
I nearly jumped out of my skin as I spun around and clutched at my chest.
“Jesus, Amelia! Why would you sneak up on me like that?”
She tried to hide her smile and failed. Lifting her brows, she glanced past my shoulder. “Were you watching Steed and Chloe?”
My cheeks heated. “What? No! Are they here? I haven’t seen them. Why would you say that?”
When her eyes moved back to mine, I knew she saw right through my blunder of lies. “Uh-huh. I know I was little when you and Steed dated, so we really don’t know each other all that well.” She smiled. “But I can already tell you’re a terrible liar, Paxton.”
I dropped my head then peeked up at her. “I wasn’t spying.”
Amelia held up her hands. “I didn’t say you were.”
Chewing on my lip, I sighed. “Okay. I was spying. I’m lost, Amelia.”
With a soft sympathetic grin, she glanced at her brother. “So is he, Paxton. His eyes are so sad. Earlier this morning we all had breakfast together as a family and both Mom and I noticed it.”
“The family was all together?” I asked.
She nodded with a grin. “The boys have been working the ranch the last two days so they’re all staying at the house. It’s been nice having Steed home again. Dad’s thrilled he’s back and digging deeper into the business side of the ranch. The idea of having another son run day-to-day operations has him all kinds of happy.”
Guilt hit me square in the chest. It was my fault he left. I told him to leave.
He left his family and stayed away because of me.
“I’m so sorry he left town,” I said.
“Paxton, you didn’t keep him away all those years. That was his decision. A poor one, but his nonetheless.”
I shrugged. Turning, I glanced back at Steed and Chloe. “He’s such a good father.”
The sadness in my voice caused Amelia to put her hand on my shoulder and gave it a squeeze.

Review: The Clover Chapel by Devney Perry

Today we have the blog tour for The Clover Chapel by Devney Perry! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!!

Title: The Clover Chapel

Author: Devney Perry

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About The Clover Chapel:

She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.

After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.

Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

Review: 

Emmy has done one crazy thing in her life.  In one night in Vegas,  she became a wife and an abandoned wife all in one night.  Fast forward nine years and Emmy is a new teacher on her own.  What she doesn’t expect is to see her husband, Nick.  The one that left her so many years ago.  As they try to repair the broken relationship and truly get to know each other, strange break ins keep happening to Emmy.  Can Emmy and Nick work out the last nine years or will forgiveness elude them?

I love this second chance romance.  Emmy and Nick were great characters.  The story was unique and very fun at times.  The story was intricate and intriguing.  I did find it a bit long and more complicated than I think it needed to be.  The romance/second chance portion was practically resolved a quarter of the way through.  There were other plot points that moved the story along but it felt like they weren’t intrical to the plot.  Overall, it was a well written book that was both entertaining and interesting.  I would definitely read another book by Devney Perry
