Made for You by Lauren Layne

Three years ago, Brynn Dalton made a rare error in judgement. She had a one-night stand with the one man she swore she’d never let into her designer panties. There were some men that good girls just didn’t sleep with. Ever. Like the man who went through women faster than an infant went through diapers and happened to be your sister’s best friend. She’d sworn him to secrecy, but Will had done her one better. He moved across the country a week after The Mistake, leaving Brynn to sweep her indiscretion under the carpet.

But Will Thatcher is back. And just in time to see Brynn’s perfectly structured life begin to crumble. Her once ideal career is boring the crap out of her, and her perfect doctor boyfriend doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to get to Tiffany’s.

More than ever, Brynn needs her childhood nemesis to keep his distance. But Will has a mission of his own, one that involves inserting himself in Brynn’s life in a very permanent way. Will’s not content to be Brynn’s dirty little secret any longer — and he’s out to show her that the imperfect man might just be the best mistake of her life.

His Every Fantasy (Sultry Summer Nights #2) by Delilah Devlin

her

The last thing ex-SEAL Sergei Gun needs is a complication. As part of a powerful black-ops company, he’s led an extraction team into the Mexican jungle to rescue two men who have been kidnapped. Everything has gone according to plan until Serge discovers a third hostage-an exquisitely beautiful woman with a secret haunting her stormy gray eyes . . . a woman who refuses to make this rescue easy. With no choice but to bring her back to the compound deep in the sultry, steamy Louisiana bayou, Serge vows to protect her, body and soul . . . 

Kara Nichols never imagined that she’d capture the interest of a powerful man like Serge. Yet from the moment they met, she’s fantasized about his strong hands caressing her naked skin, his musky scent lingering on her sheets. What began as a simple rescue mission ignites into a passionate affair. As Serge teaches her the tantalizing art of surrender, Kara finds herself more than willing to shed every last one of her inhibitions and submit to him fully. But the dark, dangerous forces that captured Kara aren’t ready to let her go so easily . . 

As always, Delilah Devlin has written a very good book.  This subject matter in this one was not my taste, and is a 10 on the spicy meter!

Sweet Girl by Cristin Harber

sweetA SWEET GIRL
Nicola Hart grew up under the heels of her older brother and his sexy best friend, Cash Garrison. Years of ignoring her spark with Cash has transformed their friendship into a slow burning sizzle. One night with him could ruin everything. Or it could be more than she ever dreamed. They play. They flirt. But they haven’t crossed the line because too much is at stake. Family. Friendship. And the deepest kind of love that she’d have to be crazy to walk away from.

HE CAN’T STAY AWAY FROM
She’s his best friend’s little sister. The definition of hands off. Cash has tried to ignore her for years. Those innocent eyes and her smile that screams kiss-me-if-you-dare… Instead, he’s looked at every pretty little thing who’s crossed his path, all to ignore the girl he seems destined to want. But when his hard partying ways get old and everyone at school is interested in Nicola, it’s time to stake a claim. To make Nicola his girl, no matter the risks, and hold the hand of the one he really loves.

Bravo!!  This book accomplished exactly what it was supposed to…..it made me go and purchase Garrison’s Creed immediately after I finished it.  It was 1:30am…

 

I loved Cash and Nic’s story.  It was believable, they had a sweet romance, you think all is going well, and then BOOM!!!  Normally, I don’t like cliffhangers, but I can’t wait to read the next book!!  Cash was swoon worthy in Sweet Girl.  I can’t imagine what he’ll be like after a decade in the military……I love men in uniform 🙂

Taming The Country Star by Margo Bond Collins

country

 

 

He’ll do anything to win her heart. She’ll do anything to keep him away.

Country star Cole Grayson is in town, and Kylie Andrews is less than thrilled. As if months of changing the radio station and tearing down his posters weren’t bad enough, now she has to deal with a town of fans swarming toward the man who deceived her the year before. But when Kylie’s eyes meet Cole’s again, she can’t deny the electric chemistry that drew her to him the first time around.

Cole Grayson is on a mission. Ever since Kylie left him, he hasn’t been able to forget her sweet country smile. After writing a song just for her, he sets off for her hometown to prove he’s not the player she thinks he is. But as much as Cole can’t forget her, Kylie wonders if she can forgive him…

Cute book!  Even though this was a short story, the characters were well thought out, and the story just worked!!  Looking forward to reading more from Ms. Collins

Hard to Hold by Incy Black

Anna Key Marshall is about to get what she’s always wanted: a baby. Granted, it’s through a sperm donor instead of her ex-husband, but you can’t have everything. She has no idea why someone wants her dead, but she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her unborn child—even if it means turning to her ex, the Black Ops specialist who broke her heart.

Five years ago, British Intelligence agent Nick Marshall slammed the door on the woman who betrayed him. But now Anna’s back in his life with a vengeance, pregnant and full of attitude. He’d like nothing better than to walk away, but with her life on the line, he has no choice but to do what he does best—protect her at all costs.

As old wounds resurface, Nick begins to doubt his version of what went down with Anna so long ago. And he begins to believe they might have a second chance together. But with Anna’s would-be killer on the loose—it will take the full force and fury of his protective instincts, fueled by a powerful love he can’t leave behind, to hold on to the woman he still loves.

Great, fun read.  I want a Nick Marshall!!

Meant To Be Mine by Becky Wade

Ty Porter has always been irresistible to Celia Park. All through high school–irresistible. When their paths cross again after college–still irresistible. This time, though, Ty seems to feel exactly the same way about Celia. Their whirlwind romance deposits them at a street-corner Las Vegas wedding chapel. 

The next morning they wake to a marriage certificate and a dose of cold reality. Celia’s ready to be Ty’s wife, but Ty’s not ready to be her husband. He’s a professional bull rider, he lives on the road, and he’s long planned to settle down with the hometown girl he’s known since childhood. 

Five and a half years pass. Celia’s buried her dreams so that she can afford to raise her daughter. Ty’s achieved all of his goals. Or thought he had, until he looks again into the eyes of the woman he couldn’t forget and into the face of the child he never knew he had.

How much will Ty sacrifice to win back Celia’s trust and prove to her that their spontaneous marriage can still become the love of a lifetime?

Great Book!  It’s a sweet, cleanly written romance!  Can’t wait to read more from this author.

While at the party, Vittorio doesn’t realize he’s not actually dancing with Birgitte.  He’s dancing with Mia.  What will he do once he realizes this deception?  How will he ever let Mia go?

I enjoyed this book my Natasha Moore.  It’s different than most of what I’ve been reading lately, and I like that.  All characters were well written and developed, and woven into the story wonderfully.  Things have been perfectly set up for more books in this series.

Fake It by Jennifer Chance

Anna got herself into a pickle!  She’s been pretending to have a boyfriend, “Dave”, for six months.  She was so tired of people constantly trying to fix her up!!  She had to do something to get everyone to leave her alone.  However, that plan sort of backfired when it came time for Kristen’s wedding.

Jake has had his eye on Anna for months.  He would watch her every day when she came home from work.  When they finally meet, she tells him about her problem.  Jake offers to stand in as “Dave” as the wedding.  Little did either one know just how REAL their relationship would be.

I really enjoyed this book by Jennifer Chance.  The story flows beautifully, and is easy to read.  With her descriptions, I could totally picture each character in my mind.  There was just enough sizzle in the romance department without being nasty or over the top.

Sandcastle Kisses by Krista Lakes

20140506-205319.jpg

When Isabel Baker agreed to moonlight as a bartender at a private party, she never imagined she’d get anything more than tips. However, on this resort island, nothing was ever that simple.

After tending bar with the deliciously handsome Noah who was flown in for the party, Izzy realized that she was about to break her number one rule: never fall for a tourist. But with his quick wit, charming smile and passion for marine life, Noah was the kind of guy that she couldn’t resist. At the end of the night, she barely managed to turn him away from coming home with her.

Noah had only come to the island for one of Jack Saunders’ famous parties. Yet once he met Izzy, he couldn’t bring himself to leave. After one steamy night together, he knew that he would do almost anything to keep her.

Theirs should have been an easy love story, complete with a happily ever after. Except Noah was also moonlighting as a bartender that night and his true identity threatened Izzy’s research. When his billion-dollar company and her marine research project collide, their entire relationship crumbles into the sand. Will they be able to rebuild their beautiful sandcastle together, or will it be washed away by the rising tide, forever just a memory?

Another great addition to this series! I can’t recommend books by Krista Lakes enough.
