A great start to another awesome series by Marina Adair, “It Started With A Kiss” has all the ingredients to touch your heart with it’s emotional and wonderful set up in a rustic Sierra Nevada town, a town full of loving people, supporting and caring for each other in sickness and health. And a town that Avery Adams is dreaming of making it a home and fill it with adventures as fate gives her a second chance at life.
The world is a home for Tyson Donavon, as he lives his life rescuing people on the treacherous terrains and coming back home was never on his risky plan. But an ailing father and a failing family adventure’s lodge that is his father’s life, brings him home. What was supposed to be a short and temporary help seems to become more of a permanent fixture as fate throws Avery into his path.
The chemistry between Avery And Tyson is an amazing blend of charisma and love as they get to know each other, her patience and tenacity softens his heart, Tyson’s adventure for life gives Avery a chance to fulfill her bucket list, and slowly making a life together seems to be an adventure that these two are willing to risk.
Marina Adair is another of those wonderful writers who pays great attention to detail, keeping the narration emotional and poignant that makes you laugh, cry and scream as you are reading the story. Avery was just an amazing character and all kudos goes to Marina for creating a perfectly imperfect heroine.
And “It All Started With A Kiss”!

Book three of the BOSS INC Series; “Into The Firestorm” is my favorite of the series so far. Mr. Bounty Hunter, Luke Brodie meets Ms. Bounty Hunter, Emma Cassidy.
Two fiery individuals, brought together by a common evil, Luke and Brodie work together to bring justice to the victims. A bit more edgy, a tad scary and a lot more sizzle and passion, Luke and Emma go one hell of a ride to catch Rudy Vance before he can destroy another girl’s life and the only way to get Emma’s family back together.
Luke Brodie is one of Kat Martin’s brilliant characters with his deadly hunting skills as well as loving skills. With a dangerous mob gunning for Emma and with the fear of losing his heart to her, Luke would become a monster in his wake to keep Emma safe.
Emma Cassidy’s only motivation in becoming a bounty hunter is to get rid of evil like Rudy Vance who destroyed her family. Having Luke as a partner is a godsend as well as a bullet to her heart. Matching step to step with Luke, and holding her own against any threat, Emma will sacrifice everything to bring her family together.
With the Brodies and inmates of BOSS Inc. making appearances, and with secondary characters giving sustenance to the story, Kat Martin weaves another dazzling romantic suspense that enthralls the readers in her latest, “Into The Firestorm”.

I’ve read Anne McAllister before and she writes some nice and charming love stories no doubt. “The Cowboy And The Kid” is actually one of her better works than others.
Written from the point of view of a 7 year old, interwoven between Jones Taggert and Felicity Albright, “The Cowboy And The Kid” is really a charming love story as Becky tries to set her rodeo cowboy Dad with her teacher. Becky wants a mother and who better than her favorite and pretty teacher.
Taggert and Felicity try to resist each other against all odds as people throw them into each other’s paths. Between teaching Felicity bull riding and she warming her way into his heart with her kindness, resilience and persistence, it’s not too long before these two fall for each other and make one kid damn happy.
Anne McAllister did a pretty good job with this story and I actually enjoyed reading it. Taggert and Felicity did take their own sweet time getting together, but the narration kept it interesting along with the supporting characters and a glimpse into the world of bull riding.

Rachel Lacey, since her first book, has been one of my feel-good-go-to authors that I adore and love reading. Her new series, “Risking It All” had a rocking start with a short story “Rock With You” (Carly and Sam’s love story), and the actual series started off in the little town of Haven with “Run To You” and now the latest coming in March 2017, “Crazy For You” will have Emma Rush riding the wild side of Ryan Blake.
Her last name may be Rush, but she is one good girl that everyone wants to be friends with. But Emma Rush wants to shake things up, and who better than to Ryan Blake to take her on the wild side of Haven. With the dreams of getting the degree that she never had a chance to do, and owning her own landscaping business, Emma wants to have a few wild days before she leaves Haven. Her attraction to Ryan only sparks her friends to dare Emma into having a fling with him.
Ryan Blake always had Emma in his heart since he arrived in Haven, and Emma’s persistence to have an affair with no strings attached only spurs his attraction and want to be the person to explore the wild side with her. Teaching her rock climbing, spending time with her, being supportive of her getting a tattoo, only deepens his feelings for her and scares the hell out of him.
But then this is the wild ride of love, and these two people crazy for each other have to figure out their deeper fears to have their happy ending. What I like about Rachel Lacey’s writing is her ability to be so eloquent with feelings and situations. The appearance of Ryan’s brother is as surprising and perfect as is his closure with Emma’s brother and his promise to take care of her. The placing of supportive characters, the banter and chemistry among the friends and the resident so Haven is a perfect blend of romance and pleasure to read, “Crazy For You”.
