Jessica Lemmon is growing on me as her book three of her Billionaire Bad Boys Series, pits retired marine Eli Crane against the stubborn and beautiful Isabella Sawyer, as they work day in day out to test the sparks of attraction that seems to between them.


Loosing a part of him in the war, leaves Eli damaged mentally and physically. Having his brothers convince him to run the Crane Hotels is not up his alley yet, as he tries to find himself in setting up a foundation for injured vets. Insurmountable task, yet he can’t seem to give control to his assistants as they leave him high and dry, monster that he is!

Isabella has to make sure she keeps the Crane business to expand her contacts and get recommendations, Leaving a family and money that suffocates her, she opens her own employment agency and is a kick ass at it. And she sets herself as Eli’s assistant, a stubborn, tenacious and hard working lady against the damaged, stubborn monster of the Crane clan.

“The Bastard Billionaire” is actually my favorite of the three so far. Isabella is one tough cookie and they make a perfect partnership as they go through fears and insecurities, relationships and family dynamics. A perfect read for a romantic at heart, well written by Jessica Lemmon.

Hero – A Definite Winner!!!

Samantha Young has been on my ‘To-Be-Read’ list for the longest and finally I debuted her writing with her latest “Hero”. Beyond expectation, impressive and engrossing, that I actually read it back to back.

Alexa Holland is an executive assistant to a famous photographer, a job that is jeopardized when Caine Carraway happens to be an assignment gone wrong. With a past that left her life in lies and pain, Alexa steers off her family legacy and makes her own life. But Caine is a part of those very lies and betrayal that had left him an orphan and now is a successful and rich businessman, through sheer determination, hard work and tenacity.

Hero-SamanthaChase-Feb 2015

Fate puts Alexa in Caine’s office as his assistant and sparks flare taking them on a ride of lust and passion. A lust that frightens Caine of the consequences of it, and a passion that turns into love for Alexa. But Alexa’s past becomes a threat to her life, and Caine’s secret may drive a wedge into their romance.

Caine Carraway as the tenacious and sullen millionaire with a soft heart and empathy was a treat to unravel. As much as he wants to keep Alexa away, he is driven towards her with a passion and love beyond his soul. Alexa is just this simple and beautiful human being, who looks for the good in all, despite being estranged from her family, is positive and has a sunny disposition, and in-spite of the pain her family brought to her front door, is determined to live her life on her terms and believes in love and family.

Spunky, witty, adorable and utterly sexy, she makes life a living hell working closely with him, as Caine tries to resist her. All alpha, rude, snobby and utterly charming, Caine falls head over heels for Alexa who brings out his protective instincts and love to the fore.

Samantha Young does a fabulous job etching Caine and Alexa, building a great story that is entreating, enticing and exciting and will remain with me as one of my favorites.

“Hero” is a definite winner for me!

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

Delores Fossen’s second book in her series Sweetwater Ranch is as good and adrenaline pumping story as the first. “Cowboy Behind The Badge” offers another heady rush of suspense and thrill.

Texas Ranger Tucker McKinnon sure wasn’t looking for trouble when Laine Braddock breaks into his house and he definitely was not looking for double trouble when he sees Laine is hiding two adorable newborns in his pantry. From the time he finds Laine, Tucker is thrown into triple trouble as he tries to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the twins.

Laine Braddock, a psychiatrist, is thrown into a whirlwind of danger the minute she is thrust with the safety of the newborns and witnesses the murder of the twins’ mother. She has no other choice but get to the sanctuary of Tucker, if she wants to live to take care of the babies.


Tucker and Laine have a history together before a murder puts them on two sides of the fence. Yet as they fight together to save the babies, they discover that the spark between them was never doused and the passion kindles into a fire. A fire that they have to control to save the babies and put an end to a baby adoption farm gone the evil way.

Page after page of suspense, twists and danger is what Delores gives us in her second book in the series. Trust and support are tested, integrity and love stands trial and passion and justice wins it all. Tucker and Laine are two strong individuals and make one kick-ass couple. I liked the fact that the characters got more attention and more personality invested in them.

A sparkling five star enjoyable read!
