Tough on the outside, with a heart as big as Wyoming. Protective to the core, with justice and fairness running in blood. And when the tough have to wage a battle with love, heart and soul takes to the knees.

Meet the oldest of the Wilde brothers, Hunt Wilde. A lawman to the core and serving justice with fairness, his heart beats for Cyn Wilson, as wild as Wyoming. 

Vibrant as the colof of her hair, salon owner Cyn Wilson lives life to the fullest, with a heart of gold and ever helpful to her townspeople, and her heart skips a beat every time Hunt crosses her path.

When Cyn’s sister and her niece disappear, Cyn turns to Hunt for help. A traumatic situation that brings Cyn and Hunt together working alongside, as they explore the attraction between them. A trauma that cements their relationship as well as the love and trust they have with each other. 

As always, Jennifer Ryan with her exceptional writing and narrative skills, threads a story of love and family, no holds barred. I loved the parallel story line with Cyn’s sister that actually develops the relationship between Cyn and Hunt, cementing their intimacy and commitment to each other. Supporting family characters, the humorous innuendos and witty conversations, add charm and chemistry to the story.

Disclaimer: The story revolves around domestic abuse which may be a trigger.

Imperfections are what make us humans. No matter how far wrong we have gone, we can always turn around. Takes lot of courage, non-judgemental support and unconditional love to follow this path, and finding forgiveness from the places we hurt is the ultimate in redemption. 

Meet Chase Wilde. A warrior at heart, but fighting demons of the unthinkable. With stilted family dynamics, and trying to make a fresh start, he’s at the crossroads of his life. His saving grace is his adorable daughter and the mother of his child, Shelby Payne

Hardworking and a loving mother and with her heart belonging to Chase Wilde since she was a teenager, Shelby Payne is the ultimate crusader for Chase, supporting his struggles, and helping him chase his demons. With a troubled past of her own, yet with courage, she creates an intelligent and remarkable opportunity for Chase to come home – to a home, a family, and a chance to make a life of his own.

Both Shelby and Chase may be in love with each other, but they have shadows of evil dogging their backs and they need to put them to rest before they can become a family. Then and only then “Chase Wilde Comes Home”, truly and forever.

Jennifer Ryan always had an exceptional writing and narrative skill and no review will do justice to any of her books unless read in person. Her narrative always makes me emotional, be it a situation between a father and son, siblings or between lovers. They are poignant, realistic and so very true to the circumstances in the plot.  

She has set precedence to another intense series as the Wyoming Wildes take the readers on an exhilarating ride!!!

I rarely read Beverly Barton (not by choice mind you), and the handful that I’ve read have been very impressive. Her latest release, “I’ll Be Watching You”, is another brilliant thriller with a combination of passion, evil and suspense.

Reed Conway returns to Spring Creek, AL on parole, after being imprisoned for the murder of his stepfather. His main goal is to stay out of trouble and try to find the real killer to prove his innocence. Prison life had turned Reed into a strong and fearless guy, breathing nothing but getting exonerated.

I'llBeWatchingYou-BeverlyBarton-Oct2014

Ella Porter is the Spring Creek Court Judge, tormented by a stalker. The adopted daughter of Senator Webb Porter and his wife Carolyn, she is the princess of her father’s eye. Always one to bend backwards to put others needs in front of her; she is the dutiful daughter who crosses the line by falling in love with white trash. Yet, she rebelliously sticks to her guts, at the same time ensuring that her father is aware of her love and her place.

Reed and Ella come together as the flare of passion ignites into flames, and a killer is on the loose wanting to send Reed back into prison. Ella believes in Reed’s innocence, and convinces her father to reopen the murder case from fifteen years ago. As they try to get to the bottom of the mystery, someone is hell bent on keeping the past secrets from been revealed and take them to the grave.

“I’ll Be Watching You” is just not a thriller. It is a brilliant narration of relationships explored and circumstances that make people act on them. It takes you on a journey with people who have become victims to love and obsession, secrets buried deep in a tight knit community where money and power take precedence, retribution and unrequited love. It also explores the dynamics of families as the members struggle to cope with the reality of the family connections, misplaced loyalties and support, lust and passion, revenge and sickness.

Beverly Barton does a fine job of keeping the suspense going in every page as she narrates the story through the main players, and keeps the interest going trying to deduce the killer.
