MacArthur sibling #2, Brodie MacArthur has a lot of groveling to do with Patience with patience! Getting off on the wrong foot with the temporary nanny for his client’s son was not what he had intended. But then, men are known to do stupid things when encountered with the love of their lives.

Helping a friend take care of his son as a temporary nanny was not Patience’s original plan for her summer, away from her kindergarten kids. And neither was the spark of attraction for the head of security. But in the world of love, plans go awry and heart takes precedence. And to navigate the ups and downs of this road require Brodie and Patience to be on the same page, and make sure the danger lurking in the shadows is eliminated as well.

This light and quick read from Katie Reus is perfect for the romantic at heart.

It’s been a while since I read Marina Adair, and what a treat it was as I get to know the Hopeless Romantics of Rome, Rhode Island. 

The first few pages are a witty opening to a story so simple, yet so rich in emotions that brought tears to my eyes a couple of times. Rhodes’s is all set to explore the un-chartered territory of love and Hayes is trying to find herself in the busy and hustle of her dysfunctional yet, lovable family dynamics. You throw in cock-busting Gregory to the equation and you’ve got yourself a rib tickling love story!

Book two of her “When In Rome” series is a definite winner from Marina Adair…the camaraderie among friends is priceless, the unconditional love for your family at the center of this story is pure sentiment and the chemistry between Hayes and Rhodes is the right spark to make “Hopeless Romantic” hopelessly adorable and endearing

Rachel Lacey’s “Midnight In Manhattan” Series seems to conclude with Piper Sheridan and Chloe Carson whispering to each other – “Come Away With Me”, to a future that looks promising.

But with like any other couple, Piper has past trauma and fears to relinquish and Chloe has insecurities and uncertainties to be overcome before they can actually plan a future. Despite everything, they have enough love between them to dream of a future together. With a great group of friends and family supporting, it’s just a matter of time to make their love story a reality.

Simple human beings, strong characters, and a complex love story is what makes “Come Away With Me”, another incredible read from Rachel Lacey.

And can I again say – what a luscious cover! The entire series is just as stunning as the book covers!!

“There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul” ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

With ever step he took, he felt as if this time….this time would be different. This time he would definitely find her.

Nothing was going to stop her from making this date. She told herself he would be there.

Liam Stryker and Aubrey Starr….

They had forged a bond within the dark walls of pain and betrayal. They endured torture and treachery with great fortitude. And both made it their life mission to save innocents from being lost to the evil that permeates society. Mercilessly. Relentlessly. 

Two determined souls destined to be together.

Second in her Option Zero series, “Relentless” is a masterpiece of writing and narration. Christy Reece poured her heart and soul into Liam and Aubrey as she goes on this journey with them; a journey of finding each other, knowing each other and living for each other. Love is a very powerful emotion. It comes in different shapes and sizes. It’s about fate, failure, timing  and redemption. And when the time comes, these two courageous souls will have their day.

If Liam and Aubrey grace one end of the spectrum of her plot, Christy Reece’s design of a massive hive of powerful people trying to play God is another brilliant twist on the opposing end of the spectrum. A plot that most likely will be entwined into her consecutive stories and there is no dearth of imagination in her to create another brilliant and edgy story.

“Relentless” is a story of bravery and resilience, brotherhood and camaraderie, fate and destiny. It is also a tale of love and hope that solidifies the fact that when bad things happen to good people (and they do happen all the time), they can come out on the other side with grit and tenacity molding into a character of beauty.

I have to thank Jennifer Ryan, (one of my favorite authors), for recommending Jay Crownover with the second book “Unforgiven”. I was hooked and ended up reading “Unforgiven” and “Justified” in one sitting, and pre-ordered “Blacklisted” in the same stretch!

I loved the Lawtons as it is, but the tiny peak of Palmer “Shot” Caldwell had me waiting in anticipation to get to know him and the quite, yet resilient Dr. Presley Baskin. And I am not disappointed at all!! In fact I loved this story even more than the other two. “Blacklisted” by others he may be, misjudged and prejudiced by the public he may be, but all that matters is what’s in your heart, and the love and care of the select few you can trust your life with. Palmer Caldwell has a soul and kindness in abundance hiding underneath that tough exterior.

Palmer has the lovely Presley in his corner, and he never would have thought that his heart would actually beat with love for a woman. There is so much depth and emotion in this relationship, and Jay did a stupendous job creating these characters with so much thought and layers. 

It’s a wonderful, wonderful book not to be missed. And now Jay Crownover is on my top list of authors to watch out for.
