“The Bridal Squad” is an extension of “ The Friday Night Brides”…both standalone, and part of “The Enchanted Bride Series. So rest assures that if you haven’t read “The Friday Night Brides”, you can still enjoy “The Bridal Squad” on its own.


Having said that, Samantha Chase braved going on a different path with this story. So if you are expecting it to be a pure and pure love story, you will be disappointed and I’m going to be honest here, you’ll either like or hate it. But if you are familiar with Samantha’s books, and if you trust her creativity, this story is a good insight into Samantha’s writing prowess, not only as a romance writer, but also as an author who has the ability to be eloquent about human relationships, emotions and experiences.

Personally I loved this story!!! Four friends, with independent lives, battling the daily upheavals of life, with a friend on the verge of marriage, as another is on the fence of getting a divorce, a sister who has been battered with multiple breakups and a wanderlust friend trying to come to terms with a steady relationship. So many dynamics thrown into this amazing mixture we call relationship, it makes this story even more interesting to read.

“The Bridal Squad” is as practical as it can be, and as real as it can get, with friends finally being open about their feelings, sharing their fears and insecurities, and having each other’s back, despite their individual personalities…..and so very relatable with your own group of friends.

“The Bridal Squad” is one daunting story that is rich in friendship, strong characterization and deeply enriched with human emotions.

The Billionaire Pierce Brothers sure know how to keep their lives super busy and interesting, and Jennifer Probst adds the needed spice and passion for her readers to fall in love with the Pierce brothers.


Book 2 of the series, “Any Time, Any Place” throws Raven Bella and Dalton Pierce together even as their parents’ past connects them, with severe consequences. Even as Raven tries to fight the attraction she feels for Dalton, her heart says otherwise. But with a past that connects them so closely, a fact that Dalton in unaware of, fate brings Dalton into Raven’s life as circumstances put him right in the middle of Raven’s bar and renovations.

Although I’m partial to the first book, “Everywhere And Every Way”, Dalton and Raven’s story has its own charm as they try to overcome the betrayal of their parents and the insecurities and fears of commitment and relationships. With doses of emotion and passion, with plenty of fears and insecurities of a normal person, “Any Time, Any Place” is another great love story by Jennifer Probst, with family dynamics, witty dialogues and fiery passion that would satisfy any reader.

The Lawmen of Silver Creek Ranch will rally together to protect their own and keep the evil out of their jurisdiction. And here’s another of Delores Fossen’s series as her simmering lawmen stand guard under the big Texas sky. From one series to another she creates romance filled with danger and suspense, captivating and spell binding stories of love, support and families.


Lucas Ryland has a lot of questions for his son’s mother. He may have saved Hailey Darrow from an accident, but her being in coma is not what he had expected, nor the fact that she’s missing from the hospital and he’s her only hope of protection. With the entire Ryland clan and the extended family in protection mode, Lucas needs to find answers fast to keep Hailey alive and dodge the bullets to even think of a future with her.

As a great computer hacker, Hailey Darrow had a good life and Lucas was her shining moment. But as conspiracies and betrayals come to light, she goes under protection but her identity is compromised. Now fighting for her life and come to terms that she had delivered a baby boy when she was in coma is hard to comprehend and the fire of passion still burns between her and Lucas.

As bullets fly, secrets come to light and family betrayals are exposed, Lucas and Hailey have to fight with their very breath to keep their son alive and not let Hailey sacrifice herself to keep her loved ones alive. With pages of action, doses of passion and family dynamics, “Lucas” is a fast paced read of suspense and tail spinning action that Delores Fossen is known for and delivers yet another thrilling ride.

The sister writer/author duo of Melanie and Shawna need no introduction. Pros at creating charming love stories that stoke the hearts of the readers; their latest release is no disappointment for sure.


Wishing Well, Texas is deserving of its name, as couples seem to be finding their wishes coming true, and finding their HEAs. And Wishing Well’s wild playboy Travis Briggs is no exception. He’s more than happy to be Mia James fake boyfriend and have that become a reality forever.

Mia James seems to have finally found her calling in directing her first reality show, a far cry from her law career. But with her ex stepping in with his pregnant lady, Mia needs to find a hot guy as her fake boyfriend and Travis fits the frame to a T!

With a no strings attached relationship, both Mia and Travis are in for the ride of their lifetime. With pockets of friends and family making their presences felt, this is a wonderful story to enjoy. Seamless as ever, you can never tell where Melanie ends and Shawna begins her story. These sisters have mastered the art of co-writing to a level that is beyond description.

As always, another love story from Melanie Shawn, “Taming Travis” is a sweet ride of a love story, heartfelt, content and just pure gratification!

Have you read an author/writer who creates characters that give you feelings of mischief, spunk, sass and humor, without even reading the full story? Well Erin Nicholas does, and it’s just not her main characters, even her secondary characters have so much depth and roots in a story, it’s hard not to be involved with them when they make an appearance.


Part of the Wild Irish Kindle World spearheaded by Mari Carr, “Wild Enough” is a Sapphire Falls crossover written by Erin Nicholas. Wild, Irish, and utterly charming, “Wild Enough” reunites Heather Wilson with her once upon a time college roommate and now a sexy Baltimore cop, Seth Dornan.

Between the sparks that ignite, between the wicked and wild banter, between the crème brulee and the steamy action under the sheets, Heather and Seth end up falling in love. Accepting is hard enough, but confessing to each other that they want all the strings attached is a whole other crème brulee of an issue.

Sweet, witty, tantalizing and spicy, “Wild Enough”, will drive you wild enough and thirsting for more and Erin’s mission is accomplished!!! Hoping to see more of Seth and Heather in her future stories.
