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 now the actual series starts off in the little town of Haven with “Run To You”.

As an Olympic gold medalist Ethan Hunter may have lived a celebrated life, but his soul and life belongs in his hometown of Haven. Starting “Off-The-Grid-Adventures” with his childhood friends Mark and Ryan and to make a success of it is his goal now, and of course taking care of his grandmother Dixie is on the top of his list. Saving a beautiful angel from a hornet of yellow jackets was definitely not on his agenda nor is the first stirrings of attraction in his heart.

RunToYou-RiskingItAll#1-Aug2016

Gabby Winters stay in Haven is supposed to be a little slice of heaven and a safe haven to take charge of her life and rediscover herself. Getting swarmed by yellow jackets and landing on her ass in the lake, and getting rescued by a hottie was not even part of her wildest dreams. Yet here she was, not only being rescued by Ethan Hunter, but ends up being in the charade of dating him to make his ailing grandmother happy.

Gabby is one of the most helpful and kind women that we come across, and Ethan as the doting grandson and a boyfriend is the kind of guy you want on your side. Rachel Lacey does a brilliant job of creating these two characters with so much care and love, you can’t but help falling in love with these two, as they struggle to overcome their fears and insecurities, pain and loss, separation and heartache.

With a barrage of helpful Haven citizens, supporting friends, and magical touch adding that extra oomph and charm “Run To You” is a great beginning to Rachel’s new series. The extra attention to details and the very small touches of warmth, self talks and thoughts spanning the pages, this is one love story you want to have a happy ending.

I’ve been reading a lot of new series by some of my favorite writers and here’s one from Marina Adair’s basket of romance. Destiny Bay Series starts off with it’s first, “Last Kiss Of Summer” as it brings Kennedy Sinclair to its charm and warmth, far away from home, to start fresh as the owner for a bakery called Sweetie Pies, and lay some roots to call a home.

And the resident Mr. Hotness, Luke Callahan wants to take his cider business and Penalty Box to the next level with his partner, and he needs Kennedy’s apples that she ends up owning along with the Pie shop. And the fact that it was sold to Kennedy by his mother and aunt without his knowledge doesn’t sit well with him. Achieving his dream has just become a bit more deliciously complicated with Kennedy in the equation.

Amidst all the activity of Pie competitions, apple picking, and residents trying to decide whether Kennedy can become Destiny Bay’s new resident, Luke and Kennedy succumb to the attraction that sparked between them and status of his cider business may change the love equation between these two.

Another great start to the series, “Last Kiss Of Summer” makes you chuckle, ties up your heart in strings, makes you fall in love with the wonderful residents and their quirkiness, and gives you a feeling of belonging to a family. Marina Adair did a super fine job penning Luke and Kennedy with their human fears and insecurities as they figure out if they can have their happy ending.

I’ve followed Rachel Lacey since her first book and have never looked back. She’s one of my feel-good-go-to authors that I adore and love reading. And she’s all set to rock with her new series “Risking It All” and taking the lead in this series is “Rock With You”, a short story setting the series in motion.

RockWithYou-RiskingItAllShortStory-RachelLacey-Aug2016

Sweet as sugar Carly Taylor meets sexy as sin rock star Sam Weiss!

Sam Weiss is relegated to the tiny town of Haven, NC to escape unwarranted media attention to the mess in his personal life and work on an album that would bring him back to his rock star status. Not an easy task considering he’s missing his mojo and ends up in A Piece Of Cake.

Carly Taylor is a big fan of Sam Weiss and seeing him standing in her bakery doesn’t do any good to her libido. Circumstances put them under one roof leading them to explore the spark of attraction. But different worlds separate them, and Carly has made up her mind to cherish the sweet moments in her heart for forever and Sam is ready to take on the world again as the rock star.

But can the sexy rock star stay away from his crazy beautiful?

As addictive as Carly’s cinnamon rolls, “Rock With You” is a short and sweet start to Rachel Lacey’s new series. With likable characters and good narration, it is a quick and warm read that definitely will bring a smile to the lips and warmth to the heart.

Oh My Gosh!!!! How I missed reading Jill Shalvis and her humorous stories of love and passion, wit and humor, with alpha males and sassy heroines burning the pages of the book and wanting Cedar Ridge, the place to be in for her readers.

I love Jill Shalvis for the simple fact of narrating stories with realistic endeavor, so down to earth and her sense of wit in even in serious situations is just priceless. Hudson Kincaid and Bailey Moore are just that – kind, loving and every readers dream!

MyKindOfWonderful-CedarRidge2-JillShalvis-Dec2015

Bailey Moore has seen the world at the happiest pinnacle and experienced the pain of almost losing everything. But now she’s back on rebuilding her life one moment a time and helping create a mural for the Cedar Ridge Resort is one more step towards fulfilling her desires. Meeting Hudson and falling in love was never on her list.

Hudson Kincaid has seen his share of pain of loss, yet thrives on running the ski patrol of his family resort and rescuing people in danger. He lives on the edge yet meeting Bailey really shows him what the dangerous edge can be. He falls for Bailey and his kind of love is once in a lifetime of wonderful.

A wonderful story of courage and support, family and friends, love and romance, fear and insecurities, and emotions galore, “My Kind Of Wonderful” is a heartwarming story as Hudson and Bailey brave fears and uncertainties to be together.

I’ve been reading some really sweet and emotional love stories that cut right to the heart with their witty dialogues, intense passion, emotional past that molds the characters and an ending that sends tingles of happiness all the way to the tip of the toes!

Rachel Lacey’s third book, “Ever After” in her Love To Rescue Series is one of them that had me rooting for Olivia Bennett as she turns from spunky to caring to emotional to a lover with the hot and sexy soon to be detective Pete Sampson.

EverAfter-LoveToTheRescue3-RachelLacey-Aug2015

Spending her 29th birthday in jail was definitely not in the cards for Olivia Bennett but then falling into the hands of Pete Sampson wasn’t either, yet her stint in jail brings her closer to Pete Sampson, and Pete can’t seem to stay away from the naughty and sassy Olivia anymore than she can.

But with politics and outside forces keeping them in parallel lines, Pete gives himself to temptation and when Olivia’s life is in danger, he would definitely risk his career for his future. Olivia as the caring and animal activist is just too fab a woman not to fall in love with, and her adventures sure gives Pete sleepless nights. And Pete has his own nightmare of a history that keeps him wary of entanglements and relationships.

“Ever After” is an emotional read as Olivia tries to find herself in the big bad world. Rachel Lacey, amazing writer she is keeps the readers entertained with her humor and sass, she keeps us attached with her emotional narration and keeps us warm with the sizzling passion between Olivia and Pete. Simple story with enough forgiveness, charm and love to keep us readers glued to the last page…Ever After is a definite ever after love story.
