There’s nothing like reading a Jill Shalvis novel to make me laugh and enjoy the ride along with her sexy and sassy hero and heroine. Cedar Ridge is just so full of the Kincaid clan and infamous history, not to mention the stories they seem to make in the present.


Lily comes back to Cedar Ridge, leaving behind a successful career as a cosmetologist as she gets thrown under the bus of the rich and the famous, a blow to her job. Coming back to Cedar Ridge to assess her situation and rethink her life would have been easy if not for the memories of a past she had left behind ten years ago along with Aiden Kincaid.

Firefighter and rescue worker Aidan Kincaid is famous for leaving broken hearts in his wake, but only one gal matters to him and she is back in town to give him sleepless nights. Dormant passion ignites the hearts and sets them on a path of love and romance. But will it withstand the fears and insecurities of two people, is a chance that they both have to take to make a future.

As always, Jill Shalvis is a pro at weaving a story of humor, love and lust along with the secondary characters jumping in with their take, all in super fun dialogues and witty banter between siblings. With dialogues that make you chuckle, romance that makes us swoon and a passion that makes us root for Aidan and Lily, “Second Chance Summer” is another charming read through and through.

From “Forgotten Sins” to “Blind Faith” the Sin Brothers have taken their readers on a ride of thrill, betrayal, pain and love. Readers have hurt with them, cried for them, loved with them and endured with them. But now Rebecca Zanetti is giving the Sin Brothers the final battle of their lifetime, to save their lives, to protect the innocent and to give a life to the young soldiers created to be ruthless warriors, by an insane Commander and his entourage of evil scientists.


The final chapter of their lives finally unites them with their youngest brother Jory Dean. Enhanced, built like a giant, strong as a bull and as human as he can be, Shane had endured torture beyond imagination, yet the insane drive to be alive and with his brothers brings him back from a coma, and to Piper Oliver.

Piper Oliver, the lost and found daughter of the evil Commander is brought in to save Jory from being detonated into pieces. Ultra smart, computer whiz and a master hacker, Piper is not sure who to trust. But as the secrets of the compound come to light, so does her feelings for Jory and the immense desire to save him at any cost.

As they escape the compound and try to outwit the evil forces, Jory and Piper cannot escape the intense desire that sparks between them nor can they resist the lust that consumes them into total surrender with each other. Having to trust each other to save their lives, Jory needs to believe in Piper that she can hack his chip and Piper needs to trust her heart with Jory hoping for a future that is fast getting close to detonation.

Rebecca Zanetti the superlative writer that she is gives a brilliant ending to her Sin Brothers Series with her final story “Total Surrender”, as she brings together all the brothers, finally with the hope of having a future with their partners. Pages of adrenaline, lines of danger and words with passion takes the readers on a fascinating ride of genetically engineered human soldiers with feelings and the thirst to live a normal life.

This series will go down on my list as one of my favorite-to-go to and I will miss these alpha protective brothers immensely. Exciting, arousing and intoxicating, each book can be read as a stand-alone.

Windfall Island seems to get more and more dangerous with secrets lurking in the dark, as evil and greed want to get its hands on them. The third book in Anna Sullivan’s Windfall Series, “Secret Harbor” may very well bring into centuries old secret that can rock the town and change the lives of Paige Walker and her friends.

For the uninitiated readers, though the basic premise of finding the missing Eugenia Stanhope continues, each book in the series is a standalone with no cliffhangers, but you cannot resist going back to reading the other books in the series filled with thrills, danger and passion.


Paige Walker comes back home to Windfall to recover from a scandal that had rocked her Hollywood career and with her having no part in it, she wants to fall back and think about her future. She comes back to the sanctuary of her childhood home and best friends giving her unconditional support and love. All, except the rich, handsome and arrogant attorney Alec Barclay.

Alec Barclay is attracted to Paige at a basic level and he is not a happy camper with his feelings for her all over the place. He becomes judgmental, arrogant and hurtful before he realizes to make amends to Paige. Drawn into the search for the elusive Eugenia Stanhope, he ends up staying with Paige to protect her from danger.

As the search continues with the possibility that Paige may be the missing Eugenia, and with the flames of danger surrounding them, Alec and Paige become victims to the desire and passion that fans their hearts. But, before they can confess their love for each other, both have a lot of pain and insecurities to overcome.

Anna Sullivan does a fabulous job with Paige and Alec, two people meant to be together, but fighting every step of the way. The dialogue between them is witty, yet hurtful. Alec can be a jerk, but then he tames into a guy so in love with Paige he’s willing to accept his mistakes and grovel at her feet. And Paige with her heart so simple and kind, and a victim of Hollywood gossip, makes your heart ache for her as she gets judged by people especially Alec.

“Secret Harbor” takes you on a ride of passion and love, greed and evil, family and support in the beautiful Windfall Island and will the elusive Eugenia Stanhope come into light is for the readers to find out.

Rachel Lacey’s second book, “For Keeps” in her Love To Rescue Series keeps you captivated, charmed and amused.

Merry Joy Atwater is one firecracker of a woman who would do anything for the love of animals. Working as a full time nurse, and trying to keep her Triangular Boxer Rescue afloat is no easy task, especially when that bank balance is nada. But Merry is tenacious and is ready to take on the job of a dog trainer at Camp Blue Sky, for the summer, even though the sexy cowboy vet T.J. Jameson is running it.


All T.J Jameson wants is for his autistic nephew and other kids with special needs to get some animal therapy. What he doesn’t anticipate is a spitfire of a woman named Merry to come bouncing into his life with her dogs and making an impact on his life. All he wanted was his nephew to be happy and he ends with fostering a dog that he never even wanted in the first place, considering his frightening experience with dogs

Merry is not into long-term relationships, and T.J is looking for a nice and quiet woman to be his wife. T.J wants an organized life and Merry is just merry and rambunctious. Working on the camp, T.J realizes that Merry is more than what she seems to be. Behind all her hard work and love for children and animals is a lifelong of pain and loss that she burdens her heart. And Merry falls in love with the gentle and loving TJ, as she works with him everyday.

“For Keeps” doesn’t disappoint at all, as it takes Merry and T.J on a roller coaster ride of unpredictable love and pain. Rachel Lacey does another fine job of characterizing Merry and TJ, with layers to their relationship. A simple love story with enough love, laughter, tears and happiness to make it an enchanting read. And it’s wonderful to visit with Cara, and Olivia sure made her mark.

“For Keeps” is definitely for keeps!!!!

Wild child Chloe Thompson! The running-away-from-settling-down-in-one-place Chloe Thompson!! The one-who-can’t-put-roots-in-one-place Chloe Thompson!!! Pregnant, temperamental, hormonal, weepy, pissed off at her sexy and handsome husband Sawyer Bennett, Chloe Thompson is putting every one of her family and friends in the firing range of her protective husband.


Can Christmas at Lucky Harbor get any more exciting with a storm raging outside, Chloe all set to deliver the little “Bean”, and Sawyer may very well miss all the action and endure Chloe’s wrath. Chloe defies Sawyer and emotional blackmails into going to the Christmas party to be among her family and friends, a poor substitute for Sawyer who’s away on one final mission.

It’s a beautiful story of a woman finding her peace among her well-wishers. It’s a magical story of two wonderful people, having gone through so much turmoil and upheaval in their past, and they are finally putting roots in one place with each other. And it’s an emotional beginning to a beautiful future, as Chloe and Sawyer give birth to a baby, welcoming the ups and downs, keeping each other on their toes, surprising and unpredictable, but so much in love with each other, it brings tears to your eyes.

A short and a perfect story, beside a fireplace with hot chocolate in hand, and Christmas lights twinkling and carols in the background, Jill Shalvis takes us on a visit with the hot and sexy alphas of Lucky Harbor along with the sassy and gorgeous partners on their arms, and the town of Lucky Harbor welcoming the new addition, adding beauty to it’s landscape…a perfect update for Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr!!! A fitting end to an outstanding series!!!!
