The very first few pages of “New Your Actually” give an insight into the writing prowess of Sarah Morgan. It is pure genius and truly orgasmic, setting the tone for New York’s most famous advice columnist Molly and the crusader of the underdogs, hiding behind a façade of cynical lawyer Daniel and their love story in the Big Apple.

Hiding away from the public after a nasty past, Molly is content with doling advise in cyber space, but how can she resist Daniel and his rented dog Brutus aka Ruffles!!! Well dogs meet, become friends forever, and now Daniel has to convince Molly that he is the person to love her forever and falling in love is nothing to run away from.

The entire story line is a kaleidoscope of wit, emotions, care, and love of two people accepting that love is for real, accepting the fact that new friends can be made and those very friends will stay by you through hurt, accepting the fact there a really good people in this world with genuine care and affection, and that mantle doesn’t entirely belong to only your loyal canine.

Sarah Morgan’s “From Manhattan With Love” series is utterly charming, whimsical and enchanting as the magic of New York spreads to the extended family. I thought “Miracle On 5th Avenue” was my favorite of the series so far, but “New York Actually” steals my heart…. for now. Now let’s see how Fliss and Seth fare their separation, reunion and more.

I have to blame this hot and kind cowboy for enjoying his story so much. Logan McCord’s future may have gone down the clown’s ass, but it only paved the way to his real life partner Reese Stephens. A one-night stand to drown their sorrows leaves them longing for more, but fate says it’s time for a separation.

Yet destiny brings Reese back into Logan’s life and his hometown. But with Reese also comes a past that has tainted her whole life forcing her to move from one place to another. The attraction between Logan and Reese gives her a hope for laying down roots, yet her past and Logan’s ex seem to make it a bit difficult for them.

I think this is by far one of Delores’s best book I’ve read. Granted I love all her books, but “Blame It On The Cowboy” for the extra pizzazz, extra charisma and extra chemistry that had me falling in love with Logan and Reese. Reese is one heck of a courageous girl, smiling in the face of adversity, always putting others ahead of her, always with a helping hand and a kind heart. And Logan is the quintessential cowboy with a heart of gold, protecting his loved ones and dealing with his meddling siblings.

The entire story was fast paced, Reese’s best friend is a riot, intense passion and witty dialogues are a treasure to enjoy, and the chemistry between Logan and Reese is fabulous considering they are fictional characters and all that credit goes to Delores Fossen as she gives us another entertaining love story.

Christie Ridgeway is relatively a new author on my list that I’m enjoying reading. She packs quite a punch of emotions and some heartwarming narration of romance and love. And I “Can’t Fight This Feeling” to read more of her books!

Can'tFightThisFeeling-CabinFever-ChristieRidgeway-June2015

Angelica is trying to rebuild her life Blue Arrow Lake after her father drains her and several other investors off of their life savings in a Ponzi scheme. Working in a hardware store, no home to go to and desperately trying to find her bearings, she runs into Brett Walker, the guy who’s been giving her sleepless nights.

Brett Walker runs his own landscaping company, and is very protective of his hometown and his sisters. And now Angelica is bringing out feelings that he has buried a long time ago. With the war behind him but the demons still chasing him, Brett wants nothing more than to stay away from Angel Face. But circumstances bring Angelica as his neighbor and he ends up fighting a losing battle with his heart.

Christie Ridgeway has a way of drawing her characters with depth and soul. Angelica as the lost and brave woman, fighting to love herself and gain confidence sure brings a lump of sadness. With dialogues that twist our hearts, and passion to sizzle the sheets, she does a super fine job of creating a story of love, support and courage.

A definite good read for its immense strength of narration and emotions, “Can’t Find This Feeling” will touch your heart.

Another addition to her series of Fool’s Gold, Susan Mallery is roping in cowboys and city girls to charm her reads. “Kiss Me” brings city girl Phoebe Kitzke to the charming town of Fool’s Gold and the sprawling ranch run by Zane Nicholson.

KissMe-FoolsGold17-SusanMallery-Jul2015

With her real estate license in jeopardy of being revoked, the pretty and always helpful Phoebe decides to take a break. She is sweet, smart and a sucker for helping the needy with a gigantic heart of gold, spending time in the country and conversing with animals seem to fulfill her and make her happy. And with one hot cowboy giving her the looks, she hopes to find a person who can care about her.

Zane Nicholson has his life and hands quite full with his charming, nerdy and troublesome brother who lands him to run a cattle drive. He really has no time for a woman, but Phoebe sure makes him question his priorities and what he wants in life.

“Kiss Me” is utterly captivating, deliciously romantic, deeply emotional and makes you feel for the characters and the secondary characters. I loved the way Susan incorporated them into the main story, a sub-plot within the main plot, as she explores human feelings and failings, adoption and fears, insecurities and anger, and the sweet strings of love, family and support.

Susan Mallery is as always supremely charming, simple and beautiful with her narration.
