The duo sisters of Melanie and Shawna have been one of my all time top favorites and have read all their books; the Sloans being one of their most sizzling and charming creations to date, closely followed by the Hope Falls Series. And to date Hope Falls continue to home some amazing love stories – Something in the air for sure 😉

Book 12 in the series “Lucky Kiss” tames another the MMA alpha Lucas Dorsey as he falls for the fiery firefighter  Bad boy and all Lucky is on a break from MMA and where better to get plenty of R&R than Hope Falls. There’s magic in the air, romance in the wind and the citizens of Hope Falls sure know how to match-make unsuspecting people.

As they get to know each other, Lucky and Deanna have a multitude of insecurities to overcome. As they give into their sparks of attraction, painful pasts become an obstacle to a relationship. But then with the help and support of a wonderful family, the unconditional support of extended family and friends, and with the past making peace with the present, Lucky and Deanna just have to have their HEA.

It always gives me immense pleasure to read this sister duo of Melanie and Shawna as they continue to tease the readers with heartwarming love stories and amazing characters, who are just perfectly imperfect! What I love about their stories is the ease of their narration filled with so much humor and charm. I want a good love story to brighten my day, give me warm fuzzies and make my heart flutter, then Melanie Shawn it is for me.

Magic Kiss – Magical Bliss!

It’s truly amazing how the sister duo of Melanie and Shawna pen these magical stories in Hope Falls taking readers into a world of hope and love, family and friends, hot guys and sassy ladies, riding on sweet romance and sizzling passion. They are enchanting, mesmerizing and totally gooey to read!

MagicKiss-HopeFalls11-Sept2015

The latest couple to fall into the magical web of togetherness is Ellen Locke and Logan Dorsey, succumbing to a love that has grown over the years and only became stronger with time. As a romance writer, a young widow and a mother to an amazing kid, Ellen has yet to write her own happily-ever-after. Logan’s heart belongs to Ellen from the moment he’s been keeping an eye on her and his godson, since the time his best friend has laid his life at war.

This is one of the most emotional and brilliant stories of the sisters I’ve read. Complexity of emotions in its simple narration, the daily grind of a mother in all her professional glory, the love of a guy whose heart beats with the breath of his beloved – they paid attention to minor details, to the small nuances of daily life, cracking jokes at writers/authors, it was like reading a love story of an amazing writer. I loved the attention they paid to the adulation of knowing a bestseller writer, and the reaction of the general public and their friends.

“Magic Kiss” is just a riot of fun, frolic and happiness and a gamut of emotions!

Once in a while it’s just utterly serene and delicious to read a romance without too much frills and shrills. A quite romance with just the hero and heroine, finding their way with each other, connecting with their thoughts and feelings, a few supportive friends and an uncomplicated family thrown into the mix, there’s nothing more romantic and enchanting than falling into a pure, simple love story.

SecretKiss-HopeFalls10-MelanieShawn-Jul2015

The duo sisters of Melanie and Shawna have been one of my all time top favorites and have read all their books; the Sloans being one of their most sizzling and charming creations to date. And the Hope Falls Series continues its journey of romance and entertainment with perfect kisses, secret crushes and happily-ever-after.

“Secret Kiss” is such charmer of a story and even more dazzling are Adam Dorsey and Jane Marshall. Ex-CIA and used to living a life of undercover and deceit, all Adam wants is to take it easy and put his nerdy brain to work on his software. But fate had a different plan and throws him into the path of his destiny, Jane Marshall. Lovable, innocent and ever helpful Jane crushes on Adam and circumstances makes Adam her boyfriend.

As Adam tries to put a closure to a thorny past, Jane infiltrates into his heart with no hope of escape. Acting as her boyfriend sparks the flames of desire and the proximity only ignites the passion both can’t resist. As lust heats the sheets, humor coats their days and family fuels their relationship, it is only a matter of time for love to build a nest in their hearts.

Full of humor and warmth, friendship and support, witty banter and family teasing, “Secret Kiss” is just perfect to heal a heart, bring a smile to the lips and fill us with hopes of goodness all around us.

I’ve missed Hope Falls and it’s totally orgasmic to revisit it and the wonderful characters have made the Hope Falls Series memorable and unforgettable.

The sister duo of Melanie and Shawna take the readers back to Hope Falls, to Shelby Kellan and the sexy and private Levi Dorsey. Shelby is coming back home to the safety of her family and the support of her friends, to escape a traumatic and abusive breakup. Hiding the truth from family and wanting to recuperate emotionally as she decides her future, Hope Falls is the perfect safety net. Or so she thinks until she faces Levi and ends up working in his bar.

PerfectKiss-HopeFalls9-May2015

The quiet and private ex detective Levi Dorsey wants to keep his life that – quiet and private. And private with his thoughts of Shelby and the perfect kiss they had shared more than a year ago. A kiss that had ruined him for any other woman, and an attraction and lust that only Shelby can cure. And working together everyday puts him on the edge of a precipice!! And his love for Shelby would always have him keeping her under his protective embrace.

Another simple, charming and a perfect love story, with all its imperfections, Melanie Shawn weaves magic to my heart’s content with Shelby and Levi. The detective in him realizes the pain behind Shelby and yet gives her the space to trust him enough with her fears. As for Shelby, as educated and savvy she may be, it takes courage and immense strength for any woman to break away from domestic abuse. She needs support, love and the security of family and friends, to protect and help her mend and as that abused woman Shelby is just perfect.

Captivating and charming, sizzling and hot, emotional and intense, “Perfect Kiss” is simply a perfect love story that would appeal to the heart and leave a smile of pure happiness.

No matter how many times I say, it still would not do justice to this super sumptuous, utterly delicious and sizzling love stories that would leave us breathless and sheer pleasure. Talk about brilliant talent under the sky, coming together to make this an irresistible read – Violet Duke, the sister duo of Melanie Shawna, Bella Andre, Melissa Foster, Erin Nicholas, Carly Phillip, Lauren Blakely, Sawyer Bennett, Jessie Evans and Crista McHugh.

And if I start reviewing each book, it would run pages ;). So I’ll try to stick to a condensed version of some the ones I’ve read so far and with no order of preference –

LoveLaughterSteamyEverAfter-Release-May2015

Can’t Help Falling In Love by Bella Andre: Book 3 of the infamous Sullivan family and Bella’s crowning glory, Gabe Sullivan rescues Megan Harris and her daughter from a fire and loses his heart and soul to these two beautiful ladies. A sweet, charming and sizzling romance that we can’t help falling in love with.

Out Of Bounds by Erin Nicholas: Part of the Boys Of Fall series that is a standalone, Jackson Brady returns to Quinn, TX to help his ailing high school coach and falls out of bounds with his one time nemesis Annabelle. Old hurt and past love, embers of passion still sparkling between them, Jackson and Annabelle set our hearts on fire.

Love, Tussles And Takedowns by Violet Duke: Book 3 of the Cactus Creek series, Violet Duke charms the pants off her readers with her delightful story of Hudson Reyes and Liana Lin. Ex-combat military veteran meets the arms and martial arts dynamo and what we get is a barrel of fun, laughter, love and the unconditional support and strength of family and community.

Dare To Desire by Carly Phillips: Book two of the Dare Series, Carly Phillips fires up her writing a notch as she throws quarterback Alex Dare into the path of Madison Evans. Retired early due to an injury, the chip-on-a-shoulder Alex is drawn to his past with Madison, as she struggles to keep him at arm’s length. They sizzle, they charm and they leave us wanting more of them.

Falling For The Wingman by Crista McHugh: This was the first book of Crista McHugh’s that I read and was utterly taken in by the savvy tomboy Alex Leadbetter, who gets turned on by cars, and the only other person who can twist her insides is Air Force pilot Caleb Kelly. And Caleb is hell bent on getting this sister to be his side forever. Book 3 of the Kelly Brother Series, the Kelly brothers are a force to reckon with and you’ll fall on love with Jasper!!!!

Actually Love by Melanie Shawn: What can I say about this sister duo. They write sinful love stories and their Crossroad Series is just as popular as them. Book 7 of the Crossroad Series, Actually Love brings PR Jessie Sloan and sculpted boxing champion Zach Courtland under one roof as they fake their relationship for mutual reasons. But living together, love actually lands a hard punch and knocks their hearts out. So can they put their insecurities and fears outside the ring and be together forever? Alluring and an endearing love story of romance and meddling Sloan family.

And I’m sure the other four books by Melissa Foster, Jessie Evans, Lauren Blakely and Sawyer Bennett are equally captivating, delightful and utterly delicious (yet to finish the rest). I’ve read their books before and they have been on my list of favorites for a while now.

Love, Laugher And Steamy Ever Afters is worth the weight in gold!
