Her Last Goodbye -May Never Come

Melinda Leigh’s “Morgan Dane” series became a roaring success with Morgan and Lance forming a great team as they fight for justice and their personal relationship seems to be simmering on the edge as they test those grounds.

HerLastGoodbye-MorganDane#2

Book two of the series; “Her Last Goodbye” takes Morgan and Lance on the hunt for the perpetrator who kidnapped a young mother. With a secondary plot intertwined into the main storyline, Lance and Morgan have to use whatever resources they have to unravel the person and mystery behind the kidnapping.

What you see may not always be what you get, and behind an innocent life may very well be an evil lurking, misleading and deceptive. And this is exactly what Lance and Morgan need to decipher to make sure this wouldn’t be “Her Last Goodbye”. Amidst the danger is the sublime romance between Morgan and Lance, taking another step forward in their relationship.

With a twisted plot, Melinda Leigh gives the readers a captivating second read in “Her Last Goodbye” as Morgan Dane settles in with her new life, her kids and family, danger and romance all rolled into one big package of suspense, love, family and support.

A fabulous read!

Catherine Bybee is one of the most beautiful and entertaining writers I’ve had the pleasure of reading and re-visit several times and here she is with another interesting series, “First Wives Series”.

“Fool Me Once” is the start of this series and boy oh boy, isn’t it a totally novel concept of a plot. The foundation of the series, Alliance in itself is so very fascinating and the coming of the First Wives Club is even more enthralling and riveting.

FoolMeOnce-FirstWives#1-CatherineBybee-Sept2017

As the attorney for Alliance, once divorced and founding member of the so called First Wives Club, Lori Cumberland sets off on a cruise with recent rich divorcees, to keep them out of the limelight and to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation from the media. She definitely doesn’t need Reed Barlow to throw a wrench in her plans.

Reed Barlow is on a mission to gather intel, not fall in love with the cynical attorney. Yet he cannot keep his distance from Lori and the attraction sparks lust and eventually don’t accept-it’s-love mode. The cruise becomes their dating platform and secrets are just on the horizon to bring a storm.

“Fool Me Once” is an absolute surprise of a read. There’s so much intrigue and suspense, sublime romance and the chemistry between all the players is an absolute pleasure to read and enjoy. Lori and Reed, other members of the First Wives Club, and not to mention Lori’s partner in crime running Alliance and her team of security, this story is adventurous, romantic and truly stunning!

Catherine Bybee is one amazing author you don’t want to miss reading. Her stories are based on real life events, there’s humor in anxiety, emotion in passion, trust in distrust and love in many different ways. She is a master in bringing out the best in her characters and penning a story that brings out her very best.

Trust Erin Nichols to give new meaning to some things put on this planet, be it marshmallows, candy canes, champagne and not limited to (mind you) and now Chutes and Ladders, which happens to be one of my all time favorite board games when I was growing up! And what can be more fun than us reading Kit Derby and her childhood nemesis Dillon Alexander succumbing to their lust over a game of chutes and ladders? I would say totally orgasmic.

TurnedUp-TakingChances#3-ErinNicholas-Aug2017

This story is my favorite of the three books in the “Taking Chances” series. It’s like Erin saved the best for the last. “Turned Up” is so much more sexily argumentative, humorously bickering, erotically charming, and emotionally challenging. The ER physician and the psychiatrist, one deals with the physical and the other of the mind, and when these two come together in a snowstorm, it’s nothing short of a “Turned Up” explosion.

As I said, Erin is maestro of imagination and the queen of plotting. The one-liners are rib tickling, the rapport and teasing between Jake, Max and Dillon is heartwarming, and the passion between Dillon and Kit is combustible, a piece of art worth every engaging word and explosive feeling!

Melody Anne’s “Billionaire Aviators Series” is still as intense as the passion that smolders between the protagonists, choppy and turbulent as the waters and skies they ride and just as warm and lovely as the Armstrong brothers try to find love albeit the demands of their father’s will.

TurbulentIngtrigue-BillioanaireAviators#4

Years in the CIA kept Ace Armstrong away from his family, to protect and to serve his purpose. And finally comes the time to clear the misunderstandings and bridge the gap between siblings and what a sibling wedding seems to be the perfect setup to clear the air and recuperate from injuries. But Ace never saw the turbulence called Dakota Forbes entering his life and he’s not sure if Dakota is more dangerous to his life or the intriguing threats that are dogging him, placing his family in danger.

The ever positive, and charming Dakota Forbes wants to live life to the fullest. With a smart mouth and a sassy attitude, she keeps Ace on his toes and his heart in flitters, all the while hoping to keep her distance from the dangerous Ace. But then heart and mind never are in tandem, and with Dakota getting into the crosshairs of Ace’s dangerous past, she’s forced to stick close to Ace…finally giving her heart and soul to her future.

The final book in the Billionaire Aviators Series, “Turbulent Intrigue” is a wonderful ending to the Armstrong siblings’ saga. Coming together finally after their father’s death, clearing misunderstandings and finding their futures, coming together as one to fight back against the danger that comes to their doorstep, Melody Anne did a brilliant job giving a perfect ending to their stories.

The chemistry between Ace and Dakota is sizzling, the rapport between the brothers is so very supportive, warm and caring, Uncle Sherman is the perfect blend of family and mischief adding spice to the story!

Book two in Marina Adair’s Sequoia Lake series, Ford Jamison makes “Every Little Kiss” count to woo and protect Liv Preston and her adorable little boy.

EveryLittleKiss-SequoiaLake#2-MarinaAdair-Jul2017

After her husband’s death Liv Preston moves to Sequoia Lake with her six year old for a fresh start and her main goal is to make sure her special needs son can transition into his new life and get back the smiles he seems to have lost. Working hard and trying to fight life’s everyday battles, Liv never saw the spark of second chance living right next door.

Head of the K-9 Division in Reno, Ford Jamison comes to Sequoia Lake to make sure the past that he cannot seem to forget is managing life alright. As a search and rescue member, he understands loss, gut instincts and rescues, but he never would have thought his heart would get in the way of his life, and the past would speed bump his future, with secrets that may take Liv and her little boy away from him.

Another heartwarming story from Marina Adair, “Every Little Kiss” is a beautiful story of second chances, redemption and the warmth of friendship and care, as serene and gorgeous as Sequoia Lake and it’s residents.

“Every Little Kiss” is sweet, filled with promise and a lifetime of love.
