I have to keep repeating myself that if anyone hasn’t read “The Naked Men” series, you are missing out on a fabulous and entertaining saga of love stories written by Christi Barth…. of five friends, blood brothers since teenagers, partners in death and life, bachelors who have fallen to their knees in love…and Christi Barth totally rocks these romances…. this is one series that I strongly vouch to be read!

TryingItAll-NakedMen#4-ChristiBarth-May2017

The fourth “Naked Man” Riley Ness, the planner, the organizer, the guy who is anal about being ready for anything every single moment of his life, finally meets his match in Summer Sheridan, the gorgeous, the flighty, the lady who takes life head on with absolutely zero planning. And there’s absolutely no way of escaping each other, as they are part of the tight circle of friendship.

Polar opposites yet the sparks of attraction bring them together, diverse views as wide as the ocean, yet lust seems to keep them together, and with their outlook on life at two ends of the spectrum, the wholesomeness of their relationship seems to bind them together. Summer and Riley keep the readers entertained, “Trying It All” with their dynamic antics and verbal spars and the credit of plotting a smashing love story goes to Christi Barth. This is one author discovered that am totally in love with and look forward to reading her books.

The entire series should be read to enjoy these Naked Men, as they open up their hearts and feelings to the outside world, baring themselves to the world of their fears and insecurities, laying the fact that successful and rich men do have their own issues and that life is just one happy place because you have the money.

Stacey Lynn hooks me to the “Fireside Series”! Not only is she good with keeping the plot interesting, she’s managed to place emotions and romance in good sequence making her stories pretty captivating.

“His To Cherish” is heart wrenching and heartwarming story of loss and pain, faith and hope and support and care of family and friends as Aidan Deveraux goes through the worst pain that a father can go through. As he tries to survive the loss of his own flesh and blood, it’s not easy to get over the anger and the guilt.

As a witness to the tragedy and a friend of Aidan, Chelsea Dwyer tries to be the shoulder to lean on and a friend to lend an ear and help ease the pain of loss. And it’s up to Aidan to realize that it’s important to protect and cherish what’s been given to him. That hope and love can still be a part of their future.

“His To Cherish” is a very good read that tugs our heartstrings and warms our hearts with the love and care of those around and that amidst the loss, a future can be created and cherished. Stacy Lynn has given Aidan and Chelsea a good in depth character as they navigate through the fears and loss.

A new author, a new series Sergeant Joey’s Boys, and the first in the series, “Always For You: Jack” is a decent read. Meet Jack McShane, ex-special forces operative and now running a construction business. Being a foster child has given him enough insight to the recognize when a kid is in trouble and his desire to fulfill his foster father’s dream only motivates him to help Ricky.

And then we have Caitlyn Curtis, Ricky’s tutor who becomes Jack’s love interest and more. Kind and passionate, understanding and supportive Caitlyn is a perfect partner for Jack.

The story was good, the characters well developed, the premise a real life issue and the plot interesting but what really did not work for me was what exactly was Alexis Morgan‘s genre here. It wasn’t really a romance because the story was more about Ricky, Jack and foster care. There were pages of dialogues and interaction between Jack and Caitlyn that really did not generate any chemistry. And for a while Ricky was relegated to the background and his story did not seem to progress. I think the bridge between Ricky, Jack and Caitlyn was not developed well and felt the story dragging a bit.

All in all, the book can be read once. There are interesting parts that will hold attention and I think the main highlight is Jack and Ricky.

“Wanting It All”, the second in the Naked Men Series is my first read of Christi Barth and boy did I not enjoy it to my heart’s content! As unusual as the concept of six high school friends defying death and keeping their relationship alive and well into their present life is temptation reading right there. And add podcast and live telecast of their feelings and thoughts, as naked as the can be, is just pure pleasure reading.

WantingItAll-NakedMen#2-ChristiBarth-Aug2016

Knox Davis is the savvy computer genius, billionaire business magnate and a charmer of women in all the United States of America barring three states. Having grown up poor and seeing his mother struggle to give him a decent education and live, he’s made a vow to become so rich for many lifetimes to come, and keep his mother in a lap of luxury and he’s succeeded and more. He lives for his friends and would die for him. So when resident of Alaska Ms. Madison Abbot literally gets saved by Knox, little does he realize that forget about adding Alaska to his list of conquests, it’s his heart that needs all the protection in the world.

Madison Abbot comes to DC with a mission to find her partner for life a stepbrother that she hadn’t even existed until recently. Getting saved by Knox was not on her list of tourist attractions, yet she keeps him in her list of Mr. Right probable. Spending time with him threatens her heart and the attraction that sparks the fire between them sure takes them on a roller coaster ride of passion, insecurities and fears. But Madison is one stubborn and determined woman, and making Knox her life partner and to have a family that she never had is her mission now.

I must say that this book caught me off guard with its humor and wit, the strong and unbreakable relationship of six brothers that cheated death and lived to become heroes, the immense strength and support for each other is the foundation of the Naked Men Series, and Christi Barth did a super brilliant job of achieving that chemistry in the story. I had to go buy the first book “Risking It All”, after reading Knox’s story and am just as charmed and captivated with the plot and narration.

I am totally hooked line and sinker into the Naked Men, and cannot wait to read the stories of the others as they find the love of their lives. And the covers are gorgeous!!!!

Adding another new author to my list to be read again and again! In fact I went and bought a few of her books! I always get goose bumps every time I read a new author and end up loving them for repeat reads and a place in my library.

Vonnie Davis is a brand new author and her latest (and first for me), “Her Survivor” takes readers into the stories of the courageous and brave soldiers who guard us with their lives, and the aftermath of war and death. But let me assure that there is plenty of romance to warm the heart.

HerSurvivor-BlackEagleOps#1-VonnieDavis-Jul2016

Navy Seal Dustin Frank is recovering from the trauma of losing a leg and getting acclimated to a life that will just not be normal anymore, yet he needs to make it normal to survive. Heading to Eagle Ridge Ranch to surround with his army brothers to recuperate, never did he dream of a life that comes in the bookstore owner Kelcee Todd.

Inheriting the bookstore that she loves with all her heart, Kelcee Todd is all set to step into the next chapter of her life. Strong and independent, warm and compassionate, supportive and kind, Kelcee Todd has a lot to be grateful for and has a baggage of past to unload.

Together Kelcee and Dustin are at each other’s throats, together they set the sparks on fire and together they sizzle between the sheets, and together they have to overcome a danger from the past, if they want to have a chance at a future together.

Vonnie Davis does a brilliant job of caricaturing Dustin as the struggling war veteran, giving us an insight into the lives of these brave wounded soldiers, fighting the nightmares of death and tragedy, yet giving them hope as they cling to the support and warmth of friends and kind people. Kelcee Todd is a firecracker of a woman, going toe to toe with Dustin as his better half.

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Dustin and Kelcee, along with the supporting characters, and the thrill of looking forward to a new series as Vonnie Davis lays foundation to the Black Eagle Ops with the first book, “Her Survivor”.
