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.

Third in the series, “Giving It All” has the wanderlust Logan Marsh rethinking his life, putting down roots and reconcile with the surprise that life has thrown at him in the form of a half-sister. With a passion for saving lives and helping in disaster zones, Logan has been around and about. But a chance meeting with his high school crush in the midst of a storm, sure has him longing for roots and a love that has his friends knocked his friends senseless.

Brooke Gallagher cannot believe that fate has thrown Logan Marsh into her path, taking her into a storm of passion and emotions. Going on a vacation to heal from a tragic past, reacquainting with Logan and acting on her feelings since being a teenager seems more like a vacation and a stress buster.

But before they can really think of a future together, Logan has a few things to take care and reconcile with his feelings that Brook comes first than anything else. And Christi Barth does exactly that with amazing clarity and depth as she explores the fears and insecurities, the battle of words and feelings eloquently penned, the chemistry among the Naked Men, so beautifully depicted with unconditional strength and support, and the most important thing of being there in life and death.

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.

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.

Anytime I think of Violet Duke, I picture this ball of positive energy with wings, a wand in one hand sprinkling pixie dust of romance and brandishing with the other a pen to write the most alluring and charismatic of love stories!!!

Jackson'sTrust-FourthDownSeries-VioletDuke

Whether the heroine is a chocolate connoisseur or an expert in arms, a shrewd business lady or a super smart sports analyst, Violet Duke writes each character within their fields of strength with so much detail and aplomb, it’s hard not falling for them and their charm. I love her attention to detail and every dialogue brings a chuckle or a smile…. and sometimes a tear.

And Leila Hart is not far behind in giving Jackson Gray a ride for his pedestal of sports fanaticism and analytical skills. Hiding her skills as a sports analyst close to her heart, Leila Hart is trying hard to blend into the background and concentrate on fulfilling her dream of becoming a college and pro football reporter.

Her smile kicks Jackson Gray in the gut, and her intelligence only convinces him that she’s hiding things that he wants to know, play by play. As his Sunshine shuffles and evades, Jackson strategizes and plays to win her heart. And what you get in “Jackson’s Trust”, is a story full of witty dialogues, panty melting wooing, a few sacks and turnovers, huddles and touchdowns as Jackson and Leila race to the end zone.

And that my fellow readers is a brilliant touchdown!!!!

Zack – Icy Hot Passion

Sawyer Bennett’s “Cold Fury Hockey Series” just keeps getting hot and hotter with each story. As if “Alex” and “Garrett” are not enough to get our hearts racing and adrenaline pumping, “Zack” goes a step beyond with his passion for ice hockey, devotion for his son and his surprising passion for Kate Francis.

Zack-ColdFury-SawyerBennett-Jun2015

Kate Francis comes to the residence of rising hockey start Zack Grantham as his son’s nanny. Independent, kind, lovable and with a giant heart of love, she takes over the residence, his son and his heart with her wit, understanding and patience. Despite her insecure childhood, and a family that is struggling, she retains her positivity, sense of humor and insight of life.

Zack Grantham has no idea what to do with Kate as she fills his home with laughter and love, Supporting and understanding; he falls for her charm and big heart. But insecurities and a guilty past keep him at bay from taking the next step with Kate, Yes they succumb to their attraction and desire with no strings attached, but it reaches a point where Kate has no choice but to leave Zack.

Sawyer Bennett proves once again her prowess as a writer, with her narrative and a brilliant characterization of Zack and Kate. She puts so much love, pain, and emotions into this relationship, you can’t help but feel for them, laugh with them, cry with them, for the unfairness of the situation and insecurities.

Of all the three books so far of the series, “Zack” wins hands down. Can’t wait to read what Sawyer has in store for Ryker.
