About DIGNITY:

Looks can be deceiving.

I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.

I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.

I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.

I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.

That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.

I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.

When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.

What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.

 

My Review

5 Stars!

Fantastic. Amazing. Ridiculously good. I could keep going with the adjectives but I will say this… This is by far my favorite Jay Crownover book EVER! I didn’t think anyone could top Bax. Yes, I know. All those Marked Men and Saints, but I love Bax. Only, I love Stark! He is intuitive and honest and dark and so full of emotion. His connection to Noe was perfection.

The gritty world of The Point is already a character in and of itself. Crownover has written it into an living, breathing character. Then, she writes these fantastic, real characters to live in the world of The Point and the entire thing becomes something big and palpable and engrossing. I have been waiting for Noe and Stark’s story since reading the end of Honor. I just knew it was going to be amazing. I had hyped it up in my head and it lived up to all that I had hoped. Danger and intrigue combined with beloved characters and a love story that exceeded my imagination combine to make one helluva read.

The Point pulls people in and won’t let them go. Diginity is much like that… it sucks you in and you find yourself turning pages long into the night.

This book is a MUST read and goes on my Top Reads of 2017!

To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.

My Review

5 Stars!

Amazing!!  A Top Read of 2017!

I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved this book! Katy Regnery goes outside her norm and brings us a highly emotional tale of love and healing. Told in alternating POV, you will love Cassidy and Brynn and their unique story!

I loved the unique back story of Cassidy’s life. The son of a serial killer? What??? Poor Cassidy had it bad – the people in town unfairly condemned him as a boy solely on who his father was. His family convinced him he would grow up to be bad and set the course of his life. When he meets Brynn his life turns upside down in a good way but he is holding back, convinced he is bad to the core. Brynn is a breath of fresh air. She does her best to convince him he is good and can be loved. She just never gave up.

So emotional. I ugly cried more than once. Regnery s writing sucked me in from the very beginning. I appreciate the care and time Regnery must have spent researching for this story.

This is a hard left from Regnery’s usual style, but it was a successful venture outside her norm. I hope for more of the same!

FROM THIS MOMENT CR BANNER.jpg

From This Moment, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone from USA Today Bestselling author Melanie Harlow is LIVE!

MHFromThisMomentBookCover5x8_BW_300.jpg

From This Moment by Melanie Harlow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: October 10th, 2017

It was like seeing a ghost.

When my late husband’s twin brother moves back to our small town, I want to avoid him. Everything about Wes reminds me of the man I lost and the life we’d planned together, and after eighteen long months struggling just to get out of bed, I’m finally doing okay. I have a new job, an amazing support group, and a beautiful five-year-old daughter to parent. I don’t want to go backward.

But I’m drawn to him, too. He understands my grief and anger and guilt like no one else—and I understand his. Before long, that understanding becomes desire, and that desire becomes uncontrollable.

He says he doesn’t care what people think, and love can never be wrong. But life has taught me its cruelest lesson–love doesn’t always win.

If only my heart would believe it.

 

My Review

5 Stars!!

Holy, beautiful romance! This book is at the top of my 2017 Top Reads list! Melanie Harlow has outdone herself with this emotional tale of healing and love.

Hannah’s husband died a sudden death leaving her alone with their young daughter. Wes, the twin brother of Hannah’s husband, returns home two years after his brother’s death and he runs into Hannah. Things are awkward and emotionally charged, especially for Hannah who sees her dead husband’s face on this man who is not her husband.

The writing in this book is phenomenal. Harlow has outdone herself with this book. She has written so much emotion into every word, every page. You will get sucked into Wes and Hannah’s relationship so far you won’t even see what is coming. I ugly cried, people! More than once! There is so much to the story, but at its core, the book is about healing and love and doing what is right for you.

This is a MUST read that I can’t stop raving about!

“Witty dialogue, fun dates, and a deliciously nerdy hero all match perfectly with a heroine who doesn’t really know she needs all that until it’s right there in front of her. Lauren Blakely has another winner with this one!”

~Crystal, Bookseller

 

 

Excerpt :

What am I doing?

Dylan is my client’s brother.

Dylan is now my client.

I’m not interested in a match for myself. I’m not looking for love. I’m focused on work, and Dylan is my work.

The trouble is, my work turns me on more than I expected, and that’s for one elemental reason—I like him.

I like him so very much.

That’s why I jerk this conversation back to the purpose of these get-togethers—prepping him for his princess charming, whoever she may be.

I brush one palm against the other. “The big question is—are you ready for me to set you up on your first date? Or do you think the fall in yoga has set you back?” I wink.

“You think falling in yoga means I’m not ready to date?”

I laugh. Nervously. “Well, not entirely. But it did remind me what we talked about before we had tea. That we all have a bit of dork in us. So, I didn’t know if you wanted to walk through all the potential topics, moments, pitfalls, and so on.”

“Like a pre-date prep? Or maybe even a practice session?”

“Sure, we can practice now if you’d like,” I offer.

He doesn’t answer right away. When he does, he takes his time, like he’s making an offer. “Or maybe we can practice in a true date simulation.”

Tingles race over my shoulders. “Like a practice date?”

His eyes twinkle like stars. “I need a practice date badly. Can I take you on one? It would be so helpful to review everything. Make sure I’m ready.”

When he puts it like that… “Yes, of course.”

I want him to put his best foot forward. I didn’t say yes because I want to date him. I wouldn’t do that, even though when he walks away, all I can think is how on earth did I wind up with a pitter-pattering heart for a man I’m handing off to another woman?

Blog Tour: 5 Stars for The Lucky Heart by Devney Perry! One of my 2017 Top Reads!!!

Today we have the blog tour for The Lucky Heart by Devney Perry! Be sure to grab your copy now!

Title: The Lucky Heart

Author: Devney Perry

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Lucky Heart:
Life on his ranch could be their future. If they can overcome their past.

Felicity’s life story reads like the script to a bad soap opera. Girl’s high-school boyfriend becomes a drug addict. Girl falls for boyfriend’s best friend. Girl leaves them both behind only to return home years later for murdered ex-boyfriend’s funeral. Now she’s back home in Montana, ready to start fresh. She’s got a long list of amends to make and relationships to rebuild, including one with the man who has owned her heart for sixteen years.

Silas doesn’t need much. He’s got a great horse, close friends and the Lucky Heart ranch, but something has always been missing. He’s not an idiot. He knows the missing piece is Felicity. And now that she’s returned to Prescott, he’s got a second chance to win her heart. This time, the only thing standing in his way is history. Drudging up the past is going to be about as painful as playing tug of war with barbed wire. But if they can heal old wounds, he’ll get the girl he should have had all along.

My Review:

5 Stars!!

This amazing series just keeps getting better!

The Lucky Heart is a second chance romance with amazing characters and a rich, emotional backstory!

Silas and Felicity have been friends for most of their lives and as they got older an undeniable attraction grew. Silas has loved his best friend’s little sister from the beginning, but Felicity was with Wes, his other best friend. Then, Wes let Felicity down and she ran. She only returned a few times in sixteen years, but when she did their attraction flared and led to nights together, only for the to separate again in the morning. Now, Felicity is back for good and ready to make amends, but she and Silas are on shaky ground.

I loved this book! I appreciated that Perry didn’t make their journey an easy one. There were so many things at play in the book including Felicity’s lack of confidence in Silas’s ability to forgive and her own self-confidence. Family interference and misjudgment also play into things. But, there is a pleasure in reading about a character’s redemption and Felicity deserved hers.

If you haven’t read the series yet, do so. You don’t have to read the other books in the series first as all are written as interconnected standalones, but there are some spoilers in each book. This is a definite must read!

Blog Tour: 5 Stars for Firefly by Molly McAdams!


Title: Firefly
Author: Molly McAdams
Series: A Redemption Novel
Genre: Romantic Suspense


“I’m wrecked, ruined, destroyed, and in awe.” – #1 New York Times bestselling author, Rachel Van Dyken

The next captivating installment in New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams’s Redemption series.

As the Princess of the Irish-American Mob, there’s no shortage of men ready to help guard and protect me. To slowly suffocate me to the point of seeking freedom—a place where I can breathe.

Kieran Hayes has been saving me for as long as I can remember. It’s in his blood, and one of the many reasons I fell in love with him. Until my favorite trait became his biggest flaw, making me resent the man I love. An unwavering warrior, his love for me has been shrouded by those instincts.

Save Lily. Protect Lily. Hide Lily. Cage Lily.

What I wasn’t prepared for was Dare—the man who would set my world on fire with just one touch. He saw straight through to my soul, as though he knew I was desperate for freedom, and silently demanded my heart from the beginning.

And I didn’t expect Dare to be Demitri Borello—the reason for so many deaths in my family. A man who will take my life the moment he finds out who I am.

Despite it all, I’ll love him until that moment comes.

A fire will die if there is no oxygen for it to consume. Ours is rapidly stealing every last breath we can sacrifice to it.

 

***The Redemption series is a series of romantic suspense standalones***

 

My Review:

5 Stars!

I am wrecked! This book wrecked me in the best way!

The second book in the Redemption series is an emotional tale of enemies-to-lovers, competing worlds and recognizing your soul mate in the last place you would expect.

Lily O’Sullivan is trapped. Trapped in a her life. Trapped in a relationship. Trapped by the people who love her most and some who don’t. She longs for something else. She finds that something else in a person who is her sworn enemy. Dare is the leader of the Italian mafia in their town. He is angry and looking for revenge, while trying to pull his family out of the bad business of mafia life. He suffered a terribly tragedy at the hands of his sworn enemies and longs for revenge, has been planning it for years. He never thought he would love again, until her.

This is a complicated story with so much history driving it. Lily and Dare are complicated and beautiful. I swear Molly McAdams words are like poetry at times, sucking you in and making you feel deeply. I wanted to cry and rage at Lily and Dare’s situation. I rooted so hard for them and yet couldn’t see a way for them to be together. I felt it all.

The writing is amazing. The secondary characters are engaging and I found myself wanting more of them. I felt for some and raged against others. This is not a quick read. It is thoughtful and engrossing and you won’t want to miss a single word or emotion.

Firefly goes on my Top Reads of 2017 list! Grab it today!

“Nothing’s getting past me,” I assured her.

Her breath washed over my lips as I leaned in to kiss her again when she whispered, “I thought we were talking about you.”

I paused for a few seconds, then looked up into her hazel eyes. “What?”

“I think I’m in danger from you.”

My brow pulled tight, and I forced out a low, frustrated laugh. “Me.”

She nodded again, the movement of her head so slow as her eyes explored mine. “I need you to let me go for so many reasons, but I easily forget why when you don’t. I think there was a reason neither of us crossed that invisible barrier before today. Because being in your arms?” She hesitated, her tongue quickly darting out to wet her lips. “Trust me, it’s dangerous.”

A weight pressed down on my chest, making it hard to breathe. Because damn it if she wasn’t right.

There were dozens of girls over the years who’d meant nothing more than a night. Maybe two. Not one could I remember the name of, most I couldn’t remember their face.

Then there’d been one who I would’ve sold my soul for if I could’ve had one more night with her.

My days with her had been everything. A slow burn that had built over time until I hadn’t been able to get enough of her. Until she’d meant too much.

And there hadn’t been a girl since.

Not a second glance. Not a thought. Nothing.

Until one morning at Brooks a few years ago.

But there was nothing slow about the thoughts and needs for the girl pressed against me. There hadn’t been since the very first morning I’d found her staring at a mirror like it had the power to destroy her world. Like that possibility fascinated her.

Fuck, if I didn’t need to find out why.

Dangerous was exactly what we were. Only she had no idea just how much.

My gut twisted as unwanted thoughts entered my mind, but I pushed them away. Because I knew what I needed to do. I needed to let her go and force myself not to follow.

But when there’s a flicker of light in your life after so much darkness, it’s impossible to stay away.

And this girl burned so damn bright.

Calling to me and beckoning me toward her, and I knew no matter how many times I let her slip away, I would follow her just to catch her again.

I brushed my thumb across her full lips. “Goddamn firefly.”

A powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados.

Review Blitz: 5 Stars for Trust by Kylie Scott

 

 

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

My Review:

5 Stars!

Dive into this amazing YA read!

Edie and John survive a harrowing experience that changes their lives and then go their separate ways. When they are unexpectedly reunited, they start a tentative friendship that slowly grows into more as they lean on each other to survive, to cope and to heal.

Kylie Scott has written a complicated story of healing, recovery and learning to trust again. Edie and John are complicated characters with so much depth. The story never rushes, instead moving along at a steady pace in a way that gives the reader the opportunity to feel and absorb and really care about the characters. Edie is insecure and tentative at the beginning, but as time progresses she really comes into her own. As she gives into the fear and uses it constructively to improve her life, you find yourself rooting for her to be okay, to let go. John is complex and brooding. His life was already complicated before the robbery, but after, he makes a concerted effort to change only to be met with resistance from others. No one believes John can be more than he was except Edie. Eventually, they rely on each other to heal and cope, because no one else an fully understand what they went through. Their road to recovery is not an easy one and Scott took the time to write honestly and carefully, never rushing and yet pushing the characters just enough. She lets their relationship develop and grow naturally culminating in a lovely partnership between two people who need and love each other.

This highly anticipated YA book from the amazing Kylie Scott is a 5 star read and one of my top reads of 2017!

“You were going to give it up to Duncan Dickerson?” he sneered. “Are you serious?”

I halted, staring at him. This was not good. “How do you know about that?”

“Anders overheard you and Hang talking.”

“Bastard.”

“Well?” he demanded, acting all authoritarian. Idiot.

“To be fair, I didn’t know his last name was Dickerson,” I said. “That’s unfortunate. Though, I wasn’t actually planning on marrying him, so . . .”

“Not funny.”

I shrugged.

“You barely know the guy.”

“Um, yeah. None of your concern. We’re not talking about this.” How mortifying! My face burned bright. People should just gather around and cook s’mores. “I appreciate that we’re friends. You mean a lot to me. But this is going to have to fall under definitely none of your damn business, so go away please.”

“We’re talking about it.” He advanced a step.

“No we are not.” And I retreated.

“You were going to let a complete stranger touch you.” Advance.

Retreat. “People do it all the time. You do it all the time.”

“But you don’t,” he said, taking the final step, backing me up against the side of his car and getting all in my face. “Edie, this is your first time we’re talking about. Isn’t it?”

“Yes, and it’s going to be messy and painful and probably horribly embarrassing and I just want it over and done with.” I tried to meet his eyes but failed, settling for a spot on his right shoulder. “You’re not a girl; you wouldn’t understand. Also, last time I checked, you’re not the gatekeeper of my hymen, John Cole. So back the fuck off.”

He said nothing.

Deep, calming breaths. “Look, someday I’ll meet someone I really like and we’ll have a deep and meaningful relationship and go at it like bunnies. But I don’t want to be the dumb virgin in that scenario.”

He slowly shook his head.

“Also, I do not want to die a virgin.”

“What? What the hell are you talking about?”

“Hey, you and I both know death can occur at any time.”

“This is crazy.”

“I’m seeing a therapist!” I told his shoulder. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m a little bit messed up these days. It’s hard for me to trust people. That’s not going to change anytime soon.”

He screwed up his face at me. “Wha—”

“I’m just trying to be practical.”

“Well, you’re being ridiculous. None of this makes sense.”

“It does to me.”

Again, he said nothing.

In fact, he said nothing for so long that I finally looked him in the eye. The anger had left him, replaced by an emotion I didn’t recognize. Worst of all, he still smelled like summer. A little sweat and the open night air, everything I loved. Liked. I meant liked.

“What?” I said, finally.

He let loose a breath. “I’ll do it.”

Review: 5 Stars for The Catch by K. Bromberg! #TopReadof2017

 

 

 

After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

My Review:

5 Stars!!

The conclusion to The Player Duet is here!

I have to tell, I thought the first book was amazing and then that cliffhanger, I just wasn’t sure where K. Bromberg would go with all of this. Then, I dove into The Catch and from the opening paragraph I was floored with this book. The emotions, the story, the twists I never saw coming. This book is nearly gutted me with emotion.

Scout and Easton… swoon. I just don’t think their story could have been done any better. I really dont. K. Bromberg’s creative mind was on point with this duet and especially this book. I picked it up and I read and I read and I read. I waved family members away, told my kids to fix their own lunches, told my husband to figure out dinner because I was not setting this book down until I was done with it. Then I hit the end and I sighed the longest, most contented sigh before I cried. I couldn’t help it. It was so emotionally satisfK. Bromying.

The Catch did more than just give us two amazing characters to love, it gave us a world of love, hope, disappointment, secrets and passion. A must read, The Catch is AMAZING!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

young couple in love, studio shot

From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a brand new series set on Blueberry Lane!

The Director and Don Juan is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based Story sisters who are all on the look-out for love.

Heiress Alice Story left her father’s company three years ago in a blaze of glory, inviting all of his employees to jump ship and join her, but only one accepted her offer: mail room clerk, Carlos Vega.

While Alice spent the next three years getting her own company off the ground, Carlos became her indispensable right-hand man — executive assistant and office manager, loyal counsel and trusted co-worker.

And all the while, they were quietly falling in love with each other.

When Alice is offered a lucrative business deal in Puerto Rico, island-born Carlos is the perfect person to accompany her on her trip as translator, but as they travel together from Philadelphia to Santo Domingo to Ponce, two unlikely co-workers will discover that during their three years working together, their feelings for each other have grown far deeper than they ever could have guessed.

And though business-minded, proper Alice will try her very best to ignore the longings of her heart, scorching hot, insanely sexy Boricua, Carlos, has no intention of letting her go.

My Review:

5 Stars!

OMG this book!

Alice Story took a chance three years ago on starting her own company and the man who took a chance and followed her there. Carlos worked in the mailroom at Story Imports, but he wanted more. When Alice Story abruptly quits and offers him a chance at her new company, he trusts her and goes. Over the next three years, Alice works hard to build her business and does so with Carlos by her side as her trusted assistant and friend. Alice trusts him and can’t live without him at work, but Carlos has been in love with her the entire time. When she takes him along on a business trip, he sees his opportunity to show her how he feels and how good it can be.

This book tackles more than just a forbidden office romance. Regnery addresses ethnicity, sexism, and age differences. She weaves a beautiful tale of romance and emotion, of letting go of fear and letting in the people who really matter. The majority of this book is set in a beautiful, tropical backdrop that lends itself to the romance. The road to happiness for Carlos and Alice is not an easy one, largely due to Alice’s own self-doubts.

The writing was amazing, as usual. The story flowed and progressed nicely. I loved the extra attention Regnery paid to the cultural aspects of the book.

This is hands down my favorite Katy Regnery book!

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

Title: The Clover Chapel

Author: Devney Perry

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Clover Chapel:

She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.

 

After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.

 

Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

 

My Review:

5 Stars!!!

Top Read of 2017

I fell in love with this amazing series after reading the first book in the series.  I have been desperately waiting to read book two and it is amazing!
This second chance romance has all the feels.  Nick and Emmy will steal your heart while reclaiming each other’s love.  Their beginning is unconventional and so sweet.  The book skips ahead nine years and reconnects Nick and Emmy.  The story is complicated and involves many plot layers.  The romantic suspense element is nearly perfect.
If you haven’t read this series yet, you must.  It is amazing and engrossing.
Each book can be read as a standalone, but they are interconnected enough that it could spoil a previous book.  Devney Perry is on my favorite authors list.  I can’t wait to read more from her and this series!
