This is Wild ~ Natasha Madison ~ Cover Reveal







Viktor
My parents told me I skated before I walked. When I was eighteen I was drafted into the N.H.L third overall, playing in Los Angeles—the city of dreams. What more could I ask for? I played hard, but eventually, I partied even harder. Five years later I was traded a week after I entered rehab. There was no time for anything except my health and making sure I’d come out on top. I had to be better. There wasn’t another option.
One of the rules of recovery was ‘don’t fall in love’ and I made it a top priority. She was off limits in every single way.
Until it was too late

Zoe
When you grow up surrounded by hockey players you know one thing for sure, I was never going to settle down with one. Heck, I didn’t even know what icing was. I was too busy climbing the corporate ladder, becoming one of the most successful realtors in New York City. I wasn’t interested in dating or anything that got in my way.
First, he was my client and then he became my friend.
One night, one decision, one act can derail everything.
When push comes to shove, I’m only certain that, This is Wild.

Till There Was You by Marie Force

Available Now!

Book Blurb:

  Being an adult has its advantages… Lucas Abbott and his identical twin grew up sharing everything—including a reputation for funny, idiotic behavior. But now that Lucas is ready to shed that lovable-idiot image, grow up and have a real, adult relationship, the joke’s on him. He and his twin have fallen for the same woman. Crushed and hoping a few days on the slopes will work out his frustrations, he heads for Stowe, Vermont. All thought of fun and relaxation flies away as a car spins out in a snowstorm, and his firefighter/paramedic training kicks into high gear. Danielle Rowson is hoping to pick up the pieces and build a new life for herself and her daughter in Vermont. Winding up in a ditch in the middle of a blizzard isn’t part of the plan—and neither is the kind, sexy rescuer whose strong hands pull them to safety. Lucas has been a little kid, a big kid and now an adult—and he discovers that adulting has more than one advantage. Especially when it comes to sharing with Dani and Savannah the one thing that’s his and his alone: his love.

Ms Force is a go to Author for me and has been since I bought my first kindle many moons ago. Til There Was You is a sweet return to the Abbot family in Butler, VT focusing on on e of the younger siblings, Lucas.
One of the challenges with this series is the extremely large secondary cast and Ms Force impressed me with the way she merged Lucas’s siblings (and there spouses) into the story without them take over. This story remained Lucas and Dani’s story with depth and color added by the extended family that needed to be there.
It was easy to like and root for Lucas, Dani, and Savannah. It was nice to see him mature and learn to place someone else’s feelings before his own. For Dani, her challenges were relatable and I found her desire to prove she could care for herself and daughter on her own appealing. Having both of them come at things from a place of wanting to be the best Lucas and Dani they could made me hope for their happy ending.
If you have followed the Abbot family, you will be glad to see some familiar faces and see where they are now. If this is your first visit to Butler, don’t worry- this story is a stand alone and you will fit right in. I am glad to see this series make a reappearance as it is always well written and entertaining- I am curious to see what happens for the remaining brothers.

The Lemon Sisters ~ Jill Shalvis ~ New Release and Review

The Lemon Sisters Wildstone - Book 3
By: Jill Shalvis
Avon Books – June 18, 2019 


Blurb 

Brooke Lemon has always led the life she wanted, wild adventures—and mistakes—included, something her perfect sister, Mindy, never understood. So when Mindy shows up on Brooke’s doorstep in the throes of a breakdown with her three little kids in tow, Brooke’s shocked. Wanting to make amends, Brooke agrees to trade places with Mindy, taking the kids back to Wildstone for a few days so she can pick up the pieces and put herself back together. What Brooke doesn’t admit is she’s just as broken …also how does one go home after seven years away? It doesn’t take long for Brooke to come face-to-face with her past, in the form of one tall, dark, sexy mistake. But Garrett’s no longer interested. Only his words don’t match his actions, leaving Brooke feeling things she’d shoved deep. Soon the sisters begin to wonder: Are they lemons in life? In love? All they know is that neither seems to be able to run far enough to outpace her demons. And when secrets surface, they’ll have to learn that sometimes the one person who can help you the most is the one you never thought to ask.

Review Copy Provided by Author


In the well written and dynamic Lemon Sisters, Ms Shalvis brings us back to California coastal town of Wildstone where we get to spend time with Mindy and Brooke as they get their lives back on track.

The sisters are both interesting characters and at first glance to the outside world they have their lives together. As we meet them, the appearance of perfect finally becomes too much and we see them reconnect and start to heal the wounds that haunt them both.

I genuinely liked both Mindy and Brooke and found myself relating to both of them at different parts of the story. The idea of "nobody picks on my sister but me" rang completely true and the evolving relationship for the sisters was entertaining to watch.

Add in the love interests of Linc (for Mindy) and Garrett (for Brooke) and we get a realistic portrait of just how complicated relationships can be and the fact that even good marriages need care and attention.

Overall, the Lemon Sisters is a thoughtful looks at relationships of all kinds told with Shalvis' characteristic humor. This is the third book in the Wildstone series, but it is a complete stand alone. The connection here is community of Wildstone itself. If you have read the previous books, you will see references to places and characters that we have met previously, but reading the series is definitely not a necessity. Ms. Shalvis is a go to author for me and this book just cements that position.

Caroline Carruthers thinks she buried her dreams along with the love of her life…until a stranger named Celeste dares her to chase a dream all on her own. Moving to Redemption, Texas, is chapter one in Caroline’s new life story. Opening a bookstore is the next. Finding love is the last thing on her mind as she settles into this new place called home. But when she meets a handsome, soulful man who’s also starting over, all bets are off.

to reach a happily-ever-after

Sure, he used to believe in love—he even has the old song lyrics to prove it—but the Jackson of today is all business. That is, until a beautiful young widow who’s moved to town inspires a change of heart. Could it be that the myth of Redemption’s healing magic is true…and Jackson and Caroline can find a second chance at a happy ending after all?

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Review Copy Provided by Publisher via Net Galley


This series continuation/trilogy beginner was decently written but fell a bit flat for me.

Ms March has a large cast of characters from previous series. The McBride cousins trilogy seems to be bringing the Callahan worlds and Eternity Springs worlds together in a new setting.

Jackson McBride and Caroline are a couple that I liked and enjoyed spending time with. I actually wanted more of their story. Unfortunately, the need to world build and the large secondary cast seemed to overtake the Jackson/Caroline story.

Jackson to me is a bit of a cautionary tale for authors with a large body of work - at some point, start fresh. Tying multiple long running series together in a new work makes things a bit hard to follow. I wanted to know more about Jackson, Caroline, and how they dealt with their relationship struggles as new businesses began to grow. The first book in the trilogy may not have been the best time to bring in such a large secondary cast.

I am curious about Boone and Tucker, the other two cousins, but I am not sure I will be running out to get their books on release day.
