Love Me Today by A.L. Jackson ~ New Release & Review

Love Me Today by A.L. Jackson is now live!

 

A jaded single dad. A woman returning to her small-town roots. Neither was prepared for their paths to collide…

I should have known I was in trouble when I backed my old, beat-up truck into the shiny Range Rover.

The driver looked like a gorgeous fallen angel – one who’d been booted right out of paradise for being a giant prick.

Good thing I’ll never have to see him again.

Except when I show up for my new job to teach a little girl how to ride her horse, I find the same icy blue eyes glaring back at me.

Paisley Dae is completely reckless. She’s also the best trainer in this small town. And Evelyn gets the best.

Protecting the little girl is my one focus.

Only the sassy trainer in her cut-offs and cowgirl boots quickly gets under my skin. Distractions are dangerous, but she soon becomes everything I crave.

One reckless night of giving in, and Caleb and I spiral into a web of passion.

But when I begin to unravel the secrets hiding in this place, I find there is more riding on this job than I thought.

Caleb and Evelyn are worth any sacrifice – only Caleb has to decide what he will sacrifice for me…

Review Copy Provided by Author


Ms. Jackson brings her own unique storytelling style to a brand-new community and a group of family and friends. We discover Time River, CO with Paisley as she returns to town after breaking up with a boyfriend. She is healing and looking to reestablish forgotten goals and reconnect with friends. A run-in (literally) with Caleb sets her on a path she didn't expect. Caleb is new to town, he moved to Time River to be near his cousins and protect his niece.

From the beginning, Paisley and Caleb nearly make the Kindle steam with their chemistry. I appreciated the pace Ms. Jackson used to allow both characters to evolve and develop the ties that bind them to each other and the community. The secondary cast is fairly small, but they all help move our main characters in the directions they need to go.

Love Me Today has several important themes. There is a redemption story, an excellent intrigue element, and the idea that family is where you find it. Ms. Jackson weaves all of these together with the romantic element for a seamless experience that keeps the readers on their toes from page 1. Since this is the first book in the Time River series, there is also an element of world-building. That could be distracting, but it's not. As we leave Paisley and Caleb, I am curious to see what happens next in town.

An Amored Heart ~ R C Boldt ~ New Release & Review

RULE #1: Do not catch feelings for the man who doesn't believe in love.

An Armored Heart by RC Boldt is now live!

Four months. That's how long I'll need to pretend to be Steele Cunningham's doting girlfriend.

I agreed to this insanity only to save my restaurant. He's doing it because he needs someone outside his "social circle" to stick it to his meddling parents and clingy ex.

Ruthless and emotionless in both his personal life and his career, Steele's ego rivals his net worth.

Operating on joy and positivity—and a healthy bit of feistiness—I challenge him at every step.

He's a tin man—heartless and cold. Falling for him would be a colossal mistake, because there's no chance he'll ever love me.

He can't.

After all, he's the man with an armored heart.

Review Copy Provided by Author


An Armored Heart is a different (lighter) type of book than recent Boldt books and I loved it. Ella and Steele are interesting characters and their journey from beneficial arrangement to friends to more was heartwarming to see.

Ms Boldt delivers as well written, multilayered story with these two. We see great friendships, personal evolutions, and certain demons slayed.

The secondary cast here adds a lot too. Not only is there a villain element, but the friendships surrounding our main characters help them navigate they journey.
Ella’s nickname for Steele here is “tin man” - as I finished the story, I could definitely see the homage to the Wizard of Oz.

This is another winner for RC Boldt and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Troublemaker ~ Jessica Peterson ~ New Release & Review

The Troublemaker by Jessica Peterson is now live!

Brooks Huntley is the last guy on earth I should ask to take my virginity.

He’s a decade older than me. Lethally hot. And so far out of my league it’s not even funny. The biggest downside to my plan, though?

Brooks is my older brother’s best friend.

I see Brooks every day when I deliver muffins to his office. With his swaggering confidence and sexy smirk, it’s no wonder I’ve always had a crush on him. But I’m not looking to cause any trouble—at first. I just want to give my V-card a long-overdue swipe.

Too bad I have no game when it comes to picking up guys—but Brooks is a master at charming the pants off women. While Brooks himself is off-limits, who better to study for tips on how to get laid?

When he offers me a weekend away at a five-star resort as thanks for satisfying his sweet tooth, I say yes—with the caveat that he comes too. That way I can watch him in action. He counters with a caveat of his own: he’ll come, but my brother can never find out.

On our secret getaway, I do my best to learn from Brooks and take someone new home. But I fail so miserably that Brooks steps in and kisses me “to show me how it should be done.”

And can I tell y’all, I just melted.

Now can I convince him to show me how everything should be done?

Welcome back to the trading floor of A&T in Charlotte! This time we are spending time with Brooks and Greer in this slightly unexpected friends to lovers romance.

These two characters are just plain fun and I loved seeing their evolution. The format of this story was also entertaining as the conflict element is woven through out. The growth of Brooks and Greer as individuals and as a couple is spicy and sweet. Their interaction and support of each other had me invested and rooting for their happy ever after.

There is a small secondary cast that adds to the world around A&T as well helping Brooks and Greer along their way. Ms Peterson delivers a fun, feel good read that had me invested and looking forward to what comes next from our traders!

Along Come Charlie ~ S L Scott ~ New release & Review

❤️❤️ HOT NEW RELEASE ❤️❤️

We are excited to celebrate ALONG CAME CHARLIE by S.L. Scott is LIVE!
#1ClickHere Amazon & Kindle Unlimited: https://geni.us/CharlieAm

Audible: https://geni.us/CharlieAudible

Paperback: https://geni.us/CharliePaperback

Goodreads: https://geni.us/CharlieGR


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author S.L. Scott brings the charm and romance, smiles and laughs to Along Came Charlie. This friends-to-more novel is packed with heartfelt emotion reminiscent of the best of chick lit of the past with a modern twist for today’s readers.
I’ll be your date, and you’ll be mine.
Who says a funeral can’t be romantic?
Okay, everyone. Including myself.
That doesn’t stop the rumor mill from turning when I show up with a beautiful redhead on my arm.
That redhead also just happens to be a stranger, relatively speaking. Charlotte Barrow and I have run into each other a few times—on the subway, at a bar, and now on our way to separate funerals. Instead of the prodigal son who let his parents down showing up alone, I
traded favors and brought a date. The deal made sense at the time.
You be my date, and I’ll be yours.
Who knew bringing a date to your ex-fiancĂ©’s funeral would cause such a stir? Technically, I did.
I invited him anyway for moral support. It didn’t hurt that he was handsome. The cold-hearted stares that greeted us didn’t matter. We found comfort in each other and formed a friendship from there. Charles Adams was nothing like my ex. The pressure wasn’t
there to be anyone other than who I was. He also loved my cupcakes as much as I enjoyed his company.
I always dreamed of finding my soul mate, and then along came Charlie. My perfect match was right here all along. Did I realize it too late?

Ms Scott brings back one of her first novels in this refreshed Along Came Charlie.

This is a sweet read that focuses on two people who meet at the most unlikely of situations and while attracted to each other they focus on being friends.

The story that follows shows the developing friendship while both characters struggle with the idea of wanting more. They both evolve and I found myself rooting for them to find their respective happy endings.
The secondary cast is relatively small, but they do help guide our pair along their journey.

It was entertaining to read this first effort by Ms Scott. Loyal readers can see her style in the book, but also see the changes in her story telling style when comparing this to more recent reads.

Review Round Up ~ May 10




New(er) Releases:

Limited Edition Husband (Winner Takes All, #4)Limited Edition Husband by Lauren Blakely

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copy Provided by Author

This is a series from Lauren Blakely that I haven't read before, but had no problem meeting Nate and Hunter and becoming invested in them as individuals and as a couple.

Both Nate and Hunter are interesting characters and we have several classic tropes going here. There is the professional athlete/normal professional, slightly older/wealthier vs "average", wounded by previous relationship, oopsie marriage of convienience.

With all of this going in, it could easily be too much, especially when you pull in a fairly large tangental cast. Ms Blakely balances everything well and blends a story that is entertaining, has a slight agnst, and characters that we root for to figure it out.

My only real complaint..... Nate and Hunter are just too ..... good. They aren't perfect and they occassionally mess up, but not really. Even when they are frustrated or have misunderstandings, they seem to resolve them quickly and with minimal fuss. It make for a sweet read, but makes it harder to imagine them as real people.

Overall, this was fun to read and I am curious about some of the other characters we see in the series.

Amazon


The Little Flower Shop (Indiana Summers Series, #2)The Little Flower Shop by Lori Foster

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's time

Review Copy Provided by Author

Ms Foster brings us back to Cemetery, IN in this sequential addition to the series. This time we get to spend time with Emily and Saul (previous secondary characters) as well as meeting new characters.

This is a sweet book that has feel good themes woven throughout. Of the characters we spend the most time with, Emily evolves the most. It’s not that she really needed the change, she just needed someone to take the blinders off to really see the world around her.

In the well-written story, Ms Foster shows us different types of love. That of friends, family, and community in addition to budding romantic relationships. We also see the power a good friend can have in opening up a wounded heart.

The Little Flower Shop is a “perfect” feel-good read and I am curious to see if we get to know Cemetery better in the future.

Runaway Love ~ Melanie Harlow ~ New Release

Runaway Love by Melanie Harlow is now live!

Yes, I'm a single dad who needs a nanny for the summer.

But hire the stranded runaway bride who shows up on my doorstep in a wedding gown with no references, no skills, and no experience?

No one is that desperate.

Except within twenty-four hours, down-on-her-luck Veronica Sutton manages to charm my kids, my family, and half the population of Cherry Tree Harbor into believing she's perfect for the job.

And for me.

It's not that I can't see the appeal-those baby blue eyes? The endless legs? That mouth made for trouble? But I've got enough on my plate, raising two kids on my own and keeping the family business alive. I don't have the time or the inclination to fall for an outspoken city girl.

So I should have kept my hands to myself.

Holding her in my arms was a big mistake. Even worse? Spending the night together. She ignites a possessive fire in me that I'm finding hard to snuff out.


But the most unforgivable? Growing attached to the sound of her laugh, the scent of her skin, and the way her body wraps around mine in the dark.

At the end of the summer, she'll be gone.
And if I'm not careful, she might run away with my heart.
