X and I were probably doomed from the start.That’s what happens when you meet in court-mandated group therapy and then try
to steal from him to pay off your blackmailing drug dealer. Former drug
dealer, thank you very much. I’m turning over a new leaf and all that.Which is why I should leave him alone.

Except he tempts me to do things I swore I’d stop doing. It’s that whole gruff,
grumbly, anti-social thing he has going on. Him, flame. Me, moth. Something
about him calls to me, makes the blood hum in my body. And I don’t want that
feeling to end.

Lucy Connors is straight-up insane.

She looks like a Disney princess and tries my patience in more ways than I
thought possible. Besides the fact that I have to save her cute little ass from
jail, I can’t quite figure out how to leave her alone. Even when she’s trying
her hand at Breaking and Entering. Especially when it’s myhouse
she’s burglarizing.

Yeah, we were probably doomed from the start.

But that’s the thing about being hooked on something so good, and so bad for
you—you don’t walk away when you should.

 

Karla Sorensen
Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. I’m a writer who wants to make people smile when they read my words. I own a dog that sheds roughly eighteen pounds of hair every day. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.

I am a wife
to one and a mom to two humans and one cat. I have a deep and abiding love for
nachos – especially the kind with the liquid cheese, like from Taco Bell
(sorry). I run on less than four hours of sleep thanks to copious amounts of
Diet Coke. (Note: this paragraph is not sponsored by anyone except my hungry
stomach.) 
 
As a Navy
brat, I grew up all over the country, from California and up the east coast
from Florida to New England and Colorado. I currently live in Idaho, where we
have lots of potatoes and windmills. 
 
I write
character-driven contemporary romance novels, heavy on the emotional
connection. I LOVE love. I love writing about broken characters who find their
soul mates. 

Bad Deeds: A Dirty Money Novel – Lisa Renee Jones

Bad Deeds

Would you bleed for the one you love?

To save his family empire from the grip of the drug cartel, Shane is pushed to the edge of darkness, forced to make choices he might never make. His father is dying. His brother is desperate to rule the empire and this means war and all gloves are off. His brother only thought he knew what dirty meant. Shane is about to give it new meaning. There is another war brewing though, and that one, is inside him, his battle between right and wrong, light and dark, and in the heat of the night, it is Emily he turns to for escape. Driving her to new limits, pushing her to accept a part of him that even he cannot.

In every one of Shane’s seductive demands, Emily can taste and feel, his torment, his struggle to save his family and not lose himself. But he is losing himself, and that is a problem just as dangerous as her secret, that still lurk in the shadows, a threat to the Brandon Family waiting to erupt. No matter where she and Shane have traveled, or will travel in the future, she can’t just sit back and watch him become everything he hates, everything he never wanted to become, everything she tried to save him from when she tried to run. It could be their undoing, the end. His end.

This is war, blood will spill, and someone in the heart of the Brandon family will not survive….

Review – More scintillating sexy times as well as more danger and suspense. Plenty of moments of quiet and reflection between Shane and Emily then boom, the story blows up and it gets action packed. I did like reading more of some of the the other characters like Derek, it was good to see more of them and their interactions. I will say this book ends on a cliff hanger, but this is a a series you need to read from the start and you will be glad you did,so do not panic. I have full faith the author is going to deliver with another great book in the series.

True Love at the Lonely Hearts Bookshop – Annie Darling

True Love at the Lonely Hearts Bookshop Book Cover True Love at the Lonely Hearts Bookshop
Lonely Hearts Bookshop #2
Annie Darling
18th May 2017

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a good job, four bossy sisters and a needy cat must also have want of her one true love. Or is it?

Another delightful novel from the author of The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts. Perfect for fans of Lucy Diamond and Jenny Colgan

Verity Love – Jane Austen fangirl, manager of London’s first romance-only bookshop Happy Ever, and an introvert in a world of extroverts – is perfectly happy on her own (thank you very much), and quite happy hiding in the office and lying to her friends about her fictional boyfriend Peter, whose presence is very useful for getting her out of social events.

But when a case of mistaken identity forces her to introduce a perfect stranger as her boyfriend, Verity’s life suddenly becomes much more complicated.

Because ‘Peter’ is actually Johnny, and he too could use a fictional girlfriend. So against her better judgement and because she can’t stand sitting on the sad singles table, Verity and Johnny decide to partner up for a summer season of weddings, big number birthdays and garden parties, culminating in her sister’s Big Fat Wedding.

And by the end of the summer, there’s a bad case of heartache that even Verity’s beloved Pride And Prejudice might not be able to cure…

Review – Now i am going to be honest, the cover of this book did not get my attention. Usually i like a cover with real people on, not drawings. what drew me in is the blurb of the book. A female lead who does not need romance but feels the need to lie about it, and instead of a man sweeping in to rescue her, he comes in needing her help as well. A fun and light read but it was great to read something quite different to what i would normally pick up. This books story had me smiling and routing for the characters especially Verity.

Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you the second installment of an addictive romantic mythology series where love is the ultimate game, and Aphrodite always wins.

cover-wrap-shift

Cover Designer: QuirkyBird Designs

Photographer: Lauren Watson-Perry

Synopsis:

Even the gods cannot betray the will of the stars.

It’s been a hundred years since she’s warmed my bed, a hundred years spent waiting for her. Now we’ll compete again in a game that matters little to me. But my prize is far greater than a token to be paid for a favor — I want her.

And for the first time in a very long time, I have the chance to keep her.

Because now the ground has shifted, tilted in my favor, and with her footing unsteady, she will fall.

I will catch her.

This time, I won’t let go.

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine – Gail Honeyman

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine Book Cover Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
Gail Honeyman
4th May 2017

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. 

Then everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living–and it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Review – Eleanor is brilliant, the way she is described though she is awkward she is so lovely as well. She is going about her carefully constructed life in a way that does not harm anyone to any great degree. So when her and Raymond meet, the story gets another kick in how Eleanor and Raymond differ. But the coming together of these two characters and how they help out another individual brings us a story that is at times funny, touching and just an enjoyable summer read
