SYNOPSIS

It was the summer of my life.

I’d met the guy of my
dreams.

Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity
employer&
mdash;and very much off

limits.

But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother
would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be
careful.

He never treated me as his mother
did—like hired help.

Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and
loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

 

What a summer it was.

Until it all ended—badly.

 

I was never supposed to see Gavin
again.

That didn’t stop me from thinking
about him every day for ten years.

I knew little about
his life now, just that he
was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

 

When a twist of fate had me working again in
the very place our love affair star
ted a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of
time before I might see him again.

But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?

REVIEW – Oh my gosh, Penelope Ward has wrote an epic romance story spanning years. A romance that never dies but lingers in the background over the years but never stops burning. There is so much romance and angst that comes from this book and it was absolute perfection. This is why i will always pick up a Penelope Ward book. She cocoons you in the story and you do not want to resume daily life, this story and these characters will stay with you a long time after you finish the book. Romantic, sexy and full of longing – perfect summer romance read

Summer Heat – Rachel Van Dyken

Summer Heat Book Cover Summer Heat
Cruel Summer #1
Rachel Van Dyken

Spoiled Princess is what he used to call me.
We were an inferno of hate and passion wound up with a dash of chaos.

For four years I watched him mow my lawn.
For four years I watched my friends make fun of him.
For four years I hated myself for wanting him, but even more for the way I treated him.

And then I had him.
For one night, we put all labels away and I spent the best night of my life in his arms.
Then the next day, with my secret night under lock and key, I looked the other way while my friends shamed him.

But now the jokes on me, because the scrawny lawn boy who I secretly loved from afar is now the director of Hollywoods most exclusive summer camp.

And I’m on his staff.
Now it’s his turn to punish me.
His turn to make me pay.
His turn to take his revenge after years of humiliation.

He’s no longer a boy you can ridicule.
But a college graduate who can have any woman he wants.
I want him to look at me the way he did that one night we had together, but right now
the look in his eyes tells me he’s going to enjoy having me under him for two straight months.
I don’t know where his hatred ends, his passion begins.
All I know is he wants revenge.
And I’m his lucky target.

REVIEW – Loved it so much!! A hot summer read about a second chance at romance if the desire for revenge is not too strong. This book takes sexy and angst to a new level in Rachel’s writing for me. I could not put this book down. I am a sucker for a second chance romance but this one gives added heat and desire as the gulf between the characters is so great to overcome. I cannot wait for book 2 as this book does end on a cliff-hanger, and also i love the cover. Superb summer read while lounging in sun and relaxing it will certainly raise your temperature 🙂

Blurb
Gareth Black is drawn to December Mayson the moment he spots her across
the room at her cousin’s wedding. When he approaches the beautiful woman, she
captivates him with her shyness and wit, making him crave her.
With a pull so strong it’s impossible to ignore, December knows there’s
something between her and Gareth. She just hopes they’re capable of jumping the
hurdles ahead of them.
Two boys, an ex, a surprise that will change everything, and a
disgruntled co-worker, guarantee these two will have their work cut out for
them if they are going to find their happily ever after.
REVIEW – I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever, but oh my it was worth the wait. Aurora knows how to write sexy romances with some angst thrown in and some alpha males to get you swooning hard Now don’t get me wrong sometimes alpha males can be so annoying, but with this book it is just the perfect blend of alpha and emotions. These books feature characters who we have seen before and some new ones, but it can be read as a standalone. For me i just flew through this book as it was exactly what i needed to read and it flowed really well. Great writing and great series

Curveball – Mariah Dietz

Curveball
Mariah Dietz
18th May 2017

 

 

Blurb
Shakespeare believed there was always humor in tragedy and
tragedy in humor.
My life proved his theory as fact.
At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town
to be with the man I loved. The one who was supposed to love and cherish me in
return.
Finding out he had a wife was tragic.
Remaining in love with him in spite of her was more tragic.
My mom and best friend setting me up on a long string of
blind dates was an ongoing tragedy.
Nine years later, I’ve learned to see the humor in most
situations.
My mom and best friend setting me up on disastrous blind
dates.
My son’s jokes.
The fire alarm going off each time I cook.
My constant bright spot always adding to the humor was my
son, Hayden. But when Hayden had a life-threatening allergic reaction, the man
who came to help my little boy became my own savior. His laugh, his smile, and
the way his eyes lit up when he spoke to my son made him a beacon of light in
both our lives.
But I wasn’t the only one who noticed him.
When I began having feelings for the man my best and only
friend had fallen for, I knew following my heart would once again lead to a fresh
round of heartbreak.
Love led me to this town.
Lies kept me there.
Would history repeat itself?

Or had life just thrown me another Curveball?

Review – Holy moly seriously amazing sounding blurb and a book that delivers. A angst filled contemporary romance that had my heart aching and soaring with each chapter. So much depth and emotion is felt between the two central characters. But to fall for someone so much, while your best friend also has an attraction to them can only lead to something exciting to read and this book certainly was that. A great book to start with if this author is new to you,or you have already know her work

Excerpt

“I don’t watch TV at night…” Her voice drifts off, and I know it’s because she realizes I’m going to ask why.And I do.

“You’re going to laugh.”

“Probably.”

“It’s because I can’t hear things.”

“What kinds of things are you trying to hear?”

“I don’t know. Strange noises and things…”

“Strange noises?”

“Do I need to spell it out for you?” She’s trying to sound annoyed, but I can hear the smile in her voice.

“Apparently, because I have no idea what you’re talking about. What kinds of strange noises are you going to hear? I usually turn my TV up to block out all the strange sounds like the neighbor’s kids and the lady behind me that sounds like Fran fucking Drescher.”

“You know who Fran Drescher is?”

“My mother was a big fan of that stupid show she was in. Stop changing the subject. What are you listening for? Hayden won’t sneak out.”

“What if someone breaks in?”

“You’re not serious.”

“Of course I’m serious!”

“What do you do all night?” I ask.

“Work,” she admits. “Well, usually I clean, and then I work.”

“I’m coming over.”

“You can’t.”

The panic in her voice doesn’t make her sound upset about the idea, but afraid.

Is it because she likes me?

“Why not?” I ask.

“It’s like nine o’clock.”

“Are you about to turn orange and sprout a stem?”

“That and I’m not wearing a bra, if you must know.”

“So put it back on.”

“You don’t understand. That’s like saying put your jeans back on.”

“I am in jeans,” I lie just to get a reaction out of her.

“What is wrong with you?” she cries.

“What’s wrong with jeans?”

“They’re stiff and uncomfortable. Wearing jeans all day is basically equivalent to walking on sandpaper. But at least you guys have pockets that will actually hold something larger than a thimble and don’t ride up your ass.”

“If your bra is riding up your ass, we have bigger fish to fry than being afraid of the boogey man.”

Cheater – Rachel Van Dyken

Cheater Book Cover Cheater
Curious Liaisons #1
Rachel Van Dyken
28th February 2017

Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.

But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.

Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.

Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love…

Review – This book had me smiling, like big out grinning. Lucas is a cheater yes, but the reason why and the way it has altered his life and him are interesting to read. I loved Avery she is so spunky and her hatred for Lucas burns so deep, it leads to some inventive moments in the story. A very fun romance story but with the right amount of angst to not make it too sweet and more interesting to see the story develop. I am intrigued to see if more books are released as i feel there is room for this series to develop.
