Teaser's




********


I’d taken half the day off work to spend the afternoon with Madison, but standing here watching her flick through paint chips made me wonder if I should have just let her come on her own. She had six different ones and couldn’t decide which one she liked best. We’d been standing in this hardware aisle, going back and forth over the colours for the past hour. I’d almost had enough but I was sure that she could spend all fucking day doing this.

“Baby, do you think you can narrow it down some more? Like to say, one?” I asked.

She scowled at me. “I knew you shouldn’t have come with me. You have absolutely no patience.”

“I have a lot of patience, but you’ve been trying to decide between these for an hour now.”

“Well, I want to get it right, J,” she muttered, throwing me a dirty look.

“Okay, how about this; if you pick one and hate it after we’ve painted, we can always paint it again.”

Her eyes widened. “Really? You wouldn’t mind?”

“No. So let’s pick one and get out of here.”

A pained look appeared on her face. “I really like two of them.” She held up two and showed me. “Which one do you like?”

I grabbed them out of her hand and inspected them. “This one,” I said, holding up the one I preferred. Fuck, why did women take so long to choose? I did it in three seconds flat.

She snatched them back out of my grasp, shaking her head. “You didn’t even look at them, J.”

“I did, babe. It’s not fucking rocket science.”

She gave me a pointed look. “You have no idea.”

I blew out a breath. “I’m going to go outside and wait for you in the car. You reckon you can be done in five minutes?”

“I’ll be as long as it takes. And you won’t complain if you want more of what I gave you this morning.”

Christ, she had me by the fucking balls. She’d given me the best goddamn head job this morning and I fucking needed more of that shit. “I’ll be in the car, but hurry the fuck up because now all I can think of is your mouth and my cock.” I leaned into her and promised, “I’ll blow your fucking mind when we get home if you’re done in five minutes.”

As I pulled away from her, she curled her hand around my neck to bring me back to her, and murmured, “Baby, you always blow my mind, so there’s no need for me to hurry.”

I shook my head. “Fuck, we’re gonna be here for another hour, aren’t we?”

She held up a paint chip. “This one, J. And I’m not doing any of the work when you blow my mind. This one’s all on you.”

I grabbed the chip out of her hand and headed towards the paint counter. My cock was so hard right now and I figured I could have her under me within fifteen minutes if the dude at the counter hurried his shit up.

Synopsis 


Stacy Hutchins thought she’d finally met the one, until a startling realization that shatters everything...

Mark Jefferson, her undercover DEA agent boyfriend lied about one tiny little detail…his wife and kids. Stacy hates liars and cheaters so she kicks him to the curb. But Mark makes it very clear he will not go willingly.

Has his obsession with Stacy tied them together forever? Or will Mark finally walk away?

Dustin Carmichael swore off women a long time ago, until his sister reconnected with her best friend from high school, Stacy.

But after a perfect month together, a year ago, Stacy played the ‘friends’ card. Unfortunately, they’ve been good friends ever since.

When Stacy's life turns to shambles, Dustin’s more than willing to be there for her. As she tries to get herself together, Stacy finds herself in another dilemma, she can no longer deny the feelings she’s always had for Dustin.

Will her failure to see that Dustin has changed stop them from having something everlasting?


Excerpt


Stacy stood there for a minute enjoying the night. The sun had already set and the trees lining the walk way were decorated with twinkle lights. There weren’t too many people out front milling around as Stacy made her way back towards the doors.

“Stacy?”

She knew that voice and felt her body tense. Stacy slowly turned to see Mark standing next to a tree. He looked better than the last time she saw him, but she still didn’t want anything to do with him.

“What are you doing here Mark? I thought I made it clear that we’re over.” Stacy made sure she didn't get anywhere near him.

He just stared at her for a minute not saying anything. Mark took a step towards her, but she put a hand out to halt him.

“Stop, don’t come any closer. Wait you know what I’m going inside I don’t care why you’re here.” Stacy turned and walked away from him.

“Stacy please I’m sorry. I love you and I’m sorry I hurt you. Please take me back.” Great, now Mark was begging.

“No Mark good-bye.” Stacy turned and walked back into the building. She couldn't be sure, but she swore she heard him yell ‘You’re mine Stacy’.

Synopsis 

Sinning never felt so good…

A fortuitous encounter.

A meeting that should never have happened.

Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever…

Salome knows only one way to live—under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence—the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free.

Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again.

River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life—he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six—much to his rivals’ delight.

Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away.

Styx has one rule in life—never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot… a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go…

Dark Contemporary Romance/New Adult Novel. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up*


My Review


It Ain't Me, Babe... was beautiful, amazing, inspiring and  heart breaking, what Mae, Lilah, Maddie and Bella went through was horrific. Tears come to my eyes when I think of how strong and resilient they are and how absolutely innocently trusting these girls were.

"It Ain’t Me, Babe’ was inspired by the testimonies of ex-members from several NRM’s and the leaders that abused the power they had over their members—especially the women.

The female protagonist in this novel, ‘Salome’, endures situations inspired by real events told to me personally by survivors of such groups. Addressing this topic was very important to me, as it is an area of life, of humanity, in which most people are unaware.

Victims of these ‘opportunist’ groups are often not given a voice, and I wanted to give the many women I was so fortunate to meet, a chance to be heard." - Tillie Cole


I really hope we get to read more books about these brave and inspiring women.

Story... It Ain't Me, Babe starts with River a young boy aged 11 off in a remote part of a forest, his father is the President of the Hangmen MC and is hiding a dead body as River waits by the car.  River gets bored and starts looking around, he spots a huge fence and goes to check it out and stumbles upon a girl on the other side of the fence crying.  River is enamored by her, to him she is the most beautiful thing he has ever seen.  River struggles with his speech, he stutters, he has only ever talked to two people his whole life his father and best friend Ky... until now.  This girl has eyes that have mesmerized River and he is desperate to know who she is.



"Wh-what i-is this p-p-p-place? D-d-do you... l-l-live h-here?" I stuttered, occasionally pausing and thinking through my words as I struggled to push them out." - River



River is forced to leave the fence and leave the girl with the blue piercing wolf eyes. The emotions in this scene blew me away.  I truly felt like I was both River and the girl staring at the other trying to figure out the other person.


Fifteen years later....


That little girl is now a young woman... Salome (Mae).  She is now escaping from the commune and the disciples.  You are in Salome's head while she is running and you are on the edge of your seat, you are yelling, run! dig! you know she is running because something has happened, but you don't know what yet or care, all you care about, is, in your mind helping her escape, giving her courage to keep going.



"I ran along each post - no gaps, no holes... no hope.  In a panic, I fell to the ground, clawing in the dry earth, tunneling, digging for freedom.  My fingers raked at the hard mud - fingernails snapping, skin ripping, blood flowing - but I did not stop.  I had no choice but to find a way out." - Salome (Mae) 



Salome gets badly hurt while escaping and after a long day of running ends up at the back of the Hangmen MC compound, unconscious. She is found by Styx (River), Salome (Mae) is covered in mud and dirt and Styx assumes she is a dead girl dumped there by someone trying to frame the MC for her murder.  But Mae wakes for a moment and then Styx see's her eyes, those wolf eyes. Not believing it could be the same girl, Styx still gets a doctor in to help Mae.



"Fuck me.  Those eyes.  Even through all the blood, mud, and shit on her face, those eyes fuckin' shone - ice-blue, like a goddamn wolfs.  Only seen one pair of eyes like that before..." - Styx 



When Mae wakes she is disoriented and starts to try to leave but runs into Styx and his brothers of the MC. Styx asked her straight out if she remembers him, Mae is confused and scared, her whole life she has been taught that the outside world is a evil, sinful place.  But as Styx and the brothers talk about the girl at the fence Mae realizes this is her River, the boy who saved her that day. She confirms she is who Styx thinks she is and everyone is shocked.  No body actually believed Styx about the girl at the fence, he would look for the fence again, again and again but because it is in such a big forest he never found the fence again.


"I ain't ever seen you like this, brother.  You going soft on me? Bikes and pussy, Styx, that's how we live.  Ride hard; die harder.  Club first, no distractions." - Ky


As the president of the Hangmen MC, Styx knows his lifestyle is hard and brutal and he has a lot of responsibilities.  It's no place for a beautiful innocent woman like Mae who has already overcome so much in her life.  So Styx pushes Mae away.


"I-I'll lay it on the l-line for you, b-babe, I t-trade illegal weapons for c-cash and d-drink far too m-much.  I f-fuck sluts regularly and d-don't commit to no one f-for long, maybe n-n-never will." I made sure I had her full attention for the last part. "I-I've killed p-p-people.  I-I've even l-liked it, and" I knew I was bringing the final death blow - "I'll d-do it again." - Styx


Mae becomes very close to another brother of the MC, Rider. Styx leaves Rider in charge of looking after Mae and keeping her safe against the other brothers, Rider is the only brother Styx will trust with Mae.

Styx can only ever dream of being good enough for Mae and he wants her badly, he's finding himself possessive, protective and obsessed with her.

And so the story continues with gun fights, brutality, death, abuse, rape... SHOCKING SECRETS COME OUT... survival, love, strength, HOT STEAMING SEX! and most importantly in this story, courage.







Does this story have a HEA? Yes it does...

BUT... The ending had me just looking around the room and thinking FUCCCCCCK!!!!!
I want to stop here, even if I went on for ages I still couldn't tell you everything about this beautiful story. Every page, every scene, every moment meant something... broke my heart, shattered my expectations and went above and beyond what I expected from this story.

This is one of the best biker books I have EVER read and with that a unique story entangled with it. 

If you love biker books, sons of anarchy and reading about women overcoming pain, surviving and moving forward from what was so harshly forced upon them, then you will love... It Ain't Me, Babe.

Please Tillie! please write about Maddie and Lilah.

REVIEW: Riveted by M.A. Stone

Reactions: 

Title: Riveted 
Author: M.A. Stone
Genre: N.A. Romance
Publication Date: March 2014
Add to: Goodreads
Purchase Links:  Amazon




Synopsis 


Bleu Drawn had everything she could ever want. A smart and caring fiance, a great job at a software company and a sarcastic, yet loving family miles away in Upstate NY. Until she walks in on her fiance and her boss, reenacting a naked rodeo in HER bed. 
oon she finds herself going back home to her tattooed, crazy, manwhore twin brother, his equally crazy friends and a bunch of bikers who are oddly enough family. 
Add in a disappearing family member, a sexy new coworker and her crazy pregnant aunt and she learns that sometimes falling in love is not planned and that family can make you want to commit homicide!



My Review


Walking in on your fiancĂ© doing the dirty deed with your boss is bound to cause some drama. And drama it does…so much in fact that Bleu lands herself in jail and then finds herself with a job.

With nowhere else to go and no job to go back to, she finds herself on her brother’s doorstep looking for a place to stay. He is happy to help. As her twin, hey have always been very close, sharing everything and sticking up for one another no matter what.

But after some time, when her brother starts acting different and pushing her away, she knows something is wrong. But he will not confide in her, in fact he is downright mean to her and kicks her out of his house and takes off to places unknown leaving everyone worried and wondering what happened to him.

With nowhere to go…she ends up staying with Jack. Jack is her brother’s business partner, friend and coworker at the tattoo shop (where Bleu also works). He is sweet and feels something for Bleu that he hasn’t felt in a very long time.

But Bleu just came out of one horrible relationship and doesn’t know if she can handle being in another. But Jack isn’t giving up and promises to wait for her for as long as she needs. All he is asking for is a chance. Will Bleu be able to open herself up completely and finally give herself to someone in a way she never has?

The story between Jack and Bleu is a mild yet sweet romance. I loved how the interacted with each other but I felt their relationship was missing something. They were pretty happy together but Bleu’s refusal to be honest with him about her feelings threatens their relationship.

I could understand Jacks feelings…to a point but not nearly enough to cause the damage it did.

The majority of the book was Bleu and others trying to figure out what happened to her brother and trying to figure out what could have happened over the last few months that had sent him in a downward spiral.

Axel (the brother), is in some deep trouble and I don’t want to give anything away with the details but I will say that I found his entire situation a bit confusing. It was a great storyline but I found some of the details off or didn’t add up creating a bunch of unnecessary complications.

I also think Bleu repeated herself too much in the book. We would hear the same story every time she explained it to someone new. I just felt it was too repetitive.

Note: This was a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review so I’m not sure if it was a final edited version or not. The copy I received did have many punctuation/spelling errors as well as missing words in it. But like I said, I’m not sure if they were fixed before the publishing or not.

Overall, the storyline was good and I always love a tattooed hottie and this book is filled with them. The next book in the series will follow Aaron, Bleu’s dad who just got out of prison. I really liked him in this book so I’ll be adding his book to my TBR.

Everything





Synopsis 

Love could prove fatal in N.B. Baker’s thrilling debut, Everything. A seductive tale of romance and deception, its twists and turns lead to a shocking finale that proves no secret is left buried forever. 
Ella Stone hasn’t had it easy. Abandoned by her parents when she was an infant, she was lucky to be raised by her grandparents on their vast ranch in Wyoming. But when they both pass away within a year of each other, Ella is forced to think about the future for the first time in her life.
Deciding that her new beginning lies in Detroit with her two best friends, Ella makes the big move. There she meets Hunter, a man whose passion for art immediately fascinates her. Their steamy relationship comes to an abrupt end, however, when she catches him in bed with another woman.
Despite Hunter’s seeming inability to take “it’s over” at face value, Ella struggles to move on. While exploring the city, her coincidental run-ins with a man named Chance St. John seem comical at first. That is, until one night when Chance rescues Ella from a brutal attack—then it seems like fate.
Ella and Chance embark on a whirlwind romance, becoming closer with each passing day. Their passionate exploits both in and out of bed give way to a deeper connection that Ella has never before experienced. But despite his obvious feelings for her, Chance remains tight-lipped about certain areas of his life. His frequent nightmares and inexplicable explosions indicate to Ella that he’s hiding something from his past.
The situation only gets stranger as Ella falls victim to a string of bizarre attacks; it appears as though someone is out to get her.
Danger seems to close in around Ella—little does she know that it is only beginning as Everything builds to an explosive climax. When Chance’s dark past is finally revealed, will it destroy them both?




Ella Stone is looking for somewhere to lay her roots down. After losing everyone in her family and left financially stable for life, she decides to leave Wyoming where her grandparents raised her. She decides to move to Detroit, to be closer to her two best friends Sarah and Justin and start over. 


Ella is returning home early from a recent trip back from Wyoming and decides to surprise her boyfriend early. What she was about to find out was the surprise is on her when she catches him in bed with another women! Ella leaves immediately and never looks back. She shortly recovers from her breakup and she finds it's odd how quickly she gets over him. Her best friend Sarah tells her she will know when the right one comes along because she will feel a "Zing" for them!:)



A couple of months pass and Ella is getting her life back in order. She is so grateful that her friends gave her a place to stay and always have her back. Ella is out one day doing some grocery shopping when she literally runs into the back of someone.



I look up to see where the deep,sexy male voice came from. My gaze traces long, lean legs covered in dark denim; a T-shirt that fits in just a way to emphasize each muscle under it without being too tight, a five o-clock shadow covering a strong jawline, ice-blue eyes, and dark brown hair. I know my mouth is hanging wide open, but I can't seem to close it as I look at this god standing before me.



That's just the first we see of Chance. Ella runs into him again and he ends up saving her from a horrible situation. Ella and Chance start seeing one another and instantly she feels the "Zing" with him. Chance is so different from any man she's met. He's romantic, caring, attentive, loving and affectionate. 
He seemed to good to be true!



Ella and Chance are so amazing together! They can't get enough of each other! These two are hot and heavy in the sheets! They are flirty and playful and everyone around them sees how much these two are falling in love! Ella is waken one night to Chance having a horrible nightmare. When she ask Chance about it she can see the fear and hurt in his eyes.



"El, I don't want to lose you, I care about you, but there are things in my past...dark things. 

Things happened that no one should ever have to experience, to have to live with the rest of their life. I don't have what it takes to share that right now. I don't want to taint you, to taint us. They are my demons, and I will work through them. Being with you, it helps me so much; you have no idea how much. I hope you understand. Please, baby, please understand."



Ella doesn't push him to tell her. She sees how it could tear him apart. So she decides she will show him he can trust her and she will be here for him when he's ready to share, if ever.

Shortly after, Ella's apartment is broken into and vandalized and she starts getting random phone calls from an unknown number. The phone calls turn into threatening voice mails that lead to someone attempting to kill Ella. 



As the story starts turning I couldn't put my kindle down! I love a good romance story with suspense and I wanted to know who was doing this and why? I kept thinking I knew who it was, but I was way off!
 I'm gonna warn you now that when you find out who it is and why, you better grab you a Kleenex because your heart will break!:(  

Oh and the Epilogue!!! Gave me goosebumps and I shed some more tears there too!!



I'm gonna miss Ella and Chance and I loved her best friends Sarah and Justin too! 

They had me cracking up! You will love that couple!

This book made me laugh, sad, happy, cry, shocked, surprised and just Wow!!! 

I definitely recommend this book! You need to take a "Chance" on this book!:)

Fighting Temptation (Men of Honor #1)- Amazon





Synopsis 


“If you could go back and change one moment in your life what would it be?” 
I expect him to say the week the three of them were held prisoner, but what he says 
next is something that I will remember for the rest of my life.
“It would be to find you sooner, because I would have never let anyone hurt you.”
And that was the moment I gave Sawyer Evans my whole heart.

***

At 17 years old Grace Morgan had managed to live through what would be the 
worst day of her life. One would think this is where her torment ended, but then 
she was sent to live with him- the devil himself.

Three years later she finds herself in the beautiful, small town of Sunset Bay, South 
Carolina- a perfect place to start her life over. This is where she meets the best 
friends she will ever have, and one cocky, sexy, arrogant,ex-Navy Seal whose heart 
turns out to be bigger than his ego. Right when things start looking up the worst 
day of her life comes back with a vengeance; ruining the peace she had just found.
Sawyer Evans is a strong, sexy, confident ex-Navy Seal who loves women just as 
much as they love him. His philosophy is: the more the merrier, with no strings 
attached. But all that changes the day he rolls into Sunset Bay, where he meets a 
sweet, sexy blonde with sad amber eyes, who smells like cupcakes and bakes the 
most delicious pies. The only girl who isn’t affected by his good looks and charm... 
or so he thinks. 

But Sawyer is a fighter who is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Grace. 
Along the way of making that happen, he finds out she holds secrets, and a pain 
much deeper than he thought possible- and he has known pain like no other man 
has. 

A year ago he made a life-altering decision that not only bought him a week in hell 
with men he considers his brothers, but also ended his career. It was a decision he 
will never regret, no matter the scars he bares, physically or emotionally. He 
refused to let that moment in his life break him or define him.
So when Grace’s life is threatened, he will make another decision, one to not only 
protect her, but also mend her broken heart. 

This is a New Adult Romance and is told from both character’s pov. Due to strong 
sexual content, coarse language and mature subject matter this book is not suitable 
for anyone under the age of 18. 

This is Book Two in the Men Of Honor series. If you like hot, tattooed, possessive 
alpha males than this is the book for you.

My Review





Holy crispy crust on a “Take My Breathe Away” Pie this was such an Ah-Mazing story! 


I absolutely loved it. I never once found myself getting bored with the story or wishing parts would just be over and done with. In fact, three quarters into it, I thought to myself that I needed to slow down because I didn’t want it to end.

I went from a blubbering mess in the prologue to laughing out loud in chapter one. This story will certainly take you on an emotional journey of heartache, friendship and love.

I really enjoyed Fighting Temptation and I didn’t think anyone could really top Jaxson. The ending to that book will forever be one of my favorite scenes but…

Sawyer Evans has done the unthinkable. 

He has taken Jaxson’s spot at my #1 Man Of Honor! 

 I really doubted his ability to do that but the more and more I got into the book the more and more I fell in book love with him. 

He has an ego the size of Texas which is hilarious and makes for lots of laughs.

He is super sexy…hence is nickname “Sexy Sawyer” 

and

He has fallen for the plain and simple girl with a southern twang that smells like cupcakes and 

bakes pies that are to die for. 


Grace…poor Grace. My heart just broke in a million pieces for her from the very start. She has suffered through so much in the last few years and has kept to herself. But now that she’s in a new town with new people, she is determined to make it on her own. She has dreams, big ones, and she will work her butt off in hopes to someday be able to fulfill them. 

 
She’s not very good at letting people in and besides a couple of girlfriends and Mac, the man she sees as her angel…she’s alone. Then one day Sawyer Evans comes into the diner where she works and there is something about him that has her feeling both terrified and safe all at the same time.

Sawyer is a flirt and he seems to pay extra special attention to Grace. She knows he’s just messin’ with her but that doesn’t affect the blush that creeps up on her face every time he’s around.

And boy does Sawyer love seeing her blush…


Surprisingly, she finds herself opening up to him about things she never thought she would share with anyone.

“All I want is to belong to someone. It’s not right, everyone should belong to somebody.”
The last of her words break out into a sob and cracks my fucking heart right in half.
“You do belong to people, baby, you belong to me, and to Julia, and to Kayla…you belong to us all, Grace.”

Sawyer is determined to get Grace to give him a chance, a chance at what…he’s not sure yet. But he knows there is something special about this girl and he can’t let it go.

She’s his Cupcake…

“Nope, that’s not why you remind me of a cupcake.”

“Oh yeah, then why?”

“Because you’re as cute as a cupcake, you smell as sweet as a cupcake,” his tone drops and turns husky, “and I’ll just bet you fucking taste as good as one too.”

Whoa. All the oxygen gets sucked out of my lungs and my heart kicks into overdrive.
Damn that man is good.

The connection between Grace and Sawyer is undeniable but Grace has a hard time believing a man like Sawyer, a man who could have any woman he wants would be interested in her. But Sawyer is not giving up and he will do what it takes to prove to Grace she can trust him.

When Grace’s past comes back to haunt her, Sawyer takes it an opportunity to implant himself in her life- not only protect Grace but to also show her the kind of man he can be. 



Holy Shizzle on the sexy scenes. W.O.W. There were a lot but they weren't repetitive. I hate when a book is written with a lot of them but they are all written the same...it ends up boring and I find myself skipping lines or paragraphs. Sawyer and Grace definitely were NOT boring.

“I’m going to show you how to do this one day, Grace, show you how to pleasure yourself.”

I gasp when he flicks his wrist and curls his figers inside of me. 
“That’s ok, you can just do it, I think you will be better at it anyways,” I pant out heavily.

We also get to meet Sawyer’s family (who are all so amazing…well for the most part) in this book as well as more of Jax, Julia, Kayla, Cooper, and Cade.


I cannot wait for Cade’s story. He is so quiet and we learn a little more about his past, which is beyond heartbreaking. I can’t wait for him to have a voice and get inside of his head to know what he is thinking.

I love how K.C. Lynn goes from one POV to another. I love how she stays in the same moment but just switch point of view. LOVE THAT! It keeps the momentum and feelings of the story line going.

This is a highly emotional yet fresh and fun story, full of laughter, playfulness, friendship, and love. I loved the transition from sad to happy moments. I can't even count how many times I cried in this book...only to be laughing a paragraph later. That right there makes for an awesome read! 

  


K.C. Lynn had me hooked with Jax in Fighting Temptation but she has stolen my heart with Sawyer in Sweet Temptation. This is a “Forever With Me” kinda book. It’s filled with so many ups and downs that it keeps you on your toes and engaged in the storyline and refuses to let your heart go at any point. 

Simply Amazing.

Synopsis 


Rebecca Andrews knew she was lucky to be hired as a private nurse for an elderly lady who was going on a one-month trip aboard a luxury cruise ship. But there was one big problem. The client was the grandmother of her ex-boyfriend--the guy she was still in love with, the guy who didn't love her back. 

Zach Carmichael couldn't say no to his grandmother's plea to join her on a month-long cruise for her eightieth birthday. But he didn't expect his spritely gran to bring two private nurses with her. One of them happened to be the woman who'd broken his heart--the one he believed lied to him about her feelings. 

Aboard a luxury liner, their passion for each other flared again. Was it just a temporary flame brought about by the romance of being on a cruise? How could they give love another chance when they were both afraid to put their hearts back on the line?




My Review

This is a good in between story. It’s light and fun and has a couple good sexy scenes.

Rebecca was in for a surprise as she joined her client on board a cruise ship for a month long working vacation. She is there to take care of the grandmother of her sexy multimillionaire ex-boyfriend.

What she wasn’t really expecting was for him, Zach Carmichael, to join in on the trip. Now she has to spend the next month trying to stay away from him because she knows that the second they are alone…she wont be able to keep her hands off of him.

And that is a very bad thing…

See 4 months ago, when they broke up, it shattered her.  She actually dumped him because he couldn’t quite return her true feelings for him. Not only that…he usually has an expiration date on his affairs. So before he could get the chance, she ended it and it shattered her to the core.

Zach has a reputation to protect as CEO of the family business he needs to keep his private life…well very private. He cannot risk being in the tabloids and gossiped about. Their family has been through enough in the last few years and so when it comes to “love”…well he just doesn’t do it. That is until Rebecca…his Bec.

The only girl who he thought he could love, crushed him four months ago when she broke things off because he needed more time to think through his feelings. He was devastated but it opened his eyes and he finally saw what he had with Bec was the real deal…

Or so he thought…

The thing about being in an influential family, people will take advantage of you however they can. So when he finds out some disheartening information about Rebecca he knew he could never be with her again.

But with an eighty year old grandma who is to wise beyond her years at the helm of everything, will they be able to find their way back to each other before more damage can be done?

Overall I liked this story and it was well written. I loved all the characters and the next book that comes out is about Rebecca’s friend Sarah and Zach’s brother Jeff. I’m excited to read that one too. 

 My only negative was that almost all of their issues revolved around misunderstandings or miscommunications. Without those there really wouldn't have been much of a storyline.

Like I said before, this is a good go between story, lighter and more fun. Nothing heavy or heartbreaking and I need stories like this sometimes.

About the Author

Ever since I was a young teenager, I have loved reading romance novels. My auntie used to send me boxes of her books and I would devour them one after another.

Every so often, I would read a mystery or a suspense or a paranormal novel as I love those genres too. But romance is still my favourite. :)

For many years, I wrote technical and non-fiction materials for professional use and had only dreamt about writing a novel. Then, one day, after a period of binge-reading sexy romances, I decided to sit in front of my computer and start writing my first fiction book. The result? My debut novel Will To Love, the first in the hot and sexy Lifestyle by Design series. After that, I knew that I would love to tell more beautiful love stories through my books.

I live in Sydney, Australia with my amazing husband who lovingly cheers me on in my journey as a novelist.
