No one said love was easy. No one said love was perfect. No one said love didn’t hurt. No one said love would last forever.
Follow these characters from your favorite Lyssa Layne books as they experience Valentine’s Day in an unexpected, non-traditional fashion…
Love is a Fire/Burst Into Flame – Andy Garrity lost the love of his life almost three years ago. Giving in to his daughter-in-laws, he decides it’s time to get back in the saddle and go on a first date for the first time since high school. Before he even meets his mate, Andy’s having second thoughts and ready to pass on this opportunity at love.
Everybody’s After Love/My Favorite What If – James Paul and Brianna Rossi are expecting their second child in less than a month. Brianna can’t wait to have a daughter while James Paul is thrilled to have a new princess to spoil. Brianna has the perfect day planned for her husband until she’s blindsided in a way she never imagined.
Loved by the Linebacker – Recovering from a torn ACL, Blake Purser isn’t used to taking it easy. He also isn’t used to not having his best friend, Camila Lemos, spend more time with her boyfriend and his brother Evan than him. His long-time on-again, off-again girlfriend, Molly Feiser, is doing her best to entertain him during the off season but Blake isn’t prepared for her latest news.
Holding the Other – Lee Maverick and Miranda Wallen are the king and queen of country music. The married couple have ruled the charts for the last ten years and fans love the chemistry between them. Before the night is over, this Valentine’s Day will be one for the records.
My Favorite What If – Sloan Talbott and Jacob “Smitty” Smith are spending their first Valentine’s Day as a couple. In the short time they’ve been together, they’ve carved out the perfect nook for just the two of them. Having spent the last six months in Italy, it’s time they head back to the States and learn to be together with their meddling families surrounding them 24/7.
Love’s not easy. Love’s not perfect. Love hurts. Love doesn’t last forever. Can these couples endure love at its ugliest or will it break them down more than they can endure?

 

EXCERPT

Sloan fingers walk up my chest, grabbing my shirt and forcing me to look down at her. Her eyes glimmer with sensuality and I know exactly where her mind is going. Leaning down, our lips barely touch and the passion is ignited. With a shrill squeal, I scoop her into my arms as though we’re newlyweds about to cross the threshold for the first time. Sloan nibbles on my neck and I moan as I walk us toward the bedroom, ready to christen our new bed.

“You gonna give me the chance to marry you and do this for real?” I ask, already knowing the answer.

“Not a chance in hell.”

I chuckle as I set her on the bed, tugging my shirt off. “I’ll get you to change your mind some day.”

Sloan pulls her own shirt off, leaving me licking my lips at the sight of her in just a black lacy brassiere. Teasing me, she runs her index finger from her collarbone between her breasts, licking her lips and keeping direct eye contact with me. The tip of her finger slips inside her bra and I bite my lip, wanting to replace her hand with mine, but am way too turned on by her own handiwork to stop her.

“Maybe one day, when we’re old and gray,” Sloan says, drawing out her words and speaking in barely a whisper.

She stands up, wiggling her hips and pushing her pants to the floor. Now she’s in just her black lace bra and thong. She turns her back to me, crawling over our king size bed and I reach out, running my hand over her perfectly tight runner’s ass. Sloan stops moving forward, placing her hand on top of mine and leaning up on her knees. Her back is against my chest, our bodies flush against each other’s and I squeeze my hand tightly around the handful in my touch.

“I don’t want easy right now, Smitty. I want you, me, and passion.”

angies-review

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I have got to say I have never read anything from this author so to me this was a GREAT introduction to her writing and even possible books I will want to read later!

Love is a Fire/Burst Into Flame – This story is a great look at the family dynamic of today’s families.  There are your biological kids and your “adopted” kids .  WE are seeing teen preganancies plus extended families.

Andy is being set up by one of his daughter-in-laws to meet Tricia. That part of the story was sweet but to be honest I so want to read about Katy and Nick.  I loved the glimpse we got into this man and his children after the love of his life has passed.

Everybody’s After Love/My Favorite What If – OMG this story….we are so excited to see this family of three growing to be a family of four.  The arrival of the baby is so wanted in one family while another pregnancy is not wanted in another part of their family.  The story line was so amazing and so sad at times but it also is a topic that needs to be addressed as this issue recently occurred to a friend of mine!!!

Loved by the Linebacker – Blake and Molly are hiding out from the prying eyes of the world.  His brother is dating his best friend Camilla.   When the two can finally be together to Valentine’s Day, there is a lot that both characters are hiding from the other…….*Que music*

Holding the Other – Lee and Miranda are a couple who have fallen into the marriage rut.  Sex has lost its excitement.  It’s just a perfunctory.  This Valentine’s Day everything chances when the couple have to face where they are and where they’re headed.

My Favorite What If – Sloane and Smitty are spending their first Valentine’s Day back in the USA.  They have been in a “honeymoon” period without any nosy family members around to disturb their new relationship.
