Jason “Cobra” Stanley was born to fight. With a father like his, he had to toughen up just to survive. Now Cobra tries to take out all of his frustration, all of his anger, and all of his pain in the MMA cage. But after he receives one too many hits to the head during a match with Jagger Caldwell, the cycle of violence comes to a screeching halt. Cobra wakes up in the hospital, under the care of a nurse whose blond hair shines like a halo—and whose pure heart touches him on the deepest level.
Lorraine Bosch is a fighter too. Having escaped from her own controlling father, she prides herself on remaining professional, despite the chaos in the ER. But Cobra is the ultimate distraction. Lorraine knows she should run away screaming from his rippling muscles and shattered psyche. And yet how can she deny this broken man a second chance—especially since she knows exactly what he’s been through? Lorraine’s used to playing guardian angel. Now it’s her turn to find heaven in Cobra’s arms.

In 2002 four planes disappeared over Western Wisconsin, thirteen years later one has requested landing privileges.
Jocelyn ‘Joss’ Randall is on a time crunch. A business trip to Detroit already had her plane bumped an hour and for some reason the plane is taxiing on the runway forever when they finally land in Minneapolis. Her seatmate is annoying her with fears of missing her connection and all Joss wants is to see her baby Molly and get to a birthday party for her niece. The last thing she expected was a week in Detroit would feel like a decade.
Carlton Randall is finally to the point of moving on with his life. His teenage daughter Molly is yearning for independence and his long distance girlfriend Carrie has been transferred to Minneapolis. Things are falling into place for his grief to end. The
loss of his wife, with no remains to claim left him questioning for years. Accepting the mysterious loss only to have the woman appear. Young, unchanged and with no understanding how her one-year-old is now fourteen.
Distance between Joss and Carlton isn’t a new thing, but when he refuses to touch her, looks a decade older and refers to her as an it, not a his wife, the divide is growing. Strange language, lost thoughts and dreams in the form of memories haunting Joss does not help the situation.
Is the man haunting her dreams truth or fiction? Has she learned a language never heard before by anyone on Earth? And if this dream world is real, is that where more than her heart lies?
I received this ARC from Booksprout in exchange for an honest review.
What a whirlwind! With Fate at its finest and glitches in the system, this is an insane story that is gripping with so many twists. You will remain completely engaged from beginning to end. One night Joss’ plane disappears without a trace along with 3 others. 13 years later she reappears completely unchanged, and the details of the other planes keep changing. She finds that she is haunted by a strange man from a strange place, and she keeps speaking crazy weird words in a language that no one knows. She feels like she is going crazy. Her husband, Carl, had finally come to terms with Joss being gone, he is raising a teenage daughter that reminds him everyday of Joss, and has a new love in his life that he truly feels at peace with. Now Joss and Carl are all over the place with their emotions. They both know that they were drifting apart before Joss left but what now? How do you move on from this? Move forward? Their story completely pulls at your heartstrings. They both truly found themselves when they were apart, and the hard part is what do they do now? What about their teenage daughter, Molly? There are a million questions, incredible emotions, a great cast of diverse characters, with crazy incredible settings. Oh, I didn’t mention the ending….one helluva ending! Wowza! I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

This review is for Mary Martel – Charmed
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
This was a great quick read and I would love more of this would and clover and her guards.
Clover took off as a teen left everything and everyone she knew. She was the Alpha’s daughter and wheat she endured she felt would have crumbled the pack. After being away for several years she feels the called to take her place as Alpha.
Upon arriving home Clover realizes a few things. First, her pack still loves her and still has her back. Not only do they have her back but her daughter, Rosie’s too. Her dad knew she would return and placed three men as her guards.
There was instant chemistry between Clover and the three guards. Gunn, Price and Black have known Clover was the one before she ever arrived home. I enjoyed reading about this pack not only Clover, Rosie, and the guys but also her aunt Layla. I loved that Rosie nicknamed Black the silver one and wrapped all three of them around her little finger. This was an enjoyable read but really would like more.
Losing a parent lift a hole inside your chest that never healed, no matter how often you tried to plug it up. The pain faded in time, but it never fully went away. Some memory would crop up out of the blue and hit you right in the feels. Next thing you knew, your ass would be on the floor bleeding form an invisible wound.

Then she started her new business across the street from mine.
The one woman who always got under my skin, who pushed me to be better. Lyndee was my biggest rival in school and my biggest regret.
Now, she’s in town, and as much as I try, I just can’t stay away.
I want her.
A new start: that’s what Stewart Grove means for me and my brother. He’s the one who pushed me to take the chance on opening my own bakery. I am ready for the long hours, the grueling schedule, and the hard work it will take to be successful.
I wasn’t at all prepared to come face-to-face with the man across the street.
An almost kiss in college with the world’s most infuriating man has haunted me for the last decade. Now Jasper’s here, and I don’t think I can resist him.
Things are about to heat up in and out of the kitchen.

Then her husband brought two slaves into the house. That was the end of that. Divorce achieved, Valerie is working on her goals. Friends: has a new one. Fitness: little muscles! Finances: in the black.

Until his past surfaces, shattering his new life and the love he’d hoped to win.
I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
What I love about this series is how I appreciate the men are not the young strapping Doms but they are seasoned men who know what they want. They have been through it all and are in the prime of their lives. As I get older, I am beginning to appreciate a man who knows what he wants, who he is, and what he will do with his live. The fact all of Cherise’s Dom fall into this category makes my reading even better.
Valerie and Ghost AKA Finn. They are two professors who enjoy the lifestyle. Valerie has learned she is a very eager masochist while Ghost is the very eager sadist to teach her the ways of it all. The two should have it easy but conflict arises. Valerie had a WONDERFUL DB of an ex who put a lot in her head. His treatment is what is causing Ghost so many difficulties. Ghost on the other had also has some issues with his past like many of the other doms. The two have a lot to fix in themselves before they can fully open up to what could be with the other.
As always, I love catching up with my old favorites form the series and see how life has progressed for them. This book doesn’t disappoint me at all.
A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, alpha males, and absolutely sizzling sex.
I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.
We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)
Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.
What if it doesn’t? What if knowing the truth is worse than the lie and believing what you’ve always been told is the best thing for you?
What would you do if you discovered the lie? Would you question it, even if the answers will turn your world upside down?
I’ve lived my entire life believing one thing, and in a single moment it all changed. The people I trusted most betrayed me and sent me down a path I never expected to take with someone I never knew I needed.
The truth does not always set you free, sometimes it changes you forever.
I was given this book for an honest review by the author.
To say I am thrilled to be back in the world of this family is to be an understatement. I fell in hardcore love with the parents of the main girl, Riley, in this story. To see her grown up and learning about her past was an exciting prospect. The other main character, Caleb, was the son of another crazy couple’s story. I was super excited to see how he grew up. You want to know their back story, then read the parents’ stories!!
Riley grew up with the best dad every…or did she. She finds something that makes her question if Wes really does love her. She cannot believe she has been lied to her entire life. She demands her friend for life/current possible love interest help her get to the bottom of this new surprise in her life. Her demands lead them on a cross country chase for answers and makes her daydream about possible new outcomes to her life.
Caleb is seriously the sweetest, kindest person in the world. He loves Riley and will do anything for her including following her hairbrained scheme to travel across the USA to find an answer to her question. He is supportive and does everything to make her happy all the while keeping in touch with family back home. He is also worried about her crazy plan but the good boyfriend in him needs to keep her safe.
Riley was not my favorite character. I did not connect with her and felt Caleb deserved better than her a lot of the time in the novel. Caleb was always doing things to make everyone happy and this caused him the one things that made him happy….Riley. I don’t know if the fact I don’t read lot of NA novels is maybe why I didn’t connect with her.
I loved catching up with the families and can’t wait for Easton because he is a little shit started for sure.
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
This series is about the kiddos from Heather’s Broken Series. The series starts with Caleb and Riley. They were friends growing up but not so much now. Riley is trying to get through a breakup and things are just not going her way. She realizes Caleb is working for her dad at the gym and she finds out a family secret all the summer before she leaves for college.
Riley is on a mission to go on a road trip to figure things out for herself after she realizes things she believed were truth are not quite as they seemed. She enlists the help of Caleb to go with her on this summer road trip. Caleb was amazing though out this book he was so patient and put up with a lot from Riley. I’m afraid I may have left her on the side of the road sometimes. Although maybe not I would not want the wrath of Wes after me.
Most of the ride Riley has her rose colored glasses on and starts to dream about what kind of life she could have. Caleb is supportive but tries to keep her grounded. Caleb also keeps in touch with those at home that would be worried when they went missing. He is such a great protector Wes would be proud well maybe not that proud. Riley feels like she has been lied to by everyone and when they return realizes Caleb lied to her also. Now their relationship is on the rocks.
I absolutely loved Caleb but Riley could be a bit much at times. I liked the scenes between Wes and Riley at the gym. I am looking forward to seeing the other kiddos in this series. Feels like I’m going back home for a family reunion.

The last time I saw the man—jerk—of my dreams, he fired me. Now, he’s back in town to renovate my bed and breakfast before the tourist season starts.
I might have gotten over my grudge, but I sure haven’t moved on since him. Harrison is the ideal hunk, or he was back when we were young and stupid. My contractor is still sexy, possibly sweet, and easily keeps up with my sarcasm…but he’s a package deal this time. He’s back with a daughter and a chip of his shoulder, neither of which should matter to me. But the more I see him on the job, each time we clash and fall into our thrilling push-and-pull, I have to wonder if there’s something fresh to start with him before the summer kicks off.
Of all people, it just had to be Jessie Green buying this old dump. Imagine my shock that the feisty, gorgeous, stubborn girl I fell in love with in high school is the owner of our town’s former brothel.
Her plans for a B&B are a nearly impossible race against time—doable, but it’s quite the hustle. With the tables turned—her hiring me—it’d be easier done if I didn’t have to see her day in and day out, worrying if she can overlook our past, wondering if she tastes as good as she looks, wishing I could have a take two. Hell, even a take one

Holy hawt damn you can feel the sexual tension rolling off the pages as the story gets deeper into the story. Jessie always dreamed about opening a bed and breakfast in the run down mansion in town,and once she got a lot of money from a relative she wasn’t aware she had she could finally do it. Well once the couple finally decided to sell and the town worm (wormer being his last name perfectly fitting)so they made a deal if she could get the house fixed up by the time the tourist season started she could buy the house. And she ended up hiring her old crush from high school and damn did he age well but he also now had a kid. Will they get this house done in time or will their sexual tension keep them from getting the job done in time and allowing all Jessie’s money go to waste and letting Wormer turn it into a parking lot. Wow this story was amazing hilarious and hawt I loved every second of it.
