If you love romantic suspense and babies, give Deadly Rescue by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann a read! Weird combination, right? Well, not for the Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce. Cooper, Celina, Nelson, and Sophie were expecting a weekend of training for the SCVC Taskforce group and relaxation for Sophie, 36 weeks pregnant with twins.
Evans and Manemann wouldn’t let us just enjoy the intimacy between power couple Cooper and Celina or the newish love between Nelson and pregnant Sophie. Nope, they like to throw in a little danger. What happens when a training exercise turns real?
I have enjoyed this series from the beginning and the novellas like Deadly Rescue that are quick reads, still pick a punch and include everything the full length novels do – edge of your seat action, dreamy romance, off the charts chemistry, and a plot that has you wondering what will happen next. I highly recommend Deadly Rescue to any romantic suspense fan!

In Deadly Holiday by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann, Cooper and Celina just want to spend an evening celebrating with family and friends. Unfortunately a drug cartel leader happens to get in the way of that. Luckily the Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce (aka The Avengers) are ready to save the day as always.
I have loved Cooper and Celina since the first story in the SCVC Taskforce series, Deadly Pursuit. It’s so much fun to read about them in later books. Evans and Manemann write an entertaining novella that packs quite a bit of action into such a short story! Sprinkled throughout are the sexy looks and quips and sweet baby giggles that will warm your heart!
Evans and Manemann are able to show the love between Cooper and Celina in the way they work together and respond to each other. It’s a love that has matured over time which is great to see. The ending of the story is just perfect, too!
If you are looking for a holiday novella with a bit of suspense, give Deadly Holiday a read!

Pitching for Love by Amy Manemann was such a good story. I adored the hero and heroine and it was so fun from start to finish. Evan is a major league pitcher who needs a little damage control and publicist Mia is called in to do just that. Why not throw a little interesting aspect into the story where the two happen to meet before their business meeting and hit it off extremely well (without knowing who the other one truly is). It was so much fun. Oh and Manemann can write some passionately hot love scenes.
Let’s face it. When you read a lot of contemporary romance, you sometimes feel as those you know what is going to happen when you have read a familiar plot, right? It’s those authors that are able to entertain you and make their version original that have you going back for more. Manemann does just that in Pitching For Love. I was turning pages like crazy and couldn’t wait for the next encounter between Evan and Mia to see what would happen.
The characters of Evan and Mia are well developed and likable. The author does a great job with the dialogue and emotions to show us who the characters are on the inside. I wanted the two of them to expand on their first night together and give it a shot so badly, yet, I completely understood why Mia had reservations and respected her for them. I would have done the same thing. But, the heart wants what the heart wants. We can’t always control that. I was glad to see that Evan was very persistent and he pursued Mia in all the right ways.
If you are looking for a story filled with love, laughter, friendship and sweet romance, Love On The Slopes by Amy Manemann is for you. This was my first book by Amy and it will not be my last. It’s one of those feel-good, warm-and-fuzzy romances. The story was easy to read, and I found myself flying through pages. I didn’t have the emotional ups and downs that I get with some books so this is something that you will want to read when you are sick of fighting the emotional roller coaster of reality.
In Love On The Slopes, Dominic is coming back home to start over for he and his son, Dante. Dominic and Jessa grew up together but when they parted, Jessa assumed the worst and has harbored ill feelings toward Dominic ever since. Dominic has had his share of struggles in life and just wants to come back to a familiar place with happy memories. As you can imagine, the homecoming for Dominic does not go so well.
The author does a great job with Dominic and Jessa. Sometimes I felt that Dominic was too good to be true (even in a romance) but I think I learned throughout the book that he really is who you see. I related to Jessa a little more because of her emotional ups and downs, as I would have felt the same way, yet sometimes I wanted her to just stay strong and not let her insecurities drag her down.
