No Remorse by Skye Jordan is the second book in the Manhunters series and is so incredibly good. It’s one of those books where you are flipping pages like crazy to find out what is going to happen but then sad when you get to the end because it’s over.¬† The plot of No Remorse is original and engaging and the characters are well developed and you fall for them.

Austin is in love with his daughter Mirabella and will do anything to protect her. Everly is tasked to go in undercover as a nanny as part of an operation to return Mirabella to her grandmother, who has legal custody. But when Everly notices things aren’t quite what they seem, she struggles between what she believes is right and the duty to her team. As if that isn’t enough, add in little Mirabella who is captivating in many scenes and you have a book that has you hanging on every word so you don’t miss a thing.

Jordan does a fantastic job with No Remorse. She allows the readers to fall in love with Austin and Mirabella and struggle with Everly. The pacing of the story was right on and I could not put it down. Jordan drops the reader right into the story and makes them touch, feel, and hear what is going on. It’s great!

If you like romantic suspense, give No Remorse a read. It is the perfect balance of suspense, edge of your seat action, and passionate romance – the perfect blend of everything I love in a story. I can’t wait to read more books in this series!

Innocent Target by Katie Reus is a wonderful romantic suspense story that pulls you in from the beginning and holds your attention until the very end. I really enjoyed watching the romance between Axel and Hadley because it was so different than expected. I haven’t read the other books in the Redemption Harbor series yet, but I sure want to after meeting the other characters in the story.

Axel was a mystery to me and I loved learning about him with each page. I was really trying to figure out how he would end up the hero. Reus did not disappoint and really made it happen. Hadley was sweet and innocent yet wants to be seen as a strong, independent person. She and Axel were an unlikely couple, and I enjoyed the differences between Axel and Hadley. The romance stole the show for me in Innocent Target just because the characters were so interesting to me. Reus does a fantastic job with her stories and she is a must read for any romantic suspense fan!

Review: RISK by Misty Evans

One thing I love about books is being taken away to a world that I know nothing about. In Risk by Misty Evans, we are whisked away to Tennessee to spend time with superstars, royalty, and a few villains. But, have no fear, because Rock Star Security sends Noah, one of the newest of the their bunch along with his older brother Asher (who lightens up every scene), to guard Silent Risk, a royal horse, and on yeah, Noah gets to face the woman he proposed marriage to many years ago. Fun times!

I love Evans’ imagination when it comes to her plots. They are unique, fun, and rarely take you in the direction you would expect. She does a fabulous job of intricately weaving in several plot lines together and tying them all up at the end with this one. Risk gives us a taste of what it is like to have horses and service staff! The interesting characters Evans writes are so interesting that I want to meet them all! In Risk, I adored the way Jena saw the good in people and Noah was the opposite. Their romance was a sweet one to watch but I found myself “talking” to Noah often. He just needed a little extra help I thought. I am glad it turned out the way it did. They are a powerful couple.

In addition to the adventurous story and lovable hero and heroine, I really liked seeing Beatrice handle everything she does so effortlessly. Asher brought humor to the story and I always like to see Zeb in action. He is great! I am looking forward seeing what comes of the little seeds Evans planted that elude to future stories with a new project headed up by the President. If you like romantic suspense stories, give Risk a read. It is sure to entertain you from beginning to end!

Review: DARE TO RESIST by Laura Kaye

Talk about a hot book! Colten and Kady (aka Cupcake) burn up the pages in Dare to Resist by Laura Kaye. They have such great banter, playful interactions, and off the charts chemistry.

Colten and Kady grew up together as he is her older brother’s friend. Life happened, they went their own ways, and then find themselves at a business meeting stuck in a hotel together. They both want each other bad physically, but don’t act on it for a number of reasons. When they both figure out they want the same thing, watch out. I blushed a little, got a little fidgety, and ended the book with a big smile.

If you are looking for a quick, hot, sexy read, give Dare to Resist a try!

Review: BLAME IT ON THE KISS by Robin Bielman

Blame it on the Kiss by Robin Bielman was such a fun story to read. It’s that light-hearted, sweet, sexy, contemporary romance that takes you away from reality and lost in a love story. Bielman writes so effortlessly that you find yourself flipping pages and before you know it, the story is over. Her characters are flawed, yet as dreamy as romance characters should be. Blame it on the Kiss is the type of story that will have you wanting to snuggle up against your significant other and improving yourself. It is a fabulous story.

Bryce and Honor are the couple in the story and are quite compatible. Their camaraderie was easy and I enjoyed their interactions. Their affection for one another is easy and light. Bryce was the perfect match to Honor letting the relationship progress at her speed while encouraging her along the way in little ways. The result of the respect this couple has for one another certainly showed in the bedroom. Their physical chemistry is off the charts hot! Bielman provides the perfect amount of show in these intimate scenes to flow with the story.

If you are looking for a fun, take-me-away romance story, give Blame it on the Kiss a read. It will leave you with happy sighs and a full heart. I can’t wait to read the other books in the series!
