Review: MELTING IN TO YOU by Tracey Alvarez

Melting in to You by Tracey Alvarez is an uplifting, fun-loving novel as well as an opportunity for those who loved In Too Deep to get back to Stewart Island in New Zealand.

I really enjoyed In Too Deep, exploring the dynamic relationship between Piper and West. In this novel we get to experience the relationship between single Mom, Kezia and Ben, a man’s man, who just found out that he too, is a father.

I was initially concerned that this novel would spend a great deal of time talking about the children and their relationship with their respective parents. I wanted intrigue and suspense and a lot of angst between the main characters. I shouldn’t have been worried. Ms. Alvarez delivered an entertaining storyline along with comical quips and deep emotional entanglements.

Review: LOVE FOR BEGINNERS by Sally Clements

Love For Beginners was my first experience with a Bliss book and reading Sally Clements.  What I learned quickly was that this is a great story for those who need a quick read by the beach or in between meetings, laundry and running kids around!

Melody is a mechanic who has an outlook on dating that is quite contrary to what society seems to be portraying through all forms of media: a sexual relationship is an unimportant part of a lasting and meaningful relationship between a man and woman.  She is simply seeking a man who is interested in good conversation, stability and companionship. What she soon finds in the “new guy” who is filling in as contract help in her shop is anything but.

Review: IN TOO DEEP by Tracey Alvarez

Have you ever felt that you weren’t good enough? If so, you have something in common with Piper Harland, the kick-ass Police Diver who has to make a choice to head home to help her brother or remain selfish yet safely away from the one man who broke her heart in the book In Too Deep by Tracey Alvarez.

In_Too_Deep_Cover_-_mediumBen Harland has gotten into a bit of a fix. He has broken his ankle and his diving business is in debt. Unbeknownst to him, his sister who left the Island where they grew up nine years ago is coming home to help him at a personal cost.  Piper loves her family and knows that she needs to help her brother. The fact that she is losing her battle with panic when diving with her squad for body recovery allows for her to take a holiday to see if she can recover herself and help family. Win-win right? Not quite. Her first love is back on the Island as well and Piper knows that she will face him and the past that she so neatly tucked away years ago.

Review: SINGED by Kaylea Cross

Have you read any military romantic suspense novels lately? If not, pick up Singed by Kaylea Cross, find a nice quiet spot and indulge yourself! You will not be disappointed as Kaylea takes you on a heartfelt emotional journey riddled with danger!

Gage.  Over six feet of ripped tattooed badass with a soft spot for one woman. Claire. Sure, he is an ex-Master Sergeant that can handle himself and anyone that gets in his way, but it is the man beneath the brick-house that we get to know in the second installment of the Titanium Security Series by Kaylea Cross.

We get a teasing glimpse of Gage and Claire in the first book of the series, Ignited.  Moving into this book we get to see the original storyline pick up and evolve on American soil this time through the eyes and emotions of two people who clearly have feelings for one another but were separated by fear.  Continue reading

1520609_10152864344189298_992732178_nYea! My first review! While I share a love of reading with my sister Amy I had never considered reaching out past the shelves to the e-book world to see if I could find new authors telling stories that would resonate within me.  For the last several years I found myself dragging through the library reading dozens of book summaries only to come up with similar storylines and lack-luster love interests that were often predictable and boring. I typically enjoy military-based romantic suspense that is action packed and involves unrequited love with impossible odds.
