Synopsis

From the wrong side of the tracks…

Alyson Blake had learned early on that the only one she could depend on was herself. The only light in her life was a boy whom everyone agreed was destined for prison; but with his first kiss, he had set her soul on fire. Since the day the police dragged him away in handcuffs, she had managed to lead a quiet life, but when she attends an event fraught with mayhem, trouble resurfaces.

The one person she can’t forget…

Jamison Weston is the kind of guy dads load their shotguns for; endowed with a hot temper and a rap sheet as long as both tattooed arms. Known as “The Judge,” Jami’s hot temper, lethal fists, and cocky attitude have earned him respect and admiration both in and out of the ring. But just when he thinks he’s pummeled his past to death, Alyson Blake reenters his life.

Two paths collide…

After years of separation, Alyson is eager to reexplore the man who’s never left her thoughts, but for Jamison, she’s both the distraction he wants, but doesn’t need. As the two embark on a relationship that neither of them expected or bargained for, an outside threat closes in. When Alyson crosses the line of professionalism and takes her work home with her, her life is put in danger, leaving Jamison with no choice but to once again step in and become her protector.

Excerpt

 

I’m still waiting for him to say something…
anything. So many emotions cross his face in a matter of seconds. Happy.
Confused. Sadness. I don’t know what to say. Perhaps I need to say nothing at
all. In the stillness, our eyes do all the silent talking. Our chests move with
heavy breathing and desire pours out through our pores. It’s unmistakable. The
question is what are we going to do about it? The seconds feel like hours while
we weigh each other’s options.
 
Finally, Traxx man-ups the situation, and he slowly
takes a couple of steps until he invades all my senses. So close that I can
feel his body heat, and the clean scent of his cologne becomes a part of the
air I breathe. I look at him, my high heeled shoes giving me a closer look to
his masculine face. His jaw is tense. His eyes intense. It’s a lot more than I
can take. He’s everywhere and nowhere all at once. I want to grab a hold of
him, and I want to turn around and walk away. Too many feelings…too much. I
want it all. With shaky fingers I place a hand on his chest. I’m unsure if I
should push or pull, so I leave it still instead. He is rock solid and soft at
the same time, if that’s even possible. His heat burns my hand, but I won’t
move it. It’s the best burn I’ve ever had.
 
The heat moves through that hand and comes into me
– inside of me, moving throughout my body and filling in my empty heart. One of
his hands comes up to cover the one I have on his chest, and as I turn my head
to look at the Traxx sandwich my hand’s caught in between, his other hand lifts
up, and grabs my hair, moving it behind my shoulder. His hand caresses my
shoulder, then my collarbone, never leaving my skin, until it finally wraps
around the side of my neck and with his thumb, he gently rubs the outline of my
jaw. Back and forth. And again – back and forth. It’s a beautiful feeling. It’s
excruciating. I catch myself looking into his eyes and then my eyes move so I
can stare at his lips.
 
“Ciara, you are breathtakingly beautiful.”
 
I realize I can’t talk and then something similar
to a whimper escapes my lips. I recover quickly by clearing my throat and
whispering, “Thank you.” The time lingers on. I wish I could pull him inside my
place and into my room. Keep him there, allowing myself to be selfish. There
are so many things I want to do to this man that even eternity wouldn’t be
enough time. I also need to try and decipher these feelings I have for him. To
show him someone cares and that he is worth it. His eyes say so much and
nothing at all.
 
Raising my chin with his fingers, Traxx whispers,
“It’s time to go.”
 
“Is it really… time?”
 
“Yes, it is. We may have to finish… this… another
day. Don’t you think?”
 
“Agreed. We really have to work on…this.”
 
He kisses the top of my hand and steps away from
me, back into the receiving hall, waiting for me to lock the door. I turn
around and he smiles and extends his hand towards me. I hold on to it and
follow him to the truck. The thought occurs to me that I would follow this man
anywhere he needed me.

~ REVIEW: Once Pure (Shattered Ties) by Cecy Robson ~

91j84PzC03L._SL1500_SynopsisShe bears the scars of the past. He blames himself for things he can’t control. Their defenses are up, but in Cecy Robson’s latest Shattered Past novel—perfect for fans of Monica Murphy and J. Lynn—true love lands a knockout punch.
 
Sofia Tres Santos remembers a time before her life went sour, before her innocence was ripped away, before she began punishing herself with risky behaviors and unworthy men. Now, at twenty, she just hopes she’s ready to rebuild some of what she lost. One way or another, it always comes back to her childhood friend and longtime crush, Killian O’Brien.
 
As strong as Killian is, Sofia has always been his one weakness. He knows Sofia has suffered and wants to ensure she’s never hurt again—not like before, and definitely not under his watch. When Sofia agrees to work at his mixed martial arts gym, Killian seizes the opportunity to help and protect the sweet girl he’s always cared for. And yet, as he trains Sofia to defend herself using his hard-hitting MMA techniques, he’s drawn to the vulnerable beauty in ways he never expected.
 
As Sofia grows stronger, she also grows brave enough to open herself up to love. And along the way, she challenges everything Killian believes to be true, showing him that no matter how much he dominates in the ring, the real battle is fought in the heart.

christie review 5 star aCecy Robson has managed to amaze me again! Her romances are always filled with amazing chemistry and thrills. Some would say they can be dark, but she always manages to bring light and happiness into them as well.

Once Pure is the book about Teo’s sister, Sofia. I have been waiting for this one! Sofia has come back to the old neighborhood to help childhood friend and crush, Killian, rebuild his website and create a program to manage his accounts. It’s very obvious these two have amazing chemistry and are insanely attracted to each other, so a romance should be easy, right? Not at all…a horrible event in their past that changed their lives forever have kept them apart. Will they be able to overcome their painful past and build a happy future together? Or, will they hold on to the pain and let their past keep them apart?

Oh my gosh, I just fell in love with these two characters from the very beginning. I loved them as a couple and as individuals as well. I loved their families; their inclusion in the book really helped build and develop their characters…especially Finn and Wren, Killian’s brother and sister. Of course, Kill is hot and sexy…perfect book boyfriend material. However, hands down, Sofia was my favorite. In the beginning of the book, we meet a young woman who is afraid of life, even though she is doing her best to build a good one for herself. She undergoes such an inspiring change throughout the pages of this awesome book! She has always had a strong woman deep inside of her; she’s was just afraid to believe in herself. Killian plays an integral part of her transformation, but it’s ultimately Sofia who embraces that inner strength. She’s is now one of my favorite heroines!

As I have written in several of my reviews, I like books that resonate deep in my soul. Once Pure has done that! In other words, I like my fiction to affect reality, to have the ability to change someone’s life. And again, Once Pure does just that, as have Cecy Robson’s other books in the Shattered Past series. They offer hope and the chance of happiness to those that life has knocked down. Another extraordinary, moving, and emotional read from Cecy Robson.

Loveswept

SynopsisIn this edgy, sizzling romance for fans of Monica Murphy and Abbi Glines, a bad boy shows a straitlaced law student how to slow down and savor the good things.

Everly Parker is about to graduate from law school, always busy, and can’t stop rushing through life. Her late grandmother left her a bucket list of meaningful, can’t-miss experiences, but she hasn’t completed a single one. Then searing-hot Max Levin bursts into her world. As a casting director for a porn production company, Max is loaded, cocky, and all wrong for Everly. Still, she’s tempted enough to cross the first item off her list: Go out with someone you’d never give the time of day.

Inheriting a porn empire isn’t every guy’s dream (well, actually, it probably is), but Max isn’t complaining. It’s just that until he meets Everly, he has no idea what he’s been missing. As the pressure mounts to take over the family business, Max can’t help wondering what would happen if he chose Everly instead. So far, his life has been a wild ride, but only Everly promises the greatest rush of all: love.

ExcerptA loud bang sounded to my right and I turned my attention to the aisle, where a sweet- looking girl blew a heavy breath out the side of her mouth. It caused her unkempt black hair to flutter around her face. She bent, reaching to pick up the stack of books that had fallen to the ground, giving a spectacular view of a tight, round bottom covered in black fabric.

Who knew yoga pants were so damn sexy? Hers were sloppily tucked into a pair of beige Uggs.

I scrambled from my seat and crouched beside her, picking up one of her books and holding it out. “You dropped something,” I said, my senses kicking up at the sweet scent surrounding me.

She snorted, a cute little laugh, and grabbed the book from my hand. “Sounds like something I would do.”

She finally looked up and her soft blue eyes locked on mine. Her lips were plump and naked. She didn’t need lipstick. They were the perfect shade of raspberry. Her pale skin was luminous and it took all of my willpower not to lean in and scent her, running my nose up her dainty neck. My cock twitched in my pants. An unexpected twitch. One I hadn’t felt upon first sight of a woman in a long damn time.

Getting rid of that book so soon might have been a bad idea. I needed it to cover the semi that had just popped up in my pants.

I did a quick survey of her body, which didn’t stand out, in yoga pants and a long-sleeved T-shirt. She was the exact opposite of the women I saw on a daily basis. She was as plain as vanilla ice cream, but something grabbed me—grabbed my cock, was more like it.

“I’m sorry to interrupt.” Her face knitted with guilt as her eyes settled on something behind me.

“We’re on an interview,” Stella said from the table.

This woman knew the escorts. Did that mean she, too, was . . . A grinned curved up at the side of my mouth. Oh, yeah, I could definitely see her making a lot of money playing the uptight librarian fantasy.

“At my favorite café?”

“Public space, and all,” Jade said with a shrug.

Smart girl. Just the kind of girl White Lace wanted.

When the last book had been picked up, the woman straightened, and I followed suit. She flipped her hair and when her sea-blue eyes locked on mine, I suddenly felt like I’d just run the New York Marathon. Winded, achy, but high on something I just couldn’t put my finger on.

“Thank goodness.” She struggled to gather the books against her chest. “I thought I interrupted your dates.”

I struggled to lift my arm to help her, but it was caught on something invisible. Sort of like my tongue, which didn’t want to cooperate.

She shuffled away and placed her books on a table three down from where we sat.

When she returned, she eyed me with . . . disinterest.

“I’m Max Levin.” This time my arm cooperated. “Are you an associate of these lovely ladies?”

She brought her hand up to cover her chest. “You think . . . Oh, no.” She laughed, a sweet little giggle that forced a smile to my face. “I’m not a . . .” A blush fell across her cheeks.

Innocent. Unassuming. With a little lip gloss, maybe . . . I shook off the thought. This girl wasn’t porn material. But for the first time in years, I actually wanted to test the merchandise to find out.

christie review5 star aRush is a great example about not judging a book solely by its cover and synopsis. I freaking loved this book! I was intrigued when I read the synopsis on Net Galley. It was basically described as a romance between an heir to a porn enterprise and a young woman getting ready to graduate from law school. I thought…”Hmmm…this might be interesting.” Yes, I was right that it was going to be interesting, but Gina Gordon completely blew me away!!! It was so much more. The book and its characters have so much depth that pulls you in and doesn’t let you go!

Here’s the quick rundown. While both Max and Everly grew up pretty much knowing what their futures would be. He would one day take over his father’s place as the head of a porn enterprise, and Everly would follow in her parents’ footsteps and become an attorney. But, that’s where the similarities end, or so we are lead to believe. As in life, plans change. Max is pretty much content with taking his father’s place, or so he thinks until he meets Everly. And, Everly has known she would become a lawyer, but I got a sense from the very beginning of the book that she wasn’t quite so sure. The two meet at a coffee shop while Max is interviewing Everly’s two roommates, who are escorts, for a potential job as actors in an upcoming porn film. To say their first meeting was memorable is an understatement. She finds him incredibly attractive but obnoxious and pompous, and he’s never met a girl like her before. As he makes his apologies for being an arrogant jerk, he discovers a bucket list her grandmother left her to complete before finishing law school, and Max decides to help her with it when he sees one of the items is to date someone she probably wouldn’t give the time of day too. This begins one of the most humorous and swoon worthy romances I have ever read. It won’t be an easy road to their happily ever after, but it will be a journey in which they learn so much about each other but most importantly, themselves.

A couple of things stand out to me about this book…the characters and Gordon’s writing ability. First, the characters….they are written in a way that just endears them to you. They appear one way on the surface but are so different than what you expected. Max, the walking sex god, isn’t the pompous a### he appears to be. There is so much going on underneath that sexy face and body. He’s smart, intelligent, and has a good heart. Everly comes across as this strait-laced, good girl, but she’s hiding a little naughtiness inside of her. You would think growing up the way she did she would be judgmental, but she lives with two escorts and doesn’t judge them for their choices. Even Max’s dad is a contradiction. He’s the king of a porn enterprise but yet his ultimate goal with some of the girls is to get them out of it and on to a better life. Even Everly’s dead grandmother is more than a one-dimensional character; you can clearly see the kind of person she was through her bucket list she left Everly.

Gina Gordon’s writing is flawless..she know how to tell a da** good story, one that will fly by much faster than you want it to. You become so immersed in it that you don’t even realize how much time has passed since you started the first page. The only regret you have is that it’s come to an end! I really hope that some of the secondary characters get their own books! Well done!

Darby McKenzie’s heart started beating funny the day that she met Trace Chamberlain. She was four, he was five, and that meeting altered the course of both their lives forever.

Trace was born into a nightmare. Before meeting Darby and her family, the only love he ever knew was that of his twin brother. The two of them endured years of abuse that left scars. The permanent kind.

For Trace, meeting Darby was like catching a rainbow. She exploded into his life in a pop of Technicolor that awakened his senses. She wasn’t just his best friend—she was his life. His touchstone, his safety, his heart—she was everything.

Darby had been through it all with Trace and her love for him never wavered for a second. But no amount of love could make Trace believe that he was worthy of her. Knowing that she deserved better, Trace pushed her away, when what he really wanted was to pull her closer. Emotionally destroyed and bitter from the back and forth, Darby finally let go and decided to move on.

Sometimes hitting rock bottom is the only way to understand that you need to change. Realizing that losing Darby means losing everything, Trace sets out to fight for the love of his life.

Is it too late for Darby and Trace to have a happily ever after?

“Who, me?” I scoffed.  “Never.  What makes you say that?”

He rubbed his hand along the back of his neck as he stared at me, his eyes taking in every inch of my face.

“I don’t know, Darby.  Maybe it’s the fact that you’re naked except for a pair of high heels?  I don’t stand a chance.”

“Oh!” I answered with a laugh as I gestured down at my body.  “This old thing?  This isn’t me playing dirty,” I assured him.

“You don’t think so?”

“No,” I assured him.  “But this is.”

I dropped to my knees without warning, and I smiled as I came face to face with the fact that he had a very visible hard-on.

“This is crazy,” he groaned as I ran my hand over his erection.

“Something like that,” I agreed.

I worked fast to get his tuxedo pants open, quickly pulling them down along with his boxers so that I could grip him.  Gripping his erection, I looked up at him and wiggled my brows suggestively.

“Did you still want to sleep on the couch?”

The pained look that flashed across his face was priceless, and I choked out a laugh as his eyebrows shot up toward his hairline.

“I should go sleep on the couch,” he answered huskily.  “But I can’t.”

Amelia is taken on a weekend excursion with her best girlfriends to let loose, relax and have a little fun. What harm is there in a little vacation? It’s not like the legends, the haunted history of the place can scare them away. It’s all harmless fun.

Or so she thought.

Something seems familiar about the town. The trees, the winds, the feel of everything. Her ever present nightmares have become more intense within the limits of the old historical setting. She’s prepared to write off the whole trip as nothing more than a case of her mind running away with the sensationalized magic here. When she meets a handsome stranger who’s eager to know her in a way no one else can, she begins to think there may be something more to this place, something more to him.

Will has been waiting, biding his time, and praying that she’ll come back. He’s broken the natural order of things to possibly find her again, weaving their way through the years until they can be together again. He knows he may never find her, but he can’t risk not trying. This place calls to her, just as it did to him. It will bring her back home. It will bring her back to him.

What’s 300 years when it comes to true love? He’s prepared to wait an eternity if he has to, just to see her, hold her, kiss her again.. to make her remember what was stolen from them so long ago. To make her remember who she is, the power she possesses and the love they swore to each other.If you’d like to purchase My Soul to Wake, feel free to grab your copy here: LINK GOES HERE

~ REVIEW: Breaking the Ice by T. Torrest ~

91cGJK4j7wL._SL1500_SynopsisZachary McAllister’s entire life revolves around hockey and sex, in that order.
When a career-ending injury changes everything, he’s left mourning the life that could have been. Now the owner of a rundown local pub, the ex-NHL star finds himself grappling with his “ordinary” existence, trying to come to terms with a very uncertain future.

His former team is on track to win the 2003 Stanley Cup Championship without him, and preparations are being made for a victory party at the bar.

Enter Avery Brooks.
She’s the straitlaced event planner hired to arrange the party, thanks to her father’s connections.
Her father who just happens to be the General Manager for the NJ Devils…
and the guy who handed Zac his walking papers four years ago.

Suddenly, Avery finds herself face-to-face with her teenage crush.
The two had a minor flirtation going on back in the day, when Zac was just an arrogant, womanizing rookie and Avery was a naive, starry-eyed fan.

Their chemistry is undeniable, but both are completely different people than they were all those years ago.

In order for this fiery Devil to melt the heart of an ice princess, Zac will need to up his game.
All he needs to do is relearn everything he ever thought he knew about how to play.

Breaking the Ice was written based on the input and suggestions from readers.
From the characters’ names to their occupations to the years this story takes place, the entirety of this narrative has been created by (and for) readers like
you.

***This book is intended for readers 18+ due to some offensive language, underage drinking, and graphic sex/sexual situations***

christie review 4 and a half starsI was excited to read this one by T. Torrest since I have been a fan of hers for quite some time. I knew it was going to be different as she wrote the book based on input and ideas from her readers, and it exceeded all my expectations. It was filled with all the romance, steam, and humor that makes her books so good.

Avery is home from college when she meets the newest hockey player in town…Zac! Oh my…he is sex on a stick and then some. And, it becomes evident that he is also a huge manwhore. When the two meet, there are definitely sparks there, but Avery’s dad is the general manager of the team, and she knows how the players are. However, it doesn’t stop Zac from trying all of his lines on her but to no avail. They do develop a friendship over the next few years, but that attraction and lust is always simmering beneath the surface. One night changes everything between the two, and they go their separate ways only to meet several years later. Both of their lives are different than they thought it would be. Will this time be different? Will they get their HEA? You really have to read this great book to find out!

The relationship between Avery and Zac takes place over a number of years, but I loved it! Torrest is taking the chemistry and emotions and stringing us along perfectly. I don’t know who might combust first Avery and Zac or Torrest’s readers!!!!!! Avery and Zac had a lot going on as a couple, but the way each character is developed and explored made me invested in them as individuals. In other words, their own individual lives were just as important as their life as a potential couple.

I discovered T. Torrest a couple of years ago when I read Remember When, and she has had me hooked since then. Every character she creates just draws you in, and I love that! I recommend reading Breaking the Ice if you like a sweet, sexy romance with some sense of humor thrown in. I mean, what’s better than some good romance, sex, and laughter!

Abou the authorT. Torrest is a fiction writer from the U.S. She has written many books, but prays that only a handful of them will ever see the light of day. Her stories are geared toward readers of any age that know how to enjoy a good laugh and a dreamy romance.

Ms. Torrest was a child of the eighties, but has since traded in her Rubik’s cube for a laptop and her Catholic school uniform for a comfy pair of yoga pants. She’s a pop-culture junkie, a movie aficionado, and an enthusiast of talking about herself in the third person. A lifelong Jersey girl, she currently resides there with her husband and two sons.

She also really digs it when she hears from readers, and is known to use words like “dig” in a non-sarcastic way. You can find out more about her books at her website: http://www.ttorrest.com

Add to GoodreadsSynopsisDean “Mr. O” Kellar has been following closely in the footsteps of his famous adopted father for years, but when Megan Davis pops back into his life suddenly he starts following him in a new light. She was the girl who saved Dean when they were children and the girl he needs to save now. Will the two of them be torn apart once more or will their hearts be allowed a chance to finally mollify?

A Senses Series Novel

XN MF RD Teaser 1ExcerptIn case you didn’t know, the only sound
sexier than a woman on the brink of an orgasm,
is a woman on the brink of an orgasm
that’s being given by me. We can test that if
you wanna disagree.

“Mmm…” she whimpers clutching the back of my head
to keep me latched in place while my tongue strokes away
tasting the most addictive flavor of fun in the entire universe.

“Oh…Oh..Ohhhh!!! I’m coming! I’m coming!” I
lap at the new juices, my afternoon snack about as sweet
as I expected it. Her legs continue to shake, my face now
smothered so deep I can’t breathe.

Yeah. That would be a fun one to explain to
my parents. “No. No. It’s cool. I just passed
out because her orgasm suffocated me.
You’ve been there right dad?” Ha. He would
understand and probably fist bump me before getting us both grounded.

Finally pulling my face free, I use the edge of my white
t-shirt to remove the shine.

Great face cleanser. Opens the pores. Oh
what? Don’t look at me like that. That was
funny.

“That’s why they call you Mr. O,” the girl says trying to
lift herself up on her unsteady elbows.

“No baby.” I rip off the shirt I was just trying to use as a
towel, exposing my muscular chest from hours at work and
working out. “That’s just the start of why they call me Mr.O.”

michele review 5 star aHmmm.. Let’s see..

Sexy body – check
Confidence in the bed room – check
Kind, Caring and Protective of those he loves – check

No I’m not talking about Logan Kellar, we’re talking about Dean (I know I know, Logan is all those things too). Dean is seriously a clone of Logan. At 19 he’s starting down the path that Logan was on before he finally got his head together and let Maxx in. Dean even has a nickname from the ladies, he’s known as Mr. O, I’m sure you can figure out why.

However, Dean has always had a piece of himself missing ever since he was 9 years old. When he walks into a bakery one day, that piece comes right back into his life. But there are some obstacles that he has to move out of the way before he can have the girl.

Megan remembers Dean, Her Dean, from when they were kids. How do you forget the first boy you ever fell in love with? But she hasn’t had the best life the last few years. She’s now stuck in a relationship that is destructive, and she hasn’t had the best family life either. However, when she sees Dean, she sees a man that could make her happy, but she doesn’t think she’ll ever get her happy.

These two are seriously like another Logan and Maxx, only with a little less up and downs. Well, you’ll have that if you’re parents are giving you advice, especially when they see somethings they did only a few short years earlier. But even with all the advice and help from the whole family, will Dean and Megan be able to get the happily ever after that the rest of the family has had?

You get to see more of everyone in the family (especially Maxx and Logan). However, things are so happy in Maxx and Logan land, they have some of their own issues to work out. But the one person that I did fall in love with was Maxx and Logan’s child. Seriously, this kid is the best of both parents! (You’ll just have to read the book to find out the sex of the baby)

As always, I am sucked into Xavier’s stories, and completely unable to put it down. I’m sad to see the series end. I’m hoping and praying that we’ll get some stories about Dean and Megan’s friends in the future. It’s really freaky how they all mirror the grown-ups. But enough of my rambling, you really do need to read this series in order, but once you start you won’t want to stop. Xavier is most definitely one of my top five authors out there!

christie review 5 star a

“Everyone in this family has a story to tell Kid. Now you have you have your own.”

Now, it’s Dean’s chance to finally tell his story, and what a story he has! I have been anticipating this book ever since Xavier Neal said Dean would be getting his own book. He stole my heart the very first time Logan saw him and felt the need to protect him. Mollify didn’t just meet my expectations, it blew them out of the water.

Dean is now a college student and has turned into a mini Logan. The Kid has grown into Mr. O, satisfying girls all over the place. As we soon find out, all that is about to change. You see, there has always been a piece of Dean’s heart that has been missing. He finds it when he sees the girl who has possession of that piece of his heart when he walks into a bakery and sees Megan. He has been in love with her since he was 9. When she left, she took a piece of him with her. They easily remember each other, and over the next few weeks, begin catching up. The two have amazing chemistry, so the scenes they have are explosive. But, Dean wants more…he vows never to let Megan go again. As Dean’s life has changed, so has Megan’s. Instead of hers getting better, it has gotten worse…a lot worse. In fact, her life is in danger. Can they overcome their pasts to have a happy future they both deserve, and more importantly, will Megan survive? You need to read this one now!!!!

I was so glad to be amongst the clan again, and this time I got to be Dean’s and Megan’s closest confidante. There is so much to love about these two. Yeah, they are a mini Logan and Maxx, but they are their own too. Logan and Maxx had painful pasts, but Dean and Megan have their own horrors they have lived through. They both are survivors, but together they may just be unbeatable. As an added surprise, we see some of the characters from the Havoc series, which was pure genius. I read a lot of books and have favorite writers, and Xavier is in the top. However, she is the best, hands down, in connecting her readers with her characters and thus the book…in her case, an entire series. It is evident in her writing that her stories aren’t a means to an end. It’s not just a profession for her; she writes from her heart. She loves her characters; therefore, her readers love her characters.

I sound like a broken record, but every book the Xavier writes just gets better. She continues to add unforgettable characters and does a phenomenal job of giving you little clues of who it might be in all of her books. As always, her theme is family and the importance of their love and support. Shared hearts, not shared blood is what makes a family. As Dean says, “Once upon a time, I wished I had a family like mine and now I do. Who knows? Our family changes and grows so often; who’s to say it won’t get a little bigger again soon?” Thank you, Xavier, for making me a part of such an awesome family. I can’t wait to meet the newest member soon!

daniell review 5 star aDean “Mr. O” Kellar is following in his father’s footsteps when it comes to being the ultimate ladies’ man.  He works hard at his father’s gym, therefore he deserves to play hard, right? And he certainly is living up to his nickname.  But when he walks into a bakery and is face to face with the girl who has had his heart since he was a little boy, he is willing to change his game for a chance with her.

Megan Davis’ memories of her childhood best friend has gotten her through the toughest of times. When he walks back into her life, Megan is happy to have her best friend again. And even though she is attracted to him, she has heard all about Dean’s reputation and isn’t interested in being just another notch on his bedpost.

Can Dean convince Megan she means more to him than just some fun between the sheets?

I absolutely LOVE the Senses series!! Dean is just like his father in all of the best ways! Dean and Megan have such an amazing bond, lasting through years apart. Even though this is Dean’s story, I was thrilled that there was a lot of Maxx and Logan in this one too. And their little one is absolutely adorable!  This book/series is a definite MUST read!!
