Wicked Billionaire (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #9) by Sawyer Bennett

  

As the prince of a luxury hotel empire, I am as 
close to American royalty as one can get. I grew up accustomed to a certain lifestyle. One where people give me what I desire and anything, or anyone, else can be bought. 


Everyone wants a piece of me, yet no one is actually deserving of my time. That changes when Bailey Robbins, the smoking hot housekeeper in one of my hotels, catches my attention. Sure, she has curves for days but it’s her smart mouth I can’t help but be intrigued by. 



I may have avoided relationships all my life, but something about her makes me want to introduce her to my world. The darker, wicked side of Declan Blackwood.

Quarter Miles (Runaway, #3) by Devney Perry

Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.

In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.

Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.

The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.

Or rip them apart.









“Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air.
“I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?”
“Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?”
“You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to.
“I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.”
Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us?
Yes.
That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal.
Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one.
I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.


4 Stars

This series just gets better and better and I'm so in love with this series. I thought I had a favorite couple in Gemma and Easton, but now Katherine and Cash are it for me! I loved their story in the third installment of the Runaway series, Quarter Miles. It's a perfect blend about friendship to lovers, and forgiveness! 

Katherine and Cash are co-workers, roommates and friends. But Katherine has been harboring feelings for Cash awhile and he sees her as a "sister." Or that is what Kat thinks!
Kat gets the opportunity to take a road trip, not only to find her former friend/junkyard kid, Aria, but to also figure out her life and Cash. But Cash has different ideas for Kat - he's going with her, because he doesn't want her to travel alone. 

While on this journey, both Kat and Cash discover that their friendship is more than friendship, but both are afraid to tell each other and take the next steps. These two have chemistry from the start, and I just wanted them to get it together!

Code Name: Ghost (Jameson Force Security #5) by Sawyer Bennett




I knew the risks of this job when I signed on with Jameson Force Security. Knew my time as a marine would prepare me for the danger I would face. But no amount of training could have ever prepared me for the helplessness of watching my teammates die, the agonizing mental and physical pain of torture, or the despair of captivity.

Returning home to Pittsburgh following a mission gone wrong, I am riddled with guilt and haunted by nightmares. I spend my days trying to regain the parts of myself I lost in that desert, the pieces that made me the Malik Fournier I once was. While the physical effects of my torture are fading, the emotional ones are proving much more stubborn and I find solace from the last person I should ever seek such comfort.

Anna Tate lost even more than I did in that mission. Now a widow and a single mom to the daughter she gave birth to shortly after her husband’s death, Anna offers me comfort I don’t deserve. As my feelings for Anna grow, I worry that once she learns the truth about what happened, she’ll turn her back on me.

I pull her to me just as tightly as I push her away. Hoping this forbidden love will save me from the ghost I’ve become.

I feel like I've been waiting for Malik Fournier's story forever and now it's here! Code Name: Ghost, the fifth book in the Jameson Force Security did not disappoint me at all.  We finally get to know what happened to Malik and if he safe or alive after being captured on a mission a few books back!

Malik and Anna Tate are two very broken characters, who lived through a tragic event and are continuing to figure out how to move on and learn to live again. 

Anna, who was pregnant at the time and lost her husband in a mission overseas while working for Jameson Security, is dealing with widow-hood and being a single mom. She's been working at Jameson and has the full support of the team. She's also been invested in the capturing and recovering of Malik, who was on the same mission when her husband was killed.

Wild Highway (Runaway, #2) by Devney Perry

From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry comes a small town, second chance romance.

Gemma Lane built an empire. Not a small feat, considering her home as a teenager was a makeshift tent in a California junkyard. She’s dedicated her life to turning pennies into millions. She has power, fortune and prestige.

And she’s leaving it all behind.

Gemma is headed across the country in her best friend’s Cadillac when a detour in Montana reunites her with old acquaintances and a man who hasn’t changed. Easton Greer challenges her every word and tests her every limit because he doesn’t believe she’s really abandoned her riches. She ignores his snide remarks and muttered censure—until the day she’s ready to return to the wild highway, and Easton taunts her to stay.

She’ll prove to him she’s not just running back to her wealthy life, that she’s more than her money. She’ll unlock her guarded heart and hope that this time around, he’ll treasure the key.










I opened the door, a smile still on my face, and collided, headfirst, with a wall of muscle.
“Oh, sorry.” I looked up and my heart stopped.

The smell of leather and aftershave filled my nose. I looked up to see a pair of dark brown eyes hooded by long, onyx lashes. I took in the straight nose, the sharp jaw and strong chin. My gaze dropped to the full lips I’d tasted once, on a night eleven years ago.

I’d never seen a face as symmetrical and so beautifully masculine as Easton Greer’s.
Even when he scowled, like he was now, it was a wonder.

He’d gotten even more handsome. How was that possible? He’d transformed from a young man to just a man, man. Rugged and rough and sexy.

“Gemma.” My name came out as a growl in his deep voice and I tore my gaze away from his mouth, taking a step back.

“Hi,” I breathed, the air heavy and thick.

He took a step away, then another, his glare unwavering.

Easton cast his scowl over his shoulder and spotted the Cadillac. “That yours?”

“Yes.”

“You’re staying here.” Not a question. An accusation. If he had it his way, I’d be uninvited.

I lifted my chin. “Yes, I came to see Katherine.”

His jaw ticked. “I thought we’d gotten rid of you years ago.”

Ouch. I guess he was still pissed about that whole sex in his room and waking up to find me gone.

But, good or bad, he hadn’t forgotten me.





4 Stars!

I loved this book. My favorite so far in this series (sure there is only two so far, but it just get better and better!). I'm big fan of second chances and it's exactly what Wild Highway gave me.

We met Gemma Lane in the previous book, who is Londyn's best friend and also part of the Runaway/Junkyard crew from back in their childhood. Gemma had a rough life in the beginning, but she worked her way up and made a name for herself and ultimately became a millionaire.

Gemma has a lot of guilt for leaving her friends behind, while she became successful. So when she takes the road trip up to Montana to find forgiveness from an old friend, Katherine, and others they she left behind in Montana. Including Easton Greer, the hunky cowboy, who she also had feelings for.

Easton can't believe Gemma is back in Montana after all these years. She up and left everyone, who helped and took her in. Easton knows that Gemma is known to run and she'll be gone soon, so he doesn't need to run into her for long. But avoiding her is hard.

As Gemma rekindles her friendship with Katherin, she's also trying not to rekindle things with Easton. But her feelings for him are still strong, but he doesn't make it easy for her, since he's still hurt and angry.

Even though Gemma is successful, she's still lost at life and what she wants. Making this trip out to Montana and to her past, helps her heal and find happiness. Not only is Wild Highway a sweet read about small town romances, it's about about forgiveness and moving on. And it shows that it doesn't mean that all the money in the world is going to truly make you happy in life! 

I'm so ready for Katherine's story in the next book!
