The Bribe (Calamity Montana #1) by Willa Nash


Duke Evans didn’t expect to interrupt a beautiful woman in a staring contest with a bison on his favorite hiking trail. He also didn’t expect to see her again after rescuing her from the surly beast. As the sheriff in Calamity, Montana, he’s had his fair share of surprises but none as pleasant as pulling over a shiny black car and finding his mysterious hiking companion behind the wheel.


Only, she lied to Duke. She gave him a name as fake as her hair color. According to her driver’s license, her real name is Lucy Ross, the famous country music singer whose sudden disappearance has been a hot topic in the media over the past two weeks.

He’s not sure why Lucy lied about her identity or why she’s in Calamity. And she’s not talking. Instead, she offers him a bribe to keep her secret.

But Duke doesn’t want her money. He wants to know why this woman is on the run. And as long as the star shines on his badge, he’s going to find out.

4 Calamity Stars

Who doesn't love a small town romance between the town's sheriff and a mysterious new woman in town? Throw in some suspense and chaos and then you have a fabulous read you can't put down.  The Bribe is a great start in this new series and I'm ready for more. 

Lucy Ross, one of the most famous country star, life has been turned upside and down and she's ready to hide from the paparazzi and the world. She wants to remain hidden in Calamity, Montana, but a certain Sheriff, won't let her go and wants answers. 

Duke Evans, Calmity's Sheriff, life is about to go from quiet to chaos with the mysterious Lucy living in his town. There's something about Lucy's sassiness and then offering him an outrageous bribe that has Duke wanting more. And the truth. 

Overall, The Bribe, is a sweet and swoony romance that has plenty of funny and serious moments. This book is set in a charming small town that I  wish I can pack my bags and leave the chaos of an overcrowded city. The secondary characters also rounds out this book and I'm hoping to get more of them in the next books.

Rifts and Refrains (Hush Note #2) by Devney Perry


From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note’s infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band’s chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it’s to her pulse.

Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops.

When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she’s paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn’t able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future.

If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.

4.5 Rock Stars

This book. Oh wow. Not only do I love a great second chance story about childhood sweethearts (and single dads!), but the family dynamic of the Montgomery's - had me tearing up! The relationship Quinn had with her family - truly broke my heart and was put back together by the end. There is not a book from this author that I don't love. Every single book that Ms. Perry publishes - I just can't stop loving. Another fantastic read.

Quinn Montgomery is a Rock Star. A Rock Goddess. She's the drummer in one of the most popular bands - she has it all - the money, fame and fortune. But that's just material things. She's brokenhearted inside by her past life, over her family and the one boy who got away. 

Graham Hayes never gotten over Quinn, but he's still angry and hurt over the way Quinn left. And now, she's back home after a family tragedy and she's the last person Quinn wants to see. 

Quinn being back home is uncomfortable, her goal is to keep a low profile while she pays respect to her Nan. But that doesn't happen when her family and Quinn doesn't make it easy for her. 

This book is all about second chances between family and true love. Honestly, the relationship between Quinn and her father had me in tears. Literally, crying into my Kindle. This is a fabulous read and just another favorite from my favorite author. Looking forward to more in this series by other authors!


"Remember when we used to lie in the back of my truck and count stars?”

“You’d count one, then I’d count one. I think the highest we ever got was—”

“Two hundred seventy-one.”

She laughed. “We’d get bored and start making out.”

I stepped away from the door, turning my head to the heavens so I wouldn’t stare at her lips. “One.”

She moved closer. “Two.”

“Three.” I dropped my gaze and found hers waiting.

“Four,” she whispered.

Five came when my lips brushed against hers, slow and soft at first, teasing and testing. But then her arms wound around my shoulders and all rational thought disappeared.

Release Blitz: Kane by Sawyer Bennett



I have a problem.

Potential problem?

I’m not really sure. Here’s the deal.

There’s this girl—isn’t that how it always starts?—and her name is Mollie. I like her. I mean really like her. I hope that doesn’t make me seem less manly than my professional hockey player persona implies. But here’s the issue—she’s my best friend. The one person I can count on for everything, who’s been there with me for all the moments, big and small.

When Mollie shows up at my door, travel weary and scared following an incident with an ex, my instinct to protect her goes into overdrive. It’s then that I know she’s more than just my best friend and the skates are swept out from under me when I find out she feels the same way.

Our transition from friends to lovers to potentially something more is seamless, the Arizona Vengeance is back on the ice looking for a repeat championship, and my life has never been better. Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, the realities of us both having careers which keep us on the road put our blossoming relationship on ice.

It feels like the game just went into overtime and I’m on the verge of either the biggest win or most disappointing loss of my life. And losing is never an option.

Lost.
Until he finds her.

And she’s his—his very own secret he doesn’t have to share. 
Together, they can overcome anything…
heartache and destruction, guilt and regret.

5 AMAZING STARS

I was up until 4am finishing this book and knowing I had to work in the morning (ok, I work from home because of the 'Rona), but still... I had to be up to be online -  and I could not put this book down! Do I have regrets staying up this late to finish Leo? Absolutely not! As always, Ms. McLean does it again. She pulled every emotion out of me while reading this - it was an emotional roller-coaster  getting to know Mia and Leo. There were so many sweet, heartbreaking and emotional twists to their love story!

Oh these Preston boys... each of these boys face a hardship, but end up on top - it just takes heartache, pain and heartbreak to get there. And Leo Preston is not different. Leo has grown up in a busy home, with plenty of siblings. All he wanted was to find some peace away from the chaos. And when Mia Kovács, the quiet and peculiar girl, who comes live on their property with her mother -  every summer, changed his life forver. 

Mia had a life where her Mother ignored her and her father left her, and the only constant in her life was her grandpa. And every summer, she went to stay with her mom and it was always the worst and best moments of her life. Mia and Leo started secret friendship over the years. They understood each other. It was connection that nobody else seem to get. Over the years, they had their ups and down. Mostly downs, but there was moment that changed it all and Leo will do anything to protect Mia. 

Gah. I can't even tell you how much I loved this book!

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.

4 Stars

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!
