Dream Keeper (#4) by Kristen Ashley

Spinning off from the bestselling Dream Man and Rock Chick series, this is the emotional and steamy contemporary romance fans of the Dream Team series have been waiting for!




Pepper Hannigan is determined to keep any romance off the table—and out of her bedroom—while her daughter Juno is still young. Sure, a certain handsome commando is thoughtful, funny, and undeniably hot, but Pepper’s had her heart broken before, and she won’t let it happen again. Not to her or her little girl, even if this hero could melt any woman’s resolve.

Augustus “Auggie” Hero can’t deny his attraction to beautiful, warm-hearted Pepper or how much he wants to make a home with her and her little girl, but Pepper’s mixed signals have kept him away. That is, until Juno decides to play matchmaker. Her efforts finally bring Pepper into his arms, but they expose the danger Pepper is in. To protect Pepper and Juno, Auggie will have to live up to his last name and prove happy endings aren’t just for fairy tales.

4 Stars

I say this every time I finish a Kristen Ashley book...I LOVE IT. There's something about this author's storytelling that really sucks you in. She makes you fall for every character and trickles in past characters who you loved earlier in the series and you just can't get enough!

Auggie and Pepper have an undeniable attraction, but she's been hesitant to move anything forward with him. Even with her daughter, Juno, and Pepper's friends push for it. But when Pepper finds herself in trouble with her estranged family and some questionable people, Auggie steps in to protect her and Juno. 

Dream Keeper is the typical KA book where the Alpha male comes swooping in the save his woman from trouble and crazy antics caused by her and friends. It's why I love reading these books! It's filled with steamy and sweet moments and a lot of twists and turns and danger.

Heard It in a Love Song by Tracey Garvis Graves




Layla Hilding is thirty-five and recently divorced. Struggling to break free from the past—her glory days as the lead singer in a band and a ten-year marriage to a man who never put her first—Layla’s newly found independence feels a lot like loneliness.

Then there’s Josh, the single dad whose daughter attends the elementary school where Layla teaches music. Recently separated, he’s still processing the end of his twenty-year marriage to his high school sweetheart. He chats with Layla every morning at school and finds himself thinking about her more and more.

Equally cautious and confused about dating in a world that favors apps over meeting organically, Layla and Josh decide to be friends with the potential for something more. Sounds sensible and way too simple—but when two people are on the rebound, is it heartbreak or happiness that’s a love song away?

From the bestselling author of The Girl He Used to Know comes a love song of a story about starting over and second chances.

3.5 Stars

Heard It in a Love Song is a low-drama romance, that is sweet all around. It's all about finding trust and love again after failed marriages. 

Layla left her marriage after realizing that her ex is someone who mentally knocked her down and she knew she could move on her own. Layla deserved so much more. Josh is now a single dad after realizing his long-time marriage has changed over time. He married young and they just grew apart. 

I really enjoyed how this book is written - it takes you present and then to the past to get the backstory of each characters.

Indigo Ridge (The Edens, #1) by Devney Perry

 


Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry is now live!

Winslow Covington believes in life, liberty and the letter of the law. As Quincy, Montana's new chief of police, she's determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn't earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor.

According to her pops, all she has to do is earn favor with the Edens. But winning over the town's founding family might have been easier if not for her one-night stand with their oldest son. In her defense, it was her first night in town and she didn't realize that the rugged and charming man who wooed her into bed was Quincy royalty.

Sleeping with Griffin Eden was a huge mistake, one she's trying to forget. He's insufferable, arrogant and keeps reminding everyone that she's an outsider. Winslow does her best to avoid Griffin, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths.

As clues to the murderer lead to one of Quincy's own, Griffin realizes Winslow is more than he gave her credit for. Beautiful and intelligent, she proves hard to resist. For him. And the killer.

Another new series fro
m this author gets me excited. I'm such a fan of Ms. Devney's from day one. The Edens is a new series with a new characters and more new drama...and Indigo Ridge is a great start to a new series! 

I love the female main character right off the bat - Winslow is not only smart and beautiful...she's a bad ass new Chief of Police in the town of Quincy. She's young, but with experience to be the new Chief, but to her police staff and most of the town, she has plenty to prove her worth. And that includes her accidentally one night stand with Griffin Eden.

Griffin Eden and his family pretty much owns the town, so we he learns that his hot one night stand is not a tourist, but the new Chief of Police, everything changes. Griffin doesn't do relationships and knowing that his attraction Winnie is causing him complicated issues. 

Griffin and Winnie team up when another dead body shows up on his ranch. Winnie feels like this death is something more...maybe murder! So to prove herself to her town, Winnie sets her sight on solving the mysterious deaths happening in Quincy. 

Indigo Ridge is sexy with a lot of suspense. And as always, I can't wait to read more in this series!

Riggs (Arizona Vengeance #11) by Sawyer Bennett




Known as the team loner, Riggs Nadeau gives his all on the ice, but nothing extra off it. A beautiful stranger is about to cause chaos in his very structured world. 

 As a professional hockey player, people think I live a charmed life. On the surface, I do. But they don’t know the horrors of my childhood, or the real reason that I have custody of my seventeen-year-old sister, Janelle. And that’s exactly the way I like it. They may think I’m a prick because I don’t like to share, but that’s fine. They don’t know me, and they don’t need to. 

In an effort to help Janelle get settled in Phoenix and stay out of trouble at school, I set her up with a job at Clarke’s Corner, the local bookstore owned by the girlfriend of a teammate. It’s there that she makes friends with Veronica Woodley, the extremely annoying, arrogant, money-hungry divorcee who I don’t want anywhere near my sister. Janelle insists I’m completely wrong about Veronica, but I refuse to accept that. I have to keep reminding myself that that the gorgeous blond with legs for days is off limits. 

Through a series of events, I start to see Veronica for what she really is—an amazing woman who has survived her own hell to come out even stronger. I have to admit, we’re more alike than not and the attraction between us burns hot. 

Maybe I was all wrong about my ability to love and commit, but when the past comes back to haunt me, can I be the man that Veronica, and Janelle, deserve?
