A SEAL’s Seduction – Review & Recommended Read


A-SEALs-Seduction-cover1A SEAL’s Seduction is another great read from Tawny Weber that kept me turning the pages. Alexia has a strand relationship with her father and has sworn off military men. We all know as soon as you say never, it’ll happen. Enter Blake. Alexia has no idea that Blake is military until she’s already started to fall for him. It takes a bumpy road filled with chemistry for these two to realize they are meant for each other.

I recommend this book to any romance reader looking for a hot read with a SEAL to drool over.

5 Starts = A Great Read

Blurb from Tawny Weber’s website:

Subject: Navy SEAL Lieutenant Blake Landon

Current Status: Two weeks of enforced leave

Mission: Distract himself in any way possible

Obstacle: A woman who tempts him to break the rules…including his own!

Navy SEAL Blake Landon (a.k.a. “Boy Scout”) knows the rule book inside and out. Checked. Rechecked. But when a mission ends badly, his entire team is ordered on leave. And that’s when Blake sees the tall redhead whose dark eyes suggest that the rules— especially those in bed—are made to be broken.

Scientist Alexia Lane has sex on the brain—partly for work, but mostly because she needs a man who makes her girly parts do the happy dance. Her only no-no? No military dudes. But Blake’s rockin’ bod promises delicious pleasures, and Alexia is halfway to sexual Nirvana before she can find out he’s actually a Navy SEAL.

And where one rule is broken, more are sure to follow….

Just What He Wanted by HelenKay Dimon – Review & Recommended Read

justwhathewantedJust What He Wanted by HelenKay Dimon is a sweet, sexy read. Travis Yardley is a man who overcome a crappy childhood to be a strong man who deserves love and happiness. Andie Patterson struggles with how she sees her self. She struggles to deal with her weight and how others have made her feel in the past. She has to learn to deal with this image to full embrace a relationship with Travis. Add in Andie dealing with Travis being younger than her and Travis past playing a role and you get a good read.

I wish the book had been longer. Their relationship happened quickly. I would have liked more time with them. Overall it is an enjoyable read. I look forward to reading the first three books in the Holloway series.

4 Stars = A Good Read

Book Four of The Holloway Series

Travis Yardley thought he had everything he needed, but one look at Andrea Patterson shows him he was wrong. Andie is a gorgeous, curvy, blonde, who moves to town to manage a nearby campground. Seizing the chance to get close to her, Travis volunteers as tour guide and “bodyguard.”

After a bad breakup, Andie is looking to start over and determined to put her heart on hiatus. She’s working on her self-esteem, and she is not ready for the likes of Travis. He comes on strong, with all the energy of a guy almost ten years her junior, which is exactly what he is.

Wish Me Tomorrow by Karen Rock Review & Recommended Read

Wish Me Tomorrow by Karen RockWish Me Tomorrow by Karen Rock is a heartwarming story that made me cry and smile. The topic of cancer will pull at your heartstrings just as much as the characters themselves. Eli and Christies captivated me with their journeys to find happiness in each other. Eli’s two kids added to the emotional journey.

The only downside for me was seeing the book end. I wanted to read more about these compelling characters.

I recommend this book to any reader looking for a sweet romance that will warm your heart. I’ll definitely read more books from Ms. Rock in the future.

4 stars = A Good Read

Note: I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Blurb from Karen Rock’s website:

Christie Bates worked hard to overcome the pain of her brother’s death as a teen, a path that led to her work as a grief counselor. When she meets cancer survivor Eli Roberts, she is touched by his obvious devotion to his children, all the more so after learning his wife left him during his treatments.

Yet no matter how drawn she is to Eli, Christie knows better than to risk her heart to the kind of loss that brought her to her knees once before. Except that, during the course of their friendship, Eli’s kids have already found a  place in her heart. And Eli’s strength of spirit has taught her to live – and  love- again. Soon Christie begins to see that love and family are worth any risk- even when forever isn’t guaranteed.

Fearless by Tawny Weber – Recommended Read


Fearless by Tawny Weber is a Cosmo Red Hot Read by Harlequin. It definitely lives up to that description. This book has great friendships, hot sex, and a dreamy guy that’s worth more than one fantasy night.

I love the interaction between Gia and her girlfriends. It’s great to see how they help Gia get her fantasy night with her crush, Luke.

The chemistry between Gia and Luke heats up the pages. The obstacles they face to find their HEA kept me turning the pages.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, hot read. I’m looking forward to the rest of the books in this series.

5 Stars = A great read (I would re-read this one.)

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Promising career: check

Amazing apartment: check

The best of friends: check

Sex life: MIA

There’s just one thing missing from Gia Renyard’s life: sexual adventure. And the one man she’d like to have it with is her hot co-worker, Luke Monroe. If only company rules didn’t prohibit her from asking him out. So Gia comes up with a plan: make herself over into a fantasy seductress, follow Luke to a convention in Sin City, and have her way with him for one erotic weekend. The man will never even know who did him.

Everything is going according to plan—until Gia discovers that Luke is perfect for her outside the bedroom too. And suddenly she’s no longer content to let what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas…

No In Between and Rebecca’s Lost Journals Cover Reveal

No In Between
Book #4 — Title is NO IN BETWEEN
The trial, twists about what really happened to Rebecca

Blurb – Sara’s POV as with the other books

Chris and I have faced our demons and bared our souls to one another in Paris. Now that we are back home in San Francisco, I want to believe that nothing can tear us apart. Not the accusations from Ava against me that I have not yet escaped or Chris’s fear that as I run to him, not away from him, he will destroy me as he feels he did Amber. Not Mark who had once been too intimately a part of our lives and who tries to act strong but I can see him crumbling inside out. He believes he is invincible just as I want to believe Chris and I are invincible. We have to be invincible. We need each other too much for any other ending.

Infinite Possibilities



Secrets and lies. They are everywhere: haunting her, tormenting her. In the midst of it all, he’d been her escape, her passion. The only person she’d trusted in six years. And then he’d made her doubt that trust, cutting her deeply. But as she’d once told him, she was damaged, not broken. She is ready to fight and not just for survival. She is fighting for the truth and she won’t stop until she has it, not even for…him



He pushes off the doorjamb, his dark hair a finger-rumpled mess that is sexier because it was my fingers that made it that way, and he starts walking toward me. Try as I might to keep my eyes level, they seek out and find his “Pi” tattoo, tracing the inverted triangle beneath the 3.14 that is filled with numbers and still, there is not even a sliver of fear. All I feel is my desire to shove him down on the bed, crawl on top of him and lick the darn thing again.
