Review: Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker Heartbreaker by Stacey Kennedy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars
'Heartbreaker' by Stacey Kennedy is book One in the "Filthy Dirty Love" series. This is the story of Maddox and Joss. Maddox is a season cop but only has one night stands. Doesn't do second nights or dates. Joss has just gotten out of police training and is now working under Maddox. Both are fighting their attraction that actually started a year ago when they met at a bar. Neither knew the other person name and they had a quickie in the bathroom. But the memory has been in both of their minds and they can't get over the hot, exciting encounter they had. Joss had just broken up with her boyfriend of six years when she had her sexual encounter with Maddox and to this day she still is holding a grudge against that relationship. Vowing to near get involved for long term again. When they meet that year later, they both at first don't acknowledge their first meeting. Maddox still wants her but wonders if he can trust her know that he is her boss.
This was a really hot and exciting read! I enjoyed reading how these two were coming together and getting over their past. I loved the epilogue..it always such a please when the author puts one in...like a 'cherry on top'.

Review: Over the Edge

Over the Edge Over the Edge by Meredith Wild
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'Over the Edge' by Meredith Wild is book Three in the "Bridge" series. This is the Pollyanna story of Olivia, Ian and Will. I haven't yet read the other books so for me this was a standalone book. I did enjoy this allot so I will hopefully be able to read the others soon.
Liv comes off as stuck up..prude I thought at first. Ian and Will are two dominating men who have shared a women a few times. Each man brought something different to the table but together they were a women's dream I thought. This was a interesting story to watch and see how they were going to deal with this new type of relationship for them. In addition, this was a hot read as you might have expected!

Review: The Highland Duke

The Highland Duke The Highland Duke by Amy Jarecki
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'The Highland Duke' by Amy Jarecki is book One in the "Lords of the Highlands" series. This is this the story of Akira and Gordon 'Geordie'. Geordie is a Duke who is in danger and has been shot. When Akira finds him he talks her into helping him and then offers to pay her if she can get him a horse. Geordie needs to get away as fast as he can. Akira is a gypsy healer of sorts who finds Geordie and tries to help him. When they are discovered by Redcoats they take off together. Geordie knows that Akira saved his life and he needs to keep her safe. Akira is just a commoner along with her family. Their family is nothing in the eyes of her village, but she tries her best to help them and others. Geordie being a Duke knows that anything that comes of Akira and his attraction couldn't lead to marriage due to her being a commoner. But with lines like this:
(Akira)
'Stop' she said with a gasp, her fists showing up between them. 'Why is it I have so much difficulty resisting you?'
(Geordie) 'Believe me, lass I am the one who has been rendered utterly powerless'

Akira was a strong women who knew her place, had pride and held her virtue as her only great possession. Geordie had allot to over come from his past but he was a strong hero.
I truly enjoyed watching these two grow and overcome so much. I even loved the secondary characters so much that I hope to see more of them!

Review: Only a Duke Will Do

Only a Duke Will Do Only a Duke Will Do by Tamara Gill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'Only a Duke Will Do' by Tamara Gill is book two in the "To Marry a Rogue" series. This is the story of Lady Isolde Worthingham and Merrick Mountshaw, the Duke of Moore. I have read the Previous book "Only an Earl Will Do" but feel strongly this can be a standalone book. This book was a second chance book for love that should have been from the start a happy ending but there was someone who prevent that for these two loves! Isolde and Merrick meet at a dance where they fall in love from the start. Merrick asked Isolde to marry him pretty quickly. But on the eve of their Wedding a jealous friend of Isolde set into motion a plan that destroyed their chance to be married. Instead Merrick was force to marry that evil friend. Now about 5 years later after Isolde up and left the town for Scotland she has decided to return to the town to find herself a husband. Isolde quickly runs into Merrick and they both at first try to act as if the past didn't happen. But Isolde starts to learn that Merrick is living the happy married life with her former friend as she assumed. Merrick learns that Isolde is back in town to marry...which is upsetting to him. Merrick is still married but the town has made a joke of his marriage. In addition, Merrick's best friend has his eye on Isolde for a wife. Can these two ever find the happens that they both deserve? This was another great book by Ms. Gill...and only makes me want more!

Dark Protector Cover Revel


Blurb:
From the moment I saw her through the window of her flower shop, something other
than darkness took root inside me. Charlie shone like a beacon in a world that had long
since lost any light. But she was never meant for me, a man that killed without
remorse and collected bounties drenched in blood.
I thought staying away would keep her safe, would shield her from me. I was wrong.
Danger followed in my wake like death at a slaughter house. I protected her from the
threats that circled like black buzzards, kept her safe with kill after kill.
But everything comes with a price, especially second chances for a man like me.
Killing for her was easy. It was living for her that turned out to be the hard part.
Author's Note: This is a full-length romance novel. Explicit violence and hot sex
included. HEA, no cheating.


Excerpt:
“Look.” He pulled his pistol from its holster, laid it on the dresser, and began
unbuttoning his shirt. “I realize this isn’t optimal for either of us. You don’t want to be
here.”
I tried not to stare at the gun, but I was already trying to figure out if I could get to it
before he could.
“You can’t.” He glanced at the gun then back to me. “I’ll always win.”
“Always?” I edged toward the door to what looked like a bathroom.
He sighed, weariness heavy on his exhale. “Yes. It’s what I do.”
“You kill? Is that what you mean?”
His face hardened, a muscle ticking in his jaw. At that moment, I realized how truly
terrifying he could be. Built like a solid wall of muscle, at least six foot five, with a
handsome face and eyes that went cold in a heartbeat. I swallowed hard and bumped
into the doorframe at my back.
“I’m going to need to patch this.” He jerked his chin toward his shoulder, but kept his
eyes on me. “But first, I’m going to take care of your nose and get you cleaned up.”
“First, you need to tell me why I’m even here.” I couldn’t keep the shrill notes from my
voice. “Why did Berty take me? Why is this happening?”
He reached behind his head and pulled his shirt off in a singularly masculine move.
His abs flexed, and his bare chest looked carved and hardened. Black ink trailed
around his arms and met in the center of his chest. “Death before dishonor” was
written between his pecs with a flourishing script. His fingers had individual letters on
each one. Scars dotted his body—some long gashes with dots on either side from
stitches, others that were rounded or jagged. He was a battlefield, his story told with

blood and scar tissue.
