All That I Am by Rachel Brookes


Release Date: 05.20.2017




Synopsis:

A kickass home décor boutique – tick
A sassy mouth and absolutely no filter – tick
A wall so strong no man could ever tear it down - tick, tick, tick!

Or so I thought.

Until I meet Detective Ben Hunt, the owner of exquisite blue eyes, a god-like physique and a seductive smirk that makes me weak at the knees. He charges into my life like a force of nature. No matter how hard I try to keep the walls up around my heart, he’s made it his mission to shatter them. I have no chance of resisting him, but I would make sure I won this tug of war.

Which was what I wanted. 

Right? When did the idea of losing myself to him start to sound so good?

I wish Ben was the only battle I faced. There’s a reason this small town needs a good detective. One way or another I’m going to have to brace for impact, because no wall I build can stop the new threat thundering toward Monroe. 

After all, secrets only stay a secret for so long around here.


Review:



I have seen all the author's struggles to deliver a satisfying story and I'm glad she finally set these characters free because All That I Am was a good and enjoyable read.

Sasha and Ben relationship is hot since their first encounter,there is never a dull moment in their lives. They are both bullheaded and strong willed,I loved their bantering and their romantic chatters.

I can't wait to read the next book in the series to meet again these characters and their varied group of friends.

A Girl Like Me by Ginger Scott


Release Date: 05.26.2017


Synopsis:

I’m not supposed to be here.

Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s stood between me and my final breath.

I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as if I didn’t need any more saving.

This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.

Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I shouldn’t.

The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.

I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together, we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.

And when the bad guys come calling, we will always win.

Review:


Wow the waiting was so worth it...A Girl Like Me is an amazing read.

Ginger Scott wrote a sequel as good and as engaging as the first book,the emotional roller-coaster that characterized A Boy Like You is still there and it kept me on my toes from the start to the very end.
Even if the author didn't explain some things I think that is not important because I focused my attention on the power of resilience,that is all human,of our heroine Joss.

I fell for Wes in the first book but I loved Joss in this one, I've really appreciated her growing since the beginning of this journey.
I hope to see these characters again in the future, in the meantime I'll keep them in my heart forever.

Sexy Motherpucker by Lili Valente


Release Date: 05.25.2017


Synopsis:

When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth—in front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl—you would think I’d hit rock bottom.

WRONG.

Let’s back this up a sec…

Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the Badger’s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend…until we cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan wanted someone who was “stepmom” material.

A.K.A, not me, apparently.

The problem? I’m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former in-laws, I say yes. We’re still friends, after all, and friends don’t let friends fake it alone.

***

Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws’ house, or in a hotel room where we’re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed.

I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling with this too wild, too young, too impulsive red head. So what if she’s beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I’ve ever known?

I don’t want to fall in love. I really don’t. The whole “pretend girlfriend” thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time.

But when it comes to Laura?

Hell, maybe I’m just not cut out for faking it.
 

Review:



This was the first book written by Lili Valente that I've read and I've really liked her writing style and the nice plot with low drama and some hot sex scenes.
I'm so curious to read the other books in the series.

This story has everything I lately like into a book,friends to lovers + single parent of an amazing kid is a perfect recipe to make me swoon with every turn of page.
Brendan and Laura journey was not simple,both of them screwed up at some point but I've particularly appreciated how they are not scared to open their hearts to love even if they have a lot to lose.



Goaltending by Jami Davenport


Release Date: 05.25.2017




Synopsis:

WANTED: single dad needs nanny.
In more ways than one. 


Martin "Brick" Bricker is living the good life. He's playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star. At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously —except hockey, of course.

Then a knock at his door changes everything. Suddenly he's the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn't know he had, and he's trading his playboy ways for barbies.

Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she's offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she's in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl's hot single father. 

Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn't want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life. If they fit at all. 

But one thing's for sure: Brick can't block this shot straight to his heart.

Review:



Goaltending was the first book in the Seattle Sockeyes Hockey series I have read and if the others are as good as this one I have a lot of sports books to read.

This story has all my favorite tropes hockey player + single dad and I couldn't not to like and enjoy it and Jami Davenport writing made it really really special.
I got attached to every single character and I hope to read more about them in the future. 

Brick journey kept my attention from beginning to end.He started as a selfish playboy and became a man page after page,redeeming himself with the help of a cute little girl and a lovely nanny.

Tracking You by Kelly Moran


Release Date: 05.23.2017


Synopsis:

Love isn't always loud. Sometimes it's silent.

Gabby Cosette has always been dubbed the good girl of quaint Redwood Ridge, Oregon, and being permanently put in the friend zone has left her dating life stagnant. With no prospects in sight, she clings to her friends and resolves to not let loneliness drag her under. So when the town Battleaxes set their matchmaking sights on her, she figures it can't hurt. Yet the guy they think is perfect for her just happens to be not only her boss at the veterinarian clinic, but her best friend. Sure, Flynn O'Grady is attractive and the nicest guy around, but going there with him would topple both of their carefully constructed worlds and there would be no going back. Even if he is starting to make her girly parts zing.

Having been born deaf, Flynn has already felt like an outsider most of his life. Aside from his brothers, Gabby is about the only person who's gone out of her way to treat him as more than a handicap. Which is exactly why he's banked his secret attraction for his sweet, beautiful vet tech. Except his meddling family is trying to play Cupid and ruin the best thing to ever happen to him. Without Gabby, his work as a veterinarian, never mind his personal life, wouldn't flow. Determined to ignore the antics, he's secure in the knowledge she's not interested in him romantically. But then a kiss changes everything . . . and he's wondering if taking the ultimate shot at love might be worth the risk.


Review:



I enoyed this book,while I was reading it I forgot everything else and lost myself in the lively village of Redwood Ridge.

I was glad to meet again the O'Grady brother and their vet clinic "patients".
Tracking You tells Flynn and Gabby's journey from lifelong best friends to lovers,with their fear of loosing what they have and their insecurities to not be good enough for each other.

I can't wait to read the third installment please Kelly Moran give it to us soon.
