Review:



I adored this book.

If you think you have solved every mistery in the first book of this series you're so wrong.
An Imperfect Engagement is even more engaging,it had me hooked from page one and after days I'm still thinking about that ending.Please give me the next book soon.

Alyssa Drake easily became my favorite writer of this genre,I appreciate the flow of her novels and how well I can visualize every scene in my mind.

I love how Lord Benjamin Westwood is the only one that can tame our wild heroine.Benjamin and Samantha relationship is sweet,funny and hot...never a dull moment with these two.

Goodbye Paradise by Sarina Bowen


Release Date: 03.21.2017



Synopsis:

Most people called it a cult. But for twenty years, Josh and Caleb called it home. 

In Paradise, there is no television. No fast food. Just long hours of farm work and prayer on a dusty Wyoming ranch, and nights in a crowded bunkhouse. The boys of the Compound are kept far from the sinners’ world. 

But Joshua doesn’t need temptation to sin. His whole life, he’s wanted his best friend, Caleb. By day they work side by side. Only when Josh closes his eyes at night can they be together the way he craves. 

It can never be. And his survival depends on keeping his terrible desires secret.

Caleb has always protected Josh against the worst of the bullying at the Compound. But he has secrets of his own, and a plan to get away — until it all backfires. 

Josh finds himself homeless in a world that doesn’t want him. Can Caleb find him in time? And will they find a place of safety, where he can admit to Josh how he really feels? 
**Warning: Contains a hot male/male romance, copious instances of taking the Lord's name in vain, and love against the kitchen counter. This book was previously released under the title: In Front of God & Everyone.**

Review:


I'm now fascinated by this kind of books so I've totally enjoyed this story.

I think Sarina Bowen doesn't like her readers suffering too much so she gave us once again a well balanced novel,there were some emotional moments but also plenty of smiling moments and some hot scenes,and a bunch of incredible kindhearted characters who help our runaways to survive in the real world outside the compound.

Josh and Caleb's journey is not easy,after they have lived in a cult for years they have to make some adjustments before to be free and happy.
I loved how Caleb was always there to support Josh and to help him to open his heart and to leave the craziness he was tought at the cult in the past.

I'm so curious about the next book I can't wait to read it.

Counterbalance by Kelly Moran


Release Date: 03.21.2017


Synopsis:

She’s a beauty, but he’s just a geek.

The world might think billionaire Xavier Gaines has it all, but he’s got a big problem. His successful software company is about to sign a government contract that’ll land him smack in the glare of the public limelight, and his lifelong battle with social anxiety has marked him as a cold, uncaring bastard in the eyes of the press. To dispel the unflattering image, he needs help, and there’s only one person he trusts with the job—Peyton Smoke. Gorgeous, kind, and funny, she agrees to be his media relations director and soon imbeds herself so deeply in his life, his world will crumble if anything upsets the balance. He cannot screw up their solid unit. No matter how achingly he desires her. Yet, how is he supposed to resist when she tugs emotions from him he didn’t think he was capable of experiencing? Especially since it appears he’s not the only one fighting their undeniable attraction. 

Ever-after just might be possible...if he can convince her to believe in love again.

Peyton Smoke is looking for a change, and working at Gaines Industries has given her the boost she needs to fill the empty void in her life. Xavier is the perfect boss. Under his seemingly callous, frigid demeanor lies a compassionate man who cares about causes and those precious few he lets into his inner circle. What she wasn’t prepared for is the smoldering passion suddenly flaring between them, nor the hot-as-sin alpha side beneath the layer of sexy nerd. Getting involved with him puts more than her job at risk. She’s been trampled one too many times, and she vowed never to leave herself vulnerable again. But the heart wants what the heart wants. If only she can figure out whether his feelings are genuine or if this is a mistaken case of gratitude wrapped in lust, then their shot at forever may not seem like such a fruitless hope.

Review:


I so enjoy to read of a millionaire and his employee and this one was no exception.
Kelly Moran's writing makes this beautiful book hard to put down.

I loved the connection between the main characters.Xavier,a geek with social anxiety,and Peyton,a beautiful sociable woman,need each other to be truly whole and happy but their journey is not that simple because they have to fight some of their past demons in order to accept their feelings. 
I liked so much the secondary characters,Xavier's lovely parents and Peyton's best friend that I hope will get her own book.

Savage Collision by Gwyn McNamee


Release Date: 09.01.2016



Synopsis:

The last thing I expect when I walk into The Hawkeye Club is to fall head over heels in lust. It’s supposed to be a rescue mission. I have to get my baby sister off the pole, into some clothes, and out of the grasp of the pussy peddler who somehow manipulated her into stripping. But the moment I see Savage Hawke and verbally spar with him, my ability to remain rational flies out the window and my libido takes center stage. I’ve never wanted a relationship—my time is better spent focusing on taking down the scum running this city—but what I want and what I need are apparently two different things.

Danika Eriksson storms into my office in her high heels and on her high horse. Her holier-than-thou attitude and accusations should offend me, but instead, I can’t get her out of my head or my heart. Her incomparable drive, take-no-prisoners attitude, and blatant honesty captivate me and hold me prisoner. I should steer clear, but my self-preservation instinct is apparently dead—which is exactly what our relationship will be once she knows everything. It’s only a matter of time. 

The truth doesn’t always set you free. Sometimes, it just royally screws you.


Review:


I can't believe I've waited so much before to read this book...please don't make my mistake and get Savage Collision right now.

This story is thrilling and engaging...there are some "WTF" moments and other times where you will held your breath.

Gwyn McNamee writing is brilliant,there wasn't a dull moment during the narration and the characters are well developped and unforgettable.

Danika and Savage sexual chemistry is clear since their first encounter but our heroine didn't know that domineering man will completely change her life,making her crave something more than sex.

I can't wait to get my hands on the second precious book in the series.

All I Want for Christmas by Jenny Hale


Release Date: 10.06.2016




Synopsis:

Snowflakes are falling, there’s carol singing on every corner, and Leah Evans is preparing for a family Christmas at her grandmother’s majestic plantation house in Virginia. It won’t be the same now that her beloved Nan is gone, but when Leah discovers she has inherited the mansion, she knows she can give her daughter Sadie the childhood of her dreams. 

But there’s a catch. Leah must split the house with a man called David Forester. Leah hasn’t heard that name in a long time. Not since they were kids, when Davey was always there to catch her. 

Now David is all grown up. He’s gorgeous, successful, and certain of one thing: Leah should sell him her half of the house. 

They can’t agree, but as they share memories over wine by the log fire, Leah notices a fluttering in her stomach. And by the look in his eyes, he’s starting to feel it too. 

Will it be Leah or David who must give up their dreams? Or, with a little bit of Christmas magic, will they finally understand Nan’s advice to them both about living life without regrets … and take a chance on true love?

Review:


This sweet holiday story caught my attention from the pretty cover til the last page.

All I Want For Christmas was more focused on family love and love for friends (old and new) than the romantic relationship between the main characters but after all this was a very enjoyable read.

I like how easily I could get into Jenny Hale's books,they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
