Synopsis:

Heartbreakingly beautiful and devastatingly annoying, Timaeus Lambros, a deaf, former military translator, has just been assigned as my co-teacher for the rest of the school year.
His stupid-hot face gets on my nerves.
So does his well-fitting jeans.
Charming and gorgeous men like him should not be teachers. They should be locked away in a storage closet… with me.
But that’s just a teachers’ lounge fantasy with a big dreamy sigh attached.
Tim and I can never be a thing. He’s broody and closed off, while I’m the new owner of a one-way ticket back to Costa Rica, thanks to budget cuts.
But my Abuelita always said life wasn’t a fairytale. So even if Tim does have a magical tongue and a dreamy body, we still might not get a happily ever after.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Interpreter (Commander in Briefs #4)Interpreter by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every book in this series keeps getting better and better! Interpreter is book four but if you’ve read the series from the beginning, then you’ve already met Tim. There are so many amazing characters in this series. I’ll be honest, while I loved all the books, so far Interpreter is my favorite. Tim has had my attention for a long time and I was so impatient for his story. I’m also eager for Vic’s story too.
Kristy Marie has an incredible talent when it comes to putting pen to paper. Her books are angsty, emotional, sexy, and humorous. I truly appreciate the humor in her books because the premises are dark and even sad. Her balance of all the emotions is perfect. The attention to detail and the research that went into this book was so appreciated. I was heartbroken at times. Tim was such an intense hero. He had been through so much and his story is downright heart-rending and distressful. Tim is a strong-minded man. Also, stubborn. When he meets Milah, Tim slowly realizes that he is missing out on life by hiding away.

Milah, was the perfect heroine for Tim. She was beautiful inside and out. She instinctually knew what Tim needed and when. Rarely do you read about a heroine so attuned to her hero. They were soul-mates. Perfect together in every way.

I am so glad I got a front row seat to Tim’s happily-ever-after. It was so worth the agonizing wait! This is a series I highly recommend. Yes, Interpreter can be read as standalone but because of all the interaction with secondary characters, you’ll be eager for their stories. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

I’m sorry for not giving more details about the premise of this book but I feel you would appreciate reading all this perfection on your own.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Synopsis:

With Christmas and a family showdown looming, can she find a miracle?

Hoping to reunite her mother with her long-lost brother for Christmas, interior designer Hayley Stevens travels to Montana to hand-deliver a Christmas card to the uncle she’s never met. Finding her uncle is easier than getting him alone to explain her mission. Reluctantly, Hayley hides her identity to learn more about her uncle and his family, but it’s his handsome and enigmatic partner who captures her heart and imagination.

Architect and builder Blake Dennison is attracted instantly to the beautiful Hayley, but he’s suspicious of her curiosity. Can she be a spy for a rival builder? He’s been burned by deceit before, but as he spends time with Hayley, he falls hard.

Hayley knows she has much more at stake than fulfilling her mother’s Christmas dream, and when she confesses to Blake the real reason for her visit, his reaction is what she feared. He wants her gone. But Hayley knows how to fight for what she wants.

Another heart-warming story set in Sweetheart, Montana, home to The Starr Brothers of Montana series.

📝My Review📝: 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

of 5 stars

I’ve recently read a lot of Christmas romances and have enjoyed them all. This book especially was delightful. I loved all the characters, the premise and the fact the story took place over the Christmas holidays. In addition, I loved the family dynamic, the scene and small-town loyalty. This book also had all the feels I look for in a perfect romance. Written with care and attention to detail, this book will warm your heart.

Hayley and Blake…..

Hayley is on a mission to find her mother’s long-lost brother. Hayley’s mother hasn’t seen her brother since she was a child. He left town, never to return. No one knows why or where he is after four decades. So much time apart! Heartbreaking! Hayley does some research and finds a man in Montana that could be him. So, she goes there to find him and hopefully gain a reunion for her mother. I am not going into details because there is a bit of mystery and suspense that unravels over the course of the book.

Blake is an architect who works for Hayley’s uncle with the hopes to one day take over the business. Blake has trust issues caused by a previous relationship. So even though his first reaction to Hayley is attraction, he won’t let his walls down; afraid to be hurt again.

Again, I won’t go into details but I can tell you that there’s some angst and secrets that could destroy what Hayley and Blake are building. But I do promise you a beautiful happily-ever-after.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Synopsis:

Once upon a time, he was everything to her, except for one thing: her future

Christmas sparkles from every bough and window at the cozy Four Winds Ski Resort, where single mother Eden Kendall and her eight-year-old son are spending the holiday. A surprise marriage proposal from her boss’s son wasn’t on her Christmas list, but it’s the perfect excuse to get away and weigh her options. She never imagined her son’s ski instructor/Santa impersonator would be the gorgeous, charismatic dreamer she left behind years ago, the one who still owns a piece of her heart.

Cole Hagan has never stopped loving Eden and he’s spent the last eight years proving her wrong on every count about his potential. While he fights to save the resort that he helped to build by organizing a holiday concert, he decides it’s about time that Eden puts aside her list-making pragmatism so that she and her skeptical son can experience the true magic of Christmas.

Can this unlikely pair get a second chance at happily ever after?

Every Time a Bell RingsEvery Time a Bell Rings by Barbara Ankrum

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lovely, whimsical second chance romance with an angelic twist. I wouldn’t actually call this book paranormal but there is a bit of spiritual influence. I enjoyed this book very much.

Eden left her hometown close to ten years ago. She not only left town, but the man who should have been her forever. Unfortunately, Eden wanted a financially secure future unlike her parents had. She worried that Cole was too much of a dreamer and left because of that, a financially secure future might not be in the cards. So, she left, made a lot of money in a job she liked but didn’t love. In addition, Eden is raising her best friend’s son. Because of that, Eden believes she made the right choice. Unfortunately, Eden will question her decisions once she runs into Cole while on a work-related vacation.

Cole is a business owner and financially secure, to Eden’s surprise. Another surprise is the fact that while spending time with Cole, Eden realizes her feelings for Cole are just as strong. Could she have made a mistake by leaving?

I won’t go into details about how Eden and Cole reconnect. This was a magical story and you should enjoy every minute of it as I did. I will add that there is some angst and a whole lot of Christmas influence.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

A magical, modern-day Christmas Carol

Digital designer Emma Wallace is finally poised for her big break: kitchenware giant Johnson Cookware is looking to rebrand – and with Christmas around the corner, Emma’s long-held philosophy of work-before-play may just give her the edge she needs to win the account.

The only peppermint twist in her Scrooge-worthy plan? She’s promised her ever-patient, architect boyfriend Sam Cole that after spending the last three Christmases in her office instead of in his arms, she’ll make this holiday just about the two of them. But as Christmas Eve draws near and the deadline crunch threatens her promise to Sam, Emma finds herself visited by three boyfriend “ghosts” of Christmases past, who come bearing the gift of hindsight.

Will showing Emma her past romantic failures, as well as her early courtship with Sam, help her to see the path to true happiness in time to save her future?

📝My Review📝: 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

Boyfriends of Christmas PastBoyfriends of Christmas Past by Edie Grace

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Boyfriends of Christmas Past is a story loosely based on Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol with a twist. Emma is a workaholic and could never keep a relationship. All of her past boyfriends ended the relationship because her priorities were not with them. As the years pass and Emma gets older, her need to be the best at her job puts her current relationship with Sam in jepardy. Sam was a great guy; very patient and understanding however, he too, has limits. And when the final nail is hammered in, Emma will have to fight if she truly ants to have a future with Sam.

Emma is visited by a few of her past boyfriends. It is these men that help her to see the light. Of course Emma is driven by a fatherless childhood and a mother struggling to makes ends meet. Emma doesn’t want to ever depend on any man for financial security.

I very much enjoyed how this version of the story played out. It was fun and witty and the author’s version of the classic Scrooge was one I hadn’t read before. I would definitely read more from this author.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Six hot pilots are ready and waiting for you to take off with them! Pack your bags and get to the airport! It’s time to join the mile high club with a brand new romance series starting this Christmas!

Caroline loves Christmas because it’s the one time of year that she’s guaranteed to have all her kids together under one roof. They’d been coming to their winter cabin in Switzerland ever since her first born arrived, and it became a tradition the whole family clung to. This year everything changes when tension snow piles from her middle son bringing his first serious girlfriend along and all of her other children expressing their individuality in ways she isn’t prepared for.

Harvey doesn’t do days off, he’s not the vacation type, but it’s been a tough year as owner of Parker Airlines. He is so ready to spend some quality time with his wife. Much as he’d never admit it, his relationship with aviation came before his marriage one too many times this year. He is determined to make this Christmas all about his family, yet Mother Nature has a different plan and disaster strikes.

Can the Parker family weather the storm?

Grab this festive, must read if you love heartwarming Christmas stories with a sprinkling of sexy.

Cockpit ChristmasCockpit Christmas by Britney Bell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cockpit Christmas is the prequel to a brand-new series. In this book, told in the perspectives of Caroline and Harvey; parents to six grown children. The Parker family spends their Christmas holidays together. That is a family rule. Each of the Parker kids will have their own book. I must say that I am very excited for this series. I loved all the characters. Each of the Parker family members has their own individual personas. Each intense, and complex.

While this book is basically a short novella, introducing the series and it’s staring members, I thought it was very well written. All the feels are present. The family dynamic of the Parkers are love and loyalty first and foremost. I really am looking forward to the first sibling getting his book. I don’t think I have ever read a series where the whole family are pilots. They are established travelers, obviously. An aspect I truly look forward to is watching these pilots travel the world. Just from this novella, I believe the author will do an amazing job with scene setting. Her writing is believable and engaging.

I recommend this book, highly. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

When mistletoe is not enough…

With her only son still single, Mrs. Claus is rolling up her red sleeves and playing matchmaker.

Nick becomes a kindred spirit as they both remember what it’s like to live in the moment. Just as they think they found a fairytale romance, Nick discovers his mother’s magical meddling.

With Christmas Eve quickly approaching, Nick must decide if his love for Heather was the real magic all along or if it was just the work of Cupid Claus?

Cupid ClausCupid Claus by Sarah Fischer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was delightfully adorable and so perfect for the holiday season. Magical and uplifting, and will no doubt put you in the Christmas mood.

Heather and Nick…..
Nick is the only son of Santa Claus and due to take over the family business sometime in the near future. Nick is all work and no play which is exactly how he wants it. He is very serious about being the best Santa he could be so there is no time for relationships. Unfortunately, Mrs. Claus does not agree. According to her, Nick should be married with children by now. And so she, as well as her dear friend Cupid, interferes a bit. When Nick finds out about his mother’s meddling, things take a serious turn. Will Nick find his happily-ever-after? Can he trust his own feelings for Heather weren’t influenced?

Even without Mrs. Claus meddling, I felt a strong natural connection between Nick and Heather. I enjoyed the slow burn romance that developed between the two and how they both were complex characters that needed something or someone special in their lives.

As usual, I won’t go into details but I will tell you if you choose to read this delightful, fun, and wityy romance, you won’t be disappointed.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Meet the infamous Ross, black sheep of the family and bully extraordinaire.
I drink too much, smoke too much, screw around. I’ve hurt people, been in and out of prison. I’m a bastard, a beast.
I’m a goddamn bundle of joy.
I mean, my own dad tried to kill me, what does that tell you?
Then again, my dad did kill my mom, so maybe it isn’t just me. Who the hell knows.
The world sucks and I’m giving it the finger in every damn way, except…
Except there’s a girl. Pretty. Hot. Clever. She didn’t get the memo – that she should hate me, shun me, kick me when I’m down. That the world screwed us all over. She believes in the future – and sometimes she seems to even believe in me.
Big mistake. I’m bad news. I made her suffer in the past, and nothing has changed. I’m not an angel, not a saint. No good.
But for some reason I don’t get, I can’t let her go down with me. I find myself trying to be better for her, pretending to be someone I’m not.
And if that doesn’t ring some damn big alarm bells regarding my sanity, well… then I’m done already.

* This is the story of Ross, half-brother to Octavia, Gigi and Merc, set in the Wild Men series *

📝My Review📝:

No SaintNo Saint by Jo Raven

Between 4 & 4.5 Stars.
I have been a huge fan of this author for a very long time. It needs to be said because I might be a little biased. She hasn’t written a book that I didn’t love. Her heroes are so damaged and broken. Their pasts are some of the most horrific I’ve ever read. Jo Raven is not afraid to cross boundaries. Her books are not for you if you’re looking for a sugary read. I guarantee your heart will break and you will be so angry. So, so angry for what her heroes have suffered. And in No Saint, that applies in excess. You have to wonder how these young men survive the lot life has dealt them. They survive because they are strong heroes with strong heroines who will support and love them unconditionally.

In No Saint,Ross Jones is just surviving his days and nights. This isn’t easy to do when he is constantly tormented. The bully is being bullied. We met Ross early on in the Wild Men series when we were first introduced to Octavia. This book can be read as a standalone, however, I highly recommend you read the previous books. Ross has been an important and complex part of each and knowing about who he was will help you understand him. Maybe forgive him too.

Without giving you details, I found a few circumstances in this book to be unrealistic which is why I’m between 4 & 4.5 stars. But this is just my opinion so please take this lightly and decide for yourself. In addition, I wanted to see the antagonists in this book get what they deserved on the pages and not just an afterthought at the end.

Can bullies be forgiven? Can I forgive Ross for all the suffering he has caused? I wasn’t sure that I could. Fortunately, the author painted the pictures of Ross’s past which put me front and center at his own suffering. God, I wanted to hold him and hug him to me tightly. Fortunately, Ross had Luna and after she dealt with her own anger in regards to Ross’s bullying, she helped him to heal. She became his support. Support which he desperately needed. One of the aspects I appreciated was how the author grew and developed Ross and Luna’s characters. There was a lot of pain, a lot of history between them. It took a while before Luna could forgive Ross but not before she understood him.

This book is dark and intense. Very passionate, very sad and sometimes violent. But I promise, you will sigh with great relief and happiness in the end.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

A Christmas in Last Stand brings unexpected gifts to two very different people…

Detective Sean Highwater may be one of the famous Highwaters, but he has always felt a half-step off because of the way his agile mind works. Only learning to focus has enabled him to not just survive, but thrive.

Elena de la Cova is from a respected and highly regarded founding family, brought up with rather stringent expectations, but right now she is a widow trying to raise a son she doesn’t understand.

If Last Stand had royalty, in Sean’s book it would be elegant Elena. He’s willing to help her son as he had been helped, but being that close to Elena scares him to death since he’s been in awe of her for years. Elena is impressed both with the way Sean gets through to her son, and with his appreciation for the Christmas customs of her culture as much as his own.

Their perceptions of each other shift, but will the passion that strikes between them be enough to overcome their perceptions of themselves?

A Lone Star Christmas (Texas Justice, #3)A Lone Star Christmas by Justine Davis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A beautifully written, complex and passionate story. Two people who have been through great tragedy and heartbreak will find love and acceptance with each other and a future that is beautifully bright.

Sean Highwater is an intelligent man. He is one of Last Stand’s detectives and a man who thrives on solving puzzles whether they be for policework, fun or just life in general. Sean has always had a thoughtful way of thinking and not a big fan of social situations. Childhood bullies have made him wary and cautious. Because of this, Sean has led a rather lonely life. With the exception of his family, the rare individuals that truly understand him, Sean is decidedly content. As for a significant other? For the last decade there has only been one woman to hold his attention. Elena de la Cova. To Sean she is Last Stand royalty. A beautiful, elegant woman who carries herself with a regal air. Elena is not pretentious or snobbish. She is a widow with a ten-year-old son.

Over the course of the book, Sean and Elena will find themselves in each other’s company more often then not. Sean will eventually learn that Elena, while elegant, beautiful and what he describes as regal, is most definitely attainable for a quiet introvert such as himself.

I won’t go into details but I will say I enjoyed Sean and Elena’s story very much and named it as one of my favorite holiday reads. I definitely recommend this book, which while part of a series, can be read as a standalone. In fact, I am looking forward to reading about the other Highwater siblings.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Synopsis:

Five Things. That’s the title of the video I’m watching. Each day, a social media coordinator picks a fireman from the Hightower Hills Fire Rescue Station 99 to interview, and she asks him ‘five things’ about himself that the community may not know. I keep rewinding back to the man of my desire—Corbin Carmack.
If you ask me five things about myself that people may not know, it would go a little something like this:
1. I love a man with brown eyes.
2. I’ve never wanted a stranger as much as I do him.
3. I’m going to extremes that could get me tossed in jail just to steal glimpses of him.
4. For the last two months I’ve blown off friends, family, and everything in between just to stay up late at night and watch this video as I pleasure myself to sleep.
5. I set my house on fire to meet him.

In my defense, I never meant for there to be so much smoke. And I never meant to pass out before my firefighter hero could save me.
But, looks can be deceiving, and this firefighter is nothing like he portrays on social media. In fact, he’s much worse. He’s a cold-hearted bastard and I hope I never have to see him again.
But I do.
Because now he seems to appear everywhere I go. And I can’t get enough.

📝My Review📝:  5 Flaming Stars….. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Cold Hearted BastardCold Hearted Bastard by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy Five Alarm Hotness!

Fantastic! Funny, witty, sexy and an overall 5 Star read.

Wow! Just Wow!

I’m going say it simply; I loved this book! For me, the laughter started on the very first pages. What an outrageous character Olivia was. While I was reading, goosebumps overcame me. Olivia was a character I connected with categorically, on a crazy, level. I might have done or thought of a few of the crazy things Olivia did during my teen years, just saying, lol. However, let me be clear….never have I set my kitchen on fire! 🙂

Corbin was an incredible hero. Was he a jerk as the title suggests? Maybe…. I’ll tell you, once I got to know Corbin, which is pretty early on in the story, I didn’t have a single negative opinion of him. In fact, it was Olivia I found myself frustrated with now and then but nothing too awful. You’ve obviously read the synopsis, so you can infer the premise very easily. I’m not going into details. This book is like a beautifully wrapped gift. As you peel away the layers, anticipating the surprise, your excitement will keep growing. As you read on, you’ll love and appreciate that Olivia and Corbin got to know each other before intimacy. As silly as some of this story was to read, the plot and relationship development were believable.

Another great aspect of the author’s writing was the pace. Steady to fast; I couldn’t get to the happily-ever-after quick enough. Even better are the two epilogues. Still laughing!

I definitely recommend this book as a must read.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
