Review: Love to Win (Fireflies #3) by Lisa Ricard Claro

I could spend hours in that gazebo!

Book Blurb:

She hates to lose . . . Competitive barista Brenna Kinkaid loves a challenge, and she’ll do whatever it takes to win, especially when it comes to her nemesis, Dante Caravicci. But when forced to team up to save their best friends’ wedding, Brenna recognizes that Dante might just be her ultimate win.

He plays to win . . . Restaurateur Dante Caravicci won’t quit anything until he can claim success. He’s bided his time, but he’s used to taking big risks and surviving, so he figures he’s got nothing to lose by playing for Brenna.

Hearts at risk . . . These two fall fast, and it looks like a win-win—until a competition pits them head-to-head and one of them goes way too far. A nudge from an improbable source may be the only way these two competitors will ever admit that the only way to win is to lose their hearts.

My Review:

In Love To Win by Lisa Ricard Claro, Brenna took an instant dislike to Dante from the first time they met and has never looked any deeper at the man.  Dante doesn't know why Brenna dislikes him so much, but he definitely likes her and has decided she's worth trying to know much better.  Living in a small town with mutual friends means they do have to see each other sometimes, and there is that one time that changes everything.  Slowly, and not without bumps, their relationship changes and grows.  Things are looking really good for them, but Brenna plays to win too, and not just Dante's heart.  Soon she might go too far and risk everything they've got together.

I had really mixed feelings about Brenna.  She was realistic mostly, smart, driven and loyal to family and friends...but when it came to Dante, she seemed to turn into someone else.  Someone I wasn't sure I'd enjoy being around.  Having said that, Lisa writes her character so well that she is believable.  Everyone has their flaws.  If Brenna was perfect the plot, what Dante and Brenna go through just wouldn't have the same feel.  I really loved Dante!  From the start he struck me as a man who had so many hidden depths, and I loved getting to know him as Lisa peeled away his layers and developed his strong character.  I felt for him and admired him.  He has worked hard to get where he is today, and he is strong, smart, and talented.  He keeps a lot to himself, and he has his reasons for this.  I felt that this was ok, it was how he was.  Brenna's very poor judgement was all on her, it shouldn't have mattered what had happened in Dante's past, but what was happening with them in the present.  I couldn't believe what she did, and the fall out was heart breaking for both Brenna and Dante.  Forgiveness is a powerful thing, but also a difficult thing at times, and I hoped that they could both forgive and move on to a relationship that feels like it was meant to be!

I really enjoyed all of the secondary characters in Love To Win, most of whom were in the previous Fireflies books.  They play strong roles in Dante and Brenna's story, and the connection they all have felt so good, like something everyone should have.  It was good to see where these characters were now, but Love To Win can be read as a stand alone without feeling lost.  (I do highly recommend reading the other books in this series though because they are all fantastic!)

Love To Win was entertaining, emotional, and a great book to lose myself in.  I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself for a little while in Dante and Brenna's world, and feeling like I was part of it.  With tension, conflict, hurt, love, and a little bit of push from an unexpected source, I'd highly recommend Love To Win by Lisa Ricard Claro to any romance reader.

Review: Brody's Vow (Colebrook Siblings Trilogy #1) by Kaylea Cross

Book Blurb:

A trained assassin on the run.

Trinity Durant isn’t accustomed to relying on anyone for help. She’s the deadliest of all her Valkyrie sisters, getting up close and personal for her kills. But this time, it’s different. When she’s injured on a job, she has no one to turn to except the handsome stranger holding a weapon on her. Since she needs to escape the city, she reluctantly accepts his help. Too late she realizes that he poses the biggest danger to her of all, by making her question everything about her life—and threatening her jaded heart.

A man unwilling to walk away.

When HRT sniper team leader Brody Colebrook heads home on medical leave for a well-deserved break, the last thing he expects is to stumble upon a mysterious woman in danger. She may be a stranger to him, but she’s a friend of his commander’s and now that Brody knows she’s in trouble, he can’t just leave her to be hunted down and executed. The moment he puts her in his truck it places them both in the crosshairs of a killer bent on revenge. She might trust Brody to have her back, but he wants far more than that. He wants everything she has to give, and he’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

My Review:

Brody's Vow by Kaylea Cross pulled me into the plot quickly and kept me there in an intriguing plot full of possibilities.  Trinity is an unusual heroine because it's not often I've come across a heroine who does what she does.  Her story fascinated me because it felt believable, like something that really could happen.  I really liked her, and liked being privy to her inner thoughts and feelings.  What she does has defined her for so long and I couldn't wait to see what would happen after this job she's managed to carry out but not escape from.  Brody is pulled into Trinity's world very unexpectedly, and once the connection is made he doesn't want to let go or let Trinity face danger herself...even if it puts him in the cross-hairs too.  The attraction is fast and it felt real because I do believe things can happen that fast, especially in Brody and Trinity's world.  Danger is a constant threat in the few days Brody and Trinity find themselves together for, and if they can put an end to the danger where will that leave them?

I really enjoyed this very fast paced book by Kaylea Cross.  Trinity and Brody are both strong, determined characters who are very different and yet in some ways so similar.  I really felt like I got to know them.  I felt for both of them for what they've both been through, but in particular Trinity.  I really hoped they could find a way to make things work in all ways.

Wyatt, Brody's brother, is a secondary character who really stood out for me and I hope to read more about him in future books in this series.

Descriptive and mesmerizing,  the intensely suspenseful plot kept me on edge and the romance kept me hopeful.  I'd recommend Brody's Vow to any romantic suspense reader!

Review: The Lost Sheenan's Bride (Taming of the Sheenans #6) by Jane Porter

Book Blurb:

Trying to get over a broken heart, twenty-four year old teacher Jet Diekerhof takes a gap year to travel and have an adventure. Her practical farming family is horrified until Jet's older sister Harley gets her a long term sub position at a one room school house in Montana’s Paradise Valley. Jet's grateful it’s 775 miles from her overly involved family—and the guy who broke her heart. She’s also sworn off men until meeting darkly handsome Shane Swan changes everything... 

Thirty-four year old Shane Swan has been an outsider since birth. Raised by his maternal grandmother near Flathead Lake, Montana, until her death when he was four, meant he ended up in foster care. But ever smart, determined, and ambitious, Shane has become one of the most successful writers in America. Yet none of his success has answered the burning question: why was he the one given away, and his brothers kept? Now Shane has moved to Marietta to unravel the secrets and lies and what it means to be a Sheenan, and nobody is closer to the Sheenans than Brock’s young sister-in-law, Jet. 

Normally Shane would never use a woman, but if Jet can connect him with the keys to his past, he doesn't seem to have choice. Until he begins to fall for her. Can two strangers, who were never meant to be, believe in love again? 

My Review:

In The Lost Sheenan's Bride by Jane Porter, Jet has found a place to heal her heart in Paradise Valley.   Shane, a successful writer, hopes to find answers in Paradise Valley.  He's in town to write about a long ago mystery that makes him very unwelcome...but he's there for another reason no one knows.  He's hoping to find answers to his past he's searching for.

The Lost Sheenan's Bride was a well paced, intriguing read filled with strong characters and mystery.  I liked Jet.  I liked who she was, that she stood up for herself and what she felt.  The Sheenan's are a close knit family, but they are not above trying to force their way.  Instead of meekly going along with whatever they wanted, I really liked how Jet was herself even if it caused some friction at times.  I liked watching Jet grow stronger and find the unexpected with Shane.  Shane has ulterior motives with Jet, but soon he finds himself more entranced by her than he thought possible.  As Shane searches for answers, he and Jet become closer and I was very interested to see how Shane's quest for missing pieces would turn out and if what Jet and he would work, because I really felt like they were a great fit.  At times I was frustrated with Shane and his big secret, but the family dynamics are well played in The Lost Sheenan's Bride.  I liked how Shane finally dealt with things, it worked well with the plot.

Jane brings not only Shane and Jet to life, but numerous secondary characters also.  I liked seeing the characters from previous Taming of the Sheenan's books and catching up with them.  I liked the family connections in this series and this book. 

I would recommend reading the other books in this series before this one, and would recommend them all to any romance reader looking for well written stories that flow off the pages.

Review: Wrong Place, Right Time (The Bourbon Street Boys #2) by Elle Casey

Book Blurb:

Jenny’s single-parent life revolves around her kids and her job, which means that hours of Animal Planet and strings of computer code are about all she has time for. Not that Jenny’s looking for adventure or romance—she’s the type of woman who believes in playing it safe.

When Jenny is called upon to do some consulting for the Bourbon Street Boys—a New Orleans private security firm—she knows she should stay away. They conduct surveillance on known criminals and put themselves in harm’s way pretty much every day, so No is the obvious answer…Problem is, there’s a guy on the team with a body to die for and a dimple that just won’t quit luring Jenny in, tempting her to throw all caution to the wind.

Will Jenny take the risk or will she do what she’s always done—play it safe and wait for the right time?

My Review:

I really enjoyed this entertaining read by Elle Casey.  I have not read the first book in this series, but had no problems just jumping into Wrong Place, Right Time and feeling perfectly at home!

I just loved both Jenny and Dev.  Jenny is smart, fun, cautious, and responsible.  It felt like it had been a long time since she'd had any time to be anyone other than a Mom, and this made watching her go out of her comfort zone so heart warming and hopeful!  She has a busy life between kids and work, but little does she know some consulting work for the Bourbon Street Boys has the potential to change everything!  The Bourbon Street Boys are a little mysterious and a lot intriguing!  Jenny finds herself in an unexpected situation, and does what she can to make the best of things.  I liked this about her.  She pushed on, even when she wasn't sure it was the safest thing to do!

From the moment Jenny and Dev met I could feel the sizzle between them!  They intrigued me as individuals and the potential they had together and make me want to keep reading.  I liked the development and pace of their relationship professionally and personally.  It felt right and it felt real.  The dialogue between them is well written, making them a very believable hero and heroine.  I really like how Dev was with Jenny too, and how his view of some things was so different from hers that it really made her think and start to see some things differently.  But will Jenny stay stuck safely in the past or strike out to a future full of promise if some unknown?  I couldn't wait to see!!

With a little suspense to keep the edge on, lots of heat, heart and great secondary characters, Wrong Place, Right Time was a book I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend to any romance reader who wants laughter and love with powerful characters.

Review: House of Secrets by Lynda Stacey

Book Blurb:

A woman on the run, a broken man and a house with a shocking secret …

Madeleine Frost has to get away. Her partner Liam has become increasingly controlling to the point that Maddie fears for her safety, and that of her young daughter Poppy. .

Desperation leads Maddie to the hotel owned by her estranged father – the extraordinarily beautiful Wrea Head Hall in Yorkshire. There, she meets Christopher ‘Bandit’ Lawless, an ex-marine and the gamekeeper of the hall, whose brusque manner conceals a painful past.

After discovering a diary belonging to a previous owner, Maddie and Bandit find themselves immersed in the history of the old house, uncovering its secrets, scandals, tragedies – and, all the while, becoming closer.

But Liam still won’t let go, he wants Maddie back, and when Liam wants something he gets it, no matter who he hurts … 

My Review:

House of Secrets by Lynda Stacey was a great book to fall into!  She kept me entranced with strong characters, a strong plot, and a great setting.  

I liked how I felt like I was immediately immersed in the plot, with Maddie as her relationship with Liam quickly escalates to frightening.  Maddie was at her most vulnerable when she met Liam, and their relationship quickly grew.  Soon she and her daughter Poppy were living with Liam, but their situation was quickly becoming frightening and out of control.  I really liked Maddie.  It was easy to forget how young she really is in House of Secrets because she is such a mature character who has been through a lot.  Her character is well defined and is an admirable, very likable heroine.  She is scared and not sure where to turn, but she does what she knows she needs to do while she still can.  Maddie's daughter Poppy is an integral part of the plot, because without her I think things might have turned out a lot differently for Maddie.  Poppy is a great example of how children can be such good judges of character...not only with Liam, but with other characters in House of Secrets.

"Bandit" is a strong character also.  A former marine, he hides a lot, and suffers as well.  I loved how Bandit and Maddie first meet, and I really liked watching a relationship between the two of them grow.  That relationship encompasses a lot more than just the two of them, and I liked how everything and everyone was woven together from past to present.

But even as Maddie and Poppy are moving on, Liam just can't let go.  There is a lot about him that Maddie doesn't know, and Lynda Stacey did a great job of building tension through out the plot.  I liked how she wrote Liam's character.  It was suspenseful with a lot of unknowns, and without being too graphic, Lynda did a great job of keeping me nervously on edge.

House of Secrets is filled with emotion.  I was entertained, but I could also feel the tension, the love, the hope, the fear, and sometimes just overwhelming sadness.  Family dynamics and the past play a huge role in House of Secrets, and I liked how this was done.  I might have liked to know a bit more about Maddie's mother and those circumstances, but that did not take away from the plot for me.

House of Secrets flows at a great pace that kept me glued to the pages.  I found it intriguing and exciting.  There is a little of something for everyone in House of Secrets...women's fiction, romance, and suspense.  I'd highly recommend House of Secrets to any reader who enjoys any of those!

5/5 stars!

Review: Driftwood Bride by Lenora Worth

Book Blurb:

Melissa Sonnier is desperate to find her own happily ever after as she helps her sister celebrate her beach wedding in Driftwood Bay, but it’s difficult to move on and find love when she can’t let go of Judson Duvall, a boy she’s loved since middle school, even after their last break up in their on again, off again relationship. But as she watches her sister exchange her sacred vows, she sees Judson, waiting for her asking for one last chance. He vows he’s changed. Can she risk her heart one last time?

After his latest rodeo related injury Judson Duvall is ready to hang up his spurs and always a man of action, defies doctors and drives all night to reach the only woman he’s ever loved. He begs for one last chance and is prepared to do anything to win back Melissa’s love. He claims he’s changed, but is it enough or is it too late?

My Review:

In Driftwood Bride by Lenora Worth, while at her sister's wedding, Melissa can only dream of having her own happily ever after.  She is finding it difficult to move on from the one man who has always held her heart but also broke it.  Judson has been part of Melissa's life for so long and he's not ready to let go.  He shows up unexpected and uninvited at Melissa's sister's wedding, hoping to finally get things right with Melissa.  A professional bull rider recovering from a bad accident, he has finally vowed to change his ways and wants Melissa to be there with him.  But Melissa isn't sure she can trust Judson again.  Her heart and body say yes!  But her mind is much more cautious.   Will Judson will Melissa and her heart back?  Or is it too late this time?

Driftwood Bride is a second chance romance filled with emotion.  I liked both Melissa and Judson.  I liked that they could talk to each other despite everything, and even if she wasn't ready to take another chance with him, Melissa was willing to listen to him.  They are mature and an easy to relate to hero and heroine.  There is a lot of emotion, tension and conflict in Driftwood Bride, and Lenora weaves it all together in a believable plot.

I enjoyed watching this new relationship between Judson and Melissa progress in Driftwood Bride.  I was very intrigued to find out if they could finally make it work, because I could feel that they both meant so much to each other despite the hurt and heart ache.  They get to know each other all over again and it happens quickly, but believably since they are so familiar to each other.  Forgiveness and moving forward is not always an easy thing to do, and it is a struggle for Melissa in Driftwood Bride.

There are great secondary characters in Driftwood Bride, in particular Melissa's family.  They are close, and this dynamic was good an added to the plot...because it is something Judson struggles with.

I loved the setting and could easily envision myself in Driftwood Bay!

Driftwood Bride is well paced and the perfect length for the story being told.  With good flow and clear writing, it was an easy book to fall into.  I'd recommend Driftwood Bride to any romance reader.

Review: Her Survivor: (A Black Eagle Ops Novel #1) by Vonnie Davis

Book Blurb:

Navy SEAL Dustin Frank can handle physical pain; it's his soul that needs mending.
After losing part of his leg in an explosion, the panic triggered by his PTSD nearly drives him over the edge. So Dustin retreats to the Eagle Ridge Ranch, a charming hideaway tucked into the Hill Country of Texas. There he finds solace in the arms of a shy beauty who reawakens desires he thought he'd lost forever—and who makes him want to lose control, just when he needs it most.

Kelcee Todd sees beyond Dustin's scars to the real man beneath: fiercely protective, strong yet tender. She wants nothing more than to feel his battle-hardened hands on her body. However, Kelcee is not the ordinary small-town girl she appears to be. Her brother is a killer with ties to the Russian mob, and after her testimony put him in prison, he's out and eager for revenge. Now Dustin is her best defense, even if it could cost him everything. Kelcee could never ask him to make that sacrifice . . . but she can't stop him, either.

My Review:

In Her Survivor by Vonnie Davis, Dustin is a Navy SEAL who was injured physically and emotionally.  He comes to Wounded Warrior Falls in Texas to recover at his commander's home.  His commander, ZQ, has more going on that Dustin knows though, and soon enough Dustin will find out.  Kelcee is in Wounded Warrior Falls for her own reasons, making her life there running the bookshop she inherited.  She is always on alert though.  The last thing either of them expects is to find is someone who makes them want so much more.  After an initial first meeting that does not go well, Dustin and Kelcee quickly rebound and soon both of them think they might have found that someone that neither of them was looking for.  The future is uncertain though in more ways than one, and choices, danger, and chances will play an important role in what that future might look like.  Not only is Dustin unsure of what his Navy SEAL future holds, but Kelcee is worried if she'll even have a future if the wrong person catches up with her...  Dustin will do whatever it takes to keep Kelcee safe, but what will be the ultimate ending?

Vonnie Davis explores PTSD well in Her Survivor.  It is an integral and realistic part of the plot.   With this realism and relevancy to life in the armed forces, Vonnie brings Dustin to life and made me really feel for him.  I liked the acknowledgment of what Dustin and others go through, and how it affects their whole way of being.  I liked Kelcee too.  She is a brave woman who did the right thing but is paying for it now.  I understood her hesitation to let Dustin in on her past, but at the same time I felt like it could impact him also, and sometimes it is good to have someone on your side.  Both of them want to protect each other which at times was endearing and at other times was frustrating.  Their relationship progressed quickly, and I liked how they admitted to their feelings and didn't run from them.  Their relationship is very hot and cold though, and at times tension filled despite the heat they create together.   Both Kelcee and Dustin have stories to tell, and together they are a couple that could fit.  

Her Survivor has a few sub plots running along with the main plot.  I liked them, but they did progress to a bit of an unrealistic point.  However, that did work with the main plot.

There are a lot of strong secondary characters who help bring the plot to life and I'm sure we'll see more of in future Black Eagle Ops novels.  The dialogue between all of the characters felt very odd and unnatural a lot of the time though, and this tended to distract me as I read.  I could feel a connection with Kelcee and Dustin, but the unnatural way of talking tended to pull that connection away at times.

Overall Her Survivor was an intriguing, well paced read that I'd recommend to romantic suspense readers.

Review: Ignite (Firefighters of Montana #3) by Nicole Helm

Book Blurb:

Lina McArthur has spent her life in Marietta, Montana, in the shadow of her doctor father. But now that she’s finally broken free and moved away, she is determined to figure out who she is out of her scrubs. Then she meets the first man to ever tempt her to let him take them off…

Dean “Ace” Clark has been on the run from a troubled and tragic past. When a work-related injury sends the smoke jumper to the hospital, his wounds are tended by the beautiful Dr. McArthur. Just one problem. He knows the McArthur name, and she’s connected to the past he desperately wants to stay one step ahead of.

Ace has never been afraid to jump into a dangerous situation, but falling for Lina might just be the biggest leap of courage he’s ever faced...

My Review:

In Ignite by Nicole Helm, Ace is a smoke jumper who unexpectedly runs into his past...a past he ran from and has stayed away from.  Lina is the Dr. who treats an injured Ace, a man who seems so familiar to her.  Both of them left Marietta, Montana for different reasons, but Ace is determined to stay away and not be found.  Lina is sure she knows him from her past, and the attraction she feels towards him is only one of the reasons she wants to get to know him better in her present world.  The attraction is on both sides, and as they spend more time together they leave the past alone, and instead focus on the here and now.  Their relationship grows and the chemistry between Lina and Ace is hot, but unresolved issues on both sides are still there in the shadows...and when the past confronts them, can it be as bad as it seems?  Will it bring destruction to not only their relationship but their relationships with others, or will they find the strength to face the past, and maybe have a chance at a future together?

Ignite was a fast paced story about two people finding their own way in life, then finding each other.  I was glad to get to know Ace better, having seen him in previous Firefighters of Montana books.  His youthful ideology and ideas of right and wrong drove him away, but even as an adult they've kept him away.  He made me feel different things as I got to know him.  Frustration because of how he continued to hide, sadness for what he had come from and went through, and hope that he'd open his eyes and see the future clearly.  I'm undecided how I felt about him because he has held onto the past tightly and it's impacted his entire way of being.  I could understand Lina a lot better.  She left Marietta to make it on her own, away from a powerful family with a lot of influence.  It would take a lot of courage to do this, to stand up to her father in particular, but she does it with no regrets.  She's doing what she wants to do to make her happy.  Lina and Ace seemed to spend a lot of time in their own little world, and I was intrigued to see what would happen when the outside world finally broke in.

I liked the secondary characters we did see in Ignite.  In particular Ace's sister who I could really feel for.

I liked the characters, but didn't develop a strong connection with them, and this made it more difficult to feel invested in their future.  The plot is good, I just had a hard time with Ace for a lot of the book.  

I'd recommend Ignite to romance readers.

Review: Ultimate Courage (True Heroes #2) by Piper J. Drake

Book Blurb:

Elisa Hall is good at starting from scratch. Leaving an abusive relationship in her rearview, she packs everything she owns into the trunk of her car and heads for refuge with her friend in Hope's Crossing, North Carolina. 

Alex Rojas returned from his second deployment as a Navy SEAL to find his condo empty and divorce papers on the breakfast table. Now he's building a life for himself and his daughter at Hope's Crossing kennels training younger dogs and handlers to search and rescue, struggling to adjust to life back in the States and as a single father.

When Elisa shows up at the kennels, it's obvious she's running from something. Luckily, the dogs and trainers at Hope's Crossing are more than capable of warding off trouble. And with every minute he spends with Elisa, Alex becomes even more and more determined to protect the woman he's certain he won't be able to live without...

My Review:

I am so glad I read Ultimate Courage by Piper J. Drake!  I loved it.  It was one of those books I didn't want to end, because I felt so involved in the plot!  Piper J. Drake took the theme of an abused woman on the run to a whole new level, and wrote a well developed, emotional story in Ultimate Courage.

Alex and Elisa are both powerful main characters.  Neither of them are perfect, in fact they are both flawed and have issues they are working through.  Neither of them is looking for any kind of relationship, but the instant attraction is there.  I loved Alex.  He is so strong and protective, and determined not to let his problems take over his life.  It is very difficult for him, but he works hard at it.  I loved how he was with patient, caring and very observant.  He saw more than she was telling him from the start.  I loved Elisa also.  She is brave, determined, and very strong.  I loved her as a heroine because she didn't hide her past, and slowly (but not too slowly!) opened up to Alex and his friends.  She didn't want to take help, but she did because she knew she had to.  She is very cautious though.  I liked that she wasn't a heroine determined to do everything on her own and she didn't keep secrets about her past.  I liked that she didn't paint all men with the same brush as her ex.  I admired both of these characters greatly for what they went through in the past to the issues they are facing today.

The developing relationship between Alex and Elisa felt very right.  I liked the progression of it and that it wasn't perfect.  I had high hopes that Elisa could put her past to rest and move onto a better future.  Both of these characters made their way into my heart, and they felt like real people as I was reading.  The alternating POV's between Alex and Elisa worked well to bring me into their lives.

The secondary characters are mainly people from Hope's Crossing, from colleagues to Alex's daughter.  They are a perfect fit for this story, and I loved the connection between them all.  It felt like a group of friends I'd love to be a part of.  I loved, loved the animal theme in Ultimate Courage.  It really helped make the book for me.  Especially Souze.  Even his doggy character developed well and grew through out the story, and I really liked how Piper did this.

Piper J. Drake writes the suspenseful, stalker part of the plot in a way that weaves in perfectly with romance.  Alex and Elisa's relationship and all it encompasses is the main theme, but who Elisa is running from is always there in the undercurrents, and you can't help but feel a little shiver now and then, wondering what would happen.

Ultimate Courage by Piper J. Drake had it all for me!  A mature, realistic relationship between two people I came to care about, enough suspense and unknowns to keep me a little on edge, and a host of secondary characters who all fit so well with the plot.  Very well paced with great flow, I'm not sure what I can read next that will compare to Ultimate Courage!  I'd highly recommend Ultimate Courage to any romance reader!
