Love, Always And Forever by Alexis Morgan ~ Review

Love, Always And Forever
Sergeant Joe's Boys #3
by Alexis Morgan


Sergeant Joe's Boys are back! Bestselling author Alexis Morgan delivers a tender and inspiring novel about Mikhail, a battle-scarred firefighter, and the sensitive young woman who slips inside the walls around his heart.

As a child, Mikhail Wanjek couldn't save his drug-addled mother; as a young man, he left a promising military career because he couldn't defend the innocent victims of war. When Mikhail's feeling like a failure, not even the love of his adoptive parents and loyal brothers can console him. But after he volunteers to help his beautiful brunette neighbor install a fence around her yard, Mikhail begins to heal. He wants to shield her pure, unabashed lust for life from the darkness—including his own.

Successful heart surgery has allowed Amy Short to finally set out on her own, apart from her loving but overprotective family. Now she's experiencing new thrills with the chiseled fireman next door, from riding on the back of Mikhail's Harley to late nights full of passion. Still, he refuses to open up emotionally, and with Amy's history, she's not willing to wait around for Mikhail to change. What she needs to do is show him that together they can build something that will last forever.





The third installment of Sergeant Joe's Boys, is Love Always, And Forever, Mikhail & Amy's story and the final story of the three "brothers".... although it may not be the end of the series - I hope.

This super sweet story has both main characters hiding pieces of themselves from each other and plenty of angst and unwillingness to open up and love. Together, Amy & Mikhail compliment each other perfectly, Amy hasn't experienced enough of life and Mikhail has seen way too much of it. Spending time with him, Amy is finally allowed to spread her wings and she brings Mikhail the calm & peace he so desperately needs. If you are a fan of this series, as always, you can count on Sergeant Joe to be there in the end to share his bit of advice.

If this is the end of the series, then I will be satisfied....but I truly hope there is just a bit more...

Hot Witness by Lynn Raye Harris ~ Review

HOT Witness

Hostile Operations Team #9.5

A MacKenzie Family Novella

by Lynn Raye Harris
New York Times bestselling author Lynn Raye Harris adds her unique twist to Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with HOT WITNESS…
Eva Gray has a secret. Eight years ago, her sister entered the Brothers of Sin Motorcycle Club and never came back. Seven years ago, she vowed revenge,
even if she had to change everything about her life to do it—her look, her name, her face.
Now she’s stalking the Brothers and looking for weakness. She’s close to achieving her goal, so close she can taste it. But a prominent federal judge is now in ICU, and Eva’s the only one who can prove the club hired the hit.
Jake Ryan was once a Brother, but he got his life together when a judge gave him a choice: prison or the military. He took the military and he’s never looked back. Now, as a member of the lethal Hostile Operations Team, he’s accustomed to working on the side of justice.
So when Declan MacKenzie comes to Washington DC and asks him to infiltrate his old gang to protect a witness and get evidence, he doesn’t hesitate to do his duty. But little does he suspect that Eva Gray is a girl he once knew or that she’s on a mission of her own. A mission that could see them both dead before they’re through.
When the warrior meets the vengeful virgin, nothing and no one is safe…






Review:

WOW!!! Liliana Hart's Mackenzie Family & Lynn Raye Harris' HOT all in one fabulously steamy novella....can't get much better than this!

Jake's new assignment is to infiltrate his old MC and protect a witness all while gathering intel....That witness?? Someone from Jake's past! Eva has spent the past 8 years remaking herself into someone who could get into the local MC and find out what happened to her sister, if she gets caught, she could end up just like her...dead!

Although a quick read, this story has all the action, drama, and of course a smokin' hot alpha dude you would expect from Lynn Raye Harris and her HOT team. 







Lynn Raye Harris is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the HOSTILE OPERATIONS TEAM SERIES of military romances as well as 20 books for Harlequin Presents.

Happy Release Day ~ Hard Justice: Body Armor #2 by Lori Foster ~ Review


Hard Justice
Body Armor #2
by Lori Foster


Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…
Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she’s sweet and intriguingly innocent. It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.
Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it’s not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that’s real, raw and absolutely against the rules…



Coming from two completely opposite worlds, Justice grew up street tough and poor but with a loving family, Fallon a sheltered little rich girl with parents who were indifferent, can the infatuation between them grow into more?

These two characters were so much fun! Fallon spreading her wings after being sheltered most of her life and Justice trying to let her enjoy herself without getting into too much trouble. The attraction is immediate for these two but because Justice has been hired by Fallon's family to keep her safe, they deny, deny, deny. 

Lori Foster's words bring you into the worlds of these tough, protective, alpha dudes and paint such a vivid picture, you feel as if you are right there with them. Hard Justice is book two of the Body Armor series and so far my favorite.






Lori Foster first published with Harlequin in January 1996. Her second book launched Temptation Blaze and her 25th book launched Temptation Heat. Since those early days, Lori has routinely had 6 to 10 releases a year. She’s a WaldenbooksUSA TodayPublisher’s Weekly and New York Times bestselling author with over 50 titles published through a variety of houses, including Berkley/Jove, Kensington, St. Martins, Harlequin and Silhouette.



Token: Daring The Kane Brothers #1 by Kelly Gendron ~ Review & Giveaway


Token
Daring The Kane Brothers #1
by Kelly Gendron





USA TODAY Bestselling Author of Breaking the Declan Brothers Series, now brings you Daring the Kane Brothers! 
TOKEN is book #1 of five new shameless, sexy, and daring brothers who will make you blush all over!





I DARE YOU TO SAVE ME...

Retired boxer, TOKEN KANE is comfortable on a motorcycle but little does this Irish rogue know the next Harley he picks up will give him the ride of his life.
One week out of the year, HARLEY REDBOURNE puts away her good-girl and completely let's go. It's around the same time that her dark past resurfaces. But this year is different, when it's time to put her past away, the darkness wants to stay.




For the past ten years, Harley Redbourne hasn't had anyone waiting for her in the corner of the ring. She's had to go at this fight all on her own. She needs a cornerman, a trainer, a friend and as much as I don't want to toss in the towel, I know that I could be that for her  ~ TOKEN KANE






Review

Have you read Kelly Gendron's Declan Brother's series? If you have then you may recognize the Kane brothers. If you haven't...then what are you waiting for? Token is the first book in Kelly Gendron's newest series, Daring The Kane Brothers...a spin-off of sorts, of her fabulously sexy Declan Brothers series. It can be read as a stand-alone.

Token's boss has given him a job to do, bring back his Harley...but this Harley doesn't necessarily want to be brought back home. These two characters made me laugh, made me mad, made me melt! Between Harley's attitude and Token's bossiness it was hard to tell which one would win in a battle of the stubborns. For such a bossy, stubborn, alpha male, Token is very intuitive and able to read Harley like a book, which makes it fun when she tries to pull a few stunts on him.  Token is able to get Harley to open up about her past by sharing some of his...this leads to the discovery of a very traumatic incident from their past that they unknowingly share. 

Once again, Kelly Gendron delivers a fabulously sexy read with smokin' hot alpha dudes that will melt your heart and panties. Jax Declan has been my #! favorite character of hers (I still can't get that 'up against the wall' scene out of my head!) but Token Kane is a very close 2nd!








EXCERPT
“Touch me, and I swear . . .” I point at him. “I dare you!”
“You dare me now, do ya?” He stops close enough for his masculine scent to fill my nose, and laughs, his sexy smile spreading inside his beard. “Do ya know the meaning of a dare, my sweet little lass?” His eyes lower to my mouth.
My palms begin to sweat as I inhale him. Damn, he smells good, and it doesn't help that I haven’t eaten yet today. I’m starving.
“Yes.” I lick my lips, following his eyes as they move back up to mine.
“Then you might want to try another.” He leans down, his tempting lips so close to mine. “Because I’m not afraid to touch you, Harley Redbourne.”
“Is that a threat?”
“No. It’s a fact, and if you don’t get your stubborn little ass in my truck right now, I’m going to show you just how unafraid I am to touch you.”
“And what? If I don’t, you’ll what?” I stammer, stepping back. “Force me?”
“No, if you don’t do as I say, I’ll bend your stubborn ass over my knee and slap that naughty little tush until you learn to behave and do as you’re told.”
“Oh-ho, no, you won’t!”
“No?” His head swings lazily to the other side, eyes sparkling bright. “Dare me.” His arm comes around my straight back. He pulls me against him. “And I’ll show you just how unafraid I am to do that too.”

BOOK SUMMARY

He's been her ultimate untouchable desire...

Nothing says happy birthday like a rock god flying thousands of miles to surprise a woman he's never met. But that's exactly what happens to Gabi Smith when she gives her long distance best friend a flippant invitation to her laid back girls' night out. She never expected to turn on the dance floor and find Blake Kennedy's gaze holding her body captive.

She's his everything and he's never laid eyes on her...

Gabi means more to Blake than life itself. She's his strength, his savior, and the only person who helped to vanquish his demons. No one means more to him than his angel. So when things between them start to sizzle, he's ready to fight for the future he never thought he would deserve.

Skeletons from his past will threaten his only chance at love....

Blake has come a long way - with Gabi's help - to leave the hell of his youth behind him, but sometimes memories don't want to stay buried. Determined to stand on his own for once, Blake is willing to stretch the truth to keep his troubles from burdening the woman he adores.

Little white lies can create black holes in any relationship. Only time will tell if an Aussie with a heart of gold will forgive her bad-boy boyfriend or if the deceit will end his passionate addiction.

Flash of Fury: Endgame Ops #1 by Lea Griffith ~ Review

Flash of Fury
Endgame Ops #1
by Lea Griffith





Their spark is immediate

Kingston McNally lost men when someone betrayed his team, and now he's out for retribution. His quest for the enemy's courier leads him to Cameroon and Allie Redding, a petite Peace Corps volunteer as stubborn as she is brave. Their attraction is immediate, but Allie has secrets of her own...and she's not giving them up easily.

But their secrets could burn them both

Allie's life has been spent hiding in plain sight, but she's had enough of her cloak-and-dagger existence. On her way home, her plane is hijacked-and King saves her life. But that doesn't mean she owes him anything...even if he is the most damnably sexy man she's ever laid eyes on. He's got black ops and secrets                                      written all over him, and trust is a two-way street







Review:

I love a good romantic suspense book, I love action, adventure, and of course lots of the romance too.... Flash of Fury has all of that and more, a lot more. 

Okay, the more...Flash of Fury is the first book in what I will assume will be a series, that being said, the more I refer to is...more characters, more subplots, more background than is probably necessary.  Yes, I want to know the main character's teammates...but, a little goes a long way in my opinion. There was just too much going on (possibly to set up the next book/books in the series) for me, this took away from the main story of Kingston & Allie.

After dissecting the book, and focusing on Kingston & Allie's story, it was great...it was exactly what I want & need from a fabulous romantic suspense book. There were bad guys, fight scenes, action, intrigue...and yes, plenty of romance too. I just wish I didn't have to dissect it so much. This DID NOT, however, turn me off from trying again. I will indeed check out Endgame Ops #2 when it comes out.

As she got older, her need to devour all genres of romance–including contemporary, paranormal and sci/fi–grew. Any romance novels she couldn’t buy were borrowed or traded in her quest to read about that elemental emotion that keeps us strong: love. She still has most of those books; dog-eared, their pages yellowed with age, they still bring her joy.
Lea lives with her husband and three teenage daughters in rural Georgia and she writes her own stories now.
