Happy Release Day Cristin Harber et al. ~ Titan World Books ~ Reviews

Today is the day - the Titan World books are now available everywhere! Don't miss these incredible novels all set in Cristin Harber's Titan World.

availablenow

Did you miss what Titan World is all about? Here's a recap from Cristin herself:

 
I am excited to announce the Titan World stories! From military romance and romantic suspense to contemporary romance and paranormal, a few of my favorite authors have jumped head first into our heart-pounding world and penned their stories with Titan twists. You will see familiar characters from popular, bestselling series as they collide in fantastic collaborations! Plus I’m excited to introduce two debut authors who you may already know if you are familiar with all things Team Titan.
Please join me in welcoming the Titan World authors: Claudia Connor, Gennita Low, Jessie Lane, M.L. Buchman, Megan Mitcham, Sharon Kay, Karyn Lawrence, Amber Addison, Anna Bishop Barker, and Tarina Deaton.

Quick Q&A
Am I writing a story too? You betcha! Déjà vu will be Doc Tuska’s story. He’s not a Titan team member, but he is a familiar and constant face in the series—perfect for Titan World!

Which Titan characters will be in the other author’s stories? The authors had free rein. Some took on Titan like missions while others wrote backstories to characters and expanded on their families. They took scenes from current Titan books and expanded in a new direction.

What is the reading order of the Titan World? There is NO READING order (Even if one of the retailers has randomly assigned a series number. Ahem, I’m looking at you, Amazon.).

Okay, now on to the good stuff! You can order your books here:

Review:

I chose to review 3 of the 11 Titan World books mainly for time constraints, I did not want to rush these stories, I wanted to savor them over time. 

Here are my reviews for the three I did choose....



 Deja Vu by Cristin Harber (the one, the only, the original)

What a way to meet...Allie can't remember who she is and James is put in charge of her medical care. Dr James Tuska is not just a regular doctor, he is doctor to some of the most important CIA assets. When Allie is brought into the hospital with no memory and all banged up she is very suspicious about the story she is told, the only comfort she feels is in the presence of Dr. Tuska. After claiming to be his fiance, James goes along with the rouse because he is intrigued by Allie. Together they try and get to the bottom of the mystery of who Allie is and where she came from....

Another super sexy, action packed story set in the Titan world! This one will set your soul on fire for a certain handsome doctor!





Flightpath by Amber Addison (her first publication)

Flightpath is Seth & Madelyn's story, it's the story of young love trying to work through and coping with the ups & downs of marriage, family, & military life. They were sweethearts at an early age, they married young, and had to deal with Seth leaving for weeks, sometimes months at a time for his military career. Although she had numerous family & friends to support her, Madelyn always felt alone while Seth was away. Trying not to feel bitter towards Seth as he pursued his career was one of the hardest things she had to endure....until the attack.

Flightpath was such an emotionally charged read. The roller coaster of ups & downs these two had to deal with just drew me right in and took me along for the ride too. I laughed, I cried, I hurt...right along with them. What an absolutely wonderful story!

Flightpath is Amber Addison's first publication but not the first story she has written. 





Going Under by Anna Bishop Barker (her first publication)

Okay...first immediate impression...WOW! 
As in...incredible, fabulous, loved it..WOW!
As in...this is really her first book?...WOW!
(and the answer to that is YES it is Anna's first book)

Rebecca needs order in her life, she needs it like she needs air to breathe. When Max is brought in to work along side her, she has no clue how to handle his off the cuff, carefree ways. Max is intrigued by Rebecca's straight laced, buttoned up tight persona and does all he can to throw her off kilter. But Max isn't the only one throwing her life off kilter....a piece of her past, the one who made her seek the order she finds comfort in, is now back, and haunts her every move.
Max inserts himself into Rebecca's life and heart while doing all he can to protect her from the past.

Going Under was incredibly haunting and emotional, yet it still contained all the action, drama, and of course sexy times that I love in a great book!



Whether you are a long-time fan or a Titan first timer...these books will give you great insight into the wonderful place that is Cristin Harber's Titan world! 

About DEJA VU by Cristin Harber

harber-dejavu“Amnesia Allie” should’ve been one of Dr. James Tuska’s normal patients: another CIA asset who they wanted well-cared for and then sent on her merry way. Everyday work at his niche medical practice was never that interesting… until she claimed the impossible. “He’s my fiancé.” James had never met Allie, yet he couldn’t say no even if he was part of the Agency cover up. Now the Agency wants her dead.
Between the lies and the hiding, the woman who turned the CIA upside down with three words brought him to his knees.
And then Allie disappeared… Nothing would ever be the same.

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and best-selling author Jessie Lane comes an exciting collaboration…
lane-bulletsWhat happens when Titan and Ex Ops work together?
Terror has gripped the NYPD. A rogue snipper took out, not only the NYPD’s SWAT snippers and police chief, but several others. Now they must turn to the only person they can trust: Jared Weston and the Titan Group.
There’s only one problem. The Titan Operatives are currently tied up with their own missions. Unwilling to leave the NYPD hanging, Jared Weston cashes in a favor from Commander Jaxon Wall. Only, Jared doesn’t want to send Jaxon’s Ex Ops Team for the job; he wants to send in someone Jaxon has kept secret: his goddaughter, Billie Jean Beasely, one of the best snipers working for the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team, if only her male counterparts would let her prove it. The NYC mission could finally give her that chance.
Thing is, Jaxon Wall isn’t willing to send his goddaughter in alone. He wants to send one of his own men to help her. Chase Anderson.
Will Chase turn out to be yet another man who thinks Billie is less of a shot just because she’s a woman? Or will Billie finally meet a man who realizes she loves her bullets as much as bluebonnets?

About TWISTED DESIRE by Sharon Kay

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and award winning author Sharon Kay comes an exciting collaboration...
kay-twisteddesireRhys MacLeod is a warrior first and a hacker second. Preserving the balance of power among supernatural beings is his prime directive, as well as keeping it far from human eyes. The discovery of a man killed by magical force on a Chicago street lands him on an op he didn't expect. He's good, but solving this crime requires a call to the best of the best.
Parker Black of Titan Group never met a network he couldn't infiltrate. Along with Titan team member Locke Oliver and Megan, a scientist who witnessed the murder, they uncover a maze of encrypted files and unethical DNA manipulation.
Rhys is duty bound to keep all supernatural details hidden from his human friends, so identifying the killer becomes more complicated when clues indicate the perp isn't human. And when the murderer shows up at their location, every second counts before its true nature is revealed.

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and USA Today best-selling author Megan Mitcham comes an exciting collaboration…
mitcham-nevermineJillian Cooper never wanted Callum, until a dream morphs him from her best friend's husband to a singular nocturnal fantasy. Revolted by her own mind and loyal to a fault, she refuses to give the dream life. Still, it manages to make her awkward around her only family; Amery, Callum, and their two stunning daughters. As an orphan and an Explosive Ordinance Tech with the Navy, things have a way of crashing down around her. The world crumbling call came in the form of a single car, single fatality accident. Amery died.
While she spins in dizzying circles, the girls she's loved since they were in their momma's belly cling to her. When Callum's strong arms fortify them and keep them all from falling apart, Jillian's inner struggle reaches a breaking point. She does the only thing she can to honor her friend's memory...run to the other side of the world to contract for Titan Group, an elite private securities force in need of an EOD.
Callum Bradfield adapts and overcomes. Even after the tragic death of his wife, his core values as a Navy SEAL march him forward...to safer waters. His gig as mission transport for Base Branch—the special operations force for the UN—isn’t as adrenaline laden, but he refuses to make his girls orphans.
Things are beginning to regroup when Jillian bales on his girls—and him—without a word. To ensure she's safe, he hacks her personal information and follows the crumbs into Titan's database. Crossing that line gets them both under a microscope in the middle of a desert, searching for the proof they need to show their innocence, while he tries to convince Jillian he's more than just her dream.

Lying low at Titan’s exotic Abu Dhabi headquarters while the media furor around her rescue settles, Emme and Jordan explore a mutual attraction that is no longer young and innocent. Days in the desert paradise ignite desire and blur reality…until they return home, where Jordan rejoins his deployed unit and Emme is left alone to reevaluate her life and priorities.
Their passion was forged in the fires of combat. Will the home fires be enough to keep the burn alive?

Lori Foster ~ Under Pressure: Body Armor #1 ~ Review

Under Pressure
Body Armor #1
by Lori foster


He can protect anything except his heart
Leese Phelps‘s road hasn’t been an easy one, but it’s brought him to the perfect job—working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who’s threatening her.
What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who’d believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese’s ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honor. He’s the last person she expects to trust—and the first who’s ever made her feel safe. And he’s the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough…


Review:

The Body Armor series is a spin-off of Lori's Ultimate series, so I am sure we will see some familiar characters through out. 

Leese Phelps has finally found himself...the perfect job, the perfect life...but that all gets tossed out the window with his newest assignment, protecting Catalina. Leese knows how to do his job and he never gets distracted, but things just don't seem right with Catalina...who is actually the threat? Catalina has relied on no one but herself,  for years she has been an outsider even in her own family. How can she trust Leese with the one secret that could get them killed?

The attraction is immediate for these two... we have Leese who knows better than to get involved with his assignments and Catalina who has very serious trust issues - especially with those who are supposedly on her side. We get introduced to secondary characters like Justice (his story is next) and Body Armor Security owner, Sahara Silver. We also get to see some of our favorite fighters from the Ultimate series, Cannon & Armie.

 The sparks fly, the danger ensues, and we have another fabulous story from lori Foster.

Book: Undeniable Temptation
Series: Reckless Beat Book #5
Author: Eden Summers
Release Date: January 16, 2017


Haunted by a kiss.

With his destructive marriage behind him, Ryan Bennett can no longer deny his insatiable attraction to the one woman in control of his future. He needs her. Craves her. She’s the only glimpse of happiness through the building drama in his life and yet one drunken kiss has pushed her further away.

Tormented by what’s at stake.

Leah Gorman’s management contract states she can never act on her feelings for any members of the Reckless Beat band but Ryan has always owned her heart. No matter how long he’s held her captive with his deep soul and easy friendship, he’s off limits. End of story. If only her heart would get the memo. She can’t resist him. Even when their attraction gets in the way of her job.

The price of love is high. Is it worth the cost?

With Leah’s career on the line and Ryan’s reputation in tatters, ignoring their attraction may prove safer than risking everything they hold dear. They have to decide what matters most—their years of friendship, or a chance at love that will destroy them both if they can’t make it work.

Catching Zia by Becca Jameson ~ Spotlight & Giveaway

Welcome to the Spring Training series. Spring Training follows the lives of several major league baseball players as they deal with the fame and reality of life and love. This first book in the series, Catching Zia, features the second baseman and his desire to meet a woman who isn’t after him for his money or his celebrity status.
With two strikes against him, this baseball player is desperate to make contact.
Zia’s main passion in life is art. And she’d gladly spend days on end sketching the hunky man who stops to admire her work while jogging through the park one sunny afternoon.
Brett has been ogling Zia for days. The sketch in her lap provides the perfect opening. When it’s immediately obvious she has no idea he’s a major league baseball player, he relishes the opportunity to take a gorgeous woman out on a normal date.
But what Brett doesn’t know is that Zia grew up with a compulsive liar, and his omission is more than she can tolerate. Second chances are rare in this life, and somehow Brett manages to squander that one also. He’s got an uphill battle if he wants to fight for this strong-willed woman.
