REVIEW: One In A Million by Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor #12)

 

One In A Million
(Lucky Harbor #12)

by Jill Shalvis

4 HEARTS
4 Hearts
From Goodreads

As the brains behind wedding site TyingTheKnot.com, Callie sees it all: from the ring to the dress, the smiles . . . to the tears. It’s that last part that keeps her single and not looking. Getting left at the altar will do that to a girl. But when Callie returns to her old hometown, she finds that her sweet high school crush is sexier than ever. And he makes it hard to remember why she’s sworn off love . . .

Tanner is a deep-sea diver with a wild, adrenaline-junkie past—and now his teenage son is back in his life. How can Tanner be a role model when he’s still paying for his own mistakes? It’s hard enough that gorgeous Callie has appeared in town like a beautiful dream, challenging his best-laid plans to keep his heart on lockdown. Though there’s something about being around her again that makes him feel like he can be the man she—and his son—deserve. Little Lucky Harbor holds their past; can it hold a beautiful new future?

My Review Final

One in a Million was so bittersweet for me. It’s the 12th and final book of the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. Although, this was not my favorite book of the series it was very good. Now, it’s all over! My heart is breaking. Thank goodness for the Animal Magnetism series or I may very well lock myself in my room and never come out. Sorry, back to my review of One in a Million. This book was good for so many reasons – the secondary characters being one of them.

How awesome is this? Our heroine is none other than Lucille’s grand-daughter Callie. Callie is a great character. She runs her own wedding planning site, yet she doesn’t believe in love. This comes in handy when meeting Tanner. He’s crashed and burned in his own love life, so the thought of a no-strings attached fling with Callie is the perfect arrangement for the both of them. Let’s not forget that Lucille is on the case and no one stands a chance when she uses her matchmaking superpowers.

Poor Tanner has a ton on his plate and things just keep piling up. His angry teenage son has moved in and Tanner is trying to establish a relationship with him. How on earth he’s supposed to do it he has no idea. After all, he had his own issues as a teen and made it out on the good side by sheer luck and willpower. But, he wants nothing more than to make up for lost time. Definitely not the time to start dating. Which is perfect since Callie is on the same page.

I liked Callie and Tanner. They had some really cute moments that made me smile and sigh. But, the secondary characters made this book. I am so going to miss this town and its wonderful and crazy characters. Ms. Shalvis I thank you for sharing the town of Lucky Harbor.

Thank you to NetGalley.com for the loan of this book in exchange for an honest review.

vandal_teaser8aExclusive Excerpt:

I slowly walk down the dark hallway and stop at Katie’s doorway. Her pink nightlight is on, illuminating the room. I don’t want to go in, but I can’t stop myself. The mix of her presence and her void is completely overwhelming, and I fall to my knees in the middle of the room. The pain in my chest is like nothing I have ever felt before, as if my heart is being ripped from my body and sliced into tiny pieces. I want her back so bad. I want to just feel her tiny hand in mine and tuck her into bed.

Lifting my head, my eyes fall on Teddy, Katie’s coveted bear that she left here to ‘take care of me’. I crawl to the small bed and lie my head next to the little bear that, just a few days ago, we tucked into her blankets together until she’d be back. Pressing my face against the little bear, I can’t hold back my tears anymore.

Vandal Synopsis:

amazonShe takes my breath away; she is so beautifully damaged.

Yes I had broken her, ravished her life, destroyed her happiness. I brought her to ultimate despair. I was responsible for all the pain and suffering that now brought her to her knees in front of me.

Broken.

Hopeless.

Reckless in her agony.

She is a mirror of my own tortured soul.

But what I took away I can give back.

In ways she cannot even begin to imagine.

She is everything right in all my wrongs.

She loves me. She needs me.

She has no idea I’m the one who wrecked her life.

REVIEW: Caressed by Shadows by Amanda J. Greene

 

Caressed by Shadows

(Rulers of Darkness #4)

By: Amanda J. Greene

4 HEARTS

4 Hearts

From Goodreads

Black Knight, Falcon Kenwrec is powerful, relentless, and fiercely loyal, his only allegiance – to his king. But he is torn between duty and desire when the war between the vampire clans and the Red Order hunters escalates and the enemy captures the one woman he longs to claim as his own, Sonya Rebane, Queen of the Voidukas Clan. Falcon will risk everything to save her, even if it means forsaking his king.

After weeks of imprisonment, Sonya is stunned when the chivalrous knight that she has secretly loved from afar appears outside her cell. As they fight and struggle to elude their enemies, they must battle their overwhelming attraction for each other and their love that is forbidden.

As every perilous moment draws them closer together, every smoldering kiss drives them to the brink of a passionate destruction. Will they be able to resist temptation? Or will their love be their ruin?

My Review FinalI have been waiting anxiously for Falcon and Sonya’s story for what seems like forever. They were so about each other and I’m so glad their story didn’t disappoint. The Journey they go on really proves how perfect they are for each other.

I have loved Falcon since the beginning. He captured me and made me want to know everything about him. He is the epitome of loyal, it knows no bounds. He was respectful and honest, and always looked out for the well-being of others. He knew his place and was dedicated to doing his duty. He always had a strong sense of honor, a perfect warrior in every way. I found all of these qualities to really show how genuine and passionate of a man he was. He took pride in his position and loved everyone around him. He isn’t easily rattled, but when it comes to Sonya, nothing else matters. I loved the struggle in him. To see that Sonya was so important to him that he would risk everything for her was beautiful. It was nice to see someone so in love that they would do anything. It really played to the romantic in me. The passion and love he had for Sonya was a treasure.

Sonya is the kind of woman I’d like to  be. She can kick your ass to hell and back, but she is also capable of equal passion. She is danger in a body of beauty. She is respected just as much as she is feared. And although she is so formidable, I found her relate-able because deep down she was a pure-hearted woman in love. She knew the rules, she but loved anyway. She gave her all and was determined to make the best of everything. She was never a weak-willed woman, always planning, always calculating. But when it came to Falcon, all bets were off. Everything was instinctual, emotional. It was an all-consuming, uncontrollable lust that exploded into a kind of love that would last an eternity.

I have to say this story is my favorite so far. I was so in love with both Falcon and Sonya, it was great to see them finally get their happily ever after. I wonder who is next to catch the love bug.

Excerpt Final

Pressing his forehead to mine, he closed his eyes and squeezed them tight. “How can you love me?” he asked, his voice gruff. “I do fucked up things that hurt the people closest to me. I can’t promise you that’ll change.”

“No, but you can promise me you’ll try. That’s good enough for me.”

His heated gaze landed on mine, his breaths deep and raspy. The raw energy radiating from him made me tremble in anticipation. “You just fucked up, buttercup,” he growled low. Lifting me in his arms, he carried me off the dock and laid me down on the grass, his body hard on top of mine.

“Why is that?” I whispered. He pushed his cock against me and I moaned, desperately aching to feel him inside me.

“You have awakened something I never knew existed. It rips at my soul and scares the fuck out of me, yet it also makes me feel alive. I don’t want to let it go. I don’t want to let you go.” Lowering his head, he kissed my cheek and trailed his lips down to my neck.

“What are you saying?” I asked.

He brushed his thumb across my lips and lifted his head. “I don’t know if what I feel is love. I’ve never had it before. But goddamn, it sure does feel like it. Whatever happens between us, I can’t let it end. Tell me you don’t want it to.”

I moaned as he lifted my tank top and bra and tossed them to the ground. “I want us to be together, Camden. We don’t know what’s going to happen once everything’s over, but I can promise you my love will not change . . . even when you go back home.”
 

 






 

A FIGHTER’S DESIRE – PART ONE

Two is always better than one.

What would you do if you were given the chance to spend the night with not one, but two fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures they offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next round?

It was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. The only problem was that if you didn’t pass their test on the first night, then you didn’t proceed to the next round. They loved a good fight, and that’s what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.

Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a proposition, and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them … or so she thought. The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. However, it was one that she was going to enjoy.

A FIGHTER’S DESIRE – PART TWO

 

When you’re told to stay away from someone or something it only drives the urge to go after it more. In this case, that was exactly what happened. For years, Gabriella Reynolds—younger sister of MMA’s Heavyweight Champion, Matt Reynolds—was warned by him to stay away from his fighter friends; she deserved better and they would only break her heart.

Did she listen? Yes, for a while, but temptation can only consume you so much until you fall into its trap. There’s a certain fighter she’s interested in, and it just so happens that he’s her brother’s best friend, the only one that is completely off limits to her. However, she’s not the only one fighting temptation. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, but he’s afraid she’ll want more and he can’t give that to her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes.

Secrets can be dangerous, but they can also be thrilling and intense. Gabriella and Tyler have no choice but to keep their time together a secret … and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

Excerpt Final
PART 1

“You don’t even know me,” I challenged. “Why do you want me to be your date? You saw me for one second when you were up in the ring. I could be the biggest bitch in the world for all you know.”

“That could be true. If you want the honest truth,” he said, gazing down my body, “I saw you in that red dress and all I could think about was how hot it would be to fuck you in it.”

Holding in my gasp, I tightened my legs together to keep my clit from throbbing out of control. It pissed me off that my body responded to him, but it could also be because he was so close; brushing his heated body against mine, and smelling so amazingly delicious. The wild side of me wanted to tell him to take me right then and there, but the logical side wanted to slap the shit out of him.

“Do you honestly get women by saying stuff like that?” I asked dryly, without a hint of a smile.

His grin grew wider. “Most of the time. So what do you say? Do you want to be my date for the night … the whole night?”

Yes, my mind screamed at me.

“No,” I snapped, making his smug smile disappear. “I’m not one of your little groupies, Ryley, and I sure as hell am not going to beg for your attention like what you’re used to. You need to find someone else. I’m not interested.”

You just lied again, I scolded myself.

Turning on my heel, I headed for the door and opened it, only to be stopped by a hand grasping my arm and the door shutting quickly in front of me. “Don’t you see? I don’t want anyone else. I saw you and you are what I want.”

Laughing, I turned around and yanked my arm out of his hold. “Tell that to someone who’ll believe you, Ryley. I don’t fall that easily, especially for someone who hasn’t had to work for a woman. You’ll have to do much better than that.”

Or else I’m not going to play the game.

 

PART 2

Breathing hard, I stepped out of Tyler’s reach and started for the door, much to his dismay. “Why are you here, Gabriella?”

Keeping my back to him, I paused with my hand on the knob, and blew out a heavy sigh. “I told you. When I want something, I get it. I wanted to see you.”

“You’re walking a dangerous line, Gabriella. I don’t do relationships, and I don’t plan on starting … even if it is with you.”

I glanced at him over my shoulder. “Well, then I guess it’s a good thing I don’t want one with you either. Look, Tyler, I’m only here for the weekend. If you want to see me again you know how to find me. No strings, just you and me.”

 

TYLER’S UNDOING

 

She was what he wanted … but she was also his undoing.

Through mutual understanding, Tyler’s secret affair with Gabriella Reynolds has come to an end. It’s a decision that not only saves their friendship, but it’s one that will change his life forever.

For the past couple of years, Tyler Rushing has been known as one of the UFC’s most memorable and sexy heavyweight fighters. Now he has the chance to win the title and claim the fame he so deserves. He has everything he could ever want until Kacey Andrews walks through the door of his gym, wanting nothing to do with him. Keeping his eyes off of her is a challenge; there’s an innocence about her that draws him to her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Little does he know that Kacey Andrews isn’t a stranger. She’s a part of his world; he just doesn’t know it. It’s a secret she’s worked hard to keep hidden.

Kacey spent years trying to get away from the fighting world, away from the man who’s hated among the MMA elite … her brother, Kyle Andrews. Unfortunately, she’s brought back into it when Tyler’s relentless battle for her heart wins her over, drawing her in. The only problem is that secrets never stay buried forever. In the end, Tyler has a decision to make, and it’s one that can possibly destroy his and Kacey’s life … forever.

Excerpt Final
“I have one more question for you,” she murmured, leaning her head against the seat and biting her lip provocatively. Her skin tight green T-shirt hung so close to her skin I could see her nipples peeking through the fabric; I wanted to taste them, to roll my tongue around them and make them pucker more. I wanted to taste all of her.

“What’s the question?” I growled low, watching her tongue slide across her lips.

Slowly, she moved forward and stopped only an inch away from me, her mouth so achingly close. It killed me to keep my calm, to not pick her up, carry her into my house, throw her on my bed, and just fuck her like I’d been dying to do since the day I met her. I had never wanted someone so bad and not be able to have them.

“I’m ready for you, Tyler. Are you ready for me?”

Grasping the back of her neck, I brought her closer and gently nipped her bottom lip making her gasp. “You have no fucking idea.”

 

Ryley’s Revenge

UFC Middleweight fighter, Ryley Jameson, swore it would never happen again. He was done with his ex, and over the pain she’d inflicted when she left him. At least, that’s what he tells people. Maybe if he says it enough, he’ll begin to believe it himself.

Regretting her decision to let Ryley go, Ashleigh Warren comes back into town and confronts him. Holding only one secret back, she puts the rest on the line and asks for a second chance. Too bad he’s not going to let her off easy.

Camden Jameson loves his twin brother, but his jealousy runs deep. They may be identical in looks, but that’s where the similarities end. When Ashleigh comes back into Ryley’s life, Camden has the perfect opportunity for revenge. Two birds, one stone.

A journey to the Dark Side affects them all, but only one feels the true sting of revenge.

Excerpt Final

KING

CHAPTER 1

 

I can still remember the first time I saw him…

He’s seventeen hands high, a dark bay, almost black, a white star on his forehead, and two white socks on his hind legs. I’m fifteen years old when I spy King bucking and rearing and giving the grooms a terrible time. I think he’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

I point straight at him, “I want that horse.”

My father (otherwise known as the Colonel) rolls his eyes. “No, he’s wild. You just want him because he’s difficult like you.”

We’re at our neighbors, the O’Rileys, on a crisp Sunday morning. Jim O’Riley owns Starlight stables and is one of the best horse trainers in Connecticut. Jim winks at me. “For God’s sake, Colonel, everyone knows you made a ton of money in the stock market. Let her have the damn horse.”

“I said no,” shrieks the Colonel, remaining unconvinced. “Besides, who’ll train her?”

“I will,” Billy O’Riley, Jim’s oldest son, steps forward. His clear green eyes stare straight at King. “He’s a warm blood, sir, from Holland. We just bought him.”

The Colonel growls at Billy. “Listen son, I don’t care if he’s from friggin’ Japan! For God’s sake you’re only a couple of years older than my daughter.”

We all stand there watching, while his face turns bright red with rage. There’s no way in hell he’s going to let me have this horse now. That would be too perfect. Instead, he shocks the pants off of me!

“Fine, but if you break your neck, don’t blame me.”

First thing the next morning I race over to the O’Rileys. By the time I reach the stables, I’m out of breath. Billy’s busy brushing down his horse, Stargazer. I walk over to King and stroke his mane. Then I pull a sugar cube out of my pocket. “Hey, boy.”

Billy looks up. “That’s funny, he doesn’t usually take to people so quickly. So let me guess, you want to take a ride?”

God, I’ve been riding since I was six! Okay, I admit it— Billy’s a hottie. I’ve had a crush on him forever. But it makes me crazy the way he still treats me like a little kid. He leans closer and places his hands firmly on his hips.

“Bebe, if I’m going to train you, there are rules for riders. The first one’s commitment. Without it, none of the other rules exist. If I agree to train you, you’ve got to give me 100 percent.”

I stare right back at him, giving him my best killer smile. “I’m all yours!”

For the next few weeks, he insists I do nothing but flat work. He hardly lets me ride across the yard without making sure I am doing it properly. Unlike the Colonel, Billy brings out the best in me and plays down the worst. Whatever I lack, he teaches me with infinite slowness; guiding King and I so we both gain confidence.

“That’s right. Keep your back straight, hold your head up, shoulders back.”

I learn from Billy that difficult horses become easy once you know how to handle them. With Billy’s training, I’m right on course. The Colonel’s threats don’t scare me. Instead, they fuel me, making me even more determined to succeed.

A few days later, I get to the stables early for some quiet time with King. Billy sneaks up behind me. I can feel his breath against my neck.

When I turn around, he has an amused look on his face. “So, do you finally want to take a ride? Isn’t that what you’ve been dying to do—jump every fence this side of Connecticut?”

I have this wild urge to hug him. Instead, I saddle up King. “C’mon, boy.”

King and I take off.

“Tell me what you’ve learned when you get back!” Billy shouts.

Here’s more about Bitten by a Hellcat, including an excerpt from this paranormal romance book.

Bitten by a Hellcat

The sole remaining member of the most famous shifter hunter family in history, Owen Nightingale is a mercenary and a man with a secret held in his closely guarded heart, but when a beautiful rare shifter catches his eye and offers him a job, he has the feeling he’ll be the one paying for helping her—with his heart.

Cait is in a spot of trouble with a capital T. A male hellcat has set his sights on claiming her and she’s one kitty who doesn’t want a collar. When she meets a dark, alluring and mysterious hunter, she sees a chance to rid herself of the male, but the price Owen sets and the fierce passion that burns white-hot between them lures her dangerously under his seductive spell.

Can Owen discover the true intent of the male hellcat and stop Cait from falling into his hands? And can Cait retain control as the heat of desire burns between her and Owen, or will a reckless moment seal both of their fates forever?

Excerpt

 

 

Would he take her job?

Owen looked back towards the person she had surreptitiously pointed out, a huge dark-haired man loitering in one of the many corners of the crowded club but not completely swathed in shadows.

His blood began a slow boil at the thought that the man had ambushed Cait just two hours ago, making her have to fight to escape and injuring her in the process. The shifter was exactly the sort of mark he had gone after countless times—a male who thought that females could be subjugated and were put on this planet for their pleasure, created to be at their beck and call.

Little more than a slave.

He narrowed his eyes on the male as the immense shifter looked at him, holding his steady gaze and showing him that he might have Cait running, but he wouldn’t get the same reaction out of him.

Owen had put down plenty of his kind.

This male would be just another misogynistic bastard to add to his tally.

He dragged his gaze back to Cait where she sat opposite him, all of her confidence gone, leaving behind a woman who looked smaller and vulnerable to him.

In need of his protection.

He had only just met her, but he didn’t like seeing her this way, the light disappeared from her eyes and all of the brightness gone from her face as she waited to hear what he would say.

“I’ll take it.” Owen offered his hand and she slipped hers into it, her palm soft against his and sending a warm thrill chasing up his arm.

He shook her hand and then released her, leaned down and swiped his black satchel from the floor. Cait’s blue eyes followed his every move and widened slightly when he removed his tablet device from his bag and flipped the cover open. He set his bag down on his lap, and the tablet on top of it, and tapped the icon that would start up the database he had created.

The basic program filled the bright screen and he tapped on the search function and selected cat shifters from the list of species. There were so many cat shifter species that he had given them their own category separate from other shifters.

While it loaded all of the shifters he had documented, Owen flagged Sherry down. If he was going to deal with jumping straight into another job, one that might be beyond his skill level, he was going to need another drink.

Sherry bounced along the length of the bar to him, her blonde ponytail swaying with each step.

“Hellfire?” she said with a smile and he grimaced and shook his head.

“Something a little less liable to kill me this time. Two vodkas, on ice. Make it the good stuff.”

Sherry nodded and left to make his drinks. The screen on his tablet changed, snagging his attention. He swiped up the screen, scrolling through all the cat shifters he had documented, pausing only long enough to pay Sherry when she returned. She set the drinks down, took his money, and disappeared along the bar.

Owen pushed one of the glasses across to Cait. Her eyes were glued to his tablet, the screen lighting her face as she leaned across, closer to him, her head at an angle.

“These are all shifters you’ve met?” She ran her gaze over the pictures he had managed to snap of the shifters in secret from a safe distance and hooked her long dark hair behind her ears, pulling it away from her face. “It says two thousand three hundred and twelve results.”

He nodded. “That’s how many cat shifters I’ve come across. Not all of them are alive now.”

She leaned away from him, a frown marring her brow. “You think he’s in there?”

Owen shrugged. “He sounds like the type who might have a rep. I might have come across him before. There’s something familiar about him.”

He swigged his vodka and altered the parameters of the search to male and height in the six-foot-three to six-foot-six range.

The results came back quicker this time, down to only eight hundred and twenty two.

Cait looked impressed and scanned the page as he scrolled. He was almost at the bottom of the list when she jammed her finger against an entry.

“That’s him.” Her touch brought the record up and she snatched her hand back and blinked at the screen.

Owen had the impression that she didn’t get out of Hell much. “Never seen a tablet before?”

“I have,” she said, a hint of indignation in her tone. “I just haven’t touched one. I wasn’t expecting it to do that.”

He smiled as she peered closer to the device, her gaze flitting around the screen.

“You’re certain this Marius fellow is him?” Owen waited for her to nod before going back to work.

“Marius,” she murmured, still staring at the photograph on the screen. “I think I remember someone shouting that at him once.”

He double-tapped the part of the entry where it had the male down as a panther shifter and corrected it. The notes on the sources of information mentioned that eyewitnesses in a Nepal village high in the mountains in snow leopard territory had described him as a black cat. Owen had presumed he was a black panther. He probably hadn’t even considered the male could be a hellcat.

“I don’t have much on him.” But what he did have was enough to ring some warning bells in his head.

The male followed similar patterns to other fae he had tracked, travelling from one prime location for rare species to another. Nepal. Brazil. Northern India. Siberia. All places with rare cat shifters.

Owen studied Cait as she stared at the tablet.

He had a feeling she might be in serious danger but he didn’t want to spook her by telling her that the male after her probably dealt in the black market. They were both hellcats. There was an equal chance that Cait was right and Marius wanted her as a mate.

Until he had investigated the male further and had more information on him, Owen would keep his suspicions to himself.

He closed the cover of his tablet device and put it back in his bag.

“I don’t go into things blind. I need more information. I think we should go somewhere quieter to discuss the job and so you can fill me in on everything you know… maybe away from your admirer.” Owen took his drink and smiled at her, raising the glass at the same time, hoping the male was still watching them.

If luck was with him, Marius wouldn’t know who he was and would think he was just another mortal in the bar flirting with Cait. A harmless male looking for a good time.

He instantly hardened in his black jeans, his body issuing a painful reminder that it wasn’t wholly a lie. He was looking for a good time with Cait. Her flirting had revved him up, filling his head with thoughts of finding a dark corner and making out with her.

Okay, making out was a little too innocent sounding for what he had in mind, but it had been a while since he had been as attracted to someone as he was to her. Heck, he wasn’t sure he had ever been this attracted to anyone. He had always kept his dalliances short and sweet, a periodic scratching of a biological itch, but something about Cait had him firing on all cylinders and thinking in terms longer than a single hot and heavy moment.

He was thinking in terms longer than multiple hot and heavy moments. Nights were involved. Many of them. As many as she would give him.

More than they might have together when working on her job.

He emptied his glass to kill that thought with the alcohol and set it back down on the bar.

“Where do you want to go?” She sipped her drink, a genuine smile playing on her lips and the fire back in her eyes. It sent a bolt of hot lust through him again and he grimaced and shifted on his seat, trying to get more comfortable as his jeans pinched his groin.

“My place.” It came out a little harder and more demanding, and definitely more hungry than he had intended.

REVIEW: He’s So Fine by Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor #11)

He’s So Fine

(Lucky Harbor #11)

by Jill Shalvis

4 HEARTS
4 Hearts
From Goodreads

For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It’s the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she’s rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she’s ever laid hands on.

Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to “save” him. In fact, he’d like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He’s just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole’s heart, or will it be the end of Olivia’s days in little Lucky Harbor?

My Review Final

He’s So Fine is the 11th book of the Lucky Harbor series by the infamous Jill Shalvis. Ack! Only one book to go of my beloved series. I can’t take it! I am loving this last little trio here at the end of this awesome series. As with all of the books in this series I swear they just keep getting better and better. This book is no exception. I loved it! With He’s So Fine we get to know yet one more member of the Lucky Harbor Charter company. I am in love with alll 3 of these guys. Yes, I’m greedy. I know! But, Cole just may be my favorite!

Cole Donovan is funny, sexy, smart and can fix just about everything. His dream of owning his own business with his two best friends is doing better than they could have hoped for and he’s back home, so he can be there for his family when they are needed. I love how he good-naturedly refers to his sisters as the coven. Made me laugh every time. There is one glitch in his settled, perfect life he suffers from PTSD, but does his best to hide it from his friends and family. No one would blame him. He was caught up in a horrible oil rig fire that took one of his best friend’s life. The strangest things can trigger it which is exactly what happened the night he met Olivia. A spark while working on the electrical system of the boat triggered the PTSD and sent him right into the icy water of Lucky Harbor. Olivia thought she was saving him from drowning, but she actually saved him from a whole lot more.

Olivia Bentley is a child-star in hiding. Growing up can ruin a career for a child actor. Without the support of a good parent and manager failure of epic proportions can happen which is exactly what happened with Olivia. And of course, in the age of social media, paparazzi and tabloids her meltdown was documented for all to see. Olivia finally came to her senses and decided the only way to overcome her past and rise above it all was to give up the life of an actress altogether. Lucky Harbor was a God-send. Moving there and opening her very own vintage shop. She loves being a part of the community and has even made a few close friends, but she has to be very careful. Olivia has no intentions of revealing her past and being judged for her past mistakes, therefore she guards her secrets with all she has. Who would have thought when she dove into the harbor to “save” Cole she put into motion the very events that would shake the foundation of her house of secrets?

This couple made me laugh out loud so many times. Cole’s sense of humor meshed so well with Olivia’s personality. The more she tried to keep her distance the more they seemed to bond. The conversations they had were fantastic and so entertaining. And of course we have our wonderful secondary characters that always make the Lucky Harbor books that much more wonderful. Lucille just gets bolder and bolder with her matchmaking tricks. I do love that woman.

Thank you to NetGalley.com for the loan of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Exclusive Excerpt:

August 13th

Houston Cavanaugh.

The first boy I ever loved. And boy, did I love him a long time. I loved him until he was a man. I loved him

until he loved me back. At least, I thought he loved me.

His eyes narrow and he appears confused for a

moment. “Jamie?”

My heart drops to my feet.

He doesn’t even remember me.

“No,” I say with far too much emotion.

“Oh, my God. I’m sorry. I… I know you.”

I clutch my chest, unable to breathe. Then his eyes widen with what can only be described as pure terror.

“Rory? Aurora?”

I let out a sharp puff of air. “Yeah.”

His lips are still moving. I want to hear what he’s saying, but my thoughts are pounding in time with my heart. Images flash in my mind: our bodies tangled in his sheets; the breakfast bar littered with sticky shot glasses and empty beer bottles; my empty dorm.

“Rory?”

I blink a few times to focus on his face and he looks at the floor, as if the weight of our history is pulling his head down.

“I’m sorry. Maybe I should come back later.”

“What? No!”

He looks up, startled by my outburst.

“I mean, you came to talk about the contract, so… let’s talk. I’m…” I nod toward the chair for him to sit down, then I close the office door behind him. “I’m sorry for spacing out. I was just a little surprised to see you.” I take a seat in Jamie’s chair and yelp as it begins to tip backward. “Shit!”

Houston laughs as I scoot forward and lean my elbows on the desk, hoping he doesn’t notice how the sound of his laughter makes the hairs on my arms stand up.

“Sorry. Obviously, I don’t sit on this side of the desk very often, but Jamie didn’t want to reschedule this appointment. She should be here shortly.”

“You don’t need to apologize.” The left corner of his mouth pulls up in his signature half smile and I grit my teeth against the surge of emotions welling up inside me. “I’m actually kind of glad we ran into each other.”

“Really? You hardly remembered me a minute ago.”

He chuckles again. “Yeah, sorry about that. I was just surprised.”

I can’t argue with this when I just used the same excuse. But it’s no more true coming from his lips than it is from mine. We’re not surprised to see each other. We’re terrified.

The Way We Fall Synopsis:

aFrom New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a twisted and passionate love story that pushes the boundaries of loyalty.

Maybe we shouldn’t have fallen so fast and so willingly.

Maybe we shouldn’t have moved in together before we went on our first date. Maybe we should have given our wounds time to heal before we tore each other to shreds.

Maybe we should have never been together.

Houston has kept a devastating secret from Rory since the day he took her into his home. But the tragic circumstances that brought them together left wounds too deep to heal.

Five years after the breakup, Houston and Rory are thrust together by forces beyond their control. And all the resentments and passion return with more intensity than ever.

Once again, Houston is left with a choice between the truth and the only girl he’s ever loved.

The Way We Fall is the first book in The Story of Us series, which follows the tumultuous love story of Rory and Houston. The sequel, The Way We Break, will be released Spring 2015.

RELEASE WEEK BLITZ/EXCERPT: The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

The Return Release Week Blitz banner

We have been dying to bring you the Release Blitz for Jennifer L. Armentrout’s THE RETURN! THE RETURN is a New Adult Paranormal Romance and is a part of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Titan Series. Seth is looking to be just as dangerously delicious as we all hoped!!

 

The Return - Cover

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iBooks | Booksamillion

THE RETURN Excerpt:

“Is it so hard to say her name?” Apollo asked. “I think a few minutes ago was the first time you’ve said her name since after you two fought Ares.”
My jaw ached from how hard I was grinding my molars.
“Whatever,” Apollo said, his attention returning to the godsforsaken ceiling fan chain. “Don’t talk about it. Be the best issues-boy you can be.”
I took a deep breath. It didn’t help. “I don’t have issues.”
He tipped his head back and roared with laughter. Paintings of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains rattled. “You have more baggage than United Airlines. Cross that out. You have more issues than Medusa, and that woman makes the inside of a cat lady’s thoughts seem like a calming place.”
“I hate you.”
“You wound me straight to the heart, bud.”
My patience was just about the same as that of Cerberus after someone tried to take a squeaky toy away from him. “What about the girl, Apollo?”
He dropped down into the leather chair, his large form nearly swallowing it. “It’s a long story.”
“Go figure.”
That comment went largely ignored. “It all started with your birth, so there’s something else you can add to your mountain of suck.”
I wondered if there was an anti-god repellent and where I could find it.
“We knew the moment you were born that there would be the possibility of a God Killer, since Alexandria was on schedule to make an appearance a few years later. We didn’t know who among us was responsible for your birth, but we knew they’d want to use you for their own gain.”
“This walk down history lane is boring me.” I crossed my arms.
Unaffected, he eased himself closer to the bed, kicked his booted feet up on it, and stretched out leather-clad legs. “The risk of you two joining forced us to come up with a contingency plan in case the proverbial poo hit the fan.”
My brows knitted. There was something wrong with hearing Apollo use the word “poo” in a sentence.

THE RETURN Synopsis:

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.
