In the midst of her pain, her sulking, and her heart break she just might find relief with her ex-brother-in-law. But will it be a forever kind of love or a lead me into disaster epic fail?

My Review

Ohhhhh Mia Ford has done it again.  I think this might be my fav so far.  It is such a sweet and amazing read.

In this book Jordan is divorcing his wife Tiffany for selfish reasons.  Jason has had a secret crush on her for years.  When Jason runs into Tiffany at a night club, they hit it off.  Jason realizes that he wants to pursue her.

Tiffany thought she had it all, until a diagnosis is given that tears her marriage apart.  Now she is alone and hurting.  When her bestie or es her out for a night out she reluctantly goes.  While out she runs in to Jason, her ex husbands brother.  They sit all night connecting and reminiscing.  She realizes that she likes Jason.

As the two start to build a relationship, things get complicated.  Will their relationship be enough?  Will they brave the wrath of Jordan?

This story was so sweet.  I loved the characters.  Tiffany is an amazing, intelligent caring woman.  Jason is so caring and protective towards Tiffany and his brother Jordan is kind of a jerk.  The sex scenes are to die for.  Especially the daring places they seem to find for their escapades.  *wink wink*

This book is an amazing story.  It tells the story of love, then devistation with betrayal.  It also tells of finding love in the most unexpected way, adding in a miracle to make it complete.   The story flows so smoothly.

I love Mia Ford’s writing style.  She takes a wonderful story about falling in love and puts in the best steamy sex scenes.  Those scenes will make your toes curl.  Her plots in her stories are believable, drawing you in, allowing you to become invested in the characters and the outcome of their story.  If you love a good romance that curls your toes leaving you wanting more, then this is the book for you.

MY REVIEW

OMG!  I am hooked.  When is the next book coming out!?!  I mean, seriously it ended just when all the really good stuff starts.  And with a cliff hanger no doubt.  Aggghhh!!!

In this first book of the series, Tanya and her four best friends come across a strange man one Halloween night.  The next day they wake to a new world as night walkers.  Better known as vampires.  Lazarith the mysterious man is the reason for their new life.  He has told them they are the chosen and they are special.  The girls are the chosen ones who will save the race from Lazarith’s evil son Damion.  Damion is determined to take over the throne and to that he has to kill the girls before they come into their powers.

The book is a definite page turner and had me on the edge of my seat at some points. It was an action packed adventure full of thrills.   I loved the different approach to the vampire story line.  Especially the part when they tell the story of the first vampire being created.   The characters are very entertaining and likeable.  The story did have some dead spots in it, but the action makes up for it.  I mean it. These girls kick butt with all the supernatural powers that they are developing.

I read some of the reviews and not everyone shares my sentiments.  I think you have to like young adult vampire type books to really appreciate the story the author is trying to tell.  I felt like this book could compare to the House of Night Series or Vampire Academy.   It has action, adventure, danger and young love. If you like these types of books then you will not regret reading this one.

The Billionaire’s Ploy | Book Blitz

The Billionaire’s Ploy
Allie Burton
(Castle Ridge, #5)
Publication date: October 25th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

All’s fair in love and business.

Billionaire Jackson Croft refuses to let anything interfere with his merger and marriage plans. His merger. His brother’s marriage. When Emory Barrington returns to Castle Ridge and catches his younger brother’s attention, Jackson needs to take drastic steps to stop the flirtation. Even if it means using himself as bait.

As a child Emory was infatuated with the younger Croft brother, so when he invites her to a party she can’t resist. Until Jackson interrupts their dance, tries to bribe her, and then steals a kiss. A kiss that vibrates to her soul.

To make up for the attempted bribe, Jackson offers her a job decorating his Denver penthouse. She’s just starting her interior design firm and can’t turn the business away even if it means working closely with the billionaire. The project turnaround is fast and the attraction between Emory and Jackson grows faster. She believes she sees the real man beneath the façade, but when she learns of his double-dealing her heart can’t take the betrayal.

In this take on the Sabrina story, can deception lead to love?

EXCERPT:

“The party is tonight. You should come.”

Emory’s spirits flew. All her teenage fantasies about attending one of the Croft events burst into an explosion of light. Excitement shot through her entire body. Ryder Croft invited me, Emory Reese Barrington, to a Croft party.

Jeez, quit acting like a child. She shouldn’t be impressed. She’d been to lots of fancy parties in Spain. She was a special guest at a Vizconde’s party. Her thoughts soured. One of many of his special guests.

“You’re inviting me to your sister’s wedding reception? Isn’t it too late to RSVP?” Except he wasn’t inviting Emory, he didn’t know who he spoke to.

“There will be hundreds. One more person won’t be noticed.” He took her hand and rubbed his thumb against her skin. “We could dance.”

This should be where she swooned. Clutching the coat tighter between her hands, she imagined holding Ryder in her arms while they danced, of him walking her through their elaborate gardens as he’d done with other girls, of him kissing her.

Ryder would be disappointed when he found out her name. For now, for this one moment in time, she could feel special. “I’d love to.”

“Great.” An uneasiness slid into his gaze, and she wondered if he was picturing the woman he’d planned to propose to. He opened the trunk, taking out her suitcase.

“Hello, Emory.” An even deeper, masculine voice rumbled.

Her heart leapt to her throat, blocking the passage of air. She pivoted around at the greeting. Her fantasy to pretend for a little while longer died by two words from the frightening, older brother. She’d hoped Ryder wouldn’t learn who she was until tonight at the party. When she was dressed up and looking her best.

It was too late now. “Hello, Jackson.”

Wearing a suit and tie on a Saturday afternoon, he strolled from his boring sedan parked ahead of them. His brown hair had been slicked back from his forehead in perfect grooming. A couple of new lines had formed on his forehead. Only a year older than Ryder, he acted at least five years older. Because he never had fun, his only interest being the family business.

“Emory?” Ryder raised his brown eyebrows into high arches. He hadn’t guessed who she was after spending thirty minutes in her company.

Her flying spirits took a dive and crashed to the ground. Had she been so unnoticeable as a kid? Jackson had recognized her immediately.

He signed off on a clipboard a worker gave him, barely glancing at her. “How was Barcelona?”

She angled her chin, surprised he remembered where she’d gone, and that she’d been gone at all. Their paths didn’t cross frequently in the past, on purpose. She’d avoided him and his overbearing attitude. “Good.”

The work experience had been great. The personal life, not so much. She wasn’t going to go into detail. Not with Jackson.

“Emory?” Ryder’s jaw dropped.

“Your mother is going to be glad you’re home.” Jackson considered her and his brother. His expression went quizzical. “Good to see you,” he said, before heading up the stairs and through the front door.

“Emory?” Ryder shook his head trying to get her name straight.

Her shoulders dropped farther every time he said her name. Her fantasy had ended sooner than expected. “I suppose your invitation to the party has been withdrawn, now you know who I am.”

“No.” He shook his head again. “No. Of course not.”

She raised her brows. “Are you sure? Do you want to dance with the housekeeper’s daughter?”

He waved a hand in front of his face, and his expression cleared. He assessed her shape. “This is the twenty-first century.”

She squirmed with misgiving. Not really an answer to her question.
