My Review

DEA Agent Alex is forced into a nice long vacation due to getting shot. It was like he has a death wish. So his boss made him take vacation. So Alex takes his daughter and decides to go back to his hometown Kent and stay with his father.

But once back in Kent he starts to notice that Kent has changed a lot and not all the changes are good. When an old high school acquaintance shows up looking for his dad, he senses trouble. The DEA in him tells him that to look into things.

Jenni is dating the wrong guy. Garth. Her father disapproves. But when Alex comes back to town, she starts rethinking her relationship. When Alex gets in a fight with the wrong guy, things take a turn for the worst. Can Alex and Jenni make it out alive? Or will Garth kill them all?

This book was pretty good. It flowed smoothly up until the end. Then it seemed to rush through the rest. I felt that the ending could have had a lot more action and depth to it. But overall it was a great book. The characters were interesting and entertaining. The plot of the story was built up nicely but did rush to the finish line.

I enjoyed the story and it’s characters. I loved the concept of the storyline. I am sure you will too. So if you are looking for a hot little number for a quick read then this book is for you.

Book Review \ Christmas on the Last Frontier

(Last Frontier Lodge #1)

byJ.H. Croix(Goodreads Author)
4.06聽路聽Rating details聽路聽825聽Ratings聽聽路聽103聽Reviews

From Bestselling author, J.H. Croix, a new contemporary romance series! A sexy Christmas romance set against the wilderness and beauty of small-town Alaska. Gage Hamilton is a smoldering Navy SEAL and a man on a mission. He鈥檚 returning to Diamond Creek, Alaska to resurrect his dream of reopening Last Frontier Lodge. Marley Adams moves back home hoping to find a sense of security and safety after it was stolen from her.

Gage has spent many years successfully avoiding emotional entanglements. He is looking for nothing more than peace and sanctuary at his family鈥檚 old ski lodge. His new neighbor, Marley, was definitely not part of his plans. Marley is a brainy computer whiz and way too sexy for Gage鈥檚 own good. A man who prides himself on always being in control, Gage finds that he has little when it comes to Marley.

Marley only wants to get her feet back under her after her world was turned upside down in Seattle. She鈥檚 been focused on little else beyond her work and is seriously out of practice with anything resembling romance鈥ncluding the scorching hot attraction that sizzles anytime Gage crosses her path.

Gage and Marley are powerless against the magnetic pull between them. Steamy and snowy nights weave a spell around them. While Marley thought she escaped whoever set out to hurt her in Seattle, she finds the threat of danger has followed her to Diamond Creek. Gage must face the depth of his feelings for Marley when he realizes he will do anything to protect her. Can Marley and Gage discover love in time for Christmas? The magic of a white Christmas is right around the corner.

*All novels in this series are full-length standalone novels with an HEA.

My Review

Oh my!聽 This was such a sweet romantic tale of two tortured souls coming together as one.

In this book Marley has moved home to Diamond Back.聽 She is scared and trying to put her life back together after a horrible incident that had her lose her job and be afraid to stay in Seattle.聽 She is rebuilding her life one piece at a time.

Gage has moved back to Diamond Back after many years away.聽 His grandmother鈥檚 death has brought him back to reopen the Lodge his grandparents ran for so many years.聽 As part owner he jumped on the opportunity to leave his Navy Seal job and start a new.聽 Maybe he can heal from the loss of his best friend during a mission.

Marley is out hiking the trails along the lodge when she runs into Gage.聽 He is handsome and a sexy god.聽 She is curious as to who he is.聽 When he explains that his grandmother had passed and left the lodge to him and his siblings and that he plans to reopen, she is thrilled.聽 As she volunteers to help with the website to get the lodge the attention it needs for a kick start Gage jumps on it.

As time goes on the pair spend lots of time together.聽聽 Healing each other without realizing it.聽 Gage is very protective of Marley and when danger knocks on her door he loses it.

This was a wonderful Christmas read.聽 It has sweet romance, danger and strength.聽 It is a steady paced book with a happy ending.聽 I enjoyed watching the relationship between Gage and Marley develop.聽 Watching them grow and heal on their journey was beautiful.

If you are looking for a sweet romance with a bit of mystery then this is the book for you.聽 On to the next book.聽 Can’t wait to read about his brother Garrett Mr. Big Shot Lawyer.

Book Excerpt

鈥淲hatever it is you want, I can help you get it. You don鈥檛 have to do this.鈥
鈥淵ou can鈥檛,鈥 he answered, and he knew it was true. The lack of action from the asshole when she鈥檇 begged on the phone had made it clear. As long as he stopped, Mercier would continue to drag this out 鈥 which left only one option, he鈥檇 have to hurt the girl, torture her until he gave in for real. No more promises, no more time, no more deadlines.
Action or destruction.
鈥淚 can. Ju-just give me the chance.鈥 Her hands tightened into fists as he moved closer, tugging at the chains that he already knew wouldn鈥檛 give her any slack.
鈥淣o more chances for you or Daddy. Either he signs, or we keep going until you鈥檙e done.鈥
鈥淒one?鈥 she whispered, and the tears pooling in her eyes caught the lights making them shine. So fucking beautiful. Such a fucking waste.
鈥淭hat鈥檚 right.鈥
鈥淥h God!鈥 The girl fought hard, ripping at the cuffs, making her breasts bounce, nipples hardened by the cool air in the room, and he watched for a minute as a few tears leaked out into her hair.
鈥淒on鈥檛 worry, I don鈥檛 want you to talk to him this time.鈥 Lifting the ball gag in his hands, he smiled underneath the mask when she shook her head, panic making her flail harder at the chains while his cock stiffened against his leg.
Please! Just let me talk to him again, please, tell me what you want him to sell and I鈥檒l convince him! I swear! I鈥檒l do it!鈥 As she begged, he knelt down beside her, taking a moment to trace one finger over the soft skin of her arm. She felt so pure, so good, and how someone like her had come from someone so evil he couldn鈥檛 figure out 鈥 but none of that mattered. All he needed was her suffering.
鈥淥pen up.鈥 He held the gag in front of her face, offering her the easy way, but she clenched her teeth tight just like he鈥檇 expected. Somehow the girl was simultaneously terrified of him, and still defiant. Where was her sense of self-preservation? Why wasn鈥檛 she submitting to him fully in an attempt to make him lenient?
Not like it would work.
Wrapping his hand under her chin, he dug his fingers into the muscles of her jaw, slowly forcing her mouth wide as she whimpered. As soon as there was enough space, he forced the ball gag between her teeth, and then pressed his hand down to keep it there. 鈥淭sk, tsk. I wasn鈥檛 asking, princess, and when you disobey you just make me angry.鈥
A sharp, incomprehensible shout escaped her lips, so he locked the gag a notch too tight, leaving her groaning as her jaw strained.
鈥淵ou should hope he loves you as much as you think he does.鈥

My Review

Sarah Williams is a famous daytime talk show host. She has sworn off men. All because she has been hurt by her ex who she caught kissing her co-host. Not to mention the bad luck in her past relationships. But one day all of that is interrupted by Mason Baker. Famous playboy and tech tycoon billionaire. She interviews Mason on her tv show about his gadget that helps people find things. During the interview Mason flirts openly. When it is over he leaves his information with her assistant.

Mason can’t believe his luck. Sarah is even hotter in person than on television. But when she doesn’t call after he left his information with her assistant, he can only think of one reason she didn’t. Her assistant is incompetent. That’s got to be it right? I mean who would pass up Mason Baker, sex god!

When Mason goes to extremes to get through to Sarah, she bruises his ego over and over. She ignores him, doesn’t answer the phone. So he takes things into his own hands and goes down to the studio personally. She has no choice but to give in and go out with him. After a hot night of passion, she leaves Mason with no word, then ignores him.

What is going on? Why can’t he get his head straight? Why is he so attached to her? How can he convince her to date him no strings attached?

This was a great story. Very fun and entertaining. I loved Sarah’s character. She is funny, caring and such a smart ass. I love it. Mason is a typical playboy with the biggest ego in the world. NO wait, I am wrong. His ego is so big the world is not big enough to hold it. bahaha!!

If you are looking for a love story full of laughs and heartache or if you just like to see a woman bring a man to his knees,then this is the book for you. It has all that and then some. I recommend this book for those who love a good snarky fun read with hot as sin sex.

Worth the Risk
J.B. Heller
Publication date: January 4th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

It was meant to be a one-time thing. One night they could let go of the restrictive chains their everyday lives bound them in.

When a new client file turns out to belong to the woman Abe slept with three months ago, he does something he has never done before. He goes against company policy, one he created, and places himself on the case as her full-time bodyguard.

It鈥檚 not bad enough her father鈥檚 political aspirations have landed Kalista in hot water, she鈥檚 about to have a twenty-four/seven shadow too. Far from happy about the added protection, she hates the idea of constantly being watched. But then she meets her new bodyguard.

Now that Abe has Kalista so close again he knows he wants to keep her in his life. When the threats against her escalate, he鈥檚 forced to act. But will his new-found attachment to Kalista make him a liability or their greatest asset?
