Release Day!!!! |Billionaire Retreat

Happy Release Day to Summer Cooper!!!  Check out my review on her new book Billionaire Retreat……..

Billionaire Retreat

Summer Cooper

“Don’t mind me. I don’t know how to flirt. I’m pretty terrible at anything that comes before foreplay.” I opened my mouth and then closed it, not sure what to say. I blurted, “Um…I have no plans to sleep with you.” He arched an eyebrow, “Maybe not now, but eventually.” His words conjured up images that made me blush. “Wow, you’re arrogant,” I managed to say. Griffin shrugged and my fingers itched to touch his broad, sexy shoulders. “Some call it arrogance. I call it honesty.” Nina Charles is an actress, struggling to find herself and her way in sunny L.A. After nonstop bad luck, she’s relieved when she finally lands a gig as an entertainment specialist for an exclusive, private resort. She promptly realizes that the resort caters to rich men looking for a wild time. And that her role as an entertainment specialist, there to meet the “needs” of the guests, isn’t exactly the role of a lifetime. But she’s intrigued when she’s paired with reclusive billionaire Griffin Wallace. A tech guru with a hard body, sharp wit, and beautiful eyes, Nina quickly finds herself falling for him. But when their fantasy world ends abruptly, can Nina and Griffin figure out a way to be with each other or will misunderstandings and secrets prevent them from building a future together?

My Review

OMG!  This book was amazing!!!  I could not put it down.  I think this may be one of Summer Cooper’s best books that I have read yet.  I am a new fan of hers and I have to say she just keeps impressing me with each book I read.

In this book Nina leaves behind her Georgia roots and is in LA living with her gay cousin Kenny, trying to become an actress/model.  Kenny sets her up to do a swimsuit audition and talks her into wearing a really hot swimsuit.  As Nina waits in line forever for the interview, she finds herself embarrassed, because she waited in the wrong line and was half-naked for a resort job interview instead.  With all the confusion she leaves and almost gets hit by a car.  Her rescuer is Griffin Wallace, and IT billionaire.  He is the most beautiful man she has ever seen.  She pulls herself together, thanks him for rescuing her and bids him farewell never to see again.

Nina gets a phone call from the resort the next day offering her a job as a “camp counselor” to the extremely wealthy for a week.  Seeing as she has no job and needs rent money she accepts the position.  Upon arrival to the resort she discovers that she is really playing a glorified entertainer to an eccentric billionaire, basically she is being paid to keep company.  When she meets her billionaire for the weekend, her jaw drops.  Her company to keep for the weekend is Griffin, her knight in shining armor.

Girffin is at his cousin Richard’s retreat to celebrate his brother Jackson’s upcoming marriage.  They are there for a last hoorah bachelor party weekend.  Griffin does not like being there or his brother’s friends, but that all changes the moment his eyes land his assigned date.  It is the sexy brunette that his driver almost hit and he is determined to make her his.

As sparks fly and Nina’s attraction grows, she trys to not spend any alone time with him.  But then her plan fails and they fall into bed and she falls in love.  The next morning she wakes to an empty bed and Jackson knocking on the door to tell her he has left.  Hurt and betrayed she storms away.  Will they ever knock down the huge wall of lies and deceit that is there to keep them apart?

Griffin and Nina have such a strong mesmerizing chemistry between them.  I was hooked on them from the moment they met, butterflies in my tummy and all.  The story of them is tragic and heartbreaking, but you can’t help but hold out hope for them.  The characters in the book are highly entertaining and you can’t help but love most of them.  I highly recommend this book.  You will not regret it.

I give this book 5 Hearts of Love  Image result for 5 star review

Hiking In SC

Went hiking today with my hubby in  Ceasars Head State Park.  We hiked 4 miles. It was very high up in the mountain.  We hiked to get a view of Raven Cliff Falls.  We thought we were going to get to see a suspended cable bridge, but we did not take that path.  Maybe next time. Here’s some pictures from our hike.  😊 Enjoy 

Review|Caramels With A Side Of Murder

Caramels with a Side of Murder (Daley Buzz Mystery #2)Caramels with a Side of Murder (Daley Buzz Mysteries #2)

by Meredith Potts (Goodreads Author)
 4.43  ·   Rating Details ·  14 Ratings  ·  10 Reviews
Sabrina’s friend, Shannon, convinces Sabrina to visit a psychic with her. They are both given startling predictions but only partial ones. When Sabrina goes back to ask for more the next day, she finds Miss Terri dead.

My Review

Well Sabrina is at it again.  Sabrina goes with her friend Shannon to visit a psychic, Terri.  Leaving the psychic with more questions than answers, Sabrina decides to pay her another visit to find those answers.  Upon Sabrina’s arrival she finds a woman running away and the dead body of Terri.  Instead of telling Sabrina to stay out of the investigation, David lets her tag along.  Will Sabrina and David solve the murder before the murderer can strike again?  Will Sabrina sister’s disappearance be solved?  What are those lights in the mansion?

This book is the second in the series for the Daley Buzz.  It is a cute and cozy read.  Meredith Potts has a great group of characters in this series.  I do feel that not much progress has been made in the mysteries of the mansion, the secret meetings and her sister’s disappearance.  It is a little disappointing, but I am enjoying the series.  There is a lot of who done it, keeping you guessing till the end. So if you like caramels, which reading this book will make you crave them, then this is the book for you.

I give this book 4 Stars  small star 2 small star 2 small star 2 small star 2

My Review

This is the third installment of this series.  These are such cozy little reads, with cute and funny characters.  In this installment Sabrina and her boyfriend David are out on a date night and hear fighting in the kitchen between the owners.  The next day Clarissa is found dead.  With a growing list of suspects, solving it may be one of their hardest cases yet.   Sabrina is no closer to finding her sister or figuring out what the secret meetings are all about.  But at least the lights in the Mansion are solved as well as the murder.  Continue on to find out more with the next installment Lemon Bars with a Side of Murder.

Message from ClareMarie

“I love to write books and create song lyrics. I enjoy reading. I’m inspired by music, oh and I’m a Libra too.”

ClareMarie’s publication of The Shadows Trilogy has just begun. This is expected to be an anticipated work as it brings in a new voice to the world of fantasy literature. The books are being presented by an exciting new figure that will entertain all sorts of people who are interested in surprising stories of all kinds.

ClareMarie released her debut novel on November 10, 2016. Her second book will soon follow. Each book is more than four hundred pages of surprising and intense romantic interludes.

ClareMarie’s first novel, Into The Shadows, is a series that takes place far off in the future, specifically in the year 3000. The story is about a group of people known as Paranormals who live among other humans. These are people who are immortal and have many amazing superhuman powers. While these people want to live their lives in peace, a government has abducted them in the hopes of studying these people and reviewing more about their powers and what makes them unique.

The story focuses on Ava James, a woman who was raised to believe all her life that she is human. But soon she discovers that she is not a human but rather a Paranormal. This leads her into a tailspin as she has to find a way to survive amid the pressures that are being imposed onto her.

ClareMarie has expressed a very strong interest in writing over the years and that interest clearly shows in her work on this book. She is a native of England who currently resides in Galway, Ireland and has been writing since she was around fourteen years of age. She started out as a songwriter and eventually built more of a passion for writing.

The Shadows Trilogy is her first endeavor into the world of literature. She is excited to share her amazing voice with the world.

ClareMarie does not show any real signs of slowing down either. She will be releasing another series of books, The Rockstar Alliance Series, in the near future. Until then, people will have The Shadows Trilogy to check out when looking for entertaining paranormal and romantic stories that take them to different worlds.

ClareMarie’s books can be found at most retailers and all information can be found at her website.
