Synopsis:

Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay. 

Sierra Belmont is lost. After a sudden loss that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day. 

And then Chase comes in to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart. 

Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.

Review:


One Call Away is a beautiful, passionate and intense reading journey that left me with a happy heart. This is my first time reading a book by this author and I really enjoyed her writing style. The entire story captivated me from the very beginning. 

Sierra Belmont is living in a state of numbness. Life around her goes on, but her heart stopped beating the moment she got a life changing phone call. Time has gone by, but her broken heart is still in a million pieces. Until Chase Henson sets foot in Summer Hill. As days go by, Sierra and Chase grow closer together. Sierra's heart is finally healing, but will secrets from Chase's past destroy her heart again?

I loved the chemistry and connection between Sierra and Chase. It was fascinating to see them bond over books and slowly create their own love story. They had many ups and downs on their journey to finding their own HEA, but every single moment that they shared made their relationship grow stronger.

Chase never felt like calling a place home until he found Sierra. She's breath of fresh air in his lonely world. Chase was a fantastic hero and the way he fell for Sierra absolutely melted my heart! My heart broke for Sierra at the beginning of this reading journey. I was cheering for her to find someone who would heal her broken heart. Chase was like a soothing balm on her broken heart. He made her believe in love again.

I'm extremely happy that I got the chance to read my first book by Emily Goodwin. Her characters are fantastic and this reading journey was emotional, passionate and captivating. I look forward to discovering her other tittles. I have some catching up to do!

Rating:


I give, One Call Away, by Emily Goodwin, 4 heart-warming, emotional, passionate, romantic stars!

Excerpt:


Sawyer

My throat tightened and a heaviness grew in my chest like my heart didn’t know whether to beat faster or stop beating altogether. “Did you leave me all this to show me the life you could’ve had, but didn’t? Why!?” I pounded the wheel again and then again, and again and again until my vision was blurry and all I could see was the redness of my own heated rage. “You’re a fucking coward! You fucking COWARD!” I screamed to no one, pounding on the wheel until the skin across my knuckles split and blood dripped between my fingers. Strong hands bit into my biceps, yanking me from the cab. I was spun around by my shoulders and found myself face to face with Finn. “I like it when you swear,” he said, pressing close. 

“Finn, get off me! Get off me! Let me go!” I wailed, struggling to free myself from his grip. Kicking out my legs only to connect with the air as he evaded my every move. A growl tore from his throat. Finn picked me up and walked me to the back of the truck, setting me on the open tailgate. He pushed himself between my legs and hovered over me to keep me from leaping off. 

“Let me go,” I demanded, pushing at his hard chest. “I don’t have time for your broodiness right now.” 

Finn held my wrists together with one hand. “No, of course you don’t. You’re too busy tearing up pictures and screaming at no one.” 

“Let me go,” I repeated. 

“No,” he said between clenched teeth. 

“Just go! Leave me alone. Leave meeeeeee!” I wailed as I pounded against his stone chest. 

“You don’t want to hit me,” he warned, his eyes hardened. 

“Then let me go.” 

“Why?” He stepped in closer, unaffected by my attempt to fight against him. My inner thighs were touching his outer thighs. 

“Because she did!” I screamed, my eyes sprang open to find his cold blue gaze. “She could have run anywhere and taken me with her. Instead she left him but she left me too. She was a coward who couldn’t make the right decision and I love her. I love her…but I hate her. I hate her so much…so…” I was interrupted when Finn’s lips pressed against mine, momentarily rendering me stupid. I pointed my toes toward the sky to avoid my initial instinct which was to wrap my legs around him. It was so consuming that I momentarily forgot to fight him off, but I didn’t need to, he pulled his lips from mine. 

“Stop doing that,” I said. I pushed him off but he stayed between my legs, his hands on my bare back just under the hem of his big t-shirt I was wearing. His gaze hardened. I could see the conflict written in his lined forehead and the deep V between his eyes. I had no doubt the conflict had everything to do with me. 

And kissing me. 

“It’s your fault that I do it,” Finn said, his voice deep and smooth against my chin and then my neck. 

“So that’s your plan? Kiss me every time you want to shut me up?” I asked, still feeling every bit of my anger but also feeling something else. Something that sent tingles between my legs and an ache in my core. “Thank you for saving me. Really. Thank you. I appreciate it,” my voice cracked. “But you can just leave me alone now. And please, STOP kissing me.” My words a whisper. 

“I’m going to kiss you whenever I want to kiss you,” Finn stated as if I didn’t have a say in the matter. 

The early morning sunlight highlighted the beads of sweat trickling from his shoulders down his broad chest and across the valleys of his defined abs. He was standing so close that we were breathing in each other’s air. 

“Whenever you want to kiss me?” I laughed. “I don’t understand you. I don’t understand any of this. You’re always mad at me. Why did you save me? Why do you keep kissing me when you’re always mad at me?” 

“It’s when I’m pissed off at you that I want to kiss you the most,” Finn said, his voice flowing over my skin like a silky blanket. He slid me closer so I could feel the outline of his rigid erection as if he were proving a point. He lowered his lips to mine and consumed my mouth in a greedy kiss that had me shaking with need and spinning with confusion. 

“Do you always kiss everyone you hate?” I asked, yanking my lips from his. 

“Does this feel like hate to you?” he growled pushing his hard length between my legs.


Review:


I was so excited to learn that T.M. Frazier was releasing a duet featuring brand new characters. Her King Series is one of my favorite series to reread and I always feel like I’m going back home when I visit that amazing cast of characters. I have read all of T.M. Frazier’s books and every single time I start a new book, she exceeds all of my expectations. There was no doubt in my mind that the moment I met Sawyer and Finn, they were going to steal my heart. And, they absolutely did! 

What I love about T.M. Frazier’s writing style is that each world that she creates is unique, memorable and all-consuming. The Outskirts was an unputdownable reading escape that made me feel every moment of this story. I can’t even deal with how much I love these two. Their chemistry is crazy intense and I love how deeply they fell for each other. Both of their worlds collide in the most unexpected way. I really don't want to give anything away from their story because each reader needs to feel every single moment of their journey. Finn is living in a state of numbness until Sawyer comes along. She's a comforting presence in his dark world. His past is keeping him prisoner, but having Sawyer by his side is making him want things. 

Sawyer’s transformation was remarkable. I was cheering for her from the moment she left her father and started running towards her freedom. A smile lingered on my lips for each new memory she created. She’s such an amazing heroine and I really connected with her. Finn is a hero that completely left me in a puddle of mush! Sweet baby Jesus! He’s so intoxicating!! I loved how he made Sawyer step out of her comfort zone. You will absolutely love the supporting cast of characters in this book. They have such a great chemistry with Sawyer and Finn. This is a world you definitely want to visit over and over again.

I can't wait to find out what will happen next! If you can't handle cliffhangers, I would wait until the second installment is released. I'm so in love with these characters and I can't wait to reunite with them again. I highly recommend The Outskirts!

Rating:


I give, The Outskirts, by T.M. Frazier, 5 sensational, sexy, scorching, captivating, life should be filled with TING stars!

Synopsis:

Dear Bridget, 

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. 

So, here goes. 

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. 

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. 

I want you. 

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. 

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. 

No questions asked. 

Think about it. 

Or don’t. 

Whatever you choose. 

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

Review:

When I read a book by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland, I have not doubt in my mind that it will always be a reading escape filled with beautiful, passionate and romantic moments. Dear Bridget, I Want You is a book I was looking forward to. When I read Simon's letter to Bridget, in the blurb, I was captivated. I could not wait to read about their love story.

British hottie, Dr. Simon Hogue, is intrigued by his next patient. Their awkward first meeting is one he will never forget. Single mom, Bridget Valentine, can't run quickly enough from the ER. That is one embarrassing moment she wants to forget. Three months pass until she sees Simon again. When she agrees to rent an apartment on her property, she never expected for Simon to show up. As days go by, Bridget and Simon grow closer together. Bridget is torn about her feeling for Simon. Their chemistry is undeniable, but will she give their love a chance?

DBIWY was everything I expect from a book written by these two amazing authors. I felt like I was a character in the story and I was cheering for Bridget and Simon's love. Many things could've kept them apart, but the bond they created was strong and undeniable. The characters in this story are incredible! 

Simon made me swoon so many times that I lost count! He's everything Bridget deserves. I absolutely loved how he got under Bridget's skin and made her feel alive again. Don't even get me started about his relationship with Bridget's son. OMG!! He's such a wonderful role model. Bridget is the kind of heroine I love to cheer for. I loved how she stepped out of her comfort zone when she met Simon. He made her feel things she's never felt before. 

This was a fantastic reading escape! If you have never read a book by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, you are seriously missing out! Their writing style is amazing, their characters unforgettable and their signature twists will always leave you speechless. I highly recommend DBIWY if you're looking for your next captivating, sexy, passionate reading journey.

Rating:

I give, Dear Bridget, I Want You, by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, 4.5 heart-melting, romantic, passionate stars!
