Synopsis:

“In another life, she was my forever.” 

An unexpected tragedy leaves Professor Nathaniel Hunt a widower alone with a newborn baby. 

He hires a nanny. She’s young, but well-qualified, with a simple life, a crazy name obsession, and a boyfriend she met at the grocery store. 

Over time, he discovers she knows things about him—things that happened before she was born—like a hidden scar on his head, his favorite pizza, and how he cheated on a high school Spanish test. 

She speaks familiar words and shares haunting memories that take him back to over two decades earlier when he lost his best friend in a tragic accident. 

“I’m afraid of what’s going to happen when you realize I’m not her.” 

Transcend is a sexy, mind-bending journey that uncovers possibilities, challenges beliefs, and begets the age-old question: is there life after death?

Synopsis:

Fate made us brothers, loyalty made us family.
 

A bond that runs deeper than the Mississippi, my brothers and I might not have the same DNA but what we share is far more powerful. Our loyalty to one another and the man who made us a family is stronger than those bound by blood.
 

The most sought out sharp shooters in the country, our paths were certain, before one woman changed my life and altered the relationship I have with my brothers.
 

Ryanne Lockwood disappeared without a trace but her memory never faded, torturing me on the darkest nights. Until a twist of fate leads me back to her, sending our worlds to collide once more, and this time, there will be no escaping me. 

*** 

Justice Creed’s bad boy appeal caught my attention from the moment he rolled into town. For years I watched from afar, swallowing up the rumors that surrounded him.
 

Until we shared a night of forbidden passion. One that destroyed my heart and reshaped my soul, and it sent me fleeing from the only town I’ve ever known. 

Now, years later, he's barged back into my life, uncovering a secret I've worked so hard to keep and it's one that will change our lives forever.

Review:


Justice was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!! This most anticipated book just became a top read on my 2018 list. I can't even handle all the feels I have for this story. I loved every single moment of my reading escape!

There is no better gift for a reader than to find a new cast of characters to fall in love with. If you are looking for your next unputdownable read, look no further. Justice is the book that will deliver ALL.THE.FEELS!!!! This is the first installment in The Creed Brothers Series and OMG!!!! The wait will be torture for the release of the other two installments. These brothers totally stole a piece of my heart and I just want to jump into this book and never leave their world! I have a huge book hangover and I wish I could read Justice for the very first time again.

The Creed Brothers have a reputation that follows them. Rumours about them have been circulating for as long as Ryanne Lockwood can remember. She's been fascinated with Justice Creed for a long time. His bad boy ways are intoxicating and she's about to discover that once a Creed brother says, "Mine", he means it.

Oh.my.sweet.baby. Jesus!!! 

The chemistry between Ryanne and Justice was so freakin’ hot that my clothes are melting off just thinking about them *Fans Face* They have such a powerful connection and I loved reading their love story. This reading journey was such a roller coaster ride of emotions!!! This book made me laugh and cry. I love when I read a story and I completely get transported into that world. I felt like I was another character in the story. I was happy when they lived beautiful moments and my heart broke when they went through difficult times. K.C. Lynn writes the best alpha males and the most feisty heroines. Her couples always know how to get under each other’s skin and the final result is always a fascinating reading journey! 

Don’t even get me started on the supporting cast of characters!!! I wanted to know everything about them. They each hold a piece of my heart and I can’t wait to reunite with them! Braxten and Knox will each get a book. They are so fascinating and I can’t wait to meet the heroines that will make them say, "Mine". Many secrets have yet to be revealed in this fascinating series and I have no doubt that the revelations of those secrets will leave me gasping for air. Phenomenal work by K.C. Lynn!

Rating:


I give, Justice, by K.C. Lynn, 5 sexy, hot, passionate, all-consuming, page-turning stars!

Synopsis:

London is a city in flames. Tensions are high and a critical situation is about to go from bad to worse. The Prime Minister wants to send a message, and the SAS will be the ones to deliver it. 

Emotional detachment is my specialty. I’m ruthless and cut throat, but there is nobody better. 

Sarah Tatem is an innocent. Caught up in a world in which she doesn’t belong, and trying desperately to do the right thing. My job is to keep her safe long enough to get what’s needed, and bring an end to this siege of terror. 

But something has changed. I’ve learned that the only thing stronger than loyalty is love, and now she’s gone. 

My name is Lieutenant Tom Harper, and I’m about to unleash hell.

    Excerpt:


I was practically kneeling in front of the screen as I tried to understand what I was seeing. Men were shouting at one another, though their words were indecipherable. 

The person filming darted out from behind a shipping container to take more shots. Everything was happening so fast, the camera moving wildly with the person it was attached to. Finally, I realised it was a body cam by the way it was flailing and jerking all over the place. I had no idea what shipyard they were in, but it made sense that the assault would be there rather than a boat. They would have wanted to take the terrorists after the handover happened, just to be sure. 

A soldier came into shot across the way, crouched behind another container, and I guessed he was one of ours. Covered from head to toe, it was impossible to know who it was, but I held my breath anyway. The camera at least became steady as the gunfire slowly ebbed, though focused now on the last of the targets. In the periphery of the screen, the kneeling soldier leant further forward to take a shot when he was yanked sharply backwards in a move that literally saved his life. As the last shot rang out, sounding a death knell to the terrorists who’d been responsible for taking so many innocent civilian lives, the rest of the team seemed to realise what I already knew. The rescuer, the guardian angel who’d ripped his teammate away from the path of certain death, had exposed himself to make the ultimate sacrifice, saving his friend’s life at the expense of his own. Soldiers darted in front of the camera again, and a few more indistinguishable voices called out before the silence. The excruciating, insufferable, tormenting silence, broken only by the clear voice that cut through the darkness like a scythe, ripping a hole through my heart as it did.             

“Man down.”  


Review:


I’m a big fan of R.J. Prescott’s Hurricane series. Those characters have stolen a piece of my heart and her writing style always captivates me from beginning to end! I was really excited to be introduced to an entirely new cast of characters and story. City Under Siege is an intense and passionate reading journey that kept me turning the pages until the very end. 

Since the death of her father and brother, Sarah Tatem’s life has been a mess. She has been thrown into a world she does not belong to. The family business is creating chaos in her life and her aunt is putting non-stop pressure on her. Her life is put in danger when secrets are revealed about her family. Enter Lieutenant Tom Harper. His job his to protect her from any danger that surrounds her. What he did not expect? Falling hard for her. She’s like a soothing balm to his broken soul. 

I really loved the slow burning romance between Sarah and Tom. Their chemistry was instant, but their love bloomed in the most beautiful way and caught them both by surprise. R.J. Prescott always makes us feel like we are another character in the story and not just a reader. I was at the edge of my seat many times during this reading escape. Tom was a fantastic hero and I loved how he deeply fell in love with Sarah. I was cheering for their HEA from the very beginning. I loved how Sarah pushed his buttons and made him step out of his comfort zone, which was letting someone in to love him. 

I’m completely in love with Eli, Will and Crash an Nan. They all contributed to this story in a fantastic way and they brought a smile to my face. R.J. Prescott is an amazing author that writes stories that linger with you for a long time. If you have not read anything by this author, you are seriously missing out! 

Rating:


I give, City Under Siege, by R.J. Prescott, 4.5 fierce, passionate, intriguing, heart-pumping stars!

Synopsis:

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons: 

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check. 


Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check. 


How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons: 


Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season. 


Check. Check. Check. 


I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss. 


Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town. 


Especially when he’s mean to you. 


Or so I thought. 


Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark. 


That was sort of how it all started with Rush. 


And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down. 


I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close. 


I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me. 


As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated. 


All good things must come to an end, right? 


Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming. 


Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.  

Growing up, the three of us were friends. 
He was the nerd. 
I was the playboy. 
She was the beauty. 

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. 

I went off to college, and he got the girl. 
Amber never knew how I felt. 
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.  

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. 
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room. 

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—the real me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) 

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.  
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Review:


I know without a doubt that when a new release from Penelope Ward is on the way, I’m in for an amazing reading journey. She always delivers all the feels and every story of her brings me happiness. She’s an author that I turn to when I’m feeling down or when I’m stuck in a book funk. 

In Gentleman Nine, we follow Amber and Channing. They have known each other for a long time, but never revealed their feelings to each other. Channing is sent to Boston for a three-month contract and on that occasion Amber offers him her spare room. Things get complicated between these roommates when Channing finds out that Amber communicated with a male escort. He takes matters into his own hands and answers back to her request as Gentleman Nine. What will happen when Amber finds out that Gentleman Nine is the man she’s had a crush on since she was a teenager? 

I have to admit that it took me a bit more time to connect with Amber and Channing. Even if I did find my connection later in the story, I really enjoyed this book. What I love about this author is how she always knows how to throw in a twist in her stories. I was not expecting what happened at all from the way things were playing out at the beginning of the story. The characters in this story have a bumpy road to navigate, but I loved all the moments that created their story. 

Rating:

I give, Gentleman Nine, by Penelope Ward, 4 intriguing, intense, friends-to-lovers stars!
