So even though the beautiful, fandom lovingย ๐™…๐™š๐™ง๐™จ๐™š๐™ฎย ๐˜ฝ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ฃ๐™š๐™งย is tugging at his chest in funny ways, he doesnโ€™t intend on acting on those emotions. Not when heโ€™ll eventually be moving on, and sheโ€™ll be staying behind.

But when Jersey suddenly finds herself in desperate need of medical care that she canโ€™t afford, Truck does the only thing he can think of to helpโ€ฆ he marries her.

Jersey has been struggling to keep her and her sister afloat ever since their dad was sent to jail. The pain she feels on a regular basis isnโ€™t anything she can stop to thinkย aboutย until she ends up at the E.R. in the protective arms of the one man who makes her pulse beat faster than the superheroes she worships.

When chaosย invades theirย lives, theirย temporaryย deal starts to crumble, leaving hearts and souls twined together in such a way that thereโ€™s little chance of escape without permanent damage.ย Unlessย they just surrender to it all and let love heal them both.

Fromย award-winningย author, LJ Evans, comes a novel inspired by Lady Antebellumโ€™s โ€œOceanโ€ aboutย resilience and love.ย You donโ€™t want to miss this slow burn, military romance.

ALL THE FEELS… that’s what this book did to me.ย  Had my emotions everywhere.

Jersey & Travis – I fell in love with him at “marry me”.ย  And I empathized with Jersey throughout the book.ย  She and I have so much in common and he was just the perfect Captain Coast Guard.

As usual LJ did not disappoint with this story.ย  It was beautifully written.ย  Has real life issues that isn’t addressed enough.ย  Has real love in it, and not the fairy tale type.ย  The unusual type.ย  The type that makes it real and makes you work at it.ย  The type we don’t believe we deserve.

Both these characters are broken in a sense.ย  Both feel responsible for the situation that they’re in.ย  Both feel like failures, even too each other.ย  And yet, they are both superheroes in their own right and perfect for each other!

I have read every one of the books in the Anchor Series and let me tell you, they keep getting better and better.ย  This author has the gift of telling stories that pull at your heartstrings.

Go! Read this book.ย  There’s love, sibling complications, a coastie to fall in love with and a comic loving heroine.

five stars

Avenged by Love will be released on 29 April 2020.

Book Review: KEEPING SECRETS by Weston Parker


My Easter Weekend was filled with some Romantic reads and this was one I wanted to talk about.


Itโ€™s no secret that me and love donโ€™t mix.

Not after it schemed to rip my heart out and leave me a single father.

The biggest question I have is what to do with forever now that my wife is gone.

As much as I hate it, itโ€™s time for a break from my famous life.

A year off to spend time with my little girl is what the doctor ordered.

Giggles, smiles, and tons of ice cream for the two of us.

And somehow, the most beautiful woman Iโ€™ve ever seen runs the ice-cream parlor.

But getting involved isnโ€™t a choice. Not even when my little girl falls head over heels for this woman thatโ€™s stealing my every thought.

No matter how much I want to give up everything for the curvy girl thatโ€™s rocking my world day and night.

She deserves far more than me, but Iโ€™m just selfish enough to want to deny her another lover.

To take up residence in her heart and stay.

It gets even more serious when I find myself playing her fake boyfriend to her uppity mother.

Itโ€™s a part Iโ€™d love to play daily.

The promise of healing, love, and a big family have me running fast and hard because that same question plays over and over againโ€ฆ

What if fate takes her away too?


I loved this dedication so much that I had to share it with you.ย 


Do you believe in love after losing the love of your life?

This single dad romance was lovely.ย  It was so special to see the love he had for his daughter.ย  Putting her first.ย  Then he falls for someone, who has not only captured his heart, but has captured his little girl’s heart too.

I loved this little love story.ย  I loved the way this rock star dad put his daughter’s needs above his own.ย  I love how he forgave himself for feeling the guilt he did for falling in love with someone else after his tragic loss of his baby mamma.

Tiffeny and Callen definetly tried hard to figure out the pull they had, but they clearly could not resist it.

A lovely little love story that captured my heart and I certainly fell in love with little Winter

four star rating

Yes I recommend this read, especially if you’re into single dad romance.



Book Review: Vendetta In Death by JD Robb

I received this book from Jonathan Ball Publishers in exchange for an honest review.


When a family man is tortured, killed and dumped in front of his home for all the world to see, Eve Dallas knows she is on the hunt for a particularly dangerous killer. But death uncovers secrets and the killer leaves a note revealing the victim to be far from the family man he appears.

As Eve works to link victim and killer, another body is found. Another man with a dark and murky past.

The race is on before the killer strikes again but Eve must wrestle with her demons and her conscience as she decides whether she really wants to protect men who may just deserve everything they get…


Men! Beware! Lady Justice is out looking for revenge!

This was the feeling of this book. It’s my first “In Death” book and I must say I quite enjoyed it. Took me a while to read because life but read it I did. It’s great reading about two strong female lead characters. They’re strong, work together as a team and lift each other up.

JD Robb did a great job of this story. I always enjoy a good crime novel but very seldom find one with a good female presence. Women are usually the victim but, not in this story. Here you’re bound to find women as victim, cop, perpetrator.

If you enjoy a good crime novel, this is a good one to read.


Book Review: The Pact by Amy Heydenrych

I received this book by Jonathan Ball Publisher in exchange for an honest review.


What if a prank leads to murder?

When Freya arrives at her dream job with the city’s hottest start-up, she can’t wait to begin a new and exciting life, including dating her new colleague Jay. However, Nicole, Jay’s ex and fellow employee, seems intent on making her life a misery.

After a big deadline, where Nicole continually picks on her, Freya snaps and tells Jay about the bullying and together they concoct a revenge prank. The next morning, Nicole is found dead in her apartment . . .

Is this just a prank gone wrong? Or does Freya know someone who is capable of murder – and could she be next?


Who is it? Is it Jay? Julian? Kate? Freya? Who did it? The question I kept asking while reading this book.

The story goes back and forth into the lives of Freya and Isla. We learn about what brought them here to this point in their lives. What makes them survivors of sexual abuse.

It’s a story of bullying in the workplace. A story of sexual harassment. A story of how easy predators get away with this type of abuse because they have money and power. Or so they think.

I loved the plot twist at the end!

This book was well written and I’m sure touched something in readers who have experienced this type of abuse in their lives some way or another.

A great read. And I understand why the hype was about. Well done to Amy Heydenrych
