Review: Bayside's Most Unexpected Bride

Bayside's Most Unexpected Bride Bayside's Most Unexpected Bride by Kerri Carpenter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bayside's Most Unexpected Bride by Kerri Carpenter is the third book in the Saved By the Blog Series. This series has always been comical and focused on the town of Bayside and its paper The Bugle. The Bayside Blogger's identity has been a secret for years. Now the Bugle is in trouble and the only way to save it may very well be to tell the identity of the one person keeping the paper alive.

For months we have all been wondering who the idenity of the Bayside blogger is but when we are finally faced with it do we really want to know. Will that kill anomity of the gossip column and the comical side of the books. I can not think Kerri Carpenter enough for continuously bringing us this wonderful set of books based in such a lovely small town where they all look out for each other.

Review: BRINGING ROSIE HOME!

Bringing Rosie HomeBringing Rosie Home by Loree Lough
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bringing Rosie Home by Loree Lough is the second book in the mini series By the way of the lighthouse. It is also my second book by Loree. I must say I was yet again I was absolutely blown away. This book has so much love, respect, hurt, and pain. She takes us to depths I never imagined I would feel while reading. This book shows us forgiveness not just toward others but toward oneself. Loree touched such a horrifying subject with this book. It is literally every parents worst nightmare. She showed us the terror and pain as well as how to rebuild from that terror and pain. I am in awww.

I am not going to summarize this book for you because I will be in tears. Loree Lough I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to read this heartwrenching book.

Review and Blog Tour Something To Treasure

Something to TreasureSomething to Treasure by Virginia McCullough
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Something to Treasure by Virginia McCullough is something special. This book is heartfelt and inspiring. Jerrod has a history that can make it hard to move on and overcome tings in life. People all react to grief differently. Dawn has been broken and beaten down by life but refuses to give up on happily ever after. She knows what she wants and what she deserves. She will get in one day.

Mixing a family can be hard but when members of that family already adore one another it could be easier if those involved didn't wallow in self pity. Jarrod and Dawn both have reasons to stay clear of wanna another and work with one another. I loved every minute of watching these two find the way past the attraction to each other. I have to say this was visit to Two Moon Bay that I just adored.

Review: Double Shot to the Heart

Double Shot to the Heart Double Shot to the Heart by J. Margot Critch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mob sex and coffee!!!! Yes you read that correctly. What about that isn't to die for? I personally am not a coffee fan but I do love cute little coffee shops the aroma is amazing. I wish I had been setting in while reading this. On second thought as hot as this book gets that may not have been a good idea.

A Hot cop undercover, a shoot out in an alley behind a coffee shop. This book is fast paced and intense. I couldn't put it down. I absolutely loved the way Mitch handled this situations that arose in this book. I adored it.

Bump and Grind by J. Margot Critch is amazing. The sexual chemistry in this book will warm you up instantly. I could feel the heat coming from the pages.

If you love danger, heat, and sex appeal you won't put this one down.

Review: Claiming His Secret Heir

Claiming His Secret HeirClaiming His Secret Heir by Joanne Rock
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Claiming His Secret Heir is the 5th book in the McNeil family series by Joanne Rock. This series has held my attention from book one. I can not ever wait to get my hands on the next one.

Damon's story is no different. Finding his missing wife at his gate when she mysteriously vanished months before, who can blame him of being weary when her own family says she left him on her own accord.

Caroline must find out why her husband never reported her missing. Did he love her or was it all for financial gain like her father stated.

Damon and Caroline are a formitable team. Trusting each other to help the other one so they can protect one another pushes them forward so they can get to the bottom of her fathers secrets. This book is awesome.
