Review: Sisters Like Us

Sisters Like Us Sisters Like Us by Susan Mallery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I listened to the audio book of this one. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the contrast between the sisters as well as the mother. Harper and Stacey live to completely different lifestyles and feel completely out of their element with their mother. Nothing is ever good enough for her.

Review: Her Dirty Little Secret

Her Dirty Little Secret Her Dirty Little Secret by J.C. Harroway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her Dirty Little Secret by J.C. Harroway is the second book in new dare line that I have read by here. I thoroughly enjoyed this one! Her Dirty Little Secret is a second chance romance. The sexual chemistry between Jack and Harley is at first built on revenge and getting even with the one person that Jack thought he couldn't have.

The braveness of Harley is what lead me to love this story. She fights for everything she believes in. She constantly battles her own demons and moves forward not letting her past hold her back. Even if her family will not approve of her secret lover. I can not wait to see what J.C. Harroway has in store for us in the future.

Review: Unmasked

Unmasked Unmasked by Stefanie London
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Unmasked by Stefanie London is the fist in the Melbourne After Dark series. I have read London's work in the past and always enjoyed it. Therefore I was thoroughly looking forward to this one. It did not disappoint. I can't believe how easily the flow of this book reads. Everything literally falls into place.

Lainey is amazing. I love the fact that she goes after what she wants no matter the consequences. The way that she brings herself into her best friends brothers life may not be approved by some but was very interesting to say the least. I could not put this book down. I had to know exactly how it ended. What an amazing read.

Review: Taking Chase

Taking Chase Taking Chase by Lauren Dane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Taking Chase is the second book in the Chase Brother's series by Lauren Dane. This family is absolutely amazing and draws you in completely. I would love to be a part of the Chase clan. They make everyone around them feel loved and supported. Heaven forbid one of the Chase boys set their sights on a female because she will be his no matter what stands in the way. He will kill anyone trying to cause harm to her as well.

Cassie and Shane are amazing together. At first it was a little hard for me because I honestly rooted for Chase to get Maggie in the first book. Yet seeing him thrown so completely out of his element within one look of Cassie was worth it. I adored getting to visit with the Chase clan again. I can't wait to see what the future holds for the rest of the Chase boys!

First Crush, Last Love
by Elizabeth McKenna
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 314 pages
August 1st 2017

Back in high school, Lee Archer made Jessie Baxter’s cheeks flush and her heart race. But the popular athlete never wanted to be more than just friends. Ten years later, after a failed marriage and with her journalism career on shaky ground, Jessie’s come home for her high school reunion—and Lee still has the power to make her knees weak and her pulse pound.

Lee’s teenage years were filled with more trauma and drama than anyone guessed. Though his damaged past has helped make him a successful police detective, it’s hurt every relationship he’s tried. But seeing the grown-up, stunning Jessie might just change his commitment-phobic mind.

Jessie’s psycho ex-husband had her convinced no one would ever love her, but Lee is ready to step out of the friend zone and into her heart. Can she learn to trust again before she loses her chance to turn her first crush into her last love?

Elizabeth McKenna’s novel will have you remembering the angst of high school, the grief of a failed relationship, and the joy of finding true love at last.

About the Author

Though Elizabeth McKenna’s love of books reaches back to her childhood, she had never read a romance novel until her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene). With the urging of her children, she decided to write her own Happily Ever Afters.

Elizabeth lives in Wisconsin with her understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a sassy Labrador. When she isn’t writing, working, or being a mom, she’s sleeping.

Burn Me Once

Burn Me OnceBurn Me Once by Clare Connelly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Burn Me Once by Clare Connelly is amazing. It kept me well entertained. I loved the flow of creativity between Ethan and Ally. They came from two completely different worlds yet adapted so easily to being part of each other's lives. When something is real you just connect and that is exactly what happens between the two. The chemistry is mind blowing from the beginning. They sizzle off each other. :) I can not wait to get my hands on more.

Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs.

Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…
