Review: Reveling in Sin, by Meghan March


Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect. To keep. To cherish. I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her. I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option. No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever   
5 out of 5 stars

Meghan March the queen of twists you never see coming!  How is it possible one author can continue to surprise me with the twists and turns of every single plot in every single book she has written?  Nevertheless I love it and I'm going to keep coming back for more and more.  I mean clearly Whtney and Lincoln are going to end up together - they are destined to be together.  That much was obvious and the journey in all three of the books in this series never for one second disappointed.  What I loved so much about the final installment is we finally get to see Whitney and Lincoln actually team up, trust one another and truly fight for their own HEA.  It was pure perfection.  Their characters have grown, evolved and they've finally realized they are stronger together than they are apart.  I'm also going to commend Meghan's ability to cross over character's from other series into each other.  No one else I've ever read has been able to do is as seamlessly.   

This series isn't just a second-chance romance.  It's so much more.  It's drama and chaos with twists and turns.  Kind of like a soap opera where characters lie to one another, where you believe one person is so good only to find out you really don't know them as well as you think you do.  It truly encompasses all aspects of family relations from love and protection to drama and surprise.  I could go on and on but Meghan March's books are the kind of stories enjoyed best when you go into them with as little knowledge as possible.  Just one click, sit back, get sucked into the story and let you own reality slip away.

Review: The Dauntless (Spy Girl #5), by Jillian Dodd

From USA Today bestselling author Jillian Dodd comes the fifth book in a sizzling series filled with action and adventure. Fans of The Selection and The Hunger Games will discover a heart-pounding thrill ride of espionage and suspense set in glittering high society.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Thank goodness this book is finally out!  I have a love hate relationship with cliff hangers.  I love how they leaving me wanting more while at the same time find myself frustrated with having to wait what feels like forever for the next installment to release.  I couldn't wait to jump right in and see what would happen with Lorenzo and Huntley now that the Queen announced, without warning, an engagement between Lorenzo and Lizzie.  Secretly what I most hoped were these two characters wouldn't go back to square one.  I really didn't want to see their character regress.  I won't give it all away but I'm pleased to say not only was I not disappointed but I really think Lorenzo and Huntley managed to strengthen their bond.

While the pace of this book never slows down I found myself reading slower than my normal pace.  Partly due to wanting to savor my time with these characters and partly because I found myself even more engrossed with the "spy" part of the story.  I think in some of the previous book within this series I've felt lost or even overwhelmed but I think having Huntley go "rogue" and work through all the details in her mind helped me get a better grasp of all the different players in this mission.

The Dauntless is a page-turner filled with lots of surprises, and honestly a lot of love and I'm not just talking about the romantic kind.  Boundaries are established and then their pushed.  We're introduced to a new character and we even get to know a couple of regular ones on a deeper level.  You're constantly trying to figure out who can be trusted, whose the enemy and what's their end game.  Of course by the time you reach the end you're left with another pretty crazy cliffhanger - one I never even saw coming.  But it's one I think is going to take this series to the next level.  Well done Jillian Dodd!  I don't know how you keep dreaming up these stories but I hope you never stop!

Review: Dangerous Exes, by Rachel Van Dyken

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s scorching series, revenge is a justified pleasure…
Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered.

Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love!

Actually…could it be?

Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.

4.5 out of 5 stars

We loved the first book in this series, Dirty Exes, so as soon as the widget for book 2 arrived in our inbox I immediately downloaded it and managed to devour it in one sitting.  I'm more than happy to report this one is equally good if not better!!!

Jessie and Isla couldn't be more different and as much as they want to hate and destroy one another their undeniable chemistry manages to thwart their best laid plans.  Jessie and Isla are both strong characters, yeah they each have a few hang-ups but overall they are easily likeable and you just cannot help but root for them as a couple.  

It's a story full of pranks, lough-out loud moments, a crazy aunt, a good dose of angst with a side of drama.  You won't be able to put it down and when the last page is turned you're going to be grinning from ear to ear.  It's a happily ever after, but the journey from beginning to end is the best part.
