5* Review: The Birthday That Changed Everything -Debbie Johnson

108554-FC50Blurb - Coastal

She wanted a birthday surprise, just not the one she got…

The last thing Sally Summers expected from her husband on her special day was that he’d leave her for a Latvian lap dancer half her age. So with her world in tatters, Sally jets off to Turkey for some sun, sea and sanctuary.

The Blue Bay resort brings new friends and the perfect balm for Sally’s broken heart in gorgeous Dubliner James. He’s just the birthday present she needs. And when the chemistry between them continues to spark as the holiday ends, Sally wonders if this is more than just a summer fling.

But James has scars of his own and Sally isn’t quite ready to turn her back on her marriage. This birthday might have changed everything, but what will the next one bring?

My Review - Coastal

The Birthday That Changed Everything

 

This story is the perfect marriage of humour, poignancy and romance.
Sally’s marital relationship comes apart at the seams spectacularly just before she hits the big 40. Sally is grounded, selfless almost to the point of doormat status. Her wicked self depreciating sense of humour makes you giggle, even though you are reaching for the tissues, to wipe away your tears, as the hopelessness of her situations dawns on Sally. I loved her from our first encounter.
Simon her freewheeling husband is her antithesis and so easy to hate. True he is a caricature of a man in mid life crisis but there is enough realism in this character to make him recognisable and so easy to dislike.
The holiday crowd are interesting characters and provide a sympathetic foil for Sally’s phoenix like rise from the ashes of her marriage. Finally James is full of charm but his perfect body hides deep emotional scars, which threaten Sally’s future happiness. This is a rocky road and just when you think she has made it, life intervenes in a most unhelpful way. This story is easy to read and fast paced, I read it in a day but it’s perfect for a leisurely read too.
A new and refreshing romance for all fans of romantic comedy whatever their age.
I received a copy of this book from Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review.

5* Review: Too Hot to Handle (Bad Boys (Zero to 60) Book 10 – Susan Arden

Adult Read

28765640

 

Blurb 2016 -1

What began in a grueling game of cat-n-mouse with her step-uncle, has Margo on the move. In Never Say Never (prequel and included in Too Hot), she’s on the run and ends up doing a body slide right into the arms of a recently discharged Marine. Outside of a crazy fling, there’s zero room in her life for men. Handsome distractions are dangerous to her health.

From working a fence line and dealing with cattle, Rod is thrust back into the line of duty. And he promptly fails. He crosses the line in a no-brainer mission: go and get the girl. On no hands is he prepared for Margo or her smart-mouth, right hook, and cargo to hide.

Together Margo and Rod are as volatile as flint and gunpowder. Bordering on taboo, their raw attraction is a recipe for disaster. Especially when the stakes are raised.

Their stormy love affair forces them over the edge and out of their comfort zones as they wrangle in-laws, Mother Nature, and a slick conman. A regular trial by fire. But a battle worth fighting means taking a stand and they’ll do whatever it takes to stay together. Even if it means they have to lie, steal, cheat.
Or kill.

IT’S HOT.
IT’S DIRTY.
ZERO TO 60
SEX UP AGAINST A WALL AND SOME.

If you can’t stand the heat, better not come near this nuclear fusion Western, ’cause baby you will get burnt!

My Review 2016-1

28383748

This book gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘cute meet’-who knew airports could be this exciting?
I’ve wanted to read Rod’s story, the ex Marine with issues, since first meeting him in an earlier ‘Bad Boys’ book, and it doesn’t disappoint. This is a hard hitting, on the edge story. Margo and Rod’s exciting and unconventional relationship puts the reader through the emotional wringer. Emotion shadows every graphic and scorching touch, making it worth reading.
Margo carries too much guilt around with her for one so young and when you meet her step-uncle Axel you realise why. He is so easy to hate and the perfect antagonist for our anti-hero Rod who will save Margo at any cost, even if she doesn’t thank him for it.
Enriched by the setting at the rodeo and on the ranch, this fast paced love story is easy to read and hard to put down. If you like your cowboys sexy and troubled, your heroines feisty and opinionated and your love scenes detailed and raw, this is for you

5* Review: Sweet On You – Marianne Rice- The Wilde Sisters #1

SWEET ON YOU BY MARIANNE RICE
Designed by TOJ PUBLISHING SERVICES http://www.tojpublishing.com

 

Winter Blurb

An extravagant cake design brings small town baker Trent Kipson to fame…

After gaining social media exposure of his culinary art, Trent’s cake design goes viral. Soon he’s contacted by the Cooking Network to host a new show in California. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for the owner of a modest shop in Portland, Maine, and the financial freedom the network offers could be the answer to all of his monetary problems.

Fitness instructor Rayne Wilde wants the life every small-town girl dreams of…

Rayne wishes for a future full of romance and the pitter-patter of little feet. She wants it all, including a white picket fence and a dog named Spot—which is exactly why she refuses to sleep with Trent, the sexy man who attends her Zumba classes. After a series of dead-end relationships, this time she really is in love. Trent is special, and the fear of letting him slip through her fingers keeps her advances at bay.

Life is waiting—all it takes is a leap of faith…

As their friendship grows and skeletons creep out of their closets, their relationship is put to the test. Stakes get higher, and the spark between them burns hotter than ever before.

Can they handle the heat when life-changing secrets are exposed, or will the fear of being burned send them on two different paths?

Teaser Winter My Review

Sweet on You (Wilde Sisters #1)

This story has all the homely charm of a small town romance with beautifully drawn characters and a picture postcard setting. Add in the glamour of a newly crowned celebrity chef – Trent Kipson, who catches the eye of fitness fanatic and aptly named Rayne Wilde and you have an engaging story you can’t put down.
The plot twists are well timed and there are more than a few surprises for Rayne and Trent.
The chemistry between Rayne and Trent sizzles from their first cute meet and it builds in a realistically satisfying way. The love scenes are hot but not graphic and fit in with the romance and gentle ethos of the story.
The supporting characters give the story its authenticity. I particularly liked Brian. Rayne’s sisterly siblings are recognisable to anyone who has sisters and you find out just enough about them to make you want to discover their stories too.
This is a lovely romantic story with plenty of angst and passion, the perfect ingredients for a cosy winter read.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

Nine Lives – Erin Lee – Cover Reveal


NINE LIVES by Erin Lee

Standalone Novel

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Cover Designer: Wicked by Design

 

Three teenage sisters didn’t mean to destroy their family…

 Sisters Laina, Faith, and Sadie Nelson know they are to blame. There was no way to predict how their lives would shatter with just a few lies—but they did, and now they fear the pieces are too many to pick up.

 Had their parents let them leave, their father wouldn’t be behind bars…

 The girls just wanted to escape from their hyper-strict home and start lives of their own. If he’d just allowed them to spread their wings, their father wouldn’t be serving thirty years for a crime he didn’t commit.

 Sometimes you have to be creative to get your way, but creativity’s not always what it’s cracked up to be…

 With the lives of nine siblings hanging in the balance, what will it take for the girls to admit their deceit and recant their tales of abuse? And if they do, will there be any room for forgiveness?

 Family and friends are left to question everything they know about the legal system, social services, marriage, and family. 

 Can anyone really be trusted?

Can a family heal in the wake of false allegations, broken promises, and betrayal?

Or is it too late…

Blurb 2016 -1

Indiana Bernstein lives life in the fast lane…

Even when her famous father died in a race-car crash when she was fifteen, Indiana still dreamt of becoming a driver herself—but the terms of her father’s will required she finished college before claiming her inheritance. Putting her love of speed to good use, Indiana finished college by eighteen and pursued her goals…which also included superstar driver Richard Sand.

Richard Sand’s career meant everything to him…

A favorite of the fans and surrounded by beautiful women, Richard knew any hint of involvement with an underage girl would ruin him, and he was determined to stay away from fifteen year old Indiana, despite her obvious interest. But when she turned eighteen, there was no longer any reason to deny their attraction.

Their relationship is shattered when Richard’s past catches up to him…

 When Richard receives devastating news, it appears there is no chance of a happily-ever-after with Indiana, who kicks her dedication to the racing circuit into high gear and tries to outrun her pain. 

Then Indiana’s own career takes a turn for the worse, and she must learn whether there’s a future for her anywhere other than in the cockpit of a race-car. 

 Can Indiana find a way back to Richard and be the supportive woman he needs? 

The road ahead is far from easy…but the victory is sweet if you’re bold enough to take the risk on a fast man and a fast love.

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Blurb 2016- 2

After a tragic plane crash kills Jennie Taylor’s guardians, she returns to her childhood home—and her first love, Jared Stewart.

At just eighteen years old, Jennie had left the Unicorn Ranch in Texas to seek a life in the outside world. But she wasn’t just running toward independence. Heartbroken and confused, Jennie fled her home after Jared harshly rejected her on the eve of her birthday.

Now she must choose between making a new life on the ranch she has grown to love, or returning to her simple but empty life in England. The choice seems obvious at first, but nothing in life is simple…

Jared is forced to share control of his beloved ranch with the woman he wants but can’t have.

When Jennie receives an anonymous note, she goes to Jared for support. But what she finds is more than she was prepared for, driving the two further apart than ever. When an old friend is murdered and suspicious accidents escalate, endangering Jennie’s safety, Jared becomes her reluctant protector.

Jennie knows Jared is hiding something, but does he really want her gone from the ranch? And if so, could he be the one behind the ominous threats?

Determined to prove Jared isn’t involved, Jennie turns detective. Can she succeed in her courageous but reckless investigation…or is the truth a dangerous gift she won’t survive?

Author Bio 2016 -1

‘Writing has touched my life in every decade. At fifty, I took a risk and made writing my career, fulfilling a lifetime ambition.’

I enjoy writing blogs, book reviews and especially stories. Vivid imagery, atmospheric settings, strong females and sensual males are essential for my stories. Everyday life and ordinary people inspire me. How would someone react, if faced with something extraordinary? A thread of romance runs through my all my books, whether they be suspense, fantasy or historical.

I want to let my readers escape their lives for a while, experience new places, new people and most importantly, new emotional lows and highs My favorite parts of the writing process are; finding a person, event or place that makes me want to write a story about it and the writing itself; when your fingers cannot type fast enough, to transcribe your thoughts.

Family is very important to me. My two children are my greatest achievement to date.

I am an animal welfare supporter and regularly use social media to promote animal welfare issues.
