5* Review: The Return of the Rebel – Jennifer Faye

The Return of the Rebel

‘The Return of the Rebel’ by Jennifer Faye was last week’s Friday read. Here’s what it’s about:

The guy from the wrong side of the tracks…

Being promoted should be a dream come true, only it means working closely with Cleo’s childhood crush, Jax Monroe. Jax may no longer be the rebel she remembers, but he still gets her heart racing like no other.

Jax cares too much about Cleo to let her get too close—but keeping his distance is proving impossible! As Jax reveals the extent of what he’s been through, will Cleo show him that some things are too precious to put off until tomorrow?

Return of the Rebel releases on 1 July 2014:

My Review

‘The Return of the Rebel’ is a lovely sweet romance with memorable, likeable characters and a lively plot with dangerous undercurrents.
Cleo the only girl in a family of ranchers knows their lifestyle is not for her. Las Vegas is the polar opposite of Hope Springs but Cleo weighed down by other people’s expectations and a tragic secret is determined to make a new life there. Serendipity brings her face to face with Jax her teenage crush and now the client she must impress to succeed.
Jax left Hope Springs without a backward glance, anxious to leave behind tragic memories and the feeling of never being good enough. Luck and hard work made him wealthy beyond his expectations but illness and an impending court case leave him more vulnerable than he would choose.
Danger forces Cleo into close proximity with Jax rekindling her teenage crush into love. Unfortunately Jax’s inner doubts and the fallout of his secrets jeopardize their fledgling relation.
Powerful romance, great characters and a strong thread of suspense make this story a pleasure to read.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4*Review: Morgan’s Match – Krystal Shannan -Short Story

718f3c33f62a5941773de65f7a7a3d7ed1eaf443-thumbWhat’s a girl to do when she can find love for everyone but herself? Computer genius and matchmaking witch extraordinaire, Morgan O’Neal, created a computer program from an old family recipe. Her business is a huge success, churning out dozens of matched happy couples, but her love life is still where it stalled out years ago.

The biggest catch to being a matchmaker…you can’t work a spell on yourself.

When Connor McGuire, hot high school flame, suddenly inserts himself back into her life, will the hunky Irish warlock seal the deal? Or will a decade-old betrayal keep them apart forever?

 

My Review

I loved this sexy, romantic paranormal short story.
Morgan is a witch with Irish ancestry and a huge magical family. A successful career woman, she combined her inherited skills with technical knowledge and created the perfect dating match programme. Settled in Texas she has found her true self but not her soul mate.
Morgan and Connor are well-developed characters which have great chemistry. The sensual romance enhances the story. There are lots of clues to other interesting characters and stories which I hope the author will write about soon.This is the first story I have read by this author and I look forward to reading more of her paranormal romantic tales.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5* Review: The Trouble with Mojitos Romy Sommer

The Trouble with MojitosSet on islands shrouded in superstition and legend The Trouble with Mojitos is a romantic sensual read.

Rik’s tattoos, long hair and beard catapult him to the top of Kenzie’s men to avoid list until she discovers they are a disguise rather than a statement.

Kenzie’s serial bad judgement regards men means she is a disappointment to her mother and lives in her family orientated brother’s shadow. Vulnerable, honest and loyal Kenzie is likeable she wants to be respected for her life choices and not seen as a failure by those who should support her. Her latest job as a film location scout is make or break so she puts aside her mistrust of Rik and lets him be her exclusive tour guide.

Sexy and troubled Rik seeks the islands’ anonymity whilst he salvages his train wreck of a life. At an all time low when he meets Kenzie he can’t resist helping her. Determined she will succumb to their mutual attraction.

Vividly descriptive you feel the Caribbean humidity, visualise the crystal blue sea and scent the dense forest greenery. Kenzie and Rik’s make creative use of their idyllic surroundings when their volatile chemistry explodes into sensual loving.

Rik faces his past and keeps Kenzie at his side. My sigh of relief proves premature. The penultimate plot twist reveals Kenzie’s destructive past secrets.

The romantic ending is true Hollywood and a final unexpected twist paves the way for a further chapter of this modern fairytale.
