THE SWEETHEART MYSTERY
by Cheryl Ann Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 11/14/2017

Book Blurb:
Harper Jane Evans is so over pro cheerleading but she’s not quite ready for prison. Good thing she’s got a badass ex-boyfriend ready to go to bat for her.

Sure, Harper made a few unsavory threats against her team’s manager—she’d had a few drinks and she despised the skimpy uniform he expected her to wear. That didn’t mean she wanted him dead. But when the sleazy dude is found murdered in his tighty whiteys, Harper is the number one suspect—and former FBI agent Noah Slade is the one man who can help. Too bad she once told Noah she never wanted to see him again.

Noah may have done a number on Harper’s heart all those years ago, but he’s determined to do right by her now. Yet the fiery beauty isn’t the only demon from his past, which makes hunting down a murderer by her side . . . complicated—never mind the powerful attraction still pulsing between them. Good thing he’s willing to do just about anything to keep from losing Harper again. And an old love just might bring her a new career—assuming she can stay out of jail.

MERRILY IN LOVE
by Melissa
West
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Pub
Date: 11/7/2017
 
The Littleton brothers are as much a
part of Crestler’s Key as the sun and surf, living the single life
without a care. But love has a way of changing even the most
determined bachelor’s mind.
Brady Littleton has left his reckless youth
behind to become a man his brothers can count on. When the family
dive shop needs to expand, he’s got the answer: buy the Christmas
shop next door. Except the retiring owner’s goddaughter, Kylie
Waters, has come back to town. She was Brady’s first kiss—his
first everything—and she doesn’t want to sell. He’s got a
solution to that too. Whoever makes the most sales by Christmas Day
can take over the shop, fair and square.
Kylie resolved to put the youngest, wildest
Littleton brother out of her head when he abruptly ended their
relationship years ago. But the steady, gorgeous man he’s become is
impossible to ignore. Especially once reminiscing leads to a kiss as
hot and heady as mulled wine. Their deal means that one of them is
going to lose out on a dream…unless Christmas Day brings the gift
of a sweet, surprising second chance.

Looking
Back On Forever
by
Kat Alexander
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 
There
are moments in time that stand out more than others: your first kiss,
a special birthday party, seeing your baby for the first time, an
intimate conversation, a first date, even something as little as
sitting around a dining room table with friends. This is the story of
the moments that stood out after I first laid eyes on Noah Gish. ~
Claire Sawyer
The
city, it used to be a place I loved and missed with an ache in my
gut. It was home. The place where I grew up, where I had fun, where I
had my friends, where life was as good as I knew it to be. Then I was
shipped off to a place that begins the story of how I fell in love,
just to screw everything up. ~ Noah Gish
This
is a contemporary romance about first love and heartbreak.

Literature
is my passion. I like to challenge myself and grow in my writings. I
have many unfinished books and some that have been published under a
different name. Why I chose to do this is because of my writing
growth and the differentiation in genre. I don’t want my future books
to be judged by the inexperience of my past writings. Though I love
those books, they came out of nowhere and it’s apparent in the
writings they were a first draft from someone with no experience.
My
passions include the arts–music, photography, writing, dance,
painting, films, architecture, anything that is creation. There is
not much I don’t like; and if I don’t like it, I at least appreciate
the process that took place to create it. This is something
incorporated in all my books. I’ve known so many talented people, and
truly believe no one is without a talent. Everyone has something
ingrained in them; just naturally gives them the ability to create
new life in the form of art.
In
my spare time, which is basically non-existent between my day job and
writing, I enjoy being out in nature, travelling, spending time with
family, and reading. I read everything, from contemporary to
paranormal, from historical romance to erotica, from history to
science. Learning is something very important to me. I really do
learn something new everyday, my brain storing so much useless to
life-saving information. My brain, the sponge.

Love will be the biggest win of all.

BEGINNER’S LUCK
by Kate Clayborn
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Pub Date: 10/31/2017
 
 
When three friends impulsively buy a
lottery ticket, they never suspect the many ways their lives will
change—or that for each of them, love will be the biggest win of
all.
Kit Averin is anything but a gambler. A
scientist with a quiet, steady job at a university, Kit’s focus has
always been maintaining the acceptable status quo. Being a sudden
millionaire doesn’t change that, with one exception: the
fixer-upper she plans to buy, her first and only real home. It’s
more than enough to keep her busy, until an unsettlingly handsome,
charming, and determined corporate recruiter shows up in her lab—and
manages to work his way into her heart . . .
Ben Tucker is surprised to find that the
scientist he wants for Beaumont Materials is a young woman—and a
beautiful, sharp-witted one at that. Talking her into a big-money
position with his firm is harder than he expects, but he’s willing
to put in the time, especially when sticking around for the summer
gives him a chance to reconnect with his dad. But the longer he
stays, the more questions he has about his own future—and who might
be in it.
What begins as a chilly rebuff soon heats up
into an attraction neither Kit nor Ben can deny—and finding
themselves lucky in love might just be priceless . . .

PUPPY LOVE
by Kelly Moran
Pub. Date: 2/28/2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny
of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants
is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter,
Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right
ingredients. Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian.
The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible
allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the
well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it
appears playing Cupid is one of them.
Cade O’Grady has never met a woman he
couldn’t handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one
night cradling an injured puppy, he’s struck stupid. Which might
explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she’s
working for his family’s clinic, he doesn’t have to lust from a
distance. He might just have a chance at convincing Avery—and her
too-guarded heart—that falling for the right man isn’t a mistake .

NEW TRICKS
by Kelly Moran
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 9/26/2017
Loving someone is something you
never forget how to do . . .
Zoe Hornsby has enough on her plate.
Her pet grooming business tucked inside her friends’ veterinarian
clinic is busy, and all her free time outside of work is dedicated to
caring for her mother’s ailing mind. Dating is certainly not on her
agenda. For all she cares, the town gossips of Redwood Ridge, Oregon,
can set their matchmaking sights on someone else. Because no way
would she consider sexy veterinarian Drake O’Grady her perfect guy.
Once upon a time, she may have harbored a little crush, but he’d
only had eyes for her best friend. And the crazy attraction building
between her and Drake now? Down boy, down.
After Drake lost his wife to cancer,
he’s finally clawed his way out of grief and beginning to feel more
like a part of the human race. But he’s appalled to learn his
prying family thinks he’s ready to jump in the dating pool. And the
woman they thrust at him couldn’t be more inappropriate. As his
dead wife’s best friend, Zoe is off limits. Even if they seem to
share a common sadness, she is too potent a personality to get
romantically tangled with. Yet she’s making his heart beat and
blood roar like he never thought it could again. And he doesn’t want
to just exist anymore . . .

until the day Abigail dumped Hal, after he left for university, back in 1983. Hal was so devastated that he went home less and less until, in the end, he didn’t go home at all. And he never got over her, even after he married the wealthy Julienne. Their marriage was doomed from the start;

Love under Construction

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Love Under Construction blurb

What do you do when your boss makes someone else the lead on a big renovation project that should rightfully be yours? You quit. On second thought, that might not be the best idea, but Charlee Jackson has never been one for second thoughts. Instead, she lands a big contract of her own. She’s jumping into her new life—work boots, tool belt and all. Now she just needs to form a company and hire contractors and buy supplies and get an office and not fall in love with her former boss’s son. Yeah. Definitely not that last one.

51a+BEDXopL._SX336_BO1,204,203,200_

You can’t date someone who works for you, but now that his dad let Charlee walk out the door, Peter Elliot is considering his options. Charlee was their top renovation expert, his best friend’s sister, and the only thing that made the drudgery of running a large construction business bearable. But how do you date a competitor, especially one your father is trying to drive out of business? It would be stupid to make your dad angry right before he retires and hands the company over to you. Right?

When Charlee and Peter are scheduled to work on the same Indulgence Row house, their feelings and priorities are put to the test. They need to make a choice, and they better be quick about it, because the whole mixture is curing fast and threatening to crumble to pieces.

My Review: 5 stars

Love Under Construction by Danyelle Ferguson is a delightful clean romance that will help you escape your life for a few hours. It is the kind of book that you want to read on a lazy day with a cool drink in the summer or a hot cocoa in the winter. Either way you will find it a great escape from your everyday life. The ending will make you say “Ohhhhhhhhh” and sigh.

Love Under Construction is a great story about two normal people that need to sort out their feelings for each other and their personal ghosts. It is fun to see how Charlee, the main character grows and the different things she learns and the progress she had during the telling. Peter also has some growing to do, and they need to learn how to relate to each other.

Being her own boss means a lot of pressure falls on Charlee’s shoulders. This is a pressure that heightens when she discovers that Peter, her brother’s best friend, may have feelings for her. However, the problem only arises when Peter’s father comes between them, out of revenge, and pandemonium breaks loose.

Love Under Construction is a clean book even for YA, but it is intended for adults. Enjoy…
