For The Love of Summer by Susan Mallery

So much happening in this newest book by Susan Mallery and now that I have finished, found myself wishing for more to continue the story. Loved the interaction between characters and the problems, solutions and final chapter of the book. A definite addition to your TBR list, do not miss this one.

Currently reading Never Fall For the Bride’s Father by Julia Kent!

Stolen By The Billionaire by Blair Babylon

This is the third of the “best” friends from Le Rosey. We have read Twist, Shine and now are in process of learning of the ultimate betrayals.  The end of this story is a cliffhanger (just a warning) and I sincerely hope for a light at the end of the tunnel. I knew Logan was dicey, from the earlier books, but this puts all in question. One good thing, is Blair usually does not make us wait too long for the next book, as I hate cliffhangers with a passion. A definite addition to your TBR LIST.  Don’t miss this one.

Blurb

I am an American Navy SEAL, and I will not be blackmailed by a goddamn Russian mafia boss.
Years ago, I parlayed a loan into a billion-dollar crypto fortune. The head of the White Russian Syndicate is demanding I pay it back in illegal military-grade weapons, but I won't. I will not be responsible for adding to the misery of innocents.
It's time to hit back at the head of the White Russian Syndicate.
So I kidnap the mafia boss's niece.
Who I did not realize is my best friend's estranged little sister.
Who he's never mentioned.
Not even once.
Sarah is a sweet little hayseed right off her Iowa farm, but when the mafia boss decides she's a liability to eliminate, she becomes my responsibility to protect.
We're on the run. But with each passing day, with each attack I defend her from, every hotel room with only one bed, I'm starting to fall for her.
The Russian mafia wants Sarah dead, and her brother is going to murder me when he finds out I've gone too far with his sister.

Deadly Trap by Barbara Freethy

Twisty, turney, romance with a side of family drama. Totally enjoyed this newest book in the FBI series. Nick who is due for a well needed vacation and Isabella who has been ordered to take time and consider her attitude, have met before and found each other lacking, team up to solve this whodunnit. Mystery at its best. Do not miss this addition to a great series.

Lenny Marks Gets Away With Murder by Kerryn Mayne

Lenny Marks is an awkward, repressed but amazingly intelligent person, who is dealing, or not, with her repressed past. The story is sad, sometimes endearing and painfully tragic. Such a good read. Not hearts and flowers, but deeply touched by her stamina, determination and strong sense of right and wrong. Excellent read.

Years ago, I parlayed a loan into a billion-dollar crypto fortune. The head of the White Russian Syndicate is demanding I pay it back in illegal military-grade weapons, but I won’t. I will not be responsible for adding to the misery of innocents.

Right Where We Left Us by Jen Devon

So much of this story turned into redundancy. To start with, I liked this, then it got long, and then longer. My go to quote: “The pining was excruciating. Truly.” I honestly kept thinking, something will change and not much did. I gave five stars because someone will love this, just not me.

Mind Games by Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts has outdone herself with this newest book. All the feels are here and I admit, I cried, laughed and felt the true, bright love wrapped in this story along with a side of her signature magic. A definite “do not miss” read. If you love Ms. Robert’s past books, you will not be disappointed. If this is your first Nora read, an excellent place to start your journey.

Being the star of the world’s most viral runaway bride video wasn’t how I envisioned my future when I woke up on my wedding morning, but here we are.

 

With me hiding from the world in Fiji where I’m now honeymooning solo.

 

And where I just tripped over my number one celebrity crush, hungover and sleeping on my little porch.

 

Turns out Jonas Rutherford, Razzle Dazzle movie star and heir to the entertainment conglomerate’s billions, is having his own relationship issues and is here hiding too after details of his scandalous divorce went public.

 

I didn’t think inviting him in for a hangover cure would lead to us getting friendly. And friendlier. And then—okay, yes.

 

I slept with him. Who can blame a girl? When you’re suddenly unexpectedly single and the number one guy on your freebie list is available, you leap.

 

But when I wake up the next morning, I discover I’m not the only runaway in my life, because he’s just ghosted me.

 

It’s fine. I’m fine. Neither one of us is in a position to start an actual relationship.

 

But three years later?

 

When he crashes my brother’s wedding?

 

Where the son that he’s just discovered he has is serving as ring bearer?

 

Life was a lot easier when I was just a runaway bride.

 

The Bride’s Runaway Billionaire is a deliciously juicy and utterly swoony romcom featuring a jaded optimist who’s had enough of the limelight, a happy-go-lucky celebrity whose world has been upside down since that fling after his divorce, the most adorable two-year-old on the planet, and a chicken with an attitude. While this book stands alone, you won’t go wrong to read The Worst Wedding Date, The Gossip and the Grump, and The Last Eligible Billionaire first.

 

Also available in the Three BFFS and a Wedding series + read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited

Tangled Up in You by Christina Lauren

Loved this book. Another home run, by these two authors. Fitz has so many secrets, all that affect not only his current life, but how he deals with the circus of his past. Then the breath of fresh air, named Ren rushes in and the world explodes into fireworks. Lots going on, lots of trials and tribulations. Really good read, the ending was lite and left me feeling the storyline was not quite complete, but a definite addition to your TBR List.

The BOOM.

 

The heart-pounding, inexplicable sensation of falling in love. An emotional pull that can complete a man in one second and destroy him in the next.

 

Hunter Banks, eldest brother, consummate bachelor, and family protector. When he receives a call from Cobi Mayson, needing his help, Hunter agrees. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep his family safe. Including going undercover and back to where everything started for Ireland—Lux Automotive.

 

However, helping a friend comes at a price, and now, the balance is due.

 

Posey Roberts doesn’t like liars. Even lies of omission. If a person couldn’t tell the truth, they’re either hiding something or guilty of doing something else. She’d learned that lesson several times over while in the foster care system until her adoptive mom stepped in. Now, as a social worker, Posey helps children in need, including Destiny Banks, a six-month-old baby girl.

 

When she arrives at Hunter’s home, Posey’s ready to tear Hunter apart. Until she meets the Viking-God in person and everything else disappears. Unfortunately for her, Hunter is off limits. She has a job to do, protect Destiny at all costs.

 

The web of lies Hunter has woven to safeguard his family are coming apart at the seams. Telling Posey the truth could put her and Destiny in danger. Continuing to lie to her will tear them apart. Meeting his Boom was supposed to be an adventure, but when the truth comes out, Hunter will have no one else to blame but himself.

 

The Boom is supposed to be forever.

 

What if this time it’s not?

 

Until Posey is part of Aurora Rose Reynolds's Happily Ever Alpha World.  If you loved Until Cobi, Until Ireland and Until Waverly, then you will want to read Until Posey.

Can you imagine getting stuck alone on a deserted island with the person you hate most in the world? And no end in sight?

Well, that’s me. Bailey Johansson, former assistant to the absolute worst boss ever to boss in the boss world. Stranded on a tiny island owned by a cruise line in an abandoned party hut.

In a tropical storm.

This is not a love story.
It’s not a tale of redemption or heroism.

It’s a revenge drama. No — a revenge COMEDY.

Because I’ll get the last laugh. The cruise ship leaving early due to an approaching storm while we yelled at each other on the opposite beach was a SIGN.

I’m going to get that man back for everything he did to me. I’ve decided that Mr. Juicy, as my old coworkers called him (yeah, THAT’S a story), is going to rue the day he ever fired me.

And no, I’m not going to fall in love with him.
Not on your life.

The Bride’s Runaway Billionaire by Pippa Grant
