Audiobook Review for Wild Boys After Dark: Cooper by Melissa Foster

 

Wild Boys After Dark: Cooper

Wild Billionaires After Dark, Book 4

By: Melissa Foster

Narrated by: Paul Woodson

Series: Wild Boys After Dark, Book 4

Length: 3 hrs and 41 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release date: 08-22-16

Language: English

Publisher: Melissa Foster


Publisher's Summary

Four years ago at a film festival, Cici Fine met Cooper Wild, a man who turned her world upside down in the span of one deliciously perfect week. He was everything she'd ever dreamed of: sinfully sexy, intelligent, and incredibly loving. When the festival ended, they returned to their own hometowns with promises of forever. But Cooper disappeared, and Cici was left to raise the daughter he never knew about alone.

Cooper is finally thinking straight after years of being lost in grief from the tragedy that killed his father and left his mother blind. Now he's on a mission to find the woman he left behind - the only woman he's ever loved.

But Cici Fine is no longer a naive young girl. She's a savvy businesswoman with big responsibilities, on the cusp of a life-changing move. When fate brings the two together, they'll put the old adage to the test and find out if love really can conquer all.

©2015 Melissa Foster (P)2016 Melissa Foster

My Thoughts…

Audiobook Review…Oh my.. these Wild Boys are amazing.    Paul Woodson has the perfect voice to bring Cooper Wild to life.   As I listened to Paul’s voice I could feel the love, the respect, and the fear at losing the love of his life that Cooper has.   While the story is Melissa Foster’s to share listening to the story instead of reading it brought it to life for me.   Everything about the story, the narrator, and the characters is perfect.   Whether you are familiar with the story and characters or new to them I highly recommend listening to Cooper Wild’s story.  


eBook Review…
A love lost…or almost. Cooper met his soul mate then his family had a catastrophe happen and he lost her. The sad part, Cici didn’t even know what made him leave her. This is a story of hope and lost love. Cooper comes back to where he met Cici and does find her again. I liked that Cici did not just forgive and forget. He has to work to get her to even spend time with her.

Within this book is also a HUGE secret. I am not sure most men would handle the secret as Cooper did. When the secret came to light he took it in stride. He did not let it disrupt anyone’s lives and proved his love by rolling with what was happening.

In true Melissa Foster style, she brought the reader a new family of hot sexy men. These men are a little hotter and a little sexier than others she has written about. The storyline is more graphic than other books in her series. I am definitely in lust with these men.


Check out this entire series. There are characters that reappear from the Braden’s series but it is not required to have read them to enjoy these books. Each book is its own story. 

 

Cover Reveal for See Me After Class by Meghan Quinn

 

SEE ME AFTER CLASS COVER REVEAL!!

The Setup by Meghan Quinn

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Releasing: November 12, 2020

"Did you have relations with my brother . . ."

Good question. 

I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met who just so happens to be my new friend’s brother. 

My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago.

But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office.

Coerced into participating in the teacher's badminton league.

And instigated into passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education and decorum while losing my underwear at the same time.

Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job. 

SEE ME AFTER CLASS RELEASES NOVEMBER 12TH!

Now Available!! The Witch Hunter by Max Seeck

 

The Witch Hunter (Jessica Niemi #1)  by  Max Seeck 

 publication: October 27th 2020 by Berkley


A shocking murder in an affluent Helsinki suburb has ties to the occult in this thrilling US debut from Finnish author Max Seeck.


A bestselling author’s wife has been found dead in a gorgeous black evening gown, sitting at the head of a formally set dinner table. Her most chilling feature—her face is frozen in a ghastly smile.

At first it seems as though a deranged psychopath is reenacting the gruesome murders from The Witch Hunter, the bestseller written by the victim’s husband. But investigator Jessica Niemi soon realizes she’s not looking for a single killer but rather for dozens of believers in a sinister form of witchcraft.

They know her every move and are always one step ahead. As the bodies start piling up, Jessica knows they won’t stop until they get what they want. And when her dark past comes to light, Jessica finds herself battling her own demons while desperately trying to catch a coven of killers before they claim their next victim.

Review for It's Always Been You by A.M. Williams

 

 

  Falling in love for Zeke and Delaney could mean risking their friendship. But what’s the worst that can happen when these two best friends share a tiny honeymoon suite? Readers will fall in love with this friends to lovers romance from A.M. Williams. The Holiday Springs Resort series is here and IT’S ALWAYS BEEN YOU is now live!

 

  Two best friends and one tiny honeymoon suite...what's the worst that could happen? When my ex decided to leave me just three weeks before our wedding, I did the only thing a girl could do. I grabbed my best friend and headed for the mountains to celebrate my newfound freedom and get over my broken heart while taking full advantage of all of the pre-paid amenities that should have happened on my honeymoon. There's just one problem: Holiday Springs Resort is booked solid and I may have forgotten to change our reservations. Now Zeke and I are forced to share a bed, but am I ready to share my heart again so soon? Delaney always seemed to be the right girl at the wrong time. With her ex-fiance out of the picture, it's up to me to mend her broken heart. There's just one problem: I've been in love with her since the day we met. With all the romance in the air, it's hard to fight back the tension between us. What was supposed to be a fun-filled rebound trip between friends suddenly heats up to so much more. Falling in love could mean risking our friendship. Are we both willing to take that leap? One thing is for sure - this trip changes everything. If you like snowy locales, sizzling romance, and a scene with a hot tub, then you'll love It's Always Been You, the first book in a new series. Escape to the romantic paradise of Holiday Springs and warm up with your next happily ever after.

My Thoughts…

The start of a new series of standalone books is exciting.   Holiday Springs Resort starts with It’s Always Been You by A.M. Williams.   A jilted bride decides to go on her honeymoon with her best friend, who happens to be a guy.  I could guess what direction the story would take and was excited to see how Delaney would find her new happiness and if Zeke could be the right guy for her. 

I could not put the book down.   I was invested in Zeke and Delaney learning that they would be perfect together.   A.M Williams did a great job of telling their story and keeping it fun, light, and beautiful.   She did not make it easy for them to get together, she made it real.    They had fears of losing their friendship, fear that the other may not feel the same as they did, but above all they had love and respect.   

I am so excited for more books being set at the gorgeous Holiday Springs Resort.

Excerpt

Copyright @ A.M. Williams 2020

We both moaned when my center came in contact with his erection. Even through two layers of clothing, it was a heady feeling. I undulated my hips on top of him as we continued to make out, slowing working us both into a frenzy. Zeke ripped his mouth away from mine. “We need to go inside.” I nodded even though I wasn’t sure what he was saying. I was too focused on pulling his lips back to mine. “Delaney,” he said between kisses. “Let’s go in.” He gently pushed me away and stood. I pouted as I stood too. He quickly got out and wrapped his towel around his hips before helping me out and hangin me my towel. I quickly dried off and walked inside, the head of the cabin beckoning to me. Once inside, I didn’t waste any time dropping my towel and stripping out of my bathing suit, leaving me naked. I turned to face Zeke and watched as he drew the curtains. I got a great view of his face when he turned around and realized I was already naked. “Hot damn,” he muttered and tossed his own towel to the side. His finger immediately starting working the laces of his bathing suit while his gaze raked over my body. I used the opportunity to look at him as well. My heart ssped up at the thought of everything coming together right now. I’d wanted this for so long and now that it was happening, it was surreal, and I wanted to remember every part of it. Every kiss. Every caress. Every whispered word. I wanted them all. Zeke’s bathing suit dropped, and my gaze immediately zeroed in on his dick, which was pointing toward the ceiling. I whimpered as I looked at it. Moisture was beading on the tip, and it looked like the perfect dick. Especially since it was attached to the perfect man. A few minutes later, we were parked outside the cabin, and Zeke had our bags in hand while I swiped the keycard for the room. It took several tries to get the lock to open, something that annoyed me to no end. After discovering everything with the reservation, the door not working was just one more thing to add to the list of why I was upset with my life. Once the door was open, I stepped to the side and allowed Zeke to go in first before flicking the light switch by the door and letting the door fall shut behind me. I turned toward the main part of the cabin and drew up short when I noticed Zeke standing frozen with the bags still in his hands. “What’s wrong?” I asked, walking closer. “Uhh…” Zeke said, shifting his weight from side to side. “Is there supposed to be only one bed?” I cringed. I didn’t tell him what happened with the reservation while we were in the car. He deserved to know that I hadn’t changed it like I told him I would. “Well…I didn’t realize until I went to check in that I forgot to call them to let them know that the reservation needed to be changed. I couldn’t change it today because it was too late.” Silence greeted my words, and I worried my bottom lip and dropped my gaze to the floor. “I’m really sorry,” she said when Zeke continued to say nothing. “I thought I’d called, and I didn’t. I can’t believe that I forgot to do that simple thing. Don’t even get me started on the excursions we have booked because—” I jumped when Zeke pressed a finger to my chin and tilted my head up. He was grinning. “Don’t worry about it. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to sleep in the same bed as the Delaney Carrigan.” My face heated. “Oh, uh…” “Come on!” Zeke said, pulling me into a hug. “It’ll be fine. Nothing to worry your pretty little head about.” He released me and turned back to pick the bags up and stepped further into the room. With him out of the way, I could see what gave him pause. It wasn’t just the single king-size bed in the room. It was the rose petals that were littered all over the bedcovers and on the floor. They were everywhere. As I stepped closer to the bed, I cringed as I realized they were even in the shape of a heart with a small card in the center. Though I knew I shouldn’t, I picked it up. It read “Congratulations on your marriage!” I stared at it for several long moments, my mind flashing back to when Josh told me he couldn’t marry me. “Whatcha got in your hand?” Zeke asked. Before I could crumple the card, Zeke plucked it from my fingers. I watched as his expression darkened. “Fuck him.” He ripped the card in half, then ripped it again before tossing the pieces in the air. I watched them flutter toward the floor. “You’re better off without that douche-canoe. Seriously. What guy breaks up with the supposed love of his life only days before their wedding? Asswads, that’s who. Don’t waste another minute worried about him.” I nodded. What could I say to that? It wasn’t anything I didn’t already know and that Zeke and my family hadn’t already said. Josh was an asshole of the first order for what he did to me. It didn’t make it hurt any less, though. “Right, let’s get unpacked and look over what we’ve got going on this week. Maybe we can add some things to do instead of what we’ve got on there. What do you say?” I nodded and felt myself relax. “Sounds good.” Zeke turned and grabbed his bag, unzipping it while I stood there, frozen. While he’d made me feel better about the rose petals and the asshole ex-fiancĂ©, we hadn’t addressed the elephant in the room: the single bed. Yeah, Zeke joked that he’d always wanted to sleep in the same bed as me, but I knew he said that to make me feel better. How were we going to make this work?

Review for Cold as Ice (Lucy Kincaid #17) by Allison Brennan

 

Cold as Ice (Lucy Kincaid #17)  by  Allison Brennan 

 

 


In New York Times bestseller Allison Brennan’s Cold as Ice, FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid must get into the head of a psychopath to save her family, and herself

Two years ago, FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid put psychopath Elise Hansen Hunt in juvenile detention for her role in an organized crime syndicate. Now eighteen, Elise has been released with a clean slate, and plans to take her revenge by making Lucy’s life hell. The plot begins with Lucy’s husband Sean Rogan, who has been arrested for a murder he most certainly did not commit.

Lucy is determined to prove Sean’s innocence, but is warned off the case by her boss. As she calls in reinforcements, she learns that Sean’s brother Kane is missing in Mexico, her partner Nate Dunning has been arrested for possession of cocaine, and her friend Brad Donnelly has been kidnapped outside DEA headquarters. Lucy realizes that Elise doesn’t have the resources or patience to execute such a devious plan. Did Elise’s father orchestrate everything from prison? Or is there someone even more calculating seeking revenge on Lucy by hurting the people she loves?

One thing is certain: if Lucy doesn’t find the answers fast, Sean will die. 

 

My Thoughts…

 

Oh boy, I am a huge Allison Brennan fan and even bigger Lucy Kincaid fan.   This book is part of a series but stands entirely alone.   Cold as Ice is a complex story.   There are a lot of characters with intertwining storylines, yet it was easy to follow and intriguing to read.   I knew that Lucy would be able to prove Sean, her husband, innocent but I also knew it would not be easy.  I loved seeing Lucy and Sean’s friends come to support them even though they knew that by doing so it would be putting them in dangers path. 

 

Cold as Ice is a thriller of a book that brought back many characters from Allison Kincaid’s past books.  The suspense kept me holding my breathe until I reached the end.   I had so much hope in how the story would turn out and was not disappointed in the twists and turns the story took.   I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading.

Audiobook Review for Blue Bloods Final Destiny by Stacy Eaton

 

Blue Bloods Final Destiny

My Blood Runs Blue, Book 5

By: Stacy Eaton

Narrated by: Alex Black

Length: 6 hrs and 2 mins

Release date: 08-20-20

 



Publisher's Summary

Julian Hutchinson walked away from it all: his job, his friends, and her. As Julian drives out west, he randomly stops at a roadside tavern and runs into some people from his past.

Lyssa Lakin helps her father around the tavern as she raises her 15-year-old daughter, Lorna. When Julian walks into the bar, Lyssa’s past crush on him hits full force, but even she can tell that he is far from ready to be involved with anyone.

As Julian and Lyssa grow their friendship, their past romance is rekindled. When Julian’s past comes back to haunt him and an old enemy shows up in town, Julian knows a showdown is imminent.

Will Julian be able to deal with his past and his enemy without destroying the new life he has created?

The gang is back for one final book where lines are drawn and quickly crossed, and Julian and Kristin will have to work together one last time to save people that they care about.

 

My Thoughts…

This is the final book in the My Blood Runs Blue series.   I have listened to all 5 books and loved each one of them.    The characters have become important to me and I have become invested in their stories.   Stacy Eaton wrote this final book to give Julian the story he needed and to tie up the story perfectly.  

Julian has needed to find himself for a little while now and in Blue Blood Final Destiny he manages to find himself, save Kristin, and reconnect with some of his history.   I enjoyed learning more about Julian, seeing him come to terms with some of his past, and figure out what would make him happy in the present and the future.  

While I am sad this series is over, I am thrilled that I got listen to Alex Black’s voice read me Stacy Eaton’s words.

Review for Nowhere Near Goodbye by Barbara Conrey

 

Nowhere Near Goodbye by  Barbara Conrey 

Kindle Edition, 251 pages

Published August 4th 2020 by Red Adept Publishing, LLC

 


A mother’s love vs. a doctor’s oath.


Oncologist Emma Blake has dedicated her life to finding a cure for a rare brain cancer. Twenty-five years ago, Emma’s childhood friend Kate died of glioblastoma, and Emma vowed to annihilate the deadly disease. Now, Kate’s father, Ned, is pushing her to work harder to fulfill that promise.

When Emma discovers she’s pregnant, she’s torn between the needs of her family and the demands of her work. While Ned pressures her to do the unthinkable, her husband, Tim, decorates the nursery. Unwilling to abandon her research, Emma attempts to keep both sides of her life in balance.

Emma knows she needs to reconcile her past with her present and walk the fine line between mother and physician. But Ned has a secret, and when Emma discovers what he’s been hiding, the foundation of her world cracks.

Nowhere Near Goodbye is a story of family, failure, and second chances

 

My Thoughts…  

What is more important?  Your family or your career?    For Emma Blake that is a very tough decision to make.   For the mom’s I know, there is no doubt that your family would come first.   I could understand her struggles and I felt bad for all that she was missing in her life while spending all her time working.   Her work is important.   She is doing trials to cure a disease that kills so many people.   I never thought that she should give up her work, but I feel like there should be a good balance between work and family.  

 Nowhere Near Goodbye is a tough story.    The story itself is heartbreaking and not everyone will enjoy reading it.   There is the difficult topics of childhood cancer, unwanted pregnancy, and divorce.    Barbara Conrey had a tough story to tell and did it wonderfully.     Emma is not a character that the reader will want to like but they will feel for her and the decisions she makes.

Paperback Release for The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

This book had me talking to anyone who would listen.   I loved the story, the setting, and everything else.   Now I can share that it is available in paperback.   Go get your own copy!   Simone St. James is wonderfully talented.


 The Sun Down Motel by  Simone St. James 

publication: February 18th 2020 by Berkley
The secrets lurking in a rundown roadside motel ensnare a young woman, just as they did her aunt thirty-five years before, in this new atmospheric suspense novel from the national bestselling and award-winning author of The Broken Girls.

Upstate NY, 1982. Every small town like Fell, New York, has a place like the Sun Down Motel. Some customers are from out of town, passing through on their way to someplace better. Some are locals, trying to hide their secrets. Viv Delaney works as the night clerk to pay for her move to New York City. But something isn't right at the Sun Down, and before long she's determined to uncover all of the secrets hidden…

My Thoughts…
It is only January of 2020 but this will certainly be in my list of top books of the year.    I could not get enough of The Sun Down Motel.    With each page, each character I met, each story that came together, I was pulled more and more into the story.   The ghosts and the visitors to The Sun Down Motel were all intriguing and kept me turning page after page.   I couldn’t wait to see how Simone St. James would pull the storylines together at the end of the book.

The dual timelines were written perfectly.   They told their own stories while overlapping just enough to not lose the reader's attention.    I enjoyed how the characters were portrayed in 1982 and those that were still around in the present were kept similar.   They kept their quirks, kept their attitudes, but showed how they grew up in the time that was between.   The storylines were easy to follow, quick to read, and had twists and turns that kept me guessing at what would happen next.   

The Sun Down Motel is a psychological thriller with a tad of paranormal sprinkled throughout the story.    The spooky setting, the creepy customers, and the interesting people of Fells all made this book a must-read.
