Paralegal Zara Remington is in over her head and she doesn’t know it: her friend is in trouble, her job is on the line, her casual affair suddenly wants more, oh and someone may be trying to kill her.  Ryker Jones’ past is coming back to haunt him and the people he cares about.  He will do whatever it takes to keep them safe whether they like it or not.

Danger is lurking closer than Ryker could have imagined.  Can he protect those he loves?

Author Rebecca Zanetti introduces her readers to the Blood Brothers series with Deadly Silence.

Ryker and his blood brothers Heath and Denver grew up in foster care.  They were forced into a dire situation and tried to make the best of it.  They thought that was behind them until a twelve-year-old walks into their Private Investigation offices asking for help.

Zanetti weaves a killer world in Deadly Silence.  I am always in awe of Zanetti’s worldbuilding and complex characters.  I was not disappointed with Deadly Silence.

Zara is a modern woman content with her casual affair with Ryker.  Her conflicted feelings when he tells her he wants more are honest and humorous.  She finds herself in a situation where societal norms tell her she should act one way while her heart and body are screaming something else.  I think we’ve all been in that type of situation a time or two.

Ryker is a dominant alpha male character that make your toes curl.  His interactions with Zara are very exciting.  They always made me smile while reading.  The passion in Deadly Silence ranks a fifteen on a scale from one to ten.  I would definitely walk on the wild side with Ryker.

There are many intersecting plot lines in Deadly Silence.  Zanetti has set her readers up with a seriously enthralling story.  The reader never knows what’s coming next or who’s behind it.  I love that kind of suspense element.  Deadly Silence sets things up for Heath’s story Lethal Lies and I can’t wait to hunt down the Copper Killer with him.

Sensational emotions and high intensity action make Deadly Silence a Must Read!

Jarecki takes the reader on one hell of an adventure in The Highland Duke!  Akira and Geordie are sensual, smart and exhilarating.  The Highland Duke is non-stop action from page one!

Author Amy Jarecki creates suspense with ease in The Highland Duke.  The world she built is easy to imagine.  I could feel the breeze and see the Highlands while reading.  It made me ache to be there. Jarecki forges a magical experience with The Highland Duke.

Akira and Geordie are in the race for their lives in The Highland Duke.  The dramatic tension is high as they flee the redcoats. I love that Akira is a strong woman with a mind of her own.  She is not one to be run over. Geordie is a loyal warrior determined to do right by his clan.  He is not prepared for fiery Akira but is ready for the challenge.   It is so much fun taking this journey with them as they get to know each other and fall madly in love.

Akira and Geordie are a fierce couple! It’s easy to fall in love with them in The Highland Duke.  If you are looking for a thrilling story with a passionate couple then Amy Jarecki’s The Highland Duke is for you.

THE FAMILY MAN by Kelly Eadon

After reading The Wedding Date by Kelly Eadon I just knew I wanted to read more of the Belmont Beach series. The Family Man happened to come to me at the right time when I was unsure what kind of book I wanted to dive into and I have to say I loved The Family Man. It was sweet, funny and heartwarming and I loved seeing this single dad’s perspective on dating and working while trying to raise his little girl.

 

Beth Beverley made some bad business mistakes in the past but she has finally found something that she is good at and it seems that her baked goods are in demand. Baking isn’t the only thing Beth is doing; she is also teaching theater for the kids in the community and sewing, in other words she is a woman of many talents. Beth has been selling her fabulous treats to coffee shop owner, Griffin Hall for some time and crushing on him just as hard but she is about to find out that she isn’t the only woman in his life.

 

Griffin Hall started his coffee shop and left his musical past behind to raise his little girl and give her the stability she needs. He hasn’t dated much but he looks forward to seeing Beth weekly when she delivers her muffins to him. Once Griffin learns that his feelings aren’t one sided he decides to go all in with Beth and get a chance to know her. But he comes with some baggage and while he hasn’t lied to Beth he just hasn’t dished all the dirty details of his past. When the past comes knocking at his door Griffin hopes Beth will understand or will it be too much for them both to handle?

 

Beth and Griffin were the ideal romantic couple, sure they had their differences but I really liked how they just meshed together. Beth was fun and dabbled in a few different things but she was never flighty or boring. I love that Ms. Eadon wrote Griffin as a single father because I have such a soft spot for single parent romances. I understood his struggles in wanting to be a good father and always be there for his daughter yet needing grown up time with Beth. Both characters were well written and really likable.

 

The romance was slow building and really made it seem real and believable from the start. The Family Man had just the right amount of humor and just enough conflict that kept me turning the pages. The love scenes weren’t over the top but were done tastefully and I enjoyed how the story wasn’t focused on them as much. They did show how their new found relationship was progressing and how much Griffin and Beth did care for one another.

 

The Family Man is a witty and adorable read that captured my attention from the beginning. Ms. Eadon’s voice is new and her story telling is flawless. The Family Man has a cast of characters that will make you laugh and fill your heart with plenty of joy. Ms. Eadon is an author to be on the lookout for future books and I for one can’t wait to read the next story in this funny and heartwarming series.

Josie Dawson is new to Dry Creek after her brother found love on the Lucky Penny Ranch she knows she could be next but she is there to do a job. After meeting the charming and sweet Deke Sullivan she can see why all the women in this town want to be with him but she isn’t about to let herself fall for him. When she travels to look at some ranch stock and ends up snowed in with this lady charmer she finds resisting him even more impossible then she thought.

 

Deke Sullivan might have a reputation as a charmer but he is secretly looking for the one. Sadly Deke hasn’t found her yet. He doesn’t ask for much but she has to love animals and understand the ranch life. When Josie walks into his life he feels that maybe she could be the one, but it’s harder than he thought it was going to be to win her heart.

 

When I started the Lucky Penny Ranch series by Carolyn Brown I knew right away I loved Deke and couldn’t wait for his story to unfold. Wicked Cowboy Charm was a sweet romantic read that captivated me right from the beginning but I feel that had a lot to do with me loving him already.

 

I did have a few issues with some of the things that happened while they were snowed in, yes they were funny, but they just seemed a little too much at certain times. As far as the characters went I love the time that Deke took to win Josie over. It was normal paced and he showed her what kind of man he really was.

 

Wicked Cowboy Charm was filled with great dialogue and funny moments that had me remembering why each and every time I run to pick up Ms. Brown’s books. I loved the conflict that Josie was feeling in wondering if she should really give Deke a chance but I can tell you right now she was a very lucky lady to end up with Deke. Wicked Cowboy Charm is the last of the Lucky Penny Ranch but don’t worry readers there will be more cowboys coming from Ms. Brown in the future and for that I can’t wait.
