Falling Under by Lisa Renee Jones is book Three in the "Walker Security" series.   This is the story of  Jacob King and Jewel Carpenter. This is a standalone book and does not need to read in order.

When her father starts getting letters that reference Jewel which appear to put her in danger he goes to the Walker Security Team to get help.  There Royce Walker put the best man he has for the job...Jacob.  Jacob is the strong silent ex-Green Beret who knows the feel of betrayal and works to keep his feelings in check as to not be hurt again.  But something in Jewel is making it hard to keep himself in check along with his growing feelings.  
This was a very exciting hot read that I could not put down!  Loved it!

"Mine" by Stephanie Nicole Norris

 

My Thoughts...


In Book 7 "Mine" was about Phoebe Rose and that wonderful Quentin Davidson. Those protective Rose brothers were quite the men when it came to protecting their baby sister Phoebe.  Will these brothers let a friendship get in their way of this situation?  With Quentin having quite a reputation with the ladies...will he be willing to change his ways for Miss Phoebe?  Well, to see how well this author brings it out to the reader you will have to pick up "Mine" to find out and see if Phoebe and Quentin will finally get this situation all worked out to find their HEA.

Snow Falling
Snow Falling - Jane Gloriana Villanueva

I love Jane the Virgin, so when I found out that the book Jane was writing in the show was being turned into a real book, I knew I had to read it. Since it was meant to be a retelling of Jane's relationship with Michael with a happily ever after, I knew it would follow the general plot of the show, but set in Miami in the early 1900s with changes to match that setting. But it kept some elements from the show that I did not expect that detracted from the story.

 

The Jane the Virgin show had a wonderful narrator who added humor and suspense to the story. However, this was an element that only works well in the show. The book had a narrator who interrupted the flow of the story and felt like an awkward addition to the romance story that I found it hard to believe Jane would actually include. It just didn't mesh well with the story.

 

The plot of the story is also very rushed. Although the book trimmed down extraneous plots from the show, it still had to fit multiple seasons of plot into a relatively short book. Rake's sudden and intense interest in Josephine had me wondering why he wanted her so badly. There wasn't much time for relationship develop between all the characters like there was in the show, which was one of the reasons why the show worked so well.

 

The plot changes to make the setting work also didn't work well. Instead of being accidentally artificially inseminated like Jane was on the show, Josephine became pregnant after a drunken one night stand she had cheating on her fiance because she thought he was cheating on her. This just made her look bad because she had total trust in him one moment and then saw him hugging a woman (who was his partner) and suddenly was convinced he was cheating without even confronting him. And then Rake came along and was creepy and kept pushing her boundaries every time she said no to him until he got her drunk and then got her to sleep with him. So Josephine looked bad with her complete and sudden lack of trust in her fiance. And Rake looked bad with his continuous pushiness, inability to let her say no to him about anything, and taking advantage of her when she's feeling bad and using it to get her drunk and hit on her. Not a great love triangle.

 

If I didn't have the Jane the Virgin background to enjoy comparing the book's plot to, I don't think the book would have worked for me at all. The narrator didn't fit the story well, the plot was rushed, and the relationships weren't well-developed. I really just liked seeing how the characters and plot points were changed to match up to the new setting. I don't think I'd recommend this for anyone who hasn't watched Jane the Virgin. And even for people who have watched it, I don't know how many this would work for.

Falling for Her Brother’s Best Friend By Noelle Adams Free!
Falling for her Brother's Best Friend - Noelle Adams

After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she’s fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She’s going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men.

And that includes her brother’s best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown.

She doesn’t want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he’s not a nice guy anymore. He’s made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he’s looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn’t even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it’s been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend’s little sister.

Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn’t want Noah.

At all.

Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they're all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.

Falling for the Highlander by Lynsay Sands $1.99
Falling for the Highlander - Lynsay Sands

Lady Murine Carmichael has known her share of bad luck. But when her debt-ridden half brother tries to sell her off in exchange for a few Scottish horses, it’s the final straw. If keeping her freedom means escaping through harsh countryside alone, so be it. She has barely begun her journey when she lands an unlikely escort—the brawny Highlander who just refused to buy her virtue.

 

Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvries’ shameful offer, but Murine tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to protect her—with his life and his heart—if she’ll only let him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love.
