Blog Tour w/Review - Only For You
 
 

 

Love only works when your heart is in the right place. 
Hers could be right next door…
 
 
ONLY FOR YOU
Sugar Lake #2
Melissa Foster
Releasing Dec 5, 2017
Montlake

 
Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.
 
Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.
 
But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…
 
**ONLY FOR YOU is published by Montlake (an Amazon imprint) and won’t be available on other ebook retailers, but you can download a FREE ereader app to read it HERE, or order the paperback.
 
 
 
She wrapped her hand around his long fingers, and his eyes heated, never wavering from hers.

She’d never met a man so intense. Her nerves were on fire as she led him toward the table where some of her family members were talking. Awareness of the significance of her decision, of the signals she was sending, slammed into her, and she slowed to catch her breath. Was she ready for this?

He put a finger beneath her chin and lifted, as he’d done at his front door, gazing thoughtfully down at her. “Would you rather I leave?”

She shook her head. “No. I’m just . . . I’m good.” And she was. She’d needed that pause to acknowledge and accept what she was feeling. She was nervous, but she wanted this. She wanted him. Her smile came genuinely, and earned her one in return. “Come on.”
She became more nervous as they approached the table. Willow was practically sitting in
Zane’s lap as they mooned over each other. Piper and Talia were scoping out some guy across the room, and Ben was in a heated discussion with Aurelia. She shouldn’t be nervous. This was her normal.

Except normal didn’t usually include holding hands with a man she wanted to strip naked and devour.
 
“Well, well, well. If it isn’t the naked neighbor.” Mischief danced in Piper’s eyes as she pushed to her feet and strutted around the table in her skinny jeans and slinky little blouse. She set her hands on her hips, running an assessing eye over Bodhi.

His jaw clenched.

“Bodhi, this is my sister Piper. She works in construction and is around guys all day, which means she has absolutely no filter. Please take her with a grain of salt.”

He flashed a cocky grin. “For the record, I had a towel on.”

“For the record,” Piper said, “she wished you didn’t.”
 
 
 
 
 
Only for You (Sugar Lake #2)Only for You by Melissa Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Sugar Lake series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading this great series in order.


Bridgette has a lot on her plate. Being a single mom is not east. She has had drama in her past, and she is trying not to make more for her son to have in the future. If only she could resist her neighbor!


Bodhi has no intention of giving in to temptation. Just because he is attracted to the sexy Bridgette, does not mean he has to act on it. He knows he cannot offer her a future, so what can you do?


This book was full of heat and fun right from the start. I loved that the hero could be more than what he limited himself to be. This was a great example that not all books have to reach for an HEA to give us one. I loved that these characters felt very real and the situations easy to relate to. This series is just so good!

Under Pressure Book Review
Under Pressure - Lori Foster

Okay, so I usually like this author. I really enjoyed reading her MMA series. But this was pretty awful, especially the audiobook. Not much happened. It was very much a slow build until maybe the last 50 pages or so. And even the climax of the story wasn't very exciting. There are more in this series but I don't plan to read it. Definitely disappointing for a Lori Foster book.

Very excited for these December releases. Almost all of these books are by authors I have read and enjoyed their work. Considering it is December, I think I will be able to get all six books read. The Girl in the Tower is book two in The Winternight Trilogy so, I will need to read The Bear and the Nightingale first.

The House on Foster Hill - mystery
The House on Foster Hill - Jaime Jo Wright

The House on Foster Hill had the makings and potential to be a suck you in mystery that keeps a reader turning pages with its creepy, abandoned house and a present day puzzle that can only be solved by uncovering the secrets of the past.

The story jumps back and forth between Kaine in present day and Ivy in the early 1900s. Both had suffered loss, causing them to question their faith, but while Ivy showed little fear and a strong determination to find justice, Kaine's constant fear and desire to run became a bit tedious. We also have the mystery of whether or not Kaine's husband was murdered, but that part of the story seems to be more filler than anything related to the goings on surrounding Foster Hill house. 

The story starts off well enough with a murdered young woman and a few chilling incidents at the abandoned house, but then the tale slows down and begins to drag - more so in the modern day chapters than those surrounding Ivy, but drag nonetheless. The story does pick up in intensity toward the end, but I found the conclusion to be a bit disappointing. In the end, I found very little in the way of romance and a bit too much going on with the modern day story to keep the reader's focus. Ivy's story was much more interesting than anything going on with Kaine, and I reached a point that I felt like skimming Kaine's chapters just to get back to Ivy's harrowing situation.  Overall, the book's slow pace just made it way too easy to set aside for later and the story line a bit too jumbled to compel to me keep turning the pages. 

The author does show promise and this tale did have potential. With a bit more focus and less wandering, it could've been more than just an okay read.
