Review Gibson is a rock star with a reputation, it started before he and the band became famous and has followed him into adult hood. Chloe knew him slightly way back, enough to see how he earned said reputation. Though she feels she missed a chance back then she has no intention of becoming another notch to him. Life has been hard for her, a long term relationship has left her with little trust in men. A wrong number phone call hours after beginning a new life gradually sparks something inside her.

Gibson is a rock star with a reputation, it started before he and the band became famous and has followed him into adult hood. Chloe knew him slightly way back, enough to see how he earned said reputation. Though she feels she missed a chance back then she has no intention of becoming another notch to him. Life has been hard for her, a long term relationship has left her with little trust in men. A wrong number phone call hours after beginning a new life gradually sparks something inside her.
Lots of angst and misconceptions make for a bit of a roller coaster of highs and lows for this couple, it is intense and sometimes raw with emotion. Frustration for Gibson in trying to do right by Chloe but at the same time his need for her is overwhelming. For Chloe it is the fear of trusting again, the feeling of not being good enough and of just being someone Gibson wants only until he gets what he wants from all women then him dropping her like all the others.
This is a fast paced read with a good flow throughout, the emotions go through a full range right along with these two characters. Just the sort of read I love, I tend to get lost in the story and suck it all in, I get a lump in my throat when the characters are upset and I find myself clenching my fist when things are tense.
Only draw back is that this isn't a stand alone book it continues into book 2, a bit like KL Shandwick Ready For Flynn Series so you need to be prepared to commit to that before you read. Do I feel its worth doing that? YES I do without hesitation, I enjoyed the other series and this first one in this series doesn't disappoint in any way.

great story, great characters
His Secret Son (The Westmoreland Legacy) - Brenda Jackson

Laramie -Coop- Cooper was a Navy Seal . He had requested to cancel his holiday leave but his CO had denied it. Coop had been thought dead as he had been held prisoner for eleven months in a guerilla hell hole in Syria. His captors did everything they could to make Coop think every day was his last. The one thing that had kept Coop sane was the face of the woman he had met just weeks before the mission that had went so wrong- Bristol Locket. It had been a three day holiday affair. Bristol was an artist from NY who had been going to school in France. Bristol always felt a sense of accomplishment when she saw one of her paintings on display. Bristol had left France after graduation and came back to NYC. Bristol had met her manager -Margie- and she had said Bristol would be able to stop work soon and just paint. Eight months later Margie had sold one of Bristol's painting and that was the start.  Bristol had a two year old son -Laramie- by Coop she had tried to get a hold of him but then was told he was dead. Bristol was having her first show and Coop had been sent to NYC on a short assignment and Coop had seen the name Bristol at an art gallery and his bristol had been an artist from NYC so so Coop went in he was leaving but then he heard her laugh and he had remembered that after all this time. When Bristol turned and saw it was Coop she fainted but Coop caught her. Margie told the manager of the gallery that was Bristol’s husband. Coop talked to Bristol and learned of his son and wanted to see him immediately even though the boy would be asleep. Bristol remembered her father’s rush to meet her once he found out she had existed. The babysitter told Coop she knew who he was as his son looked just like him.

I loved this book. It had just enough of everything: passion, heartbreak, romance, drama, a man determined to have his family, captivity, and a whole lot more. I loved that Coop never questioned Bristol about his son and wanted to be with him and Bristol no matter what. I loved how the flashback showed Bristol and Coop meeting and told of their affair. I loved how Bristol tried to do the right thing and get a hold of Coop just to let him know. I loved that this wasn’t just a lust thing. I loved Coop and Bristol together then adding Laramie is just great. I loved the plot and the pace was great. I loved the characters and everything about this book and I highly recommend.

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.

Wild Horses and a Legacy of Evil by Sharon Buchbinder @sbuchbinder
Legacy of Evil - Sharon Buchbinder

Legacy of Evil by Sharon Buchbinder is the second book of the Hotel LaBelle series.

Both books will stand alone.

 

Legacy of Evil (Hotel LaBelle, # 2)

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

Legacy of Evil is Book II, but it can stand alone.

 

Emma Horserider is an ex marine, and her name is so appropriate because of her bond with animals, especially the wild horses she loves so much. She has a telepathic connection to them. She is a dog and horse whisperer.

 

The Native American mysticism crosses boundaries with the military and a bike riding hunk who goes by the name of Brandon Winchester.

 

Terrorism…enter Homeland Security in the form of Brandon Winchester. Emma’s brother, Bert Blackfeather, is his boss and sends him to help her, after a herd of wild horses is attacked and she almost loses her life. Brandon is a remote viewer in the Anomaly Defense Division, think of the old CIA Paranormal experiments. He also has a telepathic connection to his cat, Gaucho.

 

Sparks fly. I really enjoy the fun and flirty dialogue between them.

Dear God, how she loved an inked up wild man on a bike.

The wild cast of characters quickly won over my heart. I laughed with them, feared for them, and hoped they would make it through the danger okay. I love the warrior women. Strong female characters appeal to me and Sharon Buchbinder gives us some doozies. The supporting cast is just as interesting.

“You’re a Twerp whisperer Steph. Thanks for defusing the little hand grenade.”

I love her outrageous cousin, Stephanie. I wonder…will she have a story of her own? What do you say Sharon?

 

When it becomes too dangerous for her to stay home, she moves, temporarily, to Hotel LaBelle. To get the full story on Lucius Stewart, Tallulah Thompson and her pug, Franny you will want to read The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle.

 

Like fighting like, the upcoming battle hits close to home for both of them and Bronco’s past will come full circle.

 

Full of so much goodness, so many of the things I love, danger, suspense, humor and sadness, lives lost and lives saved.

 

The seriousness of the story still leaves time for humorous writing that keeps the pace flowing smoothly. Legacy of Evil is wrapped up in a happy ever after ending, yet left the story open for more…and I want it.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Legacy of Evil by Sharon Buchbinder.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 4 Stars

His Code Name Is Atcho, a Cuban-born West Point graduate. He is the only covert operative on earth to be trusted by both the President of the United States and the Premier of the Soviet Union. A chance meeting of Rasputin, a mysterious monk with the daughters of the last Czar deep in the forests of Russia sets in motion cataclysmic events that surface 70 years later. Atcho finds himself battling a mysterious religious sect, the KGB, the Soviet military, and the Communist Party to save the National Power that had kept him imprisoned for more than 19 years – and he must do it without help or assistance from US intelligence resources.
