Until You Loved Me: A Novel (Silver Spri... Until You Loved Me: A Novel (Silver Springs) - Brenda Novak

Let's start with....I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!  I loved it that much!

Ellie Fisher is a scientist who spends most of her time at her job where she is trying to find a cure for diabetes.  After Ellie catches her fiance and fellow co-worker, Don, with his best friend, Leo, in their bed, Ellie's life is shattered.  Ellie's best friend, Amy convinces her to come out to the trendy bar Envy in Miami to forget about her problems.  Ellie, who never goes out to clubs, is debating leaving when a guy buys her a drink.  When the guy tries to buy her another one and she rejects it, he decides to come out of his hidden place and talk to her...she has really intrigued him.

Hudson King, starting QB for the LA Devils, isn't used to women NOT throwing themselves at him and he wants to know this woman better.  Hard to believe but she really doesn't know him!  The two of them decide to leave the bar and walk along with water.  Hudson is really enjoying his time with Ellie and quickly they end up at his hotel.  Of course this wonderful night ends up in an unplanned pregnancy.  Too bad Ellie only knows Hudson's first name.

While at a Super Bowl party with co-workers, Ellie sees Hudson's face on the TV and that's where the fun begins.  Ellie realizes she needs to contact Hudson to let him know about the pregnancy but she doesn't get quite the reception she was expecting.  Since Hudson was an orphan he has been very careful not to have any unplanned pregnancies but quickly realizes that he wants to be in this child's life and he will do whatever he can to convince Ellie of that.

Ellie soon finds herself relocating to Silver Springs, California and moving in with Hudson.  Of course sparks are flying but Hudson cannot give Ellie the one thing she wants....commitment.  Over the course of her pregnancy these two begin to grow closer.  It was so fun watching these two go from a one-night stand to their happy ending.  The mystery behind Hudson's abandonment is revealed and it was a doozy!  Never saw that one coming!

Overall this story was awesome!  Ellie is such a sweet, smart female and I could really relate to her.  Hudson had so many walls up because of his past is was fun watching Ellie slowly knock them down.  This story kept me so entertained I just couldn't put it down.  Great job Brenda Novak!

The First Boy I Loved by Cheryl Reavis $1.99
The First Boy I Loved - Cheryl Reavis

Vietnam took her first love away from her.

Now it may take her next love, too.

After her husband dies, Gillian Warner realizes how many sorrows she carries inside her, including unresolved grief over her first love, who died in Vietnam decades earlier. Haunted by his death in combat and a tangled web of guilty secrets, she books a guided trip to the battle site.

The tours are led by cynical Vietnam War vet A.J. Donegan, who makes his living taking naïve Americans on what he calls Guilt Trips, Inc. If they're looking for peace of mind, they can forget it.

A prickly attraction sparks between Gillian and Donegan, with neither able to let go of the past without the other's provocative challenge. In a test of willpower and desire, they'll have to share much more than a journey to a place and a memory; they'll have to travel deep inside the walls they've built around their hearts.

Is that a gun in his pocket or…?   Jamie Fields can hardly refuse a free vacation. Jobless and broke, the struggling single gal is in need of serious stress relief. Sure, the set up is suspicious—no one gives away a trip to exotic Cuba—complete with 50,000 dollars cash—just for delivering a package. But once Jamie’s enjoying sunny beach days and exhilarating tropical nights, she’s too happy to care. Especially when she finds herself hotly pursued by a sexy stranger… The McCoy empire is under siege, and Sam Hayes has been tapped to take care of the culprit. Sam knows better than to get involved with his target, but there’s something about Jamie that keeps him from simply finishing the job and moving on. Maybe the hard-bodied hitman just can’t wrap his mind around the fact that the first woman to set his soul on fire is a common criminal. The only thing Sam can do is keep her close. An easy enough task—if Sam doesn’t do something stupid. Like fall in love with the bombshell he was sent to kill….

As he caught his caving breath, he scanned the street and spotted a bargain clothing store a few shops down. He rushed in, grabbed a pair of jeans off a shelf, a hoodie from a rack, and went straight to a dressing room. Once he transferred his wallet and cigarettes into his pockets, and removed the reading glasses, he stepped out of the dressing room like a new man. “Ah, just what I need.” With calm only a man used to a life of chaos could have, he strolled over to a row of baseball caps and fitted the nearest one onto his head. The cashier stared at him with wide, unbelieving eyes, before her nervous gaze shifted to the street. Two hospital guards and a few cops stood outside hitting up pedestrians for information. Sam smiled at the girl. She looked barely of age, probably only in the work force for a few months. He’d bet a grand she was about to pee behind that counter. He lifted his hands to reassure he didn’t have a weapon. “You have nothing to fear from me.” With one hand still raised, he reached into his pocket with the other, pulled out a few bills and gently placed them onto the counter. “This is more than enough for the clothes, and a little extra for you.” She nodded despite the shimmer of tears in her eyes. “I won’t say anything. Just promise you won’t hurt me.” Sam smiled again, positive she wouldn’t alert the cops. “I promise, and I appreciate your cooperation. It’s not what you think.” He knew she didn’t believe him. “Whatever you say, mister.” Sam headed toward the front door. “You—you’re gonna go out there? There’s cops everywhere,” the girl said, her eyes wide with surprise, her mouth curved up in a do it, I dare you grin. Sam couldn’t help a low chuckle. She may be scared, but like a typical kid, she was thrilled by the chase. He headed for the door again, but paused to say over his shoulder, “If I were you, I’d treat myself to a night out with that money. It’s Saturday, the best day of the week.” The cashier blushed and pocketed all of the money. “We don’t have cameras in here. Stuff goes missing all the time.” She shrugged, obviously more comfortable now that he was leaving, and maybe because she had made a few bucks for keeping her mouth shut. She grinned. “Have a good day, sir, and good luck.” Sam winked and walked out of the store, right in front of the men in uniform. He knew he wouldn’t be recognized with a new outfit and a baseball cap. He plastered an expression of concern on his face. “What’s going on?” He stood next to one of the officers, withdrew a cigarette and his lighter from the case. As he lit the end and took a long drag, one of the cops turned to face him. The officer gave Sam a good once-over and nodded. “We’re looking for a man who just escaped from the hospital.” “You mean a mental patient?” The cop shook his head. “No. All we know at this time is that he was wearing grey slacks with a white button-up shirt, glasses, and he looked to be of mixed descent. Average height and build.” The cop glanced at him again from shoes to baseball cap. Sam hid his amusement as he sucked in another deep drag of his cigarette. Mixed descent could mean anyone this day and age. He was often confused as being Asian or Native American, or a mixture of the two, and he enjoyed keeping people guessing his true African-Irish origin. “I see.” Another officer joined them. Sam recognized him as one of the guys connected to the McCoys. They often called upon him for Intel: when patrol would be going by, or to make tickets and profiles disappear, or to dig up background on a person. He was also among the badges at Colton’s funeral. As they made eye contact, Sam kept his expression passive. “Well, I hope you find him. We don’t need criminals running around these streets.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shady Grace makes Northern Ontario her home, where the bush is so thick you can't see two feet past the tree line. Perhaps the mystery of the woods was what initially sparked her need to write. She adores strong alpha males who fall for fiery, independent women, in settings with humorous dialogue and action-filled plots. Shady believes love and sex should be exciting and unforgettable. Being able to write about it is better than cheesecake. Shady Grace is the new pen name of multi-published erotic author BL Bonita, who earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly for Dark Sun Rising.

DIdn't Hold My Interest
The Hitman Who Loved Me - Shady Grace

Jamie Fields was given the opportunity of a free vacation. This was an opportunity she couldn’t refuse considering she was broke and jobless.

This book had a good premise. Unfortunately I really couldn’t get into it. The characters and storyline just didn’t hold my interest.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
