Loving Evangeline (Silhouette Romantic Suspense Bestselling Author) - Linda Howard

Hall of shame contestant #2

 

Meet Robert. He's just your average genius millionaire superhero playboy philanthropist...ok, that last was a stretch, and I'm sure someone will remember where they heard that before. He has his fingers in many pies, a lot of them government. He's also like those historical Dukes who were always off doing super secret missions to the crown instead of working on the heir and a spare.

 

The head of one of his divisions is selling secrets of the sort that are national security risks. And using the h's marina to rent a boat for the drop offs.

 

Meet Evie. Virgin widow orphaned as a kid, married practically as soon as she graduated, and due to the unfortunate arrival of Aunt Flo on her wedding day, and the really horrible luck of she and her new husband wrecking on their honeymoon, resulting in his dying while she watched... Yeah; the method of keeping her still pristine is a bit much.

 

So Robert the Douche...<g> decides based on some v. sketchy logic that the h is an accomplice. He goes to investigate, pulls strings to put financial pressure on both her and his employee, and seduces her. He succeeds, which messes with his plans a bit because he's formed an attachment. Oh noes! Eventually, she manages to wriggle off his financial hook, then due to some unfortunate timing on his secretary's part, intercepts a fax telling him that they've reached a dead end on the financial pressure.

 

She freezes him out, and leaves. Bad guy goes for a last, desperate drop off, she goes after him, armed, H is also armed, it's a Greek tragedy there in the apprehending of the bad guys.

 

After everyone is arrested, and she's safely back at the dock (and over her initial shock), he 'splains things, then asks her to marry him. Offers her his house. She tells him no and to go away.

 

After prowling around for days and weeks like a caged animal, he finally visits his sister, 'splains to her too whereupon she tells him she'd have dumped him too, and storms off. Her husband 'splains to him the concept that love conquers all.

 

Maybe it does...to a point. I think the guy setting out to destroy her because he "thought" she was selling secrets might be a bit difficult. His seducing her at the same time...ok, he should be glad she didn't shoot HIM. I would have. Oh, I might have aimed for a knee but blood would have been spilled.

 

Considering what he'd been told of her past, he should have been worried to death that she might drive into the river; not freaking out because she saw through his almost psychopathic manipulations.

Finally
Can't Stop Lovin' You - Lynnette Austin

This book is # 3, in the Maverick Junction series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Brawley is moving back to his hometown.  He wants to take back the one who got away.  Only she is about to make a second slip right through his fingers.  Again.  Can the secrets of the past be overcome to find the happiness they deserve?

 

Maggie is finally getting her dreams to come true with this big move to New York.  While it is far from her Texas home, it provides opportunity and customers she needs to get her dress designing firmly off the ground.  What she may pay in the end is a different story.

 

This series is just as sweet as it is sassy.  This book was the one I held my breath for.  Let me tell you, it is absolutely worth it!  Characters like these, are why I read romance.  They have the spark about to ignite, and just need a little flame.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Happy Reading :) 


 

 

 

In the Southern town of Lafayette Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and a doctor with everything to prove.   When a sickly infant is surrendered at the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after, pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns up. She doesn't exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad, complete with Aaron's cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a risky alliance with her. Country singer-songwriter Lia Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she's determined her tiny nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad—and more unsettling, everything she's ever hoped for in a man. After all she's put him through, is it too late to form a family—and maybe put a song in the good doctor's heart?

Lia looked into Aaron Kendall’s irate blue eyes. She hadn’t expected handsome. She had thought he would be older, bald on top, definitely glasses, reserved with an adoring chubby wife at his side. She had pictured them as a sweet couple who were thrilled by the prospect of having a son and who would give Candace’s unwanted baby the home he deserved. How could she have been so wrong? “All right. Tonight.” She needed time to think through this latest wrinkle in her life. “I’m staying at the Lansdale Hotel. There’s a small restaurant in the hotel. We can meet there.” She glanced at his hand that was still on top of hers. He was the kind of guy who was available because that’s the way he wanted it. Why else would he be single? He was attractive. Tall with the lean, athletic build of a man who was no stranger to physical activity. The deep crow’s feet on the sides of his eyes revealed that he was in his mid to late thirties. He had a little scar on the side of his chin. She wondered how he got it. She wondered why his wife had left him, and when she met his gaze, she wondered if he realized they were close enough to kiss. “I’ll see you at eight.” He released her hand and stepped back. The tension rolled off him in waves. “It would be good if your sister joined us as well.” “Yes, that would be good,” she said before she slipped inside the Jag. She let down the window. “Unfortunately, Candace is dead.” She left Aaron Kendall standing speechless in his driveway. Four days ago, that news had left her speechless, too, when a scruffy girl named Kelly had shown up on her doorstep with a duffel bag containing Candace’s belongings as well as a box holding her ashes.

The sweetest taboo.
Too Close To Love: Loving, Book 1 - M.A.... Too Close To Love: Loving, Book 1 - M.A. Innes

This was recommended to me by a friend and they assured me it was not as naughty as it sounded. I was sceptical but I trust them. Then I read the blurb and cursed my friend because clearly they don’t know me. So first I was like Loretta on Ronny ~

gif cher snap out of it

 

Then I started reading and the story had such a sweet tooth, two bros realise the loving they have for one another is real and not just because at 14 the younger bro was nearly kidnapped and the older bro saved him as he fought the bad guy off. They each think that the other bro is the hero and then because of the nightmares, and because a therapist told their parents to let them, they start sleeping together and they’re still doing it 4 years later. Honies, let me tell all, I was sucked in like a lollipop in a celebrity’s mouth.

 

dem lollipops

 

Ohemgee, they say the cutest things to each otther: “I love you. You know that, right? And not like—you know…like regular.” My eyes teared up and I reached over and put my hand on his leg. I could feel his body vibrating, and I knew how hard it had been to say it. “I know. I love you, too. And who cares what regular is?” Me to Kevin and Jeremy: Mebe the authorities? But they’re such downers, you know? Because, for real, I don’t care. I want to see how you two adorkables make it in the big bad world with your swoony sweetness.  “No, like actually hold you. Like…” This time I blushed. “Like touch you and stuff. Not just sit on the couch all PG and shit.” “Like PG-13 or R?” Kevin grinned, and I could tell he was liking how dysfunctional I was becoming. Me to you: Totally dysfunctional but we’ve established that I don’t care so keep going with your love of the word like and your PG R rating.

Kevin. Jeremy. You may be incestuous but, you guys, you’re SO totes romantically adorkable!  People always hoped their secret crush would want them too one day—Jeremy had made me watch a thousand sappy old movies with that storyline—but it never happened in real life. But this time…it did.

And that Jeremy, he’s such a planner~ he has money saved and he’s organised college out of town and their scholarships, plus their own apartment for when the ‘rents go bananas. Speaking of the ‘rents, they’re suspicious and keep making a now 18 year old Kevin go back to a new therapist to catch 20 year old Jeremy out as a perv. Me to the parents: You’re pretty sick, Chubbs.  

 

Once Kevin does the Salome towel unveil it’s game over. EV-erything is about that towel drop. “I loved hearing how much you enjoyed it when I dropped my towel. Did you like seeing my ass on display just for you?” AND~ “You were so hot, you little tease.” He arched up again and pressed his hard cock against my leg. “When you dropped that towel and your ass was right there, I thought I’d explode. I was afraid you’d see how hard my dick was.”

Jeremy and Kevin sneak out of home, permanently, and their dad is pretty indifferent about his sons sneaking off for good. The new therapist is weirdly cool with it, as in here’s a number for a therapist near the new campus who doesn’t mind abnormal relationships. Say whaaaat?! Too Close to Love made me laugh and I buddy read it partly with a friend. That was fun and waaay better than being squicked the hell out. This book is the sweetest frickin taboo story of all time, I have decay now, but I liked it as a cutie-pie read not so much a sexy one. Whad’yaknow, my friend isn’t in trouble after all. I won’t sic Cher on them. Eh. Mebe I will. 

 

Quick  recap – Kevin and Jeremy are bros who are dreamily and sweetly in love with each other and they run away together, Jeremy is the most planful person alive, they cutely boff each and it ends. Fin. Wrap it up for me Loretta~ 

 

ma i love him awful gif
