Lanie's Choice (Survivors of Paradise, #1) by Kimberlyn Day Review
Lanie's Choice: Survivors of Paradise (Book 1) - Kimberlyn Day

Finding big, strong aliens isn’t all that hard once you start looking for them. Motivating said aliens to protect your species from plague-infested space pirates? Ehhh...that takes a bit of bargaining.

For a warrior species on the brink of extinction, the price is an old-fashioned marriage alliance.

Which is how Lanie ends up speed-dating on a moon in the middle of nowhere—with no liquid courage in sight. Horns. Tails. Fangs. Claws. How's a girl to choose? Mix-and-match monsters as potential mates convince Lanie she’s offering herself up as a not-so-virgin sacrifice.

…and then she gets to know Delloruin, with his endearing protective streak and raw sexuality. Fen, who thinks deep and considers all sides while melting her with his soulful eyes. Hilom, who’s as sweet as he is deadly, a cocky fighter with a heart of gold.

It would be easy to love each of them…and hard to choose just one of them.

Thankfully, some aliens come in variety packs.

 

 

 

Review

This is a short science fiction romance with many common tropes but the heroes are sweet and fierce as is the heroine and it will be fun to see where this world goes.

ARC Review: Forgotten Paradise by Shira Anthony
Forgotten Paradise (Dreamspun Desires Book 32) - Shira Anthony

This book made lovely use of the amnesia trope - with a twist, albeit one that was (un)intentionally revealed fairly early on.

Adam Preston is a programmer by heart and a computer business owner by trade. Having taken over the company his father built after Dad's untimely demise, he now has Entech, a giant, ruthless company, after his business and his brains. At odds with his younger brother, and stressed from having to deal with a merger he doesn't want, Adam takes his sister's advice and take a week's vacation in the Dominican Republic.

Where he meets Jonah James, who's lived on the island for the last 10 years after washing up on its shore without any memory of his former life. He's managed to become a Diving Instructor, and now leads groups of or individuals tourists on dives around the island. Any time he tries to remember his past, he's hit by massive headaches and mostly doesn't even try anymore. Except spending time with Adam seems to lift the murky veils that cover his past, and Jonah starts to get glimpses of events of who he might have been before.

The first half of the story describes what they presume is just a vacation fling - picnics on the beach, diving, spending time together as much as possible, talking to each other about whatever comes to mind, and realizing that the feelings they're developing may be more than just a fling. On Adam's last night, they finally fall into bed together and burn up the sheets.

The second half of the book deals with the fallout of Jonah regaining his memory (nothing like a night of great sex to get that clarity, amirite), and that changes the dynamic completely.

Adam finds out on the news that what they had joked about during an evening at the beach is actually true, and (view spoiler).

Which brings us to the second trope utilized in this book - getting a second chance. Jonah, upon regaining his memories, and reliving the event that caused him to ultimately wash up on the beach, uses this as a turning point in his life and begins to make amends, realizing that chasing success ruthlessly isn't all that life's about. There's a subplot here too with his business partner that for a while there causes Adam and Jonah's romance to fully derail.

Adam too has a chance to change - especially the relationship he has with his brother - and look at things differently. He's heartbroken, of course, thinking that he's lost Jonah, but deals with the pain as best as he can.

The author did a fabulous job realizing fully fleshed-out, three-dimensional characters in this book and allowed them to grow as well. Set against a gorgeous backdrop, the romance was absolutely believable, even if Jonah's background story is pretty unrealistic, but I expect that from the books in this series. I very much enjoyed reading this, especially as the author seamlessly weaves in fun facts about diving as well.

Obviously, this has a HEA - it wouldn't be a Dreamspun Desires title without. Recommended.


** I received a free copy of this book from its publisher. A positive review was not promised in return. **

Treasure in Paradise (Tj Jensen Paradise Lake Mystery #7) by Kathi Daley
Treasure in Paradise (A Tj Jensen Mystery) (Volume 7) - Kathi Daley

I have read other books by Kathi Daley and other books in this series. I really like Kathi's writing style and love the characters. I really like that these books can be read as stand alones. Like I said I have read other books in the series but when I picked them or this one up I did not really need the full back story to keep up with the book. There are a few references to other books but they are explained so you are not lost. I like how these are mysteries with a touch of romance. There is very little colorful words and no sex in this book and the others of her's I have read. I don't mind sex and cussing but these books just don't need it to make for an interesting read.

 

In this book Tj takes her family of 2 young sisters, Grand Pa, Doc a family friend, Kyle her best friend, 4 cats and 3 dogs from Arizona to Gull Island on the east coast for the summer to help a family friend who has had a stoke by overseeing renovations to his resort.

 

As they arrive the first thing they discover is a dead body in the attic. Tj who has a nose for investigating takes it upon herself to figure out who killed the man in the attic. She is also trying to sword off the efforts of a big corporation who is trying to buy the resort and turn it into a mega resort.

 

I love the feel of Gull Island that Kathi gives. Sounds like a wonderful place to go spend some down time. It is small town at its finest. Every one knows everyone and sounds like it would be a great lace for a stress free vacation, minus the dead body of course. The story moves along nicely it bounces between TJ's investigation and family life. Which lends a sweetness to an otherwise terrible murder mystery.

Hurricane in Paradise (Paradise Series) (Volume 10) - Deborah Brown
Here we go again with the exciting band of Tarpon Coves residents who take us on a rip roaring ride of excitement, love, relationships and a deep commitment to a close knit group.  The beauty of the books is how creative and ingenuous the author is in keeping the novels flowing with fresh and inventive ideas. 
 
If you haven’t read any of the previous novels this is not a problem as the author gives an excellent synopsis of what has occurred in the previous novels. The characters go from strength to strength and become larger than life.  You cannot help but fall in love with them and want to help them get out of their scrapes, trials and tribulations.
 
In this particular novel poor Madison has a lot to deal when a dead body is found on her property after a hurricane, her brother has gone missing and also has to care for the eccentric folk she has let live in her cottages.  Along with her best friend Fab working for a local hood and crossing the lines of the law on several occasions a lesser woman have cracked.
 
The characters in Tarpon Cove could be linked to local people in your vicinity and I think that’s why I can relate strongly to the novels. The scenes and places also create vivid images of local places and when I visit them can imagine Madison and her entourage just popping up around the corner.
 
The tenth novel in an excellent series and is a must read for any fan of this particular genre.
