great story, great characters
The Billionaire's Forever Family - Cate Cameron

Cassidy was making a sandwich when she saw the men in the doorway and she knew she had made a mistake. But Cassady had learned from her sister Penny the power of self delusion and talked to Mr’ Emerson who she had just made the sandwich for. Then one of the gentlemen came up to Cassady and he said he represented William-Will- Connelly and he believed  she knew why they were there. The man introduced himself as Trevor and asked when he could expect Cassady’s call and handed her a card when his name and cell number on it. Cassady had sent an email to Will that her thirteen year old  niece Emily may ne his daughter it had taken Will awhile but all he did was send this cold lawyer. Cassady didn’t want Trevor looking at  Emily- her niece- with that cold stare. Cassady was all Emily had left in this world. Cassady had to tell Emily what had happened and the lawyer showing up. Cassady had used her own DNA for the cheek swab once she had talked to Emily but Trevor had taken a straw Emily had been chewing on. Emily was will’s daughter and he showed up at the diner very angry but then Cassady acted just as angry that he had sent a cold lawyer instead of showing up himself in the first place. Trevor had been Will’s good friend long before he had became his lawyer. Will thought maybe he had come across to harsh to Cassady. Cassady had left to pick Emily up at school before she found out through gossip that Will was her father and there in town. Trevor pointed out to Will that Cassady was more mother to Emily then aunt. Cassady admitted to Will the roof was leaking at her and Emily’s home and agreed to let him fix it so his daughter would be living in a dry home. But then the roofers found mold in the attic and it could take several weeks to clear it all out. Cassady agreed to stay with Emily at Will’s rental house until their house was cleared of the mold. Also the diners roof was leaking and the landlord had already told Cassady he wasn’t putting any more money in the building. The landlord wanted to find someone who would pay more rent for the building or raise the rent on Cassady and she just didn't have the money to pay more rent. Will had been seeing Victoria but it was more a convenience thing then true feelings . Victoria wasn’t one he could go to with his failures or worries. But Will knew he had to end it with Victoria and when he went to the city again about work that is what he did. That was the right thing to do but Will didn’t want to think about why that was the right thing to do.

I loved this book. I loved how Emily was so open to meeting her father and getting to know him but still loved her aunt deeply no matter how much Will could give her or provide her with. I loved how everything was about Emily with Cassady. I also loved how Will was so good with Emily after the big surprise of her existence and learning as he went along. This was a short enjoyable fun read. I loved the romance in the book also but that wasn’t all the book was about. I also loved how neither Will or Emily were willing to let Cassady go no matter they had to do. I loved everything about this book. I could find nothing to complain about and that was great. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.

Forced: A Bad Boy Billionaire Romance (The Blackthorn Brothers Book 1) - Cali MacKay
  Well this is certainly a bit different from the last series I read from Cali. Wren has moved away from home to try and forget all the bad stuff that happened, I don't think she knew her father has been having her watched though maybe if he had done that sooner the bad stuff wouldn't have happened. Ash had broken off with her thinking maybe someone else could help her and she would be happier, all it did was send her back to the one causing the trouble. Both are still in love with each other and now being blackmailed to get married by her father. The twists in this were not as surprising as I expected them to be, but I still enjoyed the story. There is abusive content and talk of rape, plus the BDSM element to Wren and Ash's relationship though I feel she needed that because of everything else she had been through and Ash was just trying to give her the release she needed. Lots of sexual content which is graphic, I suppose some might feel there was to much of this and maybe there could have been a bit more plot. But I felt that to some extent the sexual side of the story was probably more of the focus because they just couldn't keep their hands off each other, even when Wren was running away. I still found I lost myself in the reading which is good, maybe not my favourite of Cali's books but still worth my 5 stars and I am reading on through the series.

Immortal Billionaire - Jane Godman Immortal Billionaire - Jane Godman
Initially, I had difficulty getting in to the story.  At one point, I thought of giving up on it, but I placed it aside for a while and read other books in the process. Eventually I picked it back up, and realised it was not all bad.
 
When I took up this book, I thought I would be reading about vampires, oh boy was I wrong. The story explored the concept of reincarnation, immortality, curses and time travel.
 
What I liked
 
Fascinating Premise
 
I found the story unique  It is my first time reading a romance where reincarnation combined with time travel and immortality was a major theme.  I thought the author handled the concept well.
 
Supense/Mystery
 
The suspense/mystery thread kept me on my toes. Honestly, I never expected that much intensity, but I found myself on edge as I tried figuring out who was behind the attacks on the island. As the story progressed so did my suspicions about the stalker’s identity. The author tried to throw me off the scent, however another attack happened, which led me to I was correct in my initial assessment.
 
The Story
 
I loved how the story played out for the most part. The writing is exquisite. I was fascinated by the vivid descriptions of the island and the detailed history of the protagonists’ past lives.
 
The Romance
 
At first I thought this would be another insta-love romance, but as the story developed, I realised it was not the case.  Instead their love spanned several centuries, so when Connie came to the island, his soul instantly recognised her.  It was easy to buying into Sylvester’s the instant connection with Connie
 
 
What I did not like
 
The slow start to the story is a challenge. It took me a while to warm up to it.
 
Characters
I did not connect with the characters. They lacked depth, which is surprising given all they went through.  Since her attack, Connie had been looking over shoulder and living in fear.  However, I did not get the feeling she was scared. Her actions were contrary to her experiences.  Sylvester did not fare any better for me. For someone who has lived many lives I did not expect him to get caught off guard by the events on the island.
 
Conclusion/Recommendation
 
This was not a favourite read. There were some enjoyable moments, but it was not enough to wow me. This is my first time reading the author’s work, but I am not averse to giving her another shot.
 
The purpose of this review is not to deter you from picking up this title. It is my perspective and it is possible your experience will be different from mine. That being said if you enjoy suspense, romance, time travel and reincarnation then you may enjoy Immortal Billionaire.

The Baker's Billionaire
The Baker's Billionaire - Brooke Shelby Sugar and spice breeds everything nice and Ms. Shelby is there to give it a helping hand. The Baker's Billionaire is a flirty tale of legacy, laughter and love. With an attraction almost as addictive as the tasty concoctions Jackie creates, Chaz and Jackie are a steamy introduction to my already overflowing favorites list.
