One Summer Night
One Summer Night (At the Shore Book 1) - Caridad Piñeiro

eARC courtesy of Sourcebooks Casablanca and NetGalley
Release date: Oct 3rd

 

There is a lot happening in this one. Maggie partially owns her family business with her dad (and other shareholders of course). The retail division is losing money, due in part, to her dad being rigid and not wanting to change anything. Maggie has mortgaged 2 of the family's properties to keep them afloat and she will lose her home (and vacation home at Sea Kiss) if she can't turn things around. 
Owen is part owner of his family's real estate empire. His father disinherited his brother Jonathon when he wouldn't do what he wanted. His father hates the Sinclairs and wants their retail properties. Owen walks a fine line trying to have both what he wants and his father's approval.
I enjoyed this one, in part, because of the family history. Maggie grew up next door to Owen and his brother in Sea Kiss. Things happen and they run into each other periodically as they grew up, attend college, and then in the city. I liked this for the slow burn romance at first, then it became so much more quickly. Maggie does grow a spine and talks to her dad about his refusal to make changes. I assume Maggie's friends, Connie and Emma get their HEAs in future books. (I'm hoping Connie's is first; I think some of her story was happening concurrently with Maggie's. I also suspect she is

Love this!
Opposites Attract (Nerds of Paradise Boo... Opposites Attract (Nerds of Paradise Book 1) - Merry Farmer

Opposites Attract by Merry Farmer is a totally fun read.  Ms Farmer has given us a book that is loaded with humor, drama, sizzle and suspense.  I loved the characters in Casey and Scott's story, they are a perfect fit in this book.  I enjoyed reading Opposites Attract and look forward to reading more from Merry Farmer in the future.  Opposites Attract is book 1 of the Nerds Of Paradise Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Naughty Christmas
The Naughty List (Make Mine A Menage Boo... The Naughty List (Make Mine A Menage Book 1) - Jodi Redford

The Naughty List by Jodi Redford is a fun but naughty Christmas read.  Ms Redford has delivered a fun book loaded with amazing characters.  Lacey, Ry and Bram's story is full of drama, humor and five-alarm heat.  This is a M/F/M menage, so it may not be everyone's cup of tea.  I enjoyed reading The Naughty List and look forward to reading more from Jodi Redford soon.  The Naughty List is book 1 of the Make Mine A Menage Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

"My Cup Runneth Over" by Janeva Gardel

 

My Thoughts......

 

What a beautiful novel that I had the privilege of reading!  This was truly a wonderful amazing read of Skylar Mathis and Zyon Davis that seemed from the first time they meet that they were made for each other.  I enjoyed how this author was able to bring in the christian faith effect of the read and I especially loved that title: "My Cup Runneth Over" bringing out so many important messages for all to be able to absorb. The reader is only left with knowing that 'true love really does exit and of God's love.'  The characters were all very well developed and definitely bringing the reader  a believable as well as a relatable read that made one  could feel that they knew these people as there was an 'importance of prayer, scripture, forgiveness, restoration, being able to move on for a healthy relationship and finally a HEA.' I will be looking forward to the next story that will deal with Skylar's best friend  Zavia and Zyon's brother Xavier in 'Surely Goodness and Mercy Shall Follow Me.'

Let There Be Love (Sled Dog) by Melissa Storm
Let There Be Love (The Sled Dog Series Book 1) - Melissa Storm

 

 

I have always been fascinated by dogsledding.  The picturesque scenery, the beautiful dogs and the connection that builds between the dogs and their trainers.  That sport is truly a thing of beauty to watch.  Naturally, I was drawn to Let There Be Love for that reason. However, I stayed because I am in awe of the author and her ability to create powerhouse tales of courage that mix the fairy tales of old with the lessons of life.  Ms. Storm manages to inspire as she informs.  Her stories are thought provoking, emotionally charged works of art, despite the subject matter her stories get people talking and that's a trait that every author hopes for.
