Release Day Review! Christmas At the Chalet by Anita Hughes!

 

 

A delicious love story about a bridal designer showing her new collection in the Alps during the magical week of Christmas where hijinx of the heart ensue.

 

It's the day after Christmas, and Felicity Grant is at a gorgeous ski chalet in St. Moritz for the biggest fashion show of her career. Felicity is a rising star on the bridal design scene, and this is her best collection yet. But when her boyfriend gives her a spa day instead of a diamond ring for Christmas, she has to face the possibility that she may never walk down the aisle in one of her own stunning designs.

 

And then there's Nell, the top model headlining Felicity's show. Nell is planning her dream wedding to her wonderful fiance with one catch: her divorced parents can't stand each other and threaten to no-show if the other is there.

 

Add to that Felicity's race against the clock to create a special gown for a prestigious bridal salon, and what both girls need is a Christmas miracle. What better place to find one than in the Swiss Alps with its dark forests and sparkling vistas?

 

But for Felicity it's hard to recognize a miracle even when it's right in front of her, and for Nell one miracle might not be enough to fix the past. Can dreams really come true or is that the stuff of Swiss fairytales?

 

Anita Hughes's Christmas at the Chalet is full of romance, gorgeous gowns, and the stunning scenery of the Swiss Alps. It's about love and forgiveness, and creating one's own miracles during the most festive time of year.

 

 

A delightful exotic Christmas love story with strong, compelling characters that pull readers into their story. The holidays are a time that readers can expect miracles in their romance and this story certainly lives up to that expectation as Felicity Grant and Nell both wish for a Christmas miracle. Felicity is a successful bridal designer who’s beginning to think that she will never where one of her own designs since her longtime boyfriend still hasn’t popped the question and seems to be resisting getting married at all. Nell is one of Felicity’s models and she trying to plan her dream wedding, only problem is her parents refuse to be in the same room as the other. As hijinks ensure in a wonderfully exotic setting, this fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of intriguing events and emotional turbulence that ensures that readers are rooting for those Christmas miracles for Felicity and Nell. Added suspense comes from Felicity’s career as a prestigious bridal salon is interested in her designs and she meets a Doctor that is a knight in shining armor, at least he is for Felicity. Meanwhile, Nell’s parents have both joined Nell in St. Moritz for the fashion show and Nell has to keep them apart. The story is a delightfully charming read that causes some chuckling and some feel good emotions in readers and the Felicity’s romance is a bit different and doesn’t turn out the way most readers would expect.

Release Week Review! Up in Flames (Flirting with Fire #2) Jennifer Blackwood!

 

 

It takes one little spark for enemies to ignite into lovers in a searing-hot novel by USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackwood.

 

Sloane Garcia has butted heads with Reece Jenkins ever since he was a colossal jerk of epic proportions on a night she’d rather forget. So what if he’s overconfident, ultramasculine, and hard muscled? When she finds out he’s on the auction block at the annual firefighter’s charity event, she decides to give this cocky firefighter a dose of his own medicine. Now that she’s won the hunk, he’s on call—to do whatever Sloane wants.

 

Sure, Reece and Sloane had a rocky start, but he had his reasons. None of that matters now that he’s the bachelor at her beck and call, tasked with granting her four wishes in four weeks. He runs into burning buildings for a living, but nothing will be as tough as dousing the flames Sloane ignites in him. What started out as just a game might end up with Reece losing the one thing he swore he’d never give up: his heart.

 

 

Watch out for flying sparks and cutting snark in this energetic and passionate romance. Sloane and Reece are two strong, stubborn and charismatic characters that demand attention as they work toward a relationship that doesn’t seem likely. The romance starts off real rocky and continues with a passionate and verbal back and forth as Sloane sets up a bit “take your own medicine” to the cocky firefighter. Reece realizes his mistake, but isn’t sure how to fix it, so to protect his heart, he continues with witty repertoire while accepting her little payback. This keeps things exciting and causes quite a few chuckles along the way, but that’s not all that this romance has. Readers also find that they are drawn to these two characters vulnerable sides as the author does a great job of describing the emotional turmoil that Sloane and Reece go through before they ever reach that happily ever after.

 

The story is fast paced and has quite a few other things going on throughout the story as well as the feisty romance. There is trouble with Reece’s fire Chief and quite a few fires where danger seems to follow Reece and his unit. Readers never get a chance to become bored and they have to know what will happen between the combatants of this romance. The book can be read as a standalone, which is a good thing since I haven’t read the first book in this series yet, but I will be remedying that soon as I got to meet those characters and really want to know what happened during their romance.

Book Description:

 

Beau

She is beautiful, probably the most beautiful girl I've ever seen, but she's damaged. Her a-hole exboyfriend broke her. I still want her. I can show her that all men aren't the same. That I'm different. But time isn't on my side, I've only got a few weeks to make her mine before she's gone forever.

Mallory

 

He's everything I need to stay away from, handsome, cocky, and irresistible. I try to resist him. I really do, but he's relentless. Against my better judgment, I give in and let him have me. All of me. I should have known better.

Can’t Let Go is a heart-warming love story about Beau, a country boy with a heart of gold, and Mallory, a woman scorned. The timing couldn’t be more wrong, but sometimes someone walks into your life and you just can’t let them go.

 


AVAILABLE in ebook at

 

Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Cant-Georgia-Boys-Novel-Book-ebook/dp/B07FTQX7MB/

 

 

 

 

Excerpt 1:

 

Two days. It’s been two days without Mallory, and I’m going fucking crazy. I miss her so much it hurts. I didn’t know it was possible to fall for somebody so fast and so hard. It sucks; being alone sucks.


Days are hard. Nearly every place I go triggers a memory, but nights are even harder. Every time I close my eyes I see her face. Her heart breaking over and over again in my dreams. I don’t know if my memories are becoming clearer as time goes on or if my mind has started filling in the blanks. My nightmares get so bad I can’t sleep unless I black out.


Every breath hurts, every movement, even something as simple as getting out of bed in the morning is a struggle. The guilt of knowing how much I hurt her and the loneliness I feel inside eats me alive.


I spend my days wondering what she’s doing.


Is she okay?


Is she still crying?


Is she curled up on the couch watching Mama Mia and trying to forget me?


Is she out drinking herself to death like I am as I try to block out the pain?


Or, the worst one of all, did she get over me and move on to someone new? I think that thought tears me up the most. I know we haven’t been apart long, but the phrase “to get over someone you have to get under someone else” haunts me.


Thinking about her in some other man’s arms, his lips kissing her soft skin, his hands roaming her body, makes me sick. The only thing that helps numb the suckiness that has become my life is the whiskey.


I grab the bottle of Jack beside my bed and take a swallow, then chase it down with another and another until the pain doesn’t hurt quite as much. But no matter how much I drink, there’s always a dull ache that is Mallory.

Release Week Review! Consumed (Firefighters #1) J.R. Ward!

 

 

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Ann Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family's scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.

 

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...

 

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

 

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

 

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

 

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

 

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm . . .

 


Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed with family’s scorched legacy and her case, chasing a deadly killer. Premiere fireman Danny McGuire seems to have a death wish and is taking risks like never before.

 

These two characters are strong, daring and convincing as they draw readers into their story and their story is one heartfelt, courageous, and gritty romance that readers can’t help but become engrossed in. The romance between Anne and Danny is an uphill battle as they strive to overcome several obstacles and hardships that invokes a lot of emotional turmoil but the sparks between is undeniable and keeps pulling them toward that elusive happily ever after.

 

This story has a steady pace that keeps readers hanging on to every word with thrilling anticipation as relationship woes, thrilling suspense and surprising twists. The story starts off an extreme emotive and thought provoking event that has readers gasping in horror and hoping for the best and readers have to wonder how this couple will be able to move forward in their personal and professional lives. As their journey progresses, readers have to admire their courage and fortitude with every decision and with danger and betrayal closing in there is no way readers can’t stop reading. The characters and the story is so lifelike and the author’s well-chosen words and descriptions ensure that the readers can picture each and every scene and that they can’t remain detached while reading this story. I love J.R. Wards BDB world and I was looking forward to reading this contemporary one and although I find the synopsis a bit misleading, I was quite pleased with it and I can’t wait to read the next story in this sizzling new series.
