BLURB

Ashford Westinghouse is handsome, well built, and successful. He certainly doesn’t see himself as lonely. He often uses one night stands as a coping mechanism to help him blot out the pain of losing the only woman he’s ever loved. She left him without a hint as to why and he has no desire to ever let his heart get destroyed like that again.

 

Isabella Alfieri is beautiful, independent and successful in her own right. Her world is almost perfect, but she still can’t seem to forget the man she loved and left seven years ago. And she’ll never forget the reason she had to go. She’s kept her secret all this time. Aside from her family, there’s only one other person that knows her secret and she would never tell a soul.

 

What will happen when fate intervenes and puts her on the flight he’s co-piloting? The flight that sets them on course for their worlds to come crashing back together after all this time.

 

**Crash Into Me is a full-length, standalone romance with a HEA, no cliffhanger and no cheating.**

Explosive Forces by D.D. Ayres
Explosive Forces: A K-9 Rescue Novel - D. D. Ayres

One night, Carly hears something similar to a dog barking in the empty store next to hers. When she goes to investigate, she finds there really is a dog barking...Beside his obviously drunk and unconscious owner. When a fire erupts, Carly decides to save the unconscious man only to find out he was trying to commit suicide by fire...Or was he?


I don't know what happened. I simply couldn't get into the groove of the story. It felt like watching something through an opaque window. Or as if something was keeping me detached. Maybe it was the fact I felt nothing about the two leads or the fact the two had no chemistry whatsoever (even that last scene felt like an afterthought to tie the "romance" with a nice little bow). Or maybe it was the fact there was no "threat", no feeling of immigrant danger.

The entire story was lukewarm at best only showing stirrings of intensity from chapter 27 to 30. But by then it was too late.

Rival Forces by D.D. Ayres
Rival Forces - Steven D. Ayres

Twelve years ago she was his first love, but he left her behind. Now he’s back, as a favor to her brother, to help her in the quest of finding the man she loves…And keep her safe while in the process.


This was a great story with vivid, gripping, and intense action scenes, a well-depicted looming danger, two wonderful dogs, and a leading man out of every woman’s fantasy. Tall, dark, handsome, protective and with a wonderful sense of humor.

A great story that was ruined by the heroine. I hated the woman’s guts. Not only for the love triangle that was more of a line segment than a true triangle, but because of her character. The woman had so many issues and so much baggage, she was all over the place. Stubborn, selfish, and independent, then angry when her (physical) independence was put into question by her own actions. She bemoaned the fact nobody loved her, but she never let anybody close enough to try. And then she went and settled for the “stable” guy who actually proved to be more dangerous than the guy she burned the sheets with. The guy she dropped kicked into the nuts the minute the normal, steady doctor was back in the picture.

I hate it when people use this expression, but I will use it in this case. Bitch!

Some will say Kye brought it upon himself to have his heart broken (I wanted someone to drop kick her the morning after when she “put him in his place” and the normal guy appeared, and I wanted someone to bludgeon her with a tire iron after reading about the scene that made Kye disappear). And I call bullshit on that. Yes, he knew she was in love with someone else and he wouldn’t have touched her, she was the one that initiated the physical relationship. She was the one who patted him on the head and sent him on his way once she was satisfied. She was the one who toyed with his feelings, while making googly eyes at the doctor. She was the one who juggled both men, and of the three she was the only one who didn’t know what she felt or what she wanted.

And then it took her four (!) months to actually do something and even that happened only after getting a figurative (I wished it was a literal) kick from her brother. And then the story ended. There should’ve been more groveling on her part, if you ask me, but yet again, that “reunion” was all about her and her gratification.

Primal Force by D.D. Ayres
Primal Force - D.D. Ayres

Lauray "Law" Batisse is a mess. His last tour in Afghanistan resulted in him missing a leg and developing one hell of a case of PTSD. Such a case that he needs a service dog that's an utter embarrassment for a tough guy like him. The only thing that makes walking around with a girly dog he's saddled with, is the dog's trainer, easy on the eyes, sexy as all hell, Jori Garrison. Pity the girl keeps him at arms length...As if she knew his motto about loving them and leaving them.

That's not Jori's problem. Having fallen for the wrong guy before resulted in her being an ex-con, and although she knows Law isn't such bad news, he's bad news for her nevertheless. The man is irresistible, and he knows it. He's also unreachable and unattainable, and she knows it. Buy maybe, just maybe, she could have him on his terms...If only her damn heart would listen to reason.


Having read some of the reviews for this story, I was rather apprehensive given Law's behavior and attitude toward relationships with the fairer sex. Imagine my surprise, when I didn't see the asshole everybody was describing. He was a player (or he used to be, before he met Jori), but he wasn't the bastard I feared he would be. He had his moment of jackassery, but he never pretended to be a saint or someone he wasn't and he did warn Jori of what to expect from the start. Whatever happened next was a mutual decision between two adults in (more or less) their right minds and in possession of all their faculties...Although I did like the fact Law was the one a little more out of his depth in their relationships.
I also didn't detect a specific doormat behavior on Jori's part. She was a woman who knew what she wanted, wasn't afraid of going after it, and once she saw a goal, she went after it no matter the obstacles. She stuck it out, and she made her man see reason (no matter how long it took).
I loved the two of them together, I loved their relationship and how it progressed from one-day-stand to something more serious. And even though, as is customary with this series, that "more serious" never got established as love and HEA, it didn't bother me as it did in its predecessor. It went perfectly with who and what we read Jori and Law were as characters.

The suspense was a bit on the mellower side, with the relationships between Jori and Law and Law and Sam (which to me was the main relationship in the book) taking top spot, without much intrigue and mystery, since it was pretty much all in the open. The suspense-light plot bothered me a little, as did the occasional misstep in the pacing department; sometimes the story lost its flow and momentum, resulting in a few slightly dull moments.

Despite these last two hiccups, this was yet another well-written story with a good plot and even better characters (of the human and canine variety—Sam was so utterly adorable and had such a big heart and miles of courage she's definitely my favorite characters in the story) and relationships between them.
