Kiss of Fire by Deborah Cooke
Kiss of Fire - Deborah Cooke

I liked the first half of the book better than the second half. I liked the writing. I wasn't impressed with the characters. I felt the female protagonist really accepted her "fate" way too easily than what I thought she would based on how she had previously portrayed. The male protagonist I really liked, but at times his actions and dialogue felt flat. There wasn't as much sexual tension as I have grown to expect from books of the genre. The love didn't feel intense. There were a lot of cheesy one liner during battle scenes that made me feel like I was in the midst of one chronic eye-rolling fit.

 

I have read other books by this author that I have enjoyed and will read book two hoping this book is just a fluke.

Quick second chance/reunion love story
A Kiss for Miss Kingsley: A Regency Short Story - Collette Cameron

This is a second chance at love. Olivia followed her family loyalty while Allen nursed his hurt feelings over being rejected. Despite the time that has passed, Olivia's hopes build but she worries about how she is seen by others. Allen follows his heart, not his head, when he sees her. I loved their honesty as they speak of their feelings. I enjoyed this story, and I look forward to reading the next in the series.

This is my unsolicited review.

Kiss Me In The Rain (Destined for Love: Mansions) by Lindzee Armstrong
Kiss Me in the Rain (Destined for Love: Mansions) - Lindzee Armstrong

 

It's hard to control your own destiny when fate has other plans.  Lindzee Armstrong can always be counted on to keep the laughs going and the drama flowing.  Kiss Me In the Rain brings more emotion than usual.  Tyler and Layla are caught in the eye of a storm that seems to have no end in sight.  The heart is the deciding factor, but along the way encounters with danger await and adorable heads right into trouble. Laugh your way into love is a motto that Ms. Armstrong takes to heart and that mantra influence every story she writes.

One Last Kiss (Eternal Bachelors Club) by Cynthia Cooke
One Last Kiss (Tina Folsom's Eternal Bachelors Club) - Cynthia Cooke

 

Love is like a mirage.  From a distance, everything seems perfect, but upon deeper inspection the reality is anything but.  Hunter and Ashleigh bring that metaphor to life.  She's the movie star with a skyrocketing career.  He's the billionaire, wallowing in self regret. Underhanded schemers and heartbreaking misunderstandings ruined their chance in the past, will a tragic turn of events provide them a second chance?  One Last Kiss is a what if, that was meant to be a happily-ever-after ever after.  Ms. Cooke sets out to seduce and ends up delivering so much more.

great story and characters
Last First Kiss (Iron-clad Security) - Sidney Halston

Rocco was a rom/com king mostly known for his looks but he has landed a serious role that will revive or break his career. Rocco was to play the lead in El Traficante the true story of Gabriel Mendoza - Columbia’s infamous drug lord- hated by many but idolized by more. Paul Allen was Rocco’s agent and best friend. Paul told rocco he was lucky to get the part and to do as the contract said or the studio would find someone else that would for the role. The studio wanted Rocco to have a bodyguard and there was an appointment for Rocco to be at Iron Clad Security- ICS- next week. Paul was always the calm, cool, and collected guy whereas Rocco was temperamental and quick acting. Joey and Jax were co-partners of ICB and Annie is Joey’s sister who ran the office for the two men. But being behind a desk was slowly eating at Annie’s soul as she wanted to be in the field. Annie and Joey had a very high IQ and handled most of the IT related jobs. Annie was capable of doing both if they would just give her a chance. Eight years in the army had toughened Annie up not that she hadn’t already been tough with four older brothers.No one knew of Annie’s nightmares or self loathing. She hadn’t been fast enough the first time she drew her weapon to kill and seven year old Yagena an afghan little girl had died in Annie’s arms. No nightmares or anything would bring back Derek who died across the street from her or Yagana .  Joey could sit in his office every day all day as he loved coding but Annie needed the mental and physical challenge that came with fieldwork. It was what Annie was used to. It was what she was good at. Annie was a secret fan of Rocco’s and she did her research. Recently Rocco had been named by Most Eligible Bachelor and The Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. Rocco had dated just about every woman in Hollywood. The Arrogant playboy wouldn’t mess up her concentration that had happened once and she wouldn’t bear the loss and humiliation ever again. Rocco was hit with lust the minute he saw Annie. Annie got mad at Rocco’s attitude and flipped him and then she quit. After Annie left Rocco told Jax and Joey that Annie was who he wanted as his bodyguard. Annie’s best friend  and roommate was Zander/Zan . Annie acted on on impulse, anger, and pent up frustration and Rocco had taken the brunt of her anger and rocco didn’t deserve it even if he had been to too cocky for his own good and he could sue Annie. Then Joey called and said the studio hired ICS but Rocco stipulated she be his bodyguard. But Annie was to play Rocco’s girlfriend for the next four months. Rocco and Paul were like brothers as the had grown up in the same foster care and only with the grace of God and luck Rocco had been spotted by a modeling agency at the mall and at seventeen and Rocco’s career took off from there. Rocco had never met a woman he wanted more than Annie.

I loved this story. It was a great and fun read. I loved the plot and pace. To make a woman the bodyguard of a male movie star was great. I enjoyed the alpha vive between Rocco and Annie. The back and forth. I felt bad that Annie had been traumatized while in the Army and lost so much. I loved how Rocco was  really down to earth in his real life. I also loved how Annie filled the loneliness in Rocco and Rocco in her. This was just an all around great story and great romance. I snickered at times and choked up at times. Especially at Joey and his big brother protectiveness. I loved Rocco and Annie together. I also loved Rocco and Paul’s relationship. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
