Lake Campbell’s world came crashing down with just one phone call.
 
Her parents were dead, and she was catapulted into a full-blown adult whether she was ready or not.
 
Without support from her boyfriend, Lake found herself a guardian to her siblings and the owner of the family’s fledging bakery, not to mention a house that was falling down around their ears. 
 
Life as she knew it was changed forever. Especially when a hunky hose man walked into her bakery asking for catering … and a kiss.
 
All of a sudden her sexy daydreams of firemen with kittens and puppies became very real.
 
Carson Hogan had a lot on his plate. His ex-wife was spending money faster than he could earn it, his two daughters were out of control, and to his utter shock, becoming too much like their mother. And he was doing his best to protect his son from the crazy women in his life. Add a stressful but fulfilling job, he wasn’t looking for anything else.
 
At least he thought he wasn’t. Until he entered the bakery across the street to find a silver eyed blonde sprite begging for sex … sort of. 
 
Love blossoms quickly between the two but with all the outside interferences promising to ruin their new found love, will they risk everything and walk into the fire and claim their happily ever after?


Not sure where to start with this review but, I guess I will just say that this author has done it yet again! After reading the Wounded Soul's Series that happened to be one of my top favorite MC Series for 2018 started wondering if the next series she wrote would be able to hold a candle to the last one but, Leah has done it again and made us fall in love all over again with her brand new character's in this brand new series.We loved the first book in this brand new series and we read it cover to cover in just one sitting.The story was filled with so many amazing characters that you could not help but, fall in love with them all.

The story had drama,instant attraction,great friendships,hot sex,betrayals,sadness and pain,love,self sacrifices and so much more.The story had character's that had lives that were filled with struggles and hardships but, no matter what those obstacles were their lives were filled with love happiness and for one in particular a crazy ex.


Lake- We loved her because she was sweet kind,caring,protective of her family,she was filled with determination and independence, was a roll model for her brother and sisters,was sassy and flirty, and had one heck of a vibrant personality that was filled with feistiness and shouldered a whole lot of responsibility for someone so young.



Carson- We found him to be adorable,sexy as sin,loving caring,protective,possessive sweet,kind and a man who instantly new the girl he just met was destined to be his wife.Carson was easy to love with his easy going personality and his flirtatiousness ways.Lake says "he is a hunky hose man that gives a girl mini orgasms." lol Well, we totally agree with her observations. grins.....


We really enjoyed the stories plot but, what made this story was its's character's as they all played a part in its outcome.The chemistry between Lake and Carson was instantaneous and hot as he**.This couple had an age gap yet, none of it mattered because they were perfect for one another.We loved being on Carson and Lake's journey as it was not and easy one but, filled with so much love that they would whether all the twists and turns and the storms to come.


The author did an amazing job starting this brand new series and we are so looking forward to the next  in this ongoing series.We also loved that some of the character's were connected to some of the character's from the Wounded Souls clan because we sure do miss them.


Loved it and We totally Recommend it!

Goes into the keeper pile to be read time and time again.



 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I love the idea of being in love. Since my early teens when I first discovered Silhouette Desire novels my life has been all about reading. I would find myself re-writing scenes if I wasn't happy with them and hiding them under my bed. That led me to writing love stories of my own. They all ended up under the bed and are still there, and there they will stay. I don't do angst, in fact it drives me crazy. 

I am a mum of three beautiful girls, Australian, and have what most say is a weird sense of humor.

I spend my free time doing movie, Sons of Anarchy, and Friends marathons. And reading.
I love Pina Colada's and getting caught in the rain..... there's that weird humor.

My life had been a series of unfortunate events:
Some of them out of my control, some of them entirely my fault.
I was only weeks away from being able to take my daughter and 
finally be free from the past that had imprisoned us.
And then Tamsin Lucas showed up on my doorstep,
looking every inch the innocent angel yet begging to be ruined.
I told myself I could live not knowing her secrets or the reason for her hurt.
And I swore I could survive never touching her again.
Until I needed her to homeschool my daughter.
Now, I’m fighting to rein in my desire for the woman who’s always been perfect
and protect her from those who are out to destroy me.
Tammy was too good to want someone like me.
But what if I was too bad to care to stay away?
 
Tamsin
 
Making the right choice was the slogan for my life and the motto for my soul,
until all the right decisions led to a very wrong result.
In the moment when life felt like a catastrophe, 
I ran to him. Nick Frost. 
The callous man who was colder than the mountain 
and possessed more secrets than it did snowflakes.
For one night, I traded sense for sensibility 
and my well-kept order for his comfortable chaos.
I thought one night and one wrong choice would be enough 
until he became my boss and wrong began to look a lot like right.
With every day that passes, I learn there’s more to his story than the world knows
and more to the unquenchable desire being written between us.
Nick was too bad to want someone like me.
But what if what we had was too good to keep me away?


 
Let's start off by saying this is a first time author for us and we really enjoyed our first read by them, but most of all we loved how the author decided to do a multiple Epilogue ending and it was the best treat ever and made the ending even more perfect.
 
We loved the story from beginning to end.The story had a great cast of character's that you were drawn to immediately as well as them being fun and oh so love-able.It's been a while that a have read a sports romance themed book and it was really a nice treat to break the ice as they say and read something out of my comfort zone and this story did the trick because I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I really am loving this author's style of writing.
 
We loved Priss she was just pure sunshine a mother to all,love-able, a great friend,smart ,sexy with that sexy librarian vibe lol, just one of those hometown girls who would give the shirt off her back for someone in need.I also loved that she was a little bit nerdy as it just made her more attractive.
 
Priss favorite quote - "He was so painfully beautiful. Unique. Just like a snowflake."
 
Nick Frost- What can I say other than we really loved the his gruffness,his dirty and crude talk,his straightforwardness,his playboy looks,we loved his vulnerability but , most of all we loved how he loved his daughter with such fierceness that he was willing to make such drastic life changes to keep her safe and protected.
 
Favorite quote - "Nick Frost was a Casanova on ice—shaken, not stirred."
 
 
We loved the chemistry that Priss and Nick had between them as it was intense and hot as he** !
There was tons of super sexy and hot romance scenes ."Can you say fanning myself!"
 
We loved this cast of character's they all we a lot of fun but, I have to say that Priss's girlfriends were the bomb! "We loved them!"
 
I loved how they kept asking Priss if she got frosted yet? It made me laugh time and time again.
 
Overall we loved the plot as it had a serious undertone,was filled with tons of drama,more than a few surprises happen, super hot sex scenes in and out of bed but, most of all we just like how the story unfolded and kept us glued to the pages to the very end. 
 
I love when you connect with the character's that you are reading about and it was able with this cast of character's as they made it easy because they were just so much fun.The story made me laugh and cry and it was heart felt and we just loved it !
 
Recommend read to all!
 
Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Another Country (Audiobook)
Another Country (MP3 Book) - Dion Graham,James Baldwin

Once again, I find myself not really sure what to think of a book. It was undoubtedly well-written and an interesting examination of liberalism in the 1950s, the struggles between the races and how the anger and confusion and incomprehension of everyone's varying struggles and outlooks can make a group of friends - if you can even really call them that - do pretty horrible things to each other. 

 

I can't really say I liked any of the characters. They were all self-involved assholes who could only see their own pain, but then, that was also the point of the story, so I guess it was successful, lol. But people who cheat because they can't figure out what they want -and everyone here cheats at one point or another - are just not very good people. They're dishonest and unfaithful, to themselves as much as their partners and families. I could sympathize with some of them, especially Ida. The constant misogyny made me uncomfortable, even more so than the brutal examination of racism and internal homophobia.

 

The interpersonal relationships of the various characters were used to examine the larger world these characters lived in, to really look at what it meant to be alive in this time and place. What did it mean to be white? To be black? To be male or female? To be queer? And how was this group of people going to meet these challenges, how would they struggle with the old ways while trying to create new ones, if that was even possible?

 

It's an uncomfortable read, and it's meant to be, but not being able to really connect with the characters prevented me from really getting into the story.

 

The narrator, Dion Graham, was very listenable and did a good job with all the voices, male and female. I listened at 1.20 times and it was perhaps still just a tad too slow.

Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
Sometimes I Lie - Alice Feeney

Content warning: this book contains multiple instances of sexual assault, a couple of which are on-page.

This story is told in chapters set in three different time periods: Amber's present, Amber's recent past, and childhood diary entries. Amber wakes up on December 26th to discover that she is in a coma, unable to move or speak but occasionally able to hear what's going on around her. She has no memory of what happened but is convinced her husband had something to do with it. For whatever reason, he no longer loves her, although he seems to be doing a good job of pretending to be a devoted husband whenever he visits her at the hospital.

Just a few days prior, Amber was limping along in her job as an assistant at a radio show. She's been given an ultimatum: either figure out how to get the voice of the show, Madeline, to like her, or she'll no longer have a job come January 1st. Amber decides to take a different route. Through carefully planted social media posts, anonymous notes, and a few other efforts, she'll convince Madeline that she's about to be let go instead. While Amber is doing all of this, her personal life is in shambles. Her husband is behaving secretively and may be having an affair with Claire, her more beloved younger sister who lives right next door. This makes meeting up with Edward, an ex-boyfriend, more appealing than it maybe should be.

Meanwhile, diary entries written 25 years ago unravel the childhood secrets that continue to rule Amber's life.

A few weeks ago, my local book club voted on their next read. This is the book I voted for, although it isn't the book that was ultimately chosen. I decided I wanted to read it anyway. I basically gobbled it up, which is saying something considering how slowly I've been reading lately.

The more I read, the more horrible many of the characters seemed. Amber was consumed by jealousy. Later, I added "selfish" and "astonishingly lacking in empathy" to the list, although I did eventually come to feel sorry for her, at least until the very end. Claire, Amber's sister, was potentially a snake, depending on how much of what was going on was in Amber's head and how much was real. Paul, Amber's husband, seemed to only be interested in her in the most shallow of ways, although, again, everything depended on how much was real and how much was just in Amber's head. She wore different masks depending on who she was speaking to, and I found it difficult to believe that Paul had ever really loved her, since he likely didn't even really know her, not the real her.

From the very beginning, readers knew to expect that Amber would be an unreliable narrator. As she said at the start: "Sometimes I lie." I kept my eyes open for clues and was able to catch a few. I figured out, for example, how one detail mentioned in the diary could be true even as the existence of another character indicated that it had to be false. However, I only guessed part of what was going on. I've since realized that there was a great big clue that I'd missed. Could I have figured out what was going on sooner? Maybe, but I doubt it.

Although I disliked most of the characters, I couldn't stop reading because I wanted to find out how all the pieces fit together. I didn't get anxious about the characters' fates because, well, I didn't like them very much. One of the big twists near the end forced me to grapple with shifting perceptions of them, but then the ending happened.

While I agree that something needed to be done - a character shouldn't be able to win happiness that way - the very last sentence annoyed me. It seemed like the sort of thing you'd find in a slasher movie, a bit too much for this sort of book. It would have been more effective and believable to show that the character's own paranoia, doubts, and fears would one day eat them up and keep them from ever enjoying their happy new life.

I was originally going to say that one particular character's actions near the end didn't make much sense considering they'd been a follower most of their life, but I realized their actions did make sense...if, as it turned out, they were just as warped as another one of the characters, only in a different way. There's one line that I think was supposed to indicate that that was indeed the case.

All in all, this was a riveting read, even though it stumbled a bit in the end.
