Air By Ryan Gattis
Air - Ryan Gattis Air - Ryan Gattis

I have very mixed feelings about this one. Grey, a 17 year old boy has to move to Baltimore City after his mother's death. There he befriends a motorcycle riding group of kids who do dangerous stunts to antagonize the police. 

 

And that's what I didn't like. How much these boys were trying to make a point and were doing all this trick riding JUST to antagonize the cops. It ticked me off. And felt a little unrealistic. I'm from Maryland, and while I don't live in the city I think the cops there have a lot more to worry about than teenagers riding dirt bikes.

 

And while I get what the author is trying to do here I think the point gets a little murky. I would have liked to know a little more about the main character and less about the bike riding (again, why?). 

 

It has really good reviews, so this may be another one of those its not for me but it might be for you type of books.

Still (Grip) by Kennedy Ryan
STILL (Grip Book 2) - Kennedy Ryan

 

From the very beginning Ms. Ryan has made it hard to resist this couple.  How could I call myself a romantic, if I wasn't rooting for their happy ending? Still is the culmination of a love affair that is gritty, heartbreaking and all encompassing.  From friends to lovers, it's been a bumpy road, but the connection between Bristol and Grip, although tested never wavers. I want a love like that.

In Too Deep (The Blackhawk Boys, #5) by Lexi Ryan
In Too Deep (The Blackhawk Boys) (Volume 5) - Lexi Ryan

Lexi Ryan scores with IN TOO DEEP the fifth book in the Blackhawk Boys Series.  I couldn’t wait to read this story.  Mason Dahl and Bailey Green have been involved since the first book to the series.  Their relationship is complicated, and there was so much more going on than what you gathered from the previous books.  Mason and Baily got married in Las Vegas while at the bachelor/bachelorette party in book four, FALLING HARD.  Now Mason has devised a plan to try to win Baily over for good, but he’s on a short timetable to convince her.  This contemporary football romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.

Lexi Ryan did an amazing job with her character development.  Mason and Baily come from different means.  Regardless they have many similarities and make a fantastic couple.  They care about each other deeply.  Mason and Baily try to protect each other in their own way.  They both are very human and make mistakes.  They have difficult obstacles to overcome and become stronger for it.  

The plot was clever and believable.  Mason’s relationship with Gulf Gators NFL franchise owner, Bill McCombs, puts an interesting spin on the story.  Mason’s ex-girlfriend, Lindy, also creates some compelling turbulence. It amazed me what a great guy Mason turned out to be with Christian Dahl as his father.  It must have been his mother’s influence.  We discover multiple life-changing secrets that both Mason and Baily have been keeping.  I like that the story spans over four years, flashing back and forth in time.

I love this series.  Each book is extremely powerful. After reading every novel, I think there is no way that Lexi Ryan can match or top the previous story.  She has amazing done so.  If you follow the Blackhawk Boys series, you won’t want to miss this story.  If you haven’t read this series, you could probably read this book as a standalone, but I think you would enjoy it more if you read the series in order.  Every book is skillfully written and a worthwhile read.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Dirty Little Secret (Forbidden Desires Book 1) - Kendall Ryan

Emma Bell is a librarian and recently broke up with a guy who abused her.  All she wants to do is get control of her own life again.  Every day Emma goes into a coffee shop to get her usual tea order and waits until He enters...her "pretend" boyfriend!  One day he orders, looks at Emma, then drops his business card into a glass jar and leaves.  Emma takes this card to find out who he is and that's when the real fun begins.

Gavin Kingsley is President and co-owner of Forbidden Desires, a high end escort service.  He knows he shouldn't be attracted to the sweet girl he sees every day at the coffee shop, but he couldn't help it.  He left his business card hoping she would take it and make the next move.  Imagine his surprise when Emma shows up at his office!  The receptionist thinks she is there to interview for the open escort position and brings her to Gavin's office.  Gavin's brother, Cooper is also there.  Both guys are immediately drawn to her.  Gavin is dark and mysterious while Cooper is open and friendly.  Cooper knows about Gavin's past and his hidden secrets and he is very curious about his brother's obvious attraction to this girl so he sets his brother up to hire her to be their personal escort.  Of course Emma didn't come to the office for this job but she could use the money to fix up her grandma's old house so she agrees to their proposition.

The attraction between Gavin and Emma was so obvious and I just loved the way Cooper played that up, taunting his brother!  Things progress quickly between Gavin and Emma and things seem to be great until Emma finds out about Gavin's hidden secret!

This book ends on a cliffhanger and I can not wait until I get my hands on the next one!  I could not put this book down.  I just loved Emma...she was nice and sweet but she was also getting control of her life again and was a little ballsy at times.  Gavin is an alpha with a tortured soul...everything that makes for a perfect romance!  Great start to a new series!
