NBTM, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Second Chance in Laguna by Claire Marti
Second Chance in Laguna - Claire Marti

When Sophie Barnes’s fiancé jilts her at the altar, her carefully planned life implodes. Considering her ex’s betrayal to be a rude wake-up call, she leaves everything she knows in San Diego and flees to Laguna Beach. She vows to transform her life by avoiding men for a year and by fulfilling her dream of writing a wildly successful novel. 

 

Sophie’s new landlord, Nicholas Morgan, is a gorgeous, successful architect with a player reputation. He makes it tough for Sophie to remember that she’s sworn to be single. Nick’s avoided the intimacy of a long-term relationship--until Sophie’s independence, courage, and beauty touch his guarded heart. Both Sophie and Nick are terrified of being hurt again, but can they resist the pull of true love?

Arc Review: Resurrection (Redemption Harbor Series #1) by Katie Reus
Resurrection (Redemption Harbor Series Book 1) (Volume 1) - Katie Reus
Action-packed, romance-filled, and riveting to say the least; this story will grab you from page one! 

CIA agent Skye fakes her own death to protect her partner and lover Colt Stuart and all those he holds dear. She’s never stopped loving him and knows she hurt him deep but she’s also sure what she did was for the best. When a dear friend of Colt is kidnapped she sees her rescuing as an opportunity to somewhat make it up to him, and although he might never know it was she who rescue his friend, she still goes for it. What she didn’t account for was that Colt would find out she didn’t die and once he did he wouldn’t let her go ever again. Not only that but he would go to extremes to protect her and never have to lose her again. 

OMG! This story! To me it had one of the best opening convos ever! It was funny while setting the pace for what was coming. Sky was one of the most assertive, self-confident, witty, and cool heroines I’ve ever read. Kudos to the author for giving me such an awesome character. Colt is your typical self-assured and overprotective alpha CIA agent that will do anything to protect those he loves (and I mean AN-NY-THING), however what’s great about his relationship with Skye is that he sure as hell knows Skye’s boundaries and as the gracious and romantic lover he is, he also knows how to make her feel safe and cared for. 

The dynamics between the friends was heartwarming and was pulling my heart strings at every corner. As a reader I could feel how much they really cared for each other. Once the “mission” is officially over we are immediately introduced to the next one and luckily we don’t have to wait too long as the second installment will be out within the next few months. This story was the perfect introduction to the series and if it’s any indication of what the whole series will be then we sure are in for a heck of a ride.

I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.

Second Chance by Suzanne Jenkins
Second Chance: Pam of Babylon #15 - Suzanne Jenkins
 
 
 
Second Chance
Pam of Babylon series, book 15
by Suzanne Jenkins
<!--more-->
 

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Women's Fiction

 

Just when life settles down to a dull roar for those people whom Pam holds closest to her heart, the pendulum swings in the opposite direction and everyone is tossed into the air. Who will they hold on to as they fall back to earth?
 
Gladys finds the son she gave up at birth forty years ago; he's a single firefighter on Staten Island. At their first meeting, he sees Pam's beautiful daughter, Lisa. Will it be love at first sight? His appearance at the beach coincides with a long laundry list of drama involving Ryan and Maggie Lily, Alison and Ryan.
 
Who isn’t going a little crazy? Even Dan and Julie, who maintain the most peaceful existence, have a little fire lit under them when Julie’s sister, Angela brings Tamara home for a sleep over.
 
Cara is offered an ultimatum, and she doesn’t like the choices. But when she takes Lisa’s advice, and chooses what will be best for her son, something wonderful happens.
 
Pam and Randy take a trip to his cabin out west with sensational consequences.
 
Big Ed leaves Gladys, his wife of almost forty years for Melody. The unexpected? Gladys falls into the arms of the eligible bachelor, Dave, owner of Organic Bonanza. Will it be a case of I'd don't want her, you can't have her?
 
Sandra starts up an unusual relationship with her late ex's ex-wife. But history might repeat itself; Sandra can not be trusted.
 
July. Fire House A-89, in the northeast corner of Staten Island. Early Saturday morning, as the sun rose, fire fighter Dale McGuire stripped off turnout gear and hung it to air out on a hook on the outside of his locker. Coming in from a call for a small brush fire at the side of the highway right before the Verrazano Bridge entrance, Dale looked forward to coffee, something to eat, and bed for a nap, in that order.
 
Grabbing a towel, he walked to the shower, whistling.
 
“McGuire is happy this morning,” his colleague, Paul shouted, coming on his shift
 
“Yeah, because he gets to go home,” another firefighter called out.
 
Chuckling, Dale nodded. Life was so peaceful, if it weren’t for the fires he fought, the lives occasionally rescued, he’d have to consider getting a hobby just to prevent boredom from setting in. Mind a blank as he lathered up, he thought of getting home to his dog, Tilly. She’d be on the back of the couch, waiting for him.
 
“Jesus buddy, I’m embarrassed to strip in front of you,” Paul said, pointing to Dale returning from the shower. “Look at this guy’s abs.”
 
Quickly pulling his towel up higher, Dale laughed. “You’re not my type,” he said over the hilarity. “I won’t watch you if it’ll help.”
 
Locker room banter took some of the pain the exhaustion the night shift firefighters experienced away. “See you Monday,” Dale said when he was dressed, grabbing his duffle bag.
 
He lived in the house his late parents’ left him on Todt Hill, within walking distance to the firehouse. Volunteering there during high school, he bypassed college, much to his parents’ chagrin, and took a full time position as a firefighter rather than go away to his father’s alma mater in Philadelphia.
 
“It’s an honorable position, Douglas,” his mother had said in Dale’s defense. “Don’t make yourself sick with disappointment.”
 
“I wanted our son to follow in my footsteps. A McGuire at Penn is a tradition.”
 
Twenty years later, they were both dead, a fatal car wreck snuffing out the lives of Dale’s favorite people. Walking up the hill, he glanced up at the imposing structure in the bright morning sun. It was a grand house, but too big for a single man approaching middle-age.
 
Parents gone almost three years, he’d taken over the house as his own and couldn’t imagine anyone else living there with him. The scariest part of that; he knew he was becoming so set in his ways that if he didn’t fall in love soon, it might be too late. Feeling a sense of impending adventure in there air, there was definitely excitement looming. Hold it together, buddy, he told himself. You probably just need sleep.

Great read!
Second Burn Cowboy (Second Chance Cowboy... Second Burn Cowboy (Second Chance Cowboy Book 6) - Rhonda Lee Carver

Second Burn Cowboy by Rhonda Lee Carver is a great read.  Ms Carver has delivered a well-written book.  I adore the characters, they are perfect for this story.  Deckland and Elsa's tale is a fast-paced read.  There is plenty of drama, action, humor and sexy bits to keep readers engaged in this book.  I enjoyed reading Second Burn Cowboy and look forward to reading more from Rhonda Lee Carver in the future.  Second Burn Cowboy is book 6 in the Second Chance Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an InstaFreebie copy of this book.
