Review! Dark Legacy (Dark Falls #3) Trish McCallan!



It's Hump Day, Readers! And I am sharing a thrilling romantic suspense - Dark Legacy by Trish McCallan, which is part of the Dark Falls multi author series! Enjoy and don't forget to add Dark Legacy to your shelves!







Rhys Evans

Sixteen years…
For sixteen years he’d lived with the certainty that they’d caught the right guy…convicted the right guy…punished the right guy. While life behind bars didn’t make up for what the bastard had done, the families he’d destroyed, or the lives he’d stolen, the fact he’d died a broken, lonely man locked in a cell had been a small comfort. But now Ariel Hamilton was back—the onetime love of his life and the daughter of Dark Fall’s infamous serial killer. She rolled into town with her icy smile, furious eyes and baseless accusations of police corruption. Damn it to hell, Hamilton had been the X-factor killer, he was absolutely certain of that—no matter how desperate Ariel was trying to prove him wrong.


Ariel Hamilton

Sixteen years…
For sixteen years she’d lived with the knowledge her father had been framed, and watched him waste away in prison for crimes he hadn’t committed. Nobody had believed her back then. Even Rhys, the boy she’d loved with all her heart, had walked away. It had been a hard lesson, but she’d learned it well—count on no one. Well she finally had proof of her dad’s innocence. Proof that Dark Falls police department had framed an innocent man and covered it up…were still covering it up. She wasn’t nineteen anymore, she wouldn’t be cowed and ran out of town. She’d stay and fight to clear her father’s name. Even if that meant drawing the real killer out…even if that meant making herself a target and losing a second chance with the only man she’d ever loved.




This romantic suspense is a mind blowing and thrilling read that readers can really sink their teeth into. Ariel and Rhys are strong, captivating characters that make it easy for readers to connect which in turn makes it easy for them to become completely caught up in the story. The chemistry between Rhys and Ariel sizzling with lots of electrical intensity that readers can feel leaping off the pages but it also has some strong emotional vibes flowing from the characters as well, which isn’t really surprising considering the situation these two are in. The past relationship between the hero and heroine play an integral part in the story and is the cause of a lot of the emotional turbulence which keeps the outcome of their relationship in question.


The plot is steady to fast paced and steadily builds the suspense throughout which keeps readers glued to the pages as a sixteen year old crime begins to unravel and truths are revealed. Ariel was always convinced of her dad’s innocence while others including Rhys were sure that he was the infamous serial killer. This keeps emotions in constant turmoil while surprising twists and betrayals keep readers on the edge of their seat. The story takes place in an intriguing small town which adds ambiance to the story and as more information and evidence comes to light, everyone starts to realize the far reaching consequences of ‘what if they were wrong’ which ensures that there is never a dull moment to be found in this thrilling romantic suspense.

The Sweetest Match 
by Abby Tyler

She hid secret messages in frosting, thinking no one would notice.

Andrew McCallister is the first to admit that he never got over Sandy Miller when she dropped out of high school and disappeared. But now she’s back.

He just has to get the guts to talk to her.

When the town summons the pair to a meeting to plan the school’s centennial bash, Andrew and Sandy discover they are the only two members of the committee.

Review! Reunited Lovers (Friendship Chronicles #2) Shelley Munro!



Hello, Readers! Today I am sharing Reunited Lovers - the 2nd book in the Love and Friendship series by Shelley Munro! Enjoy and don't forget to add Reunited Lovers to your shelves!







Never look back...right?


Julia Maxwell is a seize-the-moment party girl until the night she spends with up-and-coming rocker Ryan Callander. From that moment, she becomes a one-man woman. Pity he hasn’t kept with the program.


Tired of the secrets that have kept her out of the press and Ryan’s fans happy, angry with mounting evidence of infidelity, Julia is older, wiser, and determined to divorce his cheatin’ ass.


Ryan’s long European tour had more than its share of hard knocks—one of which landed on his head when he was mugged. Divorce papers waiting for him at home are a shock that fills in some of the holes in his sketchy memory. But it could be too late to salvage his marriage.


If Ryan thinks flirtatious smiles, seductive touches, and hot-and-heavy kisses are going to smooth things over, Julia’s got a hammer with his name on it. To her surprise, he calls her bluff, determined to rebuild a bright future for both of them. But the past is lurking with some missing pieces that could bring their hearts crashing down.


Warning: Contains a pissed ex-stripper turned burlesque dancer, a bunch of nosy friends and a smooth-talking rocker with one thing on his mind. Stripper poles and skimpy costumes are optional.




This Love and Friendship romance invokes strong emotions in readers as Ryan tries to win back Julia’s heart after disappearing from her life. Julia and Ryan are two strong, convincing characters that captures readers’ hearts and ensure that they want to know every last detail. The relationship is on rocky ground and due to some devastating past events which keeps Julia’s emotional turmoil at an all-time high which in return keeps readers glued to the pages and holding their breath wondering if this couple will achieve that elusive happily ever after.


The story is fast paced and full of emotional suspense with friends adding support to each of the characters and when family issues add twist to the story which add to the intense emotions of the story, as well. The interactions between the couple and friends inspire readers with their closeness, loyalty and ability to help out during a crisis and the whole turning around of the family business adds a range of effects to the romance between Julia and Ryan. It is not necessary to read the previous book in this series in order to enjoy reading this one, but this one does make readers curious about it and the next book.

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.


Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world.

Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.


While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Review! Combustible: The Complete Series (Combustible #1-4) Brandy L. Rivers
Combustible: The Complete Series - Brandy L. Rivers



So hot it’s combustible.


This crew of firefighters put their friends and families first, but haven’t found the person who sets their passion ablaze.


With mystery, suspense, determination and a fierce sense of brotherhood, these men will do anything to claim their heart's desire.



Readers experience a sense of brotherhood in this exciting, moving and heart capturing collection of books. Combustible: The Complete Series consists of four romances full of sizzling attractions, blazing hot desires and thrilling suspense all of which ignite the reader’s passions.


In Heart on Fire, Mila Day just wants one wild night but it’s not exactly what she gets. Fireman, Kyle Blake is happy alone until his heart is stolen by his new next door neighbors.


In Falling Star, Ella Cross tries to bury her on-screen persona and start fresh in a small town only she can’t resist her new neighbor, Trent Ward. Trent knows she’s running from something but between his demons and her past, he has to wonder if he will have the strength to save her from her worst nightmare.


Next up, Sweet Tooth, Isandro has a sweet tooth and a long time crush on the feisty choc0latier and Arianna is finally ready to take a chance but her ex-lover won’t take the hint.


Finally, in Backburn, a firebug is loose and old flames, Marissa Cortez and Dave Metcalf will have to pair up in order to solve the string of arsons.


This small town is full of strong, well developed and delightful characters that capture readers’ hearts as they work through their sizzling romances full of emotional turmoil and thrilling suspense. The reader certainly won’t find a dull moment as stalkers, exes, family squabbles, overbearing parents and electrical sparks flying in every direction keep readers glued to the pages of these fast paced and smooth flowing plots.


I enjoyed each and every one of the four books and found that when I finished one I couldn’t wait to start to the next one of course, that meant I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep, but it was well worth it and these sexy heroes are extremely combustible.
