The Bitter Side of Sweet
The Bitter Side of Sweet - Tara Sullivan
Amadou and Seydou are cutting the pods from the cacao trees, for this has been their job for more than two years. They must make their quote for the day or endure their punishment for failing. Amadou takes care of his eight-year-old brother Seydou, the responsibility sometimes overwhelming for the fifteen-year-old. They’re just waiting for the day that their debt is paid off, for Amadou feels that, when that day arrives they will be allowed to return home to their parents. Day in and day out, the boys in this camp collect the pods that will later be sold. Their bosses getting paid for the work that these young children have accomplished. The boys get an interesting addition to their group when Khadija is brought into the camp. A girl, and a wild one at that! Khadija puts up an amazing fight as she doesn’t want to work at this camp and she longs to be free. I enjoyed her determination and spirit. While others watched, she was able to stay strong and fight for what she wanted. While most of the boys in the camp see Khadija as a female, Amadou and Seydou start to see her as something else.
 
I enjoyed the hostility between Amadou and Khadija as they began to interact with each other and then watched, as their relationship turns into something greater. As the drama begins to intensify, the novel moves along quickly. I enjoyed this novel until the very end. To think that young child must work in these conditions daily upset me, for them to dream of their freedom when in reality their work will never be done.

Secrets at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers) by Addison Cole
Secrets at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Secrets) - Addison Cole

 

A love that's lost can be reborn.  Just ask Tony and Amy.  Secrets at Seaside is a haunting tale of tragedy, triumph and second chances.  Attraction brought together the star surfer and the shy girl next door, but heartbreaking secrets and mistrustful feelings tanked their chance at a real and everlasting love.  Will the glow of the summer sun, provide the perfect backdrop for a new beginning complete with a happy ending?  The hallmark of a good romance are the moments to cherish from beginning to end. Heat has nothing on heart. Ms. Cole made sure to deliver an equal amount of both.

Review: Wild & Sweet (Haven Brotherhood #2) by Rhenna Morgan
Wild & Sweet - Rhenna Morgan
 Wild & Sweet

Haven Brotherhood #2

Contemporary Romance

Bought

 

Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society's expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other's backs.

 

Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problem leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood—the group of men he calls family—an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.

 

Mechanic Gabrielle Parker prefers the complexities of an engine over men. Her life wasn't always quiet and well-ordered, but now that it is, she finds peace in the solitude. When a robbery in her neighborhood forces her out of her safe bubble, she never fathoms that a dangerous, cocky trauma doctor will fix more than her injuries.

 

Zeke doesn't play by the rules that Gabrielle follows but knows that he's exactly what she needs in her life. He'll show her the fierce and uncompromising protection that comes from belonging to a man like him.

 

When tension outside the Brotherhood threatens Gabrielle, Zeke will do anything to keep her safe, and damn the consequences. No one will hurt his woman, even if it means putting the very men who saved his life at risk.

OMG I have a new favorite series. Contemporary Romance is not my typical read or one I fall for, but WOW have the Haven Boys hooked me.

 

After finishing book one, Rough & Tumble, I new I was going to continue the series. I went out and bought book two, Wild & Sweet. I couldn’t resist buying. And, so after finished book two, I bought three, Claim & Protect. Do you see what’s happening? Ms. Morgan has acquired a fan and one who will be complete the collection for the Haven Brotherhood series as they come out. Now let’s get to the novel.

 

Zeke, oh my darling doctor. He is so sweet, understand, and patient with Gabrielle. It was so endearing to see how wonderful he was with Gabe. I loved that he has a plan. How he takes his time, notices when she’s having trouble in certain environments and situations, and then he helps to make it easier for her.

 

Gabrielle is the adorable in a tomboy/girl next door way. She’s got some issues and one is anxiety. It’s affect her life in a big way. I like how the author incorporated this issue into her character and how it was talked about. Haveing anxiety is tough and many people can relate, so when Zeke shows up and doesn’t give up on her, but helps. It truly is sensational and will melt your heart.

 

Their romances was so wonderful. Little by little Zeke breaks her down and helps Gabe to blossom and in the process Zeke finds the calm and quiet he’s been searching for.

 

Besides the romance we have a little action suspense when things in Danny and Gabe’s neighborhood start to happen.

 

This novel is swoon worthy. It’s emotional, captivating, and heartfelt. I highly recommend picking up this series.

 

Rated: 5 Stars

good story and characters
Sweet Reality - Laura Heffernan

Jen had left the reality show early and taken a sure prize and Justin followed after her. It’s a year later and Justin and Jen are in a full romance now and happy. Jan plans on using her winners from the reality show to  invest in a bakery with Justin’s sister Madison who is now Jen’s best friend.Madison and Jen were showcasing a lot of the deserts that had been on the reality show. The name of their bakery was Sweet Reality. Then a rival bakery opened up across the street from Sweet Reality and Jen needs a special ingredient to pull out in front of the other bakery.   Then Jen and Justin are contacted by the network and offered an all expense week long cruise for previous reality t v stars. Jen and Justin thought that was just what they needed. Ariana had been Jen’s nemesis and had claimed Justin as her own even if it wasn’t true while they were on The FishBowl. Now she was also going to be on the cruise. Jen’s ex cheating boyfriend Dominick  had also been on the show and was going on the cruise.

I loved this book. I loved how the author brought back a lot of the characters from the first book. I do advise you read the first book first if possible as it will give you the background you need for everything to come together. In this story there was: drama, humor, romance, betrayal. conflict, tension, and a lot more. This book has a great plot and is fast paced. The was a second plot that was depressing and I felt that really wasn’t needed  not as sad as it was anyway. There was a lot of twists and turns in this story. This was basically a fun read. I was laughing out loud at times. Even with the subplot I really liked this book. I loved the characters and the twists and turns and I recommend.
