Fate brings Ty and Aiyla together, but will tragedy tear them apart?
 
 
 
THRILL OF LOVE
The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor, MD #6

Do you believe in fate?

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his—and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

After spending five magical days and four sweet, soulful nights falling in love, Aiyla couldn’t imagine a day without Ty. But when he asked her to go with him on his next assignment, his reputation for having women at his beck and call stopped her from upending the life she’d worked so hard to create.

Months later fate steps in when a chance encounter brings Ty and Aiyla together for a five-day wilderness event held in the Colorado Mountains. Their deep, passionate connection is stronger than ever, and Ty is bound and determined not to lose her again. But when tragedy strikes and their worlds are turned upside down, their love faces the truest test of all.
 
 
 
 
 
 
EXCERPT:
 
She sat outside her tent snacking on Tropical Heat Hot Tamales and icing her leg, wishing she and Ty had exchanged numbers so she could call and find him now.
 

“There’s my girl!” Ty’s voice boomed from across the clearing, as arrogant and appealing as ever.

 

Everyone looked up to see who he was talking about—including Aiyla—as he strutted across the dirt in a pair of dark green cargo shorts and open sweatshirt over an impossibly snug shirt. Their eyes met and sparks ignited like a wick, burning up the space between them.

 

Aiyla set the ice pack on a towel and pushed to her feet, trying desperately not to choke on her candy as her stomach dipped and flipped.

 

“Your girl?” she asked. “Presumptuous, aren’t you?”

 

His eyes took a slow stroll down her body, heating up every inch as his gaze dragged down her breasts, her stomach, all the way to her toes. She wasn’t the kind of girl who wore makeup or fussed with fancy hairstyles. And as his eyes took on an appreciative, sinful darkness, she remembered how often in Saint-Luc he’d told her she was beautiful, each time making her blush anew.

 

“Mm-mm.” His smoldering eyes were set off by his cocky grin. “Shorts and a hoodie have never looked so good.” He stepped closer, his tone turning seductive. “You smell sweet and hot. My favorite combination.”She sat outside her tent snacking on Tropical Heat Hot Tamales and icing her leg, wishing she and Ty had exchanged numbers so she could call and find him now.

Thrill of Love
Thrill of Love - Melissa Foster Thrill of Love - Melissa Foster Love is an uphill battle and this couple had to deal with more than most. Thrill of Love is a triumphant journey of pain that is at times heartwrenching but always inspiring. Ty and Aiyla will change the way you look at life, love and hope. Kleenex is a must.

The Good Sister: A twisty, dark psycholo... The Good Sister: A twisty, dark psychological thriller that will have you gripped - Jess Ryder

With thanks to Netgalley and Bookoutre for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.

 

Jess Ryder hit the ground running earlier this year with her debut novel Lie To Me.  I am so glad I was given the chance to read her second book The Good Sister.

 

Jerome Macauliffe had been receiving malicious texts from someone threatening to reveal a secret.  He decided to go out for a night time run on his motorbike but lost control and drove into a tree killing him instantly.

 

Jerome worked in Manchester as a teacher during the week and returned home to London during the weekends.  When Jerome's daughter Josie went to clear his house in Manchester he discovered Jerome had another daughter called Valentina.  Josie and Valentina look similar and Josie is only 5 days older than Valentina.  But that is where the similarity ends, Josie is responsible, has a good job and is living with her boyfriend Arun.  Valentina on the other hand is unemployed, had dubious friends and takes drugs.

 

Josie is devastated that her father had two families one in London and one in Manchester.  Josie's mother is grief stricken over Jerome and she decides not tell her about Valentina.  Valentina is manipulative and Josie is warned by Arun to keep away from her.

 

However Josie is drawn to Valentina and refuses to listen.  Slowly Valentina inveigles her way into Josie and Arun's life destroying Josie in the process.

 

The Good Sister is only 230 pages but a lot happens in those pages.  This book was a true psychological thriller that messed with my mind.  The second part of this book was fantastic.  I was hit by so many revelations it gave me concussion.  This book was told from the POV of Josie and Valentina.  If I had one criticism the chapters were not headed so you were not intially sure whose voice you were reading but you could easily tell the characters apart.

 

Brilliant storytelling, well done.

Don't Wake Up...
Don't Wake Up: A shocking and compelling new thriller that you will not be able to put down! - Liz Lawler

This was a fast read for me, in many ways your typical psychological thriller but it was superbly menacing and I give it extra points for being quite unpredictable - not necessarily on the "whodunnit" level, although Liz Lawler does a great job of obfuscating things - but more because it didn't feel at all like things would necessarily work out for our main protagonist. Did all come good in the end? Well you'll have to read to find out.

It has that addictive quality that I look for in this genre, certainly a page turner, also intensely creepy at times. Imagine you are assaulted but nobody believes you. Imagine then that at every turn you are looking more and more unbalanced but you know that you are not. That is an intriguing layer to Don't Wake Up, I also give points for the fact that the characters mostly behaved reasonably given the circumstances. If I had one bugbear it was one police officer character that was way too caricature but I won't say more because everyone reads differently

Overall Don't Wake Up is a great read, especially as a book to sit down with when you just need to read totally in the comfort zone - I have no problem recommending it to fans of this genre, whilst it may not offer anything unique, it is accomplished writing and a banging good story.

Annoyed me to death
Thrill Me to Death - Roxanne St. Claire

I read this for the Wedding Bells square for Romance Bingo and for my Series Headway selection.

The blindness of the heroine towards seeing the truth about people and facts just about killed me to death on this one. I mean, come on! The willful blindness was aggravating and only made the flaws in the murder mystery stand out more, instead of elongating the sense of danger and mystery. From the contrived anger that caused the heroine to break off her engagement with the hero to the convoluted mess that sprung from her husband's death, this felt messily plotted out.
The villain was painfully obvious and painfully ignored by heroine, the step-son drama was made a big deal of and then dropped off the face of the earth, and the connection of the bad guys was Lifetime worthy.
I liked the hero but he wasn't given much of a story to shine in. The chemistry with the heroine is definitely felt and the alone scenes they have are pretty good but the madness surrounding them put me off the story as a whole.
