After taking an impromptu vacation to her family’s cabin on the lake, she soon discovers the truth about Cain when he shows up injured in her backyard.

I loved this short story, and I’m extreamly happy with the ending.

He’s everything I’ve ever wanted, and he’s completely forbidden. I’ve been in love with my dad’s best friend since I turned five. He gave me a tiara and called me his little princess. Except, I don’t want to be his princess anymore. I want to be his queen. I’ve taken a job at the sheriff’s department, just to be under his nose. I’ll wear my shortest skirts and my tightest shirts, and I will do whatever it damn well takes to get the sexy sheriff to notice me. Interoffice romance is frowned upon, but some rules are made to be broken.

Oh holy hell what a book!!

Jilly has been in love with Joshua since she was five years old, and told her mother that she would marry him one day. After being away for college, Jilly returns home and applies for a position within the local police station.

Holy hell sparks fly when Joshua sees her bent over in the floor picking up pens. Without much of a conversation he gets her in his office, on his desk and under him.

I loved the whole older man younger women love, and the instant connection they shared.

It is however the first time I’ve actually disliked a character name
Melanie lol

I can’t wait to read or listen to the next book in the series.

Oh man what a fantastic book.

After arriving late for a job interview Natasha is soon thrown into a world of fun fights, a stolen antiques wring and death.

How much should one women have to suffer through to be with the one she truly loves. Well for Natasha she literally had to go through hell to finally be with Chase, but in the end it was all worth it.

Loved the book, and the narrator did an amazing job giving all of the characters a voice of there own!!

"And they lived happily ever after." In fairy tales, that's always how things end. The prince and princess ride away on his white horse and from then on, all's right with the world. But what if it wasn't? What if the prince's life didn't suit the princess? What if she felt stifled by life inside the castle walls? Could she tell him? And if she loved him - really loved him - how could she ask him to give up his kingdom?

This is the third book in the Blaze Of Glory Series, and all I can say right now is what a way to end a book, but I don’t think I’ve gasped and swore so much when listening to a book. Even my 10 year old was asking what was wrong with me... yeah she wasn’t amused when I told her why I was swearing at the top of my lungs lol

I love hearing the end of Jaden and Tea’s story, even though I’m secretly hoping that there will be more coming about them. We need a happy ending for Julia after all, especially after the nightmare she has gone through.

And Jayden... oh how I love that man, but he seems to have a hard time trusting Tea. Y’all remember Charlie right? Ya know from the club, when Tea first tried E... yeah well he’s back, but not in the way you all think. Oh, I was a little baffled as to how Jayden treated Tea after that email catastrophe, but seriously the girl was a tad loopy on meds and it all came out wrong. And she did try calling him to explain what was going on.

I’m glad it all worked out in the end though. I am a sucker for a happy ending, and I want, no I need to hear more from these fun loving characters, they’ve all grown on me and I love them all like family.

I loved learning about the beginning of this wonderful series. It was definitely worth the listen, and it amazes me how it all began. We even get to see how Tea and Jaden first meet.

Elina was most definitely the love of Decks life and we got to see a somewhat softer side of the man he truly is.

This is Ethel first book I’ve ever read or listened to by Dawn Brower and I must say that I was not disappointed at all.

We first meet Emma a beautiful young women, with a slightly troubled past. You see Emma was engaged to a man she was hopelessly in love with, but when another women steps in and claimed to be pregnant with Colts baby, Emma’s heart was ripped out of her chest. She tried to get over Colt in time, giving up her dream job just to avoid being around him. But when the opportunity arises again Emma jumps at the chance to do what she lives.

Can Emma withstand all of her feelings of love for Colt, can she leave the past where it belongs or will her heart get broken all over again.

I loved the book, and can’t wait to see what the rest or this series has in store. I hope to see more of Ian as well, he seems like such a nice young man, and well he did do that one thing that saved... oh just read the book and see what happens.

When 19-year-old Lucy Whitman's best guy friend of 10 years admits he’s part of a community with an “open-door policy” on sex, Lucy is intrigued. She’s always wanted Rylan with a fierceness bordering on obsession. Getting him to agree to take her may be her only shot at having him in her bed, but Rylan’s reluctant agreement comes with three stipulations. One: She can’t tell anyone. Two: She’ll have to be okay with him being her main partner, even if it’s completely weird for them both. Three: She has to do anything he tells her to - no questions asked.

Life’s all about taking risks, but for Haley Rosewood risks aren’t worth it pain, after all she’s a single mom to a teenage daughter and she works her ass off to support then both.
But a chance encounter with a hot stranger has her wondering if she should take the risk of dating him.

This book was just wow!! The love they have for each other shines through. Even the twist there in book three was a good one. I’m just glad everything worked out in the end.
