Synopsis:

Everyone loves Jack Holland, but Emmaline Neal needs him. Her ex-fiancé is getting married in Malibu and, obviously, she can’t go to the wedding alone. In Manningsport, New York, tall, blond and gorgeous Jack Holland is practically a cottage industry when it comes to rescuing desperate women. He knows the drill, Em figures, so he won’t get the wrong idea.

What Jack needs is an excuse to leave town. Ever since rescuing four teenagers from a car wreck, he’s been hailed as a hero and the attention is making him itchy, especially since his too-pretty ex-wife is back, angling for a reunion. He’s always liked Emmaline. She needs a weekend date? No problem.

So when they wind up in bed together, Em chalks it up to red wine and chocolate cake, just one impulsive night not to be repeated. But Jack’s pushing for more, and if she lets down her guard, either she’ll get her heart crushed again, or discover that Jack’s worth more than just dreaming about.

Review:

Don’t you just hate it when your real life intrudes on your precious reading time? Well I got to admit I wish the kids could have made their dinner when I was reading In Your Dreams cause I just did not want to put this book down. This story made me laugh, it made me cry and it totally got me out of my reading slump.

Emmaline is one of those characters that is just normal and relatable. I just get her and I like her because she sounds like someone I would be friends with in real life. Then we have Jack who in one word is awesome. He may look perfect but he has issues that just endear him to me even more.

In Your Dreams is the fourth book in the Blue Heron series. Yes, this book can easily be read as a standalone. Unfortunately as soon as you finish it you will be jumping through hoops to pick up the first three books in the series. Ms. Higgins is a delightfully entertaining author and I look forward to reading whatever she has coming out next!

Review: Broken by Laura Wright

Broken (The Cavanaugh Brothers, #2)

Broken (The Cavanaugh Brothers #2) by Laura Wright

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis:

The Cavanaugh brothers left behind River Black, Texas, long ago. But after their father dies, bequeathing them the Triple C, a cattle ranch that sustains their small town, they return—and confront the painful memories of their childhood home and the truth about their sister’s murder…

For years, James Cavanaugh has traveled the world as a horse whisperer, but even the millions he’s earned hasn’t healed the pain he hides behind his stoic exterior. Forced to tackle old demons at the ranch, James throws himself into work to avoid his true feelings. Until he meets a woman who shakes the foundations of his well-built walls…

Sheridan O’Neil’s quiet confidence has served her well, except when it comes to romance. Tired of rejection, she’s ready to swear off men. But after being rescued from a horse stampede by the most beautiful cowboy she’s ever met, her resolve wavers. Only, as Sheridan uncovers James’s belief that no woman is safe with him, she wonders if such a wounded man could ever give in to love, or if some hearts are too broken to be healed…

Review:

Sigh. Well Broken turned out to be as good as I had hoped it would be. I have become such a fan of this series and I love how each book has left me wanting more…

James Cavanaugh is the hero of this book. He has a gift and a love for horse and Hollywood is knocking on his door. But he isn’t interested right now; he has enough on his plate. His family is still trying to find out who murdered his sister and each passing day there seems to be clues popping up. Then there is Sheridan O’Neil who just may be the reason this cowboy opens his heart up to love again.

Broken is the second book in the The Cavanaugh Brothers series. Do yourself a huge favor and read the first book before reading this one. You will be so glad you did! This has become one of my favorite series which is surprising because I am usually not a fan of mysteries. The blend between romance and mystery makes these books stand out for me as some of the most entertaining ones I have read this year. It goes without saying that I am looking forward to the next book, Brash, coming out March 2015.

Review: Mistletoe on Main Street by Olivia Miles

Mistletoe on Main Street (Briar Creek, #1)

Mistletoe on Main Street (Briar Creek #1) by Olivia Miles

Published: September 30th 2014

Purchase: Amazon

Add to Goodreads

Synopsis:

Sleigh bells, snow, and second chances . . .

 

Briar Creek’s quaint shop windows, cozy homes nestled in snow, and neighborly residents are what Christmas dreams are made of–for everyone except Grace Madison. She left her hometown years ago to pursue a writing career. But when her father’s death leaves his bookstore empty, Grace must return to face why she fled Vermont in the first place: Luke Hastings, who still heats her up like a shot of smoky whiskey on a cold winter’s night.

Grace is back, and Luke is worried. How much has she changed as a bestselling author in the big city? What memories will she stir up? And was the choice he made five years ago the biggest mistake of his life?

Now, with their past, present, and future rocking around the Christmas tree, it’s time for Grace and Luke to face the music . . . and the mistletoe.

Review:

I swear I had no idea when I started reading Mistletoe on Main Street that it was a widower romance. If I had I wouldn’t have probably passed on it. Unfortunately it is and for that reason it took me a whole week to finish reading it. If you know me, that is not my normal at all. It usually takes me a day and a half at the most to finish a book this size. But the whole widower story really put me off, especially as I got deeper and deeper into the story.

I was not impressed with Luke at all. The decisions he made and they way he treated Grace really put me off. I honestly didn’t see his appeal at all.

Other than that this is a good story about three sisters who are grieving the loss of their father at Christmas time. Each of them obviously has their own story to tell and this one was Grace’s. Even though I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I had hoped to I think I will check out the next in the series. I am curious as to what will happen in Grace’s sister’s lives.

Love is deceptive…
Fiery Billie Black thought she knew all she needed to know about her own sexuality, but that was before one night of animalistic passion with the ultra gorgeous and mysterious Jaron Rose. Tall, blond, charming and wealthy, he was the epitome of an Alpha male.
In the morning he promised he would call. He didn’t.

Suddenly, all the feelings that burned so intensely are reignited and she finds herself becoming quickly entangled with her enigmatic lover.

Billie is about to find out what that is…

Synopsis:

Savannah Cavenaugh became a top art thief thanks to a secret ability—a dragonmorph, she can literally fly away from the scene of the crime. Next up: stealing a priceless painting out from under the snout of Lord Relobu, North America’s fearsome dragon ruler. True, she’s never had to work in the midst of Earth’s most polarizing wedding before. Keeping her true identity hidden will demand she get creative, to say the least.

Cameron Shaw has one last chance to prove himself. As Lord Relobu’s interim head of security, he needs to ensure the world’s very first interspecies wedding happens without a hitch. That means keeping an extra close eye on the wedding planner’s pretty young assistant. She’s adorable, but something’s not quite right…

Fumbling her way around bouquets and linens turns out to be the least of Savannah’s problems. Crushing on Relobu’s hottest human henchman was not part of the plan, and neither was revealing her—achem—ferocious side. But when her archrival shows up to nab the very same painting she’s after, all bets are off…

I have really enjoyed this series so far and I am so looking forward to reading this one!
