CONSUMED – A J.R. Ward Review

img_2086-1

Something has to be said for the power in Ward’s books. A new branch back into the contemporary world, Consumed is not only intrigued and a standout novel, readers won’t be able to predict what will happen and become addicted to finding out the truth. I highly recommend reading the two free novellas before diving in the world of Anne and Danny. They give a sneak peek into all our characters before a moment that changes all of their lives.

Anne is the solo female in her fire squad and has always felt she’s had an axe to grind (sorry for the pun there…). Determination and pure snark have gotten her this far and it’ll take more than smart-talking, playboy Danny to sweep her off her feet. But there’s a connection between the two of them when they’re int he field. They think in unison and anticipate each others needs and movements like no one she’s ever seen. His charm may not be his dazzling smile and sexy body, it just may be his dedication to being the best firefighter the city’s ever seen. But a split decision from Anne leaves the world they know in dust as he shatters their fragile relationship with one swing of his axe.

Now, Anne isn’t your typical fire inspector; haunted with the memories of her days of a firefighter, she’s in a constant mental and physical struggle to regain her confidence. Putting those memories behind her she dives into the mysterious warehouse fires and discovers a plot that goes deeper than anyone could ever imagine. Not to mention, Danny is back on her radar and diving headfirst into self-destruction. His pain over what happened to Anne during their last fire is eating him alive. The drinking, the fighting, the sex, all a coping mechanism to escape the night terrors and the pain he caused for the woman he loved. Spending more time with brings more pain but Danny will take what he can get. But this new Anne is making more discoveries then in her investigations; Danny’s secrets come to light as Anne has to come to terms with her own past and her city’s possible corruption.

This book is FILLED with twists and turns and new angles you won’t predict. Hooked from page one I had to know what Anne and Danny’s inner thoughts were. Ward does an incredibly job taking brutal, damaged characters and pulling those flaws right into the light, shoving them in to the face of readers and shouting “ACCEPT THEM”. Anne’s struggle with being the only female in her field versus her feelings towards not only Danny but her only family’s expectations created a very complex creature. Matched against Danny’s straight up “I loved her and I lost her” attitude makes for compelling drama. Add in the crime and suspense aspect and Consumed will do it’s own namesake to readers. It’s my latest five star read, but what else would you expect from The Warden herself. I can’t wait to see where our boys go next…

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Anne Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family’s scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed…

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn’t believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again–until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN COWBOY CHRISTMAS – A Katie Ruggle Review

img_2070

Rocky Mountains are supposed to be idyllic and peaceful, which is exactly what Steve planned when he moved his four children from the chaos of their home town. A Christmas tree ranch and shop is the perfect place for them to grown up. Settled in as a fire fighter in town, Steve runs into Camille when she needs “rescued”. Except his version of a rescue is her version of hell. Camille loves her solitude and doesn’t handle being the center of attention well. Sparking his interest, Steve sees Camille in a new light and can’t fight his attraction to her. But when her life is put in danger he’s determined to keep her close.

Camille has been quite happy in her solitude and is thrown for a loop when Steve Springfield is back in town. Downsides to being a hermit is not knowing when your high-school crush moves back in to town. And running in to him in the most embarrassing situation…over and over again. The final straw: a fire burns down her home, with her in it and Steve comes to the rescue. Now in his home and around his kids, she may finally be finding her people and a way to be happy around others. If it wasn’t for the other fires that keep threatening her, she could just be happy.

Ruggle has the ability to write action and suspense romance weaved perfectly together. But I will warn readers that this romance, is a slooooow burn that is worth the wait. Steve and Camille’s chemistry is instant and incredibly charming. Steve takes all of Camille’s “quirks” in stride and his children help win her over. I honestly loved Camille’s interactions with each of Steve’s kids, each one manages to pull a new side of her out making me love her more. And just when you think that HEA is on its way, prepare for a big twist you just can’t predict.


9781492658665_fae48.jpgIn the heart of the Rockies
In the arms of a cowboy
One white Christmas can change everything.

When firefighter and single dad Steve Springfield moved his four kids to a Colorado Christmas tree ranch, he intended for it to be a safe haven. But he never expected danger to follow them to his childhood home…

Or that he would come face-to-face with the one girl he could never forget.

Folk artist Camille Brandt lives a quiet life. As the town’s resident eccentric, she’s used to being lonely–until Steve freaking Springfield changes everything. Brave and kind, he’s always had a piece of her heart, and it doesn’t take long before she’s in danger of falling for him and his rambunctious kids. But as mysterious fires break out across the sleepy Colorado town, Steve and Camille will have to fight if they want their happy family to survive until Christmas…

GOT IT BAD – A Christi Barth Review, Excerpt Reveal & Giveaway

img_1974

Barth sure saved the best for last. On the run and in Witness Protection for his brothers’ own misdeeds, Kellan has had a hard time coming to terms with being the only MacGuire brother kept in the dark. They’ve never kept secrets from each other and his brothers’ lies still weigh on his mind. To make matters worse, the girl he was entranced with turns out to be their handler from the US Marshals. Now stuck between a rock and a hard place, Kelly has decide what’s worth fighting for: family or HEA.

Delaney’s kept her head on straight her whole career. She loves helping witnesses find a new life when defending against wrong doings; she’s passionate in her field and wants to be the best. But the MacGuire brothers are testing her every patience. Moving them 5 times is bad enough, but having feelings for the one innocent brother under her protection is slightly worse, not to mention against the rules. But Kellan is charming and knows his incessant flirting gets a rise out of her every time. But when he asks for something to better protect himself and his brothers, Delaney sees the man beneath the flirty persona. He loves his family and doesn’t want to risk losing them. As they spend more time together, tensions rise and come to a head. Can they keep their passion a secret or will it tear this whole operation apart?

If you’ve read the first to MacGuire boys, you’ve more than likely been waiting to see just how Delaney and Kellan handle their fiery attraction. Any two characters that have that much fire between them are bound to explode: and whoooo do they ever. Filled with passion and stolen moments, Delaney and Kellan break all the rules to fall for one another. But there’s a twist readers won’t see coming. And some secrets will risk it all to come out. A great finale to our bad boy MacGuire Brothers!


In USA Today bestseller Christi Barth’s last Bad Boys Gone Good novel, the brother who’s always followed the rules finally gets to be a little bad.

Kellan Maguire was a semester away from becoming a lawyer when his life imploded. Now he’s in Witness Protection, hiding from the mob and mad as hell that his brothers lied to him about, oh, everything. The only bright spot in his new life is their drop-dead-gorgeous U.S. Marshal handler. Yeah, he wants to handle her… a lot.

Federal Marshal Delaney Evans has protected her fair share of dangerous criminals. But Kellan is a whole different kind of dangerous—dangerously hot, to be specific. The charming, handsome, and utterly law-abiding Maguire brother got under her skin the moment they met and the more time she spends with him, the harder it is to deny their attraction. Delaney’s willing to give Kellan one night—to get him out of her system—and then it’s over.

Except one night isn’t enough and soon they’re breaking every rule of WITSEC to be together. Kellan’s got it bad for her, but Delaney’s career, her entire life, would fall apart if anyone found out. And then the biggest complication of all hits…

Excerpt GIBCBR.png

“You have my word.”

“Great. The word of an almost lawyer,” Delaney said mockingly. “That and twelve dollars will buy me a martini.”

Then she instantly regretted pushing his buttons. It was habit. It was fun.

It was dangerous.

One thick, dark eyebrow winged up, like an arched frame around his stunning ice-blue eye. “First you call me spoiled, and now you’re insulting my near-lawyerness? If I didn’t know better, I’d say the lady doth protest too much.”

“The lady has her hands full dealing with your troublesome brothers. She doesn’t need to waste her energy constantly fending you off, too.”

“I think you do.” Kellan set his cup down.

Delaney gaped at him. Because she’d been oh-so-careful never to give away with so much as a flicker the fact the she was still interested. How could he tell something that Delaney barely admitted to herself? “You think I want to keep fending you off?”

“Yes.” Kellan stepped closer. In fact, he moved in way past what would be polite. Invaded her personal space just as much as he’d been invading her mind. “You like fighting with me. You could ignore my compliments, my flirty remarks. You don’t. You rise to the bait every time. I think you’re every bit as frustrated as I am.”

“You don’t know anything about my life outside the time I spend working on your case.” Heat flashed across her cheeks and chest. And she stepped in, too. To where the tips of her breasts brushed his chest, and her feet bumped against his. “Don’t begin to think you know me.”

“I don’t think. I know. I know that you may have been on dates since you met me.  But none of them distracted you from whatever’s simmering between us. You want to turn back the clock to the day I asked you out and follow through on it.”

“I don’t.” Her words were the verbal equivalent of a foot stamp. Then, softer, as if she didn’t mean to speak it out loud at all, Delaney said, “We can’t.”

In response, Kellan framed her face with his hands, tilted her head back more, and kissed her.

Not the light, polite, introduction kiss they’d shared the first time. Delaney had obviously pushed him past that step. Kellan kissed as if he needed her to know just how badly he wanted her. His lips worked across her mouth, moving and kneading. Kellan nipped at her wide bottom lip. It felt like punishment for her making him wait so long

It also felt like a reward for waiting so long, and she rewarded him with a tiny moan.

Delaney’s hands fisted in his thick hair, pulling and tugging. It undoubtedly showed him the insta-heat burning her up inside as much as the way her leg wrapped around his calf.

She wanted more.

His tongue teased at the seam of her lips, and Delaney opened for him like they’d already done this dance a hundred times. She tasted the sweetness lingering from his drink. Desire rocketed through her, turning her nerves to lava. From the way his penis had hardened to pure steel against her belly, Kellan felt the same.

He streaked the backs of his knuckles down the undersides of her raised arms. Kept going to just lightly brush them along the sides of her breasts, her ribs, the flare of her hips to finally land on the curve of her ass.

Kellan dug his fingers in and lifted. Just high enough to press her center against his penis. Instantly, she got on board with the position, rocking against him even as her tongue twined and teased.

It was impossible to stop the little, breathy moans that kept escaping from her. It was impossible not to undulate against his rock hard abs and dig her fingers into the sculpted muscles of his back. Kissing Kellan wasn’t foreplay. It was a sex act all by itself. Utterly satisfying even as it drove her hunger up immeasurably.

And while Delaney would’ve sworn it was impossible, he was a million times better in reality than all the ways she’d fantasized being with him over the past months. Kellan ripped his mouth away to burn a trail of kisses down the side of her neck.

A semi rolled by, and the driver honked for a long time. It had been easy to ignore the white noise of the cars passing, but the horn broke through to Delaney. It reminded her they were on the edge of a green-scummed pond, across from a strip mall. The world could see them making out. And they’d already shot way past a reasonable stopping point.

So she unwound her leg and put her foot back down on the ground. Kellan seemed to get the signal. He dialed back the intensity on his kisses and rained them up the side of her face, down her nose, to end with a light peck on her mouth before easing back. Then he moved his hands to her shoulders.

It took a moment for her eyes to re-open. When they did, it took another moment before Delaney fully focused on him.

“Not only can we kiss,” Kellan said with enough authority to make her realize he wouldn’t allow her to pretend this hadn’t happened. To pretend that she hadn’t just climbed him like a tree and responded with a fervor that matched his own. “We’re absolutely doing it again.”

THROUGH THE FIRE – A Katie Ruggle Review

img_1839

Back in the quiet (but recently not so much quiet) town of Monroe, the past is about to come to a head. Kit is the newest K9 officer and she’s lucky enough to have her K9 partner, a tracking bloodhound, right when a series of arson cases pop up in Monroe. The towns experienced murder, betrayal, and bombs…what’s some more crime?

Suspicious of her new department despite her best efforts, Kit is independent in her own search for the truth. Alongside her bloodhound, she encounters one stoney but surprisingly nerdy watchtower foremen, Wes. Particular in his ways and insanely smart, the two strike up a relationship as town outsiders. But Kit has more than a new town and a new man to overcome. The interloper lighting all of the fires seems to be coming for her, and it’ll take someone brave enough to the face the flames to fight this foe.

While I loved the other RM K9 novels, Kit’s story was tough for me at first. There’s a lot of characters from the first three that are thrown at her and readers right in the beginning. Sometimes I found it hard to follow or catch up to what was going on. However, I LOVED Kit and Wes’s interactions. The quiet mountain man who loves his solitude finding solace in a woman…#swoon. While the story is more on what’s happening to the town of Monroe and it’s new residents rather than a love story, it’s still highly entertaining. I wanted more Kit and Wes but definitely got plenty of them with some PG interaction. All in all, a fun addition to this suspense/action romance that’s kept up the action and was certainly never boring!


Through_the_Fire.png

He’s tall.
He’s dark.
He’s brutally handsome…
And he may be her only hope.

Kit Jernigan despairs of ever fitting in with her new tight-knit K9 unit—they’ve been through too much to welcome a stranger. So when a killer strikes, it’s a fight to convince her fellow officers to trust her long enough to catch the woman she knows is responsible.

She can’t do it on her own. What she needs most is a partner: local fire spotter Wesley March.

Wes knows in his heart that Kit is right, and he’s willing to leave his lonely tower to help her prove it. But the more time they spend together, the hotter the fire smolders…and the more danger they’re in. A member of the K9 unit’s inner circle is determined to have her revenge—no matter who gets burned in the process.

This time, it’s personal.

OFF THE GRID – A Monica McCarty Review

Danger. Intrigue. Suspense. ROMANCE! McCarty’s next Lost Platoon novel has all that and MORE! Brittany went in to investigative reporting for a reason, the death of her parents and the supposed cover-up of who killed them. Now the disappearance and hush-hush attitude about her SEAL brother weighs heavily in her mind. She knows she has to take any action to find out the truth.

John’s living a life of secrecy on Finland. One of six survivors from his platoon he’s got to keep his identity under wraps until their leader can suss out who tried to kill them…and why. It was going easy for a few months of numbinginly drinking and exploring the wilds. When his lost platoon brother’s sister begins sniffing around their disappearance he has to take extreme measures. But a contingency he hadn’t planned for soon bubbles up. Brittany’s grown into a striking woman and John may have finally found something that shakes his calm demeanor.

I’m categorizing this as a second chance romance. John knew Brittany five years before his platoon’s destruction. Back then she had been in a rough place with the supposed loss of her career and he found himself caring for her immediately. Now these two come face to face and battle it out as John fights to protect his secrets and Brittany fights for her family and the truth. McCarty does a fantastic job keeping action going on every page. Whether its investigating, running, or fighting these two are always up to something and I couldn’t put this book down!

I feel as if every action/suspense romance I pickup has the tendency to get redundant but I’m so glad the McCarty keeps it fresh and inventive as her world takes crazy twists and turns. I could very easily see this being made into a movie! There’s also a side story about Colt, Kate, and Taylor… OMG I was HOOKED on it and I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book! Wonderful world building, powerful characters, and never a dull moment!


9780399587726_OfftheGrid-558x900

A hunt for dangerous secrets leads to explosive chemistry in this exhilarating romantic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Going Dark.

A team of Navy SEALs go on a mission and disappear without a trace—they are The Lost Platoon.

Investigative reporter BRITTANY BLAKE may have stumbled upon the story of a lifetime in her search for her missing brother. When he seemingly disappears overnight, she refuses to accept the Navy’s less-than-satisfying explanation. She begins her own investigation, which leads her to top-secret SEAL teams, covert ops, and a possible cover up…

JOHN DONOVAN is having trouble biding his time, waiting for his Commanding Officer to figure out who set up their platoon. John’s best friend and BUD/S partner, Brandon Blake, was one of the many lives tragically lost in the attack against his team. When Brandon’s sister, Brittany, tracks John down, looking for answers, he realizes that she may be their best bet–or bait–for finding out who is targeting SEAL Team Nine.

BUILT TO LAST – A Julie Ann Walker Review

img_1296

I am not ready for my BKI boys to me over! I know I know…these stories live on outside of these books. But no more action packed BKI heroes is a tough ill to swallow. I’ve been reading them from the start and Walker always manages to paint such bad-ass heroes. Good thing she saved the baddest of them all for the finale; Angel Agassi. The Iceman. The man without emotions…or so we thought!

BKI has been hunting the infamous Spider for months and are sure they’ve discovered his true identity when a ghost from Angel’s past haunts the screen beside the Spider. Sonya was an agent Angel dealt with in another life. He fell for her, but in order to stay true to his beliefs in protecting his people, he had to give up everything, including Sonya. Now under the Spider’s roof he has to feign indifference as her very image is right before him and her scent is jut as tempting as it was years before. But he wears a different face now and even the woman of his dreams doesn’t recognize him. Its a tough desire to defeat, but Angel can’t jeopardize this mission and risk the lives of thousands all for a shot at forever with Sonya.

Sonya is intrigued by the Prince of Shadow, aka Angel. After spending days with him she’s reminded of Mark, her past love, in his mannerisms and even some of his tells. But the man she loved is dead and the monster in his place is cold and distant. Until one night and one kiss sparks a memory… Now on the run these two have to decide who to trust and where to turn as lies become truth and secrets come to light. Filled with non-stop action, Walker knocks it out of the park with this finale! Angel has always been stone cold and mysterious and watching Sonya slowly crack his shell an reveal the loving man inside was so perfect!

The sides story of Ace and Rusty was so swoony! I really wanted these two to have their own book. There’s something about argumentative couples that just makes the book a lot more interesting and hilarious. Having Ozzie there to break their sexual tension was hysterical! In the end, a sneak peek into all of the BKI crews live and futures was a beautiful send off to this amazing action romance series from one of by auto-buy authors. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!


51PJCcF4pSL._SX302_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

In the epic conclusion to the BKI series, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker delivers her biggest bombshell yet!

Welcome to Black Knights Inc.

What appears to be a tricked-out motorcycle shop on the North Side of Chicago is actually headquarters for the world’s most elite covert operatives. Deadly, dangerous, and determined, they’ll steal your breath and your heart.

After a mission-gone-sideways forces Jamin “Angel” Agassi to change his identity, he’s determined to bring down the world’s worst crime syndicate kingpin once and for all. That’s going to be the easy part. Keeping Interpol agent Sonya Butler from discovering who he really is—and blazing another trail into his heart—is the challenge.

Julie.png Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Julie grew up in a house full of women – she has three older sisters. As you can imagine, there was no lack of drama… or romance. Her mother enrolled her in a book club as soon as she began to read and it was the small spark that ignited her voracious appetite for the written word. Because of Julie’s early immersion in literature, she found writing came quite naturally. In high school, she won multiple writing contests and was the proud senior editor of The Tiger’s Tale – her school newspaper. During her college years, however, she longed for a challenge. “Reading and writing felt like second nature to me, so I looked for a way to flex my mental muscles,” she recalls. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree, Julie began teaching advanced high school mathematics. “I loved working with the students and facing the challenges of the classroom, but I longed for the occasional snow day when I could race to the local book store, buy two or three new novels, and curl up in front of the fire to read.” It wasn’t until a fortuitous move to Chicago that Julie once more returned to her first passion. “Thankfully, my husband – my own personal hero – encouraged my decision to write full time.” Now Julie lives on beautiful Lake Shore Drive with a view that sometimes competes with her deadlines. When she’s not writing, she enjoys camping, hiking, cycling, cooking, travel, and…reading, of course!

But when someone takes a shot at her, he knows there’s a good chance what happens in Vegas won’t stay there. With targets on their backs and killers on their tails, it’s one high-risk game they’re playing. And it’s not just their hearts that are on the line . . .
