Seaside Nights Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE!  SEASIDE SUMMERS BOOK #5
Voted Beck Valley Books Reviewers Favorite Mini Series from the Love in Bloom Series 

SEASIDE SUMMERS joins the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.

SEASIDE NIGHTS 
Fall in love with Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass in Seaside Nights, the fifth book in the Seaside Summers series!

Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She’s happy as can be, preparing the shop for its grand opening and renting a cottage in the Seaside community while renovations to her new apartment are being completed. The only thing missing is the one thing she longs for, and has no control over—love.

Sawyer Bass, a professional boxer, plays his guitar at a local bar to escape the painful reality of his father’s deteriorating health and a recent health warning of his own. But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the window, and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song—and maybe even the rest of his life.

When Sawyer walks into Sky’s tattoo shop and sees the woman from the bar—Sky—the chemistry between them is instant. Sawyer is everything Sky could ever hope for in a man. He’s honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile—but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle—only the battle she thinks he’s waging isn’t the one that threatens to tear them apart.

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My thoughts:

Sky Lacroux has been through a lot in her life, with the death of her mother and her father's alcoholism. Sky is finally getting her feet under her and her life on track. She's purchased her own tattoo parlor and is staying at one the Seaside cottages until the renovations on her apartment are complete.

Sky is a very sensitive soul, who has been VERY protected by her brothers through her life. So when she meets a soulful singer and songwriter, Sawyer Bass seems like the perfect man for Sky. Until she finds out he's a professional boxer. Sky can't believe that her cat would kill a mouse, let alone one human fighting another. Is Sawyer's boxing a deal-breaker?

I love getting updates on the Seaside gang (and their pregnancies!) and I love the updates to the pranks between Bella and Theresa. The group at Seaside is such an amazing group of friends, and the addition of their loved ones makes their stories so much better!

While I love all of Melissa Foster's books, this story is one of my favorites. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Laguna Nights Book Review and Giveaway



New Release....
Madison Alcott was back in her hometown, caring for her sick mom and working long hours at the best resort in Laguna Beach. She never imagined she'd return to the place where she became famous on the hit reality TV show Laguna Nights, and the place where she was humiliated on national television. Fortunately, the past had stayed tucked away until her old high school boyfriend appeared in the lobby.

Josh Welsh was a superstar by age eighteen, the bad boy break-out star of Laguna Nights. Since then, his star had lost its shine and he barely was holding onto his Hollywood status. When he was asked to host a new reality travel show, he jumped at the chance. The only problem was the first episode was shooting in Laguna Beach. Of all the reasons Josh didn't want to return home, he hadn't even imagined the worst scenario: running into Madison "Holly" Alcott.

Josh's connection to Madison was still as strong as her anger at his betrayal. When the new reality series forces them together, they must face Laguna Nights past and present, and navigate a journey where nothing is as it seems.

My thoughts:

Madison and Josh had a magical love story with a horrible ending in high school, with the whole world (at least those that watch reality TV) watching. Since then, Madison has traveled the world and moved back to her hometown to take care of her sick mother. Josh has struggled in Hollywood and has become a washed up actor. So when Josh has a chance to star in a new travel TV show, he jumps at the chance, even though it takes him back to Laguna Beach.

Little did he know that he would run into Madison, and their past would be pushed front and center again, with a new reality TV show. Can Madison get over her feelings of betrayal and see Josh as the boy he was? Do these two former lovers have a chance at happiness?

I love Ms. Rouda's storytelling, and the reality TV twist is a very fun one. It definitely made me happy to never be on a reality TV show! I also loved meeting a lot of the peripheral characters, and I'm looking forward to reading those stories in the future.

Booker: Blood Ring Book Review and Giveaway


New Release....

Her dimpled smile and alluring gaze wouldn’t work this time. Neither would her charm, curves, and effervescent youth--qualities that had always kept her moving in all the right circles. The high life.

Not this time. This time was terrifyingly different.

Shackled by her own regrets and the hell delivered by her captors, she struggles to find a sliver of hope where there is none. Time ticks . . .

Having made a name for himself in just a few short months as a Dallas PI, Booker T. Adams yanks the brake on everything once the sister of his business partner and friend, Alisa Lopes, goes missing.

Meanwhile, a family grieves for the loss of their child, another teen who thought she could have it all. Hired to find her killer, Booker treads through a layer of slime, trying to uncover who could be preying on a generation blinded by the hyper-active pursuit of fame and fortune—someone who enjoys it far too much.

With time running out before another shining star turns up in a body bag, Booker chases an invisible executor, grasping at any shred of evidence to find the young beauty.

For Alisa. For the grieving family. For every girl plucked off the street never to be heard from again. It has to stop. Today. In Dallas. Booker will either succeed or die trying. And so will countless others.

My thoughts:

Mr. Mefford has done it again! I literally couldn't put this book down. I've been following Booker's career since he first left DPD, and this book was the first that was so emotionally charged that it left me shaky.

Alisa's sister Natalie is a party girl who has pushed her family away, but when she goes missing both Alisa and Booker do everything they can to find her. Then one of her friends is found dead in a horrific manner and panic begins to set in.

Will Booker and Alisa be able to find Natalie before her lifeless body is found?

This book is graphic, emotional, intense, horrific, and one of the best books I've read in a long time. You'll gasp, cry and cheer all within a couple of pages.

Booker: Blood Ring can definitely be read alone, but if you're new to the series you'll definitely enjoy the older books also. So grab them all and snuggle in for a great ride!

Booker: Streets of Mayhem (Booker #1)
On a cool October afternoon, the majestic blue sky above Dallas is polluted with swells of gray smoke, carrying shattered memories of fifteen people, mostly children, who've just been killed by an explosion on a bus.

A white supremacist group claims responsibility, opening old wounds, turning neighbor against neighbor--fracturing the community. A Southeast Dallas native, Booker T. Adams couldn't be more invested in the city…in the people he'd served for the last seven years as a beat cop for the Dallas Police Department. Without warning, it becomes personal for Booker on so many levels. And as panic grips the city, he must decide how much he's willing to sacrifice to end the chaos.

With his career called into question and his family in the crosshairs of one terrorist act after another, Booker invests every fiber of his being to protect a broken community, and to stop the brutal, senseless slayings.

If he fails, terrorism will reign in the city of Dallas.

Booker: Tap That (Booker #2)
A performance for the ages.

Courtney Johnson brings the house down in the heart of the vibrant Dallas Arts District. Later, shrills pierce the hallways of Wyle Theater when Courtney, a budding Broadway musical star, is found dead, a single bullet to the head.

Driven to find the killer before panic tears apart the arts community and all those who support it, private investigator Booker T. Adams discovers evidence of a professional hit, then uncovers a lovers ' triangle that takes him all the way to the mean streets of Boston.

And then it happens again. Another performer killed, someone Booker had met. Rocked by the shocking murders, performers and patrons alike fear that a serial killer is on the loose, and no one knows when and or where another dead body will show up.

But professional obligations quickly morph into personal vendettas. Running against an unforgiving clock, Booker is forced to solicit the help of a crime boss, The Shark.

With his life threatened at almost every turn, and his heart being put through a meat grinder, Booker taps into every resource at his disposal to stop more than just a killer.

But at what price?

Full of unforgettable characters, bone-chilling suspense and stunning thrills, BOOKER - Tap That is a wild ride that will test even the most fervent reader's quest for a luminous reading experience.

Booker: Hate City (Booker #3)
After a life filled with destruction of others and himself, and his body ravaged by disease, there's only one thing left for Javier Calero to do. Leave a legacy that will finally bring meaning to his life—and to the death of an American president more than fifty years ago.

The CEO of a green energy company is murdered behind his million-dollar estate, his neck nearly severed in two. Recruited to aid the widow and find a savage killer, Booker finds himself in the middle of a family train wreck.

Days later, thrust into the crossfire of a deadly sniper, Booker eludes sure death with the uncanny arrival of a young woman who only wants to save her father from harm. But she can't do it without Booker's help.

Joining forces with a Latin spitfire, Booker and his new sidekick, Maggie, embark on a twenty-four-hour quest to hunt down a killer determined to make an indelible mark on history—just like the one that struck down John F. Kennedy a half-century earlier, which launched a cascade of assassination investigations and theories.

BOOKER - Hate City weaves a historic tale of thrills and suspense, examining the justifications of the unjustifiable.

Kidnapped in Paradise Book Review and Giveaway


In the Florida Keys, trouble is brewing along with the coffee. Friends Madison Westin and Fabiana Merceau search for the mastermind behind gruesome warnings showing up on their doorstep. Fab’s infamous new partner and Madison’s reappearing ex-husband complicate matters in this sexy and humorous action-adventure, the seventh installment of the Paradise series.

Can they slip the bonds of protective custody and solve the mystery before they are Kidnapped in Paradise?

Kidnapped in Paradise, is the seventh novel in Deborah Brown's Paradise series, which can be also read as a stand alone book.

My thoughts:

I absolutely love the Paradise series, and Kidnapped in Paradise definitely didn't disappoint! Madison and Fab are at it again, and as always they can't stay out of trouble.

In this book we were re-introduced to Madison's ex husband Jax (even though I'd be happy to not meet him again), and we spent a great deal more time with some of the peripheral characters. We saw a lot more of Phil and Spoon, and I like them so much better for the extra time that Mrs. Brown spent with them!

I think it's hilarious that Fab decided that a lighthouse was the perfect office and had one delivered! This is so crazily Fab that no one else could pull it off.

This time around Madison and Fab get dragged into a mystery because part of a dead body is left on their doorstep, and they have no choice but to try to figure out why (much to the chagrin of the men in their lives!)

If you haven't read any of the Paradise series before I strongly recommend you try it. You'll definitely want to go back and read the rest of them!

Available to buy from.....

"I loved it. Couldn't stop reading; real page turner! Would highly recommend. Can't wait for the next book in the series!" 

"Deborah Brown has done it again. The whole crew of South Florida lunatics are flying in every direction in this, the seventh book of the Paradise series." 

"I love the characters with their attitudes and personalities not always agreeing it is a great read!I hope there is more to come can't wait to see what these two cook up next! Definitely two thumbs up Deborah Brown!"  
above reviews from Amazon

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Discovering Delilah Book Review and Giveaway


HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real New Adult Romance series that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting—most of the time. This series is written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.

DISCOVERING DELILAH is an #LGBT New Adult Romance .

After the death of her parents on the day of her college graduation, Delilah Armstrong thought she could finally follow her heart and come out to her closest friends, but the guilt of going against her parents’ beliefs haunts her. The feelings she has for her best friend,

Ashley, are stronger than anything she’s felt before, but Delilah has never even kissed a girl, and fear stops her at every turn. Ashley Carver promised herself that she would never again date another girl who wasn’t out, but that was before she met intoxicatingly sweet and sexy Delilah.

When another girl offers to teach Delilah the ropes, it changes Delilah’s whole world and gives her the courage to go after the only girl she really wants. But coming out isn’t as easy as Delilah imagined, and moving past her parents’ death and the feelings of guilt she is left with is even harder. The intense passion between Ashley and Delilah is too strong to deny, but coming together means risking everything.

Discovering Delilah is an edgy, evocative, romantic story of friendship, family, and the courage to love.

My thoughts:

Delilah Armstrong has already lived through too much in her life. After losing her parents just a short time ago, she's struggling with her sexuality. She's known for years that she likes girls, but has kept it hidden because her parents disapproved. Now that their rules and feelings should no longer be a factor, she's still struggling with guilt and feelings of how disapproving they would be.

Ever since Delilah met Ashley, she knew Ashley was the one. The quickly became fast friends and Ashley helped her through the loss of her parents, but Delilah still doesn't know whether Ashley is interested.

As the heat sparks between these two, they both have to come to grips with what matter most to them, and decide if the other is the answer. This is a wonderful love story, filled with intense emotions, heartache and just enough trouble to make you wonder if it was going to work out.

The only negative to me is that I found switching between Ashley and Delilah confusing, especially since they were both females. Mentally keeping track of what's going on is definitely easier if there's a he and a she in the equation. I loved hearing Ashley's side of the story, I just struggled with the switching a bit.

I'm new to the LGBT genre, but I'm so glad that Melissa Foster (and Delilah and Ashley) were my first!

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

“Melissa Foster does a great job addressing the (still) sensitive subject of same sex relationships and the stereotypes, prejudices and sometimes even consequences of being in one. But this book doesn’t only focus on that one topic. You will also see the beauty of friendship, the love of family and one’s metamorphosis from confusion and pain to self-discovery and acceptance. No matter if you are heterosexual, homosexual or asexual, this is a must read for everybody!”

Three Silver Doves Book Review and Giveaway


NEW BOOK RELEASE....

When New York reporter Paige MacKenzie heads to Tres Palomas, New Mexico, the resort of Agua Encantada seems a perfect destination to combine work with pleasure. A quick article on the healing mineral springs and a few leisurely soaking sessions in the resort’s soothing waters promises well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Paige is immediately intrigued with a local artist's one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, as well as weekly gatherings to hear legends from an elderly storyteller. But when identical jewelry shows up on another guest and the storyteller goes missing, Paige's R&R is soon redefined as restlessness and risk. Curious and persistent by nature, Paige is convinced there's a connection. Enlisting the help of a flirtatious resort worker seems like a good idea until it begins to test her loyalty to her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris. Will an unexpected overnight trip to Tierra Roja Casino lead her to the answers she seeks, or are darker secrets lurking along the way?

My thoughts:

This was my first Paige Mackenzie mystery, and I was quite pleased to discover how quirky Paige is and what a fun story Ms. Garner writes!

Paige MacKenzie is a reporter who goes to the Agua Encantada resort in Tres Palomas, New Mexico to write a story about relaxing at the mineral springs, and Paige is excited to extend her work trip to include a relaxing vacation.

Unfortunately, very soon after she checks in Paige finds herself in the middle of a mystery and she's no longer able to focus on relaxation. As far as I can tell, this is pretty typical for Paige, since she pokes her head into everyone's business, and her boyfriend is constantly worried about her.

This is a fun, quick to read mystery that makes me want to explore the southwest (and maybe find a handsome handyman to flirt with). However, I'd much prefer to not be involved in jewelry theft and underground secrets!

Healed by Love Book Review and Giveaway


NEW BOOK RELEASE........
Book #1 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Book #13 The Bradens series, Love in Bloom #25

Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love.

Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.

THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My thoughts:

I am a huge fan of the Bradens, and I was very excited to meet a whole new family of them.

Jewel has been taking care of her family for years, since she lost her father and then her older brother. She has the weight of the world on her shoulders and misses her brother Rick terribly.

Nate Braden was Rick's best friend since childhood, and he has tremendous survivor's guilt after joining the military with Rick and coming home without him. He's had a thing for Jewel for years but can't bear to be near her because of his guilt. When Nate comes back into town he tries to fulfill his promise to Rick to help his family, and Jewel and Nate wind up spending a lot of time together.

Can Jewel let down her hair enough to take a chance with Rick? Can Rick get past his feelings of guilt and allow himself to love?

This is a very emotional book, one that had me in tears multiple times, but it also had me pulling for Nate and Jewel to find happiness. I did feel like Nate and Jewel were kind of childish in their attempts to understand their own feelings, so while I liked this book it was not my favorite of all Melissa Foster's books. Even so, I am very excited to meet more of Nate's family and can't wait for the next installment of the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor.
