Destiny Bay Romances - Forever Yours
(Sweet Edition #3)
by Helen Conrad
Adult Romance
Paperback & Ebook, 165 pages
March 28th 2014 by Doorknock Publishing

A sweet old-fashioned girl

isn’t what Grant Carrington is looking for. A man who lives for speed and danger, he’s only slowed down because he’s been forced to by an injury. Carrie Harlow isn’t his type, but he needs her in order to heal. She knows she’s playing with fire, but she feels she can help him and she goes for it—even though she knows she’s endangering her own heart as she fixes his.

Recipe for Carrie's Chicken Picatta included.

Purchase from Amazon.

My Review

By far Moving Too Fast was my favorite from this series! It had a dark and brooding bad boy for the male protagonist and a sweet and lovable female protagonist. There was plenty of romantic tension with just a few intense kisses, which to me makes them more meaningful and more climatic. I also liked that you could read this book, just like the others, on its own. The other characters from the first two books do make appearances, but the two MC's are center stage and the story is one that holds its own.

I liked that the story was mostly from Carrie's perspective with Grant's mixed in here and there. I liked her voice. I liked how she was a little apprehensive of Grant, but not afraid to challenge and push him. I loved that they were immediately attracted to each other and had to really put that off, but that they spent lots of time developing a friendship. Their friendship had the potential for so much more.

I'm curious to see what happens between Tag and Mickey (secondary characters in the first three books of this series) and if there will be more stories about the next generation of Carrington's, or which stories the author will be re-writing into cleaner and sweeter versions. Now I need to go try out the recipes at the back of these books. They make me hungry just thinking about them. :)

It's just really a quick and fun book. It was entertaining and definitely sweet. I'd recommend it to Adult Romance readers.


Content: Clean (There is some innuendo and one suggestive scene, but I would consider this clean for the genre.)

A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: All My Belongings by Cynthia Ruchti


Welcome to my tour stop for All My Belongings by Cynthia Ruchti! This book was so, so good! Read my review and check out the giveaway info below, but first about the book...

All My BelongingsAll My Belongings
by Cynthia Ruchti
Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback335 Pages
May 1st 2014 by Abingdon Press            

Summary

A new life and a new identity can’t protect Becca from a past that refuses to go away.

After spending years running from the shame her father put on her family, Jayne is determined not to let him steal her future in the same way he stole her childhood. Changing her name to Becca Morrow, she moves to California and settles into a new life and new job caring for ailing mother of handsome young businessman, Isaac Hughes.

But just as she’s wondering if she and Isaac are headed for a relationship, Becca’s patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage threaten to destroy all sense of home and all hope for love.

Even if she could clear her name, a phone call wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her estranged father needs her help. But can Becca open her new life to the man who ruined her past?
    

My Review

I wasn't sure that I was prepared for this one after I ready the first few pages. Jayne, aka "Becca," witnesses something really terrible that is also emotionally very close to her and then tries to build a new life somehow afterwards. It just really hit me with how abhorrent and difficult and sad the situation was. Then she went to care for an ailing lady who had a heart condition and Alzheimer's. I felt really emotionally drained in parts. There were poignant thoughts like this one:
"Sometimes parents give you away, but they make you stay."
~p. 16
This is in reference to the very lonely childhood Becca experienced. She was there, but not there and that made me really sad too. I just connected with the character and what her emotions would feel like with the way the story was written. It was like the characters thoughts were taken straight to the page. They weren't always in lovely sentences. Sometimes they were broken, but they felt real. 

Then there were other poignant, but beautiful moments that just lifted my heart. There were a couple of scenes with Aurelia (the ailing lady Becca is caring for) where Aurelia started this conversation and then Becca tried to find what she was referencing and she finally finds it. It was one of my favorites from the book and tied in so nicely with the book title. Here are parts of it:
Aurelia's eyes widened. "Becca, will you look at that?" The conversation derailed.
"What is it?" 
"See here in my palm?" The older woman held one shaky hand toward her. The skin was so white-pink it looked bleached, and so thin Becca wondered how protective it could be anymore. 
"I don't see anything. I'm sorry." 
"No. You wouldn't." Her expression darkened. "Nothing's written there." Pale as they were, her eyes lit. "But my name is written on God's palm." 
Becca envisioned Aurelia Hughes inscribed in beautiful penmanship on an enormous, calloused Hand. 
Aurelia closed both her frail fist and her eyes. "Some days, that's the only thing that keeps me going." 
Her breathing deep and unhurried now, she seemed not to sleep as much as rest in that thought.
~ p. 79-80       
Then it continued a little later here: 
A fragile string of graduated flowers stuck its head out of the pages of Aurelia's Bible. Becca opened to the bookmarked page. There it was. Isaiah 49:16"Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands." Belonging.
~ p. 91
I really loved Becca, Isaac, and Geneva. I loved how they were knit together and they interacted with each other. I loved Isaac's group of guy friends. I loved Aurelia and how much she added to the story. I do have to admit that when Becca first started caring for Aurelia and lied about her past that it really bugged me. I thought it would have been so much easier for her to have told as close to the truth as possible. No one would have thought she was anyone other than she said she was. There was no reason to. Instead she bumbles through a lot of the time. At the same time, I could see why she felt as she did and I loved this book regardless.

This was such a heartfelt, intense, sweet, unpredictable-in-so-many-ways-type of story. It was tough to read in parts, but it was so worth reading. There were so many poignant and sad, but also happy moments. I loved it! I would definitely recommend it to Christian Romance readers as well as general Adult Romance readers. The inspirational element is definitely there, but it wasn't overly done. It was just part of these characters and their lives.

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Immersed by Jennifer Griffith

Immersed tour

I just want to shout out a final "Thank you!" to these fabulous authors for writing such enjoyable and clean Adult Romance.

This is the last novella in this series. I'm actually going to miss reading these, but I guess I can now re-read them. :) The book up for review this time around is...

Immersed NewImmersed
(The Ripple Effect Romance Novella Series #6)
by Jennifer Griffith
Adult Romance Novella
May 19th 2014

Summary

Lissette Pannebaker speaks five languages and has a brilliant business plan—personal language immersion. Clients can hire her to shadow them and speak all day in any language they need to learn for business or travel—whatever. But there’s a major hitch: she’s far too pretty. Clients with less than honorable intentions sign up just to have Lisette at their side. Solution? A make-under. Way under.

The bad wig, icky makeup and puffy sweaters work like a charm. None of her male clients show her the least bit of interest. Lisette’s totally relieved.

Until...Erik.

Erik Gunnarson is charming, kind, and smart—everything she’s ever looked for. Every day as his tutor is making her fall for him more. Even though he seems to have a secret, and she’s sworn she'd never date a client, Lisette is tempted to shed her disguise—although it could mean jeopardizing her career.
    

My Review

Immersed really surprised me. It just wasn't what I was expecting and it was a very different story from the other books in the series. These weren't bad things though. They were very good things because I loved this story!! Loved it! It might be my favorite of the series.

Lissette's voice was fabulous! I absolutely loved it and the craziness and humor. I could understand where she was coming from and how tired she was of being hit on because of her looks. I also really liked Erik. He was unexpected in a lot of ways too. I figured out who he was almost right away, but I still didn't know what he was playing at. I just fell in love with both of these characters!! The romance wasn't too heavy, so it didn't overshadow them or the plot. Speaking of the plot...

The plot kept me guessing. I didn't know if Erik had an agenda of some sort and what it would be. I didn't know if Lissette would pick up on things. I didn't know if she would blow her cover. I wasn't sure about the whole situation with Lisette's mom. That was probably my only non-realistic-feeling part of the story, but regardless I still loved it. It definitely pulled an emotional response. I just loved the humor and the creativity of this story!

Immersed was such a fun and sweet read. It kept me laughing at these outrageous moments, had me melting with the sweet romance, and falling in love with its characters. It's definitely one that I'll be re-reading. I'd definitely recommend it to romance lovers!

Excerpt

“So…what?”

“Plain and simple: you’re too pretty for this job.”

Lisette rolled her eyes and picked up her brush again, going at the high spots on the wall with vigor. “You’ve been talking to my mom again. Did she finally rub off on you?” Great. Now no one believed in her. Not even Aunt Corky. Just a pretty face.

“No, not in that way. What I’m saying is that your business has merit. It can totally work. But just not with you, the way you are.”

Aunt Corky probably didn’t mean to make Lisette want to cry, but the tears welled in her eyes all the same. This dream had taken every waking hour of the last eighteen months. She’d poured her heart and soul into making it grow, not to mention all the money she’d buried in it—advertising, the office, everything. And her time. Day and night. How entrepreneurs lived past age forty mystified her. She barely had time to keep an eye on her elderly next door neighbors. And when a girl was too busy to serve other people, she was too busy.

Aunt Corky reached over and grabbed Lisette’s hand. “What I’m saying is you need a makeover.”

Lisette raised an eyebrow.

“Don’t raise that eyebrow at me, Z. I’m serious about this.” Aunt Corky folded her arms across her chest. “Not a makeover in the traditional sense. More like a make-under. You know, to make you look less…gorgeous.”

Here it went again, with the appearance factor. Didn’t all the studies say that people who were good-looking had a better chance at success than those who were below average?

“You’re not buying it, I can tell. But think with me. Dark circles under the eyes. A greasy wig. Lines at the mouth. And right about here,” she pointed at her nostril, “a big wart.”

“A wart!”

“Okay, maybe not a wart. That might be over the top. But something that will keep all the pawing maniacs at a distance.” Aunt Corky shrugged and leaned against a dry wall like she’d made her case and the prosecution rested. “Think about it, Z. I mean, you want Immerse to succeed, right? All the years of language skills and business acumen you’ve amassed, they’re going to waste.”

Lisette sighed. Even though she wouldn’t admit it aloud to Aunt Corky, unless something changed at Immerse, things could go south pretty fast. However, she wasn’t convinced it was reason enough to subjugate her dignity and go into daily disguise just to ward off pretenders.

Aunt Corky resumed painting. “Just think about it. Don’t decide now. But if you want to do it, I know somebody. Samantha. A genius with bad makeup. She could absolutely transform you. No one would even recognize you.”

This was crossing over from ridiculous into the absurd.

Summary

Zahara Faraday looks like a normal eighteen-year-old and lives in a quiet neighborhood with her overprotective parents. She works at a bookstore and hangs out with her best friend Becca King on a daily basis. But underneath the normal lies a secret life filled with dangerous supernaturals. Zahara belongs to a world made of Light Witches, rogue Imagoes (supernatural creatures with super strength, speed, and silver skin when the moon is out), fallen angels, and Nephilim (hybrid children born half-human, half-angel). Where her father Solomon Faraday is human, her mother Mia and her Aunt Catalina are Light Witches. They help protect the human world by hunting down rogue supernaturals who commit heinous acts against humans. What they never expected was the possibility of having to hunt down the one rogue coven they had befriended and come to trust in their battle against Lucifer. Rekesh Saint-Louis is the leader of the most powerful Imago coven in Florida and now he’s the most suspected. Supernatural bodies are starting to pile up with an ancient ritual long forbade being used to murder them and the symbol, one large cross with four smaller crosses around it—which represents Rekesh’s coven— being left behind. Rekesh and the Elders of his coven set out to find who is behind the murders and clearing his name before a war between the covens begins. To make matters more difficult, Rekesh also has to deal with the return of someone he has been keeping a secret.

Meanwhile, Zahara and Becca are spending more time brushing up on their training, knowing an attack from Lucifer can come at any moment. Between patrolling neighborhoods and hanging at the boarding school created by Charles Stephens—a fallen angel who created the school to protect the children of rogue supernaturals—they are thrown into one battle after another. Zahara begins to develop a closer bond with Jason as they train and chase down clues to clear Rekesh’s name. What she doesn’t know is the very powerful secret Jason is keeping; a secret that will change the course of the fight with Lucifer.

But Rekesh’s coven being set up isn’t the only danger. A new powerful and lethal drug has emerged from the shadows of the supernatural world called Inferi. The drug has two deadly side effects: it leaves the supernatural hungering for blood—both human and supernatural—and grants them the elemental power they had once possessed.

Lucifer is on the move and he will stop at nothing to get his hands on Zahara and complete the first act of his plan.

A battle is about to begin.

One that may cost the Faraday family everything they hold dear.
 

Sale!


Summary

Have you ever wondered what could be hiding in the shadows?

Well, for eighteen-year-old Zahara Faraday, she doesn’t have to wonder. You see she comes from a lineage of Light Witches, those who have chosen to help protect and serve between the supernatural world and the human world. The only problem is Zahara, like her father Solomon, is as human as a human being can be whereas her mother, Mia, and her Aunt Catalina, were born as Light Witches. As a family they hunt down rogue supernaturals—creatures who harm humans or who have committed an act against their kingdom. 

Zahara’s hunting skills are usually kept dormant since her parents would prefer she live life as a normal human girl without knowledge of the supernatural world. She plans on doing just that—except when she finds a couple being attacked by fairies, she has no choice but to step in. Before she can return to pretending to be blissfully ignorant, Zahara encounters a problem she isn’t the least equip to handle: Bryan Hamilton, the good looking new co-worker she has to help train. In a heartbeat, her best friend, Becca King, has set her up on a double date with herself and her new crush, Rekesh Saint-Louis, who happens to be the most powerful leader of the biggest Imago Coven in South Florida –supernatural creatures with the ability to control water . . . and suck out human souls. 

Zahara has no time to focus on how she’s going to explain her double date with her best friend and the enemy they have a tentative truce with to her parents because soon one of the members of Mia and Catalina’s coven is found murdered with a strange tattoo of a snake with wings carved into his arm.

Zahara is then thrown into a whirlwind battle with an angel determined to have revenge against God, an Imago coven she doesn’t think they should trust, and slew of dream-eating fairies and powerful Nephilims, hybrid children of angels and humans, more than happy to rip her to shreds.

Normal just got a deadlier definition.

Promotional Stop with Review & Giveaway: The Recruit by Fiona Palmer

May 1st, 2014 by Escape Publishing            

Summary

From one of Australia’s Queens of Romance comes the debut in a brand new YA series about secrets, strengths, and what lies beneath the surface.

Jasmine Thomas may not be completely normal, but she’s a pretty typical seventeen-year-old girl. She hates the rich mean kids, loves her best friends, and can’t wait to get out of school each day. Her spare time is spent at The Ring — a boxing gym where she practically grew up — learning karate, boxing and street fighting. So, yeah, Jaz can kick some major butt.

Life seems pretty normal until the day Ryan Fletcher enters her gym…mysterious and hot with heaps of bad boy charm. Sure, she checks him out. Who wouldn’t? But what doesn’t show on his gorgeous abs are secrets and lies that dominate his very grown-up world. Now Jaz has to figure out just how far she is willing to go to know more. Could Ryan really be offering the life-fulfilling life path she’s always dreamed of?
    


My Review

I really enjoyed reading The Recruit. It was different and interesting with an intense and driven female protagonist. It was a little different than what I was expecting. I was expecting more of a climax and more suspense like the last of the summary points to. There is some, but this is more of a Contemporary Romance with a twist. 

I really liked Jasmine and her group of friends. I also liked the dynamics of the high school, which is so uncharacteristic of me. Normally I don't like the extra drama, but I liked how the characters and author handled that setting and that it wasn't over-dramatized. I also really liked The Ring, which is the boxing gym that much of the story takes place at. Then there was Ryan, who kind of had that dark and broody bad boy vibe. He's about five years older than Jasmine, but it all worked. 

The MTG Agency plot was interesting. We just graze the surface in this first book. I think there will be a lot more going on in the following books in the series, at least I hope there is. There is potential here for some good spying and suspense with still that element of romance that was present in this book. I'm curious to see where the series goes. The only thing I didn't like was all the language.

I would recommend The Recruit to those who enjoy YA or NA Contemporary Romance with an element of action and suspense and a strong female protagonist.
