Pucked Off by Helena Hunting


Release Date: 02.21.2017



Synopsis:

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance."

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do. 

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.


Review:


I loved this novel...I have a weakness for gingers and broken Heroes so this is really a win for me!

Lance character is more complicated than what I expected and I was caught up into his story from the first page.
I was so glad to see all the gang in this book and Violet is still my favorite unfiltered character I'd like to have as friend.

I hope Helena Hunting never stop to write about these characters because I really love every single one of them.

Ghosted by J.M. Darhower


Release Date: 08.23.2017



Synopsis:

He's a troubled young actor, Hollywood's newest heartthrob, struggling with fame as the star of the latest superhero franchise. Through scandal after scandal, addiction on top of addiction, a flurry of paparazzi hunt him as he fights to conquer his demons. 

She's a single mother, assistant manager at a grocery store, existing in monotony with her five-year-old daughter. Every day when she goes to work, lurid tabloids surround her, the face of a notorious bad boy haunting her from their covers. 

A man and a woman, living vastly different lives, but that wasn't always the case. Once, they were just a boy and a girl who bonded over comic books and fell in love unexpectedly. 

When Kennedy Garfield met Jonathan Cunningham back in high school, she knew he had all the makings of a tragic hero. With stars in his eyes, and her heart on her sleeve, the pair ran away together to follow their dreams. 

But dreams, sometimes, turn into nightmares. 

Now, years later, the only thing they share is a daughter—one who has no idea her father plays her favorite superhero. But Jonathan is desperate to make amends, and at the top of his list is the woman who gave up everything for him and the little girl he hasn't yet met.

Review:



Ghosted was the "beautifulest" story I've read this year until now.
I would have given this book 4 stars but thanks to a little girl that makes everything more perfect and lovely I gave it 5 shining stars.

"You're the caterpillar that went into the cocoon and emerged a glorious butterfly, but I'm the reminder that butterflies don't stick around long, a few weeks at most before they're gone." 

Kennedy and Jonathan journey towards reconciliation caught my interest at the first page and my affection for them grew chapter after chapter,while the present story made my heart fuzzy the past tale broke it and at times made me cry.

"Never make someone else the main character in your own story." 

I really liked this second chance at love romance and it put J.M. Darhower on my radar,I'm going to start to read her other novels soon.

Review:



Pot Love is a funny,sweet and enjoyable read...it was a page turner for me I was so curious I've finished it in a day.

I liked to follow our heroine,Ashley,through the ups and downs of her personal and working life and to see her growing page after page becoming a happier person full of passion for whatever she does.

I don't know why I've waited so much to read this book but now I can't wait to start the second installement of this series.

The Great Escape by Charlotte Fallowfiel


Release Date: 08.31.2017


Synopsis:

A tropical beach paradise in Mexico was the last place Georgie Basset expected her decimated heart to be jump-started again, not after she’d been jilted the year before by her fiancé, leading to said breakage. But when she spotted Weston Argent jogging along the beach, all bronzed with ripped muscles like some Greek God out of a modern day Baywatch scene, she nearly choked on her cocktail. She knew immediately she was in trouble, she’d never reacted so strongly to a man on first glance. 

However, after a disastrous first date with him, she headed back home to Dilbury, resigned to never seeing him again. That is, until Weston turned up unexpectedly at her dog grooming parlour with Bertie the French bulldog, a species she had a real weakness for. She couldn’t help but wonder if fate was playing a helping hand. But each time she saw him, their encounters never went smoothly, resulting in some mortifying and hilarious escapades. Despite their undeniable attraction, there was something about Weston that she couldn’t quite put her finger on, something that concerned her.

When the truth finally came to light, Georgie was convinced that all men were dogs, except she knew that was an insult to dogkind. Ever the meddler, her best friend, Abbie, intervened, knowing in her heart that despite what had happened, Weston was full of good intentions, and was undoubtedly Georgie’s Prince Charming.

The question remained, could he convince Georgie of that, or would he forever remain in the dog house?


Review:


This was an enjoyable read,a great escape from real life.

We met Dilbury village and its inhabitants in the firs installment of the series but this story is focused on Georgie...no worries you can read this as a standalone but I strongly suggest you to start from the beginning and meet the funny and adorable Abbie first.

I liked how our heroine doesn't follow the rules her preppy parents made for her but she has the courage to choose what's best for her life.
Georgie and Weston journey starts in a tropical paradise,they were really awkward and after their first date I thought they were doomed but I've really appreciated the tenacity that our Hero shows in order to get our girl.

I've laughed,I've cried and I felt all fuzzy inside reading this novel and I can't wait to read more from Charlotte Fallowfield.

Even the Score by Beth Ehemann


Release Date: 09.06.2016



Synopsis:

Single dad Andy Shaw loves his job as a sports agent, with one exception: it doesn’t leave him much time for his kids. No parent likes being sidelined, so Andy decides to hire someone to share the workload. But when one of the hottest agents in the industry applies, Andy knows that this deal is definitely trouble.

Danicka Douglas works her butt off, but being an attractive woman in a testosterone-heavy industry isn’t exactly a cakewalk. She guards her professional reputation fiercely, which means no crushing on her gorgeous boss. But the more they ignore that sexy little spark, the more it sizzles…

Just when it looks like romance might be in the game plan, Dani is threatened by a stalker with dark intentions. To keep her safe, Andy must cross the line between professional and very personal…because this time, he’s playing for keeps.


Review:



I didn't know what to expect from this story after I've met Andy in the previous books in the series but I have had a good time knowing him and his kids better.

I loved Andy,he is a great man and an amazing father...he was unlucky in the wife department but he fixed that problem getting a divorce and becoming a single dad.
I was so glad fate put on his way the beautiful Danicka, and even if their journey didn't start under the best of luck I've appreciated how our Hero take care of her.

I've read all Beth Ehemann's books because I like her writing and plots and she can always make me fall in love with her characters at the first page.
