From the Start - Cheryl Etchison


He’ll have to confront the nightmares from his past 
if they’re to have any chance at a future.


FROM THE START
American Valor #3
Cheryl Etchison
Releasing May 23, 2017
Avon Impulse


For many women, Ranger Battalion Surgeon Michael MacGregor is the ideal man. He’s far better than average looking, a generous tipper, not to mention an officer and a doctor. So when he encounters a woman resistant to his charms, he finds himself… intrigued.

Kacie Morgan has had her fill of arrogant military men since the last one left her with a shattered heart and one heck of a career rut. Now, with her prestigious fellowship starting in the fall, all she has to do is survive the summer—and her little sister’s wedding.

When an ill-fitting bridesmaid dress has Kacie wanting to temporarily shake things up in her carefully planned life, she knows just the man to call. They agree to a no-strings, summer fling, although it isn’t long before Michael wants Kacie for forever.

But to win her heart, he’ll have to confront the nightmares from his past if they’re to have any chance at a future.



I loved this book from Cheryl Etchison!  Once again she's woven a story perfectly balanced of romance, drama and sexiness.  Kacie and Michael are thrown together at her sister's bachelorette party, though she wants nothing to do with a military man she can't seem to stay away.  Both are dealing with ghosts from their pasts.  Though they each seem to be able to help the other though both are a bit stubborn to let go.  Their love and care for their families are undeniable and make both characters very likable.  
I adore an amazing military romance and the fact it's based fairly close to home tends to make me drawn in as well.  Cheryl Etchison has a wonderful town with intricate characters that weave in and out of each other's lives like a flawless quilt. I highly recommend this book!




Cheryl Etchison graduated from the University of Oklahoma’s School of Journalism and began her career as an oil and gas reporter. Bored to tears and broke as hell, it wasn’t long before she headed for the promise land of public relations. But that was nearly a lifetime ago and she’s since traded in reporting the facts for making it all up. Currently, she lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and three daughters.

Crazy for You - Rachel Lacey

She's taking a walk on HIS wild side!

SHE'S TAKING A WALK ON HIS WILD SIDE

Emma Rush can't remember a time when she didn't have a thing for Ryan Blake. Haven's resident bad boy is just so freakin' hot-with tattoos, a motorcycle, and enough rough-around-the-edges sexiness to melt all her self-control. Now that Emma's over being a "good girl," she needs a little help being naughty . . . and she knows just where to start.


Before Emma's brother enlisted in the military, he made Ryan promise that he would protect her from everything--including himself. When her brother doesn't come home, Ryan needs to turn his screwed-up life around to honor his pledge. But he knows he's still not the right kind of guy for someone as sweet as Emma. Only he can't stop wanting to be with her. Wanting her. Falling in love with a good girl may be the craziest risk this bad boy can take . . . 

Amazon ~ B&N ~ iBooks


Crazy for You has me even more bananas for this series than it did before. From page one I was swept away in this friends to lovers romance. Ryan's love for Emma has grown from kid sister of his best friend who died in the war, to he can't seem to keep her off his mind or heart, whether he wants to admit it or not. His promise so many years ago to Emma's brother to never touch her holds him back until he can't deny his attraction any more. It drove me nuts a bit that he couldn't get past it but he's too damn sexy and sweet to not have him sweep you off your feet.
Emma is sass and spunk. You can't help but love her character and hope for her long crush on Ryan finally be returned. She's his perfect match to Ryan's hard headed ways. Just as his wild man ways complete her.
Rachel Lacey has a way of making readers feel like they're in the story and easily become emotionally involved with her fun unique characters. If you're looking for an amazing romance that leaves your heart pounding and happy then I highly recommend checking out Crazy for You.

Ghost Code - Sarah Negovetich


The wait is over! From the bestselling author of the Acceptance series, comes an all new YA-standalone that's sure to be the first summer smash-hit! Sarah Negovetich delivers and you won't want to miss out. Grab your copy today!

Title: Ghost Code
Author: Sarah Negovetich
Genre: Young Adult/Sci-Fi
Release Date: May 15, 2017

"Ghost Code is a fast paced thrill ride that will take you to the very edge--of life and of love--and leave you begging for just one more page." 
-Bestselling Author Sherry D. Ficklin (The Hacker Series)



"Without dreams, what's the point of being awake?"

After a lifetime of fighting cancer, eighteen-year-old Viv Quiroga is dying. But she’s determined to go out on her own terms. Instead of wasting away in a hospital watching her mom worry over their mounting debt, she volunteers for a private research program.

For thirty days she’ll live in a coma as a human lab rat. When her time is up, they turn off the machines and pay off all her medical bills.

It’s supposed to be a one way trip.

Until Viv wakes up and learns what it really means to live.

     


I've been thinking and thinking on this review and what I want to say.  I've come to the conclusion it's hard without getting spoilery on you.  I will say this isn't my usual genre. However, Sarah Negovetich picked me up and ran with me from page one to the very end.  I loved Viv's story. There's tons of intrigue and action that leaves you on the edge of your seat!  If you enjoy a mystery with the unique hacker storyline I highly recommend Ghost Code!  





Sarah Negovetich knows you don't know how to pronounce her name and she's okay with that.

Her first love is Young Adult novels, because at seventeen the world is your oyster. Only oysters are slimy and more than a little salty; it's accurate if not exactly motivational. We should come up with a better cliché.

Sarah divides her time between writing YA books that her husband won’t read and performing on stage at BE Theatre. Her goal in life is to never grow up.

Happy Release Day Sarah and Ghost Code! Join us in wishing Sarah all the best with her new release by reaching out to her via Facebook or Twitter at the links above you will not regret it!

Jack, oh Jack. Fisherman and carpenter. Could there be a more manly hero for a romance story?  His loyalty and care swept me off my feet. Grace has a strength that captivates both Jack and the reader.  She's her mother's caretaker and that's the one thing that can be her weakness in not living her life for her. All the secondary characters are just as fascinating as Grace and Jack. 

Annie Rains has once again created an amazing world perfect for romance readers to escape into.  Her ability to weave a story that will have you enthralled and emotionally invested in the characters is uncanny.  I'm am ready and waiting for the next book in the Blushing Bay Series!

a charmed little lie - Sharla Lovelace


Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make 
a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it?


A CHARMED LITTLE LIE
Charmed in Texas #1
Sharla Lovelace
Releasing April 18th, 2017
Lyrical Shine


Lanie Barrett didn’t mean to lie. Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it? Lanie thinks so, especially since her beloved Aunt Ruby would have been heartbroken to know the truth of her niece’s sadly loveless, short-of-sparkling existence. Trouble is, according to the will, Ruby didn’t quite buy Lanie’s tale. And to inherit the only house Lanie ever really considered a home, she’ll have to bring her “husband” back to Charmed, Texas for three whole months—or watch Aunt Ruby’s cozy nest go to her weasel cousin, who will sell it to a condo developer.

Nick McKane is out of work, out of luck, and the spitting image of the man Lanie described. He needs money for his daughter’s art school tuition, and Lanie needs a convenient spouse. It’s a match made . . . well, not quite in heaven, but for a temporary arrangement, it couldn’t be better. Except the longer Lanie and Nick spend as husband and wife, the more the connection between them begins to seem real. Maybe this modern fairy tale really could come true . . .
