About THE LAST LETTER:

Beckett,

If you’re reading this, well, you know the “last-letter” drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there were any chance you could have saved me, you would have.

I need one thing from you: Get out of the army and get to Telluride.

My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.

And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.

So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.

Please don’t make her go through it alone.

Ryan

My Review

“Sometimes you have to leave so you can know what it is you left. You don’t really value something until you’ve lost it.”

“I’d always been big, but something about how fragile she seemed made me feel huge, like I could put my body in front of the storm headed her way and protect her…even if the storm was of my own making.”

“I loved this woman. I would take on armies for her, kill for her, or die for her. There was no grater truth than that, and no other truth that I could give her. Because where she was honest and strong, and kind, I was a liar who had already hurt her in the worst possible way. I had no right to hold her like this, but even worse–I wasn’t going to move a muscle.”

“Because from the moment I saw your face and heard you speak, you were the only one I wanted. You ruined me for anyone else before you ever knew my name.” She ruined me from the second she’d said she regretted writing in pen. She’d had every ounce of my soul when I finished that first letter. “Now that I’ve had one night with you, I don’t want only one. I want them all, and I’m willing to take whatever you want to give me.”

“Hope is good. Feel it. Because you have no idea what’s coming around the corner. You have to take the good when it comes, because the bad isn’t going to give you a choice.”

There are books that you read, and you completely forget them once you come to the end. And then there are books like this one. Books that embed themselves deep within you. Books that stir up all of your emotions and you just know that reading this book is going to change your life. The Last Letter is that kind of book. It’s the kind of book that just calls out to your soul and demands to be read. It’s the kind of book that you think you’re prepared for, but you couldn’t be more wrong. It’s the kind of book that destroys you, yet fills you with hope all at the same time. It’s the kind of book that will have you crying all of the ugly tears you can summon up. This is the kind of book that I can’t imagine never getting to experience. It’s completely and totally unforgettable and one of the best books I have ever read in my entire life.

As I sit here thinking about The Last Letter, I am a total loss for words. I’m having the hardest time trying to sum up all of my thoughts and feeling into coherent sentences. It’s been such a long time since I’ve had a book make me feel this way. How do you write a review for a book that obliterated your heart? When the writing just slays you, leaving you utterly speechless with tear filled eyes? I don’t know if I have the words to do this review justice, but I’m going to try my best.

The Last Letter grabbed me from the very first page. I loved the idea of this story and felt an instant connection with the characters. At 10% I wanted to cry. Little did I know that wouldn’t be the last time that tears would fill my eyes. This story and the characters felt so real. I felt like I knew them. I felt like I was right inside the pages with the characters and living each moment along with them. There were moments of bliss and happiness. Moments of rage and heartache. Moments where I just wanted to scream and walk away from my kindle. Moments I never saw coming, but even in their sadness, it filled my heart with the biggest love. Never, ever has a story ever touched my heart the way that this one has. I’ve never had a group of fictional characters ingrain themselves like this. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t one single character in this story that didn’t run away with a piece of my heart. From Ryan to Chaos to Ella and her beautiful kids: Maisie and Colton. Each one of them consumed me and stole a piece of me that I never want to get back.

The Last Letter is one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful books that I have ever read. The writing will not only slay you, but take you on the most incredible journey. The characters will consume you and you won’t be able to put their story down. The Last Letter was everything that I never knew I needed and can’t imagine my life without. Even now, hours later, I still have tears in my eyes thinking about this book. There aren’t enough words to describe just how special this journey is that Rebecca Yarros has taken me on. The Last Letter isn’t always an easy read. In fact, there are moments that are going to hurt, maybe even break you. Rebecca Yarros broke my heart. She made me cry. She left me an emotional mess. Yet, at the same time, she reminded me how precious life is. How important those small, little moments are. She reminded me to appreciate each moment and to never give up. To love with each and every breath. Books like this are the reason that I read. It’s stolen a piece of me and I know I’ll never be the same again.

In the end, all that’s left to say is I hope you will read this book. If it’s not already on your radar or to-read list, stop what you’re doing. Run and add this book to your list. I hope you will take a chance and experience the beauty of it. I hope you will experience all that I have and I promise you, Rebecca Yarros will make all the pain and hurt worth it in the end.

Excerpt:

“Ella.” It was a plea to speak, to not speak. Hell, I didn’t know anymore.

“You don’t see me like that. I totally get it.” She reached for the TV remote.

“How exactly do I see you? Please, enlighten me.” I leaned forward, stealing the remote. She’d opened this box and had better well dish it.

She huffed in annoyance. “You see me as a mom. As Colt and Maisie’s mom. And of course you do, because that’s what I am. A mom with two kids.”

“Well, yeah,” I said. Her motherhood—that selfless devotion she had to her kids—was one of her most attractive attributes.

She rolled her eyes with a little sigh, and the metaphorical light bulb went off in my head.

“You don’t think I want you.”

She shot me a look that confirmed my guess and blushed the same crimson of her couch. “You know, you’re right. It’s late.” She faked a yawn. “Suuuuuuper late.”

“I want you.” Damn, it felt so good to say the words.

“Yeah, okay.” She gave me a goofy look and a thumbs-up. “Please don’t make me feel any more idiotic than I do right now.”

Yeah, enough of this bullshit.

I pounced in one smooth motion, taking her back to the couch, sliding over her as I gathered her wrists in one hand above her head and settled between her open thighs.

Home.

“Holy shit, you move fast.” There was no fear or rejection in her eyes, just surprise.

“Not in every arena,” I promised.

Her lips parted.

“Ella. I want you.”

“Beckett…you don’t have to.”

Yeah, that soft little sigh she did was going to be my undoing.

I let go of her wrists, letting my fingers trail down her arm until I had one hand weaving my fingers into the hair at the base of her scalp and the other at the curve in her waist.

“Feel this?” Then I slid forward, letting my dick stroke along the seam in her pajama pants hard enough for her to gasp at the contact. I couldn’t remember ever wanting to shred a piece of fabric so much in my life. “I’ve never wanted a woman as much as I want you.”

I moved again, and her eyes slid shut as she let loose the sweetest moan.

My dick throbbed, knowing everything I’d fantasized about for the better part of the last eight months was one decision away.

“Beckett.” Her hands found my biceps, her nails digging in.

“Don’t ever think that I don’t want you, because if things were different, I would have already been inside you. I would know exactly how you feel, and what you sound like, look like, when you come. I’ve thought about it at least a hundred different ways, and believe me, I’ve got a great imagination.”

She rocked her hips against me, and I locked my jaw to keep from giving her exactly what her body was asking for. “Ella, you have to stop.”

“Why?” she asked, her lips dangerously close to mine. “What do you mean if things were different?” Her eyes flew wide. “Is this because I have kids?”

“What? No. Of course not. It’s because you’re Ryan’s little sister.” Before I could do any more damage, I got the hell off her and sat back on my side of the couch.

“Because…I’m Ryan’s little sister,” she repeated, scooting so she sat upright, facing me. “And you think he’d, what? Haunt you?”

Three things: The letter. The cancer. The lie.

I repeated those in my head until I was certain I could look at her and not drag her back under me.

“Beckett?”

“When I was growing up, if I wanted something, I took it. Immediately. I had sex at fourteen with a girl in my foster home of the moment. I opened Christmas presents early if I was lucky enough to get one, and it was usually from my social worker or some charity.”

“I don’t understand.” She wrapped her arms around her knees again.

“I took it immediately because I knew if I didn’t, chances were I wouldn’t get it. It was a now-or-never kind of thing—there weren’t second chances.”

“Okay.”

“I can’t touch you, can’t talk about it, because I’m afraid I’ll act on it.”

“And why does that matter if I want you to?”

“Because I won’t get a second chance. And I’m crap with people, with relationships. I’ve never had one that lasted more than a month. Never loved a woman I’ve slept with. And chances are I’d do something to screw this up, because it’s not just my dick that wants you, Ella.”

That O popped right back onto her face, and I closed my eyes to keep from lunging across the distance and kissing her. Knowing she’d let me—that she wanted it—sent my need from a bullet to a nuclear missile.

“And when I’d screw it up, because it would happen, trust me, it would hurt Colt and Maisie, too. You’d be on your own again, because there’s no chance you’d let me hang around and help you out like Ryan asked.”

“And there it is.”

“There it is. You’re Ryan’s little sister.”

“There were only five years between us. Not so little, you know.” She reached for the remote.

“I’m well aware.”

“So if Ryan were still alive…” She shot one last look at me.

I let everything slip for a millisecond, letting her see it all in my eyes, how badly I wanted her, and not just for her body. “Everything would be different.”

“Everything?”

“Everything but the way I feel about you, which he probably would have killed me for. Where does that leave us?”

“You mean besides me being a dried-up spinster and you being honor-bound to a ghost?”

“Something like that.”

She rolled her head along the back of the couch, muttering something that sounded like a curse word under her breath. Then she sat up straight and powered on the TV with a click of her thumb. “That leaves us choosing a movie on demand. Because I’m not letting you walk out that door right now.”

“You’re not?”

“Nope. You walk out now, you might get all weird about this and not come back. Honor is a fabulous thing, but sometimes pride can be a lot stronger, especially when you convince yourself it’s for the good of the other person.”

Damn, the woman knew me.

“So movie it is,” I agreed. “Just…stay on your side of the couch.”

“I wasn’t the one who crossed the center line,” she teased with a smile that got me hard all over again.

Movie chosen, we sat and watched, both of us stealing sideways glances. There was that saying…the horse out of the barn. Yeah, the horse was out of the barn, and it wasn’t going back in. Not no way. Not no how.

That horse was running amok and screwing with my carefully constructed control.

But I didn’t complain when she moved over. Or when she pressed against my side. Nope. I lifted my arm and savored the feel of her curves, her trust. Still didn’t complain when she lay down in my arms. Hell no, I held on and memorized every second.

Review Blast: Tinsel (Lark Cove #4) by Denvey Perry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sofia Kendrick has always cherished her tiara. As the youngest daughter of a wealthy New York family, she’s lived the life of an American princess. But after two scandalous divorces and a breakup smear her name across the society rags, the shine from her crown has dulled. People call her superficial, even gaudy.

She’s nothing more than tinsel.

Desperate for escape and starving for peace, Sofia heads to Montana for a holiday weekend with her brother. But she doesn’t get the relaxing vacation she planned. Instead, she’s put to work in a bar alongside Dakota Magee—a man who does not want her help. A man who is set on teaching her a few lessons about real life and hard work. But Sofia has a couple of life lessons of her own to teach. Like how to fall in love.

MY REVIEW

“My world had been turned on its head, and I could not get my bearings. “

“Maybe he was different. Maybe I was foolish as ever. Maybe people really didn’t change. All I knew was that if he asked, I’d be all in.”

“She was an enigma. A puzzle. She was a woman who had everything in the world at her fingertips and yet seemed so…miserable and lonely. She seemed so lost.”

“The chase was over. Now it was time to play for keeps.”

If I could describe Tinsel in one word, it would be Perfection. Tinsel is a beautiful love story, but it is so much more. It’s a story of finding oneself and discovering what makes you happy. It is a story of acceptance; of learning to accept who you are and being ok that you are not what others expect you to be. It is a story of heartache, loss and passion. In the end, Tinsel is an unforgettable love story destined to take your heart on one thrilling ride….

From the moment I picked up this book, I knew I was diving into something special. I’ll be the first to admit that Sofia was going to have a hard time winning me over, but I gotta tell you, I am so glad I gave her story a chance. She was not like what I was thinking at all. When we first meet up with Sofia, we see a woman who has never worked a day in her life. She’s spoiled and only thinks of herself. She is a true princess….Or is she? You see, under the phony face Sofia presents to the world, there is a woman who is confused and sad. She doesn’t know who she is or what she wants out of this crazy life. She only knows what others expect from her. Desperate for a change, Sofia finds herself in Montana visiting her brother and his family, hoping like crazy that Montana can provide her with some answers. Instead of taking some time to chill and figure things out, Sofia finds herself working in a bar alongside Dakota. Little does she know that her world is about to be truly turned upside down…

Tinsel was absolutely everything I wanted and was looking for. This book is extremely well written and is filled with so much heart. You can literally feel the emotions dripping off of the pages. I found myself glued to the pages and unable to put this book down. I easily devoured this book in a single sitting and just couldn’t get enough.

Tinsel is filled with lots of beautiful and at times tough messages. From learning to accept who you are to seeing that first impressions don’t always tell the full story. To taking risks and falling in love. To seeing that no ones family is perfect, and that your family is not always blood related. Sometimes your family is just who you make it and who you want to call your own. To seeing that it’s never too late to forgive and mend fences no matter how much damage has been done. As you can probably tell, this book definitely pulled on my heartstrings.

There is so much to love about this final book in the Lark Cove Series and I wish like crazy that I could just spend all day talking to you about them all, but I can’t do that. I want you to experience the joy and beauty of this book on your own. However, I will leave you with this, Tinsel is a beautiful and consuming story. The characters are real, raw and are nowhere near perfect. Their story will captivate you from page one and will take you on the most amazing journey. From love to heartache, to tragedy and forgiveness. To all the emotions and angst and moments that will leave you aching to see what will happen next. To the fight, the risks and the undeniable pull, this book just hit all the marks for me and then some. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better ending to this amazing series.

There’s a reason why Devney Perry has become one of my go to authors. Her books are filled with so much passion, so much love, so much realness. They find a way to burrow deep inside you and will have you thinking of them long past “the end”. And Tinsel is just the latest book of hers to leave that lasting impression.  So while I’m sorry to see these characters and this series go, they will live on forever and hold a special place in my heart.

MY REVIEW

“All I’ve ever wanted is a life that couldn’t be ripped away from me at any given moment.”

“I want to slay fucking dragons for this woman–even if I was one of them.”

“When you find a woman who gives you a reason to wake up in the morning that’s more than just making more money you’ll never be able to spend–you fucking hold on to her with both hands.”

“You’re not a means to an end anymore. You’re inside me. In my head. In the blood running through my fucking veins.” “If you go, you take all that with you, along with my fucking sanity.”

Oh, man!! Talk about a thrilling ride!! I don’t know about you guys, but ever since I finished Deal with the Devil, I have been dying and I mean dying to know what happens next and let me tell you, Luck of the Devil does not disappoint!

Luck of the Devil picks up right where the last book left off and leaves no stone unturned. Questions will be answered and loyalties will be tested. The passion between Forge and India burns brighter than ever. I loved all the ups and downs. The building of trust and the walls breaking down. I loved those moments of where I thought everything was looking on the up and up and then getting my mind totally blown. The pieces of the puzzle are slowly coming together with one delicious twist after another. All leaving my mind scrambling to try to figure out what exactly is going on. I was on pins and needles, not able to turn the pages fast enough and loving every single second.

Luck of the Devil is a fabulous read from beginning to end. It’s filled with passion, lust, action and lots of exciting twists. For every answer, I’m left with a million more questions and I for one, can not wait to get all the answers. Once again, Meghan March has given me a fantastic read that has left me begging and pleading for more. I can not wait to see what this author has in store for us next in Heart of the Devil. I can only assume that we are in for another crazy and thrilling treat. In the mean time, all I can say is sit back and enjoy the latest installment in The Forge Trilogy. I hope you’ll enjoy every second as much as I did…..

Review Blitz: Hollywood Playboy by Natasha Madison

Jessica

An entertainment journalist was the last thing I thought I would be doing.

I thought once I got my degree, I would be reporting on stories that made a difference, but now all I do is report on who broke up with who and who is dating who.

I was over it.

Then I got my next assignment.

He’s Hollywood’s bad boy.

He works hard, and he plays even harder.

He’s rude, he’s condescending, and he’s made it known he doesn’t want me on the tour.

With one month on the road with him, two things might happen

One, I may never work in this industry again.

Two, I may just be like everyone else and fall for Hollywood’s Playboy.

MY REVIEW

“I kiss her with everything I have to give. I kiss her knowing this kiss will change everything. I kiss her knowing this first kiss beats out every kiss I’ve ever had. The need, the want, and the wait have all led to this moment, and I would imprint on this memory forever.”

“How can I let you be when I can’t breathe without you? How can I let you be when half of my soul is missing when I’m not near you? Tell me how, Jessica, and I’ll leave you and never come back.”

Hollywood Playboy was the absolute best book to spend my day getting lost in. From enemies to lovers to an unforgettable love story, Hollywood Playboy hits all the marks and will keep you begging for more.

From the moment I dove into Hollywood Playboy, I just knew this book was going to be a fun ride. I mean, from the moment you are introduced to Jessica and Tyler, their disdain for one another is completely palpable. You’re left wondering why the heck these two hate each other so much and wondering where all this delicious tension will lead. You see, Jessica is amazing at her job. She’s not afraid to ask the hard questions and isn’t afraid to run those intriguing celebrity stories. But, when it comes to Tyler, all bets are off. He’s Hollywood’s playboy and a total jerk. She doesn’t like him and he doesn’t like her. But, when Jessica’s next assignment finds herself and 9 other journalists on the road with Tyler, her sanity will be put to the test…..Can Jessica and Tyler find a way to get along or will they both end up ruining their careers???

Hollywood Playboy had me hooked from beginning to end. Jessica and Tyler’s story was incredibly well written. The story-line so real and raw. You could tell that a lot of research went into the story. I personally felt every emotion right alongside the characters. I felt like I was right there with them on the red carpet or sitting with them in the rooms during their interviews. Jessica and Tyler’s story played out like a movie I couldn’t help but watch. I couldn’t help but fall in love with these two as I desperately hung on each word, waiting to see how their story would play out.

Hollywood Playboy has totally blown me away. I loved characters and their story. I enjoyed this author’s take on a celebrity/enemies to lovers romance. I loved the passion and chemistry between Tyler and Jessica. I loved their push and pull. I even loved their initial disdain for one another. I loved the angst and the drama. I loved all the real and honest moments that kept me glued to the pages. This story was not only refreshing, but kept me on my toes in the best possible way.

Hollywood Playboy is a fantastic and I mean fantastic read. It gave me all the feels and left me with the biggest smile on my face. Hollywood Playboy kicks off the Hollywood Royalty Series in the best possible way and I can not wait to read more.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Review: Moonlight Scandals by Jennifer L. Armentrout

It takes a fearless woman to love the most scandalous man alive in New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s breathtaking novel 

Even a ghost hunter like Rosie Herpin couldn’t have foreseen the fateful meeting between two mourners that has brought her so intimately close to the notorious and seductive Devlin de Vincent. Everyone in New Orleans knows he’s heir to a dark family curse that both frightens and enthralls. To the locals, Devlin is the devil. To Rosie, he’s a man who’s stoking her wildest fantasies. When a brutal attack on her friend is linked to the de Vincents, he becomes a mystery she may be risking her life to solve.

Devlin knows what he wants from this sexy and adventurous woman. But what does Rosie want from him? It’s a question that becomes more pressing—and more dangerous—when he suspects her of prying into the shadows of his past.

Now, the legends surrounding the de Vincents may not be myths at all. But if she’s to discover the truth, she must follow them straight into the arms of the man she can’t resist—the handsome devil himself.

MY REVIEW

“Something flickered across his face that looked an awful lot like respect–reluctant respect, but she didn’t give a flying chupacabra’s ass what Devlin de Vincent thought or felt.”

“He kissed her as if her wouldn’t allow a single part of her to be left unexplored. The way he kissed her wrecked her.”

“His stare was greedy and devouring and she wanted to be devoured. Consumed. Taken.”

“Maybe it’s…fate. You said our paths were destined to cross and maybe that’s true. I don’t know, but I do know there are things that happen that no one can ever explain. So, maybe there’s a reason? Some higher force at work here.”

Man, oh, man! I can’t believe it’s over! What a crazy, thrilling and exciting ride. Finally, finally, finally we have Devlin’s book and let me tell you, his book was so worth the wait.

Now, I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had a million and one questions ever since I started the De Vincent Series. And just when I think I know what is going on; that I’ve figured out all the clues, my world gets turned upside down. This book had so much mystery, so many twists and turns. I didn’t know what was wrong or what was right. But, I do know I couldn’t put this book down. I was absolutely hooked and couldn’t wait to see just how this story was going to unravel itself.

Finally, finally, we get to see inside Devlin’s head, to finally understand him, what makes him tick and his motives. It was everything that I was waiting for. There is so much more and I mean so much more to him than meets the eye. Each one of his actions is fueled by reason that only Devlin knows. Devlin is such a complex character. Only he could make me hate him & want to throw my kindle and yet in the very next breath want to swoon & understand him. And who better than to try to make sense of this complicated man, but Rosie. I absolutely LOVED Rosie! She was tough and completely unafraid of Devlin. She spoke her mind and gave Devlin a run for his money. Together these two were explosive. They had amazing tension and I loved their banter. I loved watching the two of them fight and bicker. I never knew what they were going to say next and they certainly kept me on my toes. But, I loved, loved, loved watching these two together and seeing them try to overcome all the obstacles life threw their way.

Overall, I really enjoyed Moonlight Scandals. The scandals and twists were totally delicious and kept my eyes glued to the pages. I enjoyed catching up with the De Vincent family and finally getting to see what makes Devlin tick. For me, this book was a fun puzzle to solve and I enjoyed every moment. From outstanding characters to an exciting plot. To writing that sucks you in and keeps you on your toes. To the magic that only New Orleans can bring. To paranormal research and an unlikely paring. To an unexpected romance that knocks you off your feet and keeps you begging for more. Take all of that, add in some crazy and I mean crazy twists, and you got yourself one satisfying ending to a series that filled you with question after question…..

India Baptiste, his latest prey, is now caught in the high stakes game that has become her life since colliding with Forge, and she’ll need the luck of the devil to survive. India Forge’s life is now part of Jericho Forge’s calculated game.

“You can put that man in a suit, but he’ll never be tame.”

One look at Jericho Forge and I knew the rumors were true. He was a predator, and he had set his sights on me.
I knew better than to bet more than I could afford to lose that night. I knew better than to bet myself. But desperation leads to bad decisions, and I thought there was no way I could lose.
I was wrong.
Now I have no choice but to make a deal with the devil.

Deal with the Devil is the first book of the Forge Trilogy, which will continue in Luck of the Devil and conclude in Heart of the Devil.

MY REVIEW

“They know my name. Know my profile. They think they know everything about me, but they don’t. No one does.”

“I knew when he walked in the room that he was dangerous on every level, and I wasn’t wrong. Everything about Jericho Forge screams to me to run in the other direction.”

“This is no soft, sweet kiss. It’s a storming of the gates, and my defenses are already in shambles.”

“Forge is a force of nature. A rouge wave, crashing into my world and leaving it completely unrecognizable.”

It’s books like this that make Meghan March one of my go-to writers. Her books are filled with passion, suspense and they turn my world upside down. And Deal with the Devil is the latest book to fit that bill. Deal with the Devil is the first book in the exciting Forge Trilogy. Deal with the Devil filled with questions, mystery, passion and intrigue. It’s a game of cat and mouse that has me dying for resolution.

Told from dual points of view, Deal with the Devil follows the story of Jericho & India. Jericho Forge is a force to be reckoned with and vengeance is his game. He’s sexy, sure and confident. When he sees something he wants, he doesn’t ask for it, he takes it. He has strength and power and is a 100% dangerous alpha male. Jericho has a plan and that all comes crashing down the moment he gets near India…. India is smart, good at cards and is able to read people. She doesn’t trust many and will do whatever it takes when someone she loves is threatened…. For every action there are consequences. Desperation leaves you to make decisions without thinking. When it comes to life or death, how far would you go? What would you do? Would you sell your soul and make a deal with the devil???

Man. Oh, man! Deal with the devil was everything that I wanted and then some. I was positively riveted by Jericho and India’s story. I tried desperately to savor and not devour this book, but I just couldn’t help myself. The sparks between our two main characters were intense and their entertaining banter left me begging for more. I had to know what was going to happen next. I had a million and one questions and little to no answers. Who is Jericho really? What is his true agenda and endgame? How does India really fit into all of this?

Deal with the Devil is must a read for 2019! This story is gripping, entertaining and will leave you breathless in anticipation. From danger to delicious tension, to sexy good times and ending that left me with a million and one questions; Deal with the Devil hit all the marks. I loved every second of this book and look forward to seeing where Jericho and India’s story will go next. Luck of the Devil, you can not get here fast enough.

My Review

“Choice is yours, sunshine. You lead, I’ll follow.”

“In the space of an instant, everything had changed. A tangible bond had formed between them, and she felt it everywhere.”

“I never thought I was missing a damn thing until the day I met you. You soared into my life like a gust of wind or a runaway kite–magical and unstoppable. You make me see and feel so much. I know I’ll never look at anything the same way again.”

“There are only three things in life you can count on in this world. The sun will rise and set, family will always have your back, and when you find your soul mate, who you are will forever change.”

The Braden’s & The Montgomery’s come together in an all new, romance. If you’re looking for a sweet and sexy story that will warm your heart and leave you smiling like a fool, then look no further, Trails of Love is just what you’ve been waiting for.

One of the things I love most about Melissa Foster’s writing is that I can drop in to any book, any story-line and immediately feel like I’m at home. While I wish I’ve had the opportunity to dive into each and every one of the Braden & Montgomery books, I just haven’t yet. But that’s the beauty of these stories. While they are all interconnected in one way or anther, they can all be read and enjoyed as stand-alones. The characters and their stories will pull you in instantly. They’ll make you feel like you’ve known them forever, so you won’t have to fret about being lost.

Trails of Love is the newest release from Melissa Foster and like her other books, this one hooked from the very first page. Morgyn is a beautiful force. I loved and admired her free spirit. She’s the kind of girl that believes in love, fate and auras. In her mind everything happens for a reason and life is too short to worry about everything. I loved how real and true to herself she was. She wasn’t willing to change for anyone and just wanted to be the free spirit that she was. And when Graham came into the picture, he totally turned her world upside down. Their connection was strong, instant and totally sweet. It’s like their two souls met and a light bulb went off. I loved how accepting Graham was of Morgyn’s personality. He loved all of her quirks and how free she was. Being a risk assessor, you’d think these two wouldn’t mesh well, but Graham has a bit of wanderer in him and these two just make it work. I truly enjoyed Graham and Morgyn’s story and love watching the two of them figure things out.

Trails of Love was a wonderful read from beginning to end. As always, I admire the family strength, love and bonds that this author puts into each and everyone of her stories. I loved the realness of the characters and how you could tell that they really cared for one another. I loved the romance between Graham & Morgyn. There was no drama, maybe some light angst, but not really. Their story was just one of straight up sweet, swoon-worthy romance with just the right amount of naughtiness packed into it. All in all, a terrific read to spend your afternoon curled up in.

Excerpt

“What are your three most favorite things?” Morgyn asked as she strummed the guitar.
“That’s a hard one.”
“Okay, and the next two?” She bumped him with her shoulder, looking as sweet as she did sexy wearing one of his flannel shirts over her dress.
He loved her quirky sense of humor.
“Shouldn’t that be one of your favorite things?” he teased.
She shifted her gaze up toward the sky and strummed a faster tune, singing, “It’s your turn, not mine.”
“I’ve got a lot of favorite things.” He ran his fingers along her leg. “Your sexy legs.”
Her eyes darkened, and she played a little slower.
“And the way flecks of darker blue glitter in your eyes when you get turned on.”
“Cracker,” she said just above a whisper.
“I can’t help it that you’re beautiful.”
“Stop. You’re embarrassing me. Tell me something real.”
“That was real, and number three would be your free spirit.”
“Says Mr. Prepared, who brought a pop-up shower stall, a battery-operated heater, and a Coleman stove like my grandfather used. I’m willing to bet there’s a kitchen sink around here somewhere.”
“No sink, but I can rig one up if you need it.” He leaned in for a kiss, lingering because her kisses were unlike any others. She kissed with the same energy she seemed to do everything else, giving herself over to it completely, savoring every second.
Her eyes remained closed for a few heated seconds after their lips parted. When she opened them, a sated smile appeared like a gift. He wondered if she kissed other guys like that, or if she felt the same unfamiliar, unstoppable connection he did.
“I like kissing you, sunshine.” He brushed her hair behind her ear and kissed her again, slower and sweeter than the last. “I’m adding that to my list. I think I need more than three things.”
