Return to the lives of the Novak’s!!!!!

Man, this was one awesome book. I was so glad that the clan from The Shade found the kids. I am also so glad of the relationship of Hazel and Tejus. I am in love with them and I really hope he goes back to The Shade with them when they are able to leave. I am not sure what Ruby and Ash are going to do but, I have a feeling she is going to stay with him. It would be nice if they all went back to The Shade. It also leaves a cliffhanger that will have you screaming at your book, so make sure you are somewhere you wont get looks like you are crazy when you finish the book. I highly recommend this series if you have not read this series yet it is not too late. If you have kindle unlimited you will really love it because you can read them for free.It will not take you long to catch up because you will be so into these books you will want to keep reading. So go and get your copies today.

Until Next Time: Happy Reading.

Silicon Valley Billionaires

Lauren

By: Leigh James

AMAZON

silicon-valley-billionaires-lauren

Two Headstrong, Driven CEOs. One Undeniable, Scorching Attraction.

Being a scientist gives Lauren Taylor a purpose in life. At twenty-five, she’s the CEO of a billion-dollar biomedical company, Paragon Laboratories. On the brink of a major discovery, Lauren lets nothing interfere with her work. Until she meets Gabriel Betts, the gorgeous and brilliant CEO of another Silicon Valley startup, and is forced to face her inconvenient and overwhelming attraction to him.

Billionaire Gabriel Betts is a successful scientist in his own right. He’s made his way in the world by being an early adopter and never losing focus. Captivated by Lauren’s brilliance and unselfconscious beauty, he’s determined to win the reclusive female CEO over at any cost.

But what neither Gabe nor Lauren are prepared for is the white-collar danger that’s lurking in Silicon Valley… The danger that threatens not only their companies, but their very existence.

Whispers of Love: Tempest Braden

Love in Bloom: The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor: Book 5

By: Melissa Foster

AMAZON

In Whisper of Love…
Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind―to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

Every Little Thing

The Butler, Vermont Series, Book: 1

By: Marie Force

AMAZON

Featured Image -- 2759

Grayson Coleman has just moved home to Butler, Vermont after spending years working for a high-powered law firm in Boston. He’s looking for a simpler, less stressful existence in the sleepy little mountain town where he grew up with his siblings and Abbott cousins. Once the holidays are over, he plans to hang out a shingle and open a new general law practice. After helping to raise his seven younger siblings, the last thing on Grayson’s mind is a family of his own.

Emma Mulvaney is enjoying a break from her reality as a busy single mother in New York City while she and her adorable daughter, Simone, spend the holidays in Vermont with Emma’s sister, Lucy, and Lucy’s future in-laws, the Abbotts. After meeting Abbott cousin Grayson Coleman and talking to him for hours, Emma is nervous and excited to have dinner alone with him after sharing her deepest, most personal secrets with him.

Will that first night be the start of something new for the jaded lawyer and the selfless single mom or will a holiday week flirtation turn into something much bigger than either of them ever expected?

Come back to Butler, Vermont for more of the charming Abbott family, their matchmaking father and grandfather and of course, Fred the Moose.

The indie-published Butler, Vermont Series is a continuation of Marie’s Green Mountain Series with all the things you loved best about that series—Fred the Moose, the boisterous Abbott family, the beautiful Vermont mountain landscape and the sexy romances that set your heart to racing. Catch up with the series by checking out the Green Mountain Series and then come along on the next phase of the story with the all new Butler, Vermont Series!

Kelsey McDade realizes that her love life is one and done. Her last—and only—relationship left her broken and afraid and more than ready to be alone for the long haul. But sexy-charming vineyard manager Luke Westcott pushes all of her buttons in the right way and makes her wonder if she ought to try again.

In nearly twenty-eight years, Luke’s most successful romance has been with the outdoors. Currently single, he’s happy to pour all of his energy into his new winery until Kelsey provokes feelings he didn’t know he was capable of. He can envision their future together—if she’ll let down her guard.

When the ghost of Kelsey’s past causes her to slam on the brakes, Luke is ready to fight for her, even if it means sacrificing himself in the process. Convinced she’s only made wrong choices in the past, Kelsey must decide if Luke—and their love—is worth the greatest risk of all.

Book Review: A Shade of Vampire:39 (A Rip of Realms) by: Bella Forrest

Welcome back to The Shade and Nevertide. If you have not journeyed there before you are in for a treat. But, I would suggest that you start from the beginning. This is an action packed series and if you like vampires and other paranormal you will love this series. It is also free on Kindle Unlimited.

mythoughts2

OMG, this series just keeps getting better and better. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t like giving out spoilers and pretty much anything you say about the book will give it away.

I will say that the castle has fallen and Hellswan had to move on. There is a new emperor (but I will not give out who that is). I am still falling more and more in love with Hazel and Tejus. He is starting to become more and more soft around Hazel and showing his love for her and I love that in a couple. Ash and Ruby are going to be at a crossroads very soon. Not sure what Hazel and Tejus are going to do either but i really hope they leave that place and start a great life together in The Shade. I would love it if Ash and Ruby do the same but something is telling me that is not going to be the case. I am glad that Hazel is coming into her own as a sentry.  Even though I hate what that old woman did to her. I really want  her to inherit her mother’s and grandfathers fire power too. That would make her so unstoppable. Maybe it will still happen. I am so counting down the days until Feb 19, 2017, so I can read the next book. Season five is almost over with and can’t wait to see how it ends and what the new beginning will be and who will star in it the most. The ending will have you like me counting down the days. I can’t wait to see the faces of all of the kids when they see who is coming. And I can’t wait to see the faces of the people of The Shade when they learn that Hazel is a Sentry and how that came about. Hopefully they will not kill Tejus for kidnapping their kids. But, I really don’t see that happening.

If you have not ever read any of these books I suggest with everything that I have that you pick up these books and read them. They are free on Kindle Unlimited so if you have that you can read them for free and you will be able to blaze through them. Yes there is a lot of books, but you can read two in a day if you read fast. They are so worth the read.

Thank you for reading my review and I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

Until Next Time: Happy Reading.

Up Next on My Reader.

It is time to find out what everyone at The Shade and Nevertide have been up too. I can’t wait.

Series Recommendation (Ribbon Ridge)

This is something I thought of doing in my sleep last night. I will go back and do it for past series too, but for now since I just finished this one I thought it would be best to start with this one. These are series that I recommend and the links to their books on Amazon.

This is a blog with the pictures of the book covers and an excerpt about the books along with the links to their page on amazon. It is the series I just got done reading. If you have been following along then you know most of this blog. But if this is your first time visiting my blog I am going to start recommending a series after I am done if I love it enough. So lets go.

only-in-my-dreams

AMAZON

Fed up with her self-imposed single life, successful event planner Sara Archer heads to a bar for a night of dancing … and bumps into Dylan Westcott, a high school crush she hasn’t seen in years. Harmless flirting leads to a hot, completely uncharacteristic one-night stand. But when she wakes up alone, Sara knows there won’t be a repeat.

Dylan, a divorced, ex-military construction contractor, limits himself to casual flings—his failed marriage proves he’s better off alone anyway—but he can’t stop dreaming about Sara. And when his firm is hired to oversee the renovation project run by the Archer siblings, the two are unable to resist their explosive chemistry.

But when their secret affair grows beyond “friends with benefits” and neither is willing to admit they want more, family drama and emotional scars may ruin their chance at a love they believed was only in their dreams.

Yours To Hold (Ribbon Ridge, Book 2)

Now, with heartbreak on the verge of tearing his family apart, the black sheep is back, and he’s determined to regain their trust by uncovering the truth behind Alex’s death. But the moment he confronts Maggie Trent—the therapist his parents blame for the tragedy—Kyle is stunned by his powerful attraction to the beautiful doctor … and drawn to her like no woman he’s ever met before.

When gorgeous, charismatic Kyle approaches Maggie about his brother’s death, she agrees to help him search for answers. And as they piece together Alex’s last days, their undeniable chemistry turns too hot to ignore. After their relationship becomes more serious than either anticipated, Kyle may be forced to choose between the woman he’s desperate to hold on to and the family he almost let slip away.

When Love Happens (Ribbon Ridge, Book 3)

Tori Archer is married…well, on paper anyway. She hasn’t actually seen her husband since the disastrous morning after their impulsive Vegas wedding. The memories of their intense passion may still make her weak in the knees, but Tori knows their marriage was a mistake.

After six months filming abroad, television producer Sean Hennessy wants nothing more than to track down his sexy, captivating wife and get her into bed…fast. So when his boss sends him to Oregon to persuade the famous Archer sextuplets—the former stars of a reality TV show—to do a reunion special, Sean sees the perfect chance to win Tori back.

But Tori wants nothing to do with him and is determined to push him away. Yet their attraction is as hot as ever and Sean will do anything to prove their relationship was more than just a fling…because he knows that when real love happens, it changes everything.

The Idea Of You (Ribbon Ridge, Book 4)

Evan Archer has always preferred peace and solitude to the loud antics of his large, hard-to-navigate family. But when Archer Enterprises needs a new creative director, Evan jumps at the chance to claim the job he’s always wanted. Moving home is easier than he expected, but Evan isn’t prepared for the stunning A-list celebrity hiding out in his family’s garage apartment.

Following a major tabloid scandal, movie star Alaina Pierce escapes to Ribbon Ridge. She’s immediately drawn to the quiet, picturesque town and the incredibly sexy—if a little quirky—Evan. He may be built like a Greek god, but he’s honest and straightforward… so different from the Hollywood types she normally dates.

Their attraction is undeniable, but Alaina can’t elude the paparazzi forever, and Evan has no interest in being in the limelight. When the secret she’s been keeping is exposed, the idea of Evan—of real love and a family like the Archers—could vanish in an instant.

When We Kiss (Ribbon Ridge, Book 5)

Denver real estate mogul Liam Archer has always been a thrill-seeker, and the loss of his identical twin brother has only intensified his reckless behavior. Sky diving, heli-skiing, motorcycle riding…he’s tried everything once. Except falling in love. Liam doesn’t do relationships, but a no-strings fling with Aubrey Tallinger—the smart, gorgeous lawyer handling his brother’s estate—is totally his speed.

At first, hooking up with Liam whenever he’s in Ribbon Ridge is perfect; but Aubrey fears she could fall hard for the sexy daredevil, if he’d only stop refusing to acknowledge the demons he’s trying to outrun. To protect herself from heartbreak, Aubrey ends their affair. But this time Liam isn’t leaving town, and instead of seduction, he wants to be…friends.

The white hot attraction between them still sizzles, but Liam knows that winning Aubrey back won’t happen in his bed. He’ll have to convince her that he’s more than the careless, adrenaline junkie she believes him to be. Because when they kiss, Liam feels whole again… and he isn’t ready to give her up without a fight.

You’re Still The One (Ribbon Ridge, Book 6)

Everyone thought college sweethearts Bex Holmgren and Hayden Archer were headed for the altar… until a tragic accident sent young Bex running from a future she wasn’t ready to claim. But when she’s offered her dream job at Archer Brewing, Bex can’t pass up the chance to reconnect with the big, crazy family that once welcomed her with open arms—and the one man she’s never stopped loving.

When he returns home after a year in France, Hayden is less than thrilled to find his ex-girlfriend working for his family’s company. He’s finally moved on, and being around her rekindles long-buried feelings he’d rather ignore. But Bex isn’t the same girl he knew—she’s more mature, more beautiful, more tempting than ever—and he can’t resist the pull of the intense passion he’s only ever shared with her.

Have five years changed them enough, or are they doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past? The only thing Bex knows for sure is that for her, Hayden is still the one.
