It is time to go back to Vermont and catch up the the group up there and see what has been going on.

Every Little Thing

The Butler, Vermont Series, Vol. 1

By: Marie Force

AMAZON

every-little-thing

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!

OMG!!!!! I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS BOOK!

This book pick right up where the last one left off and you will catch a glimpse of other couples and what has been going on with them. Grayson is a cousin of the Abbott clan and he was at Hunter’s wedding when he was visited by a very pretty nine-year old Simone, who told him that her mom was very pretty. She seemed to be matchmaking just like his uncle and grandfather have been doing.

He moved home to have a less hectic lifestyle when he met Simone and her beautiful mother Emma. They live in New York. Emma is Lucy (who is engaged to his cousin  Colton) sister. Since Lucy spends more time in Vermont than she does in New York there is no way Emma could even consider moving here and leave her father behind.

Grayson and Emma have a very hot week in Vermont and he wants her in his life. She won’t move and he is considering moving to New York to be with her, even though he just moved out of a city. Emma would love to live in Vermont, but she will nt leave her father behind.

Linc, Grayson’s uncle offered Emma a job when one of their employees gave their notice. She would love to take it but there is no way she could. It made her sad because she could have everything, except for her father near. Well, the match maker that he is he knew she would not move because of her dad, so he offered him a job too, so they could all be together.

This is an awesome book and I hope you will get your copy today.

Until Next Time: Happy Reading.

Book Review: Whisper of Love By: Melissa Foster

It is so good to be back in the heart of the Braden family. I know you will love this book as much as I did.

Whisper of Love: Tempest Braden

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

By: Melissa Foster

AMAZON

whispers-of-love

The Bradens are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

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

CAUTION YOU WILL NEED TISSUES!!!!!!!

This is such an amazing book, but why wouldn’t it be with it being a Melissa Foster book. It is a very heartfelt and emotional book. You will laugh, cry, and sigh during this book at all of the sweet and emotional stuff that is in it. You know I do not like to give out spoilers so I will not go into the book, only I will tell you that you will fall in love with Nash and “Flip” lol, inside joke that you will learn when you read the book. Go grab your copy today if you have not read this book yet I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO SO.

I am in love with them and I really hope he goes back to The Shade with them when they are able to leave.

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.

Anna was in an abusive relationship with a guy named Tony. He was a drunk and very abusive. There is some things about Tony that Anna has no idea about, but she will find out later. One night when she got home from work she just wanted a shower. Tony was supposed to be at work but she found him passed out drunk on the couch. She needed some light to clean up the mess he had made and when she did she woke up the beast. As she tried to get away from him he got her and punched her and made her fall in the shower. She got out and he wanted to play (which meant he wanted her to run from him so he could chase). She ran into the kitchen and he came at her. She grabbed a knife and when he came at her with his fist raised she held her knifed hand out and when she looked back up he was looking at her in shock with the knife handle sticking out from his crotch. He fell and she ran thinking that she had killed him.

She drove away and went to her sisters. As she was driving her car quit, but a little while later it started up again and she was able to make it to her sister’s house. Her sister knew that he was abusive but she could never get her to leave him. She was just glad that she finally did leave him. After a few days they drove back to her apartment and saw that the evidence of her stabbing him was gone, she grabbed some of her stuff and left.

After about a month her sister hinted that it was time to move on with her life. She signed up for classes, and got a gob as a legal assistant. Little did she know what kind of lawyer he was. He was a junky. But, she needed the pay check. On her first day of work no one was there to show her how to turn on the computer or transfer calls. One call was to make sure that the appointment for Congressman she didn’t know what to do and she told the assistant sure. Her boss about flipped out when he came in. The Congressman was very good-looking and gave her his card and told her to call him. They went out for a few weeks before Anna realized that she was being used. By then she had met her professor and had an eye for him. Something kept holding her back from having sex with the Congressman and she knew the reason why when the truth finally came out.

Corey asked Anna to go out with him that evening. He took her to Vegas and they gambled two hundred thousand dollars a piece. Lady luck was not with Anna that night. She was down to her last ten thousand dollar chip and put it in this big slot machine. When the three pyramids popped up and she was told she won a million dollars she was floored. That lead to her and Corey celebrating even more int he bedroom. The next day everything went to hell for Anna.

That is where I am going to stop and let you find out what happened to her. I didn’t know if I would like romantic thrillers, but I have to say I have really gotten into this series. I suggest you grab a copy and see for yourself.

I was given this book to read in place of an honest review.

Until Next Time: Happy Reading.

About the Book:

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.

“You live near here, right?”

“Go a block west and then up three more blocks. Tiny rental. Okay, maybe not tiny, and it’s about to get bigger. Did I tell you that Jamie’s moving out?”

She looked at him askance as they crossed the street. “No, you didn’t. Is that a good thing?”

“Yes. I prefer to live alone.”

She mock gasped and widened her eyes. “Me too.”

He grinned at her, enjoying her company so much. “Shocker.”

She laughed softly, the sound cascading over him like a cozy blanket. “Where’s he moving to?”

“Brooke’s old loft. He just managed to snag it right after she gave notice.”

“Damn.”

Luke stopped on the sidewalk. “What’s wrong?”

“She told me that she was moving and asked if I was interested in taking her loft. Stupidly, I said no.”

She was the person Jamie had mentioned. That sucked. She looked so disappointed.

Maybe he could ask Jamie not to take it. Which, of course, meant that Luke would still have a roommate.

She narrowed her eyes at him. “Don’t you dare talk to Jamie. It’s his fair and square. Anyway, my initial response was to pass, and sometimes your gut just knows what to do. I’m going to trust that.”

“Are you sure?”

She nodded vigorously. “Absolutely. Jamie deserves it—and you deserve to have your own place. I can see how much it means to you.”

She was quite simply the best woman he’d ever met. “Can I kiss you?”

She stared at him, her lips parting slightly. He heard the small but distinctive intake of her breath.

He leaned forward.

She jerked away but didn’t let go of his hand. “Ask me again when we get to my place. Sorry, I need to…process.”

He forced himself to take a deep breath. His pulse was working overtime, and points south of his waistband were getting ahead of themselves.

“So your parents seem nice.”

Now he knew she was the best woman. His mother ought to have scared her off. “My mom didn’t make you cringe with the waitress comment? You have a freaking master’s degree, for crying out loud.”

She laughed. “I’m used to that. You should see how some customers treat waitstaff. It’s disgusting.”

He hated that she had to put up with that. They turned the corner and headed back toward The Arch and Vine. “But she’s my mother.”

“And I’m sure she’s lovely. I told you a bit about my mother, right? She would’ve asked how many dates we’d gone on and whether we planned to go out again. And our answers would’ve just spurred more questions. It’s always an interrogation with her.”

“Yikes, sorry.”

They crossed the street again, and he was torn between walking faster to see if he’d get to kiss her and slowing to a crawl because he didn’t want the evening to end. Although, if he kissed her and things progressed…maybe the evening wouldn’t end at all.

Whoa there, pal. Settle.

They got to her door, and she turned toward him. “And here we are.” She looked up at him, and her eyes were pale and gorgeous in the lamplight.

“About that kiss…”

She slid her hands up his shirtfront and clasped the sides of his jaw. Coming up on her toes, she pressed her lips against his. Her touch raced through him like electricity—hot and blinding. He grasped her waist and pulled her close until her hips grazed his.

She pulled her lips from his but didn’t retreat. Her eyes opened, and the vulnerability in their depths stole his breath. “I haven’t done that in years. I don’t…” She shook her head.

He lifted his hands and cupped her face. “Thank you.” He kissed her again, softly moving his mouth over hers, wanting more but afraid to take anything she didn’t want to offer.

Her hands slipped down his neck and clutched at his collar. She pulled him closer and twined her hands around his nape. Then she angled her head and opened her mouth. That was the invitation he’d been waiting for. The fantasy he’d been dreaming of.
