Once upon a time she’d had the happy ending.

The doting fiancé.
The expensive wedding.
The happily-ever-after resting just at the tips of her fingers.

Then in an explosion of glass, in a splintering of metal, everything had been taken from her.

She’d shattered herself, had broken into a million tiny pieces.

But eventually, she’d patched herself together, had hauled herself back into life, had built something she was content in.

Content, but not happy. Never quite inching into happy again.

Still, she had her friends, her job as a skating coach for the Gold, and she had her life. That was enough.

And it had been enough.

Until he knocked on her door.

Until he came back and changed everything.

Review

Fanny has spent the better part of the last decade pretending that she doesn’t want love, and that the other half of her heart isn’t with a man who couldn’t love her back. But when he reappears in her life, looking for another chance, she’s caught between hope for a new, unexpected future and the fear that clings to her, reminding her of all she lost.

Brandon is on a mission: convince Fanny that he’s back, and better than ever. He can’t undo the past; he can only promise her a future that’s full of a better version of the dreams they once had. But is it as easy as he wishes? Or are some things too hard to overcome?

This is a story that will tug at your heartstrings. I really enjoyed the way Elise Faber made me eager to see Fanny & Brandon get their HEA. I really love this series, and look forward to book 13.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

SYNOPSIS: 

Vaughn James is stubborn, arrogant, and unfortunately the hottest man I’ve ever known. 

I’ve been obsessed with my older brother’s best friend since I gave him decorating tips for his treehouse when we were kids. You never forget your first kiss, and he was supposed to be mine. Until the moment he rejected me. 

He may not have been my first kiss, but he was the first to break my heart.
Now I’m grown up, with grown up stalker problems, and the last thing I care about is Vaughn James and his irresistible self. 

When my brother asks Vaughn to renovate my shamble of a new home, I’m forced to spend time with him.
Long evenings.
Tensions rising.
Second chances. 

And when my life comes into danger, Vaughn’s the only one there to protect me. But it’s up to me to protect my heart. I won’t let myself fall for the cold-hearted bachelor…even if he isn’t who he appears to be.

**This will be a live release for Kindle with no Amazon preorder. It will go live there on release day or a little before and will be on special release price for a short time.

Review

Jace & Destiny experience personal devastations on the same day, and in a series of coincidences, end up connecting, then reconnecting over and over. Though they each swear off romantic entanglements, they can’t keep their eyes or hands off each other. Will a vacation fling be the start of something permanent, or will the two doctors keep on walking away from each other?

This book is heavy on drama, heat, chemistry and fate. It’s entertaining, as the story kept me glued to its pages wondering what life was going to throw at the couple next. I recommend it. It’s beachy vibes make it a great book to curl up with.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

BLURB
One year of post-doctorate research separates me from the career that will get me the heck out of Rhode Island and away from my obtrusive parents.
I expected Dr. Greyson Bedford, a sexy British professor from Oxford University, to upend life on campus, but I didn’t expect him to do the same with my heart.
Despite his persistence, I keep to myself, but when a migraine strikes at work and I have no one else to turn to, he gives me something unexpected: a connection I haven’t felt in years. His touch opens a conduit to my past and the accident that almost robbed me of my dreams.
I swore I’d never let anything get in my way again, especially a brash heartthrob who will return to England at the end of the school year.
I had a plan. Not the best laid plan, but one semester with him changes everything.
Limey Bastard is a standalone story inspired by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s British Bedmate with appearances from Simon, Bridget, and family.

Review

Struggling with the lingering effects of an accident that almost took her life, Dr. McKenna (a.k.a Kenna) Schwartz has had to relearn and restructure life. Although constantly battling her parents’ tendency to control and butt in, she’s just about found her groove professionally. Then Greyson Bedford and his charming, mischief-loving self move to her school for a year and suddenly, Kenna’s not so sure anymore about what her future holds. The only thing that’s clear is that when Greyson is near, she can think and feel more clearly for the first time since her accident.

Dr. Greyson Bedford didn’t expect much when he decided to take time off from his career to work with Kenna, but after meeting her, he’s glad he decided to visit America after all. Though she’s initially hard to read, he finds himself looking for excuses for them to spend time together. And as he unwraps the total package, he knows that leaving America without her would be the biggest mistake of his life.

I liked the way that Grey and Kenna’s story unfolded. For a short read, it held a lot in terms of heartwarming emotions. I only felt that the epilogue – it started out really sweet – ended a bit too abruptly. However, I do recommend the read.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this read.

Review

In an enjoyable role reversal, Trent is an insecure, awkward pilot with impeccable manners who is afraid of doing all the wrong things. Meeting Emily pulls him out of his shell, but is he really okay with the person he is, and will he be enough for her?

Emily is trying to be the woman that doesn’t rely on daddy’s coattails to get ahead in life while teaching her son about hard work and respect. A sweet, yet unsure pilot isn’t in her plans, but after an unplanned weekend rendezvous, she thinks she could be falling for him and all his quirks. Will life give her and romance a second chance?

This was a fun, steamy read. Emily & Trent had great chemistry, even with his hang-ups. I liked that Emily was a great supportive and patient partner to Trent even when he was unsure about which way was up. I loved Trip & Kendall’s cameo in this, too, and their contribution to Trent & Emily’s relationship. All the other secondary characters were great, too.

I recommend this read, and I predict that you’ll enjoy this latest addition to the Cocky Hero Club series.

Dawson
The life of a playboy pilot most definitely has its ups and downs…quite literally and figuratively. The lack of attachment and platinum membership in the mile-high club can be satisfying, but I find it’s lonely, never having anyone to go home to.
No matter how I look at it, my taking-it-easy outlook on life seems perfect. What becomes a problem is when punches are thrown one stupid night and suddenly — I, a big-shot pilot — can’t see.
Vixie
Doctor of Ophthalmology may be my title, but ophthalmologist-on-call with the local emergency room is what pays the bills. Late nights, long hours, and constantly changing shifts is tiresome, but it’s a means to an end.
My dreams of owning my own practice and caring for patients on my terms is a passion I’ll pursue eventually. For now, I have to settle for unexpected injuries and patients who open my eyes to new possibilities, even when they refuse to open theirs…

REVIEW
Vixie & Dawson meet as she stitches up his eye after a bar fight. As they slowly get to know one another, they find that the whole idea of settling down is one that has grown on them quickly.

I liked the quotes in-between chapters, and found the suspense angle to be a great addition that helped keep my attention.

This is a light, low-fuss read that is more on the sweet side. It’s a good addition to the Cocky Hero Club series.
