Secrets are burning out of control

After she broke his heart in college, Faye Walker is the last person fire chief Reese Bristow ever expected to see again, especially as his new EMT. But that’s not Reese’s only surprise. Faye has an eight-year-old son, Elliott, whose counseling at The Lemonade Stand shelter is her first priority.

It’s nearly impossible to accept that she had a child with another man—and married that man—right after their breakup. Trusting Faye won’t be easy. Especially when she reveals a secret about the boy that might tear them apart for good.

Okay, its me again with another 5 Harlie read from Ms. Quinn.  But what sets this apart from the others in the series, is the content.  Ms. Quinn took a very touchy, taboo subject and made it very grown up.  Yes, grown up.  Faye isn’t looking for a man to make her “right” again.  She just wants to know that her son, Elliot, has the proper care after everything that they have been through.  Faye and Reece’s story isn’t an easy one to read but read it, I did.  My heart broke for them; it still does.  This story hasn’t left my heart.  I can’t imagine what Elliot heard and how his “father” hurt his mother all those years.  He still has a ways to go but with the help of the Lemonade Stand and Lucy, he will come through.

Reese is an angry person when it comes to Faye.  I was really surprised at his reaction to Faye when she starts working with him.  I could sorta understand in the beginning but once Faye starting telling him what she and Elliot had gone through, I could see his heart melting a bit.  What I didn’t except was reaction to Elliot once the whole truth came out.  At that point, I really wanted to slap him but in the end, I think he finally understood what needed to be done.

Another in the book, is there are NO smexy times.  I know, right?  But once you start reading the book, you will understand.  Faye doesn’t see herself as capable of having sexual thoughts, urges anymore.  But what I truly like was seeing Bloom again as her counselor and helping her through her feelings toward Reese and how to cope with them and figure out what she really wanted in a relationship with Reese.  I miss Bloom.  It was nice to see her hubby again, too.  Once the whole awful truth comes out about that night with Reese and Faye in college, I nearly wept.  Miscommunication at that time, I can understand but the way that they finally come together…beautiful.  I was crying a little.

Overall, Ms. Quinn tackles a hard subject and hits it head on.  She doesn’t sugarcoat it with her characters but let’s her characters speak for themselves.  This series is fast becoming one of my all time favorites.  Her stories in this series just keep getting better and better.  I can’t wait to see in future books how Elliot is doing and how the Lemonade Stand is and the characters that surround it.  Bravo, Ms. Quinn.  You did it again.

Happy Release Week & #Review of Sheik’s Rescue (Desert Justice #2) by Ryshia Kennie! @ryshiakennie

 

As a sheik, he always got what he wanted—until he met his beautiful and challenging new partner… 

Zafir Al-Nassar knows everything about Jade Van Everett. He’s studied the cases she’s worked for his family’s company and for the FBI. And it’s hard not to notice that she’s absolutely gorgeous. Teaming up for a routine security detail, Jade is desperate to prove herself and Zafir can’t help but admire her determination. But when their assignment turns deadly, it becomes difficult to stay focused on the job. Because although they were hired to protect a Morrocan royal from a trained assassin, Zafir also has every intention of keeping Jade safe and by his side. Forever.

Another sheik for me to drool over.  I will have to warn you though, these brothers are mine.  Sorry peeps but I claim all of them.  Sheiks are a very big weakness for me and my guiltiest pleasure when it comes to heroes in a book.  Shocked you?  You shouldn’t be since I’m such a tropy reader.  The tropy the better.  Bring it.

Anyway, I will have to say that this book is much more action orientated.  Not much in the smexy times but when Zafir and Jade kiss, it’s like lightening in a bottle.  You can feel the connection and the HEA that they both deserve.  One of the things that I loved about Zafir that has much as a playboy that he is, he fell hard for Jade.  It was almost like love at first sight but it made sense.  He had already read everything about her that he could before he even met her and I actually liked that.  I know, it goes against the grain of instant love but with him, it wasn’t.  He just knew you know.

Jade is such a bad*ss in this book.  She is fearless, completely unaware of her appeal to Zafir.  She just wants to do the job.  Code white is what they called it but it quickly turned to red in a heartbeat.  And the person they were protecting was a hoot.  Stanley is a complex character that takes awhile to get to know but peeling those layers is fun.  I also liked how Ms. Kennie made Stanley human.  The dogs…

Like I said, this book is clocked full of action and it never stops.  It seems like they are constantly on the run and the end climax left me breathless.  I also liked seeing Talib and Emir.  I can’t wait to get my hands on Talib’s story.  If I had one, tiny thing about the book is that I would have liked to have seen or at least heard about Kate.  I miss her and I would have like to hear her say something to Fasir when it comes to falling for Jade.

This book has everything.  Passion, exotic settings, characters that you can love and swoon over and a climax that I never saw coming.  Breathtaking is what this book is.

Ben Lawson is making a comeback…

After a few tabloid headlines, they think they know me. They don’t know a damn thing.  As CEO of a movie production company, I’ll show them who I really am when we hit it big at the box office. My ex thought her smear tactics would ruin me, but I’m unbreakable. Rising from the debris, I swore I’d never let a woman distract me like that again. But then, my leading actress walked on the set and changed everything.

Seductive, sexy, and unapologetic, Aria Rose could break me. I wanted to help her, protect her…love her. Instead, I destroyed her.

Aria Rose is baring it all….

I knew better.  I knew not to trust another Hollywood heartthrob with a reputation like his. He was my boss and became my ruin. I should have stayed far away from him. Ben Lawson promised me the world.  He even promised me his heart.

But he destroyed everything–my heart, my career, us.
