Kayla Sinclair is a saint and real life Angel.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and inspires me to be a better person.
Rescuing dogs, feeding the homeless, volunteering at the local food pantry are just a few of the ways she gives back to others, although no one has ever been there for her.
Falling for her was inevitable, losing her will destroy me.

Letting someone in didn’t come easy, but she made me want to try for the first time in years.
Her bubbling personality and kind spirit make it impossible to forget a girl like her.
But when tragedy strikes and she loses all memory that our relationship ever existed, my worst nightmare comes to life.

I’ll do anything to remind her of the love we shared. I know it’ll be an uphill battle, but I won’t walk away without a fight. Whoever said all is fair in love and war never played by my rules.

Checkmate, Angel.

*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*

**This is book w in the Logan & Kayla Saga–a second-chance romance. Must read This is Dangerous first. However, you don’t need to read any of the other Checkmate duet series to enjoy this one, but it’s recommended as they are both introduced in the earlier books.**

Happy Book Birthday & ARC #Review of Breaching the Contract (The Conflict of Interest series #1) by Chantal Fernando! @givemebooksblog @ChantalFernando @chantal.fernando.author

 

 

Title: Breaching the Contract
Series: The Conflict of Interest Series #1
Author: Chantal Fernando
Publisher: Pocket Star
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 18, 2017
Blurb
New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns with a brand new series about a brigade of lawyers who, despite being bad boys at heart, always end up just on the right side of the law.
 
Katerina Dawson knows exactly what she wants from life. And as the new associate at the top law firm in the city, she’s ready to live out her dreams of becoming a criminal lawyer. But going on coffee runs and babysitting kids during the day was definitely not what she had in mind. She knows that anyone else would kill to be in her shoes, but she has to draw the line somewhere. That’s easier said than done, though, when Kat has to confront her handsome boss…
 
Tristan Channing and Jaxon Bentley run a successful law firm together and the two partners couldn’t be busier right now. When Jaxon suddenly takes a leave of absence, Tristan begrudgingly assumes responsibility of the new associate, the hot new associate, who has curves for days. Needing to keep his distance from her, Tristan sends Kat on needless errands and has her doing work even an intern wouldn’t touch, like picking up his kids. But his plan backfires when he sees his children grow attached to Kat and sees her getting comfortable in his home. It triggers something deep within him, and it feels right to have her there. Will Tristan be able to keep his work and personal lives separate, or will he find that his heart holds the final verdict?

Okay, so I don’t read a lot of lawyer books.  Well, I read Emma Chase’s books but I digress.  A couple of things before we really get into the review.  One, the book isn’t long.  It’s novella in length so some of the plot moves pretty fast.  There is NO instalove at all.  That’s the one thing that was slow building and I appreciated that.  Second, the book is written in the first person.  It’s mainly in Kat’s viewpoint.  Normally, I don’t mind this but I really wanted to get to know Tristan.  Third, this book sets up the other 3 lawyers that we will read about in the coming months.
 Again, lawyer books just aren’t on my radar but I really enjoyed reading this one and I can’t wait for Hunter, Callum’s and Jaxson’s books when they release.  Jaxson’s is next and my review will be up on the blog.  Tristan and Jaxson are partners in a law firm and Kat is hired to be Jaxson’s new associate.  I loved their interaction in the beginning and was sad when he left.  When she is regulated to work with Tristan, she didn’t sign up to be a nanny or even a coffee runner.  She has her law degree and doesn’t seem to think that Tristan thought much of her in that way.  That’s where the book really takes off.
I loved how they slowly began to trust each other and how they danced around each other.  It really wasn’t until the scene with his son that I really felt the connection between them.  Trust me, Tristan son plays a HUGE part in their relationship.  I loved how Kat was there for not only his children but for Tristan himself.  Tristan is more of a loner and I can see why.  No spoilers but it’s sorta sad in a way.  Tristan is a good guy and the major conflict is that there is NO major conflict.  Kat and Tristan are adults, who act like adults.  There is no big misunderstanding, no communication between them.
Overall, Ms. Fernando sets up a great series with Kat and Tristan.  I can’t wait to read the others in the series.  Plus, look at the covers.  OH MY!!!  And on a side note, this is my first book from the author.  I’m hooked.

Breakup in a Small Town
Slippery Rock #3)

September 1st 2017 by Harlequin Superromance

This isn’t the man she married… 

Jenny Buchanan never considered what “for better or for worse” meant when she married Adam Buchanan at nineteen. Six years and two little boys later, “for worse” arrives in the form of a tornado that ravages Slippery Rock and injures Adam. Now he’s a stranger to his family…and love won’t be enough to bring him back.

Only when Jenny asks him to move out does Adam become the husband she needs…but Adam isn’t the only one who’s changed. As their attraction sparks back to life, Jenny and Adam must learn what it is to grow up—and grow together—before this small-town breakup lasts forever.

This is the second book in the series that I have read.  Trust me when I say when I read James and Mara’s story (major swoon and OMG! THAT BOOK), I was intrigued by Jenny and Adam that I couldn’t wait for their story.  And boy was I surprised at the depth of their story.  I know, I shouldn’t be because it’s Ms. Knight writing but Jenny and Adam have had issues for most of their marriage and the tornado and Adam’s injury just made it even worse.

I love married couples in books.  Not every marriage is perfect.  Adam and Jenny’s is no exception.  I loved how Ms. Knight made both of them couplable in the whole mess.  I know, usually, that doesn’t happen but “it takes two” in a marriage and you have to work every day for that marriage.  My own marriage isn’t perfect, nor should it.  That would be boring as hell.

A couple of other things that really rang true for me are integrated their boys, Frankie and Garrett, both sets of parents and MAJOR SWOON Aiden, Adam’s twin.  Oh yes, there is another and he’s MINE.  Sorry ladies, but I digress.  Each family member is that crucial piece of the puzzle that Adam and Jenny need to come to grips with in dealing with their marriage.  The most important part of the book was that Adam and Jenny still loved each other.  Deeply, they just started to resent each other.  Ms. Knight does not gloss over Adam’s physical injuries.  That’s Adam’s biggest obstacle in the book.  Jenny’s is that she lost herself along the way and wasn’t happy about it.

I just adored this book and this series is fast becoming one of all time favorites.  The characters are vivid, emotional, funny, realistic and it’s always fun to go back and see where the other characters are in the town.  And I can’t wait for Aiden’s story; whenever that may be.  Again, I just loved how Ms. Knight made the story so realistic, emotional, at times raw and I truly felt sympathetic to both characters.  I was cheering for them to the very end.  And what an ending it was.  *sigh, swoon, sniffles*
