Sons pay for the sins of their fathers…


Bodhi and Easton Lancaster O’Donoghue have grown up sheltered from the truth. Until it’s time for their parents to reveal what happened and how it shaped the events that came later.


Bodhi is quiet. An intelligent, introspective boy who hides his pain deep inside. Shattered by the harsh reality of the past, he spirals into a dark place where no one can reach him.


Easton loves his brother fiercely and has always been there for him. Despite his own grief and confusion, he tries his best to support Bodhi—even if he seems determined to push everyone away.


Vivien and Dillon knew this moment would come. Yet nothing prepared them for the massive fall-out. As Bodhi retreats, and Easton struggles, they fight hard to keep their family together.


Before history repeats itself and they suffer more devastating loss.

Hold Me Close (All of Me, #3)Hold Me Close by Siobhan Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved Say I'm the One (All of Me #1) and Let Me Love You (All of Me #2) by Siobhan Davis. Hold Me Close (All of Me #3) was the perfect companion to this series. The painful reality of Bodhi and Easton's parents' choices leaves the boys feeling like collateral damage. I skimmed the first two books before I read HMC, and reading them made me want to experience this addictive series for the first time again. Hold Me Close packed an emotional punch. I hope Siobhan continues writing more books in this world.

His daughter, Everly.


And there’s something I’m keeping from him: I just applied for the job of my dreams.

Between Hello and Goodbye by Emma Scott Kindle book

Available now! 

She's a city girl in Seattle. He's a firefighter in a rainforest. This is never going to work...
 
Faith Benson isn't your emergency contact, she's the party-girl friend you call for a good time. The gal-pal who loves mimosas at brunch and martinis at Happy Hour. But her carefree lifestyle threatens her job at a top Seattle ad agency. There's no one better at landing big accounts (when she shows up) but her boss demands she take a leave of absence to get her head on straight.
 
Faith heads to the remote Hawaiian island of Kauai, far away from the vices that get her in trouble. A twisted ankle on Day One requires rescuing by a man who is vice personified--a gorgeous firefighter who awakens feelings in her heart she never knew existed.
 
Asher Mackey doesn't get involved with beautiful tourists beyond taking them to bed and then watching them leave his tiny island. He's devoted his life to the safety and care of everyone around him...except himself. Until he meets Faith Benson, the city girl whose vibrant, inner beauty shines a light on the dark corners of his life, showing him how safe—but empty—it truly is.
 
Despite their best efforts to keep their distance, Faith and Asher fall hard and fast, but there's an ocean between them. Both are building their lives on opposite sides of the Pacific while their feelings for each other grow more profound and undeniable by the day.
 
Something has to give.
 
When Asher receives devastating news, he and Faith have to decide once and for all to entrust their hearts fully to the other or return to their safe—but separate—worlds. Because neither can endure much longer, living somewhere between hello and goodbye.

Between Hello and Goodbye is a contemporary romance about love, loss, and experiencing life in all its facets. It deals with sensitive topics that may be triggering for some readers.

At least that’s what I’d hoped for when I decided to visit Hollywood’s most sought-after director, AKA my usually absentee father, for the summer. But my vision of an idyllic break before starting grownup life after college comes to a halt when my dad puts me to work on his set.

 

As an aspiring screenwriter, I’m eager for any experience, but my time is spent as the errand girl, fulfilling every whim of Hollywood’s IT actor, the flirtatious, too-sexy-for-his-own-good Liam Taylor. As the shiny new girl, Liam thinks he has to have me, but his bad-boy persona turns me off, and I don’t want to be another notch on his bedpost.

 

Then there’s Hudson Callihan, the hot up-and-coming director working with my dad. He’s everything I think I want in a guy. What starts out as a friendship becomes a secret relationship, and I fall hard.

 

Things become complicated with Hudson when I’m thrown into a fake relationship with Liam to soften his scandalous reputation. And living on set with both guys and the crew is becoming more and more difficult.

 

I came to LA expecting to have a good time, but what I didn’t expect was to be faced with making the biggest decision of my life.

It’s SUMMERTIME! Summertime by Willow Aster is the perfect beach read. This flirty and fun Hollywood romance was unputdownable. Summer visits her famous director dad and ends up working on his movie set. She meets two men who want to score a leading role in Summer’s life. Who is going to land the part her as her boyfriend? A smoking hot assistant director or a Hollywood heartthrob? That’s all I will say since I don’t want to give anything away! One-click worthy.

Ever Mine by Laura Pavlov Kindle Book

He's hockey's golden boy, my new client, and the man I've avoided for the last nine years. I was hired to fix him—but he's not the only one who's broken.

 Hawk Madden was my first love.

I thought he would be my forever.

But life wasn't always fair.

And grief could be a cruel beast.

Fight or flight?

I'd always run.

But now he's back in my life after all these years.

With one look.

One touch.

One kiss.

Old feelings resurface.

Feelings that I thought I'd buried a long time ago.

Hawk Madden was my first love...

I just didn't know that he'd be my last.

Camden

I’ve been in love with my best friend since high school.

My biggest regret? Walking away without telling her.

I planned to. But then catastrophe struck, making us part ways without a word.

She left for Boston with her fiancรฉ, while I left for L.A. with my band–Raging Chaos.

For the next five years, I lived and breathed music, trying to forget the beautiful girl who shattered my heart without even knowing it.

Until I see her again…

I walked away once, and I've learned my lesson.

Layla is my forever, not another item in my pile of regrets.

And she's about to find that out.


Layla

The moment I saw Camden on stage, something inside me came to life.

His tragic song of unrequited love was a confession that had me questioning everything.

Five years might’ve changed who we are—he’s a rock star and I’m a single mom—but my feelings for him are as strong as ever.

His lyrics make falling in love seem easy. For him—maybe it is.

Only I’ve learned the hard way that real life isn’t as simple as writing a love song.

Synopsis: 

Hidden Waters, an all-new moving and passionate roommates to lovers, small-town romance from bestselling author Catherine Cowles, is available now!


My family tried to break me. But, somehow, I made it out alive, even though the wounds from that survival are forever carved into my bones. Now, my only wish is for…normal. To know what it's like to have friends, a job, a home.


The last thing I want is for my new roommate to see the scars I'm so desperate to keep hidden, especially not the ruggedly handsome man who steals my breath and sends my heart into overdrive.


But something tells me that Beckett has demons, too. I see it in the shadows haunting his gorgeous eyes and the way he looks at me with gentle understanding.


As our unlikely friendship becomes so much more, forces from my life slink out of the shadows. And we could both lose everything we've fought so hard for—down to our very last breaths…

Spoiler-free Review of Hidden Waters

Hidden Waters (Tattered & Torn #3)Hidden Waters by Catherine Cowles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Hidden Waters by Catherine Cowles is the third book in The Tattered & Torn Series. This book focuses on Addie and Beckett. Addie escaped her father's violent extremist group and is working hard to assimilate and live a normal life in Wolf Gap. Addie meets Beckett, who becomes her new housemate. Beckett moved back to Wolf Gap to face his demons and renew family ties. The two help each other move on from their dark pasts to find a bright future.
This slow-burning, small-town romantic suspense was heartfelt and hard to put down. I'm looking forward to reading Shattered Sea (The Tattered & Torn Series #4) when it releases on September 13th. This emotion-packed series of interconnected standalones is not to be missed.

Book Review: Someone Else’s Shadow by Monica James

Someone Else’s Shadow by Monica James is LIVE!.  Check out my spoiler-free book review of this standalone romantic suspense thriller. 

Someone Else’s Shadow by Monica James Kindle Book
Synopsis:

My name is Peyton Lane, and I have no idea who I am.

Six months ago, I woke from a coma with no recollection of anybody, anything.

My family tells me that I’m a good woman, that I’m loved. It seems I’ve lived a full, rewarding life, but I would give all of it up in a heartbeat to remember who I was.

My mind is a blank slate. Every moment in time wiped clean.

But there is one thing I can remember, something I haven’t dared to tell anyone about—a mysterious oak tree, a red ribbon, and a vision of drowning.

I know the answers I seek lie buried at the bottom of a lake. And that’s why I’m here in South Carolina. The memory I have is something I witnessed…

So I wonder what it would feel like to remember…remember who I was, but more importantly, remember what I did.

New Book Review: Help Me Remember by Corinne Michaels

New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels brings you a new small-town, brother’s best friend romance. Check out my spoiler-free mini-book review of Help Me Remember. This is a standalone and the first book in the Rose Canyon series. 

Help Me Remember by Corinne Micheals Kindle Book

Synopsis:

In one second, my life disappeared.


My past. My memories. My future.


The only certainty I have from the last three years is that my older brother is dead, and I am the only eyewitness.


In order to protect the case, the lawyers demand that no one give me any information about my life . . . I must remember on my own. My only help comes from my brother’s best friend and world-renowned investigative reporter, Spencer Cross.


He has no idea how many nights I’ve spent dreaming of his name—and his body—next to mine.


Now we’re a team and our goal is to recover my memories and retrace my past. But each day we spend together, he’s looking at me as more than his friend’s little sister and I find it harder to want my old life back. Instead I’m wishing for a new one–with him. His kiss feels like home. His arms make me feel safe, and I never want this to end.


As my memories return, forcing me to face my future, everything falls apart... especially when I find an engagement ring hidden in my apartment. I have no idea who gave it to me, or what it means about my past.


I may have asked Spencer to help me remember, but now I wish I could forget.
