I have to say that this little novella from the Beaumont gang couldn’t be more perfect! We get to see a whole new side of Xander that we haven’t seen before. When Harrison sister Yvie has had enough of her boyfriend Oliver she high tales it directly to Beaumont for the Holidays.
Needing to unwind and spend some time with the people that love her the most, Yvie, finds a whole new member of the crew to spend her time with! Some seriously HOT, SEXY TIME!!!! YIKES! You will never look at a weight bench the same again! This little addition to the Beaumont series will surprise you and warm your heart for the holiday season!
Heidi’s characters are loveable and it certainly made me want to spend the holidays with them all! I really thought nobody could ever top Harrison, but Xander sure gives him a run for the money in this novella! He’s just as passionate about his love life as he is about his job… Sigh… Can’t wait to see what more is to come with the gang from Beaumont!!!
Seattle shakes with anticipation: they call it the concert of the year. They say girls are getting pregnant just thinking about my band being in town.
But when you love a girl, you don’t leave her with nothing but a ring and a promise. Any man with half a brain should know.
So what did I expect my girl would do when she saw me again?
Well, for starters, she loathes our music. Particularly the song I wrote about her.
When I sing it, the stadium is in an uproar. Thousands of fans scream my name like I’m a god–but yeah, not her. Crystal clear: the girl’s not happy to see me.
Black hair, black boots, a bad attitude, that’s her — Pandora Stone is a freaking man-eater and she’s out for my blood.

Love is selfish…
My name is Blaire.
I’m the bad girl.
The other woman.
The one who never gets the guy in the end.
I’m the gold digger.
The one no one roots for.
The one you love to hate.
I hate myself too…
Everyone has a story. Are you ready for mine?
Copyright © 2013 by Mia Asher
Mia has done it again! Leaving me speechless and asking WTH just happened? Days later I’m still trying to figure out what will happen next!
Blaire- Beautiful, greedy, selfish Blaire will leave you wanting to reach into your kindles and slap her silly! I had a love/hate relationship with her at first until OMG the ending! I wanted to high five her in the face with a chair! <—–too much?!
Blaire blames her childhood for her actions for the way she is but I call BS because under all that makeup and greed Blaire shows she’s does have a tiny heart in there somewhere. She doesn’t love, or let people in. She’s ok with feeling nothing as long as she gets money in return until………….
In walks Ronan! Mercy sakes I was swooned in the first few minutes of reading about this man. Ronan brings out the good in Blaire and you see him bring down those walls she put up long ago. Ronan is everything you could want in BB! He’s smart, hot, funny, the sweetest man,caring and did I mention he swooned my panties clean off? <— yep gone!
Just as Ronan tears down a wall Blaire decides he’s getting too close. Love isn’t something she does. Money and power trump everything in her world and Ronan doesn’t have enough of that for Blaire’s standards. He made her feel something, and it scares the hell out of her. The steam between these two is undeniable, but is love ever really enough? Just when you think so we meet Lawrence.
Law is everything Blaire is looking for as far as money is concerned. She wants his world and doesn’t care who she hurts to get it, even if it means hurting those that truly care about her. Lawrence has it all, and Blaire will use her beauty and seductive ways to get exactly what she wants, or will it be enough? Will money and power really win over love? I can’t say because there is a book two!! I can’t wait!!!
This book will leave you speechless! You will curse Mia, and possibly need a straight jacket trying to figure out wth just happened? That ending though!! Gah!! I’m still reeling here!!
Grab this book and you will see exactly why! I’m anxiously stalking Mia for book two as I type this! LOL!!!
Owen Walker spends every day in a new place with a new case. As one of the most renowned assassins in the world, he has his choice of marks—and he’s never failed in a mission. When a new hit takes him back to his hometown, he looks forward to spending time somewhere familiar. What he isn’t expecting is to help an attractive, confused American woman find out how she’s ended up on a hit man’s list.
As Ava and Owen dodge bullets, will they be able to escape their undeniable attraction to each other? Or will all of that chemistry blow up in a shower of hot and dangerous sparks?
J: If you were stranded on an island and could only have one book with you what book would it be and why?
I can sum up this book in one word. UNIQUE! This book has so many things that I’ve never seen before in a book and it is surely what sets it apart from the rest of the pack. Nichole has written a story that will be sticking with you long after you’ve finished….
I absolutely loved Ava, she wasn’t some weak minded heroine, she was strong and assertive and even when staring down the barrel of a gun and scared out of her mind, she’s able to think and make her own demands from Owen. Owen is just… sigh… I loved him from the minute he stepped into the book. Yes he’s a cold blooded killer, but he has his reasons and well… I find them to be justifiable! And so does Ava! This is one unlikely pairing of characters, but you will find yourself falling in love with them and cheering them on!
Nichole has created an intricate story that weaves us through some of the darker ways of the world, all while bringing a lighthearted feeling. My heart was pounding from beginning to end with this one. I never could be sure what was going to happen next with these two. And just when you think you’ve got it all figured out at the end… You find out it’s really just scratching the surface! I give Nichole 5 stars for creating a book that has such uniqueness to it, creating characters that you fall in love with and a story that you don’t want to put down or have end! This one is a must read on my list!
Nichole lives in Georgia with her husband, energetic daughter, superhero dog, Sulcata tortoise, and two cats. When not writing, you may find her reading, painting, crafting, or chasing her daughter around the house while making monster noises.
THE ACCIDENTAL ASSASSINGoodreadshttps://www.
After one week in New York, Anna can’t seem to get Ethan out of her thoughts. Her best friend Leah keeps trying to set her up on dates but she keeps using work as an excuse. Since returning from New York, all she does is work long hours. Not only to keep her mind off of Ethan but there’s also rumors that the company is going under. So when the big wigs from Flanders, Case & Burling show up and call for a meeting with everyone, Anna just knows she’s about to lose her job. She never expected to see Ethan standing at the front of the room announcing the merger of both companies.
The last thing Ethan expected to see when he looked around the room was Anna staring right back at him. Sure he’d been thinking nonstop about her since she left New York but it had gotten worse since he landed in London. Now here she was right in front of him working for Allen & Smith, the company his company just took over. He knows he needs to see her. He will only be in London for three months. But Anna keeps trying to blow him off. Can he convince her to continue their fling? And is this really a fling?
Once again I am stuck thinking “I can’t wait for the next book!!” These books are short but sweet and I Love them!! I Love Ethan and Anna. They are so perfect together and their story is so straight and to the point. To quote them “No Bullshit”. Again the fact that they are short makes it harder for me to tell you what I Love about these stories without giving too much away. I hate spoilers! Another 4 Stars for Louise Bay for Autumn in London!
That was before he met Beth Lowry.
It was only supposed to be a summer fling. She was a sixteen-year-old trailer-park girl who served drinks to his friends at Kerrington Country Club. They didn’t run in the same social circles. No one even knew they were friends, let alone lovers. Yet, for one summer, Bethy became his entire world.
But he couldn’t give up on his plan. He needed to leave Rosemary Beach, but he vowed he would come back for her.
Problem was, by the time he came back—years later than promised—it was too late. His cousin, Jace, had already claimed the woman he loved. . . .
If you are an Abbi Glines fan you know that this book was a much anticipated read after hearing that Bethy and Tripp had a past. We never really had the details about their relationship in the past until now…
Bethy and Tripp’s story will knock you to your knees with sadness and heartbreak… The many years of guilt and sadness over what Bethy had done years ago ate at her, it affected her relationship with the man she was in love with, the man who changed her from being a bit of a slut into a woman she could be proud of…. That all fell apart the night she feels she caused that love to end… It was all Tripps fault.
His return to Rosemary Beach threw Bethy into a tailspin of emotion and past regrets. She started to question everything and she hated herself and him for it. Her push and pull struggle to deal with the events of the past and having them collide with the the present was not something Bethy ever thought she’d have to deal with. At times I felt like this book could never possibly have a happy ending. But Abbi never fails to bring about the happiness in the end. Once the secrets are revealed Bethy has a new outlook on the past and the future, and she’s brought back to life again.This turning point will have you cheering for Bethy to find happiness again.
This book has all the elements you need in a good read. If you love Abbi Glines books you will love Bethy and Tripp’s story just be prepared with tissues cause reliving the past will cause some tears… I love how Abbi always intertwines my favorite characters from the past books. You will see Rush, Woods, Della, Blaire, Grant, Harlow and all your favorites from this series pop up as they all continue to grow together through each book, the friendships they have built, that will never end… I’ll be sad to see this series come to a close when it’s time…. I give this one 4 stars. To me the ending was a bit rushed but overall another fantastic addition to the Rosemary Beach series! This continues to be my favorite series by Abbi Glines!
About the Author
Book Title: What’s Left of Us Author: Amanda Maxlyn The heartwarming conclusion to What’s Left of Me. Love found me three years ago. I’m cancer free, happily married to the love of my life, and working toward my dream career. Our life is complete. Perfect, really. Or is it? I’ve always wanted a family of my own, but never dreamed I could have one. Now Parker’s ready to make my dream our reality. But sometimes our dreams are haunted by our deepest fears. Fears of failure, having a child, and in our case … death. How do I help the person I love get over his fear when I’m still trying to overcome that same fear myself? Together we must learn What’s Left of Us.
What’s left of Us continues the story of Aundrea and Parker and their happily ever after. She has overcome cancer and this story picks up 3 years later into their marriage.
Let me start of by saying I LOVED What’s left of Me. It was my very first FIVE star of 2014. I cried so hard.. I worried SO much about her wigs falling off and Parker finding out about her cancer. I just LOVED how honest and raw it was. How REAL it felt.
I was curious where this story would lead. What would happen.. I feared that Aundrea’s cancer would reoccur and the angst of that kept me on edge. The soul crushing angst from book one does not linger into book 2.. I don’t know how I feel about that quite yet. I craved that same felling yet I was thankful she was in remission. I’m very conflicted on my rating on this story. I LOVE Parker. I LOVE what this story was about (no spoilers but I love where it was leading) but I found myself needing that gut wrenching plot that Maxlyn gave me with WLoM. She spoiled me I guess.
The writing I would rate 5 star, the story line just fell a little flat compared to book one so I’m rating this one a 4 star.. I enjoyed it but I didn’t LOVE it like I did the first.
I will say Amanda Maxlyn can WRITE. Her words flow so eloquently that I sometimes catch myself reading the same sentence again, just to say it out loud:) Another beautifully written story!

Life works in mysterious ways.Four years ago I became known as the girl with cancer. I refuse to cry. And I refuse to give in. A relationship with a man is the last thing I’m looking for right now, but one night with Parker changes everything. He is persistent, and he knows what he wants. Me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m fragile. But he doesn’t know, and I’m not ready to tell him. What if it changes everything? Tragedy found me when I was seventeen. Love found me when I was twenty-one. My name is Aundrea McCall, and this is my journey.
In a life driven by passion, famed artist Maxfield Caswell lives in a world of brilliant color and drama, pushing his art and affairs to his emotional edge. He’s stunning, charismatic and celebrated in the art world, but are the trappings of fame also destroying him?
For years intelligent and bright-eyed Ava Jacobs has worked diligently toward a career in the art world. Ava is swept off her feet when she meets the passionate artist. She soon realizes, however, that he’s on a destructive path—one she doesn’t intend to join him on.
In the decadent world of patrons, art groupies, and predators, feisty and beautiful Ava knocks Max off his pedestal. A stunned Max sees something special in Ava and offers her an opportunity she can’t refuse. As their lives and passions collide, will he realize that she alone has the power to heal him? Can their hearts come together to create their own work of art?
Max is an artist, a painter, and a HOT MESS! He’s moody and cocky, he really knows that his work is the cream of the crop, but along with that come fortune and fame and that’s where he has a difficult time dealing. When he’s with his bevy of art groupies he is a real turn off of epic proportions, but when he’s sincere and caring and showing the emotional side of him very few get to see… Well that side makes you fall in love! His biggest demon is himself. There were moments so emotional in this book that I broke down for Max and wanted to truly give him a big hug.
Ava is a dream, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE HER! She is strong and she doesn’t take Max’s crap, she just gives it right back to him. Unfortunately as she works through the layers of Max she finds more then she’s bargained for. But even then she remains true to character and doesn’t let him walk all over her… This is going to be an emotional ride for Ava and she knows she has to be strong for Max to endure the rocky road ahead.
I can’t wait to see where this goes in BOOK 2! I can only imagine after the tumultuous ending we aren’t in for a smooth ride anytime soon!
