Sweet Entanglement | Jean C. Gordon

 


Today I am reviewing Sweet Entanglement, an Indigo Bay Sweet Romance by Jean C. Gordon.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Is three the charm?

Lauren Cooper is on her way to her life’s dream. She’s financed and finished college and law school all on her own. And she’s up for partner at the largest law firm in Indigo Bay.

There’s nothing to stop her from concentrating everything on achieving that goal. Until Jesse Brewster, the man who broke her heart twice, shows up sleeping off the night before on the beach, and she’s called in to serve as his public defender.

Looking to make a new start after the racing accident that ended his lucrative motocross career and sent him spiraling into darkness, the former champion had envisioned an entirely different scenario if he ever saw Lauren again.

That vision was more along the lines of the successful businessman he’d be once he rehabbed the seaside mansion he’s inherited from his uncle and sold it to open a custom bike shop.

Sparks fly between them, and Jesse vows to fan those sparks once he’s got the project successfully underway. But someone starts sabotaging it, putting Jesse behind on the deadline he has to meet to get the property off the Indigo Bay Planning Board’s condemned property list. And Lauren has a sick suspicion that her bosses are somehow involved.

Jesse and Lauren had once promised they’d wait for each other while they pursued their career dreams. Despite that broken promise, neither can deny the love that’s still between them. But now that they are on the cusp of reaching those dreams, are they willing to risk everything to renew that love?

Team Macachek: Fall in love with the strong women and fearless men of the motocross circuit.

This is the 12th novel in the Indigo Bay series, but all books can be read as standalones.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I had to laugh when I read how Jesse Brewster planned to impress Lauren Cooper if they ever met again. . . and nope, it wasn’t anywhere near what he had envisioned. On the contrary, he couldn’t have made a worse impression.

But the sparks are still flying and cannot be ignored. Will they go for their dreams? Or will they let love guide them? Read Sweet Entanglement to find out. . .

I. LOVE. this. story.

It has everything… laughter, tears, drama, hope, love. . . it’s a perfect ending to the Indigo Bay Sweet Romance series!

Don’t miss this sweet story of love and hope!

Happy Reading!

 

Blessings!

Mending Fences | Suzanne Woods Fisher

 

 

Today I am reviewing Mending Fences, the first book in The Deacon’s Family series, by Suzanne Woods Fisher.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Every saint has a past. Every sinner has a future.

Luke Schrock is a new and improved man after a stint in rehab, though everyone in Stoney Ridge only remembers the old Luke. They might have forgiven him, but nobody trusts him.

Amos and Fern Lapp allow Luke to live at Windmill Farm under two conditions. First, Luke must make a sincere apology to each person he’s hurt–a four-page, single-spaced list. Second, he must ask each victim of mischief to describe the damage he caused.

Simple, Luke thinks. Offering apologies is easy. But discovering the lasting effects his careless actions have caused . . . that isn’t so simple. It’s gut-wrenching.

And his list keeps growing. Izzy Miller, beautiful and frustratingly aloof, also boards at Windmill Farm. Luke’s clumsy efforts to befriend Izzy only insult and annoy her. Eager to impress, Luke sets out to prove himself to her by locating her mother. When he does, her identity sends shock waves through Stoney Ridge.

Bestselling and award-winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher returns to her beloved Stoney Ridge for this brand-new series featuring some of her readers’ favorite characters.

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Every saint has a past.  Every sinner has a future.

I absolutely LOVED reading about Luke Schrock. . . and how, after messing up his life with alcohol and more than his share of mistakes. Thankful for a chance to fix things, Luke returns home to Stoney Ridge — only to find out everyone isn’t eager to welcome him back.

One of his conditions of moving back is to offer his sincere apologies, which doesn’t come easily for him — especially when the people he wronged were more hurt by his actions than he would ever have expected. Gulp!

It seems like he may never get done. . . and this just may be his last chance to make things right!

If you’ve enjoyed reading stories by Suzanne Woods Fisher, I can almost guarantee that you’re gonna LOVE this series! I can’t wait for the next book in the series, which will be available later this year.

Happy Reading!

 

Blessings!

The Human Complication | JC Morrows, Macy Morrows

 

 


Today I am promoting The Human Complication, the 3rd chapter book in the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series, by JC Morrows and Macy Morrows.

In book one, Zoe discovered her somewhat unorthodox heritage.

As if being a teenager isn’t hard enough. . .

Can you imagine how it feels to wake up one day and find out that you are not who you thought you were?

If you’re anything like me, you know it’s hard enough trying to fit in—in high school—without having to deal with the knowledge that your dad is an alien part of the time. I don’t even get how you can be an alien part of the time. . .

Not to mention all of the crazy new alien gifts you really wish you could return.

Oh well, at least I have an explanation for the blue hair.

So, not only do I get to deal with school bullies this fall, who I’m apparently not allowed to use my new abilities on, I have to keep anyone from finding out my secret. . . and keep my grades up.

Could life get any crazier!

 

In book two, Zoe was left to deal with her new abilities… all by herself.

As if I don’t have enough to deal with. . .

It’s crazy enough to find out, the hard way, that you are not who you thought you were.

But to have that kind of bombshell dropped on you, and then — to have your Dad ditch you — leaving you to figure stuff out all by yourself, with a Mom you can’t tell anything about what’s going on. . . and school enemies lurking around unexpected corners.

I mean. . . come on. It’s summer!

Between trying to keep a tight grip on my sanity, not to mention my new crazy alien powers, dealing with Ashley and her band of terrible teens, not knowing if I still have a best friend or not is just the straw I do not need to be saddled with this summer.

Is it any wonder I feel like I just might lose it any second! And if I do. . . well, keeping the secret from Mom will be the least of my problems!

 

DON’T MISS BOOK THREE!

 

 

 

God Bless You!

The Hybrid Challenge | JC Morrows, Macy Morrows

 

 


Today I am reviewing The Hybrid Challenge, the 2nd chapter book in the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series, by JC Morrows and Macy Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

As if I don’t have enough to deal with. . .

It’s crazy enough to find out, the hard way, that you are not who you thought you were.

But to have that kind of bombshell dropped on you, and then — to have your Dad ditch you — leaving you to figure stuff out all by yourself, with a Mom you can’t tell anything about what’s going on. . . and school enemies lurking around unexpected corners.

I mean. . . come on. It’s summer!

Is it any wonder I feel like I just might lose it any second! And if I do. . . well, keeping the secret from Mom will be the least of my problems!

Book two of the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Zoe is a really cool teenager… the only thing is, she has blue hair… and just after her dad takes her on a vacation and reveals a big secret, he disappears and she’s left to figure things out on her own!

          And she can’t tell her mom!

So what happens when Zoe returns home to deal with her new life-altering secret? Especially when her best friend shows up, wanting to know what happened before Zoe left — you know, when the bedroom door kept opening and closing on its’ own.

This is such an adorable story… about a teenage-girl who gets the most surprising news — something extraordinary, and more than a bit alarming!

In this second book, Zoe’s dad has ended their vacation early and taken off for parts unknown, leaving Zoe to deal with family and friends, and new neighbors. I loved how the authors tap into what it would be like to learn that you’re half alien, plus dealing with new powers that could cause all sorts of problems. Can Zoe handle things on her own? Will her alien dad ever return?

If you are as curious as I am — pre-order your copy today so you can read the story as soon as it releases. Once you do, you’ll want to know even more (like I do) and you’ll be anticipating the return of Zoe (and her two dads) in The Human Complication, the next sequel in this fun, exciting series.

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!

The Alien’s Daughter | JC Morrows, Macy Morrows

 

  


Today I am reviewing The Alien’s Daughter, the 1st chapter book in the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series, by JC Morrows and Macy Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

As if being a teenager isn’t hard enough. . .

Can you imagine how it feels to wake up one day and find out that you are not who you thought you were?

If you’re anything like me, you know it’s hard enough trying to fit in—in high school—without having to deal with the knowledge that your dad is an alien part of the time. I don’t even get how you can be an alien part of the time. . .

Could life get any crazier!

Book one of the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Zoe is a really cool character… with blue hair — and a few new strange powers that have just shown up!

And she has two dads!

Well… not really. But her dad has two very different personalities, so much so that she calls one of them Nice Dad and the other one Not-so-nice Dad.  Personally, I wish Not-so-nice Dad would take a hike!  Unfortunately, if he does, Nice Dad won’t stay around, either. Even if she wants him to…

How does Zoe learn to control her powers? What happens with her dad? Read the story and find out, like I did… and once you do, you’ll want to know more (like I do) and you’ll be anticipating the return of Zoe (and her dads) in The Hybrid Challenge.

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!
