One Last Kiss by Cynthia Cooke

The group of men who joined the Eternal Bachelors Club had thought they would not get married anytime soon, but some of them have decided there is only one particular woman that they want in their life. Four members remain whose futures have not yet been controlled by their hearts, and Hunter Hamilton is especially adamant about staying unwed. But when he gets an opportunity to reconnect with the woman whom he should never have let escape, seductive plans just might keep Ashleigh Welsley from getting away a second time. Cynthia Cooke has written a very entertaining romance, where long-held secrets could either make a relationship last or end up tearing it apart forever. I absolutely enjoyed every moment of the story, because every scene is so believable that I felt the happenings just had to be true. ONE LAST KISS is emotionally affecting from beginning to end.

Although Hunter Hamilton belongs to the Eternal Bachelors Club, he does date but just has no intention of getting married. There was one woman in his past whom he would have wed, but his choices made certain their relationship did not last. Ashleigh Welsley has been out of his life for fourteen years, so there is no use wishing for what can never come true.

If her father had not become very ill, Ashleigh would have stayed in California instead of coming back to Southampton, NY. Shortly after the well-known actress arrives, she encounters Hunter at a local bar. While both are much different people now than they were long ago, the feelings they once shared have never fully died and keeping them from resurfacing will be very hard.

Even if the previous books in Tina Folsom’s Eternal Bachelors Club series were never read, plenty of details about characters and situations give enough information so everything is understood. I always like when linked stories feature some of the same individuals, as it is great catching up on their lives. Hunter made an exceedingly difficult choice in his past, and it still haunts him. Though he is successful and wealthy, he is not really happy because of how much he regrets losing Ashleigh. While they are no longer involved, he has not truly moved on. Since she thinks he betrayed her, it has caused her problems when it comes to trusting others. When the couple find themselves together again, old hurts are there but so is intense desire. The passion Hunter and Ashleigh feel for one another is frequently sky-high, and they definitely have no trouble expressing any of their lusty cravings. I often felt as though I was experiencing their steamy moments right along with them.

While sexual attraction may keep increasing and various emotions are conveyed by Ashleigh and Hunter, several concealed facts could make a huge difference in what ultimately occurs. There were times when I was very worried over how these two would react to a new disclosure, and genuine responses were demonstrated every time. Cynthia Cooke made every single moment in ONE LAST KISS enthralling, as characters are true-to-life while events are convincingly imaginative.

Breaching the Contract by Chantal Fernando

The Conflict of Interest series begins with a novella which introduces interesting characters who work at a law firm. There are winning attorneys, a capable intern, one take-charge secretary, and the new associate. Katerina Dawson is all set to prove she can be a worthy asset to the firm, but getting the chance to show off her skills will be difficult when she must be out of the office and is not working on actual cases. Then lines are crossed and feelings become involved, and a lawyer plus the new employee will have to make some tough choices when it comes to their futures. I quickly became connected to the many appealing characters in the story, as BREACHING THE CONTRACT is delightfully enjoyable because of captivating developments. Chantal Fernando creates emotional dilemmas for her very likable characters to face, where lasting happiness could be won or lost with one wrong decision.

Since Katerina Dawson only recently got her degree, she was shocked to have been picked as an associate for a prestigious criminal law firm. At first, it seems there will be challenges that will showcase whether she can be a competent lawyer one day. Kat likes working with Jaxon Bentley, and is glad the other partner, Tristan Channing, is not the one over her. All goes well until her boss has to take some time off, which will have her working with the lawyer who is very reserved.

Now Kat is doing various tasks that have nothing to do with the office, and she is starting to feel more like a personal assistant. She does not realize Tristan is secretly attracted to her, and there is even a little desire for him felt by her, too. But neither plans on anything ever happening because of work ethics.

BREACHING THE CONTRACT sets the stage for more compelling situations featuring lawyers and those with whom they interact. Cases are researched and hopefully will have good outcomes. Then there are moments where unspoken wishes are finally declared, and heartfelt emotions are conveyed with much candor. Kat is a very outgoing woman, and I really became caught up in how her new career and possible relationship would turn out. She wants others to comprehend her capabilities, and gives it her all regardless of what job she must perform. Tristan is a little aloof when first met, but insight into his life let me understand this complex man more fully. With the book’s shorter length, the relationship of Tristan and Kat moves along rather quickly, but I still got the sense of genuine feelings between them. There are also some steamy sex scenes where only dreamed about fantasies come true. I thought the story was entertaining, and I am definitely eager for the next book in the series.

Dirty Boxing by Tara Wyatt and Harper St. George

There are a wide range of emotions expressed in the first Blood and Glory story, and each one is backed by much intensity. Whether a character is feeling joy or anger or very lusty, sentiments come across as genuine and convincing. With so many hurdles for the two main characters to overcome, I never knew if a situation would cause the couple to be happy or only push them further apart. Harper St. George and Tara Wyatt have created a series where love could be the most rewarding prize of all. DIRTY BOXING is an entertaining book packed with realistic sports details and a compelling romance.

When Julian Darcy became the director of marketing for the World Fighting Championship league, she hoped this career change meant her life was moving forward. A year ago, she had a brief affair with a MMA fighter. Jules now wants to put the painful memories of how things ended behind her, and she plans to concentrate on creating a successful campaign for the sports organization owned by her father. Bur her wishes are shattered upon discovering she will be working closely with the man whom she has never forgotten.

Though Nick Giannakis had thought he and Jules might have a lasting relationship, she apparently did not because of how he was unexpected dumped. While he would really like to show her that he no longer cares, she still deeply affects him whenever they are near each other. Jules does her best to promote Nick and help the WFC league, and also tries to pretend there was nothing special between them. But it is going to be extremely difficult to ignore the attraction which is even stronger this time.

DIRTY BOXING is an emotional love story about self-discovery. Nick and Jules had a memorable few weeks together, but fears about continuing their involvement cause her to suddenly end things. A complicated childhood makes her think there will be no long-lasting relationships in her future, yet seeing her former lover again makes it hard to stay away when she knows how good her life could be if she gives in to the temptation. And Nick is definitely a very enticing man. Though a tough fighter in the cage, he is exceedingly thoughtful and knows exactly the right words to say. He is also an exceptionally sexy individual who knows how to please a woman. There were times when I hurt for him, as his painful confusion is so clear. I did understand the reasoning behind many of the choices made by Jules, and it only added to my worry over how each would react during an impassioned discussion.

While the second chance romance between Nick and Jules is the major part of the storyline, there are also some enlightening facts about MMA fighting. The authors gave enough information to make me more interested in this sport, as I got background about how the fighters train and the excitement of trying to be a champion. Both characters in the next book were met, and I am eager to discover the ups and downs of their possible relationship.

Secret Child by Ann Major

There are lots of dramatic scenes in SECRET CHILD, and each one is packed with emotion. From situations where honest feelings are displayed to moments filled with uncontrollable reactions, the story constantly shows how two people react to the same event. A romantic couple who think happiness will never be in their lives again has been imaginatively created by Ann Major. What they have to face is often moving, and any decision could drastically alter what happens to them. The many unknowns in the book kept me reading to discover what would ultimately be disclosed, and there are several shocking surprises as the story progressed. I was stunned more than once, as Ann Major has written a compelling romance where secrets cause much chaos.

Since the past life of Bronte Devlin as well as her present one has been filled with heartache, she feels there will be little joy in her future. Yet when she is hit by a car and her face is severely injured, she wants to live and consents to a doctor’s strange proposal. The offer leads to her taking on the identity of a Texas woman who has much to hide. With the other woman being married, Bronte is eventually confronted by Jack West as he thinks she is his wife.

After way too many years locked up in prison for an offence that was not committed by him, Jack is finally once again free. But his time in jail has hardened him, and he blames his wife for her part in letting him be accused. When the two met, Jack notices the behavior of Bronte is much different from what he remembers, so questions keep mounting up.

The author certainly does not make it easy for Jack and Bronte, as they have one heated confrontation after another. Both feel they are very alone in the world, and sometimes this belief has them reacting with anger because of their hurtful pasts. It also has them craving kindness from another person, and this causes some impulsive choices. Lots of insight into the reasons for their current way of thinking let me come to understand this couple much better, and though I did not always agree with their actions, I could empathize with them. Plenty of uncertainties add confusion to the lives of Jack and Bronte, and I really felt for them and all they had to experience. SECRET CHILD is the eighth book in the thrilling Texas: Children of Destiny series, and the intriguing details kept me captivated.

Play Me by J.H. Croix

The Brit Boys Sports series is about four British men who now play soccer in the United States, and three of them have unexpectedly found love. Tristan Wells enjoys talking with women and he definitely has a rewarding sex life, but he has no desire to be in a lasting relationship. Any sexual encounters bring him pleasure, and he makes certain his partner is also satisfied but there is never any emotional connection. But the one time he kissed Daisy Knight has never been forgotten, and Tristan thinks they could have a very gratifying time together if he can just get her to agree. How the lives of this couple are changed following one conversation is expertly handled by J.H. Croix, where feelings and pleasurable fulfillment become entangled. I have adored Tristan since he was first met, and Daisy’s outspoken conduct has caused lots of smiles. Their own story is one I have been greatly anticipating, and PLAY ME never disappoints.

Even though Tristan Wells is a professional soccer player for the Seattle Stars, he still made time to get a medical degree. When he hurt his knee and had to quit playing for a season, he took over the task of managing a clinic which does research. A new study is ready to start, and Tristan is delighted upon realizing Daisy Knight will be working with him. The two met because of shared friends, and he definitely remembers their long-ago heated kisses.

While Daisy appears to ignore the strong attraction between them, Tristan wants to discover if her feelings are the same as his. During a conversation, he learns she wishes for two things in the future, and he is more than willing to be the first man who helps her attain an orgasm. But the idea of being in a committed relationship is certainly not for Tristan, or at least it was not until more time is spent with Daisy.

There is something about a man who does not show much emotion that makes me wants to see him lose control, and I got my wish multiple times in PLAY ME. Whenever Tristan is around Daisy, his normal mindset is overruled by lust, and I so enjoyed watching how he could not think clearly when around her. Both are intelligent people, but they could certainly become rattled when near each other. There is a wide range of emotions expressed in the story, and the intensity of every sentiment let me also experience the moment along with the characters. Whether Tristan and Daisy are blissfully happy or feeling confused and even upset, I was able to sense their inner thoughts and hopes. Since he has something to prove to her, sex between them is off-the-charts scorching all throughout PLAY ME.

It was also wonderful to catch up with all the past couples in the series, and any time these individuals got into discussions with Tristan or Daisy, their comments could be hilarious or very insightful. I have been thoroughly entertained by all the situations that have been compellingly brought to life by J.H. Croix in the Brit Boys Sports series, and I loved how everything played out in the fourth book.

Changing the Play by Julia Blake

Professional athletes can bring in the big bucks, and they want someone who is very clever to help their careers advance. Rachel Pollard has been interested in sports since she was young, and becoming a manager for up-and-coming players is rewarding when she gets them a profitable deal. Though he had wanted to actually play a sport and not report on the action, Nick Ruben is happy with how his life has turned out working on TV. But when the paths of these two crosses after having not been in contact for years, the situation immediately becomes heated when none of their wishes are the same. The first book in the Game Changer series is about a sports agent repeatedly squaring off against a television reporter who is just as determined as she to get his objective accomplished. Julia Blake brings much realism to CHANGING THE PLAY because reactions are so candidly honest. I definitely felt the issues this couple faced could really happen, as the predicaments seemed so believable.

As the agent for numerous individuals who play professional sports, Rachel Pollard has a reputation for making certain the best interest of her clients is met as long as they follow her rules. When a reporter for a local NYC television station calls, she wonders about his reason. She remembers Nick Ruben from high school, and though she secretly liked him then, he will get no special treatment from her now because protecting her athletes is a priority.

When Rachel hears that Nick wants an interview with Kevin Loder, she firmly refuses. The NFL hopeful is a young man whose attention needs to stay on getting picked in the upcoming draft, and she is not letting anyone break his concentration. But Nick needs to do this interview, as it is imperative to his career. Yet he also soon wants Rachel to realize they could be good together if she will just give them a chance.

Since Rachel and Nick express their feelings during any challenging dilemma with such heartfelt sentiments, I quickly became caught up in their complicated relationship. Both are very confident when it comes to fulfilling their professional responsibilities, but they feel doubts when exploring the gradual change in how each think about the other. Though they did go to school together, their current awareness is that of an adult so their perception is much different. I liked how their feelings still need a big push because their way of thinking is usually poles apart, so it often takes some newly revealed insight to change their minds. Julia Blake knows when to make things easy for Rachel and Nick, but she also can throw in a struggle when least unexpected to increase the tension.

CHANGING THE PLAY is a fascinating entanglement of romance and sports. Much research must have been done by Julia Blake, as I felt as though any of the circumstances related to sports came across as very conceivable. Whether it had to do with being an agent or a reporter, her characters seemed to know exactly what needed to be done. Conflicts between these two professions could be numerous, and I thought each one imagined by the author was shrewdly written.

Irresistible You by Kate Meader

With its compelling sports theme and engaging romance, the first book in the Chicago Rebels series is off to a fabulous start. While hockey does play a very important part in the story, many additional topics become the focus from time to time. From family drama to secret desires to commitment, the book explores these issues with much depth. Kate Meader has the ability to make me a believer when it comes to each situation created, as characters are convincing while events are always true-to-life. Every development in IRRESISTIBLE YOU is realistic, heartfelt, and profoundly affecting.

Although Harper Chase had been the vice president of the Chicago Rebels, her father had always made any decisions related to the professional hockey team. But when her parent recently passed away, she took over the general manager duties while trying to work with her two sisters as stated in the will. Unfortunately, the team seldom wins, which makes it in desperate need of an overhauling. Harper has already implemented one big change by acquiring a player from another team. Yet the man appears to have no intention of abiding by all of her rules.

When Remy “Jinx” DuPre heard he had been traded, the long-time player was upset as he thought his current team might win the Stanley Cup this year, and he really wants a championship before he retires. Assisting Harper in making the Rebels a better team is certainly not how he wants to finish his career. When Remy makes his demands known to his new boss, she has some requirements of her own, and being in full agreement could possibly change both of their futures.

From the very beginning of IRRESISTIBLE YOU, I was totally captivated by the clever circumstances imagined by Kate Meader. Having three women manage a hockey team is definitely not the norm in this league, and the hidden demands of their father’s will double the pressure these sisters must face. Harper is the oldest and is trying to prove she is just as capable as a man in leading a pro team to victory. I really felt for her, as her troubled past is exposed in numerous ways. There were occasions when I cheered her on, and then other instances where I was moved because her feelings are laid bare. The sexual tension between Harper and Remy is intense from their first meeting, and it gradually becomes sky-high after further interaction. This is one time I can honestly say their yearning for each another was also experienced by me because details associated with their lusty cravings are vividly portrayed. How this couple expresses their emotions is always genuine, and I really enjoyed seeing this strong man come across as so compassionate. Remy is truly an ideal hero, as he is understanding, can carry on a thoughtful conversation, yet is extremely sensual and even intelligently witty.

The consequences of a hockey team player becoming romantically entangled with his female boss are expertly handled by Kate Meader, and my anxiety kept increasing over what Harper and Remy would ultimately end up doing. So many scenarios could take place, and I never knew how any situation would turn out. There are several hints about the following story in the series, and I am very eager to discover what happens.

The Lady of Royale Street by Thea de Salle

The NOLA Nights series has been packed with sultry sexual encounters and lots of profound emotions. In the third release, part of the spotlight is on the imminent marriage of Sol and Arianna from the first story, but the main focus is on Alex DuMont and Theresa Ivarson, two individuals who would seem to have nothing in common except for their connection to the bride and groom. Being forced to work together to pull off the grand wedding lets the couple understand what the other is really like, and what they discover makes them want to know more. I laughed, then sighed, and then laughed some more. But I will also recall the extremely heartfelt emotions conveyed by Alex and Theresa because every sentiment was so genuine. Thea de Salle draws you into each developing situation with attention-grabbing details, and there is no way not to remain hooked until the final word is read. THE LADY OF ROYALE STREET has honest reactions, particularly likable characters, and very original happenings.

Although Alex DuMont loves his brother Sol, he was not thrilled to be chosen as his best man. His sibling is marrying a woman whose life is constantly followed by reporters, and when their disloyal wedding planner is killed in an accident, getting ready for the event has become doubly hectic. In order to help make certain everything goes without additional problems, the hotel manager of another family property has traveled from Dallas to New Orleans. Now Alex is going to do what he does best by bringing some control to a chaotic situation.

Upon arriving at the hotel where she will be staying, the expensive camera used by photojournalist Theresa Ivarson is broken by a man at the front desk. Learning she will have to work closely with this person because he is the groom’s best man does not set well, but she is determined to do her part as the maid of honor for her good friend, Arianna. As she and Alex try to salvage what they can of the original wedding plans, they realize their vastly different personalities might not be so incompatible after all.

Realism is never lacking in THE LADY OF ROYALE STREET. If a scene contains some lively sexual adventures, then every moment is conceivable. When only discussions are taking place and truthful words are spoken, I eagerly awaited the next response. While many of the activities portrayed in the story can be rather outrageous, I could see them happening because the behavior of several characters is unique. Alex likes order in his life and has followed the same routine for years. But being around Theresa has him concentrating more on them as a couple than sticking to his strict routine. Both are religious, and any aspects linked to their beliefs had me coming to know them even better. I never felt as though them discussing their faith took anything away from the story, as religion can be a very important part of a relationship, especially when two people are thinking of making it last more than a few days. As they explore the strong feelings between them, sex becomes steamier while conversations turn candidly sincere. I came to truly adore this couple.

Since a wedding is being celebrated, numerous engaging characters created by Thea de Salle make an appearance, and I thoroughly enjoyed many of their antics and witty words. I really hope more of the individuals in the series get their own books, as I am not ready to stop reading about them.

All or Nothing at All by Jennifer Probst

There is not a single moment in ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL where I was not totally held spellbound by the circumstances taking place. Jennifer Probst had me truly feeling the emotions connected to every new development, and how strongly I was affected by these events often left me breathless. From gut-wrenching anguish to satisfying sex to unpredicted enjoyment, I was caught up in whatever was happening in the lives of Tristan Pierce and Sydney Greene. Though the couple has been met in prior books, their inner dreams and haunting past mistakes were never fully revealed until their own story told me what lead to their current behavior. The path each decides to take in ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL is a journey filled with self-discovery and unexpected feelings.

After his mother was killed in an accident, Tristan Pierce feels like there is nothing left for him in his hometown. He and his father never agree on anything, and there is no way he will work for the family construction business, Pierce Brothers. Though he has a girlfriend, he cannot stay just for her and they break up right before he goes to New York City in order to carry out his aspirations While many of his goals are reached, there are times when he does think about having left Sydney Greene behind.

When his father dies years later, a stipulation in the will requires Tristan to work with his brothers or the business will be lost. Though he would rather not, he does leave his successful career as a realtor and comes back home. His time at the company’s office is often frustrating because Sydney works in the office, and her new proposal will have them being in close contact on a daily basis. Both are determined to put their full focus on their shared project, but past memories are hard to not recall.

While there are always lots of emotional situations in a story by Jennifer Probst, the feelings expressed all though ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL are some of the most profound I have ever read. I was deeply touched when Sydney made her thoughts known to Tristan during any disagreement, and his reactions to a long-hidden secret had my heart racing as I waited to see how everything would play out. Ms. Probst had built up my trepidation over what this couple would do when the truth came out, and I was not disappointed by their honest responses. Though there are some painful moments in the story, there are plenty of heartwarming instances, too. The candid discussions between Tristan and his brothers could be packed with hilarious comments or earnest sincerity, and the scenes where Sydney’s daughter is featured had me smiling at her delightful actions. When Tristan and Sydney are engaging in sexual intimacy, their enthusiasm caused these encounters to be off-the-charts steamy.

All the very appealing characters in the Billionaire Builders series whom I have come to adore were in the final book, and I also got to see any new happenings in their lives. Cal and Morgan plus Dalton and Raven play important parts from at times, and then there is the lovable Becca and even several cute animals whose conduct made me laugh. I will certainly miss this series, and can only hope its characters get mentioned in future books.

Fly Away with Me by Susan Fox

The picturesque setting and unique individuals in the first book of the Blue Moon Harbor series come alive because of skillful wording and colorful descriptions. What is seen while flying over actual places in the Gulf Islands near Victoria, British Columbia makes me want to visit this beautiful area, and getting to know the many inhabitants in the small fictional town left me thinking they would make great neighbors. Characters created by Susan Fox are always very true-to-life, and the many highs and lows they must face when love unexpectedly enters their life is shown with much realism. Regardless of what is taking place, my own feelings were constantly being affected because of how connected I felt to these likable people. FLY AWAY WITH ME is an emotional journey of determining what is truly important in life.

Though the scenery Eden Blaine first saw after landing in Vancouver is stunning, she has not come to do sightseeing. Her mother is desperate to locate a sister who has not been heard from for years, and finding the missing woman could lift the spirits of her ill parent. Eden’s aunt came to Destiny Island back in the 1960’s to join a commune, and there was no further contact. With no real leads, the Ottawa lawyer plans to talk with some of the older residents that might perhaps remember her relative.

Getting to the bed and breakfast where she will be staying while in Blue Moon Harbor is achieved by flying on a seaplane, and Aaron Gabriel is the pilot. When he hears the reason that Eden has come to the area, he offers to assist her since he knows most of the locals. Because she does not have much time to search, agreeing to let him introduce her to folks will be beneficial. Although her long-time boyfriend is now out of her life, she is not interested is starting a new relationship. But having a short fling with the enticing pilot might just fit into her schedule.

There is plenty of drama all throughout FLY AWAY WITH ME, where family matters and personal wishes collide. Eden is a very loyal daughter because the health problems of her mother come first. Putting the needs of those whom she loves before her own wants is always her main concern, but upon meeting Aaron, she dreams of a future that she knows is impossible. He may have a much different philosophy from Eden when it comes to love, but he surprisingly still finds himself being profoundly drawn to her. I was often held spellbound as I watched these two hopefully work through the many troubles that could keep them from forming a lasting relationship. The dilemmas tossed their way are certainly realistic, as what caused them to worry could arise in the life of anyone.

Emotions run high in the story, and Susan Fox depicts responses with honest reactions and heartfelt discussions. Whether a situation pertains to the romance between Eden and Aaron, or relates to an unforeseen family predicament, every situation comes across as believable. The mystery of what happened to the aunt is cleverly handled, and I kept hoping for a happy ending. There are more books to come in the Blue Moon Harbor series, and I am very eager for the next story being released later this year.
