R E V I E W ➠ Made for Loving You by Kait Nolan

A wounded warrior
After the catastrophic loss of his best friend in battle, Army Ranger Tyson Brooks trades in his fatigues for a badge, moving to Eden’s Ridge, Tennessee to rebuild his life and find a way to live in a world without Garrett. But no amount of protecting and serving the citizens of Stone County is enough to override the guilt that he simply didn’t do enough.
An incurable romantic
Romance author Paisley Parish has spent her whole career chasing the perfect hero and finding all the real life options lacking. Until she runs into her high school sweetheart—the one who left her for the Army. The old spark is definitely still alive, but the man carries far more scars than the boy.
A second chance to save each other
When Paisley becomes the target of malicious harassment, the police have no suspects, no leads, no way to make her feel safe. As her stalker escalates, she turns to the one guy she knows can protect her. Ty’s determined to put a stop to the harassment, even if it means moving in with the woman who’s so much more than the girl he used to love. He just has to remember to guard his own heart in the process.

NEW to me author and books. I actually was going through the PR sign up’s and I read the blurb to this and really liked it. Thank you for my ARC.

Paisley and Ty really captivated me from the beginning, their loyalty and the love to one another (makes you only dream about it) and then of course I got broken when it all broke so to say. When Paisley dreamed of forever Ty was battling something bigger. Many years late and Paisley is still the same girl now a woman but can’t deny her heart for Ty. Ty on the other had is the same boy now a man but with even bigger darkness he is battling with himself. I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t say too much but these two truly will break you and mend you and in the process you will be captivated with each page.

I am always honest with my reviews, as much as this may have been great to read the style is not something I would want to pursue further as in more books by the author. It’s not bad just my preference, I can always tell where I will go on from reading a NEW to me author. I do wish the author the best of course.

R E V I E W ➠ One More Time by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Back in her hometown of Ruby Falls, Aria Heart is determined to find herself and the happiness that has always felt just out of reach. Something that would be a lot easier to do if her parents weren’t so close by, reminding her just why she left town as soon as she could, and if the house she just purchased wasn’t already giving her problems.
Just when Aria starts to second guess her decision, Tide Goodman knocks on her door and shoves his way under her defenses. Is it possible that the happiness she’s been searching for is attached to a man like Tide, the guy she crushed on in high school who didn’t even seem to know she existed? A man with an adorable daughter and baggage of his own?
In order to find out, she’ll have to put everything, including her heart, on the line one more time.

RELEASE DATE: March 23, 2021

Not my first read by the author, and well everyone I think by now knows that she is my top favorite author! She happens to be the 3rd author ever I’ve read when I started reading and romance. Pretty special to me and her writing speaks to me. I have read every single book, co book and world books! TOP fan what can I say 🙂 I have been waiting on this one, gah my heart! I loved Tide in Colton’s story which is Book 1 and I would highly recommend reading that one, so I was excited to see Tide’s love story because of his situation. That said let’s get into it.

I don’t even know where to start, I guess with the hero’s situation and that situation is his ex-wife who is gosh, it was hard for me to have any sympathy for her at all. The only thing that kind of held me over is that she really does love their daughter aside from her messed up parent’s relationship. Tide is a contactor and the way he meets Aria AGAIN is not conventional. His foreman had called and said if Tide could check out this emergency call, while Aria’s house was half falling apart, at that moment it was a ceiling and part of her living room area. In knocks Tide and to Aria’s NON-surprise that Tide doesn’t remember her, after all they did not run in the same circle back in HS. They start it off a little rough (but just the right way for the story) but just the dynamic between them fits so well, from the arguing to the looks and the THE KISS! SWOON CITY in this one, Tide truly is not only handsome, sexy, smart and swoony but also just beautiful with his daughter, makes you melt right away. Just what a man is supposed to be like!

But Aria comes from money, silver spoon if you will and even though everyone categorized her in ‘that rich girl’ she knew how hard that was to be in, with that silver spoon shoved right down her throat. Messed up parents but she came out on top, she is a award winning author and a woman of her own, buying her own house and moving after her divorce which was a joke to start with. She has always had a crush on Tide and remembers him vividly from the younger years. When she finds out he has a daughter I think she falls in love with him ever more, it’s so sweet to see them all together. But happiness is always accompanied by bitter, hate and trouble. That’s what you get in here, a little bit of parents, ex’s and hurtles to overcome. But boy do they ever overcome it beautifully, because that BOOM and love always wins!

R E V I E W ➠ The Guardian by Kimberly Kincaid

(The Intelligence Unit #2)

Guard against any danger. Especially if it comes from within.
Detective Matteo Garza doesn’t just do the job—he is the job.
He’s learned the hard way that work and pleasure can’t co-exist.
So when his little sister’s best friend accidentally uncovers a money laundering scheme
led by one of Remington’s most cold-blooded criminals,
Garza vows to keep things strictly business as he keeps her safe.
No matter how much the quirky mathematician
makes him feel things best left buried.
No matter how much she makes him want.
Delia Sutton knows she’s not like most people,
just like she knows she needs to forget her ages-old crush on Matteo
and focus on survival.
But the closer they get, the bolder she becomes—
the more she breaks down his carefully crafted barriers to discover the man beneath.
Danger is closer than either of them could possibly imagine
and no one can be trusted.
Delia needs a guardian to fight by her side, and Matteo will do anything to protect her.
No matter who the enemy is.

The Guardian is a scorching forbidden lovers romantic suspense featuring a grumpy Alpha hero who would walk into fire to save the woman he loves and a smart-is-sexy number-nerd heroine who would save him right back. Equal parts heart-pounding suspense and steamy romance. Complete standalone with no cheating and a full (but hard-fought!) HEA.

NEWish to me author, I have read only one other book by this author and it’s been a while so this will feel very new to me. After reading the blurb I wanted to read this so bad so I was happy to be chosen for a ARC.

This best friends older brother, enemy-to suspense romance was a lot of fun to read. Little predictable but all in all I enjoyed the dynamic and side characters very much. The heroine in this is probably my favorite because she is a geek but so much more smarter than that, quiet but with a back bone and very sweet/spunky. The hero is a very straight forward career only type of male. He is manly, alpha, serious and kind of mean at times but that’s just because he doesn’t contain any humor bones inside him, hehe they are rather dry and crusty for the old man.

Matteo & Delia are two people who you would never think to put together but when they are in the same proximity, it’s sizzling and something about them together, this is where I really enjoyed them both couldn’t pick a favorite really. This is suspenseful, dangerous, twist, turns, you truly will be glued to each page. I am so glad I gave this a chance!
