***REVIEW***
Wild, Crazy Hearts is a fast-paced, wonderful read. The chemistry and connection between the two main characters are strong.  
Brindle is an independent, rebellious woman. She does what she wants. She cares deeply for people, but if someone tries to push her towards something, she pushes back.  
Trace is loyal, strong, and very much a bossy cowboy. He has tried to play by Brindle's rules for years. Trace has not allowed himself to image what the "What Ifs" of the future could be like. 
Brindle and Trace love is wild, strong, and chaotic. They fight, they make each other mad, they make up, and it continues in that cycle. To make things work between them, they have to really try new ways of communicating.  
Reading how Trace and Brindle try to handle their new future is adorable. I love how much the town rallied around them and supported them.

EMBRACING HER HEART
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross. 

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape. 

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

ANYTHING FOR LOVE
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family's Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can't live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she's intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he's never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn't count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.


Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They've never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible. 

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

TRAILS OF LOVE

When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed's new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace's sister Morgyn's business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn't ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

MAKING YOU MINE - Releasing January 22nd, 2020
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
Knox Bentley never liked the pomp and circumstance that came with being wealthy. He’d distanced himself from his pretentious family and their fortune as a young adult and found his own path to success. But even with the world at his fingertips, he realizes something is missing, and after a long stay overseas, he finally knows exactly what it is. His no-strings-attached hookups with Aubrey Stewart, an exquisite and stubbornly independent blonde, are no longer enough for him. They connect on every level, but Aubrey is a fierce businesswoman with a new movie channel on the horizon and no time for much else. She is the deal he can’t close, the precious jewel even his billions can’t buy. Now that he’s back in the States, he’s determined to show her that what they have goes beyond the bedroom and finally make her his.

Books: The Art of Loving Lacy Review & Giveaway


NEW RELEASE…

Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole's rich and romantic storytelling. All Addison Cole novels are written to stand alone, or be read as the larger Sweet with Heat series. 

In The Art of Loving Lacy... 
Lacy Snow wasn’t looking for love when she met strikingly handsome and seductive Dane Braden. But how could she ignore the six-foot-three darkly handsome god who tagged and researched sharks for a living—and made every nerve in her body tangle into an overly sensitive knot? Even her fear of sharks could not suppress their intense attraction.

As founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden travels from port to port, educating and advocating on behalf of the mammals he adores—and spends his nights finding solace in the arms of strangers. The last thing Dane was looking for when he met Lacy Snow was a relationship, and the last thing he expected was to fall in love.

More than a year—and hundreds of flirty texts, steamy phone calls, and sensual video chats—later, they reunite and take passion to a whole new level. But as Lacy’s phobia meets Dane’s past love life, their steamy romance is upended, and when tragedy strikes, Dane and Lacy are forced to face their deepest fears head-on as they try to navigate their own sea of love.

The Art of Loving Lacy is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you're looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy Love in Bloom edition, Sea of Love, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa's sweet-romance pen name.

***REVIEW***
The Art of Loving Lacy is an adorable addition to Sweet Heat series. 
The author did a good job making the characters' personalities enjoyable and lovable. 
Lacy comes off as shy, persistent, and strong. Dane is brave, determined, and caring. The characters have a strong chemistry. The flirting conversations are written well, especially since much of it was with the characters communicating over the phone and text.  
Fear is a big part of the story. Lacy has a fear of sharks after being attacked by one, while Dane is a shark tagger. Dane has a fear of losing the people he loves. I loved that Lacy was willing try to get past that fear to be with Dane. Dane drove me nuts sometimes with how much distance he would put between him and Lacy.  
Overall, the story was written well with the characters having to go beyond their comfort zones to pursue love.

Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break--working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and--just maybe--explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.

When Josh and Riley's friendship heats up, every steamy kiss, and every passionate caress stirs a love they cannot deny.

Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry--and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.

Books: Mad About Moon Review & Giveaway


Wicked Whiskey Love: Sexy Standalone Romance by [Foster, Melissa]
NEW RELEASE........

Fall in love with Jed and Josie in this emotionally captivating, sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.
The perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more! 


Can true love strike twice in one lifetime? 
Josie Beckley refuses to believe there is a limit on happiness. A decade after she escaped her abusive parents and lost touch with her siblings, the death of her husband leaves her and her son homeless. But Josie has never been one to wallow in sadness, and when she takes a chance on reconnecting with her siblings, a sinfully handsome bright light from her past shows up and offers to help her find a way out of the darkness. 

Most people wouldn't see Jed Moon as someone to look up to. He's been in and out of jail and has lived a less-than-stellar lifestyle. But years ago one woman saw through his bullshit, and he's never forgotten her. Now she's back in his life, and as a prospect for the Dark Knights motorcycle club, Jed promises to keep an eye on the sassy, sexy single mother who has never stopped lighting his fantasies on fire. 

Jed and Josie's combustible connection is stronger than ever. Having Josie and her son in his life brings out all of Jed's protective instincts-and visions of a future he never imagined having. But when a shocking revelation knocks the insatiable lovers to their knees, it forces them to make choices that could change their lives forever.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**
***REVIEW***
Mad About Moon is an addicting read. The main characters have a strong connection right from the start.  
Josie has been through hell and back. For having grown up in an abusive home and losing her husband at a young age, Josie is a very strong and independent woman. She's caring and hard working. She's a fantastic mother.  
Jed has had his fair share of trouble. He didn't always have the best home life, but he had good intentions. Jed's is caring, loyal, and getting a fresh start. He makes a great future Dark Knight.  
The story of how Jed and Josie first met is explained very well towards the start of the book. It helps give an understanding to how and why their connection is so strong.
I kept rooting for Josie and Jed. This book made it so easy to fall in love with these characters. 
The minor characters help make this story what it is. Between the Dark Knights, the Whiskeys, and Josie's siblings, it's impossible not to like this story. Not to mention the way Jed interacts with Josie's son. Can you say heart melting??

Books: Bayside Escapes Review and Giveaway


Bayside Heat (Bayside Summers Book 3) by [Foster, Melissa]
NEW RELEASE........
Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

Hold on to your hat for Violet's wildly hot love story! Lizza is up to her old tricks again, and Violet is in for the surprise of a lifetime! 

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn't stand a chance-or at least that's what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she'd never really known-so she snuck away like a thief in the night. 

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she'd always craved and the roots she'd never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it's not the reunion either one imagined. But they've never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre's time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they're destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all. 


***REVIEW***
Bayside Escapes is full of amusement, romance, and friendships. All the characters in this story help bring this book to life and make it a fun read.
Violet seems like a strong woman who is not afraid to say what is on her mind. Violet's lack of filter is my favorite thing about her. Violet is far more than she seems. She has a huge heart, but she keeps it guarded. 
Andre is determined, a leader, and caring. Falling in love before made him rethink his life and what he wanted to do with his career. He seems like a natural people-person and wants to do good. 
I wish the story would have reflected or had flashbacks of when Violet and Andre first met. With Violet's personality, I'm sure it would have been very entertaining.  
I really enjoyed getting to know a few new characters in the Bayside community. I really hope Justin gets his own story.

Now she's finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he's never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on. 

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they've both been aching to walk. But Serena's determined not to give up her shot at the career she's always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?
