My review:
Gonna Marry for Honey is a terrific addition to this series. This fast paced sweet and sexy fake marriage story stars a sexy biker studying for the bar exam and his adorable son, a sassy esthetician who has had her heart taken advantage of and isn’t ready to trust herself oh and a bunch of bad guys too. This story was a terrific escape and though it is part of a series can be read stand alone.

The Matchmaker's Match (Man's Best Friend #3) by Nicole Flockton

Could the best man be her best option?

The last person Meredith Turner expects to see at her best friend’s wedding rehearsal dinner is the guy she had a one night stand with. What’s worse, Lincoln Forrest is the best man and as maid of honor, her partner. To add insult to injury, she has to leave the rehearsal dinner early, and Lincoln is the one to help her with a deeply personal problem. The aftermath of that night brings big changes for them both.

Lincoln Forrest has helped his best friend meet the woman of his dreams, but recently he’s made a series of bad decisions, the biggest being leaving his career with the Army. Now the former K-9 handler is looking for a new career and trying to get his life back on track. Helping Meredith in her time of need connects her to him more than he expected. On a mission to right the wrong he created, Linc will do whatever is needed. But when the attraction that first drew them together flares to life again, will the obstacles between them be too much to overcome? Or has the matchmaker met his match?

My review:
The Matchmaker's Match is a sweet tale of found love. These two characters are just meant to be. From an explosive one night stand to best man/maid of honor at a wedding and all the other things that bring these two together. I loved watching these two come together and heal each other. Linc was sigh worthy and Buster is just adorable.

Evelyn “Evie” Vincent and Sebastian Nichols can’t stand each other. 

Or can they? 

When Sebastian hires Evie’s father as a handyman on his run-down ranch, the two are constantly running into each other.

When a threat from Evie’s past puts her life in danger, Sebastian realizes he’s fighting a losing battle. 

Can he save the woman who’s healed his damaged heart before it’s too late? 

My review:
Saving Evie is a sweet romantic suspense. Evie has had a tough life but has succeeded at getting through foster care and college. She is now a teacher in Bitter Creek Montana. She has a good heart and is stronger than she knows.
Sebastian lost his leg and military career and is now starting over too. He doesn’t want to like the little teacher but something about her touches him. When she is in danger he knows he has to save her.
These two are perfect for each other and will leave you with a smile.

Exquisitely Broken by M. Jay Granberry

What happens in Vegas…?

Sinclair James wasn’t from my world.
She didn’t have my pedigree or family money.
She was everything I never wanted,
Everything I now realize I needed.
I loved her for six years, her soul, her body, her music.

Until I threw it all away.

One decision changed everything.
One decision destroyed what we had.

She slipped from my life as quietly as she had stolen my heart
But now she’s back.

Sinclair is still mine, she just doesn’t know it yet.
This time I’m not letting her go.

So, what happens in Vegas…?

A second chance to repair what was broken.

My review:
Exquisitely Broken is an angsty second chance romance. He is from money she is from the wrong side of the tracks. He was smitten from first glance and convinced her to give it a shot. Then he messed up and she uses it as an excuse to break away even though it breaks her heart. Now four years later she is back in town and not the foster kid he first met. Can he convince her to let the past go and create a future with him? This book will twist you up and put you through a wringer before we get the answers.

Fireborn (Born Prophecy #1) by Katie MacAlister

What if a war was taking place under your nose? 
Two ancient races locked in a battle for survival. 
Which side would you take? 

Allegria appears to all to be nothing more than a simple priestess devoted to worship of the sun goddess. Hallow is a masterless apprentice. Deo was meant to save the world and bring the Fireborn and Starborn together in peace. 

But then invaders beseiged the land of the Starborn, breaking the prophecy. Now Allegria has fled the priesthood, and wields the power of the sun. Hallow accepts the mantle of leadership he so long avoided. And Deo is tormented and tortured by the power of the invaders, using chaos itself to create an army that will drive the interlopers from the land, and bring about the peace of the Fourth Age. 

The three unlikely heroes must learn to trust where there is suspicion, to believe where there is only doubt, and to fight when all hope is lost.

My review:
After a slow start Fireborn takes off and keeps you riveted. This isn’t typical light hearted Katie MacAlister this is epic fantasy. This is trudging through the detritus of war. Dealing with the politics of prophecy and gods. It took me awhile to warm up to the characters but by the end I liked them and wanted to see them succeed. Great world building. Cliff hanger.

Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues (Mystic Bayou #2.5) by Molly Harper

A hilarious new standalone novella brimming with otherworldly charm from the reigning queen of paranormal romantic comedy Molly Harper!

Ingrid Asher is the newest resident of Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where shapeshifters, vampires, witches and dragons live alongside humans.

Ingrid doesn’t ask for much. The solitary tree nymph just wants to live a quiet life running her ice-cream shop in peace. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to shake her new neighbor, Rob Aspern, head of the League’s data science department and so good looking it just isn’t fair.

If there’s one thing Ingrid doesn’t need, it’s someone poking around in her business. But the more she gets to know the hunky mathematician, the more she finds herself letting her guard down. Can she trust him with her secrets, or will her past destroy everything?

My review:
Even Tree Nymphs Get the Blues is a tale of starting anew and finding love. This is a sweet novella that takes place in the quirky town of Mystic Bayou. Ingrid Asher is a tree nymph and once she relaxes and gets to know the folks in Mystic Bayou she might even like it.  This story tickled me and left me with a smile.
