Undercover SEAL (SEALs of Coronado #4) by Paige Tyler




Blurb:
He’s everything she should fear… 
Bristol Munoz’s life has never been typical. Or safe. Raised by her father, a Mexican drug lord who murdered her mother, Bristol knows she’s nothing but a bargaining chip to her father. He’ll give her to the man most able to further his cartel’s powerful holdings, and her life will go from bad to worse. Her only hope is to try another escape…Then he arrives. He’s different than the other men in her father’s compound, but no less dangerous. Maybe more so, because she’s attracted to him. 

But all she really wants. 
Working undercover for the CIA was not how Navy SEAL Nash Cantrell wants to spend his time. But keeping missiles out of the wrong hands is something he can handle. However, he didn’t count on part of his mission involving getting close to Bristol. He can’t afford to like her, but can’t stop himself. She’s a commodity her father won’t let go easily. When his cover is blown, Nash has to stop the deal—and save Bristol. 

When the plan goes wrong and Bristol is kidnapped, Nash will break every rule to get her back. 
Or die trying. 

My review:
Navy SEAL Nash Cantrell is the kind of hero everyone can love. He isn’t a player he is just a good guy trying to do a hard job. That job puts him in a lot of dangerous  situations but this is the first time his heart has been on the line. Bristol is in a bad place but help is on the horizon from an unlikely direction. Watching these two find each other made my heart happy.

Lala Thankyou: Dark Homecoming by Erica Gerald Mason




Blurb:
MURDER IS A DRAG...

From the outside looking in, Lazarus Mercy has it all. He’s a fan favorite on a reality tv show, his career as drag queen Lala Thankyou has never been better, and he’s learned to hide his introversion from his adoring fans…until he’s framed for a murder he didn’t commit.

OUT OF TOWN, OUT OF LUCK, UNDER SUSPICION...

Desperate to prove his innocence, Lazarus turns to an old friend to help bring the true killer to justice. Knowing the police are on his tail, Lazarus must let his stage persona loan him the bravery he needs to solve the crime. ---can Lazarus fight his inner demons...while fighting for his life?

My review:
You can’t go home again. Lala Thankyou: Dark Homecoming by Erica Gerald Mason is a short, sweet murder mystery starring Lazarus Mercy and his drag queen persona of Lala Thankyou. Lala is much more self-confident than Laz and it’s going to take all her gumption to figure out why she’s been framed for murder. I fell for Lala and hope to see her in many more adventures.

A New Orleans Threesome (The Vampire, The Witch and The Werewolf #2) by Louisa Bacio


A New Orleans Threesome (The Vampire, The Witch and The Werewolf #2) 
by Louisa Bacio

Blurb:
Haunted by paranormal abilities she can't control and plagued by nightmares about a demon that seeks her soul, Lily Anima travels to New Orleans in search of salvation. She enlists the help of an unlikely couple: a vampire, Lawrence Justice, and a werewolf, Trevor Pack. The attraction is immediate and fierce.
There's only one problem.
Lily's a virgin. And whatever paranormal problem she's having is what has kept her that way. Every time she's tried to do the deed, something stops her.
Together, the trio encounters magic and unspeakable evil, and Trevor and Lawrence attempt to help Lily turn her powers into a gift rather than a curse. Ultimately, to get the demon off her back, Lily's men will have to show her all the wicked ways the three of them can come together.

Warning: Read at your own risk. This book is filled to the brim with steamy m/m sex, a virgin who wants in on the action, and a c*ckblocking demon.

My review:
m/m/f
A New Orleans Threesome is a terrific paranormal romance. There is action, adventure and love. I love that NOLA was as much a character in the book as Law, Trevor and Lily. This book is a sweaty romp.

Born of Air (Dragon Soul #4) by Sean Michael




Blurb:

Meet the Beteferoce brothers: five dragon shifters, each with a strong elemental power. And each with a fierce desire to find his soul mate… 

He said he was flying on a silver dragon. He called me “Markus-meine.” Who would know all that? Who? And how?

SWAT cop and dragon shifter Mark Beteferoce had—and lost—a soul mate. He’s finally at the point where he can get through the days without thinking about what used to be…until he tastes Quincy O’Brien’s doughnuts and takes him home to play. 

Quincy O’Brien is a gifted baker, but at night he dreams of soaring through the sky on dragonback and being topped by the perfect Dom. Mark satisfies the kinky urges Quincy has only explored in his subconscious, pushing his limits and caring for him afterward.

From the start, their connection was more than sexual. It’s known; it’s familiar somehow. And it’s slowly driving Mark insane. What shouldn’t be possible most certainly is, and the bond between himself and Quincy runs deeper than either of them could ever have realized.

My review:
m/m
Dragon shifter Mark Beteferoce lost his soul mate years ago and never expected to find another. Baker Quincy O’Brien was supposed to be a one night stand but turned into so much more. This story is a lot of hot sex with BDSM elements and very little story. It is part of a series but stands on its own.

Order of Protection (Courting Justice #1) by Lexi Blake




Blurb:

A sexy and suspenseful new contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake where love and law entwine for a conviction of the heart.

To high-end defense attorney Henry Garrison, Win Hughes is a woman he met during one of the most trying times of his life. She's soft and warm, and he finds solace in their brief relationship. But Win has a secret. She's actually Taylor Winston-Hughes—born to one of the wealthiest families in the country, orphaned as a child by a tragic accident. Win moves in the wealthiest circles, but her lavish lifestyle hides her pain.

When her best friend is murdered in the midst of a glittering New York gala, Win's charged with the crime, and the only person in the world she wants to see is Henry.

Henry is shocked at the true identity of his lover, but he can't reject the case. This trial could take his new firm into the stratosphere. Still, he's not getting burned by Win again. And yet every turn brings them closer together.

As the case takes a wild turn and Win's entire life is upended, she must look to the people she's closest to in order to find a killer. And Henry must decide between making his case and saving the woman he loves...
 

My review:
Order of Protection is a sexy contemporary that feature two lost souls with trust issues. Henry is rebuilding his life after a disastrous marriage and a stint in rehab for alcohol abuse. Win has other issues including eating issues. These two are terrific together if they can get past their issues.  I really enjoyed this fast paced, steamy story.

Savage Hunger (Savage Shifters #3) by Milly Taiden




Blurb:
Isaline Primrose doesn’t let anyone cut the line at her mom’s bakery, no matter how tall or sexy he his. His custom suit, expensive haircut, and deep brown eyes are making her want things. Very dirty things. It’s totally fine to look even if he is a bossy jerk. But is it okay to have naked fantasies with the commanding business man?
Beast Harte doesn’t do small towns, but Full Moon Bay has something other towns don’t: the perfect building for his deceased father’s long-time dream. When he meets his mate, life should be perfect. It isn’t. Pissing her off was not in his plans, but he wasn’t used to taking orders, only giving them. Now he has his work cut out for him.
Isaline sets up some challenges to see if Beast is the right man for her. What neither knows is other players are at work with their own hidden agendas. Beast guarantees two things—he's getting his mate and his building, and he won’t let anyone get in his way.

My review:
Savage Hunger is sweet, funny and sexy. He is a big time city billionaire. She is a small town girl who works at her momma’s bakery. She doesn’t care who he is rude is rude and she lets him know about it. He is smitten. Nobody treats him like regular folk. He is used to folk kowtowing because he is the boss, rich and intimidating. He is also a dragon shifter. He does have a softer side which we get to see in this fun tale. Isa has a fun backstory too. This is my new favorite Milly Taiden couple.

Ocean Light (Psy-Changeling Trinity #2) by Nalini Singh




Blurb:

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh dives beneath the surface of her Psy-Changeling world into a story of passionate devotion and selfless love...

Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there's a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment--taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he's at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling...

Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won't hide the facts of Bo's condition from him or herself. She's suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine...

But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back--even if it means striking a devil's bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy...
 

My review:

Nalini Singh is one of my all time favorite storytellers. She could write a phonebook and I would buy it. Ocean Light is a prime example of why that is so. Flawed characters who are trying to make their bit of the world better. Fighting fate. Love. Honor. Excitement. And most importantly a well crafted story.

Ain't She a Peach? (Southern Eclectic #2) by Molly Harper




Blurb:
An Atlanta ex-cop comes to sleepy Lake Sackett, Georgia, seeking peace and quiet—but he hasn’t bargained on falling for Frankie, the cutest coroner he’s ever met.

Frankie McCready talks to dead people. Not like a ghost whisperer or anything—but it seems rude to embalm them and not at least say hello.

Fortunately, at the McCready Family Funeral Home & Bait Shop, Frankie’s eccentricities fit right in. Lake Sackett’s embalmer and county coroner, Frankie’s goth styling and passion for nerd culture mean she’s not your typical Southern girl, but the McCreadys are hardly your typical Southern family. Led by Great-Aunt Tootie, the gambling, boozing, dog-collecting matriarch of the family, everyone looks out for one another—which usually means getting up in everyone else’s business.

Maybe that’s why Frankie is so fascinated by new sheriff Eric Linden...a recent transplant from Atlanta, he sees a homicide in every hunting accident or boat crash, which seems a little paranoid for this sleepy tourist town. What’s he so worried about? And what kind of cop can get a job with the Atlanta PD but can’t stand to look at a dead body?

Frankie has other questions that need answering first—namely, who’s behind the recent break-in attempts at the funeral home, and how can she stop them? This one really does seem like a job for the sheriff—and as Frankie and Eric do their best Scooby-Doo impressions to catch their man, they get closer to spilling some secrets they thought were buried forever.

My review:
OMG! I LOVED THIS STORY! Ain't She a Peach? is a sweet sometimes silly sometimes sad small town romance that will leave you believing in possibilities. Eric is a big city cop who has moved to tiny Lake Sackett and runs into a one night stand he hasn’t been able to forget. Franky is a quirky character in her small town. With rainbow hair, eclectic clothes and attitude to spare Frankie takes her job as mortician and coroner very seriously. Now she has to work with the hunk she ran out on.  Can the big city cop and the country mouse put their differences aside and learn to get along. I can tell you it won’t be easy but it can be done.
Well done.

Whiskey Reveals (Whiskey and Lies #2) by Carrie Ann Ryan




Blurb:
One whiskey-saturated night turns into something far more in the second standalone installment of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Fox Collins likes his life just the way it is. His siblings are falling in love all around him, but he’d much rather focus on his next story than on a serious relationship. However, when his latest one-night stand returns to Whiskey—this time for good—he’ll need to learn to trust his instincts to figure out if he can live without her in his life.

Former dancer Melody Waters is finally ready to settle down in her grandmother’s small Pennsylvania hometown. Bad decisions and fateful nights have changed her path more than once, but now she’s focused on one thing: opening her new own dance studio. But fate is a funny thing, and once again, she’ll be forced to learn that actions have consequences and some repercussions can not only change your life forever, they can also come back to haunt you…one broken promise at a time.

My review:
Whiskey Reveals shows the softer side of love. Fox is not an alpha male but he feels the same things an alpha male does sometimes. Melody is as messed up as any other woman but stronger than she knows. These two may not have started out the right way but I just know they are going to end up just fine together. This is a really sweet romance with some smoking hot sex thrown in for fun. Fox may very well be my favorite Collins brother. Like the others this book can be read standalone but will send you rushing to read the others.

Dragon Undercover (Dark Scales Division Book 1) by Lia Davis & Kerry Adrienne




Blurb:
Dragon shifter and team lead for DSD—Dark Scales Division—Owen Ashton has never lost a case. 

When his sister’s murderer turns serial killer, he is determined to take the rogue dragon down, for good. His team tracks the murderer to a small town in Minnesota and Owen goes undercover to finally end Huff’s reign of terror. The last thing Owen expected was to discover his mate vacationing in the lake house next to his.

Nadia Hasting, along with her sister Sage, take the first vacation in years since their parents’ deaths. Visiting the lake house their family rented every year when they were children is exactly what they need for downtime before Sage heads to college. The hot neighbor is a bonus, but Nadia isn’t sure she’s ready to date. But the pull toward the sexy stranger proves too strong to ignore. 

When Sage goes missing, Nadia turns to Owen to rescue her sister from a mad man. 

But will Owen’s dragon scare her away from the one man that can save them all?

My review:
What happens when you mix a shifter romance with a serial murder investigation? Read Dragon Undercover and find out. In my opinion dragon shifter and team lead for DSD—Dark Scales Division—Owen Ashton and his team should never have been on this case to start with. They were too close to it. But I guess it kept them motivated and it did allow Owen to meet his mate. Nadia is smart and responsible and stronger than she knows.
This story is filled with love, loss, duty and determination. I look forward to getting better acquainted with the team. Fun action and romance.

Black Hollow: Reviving Love by Cassidy K. O'Connor




Blurb:
Welcome to Black Hollow, the most paranormal town in America. When your mayor is a Griffin and the local diner is run by mermaid's serving fish and chips, you know you’ll never have a mundane day.

Sarah hasn’t been in a relationship since she left her abusive ex-husband. When her close friends invite her to a weekend in Black Hollow she takes her first step toward moving on. What she doesn’t expect is to meet a man or Frankenstein’s monster in Adam's case.

Adam has lived his life hidden from the world, tired of the stares from strangers. He roamed for centuries tortured with not being able to age or die. He found solace in Black Hollow, it was the perfect place to be himself and forge friendships with other immortals. Until Sarah comes along and he finds the one thing he can’t live without. Complete acceptance and love.

Nothing is ever as easy as that though, someone wants to keep humans out of Black Hollow and Sarah is the first victim. Can Adam save her and his future?
 

My review:
Reviving Love is not your average paranormal romance. What if Frankenstein’s monster still lived? Is there anyone who could love him? Adam is currently living in Black Hollow, Massachusetts a town filled with immortal beings where he doesn’t stand out as different. Single mother Sarah has seen monsters up close and personal. As a formerly abused wife she knows that looks don’t define a person. When she meets Adam the scars don’t detract from the instantaneous attraction she feels for him.
I really enjoyed this sweet love story and look forward to visiting Black Hollow again.

Sharp Change (Black Meadows Pack Book 1) by Milly Taiden




Blurb:
**Previously published under the same title but as a shorter story. It is now a FULL LENGTH with an added 25K words.**
*ADDITIONAL BONUS: Pack Princess by Milly Taiden and Mina Carter as a limited time read*

Sophia Reece is a genius geneticist who's isolated the link between shifters and their animals. Unfortunately, she's also a very shy and clumsy woman. That's never more evident than when she has a not so little accident with her lion and wolf samples and ends up becoming her own guinea pig. Watch out, those needles are sharp. Damn, shit just got real.
Alpha wolf Chase knows Sophia is his mate. And if she weren't so shy and always running from him, he'd have made his move with her. He can't stop thinking about her sexy human body and how badly he wants to dip his tongue into all her curves. But when shy Sophia suddenly flashes golden eyes and smells of heat, he's not sure what's going on, but is more than ready to get her naked ASAP.
Sophia isn't prepared for her first mating heat or the fact her feelings for Chase refuse to remain under wraps. When someone wants her research, she'll find out what she's really made of. Who says smart girls can't be alphas too? Things are a lot more complicated than being perfectly mated. The race is on to stop the bad guys from getting their hands on her work and staying alive. Sophia's about to learn that being in love doesn't stop someone from coming face to face with death.

My review:
Sharp Change has my favorite type of heroine. Sophia is shy, zaftig, and smart as can be. When her sister is bitten by a rogue werewolf and is forever changed Sophia wants to give her choices. She has finally figured out which strand of DNA contains the shifter gene. Unfortunately when returning her samples to the safe Sophia accidentally stabs herself with both lion and wolf shifter DNA. Her life is about to get very interesting. Alpha wolf Chase is Sophia’s mate. He is her best shot of surviving the changes that are happening to her.
This book is a sizzling hot paranormal romantic suspense with smoking hot good guys, some creepy bad guys and a whole lot of fun.

Willow Carter can’t believe Nadine has shown up at her door after being missing for two months. When she mentions going back for her brother, Willow decides to go with her. Liam went undercover almost a year ago, but no one has heard from him in ten months. The only problem is when they show up he has no idea who they are. Is he still undercover? Or did something happen to him? 
Liam Carson is on the fast track to recovery after being wounded in a rescue mission.

He’s intrigued at first then quickly puts up his defenses when they try to tell him he’s a federal agent. With his dark past there’s no way he could be an agent of any kind. Why do they insist he’s someone else? Why are they really here? 

My review:
First, the cover is lickable. Each book in this series gets better. Liam has been a mysterious secondary character and now we get his story and what a story it is. Turns out he has more of a back story than even he knows. This book takes you on a mystery ride that will keep you guessing. Watch what happens when his past and present collide.

Threat of Danger (Mission Recovery #2) by Dana Marton




Blurb:
Falling in love can be a deadly proposition in this pulse-quickening Mission Recovery novel from the New York Times bestselling author.

Jess Taylor and Derek Daley were in the throes of first love in a small Vermont town when they were kidnapped by a serial killer. They escaped his clutches—but not the trauma of the unsolved crime. With their lives changed forever and their romance cut short, they went their separate ways to exorcise their fears.

Jess is living on the edge as Hollywood’s hottest stuntwoman. It’s no longer terror thrumming through her veins. It’s adrenaline. Derek is a former Navy SEAL spinning his ordeals into heart-pounding bestselling thrillers. But when Jess is called home on a family emergency, she must face the past—and face the man she left behind, who is just as haunted and, like her, still so much in love.

Now, as an old flame reignites, Jess and Derek are taking advantage of second chances and putting their bad memories behind them. But here, in the quiet town of Taylorville, a killer is getting a second chance as well.

My review:
Threat of Danger is a sweet and exciting second chance romantic suspense. Ten years ago Jess took a chance with the boy she’d crushed on forever. Their abduction wasn’t Derek’s fault but it did send them in very different directions. Now they are both back in the small town they grew up in and so is the guy who abducted them. Can they find their way back to each other? Will their abductor ever be found and brought to justice?
I really enjoyed watching Jess and Derek find their way as I was trying to determine who the masked man was. This was a sweet and engaging story.

Apocalypse Rising: The Complete Series by Dagmar Avery and K. Margaret


Apocalypse Rising: The Complete Series by Dagmar Avery and K. Margaret

Blurb:
The Apocalypse is coming. The Brotherhood has watched and protected this world from the oncoming darkness for as long as time has existed. Each age brings a new threat, a new way for the darkness to eclipse the light forever. It has been over five hundred years since the last major trials, and the world is due. 

Join four warriors, bred to fight the oncoming darkness as their trials begin… and the women that must safeguard their hearts. And it all goes down in Savannah, GA. 

6 Book series bundle includes: 

Eclipsed Heart 
Spectral Heart 
Eternal Heart 
Sacred Heart 
Guarded Heart 
Darkened Heart 

My review:

The Apocalypse is the end of times unless the Brotherhood can stop it therefore it is only right that these books will make you feel and help you discover what life is worth living for. These stories deal with dark times but aren’t a dark read. 

 Eclipsed Heart 
Isaac and his band of brothers are warriors whose purpose is to keep the apocalypse from occurring but of course there are bad guys who want it to happen so they can build a new world from the ashes. The prophecy has the brothers finding their soulmates as part of their strength for the coming battles. I love a brainy guy and Isaac just did it for me. Mags Morgan is a lucky girl. 

Spectral Heart 
I LOVED THIS BOOK! The characters slew me.
Gunnar Bergman is a big brute of a guy who has never had to woo a woman to his bed. But he wants this one in his heart and he is going to have to work at it a bit harder than normal. But life for him and his brothers in arms is anything but normal right now.
Sadie Coulter is a petite unique individual. She is an artist with tattoo’s, piercings and multicolored hair. She owns her body and her heart but the big guy is making her feel like she might want to share.
Sadie made this book for me. She is kick ass take no prisoners. She can definitely handle Gunnar. I liked that Gunnar accepts her for who she is and enjoys her fighting alongside him.
Having been to Savannah Georgia several times I am thrilled that the authors made the grand old lady a character in this book. 

 Eternal Heart 
We met Maggie and Isaac in Eclipsed Heart (Apocalypse Rising Book 1). This book takes place two years later and starts five days before their wedding. This story is sweet and sexy with some laugh out loud moments. There is wedding madness, in-law issues and lots of love. I recommend having read Eclipsed Heart and Spectral Heart first so you can get the most out of this story.

Sacred Heart 
Four warriors to protect us from the apocalypse. Two have found their fated mates and now it’s Halvard’s turn. Hal is the quiet one, the workaholic, the one who doesn’t date. Hal’s trial isn’t made clear in the prophecy and he isn’t going to be shown his mate in a dream like Issac and Gunnar. He has pushed aside his feelings for Priya for five years but current events have thrown them together and he is torn between duty and love. 
The authors take us through heaven and hell and back again as we watch Hal go through a trial that will have him questioning everything he holds dear.
This is a fantastic world with characters you have to love.

Guarded Heart 
Guarded Heart is about Oliver and Bailey two secondary characters in the Apocalypse Rising series. Both of these characters have stories we had no clue about and this book reveals that Oli is not just a young man with a horrible upbringing and Bailey is more than T&A and a smart assed bartender. This book may be short but it is packed with a hell of a story.

Darkened Heart 
OMG! Break out the tissues. This book will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride that will leave you reeling.
We knew that Hoke’s trial would be difficult because he’s already found and lost the love of his life. It’s been over a hundred years and he still pines but he is determined to do his duty. This book drags Hoke and thus us over the coals and back but you have to believe that it will be worth it in the end.
Darkened Heart is a terrific story and a fitting end to this series.

Shadow Keeper (Shadow Riders #3) by Christine Feehan




Blurb:
One family brings its own brand of justice to the streets of Chicago's shadowy underworld as #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to a series hot enough to burn...

The paparazzi can't get enough of infamous bad boy Giovanni Ferraro. But unknown to them--and the women he beds--he's just playing a role. Keeping the spotlight on himself keeps it off the family business. And if this lethal shadow rider can't hunt in the dark, he'll find his pleasure elsewhere...

Sasha Provis grew up on a Wyoming ranch and thought she knew how to protect herself from predators. But in the nightclub where she works, she's fair game--until one of the owners steps in to protect her. Giovanni is gorgeous. He's dangerous. And his every touch takes her breath away.

The devil at her heels may have finally met its match...

My review:
Shadow Keeper is Giovanni’s story. There isn’t a whole lot of shadow riding in this story as Giovanni is recovering from a couple of gun shots to the leg. He is put on playboy duty distracting the world and providing alibis for those that are riding the shadows and playing equalizer. He hates not being able to ride and being chased by unabashed gold diggers.  He meets hard working Sasha Provis while she is working the VIP section at his club. She is woefully unprepared for the entitled assholes (including Giovanni) she deals with there. Giovanni is smitten from the start but has a long way to grovel to get her to give him the time of day. But when she is in danger there is no one better to keep her safe than a broken bad boy.
I liked Sasha. She is smart, spunky and honest to a fault. If anyone can keep Giovanni in line it will be Sasha. I really like this quirky series and anxiously await the next installment.

Beyond Control (Texas Trilogy #3) by Kat Martin




Blurb:
When Victoria Langford got engaged, she told herself to give love a chance. Six months later, she's on the run from her angry, abusive ex-fiancé with her four-year-old daughter and nowhere to go.

Seventy miles north of Dallas, the Iron River Ranch is pretty much nowhere. That’s what its new owner, Josh Cain, wanted when he came back from Afghanistan. Big skies, quiet nights, no trouble.

One look tells Josh the pretty redhead with the adorable little girl will give him trouble of the most personal kind. But he’s seen trouble before, and he doesn't scare easy. Not when “accidents” start happening around the ranch. Not when Tory’s best friend back in Phoenix is abducted and brutalized. Not even when it looks like their current problems are only the tip of the iceberg.

But if he gets too close to fierce, determined Tory, Josh knows his nights are going to be anything but quiet. And that’s one possibility no amount of training can prepare him for . . .

My review:
Beyond Control is an intriguing romantic suspense novel with a hot former Marine turned cowboy and a single mother in distress. I liked that the author gave Josh and Tory time to find and fall for each other. Josh is sweet, strong and protective. He is also a guy so a little dense at times. Tory is smart and stronger than she gives herself credit for. I really enjoyed their story. Though this is part of a series it can be read standalone.

Love You So Madly (Love You So Stories #2) by Tara Lain




Blurb:
Ben Shane has it all… and he’d like to give some of it back. While he loves his job heading a foundation that funds worthy causes around the world, his engagement to one of America’s wealthiest men leaves him feeling more like a trophy wife than a valued partner. The first warning that his relationship might not be designed to last is his irresistible lust for Dusty Kincaid, the golden-haired, bright-eyed handyman for his company.

Though Dusty is odd for a twenty-three-year-old—no liquor, no sugar, and he can’t even drive—the more Ben gets to know Dusty, the more he admires him. But is Ben going to give up a guy who drives a Ferrari for one who takes the bus? He must be mad. Dusty knows he and Ben can never work. 

After all, Ben’s perfect… and Dusty isn’t. But Ben might surprise everyone with proof that he’s only madly in love.

My review:
m/m
Love You So Madly is a sweet, feel good romance that will leave you with a smile and a sigh. Ben is a workaholic who loves what he does and isn’t about to become a trophy wife. The gilded cage will strangle him. Dusty is sweet, kind and a bit sheltered because he’s had to deal with health issues. Watching these two find each other made my heart happy.
