Her Secret Husband {Book #4 Secrets of Eden} {Book Review}

 
Title: Her Secret Husband {Secrets of Eden Book #4}
 
Author: Andrea Laurence
 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
Book Description:
 
Love, honor—and vow to keep the marriage a secret!

Years ago, Heath Langston eloped with Julianne Eden. Their parents wouldn't have approved. So when the marriage remained unconsummated, they went their separate ways without telling anyone what they'd done.

Now family turmoil forces Heath and Julianne back into the same town—into the same house. Heath has had enough of living a lie. It's time for Julianne to give him the divorce she's avoided for so long—or to fulfill the promise in her smoldering glances and finally become his wife in more than name only.

My Review:
 
       Oh my gosh I can't not believe the Secret of Eden series has come to an end. It almost makes me want to cry. But I guess all good series must come to an end at some point and time. I will say this though I will miss these Eden boys so much. I had been patiently or may more like impatiently waiting to read Her Secret Husband, ever since I finished reading Heir to Scandal. In fact I was probably most excited to read Heath's story the most.
 
        I mean really we get to find out what the answer is to the Big secret that the Eden boy's have been carrying around for years and years. Even though I had to admit I pretty much figured it out back it Brody's story. But I just wanted to find out if I figured out the mystery right or not. And yes I was right about the Big secret.
 
       Of course as I said above I loved Heath. He's the little brother who's been carrying the biggest weight of the secret on his shoulders. And Heath's love and how much he wants to protect his family shines through in this book.
 
       Hmmm what can I say about Julianne in this book. This is really the first book we really get to know Julianne. I mean she's mentioned in the other books, but we don't really get to know her. And I'm not sure if we really get to know her in this book. You can see she loves her parents, see she cares about foster brothers, see she loves Heath. But I'm not really sure we really get to know her, except for what happened with her.
 
       I'd have to give this book 4 out of 5 stars. There are a lot of plus's in this book, ex. we figure out the mystery. But I also kinda felt like a couple of times Andrea left some stuff out, that really needed to be there. I also felt like the story was rushed a little bit at times. But I did enjoy the story and the whole series so that is why I'm giving it 4 stars and would recommend it.

**SPOT LIGHT** SNAP by Katie Porter & Giveaway: 10/5/14





Book Information:

Book: Snap
 
Author: Katie Porter
 
Genre: Erotic Romance
 

Summary:


Captain Laurence Madigan is an anomaly—a levelheaded risk taker who learned the dark side of life in Manchester’s slums. He needed those skills to survive fourteen months as a prisoner of Firebird, a shadowy Russian cartel.


When rescued, he receives less than a hero’s welcome. He’s considered a wild card—or even a double agent. After enduring agony and degradation for Command Force Alpha, he’s determined to clear his name and bring Firebird down…even if it means escaping CFA’s London facility with a very personal hostage.


Oxford-educated psychologist Gemma Calloway should fight her abductor tooth and claw, but loyalty to her old friend wins out. Isolated in a rustic hideaway, she tends his wounds and can’t help staring at his scars and prison tattoos.


Their impromptu safe house becomes a haven of uneasy trust and potent, gathering desires. As they sort present dangers from past affection, Gemma realizes she’s in over her head…and up to her heart with longing for a good man whose last reason for living could be revenge.


       You can purchase SNAP on Amazon , B & N, iBooks, Google Play , and on Kobo
 
 
Excerpt:

 
“Come here,” Laurie said, crooking his finger toward Gemma.

 
She took one step, then cocked both a hip and an eyebrow. “Why?”

 
He draped his hands over the arms of the chair and lifted his chin in challenge. “Because I want you to. Because you want to.”

 
Her mouth parted so Laurie caught a peek of the damp and delicate inner rim of her ripe lower lip. Her feet moved toward him. Only one step at first, then another. She locked her gaze with his, so he felt as if he were reeling her in.

 
He was trying so hard to fool them with this sane act. They both knew monsters of the worst sort dwelled and gnawed in the dark recesses of his mind. Guilt was the hardest to bear, chewing on the few soft bits remaining of Laurie. Here, however, when they breathed too hard and when Laurie’s pulse rushed in his ears, he would claim what he could—even if it meant taking advantage of her lowered defenses. He knew compassion fueled her desire, but he couldn’t find it in him to give a damn.

 
She stood between his knees. He leaned forward and found the bottom button of her plaid shirt. When Laurie parted the placket, she tightened her sleek stomach muscles by sucking in a breath. He spread a hand across her flesh. Resilience beneath silken skin revealed her fitness. She was lean beauty, wrapped in agility and powered by a canny, too-hopeful mind.

He pressed his lips to the tender spot beneath her navel. She breathed faster now and rested her hands at the back of his neck. Sensation worked over his skin like the kiss of a disappointment yet to come. Nothing like this lasted

He's So Fine by Jill Shalvis Release Day & Giveaway: 10/12/14

 

Book Information:


Book: He’s So Fine


Author: Jill Shalvis


Genre: Contemporary Romance



Summary:


For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It's the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she's rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she's ever laid hands on.


Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to "save" him. In fact, he'd like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He's just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole's heart, or will it be the end of Olivia's days in little Lucky Harbor?


  You can purchase He's So Fine on AmazonB & N, and on iBooks.


Excerpt:


“Dry off,” Cole said, and stepped back from Olivia.


She nodded but didn’t move.


“Olivia?” he asked.


Her face was a mask of misery. “Mmmy arms won’t wwwork.”


Shit. He quickly and gently pushed her back down to the bench, sat at her side, and began to pile blankets over the top of them both.


“Wwhat are you ddoing?”


“Sharing my body heat,” he said.


“I cccan’t feel any hhheat.”


“You will.” Beneath the blankets, he reached for the towel she still had wrapped around her. “Don’t freak,” he warned. “I’m just going to remove the wet towel and pull you into me.”


She opened her mouth, but using her sluggishness to his benefit, Cole quicklystripped the towel away from her, wrapping his arms around her, pulling her into him as two things happened simultaneously. One, she squeaked. Probably trying to formulate her next threat.


And two—holy shit—he realized she was completely, totally, one hundred percent naked beneath the layer of blankets.


And pissed. “Yyyour pants!” she gasped. “Thththey’re cccold!”


“Sorry, but I’m trying to do the right thing here,” he said through clenched teeth. Jesus. He couldn’t see a thing below her neck, but he could sure as hell feel her. His hands were on her hip and low on her back, respectively, not touching anything he shouldn’t be, but damn she was soft, and at the feel of her, his brain clicked off. Just completely flatlined.

Hot Rebel & Giveaway: 10/12/14



Book Information:


Title: Hot Rebel


Author: Lynn Raye Harris


Genre: Romantic Suspense

      

Summary:


A rebel on the run…


Victoria Royal is a traitor. Or so the U.S. government believes. Victoria was once a promising sniper in the Army, but now she’s gone rogue—worse, she’s just landed in the middle of a Hostile Operations Team mission in the desert and blasted it all to hell.


Nick “Brandy” Brandon doesn’t expect to run into Victoria when he’s bugging out from a mission gone wrong. It’s been more than three years since she disappeared from the sniper course they were in together, and he’s finally stopped thinking about her killer curves and smart mouth.


But now she’s back—and she’s far more dangerous than Nick ever believed possible… Is she really a traitor? Or is there something more at stake? He has to decide fast—because time’s running out and too many lives hang in the balance…



   You can now purchase Hot Rebel on AmazoniBooksKobo, and Google Play.



Excerpt:


Driven by some emotion she couldn’t name, Victoria turned and walked back over to Nick. He was frowning at her when she reached up and pulled his head down. She pressed her lips to his cheek, felt the roughness of his stubble and breathed the smell of him—sand, spice, and cool water—deep into her lungs.


“Thanks for saving me,” she said, her lips close to his ear.


She started to step away, but he caught her close and turned his head, his lips meeting hers. The contact was shocking—and delicious in a way she hadn’t anticipated. She’d been kissed before, but this… this was better than any of those kisses had been.


His mouth was soft and hard against hers, his hands firm on her hips as he held her against him. The kiss was hot and tame all at once. Simultaneously the most arousing and most chaste kiss she’d ever had. He didn’t force her mouth open, didn’t thrust his tongue between her lips—he just kissed her hard and thoroughly before setting her away from him and taking a step backward.


And, God, she wanted his tongue so badly now. Wanted to feel it sliding against her own, stroking her senses higher.


But the kiss was over and he was looking at her, his jaw firm and a hard look in his eyes.


“You’re welcome,” he said, and it took her a moment to remember that she’d thanked him for saving her.


“I… I have to go.” Her cheeks flamed as she said it because he knew she had to leave as well as she did. The car was running, and she’d left the door open. She took a step backward, and then another.


Then she turned and got inside the car, determined not to look at him again. But she failed because she looked up, her gaze clashing with his right as she closed the door. And she didn’t look away as they drove off. Nick didn’t move from the spot she’d left him standing in.


It was only when the car turned and he was out of sight that she remembered how to breathe.

**SPOT LIGHT** Pride by Sandra Marton & Giveaway: 10/12/14




Book Information:


Book: Pride


Author: Sandra Marton


Release Date: September 30, 2014


Genre: Contemporary Romance


Summary:


Luca Bellini is tough. He’s had to be, to make it to the top. Luca grew up the son of an emotional Sicilian mother and a cold American father and learned, as an adult, that his entire life was a lie. How did he deal with that? By believing in control. In being in charge. Cheyenne McKenna is tough, too. She’s had to be, to make it to the top. Cheyenne grew up without a father, and with a mother who saw her as something to trade for cheap whiskey. How did Cheyenne deal with that? Right. By believing in control. By being in charge.


Cheyenne and Luca meet by accident. The sex sizzles, but Luca wants more. He wants to be in control. He wants dominance, and it doesn’t take long before he decides that the way he can achieve it is by leading Cheyenne into a world of silk scarves and velvet blindfolds, wide beds and lightly-bound wrists. But Luca is in for a lesson, too. He’s going to learn that what really separates them is not a fight for power but the folly of pride.


                      You can purchase Pride on AmazonB & N and on iBooks 


Excerpt:


“Rule number one is that I am in charge tonight.”


There it was again. That breathless feeling, as if she couldn’t draw enough air into her lungs. That whisper of excitement, sighing through her bones.


“I don’t want you to make rules for me. You don’t know anything about —”


He touched her.


She heard a soft whimper of pleasure. Had she made that sound?


“I’m going to take what I want, cara. What we both want.”


Images flashed through her head. Luca, moving over her. His hands, his body, his lips holding her captive.


Captive to his touch, to his kisses, to his slow possession.


A honeyed weakness stole through her muscles. She began to tremble.


“Rule number two,” he said, raising his head.


Her eyes widened with shock as his black silk tie replaced his hands around her wrists.


Her heart began to race.


“Luca?”


He kissed her again, hard, deep.


“Luca,” she whispered as he drew her arms above her head and fastened the ends of the tie to the slatted headboard.


“Rule number three, cara. Tonight, you belong to me.”

My Review:

     I was so excited to be reading the next book in the HOT Series by Lynn Raye Harris. I have fallen for these Military bad boys in this series. So when I was given the chance to read the next one I jumped on it. As I said in my review of Hot Shot, which you can read the full review of that book Here. That is the first book I had read in this series, even though it had been book five. But also as I said in that review I went back and got the other books and caught up. All of the books can be read as Stand Alones which I like, so you won't be too confused if you start later in the series. You just might not understand who everybody is or what it is they do, unless you go back and read the other books.

     Like all the other books in this series this book starts off with a bang and grabs your attention right away and holds it till the end. There's action, a little bit of mystery, a little bit of drama, a little bit of sexiness. Oh and can't forget about the boy's on the Hot team thrown into the mix.

    Nick "Brandy" Brandon is one of those guy's you know you shouldn't like, but you end up liking anyway. He's the cocky player type, who thinks any girl would fall at his feet. But he is also a intelligent sniper who knows how to do his job and do it well. I wouldn't mind falling for the likes of Nick. But I also admire Nick for standing up against his parents for something he believes in.

     Victoria is independent, sassy and likes to run her mouth a lot. She's also a little bit stubborn and definitely will go against the norm. But you quickly realize that Victoria is very loyal when she wants to be. And definitely believes in going after something, especially going after her sister, even if it means for her to go against her own country.

     I love this series and again can not wait until the next one comes out. I would give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. And would recommend it to anyone who loves the sexy Military Alpha Male type books.



      Hot Rebel comes out on Sept. 29th you can Pre-Order on AmazonB & NiBooks, and on Kobo.

      You can find out more about author Lynn Raye Harris and her books on her Website. You can also connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, and on Goodreads.

Maybe it’s the scars she hides so well, the secrets she can’t share. Carter knows all about that kind of pain, and he wants to help.

My Review:

       I was asked by the wonderful Cathryn Fox to do a review of this boxed set and I more than happily agreed to do it. Not only do I love Cathryn's books, but I was also looking to see if I found any new author's that I may enjoy. So normally I would do a whole long review on each book in this set. But I don't want to bore you and I'm actually on a library computer so I have a limited time to write this review.

     Anyways I'm babbling here.... On with the show, I'm going to write reviews for 3 of the books in here. A couple of the books that were included in this set were actually books that I have read in other sets. So they weren't really new to me. But I'm going to write a review for Debt of Honor, Yours to Take, and Handcuffed to the Sheikh.

Yours To Take:
        As I said I was asked by the wonderful Cathryn Fox to review this set, especially for her book. This was a enjoyable fast and quick read. I almost wish that this story was a little bit longer than it was. I really enjoyed Rebecca and Quinn's character's. If someone were to kidnap me for a  weekend I would definitely want it to be Quinn. I wouldn't mind him teaching me a few thing's. It was steamy and hot and everything delicious. Like I said it was a fun and quick read.

Debt Of Honor:
       This book was the 1st story in the set and the 1st story I read. And it was one of those books that I normally don't read much of and when I first started to read it I was like "uhhhh." I found myself not wanting to read it but at the same time I couldn't stop reading it. In the end though I really did enjoy it and found that I enjoyed the character's in this book. I will warn you though there is some female on female action in this story. So if you don't enjoy reading that you might not enjoy this story.

Handcuffed to the Sheikh:
     After reading Debt of Honor, I decided to go ahead and read Handcuffed to the Sheikh. This was another fast and quick story. It was steamy and hot and so much more. I loved the character's Maxine and Sayd. This story made me laugh a little bit and it made me really feel for Maxine (who can't remember she's married to Sayd) and for Sayd because he loves Maxine and just wants her to remember their love. It's another one of the stories in this set that I wish just a little bit longer than it actually was.

               Overall I would give this boxed set a 4.5 out of 5 Stars. It was thoroughly enjoyable and I liked all of the books in them. I would recommend this boxed set to anyone who loves any kind of story that has a little bit of everything in it.
 

                     You can purchase the Captured Boxed Set on Amazon and B & N

Seems doable—until Maggie’s date stands her up, leaving only one option: the sexy stud who just moved in upstairs. The problem? He and Maggie can’t stop fighting—and that’s just the beginning. 
 
His name is Tyler Wells and the last thing he needs is his neighbor distracting him with her girl-next-door smile and sharp tongue. Tyler’s in Chicago for one reason: to woo back his selfish ex in order to reclaim the child he once thought was his—and that means keeping Maggie out of his bed. A tall order, since Maggie has become a bigger temptation than he ever expected to face. But before they can even consider leaving the past behind, Maggie and Tyler must accept a brand-new dare: real, forever love.
